Man taunts them as they leave: “Philly waking up. Revelation 2:09, the synagogue of Satan.”
Black Lives Matters rioters in Philadelphia chased away Jewish men trying to show solidarity.
The mob claimed the Jewish men belonged to the “synagogue of Satan.”

From The New York Post:
“Amalek, what y’all doing down here? You don’t live here,” someone asks the men, referencing the Amalek tribe, which the Jewish Virtual Library says was the first enemy of the ancient Israelites.
“Y’all know we the real Jews, right?” continues the raspy-voiced man, who appears to be the one filming the clip.
“This ain’t your fight. Y’all gotta go,” another man tells them, as others start ganging up on them, shouting for them to leave.
“We’re just showing solidarity,” one of the Jewish men politely tells them, agreeing to leave but being surrounded and repeatedly told, “Get the f–k out!”
One of the protest group, hiding behind a full-face mask, violently pushes one of the Jewish men, and several appear to follow them as the abuse continues as they leave.
“Philly waking up. Revelation 2:09, the synagogue of Satan,” the man who confronted them says as they leave.
Are these men shocked? These riots have nothing to do with social justice or equality. It has to do with violence and chaos and spreading their own hatred and racism.
Samantha Mandeles has done a wonderful job reporting on the anti-Semitism and anti-Israel violence seeping into the riots after George Floyd’s death in late May.
Orthodox Jews violently attacked by mob @ BLM protest last night in Philly. They told protesters they were there to show solidarity. Mob shouted anti Semitic & racist hate as they assaulted victims. Spoke to victim, says he feared for his life. This needs to be condemned by all! pic.twitter.com/oAY2kSaqM4
