Brandeis University is under fire for yanking its offer for a honorary degree to fierce Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Dutch parliamentarian.

Brandeis University in Massachusetts announced Tuesday that it had withdrawn the planned awarding of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a staunch critic of Islam and its treatment of women, after protests from students and faculty.

The university said in a statement posted online that the decision had been made after a discussion between Ali and university President Frederick Lawrence.

“She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women’s rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world,” said the university’s statement. “That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.”

Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making comments critical of Islam. That includes a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine in which she said of the religion, “Once it’s defeated, it can mutate into something peaceful. It’s very difficult to even talk about peace now. They’re not interested in peace. I think that we are at war with Islam. And there’s no middle ground in wars.” Source: Fox News

Here we go again, Koran-burning Florida pastor Terry Jones is at it again. He was arrested on felony charges this afternoon in Polk County, Florida.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Jones was arrested after a traffic stop. He was reportedly riding in a pickup truck with nearly 3,000 kerosene soaked Korans inside the truck bed. He was also towing a barbecue grill behind the truck, the Tampa Tribune reports.

Terry Jones had planned to burn 2,998 Korans in the Tampa Bay area on Wednesday at 5 p.m. I know this nutjob wouldn’t want to see Muslims burning 2,998 copies of the Bible, would he?

Moroccan Teen Amina Commits Suicide After Being Forced to Marry her Rapist

Moroccan teen Amina commits suicide by eating rat poison found in the home of her husband’s family after a judge ruled that the 16 year old teenager must marry her rapist. This is even though her family had filed charges against the man.Um, shouldn’t this judge be fired. Wait, this is what Islam tolerates, the denigration of women.

AL ARABIYA NEWS:  “A 16-year-old Moroccan girl has committed suicide after a judge ordered her to marry her rapist, according to Moroccan media reports.

Last year Amina’s parents filed charges against their daughter’s rapist, a man 10 years older than her but it was only recently that a judge in the northern city of Tangier decided that instead of punishing him, the two must be married.

The court’s decision to forcibly marry Amina to her rapist was supposed to “resolve” the damage of sexual violation against her, but it led to more suffering in the unwelcoming home of her rapist/husband’s family.

Traumatized by the painful experience of rape, Amina decided to end her life by consuming rat poison in the house of her husband’s family, according to the Moroccan daily al-Massae.”

James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen Arrested in Terror Plot against Jewish Synagogues

UPDATE

Maybe this case isn’t all it is cracked up to be. Heads will roll if this was a witch hunt on the part of the FBI. Here’s an interesting take from Robert Dreyfuss of “The Nation.” CLICK HERE

James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen, all of Newburgh, were charged with conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction within the United States and conspiracy to acquire and use anti-aircraft missiles, the U.S. attorney’s office said. The FBI arrested the four men earlier today in what authorities called a plot to detonate a bomb outside a Jewish temple and to shoot military planes with guided missiles. These scumbags are a disgrace to the entire human race. Yes, I know they are presumed innocent until proven guilty, but this is a real shame. Why is it that so many black men who go to prison and convert to Islam always end up so bitter against the government and become accessories to the worst possible type of crime against their fellow Americans?

The men had planned to detonate a car with plastic explosives outside a temple in the Bronx neighborhood of Riverdale and to shoot military planes at the New York Air National Guard base at Stewart Airport in Newburgh with Stinger surface-to-air guided missiles, authorities said.

In their efforts to acquire weapons, the defendants dealt with an informant acting under law enforcement supervision, authorities said. The FBI and other agencies monitored the men and provided an inactive missile and inert explosives to the informant for the defendants, a federal complaint said. The investigation had been under way for about a year.

In June 2008, the informant met Cromitie in Newburgh and Cromitie complained that his parents had lived in Afghanistan and he was upset about the war there and that many Muslim people were being killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan by U.S. military forces, officials said. Cromitie also expressed an interest in doing “something to America,” they said in the complaint. Source: Huffington Post

I hope they are all denied bond. I just cannot understand how they could become so brainwashed and fall right in step behind a terrorist establishment. There are many decent, law-abiding and hardworking Muslims living in the United States, but scum like this give a bad name to the religion. These thugs claim to be so religious, but really, would Allah tell you to blow up a building with so many innocent people in His name? I don’t think so and I hope these four dirtbags don’t see the outside of another prison cell for the rest of their lives.
