Social media users were shocked and outraged by the recent anti-Israel rally by pro-Palestinian protesters at the University of Michigan this week.
Clips of the protest depicted marchers chanting “Intifada, Intifada! Long live the Intifada,” inspired by the Palestinian riots and uprisings against Israel in the late 1980s, early 1990s and early 2000s.
“There is only one solution!” A crowd behind a female marcher chanted “Intifada! Revolution!

Marchers walking around the Ann Arbor campus shouting bulls and waving Palestinian flags were also heard chanting infamous anti-Israel chants: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!”
Media reported that the anti-Semitic rally was held to protest Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit to the campus on Thursday, where she spoke about climate policy and student activism. The protesters appear to be protesting the US government’s support for the state of Israel.
Another video showed marchers in front of a campus building where Harris gave a speech: “No more nickel, dime, money for Israel’s crimes.”
The apparent call for the overthrow of Israel alarmed popular Twitter users, who were shocked that such sentiments could be expressed so freely on a major American college campus.
Jewish Journal columnist Blake Flayton tweeted, “Call to kill Jews at University of Michigan.”
U.S. Rep. Jared Moskowitz of the United States addressed the shocking nature of the rally, saying, “Hitler’s use of the word ‘solution’ is intentional here. Israel has a right to exist. We will never compromise on that. The Jewish people have their own will. We will ensure that right to exist.” .”

Free Beacon reporter Joe Gabriel Simonson mocked the protesters, writing, “Losing activists think this is an intifada.”
Manhattan Institute’s Ilya Shapiro commented strongly on the protest: “This is because @UMich only spends $18 million on DEI each year.”
Former Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and national security adviser Boris Ryvkin condemned the rally, writing, “Horrible. Except for the violent anti-Semites, the echoes of what happened in Charlottesville are cut from a different cloth. I expect the major media to report. This is the WH, Democratic leaders and caucus members are saturated with wall-to-wall condemnation of this incident.”
Mediaite reporter Isaac Schorr noted, “You guys aren’t doing the best job of managing your situation.”
The popular conservative account AG tweeted, “I don’t think most people really understand the level of hatred and hostility toward Jewish students at a number of top liberal Universities because school administrations tend to support/enable it.”

He wrote, “The first and second intifadas saw terrorists brutally murdering innocent civilians. I can’t even imagine being a Jew on campus in Michigan right now.”
