Tariq Ramadan forced to retract defamatory statements

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

Submitted by Jean-Charles Brisard (Switzerland), Mar 7, 2007 at 15:40

On February 21, 2007, an Islamic website posted an article containing the following comment of Tariq Ramadan regarding my allegations against him: "Brisard knowingly disseminates false allegations against me since years".

I threatened to file a criminal complaint in France against Tariq Ramadan and expose every single document proving my allegations. So, on March 5, 2007 he retracted his defamatory statement.

During a face to face debate I had with him on Swiss TV in December 2003, I've already provided evidence to support my claims. But Ramadan, as usual, denied everything.

Since then, Tariq Ramadan was denied entry in the United States on grounds of "providing material support to a terrorist organization" through donations to organizations supporting Hamas.

As I've reported earlier on my blog and the Terror Finance blog, lots of evidence, ranging from criminal prosecutions to intelligence and police reports, support the fact that Tariq Ramadan has been in contact with several well-known terrorists in Europe during the last 20 years.
