The numbers are frightfully similar in the US. The toxic islamization of university and college campuses is virulent.
Students are lauded and rewarded for inviting the most radical haters to speak on college campuses while on the exceedingly rare occasion a brave student group dare invites a conservative or pro-Israel speaker, all hell breaks loose, very much like pre-war Germany.
Students invite radical Islamic speakers to over 110 events in a year despite the Government’s terror crackdown
By Eleanor Harding Education Correspondent For The Daily Mail, September 29, 2017:
- Speakers with a history of extreme comments invited to 112 events in 2016
- Universities include elite institutions Oxford, Warwick and Manchester
- Invitees included Moazzam Begg, director of Cage, an organisation which once described Jihadi John as a ‘beautiful young man’
Radical Islamic speakers have been invited to more than 100 events hosted by student societies over the past year despite a government crackdown.
A new report reveals the speakers were invited to speak to undergraduates at elite institutions including Oxford, Warwick and Manchester.
In total, guests with a record of preaching extreme views were given access to students on 112 occasions – and in most cases no effort was made to provide any balance to their statements.
In one case, a preacher who had previously advocated wife-beating and claimed that ‘Islam is not compatible with democracy’ was allowed to speak to students of the School of Oriental and African Studies in London.
In another, Oxford University students heard a speech by the director of Cage, the group which once described IS killer Jihadi John as a ‘beautiful young man’.
The data, gathered by the Henry Jackson Society think tank, follows a string of terror attacks this year in Manchester, London Bridge and Parsons Green.
Universities are required to help prevent extremism and report any concerns they have to counter-terrorism officials under the government’s Prevent Duty.
Yesterday, critics said the report showed not enough is being done by university leaders to stop vulnerable students being brainwashed by radicals.
Robert Halfon, the Conservative chairman of the education select committee, said: ‘It is unacceptable that the universities are not doing enough to crack down on extremism.
‘They should do everything possible not to be unwitting accessories to encouraging terrorism.
