Pro-Palestinian protesters vandalize NY Times, Grand Central Station

Pro-Palestinian protesters caused problems in New York City Friday night, including vandalism at Grand Central Station and the headquarters of the New York Times.

Several arrests occurred as some demonstrations grew violent in multiple locations to start the weekend.

The violence

"The mob was part of a 'Flood Manhattan for Gaza' protest that initially converged on Columbus Circle earlier in the evening, where they set fire to an Israeli flag and taunted a small faction of counter-demonstrators before marching through Manhattan and splattering fake blood on the New York Times building," the New York Post reported.

“'We don’t want a Jewish state. We want ‘48!' the anti-Israel protesters chanted at the starting point, referring to Palestine before the establishment of Israel," it added.

Grand Central Station

"Grand Central Station was briefly shut down Friday night due to a large demonstration outside in support of Palestinians. Several people were taken into custody," CBS News reported.

"NYPD sources tell us police are becoming increasingly concerned with hostility over the Israel-Hamas war and the number of rallies held across the city," it continued.

The New York Times

"Thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters took to the streets of Manhattan on Thursday, crowding the lobby of The New York Times building during a demonstration that left two NYPD cruisers parked outside vandalized with the words 'FREE GAZA,'" Insider reported.

"Demonstrators staged a sit-in inside the New York Times' building as they called for an immediate ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war and handed out mock newspapers called 'The New York War Crimes,'" it noted.

The ongoing violent protests following Hamas attacks in Israel continue to concern Americans, especially Jewish Americans, who see the Palestinian efforts as antisemitic and threatening to their personal safety.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration has supported Israel's response to Hamas attacks that killed 1,400 Israelis but has since called for a cease-fire.

The war in the Middle East continues to impact life in the U.S. in many ways, now including violent protests destroying property in the nation's largest city and creating chaos leading to arrests and shutdowns.
