Anti-Jewish slogans were heard Sunday during a pro-Palestinian demonstration in Brussels, a video shared on twitter showed.
Around 500 people, some waving Palestinian flags, who rallied around Place du Trône to denounce plans to apply Israeli sovereignty to parts of the West Bank, called for a boycott of Israel and the implementation of international sanctions against the country.
But a video shared on Twitter shows protesters shouting anti-Jewish slogans in Arabic and calling for the murder of Jews.
The video led to angry reactions from readers. ‘’Scandalous; It is an incitement to hatred.’’ ‘’It is incredible that this is allowed to be screamed in total impunity in the capital of Europe.’’ ‘’Under the pretext of anti-Zionism, they hate the Jews and call for their extermination.’’ .’’Is Belgium still a country or a caliphate?.’’
Flags of Intal, a ”solidarity organisation denouncing the occupation of Palestine” and that openly supports the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Disinvestment, Sanctions) movement, were also displayed.
Belgium’s House of Representatives last week adopted a resolution calling on the government to prepare ”counter-measures” against the Israeli annexation plan.
