Anti-Israeli protests have been growing in number and size following the Israel-Hamas war, with violent incidents occurring in London and New York.

The London Metropolitan Police has taken a harder line against hateful messaging at protests supporting Palestinians, distributing warning leaflets.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators clashed with police in New York, and the protests have revealed the ugly side of anti-Semitism worldwide. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

The Metropolitan Police posted, “When officers tried to leave the area their vehicle was surrounded by other protesters. Some sat in the road blocking their path.”

“Additional officers were deployed and the arrested man is now on his way to custody,” they added.

According to the U.K. Telegraph, police made arrests, “on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offense”.

Additional officers were brought in to assist. However, as the van proceeded, protesters again obstructed its path. A teenager was arrested for committing criminal damage to the vehicle, the Telegraph reported, and a number of demonstrators had to be moved out of its path.

London’s Metropolitan Police has previously warned against distributing or carrying literature with, “words or images that are racist or incite hatred against any faith,” signage that “support Hamas or any other banned organisation,” or “that celebrate or promote acts of terrorism – such as the killing or kidnap of innocent people.”

“Eventually, the barricades and cops could not contain the crowd. People broke through and began marching through the streets while officers continued to make one arrest after another,” according to CBS.

The situation is escalating, posing a significant challenge to authorities.
