A pro-Palestinian protester, who claims to work at an Australian Air Force base, has used vile anti-Semitic language as rallies were held across the country condemning Israel’s strong response to Hamas terror attacks.

The man spoke on the fringes of a rally at Hyde Park in Sydney on Sunday where more than 6,000 gathered to demand an end to the ‘Israeli apartheid’ and called for a cease-fire in Gaza.

Though the Sydney protest was generally more controlled than those held in Melbourne, the man was captured shouting ‘Get the f****** Jews wiped out’ during a furious rant as police watched on.

When a concerned onlooker stepped in to say ‘that language is not acceptable’, the man replied: ‘I don’t care as a Muslim’.

The clip posted to social media showed him delivering a lengthy outburst against Israel and the Australian government before a police officer approached the man to tell him ‘it is an offence to swear in public’ but then let him walk away.

The man replied: ‘I’m going home now. I work for the airport too, at the Richmond Airport’ – referring to the Royal Australian Air Force base in Richmond, 50km north-west of Sydney.

He then complained about the police warning, saying he was not allowed to speak freely because Australia is a ‘nanny state’.

‘We can’t do anything, we can’t protest, no free speech protest. We can’t express our opinion,’ he said.

‘We have become a nanny state, we are a nanny state.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted the Defence Force for comment. 

The protester was among the pro-Palestine supporters who defied NSW Premier Chris Minns calls to not attend the rally in central Sydney, while protests in Melbourne got more heated with flares set off and a blood-soaked baby doll held above the crowd.

Last week Hamas terrorists killed about 1200 Israeli civilians in what was described as the darkest day for Jews since the holocaust during World War II.

The Israel Defense Force in response launched a barrage of missile strikes on Gaza killing more than 2500 Palestinians.

A huge police presence in Sydney’s CBD on Sunday prevented a repeat of the ugly scenes seen last Monday at the Opera House by limiting it to a static event.

But in Melbourne 10,000 protesters marched on Sunday, initially following the lead of retiring Greens senator Janet Rice, who fired up the rally with chants of ‘Free, Free Palestine!’

The protesters heard fiery speeches at the State Library before setting off for the Victorian State Parliament carrying provocative signs and props.

The most confronting was a life-like doll of a child smeared in red and covered with band-aids, highlighting the deaths of children during the latest flare up of the eternal Jewish-Arab conflict.

In a show of force, more than 1,000 cops were on standby to deal with demonstrators after tense scenes erupted at a similar rally on Monday night as the Sydney Opera House was lit up in blue and white in a show of support for Israel.

Shocking footage from Monday’s event showed attendees chanting anti-Semitic slogans including ‘gas the Jews’ and ‘f*** Israel’, with some even throwing flares at police.

NSW Police revealed they did not use special powers given to them to crack down on demonstrators a week later.

NSW Police this week announced beefed-up security measures and ‘extraordinary powers’ after Premier Minns vowed to clamp down on protest activity.

The powers, which allow police to search protesters without a reason and to arrest people who refuse to identify themselves, were introduced after the 2005 Cronulla riots. 

‘It wasn’t necessary … Very clearly, based on the evidence of last Monday, there were serious concerns,’ Assistant Commissioner Tony Cooke said.

‘That was very much on the forefront of our minds, which is why you saw a significant police presence rolled out..

A police statement said Sunday’s rally concluded with no significant incidents, no arrests and no injuries.

‘We appreciate the co-operation of all involved for working with police to achieve today’s outcome,’ Assistant Commissioner Cooke said. 

‘There were people in the crowd that were providing the voice of reason to the members of their own communities.

‘That is exactly what we would expect.’

Sunday’s protest was initially planned as a march through Sydney’s streets, starting at Town Hall, but was scrapped just days out in favour of a static demonstration after organisers failed to get the rally authorised.

Authorisation requires organisers to submit an application for approval at least seven days prior to the rally.

Protesters gathered from midday, carrying signs expressing solidarity and support for Palestinians. 

‘Chris Minns wanted to ban Palestinian support – he picked the wrong fight, free Palestine,’ read one woman’s homemade sign. 

Daily Mail Australia witnessed a huge police presence on Sunday afternoon, with mounted cops patrolling Hyde Park and standing outside the Jewish synagogue.

Four men who were in a car flying Palestinian flags were pulled over and searched outside the Jewish synagogue by police on motorbikes before being let go.

Event organizers, who called for Australia to cut ties with Israel, asked attendees not to wear face coverings unless for medical or religious reasons to avoid troublemakers infiltrating the protest like on Monday.

They said they wanted to make it clear that the protest was ‘absolutely against anti-Semitism’ and preventing racism was ‘exactly what we’re fighting for’.

They tied the failure of the Voice to Parliament to the Palestinian cause – claiming both were victims of colonial supremacy. 

Indigenous activist Ethan Floyd Lybrand said the referendum outcome showed ‘First Nations people here in Australia and Palestinians around the world join in our shared struggle for liberation’.

‘Yesterday was an agonizing day, but it was a galvanizing day. It confirmed two things for us, one, that Australians have failed the judgment test time and time again,’ he said. 

‘It’s outrageous treatment of First Nations people and its inexplicable siding with a settler colonial state such as Israel. And two that we as First Nations people have yet again failed the test by placing our faith in Australia’s we should not and you should not place your faith in Australia.

‘Now we’re under no illusions about the kind of settler colonial project we live under. It is one which rejects any offer for First Nations people.’

Professor Peter Slezak, who is Jewish, said his parents both survived the holocaust and he knows anti-Semitism when he sees it – but the Palestinian cause was not it.

He said there are many Jews around the world who are ‘distressed’ and ‘shamed’ by how Israel has treated Palestine historically.

‘The attack on Israelis was said to be unprovoked but, in fact, it was a desperate breakout from a concentration camp by the people of Gaza,’ he said.

‘The world only pays attention when Israelis are killed and Palestine resists.

‘The people of Gaza have been under the most brutal, inhumane and illegal blockade. It’s a crime in international law for the past 16 years.

He added: ‘Of course, as we’ve heard today, usual cries as so called right to defend itself but it’s not self defense to starve the people of Gaza. That’s pure barbarity and a crime and international law.’

Event co-organiser Amal Naser previously said the decision to make the protest static was due to legal issues obtaining police protection.

‘We’ll be holding a static protest. We’re going to be out, loud and proud and we’re not going to bow down to the pressures that we’ve been experiencing from police and the premier,’ she said on Thursday.

‘We have full intention to march next week and every week after that as long as we need.’

Ms Naser said the demonstration was to show support for ‘what’s happening in Gaza right now’.

She said event organisers had been warned they were unlikely to get approval for future demonstrations, but would challenge those decisions in the Supreme Court.

The event organisers called for Australia to cut ties with Israel  

The two-hour event ended with a series of chants, including ‘Gaza, Gaza don’t you cry

Palestine will never die’ and ‘In our thousands, in our millions, we are all Palestinians.’

A police helicopter was seen hovering around Hyde Park as demonstrators disbanded. 

But event organisers vowed to rally again next Saturday outside Town Hall, despite the government’s requests.

‘Let’s come back and make the 10 times bigger again,’ they said.
