Israeli Regime’s UK Ambassador Evacuated from Event amid Protests

Israeli Regime’s UK Ambassador Evacuated from Event amid Protests

Alwaght- Tzipi Hotovely, Israeli regime's Ambassador the UK was evacuated under heavy security from an event at the London School of Economics on Tuesday evening amid a large protest by pro-Palestinian activists against her presence.

Video from the scene showed security guards rushing Hotovely, who was clutching a bouquet of flowers, into a vehicle, while others tried to fend off a group of jeering activists, who chanted, “Aren’t you ashamed?”

Hotovely had been invited by the prestigious university’s student union to take part in a debate forum.

The move drew widespread opposition from pro-Palestinian and other groups on campus for “platforming racism.” The protesters prevented Hotovely from taking part.

The protests specifically targeted Hotovely, saying that she has “advocated for settler colonialism, engaged in Islamophobic rhetoric and has perpetuated anti-Palestinian racism.”

Top of Form

Hotovely has been a controversial pick for ambassador in the UK since taking up the post last year.

She is a member of former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party and was appointed by him to the post after serving as settlements minister. The move drew a petition by left-wing British Jews who called on their government to reject her as ambassador.

“Hotovely has an appalling record of racist and inflammatory behavior from throughout her political career,” last year’s petition read. “As British Jews we are clear: Tzipi Hotovely’s values and politics have no place in the UK. It is crucial that the UK government sends a message that her views are unacceptable, and rejects her nomination as ambassador.”

Hotovely, who also served as deputy foreign minister between 2015 and 2020, is a staunch supporter of Israeli regime’s illegal settlement movement and a vehement opponent of the two-state solution. She has also advocated for a unilateral Israeli annexation of the occupied West Bank, something the British government has repeatedly rejected as a blatant violation of international law.
