To wit: theRegister
is reporting that UC Irvine officials have banned the controversial Muslim Student Union (MSU) from campus, apparently because of the group's habit of inviting speakers who denounce Israel and being rude to Israeli guest speakers, like when members of the group interrupted Israeli ambassador Michael Oren's Feb. 8 speech on campus. That stunt, while defended as an exercise in free speech, resulted in 11 arrests. The anti-MSU ban will go into place Sept. 1 and last one year, although the group has already appealed the decision.
