Bungling Leftist Humiliated after Botched Attempt to Burn American & Israeli Flags

A bungling leftist was left humiliated after he was filmed botching an attempt to burn an American and Israeli flag in New York City.

The would-be-arsonist was caught on a security camera while targeting a Jewish restaurant in Upper Manhattan.

The kosher eatery, Falafel Crunch, was proudly flying the flags outside which appeared to offend the thug.

Footage of the incident was released on Friday by the NYPD.

Police say they are searching for the suspect and investigating the incident as a hate crime.

The brazen suspect can be seen targeting the restaurant on February 24 at around 2:50 p.m.

The video shows the suspect standing on a table to reach the flags as he attempts to set them alight.

However, after failing to light them on fire, he loses his balance as the table spins around.

He then grabs onto the flags and pulls them down to the ground before running away.

The pita shop is on Amsterdam Avenue and about a block from Yeshiva University, a Jewish institution for higher education that is nearly 100 years old.


Police say the anti-American activist then fled the scene in a black sedan northbound on Amsterdam Avenue.

The criminal is described as having a light complexion with a slim build and between 18 and 25 years of age.

He is described as short for a man at around 5 feet, 6 inches tall.

Police said he was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and white sneakers.

This incident is being investigated by the NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force.

In November, Pro-Hamas protesters were seen on the streets of New York City burning the Israeli flag.

They were also seen ripping down posters intended to help find those kidnapped by Hamas terrorists in Israel.

American Jews have become the targets of increased anti-Semitic hate since Israel mounted its response to Hamas’s October 7 terror attacks.
