1. They did that

In protest at the Opera House being lit up in blue and white in support of Israel.

Condemned unequivocally by both sides of politics. Police are examining the footage to identify protestors.

Sydney has a very large Lebanese population.

That entire crowd would be in prison if they did that in Germany.

The police are looking at the footage.

Unlike the US, hate speech is punishable here.

Seriously, there's no excuse for "gas the Jews" anywhere, ever.

It appears that you have extrapolated support for the mob. Did I say they were less vile? Did I?

Where did I mention 'you' or in any way imply you said or did anything beyond your imagination?

Your words

They did that in protest at the Opera House being lit up in blue and white in support of Israel.

Condemned unequivocally by both sides of politics. Police are examining the footage to identify protestors.

My reaction was to your qualification that Sydney has a "very large Lebanese population"

Reread the exchange before you reply.

Auschwitz survivor whose parents and 7 siblings were killed, now age 91, reflects on his life

"more than 400,000 Jewish men, women and children in just 56 days"

And recently, Trump's Nazis marching in Charlottesville yelling about the ovens ready for the Jews again.

Regardless of Hamas…

(I know the difference so please don’t come at me)

Shit like this, happening globally isn’t helping innocent Palestinians trapped in Gaza at all

It's about hatred of Jews.

One cannot call for gassing Jews in Australia, or the US, or Europe, and pretend your issue is with Israel. It's just a blatant lie.

If they wanted to be decent they could say "Free Palestine" or "Give Palestine a State". Instead they drum up the Holocaust. This is nothing but hate.

The Sydney mob may very well have been Palestinian ex-pats. I'm not sure how many we have in that community here.

Breaking here is news that synagogues and Jewish schools are increasing security. It's tragic that there is a need to do this as middle East relationships here are generally quite peaceful.

If I was Israeli, or Jewish, I would probably pull the lever myself to launch 1000 cruise missiles into Gaza without a second thought. These people are absolutely revolting, worse than the damn Russians even.

Parading around dead women from a music festival with the crowd chanting and spitting on them. Absolutely subhuman behavior. It was literally a peace festival and they did that. Hope they enjoy getting bombed back to the stone age, nobody is gonna help them.
