Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently conducted a revealing social experiment on the University of California-Berkeley campus.
First, he waved an Islamic State flag while shouting statements supportive of the terrorist group and critical of the United States. He then switched to the flag of Israel and condemned Hamas, also a terrorist group.
The Islamic State flag demonstration appeared to result in essentially no confrontations, according to the footage published. One person even told Horowitz “good luck” and others seemingly expressed support for his cause.
However, when he began waving the Israeli flag, he was met almost immediately with angry students who accused the Jewish state of being "killers," tyrannical and guilty of genocide.
“Israel is a thief in the night, and a thief in the day,” one person said. “It’s the greatest, Hamas.”
A less eloquent man just repeatedly said, “f**k Israel.” Horowitz also received a few middle fingers for supporting Israel.
Watch and compare the reactions to the two different flags:
