Outside a Max Brenner coffee shop down under, in Melbourne, Australia, no less than nineteen anti-Israel protesters were arrested and three Melbourne city police men were lightly wounded, astonishingly, when the anti-Israel protesters attacked them.
The demonstration was to accuse the Jewish State of “ongoing ethnic cleansing.â€ The demonstration was held outside the Max Brenner store because its Israeli parent company, the Strauss Group, reportedly supports the IDF.
Federal Labor lawmaker Michael Danby accused the â€œprejudiced extremistsâ€ of being hypocrites.
He mentioned that:
“While 1500 people are murdered in Syria, they launch their own sad little attack on a chocolate shop because it also has stores in Israelâ€¦â€
One of the organizers of the protest, Salem Nasser, is said to belong to a group called Socialist Alternative.
The Socialist Alternative website, which organized the “demonstrations that successfully shut down the Israeli-owned Jericho/Black Pearl cosmetics company” found in the very same Melbourne shopping mall. Socialist Alternative advocates what it calls a “Third Intifada”. The organization also takes credit for a similar incident that happened outside a chocolate shop near Sydney last month.
