Anti-Israel protesters at Yale University tore down an American flag on Friday night as they occupied the campus in what Jewish students have called an act of intimidation against them and against the university.

The video circulated on social media on Saturday and Sunday, with kaffiyeh-clad activists whooping and cheering as they tore down the Stars and Stripes.

Many anti-Israel protesters also hold anti-American views, and have also targeted Christian symbols.

The Yale Daily News reported:

On Saturday night, more than 500 protesters gathered in Beinecke Plaza, and at 12:18 a.m., protesters announced that no arrests would be made that night.

There were also pro-Israel counter-protesters present from around 11:32 p.m. to around 12:50 a.m. time, largely remaining on Beinecke Plaza in front of Woodbridge Hall. At peak, about 25 counter-protesters were present.

An organizer of the encampment, who requested anonymity due to safety concerns,  told the News that the group will be staying on Beinecke Plaza overnight and reiterated that they would continue their encampment on the Plaza until Yale meets their demands for disclosure and divestment [from Israel].

The Jerusalem Post reported that a Jewish student had been jabbed in the eye with a flagpole and that the Yale protesters were holding signs honoring a dead Palestinian terrorist who had kidnapped and murdered an Israeli.

Anti-Israel protesters at Columbia University, another Ivy League school, have also occupied campus illegally. According to video captured by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the Columbia demonstrators have shouted pro-terror slogans.

Other demonstrations for “ceasefire” have also advocated terror against Israelis.

A march in Ottawa, Canada, featured protesters hailing the October 7 terror attack that killed 1,200 innocent Israelis.
