Anti-Semitic and anti-Israel attacks during Occupy Wall Street protests in New York are shown in a video put out by a neo-Conservative political group.

The one-minute video, in which Jews are blamed for the trouble in American financial markets and told to “go back to Israel,” was created by the Emergency Committee for Israel. It has had more than 20,000 views since it appeared Oct. 13 on YouTube. The video also shows signs raised against Israel’s occupation of Gaza; Israel ceded Gaza to the Palestinians in 2005.

The video will air on television in New York and Washington, Politico reported.

The Emergency Committee for Israel is focused on criticizing President Obama’s Israel policy and is urging Jews to vote Republican in the 2012 presidential election. Its video calls on Obama and U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the House of Representatives’ minority leader, to “stand up to the mob” of Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Among the signs showed by the video are “Gaza supports the occupation of Wall Street” and “Hitler’s Bankers.”

Many participants in the Occupy Wall Street protests are Jewish.
