Rally For Israel In Kensington

I went to the rally in support of Israel outside the Israeli Embassy in Kensington this afternoon. I reckon between 3,000 and 4,000 attended, mainly British Jews but also a lot of Israelis, Christian Friends of Israel, and some Spaniards, Brazilians and Irish. There was a massive police presence, but it was all good-humoured, with songs and level-headed, encouraging speeches from Vivian Wineman and Louise Ellman, MP amongst others. The most notable part was that all the chants and placards were positive. As you can see, they supported Israel and condemned Hamas with wry humour, but did not call for harm to come to Muslims, Arabs or the Palestinian people. The best part was the mighty rolling thunder of Jews on Bikes!
