When you read the description of what happened below, bear in mind that these are college students. Yet they are completely divorced from reality and out of control.

Anti-Israel Activists Try to Shout Down Lebanese Christian at UCLA
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!”
Kurdish, Armenian & Jewish students of @UCLA have been attacked this week, by Palestine-flag-waving protesters, during an event highlighting the history & the experiences of those three indigenous Middle Eastern communities. Such unnecessary and aggressive attitudes lead nowhere. pic.twitter.com/8a9PSuOIvR
