"They simply wanted me to be silenced."
due to pressure from extremist Muslim groups, students, and faculty, Ali was disinvited from speaking at Brandeis University because she was going to tell the truth. Truthfulness about Islamic abuse of women, especially when presented by a woman with firsthand knowledge, is now labeled "Islamophobic." So much for independent thought and diversity of opinion in the hallowed halls of academia. How pathetic that the motto of Brandeis is "Truth even unto its innermost parts."
The Wall Street Journal was good enough to publish Ali's prepared remarks, which due to willfully blind intolerance shall remain unspoken. I've linked the speech here, with hopes that her words will at least be read.
Reading what Ali has to say will go a long way towards teaching us what a real "war on women" looks like.
