A number of Arab students who support the hostile Balad, Ra'am Ta'al and Hadash parties interrupted Member of Knesset Michael Ben-Ari, Monday morning, during a lecture at the University of Haifa. Doctor Ben-Ari had presented data on the threat of an Arab state within Israel's borders, called Member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi (Balad) a terrorist for the things she has said and her participation in Turkish ship Mavi Marmara's attempt to break the Gaza naval blockade, and presented figures on illegal construction in the Arab sector.
A student from the Musmus local council area said to Ben-Ari that he would use his own body to stop Ben-Ari from entering Musmus, where Ben-Ari wants to march, later this week. Ben-Ari countered by saying that because of Israeli sovereignty he could march in Musmus as he has in Umm Al-Fahm and that he was not afraid of the student's bullying. He closed his response by saying, "We'll meet in Musmus."
