The protester who heckled Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during his speech to a joint session of the US Congress was arrested by police for "disrupting Congress," a press release from the group Move Over AIPAC said.

Rae Abileah was taken to the hospital by Capital Police after reportedly being "assaulted and tackled" in the House Gallery by persons described by CODEPINK as "AIPAC members."

Abileah, a member of CODEPINK from California, is Jewish and of Israeli descent, according to a press release.
