The 100 rioters in Malmö were not affiliated with the 4000 peaceful anti-Israel demonstrators. The 100 troublemakers infiltrated the demonstration line and sought to fight against the police, similar in style to G8 meeting rioters. The police parked their vans next to the 100 black dressed rioters, let the rioters demolish the vans unhindered while media got the pictures they wanted, and thereafter moved in to arrest the rioters. The organisers of the peaceful demonstration tried to stop the rioters and were beaten up as a result.
