Students, police clash as Zoabi arrives at Haifa university

November 15, 2010 13:56

Students and police clashed on Monday as MK Haneen Zoabi arrived at the University of Haifa to meet with student supporters of the Balad party despite being banned from speaking.

The altercations began when Jewish students from the "Im Tirtzu" movement tried to prevent Zoabi from making a speech. Zoabi slammed the university's decision to prevent the event from taking place by saying "the excuse that the meeting could disrupt public order is taken from a saying used by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency.)"

"Instead of protecting those in peril, they protect the facists," the Balad MK went on to say.
