The Oxford Union, which touts itself as the "last bastion of free speech," has invited anti-free speech, shariah law loving, murder promoting Islamic jihadist Anjem Choudary as a "star guest." More from the Inquisitor:
A notorious British Muslim hate preacher has been invited as the star guest by the Oxford Union, despite the fact he is openly anti-democracy and is a member of a banned terror group.
The preacher in question, Anjem Choudary, is well-known to the British authorities as a public Muslim leader, born in Britain, who openly espouses ISIS-type ideology, while influencing young British Muslims to engage in Jihad.
To make the Oxford Union, affiliated with the Oxford University, look even worse, the people who invited Choudary to speak, wrote him a letter informing him that it would be a “great privilege” to have him speak there.
Earlier this year when Islamic terrorists slaughtered the editors of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, Choudary justified the killings, said "people know the consequences" for insulting the Prophet Mohammed and argued free speech does not and should not exist.
"Contrary to popular misconception, Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone. Therefore, Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression, as their speech and actions are determined by divine revelation and not based on people's desires," Choudary ironically wrote in a recent USA Today column.
In January, Oxford University Press encouraged authors not to reference pork or bacon in remarks in order to avoid offending Muslims. It was also Oxford that refused to give Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher an honorary degree.
When I was in England earlier this year, I was scheduled to speak at an event at the Oxford Union. When I arrived overseas, I was informed there was a "scheduling conflict" and the event didn't happen.
