Netherlands: Anti-racism day demo features antisemitic, anti-Israel speakers

On March 21st, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, various anti-racism orgs in the Netherlands united for a joint protest.  Against racism, Islmophobia, Afro-phobia, and antisemitism.
Of course, the antisemitism part was just for show.  
Among the invited speakers were rapper Appa and Abulkasim Al-Jaberi.
Appa believes in Zionist conspiracy theories.  He also previously made headlines by announcing "Fuck the Zionists, Fuck the Talmud".
Appa was quite upset to be accused of antisemitism.  He's an anti-Zionist, not an antisemite at all.  Those Jews Zionists are trying to shut him up by accusing him of being an antisemite.  To fight this he set up a page called "I am Appa".
Abulkasim Al-Jaberi is from an organization called "Back to Palestine".  What does this have to do with racism and discrimination in the Netherlands?  Absolutely nothing.  But the organizers really wanted to make Jews feel welcome.
