Another protester gets in

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Just like during Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech last night, the speech by Quartet Representative to the Middle East Tony Blair was interrupted Tuesday morning by a protester screaming and holding a sign. In this release, Code Pink takes credit for the Netanyahu interruptions, and considering the Blair protester was holding a pink sign, she presumably was affiliated with Code Pink as well. The most interesting part of the release , though, is the action the group has planned for this afternoon:

Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 23, at noon CODEPINK is planning to build a settlement (including homes and beds) inside Senator Schumer’s and Senator Lieberman’s offices (Hart Senate Building, offices 313 and 706).

Inside their offices? Don’t see that happening. And does the security checkpoint at the Hart Senate Office Building allow you to bring mattresses into the building?
