Tariq Ramadan is lying all the time!

Reader comment on item: Is Tariq Ramadan Lying [about Magdi Allam]?

It starts with him being no professor at a university but "professeur", i.e. college teacher at Collège de Saussure à Genève.

It continues with him pretending being professor at Fribourg University, but he taught only two academic hours (= 1 1/2 hours), every other week. The courses ended before he applied for a visa for the USA. The university already cancelled this "da`wa course" in 2004.

It was listed as: Let-7 Ramadan Tariq Islam III: Introduction III; mercredi, 15-17 h. (tous les 15 jours) (164). On this, see http://www.unifr.ch/imr/E40page_anglais24.htm

In the online magazine Egypt Today (at http://www.egypttoday.com/article.aspx?ArticleID=2481), he pretended to have two diplomas and two doctorates:

We were political exiles, which made the situation more difficult. At the University of Geneva, I studied philosophy and French literature and, after completing two MA degrees, continued with a PhD on the concept of suffering in Nietzsche's philosophy and later another PhD in Islamic Studies about contemporary Islamic reformist thinkers from Jamal El-Din El-Afghani to Hassan Al-Banna.

For those who read German, you will find more information, with lot of links, about this person, the great pretender, at "Dr. Tariq Ramadan wird nun allmaehlich boese!" ...
