Manchester Israel-Palestine Forum: We now have the problem with intimidation of pro-Israeli viewpoints relatively under control

Remember the attack on Talya Lador-Fresher? Some Jewish activists at Manchester University feel that as a result of coverage in the Jewish and Israeli press (the only coverage there was) "a marginal event overshadow[ed] positive developments." According to Marco Schneebalg (guest posting at Harry's Place):
After the events, the Jewish Chronicle, Britain’s main Jewish weekly, and all of the big Israeli newspapers reported the attack in a very alarmist tone, making no further investigation on the matter. All the things reported in the articles are true. However, the talk went on quite peacefully and I feel that the situation in Manchester University is easing rather than getting more tense.
The rest is on the same vein, but you should enjoy the comments. You should also enjoy the latest Haveil Havalim.
