Bin Laden threatens America, NYC welcomes Tariq Ramadan

Thus Phyllis Chesler’s response to the news that Tariq Ramadan will be speaking at New York’s Cooper Union on 8 April, following the lifting of the ban on his entering the US. Chesler herself probably won’t be turning up:

“I do not know if I’ll have the stomach to attend. Ramadan is not my problem, I know him for the snake he is. Rather, it would be the sight of so many Americans who’ve glamorized him, who are fooled by him, who have come to worship Death at his feet.”
