Tensions in the Orange County Jewish community are high following a UC Irvine talk by George S. Rishmawi, co-founder of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM). The talk triggered a barrage of letters from various divisions of the Jewish community, which in turn lead to the unusually high internal fractiousness.
ISM is a well-organized anti-Israel movement purporting to be a non-violent initiative, despite demonstrated support for the late Yasser Arafat and ISM members assistance to known terrorists.
Israel banned ISM foreign activists in April of 2003, following a terror attack perpetrated by British Muslims at a pub in Tel Aviv.
Rishmawi, who spoke on November 22, was sponsored by the Olive Tree Initiative (OTI) at UCI, whose stated goal is to promote dialogue and discussion regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict. Moreover, the UCI Hillel president promoted the event on Facebook.

I thought it was going to be am Obama praise meeting. If the Dems dug up Arafat’s bones and put a D after his name - these people would vote for him. Madness. I am glad some people were mad.

There’s a very large arab community on Orange county. before i moved I well remember 9/11 down there on a certain main street called Brookhurst( nore easterly side by the #5 fwy). One day there were quite a few arab loan sharks and small kabob, etc businesses and bam seemed like overnight they were gone, but not all, and from what I’ve heard is the area has grwon much larger. Nevertheless, such hating on Jews seeems to be okay and PC, especially from past history at UC Irvine. Too bad, Irvine used to be nice, when it was full of farmland.
