Yesterday the pro Palestine demonstration in London led a lot of the news bulletins. Around 20,000 took part. Ironically for a demonstration that was supposedly pressing for peace, it degenerated into violence, with several shops being attacked. Quite what threat those shops posed to the idiots who broke their windows is unclear.
Today, there was a pro Israel demonstration, attended by 15,000 people according to the organisers. It was completely peaceful. So far, I haven't seen a mention of it on any news bulletins, although there is a report on the BBC News Website. [UPDATE: Stephen Glenn has seen it on both 24 hour news channels and C4 News]
Click HERE for a full report from the left wing Harry's Place blog. Rob Halfon (who works for CFI) put the number of people present much higher at 35,000 and makes the point that those attending were a mixture of Jews, Christians, Hindhus from many different nationalities. Needless to say, radical Islamists tried to disrupt the event but they failed miserably.
I wish I had been able to go. It sounds as if it was a great event, supporting a noble cause - peace in Israel AND Palestine.
