UC Irvine Students OPENLY Promotes Hating Jews/ Support Palestinian TERRORISM Campaign

Imagine is you are a Jewish student at UC Irvine and you hear other students chanting”  Long live the Intifada”?  That would be like hearing Sieg Heil—and the Administration does nothing to stop the bigotry, hatred and anti-Semitism on this campus.  The silence of the UCI Chancellor and the other Administrators—along with the known bigot Janet Napolitano—should tell the Jewish and Christian students that government and the campus authorities prefer terrorists to freedom and safety.

I do not have to visit Palestine to find terrorist supporters—I can go visit UC Irvine and the Chancellors office.

““Last night, an incident occurred on campus that we believe crossed the line of civility, prompting me to re-emphasize our position on free speech, safety, and mutual respect,” Mr. Gillman wrote Thursday in a campus-wide email, Campus Reformreported.

“The incident centered on a film-viewing event sponsored by Students Supporting Israel (SSI),” he wrote. “A group of protesters reportedly disrupted the event, blocking exit paths. Participants feared for their safety, calling on our police for assistance.”

SSI Vice President Kevin Brum told Campus Reform that the demonstrators were members of the Muslim Student Union (MSU) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).

Feel safe?  Not on this campus.

Calif. students disrupt pro-Israel event attended by former IDF soldiers: ‘Long live the intifada’

Washington Times,  Jessica Jasmar,  5/20/16

Chancellor Howard Gillman at the University of California, Irvine, has condemned a group of students for disrupting a pro-Israel event attended by former Israel Defense Forces soldiers Wednesday night.

“Last night, an incident occurred on campus that we believe crossed the line of civility, prompting me to re-emphasize our position on free speech, safety, and mutual respect,” Mr. Gillman wrote Thursday in a campus-wide email, Campus Reform reported.

“The incident centered on a film-viewing event sponsored by Students Supporting Israel (SSI),” he wrote. “A group of protesters reportedly disrupted the event, blocking exit paths. Participants feared for their safety, calling on our police for assistance.”

SSI Vice President Kevin Brum told Campus Reform that the demonstrators were members of the Muslim Student Union (MSU) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).

“The film was ‘Beneath the Helmet,’ a film about IDF soldiers with personal interviews that sort of humanizes them,” Mr. Brum said. “One of the campus advisers for Hillel is an Israeli citizen who served in the IDF, so she has former IDF friends, and two of them stopped by. Someone posted that information on Facebook, and SJP and MSU got wind of it.”

Ariana Rowlands, president of the College Republicans UCI chapter, estimated there were about 50 demonstrators total.

    If James Irvine wasn’t such an outrageous Anti-Semite, he would have never allowed the transfer of his land to the UC system for the establishment of UCI (Heh!).
