Chilling moment Seattle student calls for the DESTRUCTION of Israel and ‘Zionist counter-protesters’ during pro-Palestinian march
Anti-Semitic students at the University of Washington gathered last week to protest Israel’s existence as the ongoing war between Israel and Palestinian terrorists intensifies.
One student leader at the protest, which was promoted by the group Students United for Palestinian Equality and Return, told the crowd that even in the face of pro-Israel counter-protesters, they should try to remain calm.
She told the students that while “we don’t want Israel to exist” and “we don’t want these Zionist counter-protesters to exist,” the group should focus on “de-escalating” tension between groups on campus with opposing values .
Instead, she said, “we can choose to focus on our demands.”
The group’s demands include wanting ‘UW to cut ties with gun companies. UW must condemn the attacks on Palestinian students,” and “UW must cut ties with Israel and end the siege of Gaza now.”
The protest comes as the Seattle-based college’s administration has not released a statement in support of its Jewish students since the early days of the conflict.
The University of Washington protest leader said: ‘We don’t want Israel to exist. We don’t want these Zionist counter-protesters to exist.”

The group Students United for Palestinian Equality and Return has previously expressed support for the Palestinian terrorist Hamas, which they call “Palestinian resistance fighters” and are conducting their “largest operation against the occupying forces since the last October war fifty years earlier.”
The week war broke out in the Middle East, following a barbaric terror attack on innocent Israelis that left more than a thousand dead on October 7, students from the University of Washington gathered to “elevate the righteous Palestinian resistance” and ” to condemn colonial settlers’. State of Israel.’
Flyers for the event featured a drawing of a paraglider similar to the one that militant Hamas terrorists used on October 7 to fly into southern Israel and slaughter dozens of innocent concertgoers.
A sign on the liberal campus read: “Defend Gaza, Intifada to victory.”
The university has not yet responded to the latest round of pro-Palestinian rallies, even though it was denounced by some online.
University of Washington President Ana Mari Cauce has previously condemned any celebration of violence against civilians
On October 9, the university released a statement about the war. That statement was a response to pro-Palestinian demonstrations, which President Ana Mari Cauce said were protected speech. She added that she condemned any celebration of violence against civilians.
The comments followed an earlier statement she released.
“We must not allow our opinions, sadness or anger about the conflict to spill over into abusive behavior or harassment of anyone – civility remains a core value of our academic community,” Cauce said in her statement.
“Any instance of intimidation, discrimination or violence based on anyone’s religion or nationality only hinders efforts to achieve peace in this region and beyond and will not be tolerated here.”
Rallies of hateful protesters supporting Hamas, the elimination of the Jewish state, and the elimination of Jews from the Jewish state have become commonplace in the US since the October 7 massacre, especially on college campuses.
On Saturday, thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters in Brooklyn shut down the Brooklyn Bridge while holding up signs that read: “Zionism is terrorism.”
The “Flood Brooklyn for Palestine” rally drew several thousand people, just one day after hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters closed Grand Central Station and called for a ceasefire.
The deadly terror attack on Israel was dubbed the ‘al-Aqsa flood’ by its perpetrators.
The planned march, which took place as Israel announced it had entered the second “phase” of its war against Hamas, began on Eastern Parkway on Saturday at 3 p.m.

Jewish people were warned earlier this week to avoid the area due to the ongoing protest
The crowd eventually gathered around the Brooklyn museum, which is located in Crown Heights, an area with a large Hasidic Jewish community with many businesses, schools and synagogues.
Jewish people were warned earlier this week to avoid the area due to the ongoing protest.
Citing a security source, COLlive.com reported: ‘Jews should definitely avoid the area.
The Big Apple, which has the world’s largest Jewish population outside Israel, has been a hotbed of protests since the conflict began earlier this month.
Last Thursday, thousands of pro-Palestinian demonstrators marched from Wall Street to City Hall to protest against American arms manufacturers and investment companies involved in the conflict.
Mayor Eric Adams said Thursday that 233 people have been arrested during the more than 100 protests and rallies held in the city. The immense protests have also been a constant cause of worse than normal traffic in the city.
