Scuffles erupted between New Zealand police and anti-Israel demonstrators who were protesting a landmark visit by Knesset Speaker Ruby Rivlin. About 25 protesters, mostly from pro-Palestinian and socialist student groups, were met Saturday night by a strong police presence outside the Auckland Hebrew Congregation, where Rivlin was giving the keynote address to 250 members of the Jewish community.
