The November 11 Rally in London Was Anti-Israel and Violent; Here Is the Proof

More than a month since the most lethal and barbaric antisemitic attack since the Holocaust was perpetrated by Palestinians in Gaza, pro-Palestinian demos have taken place weekly in London.

All of these marches have failed to condemn the Hamas massacre or demand the release of the 240 hostages (including children) illegally held by the terror group.

In fact, since the very beginning, the marches have included chants, banners and other actions indicating varying levels of support for the mass murder of Jews committed by Hamas, a proscribed terror group

Further as the Telegraph reported last week, half of the main organizers of the November 11 march, which coincided with Armistice Day, were affiliated with Hamas. This includes Muhammad Kathem Sawalha, who led the terror group in the West Bank in the late 1980s and is alleged to have “masterminded” its military strategy with involvement as recently as 2019, before moving to Britain.

As we noted in a post about a previous march, which was similarly framed by British media outlets as “peaceful,” reporters seemed determined to reach that conclusion regardless of the facts on the ground.

While it’s been noted that many marched peacefully, many acted in an openly antisemitic fashion, which included displaying grotesque caricatures of puppetmasters, references to Zionism as a disease, and placards and recited chants that called for Palestine to be free “from the river to the sea’ — a widely understood as a call for the elimination of the state of Israel and the murder or total displacement of its seven-million strong Jewish population.

And there was violence at the November 11 march.

Here’s some of the evidence undermining media reports suggesting that this most recent march, which drew hundreds of thousands of people, was “peaceful.”

State of this. This Iranian man holds a sign saying “Hamas is Isis”. Even that is too much for these masked men, who attack him. Lucky @joshglancy wasn’t walking past in his kippah at the time. The shame of Britain. Paging @metpoliceuk pic.twitter.com/ptpq9xRxns

Now, the gaslighting reporting on the march:

Channel 4 News 

Their report last night by presenter Jane Dodge (“Massive London march for Palestinians as far-right protest turn violent,” Nov. 11) on the protests highlighted a relatively small number of far right counter-protesters, while almost completely erasing the pro-Palestinian extremism.

The Independent

The Indy — in several reports yesterday– also focused almost entirely on relatively small number of far-right counter-protesters, while obfuscating the hate and extremism by the far, far larger pro-Palestinian demonstrators.

The Guardian 

The Guardian didn’t just ignore the antisemitism, thuggery and calls for violence, but wrote the following in of their major report on the protests (“Hundreds of thousands rally for Gaza in London as police arrest far-right protesters,” Nov. 11): “Hundreds of thousands of people marched peacefully through central London yesterday to protest against Israel’s continued bombardment of Gaza”

A photo gallery they published similarly managed to avoid any photos depicting the extremism displayed by many of the marchers.

The Telegraph

In contrast with The Guardian, Channel 4 News and The Independent, The Telegraph reported extensively on the antisemitic hate on display at yesterday’s march, and included an official editorial titled “A day of chaos that shamed Britain.”

Their reporting also noted that “several of the [antisemitic and extremist] stickers and placards held by protesters appeared to have been produced by the Friends of al-Aqsa group (one one the main organisers of the march), founded and chaired by Ismael Patel, a Leicester-based Islamist who has repeatedly voiced his support for Hamas.”

They were also the only outlet we reviewed which reported on the pro-Palestinian demonstrators harassing Jews going to synagogue in northwest London — per this tweet.

Online Live Chat Service for Jews to Connect With Rabbis Sees 300% Increase Since Oct. 7 Attacks

A live web service provided by Aish.com that allows users to speak directly with one of the Jewish organization’s leading rabbis has seen a 300 percent increase in usage since the Oct. 7 Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel.

More than 5,000 chat responses (over 225 per day) are received each month, according to Aish, which added in a press release that many of the chats turn into extended conversations, sometimes on WhatsApp, in which rabbis help unaffiliated or disconnected Jewish users reconnect with their Jewish identities and form bonds with other Jews.

The Jewish organization said it believes the increase in usage of its live web chat service is due to the global rise in antisemitism and a newfound curiosity about Israel following Oct. 7, as well as a “yearning for meaning and community in the face of life’s uncertainties, and a desire for deeper meaning and spirituality in the face of a fast-paced modern culture where spiritual needs have been put on a backburner for too long.”

