It's Probably a Coincidence
"Jewish Student 'Punched' by Pro-Palestinian Student at Temple University" in Philadelphia, Paul Miller writes at Breitbart.com's Big Peace:
First reported by Franklin Center for Government & Integrity contributor Daniel Mael on Truthrevolt.org, Daniel Vessal was “punched in the face by a violent member of the anti-Israel organization SJP (Students for Justice in Palestine). “
Vessal claims he approached the SJP table to “see what angle they were coming from,” and began a dialogue. He told his fellow students working the booth, “You shouldn’t be protesting Israel; if anything, protest the terrorists.”
“This one girl sitting at the end of the table was just laughing and laughing at me,” Vessal explained, “and people at the table were calling me a ‘baby killer.’" He responded that when they were done laughing, “maybe we could have a genuinely peaceful conversation.”
He continued, “And then this kid just rocks me in the face as hard as he can. My glasses flew off. After a two-second blur I had no clue what had happened. I couldn’t believe this kid actually hit me.”
Eyewitnesses Josh Josephs and Alex Winokur told Mael:"Daniel went up to talk with them and have an educated conversation and try to rationalize their opinions,” said Josephs. “The conversation shortly escalated to the Palestine group being very arrogant and irrational. The people behind the table starting attacking Daniel, calling him a 'Zionist, racist, baby killer.'"
When Temple University security appeared on the scene, Vessal began explaining what occurred. According to multiple witnesses, the SJP students were shouting at him, “Zionist pig!” Witnesses also told Mael they heard the SJP students yelling “Kike” at Vessal as he lay on the ground.
Temple University, you say? Go figure:
Or as Roger L. Simon recently noted, "Welcome to the 1930s."
