Ayaan Hirsi Ali v. Brandeis: HAMAS Forces Win Out Over Truth to Power

By Debbie Schlussel

Can’t let the week end without mentioning the disgusting decision by Brandeis University to withdraw its invitation to and planned honor to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a true woman of courage and valor. Once again, the forces of HAMAS–yes, Islamic terrorism–win out over all truth–and all decency–in America, this time at Brandeis. And we all lose.


It’s disgraceful and yet another disgusting omen of what’s to come in America: intolerance of all truth and fact regarding Islam. If you dare speak of it, you are banned, disinvited, dissed, and dishonored.

It’s ironic that Brandeis, which doesn’t want the truth to be spoken, has as its motto: Truth Even Unto Its Innermost Parts. And the word “Emet”–Hebrew for “truth”–is on its logo. Wow, talk about fraudulent advertising. There is no Emet at Brandeis. Not even close. Not anymore.

Ali is the real deal, unlike the many frauds, con artists, and charlatans who claimed to have suffered at the hands of Islam in order to make huge sums of money (such as Hanan Qahwagi Tudor a/k/a “Brigitte Gabriel” and Nonie Darwish, both of them are complete fakes, whose life stories are completely fabricated to exact oodles of money from naive believer targets).

Ali, a brave and brilliant woman, was a Muslim who suffered–still suffers–greatly at the hands of this oppressive religion in Somalia and Saudi Arabia. First, her parents subject her to female genital mutilation a/k/a “female circumcision.” Then, they planned to marry her off in an arranged marriage. But she ran away from all of that and became a Dutch legislator and a warrior for the truth. Then, her friend, Theo Van Gogh, was murdered because the two of them made a short film depicting the subjugation of women by Islam.

And then and ever after, Ali was required to have an expensive, extensive security detail of armed guards and alarms because of very valid death threats to her life to date from Muslims.

But none of that matters. None of it can be told or spoken of. Because to tell the truth is to offend Muslims. And, even worse, it is to “offend” Islam’s willing cohorts and enablers, like the many liberals and liberal Jews at the helm and within the core community at Brandeis University.

It’s ironic that Brandeis was founded by Jews because Jews were discriminated against in college admissions, particularly at the nearby Ivies, which had quotas for them. But, now, this self-described “non-sectarian, Jewish-sponsored” university has lost its soul (actually it lost its soul long ago, when it welcome Commie radical Angela Davis through its doors on a free ride scholarship) and bowed to the forces of HAMAS at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which even the Obama Justice Department confirms is an unindicted co-conspirator in HAMAS terrorism financing. CAIR won’t condemn HAMAS and Hezbollah terrorism–you know the kind that murdered hundreds of Americans, Christians, and Jews. But CAIR is offended! And so Brandeis bows to this terrorism financing outfit, which financed murders. Yup, that’s the ticket. The school set up to shelter Jews from anti-Semitism now answers to the leading forces of Jew-hatred today: Muslims, and the most radical strain of Muslims to boot.

And so an innocent, brave victim of the Jew-haters, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, is now a victim of those Jew-haters, those Christian-haters, those America-haters yet again. She couldn’t escape it by leaving Africa and the Middle East or by leaving the Netherlands and Europe. It’s here. And it’s running the show.

A couple of weeks ago HAMAS financier CAIR got ABC Family to buckle, as I predicted it would, and nix a planned pilot on what happens when Muslims kidnap children to Saudi Arabia. Because that never happens in the world according to CAIR and we dare not speak about it.

Now, Ali’s life of oppression at the hands of Muslims must not dare be spoken of.

Who cares about the truth when CAIR and its whining minority of Muslims are offended? We must comply and shut up and become intolerant of anyone who dares speak the truth.

Justice Louis Brandeis–after whom the university is named–is turning over in his grave. And so are all the Jews, including Albert Einstein, who founded the place to protect those who are victims of Jew-hatred. Brandeis needs to remove the “Truth Even Unto Its Innermost Parts” BS from its logo immediately. Or someone should sue it for fraud.

Now the the truth-haters and Jew-haters are running the show. And it will only get worse and the Muslim population continues to expand.

HAMAS’ beachhead in America is no longer just a beachhead. It’s taking over fast because we did nothing to stop it.

As I’ve always said, 9/11 was the best thing to ever happen to them. Except that it happened to us, and they did it.

How soon we forget.

This is of the same order as the persecution of Brendan Eich for having traditional beliefs about marriage.

We shun good and decent people becaue there are those in our society who hate them! And Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s crime? Leaving Islam and denouncing it and defending the human rights of the truly oppressed. Like the right of her late and courageous friend, Theo Van Gogh to tell us about Islam.

