Skip to comments.War College cancels speaker on Islam
Posted on 06/13/2019 4:04:05 PM PDT by MarvinStinson
A Muslim activist group has pressured the U.S. Army War College into postponing a speech by Ray Ibrahim, an expert on the historical roots of Islamic terrorism, after the group falsely labeled him as a racist and Islamophobe, he said.
The Philadelphia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group critics say is linked to the Islamist international group Muslim Brotherhood, protested the speech in a letter to the college superintendent, Army Maj. Gen. John S. Kem, and provost James G. Breckenridge. Purporting to represent the Muslim community in Pennsylvania, CAIR stated that it opposed Mr. Ibrahims planned June 19 speech on Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War Between Islam and the West, the title of his latest book.
Mr. Ibrahim said the group set up straw man arguments against him in a smear campaign that involved taking his statements out of context.
The War College initially informed Mr. Ibrahim that the lecture could proceed despite the opposition. But after CAIR organized a publicity campaign alleging Mr. Ibrahim was a white nationalist, the college buckled to the groups pressure.
Robert Martin, a spokesman for the Army War College, said Mr. Ibrahims speech was postponed so the Army education unit can pair Mr. Ibrahims military history insights in close proximity with another historical perspective, at a time when [the Army War College] curriculum has addressed historical analysis of influences on conflict. He did not respond when asked about the pressure from CAIR.
Mr. Ibrahim said the speech was canceled and the colleges claim of a postponement is not correct.
His 352-page book covers nearly 14 centuries in great detail, and CAIR provided no documentation for any research shortcomings in its campaign against him.

Where are the guts of the War College leadership? Apparently still following the bh0 pro-Islamic enemy of the US bravo sierra.
pair Mr. Ibrahims military history insights in close proximity with another historical perspective, at a time when [the Army War College] curriculum has addressed historical analysis of influences on conflict.
= “I’m caving.”
So it’s not the War College now. It’s the pacifier college, the mollycoddlege. There, there, now, suck on your little num-num.
Robert Martin, a spokesman for the Army War College... did not respond when asked about the pressure from CAIR.
Terrible. They should not have allowed CAIR to dictate to them, who they can have as speaker.
Never let the truth get in the way of the agenda.
Muslim Brotherhood is considered a terrorist group, therefore IMO CAIR should also be as it’s associated with, and works in favor of its master organization Muslim Brotherhood. We should not care what CAIR demands. The War College should tell CAIR to buzz off.
I don’t like hearing that AT ALL!
Once you cower to their so called pressure, expect several additional tons of the same pressure from this point on.
Was the decision made by an Obama holdover?
They need to be weeded out quick!
This is probably another product of Obama’s undermining of the military over 8 long years with many of his appointees still in power. Maybe we can now call it the Dhimmi College.
He says it like its a bad thing. A phobia is an irrational fear of something. Knowing what we know, how could there be an irrational fear of that evil nightmare of world domination that our government seems unable to criticize, Islam?
Between CAIR, electing Muslims into Congress, letting all sorts of foreign people into the country across the southern border, we are on our way to a massive battle, folks....
I don’t know if there are enough strong young people to protect our country...Us baby boomers are going away and that will begin the end...
In government, especially the Executive Branch, the more things change, the more they stay the same... Obunghole still rules the pentagon...
And not a single significant thing has been done to chage that! IMHO...
Just what I was thinking.
Too un-PC for the military?
American civilian... "yo no hablo, ehh, "rules of engagement."
Same playbook the Muslim Brotherhood used against Coughlin: CAIR needs to be told to bugger off when ever they come calling.
someone in the military needs to resign retire or be cashiered out, NOW!
Ibrahim would be a very good speaker for them there
‘but apparently there are still some Obama-moles in the military who are still trying to protect our enemies
The conservative reflex in these cases has to be to file a libel suit and a tortious interference suit.
Make these not cost-free endeavors for our enemies, make every one hurt as much as possible.
