Let me guess: polygamy, child-marriage, Â female genital mutilation, honour killings, murder of apostates and blasphemers, stoning of adulterous women; is all that and more, like genocide of Jews and all unbelievers, now a Brandeis ‘core value?’ Some bastards have gone off the deep end here, and its high time they get the shoe where it hurts.
A Moment of Shaming
Brandeis University has transformed an accolade into “a moment of shaming” by withdrawing a plan to give an honorary degree to Ayaan Ali Hirsi, a Muslim women’s advocate who has made comments critical of Islam.
Here it is:
“Yesterday Brandeis University decided to withdraw an honorary degree they were to confer upon me next month during their Commencement exercises. I wish to dissociate myself from the university’s statement, which implies that I was in any way consulted about this decision.

Indeed, there is no daylight from within the Islamic framework between the two – Islam is as much political philosophy as it is a religion. As such, it can and must be criticized.
Simply put, Brandeis has once again caved to political correctness. Its claims about valuing all opinions and adhering to “core values” is proven to be a hollow sham.
