We Asked People At A Pro-Palestinian Protest To Condemn Hamas Violence. Then Things Got Aggressive.

The Daily Caller’s “Man vs. Street” team went to the pro-Palestine protest in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday to see whether anyone there was willing to condemn the Hamas terrorist attack that killed and wounded thousands of Israeli civilians.

Hamas gunmen engaged in a systematic slaughter on Oct. 7, killing over 1,400 Israelis and dragging some 200 back to Gaza as hostages. The group’s actions also included rape, the mutilation of corpses and the murder of infants and toddlers.

It’s not hard for any God-fearing person to see these actions as horrendous. Unless, it seems, you were at the pro-Palestine rally in D.C. “You want me to condemn Hamas? I can’t do that,” one man told host Joel Gibbons. “I approve of anyone who fight for their freedom,” another said.

Some people at the rally then started to block Gibbons and became pretty confrontational. (RELATED: George Soros Defended Hamas In Horrendous 2007 Article)

When asked about the recent violence of violence, one protestor asked sarcastically if Gibbons was referring to “the Israelis’ savage attacks on Gaza, where they’re literally bombing thousands of babies, and the Hamas fighters are underground and not being touched.”

The protestor then asked Gibbons to condemn violence. He did it without blinking, so the protestor started to walk away before trying to block the camera once again.
