Hundreds of anti-Israel protesters descended on Radio City Music Hall Thursday night ahead of President Biden's star-studded campaign fundraiser as part of a "Flood Manhattan for Gaza" demonstration.

The droves of angry demonstrators surrounded the iconic venue on Sixth Avenue, where former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton will join Biden for the fundraiser that includes a discussion moderated by CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert.

"Free, free Palestine!" the group chanted as they were closely watched by a line of NYPD officers who stood at the ready behind barricades placed outside the theater.

At least one demonstrator had been arrested for disorderly conduct by 8 p.m. Thursday, sources said.

Many protesters waved Palestinian flags while others held signs denouncing the president and the Democratic Party as "war criminals." Other signs read: "End all US aid to Israel."

One protester is detained. 

Thursday's fundraiser raised $25 million for the president in his reelection campaign — setting a record for the biggest haul for a political event, according to Biden's campaign.

More than 5,000 people paid between $225 and $500,000 to attend the event, a Democrat familiar with the planning said. Even streaming the event online costs $25.

The biggest donors get to spend the most time with the presidents: a photo with all three is $100,000. A donation of $250,000 earns donors access to one reception, and $500,000 gets them into an even more exclusive gathering.

First lady Jill Biden and DJ D-Nice are hosting an after-party at Radio City Music Hall with 500 guests.

Protesters chanted "free Palestine." A line of police officers, cruisers and sanitation trucks was put outside of Radio City. Biden will be joined on stage by former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton on Thursday. AP

"The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert was tapped to host the trio of former Democratic presidents' "armchair conversation" in front of the crowd. Queen Latifah, Lizzo, Ben Platt, Cynthia Erivo and Lea Michele are also slated to perform.

Beginning at noon Thursday, NYPD shut down 49th, 50th and 51st streets to traffic between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenues outside of the iconic venue, NBC reported.

Meanwhile Biden's opponent, former President Donald Trump, attended the wake for slain NYPD officer Jonathan Diller on Long Island.

After meeting with the 31-year-old's mourning family, Trump called for "toughening up" on law and order outside of the Massapequa funeral home.

"The perfect family has been so tragically altered, forever altered," the former commander in chief told The Post in an exclusive interview.

The democrat party is the party of the wealthy & the elites. The Biden campaign already has triple what the Trump campaign has, and they figure to keep getting huge donations all summer long. It was good to see the protestors who represent a lot of people who have tremendous influence over the democrat party.

My feelings about the Israel-Hamas issue are pretty well known around here anyway, and I've got one comment about those bleeding heart terrorist-supporting protesters:

FUCK THEM TO HELL!!!!

They have the money, the media and an army of lawyers.

It should be a slam dunk.
