Students say U.S. should end its support of Israel

Dozens of students decried the state of Israel at a “Day of Anger” rally outside the American Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC) headquarters in Washington D.C., on Thursday.

“Jews have had their golden age under Muslim rule,”  said Mohammad Abou-Ghazala, a student from nearby George Mason University, who identified as a Muslim.

“[N]o I do not support the continuation of the state because of what it means for my people and the perpetuation of the cruelty they have had for my people,” he added.

“Right now the U.S. government gives Israel $3 billion a year, annually which supports ethnic cleansing, colonialism, and apartheid,” said another student, from Tel Aviv University.

“But Israelis?” he asked. “I have not problem with Israelis.”

“1-2-3-4 occupation no more, 5-6-7-8 Israel is a racist state.” the students chanted.

@Gabby_Hoffman @campusreform @CalebBonham I object. Commencement speakers should be proportional to the population.
