I'm afraid you may be right about a tragedy at (not only) UCI if administrators don't change their attitude.

Thanks for answering.

I've been thinking about what Dr. Pipes said about M&W's "Israel Lobby." If it had been ignored, it would have whimpered off into the obscurity of David Duke and Norman Finkelstein. Objecting to it so widely gave it limelight it didn't deserve. Makes you wonder about publicizing outrages. Depends on what it is, I guess. Hard to tell.

With that thought in mind, it is also hard to believe some conservative media outlet -- or even Fox TV -- wouldn't be interested in carrying a weekly "Notes from Campus" column -- exposing the poisons, and perhaps i.e., the transcript of that young man's video, with a dialogue exposing him to basic (and uncomplicated) facts that he never imagined existed because he's been brainwashed with warped opinions. Whether Americans vote Democrat or Republican usually depends on particular issues and personalities of the contenders -- but the overwhelmingly vast majority believe in basic human decency -- and what's going on on campus -- it's not just contentious -- it's not decent.

I do hope you at least try to get your essay "Got Rights? Yes." published and distributed -- sent to Fox News, Washington Times, Frontpagemag, Weekly Standard, NY Post, etc.? It's more excellent than you realize.

How about a reading and showing of a long, long, long parchment roll of all the major businesses that are owned and run by the Protestants. What about the Presidents! And Congress too!!! Run for the Hills! The Protestants have taken over the country!!! And Europe too!!! Must be a world Cabal -- a Plot!!!

Maybe better to counter the Malik's by an equally vociferous reading of all the University Middle East Studies Departments "owned" by the Saudi Wahabbis. But that would just add to the madness. Better to leave that to Campus Watch and MEF.

Submitting....
