Hate at Home: Jewish Students in NYC Forced to Hide from Pro-Palestinian Mob [WATCH]

Jewish students at NYC’s Cooper Union were barricaded inside the university library after a pro-Palestinian mob got out of control and got through security.

A Jewish senior at the East Village institution recounted the terrifying moment for The New York Post.

“When they started banging on the door, my heart started pounding. I was crying. I think if the doors weren’t locked — I don’t know what would have happened,” the student, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Post.

“I don’t want to speculate what would’ve happened. It just makes me too nervous. I was absolutely terrified in that moment.”

From The New York Post:

The demonstrators — who were carrying Palestinian flags and “Zionism Hands Off Our Universities” signs — had scheduled the 1 p.m. demonstration outside the 7 E. 7th St. building when they decided to move through the interior.

It appeared as though they were heading toward university president Laura Spark’s office to demand she condemn Israel’s attacks on Gaza Strip civilians when they pivoted to the library, the student said.

The group of several dozen demonstrators breezed past security’s feeble attempts to stop them from climbing the stairs as they chanted “Free Palestine,” video shows.

College campuses continue to be a hotbed of anti-semitic attacks in the wake of the horrific attacks on Israel carried out by the terrorist group Hamas.
