A march of German neo-Nazis is not a good thing to happen, although at least a large procession of protestors disrupted the fascists.
In a surprising detail, the anti-fascist protesters waved US, UK and Israeli flags. Gene at Harry’s Place appears, somewhat spuriously, to equate this with Iraq and the War on Terror.
It seem rather more likely that the protesters were celebrating the US/UK defeat of Naziism and carrying the Star of David flag to symbolise the Jews who suffered at the fascists’ hands… although hell, maybe they *were* all hardcore Blairites and Zionists.
Memo to the confused: the fascist march is a nasty example of antisemitism. A mayor abusing an extremist newspaper is not.
