Antisemitic rally in front of Munich synagogue calls for Israel’s eradication

Nearly 4,000 anti-Israel protestors turned up in front of the main Munich synagogue demanding the obliteration of the Jewish state, according to German media reports.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung paper reported one speaker at the anti-Israel protest rejected Israel’s existence, saying, “we do not recognize the right to exist if it means displacement and oppression. We only recognize the rights of the oppressed.” Israel was termed a “terrorist state” and a “Zionist regime” at the rally.

There has been scarce resistance to rising antisemitism in the southern German city of Munich in the state of Bavaria.
