London’s Metropolitan police force stepped in recently to protect Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman from a hail of soft North London bagels courtesy of those opposed to his neo-Fascist views.
In a residential building, a stroll away from the Freud Museum, Lieberman was thanking the finest supporters of JNF for their unrelenting and unquestioning support of Israel come what, and whoever, may. Not seeing the irony in their tete-a-tete with Avigdor taking place near a place of refuge for someone offered sanctuary against organised racism, donors offered their own version of fascist collaboration – something Lieberman is well-acquainted with.
The protest was moved 4 yards down the road, on the understanding that these “projectiles” had failed the intensive 5-second health and safety assessment of this protest carried out by the police team. Forcibly moving the group down the road, and tying police cordon tape to the expensive donors’ cars across the street to pen them in, Avigdor was safe from the threat of a tasty bagel for his tea.
And meanwhile he continued to talk inside, safe too from being prosecuted for his opinions which dwarf those of the BNP in their intolerance and hatred. Those who peacefully question whether we want a man like this to be courted on our shores by Jewish charity leaders are accused of posing a safety threat. We throw bagels, he throws bigotry.
