SOUTH BEND, Ind. — REAL News Michiana has identified one of the masked attendees at a rally in support of the terrorist organization Hamas as a 6th grade Social Studies teacher at Lasalle Academy middle school. Daniel Fischer attended the rally in Downtown South Bend on Wednesday, October 11th.
Fischer covered most of his face while at the rally and even participated in news interviews using a fake name. In interviews with ABC57 and WSBT, Fisher claimed his name was Pawel Rogalski. RNM was able to confirm Fischer’s true identity through tips from readers. He is listed as a 6th Grade Social Studies teacher on the Lasalle Middle School website.
RNM also spoke to Fischer, who initially approached us claiming to be Jewish. When RNM asked what he thought about Jewish babies being killed by Hamas in Israel on October 7th, Fischer dodged the question by hurling insults at the reporter.
“I think I have better things to do than talk to a Fascist like you.” Fisher said.
“Fascist? These are the real Nazis.” RNM responded while pointing to the crowd of pro-Hamas supporters. “They’re trying to exterminate the Jews.”
RNM spoke to several other pro-Hamas protesters at the rally. One man who identified himself as Ali Farah told RNM he was happy about the deaths of 1,300 innocent Jews in Israel during a terrorist attack by Hamas on October 7th.
RNM was also contacted by a man who claimed to be Fischer’s Rabbi, Joshua Rubin. Rubin is the director of the Liberal Jewish Fellowship which appears to be antithetical to the Jewish faith. It pushes “social justice” in an attempt to “nurture a progressive Jewish community.” Another leader of the LJF is a woman by the name of Abbee Smith. According to Smith’s bio on the LJF website, she is a clinical social worker with “a particular passion for working with trans adolescents.”
