Muslim Student Union at UC Irvine rolls out its carnival of hate.

Imagine if you sent your children to university and they were subjected  lies, distortions,  hatred and racism every year for one, two or three weeks at a time.? Imagine images of your religious symbols drenched in blood? Imagine displays depicting  grotesque stereotypical images of your ethnicity?  Is this what you want your university to be known for?

Welcome  to MSU’s annual “anti-Zionist” diatribe at UC Irvine.

Description

61 years of illegal occupation. 61 years of statelessness. 61 years of systematic ethnic cleansing. The Palestinians have lost thousands of lives and millions of have been displaced from their homes. Despite all of this, their resolve remains steadfast, their resistance enduring, their fire unflinching. However, though Israel continues to violate international law and inflict these injustices, Palestinian blood stains our hands, too. We as taxpaying American citizens directly contribute to Israel’s perpetual dehumanization of the Palestinians, as United States tax dollars directly fund Israeli military operations and sustain Israel, the largest recipient of US foreign aid annually. We invite you to attend these events dedicated to raising awareness of the plight of the Palestinians, and to explore the potential for changing this situation through our efforts.

  1. This is arguably the most despicable lineup of speakers the msu has brought to uci. The sponsorship of many of the listed student groups is disappointing to say the least.

    Hopefully, a lot of people wqill come out to stand for Israel-and the US. As always, we should not disrupt, however, I know I will be there ready to pose appropriate questions to the speakers once they have had their say.

    So much for the much-vaunted Olive Tree Initiative moderating the MSU.
