When the Israeli ambassador to the United States spoke at the University of California Irvine (UCI), students made such a racket in protest that he was barely able to deliver his speech.

The unfortunate speaker, one Michael Oren, was supposed to be giving a speech on US-Israeli relations (ironically) on Feb. 8. He didn't get very far before a heckler shouted "propagating murder is not an expression of freedom". The student was immediately led away by security, but there were many more to come...

Towards the end of the clip (5'20), a member of the audience, supposedly a teacher, tells the protestors "You're failing your exams. You're failing".

According to the UCI, the "trouble-makers" were from the university's Muslim Student Union (MSU). However, the group has denied responsibility and says that the hecklers acted on their own.
