Pro-Hamas thugs took to the streets of Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Sunday as they attempted to disrupt a pro-Israel rally in the city.
Over the weekend, Hamas militants launched a horrific attack on Israel, catching the country by surprise during a Jewish holiday.
The major attack has already cost hundreds of lives as dozens of fighters infiltrated Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip.
Footage later emerged showing women being marched into vehicles, with some dead in the back of pickup trucks.
The death toll from the Hamas terror attack soared to 700, with at least 2,000 injured.
In Florida, a pro-Israel group of 100 people took to the streets to show support.
Later on, police were called in to break up the chaos as pro-Hamas activists turned up to the event.
NBC Miami reported:
Dozens gathered for a Defend Israel Emergency Rally along East Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale as they stood in solidarity for the Jewish Community and Israel.
“I think that if you have any love for democracy, if you love freedom, if you love the ability to do whatever you want on a day to day basis, it doesn’t matter if you’re Jewish or Israeli,” said Israeli-American protester Tal Levinson.
“If you’re that type of person, you’ve got to come out and support this cause.”
Todd Starnes reported:
Several pro-Hamas thugs tried to disrupt a massive pro-Israel in downtown Fort Lauderdale today.
It did not end well for the thugs. Police were summoned to break up the street fight. The Hamas sympathizer shouted, “We have already won.”
There have been massive pro-Hamas rallies and marches in cities nationwide today. But in Florida, the pro-Israel crowd was out in force.
Police officers arrived to break up the fight:
There are about 100 pro-Israel people protesting against the 2-3 people protesting in favor of Palestine. More police officers have arrived. Things are getting heated to say the least.— Omar Rodríguez Ortiz (@Omar_fromPR) October 8, 2023
Earlier, Trump condemned the Hamas attacks, suggesting Iran’s likely involvement in the attacks during another statement over the weekend.
“These Hamas attacks are a disgrace, and Israel has every right to defend itself with overwhelming force,” Trump wrote in a press release.
“Sadly, American taxpayer dollars helped fund these attacks, which many reports are saying came from the Biden Administration,” the statement continued.
“We brought so much peace to the Middle East through the Abraham Accords, only to see Biden whittle it away at a far more rapid pace than anyone thought possible.”
Over 600 Israeli civilians and military personnel have lost their lives, while over 100 civilians, including many children and elderly, have been kidnapped and transported to the Gaza Strip.
