Anti-Israel radicals on Friday protested and rioted around the world after former Hamas leader Khaled Mashal called for a "day of jihad" to allow Muslims to rant about the terror attack launched by Hamas against Israel only last weekend.
Thousands have died as a result of that clash, in which terrorists from Hamas crossed the border into Israel, massacring hundreds at a music festival and then hundreds more in various villages near the Gaza border, where they shot entire families in their beds, burned other families alive, and even gave evidence of their depravity by beheading babies.
The Daily Mail published dozens of images of various demonstrations around the globe.
In Iraq, the demonstrations erupted after Friday prayers. In Japan and Bangladesh, thousands condemned Israel's defense of its own citizens from the terrorists.
"Thousands of demonstrators gathered Friday in Tahrir Square in the center of Baghdad, and similar protests have been held in Lebanon and other Arab countries following afternoon prayers," the report said.
In Iran, Bangladesh, and Malaysia, protesters and rioters burned Israeli and American flags and in Beirut Hezbollah backers waved Hezbollah and Palestinian flags.
Protesters got into altercations with police in Berlin.
WND reported earlier in the week on Mashal's demand for his day of jihad.
In a video posted online by the Liberty Daily, Mashal spent minutes praising the terrorists who last weekend launched a depraved attack on Israel, killing probably 1,000 innocent civilians including babies who were gruesomely decapitated.
He blamed the violence on the "criminal occupation" of Israel in line with his group's ideology that calls for, like the Iranian regime demands, the total elimination of Israel.
It was Iran that likely funded some of the costs of the barrage of attacks that now has triggered Israel into a full-scale lockdown of Gaza, and its probable destruction.
Mashal threatened: "There is an invitation on Friday. Friday. A flood to Al-Aqsa. But they do it before Friday, after Friday, and on Friday. We want to tell the Zionists, their criminal leaders, their forces, and the Americans who came to their rescue because they have a double standard, they see Ukraine's fight as fair but they do not see the battle of the Palestinian people as just."
He continued, "They sent a message across the squares and squares. Anger message. We are with Palestine. With Gaza. With Al-Aqsa. With Jerusalem, and we are part of this battle."
The report revealed images of Hamas supporters kicking at burning tires that had been piled in the streets of Gaza, and in Kuala Lumpur Muslims burned Israeli flags.
Hundreds rallied in Indonesia's capital to wave banners pledging solitary with the terrorists, and in Iraq, protesters and rioters chanted, "No to the occupation! No to America!"
The Daily Mail reported in Tokyo, that Muslims were in a standoff with police on the streets at the Israeli embassy, only 24 hours after pro-Israel supporters were peacefully singing there.
Iran's president, Ebrahi Raisi, said, "The Palestinian people are fed up, now your idea is to destroy Gaza, the houses of the people. The people of the world and Palestine will cause trouble for you."
The report explained, "And in the Saudi capital Riyadh, where protests are prohibited, an AFP journalist witnessed police cuffing a worshipper who interrupted Friday prayers by shouting at the imam: 'Speak about Palestine! Gaza is under bombs!'"
Naim Qassem, deputy for Hezbollah, promised his extremists are "fully prepared" to partner with Hamas against Israel when the time is right.
The Daily Mail continued, "In Yemen's Sanaa, held by the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels still at war with a Saudi-led coalition, live television footage showed demonstrators crowding streets and waving Yemeni and Palestinian flags. The rebels' slogan long has been: 'God is the greatest; death to America; death to Israel; the curse of the Jews; victory to Islam.'"
The report added, "MEMRI said that Hamas urged its supporters in Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel to rise in what he called 'the Al-Aqsa Flood' - echoing what the secretive Palestinian mastermind Mohammed Deif calls the attack he launched on Saturday against Israel."
