We’ve seen this scenario play out time and time again, whenever Israel conducts military operations to stop Hamas’ terror attacks the left goes ballistic.
ROME (JTA) — Protesters chanted anti-Semitic and pro-Palestinian slogans outside the main Rome synagogue during mass student protests that turned violent.
Rome Jewish community President Riccardo Pacifici said that some of the demonstrators waved Palestinian flags while hooting and shouting anti-Jewish slogans outside the Great Synagogue of Rome.
“It has been 30 years since a demonstration passed in front of the synagogue,” Pacifici said. “Who authorized it?”
The newspaper La Repubblica reported that during clashes outside the synagogue with police, some demonstrators hurled stone vases that were standing in front of the building.
The synagogue has been closely guarded, with police cars sitting on the street outside, since a Palestinian terror attack in 1982 that killed a toddler and left scores injured. Dozens of police were stationed outside the synagogue during Wednesday’s demonstrations.
