CODEPINK Activists Interrupt Israeli PM Speech: 'Occupying Lands is Indefensible


Last night at the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated that a return to Israel's 1967 borders would be "indefensible." But he wasn't the only one using that word. Activists from the far-left group CODEPINK decided to crash the speech and shout slogans using the same word.

The group isn't shy to claim responsibility either. A press release on the site Moveoveraipac.org -- which is admittedly the work of CODEPINK -- boasts about the disruptive protest:

The activists are from the Move Over AIPAC coalition led by CODEPINK: Women for Peace.

The protesters, 5 in all, rose one by one, unfurled banners, and chanted slogans. In response to Netanyahu’s claim that returning to the 1967 borders would be “indefensible,” activists called out that various aspects of Israel’s policy are indefensible. They were escorted out by security, but not before they made a highly visible protest against the theft of Palestinian land, the siege of Gaza, denial of the rights of Palestinian refugees, silencing dissent, and destruction of homes and schools.

The group was sure to capture their actions on video:

CODEPINK, by the way, is the same group that was such a fan of democracy in Egypt.

And according to the website, we can probably expect to see more protest videos. The group will be taking to the halls of Congress today during the prime ministers speech at the Capitol.
