Following yesterday’s arrival of “Breaking The Silence” at Tel Hai College, located near the city of Kiryat Shmonah, one enterprising pizzeria owner from the town promised a free pizza to anyone who interfered with the extremist left wing organization.

Eran Bitton posted on the internet that he would give a free pizza to any student who photographs or films himself interrupting or interfering with Breaking the Silence's lecture at the college. “Call me and the pizza is on the way," wrote Bitton. 

In an interview with Channel 20, Bitton said “the college did not notify anyone that the organization was coming to give a lecture. They did it quietly, and underhandedly. That is what really upset us. I was furious, so I said that anyone who goes and interferes will get a free pizza.”

Bitton reported that there was a lot of interests generated and that a demonstration involving 300-400 people was held outside the college to protest the lecture.

People called Bitton to tell him that they were going to protest, but that they didn’t want the pizza. They were going to protest for the betterment of the country and to remove these people from their town and college.

“We don’t want this organization that deals with brainwashing and lies in Israel at all,” they told Bitton.

When asked how the day after the protest felt, Bitton said; “We shipped out a lot of pizza, and that is one of the greatest feelings in the world. People are patting themselves on the back.”

Bitton went one step further, giving the unclaimed pizzas to soldiers who are serving in the area, and have swelled in numbers due to the current tension on both the Lebanese and Syrian borders.
