was scheduled to speak at Columbia and Princeton last week, but both
events were canceled under pressure from Muslim groups on campus.
a soft-spoken ex-Muslim and daughter of an Islamic martyr, is a
champion of the rights of women and non-Muslims in Islamic societies,
and leader of the group Arabs for Israel. She had been planning to
speak on “Sharia Law and Perspectives on Israel.” She is one of the few
courageous voices who speak out against Islamic anti-Semitism and the
oppression of women under Sharia.
At Princeton, she was
invited three weeks ago and was scheduled to speak last Wednesday. But
on Tuesday evening, Arab Society president Sami Yabroudi and former
president Sarah Mousa issued a joint statement, claiming: “Nonie

would make them “disgraced, humiliated and belittled.” Ibn Kathir said that
“Muslims are not allowed to honor the people of Dhimmah [Jews and Christians] or
elevate them above Muslims, for they are miserable, disgraced and
So who is more like
the KKK or neo-Nazis? A courageous woman standing up for human rights for Muslim
women and ex-Muslims, or a Muslim imam who holds up as an authority someone who
says that non-Muslims should be “disgraced, humiliated and belittled”?
