Back to the Cartoons

Evidently there is a Michigan State Professor that sent a letter to the protesting Muslim Association at MSU to protest their protest of the Danish Cartoons.

Maybe I'm the only one who didn't hear about it and maybe Janice has already covered it, but here is the letter he wrote:

Dear Moslem Association:

As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest. I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey!), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called "whores" in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France.

This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many, many of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceeded with your infantile "protests." If you do not like the values of the West — see the 1st Amendment — you are free to leave.

I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option. Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.

I. S. Wichman, Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Wichman told the Detroit News the letter had been intended for one particular person, not the entirety of the Muslim Students' Association; he had believed the e-mail address he used was that one student's inbox. However, students who lead the association said the e-mail address was part of the group's official Web site.

The student's association president went straight to the university authorities the day after receiving the e-mail, and instead of leaving it as an internal university issue, brought senior representatives of CAIR to meetings with university administrators. The MSA president and Dawud Walid, who is executive director of CAIR's Michigan branch, claimed they made the e-mail public because the university had not given them the satisfaction (i.e. draconian punishments) they required.
Dawud Walid said: "They should send out an official statement to the public distancing themselves from these types of statements and confirm for us that they did, in fact, do a formal investigation and that there is going to be some kind of disciplinary action against Dr. Wichman."

Once again, the Muslims of CAIR need to realize that they moved beyond the middle ages when they came to America. Islam is just one of many religions practiced in America, and Professor Wichman is entitled to speak his mind. And as the good professor said, if they don't like it they are free to leave.

I'll help them pack.

I'll help them find good airline reservations.

"Aisle or window?"

One more thing...

I'll bet there are a lot of Americans who would love to help these Muslims out. Of the country.

Sorry Chris I didn't post on this CAIR action alert.

This evening I went through my CAIR emails and from the start of this thing, CAIR was not satisfied with anything the univesity did or didn't do to this professor. Every email was calling for more discipline and MSU didn't cave and Wichman didn't apologize.

CAIR wrote op-ed's in the Detroit Free Press twice on the issue and even called on muslims in Michigan to contact their state reps to order MSU to fire him.

CAIR tried very hard to make this mole hill into a mountain, to no avail.

Yes, it's heart warming to know that Americans are ready and willing to help the CAIR people OUT.


Somehow I knew you would know more about this than I did.

You're the best, and thanks.
