Anti-Israel protesters in Brussels drink "blood wine"

The Philosemitism blog noticed that there was a demonstration in Brussels a couple of days ago against Dexia, a bank that has an Israeli subsidiary.

Some 75 NGOs participated in this march, including ICAHD.

One of the demonstrators, dressed as a clown, drank "blood"out of a wine glass as an obvious reference to the blood libel of Jews drinking Christian blood for their wine. He said (translated):

"Ohhhh. Bravo. No blood money. (Applause) Cheers Israël. Ohhhhhh. (Applause) I love blood. Have a glass of wine. I love blood. Have a glass of wine."

You can watch the video here, but it is in French.
