A lecture given by Israel’s Deputy Ambassador to Britain Talya Lador-Fresher at the University of Manchester deteriorated Wednesday into violence when pro-Palestinian protesters stormed at the diplomat in an attempted attack.
The protesters were waiting for Lador-Fresher outside the lecture hall, but this did not deter her from entering as planned. Immediately upon her exit, the protesters lunged at the diplomat, prompting security guards to whisk her back into the hall. Following a consultation on the site, it was decided to escort her out of the premises in a police car.
Second, any police department worth shit would have dealt properly with this:
The deputy ambassador was removed from the hall and into the police vehicle. However, this did not block the protesters, who surrounded the car and climbed on the hood, trying to break the windshield.
They're climbing on a friggin' police car and trying to break the windshield to attack a woman inside; the proper response is either A: police dragging the assholes to jail or B: driving over those in the way, braking to throw the others off, then taking the lady to her destination while other officers arrest the assholes and take them to jail.
Israeli Ambassador to Britain Ron Prosor praised his deputy for her determination and fighting spirit and emphasized that the embassy expects a sweeping denunciation of the event from the local authorities and universities in Britain.
Ooooh, a 'sweeping denunciation', that'll REALLY warn the BTMs, won't it?
