Oklahoma Univ’s arch dean apologizes for wearing Muslim garb after a couple of Muslims complain

It’s not like he equated Muslim terrorists to Nazi’s, he just put on Wahhabi jihadist clothing. via OU Architecture dean apologizes for offense caused by attire – OUDaily.com: News. h/t BNI

The dean of OU’s College of Architecture issued an apology Monday for wearing clothing associated with Islam at a back-to-school meeting.

A photo on the College of Architecture’s Facebook page that has since been deleted showed Dean Charles Graham wearing a white thawb and a red keffiyeh on his head at the meeting on Aug. 20.

In his apology, he said he purchased the garments when he went to Dubai. According to the apology, he asked “a number of [his] Muslim friends around campus and in Norman to see if [his] wearing the attire would be offensive in any religious way,” to which the answers were “all resoundingly ‘no.'”

OU press secretary Corbin Wallace told The Daily in an email that three or four people anonymously contacted the president’s office regarding Graham’s attire. He said Graham took an appropriate step in emailing the apology to faculty and staff.

Graham described himself as “always striving to be inclusive and considerate of others in every context” in his apology, and said his Muslim friends thought wearing the attire would be “a nice gesture of diversity and acceptance of other cultures.”

The College of Architecture has a study abroad program in Dubai which explores building design and construction within the city. The program has sent more than 30 students there in the past couple of years, Graham said in his apology.

Graham welcomes anyone who wants to discuss the matter with him, according to his apology, but declined to comment to The Daily when staff attempted both to call him and to speak with him in person.


Groveling dhimmitude. Apology letter at the link above.

churchill-appeaserUpdate: The groveling continues as OU tries to spin it with, No ‘religious battle’ over Middle Eastern attire, OU dean says

“It’s not a religious issue by any stretch as far as I’m concerned,” he said.

However, a leader with the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Oklahoma (CAIR-OK) chapter, thinks otherwise.

He may not think or want it to be a battle about religion, but Muslims think quite differently. Muslims battle for every inch. They take advantage of every weakness. They are relentless. To them this is a religious battle – and they won. A few anonymous emails or calls and they forced an apology. It won’t stop there.

Even the terrorist-named and HAMAS-linked, sharia-supporting CAIR says it’s about religion. And they want this dhimmi to keep proselytizing. Look for the dean to partner with the known terror-linked group in the future to spread awareness about Islam in the near future.

Christian Woman Interrupts Muslim Prayer inside Oklahoma State Capitol, Police Throw Her Out

Turning the Capitol into a mosque. Fast forward 20 years after millions more Muslims are in your towns and cities. What then?

via Courageous Christian Woman Interrupts Muslim Prayer inside State Capitol Building with the ‘Our Father’; Police Turn Backs on God and Throw Her Out – Walid Shoebat.

As Muslims were gathered inside the Oklahoma state capitol and were praying loudly, a brave Christian interrupted their prayer with the Lord’s Prayer – the Our Father. That’s the good news. The bad news? Police threw her out and allowed the Muslims to continue praying.

Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett is one of the very few politicians who will speak openly about the threat of Islam. During the event that was interrupted by the ‘Our Father’, it was Bennett who passed out Bibles and fliers which included questions like:

“Will you denounce the terrorist organization Hamas?”

As for the woman who began praying the ‘Our Father’, it appears to be the same woman who interrupted Texas Muslims at the Capitol Day last month:

As was the case at the Oklahoma State Capitol, there was one Texas State Rep. who took a stand against similar proceedings in Austin. Her name is Molly White and she put an Israeli flag on her desk while asking all Muslims who entered her office that day to pledge loyalty to the U.S. White was scorched by the media and was even thrown under the bus by the Texas State Speaker Joe Straus. Nonetheless, she didn’t back down, releasing this YouTube video within days:

The woman who shouted the ‘Our Father’ also appears to be the same woman who righteously interrupted Muslim prayers inside the Washington National Cathedral last November:

It’s safe to say that this woman has more guts than the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner, who introduced an Imam on the floor of the house one day prior to the National Cathedral incident, and bowed his head as the Imam delivered a prayer:

 

Terror-linked Islamic Group Holding “Muslim Day” At Oklahoma Capitol 2/27

via Muslim Day To Be Held At Oklahoma Capitol | KGOU.

