Angry Activists at Columbia U Protest ‘Indigenous Peoples’ Event Highlighting Historical Jewish Ties to Israel, by Lea Speyer
Activists at Columbia University staged a walkout at an event Tuesday evening — at which The Algemeiner was present — as a...

SSI founder Ilan Sinelnikov, who had taken a last-minute flight from Minneapolis to New York in a show of solidarity with the event, told The Algemeiner, “The protesters sat through two speakers, a Yazidi and an Assyrian, but when the Jew with Yemenite origin began to present, they got up and left. Once again, anti-Israel students have shown they are not willing to hear someone who might challenge their narrative.”

He added that though the demonstrators “behaved more respectfully than some on other campuses, they still showed a lack of respect for basic freedom of opinion.”

Protesters refused to speak with The Algemeiner, and when one began explaining why he had decided to demonstrate against the event, his friends whispered, “Don’t talk to [The Algemeiner reporter].”

Despite the commotion, Rochman said he considers “Indigenous People Unite” to have been a success — a sentiment echoed by Jewish and pro-Israel students from other schools in the city who came to participate in it. One New York University student called it “an exciting evening,” and Sinelnikov said he hopes “to bring a similar program to every campus across the country.”

“What happened at Columbia is an event for the books,” he said. “Today we started winning back our story and can move forward in challenging anti-Israel groups and take back our truth on campuses.”
