Red Notes From a Blue State - Yale University: Weighed and Found Wanting
In 2008 Basak Otus, a writer for Yale Daily News, the
leading news source for Yale University wrote an article that
majors getting tired of Shakespeare and Wordsworth will soon be able to turn to
Yale’s libraries for a poet of a different kind altogether: Osama bin Laden”.
The backlash to this article should have been taken as a
prophetic warning of what was to come, akin to the hand writing on the wall of
King Belshazzar of Babylon in the book of Daniel. In
that story the fingers of a man’s hand appeared and wrote on
the wall an ominous warning that the prophet Daniel interpreted as
1) God has
numbered your kingdom, and finished it.
2) You have been
weighed in the balances, and found wanting
3) Your kingdom
has been divided, and given away.
Basak Otis’ article in 2008 pointed out
that Yale no longer had America’s best interests at heart, but had begun a love
affair with one of the most notorious men of the modern era: Osama bin Laden.
Perhaps the article would have faded into the background and remained forgotten
if Yale woke up when it was attacked that June by a jihadist
firebombing, which was intended to destroy their power
plant. But Yale slumberously ignored the wake-up call!
Yale University reverted to its love affair
with Osama bin Laden and published a sharia
compliant version of a book about Muhammad cartoons, taking
care to censor illustrations that, in Paris, had inspired the murder of a dozen
members of “Charlie Hebdo,” a publication that had printed cartoons of Mohammad. This occurred in September 2009, less than three months after the
It was Yale University’s overt attempt to
display “dhimmitude”—submission to Muslims -- rather than display their
heritage as great defenders of the First Amendment. Yale had the opportunity to
take a strong stand for America and her beliefs in liberty for all her
citizens! It was a chance to be seen as the University that defends the First
Amendment. Yale, however chose to become an example of “being weighed and found
wanting” in their defense of the US Constitution.
In 2014 Yale Law School hosted Rachid Al-Ghannouchi to speak to its students and the community as well. Rachid is a member of the Ennahda
Party in Tunisia. Ennahda is the Muslim Brotherhood
entity in Tunisia. Osama bin Laden was and is still counted as a member of the
Muslim Brotherhood. Yale University has people that vet public speakers. How is
it possible they did not know that Al-Ghannouchi was a staunch defender of
a US declared terrorist entity?
