  • Description

    Several thousand chanting Arabs demonstrated in London on Sunday (14th October) with banners and placards denouncing Israel and the United States -- and proclaiming support for the Arab armies in the Middle East war.

    The demonstrators, estimated by police at about 5,000, gathered at London's Hyde Park to hear speeches before marching on the United States and Israeli Embassies to hand in petitions.

    A rival pro-Israeli rally was also being held in Central London's Trafalgar Square.

    Police kept watch as the Arab marchers -- including contingents of Iranian and Pakistani students -- began an orderly parade, accompanied by cars with loud-hailers, chanting "Down with Israel".

    Traffic was brought to a halt in the capitals' main shopping centre in Oxford Street an route to the United States Embassy.

    The Arabs chanted and waved placards saying "Down with American-Zionist policy", "Use the oil weapon" and "Victory for the Arabs."
    They delivered a petition to the Embassy protesting against United States support for Israel, before continuing their march without incident to the heavily-guarded Israeli Embassy about two miles away.
