Hotovely had been invited by the LSE's student union to take part in a debate, sparking controversy, as pro-Palestine groups at the school accused the student union of giving a platform to racism.
The Israeli occupation's ambassador is a member of Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party and is a supporter of the occupation's settler colonialist practices. She has also used Islamophic rhetoric on numerous occasions.
No evidence to back up Israeli claims
The occupation has also recently designated 6 Palestinian NGOs as "terrorist organizations," sparking condemnation from various human rights groups and EU countries.
Five European members of the UN Security Council revealed Tuesday their serious concerns over the Israeli move. France, Estonia, Ireland, Norway, and Albania released a joint statement on the matter.
"Israel" has failed to provide evidence to convince European officials that the 6 NGOs were linked to the PFLP or "violent activities", as they claimed.
