A California state appeals court has upheld the conviction of 10 students at the University of California, Irvine, who disrupted a 2010 speech by then-Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren.
SAN FRANCISCO (JTA) -- Criminal charges were filed against 11 Muslim students who disrupted a speech by Israel's ambassador to the United States in Irvine, Calif.
Jewish groups offered a mixed reaction to the charges filed late last week against nine University of California-Irvine students and two students from UC Riverside. Arraignment is set for March 11 in Santa Ana, Calif. The students disrupted a Feb. 8, 2010 speech by Ambassador Michael Oren at the University of California, Irvine. Oren walked off the stage twice, unable to continue because of the disruption.
