Jewish students speak out at UC Irvine


Two years ago I wrote a story about the treatment of Israel at UC Irvine, UCLA and a few other campuses. A number of academics criticized the piece as an unproductive re-hash of old hash. Since then things have only gotten worse at UCLA and UCI, particularly UCI, where Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren was prevented from speaking last month.

The UCI student government recently passed a resolution supporting the members of the Muslim Student Union who prevented Oren from speaking and criticizing the university for punishing the protesting students. At the student government public hearing, a few Jewish student leaders spoke out.
