Anti-Israel Protesters Target AIPAC President’s Home With Smoke Bombs, Call Him ‘Baby Killer’

Anti-Israel demonstrators held a raucous protest outside the home of the president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), lighting smoke bombs and calling him a “baby killer.”

Protesters gathered for the loud and hostile demonstration outside AIPAC President Michael Tuchin’s vacation home in Los Angeles on the US holiday of Thanksgiving.

AIPAC, a nonpartisan organization, is the foremost pro-Israel lobbying group in the US.

“F—k your holiday baby killer!” the group chanted, marking Thanksgiving by spilling red-paint-covered wads of cloth to symbolize dead babies and accuse Tuchin having blood on his hands.

Videos circulated on social media showed protesters lighting smoke bombs, filling the area outside Tuchin’s residence with a gray haze.

The rally was organized by People’s City Council — Los Angeles, a left-wing organization that describes itself as an “abolitionist, anti-capitalist & anti-imperialist collective amplifying the voice of the people through direct action.” On X/Twitter, the group described the protest as a “holiday wakeup call.”

“AIPAC spends tens of millions to control pro-genocide congress members. F—k your holiday baby killer! #FreePalestine,” the People’s City Council wrote.

Members of the so-called “Squad,” a group of far left members of the US House of Representatives, have frequently lobbed similar attacks at AIPAC. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), for example, has previously called AIPAC a “right-wing Super PAC funded by millions of dollars in Dark Money spending” and accused the group of using money to buy support for Israel in the US Congress.

Thursday’s protest came amid a historic surge in antisemitic incidents across the US since the Hamas terror group’s massacre in southern Israel on Oct. 7. A recent report published by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) recorded 832 outrages targeting American Jews between Oct. 7 and Nov. 7 — an average of 28 incidents per day and a 316 percent increase on the same period in 2022.

Europe has also experienced surging antisemitism following last month’s attack and amid the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.
