Despite the Australian government's warm welcome for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the first visit of an acting Israeli premier Down Under, hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators took to the streets in Sydney on Thursday to protest against the visit.

Anti-Israel protesters brandished a banner depicting Netanyahu with a mustache in the fashion of Adolf Hitler with the word "Fascist" written across the bottom of the placard.

Others branded Netanyahu a "war criminal" and bemoaned Canberra's strong ties with the Israeli government and prime minister.

According to AFP, police blocked protesters attempting to march on Netayahu's hotel before they reached the building in central Sydney.
