Crowd of around 30,000 supporters of apartheid state cheers right-wing antisemitic pastor, boos speaker who says he wants to see an end to the killing of children
A crowd of right-wing supporters of Israeli apartheid and genocide booed a speaker who said he wanted an end to the killing of children – but cheered an extremist right-wing ‘pastor’ who has been called the US’s most powerful antisemite – and chanted ‘no ceasefire’ as Republican Speaker of the Congress Mike Jones said asking for a ceasefire was ‘outrageous’.
The crowd, claimed by its supporters to number more than 300,000 but in reality about thirty thousand according to video footage, also made the chant in an attempt to drown out centrist speaker Van Jones as he tried to appeal for humanity toward Gazans and for all lives and deaths to be treated equally:
Israel has killed as many as fourteen thousand Gazan civilians, around half of them children and another quarter women. The UK House of Commons yesterday voted against calling for a ceasefire, with both Tory PM Rishi Sunak and so-called ‘opposition leader’ Keir Starmer supporting Israel’s ‘right’ to keep bombing and starving the more than two million Palestinians in Gaza in its blatant programme of genocide and ethnic cleansing.
