As protesters accost Barkat in Boston, sides accuse each other of violence

Footage is published of an incident in which Israeli anti-government protesters accost and try to get near Economy Minister Nir Barkat while chanting “Shame!” in the corridor of a hotel in Boston during the latter’s visit to the United States, before security guards push one of them to the ground.

While Barkat’s office hails his security team for “preventing physical harm to an Israeli government minister,” the protest movement accuses the guards of “violently attacking” protesters who were merely trying to protest the government’s judicial overhaul.
