UC Irvine MSU Accosts FBI, Demands Explanation

Here’s an update on the story of the FBI agent at UC Irvine, who was accosted by Muslim students and possibly assaulted with a cinderblock (although everyone’s being very vague about that little detail); the agent actually sounded his siren and used the car’s PA system to warn the students who surrounded his car in a dead end street: FBI: agent was investigating vehicle when confronted by student.

It’s astounding that the FBI let these students get away with this outrageous behavior. Maybe it’s a result of all those CAIR-sponsored sensitivity training sessions.

An FBI agent confronted by a Muslim student at the University of California, Irvine, earlier this month was trying to get a closer look at a “suspicious” truck at the time, federal authorities said Sunday.

The agent had followed the truck to the campus from a separate location as part of an investigation that was unrelated to the school or student activities, bureau spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. “The investigation the agents were engaged in had nothing to do with the UCI campus or student activities there,” she said. [Why not? Monitoring the activities of radical Islamic front groups is exactly what the FBI ought to be doing. —ed.]

The FBI’s response comes after a Muslim student said an agent bumped him with his car near the site of an anti-Israel protest on May 14. Yasser Ahmed, 21, said he noticed he was being followed by a car with blackened windows as he drove a 24-foot moving van on campus to pick up an exhibit, sponsored by the Muslim Student Union, that protested Israel policies in Palestine. [Unbelievable. Speakers called Jews “Nazis,” called for jihad and martyrdom, and spread sick antisemitic conspiracy theories and Holocaust denial—and Bakersfield.com calls it “protesting Israel policies” in a nonexistent country. Could they possibly be any more biased and misleading? —ed.]

After he got out of the truck and asked the driver to identify himself, he claimed the driver then revved the engine and began pushing Ahmed back with the front bumper before driving off. …

The FBI said the incident occurrent on a dead-end street after a group of people surrounded the car of one agent.

“The agent blew his siren and used the cars PA system to warn” the group, the bureau said in a statement. “At that point, it was clear that this was a law enforcement vehicle. At least one person threw or placed a cinder block under the law enforcement vehicle.”
