The LAPD is searching for at least three suspects after a vicious hate crime was caught on tape; allegedly showing a mob of pro-Palestinian demonstrators attacking Jewish Americans while they ate at a restaurant in downtown Los Angeles.
“The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating a possible hate crime after pro-Palestinian demonstrators hopped out of their vehicles passing a Beverly Grove restaurant and allegedly began singling out and attacking Jewish diners as the brawl was caught on camera,” reports Fox News.
“Somebody in one of the cars driving by started throwing glass bottles or glass cups at the tables and they shattered everywhere,” a female diner, who didn’t want to be identified, told KCBS-TV.
The group allegedly harassed diners, asking “Who’s Jewish?”
L.A. is a city of belonging, not of hate.
There is simply no place for anti-Semitism, discrimination, or prejudice of any kind in Los Angeles. And we will never tolerate bigotry and violence in our communities.

🚨🚨 Tonight pro-Palestinian individuals were driving with megaphones around La Cienega & Beverly (a heavily Jewish area) in Los Angeles and threw objects at Jews at a restaurant table. Some threw things back.
The pro-Palestinian group came to the sidewalk to fight.

'IT WAS IRAN': Israel Says TEHRAN Behind Gaza Mortar Barrage
Israeli officials publicly blamed Iran for the recent mortar attack on southern Israel Wednesday, saying Tehran was the “culprit” behind the barrage that included 180 Iranian-manufactured shells.
According to the Jerusalem Post, IDF Spokesperson Ronen Manelis confirmed the mortar shells were produced inside the Islamic Republic and smuggled into the region by Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
“Despite Israel’s intelligence superiority over terror groups, as well a blockade imposed both by the IDF and Egypt, Hamas and other terror groups in the Strip have restocked their supply of weapons in the four years since the last round of fighting between Israel and Hamas,” writes the Post.
“The mass-produced Iranian mortar shells used in Tuesday’s salvos were also used by Islamic Jihad in an attack in January and in a barrage 12 mortar shells fired toward an army outpost in November,” adds the author.
The revelation raises new questions over Iran’s influence in the region as the United States urges western allies and other nations to help clampdown on Tehran’s nuclear program.
ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS: Cotton Rips ‘Whiny Reporters’ at the AP After Israel Destroys Hamas Targets in Gaza
Senator Tom Cotton called-out the Associated Press for willingly being used as “human shields” by Hamas Monday; saying only “whiny reporters” would make themselves the victim when terrorists shoot rockets at civilians in Israel.
“Why is the Associated Press sharing a building with Hamas? Surely, these intrepid reporters knew who their neighbors were. Did they knowingly allow themselves to be used as human shields by a terrorist organization?” asked Cotton.
“I submit that the AP has some uncomfortable questions to answer. Yet the AP and their journalists are unhappy about Israel’s appropriate airstrike. Leave it to whiny reporters to make themselves the story and the victim when terrorists are shooting missiles at innocent civilians,” he added.
