A video posted on Tuesday shows a young man spewing anti-Semitic rhetoric at an observer of the Occupy Wall Street protests in Zuccotti Park. The protester mocked the older Jewish man and told him to “go back to Israel.”

National Review correspondent Charles Cooke explained what happened:

Moments after I arrived, I saw a Jewish gentleman being berated when he criticized a protester. (Shortly after my video camera was switched off, he (inexplicably) shouted the N-word at the same man.)

Here's the video:

The event appears to be the second anti-Semitic incident captured on video at an “Occupy Wall Street” protest.

A video posted on Oct. 3 showed a man telling a crowd that “the Jews control Wall Street!” When a man who identified himself as Jewish challenged him, the protester called him a “greedy pig” and told him to “go to Israel.”

Some people in the crowd alleged that the protester was paid by Fox News.

“Didn’t I see you getting out of a Fox News van earlier?” asked one person.

The protester responded with, “F**k Fox News” and “a f***ing Jew made that up.”
