Migrants throughout Europe have reportedly praised and celebrated Hamas’ latest attacks against Israel. The attacks have resulted in more than 150 deaths, and the conflict appears to have no end in sight.
Videos have circulated across social media, appearing to show people cheering for the horrific attacks that have been carried out against Israeli citizens. Many of those cheering are reportedly asylum seekers throughout Europe, according to the Telegraph.
One of the videos is reportedly from Amsterdam, where many Hamas sympathizers took to the streets to show their support for the Palestinian group.
A second video that has been going around features a group cheering for Hamas from Greece. The footage was published to TikTok and was apparently taken from the eastern Aegean island of Samos, where the Greek government has set up a “closed” camp for migrants. The area has been plagued by a migrant crisis for some time.
Some of the refugees there, many of whom are from Syria and Iraq, chanted “Allah Akbar,” which means “God is great.”
However, Greece and Amsterdam are not the only places where sympathizers of the terrorist acts by Hamas have offered their support. The Telegraph reported that in Tehran, the government welcomed Hamas’ military operation, with supporters waving the Palestinian flag.
Even supporters have come out in the UK, with Rivkah Brown, a journalist for the website Novara, said: “Today should be a day of celebration for supporters of democracy and human rights worldwide, as Gazans break out of their open-air prison and Hamas fighters cross into their colonisers’ territory.”
“The struggle for freedom is rarely bloodless and we shouldn’t apologise for it.”
The head of the Palestinian Mission to the UK, Husam Zomlot, said the “statements about ‘Israel’s right to self-defence’ will only be interpreted by the most fanatical Israeli government as a green light to commit further massacres against the occupied people of Palestine.”
Politico reported that the UK, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy have made moves to strengthen police protection for various Jewish communities amid the terrorist attacks by Palestinians.
Due to the attacks, European governments fear that there could be a concerted effort to attack Jewish people in their countries. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared that the situation is officially a war, which could see consequences appearing in other countries around the world.
Because Palestinian supporters were out celebrating in the UK on Saturday, the police there have instituted “reassurance patrols,” attempting to dissuade any possible acts of violence against Jewish people.
There is also the potential that protests could be ignited throughout the UK as the conflict in the Middle East continues. London’s Metropolitan Police said: “We will ensure that an appropriate policing plan is in place in order to balance the right to protest against any disruption to Londoners.”
