In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we look at T-Magazine’s cover story “No you can’t” about the prosecution of the Irvine 11 that points towards increasing intolerance and Islamophobia in the United States.

Khuhro discusses the guilty verdict handed down to eleven University of California students charged with violating the Israeli ambassador’s right to free speech. He points to the novelty of the decision, since heckling to protest the US president Obama of former vice-president doesn’t land you in jail, but eleven Muslim students heckling an Israeli ambassador sure does.
