Girl spits at MK Tibi during university debate

Knesset Member Ahmad Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al) was assaulted by students during a debate held between him and MK Arieh Eldad (Otzma LeYisrael) at the Bar-Ilan University. Arab students claim that at least one girl, around the age of 16, spat at the MK. Eldad said that as far as he was aware one of the students "poured some water" over Tibi. Policemen and university security guards arrived at the scene.

Guards escorted Tibi through a side room for his protection, after an Arab student apparently tried to assault another student and was removed from the debate hall. Several students yelled at Tibi: "You're a child murderer, go to Gaza, go to Syria. That's the place for you." Arab students claimed that no less than three youths spat at the MK.

A Bar-Ilan student testified that "an Arab student was removed by force from the hall to loud yells. By the end of the debate a young girl, not a student, spat at Tibi. Security guards grabbed her and a policeman wrote a report." Another student present at the debate confirmed the story. "I don't know if she hit him, but she definitely spat at him. The Bar Ilan security guard grabbed her, took her aside and then cleared the hall."


Tibi said he was called a "terrorist," and reported that guards escorted him to a side room. The police reported that the incident "ended with no unusual events and arrests."


meanwhile in the US 11 students were arrested and tried for interrupting Micheal Oren

1. Suspicion: Girl who spat on Tibi sprayed anti-Christian slogans

Jerusalem Police arrest two girls suspected of spray-painting 'Jesus is a son of a bitch' on wall surrounding Monastery of the Cross in capital; one of the suspects spat on Arab MK following heated debate at Bar-Ilan University in December



"Jerusalem District police arrested on Sunday two young girls on suspicion that they spray-pained anti-Christian slogans on a monastery and damaging vehicles in the capital last month.

The 17-year-old suspected spat on Arab Knesset Member Ahmad Tibi after a heated political debate (United Arab List-Ta'al) at Bar-Ilan University in late December, during the election race. Her remand was extended until Thursday."


"The slogans, including "Jesus is a son of a bitch," were discovered in mid-December on the wall surrounding the Monastery of the Cross in Jerusalem's Emek HaMatsleva. The tries of three vehicles that were parked in the area were punctured, and the words "Happy Hanukkah, victory for the Maccabees" were spray-pained on one of them."
