Police in Berlin say about 1,000 demonstrators, most of them Palestinian, held an unregistered march protesting Israel’s actions in Gaza.

Up to ten demonstrators were arrested for breach of the peace and for trying to forcibly free others already arrested in Saturday’s melee, a police spokesperson said. Rocks were thrown during the disturbance and a police officer was struck but not injured.

Demonstrations in Berlin require a police permit.

The demonstrators initially tried unsuccessfully to enter the “Fan Mile,” where tens of thousands of soccer fans have been gathering to watch World Cup games on big screens over the past few weeks.

Pushed back by police, the demonstrators – who according to the spokesperson were aggressive and chanting – proceeded up one of Berlin’s main avenues near Potsdamer Platz. Facing a major police response, the demonstrators – at that point led by someone who tried to calm them, the spokesperson said – gradually broke up.

By some estimates, Berlin is home to 35,000 Arabs of Palestinian origin.

On Friday, several hundred pro-Israel demonstrators gathered at Wittenberg Platz in Berlin under the banner “Fight Terror, Support Israel,” organized by the Mideast Freedom Forum Berlin, a non-denominational NGO.

  1. Over the past year I’ve come across many places on the internet that are being spammed with FALSE Palestinian propoganda. Never has it occurred to anyone that Israel’s efforts to promote Israel are not aimed to the right people. A much too big portion of Israel’s hasbara is in Hebrew. These efforts to disseminate abroad positive information about Israel are going down the drain, as they are not penetrating the dark shield of these “shadow lands”. With this group I hope we can SPREAD THE TRUTH WHERE IT IS BEING DENIED. For the good name of Israel, and all of his people, please like the page and help us get the international recognition we deserve! I have seen many Palestinians spam attack Israeli sites and facebook pages with death threats, cursing and false propaganda. I hope that together, with the use of this page, we will be able to do the same, but with one little change: NO LIES, NO CURSING, NO PROPAGANDA.
    שלום על ישראל

  4. Not just Pali’s spamming Jewish sites, it’s all Muslim’s from around the globe that are committing these lies on the internet. They are everywhere, and especially the one’s in America, in colleges, they are the biggest threat to the well being of Jews. They target dumb Christians who are naive, and get them to sympathize by drilling in the notion that the Jews killed Jesus. All we as Jews can do is tell the truth and continue to share information that is positive about Israel. Believe me there is a huge battle in America, and most American’s are anti-semitic, and not supportive of Jews.
