Anti-Israel protesters gathered at the home of Rep. Shri Thanedar, accusing him of silence regarding Palestinian deaths in Gaza.
The protesters were loud and disruptive, with one claiming “there will be a price to pay.”
“You are complicit in the bombing of Gaza… Your silence is violence. Your silence is abhorrent, and we will not let you sleep!” the protestors yelled. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

“20,000 GAZANS DEAD! WAKE THE —- UP SHRI!!!” the sign of one protestor read.
Thanedar has been a vocal supporter of Israel and distanced himself from a group over its response to an attack by Hamas.
“After the brutal terrorist attacks on Israel, which included the indiscriminate murder, rape, and kidnapping of innocent men, women, and children, I can no longer associate with an organization unwilling to call out terrorism in all forms,” Thanedar wrote.
He has expressed strong support for Israel on his campaign website.
“In this time of great international uncertainty, it is now more important than ever before to reaffirm as a people, and as a nation, our unequivocal support for the state of Israel, the lone Democracy in the Middle East and one of our closest, and strongest, allies across the globe,” he wrote.
Recently, he condemned the hacking of his account, which resulted in the posting of an antisemitic message.
Despite a post critical of Israel, he later expressed support for the nation and its funding.
