British Shari'a Watch

From JPOST:

A central London rally organized by the British Palestine Solidarity Campaign on Saturday heard Respect Party MP George Galloway advocate a general boycott of Israel, as well as other speeches calling for Israel’s destruction.

Dark gray clouds poured heavy rain on London’s Trafalgar Square, as a crowd waving Palestine flags and anti-Israel banners filled the square to hear speakers shout vitriolic anti-Israel speeches. Demonstrators chanted Islamic slogans and flags calling for “victory to the intifada” were waved. Leading figures in Britain’s anti-Israel coalition also lined up to attack Israel.

Andrew Birgin, of the Stop the War Coalition, urged the destruction of the State of Israel. “Israel is a racist state! It is an apartheid state! With its Apache helicopters and its F-16 fighter jets! The South African apartheid state never inflicted the sort of repression that Israel is inflicting on the Palestinians,” he said to loud applause. “When there is real democracy, there will be no more Israel!” concluded Birgin. “Allahu Akbar!” yelled several men repeatedly in response.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post, Birgin said he was referring to Israel “in the sense that it exists now,” and said he wanted to see a “democratic secular state in which peace can move forward.”
