On Wednesday, MRCTV ventured out to Washington D.C. to talk to pro-Palestinian — and some pro-Hamas — activists who were protesting in front of the Department of State to demand an “end of the [Israeli] siege in Gaza.”
We encountered activists who completely ghosted us, those who declined comment and a bunch of people with a menagerie of takes, including one who said the initial Hamas terrorist attack on Israel was justified.
I couldn’t believe what I heard from that particular protester, so I had to follow up to make sure what I heard was accurate.
“So do you think that initial action was justified?” I asked the man.
“It was justified so long as Israelis spoke violence to them,” the man responded. “That’s what they’ve been speaking to them for 100-plus years.”
Okay, tell us how you really feel — except that Israel wasn’t a country 100 years ago.
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to have that many substantive conversations considering there was more than one person telling people not to talk to us because we’re “the opposition.”
All in all, it was an eye-opening experience where we got to see what the pro-Palestinian crowd thinks about the current conflict in the Middle East.

This is a horribly chilling conversation between a Hamas terrorist and his father. These are the people the media refuse to condemn. pic.twitter.com/Caq6GAQpl8— MRCTV (@mrctv) October 26, 2023
