Muslim Law Students’ War Against Free Speech
Robert Spencer’s real big problem is our problem too:
Today he posted this, fromÂ Facebook:
The 1st Amendment & Professional Responsibility in a Republic!
***Gourmet food and dessert will be provided.***
Read it all….
Comment from Hugh Fitzgerald:
The emphasis on food is quite something. “Gourmet food,” “Middle-Eastern food…” In some of the on-line sites I have found run by Muslims, giving advice to other Muslims as to how to get special treatment for your children — prayer rooms in schools, changes in the curricula, etc. — parents are given advice not only on inviting administrators for supper, but what foods to serve.
I have my own experience, and can also report on that of others, who have gone to these Interfaith-Healing nights, these Mosque Outreach Nights, where Christians, or Jews — but seldom Christians and Jews at the same time because at these meetings the Muslims want to stress, for the Christians, just how much they really have in common (with the Jews impliedly odd-man out of the “three abrahamic faiths”) and then, with the Jews, they want to stress just how much Jews and Muslims have in common (with the Christians impliedly odd-man out), and having them both, at the same time. The pitch is always the same: abrahmic faiths, monotheisms, all share the same God, blablabla. No mention of the details — Bani Qurayza, Khaybar Oasis, Asma bint Marwan, Abu Afak, little Aisha — of Muhammad’s life and no imparting of information about how central Muhammad is to the whole thing. Of course no mention of the Hadith. As for the Qur’an — they are counting on no one being able to quote 9.29, 9.5, or another 50-100 verses, and not to know about naskh, or abrogation, indeed not to know a damn thing, but simply and smilingly to accept what is said, while all the while thinking of that chicken-with-pita and the basmati rice, and the honey-with-pistachios or some variant thereof, that is what you are now thinking of, and part of the reason you came.
For many of the law students, take away the food, and 2/3 of the audience would not come.
They’ve got this down to a science. They work on this stuff full time….
