Thank You

Reader comment on item: My Disrupted Talk at the University of California-Irvine

Submitted by Reut Cohen (United States), Feb 2, 2007 at 23:39

Dear Professor Pipes,

I would like to thank you on behalf of the Anteaters for Israel at UC Irvine for speaking on our campus. I found your lecture informative and valuable, and although the Muslim Student Union (MSU) attempted to ruin the event, I think they just helped make your points clearer.

As you know, I chased the MSU out of the building to watch them have a hate-rally all by themselves. Although I am used to this behavior, it has always been hard for me to grasp the amount of hate they hold for Israelis and "Zionist Jews." When radical Muslims refuse to try to get along with Jewish students on college campuses, what can we expect abroad?

Like you, I hope to see Israel cease so-called diplomacy and compromise with Palestinians that want nothing more than kill the entire Jewish population in Israel. It was truly a pleasure to hear you speak and I hope that despite the protesting, you felt welcomed by Jewish and pro-Israel individuals on our campus.

Sincerely,

Reut Cohen

Daniel Pipes replies:

I am most grateful for your having taped the event, and especially for having had the idea to follow the goons outside. What they said there - despite an awareness of your presence, taping them - is already reverberating.
