UC Irvine School of Fine Arts Rejects Statue of Raoul Wallenberg

Gary Fouse

Reference is made to my previous posts about an effort to have a statue of Raoul Wallenberg placed on the UC Irvine campus.

Below is a copy of a letter sent to Peter Lancz, the organizer of the drive, by Joseph S Lewis, Dean of the Clair Trevor School of the Arts dated January 30, 2012. 

This is the same department that just this past Saturday hosted some kind of symposium by a group of anti-Israel activists and film makers.

Do you suspect that had someone wanted to erect a statue of Nobel Peace Prize winner Yasser Arafat on the campus, the school would have given it more favorable consideration?

"Uhhhh, yeaaaah."

So do I.
