Muslim Student Union members shocked by suspension (from UC Irvine!)
Orange County Register ^ | 6/15/10 | Deepa Baharath

Posted on 06/15/2010 11:54:17 AM PDT by reaganrevolutionin2010

UC Irvine's Muslim Student Union members say a year-long suspension came as a shock and that the university's action would deny Muslim students a sense of community, according to a statement released Monday afternoon.

“Suspending the MSU would undoubtedly create a chilling effect and deprive Muslim students -- both current and incoming -- of a place where they can develop a sense of community with one another and with the broader UCI campus community,” said incoming MSU President Asaad Traina. “Depriving Muslim students a venue to associate jeopardizes their rights under the First Amendment and is an act of marginalization at a time when Muslim students and Muslim youth already feel besieged."

Campus officials at UCI have banned the Muslim Student Union for one year and placed the organization on disciplinary probation for an additional year, according to the Jewish Federation Monday morning.

Federation officials say they obtained documents from the university through the Freedom of Information Act, which show that the Muslim Student Union has been suspended on campus effective Sept. 1.

MSU members said contrary to the federation's statements, the student group has not been officially suspended.

The suspension is the result of a months-long internal review by the university following the arrest of 11 union students during Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren's speech on campus. Oren was repeatedly interrupted by the union members.

I am shocked, as well. I wonder if the University thought they were a Christian student organization?

I remember a few years ago at this same university students wore Hamas armbands at graduation ceremonies and no one did anything. This is where Adam Gadahn came from.

The complaint is a heartbreaker, isn't it? Why can't they fraternize at the friendly neighborhood mosque like everybody else?

They can't do this at their mosque?

Their behavior on campus against another permitted group has caused their bannishment. The school cannot prohibit the students from meeting together somewhere in the city, the school does not have to recognize them or give them space.

Would the students be so ‘tolerant’ to allow the same behavior at their mosque?

They make it sound like it's a bad thing.

Last week at Lawrence University, a liberal arts college in Appleton, WI, my accountant attended the graduation of his granddaughter. The graduate’s uncle pointed out to his father (my accountant) that a group of students were raising a Communist flag on a nearby tree. My accountant didn’t believe him, so he went to see.

“Is that a Communist flag,” his son asked?

“Yes,” the man asked. “Does that offend you?”

“Yes,” my accountant and his son answered.

“Oh,” the man answered, “it’s just to show the graduates and their families where to gather for their reception after graduation. These would be students from North Viet Nam, Russia, China, and so forth.”

Appleton, Wisconsin.

My head explodes.

Just for fun, conduct a poll among the creeps in the UCI MSU, asking them if Jewish students at UCI should be allowed to form a campus group.

Remember, this is the campus where a member of the MSU told David Horowitz that she was all for centering all the world’s Jews in Israel to make it easier to find them and round them up.

“Community” is an elastic word.

Most schools have too many extra-curricular clubs anyway. Are the students there to get an education or lollygag? Maybe the Muslim Student Union can get rolled into the Pakastani student association, the Indian SA, the Egyptian SA, The Saudi SA... you get the idea.

They’ll find a home with like minded travelers before the week is out.

A little editing was needed

Thanks BUMP!

I read Lisa Cornish, senior executive director of Student Housing's letter saying why they were sent packing

In part:

The letter...goes into detail about what each one of the disruptors yelled out during Oren's speech.

Cornish says in the letter that she has concluded based on her review that the Muslim Student Union and each of its authorized signers violated several university policies including “disorderly and lewd conduct, participation in a disturbance of peace or unlawful assembly, obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, administration, disciplinary procedures or other University activities and other forms of dishonesty including ... fabricating information, furnishing false information, or reporting a false emergency to the University.”

Great comments at the website of the article btw

That jumped out at me too. They are obviuosly trained in propaganda techniques. Notice how many times he said "deprived." Certainly Americans don't want people to be "deprived." That would be cruel!! WRONGO!!

Now, why is it that we even have Muslim students? Also, why any foreign students? Aren’t they, in effect, taking the place of an American student? Do they pay full price for their education here?

America is way too civilized. We need to go back to an eye for an eye with a vengeance.

I don’t think Gadahn went to UCI, although he did live in Orange County for a while and attended a mosque there where he was radicalized.

No, it was as UCSD where that incident occurred.

I have a friend monitoring both situations.

Either way, Muslim students in Southern California are quite outspoken and radicalized.

I think the Dean at UCI, who came under enormous pressure, was forced to do this by taxpayers, who threatened to support cutbacks at the UC system in a state which is already bankrupt.

He knows the local lingo. Lord knows what he tells her fellow muzzies when the cameras are off. Aren't you glad California tax and tuition dollars go to supporting such wonderful, sharing community organizations as this?

Why doesn’t the Jewish student union interrupt Muslim speakers? That way they could be suspended for two years, and everything would be fair.
