Anti-Israel protesters appear to be aiming to engage in actions that irritate the American public.
Few things can anger Americans as much as a protest that blocks a main road or highway. Last week, the anti-Israel group blocked the 110 Freeway in Los Angeles. The crew trapped two school buses with children for over an hour. Not to mention the hundreds of drivers. Some motorists confronted these characters physically; one driver grabbed one and dumped it in the street. Also, they blocked an expressway near Philadelphia. They were arrested and zip-tied. On Friday, the two even attempted to block the Los Angeles International Airport. They caused traffic chaos and made people miss their flights on one of the busiest weekends for travel. They didn’t give a damn about the people they injured.
They have to try to outdo themselves. They’ve been at Christmas tree lightings before, and that is awful enough. They also hit the Bayshore Mall, Ottawa on Saturday at a time that was guaranteed to have a large number of shoppers. The kids were visiting Santa Claus and they wanted to disturb them. In a video posted on X you can hear them screaming and banging the drums while shouting “f**king Bombs are Dropping” in front of children, as well as “While your shopping, bombs will be dropping.”
Social media footage of the screaming chants, and drumming can be heard.
One protester shouted at a parent who was trying to calm the crowd down, “If your children are scared imagine what the Palestinian kids feel.”
Santa Claus is seen at one point looking almost as shocked as a child who has just been placed in his lap, while the protesters shout the current falsehood “Jesus was Palestinian.”
In this video, you can hear the chant “Jesus is Palestinian” as they attack a Santa who has two babies on his shoulders. Santa helped the family take their photos despite all the noise. Jesus wasn’t Palestinian. Jesus was a Jew. They don’t like to hear this because it will upset their worldview. He was not even aware that “Palestine”, as it is now known, existed.
They don’t care or respect the traditions of families and children. They want to disturb them.
These people chant about bombs falling, while their brethren speak about a global intifada, “revolution,” or “resistance,” which is justified against an “occupation” (there’s no occupation). Others even claim “by any means.” What makes any of this “peaceful”?
What they mean is that Israel should lay down its arms, stop fighting terrorists, and allow itself to be invaded and destroyed. They won’t get what they want and terrorizing children and their parents in a shopping mall will only make people hate them. It’s utterly pointless to act in this way, as no one can give them the things they want.
Santa won’t give them Israel and certainly not after being put on the “naughty” list.
