A Palestinian Authority official stormed out of a Boycott Israel conference in Bethlehem after a heckler insulted PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas – and was hospitalized for his insults.

“Jawad Naji was speaking at the ‘Fourth National Conference for the boycott of Israeli goods,’ held at Bethlehem University, when a member of the audience, Nizar Banat, shouted insults at the president and the PLO,” the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency reported.

After Naji left the conference room, others in the audience joined security personnel to assault Banat, who was hospitalized for bruises to his head and legs.
