International Socialists Sponsor Rally to Support Hamas in London (Video)

Several hundred pro-Hamas radicals and Socialist Worker Party members held a rally today in London.
The signs they were handing out had the Socialist Worker Party logo on them.

The socialists and pro-Hamas supporters chanted, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

The Belfast Telegraph reported:

Protesters gathered near the Israeli embassy in London have condemned the British Government’s stance on the conflict in Gaza.

With placards, flags and chants, the activists branded Israel a “terror state” and showed their solidarity with the people of the Palestinian enclave.

Speakers took to a podium to condemn the Government after Foreign Secretary William Hague said the Hamas regime in Gaza bore “principal responsibility” for the escalation of violence.

Organisers claimed that “thousands” of protesters had joined the rally. There was a major police presence in London’s Kensington area, with barriers and a gate blocking the road leading to the embassy.

Sarah Colborne, director of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, said protesters wanted to show they were “vehemently opposed” to the Foreign Office’s position.

She said: “We are insisting that the British Government uphold international law and human rights and tells Israel to end its war now. It’s very clear what is happening here – Gaza is under siege, Israel started this by assassinating the person who was trying to negotiate a long-term truce with Israel.

“It’s very clear who started this and who is suffering – 39 Palestinians have been killed so far and over 390 have been wounded. This war has to stop.”

    It makes sense because Socialists, Communists, Nazis, and Islamic Extremists share their love of totalitarianism.

  • http://none tommy mc donnell

    the so-called “peace movements” of the world have always supported war by the communists.

  • valerie

    If they really wanted to support the residents of Gaza, they’d tell those a$$hole terrorists to stop bombing their neighbors. It really, really is that simple.

  • Minky Wench

    target rich environment. don’t waste the opportunity!

  • Stella Baskomb

    “It’s very clear who started this . . . ”

    Yes–as usual, the Palestinians. This time, by shooting off a few hundred rockets supplied by Iran and Hamas, targeting Israeli cities and Israeli citizens.

    ” . . . and who is suffering . . . ”

    Yes, as usual, the Palestinians. One might think some learning would eventually take place. One might think that the Palestinians would choose better leaders. It appears one would be wrong on both counts.

  • Buzzy

    Hamas is not a socialist organization. They govern by inflicting terror on everyone they don’t agree with, kinda like the US liberals.

    They were out in Portland today too.

    #8 Stella, I was coming here to say the exact same thing!

    “Israel started this by assassinating the person who was trying to negotiate a long-term truce with Israel.”

    These people are absolutely delusional. You simply cannot expect to fire off hundreds of rockets into civilian areas of a neighboring country and expect no retaliation. Over and over again we see they bring it upon themselves by doing this. And over and over again we see the international community chastising Israel for having the gall to defend itself. Insanity rules the day, as has become the norm.

  • jony101

    they said Israel assassinated the leader who was trying to negotiate a long term truce? muslims don’t negotiate, they try and make you think they are negotiating while rearming in the background. how do you negotiate while shooting rockets at the people you are suppose to be trying to negotiate with?
    The protestors never mention the rocket attacks that got the hamas peaceful “leader” whacked, it is very strange that is never mentioned?

    We need another look at 9-11 and the communist, socialist, progressive traitors that might have been in on it with the Islamofascist.

    Well, I sort of agree with the signs those demonstrators are carrying ….

    … except, of course, that the signs aren’t punctuated correctly …

    I’m *SURE* they’re supposed to read: “Gaza, stop the massacre!”

  • dba_vagabond_trader

    Massacre, if only Israel weren’t so damned humane to these hyenas.

  • Annoyed

    No Nation especially us are saying its the palestinians fault so the condeming of Hague is rediculous. The condeming of the ISLAMIST supporters of the pagan moon god Allah Who will murder un repentantly and use children and people in general, as shields are to blame. Hammas is a terrorist organisation along with Hezbolah. If it wasn’t for the directive that is apparent that in the eyes of all muslims in the middle east and it would seems left wing media like the BBC The Jews should be wiped clean from the planet. Israel or the kingdom of israel was established wqell before the cancer islam but the arabs tend to believe the world belongs to them. Israel are no angels but deserve the right to live in peace among a region dirtied by the arab and its vile religion.

    Is anyone following the IDF twitter feed? I just cannot imagine the horrors people are facing. Been checking the tv ‘news’ as well, but it seems like we are not getting complete coverage. But I guess, it IS war, so, maybe we are not ‘allowed’ to? Anyway, here is the IDF twitter feed if anyone is interested: https://twitter.com/idfspokesperson

    Lessons Not Learned

    Mychal Massie
    May 16, 2006

    George Wilhelm Hegel is credited with saying, “What experience and history teach is this – that people and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principle.”

