Protesters Disrupt Former Israeli Foreign Minister’s Duke Speech


The Left has no problem with some of the world’s worst racists and human rights violators speaking at American universities. It is speakers from democratic Israel that drives them into a frenzy.

The anti-Israel Left will never engage in civilized debate, because they know that they would lose. Instead, they chose to censure, and intimidate, and violate the civil rights of pro-Israel American’s.

When will action be taken to stop this seditious behavior?

Protesters Disrupt Former Israeli Foreign Minister’s Duke Speech

“The goal here is nothing about advancing human rights,” Cooper said. “The goal here… is the demonization and de-legitimization of the Jewish State of Israel.”

By Jewish Journal, October 26, 2019:

A group of around 20 student protesters disrupted former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni’s Oct. 23 speech at Duke University.

The Duke Chronicle reports that the disruption began at an event hosted by The Duke Program for American Grand Strategy (AGS). Moderator Bruce Jentleson asked Livni about the 2008-2009 Gaza War and a student interrupted Livni, shouting that the war was a “massacre.”

Other students followed suit, shouting the names of Palestinians that Israeli soldiers killed; eventually, they started chanting, “You can’t hide, we charge you with genocide” at Livni.

According to the Duke Chronicle, the disruption lasted two-and-a-half minutes before security escorted the protesters out; the protesters shouted “Shame!” at Livni as they were leaving.

When the protest ended, Livni said, “It’s a shame that we cannot have this discussion” and proceeded to defend Israel’s right to defend itself from Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

“Put yourself in my position in the Israeli cabinet,” Livni said. “You will decide whether you would let terrorists kill your own civilians.”
