NY nightclub showed Israeli soldiers being massacred to promote ‘Intifada Fundraver’

The End nightclub in Brooklyn used a video of a bulldozer smashing the Gaza border fence


A New York nightclub has been heavily criticized for using video of Israeli troops being massacred to promote an ‘Intifada Fundraver’ night.

Video promoting the controversial event on Instagram showed Israeli soldiers being killed after being ripped out of their tanks.

The invitation used a photo of a Hamas bulldozer tearing down a border fence before the slaughter of hundreds of Israeli civilians.

Democratic Congressman Ritchie Torres criticized the nightclub in Bushwick, Brooklyn, for "glorifying the deadliest massacre of Jews since the Holocaust."

He said: "In promoting the event, TheEnd.NYC Instagram account features a video of Hamas terrorists bulldozing the Gaza Strip border wall before carrying out the bloodiest terrorist attack in the history of Israel.

"There is a deep rot of antisemitism in American culture that cannot be ignored and must be confronted at every turn. No more turning a blind eye."

However, critics of the event were attacked by Democratic NY State Senator Julia Salazar.

‘I personally would love it if people would stop inciting fascists to come to my district and counter-protest some party at a club that was promoted with very stupid and insensitive messaging,’ she said.

After being called out, the event removed the title ‘Intifada Fundraiser’ from promotional material and deleted the video.

Organizers said in a statement: "We are not here to promote violence of any kind.

"It’s sad to see the nature of this event be twisted by politicians and social media. This is a peaceful fundraiser for the Palestinian children’s relief fund & medical aid for Palestine."

Afterwards they posted on Instagram "Beautiful night" alongside video of the event that appeared to have been poorly attended.
