Irvine, California

UC Irvine, home of the infamous Irvine 11 case (wherein 10 Muslim students found guilty of disrupting a 2010 speech at the campus by then Israeli Ambassador to the US Michael Oren were sentenced to informal probation), was the site of a violent anti-Israel protest this year. When a mob of 50+ demonstrators stormed a screening of an Israeli film -- shouting “Long live the intifada!” and “All white people need to die,” the filmgoers were forced to barricade themselves inside. One Jewish student who arrived to see the film was chased into a nearby dorm, from where she was rescued by police after calling 911. In addition, during this year’s Anti-Zionist Week on campus, a display called for “resistance” against Israel and glorified convicted terrorist hijacker Leila Khaled. In October, some 30 anti-Israel protesters disrupted an event featuring former Israeli Chief Justice Aharon Barak, requiring police to escort him and other attendees from the room. Other Israel-related events at the school have subsequently been held in secret. (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
