Anti-Israel Protestors Scream Middle Of Night Outside Thanedar’s Home

WASHINGTON, DC (IANS) – Pro-Palestinian supporters gathered outside the home of Indian American Congressman Shri Thanedar in the middle of the night, slamming his support for Israel in its war with Hamas.

“This is my home at 3 AM Sunday,” Thanedar wrote on X, and shared a video showing a protestor waving keffiyeh, a checkered black and white scarf worn by Palestinians.

Amidst blaring car horns, a protester can be heard shouting, “you are complicit in the bombing of Gaza… Your silence is violence. Your silence is abhorrent, and we will not let you sleep! There will be a price to pay”.

Another protester in the video is seen holding a placard that read: “20,000 Gazans dead! Wake the f**k up Shri!!”

The video shared by Thanedar was posted on X platform by Huwaida Arraf, a Palestinian-American human/civil rights attorney and activist, according to her X bio.

Along with the video, Arraf wrote the message: “Detroit constituents of Rep Shri Thanedar visited his house in the middle of the night to get him to #WakeTheFUp about the ongoing genocide in Palestine that he’s supporting.

“If Gaza’s children can’t sleep from the US-supplied bombs Israel is dropping and babies are being blown to bits, no enabler should be allowed to sleep,” she wrote.

A staunch supporter of Israel, Thanedar had called for the elimination of Palestinian militant group Hamas “from the face of the earth”, saying that they are just “barbaric terrorists”.

“I condemn these violent attacks against the Jewish people and the state of Israel. The calculated aggression targeting innocent civilians is heartbreaking and cannot be tolerated. America stands firmly with Israel,” Thanedar had said as Hamas launched the massive attack on southern Israel on October 7.

He also urged Congress to rally behind Israel until the threat is addressed and security is restored.

According to human rights advocates and aid groups, a vast majority of Gaza’s 2.2 million people are displaced, and an estimated half face starvation. Israeli military officials say 118 soldiers have been killed during the country’s ground invasion in Gaza, which came after 1,200 people were killed and about 240 hostages were captured by Hamas on October 7.

  • Look at Dubai. How glamorous the city is. I’m sure the Islamic Emiratis have enough money to help their suffering Muslim brothers and sisters living in Palestine. They could make a beautiful, glamorous city for the displaced Palestinians right in the United Arab Emirates. If these activists truly cared about Palestinian lives, shouldn’t they be protesting against rich Middle Eastern Islamic countries that aren’t doing anything?

    • Tel he Aran nations are refusing to take their Arab refugees. Or openly helping.

      So these women are trying to get the govts that took refugees and sent billions in aid to do more.

      Enough abuse of my taxes. Stop blocking my roads and causing a nuisance.

  • The argument goes both ways. The protestors are complacent with Hamas and their horrible behavior. Should be tried in criminal court.

    Now that Hamas failed to what they thought they would and got their butts kicked, these idiots call for humanity.
