Must not tell people what happens in Muslim countries

When, this spring, Brandeis University reneged on its commencement invitation to human-rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, it revealed the cravenness that characterizes many of America’s leading institutions of higher education. The decision of Yale’s William F. Buckley Jr. Program to invite Hirsi Ali to New Haven as part of its speaker series has exposed the same quality in many of that school’s students.

In an open letter sent to Buckley Program student leaders, members of 35 campus groups say they feel “highly disrespected” by the September 15 lecture “Clash of Civilizations: Islam and the West.”

The letter, drafted by the Muslim Students Association, lays out their complaints. They are concerned that “Ms. Hirsi Ali is being invited to speak as an authority on Islam despite the fact that she does not hold the credentials to do so.” They accuse Hirsi Ali of “hate speech” and express outrage that she should “have such a platform in our home.” “We cannot overlook,” they write, “how marginalizing her presence will be to the Muslim community and how uncomfortable it will be for the community’s allies.”

Their remedy, of course, is censorship.

If he was critical of christianity and christians complained they were "disrespected" the school would tell them to shut up, its free speech.

The only reason they cave to muslims and not christians is they know christians will not blow them up for disrespecting them!

Islam is a religion where god requires you to send you son to die for him. Christianity is a religion where god sent his son to die for you!

Who better to speak on Islam than one of it's victims? Her credentials are impeccable, they are afraid of course of what she has to say because it paints a very ugly truth about Islam.

Islam is as Islam does. No use trying the "No true Scotsman/Muslim" fallacy.
