On Friday, November 17, we witnessed pro-Hamas UNC students gathering at the Wilson Library, chanting slogans and waving signs condemning Israel for defending itself in a war started in a barbaric, surprise assault by Hamas that included beheading children, gang rapes, burning people alive, and taking hostages ranging in age from infants to elders.
In a move that was disturbingly reminiscent of Hitler Youth Nazi marches from the 1930’s, the pro-Hamas mob (ordered to wear masks by their leaders) then marched to the South Building while chanting “Intifada, Intifada,” which is a call to attack and kill Jews.
They then blocked the staff of the South Building from doing their jobs for several hours, and bragged about it on social media afterwards.
