London - Marchers in the annual Al-Quds Day parade in London blamed a fire in a low-income apartment complex that left at least 58 dead on “Zionists.”

Hundreds marched Sunday afternoon behind the Palestinian flag and behind a flag of Hezbollah, which has been named in Britain as an illegal terror organization. Many marchers also carried paper versions of the Hezbollah flag. No effort was made by London police to stop them, the Jewish Chronicle reported.

“This demonstration calls on justice for Grenfell. Some of the biggest supporters of the Conservative Party are Zionists. They are responsible for the murder of the people in Grenfell. The Zionist supporters of the Tory Party. Free, Free, Palestine!” one man shouted into a microphone during the march, according to the Chronicle.

Other chants included: “Zionists/ISIS are the same. Only difference is the name.”

Supporters on the parade route held up banners reading : “Zionism is Racism” and “We are all Hezbollah.”

Al-Quds is he Muslim name for Jerusalem. The annual march is a call for the destruction of Israel.

Hundreds carrying Israeli flags attended a counter demonstration, and some marched along the parade route.

More than 15,000 people had petitioned London Mayor Sadiq Khan to stop the march from taking place.

Oh come on.
This is absurd. And blatantly disrespectful to the people that died in the fire and their families.
Somebody is responsible for the fire and/or the inadequate response to it. By their ridiculous logic gymnastics of blaming "zionists" for everything, they are implying that the responsible party is not responsible.
And since many non-jewish people equate "zionist" with Jew - they are endangering themselves, their families and all Jews in London and Worldwide.
Do these fools feel pride for saying something anti- Israeli, without a seconds thought of the damage they may cause. Jews could get killed because of their vote loshon horah. This is just horrible.

The mayor himself marched in it when he was younger. This is a fact.

Thats right, WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER,
You'd wish to have him as a mayor (if you're from Brooklyn that is)

Wishing we had someone else as a mayor doesn't necessarily mean we wish this geniuses the mayor. Deep concept but think about it.
