A Chronology of Events at UC-Irvine

Gary Fouse

Hat tip to Miggie and Scholars for Peace in the Middle East

My colleague, Leila Beckwith, Professor Emeritus at UCLA, has written an account of anti-Semitic activity at UC-Irvine for Scholars for Peace in the Middle East. It gives a fine account of the mess that has been going on at UC-Irvine the last few years.

The recent suspension of the Muslim Student Union at UCI in no way means that this sad spectacle has reached an end. The suspension has been reduced to one quarter, and it appears that the MSU has now been re-organized (at least for this quarter) as Alkalima-Muslim Students at UC-Irvine.

What a great reputation for a university to have. What is really sad is that 99% of the students at UCI do not deserve this reputation. It is a classic example of how a few troublemakers ruin things for everyone.

Gary, thank you for all you do to keep us updated about our university campuses, where we send our children. I shudder to think what we would never know without you.
