UC Irvine Muslim Student Union Appeal Rejected

The Muslim Student Union (MSU) felt that shouting down the Israeli Ambassador while he was giving a scheduled speech last year was part of their right to free speech. The administration of the University of California, Irvine, disagreed, and informed them that the suspension will stand, although shortened to one quarter, as opposed to one year. The MSU will be on probation for 2 years after that.

A commenter at the OC Register noted:
The msu broke the rules when they organized, not a protest, but an attempt to halt the free speech rights of an individual who was invited to speak on campus.

The group had every right to protest outside of the venue...but not to disrupt the lecture or to attempt to shout down the speaker.

What the chancellor did not note is that the msu lied during the investigation. Knowing the rules which they are governed by, they stated that the disruption had not been organized. Emails show that they were lying.

Here is footage from the speech. Note the large group of muslim students, and the raucous cheering at each disruption. As a Southern California Jew myself, I had heard much about anti-semitic activities at UCI, so this did not surprise me. I am only glad that word is finally getting out.

Send them back to the middle east!

I'm with Odie -- let them shout down a Saudi Prince or something back home and watch the heads roll (literally).

Odie, OK.

LL, in Iran, too, student protesters fare badly. Is the MSU protesting the rape and execution of Iranian youth wanting a regime change?

Kid, we just need to keep shining a light on their activities.

I agree and with particular emphasis on how they are trying to assimilate us rather than the other way around.

They need to assimilate or get out.

With all these backward Muslims and their bigotries given such high free speech status til this ruling, it explains a lot why the UC system had been on the decline. Why are we allowing so many obvious anti American and freedom bigots to infest our schools in the first place. This is the same organization that agrees with the head of Hezbolla that having the state of Israel is a blessing because it puts all the jews in one place and saves them from having to hunt them down all over the world.
