UC Irvine School of Fine Arts Rejects Statue of Raoul Wallenberg

Gary Fouse, fousesquawk

Reference is made to my previous posts about an effort to have a statue of Raoul Wallenberg placed on the UC Irvine campus.

Below is a copy of a letter sent to Peter Lancz, the organizer of the drive, by Joseph S Lewis, Dean of the Clair Trevor School of the Arts dated January 30, 2012. 

This is the same department that just this past Saturday hosted some kind of symposium by a group of anti-Israel activists and film makers.

Do you suspect that had someone wanted to erect a statue of Nobel Peace Prize winner Yasser Arafat on the campus, the school would have given it more favorable consideration?

"Uhhhh, yeaaaah."
So do I.

yasser Arafat, obama and the grand mufti embracing each other would be a much more fitting statue than just arafat by his lonesome.

I bet cair, isna, msa would all be willing contributors to such a work.

Thanks for posting here, Gary.
