Breitbart’s Charlie Nash reports:

The flags, which featured the Star of David over the LGBT rainbow, allegedly “made people feel unsafe,” and upset attendees who claimed that the march was “anti-Zionist,” and “pro-Palestinian,” prompting organizers to banish the Jews from the march.

The Chicago Dyke March defended their actions in a post following the incident, where they solidified their “anti-Zionist” position and used an anti-Semitic term.

The March’s actions were condemned by numerous Jewish groups, individuals, and civil rights groups, including the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, and A Wider Bridge, who described the incident as “heinous.”
