Protester says man tried to hit camera
A man entering the Beth Israel Congregation in Ann Arbor was arrested on an assault charge Saturday after a confrontation with a pro-Palestinian protester, Ann Arbor Police said.
Sgt. Matt Lige would not provide details of the incident, but said it happened in view of a police officer and that the person was arrested. Lige said the person was released pending authorization of charges from the city attorney.
The assault allegedly happened outside the synagogue at 2000 Washtenaw Ave., where pro-Palestinian protesters have conducted regular protests for three years regarding Middle East issues.
One of the protesters, Henry Herskovitz, a member of the Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends, said he witnessed the incident Saturday. Herskovitz said a man approached a member of his group who was taking pictures of people. The man said he didn't want to have his picture taken and tried to hit the camera out of the protester's hands.
Jeff Levin, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Washtenaw County, declined to comment.
