University Tension

     ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Eight Muslim students convicted of
misdemeanors for disrupting a speech by the Israeli ambassador at
the University of California, Irvine, have thanked supporters at an
Anaheim mosque.
     The Orange County Register reports that student Mohamed
Abdelgany told local Muslims Sunday that while they're upset about
the verdict, they have no regrets.
     Abdelgany said the outbursts that brought the eight and two
others a sentence of community service and probation is part of
their higher education.
     Student Taher Herzallah said her mother feared she would go to
jail, and made her promise not to protest again for a year.
     The students' lawyer told the audience that they planned to
appeal.
