UCI Muslim Student Union's 'Israeli Apartheid Week'

MSM coverage at O.C. Register, "Speaker denounces Zionism in UCI protest."

Videos below via Pamela Geller, "'You Jews!' 'You're the New Nazis!'- Malik Ali at UC Irvine," and Gary Fouse, "Day 4 of Hate Week at UC-Irvine":
I am very disappointed that Chancellor Michael Drake did not come out --- especially today --- and see and hear for himself what is going on on his campus especially in light of all the controversy that has given his university a very negative reputation when it comes to this issue. I would have hoped that Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, who continues to deny anti-Semitism at UCI, would have come out and listened to Ali. Ditto for Vice Chancellor Manuel Gomez-wherever he was.

With the help of community activists, we prevailed during Israel Apartheid Week. The sight of hundreds of people carrying posters and Israeli and American flags blew them away. Many of their speakers like Norm Finkelstein, were made to look like fools.

Now the MSU has finally been suspended. A couple of major Jewish organizations are taking credit, but more than anything, it was community involvement.
