UK: Al-Quds Day speaker blames Grenfell Tower fire on 'Zionists' (London)

Via The Jewish Chronicle:

Organisers of the annual Al-Quds Day parade in central London have sparked fury after attempting to blame the Grenfell Tower tragedy on "Zionists". 
Around 1,000 people joined the anti-Israel march - with numerous men, women and children openly waving the flag of proscribed terrorist organisation Hezbollah in full view of dozens of Metropolitan Police officers on duty for the event. 
But the march - a pro-Palestinian event first started in Iran in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeni and calling for Israel's demise - left many onlookers in London's Regent Street stunned when a link was made to last week's fire. 
Speaking through a loudspeaker at the front of the demonstration, a man said: "This demonstration calls on justice for Grenfell. 
"Some of the biggest supporters of the Conservative Party are Zionists."They are responsible for the murder of the people in Grenfell. 
“The Zionist supporters of the Tory Party. Free, Free, Palestine!" 
One female shopper shouted "disgusting remarks". 
When the JC asked why one of the march leaders was able to express such an opinion openly, a female police officer said: "It's just an opinion." 
As the demonstration left its starting point outside the BBC building in Duchess Street, supporters held up banners stating: "Zionism is Racism" and "We are all Hezbollah". 
Chants from the crowd included the slogan "From the river to the sea - Palestine will be free”. 
But they also shouted: "Zionists/ISIS are the same. Only difference is the name". 
But also noticeable were the hundreds of smaller paper flags bearing the machine gun logo of the Hezbollah movement. 
One large Hezbollah flag was also flown next to a large Palestinian flag at the front of the march.
Note: Hezbollah is not a "proscribed terrorist organisation" in the UK and in Europe.  As Colonel Richard Kemp points out: "UK only designates part of Hizballah as terrorist yet whole organization is one, led by same terrorist leaders. Time to follow US & ban all." A completely spurious distinction is made between the supposed political and military wings of the movement. That's why demonstrators pinned this message on their flags: "This flag is to show my support for the political wing of Hizbullah".
