Jihad Watch reader Scott Jacobs has kindly sent along these two videos of Muslim Student Union bullies disrupting a lecture by Daniel Pipes at the University of California at Irvine. Here is yet another example of how one side is engaging in rational discussion while the other regards that as a field on which they simply will not play. And so they resort, as they always to, to bullying.
The first video gives the preamble to the uproar, with several minutes of Pipes' lecture. Then it shows the Muslim students standing up, chanting, and filing out. It gives the goals of the protestors and their explanation of why they hate Pipes: because, in their own words, they aim for the total destruction of Israel; the second records more of the poisonous rhetoric of the Muslim students and then goes on to cover Pipes fielding legitimate audience questions.
Daniel Pipes comments here. Jihad Watch reader JS observes: "Staged walkouts seem to the new thing for liberal/leftist protest. Daniel Pipes and Walid Shoebat both experienced walkouts lately. Walid Shoebat had an audience of 1100, and they had to turn away 300. Then at 7:40 (presumably 40 minutes into the event if it started at 7PM) 200 liberals walked out. So what that means is they kept out 200 people who were interested in what Shoebat had to say."
