At Least 40 Shot Over the Weekend in Chicago

As leftists around the world rally in support of the Hamas terrorists there seems to be more violence in the president’s home town rather than in the Middle East.

An 11-year-girl was shot and killed during a slumber party as violence struck Chicago over the weekend, local media outlets reported on Sunday.

At least 40 people were shot, and four killed, in weekend violence in the third-largest U.S. city, the NBC affiliate in Chicago reported. 

The deaths included an 11-year-old girl, shot in the head inside a first-floor bedroom on Friday night after someone fired a gun from outside the house, said Chicago Police Officer Jose Estrada.

Shamiya Adams, who died the next day, had been sitting on the floor during a sleep-over at her best friend’s home, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The Chicago Police Department on Sunday had not released an official tally of the weekend violence. But reports of another outbreak of gunfire came as the city has been grappling with a wave of summer violence.

Meanwhile as the Chicago violence escalated, terror supporters were out in force in the Windy City.

Thousands of protesters were marching through downtown Chicago on Sunday in support of Palestinians as Israeli forces continue a ground invasion in the Gaza Strip.

Protesters were carrying Palestinian flags and signs reading “Save Gaza’s children” and chanting “Free, free Palestine.”

Salam Khatib, 19, of Valparaiso, Ind., participated in the march with seven of her family members.

“We just hope people will expand their knowledge of what’s going on in Palestine,” she said. “It just doesn’t make sense to me.”

What doesn’t make sense is how people can support this who hide behind children as they ply their terrorist trade.

    “Salam Khatib, 19, of Valparaiso, Ind., participated in the march with seven of her family members.”

    I would be willing to donate to a fund that will pay for her return to Gaza so she can fully participate.
