fourth  reich [Editors note: The quote discussed here was plastered on the MSU wall]

From Concerned UC Student Blog

Time and again, the UC Irvine Muslim Student Union makes a poster with the following quotation on it: "We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population."

They attribute the quotation to David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel.
They've cited as their source two different locations:

  1. The "Koenig Memorandum" (Shown IN FULL at the end of this post – see if you can find the quote)
  2. The books of Michael Ben-Zohar

Let me tell you that this is a completely FABRICATED quotation.102.00 GROUNDS FOR DISCIPLINE

Chancellors may impose discipline for the commission or attempted commission (including aiding or abetting in the commission or attempted commission) of the following types of violations by students, as well as
such other violations as may be specified in campus regulations:

102.01 All forms of academic misconduct including but not limited to cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, or
facilitating academic dishonesty.

102.02 Other forms of dishonesty including but not limited to fabricating information, furnishing false
information, or reporting a false emergency to the University.

(http://www.students.uci.edu/judicial/uci_policy.php#100.00)

Note that UCI's rules make sure to specify that one can be punished for academic misconduct (i.e. WITHIN the classroom) as well as dishonesty OUTSIDE the classroom. There's also other rules about harassment (section 102.11) and in fact an entire protocol on Hate and Bias Incident Response (Appendix M).

I can't BELIEVE that UCI still refuses to enforce its own rules. If they did, I wouldn't have to have just used up 2 hours writing this email intead of spending that time on my homework and had made it to the class that I'm now 30 minutes late for; my grades would also be a lot higher (and my stress level lower) if I didn't have to deal with this B.S. – I can't make it any clearer how much this environment is affecting me and my fellow Jewish students.
