According to reports, the Los Angeles Police Department have confirmed Kessler passed away Monday from internal bleeding in the brain.
Witnesses at the scene say Kessler and the pro-Palestine protester got into a verbal altercation just before the man with the megaphone hit Kessler in the head. Police are now investigating the incident but have yet to make any arrests.
While threats against Jewish people, their communities, and their places of worship continue to escalate in the wake of a Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel on October 7, the Biden Administration has pressed forward with its new efforts to combat Islamophobia. Meanwhile, student groups on college campuses have continued spewing anti-Semitic phrases and praising Hamas terrorists, while pro-Palestine protesters openly wave Hamas flags in the streets.
