Hundreds of pro-Palestinian students rallied outside Cooper Union’s library in New York City in support of recent Palestinian uprisings. The rally was specifically held to oppose Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the library and fulfill the students’ demands for rights of the Palestinian people. The rally was met with tension as Jewish students also tried to make their presence known by taunting the protesters. The event eventually ended peacefully, but highlighted the tense relationship between Jewish and Palestinian students at Cooper Union.
