Yet, at Florida’s Barry University, it’s the acclaimed honor student who participated in the sting operation – identified as “Laura” – who’s been suspended within weeks of her expected graduation.

Now is the time for alumni, parents of students and other backers of Barry University to repudiate those who think supporting terrifying jihad is an appropriate activity at their institution. And a courageous student who challenged such administrators should be applauded, not punished.
