LONDON – A British university lecturer told Global March to Jerusalem protesters on Friday evening that Jerusalem “does not belong to Jewish Israelis or to Jews” and that Israel is “finished.”

University of Exeter lecturer Ghada Karmi, speaking to protesters converged near the Israeli Embassy in London, went on to say that she “respects all religions” but that one should not be allowed to take over the city.

Karmi also said that Israel does not deserve to continue as a state.

“We have no alternative but to act. The only way we can stop Israel is to act against it, against its interests, against its apartheid and policies,” she told a gathering of around 200 protesters.

The Israeli Embassy was closed at the time for Shabbat.

Organized by the radical fringe group the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, the protest marked the Global March to Jerusalem event, which called for worldwide demonstrations against Israel.