“We’re hearing from so many Jews who feel profoundly disconnected, whether due to living in areas with little Jewish community or lack of affiliation growing up,” said Rabbi Tzvi Broker, who oversees Aish.com‘s Live Chat. “The personal nature of these interactions, coupled with their anonymity, creates a safe space to ask questions and begin exploring. Having a live rabbi to connect and share with, has been a draw for many, and we’re seeing lives transformed as a result.”

Among their efforts, Broker and his team have helped people on the chat slowly incorporate Jewish rituals and traditions into their lives, and have connected them with peers through the organization’s new online community Aish+ so they can continue learning and engaging with other Jews.

“It’s amazing to witness lives being transformed in such profound ways,” said Broker. “Jews around the world are finding threads of connection to their heritage, and tapping into the depth and wisdom of our tradition to find meaning, community, and resilience in these challenging times.”

Bob Diener, the founder of hotels.com and the seed funder of Aish.com’s live chat, added in a statement: “The chat has been a powerful way for people to connect one-on-one with a spiritual leader and have their unique questions answered in a non-threatening and non-intimidating way. The chat’s rabbis are connecting so many people to their roots who otherwise don’t know where to go for guidance.”

“The chats have had a deep impact on many disconnected from the Jewish community,” said Aish CEO Rabbi Steven Burg. “Each of the people we connect with demonstrates a broad yearning to explore Jewish spirituality, peoplehood, and identity and that is why they have been turning to Aish for connection and guidance. We are happy to provide both while connecting them with local Jewish communities in their area, if there is one, to continue their journey.”

Jerry Seinfeld Ridicules Anti-Israel Heckler Interrupting His Show in Australia: ‘You Moron, Get Out of Here’

Jewish comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld roasted an anti-Israel protester who tried to disrupt his comedy show in Sydney, Australia, at the Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday night.

Videos from the scene showed a male heckler in the audience repeatedly shout, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” a slogan that has been widely used as a call for the destruction of Israel.

While the disruptive audience member continued to chant in support of Israel’s extermination, Seinfeld ridiculed him, sarcastically telling the audience:  “We have a genius, ladies and gentlemen! He’s solved the Middle East! He’s solved it: It’s the Jewish comedians, that’s who we have to get! They’re the ones doing everything.”

“Go ahead, keep going,” Seinfeld told the anti-Israel heckler as the audience laughed and cheered. “They’re gonna start punching you in about three second so I would try and get all of your genius out so we can all learn from you. It’s a comedy show you moron, get out of here.”

The heckler was eventually escorted out of the arena by security personnel and as he walked out of the venue, Seinfeld mocked him some more by sarcastically saying: “You’re really influencing everyone here. We’re all on your side because you have made your point so well and in the right venue. You’ve come to the right place for a political conversation. Tomorrow we will read in the paper: ‘Middle East, 100 percent solved thanks to man at the Qudos Arena stopping Jew comedian.’ They stop him and everyone in the Middle East went, ‘Oh my god, let’s just get along.’”

The “Seinfeld” creator then jokingly suggested that to solve issues with “indigenous Aboriginal people and the white people” maybe he should harass Australian comedian Jim Jefferies during a comedy show in New York because “if this works, that will work.”

“You have to go 20,000 miles from the problem and screw up a comedian. That is how you solve world issues,” Seinfeld quipped.

Seinfeld had a number of his comedy shows recently disrupted by anti-Israel activists because of his support for Israel since the Oct. 7 terrorist attacks. Seinfeld’s commencement speech at Duke University was also interrupted by similar protesters, who staged a walk-out shortly after he was introduced on stage.

During an interview last month, Seinfeld addressed protesters by saying: “It’s so dumb. In fact, when we get protesters occasionally, I love to say to the audience, ‘You know, I love that these young people, they’re trying to get engaged with politics … we just have to correct their aim a little bit.”

Ratted out: Phoebe Maltz Bovy on the end of feeling a need to ask if every contrived pop-culture trend is good for the Jews

As an expert (self-proclaimed) in the female heterosexual gaze, I took note of the trend of the “hot rodent man.” Does this mean you’re attracted to the friendly mascot from Orkin Exterminator Co.? Maybe you do, maybe he’s tremendous, but no, “hot rodent man” refers to what is essentially the male equivalent of jolie laide, […]
