Pro-Hamas people are trying to say a man suddenly opened fire on them. The whole video shows self-defense. Even the police agree and won’t charge him.
Skokie, IL, has a large Jewish population.

So I’m not shocked that these anti-Jew people chose to show up in Skokie.
The protesters attacked two Turning Point staffers as they escorted an elderly couple to the pro-Israel rally.
A Jewish man was violently assaulted by a mob of pro Palestinian supporters at a Chicago area (Skokie) protest yesterday.

Yesterday in Skokie, myself & @TPUSA coworker were violently attacked by Pro-Hamas protestors while trying to escort a lost, elderly Jewish couple to the Pro-Israel event.
I was punched repeatedly, kicked in the head, and hit with a flagpole.

Skokie’s grocery stores have large Kosher sections due to the Jewish population. I miss working in a Kosher bakery!!
So Laura is wrong. It’s not a Kosher market and Jews do not make up most of Skokie’s population.
This is awful.
Palestinians relocated their pro-HAMAS rally to the parking lot of a Jewish supermarket in #Skokie, Illinois today where Jews were scheduled to be rallying in support of Israel.

Remember how everyone framed the Minneapolis story as, “Man Drives Through Rally,” and it was wrong?
Well, a man opened fire in Skokie after anti-Jew protesters swarmed and attacked him. No one was hurt, and the police won’t charge him:
“After reviewing the evidence, which includes surveillance video and witness statements, we have determined the individual … acted in self-defense upon being surrounded by a crowd and attacked by some of those individuals,” according to the statement.
A crowd of approximately 200 pro-Palestinian protesters had gathered about 4 p.m. Sunday outside an event that was called to show solidarity with Israel at Ateres Ayala, a banquet hall in Skokie, but were kept some distance away from the property by police.
Shortly after 5:30 p.m., a smaller group of protesters moved south across Touhy Avenue after seeing the man exit his sedan and chase a woman who appeared to take an Israeli flag off his car, according to nearby camera footage.
He was surrounded by protesters, according to a chaotic video of the incident provided to the Sun-Times by a witness, and then a gunshot could be heard on the video.
People scream and the crowd scatters, and the man can be seen holding the gun as someone screams, “Get him! Get him!”
Lincolnwood police confirmed the man fired a weapon into the air, and he was arrested at the scene.
