Yale, Colombia, DC host Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood Leader

How is a Muslim Brotherhood leader who espouses jihad permitted to travel and speak in the U.S.? via The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch.

The Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood has issued a press release reporting that Rachid Ghannouchi, the leader of the Tunisian Ennahda Party, visited the US in late September. According to the release, Mr. Ghannouchi was invited to speak at Yale and Columbia Universities as well as at the US Institute of Peace (USIP):

Rachid GhannouchiWASHINGTON, Oct. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Rached Ghannouchi, the leader of Tunisia’s Ennahdha (Renaissance) Party, visited the U.S. this week to urge lawmakers to publicly support democracy as Tunisia heads for Parliamentary elections on October 26. As the first, post-revolution Arab Spring country to conduct what are expected to be free and fair elections, Tunisia offers a sharp contrast to the region’s extremes.

‘Tunisia’s democratic journey is still nascent – and a visible support for the electoral process and its outcome will be crucial not just for Tunisia, but for the whole region and the U.S.,’ said Ghannouchi. ‘A lot is riding on Tunisia’s elections – it will be one of the most consequential electoral contests the world community will witness.’

Ghannouchi was invited to speak at Yale University in Connecticut and Columbia University in New York, and also addressed the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, DC this week. He reiterated that Tunisia’s consensus-based model will showcase that Islam and democracy can co-exist in the Arab world.

Despite his claim that Ennahda rejects any form of terrorism, in  May 2013, the GMBDW reported that Mr. Ghannouchi had  called for young people to realize that “Jihad belongs in Palestine.” In 2011, Mr. Ghannouchi gave an Arabic-language interview in which he predicted the end of Israel, a viewpoint which is not surprising given that he has had a long history of ties to Palestinian extremism and calls for terrorism. In February 2009, Mr. Ghannouchi was a signatory to the so-called Istanbul declaration that called for the opening of a “third jihadist front” against Israel. The statement was the result of a conference held under the auspices of the Global Anti-Aggression Campaign (GAAC), an international Islamist umbrella group comprised of Islamist scholars tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood as well as Salafi-Jihadi scholars including individuals designated as terrorists by the US government.

Princeton: Brotherhood-founded group gets sharia food in dining halls

via Halal food now available in dining halls – The Daily Princetonian. h/t Islamist Watch.

Halal food is now available on a rotational basis in the residential college dining halls. So far, halal food has been offered two or three times a week in one dining hall each day, although a fixed schedule has not been drawn up yet.

The addition to the menu is a result of the work of the Undergraduate Student Government Dining Policy Initiative, which has been working with the campus Muslim chaplain Imam Sohaib Sultan and the Muslim Students Association since last semester to make halal food more accessible on campus.

The MSA was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Class of 2015 Senator Nihar Madhavan, who led the Dining Policy Initiative, said one of the goals of his project is to ensure that the dining options are meeting the needs of students on campus. Therefore, when President of MSA Sarah Qari ’16 expressed her concerns about the scarcity of halal options, USG started looking for ways to resolve the problem. Qari said that the goal is to make halal food available all days a week.

Qari and Sultan met with Dining Services several times once the initiative began to discuss ways to address the dietary needs of Muslims, Sultan said. He added that Dining Services was “absolutely incredible in terms of wanting to accommodate this request.”

Muslim students were also able to voice their opinions directly when representatives from Dining Services attended the MSA’s Friday prayers.

During their meetings, Qari and Sultan were able to clarify what it meant for food to be halal.

“One of the things that emerged after a while was that for a long time Dining Services thought that when we were asking for halal food, we were expecting certain ethnic foods. They were like, ‘We don’t know how to make that food,’” Sultan said. “But once we clarified to them that it can be whatever food you already make, just with halal meat, the process became so much easier. That was our opening.”

Executive Director of Campus Dining Smith Haneef declined to be interviewed.

Very telling. And that is how sharia creeps…into the smallest of openings.

Soon, like Whole Foods, all the meat will be halal albeit unmarked so no one will know. Except Haneef and the MSA.

 No surprise at Princeton where they are rewriting American history to ensure it too is halal.

Unfortunately, it is happening again, and when Muslims are done with the Jews in the U.S. they will come for the non-Jews in the U.S. They’ve already started.

Dutch Catholic School Cancels Trip To Paris Over Fear Of Muslim Attack

via Dutch Catholic School Cancels Trip To Paris Over Fear Of Militant Attack – Business Insider.