I used to think Brandeis would honor the values inscribed in its window. Ali was right to be offended by its shameful and craven treatment of her. She showed us in her reaction she has the courage and the integrity missing in those afraid to stand up to the Islam that is the greatest threat to the freedom and security of the Jewish people on earth today.

Brandeis has not undermined her standing by withdrawing the conferral of an honorary degree upon her and its refusal to allow its students to hear what she had to say. It undermined itself – and no Debbie – it has not made a mockery of the truth. Regardless of whether or not its heard within its walls, the truth will triumph.

Ali and Eich and many others like her – they cannot allow be silenced. Saying and doing what is right is an everlasting reward. This is a blessing given to us not by men but from G-d Himself, who is our judge! We don’t need to fear the hypcrites, cowards and evil men who surround us and would take our life; our witnesses to our character in this life are the truth and our faith.

NormanF on April 11, 2014 at 7:59 pm

    You’re comparing Ali and Eich?!

    skzion on April 13, 2014 at 9:44 am

And then, there is the renowned legal scholar Anita Hill gracing the halls of Brandeis.

But the worst double talk was re Tony Kushner. Giving this anti-Israel hack an honorary degree. But, as the scholarly President of Brandeis explained, they were honoring his artistic skills, not his politics. Just like Louis Farrakhan can be honored for his work in “promoting black families”, not his anti-semitism. As if you can compartmentalize parts of a person and ignore the objectionable parts.

But the biggest irony is that a university established to combat prejudice against Jews, is, quite likely exercising prejudice against Jews in admissions and employment right now. There is a large Muslim component among Brandeis’ students. It would be instructive to compare their SAT scores to those of Jewish students who were rejected, or not offered the financial aid the Muslims got.

So the wheel has turned 180 degrees.

They might have thought they could get away with the snub against Ali because they did withdraw, as a university from the American Studies Association after the ASA passed its pro-BDS resolution. They probably thought that gave them a little spare capital to expend against Ali.

Little Al on April 11, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    Little Al, Brandeis’s history is even more sordid than I thought.

    skzion on April 13, 2014 at 9:47 am

You know what, CAIR didn’t do this all by themselves, it was originally a “Muslim” student who bitched and snitched to the School’s Dean that Ms. Hirsi-Ali was going to be invited to speak at that institution, the same Muslim student from there sent a propaganda petition against AHA to CAIR and from there, CAIR and Brandeis University did some kick-back to not have AHA speak at their college.

Also, let’s not forget that AHA is part-in-parcel of some conservative organizations that I believe have attacked and ridiculed DS is the past, she nevertheless is STILL legit as Debbie clarified at the start of the article.

PS, Debbie, I didn’t know that Nonie Darwish was in it for the profit and a con-artist like “Brigitte Gabriel”!

Sean R. on April 11, 2014 at 10:49 pm

Brandeis has lost its way.While always promoting progressive thinking and social policy for the general good it has turned its back on the very people that forced its creation. Today and for many years the school’s students almost revel in their pro-diversity ( ie. pro muslim, pro Palestine) anti Israel personalty.They have certainly come full circle backstabbing the founding fathers because, today, they feel more safe in their socioeconomic position. That was not true in the 50s. Today , unfortunately Brandeis has to assume responsibility for creating the likes of Davis, Susan Saxe ( a nice Jewish girl) convicted of murdering a Waltham policeman along with 2 other female Brandeisians( they were all on the FBI Most Wanted list . Oh, and dont forget the Pakistani born, Brandeis PhD neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui who became an Al Qaeda terrorist in the early 90s after marrying the nephew of Khaled Sheikh Mohammed. Yup, find em and educate them (for free) so that once again they can learn how to kill us.

    Hey, Abbie Hoffman graduated from Brandeis, Class of ’59. Go figure.

    Rocker on April 12, 2014 at 10:45 am

    Make that “purported” progressive thinking. I took an admissions interview there in Fall of 1963. All the admissions officer talked about was my clothes and my social life. Nothing about my academic aspirations or hopes. I had actually been encouraged to apply because I was an underachiever grade wise with high SATs. It was known that they admitted Jewish girls like me (having doctor parents was a BIG credential) to make good matches for all the smart Jewish boys. The idea was I should get in “someplace” and then show them what I could really do. Um, no! At the time, I’d been raised pretty liberal with my mother having ties to the Democratic party and was interested in government and political science. I was so disappointed, that I wouldn’t have gone there on a full ride, had one been offered. I didn’t accepted as it happened because I didn’t plan the social game well enough. That was clear when I walked out of the interview.

