Guy Fires Red Paintballs at Israeli Flag – Not Being Handled as Hate Crime

He vandalized the Israeli flag because he LOVES Israel.

They won’t release his name, either.

Man accused of firing red paint at Israeli flag in Philadelphia.

Police reportedly investigating the incident as a case of vandalism rather than a hate crime.

Laura Frank, an employee of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, said that she and her colleagues ran to the display of world flags after a friend called to tell them the Israeli flag was being vandalized.

“As we approached, we noticed a man with a paint gun shooting paint at the Israeli flag,” she told local news service WPVI. She took photos of the man and called police, who arrested him and found a paintball gun with red paint in a trash can close to the flag.

Mayor Jim Kenney confirmed a suspect was taken into custody and decried the vandalism as hateful.

“I’m very upset to learn of the desecration of the Israeli flag that hangs along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Hate and anti-Semitism have no place in the City of Philadelphia,” Kenney told CBS Philadelphia. “While I understand that emotions are running high and there are many viewpoints stemming from recent violence against Palestinians and other protesters in the Gaza Strip, it doesn’t warrant hateful acts of violence.”

The suspect’s name hasn’t been released, and WPVI reported that police are investigating the incident as a case of vandalism rather than a hate crime.

  1. How did the genius mayor reach the conclusion that the desecration was tied to the violence in Palestine? Vandalism is mostly mischief, but is sometimes gang related.

    This is a political statement designed to strike terror against a minority group. No other flags were shot at.

    That the name of the perp is being withheld speaks volumes.

    That idiot mayor has given the perp a defense: temp insanity on account of the Palestinian riots. He can use the mayor’s statement in court.
