All in all an uneventful day. This years crowd of moderate Muslims calling for the destruction of Israel was way down from previous years totals.
I estimate 2000 at best compared to 6-8 thousand last year.
I am not sure how to account for the steep decline in numbers.
Maybe everyone was at the Pan-Am Games or maybe with Muslims massacring one another on an industrial scale in Iraq and Syria people have better things to do than chant like drunken banshees in the street.
Al Quds Day has always been a Shia thing but in prior marches there was Sunni support, that hasn’t been much in evidence these last two years.
The Sunni-Shia bloodletting has likely taken care of that.
This year was also the march of the women and children, they outnumbered the men and were as always bused in by the local Mullahs.
The JDL had a good turnout and a Kickass sound system which succeeded in drowning out the Al Quds screed.
I’ll post more pics as the night wears on, I have to sift through my film.
One thing is certain there were more people at the demo than there were attending Panamania at City Hall, so there’s that.
They’re gonna have to get new signs. Sun News????
I’m tryin to figure this out. It’s a T-shirt with a Star of David on it. I get that.
Is she selling it? Is it a scarecrow? I just don’t know.
Signs for kids, gotta teach em to hate while they’re young.
Really a dead kid every 60 hours? Well I guess we’ll have to take them at their word.
The JDL had the best signs by far
Happy Al Quds Day!
And another one…
