At Londons Marble Arch, around 1000 Al Quds marchers including religious scholars, clerics and Rabbis gather together to hold the annual Al Quds march and rally to present themselves alongside those oppressed around the world including those struggling with the ongoing Israeli blockade of Gaza, now known as Al Quds day.
They march from Marble Arch through London ending at Pall Mall where they listen to speakers outlining the current situation in Gaza, the divisive influence of ionism in Israel and a new emergent actor in the form of so called British fascists.
Earlier, the Al Quds marchers encounter a small group of white male counter protesters holding English flags decorated with a single red rose. The so called fascists are part of a group calling themselves the English Defence League (EDL) and are part of a wider emerging tactic, recently qualified by the Communites Secretary John Denham, which is designed to decamp the domestic population from their natural Anti-War sentiments over the continued occupation of Afghanistan.
The tactic is part of a wider strategy being played out in the United States and is defined as primarily existential in nature. However, the presentation misfires immediately signalling that Britains involvement in the War on Terror has now formally entered the pre-amble to general strategic failure.
