    Self-avowed liberal and Islamic reform activist Asra Nomani defended her support for President Donald Trump and her position on Islamic extremism in Copley Formal Lounge on Wednesday. The event, co-sponsored by the Georgetown Bipartisan Coalition and the Georgetown Review, came under scrutiny after students on social media called Nomani an Islamophobe. The Georgetown Bipartisan Coalition and The Georgetown Review both defended their decision to invite Nomani ahead of the event. The Georgetown Review said in an editorial posted Tuesday evening that Nomani has the right to voice her opinions. “While the arguments associating Ms. Nomani with the ‘soft Islamophobia of...

    Nonie Darwish grew up as a Muslim girl in Egypt and wants to tell American university students what Sharia law is really like. A lot of them don’t care to hear about it and don’t even think Darwish should have the freedom of speech to tell her side of the story — including some of the Georgetown University College Republicans (GUCR) who invited her to speak at their academy Tuesday night. According to Campus Reform, her presentation at Georgetown University this week prompted a torrent of angry student voices who called Darwish’s condemnation of Sharia law “hate speech.” The lecture...

    It seems many in progressive media are too PC to call out a Musim professor even when he's advocating rape and slavery? Two things: This comes from the account of Umar Lee, a Muslim student who was offended by how far Jonathan Brown went in defending slavery and rape. In the era of the campus trigger warning, rape culture and renaming buildings named after slave owners, Brown offered a spirited defense of slavery and rape.

    Slavery and rape aren’t wrong when Muslims do it. "I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody." "A male owner of a female slave has the right to sexual access to her.” These views don’t come from an ISIS underground bunker, but out of the brilliantly lit halls of Georgetown University where rape and slavery are defended by an Islamic studies professor. ... defending actual slavery and rape is still okay at Georgetown. So long as it’s committed by Muslims under the license of the Koran. "I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody,” Jonathan Brown explained ......

The effect we will be seeing when the next generation takes over is what this generation has taught them. The...

    A professor at Georgetown University is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings. Islamic Studies professor Jonathan Brown recently lectured at the International Institute of Islamic Thought, where he shared his alarming beliefs with students in attendance in his lecture, “Islam and the Problem of Slavery.” Freelance writer Umar Lee expressed his shock over the 90-minute lecture, which included explicit endorsements of rape and slavery.

But his final work is still underway: a petition to the Vatican, seeking the enforcement of canon law to reform Georgetown University’s Catholic identity, is still in front of the Church’s highest court. Although Bill Blatty is appreciated widely for his writing talent, great humor and one of the scariest movies ever made, we should also remember him as a faithful Catholic and a passionate advocate for Catholic education. In many of his works, Blatty...

    A Georgetown University associate professor had a month-long meltdown after a Muslim woman explained why she voted for President-elect Donald Trump. Asra Q. Nomani, a former Georgetown journalism professor and Wall Street Journal reporter, wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post Nov. 10 explaining why she, as a Muslim woman and “long-time liberal,” voted for Trump. “I support the Democratic Party’s position on abortion, same-sex marriage and climate change,” Nomani wrote. “But I am a single mother who can’t afford health insurance under Obamacare.” C. Christine Fair, a previously “friendly colleague,” went on a 31-day screed against Nomani spanning across...

The diamond-shaped structures are installed in three locations, where they serve “as gateways into Georgetown.” The installations are “dedicated to former Senator Hillary Clinton, who is the beacon of dignity and guiding light, as a thank you for her strength as we move forward,” according to a placard next to the art.

    Georgetown will offer an admissions edge to descendants of slaves as part of a comprehensive atonement for the university's historical ties to slavery, its president announced Thursday. Those ties go back nearly two centuries, when the Washington, D.C., school sold 272 slaves and used the proceeds to pay off debt. Georgetown President John J. DeGioia will offer a public apology Thursday afternoon for the 1838 sale and will also outline what the university plans to do to acknowledge racism in its past. In addition to offering descendants the same preferential status in admissions that Georgetown currently offers children of alumni,...

Barack Obama isn't the first president to make foreign-policy decisions on the basis of domestic political calculations. He does, however, win the distinction of being the first president to utterly disregard—to treat with contempt—the institutions and procedures that were designed to help the commander in chief insulate the serious...

At California Polytechnic University, students recently held a “s*it-in” to demand that administrators add more “all gender” restrooms to the 17 existing locations on Cal Poly’s campus. Despite an impending budget crisis, the University of North Texas allocated $100,000 last fall to renovate old restrooms and make them gender-neutral. “This is a situation where I thought we could be proactive and make this change… You could say it’s an all-human restroom,” Shane McCreery, Illinois State University’s Ethics...

