Videos posted on social media show a group of pro-Palestinian demonstrators in Los Angeles violently attacking a group of Jews who were eating at a restaurant on Tuesday night.

The incident occurred at Sushi Fumi on La Cienega Boulevard in West Hollywood, as a convoy of vehicles carrying men wearing keffiyehs and waving a large Palestinian flag passed by.

The occupants of the vehicles shouted hateful anti-Israel rhetoric, including “F**k the Jews,” shortly before items were thrown at the outdoor table where someone was recording the disturbance.

The pro-Palestinian supporters then got out of their vehicles and sought out Jews to physically assault.

One person was reportedly hospitalized.

Earlier in the day, pro-Palestinian groups held a protest outside the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles under the banner of “Resistance Until Liberation.”

Tuesday’s attack was just the latest incident in a sharp spike of antisemitism around the world since the outbreak of violence in Israel and the Gaza Strip.
