Far-left protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday to demand that Israel stop launching military strikes at the terrorists who were responsible for murdering 1,400+ Israeli citizens last weekend.
The group in question is “Jewish Voices for Peace,” and they are so radical that even Democrats were condemning them, including Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).
“Many have asked me ‘who is Jewish Voice for Peace?’” he posted on X. “Their website says they are ‘proud to be a part of the global, Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement,’ which, by its founder’s admission & tenets, seeks to end Israel as a Jewish & democratic state.”
U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) began arresting protestors when they were told that they had to leave because they were not allowed to protest there and they did not comply with police orders.
“We warned the protestors to stop demonstrating and when they did not comply we began arresting them,” police said in a statement. “Arrests in the Canon Rotunda and the rolling road closures are ongoing. Amongst these arrests, three people have been arrested and charged with Assault on a Police Officer during processing.”
Conservative radio host Jason Rantz posted on X: “The only connection to Judaism members from Jewish Voice for Peace have is their parents.”
“They’re not practicing Jews or culturally Jewish,” he added. “They just use the identity that doesn’t mean anything to them, to attack Israel and earn progressive street cred with people who hate them.”
