Did anyone try to stop him?

In an account of recent antisemitic events in the UK, the CST blog featured this photo of a demonstrator at one of the anti-Israel rallies in London.

The presence of this man and his sign raises some questions: Did any of the demonstration monitors see the sign? Assuming at least some of his fellow demonstrators noticed it, did anyone make any effort to remove the sign, remove the man or even admonish him?

One thing I can be quite sure of, however: if someone had tried to enter the demonstration carrying an Israeli flag or an “I Stand with Israel” sign, something would have happened to that person immediately.
