Hundreds of Pro-Palestinian Protestors Land on Biden’s Delaware Home

'In November, we remember... From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free...'

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) Hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators gathered on Saturday outside President Joe Biden’s Delaware residence, accusing him of supporting what they deemed as genocide amid the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. 

Chants of “Biden, Biden, you can’t hide! We charge you with genocide!” echoed through the air, as captured in a video widely shared on social media and reported by Fox News. Among the protestors was controversial activist Linda Sarsour, known for her anti-Israel rhetoric. 

NBC reporter Gary Grumbach posted a video showing protestors waving Palestinian flags and donning keffiyeh, the black and white scarf symbolic of Palestinian nationalism. The crowd shouted, “No justice, no peace! No justice, no peace! Ceasefire now, ceasefire now!”

Another video showed the protestors shouting, “What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now. If we don’t get it? Shut it down. If we don’t get it? Shut it down. … In November, We Remember!”

In a particularly contentious moment, protestors chanted, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” a phrase explicitly and historically associated with the destruction of the Jewish state.

This phrase gained attention when Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., faced House censure after sharing it on social media. Tlaib defended her use, stating it was an “aspirational call for freedom.” 

Specifically, she claimed, “From the river to the sea is an aspirational call for freedom, human rights, and peaceful coexistence, not death, destruction, or hate.” Despite her claim, the House passed a censure motion against Tlaib.

Biden, who had returned to Delaware following a Veterans Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, was not at the residence during the protest. 

The wave of protests began after Israel initiated an offense in the Hamas-governed Gaza Strip, following the Hamas-led Oct. 7 terrorist attacks. At least 1,400 individuals, including U.S. citizens, died that day. 

Pro-Palestinian protestors claim that the Israeli military actions in Gaza are resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians.
