I am taking the liberty of reposting this from Concerned UCI Student. He introduced himself to me yesterday, and requested absolute anonymity. He has admirably tried to get UCI to stop being a haven for Islamic extremists, â€œMy goal for this blog is to keep an online repository for everyone out there fighting the anti-Semites that regularly visit US college campuses. The University of California, Irvine is one such location.â€
The MSU held an event called “Islamic Palestine” tonight (May 18, 2006) from 8:30 to 10:15 pm in Humanities Hall 178. I was there for the whole thing.
The place was packed – every seat was taken and at least 10 people were standing in the back.
Amir Abdel Malik Ali (the MSU’s favorite anti-Semitic firebrand) spoke for quite a while, then Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss of Neturei Karta (an “anti-Zionist” Orthodox Jewish sect) spoke for a bit. (See this post for more info on Neturei Karta and the other idiots the MSU likes to invite to speak on campus)
Malik Ali did his usual shtick, albeit a bit calmer than usual. However, I had never heard Weiss speak – he’s a funny guy!
Weiss hung himself and the MSU with some of his comments (such as “Zionist Filth”). He just doesn’t know when to shut up. I actually felt sorry for Amir Abdel Malik Ali, sitting there politely next to Weiss with Weiss going on and on and on.
Malik Ali asked something to Weiss – I forget what it was about, other than if something was in the Torah or the Talmud, and instead of giving the short answer that Malik Ali wanted, Weiss went off on three tangents before finally answering Malik Ali’s question.
The Q&A was especially funny: the first question went to Malik Ali, the rest went to Weiss, who continued to run at the mouth.
At the end, a female student in full hijab came up to the stage and announced that a collection was being started for a Palestinian orphan and that they wanted to see if they could get together $500. Then she said why they were doing this: because the Israelis prevent the orphans from getting an education, food, etc.
So the audience got fed yet another lie (blame the Jews – they’re culpable in every problem, right?).
According to Yossi Olmert, the UN report states that the PA has been the largest per-capita recipient of foreign aid since 1994. Where’d it all go? It wasn’t all spent on buying weapons. It wasn’t spent on building houses. Maybe instead of blaming the Jews for their own problems, the MSU needs to investigate the Swiss bank accounts where the terrorists Arafat and Company stashed those billions of dollars.
Here, I found another source for feeding orphans in the PA – don’t buy weapons; use the money to buy food.
I also have to wonder WHICH organization that money is being given too – a front organization for HAMAS, perhaps?

[Editors note: Events on University grounds by student groups are subject to the rules of the University. Segregation by sexes cannot be imposed, by MSU, the Hillel, or anyone else. At Long Beach State, a student was kicked out of a Malik Ali speech by Jeff Klaus, in charge of student programs, for sitting on the “women’s side.” He later had to escort the student back into the women’s “side” when he received word from his bosses that he was totally out of line. The MSA leader Ahmad had a hysterical fit.]
Men to one side, women to the other (or so they tried)

As per usual, the UC Irvine Muslim Student Union tried to segregate men to the speaker’s right and women to the speaker’s left. At least one brave individual refused to go along, even after private and public requests to move – BRAVO!
The same thing has happened to me at previous MSU events that I’ve attended which were not religious occasions. I too have refused to segregate even after repeated requests.
During the civil rights movement, my father helped organize a sit-in at a barber shop when the barber refused to cut a black person’s hair. He was arrested, convicted, spent time in jail, and then had to fight to have his conviction overturned (which he was successful in doing so).
After he went through all that, I’ll be DAMNED if I go along with any form segregation on a public university campus when its not a purely religious event.
