Tzipi Livni insulted by badly educated Harvard student despite her leftism

Livni's just learned that, no matter how negative her stand on Israel happens to be, it won't perturb any anti-semites from acting disgustingly:
A student at Harvard Law School provoked outrage after asking a visiting Jewish Israeli politician why she was “so smelly.” The student’s identity remains unknown despite using the slur in a public forum.

Tzipi Livni is a former Israeli foreign minister and is currently a part of the center-left Zionist Union in the Israeli Knesset. She is generally regarded as the most powerful woman in Israel, and is one of the most important figures in the push for a two-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Livni appeared at Harvard Law last Thursday for a panel discussion about the Palestinian peace process, but when the time came for questions from the audience, things went in a stinky direction.

A student in the back piped up to ask Livni an important question: Why exactly did she smell so bad?

“OK, my question is for Tzipi Livni, um, how is it that you are so smelly?” the student asked, according to a transcript of the event released Wednesday. When the panel replied with confused looks, the student clarified exactly what he meant: “Oh, it’s regarding your odor.”

“I’m not sure I understand the question,” the event moderator replied.

“I’m question (sic) about the odor of Tzipi Livni, very smelly, and I was just wondering,” the student said.

Insults deriding Jewish people as smelly or otherwise possessing a unique odor are quite old, and the notion was included in anti-Semitic propaganda used by the Nazis.
The student supposedly apologized, but said his intention was to insult Livni personally. And:
Despite apologizing for invoking the stereotype, at no point does the student ever apologize for asking a pointless, rude question of Livni during the question and answer portion of the event.
In the end, this only demonstrates how Israeli leftists are no more immune to nasty slurs than rightists are. It also shows how badly educated a certain segment of society is, and lacks manners, courtesy and understanding why profanity is also a reprehensible form of behavior.
