How long before someone gets hurt?
The group has incited against and disrupted Jewish speakers on campus since 2010.
On May 18, 2016, SJP UCI members disrupted a pro-Israel film screening. SJP UCI student leader, Celine Qussiny led a crowd of fifty who tried to force their way into the venue. They called for “Intifada” (violent uprising) and to “Fight the police.” Pro-Israel attendees were escorted out by police, for their own protection.
The university administration put SJP UCI on probation, effective until March 2017.
When the probation period expired, Celine Qussiny and SJP UCI were back. On May 10, 2017, they stormed a pro-Israel panel discussion event, with Qussiny leading a crowd in various chants including, “When people are occupied, resistance is justified!”
Again, attendees needed a police escort out of the venue.
The next day, Celine Qussiny bragged how SJP UCI had gone “to disrupt the event” in order “to let them (the panelists) know that we refuse to allow the normalization of their presence here.”
She admitted that SJP UCI knew full-well that “the administration told us not to disrupt, that we have to be civil.”
It’s hard to understate the seriousness of this. But it gets worse.
Our 2017 Report on the University of California, Irvine unearthed the shocking discovery that a number of protesters from the May 10th incident were members of the UCI student government.
When student senators join disruptions that flout university rules and jeopardize student safety, is it not time to say enough is enough?
Contact UCI Chancellor Howard Gillman at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him that you have had enough of SJP UCI disrupting Jewish life on UCI’s campus. SJP should be banned from the UCI campus and the student government members who participated in their disruptions, impeached.
