Left-Wing Group Calls For Anti-Israel Riots

A left-wing political group called for anti-Israel protesters to launch a series of riots similar to those that swept the country following the death of George Floyd in 2020. The news came as tensions on college campuses grew to their highest levels as police cleared out encampments of the pro-Palestinian protesters and the White House condemned increasing antisemitism.

The left-wing group The People’s Forum called on protesters to begin rioting. The organization hosted a meeting in Manhattan last week in which one speaker said that the protesters should give President Joe Biden “a hot summer.”

The speaker also called on the demonstrators to “make it untenable for the politics of usual to take place in this country.”

The same speaker also compared the proposed actions to the “summer of 2020” in which multiple cities across the country saw violent riots.

The radical group has ties to the Chinese Communist Party and has been involved in a number of left-wing causes.

The news came after weeks of clashes on college campuses. At Columbia University police cleared out an academic building occupied by students, resulting in dozens of arrests.

Furthermore, the college has been the epicenter of many of the anti-Israel protests happening on college campuses across the United States. Another academic building was occupied by students, which required another police response and more than 100 arrests, including that of the daughter of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Students at Columbia then responded by creating a tent city in one of the major squares on campus. The college was forced to hold its classes remotely as a result. Other protesters created the tent encampments on their campuses, as well.

The tenor of the protests has become sharper in recent weeks, including some signs and speakers appearing to praise the Oct. 7 Hamas terrorist attack that killed about 1,200 people. In addition, at least one student was photographed carrying the flag of the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah.

Over the weekend a group of protesters interrupted a graduation ceremony at a Michigan campus, sparking boos.
