In Birmingham, England, anti-Muslim rioters/skirmishers, calling themselves the English Defence League, held aloft the Israeli flag as a symbol of their antagonism. Richard Silverstein writes:
it is important to understand how the racist nativists throughout Europe and the west see Israel. They see it as their bulwark against the hated dark Muslim hordes. Certainly, part of the reason is the anti-Muslim ideology espoused by members of the Israeli government and political right. It is due to the astonishing level of violence with which Israel has met resistance from Arab and Muslim groups and nations.
