The Jury Talks Back

The Definition of Chutzpah – Campus Hate edition

Filed under: Uncategorized — aunursa @ 6:47 pm

The Muslim Student Union at UC Irvine has conducted many virulently anti-Israel and anti-Semitic events over the past several years.  Now the MSU faces a one year suspension (that would be effective September 1st) for deliberately orchestrating the disruption of a speech by Israeli ambassador Michael Oren back in February.  One of the ironies of anti-Semites is the claim that a supposed Israeli Lobby seeks to shut down any criticism of Israel; in fact the disruption of Oren’s speech is just one of hundreds of examples of anti-Zionists seeking to silence Israelis and pro-Zionists who dare to speak out in support of the Jewish state.

The irony was apparently lost on MSU lawyer and anti-Israel activist Reem Salahi.  She declared that the suspension “would create a really dangerous precedent for shutting down dissent.”
