Embassy of Israel | Threatened by Secret Service | Security Grabs Camera

On February 28th, 2019 I visited the Embassy of Israel in Washington, DC.

To be clear, I introduced myself by my first name (which is redacted) to be friendly but refused to give my last name or ID.

This was my first video. My choice to visit the Israeli embassy was based on the goal of exercising my rights only. My views on Israeli politics and US Foreign Policy towards Israel had no bearing on this video and will remain private for these purposes.

Note: After searching the truck K-9 Officer "Joe" stopped to talk, holding his dog within approximately a foot of one of the embassy security personnel. The dog showed no signs of aggression and Joe clearly wasn't worried about any aggression from the dog. This demonstrates that he ordered me to move only in an attempt to deny my right to film. Sorry for not including it originally, but here is a link to that clip on imgur:

Update: A complaint concerning the Secret Service K-9 Officer has been filed with the DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.
Location: Washington, DC, USA
