A British supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement was escorted away by police during a demonstration in Brighton, England after aggressively yelling at a Jewish protester.

A video uploaded to YouTube on Monday shows the raging activist, identified in the clip only as “Dick,” losing his cool when someone in the crowd plays a kazoo.  According to blogger Elder of Ziyon, the impromptu musician was a member of local pro-Israel group Sussex Friends of Israel.

Dick, who is seen brandishing a Palestinian flag in the video, shouts loudly in the man’s face. Two police officers then approach Dick from behind and escort him away.

Watch Dick yelling in the video below:

    what´s the problem with Dick´s reaction? All he had to counter the kazoo was his voice!
    Shouting the kazoo down or screaming in the face of the player… same result.

  • The Little One

    I heard this over the road!
    Turned around to see Dick screaming in someone’s face…
    The expression on Dick’s face, as he is “unexpectedly” carted off his priceless! “Who? ME? Whut have I done???”

    They can dish it out but they sure can’t take it, this was just one video of many incidents that capture the true nature of the BDS bigots who ostensibly make out they are all about human rights issues, but a little digging below the surface shows this is a lie…their core concern is the deconstruction of Israel as a Jewish State…their methods are lies and defaming as they try to undermine the legitimacy of Israel.

    Extraordinary. I think Dick is displaying the frustration that all the BDS members are feeling, but they probably have a bit more self control. This clip
    has to go world wide, it’s going to be the boycotters nightmare.

    Duck watching Sussex friends of Israel style outside Ecostream. Hilarious BDS FAIL!!

    If it looks like a duck,walks like a duck and talks like a duck,then it probably is a Duck ! Enjoy GlennDuck !

  • Peter

    This is the video of the Sussex Friends of Israel counter protest against the boycotting of Ecostream Brighton on the 22nd March 2014 ! Enjoy my friends Shalom

    Wow what a lunatic. The sound of Jews enjoying themselves must have really pushed his buttons. But BDSers are anti Zionist of course.

  • georgina

    Bit of background. Dick is a committed member of the Brighton PSC (Palestinian Solidarity Campaign) fraternity who a few months back went and sheltered inside Ecostream (that’s the shop they’re boycotting) as it was raining!!!

    Say what you like, one’s got to admire his conviction.

    • Harvey

      Is that his conviction or his police conviction . I’m confused

    • BonniePrinceCharlie

      And his desire to live up to his name!!!!

  • Harvey

    The boycott hate brigade thought it would be open season against Soda Stream . They did not reckon on the incredible pro Israel activism displayed by Sussex Friends of Israel . BDS numbers are down and they are being regularly routed by a combination of humour , food , music and brilliant distribution of pertinent leaflets and banners . Visit SFI facebook wall and like and share .

    For anyone living close enough try to visit and see off the BDS thugs .

  • Raymond, I took the video and its not kazoos but duck calls. The reason for which are that if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and swims like a duck, it probably is a duck. If the BDS talk like anti-Semites, walk like anti-Semites and look like anti-Semites, chances are they are anti-Semites, hence the duck calls!! Loads more videos of our regular pro-Israel/anti-BDS rallies (we have been standing outside Sodastream owned shop, Ecostream, for nearly two years) on our Facebook site at

  • Martin R

    Not a Kazoo it was a Duck Call! If it looks like a duck, walks like a Duck…,,,,,,
    Please see the great work of Sussex Friends of Israel on Facebook. They are there every week rain or shine promoting Israel against these haters. As you can see it drivers the BDS Quackers

  • Raymond in DC

    Ah, the power of mockery. Leftists use it against their enemies, but they’re left unmoored (or, as here, unhinged) when it’s used against them. Anyone know where one can buy a kazoo?

  • Mike

    The power of the kazoo. I think I buy one for my next staff meeting.
