Al-Arian's Army

Reader comment on item: Terrorist Profs

Submitted by Bill Hadney (United States), Feb 28, 2003 at 17:37

It seems to me that the refuge offered by USF professors and large numbers of academics in general across the country to Al-Arian and other scholars known for their extremism is due primarily to the fact that they're in perfect sympathy with extremists' overt and covert points of view. I don't believe for a moment they've been duped in any sense by Al-Arian, et al.

Furthermore, they condemn in unison any attempt by the U.S. government to curtail even the most pernicious actions to which these views lead. It's undoubtedly a vast army of support for the likes of Al-Arian. They're quiet now, but they'll be back.
