A nightclub in Brooklyn, New York City, named “The End,” hosted a pro-Hamas event titled the “Intifada FundRaver” on Sunday night.
The event was promoted through a video that showed Hamas footage from a recent surprise attack on Israel, which tragically claimed the lives of over 1,300 victims, including 260 civilians who were casualties of a Hamas attack during an outdoor rave.
The organizer of this event claims that the funds raised during the rave will be directed towards the “PALESTINE CHILDREN’S RELIEF FUND & MEDICAL AID FOR PALESTINE.”
The event was expected to continue into the early morning unless law enforcement intervenes to shut down the event, which is seen as supporting terrorism.
The ticket sales website, open to those 21 and older with a minimum cost of $17, used the October 7th attack on Israel video as a promotion.
Representative Ritchie Torres (D-NY), who represents the South Bronx, has strongly condemned the “Intifada Fundraver.”
“A NYC club known as The End is holding an “Intifada Fundraver,” glorifying the deadliest massacre of Jews since the Holocaust. In promoting the event, http://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 root of antisemitism in American culture that cannot be ignored and must be confronted at every turn. No more turning a blind eye,” he said.
Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine (D) also criticized the “fundraver.”
“A nightclub in Brooklyn called The End is hosting an ‘Intifada Fundraiser’ tonight which they are promoting on Instagram with a music video of Hamas bulldozing into Israel to commit mass murder. This is straight-up glorification of a massacre. Reprehensible,” he said.
