UCI Could Suspend Muslim Student Union for Disrupting Speech

Hosted by

On February 8 of this year, Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren was trying to make a speech at UC Irvine.  He was interrupted by a student, who was escorted out of the room — to be replaced by another, who interrupted again. Finally, 11 students from UC Irvine and UC Riverside were arrested.  Now, UC Irvine officials have recommended a one-year ban of the Muslim Student Union -- not because of the disruptions alone, but because MSU members denied they had organized them in advance.
