Proof!: Email Trail Proves Muslims at UC Irvine Tried to Stop Oren:

A group called the Investigative Project on Terrorism today posted on its web site details about a “plot to silence the Israel Ambassador Michael Oren” during his visit to UC Irvine on February 8, 2010.

The website claims it has proof via internal emails it obtained by the Muslim student Union that it “orchestrated the repeated disruptions” during Oren’s speech.  Here is a copy of one of those emails, taken from the site’s blog entry today.  The email, sent on February 4th, four days before the Oren event, calls for “an emergency planning meeting for the Israeli Ambassador event.  The email is underlined “We need to plan and take action together.”

What is the big deal you say?  Proof.  Among other things, this email shows that the group planned to stop Oren from speaking, violating his free speech rights.  It is ammunition the University and district attorney needs to potentially prosecute the students involved.

Knowing they crossed the boundaries, the Investigative project then lists another email, this time by someone named Secretary Sumayya Fatima Hussaini.  I am guessing this is a student.  In the follow-up email the student writes, I should say advises other MSU students to say:  “It was NOT an MSU event. This is probably the most important thing to remember to say. The 11 acted on their own accord, and it was not organized or put on by MSU. If asked about MSU stance, MSU DID NOT ORGANIZE THE PROTEST, but MSU does condemn the university for sponsoring the Oren speech.” [Emphasis original]

I have no idea how they got ahold of the emails but there it is proof.  I am sure the university wants to make sure it has crossed its t’s before moving ahead in this investigation.  If the emails can be verified, it is absolute proof they need to take action against the students and against the MSU.

Stay tuned….More to come as I can compile information

I also pulled this from their web site. It is details About the Investigative Project

The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) is a non-profit research group founded by Steven Emerson in 1995. It is recognized as the world’s most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups. For more than a decade, the IPT has investigated the operations, funding, activities and front groups of Islamic terrorist and extremist groups in the United States and around the world. It has become a principal source of critical evidence to a wide variety of government offices and law enforcement agencies, as well as the U.S. Congress and numerous public policy forums. Research carried out by the IPT team has formed the basis for thousands of articles and television specials on the subject of radical Islamic involvement in terrorism, and has even led to successful government action against terrorists and financiers based in the United States.

The IPT accepts no funding from outside the United States, or from any governmental agency or political or religious institutions. Tax deductible contributions should be made to its fund-raising arm, the Investigative Project on Terrorism Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

Founder and executive director Steven Emerson is an internationally recognized expert on terrorism and national security and author. Consulted by the White House, National Security Council, FBI, Justice Department, Congress and intelligence agencies, Mr. Emerson is in great demand as one of the most astute, insightful and knowledgeable experts in the world today on the threat and prospects of militant Islamic terrorism. He has been quoted in more than 500 news articles and has appeared frequently on network television. His 2002 best-selling book, American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us, provides the first context and understanding for how one of the most notorious terrorist groups in the world could have plotted the worst terrorist attack on American soil without detection or scrutiny by American authorities.
