UK Prime Minister calls for stronger police response to anti-Israel protesters

London (AFP) – Britain’s Prime Minister Rishi Sunak makes a rare Downing Street statement to the media in which he strongly criticises “Islamist extremists and far-right groups” who he says are “spreading a poison” of extremism. His statement comes after the issue of the Gaza war upended a by-election in Rochdale, with the Labour candidate withdrawing due to anti-Israel comments and the winning politician, leftwing firebrand George Galloway, pledging full support for the Palestinian people.
