More than 100 march in Southampton against violence in Gaza

First published in News
Last updated

MORE than 100 people marched through Southampton today to protest against the violence in Gaza.

The peace march was organised by the Muslim Council of Southampton but was joined by various other community groups as they gathered by the city's peace fountain on Southampton Common.

And passers by stopped to look as they walked along city streets shouting "Free Palestine" before stopping outside the BBC building to protest against its coverage of the crisis.

Mohammeed Khan Jee, secretary of the Muslim council, said the protest was not aimed at criticising people but urging the British government to act and save lives in Gaza.

He said: "Children have been slaughtered and women killed. They have no electricity or any of e things we take for granted.

"We are not asking anyone to attack Israel, all we are asking for is the government to help the people of Gaza and Palestine so we can find some sort of solution."

Police liaison officers were also on the scene to ensure the safety of the protestors.

If there were oil fields in Gaza, especially owned by Western oil giants as in Khurd region of Iraq, Obama, Cameron and others of their ilk would have protected Gaza. But unfortunately poor Palistinian people have nothing, whatever little they had was grabbed by the Zionist dominated Israel with the blessings of United Nations.

Stop firing rockets. In the west Israel gains more sympathy with every rocket fired by the Palestinians. That may not seem just but non violence is the only way to achieve peace.

So they elect a terrorist organization as their government, who then proceed to fire rockets at Israel with the intention wiping Israel off the map, Israel retaliates by breaking lots of things in Gaza and now they want us to pay for it to be fixed, AGAIN!
Non of the other muslim states want to know so why should we pay for it?

Why are they not protesting about ISIS and the Internet video of a Western journalist being beheaded ! Why are they not protesting at the rape of under age girls, and the lack of education, and the execution on non Muslims!!!!!!!!!!!!!
! I rest my case , fair play to Israel and if you want to protest about Palestine then tell the terrorist organisation running Gazza to stop firing rockets into Israel, and then just then you might be able to sit down like civilized adults and come to a solution!

There aren't any oilfields in Israel. The country has a highly successful industrial and technical based economy despite few natural resources. When the oil runs out, what will happen to the rich Islamic states then?

I think we should all look at some of these march organisers and their extremist beliefs. One in particular this week shared a Facebook video suggesting that the american journalist wasnt beheaded and it was nothing more than a hoax to increase US attacks in Iraq ! This wrongun also shares another video saying that 9 11 attacks on the WTC was done by Israelis.

These free palestine idiots clearly have a total religious hatred of Jews.

Very true. Hamas fires rockets from densely populated civilian areas. Even Indian TV station NDTV, which was sympathetic with Gaza ended up showing rockets being fired from are next to their crew's hotel. And a leader of Hamas has now bragged that they killed 3 Isreali youngsters, which started the latest conflict.

Sadly in this mess not only people of Israel but ordinary Palistinian people also suffer. They should be co-existing and living in peace.

Most of the problems are caused neither by ordinary Israeli folks not their equal numbers in Gaza and West Bank areas. But by likes of Hamas and Zionist elements on the other side.

But sadly on this website, many supposedly well informed contributors deliberately tend to blur the boundaries between Hamas and the rest of the ordinary people or tarnish every Israeli as Zionist. But what about the poor innocent children being killed on both sides?

Organisations like Hamas ans ISIS do not represent most Muslims, in fact vast majority of Muslims view them as threat to their communities. But who provides them financial support and all the arms?..... Mostly super rich well placed people in various Middle East nations who also badly treat and exploit their own people...... And who sells them arms which get handed over to likes of Hamas?..... Armsmanufactures including British sell all the weapons with the help of our other similar governments.

Just what good are they doing "marching" through Southampton. Gaxa, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine all seem to be permanently on TV. We do not need reminding of any of them. Visiting your MP, emailing your MP, writing to your MP may or may not do more - at least he'll have something to read on his hols. A few people marching in our little City is not going to do anything to raise interest or promote the cause nationally.

Besides which if they don't like presumably innocent people being killed why aren't they protesting about Iraq as well?

There are no easy answers just violent thugs on all sides of the political and religious divide all over our world. If we protest who do we protest against or to, if we join in we become the violent thug, if we turn the other cheek we are just as culpable. No easy answers.

