UPDATE: Suspect’s Photo Released in the Fatal Assault of 65-Year-Old Jewish Man, Paul Kessler

In the wake of the tragic incident which saw a 65-year-old Jewish man lose his life at a pro-Palestinian protest, Rabbi Avraham Berkowitz has released a purported photograph of the suspect involved.

The victim, identified as Paul Kessler, was fatally assaulted on Westlake Boulevard, Ventura County, last Sunday.

Mr. Kessler was involved in a heated altercation that broke out between him and a young pro-Palestine protester. The protester allegedly struck Mr. Kessler in the head with a megaphone, causing him to fall to the ground with a severe head injury.

Equally horrified and concerned bystanders recounted the bloody scene, a sight further complicated by a woman holding a “Free Palestine” sign providing aid to Mr. Kessler. Emergency services were rapidly deployed to the site, and Kessler was immediately rushed to a North Los Angeles hospital, as reported by Ynet News.

Despite best attempts by the medical professionals, Mr. Kessler died due to his injuries Monday, local news outlet The Acorn confirmed.

Rabbi Avraham Berkowitz, providing first-hand account details, verified that the 65-year-old Jewish victim was indeed Paul Kessler.

“Paul Kessler a 65 year old Jewish man, who was pro-Israel was beaten to death in Los Angeles by a pro-Palestinian activist with a megaphone. The victim was evacuated to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The LAPD has confirmed this,” Berkowitz wrote.

Berkowitz posted a photo of the suspect, clarifying the scene at the time of the incident.

According to Berkowitz, “Pro-Israel peace activists were holding a vigil for the victims of the October 7th massacre and demanding the release of the innocent people kidnapped by Hamas, when they were approached and attacked by a group of individuals, including the man in this picture. Please share any information about this man for the LAPD’s investigation.”

The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles responded to the harrowing incident with a heartfelt statement, expressing their devastation.

“We are shattered by the tragic death of elderly Jewish man, Paul Kessler, who was struck in the head by a pro-Palestinian protester in Westlake Village,” it read.

“Violence against our community members in the guise of protest is intolerable. We pledge to do everything in our power to prevent such horrific incidents. As we keep Kessler’s family in our thoughts, we also await more information from our law enforcement partners and draw attention to the growing antisemitic crime in Los Angeles.”

This harrowing incident comes at a time when the Biden regime announced a plan to fight Islamophobia.

According to ADL, “anti-Jewish hate crimes increased by more than 37 percent, reaching highest number in almost three decades, and second-highest number on record.”
