    The men were arrested after video circulated on social media in May which appeared to show anti-Semitic abuse being shouted from a car travelling in a convoy decorated with Palestinian flags down a road in North London, which has a sizeable Jewish community.
    The men shouted "Free Palestine" and made calls to rape Jewish women.
    The protest was one of several held across Britain in response to the worst violence in years between Israel and Palestinian terror groups in Gaza, and prompted an increased police presence in Jewish areas of the British capital.
    The four men charged, aged 24, 25, 26 and 27, were due to appear in court in London on Wednesday, the Met said.
