DEPUTY ISRAELI AMBASSADOR ATTACKED AFTER MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY SPEECH

TalyaTwo days ago, Student Rights warned of an upcoming demonstration against Talya Lador-Fresher, the Deputy Israeli Ambassador.  Sure enough, violent scenes followed as Mrs. Lador-Fresher attempted to leave the event.  The demonstration was orchestrated by ‘Action Palestine’ who accosted Mrs. Lador-Fresher outside the event as a manned police vehicle attempted to drive her away.

Director of Student Rights Raheem Kassam has commented, “Two days ago we warned of this kind of behavior – however there was no action taken and as a result, Ms. Lador-Fresher was subject to abuse and attacks as she attempted to leave a speaking engagement at Manchester University.  As you can see from the images captured – this was no ‘peaceful’ demonstration.  Those who cry out for freedom of speech and peace should take a good hard look at what some of these divisive and violent activists on campus are doing.”

Israeli Ambassador HE Ron Prosor commented, “What is going on at British taxpayer-funded universities is shocking. Extremism is not just running through these places of education – it is galloping.”
