WATCH: BLM Protesters Target Jews in Philadelphia While Yelling ‘Synagogue of Satan’

Rioters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, targeted a group of Jews at protests Tuesday evening against the police shooting of an armed black man, calling them names, shoving them, and chasing them from the scene.

The protests marked the second night of unrest since police shot Walter Wallace, Jr., who had brandished a knife at them.

A video of the confrontation shows several Jewish men, wearing traditional head coverings (yarmulkes or kippot), being confronted by demonstrators.

At the start of the video, a voice is heard taunting the men, calling them “Amalek,” a reference to a Biblically cursed nation.

“You live here?” the voice — presumably the person filming the video — asks.

“Not far,” one answers.

After some crosstalk, the voice is heard ordering them to leave: “Let’s walk. Walk! … Get the fuck out!”

A rioter in a hoodie and a hockey mask then shoves one of the Jewish men.

Another protester intervenes, but the crowd advances, forcing the Jewish men to leave.

The voice behind the camera taunts them with a reference to Revelations 2:9: “Synagogue of Satan!”

The idea that Jews worship Satan is associated with antisemitism — particularly on the extreme right, where it reportedly appears on forums such as Stormfront.

Black Lives Matter protests — and riots — have been associated with antisemitism on several occasions, including the vandalism of synagogues in Los Angeles, California, and Kenosha, Wisconsin.