'What will they do when the oil runs out?' Hence buying up much of UK Plc and other assets. As for why are they not protesting against? Folk have differing views that affect them or their thinking. When you have to deal with terrorists on both sides of a divide in another 'trouble' and you hear 'this is a problem of 800 years and talk of Cromwell the 'murderer'. To most of us that is a history lesson too far. Perceived injustices are indeed part of world history and the 'lessons' of the past are drummed into each generation with recent 'injustices' given as proof of the past We can stand aloof and say what on earth are they talking about - however, it is real to them. Soldiers often wonder why we can find vast sums of money to destroy and then to rebuild when the money could have been used in the first place to assist in joining the world of trade and commerce.

No what they do is destablise a country that will not play ball, Like in the Ukraine between the USA and UK government contractors Blackwater and G4 there is over 400 merc's fighting with the Fascist Army.

There aren't any oilfields in Israel. The country has a highly successful industrial and technical based economy despite few natural resources. When the oil runs out, what will happen to the rich Islamic states then?
Try reading what Paramjit as posted, he did say "If"
You miss the point Southy. Israel has no oil yet is rich through the hard work of its citizens. If the Palestinians had put as much energy into their economy as they put into hating Jews they would be richer and safer.

Reading these comments is so frustrating.
Going by the negative feedback on the comments that make sense, it seems to me that a lot of people don't realise what is actually going on.
What Paramjit said is very true.
People only look at what is happening NOW and not what has lead up to this point.
Israel is an illegal occupier in the majority of the land in what IS Palestine.
The people of Gaza are being oppressed.
This is not by the Orthodox Jews, but being driven by the Zionist regime.
Many Orthodox Jews are against the Zionist movement.
The Palestinians have a right to resist occupation.
When Gaza resists what is being put on them, and Israel 'defends' itself, it makes my laugh.
Can the oppressor defend itself from the oppressed - the answer is NO - they should stop oppressing.
If and when there is a ceasefire, the Palestinians are still being targeted by the IDF, as in the case of Gaza, they have been for a very long time.
The west side of Gaza is open water which is patrolled by the Israeli Navy, there is normally a 6 mile exclusion zone, which recently has been reduced to 3 miles. Even when fishermen are not breaching the exclusion limit, they still risk being injured or killed by the Navy.
This is the same with people who venture near the 'border' of Gaza / Israel.
I've been following this since operation Castlead (2008/2009), this sort of thing happens too routinely, weekly if not at times daily, our media never reports on it, but the minute an Israeli gets injured or killed it is headline news.
One commenter mentioned about the Israelis being hard workers and if the Palestinians did the same.
I notice that produce is being sold around the world including the UK that was grown on Palestinian land which was stolen by Israeli settlers - but that is okay is it.
Well, as you should know, Gaza has a restriction on all products entering the area. They are in effect in a prison. They have restrictions on building supplies, food and medical supplies to name but three in normal times. During this war things have got worse, people are dieing from the lack of medical equipment / medicines.
If you haven't heard of the BDS movement against Israel, then you should have.
BDS = Boycotts Divestment Sanctions.
There is a massive public outcry against the actions of Israel worldwide, hence the BDS movement. Although you will not read about this in our media, it is big news around the world. Many companies are bowing down to public pressure.
If there were no restrictions there would be no need for the tunnels.
Contrary to our media, the tunnels primary use is to 'smuggle' into Gaza much needed supplies.
If there were no product restrictions there would be no need for tunnels.
Also, the last time I checked, it was a war crime if you targeted a civilian populated area, you cannot compare Hamas to the IDF.
There are many ways to support the Palestinians, one such charity is MAP (Medical Aid for Palestinians).

No what they do is destablise a country that will not play ball, Like in the Ukraine between the USA and UK government contractors Blackwater and G4 there is over 400 merc's fighting with the Fascist Army.

With open country available in Gaza, Hamas continue to cynically locate their rocket sites within heavily populated areas knowing that the response will kill their own people. You list the shortages within Gaza but one thing that never runs out is the constant supply of rocket building material which clearly can only come through the tunnels which would be better used for humanitarian supplies. Hamas don't care about the Gaza population or they would take steps to ease the suffering by either moving the launch sites or using the tunnels for humane purposes but they are on a mission to obliterate Israel with no regard for whose lives are paying the bill. As for you assertions about 'stolen' land, if the Arab uprising hadn't occurred after the UN declaration in 1948, Israel wouldn't have been handed the land on a plate as the borders changed following a war in the same way that they do in conflicts worldwide, and is currently happening in Ukraine. I feel sorry for the Palestinians but mostly because people won't let them make any sort of peace with their neighbour and Hamas supported by the 'useful idiots' demonstrating while safely distant from the problem are just as much to blame.

