The Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) and the Los Angeles office of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG-LA) sent a letter Friday to University of California, Irvine (UCI) Chancellor Michael V. Drake urging him to drop charges against 11 students who peacefully raucously protested at a UCI-sponsored event. A letter was also sent today to the Orange County District Attorney’s office by CAIR-LA.
Earlier this week, the students spoke shrieked out during the speech of the Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren at the event, (so he could not speak) which was also co-sponsored by the UCI School of Law and by the university’s political science department. The students, since dubbed the “Irvine 11,” left in a voluntary and peaceful manner were taken out by police and were then detained briefly and cited by UCI police officers.
In a letter sent to the university administration, CAIR-LA Executive Director Hussam Ayloush and NLG-LA Executive Director James Lafferty stated in part:
“The right to freely express one’s opinions is a most sacred freedom protected by our Constitution (except when it comes to speech against Islam), finding college campuses to be its most cultivating venue. Civil protest against government abuses is a time-honored tradition that has led to the end of apartheid and the birth of civil rights. (Muslims don’t believe in civil rights)
“The students voiced political views to shame the representative of a foreign government embroiled in controversy for its outrageous violations of international humanitarian and human rights law. Delivering this message in a loud and shocking manner expressed the gravity of the charges leveled against Israeli policies, and falls within the purview of protected speech.” (Muslims don’t care to protect anyone’s speech but their own)
“The selective application of laws by off-campus law enforcement agencies to students engaged in constitutionally-protected political speech will be viewed by the American Muslim community and those who value free speech as an attempt to repress legitimate student protest and will undermine this important First Amendment Right.” (Except when it comes to speech against Islam) CAIR
