Brandeis Caves to Islamic Supremacist Thuggery

by Robert Spencer

Ayaan-Hirsi-Ali

Brandeis University had planned to award an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali at its commencement ceremony this year, but after a smear campaign led by the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Islamic supremacist groups, on Tuesday the university issued a statement announcing the predictable result: the honorary degree would not be given.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Brandeis assured the world, “is a compelling public figure and advocate for women’s rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world.” However, as compelling as Brandeis may have considered that work, ultimately it didn’t matter: “That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.  For all concerned, we regret that we were not aware of these statements earlier.”

The Brandeis statement did not mention CAIR, and probably university administrators are unaware of its Hamas ties or its record of opposing any and all counter-terror efforts. Nor did the statement specify exactly what in Hirsi Ali’s past statements was “inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.” CAIR, however, did so in its press release (also issued Tuesday; Brandeis snapped into line quickly) which quoted Hirsi Ali from a 2007 interview saying: “I think that we are at war with Islam.”

Ironically, CAIR spokesmen have said the same thing: “The new perception is that the United States has entered a war with Islam itself,” said then-CAIR Board Chairman Parvez Ahmed in July 2007. The only difference is that Hirsi Ali and CAIR are on opposite sides of this war. Is it unacceptable at Brandeis, a contradiction of its core values, to oppose the global jihad? Apparently so.

In the same interview, Hirsi Ali also called for the closing of Islamic schools in the United States. While that is indeed a severe and questionable recommendation, it should be remembered that Ayaan Hirsi Ali attended Islamic schools in her native Somalia. She no doubt also has seen the reports from all over the world showing hatred and violence being taught in all too many Islamic schools. In that same interview she said: “Asking whether radical preachers ought to be allowed to operate is not hostile to the idea of civil liberties; it’s an attempt to save civil liberties. A nation like this one is based on civil liberties, and we shouldn’t allow any serious threat to them. So Muslim schools in the West, some of which are institutions of fascism that teach innocent kids that Jews are pigs and monkeys—I would say in order to preservecivil liberties, don’t allow such schools.”

Is calling for the schools that teach hatred and contempt of an entire group of people against the core values of Brandeis University? Apparently it is….

CAIR’s Jihad against Honor Diaries

by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

….CAIR has a very close relationship with another Muslim Brotherhood creation, the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) – an Islamic-supremacist think-tank we’ve also discussed in these pages (see, e.g., here). As Steve Emerson points out, disclosure forms IIIT filed with the IRS show thousands of dollars in contributions to CAIR. IIIT was also a major financial backer of Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative Sami al-Arian, whom CAIR continued to champion even after his guilty plea to a terrorism charge.

As I’ve previously recounted, IIIT is one of the influential Islamic academic outfits that have endorsed Reliance of the Traveller, the English translation of the classic sharia manual, `Umdat al-Salik. Indeed, the endorsement, written by IIIT’s then-president, Taha Jabir al-`Alwani, is included in the introduction section of the published manual. Dr. Alwani, a revered figure in Muslim Brotherhood circles, highly recommended Relianceas both a “textbook for teaching Islamic jurisprudence to English-speakers” and a legal reference for sharia scholars.

Here are just some of the things Reliance teaches about the treatment of women under Islamic law (with supporting citations to sections of the manual):

While retaliation is generally obligatory for the killing of a Muslim, there is to be no retaliation against “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (Reliance o1.1 & o1.2.) This provision, among others, provides sharia justification for honor killing.

Female “circumcision” is obligatory (although only recommended or considered “a mere courtesy to the husband” in some Islamic legal schools); it consists of “removing the prepuce of the clitoris.” (Reliance e4.3.)

“It is recommended for a guardian to offer his marriageable female charges in marriage to righteous men.” For purposes of marriage, a woman must have a male guardian. A father or grandfather may compel his virgin daughter or granddaughter to marry a suitable match without her consent. A man may offer his prepubescent daughter in marriage provided that the marriage payment is sufficient. (Reliance m2.1, m3.4, 3.7, 3.13, m8.2.)

