An organizer of a neo-Nazi demonstration targeting the Jewish community of London has said that protesters plan to show solidarity with Palestinians against the State of Israel by desecrating Israeli flags and burning Jewish books.

The anti-Semitic campaign, organized by fascist activist Joshua Bonehill, is targeting British Jews by holding what he calls “anti-Jewification” rallies in Jewish areas across London.

The campaign has been picked up by an alliance of neo-Nazis and other extremist groups, who recently held a similar protest in the predominantly Orthodox Jewish community of Stamford Hills. The anti-Semitic coalition next plans to target the neighbourhood of Golders Green during Shabbat on July 4, the heart of London’s Jewish community.

Though the coalition initially claimed to be opposing the Shomrim group, an unarmed neighborhood watch group that works closely with police, its widely anti-Semitic rhetoric and tone seems to indicate a dislike for Jews beyond the Shomrim.

“Not only will we be demonstrating against the undemocratic and illegal Jewish Shomrim Police on July 4th,” wrote Bonehill on his website, “but also we will be standing in solidarity with those oppressed by the illegal state of Israel.”

To “avoid prosecution” Bonehill plans on having his ‘activists’ rip the flags by hand, as opposed to burning them.

“There will also be a private ceremony held before the demonstration at an undisclosed and private location where copies of the Talmud books will be burnt in recognition of it’s racist Anti-White teachings,” Bonehill continued.

European Nazi groups have recently begun embracing the Palestinian narrative in an effort to bolster their credibility and piggyback off of popular anti-Israel sentiment, which is often used as a front for anti-Semitism.
