UC Berkeley Professor Cancels Class After Students Complain About ‘Militarized Campus’ For Shapiro Speech

Dear all —

I’ve heard from some of your classmates that they do not feel safe coming to a militarized campus on Thursday. Given the reality of what’s going on, I don’t feel like it’s ethical to hold class when some are not in a position to attend.

So we will not hold a regular class on Thursday. However, Kel and I will be in our usual classroom on Thursday 3:10-4:30 holding voluntary office hours. If you cannot be on campus on Thursday, email me and I guarantee I will find a time for us to meet early the following week. Kel is similarly available, you should email them for specifics.

Sorry we’ve had to do this, but in the context of the current attack on campus, I don’t feel like we have a choice.

    “Become ungovernable”—Just what Islam wants:

    Famous Koran commentator Maududi wrote:
    “The purpose for which the Muslims are required to fight is not, as one might think, to compel the unbelievers into embracing Islam. Rather, its purpose is to put an end to the rule of the unbelievers so that the latter are unable to rule over people.”
