Pro-Israel Activists Roughed Up at Anti-Israel Rally (VIDEO)

The video below was taken at an anti-Israel rally in Oakland on Wednesday. As you can see, the protesters didn’t take too kindly to having their turf encroached on by some pro-Israel activists who were wielding…chalk. In response an anti-Israel activist wielded her… fists.
According to the Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers website, an anonymous contributor tentatively identified the female assailant as Gabby (Gabrille) Silverman, whose mug shot appeared in the online edition of the San Francisco Chronicle after she was arrested on Oct. 6, 2012 as part of a group that marched through the city’s Financial District in black clothing and tossed projectiles at police officers.
Dr. Michael Harris, spokesperson for the local chapter of Israel advocacy group Stand With Us, told The Algemeuner that “this is unfortunately not an isolated incident.”
“There were four people arrested several years ago after a rally in San Francisco for assaulting pro-Israel activists,” Harris said, adding, “the person who filmed this event in Oakland was himself the target of a completely unprovoked attack by an anti-Israel demonstrator in November on front of the Israel consulate in San Francisco.”
“I think it is very unfortunate that some of the same people who are supporting Hamas violence against Israelis are themselves attacking supporters of Israel here,” Harris concluded.
