Avigdor Lieberman's "Warm" Welcome in London

The British public decided to play a little game called "Spot the Racist Nazi"

A large crowd of people gather in front of UK Foreign Ministry, protesting ultra-nationalist Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's London visit.

The protesters, among them antiwar groups, activist and Human rights groups like Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and Jews for Justice for Palestinians rallied outside the Ministry's headquarters in London shouting slogans such as "Racist terrorist not welcome."

There were no reports about Lieberman's trip to London as part of his European tour. Lieberman arrived in London Tuesday afternoon and is to leave the UK after talks with his counterpart David Miliband.

The hardliner Israeli minister was dubbed 'racist' by his critics after making harsh statements about Arab Israeli lawmakers and refusing to recognize Palestine's statehood. link
