After reportedly assuring Rabbi Shmuely Boteach they would not disrupt an event with Benjamin Netanyahu’s son, members of the virulently anti-Israel group Code Pink sent the talk into chaos.
Rabbi Shmuely Boteach is a well-known figure in the Jewish community and wider world, who is also a passionate defender of the State of Israel.
During this event, he was set to interview Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s son, Yair. According to a description of the event published by Jewish Press, members of the virulently anti-Israel group Code Pink told the rabbi they wanted to attend the talk peacefully, and assured him that they would respect the decorum of the event.

When they Code Pink activists went back on the word and busting into the hall and hollering at Netanyahu’s son, Rabbi Boteach gave them a lesson in ethics and keeping promises!
