Pro Hamas Terrorists Attack
Yes, this happened in America. Even more disturbing, it happened in front of the White House.
We are witnessing a rise of anti-Semitism in this country with not only pro-Hamas terrorist sympathizers in Hollywood standing in solidarity with the terrorisst and against Israel, but there is also an increasing number of pro-Hamas terrorist rallies being held across the United States. Even more disturbing is the fact that the Obama regime remains largely silent. In fact, they have made numerous statements that has led some, including FOX News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro, to wonder just whose side Obama is on.
Over the weekend, a large group, of pro-Hamas terrorists held a rally in front of the White House. There was a pro-Israel group across the street in counter-protest. In total, D.C. police estimated there to be 10,000 in attendance. The pro-Hamas terrorist group openly berated the Israel supporters, blowing loud horns to cover up chants in favor of Israel and yelling things like “Free, Free Palestine” and “End the Genocide.”
As if that were not disturbing enough, one brave man crossed over onto the pro-Hamas terrorist side to show that he was not afraid and would stand with Israel. Former Marine Manny Vega served during the Iraq War. He is non-Jewish and is of Puerto Rican descent. Vega wanted to make it clear to Israelis that there were many in America who stood with them. So, he proudly held his American flag in one hand and an Israeli flag in another amidst the pro-Hamas terrorist group. (Watch Video Below)
The events that transpired are, in one word, frightening. Breitbart reports that Vega was attacked by the pro-Hamas terrorist crowd after trying to have a civil conversation with one Muslim in attendance. The chased him, cursed at him, hurled epithets at him, and tried to burn his Israeli flag while he was holding it.
Vega had this to say about the violence that he experienced at the hands of the pro-Hamas terrorist group.
“Hey, I’m not going to be pushed out of here… If I was in Palestine, my throat my throat would be slit, but I’m in front of the White House. This is America, and I have every right to be here with the American flag, and the Israeli flag as a counter protest to the ‘Free Gaza, Anti-Occupation’ protest here. And pro-Hamas.”
According to Pamela Geller, sponsors of the rally were as follows:
ANSWER Coalition – American Muslims for Palestine (AMP)
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
American Muslim Alliance (AMA)
Al-Awda: Palestine Right to Return Coalition
Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)
Muslim Legal Fund of America – MAS
Immigrant Justice Center
In 2012, the Daily Caller reported that the Obama White House met with the Muslim group CAIR and other Muslim groups in an effort to ‘reduce anti-terrorism investigations.’ CAIR alone had 20 meetings with the Obama White House despite warnings from the FBI that CAIR was an inppropriate liaison partner due to their ties to Hamas terrorists.
