Israel-Haters Beat Up Suspected “Zionists” At Asheville Public Library

Far-right antisemites: We will use violence against Jews.

Far-left antisemites: Hold my beer tiki torch.

A cancer-stricken elderly man and two others were allegedly beaten by an angry anti-Israel mob after they started livestreaming an “anarchist bookfair” event at a North Carolina library.

Monica Buckley, David Moritz and Bob Campbell claim they were physically attacked by roughly two dozen people after sitting in on a “Strategic Lessons from the Palestinian Resistance” seminar at the West Asheville Public Library in Asheville on Saturday, WPDE reported.

The trio allege the crowd suddenly turned on them when an attendee noticed the talk — organized by the “Another Carolina Anarchist Bookfair” — was being filmed and streamed on social media.

Footage posted online shows the moment those in the audience started surrounding the group in an apparent bid to block them from filming after someone accused them of being “Zionists.”

“I was just sitting there recording the people who were surrounding us, and a woman grabbed the phone and started running towards the door. I jumped on her to get my phone back,” Buckley, who is Jewish, alleged.

“There was a swarm of dozens of people that attacked me — and then and Bob and David came to try to help me — and then they were swarmed and attacked also,” she continued.

“They were hitting me, punching me, punching my wrists, stomping on my ankles. Somebody choked me with something.”

Campbell, an 80-year-old Navy veteran who has cancer, said someone pushed him to the floor when he tried to step in.

“I went behind her and then he grabbed me from the back and pushed me down on the floor so that’s when I told him, I said, ‘You know I got cancer and I’m 80, you don’t have to do much, but he wouldn’t stop’,” he said.

Moritz, who is also Jewish, recalled kicking some people as he was allegedly being pummeled.

“Bob and I both got up to defend her, but it was just such a mob of people, they just started punching me,” he said. “I had bruises on my head, I was fighting back, I kicked some people.”

The trio insisted they only attended the event to learn what was being taught in their community — and not to “provoke anything.”

Buckley claims she opted to film the event because she feared for her safety.

“I just thought it would be safer to livestream what was happening,” she said.

Remember, this was a Strategic Lessons from the Palestinian Resistance seminar, so perhaps they took as a lesson from “Palestinian Resistance” (aka terrorism) that violence works (at least it seems to when viewing the increase in the amount of people sympathizing with the so-called “palestinian cause” AFTER October 7th).

Just your almost daily reminder that those who support this sh*tty, morally bankrupt cause tend to be sh*tty, morally bankrupt people.
