|Brandeis Mascot: Pussalot|
CAIR has its roots with the Muslim Brotherhood, and they, in turn, have stated in their charter that their goal is to destroy our "miserable house" from within. Meaning, they will use our laws and freedoms to attack us until we're all either bowing to Mecca or paying the jizzya--or infidel tax--to them.
Brandeis, a school known for its large Jewish population, was to honor Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born Muslim apostate, woman's rights advocate and critic of Islamic extremism, with a degree from this once prestigious university. The date for the ceremony was scheduled on May 18th, but the school has said about Ms. Ali, (a former member of the Dutch Parliament, a survivor of female genital mutilation, and friend of Theo Van Gogh, a film maker who was murdered by a Muslim man who didn't like his movie Islam's negative violence), "She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women's rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world. That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University's core values."
In a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine, Ms. Ali spoke about radical Islam. "Once it's defeated, it can mutate into something peaceful. It's very difficult to even talk about peace now. They're not interested in peace. I think we are at war with Islam. And there's no middle ground."
The brave administration at the "school" (where learning depends on the subject matter and the subject giving it) said that they were not aware of Ms. Ali's former statements. But Ibrahim Hooper, a spokes-jihadist for CAIR, said, "It is unconscionable that such a prestigious university would honor someone with such openly hateful views." No, he wasn't talking about Islam's hatred for Jews--he's okay with that--he was talking about Ms. Ali, a woman who also survived a civil war, beatings, and an arranged marriage. Maybe she has a thing or two to say about her views on Islam and what she believes is wrong with it.
Ibrahim Hooper appeared on Megyn Kelly's Fox News program last night, and will appear again tonight, and his signature debating techniques are to interrupt all criticism and then use ad hominem attacks wherever they serve best. He is fearful of debating Robert Spencer, an expert on the Koran and Islam, because some of the things in the Koran is clearly repugnant.
So what are Brandeis University's "core values"? The exclusion of free speech? Genital mutilation? Arranged marriages of young girls to old men? Women not being allowed to drive a car or having half the legal rights as a man? Stopping the education of women altogether? Maybe it's all about money and secret donations made by Saudi Arabia.
Sarah Fahmy, who created the petition against Ms. Ali, and a member of the Muslim Student Association, a group funded by the Saudis and part of the Muslim Brotherhood umbrella, said, "This is a real slap in the face to Muslim students."
In Ms. Ali's defense I must say, at least it wasn't a beheading. Look, she didn't kill anyone or say things about Muslims that Muslims say about Jews and Christians. Of course, since she renounced Islam in her 30's, she is supposed to be killed for that, based on the teachings of the Koran.
Of all the faculty, only Thomas Doherty, chairman of American Studies, refused to sign the cowardly letter and said that it would have been great for the school to honor "such a courageous fighter for human freedom and women's rights, who has put her life at risk for those values."
Bravo, Professor Doherty. You're too good for that school and ought to think about a better future where discourse is free.
One can only wonder why NOW is unwilling to stand up for Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Of all the true women heroes of the movement, she is in the forefront. But we really don't expect leftists organizations like NOW to actually be for anything other than liberal talking points and this one is not, and is too dangerous.
Sarah Fahmy is also quoted as saying: "But it's not just the Muslim community that is upset but students and faculty of all religious beliefs. A university that prides itself on social justice and equality should not hold up someone who is an outright Islamophobic." (sic)
Now we have a representative Muslim Student Association speaking on behalf of all the other religions. I wonder how well that would go over with the Hindus, Jews, and Christians who have been killed in the name of religion? And let's not forget the atheists and gays. They're to be thrown from high places, for Allah doesn't stand for that stuff.
Brandeis University has made its bed and it looks like they've taken the Caliphate with them. They are not representative of free discourse in learning; they represent the world of the Dhimmie, the enabler. And like Winston Churchill said of the enabler, they feed the alligator hoping it will eat them last.
Their time will come. Islam will come for them soon.
In my latest novel, a New York reporter is taken hostage by terrorists. If POTUS refuses to release 3 Gitmo jihadists, the reporter will die in 24 hours—they will behead him and show it on the Internet. There is only one way out but the clock is ticking . . .
