I used to be a scholar at UCLA once I was Israel’s overseas minister Abba Eban He got here to city. It was November 12, 1970, and he had arrived to present a speech about Israel’s conflicts with its neighbors. Together with 1000’s of different college students keen to listen to him, I strolled into Pauley Pavilion, one of many largest venues on campus.
On the best way, my mates and I handed a small group of anti-Israel protesters, a various group I’ve seen on campus over the previous 12 months: three Libyan trade college students, a middle-aged German girl and some members of the Group of Islamic Cooperation. College students for a Democratic Society, an extremist group.