“It is obligatory for a woman to let her husband have sex with her immediately when (a) he asks her (b) at home (c) and she can physically endure it.” (Reliance m5.1.)

A Muslim woman may only marry a Muslim man; a Muslim man may marry up to four women, who may be Muslim, Christian, or Jewish (but no apostates from Islam). (Reliance m6.0 & ff. – Marriage.)

A woman is required to be obedient to her husband and is prohibited from leaving the marital home without permission; if permitted to go out, she must conceal her figure or alter it “to a form unlikely to draw looks from men or attract them.” (Reliance p42.0 & ff.)

If a wife is disobedient or “rebellious,” her husband may hit her (though not “in a way that injures her”) as long as he has first tried to “correct matters” by “admonition and advice” and by refusing to sleep with her. (Reliance m10.12.)

A non-Muslim may not be awarded custody of a Muslim child. (Reliance m13.2-3.)

A woman has no right of custody of her child from a previous marriage when she remarries “because married life will occupy her with fulfilling the rights of her husband and prevent her from tending to the child.” (Reliance m13.4.)

It is unlawful for women to leave the house with faces unveiled. (Reliance m2.3.)

It is unlawful for a woman to show any part of her body to an adolescent boy or a non-Muslim woman. (Reliance m2.7.)

The testimony of a woman is worth half that of a man. (Reliance o24.7.)

A woman’s inheritance rights are worth half that of a man. (Reliance L6.3 & L6.4.)

If a case involves an allegation of fornication (including rape), “then it requires four male witnesses.” (Reliance o24.9.)

The penalty for fornication outside marriage (for a woman or a man) is to be stoned to death, unless one is without the “capacity to remain chaste,” in which case the penalty is “being scourged one hundred stripes and banished to a distance of at least 81 km./50mi. for one year.” (Reliance o12.0 & ff.) Note that because the witness requirement for rape can rarely be met, and because a woman who cannot prove she has been raped (if the rapist is not her husband) will be found to have fornicated outside marriage and thus subject to fornication penalties, rape often goes unreported in sharia societies.

If a Muslim woman (or a man) apostatizes from Islam, the penalty is death. Apostasy includes not only renouncing Islam but, among other things, speaking words that imply disbelief, denying Islamic obligations, and being “sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law.” (Reliance o8.0& ff., o9.0 & ff.)

The penalty for homosexual activity (“sodomy and lesbianism”) is death. (Reliance p17.0 & ff.)

The establishment of a caliphate is obligatory, and the caliph must be Muslim and male. “The Prophet . . . said, ‘Men are already destroyed when they obey women.’” (Reliance o25.0 & ff; see also p28.0, on Mohammed’s condemnation of “masculine women and effeminate men.”)

So will CAIR, the vaunted “civil rights” organization, be issuing one of its scathing condemnations against its friends at IIIT for endorsing an interpretation of sharia that permits honor killing, female genital mutilation, violence against women, coerced marriages, arranged child marriages, polygamy, inequality under law, and the denial – by savage means – of liberty, privacy, and freedom of conscience?…

The FBI: Between a Rock and a Hard Place of Truth

by EDWARD CLINE

…The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been the point man in a campaign to eviscerate the ability of the U.S. military, the Bureau and other law enforcement entities to detect and foil Islamic terrorism (or jihad) in the United States. At the behest of CAIR, which accused the Bureau (and other law enforcement entities) of being complicit or encouraging Islamophobia in its training materials, and under pressure from President Barack Obama and the Department of Justice, the Bureau donned politically correct blinders which virtually excluded Islam from being an active threat to American lives and the security of the country. USA TODAY in February 2012 reprinted a story from the Detroit Free Press, “FBI ditches training materials criticized as anti-Muslim”:

After complaints from some Muslim and Arab-American groups, the FBI has pulled more than 700 documents and 300 presentations that stereotyped Islam or were factually inaccurate, an FBI spokesman said. The federal agency also intends in coming weeks to roll out plans on how it will vet training materials.

