Giving the 2019 Al Quds demonstration the blue and white treatment - by David Collier

...Just three of four years ago, the entire discussion took place on ‘their turf’ -not anymore. We have come to understand that there is no point talking about settlements with someone who denies the Holocaust. Nor any reason to entertain discussion over a partial Israeli withdrawal with someone who seeks to destroy Israel. We have learnt that there is no point negotiating anything at all with antisemites and we recognise that often, when they say ‘Zionist’, they actually mean ‘Jew’. Those who have been fighting against the haters have successfully shifted the discussion to where it needs to be – talking about and rejecting the message of hate. We still have much work to do, but it is clear that those people don’t own the streets anymore.

Al Quds returned to London. This year there were far fewer people attending. They also had to march without their precious Hezbollah flag, as the terrorist group has recently been proscribed by the British Government. Each year their route also gets smaller. The days that these terrorist supporters were allowed to march proudly down Oxford Street have gone. This year they were sent down Marsham Street into Horseferry Road, along to Parliament Square and up towards Whitehall. In total they had permission to walk for less than a mile. Even then, they were not going to be allowed on our streets without opposition. This year Al Quds got the blue and white treatment.

The Al Quds rally is an Islamic invention, that was introduced into the calendar by the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979 in ‘opposition to the existence of Israel’. The London branch of the Islamic hate festival is organised by the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC). Other radical Islamist activist organisations such as Inminds have a visible presence. When I view the key activists at these events, I recognise many from my research into hard-core antisemitism. These people have a real problem with Jews. There are also many terrorist supporters amongst them.
