Awawdeh reportedly told prosecutors, “If I could do it again, I would do it again. I have no problem doing it again.”

The group allegedly knocked Borgen to the ground and then punched, kicked, pepper-sprayed and beat him with crutches while making anti-Semitic remarks. Borgen said he was on his way to a pro-Israel rally but never made it there because of the attack.

“I felt a liquid being poured on my face, and at first, I thought I was getting urinated on, but it turned out I was getting maced and pepper-sprayed,” Borgen told the New York Post. “My face was on fire. That pain was worse than the concussion and all this other stuff that followed.”
