Anti-Israel protesters block AIPAC conference

Hundreds of far left, Muslim extremist and Naturei Karta protesters held a vocal anti-Israel demonstration on Sunday outside the AIPAC conference.

The protesters tried to block the entrance before moving on, and succeeded in blocking one entrance completely. Participants in the conference were advised to wait inside the building for their own safety, out of concerns that the aggressive protesters might turn violent.

While the protesters have so far not used violence, they were very boisterous in chanting hate slogans and calling to close down AIPAC.

From their calls it became clear they were angry that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was coming, equating AIPAC with him even though other candidates are to put in an appearance as well, and even though several Jewish groups plan to boycott his speech.

At one point a group of protesters noticed the kippah on the head of one of the Arutz Sheva reporters covering the event, and began shouting anti-Israel and anti-Jewish slogans at him.

More protesters have turned out to demonstrate against the conference this year in previous years, as it appears the anti-Trump crowd has been brought in as well.

Many of the signs of the protesters featured a link to the anti-Israel group Al-Awda: The Palestinian Right to Return Coalition.
