Pro-Israel terrorist group charged with hate crime after brutally beating Arabs, leftists at AIPAC protests
Members of an extreme right-wing, pro-Israel terrorist group have been charged with a hate crime after brutally attacking a 55-year-old Palestinian-American professor during peaceful protests on March 26 against the 2017 conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), in Washington, D.C.
Leftist activists were also attacked by the fascist group, the Jewish Defense League (JDL), which is recognized by the U.S. government as a right-wing terrorist organization. JDL leaders have been arrested for plans to bomb mosques and the offices of American politicians.
Canadian JDL head Meir Weinstein took credit for the anti-Arab and anti-leftist activity at AIPAC, in a video posted on Facebook.
While the U.S. government has passed numerous anti-Muslim policies, supposedly in the name of preventing attacks by Islamist extremists, far-right pro-Israel extremists from a recognized terrorist group are given free rein to operate within the country.
