 Stanford University to Bar Media & General Public From Attending Three Ex-Terrorists Event

I found this to be very interesting:


[b]Stanford University to Bar Media & General Public From Attending Three Ex-Terrorists Event [/b]

On April 16, former terrorists, Walid Shoebat, Kamal Saleem and Zak Anani are scheduled to speak at Kresge Auditorium on the Stanford University campus, at 7:00 PM PT. They speak from a unique perspective, about their involvement in terrorism.

[b]Stanford has now barred the media, and anyone outside the university community (except for limited V.I.P.'s) from attending, and has stopped the facilitator from filming the event due to "risk assessment."[/b]

Keith Davies, the executive director of the Shoebat Foundation says, "We have encountered similar problems at Princeton and Columbia yet we have no problems when our speakers appear in State schools like UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara, and UCLA - public institutions who implement first amendment rights. [b]It is obvious that these private schools have a concern about having these brave voices being heard.[/b] They should upgrade their practice of access to be comparable to that of State Universities. [b]If we allow our freedoms to be hindered as result of the fear of terrorist threats, America is lost."

Is the issue at Stanford one of an agenda or fear? Either way why are they making a diligent effort to keep this event as low profile as possible? If they did this at a State school they would be infringing on the speakers first amendment rights. [/b]

Keynote speaker Walid Shoebat responds; "I am accused of being a 'Islamaphobe,' yet university administrators are demonstrating this same prejudice, under the guise of 'risk assessment.' [b]It is astounding that this shrouded excuse is being implemented in America, where we are afforded the inalienable rights of freedom of assembly and free speech,"[/b] continues Mr. Shoebat.

The students were given conditional approval to hold this event this past Friday, April 6th after many weeks of delays by Stanford's Student Affairs Department. It is obvious that these administrators wished to restrict the time allowed to students for planning and promotion of the event.

Megan Reiss, one of the college students helping to organize the event complains; "Stanford University Administration has gone out of their way to make the staging of this event as difficult as possible, and it has been a most frustrating experience. [b]It seems there is a double standard in which the outside public and press have not been barred on other events where speakers openly support terror organizations like Hamas, Hezbollah and even Al Qaeda."[/b]

As a result of this development the Walid Shoebat Foundation will hold a press conference at 4.30 pm on April 16th in Palo Alto at a location to be announced on a further Press release on the morning of April 16th at 9 am PST.

Maybe they wanted to avoid a "media circus".

Yes, what happened was that Stanford relented (no doubt due to pressure from the media who caught wind of the story and those who contacted the president of Stanford) and allowed the press and public to come to the event. Here is the report:

Friends

Stanford was the biggest and best event so far in our campaign for truth in the media.

The event got double coverage from Fox 2 news, Double coverage from CBS 5, Double coverage from ABC 7 and single coverage from NBC 11 as well as two hours of coverage from Ron Owens and Armstrong and Getty Talk talk radio shows, both leaders in ratings of their respective time slots.

Coverage was also given by LA Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Associated Press. Many regional newspapers covered the story through the AP coverage.

Based on Regional and National and international press we reached about 10 million people.

We appreciate all who sent letters to the President of Stanford.

Shalom

Director of The Shoebat Foundation

I've heard that one way Muslims take over a country is by instilling fear in the citizens. It seems to be happening here in America.
