I was surprised to turn my television on sometime over the weekend to find the BBC actually reporting a pro-Israel demonstration at Trafalgar Square. The corporation even showed live pictures of the assembled demonstrators. Surely one can imagine my surprise!
The Metropolitan Police estimated around 4,000 individuals attended the Trafalgar area to show their support for Israel. Based on the scenes BBC kindly screened, and given my knowledge of the area I'd say that the number was at least 4,000.
It was refreshing to see such a sight and it pleases me to know that there are ordinary people in this country who are actually prepared to show there support for democracy and security.
