Evidently Brandeis University is now a sharia zone. Free speech be damned! If a woman who “was personally subjected to genital mutilation, had to flee a forced marriage and is still enduring death threats.[for daring to speak the truth]” does not have the right to expose those very topics then who does? No one as far as CAIR (Council Of Islamic Relations) is concerned. Truth and the freedom of speech are the mortal enemies of CAIR and the insidious cult of islam, which is why islamofascist CAIR fights against them tooth and nail.
(Fox News Insider) –Brandeis University has abruptly yanked an honor for an advocate of women’s rights in the Muslim community.
‘Submission’ a short film by Dutch movie maker Theo van Gogh in association with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The film deals with the oppression of women in many Muslim countries. Van Gogh was murdered by a Muslim in 2004 for making this film.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born woman and U.S. citizen, is known for her efforts to advance women’s rights in communities in Islam. She was personally subjected to genital mutilation, had to flee a forced marriage and is still enduring death threats. She has most recently gained attention for her role in “Honor Diaries.”
Brandeis has withdrawn an honorary degree and an invitation to speak at commencement due to Ali’s detractors, who call her an Islamophobe. The Council on American-Islam Relations is one of the groups that has been vocal against Ali. The group has also pushed against “Honor Diaries.”
Ibrahim Hooper, of the unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-finance trial ] Council on American-Islam Relations, told Megyn Kelly that Ali says Islam itself must be defeated and Muslim schools in America should be shut down. He also said the message of “Honor Diaries” is “hate Muslims, hate Islam.”
“Frankly, I don’t think that Mr. Hooper speaks for Muslims, I don’t think that he speaks for Muslim women,” Ali said tonight on “The Kelly File.” [...]
Decision to withdraw award to human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali ‘hypocritical’ in light of previous awards to hatemongers.
“The decision is a blatant contradiction of past-president Jehuda Reinhartz’s defense of the same award being given to Tony Kushner. When the anti-Israel Kushner was given an honorary degree, Reinhartz said, ‘Mr. Kushner is not being honored because he is a Jew, and he is not being honored for his political opinions. Brandeis is honoring him for his extraordinary achievements as one of this generation’s foremost playwrights, whose work is recognized in the arts and also addresses Brandeis’s commitment to social justice.’”
Similarly, Mael points out, “Hirsi Ali was not being honored for her views on Islam. She was being honored for her commitment to women’s rights and real justice.”
What’s more, Mael points out, Brandeis University has hosted several controversial anti-Israel speakers, including Sam Bahour, an activist who opposes any peace negotiations between the Palestinian Authority and Israel and who believes that Israel does not have the right to exist.
In a 2011 column in the Guardian Bahour wrote, “Israel [is] a settler, colonial, apartheid movement clinging to a racialist, exclusivist ideology. [The Palestinians] were correct to [reject Israel] at the outset of this conflict .”
The decision to rescind Ali’s honor was withdrawn following pressure from several groups, including most prominently the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which sent a letter to the university’s president, Dr. Frederik M. Lawrence, referring to her as a “notorious Islamophobe.”
“She is one of the worst of the worst of the Islam haters in America, not only in America but worldwide,” Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the group, said in an interview on Tuesday. “I don’t assign any ill will to Brandeis. I think they just kind of got fooled a little bit.”
But CAIR itself has been accused of having links to extremist Islamist groups including the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, and the group was directly linked by authorities to an infamous Hamas funding racket known as the Holy Land Foundation.
Mael said that the group played a crucial role in drumming up support for the petition to ban Ali, and that in fact “most of the signatories are from outside the university.”
“This is the same group that has been blocking screening of The Honor Diaries,” he pointed out, referring to CAIR’s controversial campaign to silence a film exposing domestic abuse within the Muslim community. [...]
CAIR holds itself out as America’s foremost Islamic civil rights organization. Under Sharia, however, the Western concept of civil rights does not exist. The analogy to Communist front organizations of an earlier era is striking. While pretending to advocate for freedom and to oppose discrimination, CAIR’s real purpose is to subvert the very society whose liberalism it cynically seeks to exploit.
EDIT: Megyn Kelly’s initial report which CAIR objected to.
Backlash grows as universities cancel or postpone “Honor Diaries” a film that is trying to bring attention to ‘honor violence’ inflicted upon women living under Islam — “systematic institutionalized misogyny”.
