  • Hamas-linked CAIR threatens suit as Citadel denies hijab for Muslim cadet

    See, a uniform is supposed to be uniform. It is supposed to convey the idea that all those who wear it are engaged in a common enterprise that is greater than their individual proclivities. To allow Muslim cadets wear hijabs would be to deny the very nature and purpose of the uniform itself, and to allow an expression of the assertion that the cadet’s allegiance to Islam is greater than her allegiance to the Citadel or the U.S. military, which is doubtless true, but not something that the Citadel or the U.S. military ought to be in the business of...

    The Citadel military college has decided a newly accepted Muslim student cannot wear her traditional Muslim headscarf if she enrolls. The South Carolina school announced ....... allowing the student to wear the head covering known as a hijab wouldn't be consistent with the school's policy of having cadets look similar. The school in Charleston is known for its buttoned-up uniforms and close-cropped haircuts that represent the sacrifice of one's self for the greater goals of the unit. "Uniformity is the cornerstone of this four-year leader development model. The standardization of cadets in apparel, overall appearance, actions and privileges is essential...

    CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — A Muslim student admitted to the Class of 2020 Corps of Cadets at The Citadel will not be allowed to wear a religious headscarf with the military college's standard uniform. In a statement released by Citadel President Lt. Gen. John Rosa, the decision to reject the request came from an "essential" need to standardize the appearance of the cadets regardless of their religious requirements. "This process reflects an initial relinquishing of self during which cadets learn the value of teamwork to function as a single unit. Upon graduation, The Citadel's graduates are prepared to enter a...

    A cadet at The Citadel said he is being punished with 33 hours of marching after he revealed in a Facebook post that the school was considering allowing an incoming cadet to wear a hijab in uniform. The cadet, senior political science student Nick Pinelli, said officials at the public military college originally sought to charge him with behavior “unbecoming to a cadet,” a Class I offense that can lead to dismissal under the school’s disciplinary code. Instead, he said the school reduced the charge to “gross poor judgment” and handed him the maximum punishment: 40 “tours,” each consisting of...

    The Washington Post ^ | April 15, 2016 | Susan Svrluga
    The Citadel is considering a request from an admitted student that she be allowed to wear a hijab in keeping with her Muslim faith, a move that would be an unprecedented exception to the school's longstanding uniform requirements. If the request for the traditional Muslim hair covering is granted, it apparently would be the first exception made to the Citadel's uniform, which all cadets at the storied public military college in South Carolina are required to wear at nearly all times. (At beaches, for example, college rules stipulate that, "Cadets will change into appropriate swimwear upon arrival and change back...

    CHARLESTON, S.C.

    The discovery of the Acra last week is "a dream come true" for archaeologists, who have been speculating on the citadel's location for 100 years, the IAA said. The discovery of Acra comes at a delicate time, for it reveals the story of the Maccabees, Antiochus and the coming Antichrist. All this is understood once we connect the dots and see the parallels between the Grecian Empire at the time of the Maccabees harassing God's people and the Antichrist who is also from the same empire (Asia Minor) harassing God's people today.

    On Monday afternoon, the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) sent a newsbrief to reporters in Jerusalem, calling for a press conference the following day to announce the “solution to one of the greatest questions in the history of Jerusalem.” Tuesday’s announcement did not disappoint: On site, in Jerusalem’s City of David, archaeologist Doron Ben-Ami announced that the famed Akra (citadel) of Antiochus Epiphanes had been discovered. Up until that announcement, little had been found testifying to the massive Hellenistic intrusion into the city early in the second century B.C. Yet here, at the northwestern portion of the City of David, a...

    Less than a week after nine people were fatally shot in Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, leaders at The Citadel have voted to remove a Confederate Naval Jack flag from the campus chapel. Dylann Storm Roof, who has been charged in the shootings, was previously photographed posing with the Confederate flag. Many national businesses have vowed to stop selling Confederate merchandise, and hundreds of people rallied in Columbia to remove the Confederate battle flag from the S.C. Statehouse grounds. Lawmakers are expected to debate the flag’s location this summer. One of the victims of the shooting was a Citadel...

    The Board of Visitors at the Citadel voted Tuesday night to remove the Confederate Naval Jack from its chapel on campus. The vote was 9-3 in favor of removing the flag from Summerall Chapel. A Citadel spokesperson says the school needs the General Assembly's permission to remove the flag. According to Citadel officials, the flag was presented to the military college in 1939. The removal of the flag will be done in accordance with the Heritage Act, the spokesperson said.

    No, that is not the number of hits his blog posts got, neither is that what Ben Bernanke will make as the most recent employee of Citadel (at least not for a few years until the the eponymously named helicopter makes a landing and hyperinflation runs wild).It is also not the assets under management held by HFT titan, and Bernanke's new employer, Citadel. As Citadel reminds us in its regulatory filing with the SEC, "as of December 31, 2014, in Funds managed on a discretionary basis, we had approximately $23,804,000,000 in net assets under management."Only.So what does the number...

    An Israeli archaeologist says he has found the legendary citadel captured by King David in his conquest of Jerusalem, rekindling a longstanding debate about using the Bible as a field guide to identifying ancient ruins. The claim by Eli Shukron, like many such claims in the field of biblical archaeology, has run into criticism. It joins a string of announcements by Israeli archaeologists saying they have unearthed palaces of the legendary biblical king, who is revered in Jewish religious tradition for establishing Jerusalem as its central holy city—but who has long eluded historians looking for clear-cut evidence of his existence...

    Yesterday, Phyllis Schlafly traveled to South Carolina to speak to at The Citadel, which now offers a course entitled the "Conservative Intellectual Tradition in America." Speaking to an all-male audience, Schlafly assured them that women don't care about the issue of contraception and warned them not to date feminists: The recent political flap about contraception being an important issue for women is completely contrived by Democrats and the media to divert attention from abortion and other important issues, said conservative political activist Phyllis Schlafly. “Contraception is not controversial,” she said. “The issue is not access. It’s who’s going to pay...

    (CNN) -- With many focused on the Penn State child sex abuse scandal, a South Carolina military college said Saturday it regrets not pursuing an allegation against a camp counselor further than it did. The Citadel released details on one of its alumni, Louis Neal "Skip" ReVille, who faces charges including criminal sexual conduct with a child. In 2007, the college received an allegation that five years earlier, ReVille invited two campers at The Citadel Summer Camp into his room to watch pornography. They did not touch each other, but engaged in sexual activity, the college said. "Though the general...

    HERAT, Afghanistan — In the 1970s, tourists traveled to western Afghanistan to climb on the ruins of an ancient citadel, a fortress resembling a sandcastle that has stood overlooking the city of Herat for thousands of years. The citadel was crumbling then, but today the newly restored structure, dating back to the days of Alexander the Great, is a hopeful sign of progress in a country beset by war. Hundreds of Afghan craftsmen worked to restore the ruins’ past glory with help from the Aga Khan Trust for Culture and about $2.4 million from the U.S. and German governments. The...
