They wrote: “Hitler should be alive!” and “HITLER DID THE RIGHT THING!”
The antisemites took over the videoconference, made noises and performed vulgar acts on video.
Tal stopped the event and rescheduled it for next Sunday, when it will be more private and secure.
“Unfortunately, this happened in my Zoom discussion in English,” he wrote, along with a screenshot of the antisemitic remarks. “Antisemitism has not disappeared from the world, but we will not let the hatred win.”
Tal wrote to his supporters and told them the event was “disrupted by malicious actors.”
“The fact that people would want to disrupt the important work that we are doing and sabotage our efforts to communicate with supporters only makes me more determined to redouble our efforts,” he wrote.
Tal pledged to continue to strengthen Israel’s partnership with Jews around the world.
“We’ll be more careful, I promise,” he said.
לצערי גם זה קרה היום בשיחת זום באנגלית. אנטישמיות לא נעלמה מהעולם, אבל לא ניתן לשנאה לנצח. נמשיך לחזק את השותפות עם חברינו מסביב לעולם. והעיקר לא לפחד כלל. https://t.co/QyPw6siN1W— אלון טל - Alon Tal (@AlonTal_MK) March 20, 2022
