The Israel-Hamas war has come to America.
Black Hebrew Israelites and pro-Hamas Palestinians duked it out in the streets of Chicago this weekend.
Video captured by Yeshiva World News showed pro-Hamas protesters using their Palestinian flag poles as weapons as both sides fought in the roadway Sunday:

FYI BHI believe they are the real Jews, and Jews like me are fake Khazarians.

The wooden pole snapped in the process. Both sides lobbed bottles and sticks at each other while Chicago police struggled to keep them apart.
That was the story on Saturday, as well, when police failed to do so, resulting in tense times along Michigan Avenue.
The Black Israelites appeared to be outnumbered, but that didn’t deter them from wanting to get a piece of the Palestinians:
Wel all hell broke lose between some of the Palestinian protesters and the Black Israelites. Police and organizers did their best to calm things down to varying degrees of success. pic.twitter.com/VtgsrLGWgT
