Anti-Jewish slogans at pro-Palestinian rally in Brussels

Brussels - 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 TrĂ´ne 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.
