A student's collective for a Palestinian state rallied on Israel's Independence Day in Brooklyn. The group, according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), called for Israel's elimination repeatedly.

Within Our Lifetime-United for Palestine, an offshoot of Students for Justice in Palestine, gathered in the upper East side for the rally the labeled "Nakba 71: The Great Return March Continues."

The term "Nakba" means "catastrophe" in Arabic, referring to the Palestinian catastrophe that was the independence of the Jewish state.

"New York City, you will see, Palestine will be free," the students chanted. "New York City, you will learn, refugees will return."

Brooklyn Assemblyman Ralph Perfetto attended and spoke at the event, blaming Israeli Jews for the antisemitism experiences by US Jews.

"I believe the rise in antisemitism in this country is because of what is happening there," Perfetto said. "Not because of the Jewish people in this country, but because of what is happening over there. And, unfortunately, the Jewish people in this country are suffering for it."
