Hat tip Campus Reform
Thanks to documentation by Ariana Rowlands of UC Irvine's College Republicans, Campus Reform has posted more details and an additional video of the asinine disruption of a pro-Israel event at UC Irvine last night.
According to this account, campus police removed the pro-Israel students from their own event for their own protection rather than remove the protesters from Students for Justice in Palestine. If true, seems to me the UCIPD got it backwards.
I have come to the conclusion that it is going to take a lawsuit to get the University of California to take appropriate measures to protect its Jewish students on campus. Letters and complaints have not worked. The recent UC regents statement of principles on intolerance is not working. It is time to bring in the lawyers. If and when that happens, I have about ten years of documentation and eyewitness testimony to give them. In addition, if it is true that these protesters blocked the Jewish students from leaving, the appropriate authorities should investigate as to whether it was a case of false imprisonment.
