When members of the crowd were told they needed to leave immediately and that the protest was now an unlawful assembly, they cheered.

Eventually, Pennsylvania state troopers removed those gathered, handcuffing them with zip ties as others chanted, “Free, free, free Palestine.”

Capitol Police said 126 people were detained and cited.

It is so sad to see the result of woke teachers handiwork on their students, when they do something so despicable to stand against a people who were murdered and tortured horribly. It is unthinkable people can be so distorted and sick in their thinking that they would act this way supporting the murderers! This is brainwashing of the first kind taught by the same teachers. I am sure the evil spirits Christ spoke of all through the Bible, had much to do with these riots as well (they’re not just sitting around doing nothing but are influencing these people that’s why they are so riled up).

We bless Pennsylvania and the actions of its Treasurer Stacy Garrity, for investing in Israel. We thank you Lord that the protest did not lead to the loss of life.

We pray for a divine covering over those governing the state of Pennsylvania who are standing for and with Israel, that they would not acquiesce to the pressures of the anti-semitic and will stand firm for Israel. We ask that You frustrate every attempt of the enemy for destruction and chaos. Instead, cause blind eyes to be opened throughout the state such that those who were numbered among the protestors and others like them will proclaim the high praises of Jesus and direct their energies and passion toward the defense of Israel.

Let every anti-Israel protest in America backfire and now produce a double portion of support and stir up double love in people’s hearts for our sister Israel. In Jesus’ name.
