(Atlas) It’s hard to watch. American stalwart institutions giving up our most basic freedom to Islamic supremacists, goons and thugs.
I just got the news that Gujrat’s Chief Minister, Sri Narendra Bhai Modi’s speech has been cancelled in the USA, and some other Indian leader may speak in his place. This is likely due to the leftist Obama adminstration working in tandem with the pro-Islamic supremacist corrupt Congress government that is ruling India. Atlas reader Seema sent this to me. The loss of our most basic freedoms without firing a shot is stunning.
This mirrors Harvard’s firing of Subramanian Swamy. Voices of freedom snuffed out by sharia enforcers.
It is appalling that some professors and students of Communist and Muslim background are protesting against Wharton’s students’ body decision to invite Shri Narendra Modi. Four times elected Chief Minister Narendra Modi is hailed to be the next Prime Minister of India and has been praised as a Powerful Global Leader by the heads of many countries including Japan, China, European Union, etal. He has been invited to deliver a keynote speech at Wharton India Economic Forum about his amazing all round inclusive development work and peaceful minimum government maximum governance, which he has been delivering in his Indian State of Gujarat for the past 12 years.
The bad news is that Wharton School is disregarding the sacred US First Amendment, which guarantees absolute Free Speech to every individual, by getting influenced by few Islamic bigots on campus and is planning to cancel invitation given to Shri Narendra Modi. This has been reported in an article on NDTV, which is an extremely Leftist pro-Muslim leaning Indian news channel, at http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/after-outrage-will-wharton-rethink-inviting-narendra-modi-as-speaker-337471
Please note that, contrary to the lies peddled by Muslims and Leftist lobbyists in the US, a special investigation team appointed by the Supreme Court of India has found no evidence of commission or omission against Shri Narendra Modi, and has exonerated him of all allegations in 2002 Gujarat riots case. 2002 Gujarat riots happened after a Muslim terrorist mob roasted alive 59 Hindu devotees including women and children, who were returning from the Hindu holy city of Ayodhya, by locking them in a train compartment and lighting it on fire using gallons of petrol. It is bizarre that there is even a protest against Shri Modi because there is not even a single police report or complaint filed against this innocent man in any Police Station or Court in India.
If you remember a few years back Columbia University had invited Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and he delivered an anti-semitic and anti-gay speech on its campus. As expected no Muslims or Communists protested at that time. It seems as per these Universities, Free Speech Rights are for genocidal Islamic dictators only (who themselves deny the same Right to others) and not for four times democratically and fairly elected honorable public representative Shri Narendra Modi. Please note that Shri Modi’s government has come back to power again recently with a thumping majority, especially in most Muslim dominated constituencies. Sometime ago Harvard University gave into the pressures of Muslim and Leftist bigots and canceled Shri Subramanian Swamy’s Economics class because he wrote an article about Islamic terror in his personal capacity.
This is a very dangerous and intolerant trend against Free Speech in the US. Please take a moment to write to the Chair and other organizers of Wharton India Economic Forum extending your support for their decision to invite Shri Narendra Modi and ask them not to give into the pressures of Muslim bullies, who want to suppress Free Speech of a innocent Global leader.Organizers’ contact information is available at http://www.whartonindia.com/about.php and is given below:

A religious studies textbook is so littered with errors confusing Judaism and Islam that it has prompted a school to produce its own four-page leaflet of corrections, The Telegraph reported.
The AQA English exam board’s religious studies textbook for the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE), produced by the educational publishers Nelson Thornes, was so ridden with misinformation that staff at the Jewish Free School (JFS), in Kenton, North West London, have been forced to issue a list of corrections.
“It was so bad, the teacher kept telling us, ‘Don’t listen to this, ignore this, half of this is wrong,’” one student said.
The Telegraph report quotes a parent telling the Jewish Chronicle, “The textbook contains countless errors and general, confused assertions about Judaism. The factual errors are laughably bad.”
“A section headed ‘Reform Judaism’ in fact talks about the practice of Orthodox Jews. A picture of a person kneeling in prayer, described as a Jew, is in fact a Muslim, while a picture of Jews ostensibly at a Seder table, is a Shabbat meal,” the parent continued. “Other assertions in the text, including commentaries on women who wear wigs, and why Jews think they do what they do, are misleading and offensive.”
Religious studies GCSE is a compulsory examination at JFS and an estimated 300 students take the exam each year. The parent said that GCSE students at JFS had been instructed to look at the school’s corrections each time they needed to refer to the textbook.
JFS had to reach agreement with the AQA that if students used the correct information about Judaism it would not be marked incorrect by examiners, because it did not coincide with the information in the textbook.
“AQA doesn’t publish text books. We do liaise with publishers to try to ensure references to our syllabus are accurate; however the publisher is responsible for the content of the book and, therefore, any errors,” said a spokesperson for AQA.
“JFS brought the errors to our attention and we raised them with the publisher,” the spokesperson continued. “This book is being reprinted by the publisher and we have asked them to address these concerns.”
The school’s head-teacher, Jonathan Miller, said, “We have worked closely with AQA over the past year and are pleased that they are preparing a new draft of the Judaism text book which will deal with any inaccuracies.”
Steven Mintz, the head of Jewish studies at Manchester’s King David High School, confirmed that he had co-written the textbook, but declined to comment further, according to The Telegraph.
( Elder of Ziyon) There is an interesting detail in this 2003 article from a local Olympia, Washington newspaper that profiles a number of Evergreen College students who traveled to Rafah along with Rachel Corrie:
Rafah is one of the most dangerous places in the Gaza Strip–“a combat zone,” according to Captain Jacob Dallal, the Israeli army spokesperson.
…My Jewish ass has been to Israel several times, but never to Gaza, and I am a bit scared. I have been told not to use any of my Arabic, lest I be suspected of being an Israeli spy. Above all, I have been told not to mention my religion.
[Corrie’s] cohorts at ISM Rafah were an international group, with members from both Europe and the U.S. It was a young group–most people were under 30, and many were closer to 20. And it was a group that held the potential for romance–a Swedish ISMer named Stefan Villkatt would soon become Rachel’s boyfriend.
…In addition to Stefan, there was Chris Allert, 31, also from Olympia, who joined the ISM in April 2002 after hearing about the intense fighting in the West Bank town of Jenin.
…There was Will Hewitt, 25, another Evergreen student who arrived in Israel around the same time as Rachel.
..And then there was Joe Smith, 21–yet another Evergreen student who, with his thick beard and red-checked kaffiyeh, looks like a better-fed, Palestinian-territory version of John Walker Lindh. Joe is from Kansas City, Missouri, and says he (like other Evergreen students) is getting independent study credit for his time in Rafah.
At the time, the US State Department had a travel warning against Americans going to Gaza.
If true, Evergreen College was rewarding students to go to a war zone and put their lives in danger.

Go, Geoducks go,
Through the mud and the sand,
Siphon high, squirt it out,
swivel all about,
let it all hang out.
Go, Geoducks go,
Stretch your necks when the tide
Siphon high, squirt it out,
swivel all about,
let it all hang out.
