Thousands have taken to the streets of London to protest

Pro-Palestine protests descended into chaos on the streets of London with one individual spotted on camera making what appeared to be a pro-Isis gesture.

Recounting the experience of travelling through London as the unrest played out, GB News presenter Nigel Farage questioned whether the police should be doing “more” as Sunak promised to clamp down on Hamas supporters.

It comes as war rages between Israel and Hamas terrorists for a fourth day, killing hundreds on both sides, after militants invaded Israel in a surprise attack.

One demonstrator took a break from the protests to speak to GB News, where he repeatedly held up his index finger in what could be considered a nod to Isis.

The man, covering up his face in what appeared to be a balaclava, then refused to answer any more questions, holding a finger over his lips before proceeding to hold it up yet again.

Speaking on GB News, Farage discussed the incident, saying the individual was acting in a “deeply provocative” manner.

“I can assure you, as the evening went on there were bottles flying and things got heated”, he said.

“Some of the language was open to question. A balaclava’d man we spoke to made a certain gesture with his right index finger.

“When asked about the murder of innocent civilians, he had absolutely nothing to say. And what of that gesture?

“Many would say it’s an old Islamic symbol to say there is ‘just one God’.

“It has however been appropriated by Isis in the last few years. I’m not saying this individual was Isis, but I am saying this was at the very least, deeply provocative.”

The former Brexit Party leader cited Home Secretary Suella Braverman who has demanded action from police officers who bear witness to blatant acts of support for Hamas.

“What we had on the streets of London were some of the most vilest, racist and basest things you could ever hear”, he said.

“Yet, there were very few arrests.

“If any of you stood outside a mosque tonight and shouted out vile abuse about the Muslim religion, within about 20 minutes you would have your collar felt by the Old Bill.”

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has vowed to hold anyone found to be supporting Hamas to account after the group’s “barbaric acts of terrorism”.

Sunak added that Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip and facilitated a deadly attack on Israel at the weekend, is a “proscribed terror organisation” banned in the UK.

“People should not be supporting Hamas and we will make sure that we hold people to account if they are,” he told broadcasters on Tuesday.

The message was backed by Foreign Secretary James Cleverly who called on pro-Palestine supporters in the UK not to protest, saying demonstrations are creating “distress”.

Sunak has acted to reassure the British Jewish community in the wake of the surprise assaults by Hamas.

The Prime Minister used a visit to a north London synagogue on Monday to tell those gathered for prayer that he stands by Israel.