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced its first ever “Muslim Day” will be held at the Capitol on Friday, Feb. 27. Executive Director Adam Soltani says he expects more than 100 people to attend the event.

Soltani says the event is designed to encourage members of the Muslim faith to be civically engaged and communicate with their lawmakers.

A similar event at the state Capitol in Texas last week sparked outrage after a group of vitriolic protesters heckled Muslim participants. One woman grabbed the microphone and yelled about Islam.

Hopefully, some Sooners will be standing up for freedom and against Islam on 2/27 as well.

Although the Legislature adjourns for the week on Thursdays and members head home, six legislators and an attorney from the ACLU have agreed to meet with the Muslims who come to the Capitol that day: Sen. John Sparks, Rep. Mike Shelton, Rep. George Young, Rep. Emily Virgin, Sen. Anastasia Pittman, and Brady Henderson of the ACLU.

Considering Muslim terror groups are slaughtering blacks across Africa in enormous numbers, it’s surprising black Democrats in Oklahoma have fallen for the Muslim Brotherhood-front group CAIR’s ruse and will actually meet with them.

Events that day will include a panel discussion on racial profiling, and a discussion on religion in public schools.One GOP legislator in particular has been a rather vocal critic of CAIR in recent weeks. And in 2010, Oklahomans overwhelmingly endorsed State Question 755. That measure would have barred the Oklahoma judiciary, when interpreting cases for state law, from considering any court case in which the Islamic system of Sharia law figured prominently in the decision. SQ 755 also forbid Oklahoma jurists from embracing international law as a precedent when making decisions that affected Oklahomans.

 It’s unclear why Oklahoma politicians would meet with the group. Even well-known Democrats shun the terror-front group.

Update: According to NewsOK – who fails to mention CAIR’s terrorist convictions, deportations and other links – there is a protest Facebook page:

A Facebook page called “Protesting Muslim Day at the State Capitol” lists details of a planned protest by a group called Overpasses for America Oklahoma.

Oklahoma: Muslim arrested in knife attack, said Muslims should ‘step up’ beheadings

At least the third Muslim arrested in a beheading-related crime for Islam in less than two months.

via Man arrested, accused of slashing man after heated religious conversation | Oklahoma City – KOCO.com.

A metro man is in jail accused of attacking another man over religion differences.

On Monday authorities responded to a 911 about an assault in the 1400 block of Northeast 11th Street.

Upon their arrival, officers learned the victim, Jerome Bullockand 54-year-old Jimmy Stepney had been arguing about the Bible and the Quran.

The report went on to say Stepney had been making comments about beheading people.

“We were watching the news,” said Bullock. “He said he felt like more Muslims need to step up to the plate and do certain thing. He was talking about beheading people.

Because of the statement, Bullock says he asked Stepney, who’d been staying with the family, to leave.

Stepney complied but eventually came back and started arguing with Bullock.

According to the arrest affidavit, the pair began fighting in the yard after Stepney allegedly punched the victim.

Witnesses told officers that Stepney had a knife and was attempting to stab the victim. That’s when Bullock’s mother, Diane Range, came out with a baseball bat and started swinging at Stepney.

“He was trying to kill my son,” said Range.

Bullock suffered minor cuts from the fight and Stepney was able to walk away.

“I was just trying to pay it forward by helping him out,” said Bullock. “Instead I got a lot of cuts and hurt feelings.”

Stepney is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery.

Atlas Shrugs notes:

Here is an extended interview of his initial ground breaking story.

On a side note, Megyn Kelly picked it up and ran it last night, without credit, link or attribution.  And Kelly didn’t even have Spencer on to discuss.