FBI Director Robert Mueller announced the agency had pulled the documents at a meeting two weeks ago with advocacy groups. “The steps taken by the FBI … are certainly welcomed,” Abed Ayoub, the national director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, said Friday.

How does one “stereotype” Muslims who subscribe to an ideology that calls for turning the U.S. into an Islamic republic and its non-Muslim citizens into jizya-paying dhimmis? How would one “stereotype” Nazis, or Communists, except to focus on the political ends of an ideology that employs force and extortion to attain political power over a nation?

Not content with having forced the Bureau into submission, CAIR and its allies have also gone after local law enforcement departments. CAIR announced on February 14th 2014:

A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization today called on the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Department in Virginia to drop notorious anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist John Guandolo, who is scheduled to offer a three-day program later this month on “Jihadi Networks in America.

“In a letter to the sheriff delivered today, Corey Saylor, director of the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia, wrote in part: “Mr. Guandolo has a lengthy record of anti-Muslim extremism and unprofessional behavior. His views on Islam are the equivalent of historical anti-Catholic and anti-Semitic falsehoods. Guandolo offers only his own prejudiced and inaccurate conspiratorial views, not solid counterterrorism training.”

As noted by the Southern Poverty law Center (SPLC), Guandolo is “a disreputable character, who regularly attacks the U.S. government, claims that the director of the Central Intelligence Agency is a secret Muslim agent for the Saudi government and says that American Muslims ‘do not have a First Amendment right to do anything.’”

It was a Wired writer, Spencer Ackerman, who on September 14th 2011, wrote a lengthy report that “exposed” the FBI’s “anti-Muslim” training materials that added fuel to the fire.

The FBI is teaching its counterterrorism agents that “main stream” [sic] American Muslims are likely to be terrorist sympathizers; that the Prophet Mohammed was a “cult leader”; and that the Islamic practice of giving charity is no more than a “funding mechanism for combat.”

At the Bureau’s training ground in Quantico, Virginia, agents are shown a chart contending that the more “devout” a Muslim, the more likely he is to be “violent.” Those destructive tendencies cannot be reversed, an FBI instructional presentation adds: “Any war against non-believers is justified” under Muslim law; a “moderating process cannot happen if the Koran continues to be regarded as the unalterable word of Allah.”

Ackerman provided sixteen pages of PDF images of slides from an FBI presentation on Islam. These pages feature such subjects as “Military Considerations,” “Strategic Themes and Drivers in Islamic Law (Sharia)”, the “Doctrinal Basis for Jihad,” and “Chart Violence and Adherence to Torah, Bible and Koran.” Nothing in those slides contradicts what is known about Islam.

Ackerman’s article was the lit rag on the Molotov cocktail that was tossed by Obama, the DOJ, and CAIR into the Bureau’s counterterrorism training courses.  In fact, comparing the Power Point bullet points in the training materials with what is known about Islam, its 1,400-year history, and especially about the Musim Brotherhood and its allied organizations such as the ISNA, the ICNA, and MSA, it seemed that the Bureau had correctly identified Islam for what it is: a totalitarian ideology.

Ackerman wrote about the “damning” course materials with a gasp of indignation, overlooking the fact that the materials spoke the truth:

The FBI is teaching its counterterrorism agents that “main stream” [sic] American Muslims are likely to be terrorist sympathizers; that the Prophet Mohammed was a “cult leader”; and that the Islamic practice of giving charity is no more than a “funding mechanism for combat….”

“There may not be a ‘radical’ threat as much as it is simply a normal assertion of the orthodox ideology,” one FBI presentation notes. “The strategic themes animating these Islamic values are not fringe; they are main stream.”

Moral: Reading the Aristotelian rule that “A is A” is no guarantee that a person will grasp that A cannot be A and non-A at the same time. If one were able to introduce Ackerman to syphilis-ridden Al Capone as a murdering mobster, he would immediately think that Capone was a persecuted and stereotyped Italian-American, whose syphilis was caused by cultural stress, and call for the FBI to get its mind right….
