Police were called to the campus at California, Irvine (UCI) last Thursday when two radical student groups crashed a Jewish movie screening, pounding on doors and chanting ‘Long live the intifada’.
Those attending the screening feared for their life as the demonstrators blocked the exits and would not let people leave. People frantically called campus police for help, who “had to escort Jewish students away from the scene.”
The protesters claimed the presence of two former Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers “threatened our coalition of Arab, black, undocumented, trans, and the greater activist community.”
Kevin Brum, SSI’s vice president, said the police only escorted them away because the protesters had a right to be there.
