Hundreds turn out for anti-Israel march in London

Several hundred people took part in the “Al-Quds Day March” in London on Sunday (18th).  Waving Palestinian flags and shouting cries of “End the occupation,” and “Boycott Israel,” the participants came out to express their rage at the “Jewish state’s treatment of Palestinians.”

A smaller counter protest was led by Israeli supporters, mostly members of the local Jewish and Israeli community.

Israel advocates had called on London Mayor Sadiq Khan to cancel the march in the British capital due to concerns  that the activity propagates displays of anti-Semitism and terrorism.  Nearly 10,000 people signed a petition to have the march canceled.
