Islamists Place Cause over Character at UCI
When it comes to chutzpah, you've got to hand it to Islamist organizations denouncing the University of California-Irvine (UCI) for its one-year suspension of its Muslim Student Union. A school investigation concluded that the MSU organized disruptions of a February speech by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren and lied about it.
The Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American- Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California on Tuesday blasted UCI, claiming the school's actions would stifle free speech and worsen the quality of life for Muslim students.
The Islamist groups didn't defend or criticize the behavior of the students during Oren's February 8 speech. His remarks were interrupted at least 10 times by students who attacked Oren as a murderer and a war criminal. Instead, they attempted to change the subject.
