As the U.K. takes pause to remember our brave men and women in uniform, anti-Israel protesters took it upon themselves to express their appreciation for the Holocaust.
Throughout the day, clashes occurred between pro-Britain and anti-Israel demonstrators. An Iranian man carrying a sign saying ‘Hamas is ISIS’ was attacked by a man with a knife. Others chanted antisemitic slogans near the cenotaph.
Another individual, when asked if he supported Hamas – the terrorist organization governing Gaza, he said: “If the West feels sorry for the Israeli Zionists, why don’t they give a place in Germany? Why don’t they go to Hitler’s back garden and make occupation there?” “Hitler knew how to deal with these people,” he claimed.
The same man said that the terror attacks levied against Israel by Hamas terrorists on October 7th which left 1400 Israelis dead and another 240 kidnapped, were a “wake up call.”
While some in anti-Israel protest called for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, much of the crowd reflected the views of the man interviewed. ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’ could be her chanted and the phrase could be seen on signs held by protesters. The slogan popularized by Hamas supporters describes an act of ethnic cleansing against Israelis who live between the river Jordan and the Mediterranean ocean; the entirety of Israel.

The tensions and violence that took place during the Remembrance Day ceremony in the United Kingdom on November 11th, 2023, exemplified the ongoing conflict between pro-Britain and anti-Israel demonstrators. As the country paused to remember the fallen heroes, the event was marred by clashes, attacks, and the expression of hate speech against Israelis.
Anti-Israel protestors engaged in acts of violence and made antisemitic remarks, attacking individuals who spoke out against Hamas and expressing support for the terrorist organization. The violence escalated to the point where an Iranian man carrying a sign denouncing Hamas was attacked with a knife, and other demonstrators chanted antisemitic slogans near the cenotaph.
One individual interviewed during the protests expressed support for Hamas and made deplorable remarks, suggesting that Israel should have been occupied by Hitler and expressing admiration for how Hitler “dealt with” Jews. These shocking statements reflect the deep-seated antisemitism and support for terrorist activities that were on display during the event.
The disturbing and hateful rhetoric extended to justifying the terror attacks by Hamas against Israel, with one protestor dismissively referring to the appalling loss of life as a mere “wake up call.” The atmosphere at the protests reflected a pervasive sentiment that demonizes and incites violence against Israelis, as evidenced by the popular chant calling for the ethnic cleansing of Israel, from the river to the sea.
The escalating tensions and violence at the event underscore the importance of addressing and combating antisemitism and terrorism, as well as upholding the values of peace, remembrance, and respect for all lives. The presence of such hateful and violent sentiments in a setting meant to honor fallen soldiers is deeply troubling and serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing conflicts and threats faced by Israelis and those who support peace and justice in the region.
