Just yesterday, a number of anti-Israel sites and people shared photo and video of BDS-holes protesting against the Elbit Ferranti factory in Kent, UK.

SEVEN people will attend court tomorrow in Kent for occupying an Israeli-owned arms factory.
The activists face a maximum sentence of three months in prison if convicted at Folkestone magistrates’ court of aggravated trespass.
They were arrested in August at the Instro Precision arms factory in Sandwich, Kent.
Its parent company Elbit Systems supplies military equipment to Israel and claims its products are the “backbone” of Israel’s drone fleet, which has been used extensively in attacks on Gaza.
The activists are expected to plead not guilty at tomorrow’s hearing and a full trial may not take place until next year.
Stop the occupation!
Israel haters are referring to these nincompoops as the “Elbit Instro 7”, but I prefer them by the more accurate “antisemitic assclowns.”
Speaking of which, I am sure prison shower time will involve plenty of ass-clowning around. But on a positive note, at least they will (finally) be showering.
Meanwhile, in related news
A Jewish protester was among a trio of activists who glued themselves to a building used by a “murderous” coal company convicted of criminal damage.
Shulamit Morris-Evans, 23, Angela Ditchfield 41, and Amy Pritchard, 34, superglued their hands to entry gates in an office building being temporarily used by Global Coal Management (GCM).
Appearing at City of London Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, they argued that they protested in a proportionate way against the company due to GCM’s plan to build a coal mine in Bangladesh which could displace hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people as well as adding to pollution.
Morris-Evans, who is a member of Extinction Rebellion, told the court the protest was not reckless as they only aimed to disrupt the meeting of GCM shareholders and did not think it would cause damage to the turnstiles.
Shulamit Morris-Evans is the sister of “Kaddish for Hamas” participant Nina Morris-Evans. It seems that family has a type.
