Battle of the Antisemites: Pro-Hamas vs Black Hebrew Israelites
At an anti-Israel protest yesterday, pro-Hamas protesters got into a physical fight with Black Hebrew Israelites:
Wel all hell broke lose between some of the Palestinian protesters and the Black Israelites. Police and organizers did their best to calm things down to varying degrees of success. pic.twitter.com/VtgsrLGWgT— Tyler Pasciak LaRiviere (@TylerLaRiviere) October 28, 2023

Before you decide you are on team BHI, just remember they are also vehemently antisemitic, calling us “fake Jews” and accusing us of controlling the slave trade to rob them of their true identity as “G-d’s chosen people.” This has even, at times, led them to murder Jews.
So as far as I am concerned, they can beat each other to a pulp. The question, though, is why did this fracas occur?
There is some suggestion that the BHI had joined the protesters, but when the latter saw them carrying signs with the word “Hebrews,” they attacked them. Nice story, but the below video shows a BHI protester shouting out “That’s not your land” and “Gaza’s a parking lot”, which does not sound like the words of someone who was earlier that day on team Gaza:
At least 1 black Israelite is being loaded into an ambulance, but before he was looked at by CFD he got into a shouting match with some lingering protesters. pic.twitter.com/Onlte29VVC— Tyler Pasciak LaRiviere (@TylerLaRiviere) October 28, 2023
As journalist Angela Van Der Pluym wrote, I did not have this on my 2023 bingo card.
