London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan has been slammed by members of the capital’s Jewish community over his refusal to ban Sunday’s anti-Israel al-Quds Day march and its traditional display of flags supporting the Hezbollah terrorist organization.
“Hezbollah is a proscribed terrorist organisation. It makes NO distinction between its armed and political wing, yet its supporters will be allowed to march through London’s streets unhindered,” [Raphi Bloom, chairman of North West Friends of Israel group] said. “This is extremely disappointing and challenges the mayor’s commitment to rid the streets of London of extremism.
“For many years this march has been rife with anti-Semitism and the fulsome support of a terrorist organisation – Hezbollah. I am sure I do not need to remind anyone that Hezbollah is currently massacring Syrian civilians on behalf of President Assad and is funded by Iran – one of the major supporters of global terrorism in the world today.

Hezbollah holds marches in London, and the city’s Muslim mayor is ok with that. Who would have believed that thirty years ago? What progress! Cannot wait to see what the next thirty years will bring!
Where can the Jews run to now? In thirty years?
