Pro-Hamas groups throughout the United States are now openly calling for an “intifada” in “every capital and city” around the world, including in Israel.

Intifada, meaning "uprising" or "rebellion" in Arabic, refers specifically to two Palestinian campaigns against Israel and its citizens.

An organization calling itself the Gaza Group issued a statement declaring: “Escalate protests to an open intifada in every capital and city in order to deprive the world of its heavy slumber that comes at the expense of the bodies and remains of those that survive; disrupt all facets of daily life until our people can breathe freely without the taint of the Israeli, American, and European war machine.”

The call for action was reportedly shared and distributed by the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Committee, Princeton’s Students for Justice in Palestine, Penn Students Against the Occupation and Writers Against the War on Gaza.

The Gaza Group also encouraged escalation across “historic Palestine, from every checkpoint and street corner to the face of every settler and soldier.”

“Raise the ceiling of the global solidary movement and immediately escalate all protest and pressure against Israel's accomplices in the genocide, whether it is those who offer it a political and diplomatic cover for the occupation or those who supply it with a steady stream of military and financial support, as well as those engaging in cynical maneuvers that prolong the suffering of our people in Gaza,” the anti-Israel statement continued.

Several other organizations joined the protest, with National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP) promising “a fire of revolution.”

“We will not allow for the slaughter of our people to continue without erupting a fire of revolution,” the activist group wrote on social media.

NSJP, which has local chapters spread across American college campuses, is a radical organization that released a “toolkit” immediately following the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack, in which it referred to the massacre as “the resistance” and stated: “Palestinian students in exile are PART of this movement, not in solidarity with this movement.”

NSJP, Answer Coalition, People's Forum, and Palestinian Youth Movement all called for members and supporters to participate in a protest outside the White House in the U.S. capital Washington, D.C. on June 8.

“Militancy grows from organization and mass movements, not influencers. This is the moment to mobilize & organize. Join the millions fighting to change the world and free Palestine! See you in DC,” the executive director of People's Forum, Manolo De Los Santos, stated.

Within Our Lifetime (WOL), a radical group that supports Hamas’ Oct. 7 massacre in Israel called for “autonomous action all day” in New York City.

The renewed calls for intifada and escalation come following the Israel Air Force's elimination of two Hamas senior leaders in Rafah on Sunday evening.

As a result of the airstrike, a fire broke out that resulted in the deaths of civilians in the area and has since caused international outrage.

The U.S. is currently assessing whether the strike was a violation of President Joe Biden’s “red line,” regarding Israel’s operation in the southern Gaza city of Rafah, two U.S. officials told the Axios news outlet

The strike on Rafah came after Hamas sent a barrage of rockets from Rafah into Israel that activated rocket sirens in Tel Aviv on Sunday afternoon.
