Pro-Israel March Turns Violent In S.Africa As Pro-Palestine Group Attacks (PICS) by TMKsouth: 7:47am On Nov 13, 2023
A pro-Israel protest in Cape Town on Sunday was disrupted by pro-Palestinian protesters. Buses of protesters for Israel were sent away after the police used stun grenades and water cannons to disperse a group of the counter-protesters for Palestine.

When GroundUp arrived, there was a standoff between protesters and police in riot gear. There was a heavy police presence, with city law enforcement and SAPS officers present before either protest started. Four people were arrested and face charges of public violence.

Sunday’s clashes followed a massive but peaceful protest in support of the Palestinian people on Saturday. Tens of thousands of people marched through Cape Town city centre calling for the closure of the Israeli embassy and for the Western Cape province's government to condemn Israel as it did Russia.

On Sunday there were only about a hundred pro-Palestinian protesters. A few dozen pro-Israel supporters, mostly from Christian churches, had arrived but they decided to call off their protest following the clashes.

Reverend Barry Isaacs, a convener of the protest for Israel, said the police were there because of the city, not at their request.

Abeedah Adams, a member of the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign (PSC), said that unlike other marches for Palestine, the counter-protest had no link to any official organisation.

"It was more spontaneous: people responding to the posters and the media about the pro-Israeli protest.

"I think there's a very strong sentiment that we can't allow that kind of Zionism. It's not welcome in the City of Cape Town," she said.


Both sides inflamed the situation on Sunday.

GroundUp saw one of the pro-Palestinian protesters grab an Israeli flag from a pro-Israel supporter. Pro-Israel protesters also attempted to antagonise the pro-Palestinian protesters. Much shouting ensued and there were some clashes. Police used stun grenades to attempt to disperse the group involved in the scuffle.

A section of the pro-Palestinian crowd shouted down leaders' calls to step back. Protesters also shouted at the police, comparing them to the apartheid-era police force.

Police had to intervene when a small group of pro-Palestine protesters tried to harass a protester for Israel who was in a wheelchair. Pepper spray was also used at one point.

It is better to have a Jewish neighbor than an Islamic neighbor, Muslims are natural violent, I don't just know why, even ordinary Yoruba Muslims are becoming like that too

Omo, in the coming years South Africa is going to be in a world of hurt. Never knew there were so many Arabs living there. Arabs that have no iota of respect for black people. See the way they are kicking their black police officers. Chai.

Israelis cant be left to protest in peace - they're an apartheid occupying force. Palestinians have every right to be angry.

Any group that supports terrorist groups Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, Houthi Rebels, TSN, Al-Qaeda are always violent like the group they support. Since they've been marching peacefully without harassment from those who supports Israel, now that those who supports Israel have started their own peaceful march in support of Israel and Antisemitism, supporters of Hamas and Co are attacking them.

Thank God for France, a great march for Israel and antisemitism is going on now in France and other countries against terrorists.

South Africans are yet to experience real APARTHEID.

Its just a matter of time they Will learn the hard way...........................................................FACT.

If all these terrorist sympathizers love Palestine so much they should go and join them in their terror attack on Isreal.

Look at how they were violently attacking Police officers that came to make peace.
Indeed their religion is a religion of peace, it shows in the way and manner they act.

Islam is indeed peaceful

SA has lived peacefully with muslims since time immemorial and joined us in our fight against apartheid - while Israel supported the Boers. So we know very well who our enemy is.
