Palestinian student interrupting Obama’s speech detained by zionist forces


Nazareth- Israeli forces detained Rabee’ Eid, 24, a student at Haifa University after he interrupted US president Obama while speaking to hundreds of Israeli students and academics in occupied Jerusalem on Thursday.

Did you come here for peace? Or to give ‘Israel’ more weapons to kill the Palestinian people?? Rabee’ asked. “Who killed Rachel Corrie? Rachel Corrie was killed with your money and your weapons,” he said in reference to the American peace activist who was killed by the Israeli occupation in Gaza during her attempt to stop an Israeli Bulldozer from demolishing Palestinian home.

Rabee’s statements came despite the Israeli strict measures, where they selected a number of students to attend the speech by making them sign an obligation not to cause any inconvenience in the hall during the speech.

“The state must be a state for all its citizens, not a state for the Jewish people, he continued, “Have you seen the apartheid wall on your way?, There are in this room Palestinians, this state must be for all its citizens, not state of the Jewish people,” he said in response to Obama’s statements on a Jewish state.

Israeli security forces immediately attacked Eid and took him violently outside the hall, while Obama commented by saying “You know, I have to say we actually arranged for that because it made me feel at home,” Obama said, laughing. “I wouldn’t feel comfortable if I didn’t have at least one heckler,” he added.

Rabee Eid is a Palestinian student from a village in Galilee.
