Tensions have been flaring once again in Ferguson, on the heels of new evidence that allegedly supports officer Darren Wilson's claim that the young Michael Brown was reaching for his gun when he was shot.

On Monday, protesters took to the streets again, and began heckling a reporter and cameraperson working for CNN, because it's an organization "run by AIPAC" and "Zionists."

A video, uploaded by Bassem Masri (whose Twitter profile reads "Long Live Palestine"), hears one protester in particular (whether or not it's Masri has not been confirmed) yelling about how CNN are lying to Americans.

“You f---ing lie about Ferguson; you lie about Occupy Wall Street; you lie about Palestine. You’re all run by Zionists,” the protester said. “We’re holding y’all accountable."

The protesters than began chanting "shut it down," forcing the reporter and cameraman to fear for their safety, and subsequently left.

"They ain't going to say the truth," the protester/Masri said. "They get paid by Zionists, they're an AIPAC-run agency."

"They're all run by Israel, so they got to go. They're all liars, and they all got to go."

What Zionism or Israel have anything to do with the protests taking place in Ferguson, Atlanta, or the death of Michael Brown in general, is unclear, but somehow, these protesters have got it in their minds that Israel is at fault here.

Though if it is indeed Masri, it's very possible he's taking advantage of the opportunity to demonize Israel in a public forum and brainwash people into believing that somehow Israel is responsible for the social and political unrest that's been taking place in Ferguson.

Of course they are. When anything bad happens in the world, you should blame the Zionists, right?
