Protests against the confliuct are taking place every fortnight in central London

Protests against the conflict are taking place every fortnight in central London

GETTY

The home secretary has told pro-Palestinian demonstrators to stop their regular Gaza protests because they have “made their point” and are putting a “huge pressure” on policing.

James Cleverly said the demonstrations, which are now taking place every fortnight in central London, are “not really saying anything new”.

In an interview with The Times, Cleverly said it was vital that no MP felt “bullied” into changing their stance on the Israel-Gaza war in light of the protests.

“I think the organisers should recognise that they’ve made their point, they’ve made it loudly and they’re not adding to it by repeating themselves,” Cleverly said.

The government will consider changing protest rules to require organisations of a demonstration to give police more than the current six days’ notice, he added, a move the home affairs committee recommended among a range of measures in a report published on Tuesday

Claire's Observations:  Secretary Cleverly, a word, please:  these people have not been heard at all, until the UK alters its policies toward the Israeli genocide of Gaza.  

So instead of looking at the root cause of their anger and unhappiness at the British government's stance toward Israel, you want to tamp down on the demonstrations.

The moment the Israeli government conflated "self defense" with  "genocide", they lost a lot of very intelligent people, who had originally stood with them after the massacres in Israel, which also must be condemned as unconscionable and horrific. 

And of course, let's not forget the recent discoveries of oil and natural gas, just tantalizingly  adjacent to Gaza's shorelines, shall we?!?  The decimation of Gaza's Palestinians, will put Israel in full control of that area, and its potential wealth, as well, if they succeed in their genocidal quest.

So how much further into "V for Vendetta" territory, do you really want to take your country, Secretary Cleverly?!?  Because what the world is seeing, is a full-spectrum slide toward that terrifying style of autocracy, on the part of your government regarding its Israeli policy.
