AÂ factional Pali feudÂ in Sydney:
A tiny yellow flag took Sydney’s pro-Palestinian protest to the brink of a street brawl yesterday.
Just as the protest organisers urged the city’s Palestinian community to unite against injustice,Â someone waved a Hezbollah flagÂ …
NO FRIES WITH THAT!
A melee ensued, with protesters indignant that a flag celebrating the banned terrorist group would cause disharmony. Police rushed the stage to break up the scuffle as organisers urged for calm.
“How dare they show that fascist flag. We should only have Palestinian flags waving,” one protester declared.
There was also hamburger trouble:
As well as taking aim at foes Israel and the US, the protesters were urged to boycott McDonald’s for its supposed links to funding Israel â€” anti-Semitic and anti-sundae.
At least they’ve moved on fromÂ Max Brenner stores. Which, incidentally, are fantastic.
