The chants are led by Palestinian Hamas supporter Bassem Masri, who has been one of the main agitators in Ferguson and who himself has been arrested for assault on a police officer, including apparently spitting on one of them in a video.

Prior to killing the two police officers in New York, Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley posted a hate-filled rant on Instagram in which he said he would be shooting cops, “putting pigs in a blanket”.

Here’s a video of Masri from a prior arrest in Ferguson, video taken by a New York Occupier punk, Shawn Carrie, who was also there.

According to the Daily Caller, Masri was invited to a DOJ meeting on Ferguson back in November.

“DOJ has appointed a few of us2reform the police in the entire region that should resonate nationwide thats the director intentions,” Masri tweeted in November.

The Daily Caller confirmed at the time that the DOJ invited Masri to attend a community session. The agency sought to downplay his role in the event and said it was unaware of Masri’s extreme rhetoric when the invitation was extended.

“Y’all motherfuckers don’t want to hold no police accountable,” Masri was heard saying on his livestream Saturday evening. “Motherfuckers is going to hold police accountable their own way.”

“Y’all mad about what happened in New York?” Masri is heard yelling at police at one point Saturday.

Prior to the events in Ferguson, Masri’s activism focused on the Palestinian cause and support for the terrorist group Hamas.

Masri put that support on display Saturday, at one point wrapping his face in a keffiyeh, a scarf meant to show solidarity with Palestine.

“This how my boys wrap they face. The Palestinian resistance. Real mean. Y’all police – why don’t y’all go stand toe-to-toe with the Palestinian resistance?” Masri said, taunting police.
