A pro-Palestine protest during a speech by pro-Israel American actor Seinfeld

Students also chanted “Free Free Palestine” while protesting against Jerry Seinfeld

During the speech of the pro-Israel American comedian and actor Seinfeld, the students of the American university walked out in strong protest in support of Palestine.

A video of the incident also surfaced on social media, in which dozens of students can be seen walking out of Duke University’s graduation ceremony.

The students also chanted “Free Free Palestine” while protesting against Jerry Seinfeld. Students also waved Palestinian flags at the event held at the University of North Carolina’s football stadium. Some of the students among the protesters also wore Palestinian headscarves, a symbol of solidarity with the Palestinian cause.

Despite the martyrdom of thousands of Palestinian children in the Gaza war, actor Seinfeld says he will always stand with Israel and the Jews. The actor was also given an honorary degree by Duke University and given the opportunity to give a speech, much to the dismay of the students.

“We understand the feelings of our community and respect everyone’s right to peaceful expression,” Duke spokesman Frank Trumbull said in a statement.

It should be noted that student protests against Israel have shaken American universities. Students are demanding that their universities sever ties with companies that supply arms to Israel.
