But yesterday from the Strand to Parliament Square the only raised voices were those ringing out in defiant song.
Tens of thousands of non-Jews standing with their embattled Jewish friends in a show of support not witnessed since the Battle of Cable Street in 1936.
But what provocation they have endured.
To Sky News and the BBC repeatedly giving equal moral weight to the release of child Israeli hostages and convicted Palestinian terrorists.
Admirably, British Jews did not take the bait.
There were no racist placards, no dressing-up in mock IDF uniforms.
This march, at least, showed civilised protest will always win over bile and hate.
THE Tories appear all at sea on migration — both legal and illegal.
Meanwhile, one of his junior ministers warns massive immigration could provoke the far Right and says voters want control of our borders.
They do. But who will provide it?
For all that the Tories have squandered the message of Take Back Control, Labour is no better.
Yesterday one of their shadow ministers pledged to get net migration down to 200,000 in five years.
How? On this point Labour remains vacuously vague.
There is a depressing lack of honesty in the immigration debate.
If politicians think letting in the population of Birmingham every year is a good idea they should say so.
And suffer the political consequences.
