ZOA Letter to UCI Chancellor

This week we posted a letter written by the AMCHA Initiative to UC Irvine Chancellor Howard Gillman in response to the May 10 disruption of a pro-Israel event by Students in Justine in Palestine and others. Below is a letter in the same vein written by the Zionist Organization of America.

You will note in the linked video in the letter that the following day, the same person who led the disruption used the words, "disrupt" and "shut down" to describe the  previous night's incident as well as the May 18, 2016 disruption of a pro-Israel event on campus. It puts the lie to attempts to describe both events as "peaceful protests".

UC Irvine now has an opportunity to lead the rest of the nation's universities by kicking SJP off campus-for good. This is way overdue. This is a national problem concerning a national organization that has no respect for the free speech rights of others. SJP has forfeited the right to be on the UCI campus-or any other campus.
