Malmö, Sweden: Several arrested during pro-Israel protest
Here’s a video of one of the rocket strikes over the heads of the pro-Israeli demonstrators picked up from the fabulous website, Gate of Vienna
Ted Ekeroth reports on this protest on his blog: Arabs throws pipebombs and fires rockets on peacful pro-israeli demonstrationThe anti-Israel demonstrators waved a sign "Thanks for the latest, damned pigs", which references the recent news story that Malmö police referred to Muslim rioters as "damned immigrants".

Sydsvenskan updated their article, as pointed out in the comments by Ted Ekeroth.
The pro-Israel demonstration was about 300-400 people, while the anti-Israel demonstration was 200-300 people.

That is the headline on Swedish sites. When reading the article, however, I discovered that the pro-Israel protest of about 100 people was peaceful. It was met with a counter-demonstration of about 300 people who tried to disturb the protest with firecrackers and violence against the agents. The police put enough distance between the pro-Israel demonstration and the anti-Israel demonstration so that the counter-demonstrators were only facing the police.
Five of the anti-Israel protesters were taken into custody.
Anwaar Al-Sharkawi was among the counter-demonstrators, together with her daughter Fatima.
"I'm against the state of ISrael - there is no country called Israel. Of course it's not Israel's government which is here - but those who are here support them," says Anwaar Al-Sharkawi.
Her daughter adds:
"I worry about my homeland. We have more right to be here than them," says Fatima Al-Sharkawi.
