Harvard ‘Experts’: Islamophobia Everywhere!

Dictatorships have an interest in magnifying minor problems in liberal democracies in order to divert attention from their own oppression and brutality.  One wonders if this interest played a role in facilitating a recent panel titled “Anti-Muslim Sentiment in the US: Challenges and Perspectives.”  The panel was sponsored by Harvard University’s Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program (AISP), whose eponymous founder is an influential member of the Wahhabi Saudi regime.  As every panelist was either a current or future Harvard alumnus, the event provided evidence of some disturbing trends in elite higher education today.

    Oh yes. If you’re looking for honest scholarship on Islam, the first place you should look is the Prince Alwakleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program.

    Harvard has sold its soul to the Devil for 30 pieces of Saudi silver.

    • It is pathetic.

      It will get worse as the education bubble bursts.

        First they came for the associate professor of basket weaving, but I said nothing….

          Then they came for the gourmet jellybean pattern designers, and I said nothing…

    Were there such a thing as “islamophobia”, then one can say that when a serial rapist is at large in an area the women of the same area are inflicted with rapistphobia.

      If only fruit fly doctors, bowtied science guys and affirmative action astronomers would stay in their area of expertise and stop lecturing us on the dangers of global warming.

            Harry missed the brass ring by a few millimeters throughout his adult life but never gave up trying his best.
            In the end he succeeded because the Irish gangsters in Kansas City needed a politically honest nobody fronting for them and they remembered the guy who took all their relatives to WW1 and brought them all home alive. Then Harry went to Washington and uncovered massive crookedness and profiteering in the pre WW2 crash defense programs.
            That made his bones and he was VP to FDR when FDR died.
            Life is funny.

    I almost stepped in some islamophobia the other day.

      Probably your “sixth sense” detected a rapist in your vicinity. Happens to the best of us. 😉

    The only real “phobia” in all this is “Islamophobia-phobia”.

    The only reason why Islamophobia is everywhere is because Islamists are everywhere.
