University Will Not Award Honorary Degree to Woman Because She Has Made Comments Critical of Islam
The Blaze/AP ^ | Apr. 8, 2014

BOSTON (AP) — Brandeis (BRAN’-dys) University in Massachusetts has decided not to award an honorary degree to a woman who has made comments critical of Islam.

The decision follows complaints from students, faculty members and others about honoring Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali (ah-YAHN’ HUR’-see AH’-ee).

In a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine, Ali was quoted saying that “we are at war with Islam” and urged that Muslims be “defeated.”

The university’s Facebook page is getting blown up right now. If you’re on Facebook, add a comment!

This is what happens when people like the Indonesian dope-smoking Muslim homosexual in our White House invites in the Muslim Brotherhood.

Liberty has fled our nation.

She should be thankful that it's not an Islamist university..

[Muslims] stitch the mouth and eye shut on . . . [young woman]

Zip your lip! For Islamists it's not just jargon!

I went to college down east in the sixties and Brandeis was already a lunatic asylum. I see it has not mended its ways.

Did Ms. Ali ask Brandeis to give her an honorary degree?

there is only one truth, His Name is Jesus.

izzlam is a death cult with perverted, demonic members dedicated to the destruction of anything other than them.

It transcends IRONY that a Jewish university would do this! Actually, it’s mind blowing given the muzzies stated goal to KILL ALL THE JEWS AND WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

Are these people stupid or just nucking futs?? Looks like I need to expand my belief that America has lost its mind to the WORLD has gone insane!

Brandeis has been crammed full of left-wing, Jew-hating Jews for as long as I can remember. This is not a surprise, I’m afraid.

Yeah, well... it means that the Muslims will be able to laugh at them while they're murdering them.

Here is her bio on Wiki...

Ayaan Hirsi Ali

They won't take the word of someone who was born in the thick of it.
Maybe when the muzzies make Brandeis a smoking hole in the ground.

Justice Brandeis just shit a brick, in his coffin.

What was once a great school of learning is today a leftist anti-Israel, anti-US, anti-freedom shithole of Political Correctness re Islam and Sharia mentality.

And my cousin graduated from there. Well, she’s a little weird anyway but a nice person.

Remember, this college is located in Massachusetts, a state which has proportionally given us more communists (and spies) and Democrat crooks than any other place except New York City, Chicago, Detroit, and the whole state of California.

Whoa, it is a Jewish University? Holy crap, I just thought all the obnoxious people I met on the upper east of Manhattan just like spending all their $ at the school. Go figure, 15 years later, I now know this. I swear, I went a Jewish wedding on Long Island and I thought I was at Brandies alumni event.

Perhaps instead they can give CAIR an honorary medal for 9/11

She should make comments critical of Christianity. They would give her the whole school.

Sounds like an honorary degree not worth having anyway.

Islam and the Rest of Us

by Mark Steyn • Mar 14, 2014

A couple of days ago, you’ll recall, we featured current controversies over a metal cross retrieved from the rubble at Ground Zero, and a roadside cross marking a fatal accident in Lake Elsinore, California. American Atheists and the American Humanist Association are suing over both outrageous provocations.

On the other hand, as far as I’m aware, American atheists and humanists have no plans to bring any separation-of-church-and-state suits against the City of Minneapolis, for its observance at City Hall last month of “Hijab Day”.

Female members of the city council wore the hijab, as did the Chief of Police, Janeé Harteau, a lesbian who recently married her “favorite sergeant”, Holly Keegel. I have no idea what Sgt Keegel wore for Hijab Day. Maybe she went as the Grand Mufti.

Hijab Day grows a little bigger around the world each year. Its purpose is to enable the rest of us to show our support for women who choose to go covered. In reality, for most Muslim women around the world, the choice is made for them - by men. In Afghanistan under the Taliban, women were forbidden by law from ever feeling sunlight on their faces.

Maybe most of them would have “chosen” not to feel it anyway, but we’ll never know, will we? And in the west young Muslimas who decline their fathers’ and husbands’ choices do so at their own peril:

Why aren’t Noor Almaleki and Aasiya Hassan as famous as Matthew Shepard? They weren’t in up-country villages in the Pakistani tribal lands. They were Americans – and they died because they wanted to live as American women.

Nonetheless, on Hijab Day, non-Muslim women like Minneapolis’ Police Chief demonstrate their support for the right of women to “choose” to go covered by enthusiastically joining in. City Hall staffer Ilhan Omar enthuses: “I love cross-cultural sharing.” So do I! Now that the lesbian police officers have spent the day in hijabs, when are we having Pride Day at the mosque?

~You can, however, carry “cross-cultural sharing” too far:
Saudi Cleric Issues Fatwa Against All-You-Can-Eat Buffets

~In Iraq, meanwhile, they’re considering revisions to the marriage laws:

A new law being considered in Iraq could lead to girls as young as eight getting married and wives having to submit to sex at their husband’s every request.

America and its allies expended a decade’s worth of blood and treasure in Iraq, but we left no trace - because we were too polite to do any “cross-cultural sharing” of our own. So we live in a world of remorseless, incremental one-way multiculturalism - which is, ultimately, far more powerful than the laughably misnamed “shock and awe”.

~Since 9/11, those westerners who tolerate the avowedly intolerant have sought refuge in equivalence. Okay, in Afghanistan they build a wall specifically for the purpose of crushing homosexuals underneath it, and in Iran they behead you for bebottoming, but come on, a lot of these Christians are pretty homophobic, aren’t they?

And yeah, the clitoridectomy clinics are doing a roaring trade and there seems to be a lot more honor killing around than there used to be, but Republicans want to cut off Sandra Fluke’s free contraceptives in her late 30s, don’t they?
My old editor Jonathan Kay attempts a subtler version of this argument in a National Post column with the eye-catching title, “Shariah With A Jewish Face”, which is his characterization of the preferred lifestyle of Israel’s ultra-orthodox communities:

Haredim exhibit a level of misogyny and sexual phobia that is more commonly associated with militant Muslim fundamentalists. Public spaces in Haredi communities are rigidly segregated by sex. In extreme cases, the women even dress in Jewish burquas (colloquially referred to as “frumkas,” a play on a Yiddish word indicating piety).

What’s worse, Haredim have demanded that the wider Israeli society adapt to their primitive views — insisting, for instance, that bus lines offer sex-segregated service, that advertising should be free of female faces or bodies, and that beaches maintain separate areas for men and women.

The Haredim don’t, on the other hand, go in for female genital mutilation and child marriage. Nor, as significant numbers of Minnesota’s Somali hijabi do, do they send their sons back to Somalia as suicide bombers. And I would be surprised if they’ll ever impress their “cross-cultural sharing” upon Israeli gays as easily as Muslims do upon Minneapolis’ feminist council members and lesbian police chiefs.
