One of the protesters hands him a leaflet. After all, the young man's sure to be receptive to material demonising the Zionist Entity, right?
Wrong! The young man in question, from Iraq and of mixed Iraqi and Iranian parentage, is in fact a staunch and well-informed supporter of Israel, and superbly capable of challenging the BDSers' nonsense (in which that infamous set of Four Maps plays its mute mendacious part).
The ensuing scene is one of chaos and confusion, as an eclectic cast of characters joins the young Iraqi man in a counter-demo, throwing the BDSers into confusion, and making a bespectacled woman in a "Free Palestine" t-shirt scurry off to complain to a trio of cops. She never does seem to recover her calm ...
Catcalls from the counter-protesters are answered by anti-Israel chants from the BDSers, whose plans for the day have clearly gone awry. Adding to the cacophony are cries (not all of them politically correct) from an American-accented guy wearing a tallit and what looks like a Zahal beret. At one point, he's politely led away by a Mr Plod for what's presumably a pep talk.
The young Iraqi man recalls on his download message onYouTube:
"We were walking along oxford street, central London, BDS supporters were horrified by our stance and ran to the police as if we were terrorists (Which were her allegations), there after another pro Israeli, made his presence felt by giving facts about the muslim world, I then came across a Kuwaiti at 24:10, and when asked about the rape of kuwaiti women by palestinians, when saddam invaded, after the palestinians had sided with saddam, he nodded! At 26:15, I then came across an Egyptian who not only claims that Israelis are the culprits but also claimed that christian copts are persecuting muslims in Egypt!"Amid the comedic scenes, some serious snippets, then. They include the young Iraqi man's message to the Egyptian: "This is a genocidal campaign against the only sane nation in the Middle East".
Adding to the comedic feel of the video are certain captions (purporting to be the thoughts of the BDsers), not all of them in good taste.
