After two months of holding their antisemitic pro-Hamas protests, the anti-Israel lobby is not letting up. On Sunday, left-wing activists showed up at the home of Rep. Shri Thanedar (D-MI) at 3 a.m. to protest his support of Israel as the war in Gaza rages on…..CONTINUE READING HERE
The protesters shouted slogans and blared their car horns, condemning the lawmaker for not speaking out in favor of the Palestinians.
A group of anti-Israel protesters descended on the home of Rep. Shri Thanedar, D-Mich., over the weekend blowing car horns and screaming as they sought to punish him for what they claimed was his “silence” on the deaths of Palestinians in Gaza amid Israel’s war with Hamas.
“This is my home at 3 AM,” Thanedar wrote in a post on X, including a video that showed cars lined in the street outside his home, an individual waving a cloth-like material, and others screaming through megaphones. The video appeared to be posted by a supporter of the protesters.
“You are complicit in the bombing of Gaza… Your silence is violence. Your silence is abhorrent, and we will not let you sleep!” one protester can be heard screaming.
Detroit constituents of Rep Shri Thanedar visited his house in the middle of the night to get him to #WakeTheFUp about the ongoing genocide in Palestine that he’s supporting. If Gaza’s children can’t sleep from the US-supplied bombs Israel is dropping and babies are being blown… pic.twitter.com/8kp4lsnkL7

Leftist agitators have been engaging in this behavior since the war began on October 7. Last month, pro-Hamas protesters showed up at the home of Michael Tuchin, President of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Thanksgiving. They fired off smoke grenades and poured fake blood on his property.

Harassing people at their homes appears to be a favorite pastime of these individuals. They are becoming even more brazen in their protests, which they seem to believe will intimidate leaders into supporting their cause. They seem to have no problem with crossing the line between public and private, which raises serious questions about how far these people might go to express their views on the Israel-Hamas conflict.
So far, the anti-Israel activists have not engaged in physical violence at the homes of their targets. But in other instances, they have shown no qualms about physically assaulting those who support Israel. On college campuses, they have even threatened Jewish students and faculty.
The incident at Rep. Thanedar’s home reveals the ongoing tension caused by the war in Gaza. It has raised concerns about a potential escalation in violence in the United States – especially when high-profile individuals are being targeted. How long will it be before one of these people decides to physically assault a member of Congress or leader of an organization like AIPAC? At this point, there is no way to tell…..CONTINUE READING HERE
