Aye

I spent 7 years in Bristol, the hippies there are of a breed I’ve never seen before. 
 

Another massive overreaction again though. You’d think it was fckn child abuse by the reaction.

No different to a parent taking a kid to church. It’s an anti-war protest ffs, hardly a radicalisation of the youth.

Yes let’s take kids to an event that they know nothing about and with a high chance of it kicking off! Parenting at its finest.

“Kicking off” 

😂😂👏👏 

That’s some claim, even by your standards.

 Happened at 11am today. Think there was a heated argument amongst the dreadlocked mothers about which local Steiner school was the best. I also heard a 5 year old pinched another kids chickpea crisps. Scary times.

Yes because there’s been no kicking off already 🤦🏻 . All those arrests must have been for parking on double yellows

It’s not the majority, that much is obvious. Breakaway groups, isolated incidents. Whatever you want to call it. Any one can video just the morons at a demo and make that out to be representative. It’s odd seeing people getting so sucked into these videos.

Palestian’s don’t condemn Hamas brutality enough 

And Israeli’s don’t condemn their own governments brutality enough

 the hatred is embedded. It’s odd ( again ) seeing people so obsessed with the actions and ignorance of only one side.

Obviously the Pro-Palestinian movement garners more attention - it's that movement which has been demonstrating on British streets for a month and it's that movement which has had it's supporters' ugliest sentiments so consistently highlighted

And again, the minority includes the event organisers

So some big protests, with a minority of idiots, should garner more attention than Israel’s brutality in the West Bank? 
 

It’s your choice to constantly be on the look out for videos (with no attempt to contextualise) that justify your view that it’s an ugly movement. You choose to do this rather than seek any understanding as to why they might be protesting. 
 

Maybe convincing yourself that they are all either ignorant, or wanting the destruction of Israel, is easier than looking into where the feeling of injustice comes from….

It garners more attention because of the direct impact it has on the country

Should or shouldn't is a different matter

You're not going to get the rise out of me that you're looking for

What I will make clear, though, is that if you think that's an accurate description of my thoughts and opinions, or my knowledge of the wider issue, you're very wrong

The conflict in Israel and Palestine also has a direct impact. We know all to well of the risks of escalating conflict. It has more of an impact on this country than a protest does. A ceasefire is in all our interests.

 Not looking for a rise 👍

 And fair enough 

You just seemed very focused on discrediting and generalising a whole movement of individuals from many different walks of life.
 

Of course some of this anti-Jewish sentiment is out there & it’s a big concern. But so is the constant barrage of anti-Muslim rhetoric. Which has been prevalent on here, something you seemed to have very little issue with 👍

I've challenged anti-Muslim rhetoric on here previously so you're wide of the mark there as well

Yeah totally agree with regard to Bristol 😄

It must be bloody exhausting getting that wound up all the time, like being in a permanently bad mood.

Fair do’s. My bad then 👍 just didn’t see it from many these past couple of days.

 Not that it’s your responsibility though 

Just interesting when we’re highlighting anti semitism that it goes so brazenly ignored by most.

All my family are teachers, this week they've dropped all their lesson plans and just followed the nationwide GCSE Palestinian indoctrination work scheme that's been rolled out by the wokeraity Edexcel.

Ever let reality get in the way of an ill informed fearful post is what I say.

What are on about? It’s a school strike- has nothing to do with teachers and would have gone down as an unauthorised absence. You are a bit of a drama Queen. When was the last time you were in a school?

It’s madness what people believe based on a few sporadic stories.

A Muslim teacher in our school also has a role supporting the council and has helped draft the guidance on approaching this conflict in schools.

Guidance was spot on. Make sure stay neutral but don’t shut down discussion if young people talk about it. 
 

We’ve had parents from both sides ask for us to make a statement of support, like everyone did with Ukraine. Obviously, that hasn’t been possible.

 There has been a rise in anti semitism and Islamophobia in schools. It’s teachers on the frontline tackling it and supporting those affected. Not stirring it up.
