UK: Unrest as Al-Quds rally draws pro-Israel counter-demo in London

Police had to intervene and briefly apprehend protesters when scuffles broke out between Al-Quds rally-goers and a pro-Israel counter-demo in London on Sunday. Al-Quds Day, which falls on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan, is an annual event first introduced in 1979 by late Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, as a day of protest against Zionism and Israel’s control of... Еще Jerusalem. Despite continued efforts to ban the event on the grounds of anti-Semitism, protesters are expected to assemble outside the buildings of the UK Home Office on Sunday afternoon. The demonstration has courted controversy in the past, with the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan urging the Home Secretary Sajid Javid to close a legal loophole surrounding the raising of Hezbollah flags in the run up to last year’s event.
