Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, spoke at Columbia University on Tuesday and was met with waves of student protestors who silenced him seven times.

Even before the event began dozens of pro-Palestinian protestors stood outside chanting, “Danny Danon you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide.”

Once inside things didn’t calm down, more pro-Palestinian students interrupted Danon screaming, “We’ll be free from the river to the sea, Palestine!”

They continued their protest throughout the event with additional chants including “stop their hate, Israel is a terrorist state” and “one, two, three, four, occupation no more! Five, six, seven, eight, Israel is an apartheid state!”

It’s worth noting that former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, one of the world’s leading Holocaust deniers, spoke at Columbia in 2007 and was not interrupted once.
