Defying expectations, there was minimal conflict between Anteaters For Israel and Muslim Student Union at UC Irvine during the Muslim Student Union’s annual “Never Again? The Palestinian Holocaust” awareness week from Monday, May 12 through May 15.

As in previous years, the week featured multiple guest lecturers.

On Monday afternoon, Imam Mohammed Al Asi spoke of unity, saying, “It should be common ground that all people of all faiths, particularly the people of the Jewish faith, because Zionist Israel purports to speak on behalf of the people of the Jewish faith, we ... should unite Jews and Muslims and Christians together against a hateful and an expansionist militant nation state as is the case with ... Israel.”
