UC-Irvine sanctions Muslim students for terrorizing Jewish campus event

After months of deliberation, the University of California, Irvine has concluded its investigation into its Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter, deeming the group worthy of sanctions for intimidating Israeli students.

Campus Reform initially reported in May that a film-screening hosted by a Jewish student group on campus was disrupted by a protest “organized and led” by SJP, the school has finally conceded.

As a result, though, SJP will merely be issued a “written warning, effective immediately.” The school insists, however, that the warning will last a really long time—all the way until March of next year, to be exact.

The only apparent consequence of the warning is that SJP will be forced to host “an educational program by November 18 2016,” according to an email obtained by Campus Reform.

“After a thorough review, the student conduct investigation is now complete,” Vice Chancellor Thomas Parham wrote in a campus-wide email. “The investigators found that Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the group that organized and led the protest, violated Student Conduct Policies regarding disruption: ‘Obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, administration, disciplinary procedures, or other University activities.’”

The move comes on the heels of increased pressure mounted on UCI’s administration by local Jewish advocacy groups, many of which protested the lack of action taken by the school.

At least 36 activist groups, in fact, condemned the administration for its response, saying in a letter that UCI “consistently turns a blind eye to acts of anti-Semitism.”

Just this year, though, at least nine incidents of anti-Semitic activity have occurred on UCI’s campus, the disruption caused by SJP being the most recent, where one student was left no choice but to hide from an approaching mob of protesters.

Notably, the school’s College Republican chapter was recently suspended because of an administrative technicality. Due to national outrage, though, that decision was later overturned.

In his Thursday letter, Parham noted SJP’s constitutional right to protest, but cited its hostility and intimidation as grounds for the suspension.

“UCI values its diverse mix of cultures and opinions,” he wrote. “We support and defend groups exercising free speech and assembly, yet we must protect everyone’s right to express themselves without disruption. This is a bedrock principle of our university. Let’s continue to work together to foster a safe environment that allows the open, civil, and robust exchange of ideas to flourish.”

  1. As a part-time teacher at UCI since 1998, I have seen too many incidents of anti-Jewish intimidation and disruption at UCI. This latest slap on the wrist of SJP is spitting in the face of the students who were victimized by these bullies.

    In addition to SJP and other student groups, there were a couple of so-called “legal observers” from the (communist) National Lawyers Guild -attached to the UCI Law School-present who demanded access for the protesters. That is how they identified themselves to the campus newspaper. After the event was concluded, the protesters “marched back to the Cross Cultural Center” according to a letter written by NLG. This has been a recurring theme over the years as pro-Palestinian protesters who disrupt pro-Israel events on campus use the CCC as a staging area. And where is the punitive action for the law school and CCC?

    UCI and its administrators have shown that they are unwilling to confront certain groups on campus when they cross the lines. This “punishment” is a joke.

  2. I have never visited the UCI campus. But, judging by the actions/inaction of the administran, it would not surprise me to find gas chambers and crematory ovens erected on the main quadrant. This pandering to Islam can lead to nowhere but Hell on Earth.

  3. Google UCI and SJP or JVP. You’ll discover SJP has participated in overt Anti-Semitism on this campus for years and at one point was correctly charged with conspiracy. I’m sure pressure from the University was the mitigating factor why that charge was changed to a lesser charge.Many of the Organizations are Front Organizations for Hamas and/or the Muslim Brotherhood. Both do not seek multiculturalism nor Free Speech/Expression. The SJP by it’s very actions demonstrated over a long period of time has shown that they too don’t believe in Multiculturalism if it involves Jews or Israeli Foreign Students, Free Speech as shown with Pro Israel Speakers or Speakers who are Israeli but talking about a non-political topic, and Freedom Expression. Vice Chancellor Thomas Parham is earning his paycheck for being PC for the right groups that may endow a large sum to UCI or not cause real trouble on campus,(providing he doesn’t provoke them) or he truly is in La La Land, ignorant about what the true nature of these organizations are who they are connected to and they represent the extreme of intolerance and Anti-Bill of Rights. The may have attorneys from CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding case in the USA, US v HFA et al but that aside the saying in Islam is First the Saturday People then the Sunday People if you get the drift Tom.

  4. I don’t know how many times I have written the UCPres, UCRegents, Governor, and other Reps in my state about the anti-Semitism that the moslems and their useful idiots keep pulling on their campuses.

    If it keeps happening with little or no change, the UCPresident should be removed, along with the UCChancelor of the offending campus. Both should be removed – the bad leadership goes all the way to the top.

    • When you can’t make any headway with anyone in Officialdom and the problem is not only clear but becoming progressively dangerous, my bet is money is involved somewhere

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
