Gaza backlash to hit UK

One cop was hurt and nine men were arrested in Wednesday night’s clashes between pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli factions in Kensington. Police were preparing for more angry scenes today.

Yesterday, 14 British Muslim advisers warned Gordon Brown that anger in their UK communities had reached “acute levels of intensity”.

They said Israel’s attacks on Gaza had “revived extremist groups and empowered their message of violence”. In a letter to the PM, they called for pressure to be put on the US to change its approach to the crisis.

Maajid Nawaz, of counter-extremism think-tank the Quilliam Foundation, said moderate groups needed to be able to explain the Government’s stance to British Muslims. This would help them counter the view put by hate-mongers that it was not doing enough or did not care about Palestinian deaths.

Meanwhile, Jewish communities in Britain have reported a significant rise in anti-Semitic attacks since Israel launched its offensive on December 27.

These people are out of control.
