EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Hezbollah Flag Raised at Anti-AIPAC protest
Chant “The State of Israel’s Got to Go” and “Go Home” at Attendees.
Today, I braved an ice storm to video protests at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington, DC.
The nasty weather didn’t stop a group of around 60 anti-Israel activists from storming the steps of the Washington Convention Center and blocking at least one entrance to the conference grounds. Code Pink and other anti-Israeli groups went into a frenzy against AIPAC, the “Israel lobby,” and what they believe is the “Apartheid” State of Israel.
I also saw harassment of men, women, and children who had done nothing to deserve it except make the mistake of revealing their conference badge before they reached the door. Those who were obviously religious Jews (based on their head coverings, clothing, and facial hair) got it worse. There were shouts of “Go Home” hurled at the attendees.
There was also the Hezbollah flag flying overhead, as this video shows. There were chants that “BDS is the best” (Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement), and “The State of Israel’s Got to Go.”
At the door to the convention center, several people blocked the door. This included Ariel Gold and Beth Harris, the two women leading the movement to convince Greenstar Food Coop in Ithaca (NY) to boycott certain Israeli products, as we have previously covered.
Gold and a few others rushed and tried to block the door, and were arrested when they refused to leave (it is unclear if Harris was arrested, as she appeared to move away after the police announced they were under arrest)(update – apparently Harris was arrested too):
One of the protesters wore a Justice4Rasmea jacket, referring to convicted Jerusalem supermarket bomber Rasmea Odeh, who recently also was convicted of immigration fraud in Detroit.

I’d LOVE to see a “free” Palestine.
I’ve little doubt that there are Palestinians who’d really like that, too.
But they can’t do much about it because they’d immediately be dragged out into the streets and murdered.
The Proggies aren’t trying to hide it anymore, are they?
Don’t these people know they are getting a little ahead of themselves?
Suppose Britain and France had acted earlier and had managed to contain Nazi Germany, containing it and isolating it? By now liberals would be marching on behalf of the poor, oppressed Nazis.
If you remember the loony left in Europe and the U.S. were supporting Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin as the best political systems since sliced bread all the way up to the time the bombs started falling and they did not slither back in their holes in the U.S. until 12/07/41
That’s exactly right. In fact, the New Republic Magazine, which was launched in 1914 to be a platform for Progressive politics, was very supportive of Benito Mussolini.
My only question is will CNN show these flags inside the Democratic convention next year in Philadelphia?

Wow! Giving aid and comfort to the enemy?! This is highly treasonous! Hezbos are actively fighting all infidels on the planet; they have been on the US, EU, and many other terror lists.
Good job attending & reporting on this. “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
