Pro-Israel student attacked in Boston by anti-Israel demonstrator
At Boston anti-Israel rally, protester says “we’ll claim back Jerusalem, Christians & Muslims and Jews will go to hell,Inshallah!”
Chloé Simone Valdary is an outspoken pro-Israel student who has organized pro-Israel events, made pro-Israel videos and written op-eds critical of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement.
On Friday, July 11, 2014, Chloé attended a pro-Israel counter rally in Boston near the Israeli Consulate. There were about 75 anti-Israel protesters, according to Chloé, and about 12 pro-Israel protesters.
As thevideo shows, Chloé was physically assaulted by a woman carrying a pro-BDS poster in what appears to be an unprovoked attack.
According to The Times of Israel, the anti-Israel protest was organized by Jewish Voice for Peace, a hideously anti-Israel group active in the BDS movement.
The attacker has not yet been identified.
Chloé informed me that she filed a complaint with the Boston Police Department in the Allston Precinct that day. Anyone with tips as to the identity of the woman can call theBoston Police at 1 (800) 494-TIPS or text TIP to CRIME (27463).
Chloé provided the following additional statement:
There were about 11 of us and 75 of them. I don’t think she knew who I was, she was nasty to everyone. It was a disgusting experience but I can’t say I am surprised.
We have always known that the anti-Israel crowd is filled with Jew haters and Arab supremacists who preach a steady dose of racism. But they cannot stop us and they cannot silence us. We will continue to march forward and promote justice and Zionism.
