Students for Justice in Palestine Disrupted Another Pro-Israel Event

The pro-Palestinian student group, Students for Justice in Palestine (known as SJP), disrupted another pro-Israel event at the University of California-Irvine. Last year, they disrupted an event, and this time, several of their activist students cursed at event attendees:

Campus Reform reported last May that students affiliated with SJP had participated in shutting down a film-screening hosted by a Jewish student group on campus, resulting in a “written warning, effective immediately” sanctioned against SJP, which expired in March.

Now, almost exactly a year later, the same group overtook a Students Supporting Israel event featuring Israeli veterans who are touring college campuses to share their firsthand experiences from on the ground.

A group of roughly 30 protesters descended upon the event when it was about halfway through, initially engaging civilly but quickly turning to insulting the speakers and shouting over them as they attempted to answer questions.
