In a Jewish neighborhood in London, pro-Palestinian protestors shouted “F*** the Jews. Rape their daughters” as they drove in a convoy of cars toting Palestinian flags over the weekend.
“Khayber Khaybar (kill) oh Jews, Mohammad’s army is returning,” was shouted by protestors in the streets who were wearing t-shirts with pictures of Saddam Hussein. Other protests around the city featured the destruction Israeli flags and shouts of anti-Zionist slogans.
Four individuals from the car protest were arrested, London’s police service confirmed. However, the atmosphere still isn’t “very good” and the Jewish community is in a state of “distress,” according to a local.
A security notice has been issued because of the rise in antisemitic incidents in the U.K. amid the conflict between Israel and Palestinian terrorist organizations Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
A charity working to ensure the safety of the Jewish community said it expects the “antisemitism to continue, or indeed worsen, until the conflict in Israel and Gaza subsides.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said there would be an increased presence of police in Jewish neighborhoods.
In the Netherlands, similar protests featured overt support for the Taliban.
In Belgium, pro-Palestinian protestors shouted “death to Jews.”
The rhetoric from pro-Palestinian protestors on the opposite side of the Atlantic Ocean also featured hateful and extremist rhetoric. “Long live the intifada” was repeatedly chanted as well as “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”
The statements are slogans of Hamas, which is a U.S. designated terrorist organization. The intifada is the Palestinian uprising and means in Arabic “shaking off.”
Two locals participating in a pro-Palestinian march in Washington, D.C. this reporter spoke with said they’ve felt very strongly “for decades” about the movement. They said that although they’ve been accused of antisemitism, the conflict has nothing to do with religion.
“Because they’ve put it all in terms of religion and it’s not about religion,” the protestor said. “It’s about aggressive land takeover and basically settler colonialism not respecting the fact that other people share this earth with you…”
Another protestor argued something similar, saying that anti-Zionism isn’t anti-Semitism and that Jews were “used” during the Holocaust to form Israel.
“Number one, Palestinian people should understand language and know definitions because Palestinians and Jews are both Semitic people,” he said. “It just means a region… Semitic means in that region. So, to be anti-Zionist doesn’t mean that you’re antisemitic, it means that to be anti-Zionism means that you are against the occupation of Palestine and against a homeland based on religion.”
He added that there should be a secular state in what is currently Israel and that it shouldn’t be based on a “religion or whatever that so-called thousands of years ago occured.”
“Basically, to be anti-Zionism is not to be anti-Jew… One of my closest friends is Jewish and he’s anti-Zionist so it’s kind of a misnomer and that’s sort of the brush that they paint anyone that’s against Israel is antisemitic and that’s not the truth at all. Actually, to me, it’s one of the greatest crimes that a people, the Jewish people during the Holocaust were used to create a settler state in the Middle East or whatever….”
In Seattle, pro-Palestinian protestors also shouted “long live the Intifada” as they stole an Israeli flag from pro-Israel protestors and set it ablaze.
Radio talk show host Jason Rantz, was assaulted by an anti-Israel protestor.
“In the process of covering the event, which was already tense for me as a Jew, I was assaulted by a fringe activist,” Rantz wrote of the incident. “I was then summarily kicked out of the public rally. As the woman hit me with a Palestinian flag, anti-Israel activists in the crowd did nothing. Some of the assault was caught on cell phone video. I wasn’t the only Jew assaulted.”
In Dearborn, Michigan, pro-Palestinian protestors called for an “intifada.”
In Canada, a Jewish man was assaulted. Others were also reportedly attacked by the mob.
In Montreal, Jews were chased and had rocks thrown at them. Some of the attackers were reportedly armed with knives.

Biden Administration Sacrificing Saudi-Israel Deal on Altar of Palestinian Statehood
Iran kicked out one-third of its nuclear inspectors. The Biden administration is on the verge of getting Iran to release five hostages in exchange for unfreezing $6 billion of Iranian cash, and potentially five Iranian prisoners held in US custody. As Iran is on the march, a breakthrough in Middle East peace can’t come fast enough.
The best way to check Iranian ambitions in the region would be the normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel. While such a deal would be “tectonic,” the Biden administration is destroying the prospects for normalization because it continues to be obsessed with linking the deal to Palestinian nationalism.
More than any of the known Palestinian demands to date, the Biden administration is fixated on Palestinian statehood. And the administration continues to browbeat Israel on that point. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has recently claimed that both Saudi Arabia and the Biden administration view a two-state solution an important piece to any deal. Previously, Blinken told Israel’s minister of strategic affairs, Ron Dermer, that Israel would be “misreading the situation” if it doesn’t think that significant concessions to the Palestinians would be required to broker a Saudi-Israel deal. White House National Security Council spokesman Jake Sullivan also told Dermer that that Israel will need to give significant concessions to the Palestinians so that the Biden administration can sell the deal to Democrats in Congress.
One unconfirmed Saudi press report stated that the Saudis have walked away from talks, due to concerns that Israel wouldn’t agree to placate the Palestinians. However, both an American and an Israeli official have asserted that that report is false.
What is more likely is that the Saudis are taking a pragmatic, not absolutist, approach to a Palestinian track. According to an unnamed Arab official who is familiar with recent talks between Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority (PA) earlier this month, Saudi Arabia is now communicating to the PA that it is willing to abandon the two-state solution as a pre-condition for normalization between Saudi Arabia and Israel, and that the PA needs to acclimate its demands to that fact. Additionally, Saudi Arabia has proposed to re-start aid to the PA, halted since 2016, in efforts to get the PA to at least tacitly support normalization.
The Israeli response to Palestinian nationalism is much more publicly opposed. Israeli National Security Advisor Tzachi Hanegbi has rejected the idea of Palestinian statehood as part of the deal. Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich said the concept of Israeli concessions to the Palestinians as a part of normalization is “a fiction” as such a deal “has nothing to do with Judea and Samaria [commonly referred to in the West as the ‘West Bank’].”
Israel’s hostility to Palestinian nationalism is well founded. As the Oslo Accords turn 30 years old, the so called “peace process” has failed to bring peace to Israel, as Israel has had to defend itself against at least five warsand countless smaller violent conflicts against the Palestinians since 1993. PA President Mahmoud Abbas continued to show his true bigoted face with a recent anti-Semitic diatribe, part and parcel of the systemic anti-Semitism and incitement to violence of the PA.
The Biden administration continues to stand in the way of Saudi Arabia’s normalization of relations with Israel, as it continues to pursue maximalist demands on Palestinian statehood. This is a non-starter for Israel, and not a top concern for Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia, like Israel, is primarily focused on using the deal to leverage its strength against Iran – as Saudi Arabia is looking to secure US support for advanced weapons, a NATO-like alliance, and civilian nuclear energy. In order to make a sustainable counterweight against Iranian aggression, the Biden administration must jettison its demands for Palestinian statehood, and at the very least answer Saudi concerns with a serious counter-offer. Failure to buttress Israel, Saudi Arabia and our Gulf allies will likely result in a resurgent Iran.