    To merely suggest that there is an abundance of wisdom contained in that 21-word sentence is a gross understatement. And nowhere at present is its truth more evident than in the mishandling of the illegal immigrant situation.

    Just as radical Islam is not a religion, it is a murderous cult of unparalleled evil, and just as abortion is not about choice, but the selfish, paganistic murder of innocent unborn children, illegals are not simply nice migratory agrarians searching for a better life. They are criminals, they are dishonest and they are usurpers, ultimately controlled by those with a political agenda.

    Jimmy Carter’s ineptness and treachery led to the unleashing of Islamic terrorism in the modern civilized world. Bill Clinton’s non-responsiveness after the World Trade Center bombings in 1993 gave rise to the bombings of American interests around the world and resulted in Sept. 11. President Bush’s coddling of Islam as a peaceful religion has been evidenced by beheadings, Fallujah and manipulative attacks against journalists and talk-program hosts by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

    A boot on the throat of Islamic fundamentalism and the conviction to challenge groups like CAIR would have spared America and her citizens much pain. However, our government and far too many citizens – having learned nothing from history – played pity-pat with the devil to our harm. As I continue to point out, we now capitulate to illegal aliens at the risk of the destruction of our way of life.

    We must be inflexible hardliners when it comes to defending and enforcing immigration laws and when it comes to defending our borders. One primary reason is, as Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies correctly points out: “We cannot allow illegals turned legal into a well-developed welfare state.” Doing so would create a fatal, debilitative drain on the middle class.

    Internal Revenue Service figures show the bottom 50 percent of wage earners paid 3.46 percent of all income taxes in 2003. Yet we know they consumed the greatest amount of government sponsored aid and entitlements. This group is comprised of couples filing jointly who earned less than $29,019 in that same year.

    Illegals are already consuming tremendous amounts of unwarranted government subsidies provided at taxpayer expense. Then factor in the additional monetary drain that would be associated with over 12 million illegals suddenly given carte blanche access to federal programs such as Medicaid, Section-8 housing, and food-assistance programs. Many of them already freely enjoy the benefits of programs like WIC (Women, Infants and Children).

    It is an undeniable fact that the majority of illegals are – at best – poorly educated, low-income workers. And if this single fact is to be disputed, then there remains no supportive argument for those who claim illegals do the work Americans won’t do. But I get ahead of myself.

    There is a reason that legal immigration has been strictly regulated – maintaining strict limits on how many unskilled, skilled and professional immigrant applicants were admitted each year. Accordingly, how will creating another dependent class better America? What will creating another dependent class do to the already supposedly strained resources of the middle class?

    Americans sat on their voices pursuant to the homosexual agenda until we were confronted with the redefining of marriage. Americans were passively ambivalent pursuant to liberal socialist judges, until Kelo vs. Connecticut opened the door for private property to be seized and given to private industry.

    America cannot afford to applaud the president for a promise to strengthen our borders, without a specifically defined way to repatriate the illegal aliens residing within our borders – no matter how long they have been here.

    If history has repeatedly taught one thing, it is that there are instances where hostile belligerence and indifference on our part is not only acceptable – it is in the interest of our secure well-being to be nothing less. This is a seminal moment pursuant to the future of our culture. We cannot afford to be nice. We can only afford to preserve our nation as one with liberty and justice for all legal citizens – not criminal vagabonds who bully their way in.

    Happy faces….Nice people, peaceful.
    Makes me SO want to be one

  • ALL_IS_LOST

    I agree….Gaza would you please stop terrorizing Israel? Isn’t that what the signs meant?

    Palestinians were Syrians. Then Syria attacked Israel and got their butts kicked by what could only be the grace of God, and suddenly they are Palestinians.

    Hamas bombs Israel
    Israel fights back Israel are somehow the bad guys…typical a Jewish run establishment in Belfast’s castle court shopping centre was attacked on Thursday by pro terror supporters..this is a regular occurrence..where is the global outcry about that? Oh my mistake they’re Jewish and the Jewish are bad because the palestinians say so! Wear red and show your solidarity with Israel!

  • US Navy Corpseman

    If they’re so concerned about Palestinians, why are they in Britain??

    Israel has shown far more restraint than I would – I’d carpet bomb the neighborhoods
    harboring the rocket launchers with cluster munitions. They’ll be picking them up for weeks – better watch where they step or they’ll need a boatload of crutches.

    What a bunch of useless low information idiotic fools. If you want freedom and peace for Gaza hold a protest to tell Hamas to quit launching hundreds upon hundreds of rockets into Israel from behind the skirts of their women and from their children’s schools.
