PALESTINIAN rights groups have roundly condemned the vile anti-semitic abuse shouted from a convoy of cars in a Jewish area of north London at the weekend.
Four men were arrested on Sunday after a video circulating on social media showed a man with a megaphone spewing abuse from a group of cars covered with Palestinian flags on Finchley Road.
The Palestinian Forum in Britain said: “We strongly condemn these horrible actions which only serve to undermine the struggle for Palestinian rights and simply have no place within the Palestinian movement.
“Many in the Jewish community have stood up against the oppressive policies of the Israeli government and are in the forefront of the struggle against the Israeli occupation and its apartheid regime. We all stand united in the face of all hate crimes.”
The forum was among the organisers of Saturday’s massive London protest in which more than 100,000 people marched in solidarity with the Palestinian people against Israeli aggression.
Another of the organisers, Friends of al-Aqsa, said it “unreservedly condemned any individual in the name of Palestine perpetrating hate crimes.”
Footage of the incident shows passengers shouting “f**k all of them” and “rape their daughters” while stationary at traffic lights in the St John’s Wood area.
The Palestine Solidarity Campaign described the abuse as vile and condemned “all anti-semitism on its own account and also as it serves to undermine the anti-racist struggle for Palestinian rights.”
Police also arrested a man in Nottingham after a car drove into Palestinian rights protesters in the city on Saturday.
One person suffered leg injuries as a result of the incident.
Nottingham Police confirmed that a 51-year-old man was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and of dangerous driving.
