Violent Anti-Israel Protesters Banned From King’s College, London

The violent anti-Israel protesters who disrupted an Israel Society event at King’s College, London last month have been banned from the campus after it was concluded they “crossed the line” in carrying out their demonstration.

As Breitbart London reported, the event descended into chaos and dozens of police were deployed after the anti-Israel thugs smashed windows, threw chairs, set off fire alarms and “assaulted” a speaker on January 19. No arrests were made.

Over 100 students had turned up to hear Ami Ayalon, the former head of Israel’s secret service, speak at the gathering organised by KCL Israel Society and LSE Israel Society. However, Mr Aylon’s talk was disrupted and then abandoned because of the actions of around 60 members of the ‘Action Palestine’ group.

“As soon as the doors shut the frustrated anti-Israel activists pounded the doors and the windows looking into the talk,” explained eye witness Richard Millett. Protesters waved Palestinian flags and shouted, “Free Palestine!” and “F*ck Israel!”

King’s College London Student Union (KCLSU) told Jewish News after the incident:  “We strongly support free speech- student groups should be able to host external speakers.. However, we don’t support violent action taking place, especially around our students, and we don’t support action leading to an approved event closing early.

King’s subsequently launched what it called a “swift and comprehensive investigation” into the events of the night. Its findings concluded that the disruption had been intended. The incident will now be referred to a student disciplinary committee.
