'Al-Quds' (Jerusalem) day in London

Sunday was celebrated as 'al-Quds' (Jerusalem) day in London. The featured speaker was Tony Blair's Muslim convert sister-in-law, Lauren Booth, who called on Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon to 'liberate' Jerusalem. And no, these people aren't looking for a 'two-state solution.'

Let's go to the videotape.

Much, much more here.

I'm beginning to think it's time for Jews to stop visiting London. I say that as someone who probably changes planes there 2-3 times per year (often including a trip into the city). I'm seriously having second thoughts about it. While Trafalgar Square wasn't full on Sunday, that doesn't make London any less hostile to us.

Oh yeah, guess who else was there.

Look at the screen in the middle of the square.

65 million people in Britain and a relative handful of idiots and fellow travellers turn up, not exactly a hotbed of anti semitism.

Hi Carl,

I'm a Londoner and I promise you that London is normally a safe and welcoming city, but the authorities are too permissive when it comes to dealing with these nasty fringe groups. I know lots of people who aren't Jewish and are furious about this, but I will say that this kind of event is relatively rare. Trafalgar Square is normally full of tourists and kids playing in the fountains.

The reason you've probably heard about this is because there are so many people in the UK complaining about it to their MPs etc, and the blog author has done a great job in publicising it.

I sincerely hope you don't stop visiting, but I have to admit it would be understandable.
