Batsheva protester arrested over anti-Jewish slur

    A man was arrested for racial harassment during a protest against an Israeli dance company in Birmingham on Tuesday evening

    The 41-year-old was apprehended by police outside the Birmingham Hippodrome after using a racial slur about Jews toward another attendee.

    He was part of a group of anti-Israel activists gathered to demonstrate against the first of two shows performed by the Batsheva Ensemble, the youth arm of Israel's acclaimed Batsheva Dance Company.

    Activists also disrupted the performance several times, as has happened on other stops of the tour in Edinburgh, Salford and Brighton, and five were removed by security staff.

    The arrested man was dealt with by way of a community resolution at the wishes of the victim, and was released that evening without charge.
