Irvine Student Gathering to Discuss Danish Cartoons Draws Protesters

Apparently, the conference scheduled to discuss the controversy surrounding the Danish cartoons and the anti-Semitism and anti-Westernism in Muslim media is underway. Local affiliate KNBC has the latest update:

'The protest began when about 200 Muslim students, many wearing green armbands, placed mats on the barricaded street and said a prayer. When it ended, about 15 counterprotesters raised U.S. and Israeli flags, shouted "USA! USA!" and sang "God bless America."'

Unfortunately, images and audio are not yet available. One has to wonder what the significance of the green armbands were? An association with Hamas, perhaps? More details as they become available...
