September 26, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a case that came to be known as that of the "Irvine 11," an Orange County jury has found 10 of the 11 defendants guilty of disrupting a February 2010 speech by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren. Their sentencing amounted to a slap-on-the-wrist at best, 56 hrs of community service and two years of a very loose form of probation.
Throttling of free speech by radical Muslim college students has become a familiar and accepted tactic on most major American campuses, which are now often serving as test beds for the type of civilizational jihad advocated by the Muslim Brotherhood and its numerous American front groups.
Understandably this stidently anti-democratic and bigoted mindset has made UC Irvine a particularly unfriendly campus for Jewish students who constantly complain of Muslim thuggery, racial and religious slurs and other forms of harassment. The campus features a yearly "anti-apartheid" week during which Israel and Jews are pilloried.
"...There, on the campus of the University of California at Irvine, Jewish students were physically and verbally harassed, threatened, shoved, stalked, and targeted by rock-throwing groups and individuals. Jewish property was defaced with swastikas, and a Holocaust memorial was vandalized. Signs were posted on campus showing a Star of David dripping with blood. Jews were chastised for arrogance by public speakers whose appearance at the institution was subsidized by the university. They were called "dirty Jew" and "fucking Jew," told to "go back to Russia" and "burn in hell," and heard other students and visitors to the campus urge one another to "slaughter the Jews." One Jewish student who wore a pin bearing the flags of the United States and Israel was told to "take off that pin or we'll beat your ass." Another was told, "Jewish students are the plague of mankind" and "Jews should be finished off in the ovens."

Stoking this particular incident was UC Irvine's notorious Muslim Student Union which was suspended for a year and put on probation for a similar period because of its history of this type of bullying behavior.
"During the trial, prosecutor Dan Wagner told jurors the students infringed upon the rights of 700 people who had gone to the Irvine campus to hear Oren. He showed video footage of university officials pleading with students to stop interrupting the diplomat's speech and emails sent among members of UC Irvine's Muslim Student Union planning the disruption and calculating who was willing to get arrested."

Though it calls itself the Muslim Student Union, its actions seem to be in lockstep with those of the national Muslim Students Association [MSA], of which it is reportedly an affiliate. [see, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_Students'_Association] The MSA is a known Muslim Brotherhood front group.
"The Muslim Students Association (MSA) of the United States and Canada was incorporated in January 1963 when members of the Muslim Brotherhood came together at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with the goal of 'spreading Islam as students in North America.'"

Even with such a brief overview it becomes clear that justice in this case was assaulted rather than served, allowing UC Irvine's MSU to once again commence its psychological reign of terror upon its reestablishment on this campus.
