A violent anti-Israel riot broke out Wednesday night in front of DNC headquarters in Washington, D.C. Video, which you can watch below, shows police aggressively removing pro-Palestinian demonstrators from the front of the building. A number of people were arrested. To understand what’s happening in the world and our nation, read my book, “Culture Jihad.”

“Right now our officers are working to keep back approximately 150 people who are illegally and violently protesting in the area of Canal Street and Ivy Street, SE. Officers are making arrests. All Members have been evacuated from the area. Please stay away from the area,” Capitol Police said in a statement.

US Capitol Police say all House Office buildings were placed on lock down due to the increasing violence. Also, there were Democrat lawmakers who had to be evacuated from the building.

“Was just evacuated from the #DNC after pro-terrorist, anti-#Israel protestors grew violent, pepper spraying police officers and attempting to break into the building. Thankful to the police officers who stopped them and for helping me and my colleagues get out safely,” Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) wrote on Twitter.

U.S. Capitol Police released a statement Thursday morning:

“We have handled hundreds of peaceful protests, but last night’s group was not peaceful. The crowd failed to obey our lawful orders to move back from the DNC, where Members of Congress were in the building. When the group moved dumpsters in front of the exits, pepper sprayed our officers and attempted to pick up the bike rack, our teams quickly introduced consequences – pulling people off the building, pushing them back, and clearing them from the area, so we could safely evacuate the Members and staff. Six officers were treated for injuries, from minor cuts to being pepper sprayed to being punched.”
