Westboro Baptist Church Protests At Yeshiva University With ‘Jews Killed Jesus’ Signs

Half a dozen Westboro Baptist Church members protested outside Yeshiva University Monday, holding signs that proclaimed the Jews killed Jesus.

Westboro Baptist Church is based in Topeka, Kansas and is known for its virulent speech against Jews, Muslims, gays and others. Its website is The protest was part of the church’s “God Hates Your Idols Preaching Tour.”

The church members sang, “wrath will soon pour on you, for your harmful sins, your great affliction, it will soon begin.” They set the words to the tune of the Israeli national anthem.

Some 25 Yeshiva University students held a counter protest, holding signs reading “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

The church’s next stop is the University of Phoenix in Glendale, Arizona, where members plan to picket the Final Four as “pagan idolatry.”
