Penn State Violence and Intimidation directed towards Israel activists

Its not just California campuses. Another in a series of documented attacks on students that dare support Israel on campus. From the Collegian

A 10-by-10-foot sign drew conflict and crowds of more than 50 people outside the HUB-Robeson Center Thursday afternoon.

The sign, part of a demonstration by the Penn State chapter of Young Americans for Freedom, was titled “The Palestinian Wall of Lies.” It featured two large silhouettes of men with guns and outlined 10 “lies” the group believes Palestinians propagate.

YAF President Samuel Settle led the demonstration, handing out pamphlets and attempting to strike up conversation with passersby.

“Many people have hatred for Israel and that’s why this is important,” Settle (junior-political science and history) said. “People need to look at the facts.”


The Penn State students were able to document the ignorance, arrogance and abuse of the other students- and filmed a student, unable to dispute the factss on the display, storming away screaming obscentities and kicking over a box of literature.

i don't know what ticks me off about this video more, the guy who lost his cool or that idiot student at the end that starts blaming the pro-Israel advocates for getting that guy bent out of shape. so typical, she must be a berkeley transplant.

by the way, although the irritable guy who was being interviewed seemed flustered by the facts in the case it's clear that he got a "kick" out of the experience.
