Between Tarek Ramadan and the "Teffilin" is a disgraceful story to tell.

Reader comment on item: Tariq Ramadan Gives Up – Then Tries Again

Submitted by Norma Fares (United States), Jan 21, 2010 at 18:44

The following "breaking news" i.e. "Passenger's prayer ritual prompts flight diversion" for "SECURITY MATTERS" would be the best response to the topic of this article: http://edition.cnn.com/2010/TRAVEL/01/21/plane.diverted/ - issue January 21 2010.

A state that cannot identify a threat like Tarek Ramadan --"he would be permitted entry to the United States to take up the university position"-- from "the man, who was described as wearing something on his head that included leather pieces --The description appeared to match that of tefillin, or phylacteries, which Orthodox Jewish men wear during prayer."-- is a state that needs to learn.

A state that does not understand what a national threat is i.e. between an Islamist voice inside universities and this "something" that is a teffilin is a state that must learn.

Thank you Dr. Pipes for giving us the chance to share and voice our unheard voice in the most ignorant part of the Middle East, i.e. Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the US stay .
