Ban Ramadan but allow the Saudis free reign?

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

Submitted by Nelson Horton (United States), Aug 29, 2004 at 01:16

.
In reference to Prof. Tariq Ramadan. The government has banned a professor chosen by Notre Dame University for employment. I think that the decision should be Notre Dame's...not the government's.

American Prospect has labeled Prof. Ramadan a "gentile jihadist"....now my main question is, Why is a college professor being banned from the USA while Saudi Arabia is free to build Mosques and Schools in the USA? Saudi Arabia is giving us the Wahabbi idea of Islam thru these schools and mosques, as part of an attempt to take over our nation from within by making us into an Islamic Nation.

Prof. Ramadan is a "gentle kitten" compared to Saudi Arabia's efforts here, but the U.S. government has placed no ban on Saudi activities within the USA.

In my opinion, Saudi Arabia is the greater risk to our freedom.

The government should give Notre Dame University such information as they have about Prof. Ramadan, but the decision should be Notre Dame's. Prof Ramadan is at least interested in talking with us...as few Muslims are these days.

Thank you. Keep up your good work.
