Students and activists launched the first in a series of protests opposing an upcoming visit by a convicted Hezbollah terrorist to Tel Aviv University.

The protest was jointly organized by several student groups - spanning Israel's wide political spectrum - who are outraged at the invitation to Mohammed Canaana, who is due to speak on campus tomorrow.

Arutz Sheva spoke to one of the organizers, Yanki Gottelf, a student leader for the Jewish Home (Bayit Yehudi) party.

Gottelf called on donors of the university to pull their funds, accusing the institution of "supporting terrorism".

"There are a lot of other universities and academic institutions in Israel," he said.

The loud but peaceful demonstration ended with the singing of Israel's national anthem, Hatikva.
