The absence of proofs

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

Submitted by Darraz ElKhadie (Germany), Dec 16, 2004 at 11:31

Studying with a terrorist or drinking tea with him does not necessarilly mean agreeing with his ideas and his plans for terrorist attacks.

The USA which is respected all over the world for its respect of freedom of opinion is now denying the entry of an islamic scholar who just intended to build some bridges of dialogue between the moslems and the Americans.

The DHS had no proof. They based their decision on the fact that bin Laden might have studied together with Rsmadan 's father! This kind of proof might be taken into considerations by the Saudis where the law is a matter of mood but not by AMERICA where law is still respected

GOD BLESS AMERICA
