Muslim hatred in heart of Europe: More than 1,000 Muslims marched Saturday in Berlin and chanted anti-Israel slogans to mark al-Quds Day, set by Iran following the Islamist revolution in the country.

The protestors in the anti-Israel rally were faced by hundreds of Israel fans who also arrived at the site.

Police in the German capital deployed in force to separate the two camps and prevent violent clashes.

The Islamic march was led by Iranian clerics, accompanied by anti-Zionist Neturei Karta Jews living in Europe.

“What’s taking place in Israel is a Shoah for the Palestinians,” one of the radical ultra-Orthodox Jews, Rabbi Beck, told Ynet. “We are waiting for the day Zionism collapses, and then Jews and Muslims would be able to live side by side in peace.”

While the rabbi spoke, protestors behind him were chanting “Allahu Akbar” and “Israel is a terrorist.”

The Muslim protestors held up banners accusing Israel of committing war crimes, as well as photographs of late Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini. They chanted “Freedom for Palestine” and “End the killing of civilians in Gaza.”

Before reaching the square where a rally was held, protest organizers urged the marchers to refrain from anti-Jewish chants, which are considered a criminal offence in Germany.

One can assume that the march was rife with antisemitic chants, given what we know about these anti-Israel protesters, and reaffirmed by the fact protest organizers had to make this special request of the protesters.

Notice the quote by the Neturei Karta “Rabbi”. He talks about Jews and Muslims living side by side in peace. If this is what the Muslim protesters truly want, why the antisemitic chants?

And why the Hizbullah flag? (see 1:37 in the following Press TV report) 

People are deluding themselves if they think these protesters are marching for the palestinian right to a homeland.

They are marching for the palestinian right to eradicate the Jewish homeland. And us Jews, while they are at it.

Which makes Berlin quite a chilling place for such a march, when you think about it.
