The American campus is the new Israeli battleground

Israel is facing an increasing challenge to get its voice heard at American universities. That’s what happens when you spend decades occupying another people.

Take this continually interrupted speech by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren. Hours before he spoke this was released:

UCI’s Muslim Student Union said in an email today that its members “condemn and oppose the presence of Michael Oren, the ambassador of Israel to the United States, on our campus today. We resent that the Law School and the Political Science Department on our campus have agreed to cosponsor a public figure who represents a state that continues to break international and humanitarian law and is condemned by more UN Human Rights Council resolutions than all other countries in the world combined.”
