An alleged violent attack on Jewish diners by a mob of pro-Palestinian supporters

An alleged violent attack on Jewish diners by a mob of pro-Palestinian supporters in Los Angeles on Tuesday night was being investigated as a possible hate crime, and triggered condemnation from Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Video footage of the attack posted to social media shows a group attacking at least two people outside the Sushi Fumi restaurant in the city’s Beverly Grove neighborhood, west of downtown Los Angeles.

In a pair of tweets addressing the violence, Garcetti, a Democrat, wrote there was “no place for anti-Semitism, discrimination, or prejudice of any kind in Los Angeles. And we will never tolerate bigotry and violence in our communities.”

In a subsequent video, a witness was heard off-camera saying a group of pro-Palestinian supporters were in a car and got out near the restaurant.

“A group of Palestinians, about 30 of them, jumped out of a car and asked who was Jewish,” the person said. “Two guys said they were and they proceeded to beat them up.”

Moments before the attack, a group of Palestinian supporters were in a vehicle waving a giant flag and shouting anti-Semitic slurs through a megaphone, according to additional footage.

“Somebody in one of the cars driving by started throwing glass bottles or glass cups at the tables and they shattered everywhere,” an unidentified woman told KCBS-TV.
