(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) Individuals voicing support for Palestinians took to the White House to protest the U.S. support for Israel as the Jewish country defends itself against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.  

Video footage recorded by the Daily Caller depicts several protestors chanting “Allahu Akbar” (Arabic translation for God is great), while pushing the White House fence, as Secret Service agents guarded the premises. The protestors proceeded to chant “Raise your hand! Make a First! Palestine will resist.”

 

Other footage showcased a massive wave of protests filling the streets of Washington, D.C. Critics took to Twitter to condemn the protests. “100,000 strong turned out for the National Protest for Palestine,” said journalist Kyle Becker in a tweet accompanied by footage of the protest. “Now, many have surrounded the White House. They are chanting ‘F*** Joe Biden’ and issuing demands. This is why you don’t import your enemies.”

Human Events podcaster Jack Posobiec chimed in, saying, “The Palestinian protests are attacking the White House now. This is a direct attack on our democracy.”

 

As reported by Fox, the Secret Service admitted that it arrested no individuals from the protest, even though video footage shows some of them defacing the White House fence. In downtown D.C., individuals wrapped Palestinian flags around a Benjamin Franklin statue and General Marquis de Lafayette.

On the other hand, D.C. police arrested on Saturday night an individual, among the thousands that took part in the protests. 

“During the event, several minor incidents of property damage and vandalism were reported to police. One adult male was arrested for Destruction of Property in the 700 block of 17th Street, Northwest,” the Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement. “In addition, MPD is currently investigating acts of vandalism that damaged the McPherson Square Metro Station and several police vehicles.” 

Acting Chief Pamela A. Smith reacted to the protests, claiming the police department supported indiviuals’ right to freedom of speech.

“The Metropolitan Police Department handles hundreds of protests, demonstrations, and other events every year, and we support and facilitate people safely and peacefully exercising their First Amendment right to protest,” she said.