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A Dutch Catholic school called off a one-day trip to Paris for 400 students on Friday because of fears of an attack by Islamic militants in the French capital’s metro, although French officials have cited no evidence of a specific threat.

The graduate students from the southern Dutch town of Etten-Leur had been set to leave on Friday but the school said in a statement that the trip had been canceled as a precaution after media reports about possible militant violence in France.

“The chance that something happens to our students is low, but we are ultimately responsible,” Peter van Heusden, head of Catholic school KSE, said. “Concerns were expressed by parents and teachers about the terrorist threat.”

France and the Netherlands have joined the U.S.-led air strike campaign targeting Islamic State, whose ultra-radical forces have captured large swathes of Iraq and Syria and slaughtered those who resist them.

Dutch security officials said there was now a slightly higher risk of an attack against the Netherlands, although they kept the official threat level at one stage below the highest.

Asked about the canceled trip at a press briefing on Friday, Prime Minister Mark Rutte declined comment. He repeated statements from state authorities earlier this week who called on Dutch citizens to continue to go about their normal lives.

 Now that is Islamophobia. And that’s the result of rampant, unchecked immigration and hijrah.

Lawsuit forces Tennessee school district to allow speech critical of sharia law

vforvictory3

Rare but important victory. Thank you John. via Freedom X – Freedom X lawsuit forces Tennessee school district to allow politically incorrect after-school speech critical of Sharia.

KNOXVILLE – After canceling a town hall meeting at the request of Muslim activists, a Tennessee school district and two school officials have settled a lawsuit over the public’s right to voice concerns about the growing acceptance of Islamic law, known as Sharia law, spreading through American communities. The settlement was finalized Wednesday evening when the district approved a policy barring school officials from selectively determining which subjects can be discussed by members of the public using school facilities.

In February, the Knoxville chapter of ACT! for America, an organization opposed to Sharia, planned an after-hours town hall meeting at a local area high school. Dr. Bill French, an expert on Islam, and Matt Bonner of Crescent Project, a Christian ministry reaching out to Muslims with the Gospel, were scheduled to speak at the event.

John Peach, president of the Knoxville chapter of ACT! for America, and French sued the school district in U.S. District Court on August 4, 2014, for violating their First Amendment right of free speech and their Fourteenth Amendment rights of equal protection and due process. The county agreed to settle the lawsuit [Peach vs. Knox County Schools] just 21 days after it was filed. In addition to revising its facility use policy, the county will pay attorneys fees and costs.

The new facility use policy states in part that “[a]pproval for use of school buildings and property will not be withheld based upon the content of the message or viewpoint of the applicant.”

“This is a victory for free speech,” said Bill Becker, president of Freedom X, a non-profit legal organization fighting discrimination against conservatives and Christians. “Sharia is incompatible with our constitutional and legal protections. That was the message Knox County school officials tried to censor. It is unfortunate we have to educate the educators about our freedoms, but we are thankful that Knox county attorneys recognized litigation would have been futile for the district.”

Knox County Schools superintendent James P. McIntyre, Jr., agreed to cancellation of ACT’s event after receiving letters from Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the Council for American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”) and AbdulRaman Murphy, a Muslim youth chaplain at the University of Tennessee. The activists falsely labeled ACT! a “hate group” and falsely characterized French as a bigot. They speculated the town hall meeting would encourage violence at the school and would disrupt the school environment.

After receiving the letters, Farragut High School’s principal at the time, Michael F. Reynolds, contacted McIntyre fearing that allowing the town hall meeting to take place would convert the school into “a public forum for harassment and bullying practices that contradict the open-minded, academic discussion we seek to teach and foster.”

In 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court held in Tinker v. Des Moines Sch. Dist. that “in our system, undifferentiated fear or apprehension of disturbance is not enough to overcome the right to freedom of expression. Any departure from absolute regimentation may cause trouble. Any variation from the majority’s opinion may inspire fear. Any word spoken, in class, in the lunchroom, or on the campus, that deviates from the views of another person may start an argument or cause a disturbance. But our Constitution says we must take this risk and our history says that it is this sort of hazardous freedom — this kind of openness — that is the basis of our national strength and of the independence and vigor of Americans who grow up and live in this relatively permissive, often disputatious, society.”

Terror-linked CAIR should reimburse taxpayers for the costs incurred by the foolish school officials who listened cowered to the Hamas-linked group’s demands.
