Pro-Israel US Marine Attacked By Pro-Hamas Mob Punched, Kicked, Spat On (at White House)
The Gateway Pundit ^ | Sunday, August 3, 2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 08/03/2014 1:16:15 PM PDT by kristinn

(Language warning for the video.) On Saturday August 2, 2014, a national march for Gaza took place in front of the White House.

A pro-Israeli counter-protester (U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran Manny Vega) was standing on 16th and H Streets with Israeli and American flags. Vega was approached by an Arab who began engaging in a very productive conversation with him. However, as more pro-Palestinian protesters marched by them, some engaged in violent acts against him. (This is where the video begins recording.) He was punched, pulled, kicked, and even spat on.

The mob was screaming “Allahu Akbar!” during the attack. The spat on him, kicked him and punched him in the face.

MUST SEE VIDEO>>>

More on the attack here.

Pro-Israel protesters were later evacuated from in front of the White House for their own safety.


TOPICS: Foreign Affairs; Front Page News; Israel; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: answer; gaza; hamas; holderspeople; israel; mannyvega; obamassons; occupywhitehouse
The screen grab here doesn't represent the assault as the victim, Manny Vega in the black ball cap and tan jacket, is momentarily out of the focus of the mob. This was just after he was grabbed by someone and he told the guy to back off.

The D.C. Chapter had many moments like this over the years when countering the ANSWER jihadis.

Good for the Marine for standing his ground against overwhelming numbers of the enemy.

During the Cold War we didn’t let avowed Communists immigrate to our country. Their world view was opposed to our constitution and our culture.

Now we receive enemies more uncivil and more fanatic than the average Communist, because their world view has a supernatural component, making it a religion.

And because the unofficial, but real, state religion of the United States is Anti-discrimination, so we must let in nearly anyone, without thought for our country or our children, be they Islamist, Communist, or Chinese Fascist.

Where were the cops? Should the muzzies who assaulted the soldier have been arrested? I recall that at the Murietta, CA standoff between the anti-amnesty folks and the pro-amnesty folks, the pro-amnesty woman threw a first punch or attached one of the anti-amenety folks,and was arrested.
Why weren’t these muzzies arrested?

Because these simple minded communists are being supported by King Obama and the police are part of this communists organization. American are threatened by the police as well as the terrorists.

Our country isn’t the same as it was in those days. We, the Constitutional Republicans, are the minority. But thank you for the good words, and Kristinn for the link to the video. I have just got news from relatives living in all parts of Israel. They have seen the Iron Dome in action overhead. They stop in the middle of sentences when they hear a possible missile incoming.
It is monstrous that the world attacks Israel for hitting civilians in Gaza, when the Arabs have been sending rockets and missles into the Israeli civilian population with impunity for years. I applaud Marine Vega for the courage and unwillingness to “do nothing” while the enemy enjoys the freedom Marine Vega swore an oath to defend.

Is there any doubt that in anyone’s mind that Obama is a terrorist enemy, groomed, bought, trained to undermine America from within from the highest seat of power. If this happened with GWB in the white house, that entire MOB of subhuman muslim terrorist baby raping scum would be arrested and charged. Even Clinton would have had the mob dispersed. I would have had them all waterboarded in pigs blood until they stopped breathing, then made sure they survived and were exiled to the worst parts of the MUSLIM world to tell the story. The border needs to be SECURED NOW, ANY MUSLIM I DON’T CARE WHO IT IS OR HOW GOOD THEY SEEM TO BE, need to be DEPORTED NOW. DEMAND IT. WHEN A MARINE CAN BE ASSAULTED IN FRONT OF THE WH BY A MUSLIM MOB OF TERRORIST SYMPATHIZERS, ITS TIME TO STOP PLAYING NICE. ITS OUR JOB TO STOP THIS. I’m sorry for the caps, my blood is boiling. If we continue letting things go as they are a day will come when these traitors can and will kill us all. We’ve tried playing nice, we have tried using common sense and logical solutions to real problems. America is going to turn into a third world cesspool doomed to become a bastion of hate and intolerance to anyone or anything righteous or decent in this world.

We can and should stop it.....NO we have a responsibility to every man and woman that gave us this once great land. Does no one understand this? I once wanted a family, but now it seems pointless if we let these people win. I see it every day, they resort to violence, blackmail and hate to win. We take the higher road. We have to defend ourselves. We’ve tried peacefully for long enough, we’re letting evil run rampant. It’s obvious to me that one day once they have totally and completely gotten their way they will kill us all. No doubt about it anymore. Not after this. My blood is boiling.

I dunno - what did he think was gonna happen in the middle of a perfectly cliched group of young terrorist wannabes? He’s lucky he only got spat on and kicked in the shins. Their hearts are black and their minds are gone, so there’s no changing either. I think maybe this time it’s a guy who would start a fight over a parking space vs. a bunch of no-account hooligans.

At my age, I never go out in public without my Knuckle Blaster stun gun. Although it's shaped like brass knuckles which are illegal, it is rubber coated and doesn't cause the injury brass knuckles do. Plus, since it wraps around your fingers, it's almost impossible to be taken from you. Push the safety up with your thumb and pull the trigger with your fore-finger and watch people step back from just igniting it. I've startle many people when demonstrating it.

