The London School of Appeasement. The Banning of Douglas Murray
I had the fortune to see the author, Phyllis Chesler speak at an event I went to. She has been on the forefront for Women issues in the U.S. for many years.
The London School of Economics has just banned the young and distinguished Douglas Murray, the author and Director of the Centre for Social Cohesion, from their campus. Murray was to have chaired a debate about Islam titled “Islam or Liberalism. Which is the Way Forward?” The reason given was “security concerns.”
According to Damian Thompson, of the London Telegraph, the School had no such fears when known “members of Al-Mujaharoun, a pro-terror Islamist organisation,” spoke there. Thompson was in attendance. “The presence of the group was announced in advance, but that was OK with the School. Presumably that was because it was also OK with the Islamic campus ideologues in front of whom it cowers.’ ”
This is maddening and tragic. According to Peter Whittle, Director of the New Culture Forum (who, to his credit, has just invited Murray to chair their first program of 2009):
“The ban on Mr Murray is outrageous. Even more worrying however is the total silence on such occasions from our elected ‘representatives’ in public life. Are they cowards? Are they in denial? Certainly, Douglas Murray is neither. ”