Watch the sparks fly between Human rights attorney Brooke Goldstein (SHE ROCKS!!!) and CAIR-Chicago’s Agnieszka Karoluk.

In Islamic law all Non-Muslims are inherently guilty of committing the crime of not believeing in Allah, which is punishable by death. According to Islam all Non-Muslim women are the property and right hand possesions of Muslim men to be used as Melk al-Yamin (sex slaves) by Muslim men.
I am an Ex-Muslim. According to Islam all Non-Muslim lands are Dar ul-Harb (land of war) countries that are to be attacked until they are conquered by Islam. According to Islam the whole world belongs to Islam, the Kufar (infidels) have no right to exist on AllahÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Earth. Muslims will come on here and bring up Crusades to make Christians feel guilty or pretend to be Non-Muslims defending Islam, this is called Taquiyya or Kitman which is lying to the infidel to further the cause of Islam. Muslims killed by infidels while waging Jihad on infidels are considered Shahids (martyrs) and will have the highest place in Jannat (heaven) according to Islam. In fact being a Shahid is the only guaranteed way to get into heaven, for everyone else it is a gamble. Non-Muslims defending Islam have a death wish, as Non-Muslims are considered Najis (unclean) on same level as human excrement, pigs, and dogs according to Islam. Islam is like the mafia, as leaving Islam is punishable by death. [Apostasy -VH]
Muslims talk about Christianity and Crusades. The Crusades were a response to 400 years of unprovoked Jihad against Christian lands. Islam conquered Christian France and Spain for 700 years without any provocation from Christians.
At this rate all democratic nations like the United States will be slowly but surely conquered by Islam, only China knows how to handle this Muslim cancer that is spreading across the globe.
Islam is thegreatest killer of all time, worse than Christianity, fascism or communism. Islamic jihad destroyed a Christian Middle East and a Christian North Africa. Soon it was the fate of the Persian Zoroastrian and the Hindu to be the victims of jihad. The history of political Islam is the destruction of Christianity in the Middle East, Egypt, Turkey and North Africa. Half of Christianity was lost. Before Islam, North Africa was the southern part of Europe (part of the Roman Empire). Around 60 million Christians were slaughtered during the jihadic conquest. Half of the glorious Hindu civilization was annihilated and 80 million Hindus killed. The first Western Buddhists were the Greeks descended from Alexander the GreatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s army in what is now Afghanistan. Jihad destroyed all of Buddhism along the silk route. About 10 million Buddhists died. The conquest of Buddhism is the practical result of pacifism. Zoroastrianism was eliminated from Persia. The Jews became permanent dhimmis throughout Islam. In Africa over 120 million Christians and animists have died over the last 1400 years of jihad. Approximately 270 million nonbelievers died over the last 1400 years for the glory of political Islam. These are the Tears of Jihad which are not taught in any school.

On mainstream news websites, gullible infidels are tricked everyday by Tquiyya practicing Muslims. I was raised in the death cult of Islam, they canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t trick me. Most of the posters defending Islam with Non-Muslim screen names are Muslim imposters. Muslim imposters always claim the violence in the Koran, Sira, and Hadith are taken out of context. This is a blatant lie. Its the very few peaceful Meccan verses in the Koran which were abbrogated and replaced by the numerous violent Medinan verses that are taken out of context. Not that it matters as 60% of the Koran is hatred towards all Non-Muslims, especially Jews and Christians. Muslim imposters also claim that there exists racism against Islam. How can Islam be a race? Can you convert to another race?
May the rage filled deranged tool rot in obscurity…
(Capitol Alert) –A Sacramento County Democratic Party official has resigned over an offensive tweet that involved a fellow Twitter user’s children.
Tempers flared Friday as House Republicans voted to defund President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, which led to some questionable Twitter decisions.
Amanda Carpenter, a speechwriter for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted to urge Republicans on. Then Allan Brauer, communications chair for the Democratic Party of Sacramento County, lashed out with a response involving Carpenter’s kids.
That didn’t sit too well with Twitter users, who raised a chorus of condemnations. The exchange made it to the website of the National Review and to the Drudge Report, both prominent conservative outlets.
