Skip to comments.No to Tariq Ramadan
Posted on 08/20/2015 8:14:58 AM PDT by george76
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has lifted the visa ban on the European theoretician of radical Islam and virtuoso Jew-baiter, Tariq Ramadan, allowing him to take up a position similar to that he was offered at Notre Dame University, but which was filled because of his unavailability. At the same time, a U.S. entry prohibition against a South African leftist, Adam Habib of Johannesburg University, was voided.
The decision to admit Tariq Ramadan is profoundly wrong. Adam Habib is an innocuous figure. Tariq Ramadan is not.
Ramadan was first barred from the U.S. in 2004
the denial of his visa was based on his assistance to two Hamas fronts, the Palestinian Welfare and Aid Committee (ComitÃ© de Bienfaisance et de Secours aux Palestiniens or CBSP) and the Palestinian Aid Association (Association Secours Palestinien). The latter is related to CBSP, which was designated by the U.S. Treasury as a terror financier in 2002.
Ramadans dodging on this issue is typical of him, but there remains a great deal of evidence, from his own mouth and pen, that he should continue to be kept out of the U.S. He was born in Switzerland, the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the radical, fundamentalist Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood
Ramadan is additionally objectionable because of his close relationship with the fundamentalist cleric and Shariah promoter Yusuf Al-Qaradawi. Al-Qaradawi, one of the most retrograde representatives of the Muslim intellect today, justifies female genital mutilation, a rare position for an Islamic cleric to adopt openly. He also supports terrorism against Israel, and recently proclaimed that Mahmoud Abbas, head of the Palestinian Authority, should be stoned to death in Mecca based on allegations that Abbas incited Israel to act militarily against Hamas in Gaza.
