Who's the guy in the brown leather jacket?

Looks like he's had enough with these protestors.

Funny.

There’s so much wrong with this. First, why are they all covering their faces? Does not inspire public safety..

Second, they are literally holding up posters advertising the protest, at the protest.

They also made the “it is the capital of Palestine” in deliberately low contrast and thin text, almost as if trying to hide the message, why..?

Fourthly, why would they need to pray during this protest? Making it about religion basically makes this protest invalid in my eyes as shoving your religion out into everyone’s face in public is too much

I see two covered faces, two uncovered faces, and one that cannot tell.

Maybe it's just one of the 5 prayer times of the day.

Jerusalem and to whom it belongs has been a religious issue since the days of King David.

Muslims pray at the same times each day regardless of where they are. Also, I have seen plenty of Christians pray at rally's and public meetings.

I don't really have strong feelings on this subject but the rest of your post seems to be full of unnecessary negative comments.

These people aren't trying to cause a problem they are trying to make a point.

Six Muslims, 2 cops, a plainclothes officer and a lot of physical barriers. The Japanese tend not to take chances when it comes to this kind of thing.

They are doing nothing illegal and no harm.

Marrying kids of at onset of puberty was common for many millennia, the 16-18age is a rather new invention. In Victorian times you could still hire kids as young as age 10(possible younger for sex.

Everyone of the protester now have a file with picture.

pacint - until relatively recently, people kept slaves. Does that make it ok to do in 2017?

Didn't really think that through, did you?

Simple. Like the mass public prayers carried out in the streets of the UK, it is a act of intimidation. Nothing more, nothing less.

I don’t like any displays of religion in public whatsoever but there is nothing under Japanese law which bans this ( as far as I know ), and I don’t see how it invalidates the protest. Please explain how it invalidates it.

Peacful protests. A democratic right.

Right. I hate when that happens.

And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others.

You're not even in the same ballpark
