Los Angeles witnessed a tragic incident on Monday when a 65-year-old Jewish man, Paul Kessler, died from injuries sustained during an altercation at a pro-Palestinian protest on Sunday, the Los Angeles Scoop is reporting.
Sources tell YWN that Kessler was waving an Iaraeli flag near a demonstration on Westlake Blvd In Ventura County, when an individual participating in the pro-Palestinian protest allegedly struck him in the face with a megaphone. The force of the blow caused him to fall to the ground, resulting in a severe head injury.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing the victim lying in a pool of blood, while a woman carrying a sign that read “free Palestine” attempted to provide assistance. The man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
Sadly, Mr. Kessler was Niftar on Monday due to the injuries he had suffered. Misaskim Los Angeles was working on Kavod Hames.
In response to the incident, the Ventura Sheriff’s Department swiftly arrived at the scene and began interviewing eyewitnesses. However, as of now, no arrests have been made in connection with the assault.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office on Monday issued a statement saying: “Paul Kessler, 69, died as a result of injuries sustained during an altercation at a Pro-Israeli / Pro-Palestinian event, both of which were occurring simultaneously at the intersection of Westlake Blvd. and Thousand Oaks Blvd.”

Paul Kessler was killed in Los Angeles because he was a Jew.
It is not because of Gaza, it is because of antisemitism.
This is what happens when protesters glorify Hamas and call to “globalize the intifada.”
