The works of Tariq Ramadan

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

Submitted by Shammai Fishman (Israel), Aug 27, 2004 at 04:08

Dear Dr. Pipes,

My comment on this article is that you only come
up with circumstantial evidence and do not refer to
Tariq's ideology and works.
Some provocative ideas of Tariq Ramadan:
*He uses the term Dar al-Shahada when referring to
non-Islamic lands. One of the meanings of Shahada is
martyrdom.
*He published an article inciting against "Jewish
intellectuals" in France last November.
*He views Muslims in Europe not as a minority but as
an "ethical majority".
*He encourages people to read the works of his grandfather Hasan al-Bana who called for jihad and sets the foundations for Islamic ideoligist though until today.
Please read my article about his ideology:

Please see my response at http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/16561. I specifically was not dealing with Ramadan's ideas but with his actions, as best I can discern them via the media.
