On Monday night, anti-Israel activists chanted "Long live the Intifada," implicating the deaths of Jews outside a New York City exhibit about the atrocities committed by Palestinian terrorists at the Nova Music Festival on Oct. 7 where 364 people were slain and many more were kidnapped, assaulted, raped, and tortured. Four of those who were kidnapped we recovered in a daring rescue attempt by the IDF in Gaza where they were found to be held in civilian homes. 

Footage from Freedom News TV’s Oliya Scootercaster shot footage of the rally, which was organized by the violent antisemitic group Within Our Lifetime. Activists began the demonstration in Union Square by displaying a banner that read “Long live October 7.” The mob then blocked the Union Square subway station and vandalized trains before marching to the exhibit. 

Footage from Status Coup News showed activists waved flags associated with the Iran-backed Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah as well as Palestinian terrorists Hamas in front of the Nova Music Festival Exhibition on Wall Street in Manhattan. Counter protesters also chanted “USA!” in response to the anti-Israel activists.  

Some activists chanted “Long Live the Intifada” and “Israel go to hell” while facing off with police during a “citywide day of rage for Gaza.” 

During the Intifada in 2000, over 1,000 Israelis including Jews, Christians, and Muslims were killed by Palestinian terrorists. Intifada is a call to fight and kill Jews worldwide. A few blocks away from the exhibit, an Israel supporter was surrounded and threatened by the violent radicals. 

Anti-Israel activists also set off red and green smoke bombs, the colors of Hezbollah and Hamas. The NYPD told The New York Post that six people were issued summonses on Monday night, three for disorderly conduct and three for jumping turnstiles. 

Scott Braun, one of the organizers of the exhibit posted on Instagram in response to the rally, “I don’t understand why protesting a memorial for innocent music lovers who were raped and butchered and kidnapped helps. Go see the @novaexhibition and see the truth instead of standing outside listening to yourself.” 

In response to the protest, the Nova Exhibit announced it would remain open through June 22 even though it was supposed to close on Sunday. The exhibit opened in April to showcase the atrocities Palestinian terrorists committed on Oct. 7 in southern Israel.
