Simcha Rothman loses temper, confronts protesters in New York | JPost |

According to a statement from the anti-government protest groups, the protester that was assaulted is a lawyer and graduate student at Columbia University and intends on filing assault charges against Rothman.

    "Even Rothman's violence will not break our resolve and the historic protest will only gain momentum," the protester in question said. "We stand here in solidarity and support with our families and friends in Israel who are steadfastly defending Israeli democracy."

Rothman's patience with protesters runs out

Last Sunday, Rothman was met with hundreds of protesters as he arrived at Tel Aviv University for a conference he was scheduled to speak at.

While he was inside the conference, demonstrators plastered his car with stickers representing various anti-government protest movements, with one attendee sharing a short video of the adorned car with the caption: "Cars of the thieving government."

However, protesters waited for him inside as well, and Rothman briefly turned his attention to them, accusing them of being "unable to hear viewpoints that are not their own."

"When your argument is weak, you raise your voice," he continued. "You don't have the ability to deal with things intellectually so you deal with it by bullying. You are limited. You don't have intellectual capacity so you shout."
