(ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS) Enraged alumni of Yeshiva University’s Cardozo School of Law have threatened to physically block Jimmy Carter from entering the school, where he is due to receive a peace award on Wednesday.

Daniel Rubin, 62, told the Jewish Daily Forward that about a dozen former alumni are planning an act of civil disobedience to prevent Carter from picking up the InternationalAdvocate for Peace Award, given annually by Cardozo’s Journal of Conflict Resolution.

Rubin said former alumni “would use their knowledge of the building layout to outmaneuver any attempts to stop them.”

“Mr. Carter ain’t going to get anywhere,” he said. “There’s no reason for a school that has any sense of Jewish integrity to have a guy like that around.”
