Interestingly enough, there are never security issues resulting directly from pro-Israel participants, only from those who hate them with irrational intensity.
NOTE: Reference to ”ultra Jewish vigilantes” is a disgrace, voicing an opinion and defending yourself from those who would deny you that right, does not make you ”ultra” nor a ”vigilante”. What are you going to confront goons with, feathers and wet noodles? These people have had it up to their eyeballs with government officials looking the other way while their communities are being trashed and their people victimized, or worse, murdered, by Islamics.
Outrage as France become first country in world to ban pro-Palestine demos
- Move follows violence at protests in Paris last weekend
- Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said there was a ‘threat to public order’
- Thousands across France were set to march again this weekend
- Anyone who breaks the ban faces a year in prison and a 15,000 euro fine.

France’s Socialist government provoked outrage today by becoming the first in the world to ban protests against Israeli action in Palestine.
In what is viewed as an outrageous attack on democracy, Socialist Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said mass demonstrations planned for the weekend should be halted.
Mr Cazeneuve said there was a ‘threat to public order’, while opponents said he was ‘criminalising’ popular support of the Palestinian people.
Pro-Palestinian demonstrators take to the streets of Paris on Sunday. France’s socialist government has sparked uproar after it banned protests against Israeli action in Palestine
Thousands were set to march against the ongoing slaughter in Gaza, calling for an immediate end to hostilities in which civilians including many children have been killed.
But Mr Cazeneuve fears there might be a repeat of the fights between ‘ultra’ Jewish vigilantes and pro-Palestinians which happened after a demonstration last Sunday.
Referring to the main Paris march, Mr Cazeneuve said: ‘I consider that the conditions are not right to guarantee security.’

He welcomed a legal procedure instigated by the Paris police prefecture to ban the march, despite it already being widely advertised.
Anyone who turns up to an illegal demonstration now faces up to a year in prison, and a 15,000 euro fine.
If they hide their faces to avoid being identified, this sentence can be increased to three years, and a 45,000 fine.
