Jewish Student Suing UC Berkeley After Muslim Assault

March 6, 2011

March 6 2011-Militant Islam Monitor-Jessica Felber, a Jewish student at UC Berkeley, is suing the university for failing to provide protection against "harassment and intimidation" being used by Muslim groups on campus. Felber was participating in a 2010 pro Israel demonstration and carrying a sign which said "Israel Wants Peace" when she was rammed from behind with a shopping cart and injured by Husam Zakharia, the leader of the group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). Felber was granted a restraining order against Zakharia.The suit notes that in 2008 he was cited for battery of a Jewish student.

According to the suit:

"The assault could have been prevented if campus authorities had taken sufficient care to ensure students' safety…

"By failing to provide security to Jewish and pro-Israel students, UC Berkeley "condoned and allowed the MSA, the SJP and MSU [Muslim Student Union] to threaten, harass and intimidate Jewish students and to endanger their health and safety." http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/142706
