Pro-Israel U.S. Marine Manny Vega Attacked by Pro-Palestinians in Washington, DC

On August 2, a national march for Gaza took place in front of the White House. A pro-Israeli counter-protester (U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran Manny Vega) was standing on 16th and H Streets with Israeli and American flags. Vega was approached by an Arab who began engaging in a very productive conversation with him. However, as more pro-Palestinian protesters marched by them, some engaged in violent acts against him. (This is where the video begins recording.) He was punched, pulled, kicked, and even spat on. (Spitting occurs multiple times between https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6lgjtfbsIs# and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6lgjtfbsIs#.)
