University of Michigan demonstration calls for ‘Intifada’, Israel’s demise stuns the Internet: ‘A call to kill Jews’

Social media users were shocked and outraged by an anti-Israel demonstration organized by pro-Palestinian demonstrators at the University of Michigan this week.

The protest clips depicted protesters chanting “Intifada, intifada! Long live the intifada”, a call for the violent overthrow of the Jewish state inspired by Palestinian riots and revolts against Israel in the late 1980s, early 1990s, and early 2000s.

“There is only one solution!” One of the marchers was seen chanting as the crowd behind her responded: “Intifada! Revolution!”

The demonstrators, who were seen roaming the Ann Arbor campus shouting into megaphones and waving Palestinian flags, were also heard chanting the infamous anti-Israel call to arms: “From the river to the sea, Palestine shall be free!”

The media reported that the anti-Semitic rally was held to protest Vice President Kamala Harris’ Thursday visit to the campus, where she gave a speech on climate policy, and student activism. The demonstrators appeared to stand against the US government’s support for the State of Israel.

Another video depicts protesters outside the campus building where Harris was giving her speech, saying, “No more nickel, no more cent, no more money for Israel’s crimes.”

The stark call for Israel’s overthrow upset prominent Twitter users, who were shocked that such sentiments were so freely expressed on major American college campuses.

Jewish newspaper columnist Blake Flyton tweeted, “At the University of Michigan, a call to kill Jews.”

Rep. Jared Moskovitz, R-Fla., spoke about the horrific nature of the rally, tweeting: “Hitler’s use of the word ‘solution’ is meant here. Israel has a right to exist. We will never give that up. The Jewish people have a right to exist. Right to exist. We will ensure.” .

Free Beacon reporter Joe Gabriel Simonson mocked the protesters, tweeting: “The loser activists think this is an uprising.”

Elijah Shapiro of the Manhattan Institute put together a sarcastic comment about the protest, saying, “It’s because UMich only spends $18 million a year on DEI.”

Former Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. National Security Adviser Boris Rifkin condemned the rally, writing, “Terrifying. Echoes of what happened in Charlottesville, except for violent anti-Semites cut from a different cloth. I expect major media to deliver this is wall-to-wall saturated coverage.” The wall I submitted to this event with the condemnation of WH and the Democratic leaders and band members.”

Media reporter Isaac Shore remarked, “Not making the best case for your ability to handle your country, kids.”

Popular conservative account AG tweeted, “I don’t think most people really understand the level of hatred and hostility to Jewish students on many of the major liberal universities because school administrations tend to support/enable these things.”
