On June 6, 2003 the San Diego Union-Tribune reported that "hundreds of copies of a publication portraying Muslim women as sexual objects and ridiculing Jews, Jesus, and Palestinians were distributed at UC San Diego yesterday and Wednesday, prompting sharp condemnations by the administration and student leaders...Several Muslim students said they were so disturbed by the graphic nature of the images and the wide distribution on campus that they felt compelled to leave."
