This conflict summons the worst humans are capable of. While there may be moderates in the various groups there is at the same time the worst sort of people and they are very active.

The far left has a really dangerous antisemitic strain that has been activated by the demonstrations. That is likely to produce a strong backlash. In our current crazy political climate the backlash could be stronger than whatever the demonstrations accomplish. Or not. I don't know anything except that the current situation is not good and it is uncertain.
