Videos: Anti-Israel Protesters Crash Yerushalayim Mayor Barkat’s Talk in San Francisco


Dozens of pro-Palestinian protesters on Wednesday barged into a public lecture by Yerushalayim Mayor Nir Barkat at San Francisco State University, shouting slogans and attempting to prevent him from speaking.

“Anyone who thinks that calls for violence and incitement will be able to silence us or divert us from our position is mistaken,” Barkat said. “We will continue to build, develop and strengthen the State of Israel and within it a united Jerusalem, and we will continue to voice our opinions and our legitimacy when we are invited to do so, even in places where they try to stop us.”




  1. “From the river to the sea” …

    You see…This has nothing to do with Jerusalem or Har HaBayis, even if you live in Bnei Brak they want you out….

    Oh yeah chanting “Intifada” ??? Is that good PR?

  2. So David, does Israel have better PR? Israel is not putting enough effort into PR at all and they are losing that part of the battle. Only Hashem can turn that around, or anything else, for that matter.

  3. Memyself&I:
    you’re completely ignorant. They have a huge pr campaign right now going on on college campuses costing millions of dollars; this speech was part of it. I do not think anything will become better because hate for yidden is symbolic. It’s written in our books. We know it. This is how we’ve lived all our lives. To start pointing fingers as to how it must be done to be avoided is silly cus as you said: Only hashem can turn that around. But mitzad hishtadlus, the govt is doing a lot…
    I just think freedom of speech and public disturbance of an official figure or anything like that should be stopped and this wasn’t… The kids protesting are all either muslim or ignorant american students; as much as I have some real issues with trump; something keeps on telling me that america needs a guy like that to shut these pple up.