Make sure you read the State restrictions on the site. Surprisingly, they are not illegal or restricted in California. Of course there's also pepper spray, but depending on the heat of the moment and wind, it can come around to you. Also, think hornet spray that shoots far, but in big bulky cans. The Knuckle Blaster easily fits in the pocket or purse.

Yes, I know the best defense is a handgun, but you probably don't want to use that in a simple scuffle.

Also, the Knuckle Blaster is small and comes in a holster with a loop for your belt. The holster has a velcro strap for easy access. If you prefer out of holster in pocket or purse, it's very easy to grab and the safety switch takes some pressure to dis-engage in case you have your finger on the button trigger.

I personally think this product could be used effectively and relatively quiet in a loud mob situation. There are other stun guns on the site, I prefer this one because of ease of use and being extremely difficult to wrestle away or knocked away from the owner. Of course, it you want distance, then think Tazer...but large and difficult to conceal.

After seeing this frightening, maddening video, I think we all need to pray harder. God save this nation, and God bless the brave Marine who stood up to - and was attacked by - these filthy Islamic pigs.

What are they doing in America anyway? Why don't they go back to their 7th century hellholes??

I loathe, detest and abhor Muzzies and any other persons that want to undermine America. My personal opinion is to deport all the ones who are here, refuse entrance to those to want to come here, and make life so miserable for the rest of them that they WANT to leave.

Until this Illegal pResident is out of office, this, sadly will be the state of things. He is killing this country with a cancer of the most insidious kind. GET RID OF HIM!

@Patton...

How would that work???

@itssme...

I have seen nothing in the news or any other report that says no one was taken into custody either...That does not mean it hasn’t happened though...

This entire situation has been simmering and coming to a slow boil for quite some time, and no one is in a position yet to do anything but take it on the chin at this point...

For our side to be in the right, which (ironically) we are, someone(s) are going to actually have to take it on the chin, be bloodied, and even die at the hands of our enemy first...That is an unfortunate truth...

Does that mean we give them an opportunity to take that live (lives)???

Personally, I think we have already met that criteria, but that fact is still left to be discovered by those giving the propaganda edge to our enemies...So we are not going to have a fair shake at this no matter what...

So, what is the solution??? We’all...That would be an excellent question...One that does not have an overall, comprehensive answer...It will be up to the individual to decide that for themselves, and you might not find good counsel with anyone, even close relatives, friends, neighbors, and others you might have common beliefs with...

One thing is for sure...We can be smarter than them, and not get caught up in large or even small groups of like minded people, or opposition to our side of the issue...Not like this situation...That had this outcome written in wet concrete, it was going to be a mess regardless of who it was to be determined to be in the right here...

Ask yourself this question...

Why was it the Law Enforcement showed up and the Pro Pali’s got kinda quiet when they (cops) rolled up???

And...

Did you see one cop go to anyone to start the interview with any of the Pali’s there??? I didn’t see it...I stand to be corrected if I missed that...

The Law went right to the catalyst of the scuffle...That’s right...Right to the Marine in question...

Was Sargent Vega wrong??? Not by the law, not by his rights as a citizen of this country, not at all...

But the other side didn’t see it that way, and they knew what they had to do the second he (Vega) was noticed...

The Law Enforcement knew this was likely to occur, they knew what to separate and diffuse the second they rolled up...

So everything running in the back of your mind is correct...The deck IS stacked against us in certain ways...

Overt confrontation, in single, or even small groups, will get this result almost every time...

I believe in the end our side, as a social, economic and politically conservative force should prevail...But the times now are a test of our patience, our resolve to correct, and to do things in the right way...

If you want to fight, I can dig it...Most people would be right there with you...

But really, we are NOT quite there yet...Close, but not quite...

Go back and remember what Yamamoto said after Pearl Harbor...that guy had it right, and his assessment was right dead on, and an honorable assessment...His country DID wake a sleeping giant...And after we whooped them, what happened???

They became one of our staunchest allies in the region...

The enemy we face today has no honor, scruples or virtue...The enemy is foreign AND domestic...And they are ready to pounce on us like a Thanksgiving turkey...

We need to pick our battles...

Just my opinion...

"The pipe and the bicycle chain would be used how. If it sounds like a dumb question, I apologize, but I am a woman, so I don’t have any knowledge of"

Not a dumb question because a chain or club or anything that needs training is not your best defensive weapon. Although I was trained with a PR24 club while Shore Patrol in Navy, I would rather have had a stun gun and/or pepper spray.

Again, Knuckle Buster in your pocket or purse. Check it out. Inexpensive and effective enough where you can stun and run!

The jihadists have peaked, and they know it. I have a pretty good idea why various alleged conservatives bay and moan about the continuous outbreaks of muzzie-on-muzzie civil wars, but no one in their right mind opposes it. No matter what else they do, in a muzzie civil war, everyone wins.

Object to the 14th consecutive century of atrocities, oppression, and murder of Christians in muzzie countries? Short of sending US troops to secure enclaves for Christian refugees to thrive in, and shedding our dearest blood in the process, there’s no solution.

Ideally the Christians would defend themselves with whatever arms give them enough firepower — but the only place that has ever happened is Lebanon, and they didn’t prevail. Many emigrated.
