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.
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.
Update: 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.
