Anti-Israel activists interrupted a live television broadcast from London with chants calling for the destruction of the Jewish state as Channel 10 correspondent Miri Michaeli attempted to report on a conference late last week.

While Michaeli updated viewers on a speech from Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog at the London School of Economics (LSE) on Friday, two protesters stood up close alongside her holding up large Palestinian flags and aggressively chanting “free free Palestine” and “from the river to the sea Palestine will be free.”

An LSE student who uploaded footage of the incident on Facebook applauded the journalist for standing her ground.

“So following Isaac Herzog’s excellent speech at LSE, this poor but admittedly tough news anchor from Channel 10 withstood disgraceful intimidation from two men surrounding her without even flinching,” the student wrote. “Israeli women are not to be messed with. Respect.”

Israel Closes West Bank, Gaza Strip for Rosh Hashanah

The IDF announced on Tuesday that it will put in place a closure of the West Bank and Gaza Strip...

On Friday, Michaeli shared the raw footage on her own Facebook page commenting, “I’m tough!”

The incident was not the first time Michaeli has experienced hostility as an Israeli reporting from the streets of Europe. In April, she faced antisemitic abuse from a group of men as she prepared to broadcast a report from outside the Gare du Nord train station in Paris.

“My hands are shaking three weeks later when I remember the things they said,” Michaeli recalled in a Facebook post about the incident. “I was standing in the street not bothering anyone, and I got vigorously cursed (along with aggressive hand motions) — and threatened.”

    You never hear of Jewish people harassing a meeting of Muslims, do you. But if Jews ever do this, what a major headline the international publicity of the lefty media will make of it. Any objective person can see the difference in the behavior of Islamists who settle in America and make demands that their new country should accommodate their way of life. They are outspoken and there is no hesitance, as if it is coming to them. Compare that with the Jews who respect the right, even of their enemies to speak without harassment. The problem is that anti-semites dismiss logic and reason, so the only way to solve the problem is if there are more of us right thinking people than them.

      It is too late for the UK! The Black Veil of Islam is about to cover her up. The Obituary will read-They let too many Muslims into their country and the UK died from their hate for their institutions and people! RIP UK,you now are about to fall into the Dark Ages of reason.Get ready for your new law,Sharia.

    Those who intimidated this very beautiful and brave young women are fascists and should have been arrested. Michaeli you resisted evil. How disgusting is Europe now? I live in the UK and am ashamed of the way it has sold out to fascist religious/political tyrants aka Islamists. Unis, mainstream media, intelligentsia, political elites and ordinary people have lined themselves up with the new Nazis, history will not judge them kindly. The world does not need another Islamic state that is for sure but we do need the one Jewish country Israel.

  • Lauren Goldman

    Disgusting pigs. Go back to shtupping goats and leave the streets to people.

  • Typical of Arabs – threaten a lone woman (as long as there’s a mob of them – the Arabs, I mean). Makes them feel brave & honourable.

  • judithg

    london is a dirty toilet stuffed up with muslim crap. time for a mercy flush.

  • Jarred

    The Religion of Peace,peacefully protesting and trying to intimidate and silence a woman…….Shameless and disgusting behavior….

  • elaine hemmingway

    Shame,Gestapo tactics should be the heading on any of these incidents and by the way, were they by any chance Muslims? How come this is never addressed?Of course they were, and if they weren’t, it was manipulated by Muslims.

    I want to see my comment some where

  • noahnoah

    Islam isn’t capable in producing any intellect, or modern thought.
    This is the best example of islamic primitive Neanderthals.
    COWARDLY bullying attacks.
    They should travel to Syria and join a side, any side, and quickly get eliminated.

    Inshallah

    Europe murdered and expelled its Jews and welcomed to muslim arabs. Gezundheit.

  • art

    Jews better wake up!! Time to stop begging for peace. Time for a united Israeli gov. Livni Herzpg should give up their opposition and stand against the Jew haters.

  • Ian Bersten

    Some Palestinians should have their degrees after their names – BUM – Bad uncouth manners

  • Elliott

    A brilliant public display of boorish ignorance by the pea-brained brownshirts of the Euro anti-semitic crowd.

  • Robert Sklar

    The proper response, of course, is to pay no attention Palestinian demands and continue to deepen your Jewish experiences and do what is best for Israel

  • The James Brady Bunch

    Why does Channel 10 send her out without a bodyguard or two? One of these times she could get attacked by the kind of trash who are filling up the filthy streets of London. How about a description of the excrement who harassed her???

    • Charles Martel

      Too bad she could not slap the stupid out of these people.
      Oh I forgot they were born that way.Islam is a backward religion that keeps slipping into gross ignorance.
