NO SPEECH AT GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY

From Craig Biddle, The Objective Standard: GMU Goes Dhimmi: John Lewis Talk Cancelled. Has dhimmitude become the norm at George Mason University? Is this a new way of censorship? [Editor's note to John Lewis: Keep up the good fight!]

UPDATE 03/18/07:

In the news: Professor's invitation at GMU pulled amid Muslim complaints - Akron Beacon Journal / AP.

An Ohio professor who has called for war with Iran had his invitation to speak at George Mason University rescinded after Muslim students complained that he advocates violence.

On Friday, however, it appeared that the speech might be rescheduled.

John Lewis, who teaches history at Ashland University, was invited to speak in conjunction with an article he wrote in December titled "No Substitute for Victory: The Defeat of Islamic Totalitarianism." (Ohio.com, 03/09/07.)



Michael Caution of Abandon Caution writes that John Lewis will deliver his speech on April 24, at 7:30 PM. [Via Gus Van Horn.] [Editor's note: Please inform me if you are planning to attend the lecture.]