My late father a pre wartime regular - a true cynic - suggested that we had the same god on our side as did the enemy. Later in his life he suggested that at least now we have different gods fighting each other. 'Nearer to god they got the more barbaric they appeared to be'. - His words!
That is why people should not be believing in unscientific fictional myths like God or his/her dealers in the shape of various religions, which are often exploited by unsavoury people and create conflicts.

Once again Mr Bahia puts his anti Jewish head on, but of course he has given up his Muslim faith, so we must believe him and then along comes Mr Thesechrttruth, fact Palestine was created by us Brits, Israel was given to the Jews by God. the same God we Christian's and Muslims believe in, they were push out and victimised by Christians and Muslims alike, killed in there millions by us civilised Christians and Muslims, Israel was given its on state in their own country, the Arabs refused to recognise the UN Charter, and attack Israel they attacked Israel 2 more times, the Israeli's are fighting annulation, they have every right to defend themselves, as an ex serviceman, I can tell you there is no such thing as over reacting in war, make no mistake this is a war. The Israelis had agreed that in return for giving Gaza to the Palestinians it was to be demilitarised, it was agreed by both parties, Hamas has broken that agreement repeatedly, for years since their existence, they have fired missile into Israel not caring who they kill. A point which really gets on my nerves, is this arms rubbish, trotted out every time, is we supplied these weapons to Arab country's so where to blame, The biggest supplier of arms to these country's is Russia and China, fact, tanks t54-55,t62,t80, which you saw in Iraq, Libya, Syria, APC Russian, aircraft, self propelled guns, mortars, rocket launchers, helicopters, scud missile, anti aircraft guns, anti aircraft missiles, RPG, rifles, Machine guns and Helicopters all Russian and Chinese, nearly every weapon that has been used in all these conflicts are Russian and Chinese " as any well trained serviceman in the Uk will tell you" but you won't say that because Russia and China don't give a dam what you think,
I wonder what substance have you may have consumed for hallucinating that I was ever follower of Muslim faith or ever hated Jews??????

Fact: I do not believe in any religion, but have always respected others right to follow any fictional mumbo jumbo of their own choice provided they don't try to force it on others like me and keep the consumtion of intoxicating stuff within the confines of their places of worship.

All the religious people should be making sure that the brand name of their religions can't be manipulated by evil elements for creating conflict or even wars.

Geogerm, I leave habit of lying to likes of you, who may enjoy making up false stories. Because I never wrote any such thing. I suggest for the sake of your own credibility I suggest you recheck where you imagine you may have read it and correct yourself.

I have the feeling that you may have confused yourself with a comment on this website few days ago without reading it properly.

Fact: Few days ago some other person wrote that he'd left his religion (Islam) against the wishes of his family with whom he has nothing to do anymore. Because I replied to him hoping he won't be falling out of one religious frying pan into another fire (or words to that effect) that person wrote back asking if I am a Muslim. You will find that I'd replied to him saying I DO NOT follow any religious faith and am not neither any of my family or relatives are Muslims, but have many close friends who are Muslims.

So please read it again and stop making a fool out of yourself or copy cut and paste with link to that comment to prove that you are not a LIAR.

You need not apologise for insulting me by suggesting that I belong to the Islamic battalion of God Brigade, because I think you may have made a genuine mistake, which we all can do sometimes.

"That is why people should not be believing in unscientific fictional myths like God or his/her dealers in the shape of various religions, which are often exploited by unsavoury people and create conflicts."
I think you'll find that it's a rather average scientist e.g. Dawkins , who would exclude the possibility of a god , or many.
We've deviated from the subject a long way. Hamas is, of course, a terrorist group, but it uses a cloak of pseudo-religion. I think it would say that all the poor people upon whom it draws down fire by its moronic behaviour will make it to some Euro Disney heaven. I suspect those people would rather have a life than take a gamble on something when they're dead. I just wish they'd kill the pathetic adolescents firing their stupid rockets.
