VIDEO: President Obama Gets Standing Ovation After Responding to Heckler During Israel Speech
President Obama received a standing ovation from the crowd when he responded to a protester who began heckling him and shouting during a speech in Jerusalem on Thursday. According to a Fox News producer, the man who interrupted the speech is Rabee Eid, a 24-year-old Palestinian with Israeli citizenship. The producer reports that Eid shouted, "Obama, you are only here to support the Israelis. If you care about the Palestinians, what about the separation wall, what about Rachel Corrie?"
When the shouting ceased, the commander in chief stopped the crowd from boo-ing the protester, saying that it's all a part of the "lively debate that we talked about. This is good."
