I recently saw an ad for an anti-Israel protest in Christchurch, New Zealand. Alongside a picture of the Palestinian flag, it proclaimed: ‘Come flag wave with us at the Blackcaps vs Pakistan game!’
I shared this ad on the Twitter, noting:
‘New Zealand is soon to play Pakistan, a country with a poor human rights record that is currently trying to deport almost 2 million Afghan refugees back to live under the tyrannical Taliban, so of course come along and protest Israel.
