On Saturday August 2, 2014, a national march for Gaza took place in front of the White House.
A pro-Israeli counter-protester (U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran Manny Vega) was standing on 16th and H Streets with Israeli and American flags. Vega was approached by an Arab who began engaging in a very productive conversation with him. However, as more pro-Palestinian protesters marched by them, some engaged in violent acts against him. (This is where the video begins recording.) He was punched, pulled, kicked, and even spat on.
The mob was screaming “Allahu Akbar!” during the attack.
The spat on him, kicked him and punched him in the face.

Pro-Israel protesters were later evacuated from in front of the White House for their own safety.
