David Horowitz, we’ve found your soul twin

From CNN:

Iran’s hard-line president urged students Tuesday to push for a purge of liberal and secular university teachers, another sign of his determination to strengthen Islamic fundamentalism in the country.

With his call echoing the rhetoric of the nation’s 1979 Islamic revolution, Ahmadinejad appears determined to remake Iran by reviving the fundamentalist goals pursued under the republic’s late founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

Ahmadinejad’s call was not a surprise — since taking office a year ago, he also has moved to replace pragmatic veterans in the government and diplomatic corps with former military commanders and inexperienced religious hard-liners.

Iran still has strong moderate factions but Ahmadinejad’s administration also has launched crackdowns on independent journalists, Web sites and bloggers.

Speaking to a group of students Tuesday, Ahmadinejad called on them to pressure his administration to keep driving out moderate instructors, a process that began earlier this year.

Dozens of liberal university professors and teachers were sent into retirement this year after Ahmadinejad’s administration named the first cleric to head Tehran University, sparking strong protests from students.

Purging Universities of Liberal Faculty? Who ever HEARD of such a thing? Yet another indication that Ahmadinejad is an ideologue- an enemy of freedom of expression and academic inquiry! The man must be stopped!

When we do it here, it’s different!

  1. Well, the difference is, they have more how you say follow-through over there.

    yeah, i think some days we should all be grateful for Dubya’s laziness and “C” (life) student status, quite honestly…

  2. clearly there are people that don’t want the 9/11 motives known.
    ABC’s movie just lied saying that bin laden said the attacks would continue “until you convert to Islam”
    this movie is very ugly propaganda

    what bin Laden has said has been crystal clear.

    “We swore that America wouldn’t live in security until we live it truly in Palestine. This showed the reality of America, which puts Israel’s interest above its own people’s interest. America won’t get out of this crisis until it gets out of the Arabian Peninsula, and until it stops its support of Israel.” -Osama bin Laden, October 2001

    “… the Mujahideen saw the black gang of thugs in the White House hiding the truth, and their stupid and foolish leader, who is elected and supported by his people, denying reality and proclaiming that we (the Mujahideen) were striking them because we were jealous of them (the Americans), whereas the reality is that we are striking them because of their evil and injustice in the whole of the Islamic World, especially in Iraq and Palestine and their occupation of the Land of the Two Holy Sanctuaries.” -Osama Bin Laden , February 14 , 2003

    No one should be suppressing the facts.

    What motivated the 9/11 hijackers?
    The video shows the 9/11 Commission Hearing where the question “What motivated them to do it?” was finally asked. See FBI Special Agent Fitzgerald explain the motive. This testimony was kept out of the 9/11 Commission Report and no recommendation was given to address the main motive for the 9/11 attacks.
