Reader comment on item: My Disrupted Talk at the University of California-Irvine
in response to reader comment: PIPES DISRUPTED University of Michigan-Brigitte Gabriel

Submitted by John (United States), Mar 20, 2007 at 23:09

"The intimidation takes a toll on you," Ms. Gabriel said in an e-mail message to friends after the Memphis speech. "I was dreading this all day, ever since my hosts told me they had been receiving hostile e-mail about my lecture. It was weighing so heavily on my heart. My stomach was in knots. I got a migraine headache. I knew I was going into battle, and there was no way out of it. I was nervous and stressed. Each time this happens, I hate it and it makes me feel that I don't want to do it anymore. But I will do it. I will never stop. If we stop, the Islamists will have won. We cannot allow that to happen." -Brigitte Gabriel
