A handful of anti-Israel posters were found in London May 5, including one on a bus stop stating, “Israel’s killing children again. Enjoy your weekend.”
The posters are seemingly referencing the death of a pregnant Palestinian woman in the Gaza Strip over the weekend; Hamas has blamed the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for her death, but the IDF tweeted that a failed Hamas rocket killed the pregnant woman.
Pete Newbon, a romantic and Victorian-era literature lecturer at Northrumbia University, tweeted, “The Assad regime has murdered hundreds of thousands of its citizens with illegal weapons in eight years of war. In Venezuela people are literally starving under a kleptocracy. Russia is occupying Chechnya, and parts of Georgia and Ukraine. But only one state gets these posters.”
In September, various London bus stops were plastered with posters that read, “Israel is a racist endeavor.”
