Jewish students at University of California-Irvine are protesting events planned by anti-Zionists entitled “Holocaust in the Holy Land” and “Israel: The Fourth Reich.” The Muslim Students Union is planning the events for its annual “anti-Zionist week” this week. Other Muslim campus groups have distanced themselves from the week. Jewish students want university officials to condemn the names of the events; so far, any condemnation has been oblique, with university officials citing free speech protections.
