Pro-Palestine protest greets Israel's Netanyahu on London visit

Judicial overhaul proposals, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in London meeting his British counterpart Rishi Sunk. Outside number 10 though, protests by gentiles and Jews, telling him he's not welcome here.

A sentiment echoed by other anti-apartheid campaigners here, among them the International Center of Justice for Palestinians who've called on the British Government to refer Israel and Netanyahu to in the International Court of Justice for war crimes in Palestine.

The protesters say the UK government welcoming Netanyahu here is a mark of approval for Israel's right-wing government, that it provides the Israeli regime with further cover to steal/annex more Palestinian territory and to continue with its campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians.

Earlier this week, the UK and Israel signed a so-called '2030 roadmap for UK-Israel relations" strengthening bilateral ties with a regime whose finance minister denies the existence of a Palestinian people.

But while all eyes are on the intensified Israeli violence against Palestinians, others are highlighting another important reason that's dragged an embattled Netanyahu to Europe. His trip comes in the wake of the recent Chinese-brokered rapprochement between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Netanyahu could be here to gauge European governments' position on Iran.

From London, the Israeli PM will be flying to Berlin Germany, where he is expected to be greeted with similar protests.
