ANOTHER antisemitic attack on Jews in LA – an Orthodox Jewish man was chased by two cars waving Palestinian flags as he was leaving synagogue last night! pic.twitter.com/GtJDo6k5n5— StopAntisemitism.org (@StopAntisemites) May 19, 2021
The incident follows the release of video footage featuring Arabs violently attacking Jews at a restaurant in Los Angeles. According to Arutz Sheva, the violent attack took place on La Cienega and Beverly, known as a heavily Jewish area of the city. One victim is reported to be hospitalized.
The Palestinian group was yelling anti-Semitic remarks at the Jewish diners who were outside a sushi restaurant. Video of the chaotic scene shows several men punching another man on the sidewalk while bystanders shout in horror at the attackers. Times of Israel reports that “dozens of people waving Palestinian flags badly beat diners after asking ‘who is Jewish.'”
According to CBSLA, cell phone video showed a group of men getting out of a car and attacking the diners while yelling racial slurs.
One of the diners, who is not Jewish, told CBSLA that a caravan of men waving pro-Palestinian flags began throwing bottles at him and the group he was dining with. The man said he is a photographer and the group was meeting at the restaurant to plan a wedding.
The man was physically attacked when he tried to defend the group. The attackers screamed anti-Jewish slurs. He was pepper-sprayed during the attack and had to go to a hospital.
Police are also investigating claims that groups of people on foot waving Palestinian flags and shouting “free Palestine” are approaching homes with Mezuzahs hung on their doorposts.

The glass door of the Jewish-owned Orange Delite & Grill, a kosher cafe in the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles, was reportedly smashed last night by antisemites.
“These were anti-Semitic hate crimes that are unconscionable,” said Councilman Paul Korez in a statement released late Wednesday morning. Police are investigating the incidents as a possible hate crimes.
Israel Under Attack
As reported previously at RAIR, this latest attack stems from Palestinians illegally occupying homes in Sheikh Jarrah, Israel, for decades and refusing to pay rent to private Israeli landlords. The courts recently ruled in favor of the Israeli landlords’ rights to be paid after a decades-long legal battle.
Islamic terrorist group Hamas responded by calling for war and launching hundreds of rockets from Gaza. The deadly rocket attacks have been continuous for days and are still being launched as of this publication.
Hamas’ charter, which calls to kill all Jews, makes it no surprise that Hamas is trying to kill as many innocent Israelis as possible. Meanwhile, left-wing leaders and media worldwide condemn Israel for defending their citizens by launching targeted attacks against the Hamas terrorists and their weapons caches.
Further, many of the rockets being launched by Hamas are falling short of their target (Israel), resulting in injury and death to Palestinians. Those injuries to civilians are being blamed on Israel.
