According to the report, several dozen right-wing activists were protesting outside an auditorium in the city of Ramat Hasharon over Tibi’s participation in the panel. Protesters carried signs accusing Tibi of being a “terrorist” and “murderer,” and one sign read, “You’re not wanted here!”
Footage of the scene showed that when Tibi arrived at the auditorium, several police officers had to stand between him and the protesters, who shouted derogatory remarks at him.
The police detained two protesters for questioning for allegedly trying to attack Tibi as he entered the premises.
He further accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of incitement against Arab lawmakers.
