Protesters outraged by BK College anti-Israel forum (1/31/13)

BROOKLYN - Protesters at Brooklyn College rallied against a pro-Palestinian forum scheduled to be held on the campus next week.

The demonstrators say the lecture featuring two people from an anti-Israel group is egregious and portrays the school as being supportive of radicalism.

Students were mixed on the issue. Some say they favor divergent opinions while others say there is no excuse for hatred.

College officials say their campus is very diverse, which is why they decided to go ahead with the event. It will be held Feb. 7 with a question and answer period to follow.
