Excerpt of NBC Los Angeles report:

Several men were detained at a pro-Israel peace rally in front of the Federal Building in Westwood Sunday after pro-Palestinian protesters also turned up and the two sides clashed.

Witnesses said there was a scuffle between several men draped in Palestinian flags and pro-Israel protesters.

As several of the men tried to leave the scene, at least one gunshot was fired at the truck by a Department of Homeland Security agent, police confirmed to NBC4.

Apparently the Mexico invasion was not getting the desired results. Now he sends in Hamas to American cities.

More details from the Jewish Journal:

A peaceful pro-Israel rally in front of the Federal Building in Westwood in West Los Angeles was interrupted late Sunday afternoon when three or four men wielding Palestinian flags arrived carrying long wooden sticks and alledgely attacked the pro-Israel demonstrators. The Los Angeles Police Department reported that more than 1,200 attended the rally.

Witnesses said several of the pro-Israel participants were hit by the sticks, but police would not immediately confirm or comment on whether anyone was wounded. A separate counter protest of about 200 supporting the Palestinians was held across the street.

When police who were already on the scene stepped in to break up the scuffle, the attackers returned to their pickup truck and drove off. As they left, witnesses say, a gun was fired in the direction of the truck by a Department of Homeland Security officer who was at the scene, according to Brian Thomas of the LAPD West Los Angeles Patrol Division.

There were four people riding in the truck, all Palestinians living in Anaheim, according to one of them, Hany Rafai, who said he got out of the truck before the police stopped it. Rafai denied that they were hitting the pro-Israelis. Rafai lives in both Jordan and Orange County.

Well, our government has also flooded our country with a whole lot of Muslims and many other voodoo worshiping types...

This was pretty much expected.

My friend was there..these Palestinian scumbags were waving their flags into the faces of pro Israel people who were at the rally..they were shoving them in their faces through the window of their car..of course the local media here tried to make excuses for the Arabs portraying them as victims of the police and the pro Israel people

I live in the desert. Very few Muzzies in these parts. They stick to cities. I wonder why that is. Oh well. Coincidence I’m sure. We cactus rednecks are a welcoming bunch.

Jeeze, since the early middle ages the whole world has had nothing but trouble from Arabs and islam in general. You’d think we could have learned by now to keep them the hell away from civilized society.

Just goes to show how stupid the ragheads really are.
Raghead terrorists showing up at a pro Israel rally in WESTWOOD, is about as intelligent as a KKK member in full regalia showing up at a Black Panther meeting.

“Raghead terrorists showing up at a pro Israel rally in WESTWOOD,”

Yup. There’s a reason why it’s called the Persian highway, as most of the Iranian jews (I know of) live there, if not the Encino area. Then again, I hate driving to that area. It’s sickening enough I have to drive in a place like Santa Monica and see fags all over the place..

I think it’s just that they are repulsed by our barbaric cultural norms (said Norm). Like not confusing women with livestock. We stubbornly insist on sex with women and cows for nutrition instead of the obviously more civilized people who believe the opposite.

We’re backward like that. Probably a quirk of our isolation.
