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.

Islamic Jihad shows off ‘tunnel city’ for next attack on Israel

Mohammed Raad, the head of the Hezbollah parliamentary bloc in the Lebanese parliament asked for a mere $9 billion to destroy Israel completely. “The resistance only needs $9 billion and there will be nothing left called Israel in the region” he said over the weekend.

Meanwhile, another terrorist organization shows how they too are planning to obliterate the state of Israel. Islamic Jihad gave a media tour in Gaza, where the terror group touted its offensive and defensive tunnel systems.

“In a ‘tunnel city’ under the sandy soils of southern Gaza, Palestinian terrorists are preparing for the next conflict with Israel, as tensions in Jerusalem threaten to escalate” reports the Times of Israel.

The underground tunnels “leave no trace on the surface” and entrances are “discreetly tucked into the foot of a small hill.” The tunnels are also “complete with electric lights, a ventilation system and telecoms cables, the tunnels also have small rooms for storing weapons and ammunition.”

Abu Hamza, Al-Quds Brigade spokesman of Islamic Jihad said “the tunnels have been repaired and the rocket stocks have been replenished” since last year’s war. He also thanked Iran for its support for helping to rebuild and replace its weapons cache.

Another source who asked not to be named, said the terror group has “a large number of offensive tunnels that stretch deep into [Israel] and are linked up to a system of drones.” He also said the group’s rockets are capable of reaching the whole of Israel.

“The rockets are on high alert and we’re waiting for the leadership to decide” said a gunman sitting close to one of the tunnel entrances with a group of gunmen under the trees.

Times of Israel reports on the latest tensions:

Weeks of deadly violence including a series of Palestinian terror attacks in Israel, Palestinian riots and a police crackdown around Jerusalem’s Temple Mount/Al-Aqsa Mosque, and stepped up IDF operations in the West Bank have prompted Islamic Jihad to threaten an escalation.

After two deadly attacks in Tel Aviv and Bnai Brak, the IDF carried out large-scale raids in the West Bank, notably the Jenin area from which the terrorists hailed.

Those operations sparked intense firefights which killed several fighters from Islamic Jihad, which is supported by Israel’s nemesis Iran.

And on Monday evening, a rocket was fired from Gaza into Israel, prompting an Israeli airstrike against a weapons factory.

No faction has yet claimed responsibility, but the incident — the first of its type since January — heightened fears of a further escalation.
