On Thursday night during an event highlighting the stories, history, and experiences of three different Middle Eastern indigenous communities — Armenian, Jewish, and Kurdish — at UCLA, students were harassed, attacked, and shouted down by Students for Justice in Palestine during their event.
The Palestinian protesters brought in blow-horns to shut down the speakers.
One Palestinian ripped down the Armenian and Israeli flags screaming, “Mother f-king’ Armenian flag!”
The protesters shut down the event for over 15 minutes until the campus police arrived.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Pro-Palestinian students at UCLA attacked a Lebanese Christian sharing the story of his grandparent’s survival of the Armenian genocide for “white supremacy.”
Police had to be called to a student event celebrating indigenous peoples Thursday evening, where members of Students for Justice in Palestine stormed the room and ripped down Armenian and Jewish flags.
Students Supporting Israel at UCLA hosted an event, “Indigenous Peoples Unite,” bringing together three speakers from the Armenian, Jewish, and Kurdish communities to talk about “these peoples’ efforts in battling controversy, oppression, and revisionism.”
One of the panelists, Dario Ouliguian, a second-year UCLA linguistics major who is vice president of the Lebanese club, shared his perspective about being a descendent of a survivor of the Armenian genocide. Ouliguian also heads the Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies Student Advisory Board.
Activists from the anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine interrupted Ouliguian’s story, with one student walking up to Ouliguian, ripping down the “mother f—king” Armenian flag, and throwing Ouliguian’s notes away.
Other anti-Israel activists then surrounded the room, armed with blow horns and whistles, yelling, “Palestine will be free!” When a female student tried to diffuse the situation, the group only got louder.
“Israel is a terrorist state!” they yelled, and then took down the flag of Israel.
When Ouliguian tried to return to the microphone to talk about Armenia, the group started screaming, “F—k white supremacy!”
Campus police were called to remove the protesters, who shut down the event and occupied the room for roughly 15 minutes.
When police began escorting them out, a white student yelled in front of several African-American police officers, “UCLA is on the side of racism! And the terrorist state of Israel!”
Students for Justice in Palestine organizers said they protested because the “event is false” because it did not feature a Palestinian speaker.
