Thinking about this story this morning, I sent Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper this email. I will let you know if I hear from him!
Dear Mr. Hooper
I read with great interest CAIR-California’s call to reject the UC anti-Semitism resolution on the grounds that it would interfere with “robust political debate.” I must say that I was a bit surprised: after having worked so energetically over the last few years to get me and other critics of jihad and Islamic supremacism banned from speaking on campuses and in numerous other venues (such as the American Library Association conference, from which CAIR’s Ahmed Rehab was pivotal in getting me canceled), it was extremely heartening to see CAIR finally come around to endorsing the principles of free speech and “robust political debate.”
In accord with your new spirit of openness to genuine discussion and dialogue, I’d like to invite you to appear on my monthly show on the Aramaic Broadcasting Network, www.abnsat.com. This network goes via satellite all over the Arabic-speaking world, and so I am certain that a discussion on issues of jihad terror, “Islamophobia” and the like would be of great interest to ABN’s viewing audience.
My show runs for an hour and a half and is broadcast once a month, but the specific date is flexible — please let me know what would be a good date for you to appear on the show in September, and I will make every effort to accommodate you. You could appear from the comfort of your office in Washington, or any other location you chose, via Skype.
Congratulations and thanks again for CAIR’s strong endorsement of “robust political debate.” I look forward into engaging in just that with you, in an atmosphere of mutual respect and tolerance.
