TERROR IN LOS ANGELES: Jewish Man Murdered In Vicious Assault At Palestinian Protest

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.”

“On November 5, 2023, at approximately 3:20 PM, multiple citizens called the Ventura County Sheriff’s Communication Center to report a battery had occurred at the intersection of Westlake Boulevard and Thousand Oaks Boulevard in the City of Thousand Oaks. The intersection was the location of a Pro-Israeli / Pro-Palestinian demonstration.

“Upon arrival, responding deputies located Kessler, who was suffering from a head injury. Witness accounts indicated that Kessler was involved in a physical altercation with counter-protestor(s). During the altercation, Kessler fell backwards and struck his head on the ground. Kessler was transported to an area hospital for advanced medical treatment. On November 6, 2023, Kessler succumbed to his injuries.

“An autopsy was performed on November 6, and the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office determined the cause of death to be blunt force head injury and the manner of death homicide.

“The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office is requesting assistance from the public regarding this ongoing investigation. Anyone who witnessed or has knowledge of the incident, or who was present at the demonstration is encouraged to contact Detective Stump at (805) 384-4745.”

  1. “However, as of now, no arrests have been made in connection with the assault.

    Efforts to contact the Sheriff Department for further details have, thus far, remained unanswered.”

    Thank you Governor Gavin Newsom for your equivocation.
    If the roles were reversed, a Jew murdering a Palestinian sympathizer, every law enforcement would be immediately involved and they would have the suspect within the hour. Ditto for Jan 6th.

  2. cmon why in the world did he look where he was going he shouldn’t have been walking there in the first place at all and besides why was he walking alone and not with a attendant at his age the way things like the hate crimes are happening every day around the world not only in america one day it’s america next it’s a different country around the world u know are u so blind or ur burying ur head in the sand or just plain dumb enough 2 see what’s going on around u anymore just wake up from ur sleep already and see the writing written on the wall in black and white already let’s hope that moshiach will come already and the beis hamikdash rebuilt already why do i have 2 repeat myself at least 1000 times 2 u till u finally get the message

  3. It’s very easy task, FBI should confiscate few phones and check for videos and photos, then they’ll catch the terrorist.

  4. So many tragedies back to back. We can’t even breathe in between.
    I have listened too many Shiurim or we can call them Chizuk speeches during the past several weeks since Simchas Torah. I listened to Israeli speakers, American speakers, Chasidishe Rabbonim, Litvishe Rabbonim and the list goes on (Sfardim & Ashkenazim). I really listened a lot to all types of Rabbonim. I truly respect all of them.
    The message is pretty similar- Hashem wants more Achdus amongst us- Hashem wants us to daven very hard these days and if possible to try to cry to Hashem for help. Some of the Rabbonim said that we need to try to imagine that one of the captives could have been our close relative or our close friend. Let us stop for a moment and think about it that right now there are about 200 (the numbers hit close to 243) in captivity and some of them are young children.
    I am adding my own thing now:
    Nowadays when we go to a Simcha here in America, since we are far away from Eretz Yisroel, we can possibly forget what is going on there and we can start drinking booze, liquor -eating all kinds of delicacies, ice cream, chocolate, halva, cookies, cake, all the fancy stuff in those little glass cups and the list goes on and on-after eating 5 pounds of sugar, it is very difficult to cry to Hashem about the situation in Eretz Yisroel. I think that Hashem is watching us very closely to see what are we going to do now to try to help to improve the situation in Eretz Yisroel. I am also talking to myself.
    I am not here right now to try to give you Mussar-Chas VeChalila-I am not giving you Mussar-meaning that I am better than you.
    שלא אחד בלבד עמד עלינו לכלותינו
    I read in a Sefer a nice Vort
    שלא אחד בלבד
    because we are not one
    עמד עלינו לכלותינו
    That is what is killing us.
    Again I repeat-I am also talking to myself.

  5. “However, as of now, no arrests have been made in connection with the assault.”
    What is wrong with you people?! Assault??? This was a murder, no less!!! This rosha MURDERED this man, and is no longer called an assault! Please Stop watering down the despicable act like all the evil journalists out there do!

  6. Something tells me, this story is not as black and white as it sounds, because if it was then YWN would surely have called it “TERROR IN LA: JEWISH MAN KILLED IN TERROR ATTACK”…

  7. This should not be forgiven!
    Imagine if the story would be the other way, their would be RIOTS on the streets all over the country!

  8. At least the Muslim lady attempted to help, unlike her compatriot Muslim savages who killed this beloved old man for no reason.

    Maybe now she will realize, after witnessing the Poor man dying in front of her, what her movement and religion REALLY stands for; killing innocent bystanders all over the world

  9. Time to forbid any more palestinian marches anywhere on American soil, for sake of American public safety. Certainly no more palestinian marches anywhere on American soil until after all hostages have been safely released & returned to their families.

  10. Sick, disturbed, evil subhumans. Of course there’s no arrests from the pathetic, useless LAPD. And don’t hold your breath – there probably won’t be.

  11. יהי זכרו ברוך
    Mr. Kessler ע”ה was an American citizen and he had a constitutional right to walk on any public sidewalk and peacefully demonstrate. When some here attack him for doing so, they are unwittingly giving aid and comfort to his murderer and the Hamas-supporting fundamentalists cheering his death.

  12. @leahspitzer nice job victim blaming. Why would he at his age need an assistant? He was only 65. It’s not like he was a decrepit old man. Yes he is a senior citizen but I don’t think every 65 year old needs to have an assistant.

  13. Somebody should find out and post his hebrew name so we can learn mishnayot for his neshama and the neshamoth of all the other’s murdered by Beni Yishmael and Eisav ;instead of being mere talking heads with a keyboard

  14. why is it that if this was a palestinian or a black, there would be riots all over the place… but not when one of us is murdered? what do we do? do we daven? do we daven and hit the streets?

  15. am not blaming anyone at all u know just saying that’s not safe 2 walk the streets alone anywhere anywhere wherever u might live around the world
