Ayaan Hirsi Ali responds to Brandeis snub
American Thinker ^ | 4/10/2014 | Rick Moran

Posted on 04/10/2014 7:38:18 AM PDT by rktman

Former Muslim and human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali has issued a statement in response to the action by Brandeis University in withdrawing an honorary degree they were going to present to her at the 2014 commencement ceremony.

Ali called out the school's administration who would "so deeply betray its own founding principles."

This woman has a remarkable story. I would say that brand-ice should be ashamed but these clowns have no shame. Free speech for me but not for thee. Maybe we should gather in a "free speech zone" to express ourselves. I kinda thought that the "free speech zone" extended from the east coast to the west coast and the Gulf of Mexico to the kanook border. Looks like my mistake. Noticed in down town Reno a posted sign that states a certain area is a free speech zone. WTF?!

Intolerant modern liberals find the truth unsettling so seek to limit its exposure.

free speech is only OK if it doesn’t hurt someone’s feelings

if someone is offended, then cry for censorship

Isn’t that what Louis Brandeis, the first Jewish justice in the USSC, stood for?

Only if it doesn't hurt a liberal's feelings.

The best way to show support is to buy one of her books. They are at I bought one of her books, new, today. She will make money from it and get notification of the number of books sold in a few days. Plus Amazon will see that people are supporting the courageous woman who dares criticize the violent, world-domination ideology that she fled.

I believe this has more to do with cowardice than with political correctness.

Brandeis is a Jewish university.

For them to confer any honor on an anti-Mohamedan is an invitation to every MoHamHead suicide bomber to blow up the university.

Also, to further annoy liberals, I went to Robert Spencer’s site and clicked on a book that he displayed. That book was linked as an affiliate. I then bought Ali’s book. Spencer picked up a dollar or so from that purchase.

I just finished her book a few weeks ago. Incredible story, indeed! I'll never understand the left and their motives, I just won't.

Mary, Martyr for the Cross; Obama, Muslim Brotherhood Enabler

By Judi McLeod

Canada Free Press 4/9/2014

The horrific, only-days-ago murder of Coptic Christian Mary Sameh George, in a suburb of Cairo, can honestly be laid at the feet of shameful Muslim Brotherhood booster President Barack Hussein Obama.

Rioting Muslim Brotherhood supporters attacked the Virgin Mary and Archangel Michael Coptic Orthodox Church, opening fire on it and setting parked cars aflame on March 28. Four innocents died in the attack.A true evil that should be shouted from rooftops, it went down with neither whisper nor whimper in the nothing-to-lose Mainstream Media of the Free West, with only the courageous, American columnist/author Raymond Ibrahim calling attention to it.

Parked by the church, where she was delivering medicine to an elderly, sick woman, Mary Sameh George was savagely mauled and molested before being murdered—all because a cross hanging on her rear view mirror easily identified her as a Christian.

Nightmarish in impact, the eyewitness details of Mary’s death on the Egyptian program 90 Minutes, is not for the fainthearted:

“Once they saw that she was a Christian [because of the cross hanging on her rear view mirror], they jumped on top of the car, to the point that the vehicle was no longer visible. The roof of the car collapsed in. When they realized that she was starting to die, they pulled her out of the car and started pounding on her and pulling her hair—to the point that portions of her hair and scalp came off. They kept beating her, kicking her, stabbing her with any object or weapon they could find…

Throughout [her ordeal] she tried to protect her face, giving her back to the attackers, till one of them came and stabbed her right in the back, near the heart, finishing her off. Then another came and grabbed her by the hair, shaking her head, and with the other hand slit her throat. Another pulled her pants off, to the point that she was totally naked.” -Ray Ibrahim, ‘Muslim Brotherhood Slaughter Christian Woman’, March 30, 2014.

“The eyewitness, as well as many others who have since appeared on videos, complained about Egyptian State Security and how it did not intervene—just like under Morsi, when St. Mark Cathedral was besieged, even as security stood by—how it knows exactly who the murderers are, and how one of Mary’s murderers, whom “everyone reported to Security,” was simply relaxing in his home, not even hiding.

“Added the eyewitness: “Let me tell you, here in Ain Shams, we [Christians] know that every Friday is a day of death; that the day after Friday, Saturday, we’ll be carried to the morgue!”

“In fact, the overwhelming majority of attacks on Egypt’s Christians occur on Friday—the day when pious Muslims meet in mosque for prayers and to hear sermons,” Ibrahim continued.

“The significance of this fact can only be understood by analogy: what if Christians were especially violent to non-Christian minorities on Sunday—right after they got out of church? What would that say about what goes on in Christian churches?

“What does it say about what goes on in Muslim mosques?” Obama, an unabashed supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, got away with blaming an obscure YouTube and a riot for the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi, Libya.

A video of Mary’s family members, with one woman calling out Obama for what he truly is, is real and should send chills down the spines of each and every Obama supporter:

“A message to [U.S. President Barack] Obama, who is calling for the Brotherhood to return to power again. I want to tell him, have mercy, enough is enough! His brother is in the al-Qaeda organization! Why do you want to destroy Egypt?…Egypt will remain whether you, the Brotherhood, or anyone else likes it or not!”

Notes Ibrahim: “She was referring to something that is as well known in Egypt as it is little known in the United States: that the Obama administration is a sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood, which itself is connected to al-Qaeda.”

The rest of the history

For crying out loud, all this woman has done so far is shine the light of truth on Islam’s treatment of its women but the daily atrocities perpetrated on Christians in the Muslim world have never been discussed.

Wish that Megan Kelly would show this murderous aspect of Islam on the ‘Kelly Files’ instead of concentrating on the way that it treats its women.

What Islam does to its women in private should be of lesser importance to the world than the horrors it perpetrates internationally.

In this feminist world, it seems that the fate of Muslim women are thought to be of more importance than that of Christian women, men and children.

So far America has been spared the homicide bombers that scourge the Middle East & Central/SW Asia.

The first time a suicide bomber kills civilians on American soil or blows up a public building it will be open season on muzzies here, and they know it. Just the display of beards or burkas will be like screaming “Allahu Akbar!!” at any nearby “infidel”.

And here in the belly of the `Great Satan’, the “infidels” are the supermajority and they have guns. This isn’t Egypt or Pakistan.

That said, it’s my opinion that the Brandeis administration is probably more afraid of losing CAIR/Saudi petrobucks than they are of Omar & Achmed going splodeydopes on them.

A shameful retraction on their part. After all, though we “infidels” admire Ayaan Hirsi Ali, she is an atheistic feminist and isn’t that almost goddesslike in the liberals’ world? Oh - I keep forgetting the anti-Islam about her.