CAIR’s intimate links with Oklahoma beheader’s jihad-preaching mosque exposed (video)

CAIR’s intimate links with Oklahoma beheader’s jihad-preaching mosque exposed (video)

We told you previously that the imam of the beheader’s mosque was a member of CAIR. Breitbart news has found intimate ties between the two. via Sermons Reveal Close Ties Between Muslim Brotherhood Group CAIR and Beheader’s Mosque.

Breitbart News has found evidence of inextricable bonds between the Oklahoma City Mosque and the group CAIR (Council On American-Islamic Relations). During his September 19, 2014 sermon, Imam Imad Enchassi referred to CAIR Oklahoma City Executive Director Adam Soltani as someone who “doesn’t do anything without consulting me.”

After Alton Nolen’s [aka Jah’Keem Yisrael] beheading of an innocent woman, an unidentified man addressing the congregation said that “CAIR is handling this,” while showing no remorse and making no mention of the victim of the brutal murder.

Breitbart News has also learned that the Imam of the mosque did not truthfully reflect the words of Oklahoma State representative John Bennett in his criticism of Islamist ideologies. The Imam falsely claimed that Bennett had described “American Muslims” as a “cancer that need to be eliminated.”

Shortly after Bennett’s comments criticizing Islam, both CAIR Director Adam Soltani and ISGOC Imam Imad Enchassi had claimed just days prior to the beheading that Muslims and their children had been receiving death threats from Oklahoma residents; going as far as to say that Muslims and their children were under threat of being beheaded and were no longer safe in Oklahoma. Breitbart News has learned that the Imam claimed top FBI officials were called into the mosque to investigate claims of death threats against Muslims.

Below are the highlights of the past two Khutbahs at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City:

Sermon Before Beheading, 9/19/2014:

Words believed to be spoken by Imam Imad Enchassi.

“The last two weeks, brothers and sisters in Islam, our din (religion) has been attacked.”

“We believe in freedom of expression. We believe in freedom of speech, but Subhan Allah (Glorious is God), this politician went above and beyond the freedom of speech. The prophet was attacked, many of the prophets of Islam Subhan Allah were attacked. But this particular politician went above and beyond… We are not passive Subhan Allah.”

“We have death threats against the two faces that aren’t shown on TV. and then i get some people saying: ‘why are you doing that for. You should be wise.’ This is not wisdom, this is cowardness.”

“Brothers and sisters of Islam, slaves and servants of Allah. John Bennett… Two weeks ago he put on his Facebook that you should be worried of all American Muslims, enticing violence against us. We went the right way. Soltani of CAIR doesn’t do anything without consulting with me…”

There you have it. Soltani of CAIR doesn’t do anything without consulting the imam. CAIR works at the behest of the mosque.

Oklahoma: Arab man entered high school, asked suspicious questions near beheading site

One mile from where a Muslim would later behead one woman and attempt to behead another woman. via Police Locate Subject Of Unauthorized Entry At Moore HS – News9.com – Oklahoma City, OK

MOORE, Oklahoma – Police have made contact with a man who was the subject of an unauthorized entry at Moore High School last week.

Police say the man, who has not yet been identified, is cooperating and there is no threat toward the high school. They first announced they were searching for the man on Wednesday.

The incident was not reported to police until Sept. 26. Police held a press conference Wednesday afternoon regarding the incident. Police described the person as an Arab male in his 40s with a thick Arabic accent. They while he was on campus the man contacted two students and a teacher and asked “suspicious” questions.

According to Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis, who spoke during the press conference, the man was able to get inside of the school through an unlocked door at the entrance of the performing arts building. The entire incident only lasted approximately three or four minutes.

Moore Police believe this incident has nothing to do with the attack at Vaughan Foods, which took place days later.

Police say they cannot disclose what questions the man asked until they first make contact with him. However, multiple sources tell News 9 that the man was asking questions about how many police officers worked there on a normal basis and how close the nearest police department was.

The FBI has also looked into this incident.

More information will be released soon. According to Moore Police, the man is not facing any criminal charges at this time.
