In a demonstration outside the White House in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, anti-Israel protesters called for violent 'jihad' against Israel and expressed explicit support for the Islamist terrorist organizations Hezbollah and Hamas.

Several protesters, with their faces covered by keffiyehs, held a banner that read “JIHAD OF VICTORY OR MARTYRDOM.” They were seen carrying the banner while walking toward the White House and chanted: “Al-Qassam, make us proud! Kill another soldier now! Hezbollah, Hezbollah! Kill another Zionist now!”

“Al-Qassam Brigades” is the military wing of Hamas, the terror group responsible for the invasion and murderous attack on southern Israeli communities on Oct. 7.

Another protester held a sign that read “F*** ISRAEL STAND WITH HAMAS.”

“The only path forward against Israel’s genocide is armed resistance,” he said. “And that’s what Hamas is doing.”

 The protester went on to explicitly praise the Hamas attack last October.

“October 7th was a brilliant break into Israel, to resist and overthrow the oppression,” he said. “I’m standing with Hamas to overthrow the f****** genocide that Israel has been doing for 75 years.”

According to The Times of Israel, thousands of protesters attended the demonstration, calling for U.S. President Joe Biden to end his support for Israel and chanting “from DC to Palestine, we are the red line.”

The chants were allegedly in response to White House comments in May regarding an IDF military operation targeting Hamas terrorists in Gaza that reportedly led to the deaths of dozens of civilians.

White House National Security Council spokesman, John Kirby, said, “We don’t want to see a major ground operation in Rafah,” while affirming, “We haven’t seen that at this point.”

The White House has said neither the attack in late May nor the current scale of the IDF’s military actions in Rafah warrant a withdrawal of U.S. support for Israel during the war.
