UC Irvine's Free Speech Debate
Here is a editorial from the LA Times:
http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/...,2972313.story

It is about an Israeli Ambassador being shouted down during a speech he was invited by the University to give. The hecklers were students and Muslim activists.

The issue here IS NOT ARAB/ISRAELI RELATIONS. It is about free speech.

The discussion should be on whether the students and hecklers should be punished or were they exercising their right to free speech. This is the topic of the Editorial.

Anyone wanting to discuss Israeli/Arab relations should visit one of the threads dealing with that subject.

You're right. It's very rude to interrupt someone making a speech. It is a right so important that it has its place in the US Constitution. A right that many have fought and died for.
