Pro-Palestine demonstrators rally outside AIPAC conference

Hundreds of Pro-Palestine demonstrators rallied in central Washington DC on Sunday, before marching to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference venue demanding a “Free Palestine!”

Several protesters faced off with counter protesters in heated exchanges, with one screaming at a counter protester who allegedly attempted to touch a Palestinian flag “you touch the flag over here in America, we are going to f* you up. This is America, not Israel.”

Members of the anti-Zionist Orthodox Jew group Neturei Karta were also seen among the protesters.

Yisroel Dovid Weiss, spokesman for a minority branch of Neturei Karta, said: “In fact ironically Zionism and state of Israel causes death of Jews and simultaneously exacerbates anti-Semitism. How ironic is that, that because of their occupation which is not Judaism we as Jews are being killed and murdered.”
