Pro-Israel supporters have taken to the streets after a cinema was vandalised with graffiti for planning to indicate a movie in regards to the Nova competition bloodbath by the hands of Hamas terrorists.

Pro-Palestine activists sprayed the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley, London, with the message “say no to artwashing”. In response, members of the Jewish group and campaigners in opposition to anti-Semitism are holding an illustration outdoors the picturehouse.

Music may very well be heard blaring, together with Elton John’s I’m Still Standing, as smiling pro-Israel supporters waved the Israeli flag in a present of defiance.

A tiny band of pro-Palestine protesters are on the scene, nevertheless they’re vastly outnumbered.

Members of the area people attended the scene following the graffiti assault to take away the paint.

One volunteer, who wished to stay nameless, informed The Telegraph: “It’s just an outrage. People who are survivors of this massacre are coming here and they could have been confronted with red graffiti that honestly looked like blood.

“One of the people here knows someone who survived the massacre and she was coming tonight. Imagine the trauma if she saw this. People from the community have gone together to clean it up.

“It claimed that the film was artwashing – but it’s not. It’s footage from the festival. It shows what happened. There’s no agenda.

“People have clearly got the wrong idea about this film. And to take it out on The Phoenix – a charity? It’s awful.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson stated: “Police were called at 10:11hrs on Thursday, 23 May to reports of criminal damage at the Phoenix Cinema in High Road N2.

“An investigation has been launched. There have been no arrests. While enquiries are ongoing, at this time the incident is being investigated as a potential hate crime.
