And here is an AP report on the protest:
Dana Milbank, for one, wasn't too impressed with Netanyahu's response. From the Washington Post website:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu needs a mulligan after his speech to the Jewish Federation in New Orleans on Monday. He was interrupted by the heckling of Jewish peace activists. But the problem was his response: Instead of brushing it off, he said the accusers believed that "Israel is guilty until proven guilty," adding: "The greatest success of our detractors is when Jews start believing that themselves. We've seen that today."
On the positive side, one audience member distinguished himself by picking up a protest banner left behind by the demonstrators and ripping it with his teeth.
The JTA also reports:
After the final protestor stood up and opened a banner reading, “Young Jews say the loyalty oath delegitimizes Israel,” Jeff Shapira from San Antonio grabbed her from behind and put her in a choke hold, dragging her backwards towards the floor.
When asked later if he had ever put a woman in a choke hold, he replied, “Not really. No. I really did not know what was going to happen, I wanted to keep her in check. I was trying to help.”
