A MORE-OR-LESS HAPPY ENDING AT SFSU, but I agree with Eugene Volokh:
If SFSU responded to an allegation that some group had insulted the President, or opposed the war, or criticized Christianity, by putting them through an extended investigation and a hearing, I take it we'd be quite troubled even if ultimately SFSU exonerated the students. The same should apply if the allegation is that the group trampled on the name of Allah.
Once again, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education was involved, which probably helps to account for the outcome. I don't think I've mentioned them lately, but they do excellent work.
