New Zealand, home to fewer than 5,000 Jews, has become the latest target of non-anti-Semitic protests against Israel’s “genocide” in Gaza.

Hundreds of protesters crowded Auckland’s downtown business district for a “Free Palestine” march this week, according to a report by the Whale Oil blog.

Although the protest, sponsored by the socialist Mana Party, lacked the violence and looting of recent non-anti-Semitic protests in Paris, the march did feature standard pro-Palestinian fare, including an Israeli flag with a swastika instead of a Star of David, as well as speeches by non-anti-Semitic public figures who simply don’t seem to like Jews.

Choice quotes form the speeches include:

Every three days a Palestinian child is murdered by the Israeli regime. (John Minto, head of the Mana Party).

What we must celebrate the heroic resistance of the Palestinian people.(John Minto)

We must do more to make sure we are part of the international movement to bring down Israel and the global Zionist — [obscured by cheering] (Robert Reid, General Secretary, First Union)

  14. How many Hamas members are in New Zealnd? How long would they last before being booted out?

  15. Kim Sloan says:

    Stephen you are an i d i o t!

  16. Judy Murray says:

    Why does being pro Palestinian mean you have to be anti Israel? I support Israel but I support the Palestinians in Gaza as well. It is Hamas who is the enemy here, holding the people of Gaza to ransom, forcing them to be human shields and hiding weapons in schools and hospitals. Israel is trying to free the people of Gaza from the terror of Hamas.

    All you are against Israel will end up suffering the wrath of G0d! It’s in the bible! For all of you anti semitic dick heads, just know that your micro chips, Facebook, and all other things you use were invented and made by Jews! Yippee! so enjoy!

  20. Loren Renee says:

    I think we indeed need to adopt the word ‘judeophobic’

  21. You people are so stupid. You prefer Arab terrorist to destroy your country and way of living? Jews are peaceful people.

  22. Fkers so join ISis

  23. We Americans just ignore them. God Bless Israel and her IDF.

  24. Tony Ramon says:

    watching this on TV although it was laughable It was the typical rent a protest crowd that was running these protests. As a New Zealander I can assure you that a vast majority of New Zealanders are pro Israel.

  25. The world has gone mad …..

  26. Hamas not killing children?? You are asleep wake up

  27. HOW TO SPEAK TO MUSLIMS : MORDECHAI KEDARF

  28. Scott Soffen says:

    New Zealand must have gotten tired f ing the sheep.

  29. They never claim to really be “anti Israel”. Remember. They hide behind big words like “Apartheid ” and “genocide”” We don’t hate Jews or Israel” They say. We just want them to give back all their land and give up all their power to the PLO for world peace.. How crazy is that? for they can never see themselves as being hatful . They can’t believe they are capable of anti Semitism or they could never be anti Israel and justify it. They really believe that being “anti Israel” or “anti Zionist” is a just cause for human rights. They delude themselves into this belief to a far left degree.

  30. The Bible says God will bless the world through Israel. Indeed we have. Guatemala is praying for Israel!!!

  31. Rachel Topaz says:

    Wow even New Zealand let the terrorists in, where will you all go when they take over your beautiful country? Are you going to let them burn your country to the ground like they’re doing in Europe?? Good luck NZ.

  32. Rachel Topaz says:

    Because they’re not really pro palestinian or pro gaza, they couldn’t give a **** about their own people, they simply hate Jews, that’s all. Their hatred for Jews is far greater than their love for their own women and children.

  34. Judy Murray says:

    Sadly Rachel, they are homegrown mostly. Ultra left wing, communists mostly posing as greenie “human rights”. The same hypocrites boycott Israeli tennis players under the guise of “human rights” but not the Chinese? Go figure. They are not pro human rights they are just anti Israel and anti semetic.

  35. Judy Murray says:

    Innocent people don’t use hospitals, schools and holy places to store or launch weapons that kill people and are aimed at innocent civilians. They also don’t build tunnels with the aim of kidnapping and ransoming innocent civilians either. I could go on…

  36. Judy Murray says:

    I’d like to think so Tony but watching the news, reading the paper and listening to the radio you wouldn’t think so. The reporting is so one-sided it’s sickening. These people are very intimidating and wouldn’t put it past them to turn violent.

  37. Tony Ramon says:

    And I like many New Zealanders will not be intimidated by these rabble rousers. as they have nothing better to do.

  38. Kris Hand … what did you say???
