A measly crowd in London of 100 anti-Israeli rioters, most of them of Asian descent, protested outside a Tesco store that sells Israeli products while others barged inside and attacked nearly two dozen police officers Saturday.
“A group of Asian men holding Palestinian flags came walking in and starting to push products over and getting aggressive with staff and shoppers. Police officers tried to stop them but I ran out,” one shopper told the London Telegraph.
Only one person was arrested for assaulting a police officer.
The Birmingham, England’s store’s sin that drew the protest was its selling Israeli products. Rioters grabbed merchandise off the shelves and smashed them on the floor and yelled at shoppers and workers, many of who fled in fear.

A police statement described the protest outside the store as ”peaceful” but added that some protesters “began throwing stock inside Tesco store [and] two [were] escorted from [the] premises.” One person inside the store told the Daily Mail that the rioters “wreaked havoc.”
Tesco customers were not impressed by the riot and went on social media to castigate the behavior as Idiotic” and “disgusting,” among other adjectives.
“Peace protest? I think not. Disgusting!” one tweet stated. Another tweeter with the Arabic-sounding name, of Wagar Ahmed, wrote, “This isn’t helping the Palestinian cause. In fact, it’s doing the opposite.” Mehr Ali tweeted, “How is this going to help Gaza. Idiots.”
More to the point, how is this going to help Britain, where Islamic law already has been recognized in several areas.
Pro-Hamas Member of Parliament earlier this month called on a city to ban from the city anything and anyone connected with Israel.
British expatriates who have returned to their native country for a visit in the last several years have reported they are in shock of what is a rapidly growing de facto fanatic Muslim revolution.

Saturday’s protest ostensibly was against a store selling Israeli products but in a larger context was another riot against Western culture.
