Drop charges against 'Irvine 11,' Jewish faculty urges

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/education/article/drop_charges_against_irvine_11_jewish_faculty_urges_20110309

Thirty University of California Jewish studies faculty members asked the Orange County district attorney to drop criminal charges against 11 Muslim students. The faculty members, from seven University of California campuses, are the second Jewish group to come out in support of the students, who have been charged with disrupting a February 2010 speech by Israeli U.S. Ambassador Michael Oren at the University of California, Irvine. The Jewish Voice for Peace organization also supports dropping charges against the students.
