    So is he backtracking or was he misunderstood?

    At the moment I am thinking the former rather than the latter.
    Maybe that's just the skeptic in me.

    And yet Michael Savage was banned from speaking at Cambridge and is too my knowledge banned from the UK when he has never talked of slaughtering any ethnic or religious group . Iam sure if Nick Griffin much as I dislike him, talked of slaughtering Muslims in a speech ,his feet would not touch the floor .

    If the Islamic society rep said that , I feel being kicked out of Oxford should be least that should happen.I think an orange jumpsuit and a cell at belmarsh awaits with a possible holiday to Gitmo. How dare he say that about the jewish people. I think all extremists of whatever religion or ethnicity,once they talk of killing those of another religion, they need to be put away. If he is a British citizen,if he isn't deport the idiot.

    At many times during various debates, both formal and not, I have shouted out such things as "all muslims are terrorists', "fat people should be shot", he's a jew, you can tell by the nose", "she was blatantly on the blob", "lets kill Gordon Brown", "death to all Christians, they're in to the whole martyr thing" and "whose up for another 7/7 dans la stagecoach". Of course, these things were just a bit of banter and high spirits, as I'm sure these societies are. I think people are overhyping things said at suck functions. For example, if one was to attend a certain political society and ask me if I supported terror attacks on Israel, they would get an answer along the lines of "it is the only right thing to do against such a vile, oppressive, xenophobic, bullying state. That of course does not mean that I have any intention of affiliating myself in anyway with anti-Israeli terror groups, or even believe what I say, but that I'm feeling dramatic and hyped up.

    Extreme views shouted at university societies, what's new? The scaremongering tactics of the newspapers that report such jokes are trolls at their worst. Perhaps some people should really get a sense of perspective and calm the **** down.

    Well I've been to debates at the Oxford Union many times and I've never heard anything like what this guy said. I was there, he definately wasn't having a bit of banter. :rolleyes:

    I'm assuming you have no agenda (unlike the media 'trolls'), so what really happened? Did he happen to shout when everyone else was quiet or something?

    So what, he doesn't like Jews. 5% of Americans believe that homosexuality is a disease, and 10% of Americans support wiping out countries like Iran and Afghan with bombs. Students experiment with all sorts of ideas. Again, what's new, apart from the fact that he's black and a different religion :rolleyes:

    Well the debate wasn't exactly peaceful at any point, but it wasn't like he was was among a huge crowd of people all shouting slogans. He was easily noticeable. I didn't hear the exact words that he said and I don't speak any Arabis but Danny Ayalon translated what he had said and people in the hall who had understood what he said seemed to agree with Ayalon's interpretation.

    Well regardless of what some Americans think or don't think, inciting racial hatred is a criminal offence in the UK. Being a student is not an excuse.

    Ah well, he's not the first to act so stupidly at Oxbridge. Take Mr. Griffin as a fine example. It envies me how scum like them can earn places at Oxbridge, purely on academic merit, when their personalities (especially the way they come across to other ethnicities) are appalling.

    How does holding such views make you stupid ? They may be socially/politically unacceptable, but noway do they show that the guy is any less intelligent or capable and shouldn't deserve to go oxford.
    Regardless of whether holding such views makes you "stupid", surely he should of at least been bright enough to know the negative consequences his actions would entail? Someone who would piss away a place at one of the most prestigious universities in the world just for some bigoted belief certainly doesn't deserve to go there.

    Something seems too idiotic about this story.
    I wouldn't usually comment on this, but everytime I see something which puts a few Muslims in a bad light, you say it's "exaggerated" or "idiotic". Obviously you'd have a tendency to agree with your Muslim brothers, and there is every chance that he did not exclaim "slaughter the jews". But whatever it is, it certainly isn't "too idiotic" to be true.

    At my university, I heard a Muslim guy insulting Jews badly in broad daylight and quite loudly at a protest. Only a minority do stuff like this, but it does happen, so it certainly isn't too iditioc to be true, and when it does happen, it should be taken seriously, instead of being dismissed as "lies" or "exaggerations".

    He's lying, everyone in the hall who could understand him seemed to agree that he shouted "kill the Jews".
