The Rabbi for Human Rights: Intolerant, Angry and Aggressive by David Collier

...The audience willingly laps up any decontextualised information or misrepresentation of Israel that can be used in the fight against the Jewish State. Some that listen to those like Idit, are pushed over the edge, and they join the mob outside the room at the UCL. Soon they will join those banging on the windows and threatening me.

Why would a Jewish Rabbi, why would any Jewish Rabbi, want to do that to me?
