“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!” How many passing Londoners realized that this was a call for genocide and/or subjugation? From IslamOnline, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
LONDON, October 31, 2005 (IslamOnline.net) – At least two thousand demonstrators, including several anti-Zionism Jews, marched though London on Sunday, October 30, to mark the annual Al-Quds Day.
“It is our duty as Muslims to attend every single time, because no one in the world is listening to the truth,” Zaynab Ziaei of Manchester told IslamOnline.net.
“We come every year to show what the truth really is.”
Adults and youth of all ages marched enthusiastically to the quick beat of drums and chants as they fervently yelled slogans against US President George Bush, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and Israeli Premier Ariel Sharon.
Transforming the Iranian flag into a bandana tied around checkered Palestinian scarves, girls walked hand in hand chanting, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!”
Bystanders clapped as the demonstration proceeded towards Trafalgar Square.
