Your editorial and editorial cartoon on June 27 were insults to the Jewish community of Orange County, supporters of Israel and freedom of speech and UC Irvine (Forum: "MSU deserves fair hearing," June 27). Evidently the purpose of the editorial and cartoon was to split the issue down the middle. You gave the cartoon and the title of the editorial to the Muslim Student Union and the anti-Israel community and you gave the body of the editorial, sort of, to everyone else.
If you didn't want to take sides, you should have said nothing. Your headline suggests that the MSU did not get a fair hearing from the UCI administration while the body of the editorial, more or less, suggests otherwise.
I attended the Feb. 8 talk by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren. The conduct of the disrupters had nothing to do with their freedom of speech. They were simply making noise, albeit in the form of words, to deny Oren the right to speak and the audience the right to hear him.