Schools from larger conferences like the SEC and Big East didn’t see the need to keep allowing the mid-major teams into the Big Dance. They always lost, so what was the point? When Alonzo Mourning’s no. 1 seed Georgetown Hoyas entered the tournament, they had their eyes set on the Final Four and a national title. Dealing with the likes of Ivy League champion and no. 16 seed Princeton was more of an afterthought. So when these two teams...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at the Georgetown Institute For Women, Peace and Security and it seems like hardly anyone showed up. Clinton's remarks on "Smart Power: Security Through Inclusive Leadership" were delivered at Georgetown's Gaston Hall, an auditorium that seats more than 700 people. However, based on tweets from those who attended the event, many seats were empty. Update (1:40 p.m.): Georgetown spokesperson Stacy Kerr sent a statement to Business Insider noting there has been large turnout for past events at the school with Clinton. She also suggested the fact it is the last week before final...

    (with video) Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson had a heated argument on Ferugson on Sunday's broadcast of NBC's Meet the Press. Giuliani confronted Dyson over the fact that blacks don't have mass protests when blacks kill other blacks. "But the fact is, I find it very disappointing that you're not discussing the fact that 93% of blacks in America are killed by other blacks," Giuliani said to Dyson.

    Hopelessly confused about how the Catholic Church and leaders at Jesuit universities view birth control, and blissfully unaware that a 36-count pack of Trojan-enz lubricated, latex condoms can be purchased at Amazon.com for just $13.97, student activists at Fordham University are demanding that the school provide free condoms on campus.The activists at Fordham, which bills itself as “the Jesuit University of New York,” belong to a group called S.A.G.E.S. (The acronym stands for Sex and Gender Equity and Safety.) On its Twitter page, SAGES has an image of an erect condom.In a Change.org petition, the group proclaims that a lack...

    DESCRIPTION: Georgetown University is the beneficiary of funds from Qatar, the same country which funds Hamas and other terrorist organizations. Let us imagine a hypothetical scenario, shall we? You have a friend. In spite of a few personal shortcomings and a penchant for choosing some unsavory friends in his other social groups, from what you can tell, he shares similar ideals, political views and objectives. One day, your friend approaches you with an idea. “Why don’t I build and pay for a ‘mother-in-law’ suite in my backyard which you can live in, and you’ll only have to pay for the...

    As people have become increasingly aware, Qatar has been and continues to be a major funding source for the Hamas, Islamic State, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, and Ansar al-Sharia. What many people may NOT be aware of is that a number of American universities have satellite campuses in Qatar. In part, they are: Northwestern, Texas A&M, Weill-Cornell Medical School, Carnegie-Mellon, Harvard Law, Virginia Commonwealth and Georgetown. But here’s the kicker… Qatar has paid ALL of the costs associated with developing these satellite campuses in Doha – 100% of them. Considering Qatar’s rising stature and infamy in the specialized, and profitable,...

    Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service operates a satellite campus in an oppressive Middle Eastern dictatorship. Funded by oil money and corrupt sheikhs, Georgetown University effectively condones and promotes the human rights abuses of our host country. Why does no one talk about this? Georgetown is not alone; we’re one of a growing number of American universities to give a free pass to our Middle Eastern donors. NYU Abu Dhabi, anyone? Cornell in Doha? It’s no mystery — when wealthy princes offer you hundreds of millions of dollars to build a campus in their country, it’s hard to say no....

    In a long-winded speech on Wednesday at Georgetown University, former president Bill Clinton criticized the “political press” who, he says, are so often blinded by a “storyline” that they ignore reality, especially when it comes to Obamacare. “One of the problems is, if a policymaker is a political leader and is covered primarily by the political press, there is a craving that borders on addictive to have a storyline,” said Clinton. “And then, once people settle on the storyline, there is a craving that borders on blindness, to shoehorn every fact, every development, everything that happens into the storyline, even...

    A white powder found Tuesday in a Georgetown University dorm room tested positive for ricin, but the university said Wednesday that there was no immediate threat to the community. Law enforcement officials said they believed there was no connection to terrorism. In an email to the campus community Wednesday afternoon, school officials said a substance that was removed from a room in the McCarthy Hall dormitory tested positive for ricin. The white powder can cause respiratory distress, respiratory failure, and multi-organ dysfunction, according to the Centers for Disease Control. SNIP FBI spokeswoman Jacqueline Maguire said no arrests had been made...

    I see the rim. I see the rim. A quarter century later, Bob Scrabis can still see the rim. Seven seconds remained in that first round 1989 NCAA tournament game between Princeton and Georgetown when Scrabis, the Tigers’ captain and lone senior, raised up to shoot the basketball. Before the game Scrabis’ own coach, the chronic pessimist Pete Carril, had set the betting line. “I think we’re a billion-to-one to win the whole tournament,” he said. “To beat Georgetown, we’re only 450 million to one.”
