This the same creep who ‘moderated’ the Finnish Institute International Affairs seminar with visiting Israeli guest speaker, Ben-Dror Yemini, laughing at, and mocking him with someone (or more people) in the audience while he was speaking at the dais at the University of Helsinki.
Given his record of animosity and outright hostility towards the Jewish state of Israel, it was extremely galling for me to see this jerk invited to the Israeli Ambassador’s official residence where were I was attending an official function. I remained polite and did not purposefully trip myself to spill my red wine all over his suit and tie.
