SEATTLE, WA—Reports from Washington State have revealed that not only were Seattle law enforcement officials ordered to stand down and allow pro-Hamas protestors to illegally block a major bridge during Thursday's rush hour, but the US Coast Guard also reportedly agreed to hold maritime traffic at the drawbridge, bringing vehicular and sea-going traffic to a halt for three hours.

According to The Post Millennial, citing sources with the Seattle Police Department, a decision was made to "let the Pro Hamas activists have the bridge and that the Coast Guard agreed to hold boat traffic."



Ari Hoffman reporting for the outlet wrote, "An anonymous source added that unless the Mayor comes out and tells SPD to remove protestors activists will be allowed to hold more blocking protests."



Hoffman later reported, "@SeattlePD was given a stand-down order not to interfere with the pro-Hamas activists on I-5 yesterday. @MayorofSeattle allegedly gave the order to Chief Adrian Diaz"

Over one hundred of the anti-Israel protestors blocked all lanes of the University Bridge and reportedly lashed an 18-foot "ceasefire menorah," in mockery of the Jewish faith while chanting for genocide against Jews and Christians in Israel.

A spokesman for the SPD told The Post Millennial, that the decision to not intervene in the protest despite traffic being blocked for hours was "a question regarding police tactics. This would be better suited for a PDR request. I am not free to discuss SPD tactics and strategies."

KIRO News radio reporter James Lynch described the scene according to My Northwest, saying, "This protest on the University Bridge started at about 4:00 p.m. when a group of about 100 protesters, mostly Jewish and some Palestinians, blocked the bridge with cars and then unfurled a huge banner calling for a ceasefire." The protestors reportedly left the bridge at approximately 6:30p.m.

The University bridge has now been targeted at least twice by pro-Hamas demonstrators with the last shutdown occurring on December 14. Both protests were orchestrated by the radical leftist group "Jewish Voice for Peace," which also participated in the forcible breach of the Hart Senate Office building at the U.S. Capitol, a demonstration that saw the participation of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN).



The same group has also rallied in New York shutting down the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and Holland Tunnel.

According to InfluenceWatch, the "Jewish Voice for Peace" is funded by The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Open Society Network of billionaire left-wing activist financier George Soros. Soros has spent $15 million or more funding groups rallying for Hamas according to The New York Post.
