Ramadan's defense against his visa revocation is nothing short of pathetic

Reader comment on item: Why Revoke Tariq Ramadan's U.S. Visa?

Submitted by Roosevelt's Disciple (United States), Jun 23, 2007 at 03:19

"How should I reasonably have known of their activities before the U.S. government itself knew?"

1) If 'A' doesn't know something, then 'B' can't know it either.
-Ramadan is a so-called intellectual, yet offers a pathetically feeble defense. So feeble, in fact, that it is a total admission of guilt.

Ramadan's defense is like saying 'How could i know i was commiting crime if the government didn't know about it when i commited it?'. Utterly laughable.

Of course, Ramadan is intimately familiar with the activities of muslim terrorist charities, he's a major figure in a world that holds unanimious ideological support for terrorism (however desperately muslims try and cover it up) and unanimous support for the cause that terrorism promotes, which is islam.

What the US government knows, or doesn't know, has no bearing on Ramadan's ability to know ANYTHING.

2) Ramadan does not refute the claim.
-So interesting that Ramadan does not actually refute the US governments claim. Why does he not take this opportunity to proclaim his innocence? Why not explain why, and how, he did not know he was donating to a muslim terrorist charity?

3) Ramadan does not refute that he donated to the muslim terrorist charity.
-He admits what he did, yet cannot understand why he is being punished. Regarded as an intellectual, yet doesn't know that 'ignorance of the law' is not a defense.

4) Ramadan does not refute that the muslim terrorist charity in question is a muslim terrorist charity.
-Another glaring admission of guilt. Ramadan doesn't acknowledge the charity is terrorist because he seeks to protect them.

5) Perfect opportunity to denounce the terrorist he claims not to support.
-Ramadan does not take the opportunity to denounce terrorist supporting organizations and the particular charity in question.

6) Ramadan does not admit his mistake.
Ramadan does not regret for one second what he did. Ramadan believes in the cause that terrorism promotes, which is islamic domination. Ramadan does not express any regret for his actions.

Ramadan is a crude charlatan. The label 'intellectual' is just a euphemism. His work runs parallel to the terrorists efforts. They are both fighting for the same cause. Ramadan has just chosen a different battleground. Ramadan's no intellectual, he's an enemy of intellectualism, he has one purpose that drives him, which is to fight an ideological war on behalf of a Totalitarian ideology called islam.

Ramadan is so transparent in his efforts to promote any argument or strategy that he thinks will promote islam that it's a wonder anyone gives him the time of day.

Ramadan is just another islamic salesman peddling a Totalitarian ideology called islam.
