I've asked it before, and I'll ask it again: what kind of religion is this where lying and thuggery are seen as marks of devotion? What's next? Child marriage? Oh...
From the Investigative Project: "The MSU Plot to Silence Israel's Ambassador"
Despite claims to the contrary, internal emails from the University of California, Irvine's Muslim Student Union (MSU) show that the group orchestrated the repeated disruptions of a speech given on campus by Israeli ambassador Michael Oren February 8.
A copy of the email exchanges was sent anonymously to school and local law enforcement officials, who are investigating whether students violated conduct codes or criminal laws, respectively, in deliberately disrupting an invited guest speaker at the school. The emails include a "game plan," which details the disruption plan down to where the student disruptors would sit, how they would communicate with each other via text messaging, and how to act if campus police began to arrest students.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism also received a copy of the packet sent to UCI officials.
During his speech, Oren was interrupted more than a dozen times by students who stood up and shouted that he was a murderer and a war criminal. He left the stage for about 20 minutes before order was restored and he was able to continue his remarks.
Prior to the speech, MSU officials told UCI administrators that they were not planning any disruptions before the speech. Police arrested 11 students during the event, eight from UC Irvine and three from UC Riverside.
Afterward, numerous press accounts included MSU denials that the disruptions were orchestrated...
As the now public emails make clear, these denials were an attempt to cover up the truth about MSU's behind-the-scenes attempt to shout down a visiting diplomat. A decision to disrupt the event had been made at an MSU board meeting days before the speech, the records show.
"We've already discussed the different options in the GA (general assembly) meeting and we took a vote," a February 4 email to the MSU board said. "So now that we have voted on one method of action, we all go through this together, insha'Allah ta'ala together as one MSU … one Ummah." [Emphasis original]
Meeting minutes also included in the packet show the ultimate objective was to stop Oren from being heard. "[O]ur goal should be that he knows that he cant (sic) just go to a campus and say whatever he wants." Members were advised to "push the envelope," in order to "realize our role as the MSU of UCIrvine."
A week later, as MSU members prepared to staff an information table on campus, Secretary Sumayya Fatima Hussaini sent an email with talking points about how to respond to questions about the disruption at the speech:
"It was NOT an MSU event. This is probably the most important thing to remember to say. The 11 acted on their own accord, and it was not organized or put on by MSU. If asked about MSU stance, MSU DID NOT ORGANIZE THE PROTEST, but MSU does condemn the university" for sponsoring the Oren speech." [Emphasis original]
Further, Hussaini wrote, MSU members should voice support for the 11 arrested students, but try to steer the conversation away from the controversy and "always try and bring the discussion back to Islam."...
Salahi should speak with one of her clients about his own language. In preparing the plan, MSU President Mohamed Abdelgany said he expected Oren to try to ignore the outbursts. "And if he starts just reacting to us, then the program will have essentially been hijacked."
Muslim engaged in hijacking. Who would have guessed?
Yes, read the whole thing. And let's hope that the UC-Irvine administration responds appropriately to these disclosures.
