“Austin, Austin, rise and shine, no sleep during genocide!” was one of the chants anti-Israel protesters shouted in front of the home of U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Monday.
There and outside the home of Jake Sullivan, the U.S. national security adviser, protesters aimed “to disrupt Christmas morning for two of President Biden’s top foreign affairs officials,” per the New York Post.
Also on Monday, anti-Israel protesters clashed in New York City with police officers. One NYPD officer was reportedly punched in the throat. The protesters announced that Christmas was canceled there.
Their chants included “Long live the intifada” and “NYPD KKK, IDF they’re all the same.”
