|UC Irvine: A battlefield?|
In today's issue of the JewishJournal.com, Judea Pearl--an acclaimed UCLA professor and the father of Wall Street Journal
reporter Daniel Pearl who was decapitated by nuts in Pakistan in 2002--has written "The Crucible of UC Irvine," which slams the Orange County university as a breeding ground for hate.
"UCI has long been a proving ground [nationally] for orchestrated Israel defamation," Pearl writes. "The combination of a large and highly motivated Muslim student organization, an affluent and supportive Muslim community, a non-confrontational university administration and a divided (what's new?) Jewish leadership has turned the UCI campus into a veritable petri dish to test the limits of hate, bigotry and intimidation."
Pearl calls on UCI "to reassess the way it tolerates the intolerant."
