UK: Pro-Palestinian arrested for mixing up "Israel" and "Jews"

Somebody should explain to this poor guy that while calling Israel a 'terrorist state' is a-okay in the UK, taking the next logical step and calling every Jew a terrorist is a horrible crime.

Via Jewish News:
A man was arrested in Hackney on Thursday after distributing leaflets accusing Jews of having “a terror mentality” and Israel of being a “terrorist state”.

The while male, who is believed to be a Muslim, was arrested for possession of racially inflammatory material under Section 23 of the Public Order Act 1986.

Shomrim North-East volunteer Chaim Hochauser, who was present at the time of the arrest, said: “We took some calls after Shabbos about a guy distributing ‘Free Palestine’ leaflets at Seven Sisters station. Then today, we took more calls, saying he was hanging these posters from trees all over Hackney. We reported it to the police and followed him. He boarded a bus, where he was arrested. Police found hundreds more of these leaflets in his bag.”

The volunteer force also alleged that the middle-aged man “hurled anti-Semitic abuse” before being arrested by Hackney Police, and provided the Jewish News with a copy of the leaflets, titled: “Israel: the state of organised terror.”  more
