Watch: English racist group parades Israeli flag at demonstration

“Birds of a feather flock together,” so the saying goes.

Therefore, we should hardly be surprised at seeing the Israeli flag take pride of place at a demonstration by the English Defence League (EDL), a racist and neo-fascist group, as you can see in the video below.

The demonstration took place in Slough, southeast England, on 1 February 2014.

Readers of this website will recall that last month we reported Israel’s finance minister, Ya’ir Lapid, publicly declaring: “We need to get rid of the Palestinians.”

Speaking in a debate in Tel Aviv on 17 January, he  said, as reported by the Israeli news website Ynet:

We say – peace is not the issue, we need to get rid of the Palestinians. It threatens us, it chokes us. Ultimately the State of Israel cannot continue on while unnaturally absorbing four million Palestinians. Eventually they will tell us, “if you don’t want to give us a country of our own, let us vote”. And then, if we let them vote, it will be the end of the Jewish state. If we won’t let them – it will be the end of a democratic Israel, and I won’t allow that to happen.

How so much he has in common with the racist EDL! Birds of a feather do indeed flock together.
