    what they didn't do is act in a respectful manner. if they had questions they should have at the very least waited until the end and waited for their opportunity to ask about any concerns they had, in a orderly manner.

    or they should've just left. like these students. they got their message across loud and clear. no shouting, no yelling, no interrupting.



    University of Michigan Campus

    On October 20 2010, two IDF soldiers came to the University of Michigan campus as part of a national PR campaign by Stand With Us aimed at justifying Israel's recent atrocities in the Middle East. Students, staff, and community members collectively engaged in a silent walk-out in memory and in solidarity with all of the silenced Palestinian children that were killed by the IDF during Israel's most recent offensive on the Gaza Strip who are unable to take a stand and give their account today

    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Jewish group backs UCI Muslim students facing charges - Local News - Orange County, CA - Santa Ana, CA - msnbc.com
    In a statement, an Oakland group called the Jewish Voice for Peace urged the Orange County District Attorney's Office "to immediately stop efforts to criminalize the actions of these Muslim students who, in the long-standing tradition of non-violent activism for social justice, protested the speech of the Israeli Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren."
    they should drop this.

    I saw the video and these protesters were clearly there to disrupt and they did in deed break the law. They are trying to hide behind free speech which they knew they would violate prior to them organizing the disruption.

    Throw the book at them.

    Did you watch the video? It wasn't one interruption and then they were all removed. It was planned so that there were numerous interruptions and they were removed one at a time.

    Absolutely, and in the past some of these Anti Free speech leftists have been violent.

    Now if they had some sort of private company or industry that would benefit from the disruption of say a town hall meeting and shuttle them around and train them and distribute literature towards the most effective way to crash the event for the benefit of private interests and profit. That'd be heroic. Pfft, 'genocide'? That's just hysterics.

    Why can't they just let the man speak? Civil people debate facts, not use strong arm tactics like these people did.

    They believe that genocide is being committed, which they believe justifies their behavior.

    What they believe is not relevant. The fact is that they are screaming free speech while obstructing someone else's free speech. Do you see that?

    and not letting the man speak, helps their side how?

    When people stop other's from their right to free speech, they should lose that right too.
