A student group at Brandeis University hosted a screening of a film produced by a women's rights advocate the university decided not to honor with a degree after concerns were raised about her comments on Islam.
Brandeis University has transformed an accolade into "a moment of shaming" by withdrawing a plan to give an honorary degree to a Muslim women's advocate who has made comments critical of Islam, she said Wednesday.
Brandeis University administrators caved to petitioners and denied a woman an honorary degree, after critics pointed out she made comments that were critical of Islam.
If Newsweek intended its latest cover story to spark conversation, it certainly got what it was looking for.
Dutch writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali is to receive a special award from German publishing house Axel Springer in recognition of her "courage and commitment to freedom as a women's rights campaigner and critic of Islam."
"Wanted Women: Faith, Lies, and the War on Terror: The Lives of Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Aafia Siddiqui" is a good book. Or rather, two. Deborah Scroggins takes Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the critic of Islam and former Dutch parliamentarian, down a few pegs.
The only way to prevent the spread of Islamic ideology is to "compete," says Ayaan Hirsi Ali in her new book "Nomad."
"The message of 'Nomad' is: do not kill, do not destroy, compete," she said at a gathering at the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute on Wednesday.
"It is a memoir," she said. "This is not a work of science. These are my experiences, my observations, and my interpretations of facts and events and the remedies that I have come to."