    Meira on April 13, 2014 at 1:33 am

      BTW, that was a non-Jewish teacher who recommended I apply so I didn’t want to believe the marriage mill stuff. After the interview, I believed it. Remember this was 1963. Some progress.

      Meira on April 13, 2014 at 1:36 am

Another thing this shows us (and we should use to the fullest extent) is that this so called “War on Women” is not near as important an issue to the left as not offending muslims is. Muslim coddling now trumps womens rights. Therefore, they have NO legs for using this as an issue in the coming elections.

Laura S. on April 12, 2014 at 9:34 am

Brandeis University is not much different from most “institutions of higher learning” in the USA today.That is if you describe higher education as the dissemination of Marxist/Socialist/Jihadist propaganda.

Jerry G on April 12, 2014 at 10:09 am

I am speechless! I have read quite a bit about this amazing woman and have heard her speak on TV. Brandeis’ actions are shameful. Now they care more about what an Islamist organization thinks than about allowing a woman to speak who has first-hand knowledge of many a woman’s fate in the Islamic world. For shame.

Jackie the Reader on April 12, 2014 at 10:59 am

Believers in the Koran (which tells them that Jews are descendants of apes and pigs and the lowest form of life, to be the object of murder) are having their way in reaching achievement of that objective. “I disagree with what you say, but I will defend unto death your right to say it…even if it ends all rights, free speech and others, and the lives of my family and my country.” Can we get a little logic in here, at least enough to ensure perpetuity of our moral principles? There has to be a limit to tolerance of intolerance, and our great ignorance of the Koran, Hadith, and Sunna will lead to short-lived bliss with smiling all the way to the chopping block. For a start, read chapters 8 & 9 of the Koran, and seek the innermost parts of Islam.

Nothing’s going to improve in this country, until the good people collectively grow a set of balls, and finally decide — once and for all! — to take this country back. The OLD-FASHIONED way!

    The old saying still holds true today: “The neck of the bottle is at the top.” QED.

While I agree that we have to have action on our part (Prov 21:31 – The horse is prepared against the day of battle; safety is of the Lord) The way this land will ever be made right is 2Chron 7:14 – If MY people, which are called by MY name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
He is not speaking to the heathen here.

Laura S. on April 12, 2014 at 1:34 pm

Brandeis has been a hotbed of anti-Semitism (!!!) for years. They have an unspoken quota system to limit the number of Jewish students!!! This was a school that was set up because of such quotas.

For years, they have had Jimmy Carter speak there, as well as other leftists. Mandela’s son spoke there, and got the loudest cheers when he accused Israel of being an apartheid state.

It is one more disgrace in the world of education, and one more disgrace in the world of JINO’s.

Jonathan E. Grant on April 12, 2014 at 3:01 pm


    Wow! Jews also make the best anti-Semites. Talk about your overachievers.

Stupid STUPID weak and pathetic Liberal/Leftist Jews. Sheep.

Dr.Frank.Lippenheimer on April 12, 2014 at 6:40 pm

Brandeis University has become entirely senseless and decadent.

Worry on April 12, 2014 at 11:45 pm

That Brandeis is caving to Hamas isn’t really as new as it appears. Brandeis has a long history of backing Leftist causes, and hard-line-Leftists are pro-Hamas and anti-Israel. It’s as simple as that. You can put the New York Times in the same boat as that crowd. The owners of the NYT, the Sulzberger family and related parties often send their kids to Brandeis.

For a little humor on Brandeis and its history of Leftism, heck out this clip from Woody Allen’s Annie Hall, where he’s introduced to Allison Portchnik (played by Carol Kane).


Ralph Adamo on April 13, 2014 at 3:39 am

Leftist Jews and Muslims make for natural allies because they are all fascists at heart. The leftist Jews are the fools though because after they are used by the Muslims, the Muslims will murder them along with everybody else.

David on April 13, 2014 at 8:51 am

If any case could be made about any “war on women,” Brandeis’ capitulation to the HAMAS set on Ms. Ali can be cited as one of many exhibits. (As opposed to the Left’s phony meme about the “war on women” which was concocted to justify their own war on the unborn, the family, religious liberty, and the culture of life itself.)

ConcernedPatriot on April 13, 2014 at 2:05 pm

Do American Jews have extremely short memories or are many of the Brandeis leaders just out and out cowards??

bobby99 on April 13, 2014 at 2:32 pm

For years I’ve heard people complain, “Where are all the radical feminists against Islam?!” Well you’ve got one with Ali. This femi fought tooth and nail in Holland to prevent restrictions on Muslim immigration there and attacked the “patriarchal” Christian believers as a hindrence to a “progressive” society. Atheism is the belief system she ascribes to and insists upon others. She’s your gal alright. Have fun.

