Wow! I Wish I Could Have Written This.

I. S. Wichman, a professor of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University found himself in the news when he sent a protest letter to the Pro Muslim organization CAIR who in turn took his private e-mail sent to them and used it to incite the Muslim students at the university to protest him and call for his discharge from employment at the university.

Professor Wichman’s e-mail was sent in counter to the Muslim outrage worldwide at the recent derogatory cartoons released from Denmark and other places over the Internet mocking their founder, Mohammed and the Islamo-Fascist terrorist movement in general.

Liberatarian, radio talk show host, Neil Boortz’ posted the professors e-mail to CAIR on his webpage. Here it is:

"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 Scandinavain 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, 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.

Cordially, I. S. Wichman, Professor of Mechanical Engineering"

It looks like the Professor has hit the proverbial nail smack dab on it’s head. Apparently, his sentiments are shared by a great many Americans. You can peruse a slew of comments * made at Detroit Free Press’s comment board which poses the question, “How should MSU respond to professor’s comments?”.

Did the professor have the right to send such an e-mail to CAIR? You bet. The First Amendment guarantees him that right. Did CAIR and the Muslim students at MSU have the right to protest Professor Wichman’s e-mail? You bet. Again, the First Amendment guarantees them that right. Does MSU have the right to fire Professor Wichman? Absolutely not. That would be an egregious violation of his constitutional right to freedom of speech.

There has been some misunderstanding regarding Wichamn’s e-mail. First, and foremost it should be pointed out, that regardless of any University policy, Wichman’s e-mail was not sent to the Muslim students on campus. It was sent to an off-campus organization, CAIR.

Second, therefore, he was not espousing his opinion in his college classroom, (which of course liberal, anti-American professors do on a daily basis, no matter how far their political opinions are from the subject matter of their course), so any university policy would not apply.

Those students can protest all they want, but they along with CAIR, and for that matter all of the Muslims in the world don’t deserve “special rights” above the rights of others.
They don’t have the right to just their own view point with no dissent against it.

I agree with Professor Wichman totally. If they don’t like dissent of their viewpoint, they might as well just leave our country. We are not about to change our Constitution just for them or anybody else for that matter. They are living in Western Civilization’s greatest country. If Western ideals and lifestyles bother them, then the solution is simple, go back to the Middle East. They can go to a country that is dominated and under the control of Islamic leaders. Then, they will be right at home, and not have to listen to any opinion contrary to their own.

Isn’t it funny how silent the Muslim community was after 9/11? How silent they were after the murderous beheading of Daniel Pearl? How silent they were after the gruesome slow, beheading of Nicholas Berg? The only time they open their collective mouths is either to warn us that they may in danger of blowback persecution or discrimination or to turn out in droves in protest to the recent derogatory cartoons. So, apparently they can turn out in great numbers to express their outrage. When they want to. When it is in their best interest.

Until the Muslim community comes out blatantly against the atrocities done in the name of their religion by the bloodthirsty, hate filled, demon possessed terrorists, no decent person is going to look at them with anything other than suspicion. The impression is that while they may not be swinging the sword to behead Westerners, they are holding the coat of the Islamo-Fascist demon, while he slaughters the innocent in the name of Allah.

Professor Wichman effectively puts the ball back into the Muslim court. How are they going to respond?
