A pro-Palestinian protester has been arrested in connection with the death of 69-year-old Paul Kessler, a Jewish man who was supporting Israel during a protest in Thousands Oaks, California.

Loay Alnaji, who was apprehended on Nov. 16, now faces involuntary manslaughter charges and is set to be held on a bail of $1,000,000 at the Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility,

The attack took place on Nov. 5, following Hamas’ unprecedented Oct. 7 attack against Israel that led to the tragic loss of 1,200 innocent Israeli lives, with thousands more injured and hundreds taken hostage.

According to investigators, Alnaji pushed Kessler, causing him to knock his head onto a concrete. The fall had led to brain hemorrhaging that ultimately resulted in the Jewish man’s death.

Dr. Christopher Young, the chief medical examiner for Ventura County, determined the cause of death to be blunt force head trauma, with the manner of death classified as homicide. Revealing critical details about Kessler’s injuries during a press conference, he stated that a CT scan conducted at the hospital unveiled intracranial injuries, including brain swelling and hemorrhage.

Young went on to explain, “The autopsy demonstrated non-lethal injuries to the left side of Mr. Kessler’s face. Additional injuries included injury to the back of the head, these injuries are consistent with and typical of injuries sustained from a fall. Internal injuries also are consistent with a fall which included skull fractures, swelling of the brain, and bruising to the brain.”

What is particularly concerning is Young’s assertion that the injuries to the front of Kessler’s face appeared to be “consistent with a blow to the face.” According to him, the face injuries tell a different story from the injuries at the back of his head caused by his fall.

The face injuries appear to have resulted from Kessler being struck on the face by Alnaji as witnesses told Fox News that the pro-Palestinian college professor struck the deceased with his megaphone.

A video captured from Alnaji’s alleged Instagram account has activist Shahid King Bolsen comparing Hamas to civil rights leaders Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi.

“They want everyone to condemn Hamas. If someone asked me to condemn Hamas I would say, what’s the rush? Let’s let history decide,” Bolsen said in the video.
