UCI Muslims Attack FBI Agent With Concrete Cinderblock - CAIR Angry With FBI Agent

Well, of course they are. You wouldn't expect them to be on the side of American law and order would you?

An unbelievable story from the University of California Irvine, where the Muslim Students Union is holding a virulently anti-Israel hate week, and at the same time trying to claim victimhood: FBI actions at UCI questioned.

The OC Register says the “FBI” is being questioned. But notice—the students not only tried to detain the agent, they threw a cinderblock at his car.

...he noticed a silver Ford Taurus with blackened windows following him. Ahmed said he stopped the truck in view of other campus observers and stood in front of the Taurus, trying to look through the blackened windshield and asking the driver to identify himself. When he would not speak, Ahmed said he tried to take a photo of the car’s license plate with his camera phone.
“He could have just rolled down his window and said, ‘I’m an FBI agent,’ and that would have been the end of it,” Ahmed said. “There was nothing improper going on.”

Instead, according to Ahmed, the driver revved his engine threateningly and began pushing him backward with the car’s front bumper. Ahmed said he then began calling for help, and dozens of other students ran over to assist. ... Regarding the allegations that an FBI agent endangered a student, Eimiller said, “The fair thing to do is to let the cops investigate it.” She added that a student threw a cinderblock at the agent.

The agent did not violate any policy by refusing to identify himself, Eimiller said, because he was not conducting an arrest.

On Thursday, Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Southern California chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations in Anaheim, said his office “has received many calls from students and parents at UCI expressing extreme concern about the safety and privacy of their students on campus” since Monday.

“The calls came all day yesterday and today,” Ayloush said Thursday. “It’s understandable that law enforcement might sometimes need to verify certain tips, but the problem in this situation was the manner in which it was conducted.”
