Dr. Pipes

I'm reposting what I wrote as I was able to find Tariq Ramadan article in the Op Ed page of the NYT in 2004 and this is what I wrote

"The hypocrite Tariq Ramdan and in an article written by him in the op/ed page of the NYT, and this was back in 2004 and this was when he was denied a visa to come and teach at Notre Dame university, and I'm paraphrasing here what he wrote that he Tariq Ramadan has no link with the ideas of his fascist grand father Hasan el-Bana and he should not be judged by what Hasan el-Bana believed in or preached and for the readers among the bizarre ideas of his grand-father that he wanted to emulate Hitler;'s final solution for the jews but in the case of this fascist the Copts were to be the subject of this final solution.For the readers: Hasan el-Bana was the founder of el-ikhwan el-Muslimeen or the Muslim brotherhood who was a fascist and an admirer of Hitler and who wanted the whole world, either in peace or thru war and violence, become part of the islamic umma and who wanted even his own co-citizens the Copts of Egypt to be killed or be converted to islamNow here is a quote by Tariq Ramadan from le Monde Diplomatique (credit goes to ibn warraq) and in an interview by Alain Gresh he was quoted as saying:"i have studied Hasan el-Bana's ideas with great care and there in nothing in this heritage that i reject" Wow 360 degrees trun from what he wrote in the NYTOh there is more"his (read this as hasan el-bana) relation to god his sprituality his mysticism his personality as well as his critical reflections on law politics society and pluralism testify to me his qualities of heart and mind.....his commitment also is a continuing reason for my respect and admiration."But this begs the question: why would he tell the reporter at le Monde Diplomatique that he does not reject any of the fascist ideas of his fascist grand father then he tells us readers of the NYT the exact opposite?

And here is the article from the NYt

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/09/01/opinion/01ramadan.html?pagewanted=2

And I quote

"my opponents also accuse me of being the grandson of Hassan al-Banna the founder of the radical Muslim Brotherhood movement in Egypt I plead guilty of this charge. My response is am I to be judged by the words and deeds of an ancestor."

This is just amazing as it is the exact opposite of what he told Gresh and what a hypocrite

The answer is because he is a hypocrite