“Publicly wishing death on a mother’s children for her political views is an utterly unacceptable tone in partisan discourse,” Sue Blake, chair of the Sacramento County Republican Party, wrote in an email to The Bee. “I ask that my counterparts in the Sacramento Democrat Party repudiate this type of rhetoric and immediately separate themselves from these kinds of partisan attacks on women. [...]
The official statement as released by The Democratic Party of Sacramento County (DPSC):
The Democratic Party of Sacramento County (DPSC) Friday called forÃ‚Â and accepted the resignation of its volunteer communications chair following of series ofÃ‚Â personal twitter comments directed at GOP staff after Republicans voted to defund PresidentÃ‚Â ObamaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s health care law.
Liars, Allan Brauer was ELECTED according to the Democratic Party of Sacramento County website:
DPSC chair Kerri Asbury said the personal twitter comments made by CommunicationsÃ‚Â Committee chair Allan Brauer were Ã¢â‚¬Å“appalling and inexcusable.Ã¢â‚¬Â She accepted his resignationÃ‚Â Friday, and issued the following statement:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The comments by our volunteer communications chair are appalling and inexcusable. No matterÃ‚Â what our political disagreements may be, wishing harm is never an acceptable response duringÃ‚Â heated public debate or any other time. Mr. Brauer has apologized for his comments andÃ‚Â expressed his remorse.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Edit 8/29:Ã‚Â Robert Stacy McCain reveals the background on Pascal’s (whose parents immigrated from Haiti) background image:
Several of DanaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s friends on Twitter misunderstood this, calling Robert a Ã¢â‚¬Å“liberalÃ¢â‚¬Â or Ã¢â‚¬Å“progressive,Ã¢â‚¬Â but he is neither: He is a racialist who hates America because he hates white people.
BTW UAF is the acronym for ‘United Against Fascism’. I know…right!
UAF – Celebrating Violence Against Women in Tower Hamlets
Uploaded on Sep 3, 2011
- “We have spoken to the woman that was assaulted and she was in the downstairs toilet on the coach when Muslims/UAF tore the door open. She was punched in the face and thrown on the floor where she was kicked several times, all by men. When she got up and ran after the bus she was surrounded and further assaulted.
She says she was hit or kicked by at least 20 different males. She has a fractured cheekbone, bruised ribs and internal bruising.
The other people on the bus were having the windows caved in on the other side of the bus and were unaware that anyone was off the bus. Once they realised they piled off the bus but it was too late and they have all been arrested although the charges will never stick.
This is the third time an EDL female has been viciously assaulted by the followers of the “religion of peace”, they love attacking women. Respect to the woman in question as she says she will not stop going demos. Good on you girl thats the British spirit right there.
The good news is police say the whole incident is on CCTV and they expect to make several arrests shortly.

(New York Post) –As coverage of last weekâ€™s flare-up between Bob Woodward and the White House devolved into the granular parsing of words and implications and extrapolations and possible intent, the larger point was roundly missed: the increasing pressure that White House correspondents feel when dealing with the Obama administration â€” to follow their narrative, to be properly deferential (!), to react to push-back by politely sitting down and shutting up.
Finally, this week, reporters are pushing back. Even Jonathan Alter â€” who frequently appears on the Obama-friendly MSNBC â€” came forward to say he, too, had been treated horribly by the administration for writing something they didnâ€™t like.
â€œThere is a kind of threatening tone that, from time to time â€” not all the time â€” comes out of these guys,â€ Alter said this week. During the 2008 campaign swing through Berlin, Alter said that future White House press secretary Robert Gibbs disinvited him from a dinner between Obama and the press corps over it.
â€œI was told â€˜Donâ€™t come,â€™ in a fairly abusive e-mail,â€ he said. â€œ[It] made what Gene Sperling wrote [to Woodward] look like patty-cake.â€
â€œI had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,â€ says one DC veteran. â€œShe was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names â€” bitch, c–t, a–hole.â€ He complained and was told the matter would be investigated: â€œThey were hemming and hawing, saying, â€˜Weâ€™ll look into it.â€™ Nothing happened.â€
He wound up confronting the author of the e-mail directly. â€œI said, â€˜From now on, every e-mail you send this reporter will be on the record, and you will be speaking on behalf of the president of the United States.â€™ That shut it down.â€
