UC Berkeley Students Tackle World Wide “Israel Apartheid Week”

Note:  At least three major anti-Israel, BDS, events were held on the UC Irvine campus , sponsored by the Students for “Justice” in Palestine.   On February 28,  Jewish Voice for Peace  ”activists” at least one of  whom claimed to have disrupted  Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech in November 2010, proudly proclaimed that those who defended Israel did not deserve the right to free speech;  And that those who defended Israel on campuses like UCI should “not feel safe”and should  simply “deal with it”. Sadly,  Jewish Community leaders were conspicuously absent, as well as,  from other recent anti-Israel exhibitions at UCI including  Ben White and  Jeff Halper.
