Explosive IPT Report on UC-Irvine Disruption

Gary Fouse

The Investigative Project on Terrorism is reporting that the disruption of Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren's speech at UC-Irvine on February 8th was a planned event according to e-mails purported to be from the campus Muslim Student Union.

If this report is accurate, it would call into question the MSU's denial that the disruptions were part of an MSU-coordinated action. The MSU has claimed that the disruptions were spontaneous by individuals acting on their own. This is a point of contention since the on-going UCI internal review might consider sanctions against the MSU as a campus organization in addition to those being considered against the specific students.
