Up to 4,500 Protest Anti-Semitism in England
The International Business Times reported that thousands gathered on the streets of London on August 31st to protest what they say are increasing incidents of anti-Semitism in the British Isles, particularly since Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.
The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism (CAAS) issued a statement ahead of the planned protest, saying, "Unless we act now to force the issue, anti-Semites will continue to go unpunished and the nature of British society will change. We must unite to turn the tide."
The protest was attended by a number of public figures as well as by Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim activist and founder of an anti-extremist think tank. Read more.
