Israel president calls for BAN on Remembrance Day pro-Palestine march & tells Piers Morgan demo would be ‘atrocious’ | The Sun
ISRAEL'S President has called for a ban on the pro-Palestine march taking place on Remembrance Day.
In an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan Uncensored, President Isaac Herzog labelled the London protest "atrocious and hypocritical".
In an emotional and highly-charged one-on-one interview, the President said: "I call upon all decent human beings to object to the march and ban it.
"Because the symbol of that day is a symbol of victory and it’s a symbol of doing good.
"Because when you fight evil, sometimes you have to fight.
"You have to fight evil in order to uproot evil."

Met chief Sir Mark Rowley was also urged to ensure services for our war dead are not “hijacked” after weekend chaos.
Sgt Jay Baldwin, 38, who lost his legs in Afghanistan, said: “What is happening in the Middle East is terrible.
“But next weekend is when we remember those who have fallen whilst defending our freedom and our life as it is today — it’s not a time for political demos.”
Former Staff Sergeant Wayne Ingram, 54, added: “I feel disgusted that these protests are going ahead.
“Those who are taking part must show some respect for our veterans.
“If anything happened to war memorials around the country, it may well be a prelude to veterans kicking off they feel so angry.”

Home Secretary Suella Braverman faced calls to ban the rally, with cops resistant to stopping it.
Police were told to use all their powers to ensure train stations are not blocked by sit-ins.
Heroes’ families will also be heading to the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, plus Sunday’s remembrance service at The Cenotaph in Whitehall.
The march on Saturday will start almost two hours after the silence.
The Palestinian Solidarity Campaign said it had “no intention of marching on or near Whitehall” on Saturday, and no protest was planned for Sunday.
The group said: “Given these facts, we are alarmed by members of the Government, including the Prime Minster, issuing statements suggesting that the march is a direct threat to The Cenotaph and designed to disrupt the Remembrance Sunday commemorations.
