US event to polish Israel's face turns into protest against it

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- An Israeli student symposium was organized recently in a US university to improve Israel's tarnished image suddenly turned into a rally in support of the Palestinian people and the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to Jerusalem Post newspaper on Monday, a group of Jewish students dubbing itself as "stand with us" from Davis university in California invited two Zionist figures, an Israeli soldier and a Druze woman, to give speeches in support of Israel and its policies, but both of them were interrupted by the audience and more than 40 attendees started to leave the hall.

More than half of the audience chanted slogans against Israel and some of them waved Palestinian flags. Questions like "How many women have you raped?" and "How many children have you killed?" were loudly heard denoting Israel's crimes against the Palestinians.

The protestors also demanded an end to Gaza siege and to prosecute Israel's war criminals. The chants lasted for about 15 minutes.

The organizers of the symposium called in the police to stop these chants, but they refused to quell the protestors and decided to terminate the event.
