freedom required: young protesting palestinians & anti zionist orthodox jews unite in london march

TODAY it was business as usual for Israeli neo-apartheid in Palestine; assassinations, torture, kidnappings, and now starvation as they try to force 8 million Palestinians into submission by denying them food.

And, while they block imports of food, the Israelies are dumping their toxic waste on the occupied territories.

All sponsored by the USA Corporation (Limited Liability of course), without whose generous donations, none of this would be possible.

Above: Protesting against Israeli racism: in Britain they can expect to go home after this - in Palestine they can expect to get shot. Shame on the Blair government for supporting the neo-apartheid government in Israel.

Above & right: Orthodox members of 'Jews United Against Zionism' supported the march. They got a big cheer from the crowd as they were introduced by the MC: "a big smack in the faces of those who say we are anti Semitic. We are brothers and sisters." Their Rabbi, Yaakov Weiss said before the march "We see the denial of self-determination of this long suffering people as antithetical to everything the Torah and our faith stands for." He said the Zionists in Israel "have created a garrison state; the most dangerous place on the face of Earth for Jews to live, and they have dragged us into a needless conflict with the Palestinians."

'Jews for Justice for Palestine' spokeswoman Irine Brugel told a cheering crowd in Trafalgar Sq "We are appalled at the attempt of the US and Israel to starve the Palestinians into submission".

Other speakers included the New/Newer Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn who said "There is no greater injustice in this world than the treatment of the Palestinian people."

The event was organised by the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.
