Hooray for A Michigan State Professor!

The story begins at Michigan State University

 with a mechanical engineering professor named

 Indrek Wichman.

 Wichman sent an e-mail to the Muslim Student's Association.

The e-mail was in response to the students' protest

of the Danish cartoons

that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist.


 The group had complained the cartoons were

"hate speech."


 Enter Professor Wichman.

In his e-mail, he said the following:

 Dear Moslem Association,

 As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU

 I intend to protest your protest.

I am offended not by cartoons,

but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians,

 cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders,

 murders of Catholic priests

(the latest in Turkey ),

burnings of Christian churches,

the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt ,

the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims,

the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women

 (called "whores" in your culture),

the murder of film directors in Holland,

and the rioting and looting in Paris France.


This is what offends me,

a soft-spoken person and academic,

and many, many of my colleagues.

I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal,

and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems

 to be very aware of this as you proceed

with your infantile "protests."


If you do not like the values of the West

- see the 1st Amendment -

 you are free to leave.


I hope for God's sake

that most of you choose that option

 Please return to your ancestral homelands

and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.


I. S. Wichman

 Professor of Mechanical Engineering


As you can imagine,

 the Muslim group at the university didn't like this too well.

 They're demanding that Wichman be reprimanded

and the university impose mandatory diversity training for faculty

and mandate a seminar on hate and discrimination for all freshmen.


Now the local chapter of CAIR has jumped into the fray.

CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations,

apparently doesn't believe that the good professor

had the right to express his opinion.

(unlike the broad latitude given to the Islamists to spew their hate-filled raves) 


For its part,

 the university is standing its ground

in support of Professor Wichman,

saying the e-mail was private,

and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks.