    Yessir, RC, Pitchfork Pat would be proud of you.

    Trying to integrate Muslims into society??? The nerve of her. We all know that it is society’s responsibility to integrate to the Muslims.

    And an atheist? Terrible. We all know about the terrorist actions, beheadings, arranged marriages and honor killings committed by atheists. They are the ones who inspired the Muslims.

    But I am impressed by your strong condemnation of the way Muslims treat women.

    Little Al on April 14, 2014 at 7:13 am

      Try learning a bit before vomiting out ignorance.

      To read about Ms. Ali’s adulterous affair with the then married historian Niall Ferguson (who left his wife and three children for her and now pregnant with his urchin) go here:


      reality check on April 14, 2014 at 11:03 am

        Irrelevant. When looking at people, what is important is their most important characteristic.

        Here, it is a woman risking her life to publicize and combat Islamic barbarism. That is true even if your tabloid web site is accurate.

        But it is irrelevant. People leave their wives and husbands all the time; that is why there is a divorce rate of 50%.

        Even assuming that what you say is true, it doesn’t detract from the work she is doing to combat Islamic barbarism, which completely dwarfs the alleged flaws you mention.

        You have to look at the whole person, & make a balanced assessment. You aren’t really concerned with anything except her attacks on Islam. And they do outweigh everything. But you know that in order to have even a semblance of credibility on this site, you have to come up with stuff that is ostensibly plausible.

        And none of us knows the dynamics of what happened with her and Ferguson. You are making an assumption about the sequence of events because you hate her. A tabloid web site isn’t really very reliable verification.

        It’s too bad you don’t have the honesty to just say that you don’t like her actions concerning Islam.

And so many women’s studies professors at Brandeis coming out (excuse the pun) against Ali. Reminds me a little of the failure of the leftist women’s groups in the 90s to condemn Bill Clinton’s behavior.

John Smith on April 13, 2014 at 10:48 pm

It turned out the dead victims in Overland Park, Kansas weren’t Jewish. They could have been and what matters was the murderer’s intention – not the actual identity of the victims. Its sufficient he thought they were Jewish since he killed them at a Jewish institution.

It is still an anti-Semitic hate crime cuz of the assumed targets. And its a potent reminder that with anti-Semitism – hatred of Jews is such that other people who have nothing to do with Jews get caught in the crossfire. Dr. William Lewis Corporon and Reat Griffin Underwood – a grandfather and grandson who were Methodists, were murdered. An unidentified woman was murdered at another Jewish retirement center.

This is what happened when hate of the Jews knows no bounds. Decent non-Jews tragically die, too. It was pure happenstance Jews didn’t die on Sunday. They easily could have. And there will be many more incidents like this to come in the future – cuz we aren’t taking anti-Semitism as seriously as we should.

NormanF on April 14, 2014 at 12:53 am

    Norman, that is correct. The target, located in a heavily Jewish area, is perceived to be Jewish by it’s name and is indeed, as are all JCC’s sponsored and run by the local Jewish Federation. However memberships are open to all as is assistance for social issues because the Centers receive Federal Funds. JCC’s have swimming pools, fitness centers, classes on everything ranging from Torah to Zumba and more. Because they are Federally funded, they fall under the EEOC in regards to employment and cannot discriminate. None of this would matter to the haters however since the “Joos are running the place, like they do everything.” The NYDN says the terrorist is a KKKer. It was an anti-SEMITIC attack regardless of the ultimate victims’ identities.

    skzion on April 14, 2014 at 12:50 pm

      Heinous as the Kansas bombing is, I think we will be hearing about it for a long time.

      It falls right into Obama’s playbook, that terrorism is on the right, rather than the left. It also enables him to keep most of the Jewish vote in the liberal column; look at all the right wingers that could do the same thing that this crazed individual did. Isn’t the native-born right the danger, rather than the Muslims?

      Never mind that Obama finances Palestinian terrorists. The Jewish Press and most of the “civil rights” organizations will play this up as showing that, presumably, Republicans are only one step away from similar violence.

      Little Al on April 14, 2014 at 1:00 pm

The last person I thought that would be fooled into thinking Ali was some kind of conservative hero was you, DS. So she speaks out about Islam. So what?

She lied to get into Holland. Once there she went to work against Muslim immigration restrictionists. She condemns not only Islam but ALL religion. She also took a married man, Nial Ferguson away from his wife and three children and now is pregnant whit his kid. There’s more but that should be enough.
