Woman Caught on Camera Ripping up Israeli Flag at Brussels Bombing Memorial

A TV station in France captured a rather unsettling image at one of the makeshift memorials for the victims of Tuesday's bombings throughout Brussels. In the video, a woman wearing a headscarf digs through the flags at the memorial, finds an Israeli flag, shreds it, and then hides the pieces.

Here's the video:

From the Jerusalem Post:

A French-language television station captured footage of a woman wearing a hijab ripping up an Israeli flag at a makeshift memorial for the victims of Tuesday’s bombings in Brussels.

The images were captured by the RTL television network and disseminated on the web and social media.

The incident took place at the vigil that was set up in the central Brussels landmark Place de la Bourse.

It's sad that people are unable to put their biases away during what is supposed to be a time to come together as a country to mourn the victims of a senseless attack.
