On April 23rd, Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Nonie Darwish and Simon Deng spoke at Temple University for an Islamic Apartheid Conference and the Muslims and “Socialist” came out in full force trying to not only oppose and protest the conference,,, but to shut it down by getting belligerent during the speakers speeches. Witness the intimidation and disruption tactics employed to try to stop this conference in the videos below. I especially liked Nonie Darwish’s speech.
Robert Spencer was the first speaker; listened to by most, although there was the to-be-expect disruption by a few (this happens in a couple of moments during Spencer’s opening remarks) and handled by the speaker (security seemed to just stand by and watch). He was followed by Pamela Geller.
In spite of a couple of hecklers, Ms Geller confidently waited them out and then spoke of her organization, dedicated to the individual human rights and to women’s rights. The next speaker was Nonie Darwish.
Ms Darwish spoke of her upbringing as a Muslim In Egypt, of leaving Islam and the Islamic Apartheid against Former Muslim, Christians and Jews. The next speaker: Simon Deng.
Simon Deng was enslaved at the age of 9 by Muslims in the Sudan; a horrible practice that continues throughout the Muslim world today. This was a powerful presentation….
Next is the Q and A
Part 1 of the Q and A. One heckler remained in the crowd ( ignored by security) and then many of the ‘questions’ were instead statements of propaganda. All handled superbly by the spaekers.
Part 2- Q and A continues with a concerned young man asking Robert Spencer about what he has read in the Quran. He doesn’t like the violence in the Quran. The loud mouth heckler shouts out a few times, but the Q and A continues in spite of him. Part 2 is intense and quite interesting .
Part 3 ( end of the Q and A) The students get more argumentative. Their minds are closed but the speakers, Spencer, Geller, Darwish and Deng are politely confident as they continue to address The Islamic Apartheid ….a truth these students refused to listen to.
And here is a video of the protest that happened outside at Temple University.
FROM THE VIDEO DESCRIPTION: “On April 23rd Temple University Students for Intellectual Freedom hosted a gathering of racist, Islamophobic bigots. The event was titled the “Islamic Apartheid Conference” and featured Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, among others.
Occupy Temple, the International Socialist Organization, Students for Justice in Palestine, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, Occupy Philadelphia and other community and student organizations held a protest to condemn their outrageous hate speech.
In the wake of the recent hate crime/murder of Shaima Alawadi (32 year-old Iraqi-Muslim, and mother of 5 children), the wrongful imprisonment of Tarek Mehanna, the murder of Trayvon Martin, and the constant demonization, criminalization, and crimes against Black, Latino, and other oppressed communities throughout the country, among unending wars against Arab and Muslim countries, we must organize a multi-racial fightback against these racist hatemongers. “
WHAT RACE IS ISLAM?
Courtesy of David Horowitz Freedom Center, The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran,
The Koran: It may be the most controversial book in the world. Some see it as a paean to peace, others call it a violent mandate for worldwide Islamic supremacy.
How can one book lead to such dramatically different conclusions? New York Times bestselling author Robert Spencer reveals the truth in The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran: not many Westerners know what’s in the Koran, since so few have actually read it — even among the legions of politicians, diplomats, analysts, and editorial writers who vehemently insist that the Koran preaches tolerance.
Now, Spencer unveils the mysteries lying behind this powerful book, guiding readers through the controversies surrounding the Koran’s origins and its most contentious passages. Stripping out the obsolete debates, Spencer focuses on the Koran’s decrees toward Jews, Christians, and other Infidels, explaining how they were viewed in Muhammad’s time, what they’ve supposedly done wrong, and most important, what the Koran has in store for them.

ISLAM – What the West Needs to Know
An examination of Islam, violence, and the fate of the non-Muslim world.
Virtually every major Western leader has over the past several years expressed the view that Islam is a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name are fanatics who misinterpret its tenets. This claim, while widely circulated, rarely attracts serious public examination. Relying primarily on Islam’s own sources, this documentary demonstrates that Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.
The documentary consists of original interviews, citations from Islamic texts, Islamic artwork, computer-animated maps, footage of Western leaders, and Islamic television broadcasts. Its tone is sober, methodical, and compelling.
Outline of the Documentary.
We hear from prominent Western leaders that Islam is peaceful and that those who commit violence in its name are heterodox fanatics.
Part 1: ‘There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet’
Our interviewees affirm their belief that Islamic violence is entirely orthodox behavior for Muslims and stems directly from the teachings and example of the Prophet Muhammad and the commands of the Koran. We learn that the example of Muhammad is one of a violent warlord who killed numerous people. The Koran — the verbatim words of Allah — prescribes violence against non-Muslims and Muhammad is the perfect example of the Koran in action.
Part 2: The Struggle
We learn that jihad, while literally meaning ‘struggle’, in fact denotes war fought against non-Muslims in order to bring the rule of Islamic law to the world. Violent death in jihad is, according to the Koran, the only assurance of salvation. One of our interviewees tells of his personal involvement in terrorism and his leaving Islam.
Part 3: Expansion
Following the death of Muhammad, his ‘rightly-guided’ successors carried his wars to three continents, fighting, enslaving, and massacring countless Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and others. Islam did not spread through evangelism or through its natural appeal, but through aggressive wars of conquest. The Crusades were largely a belated response on the part of Christian Europe to rescue Christians in the Holy Land suffering under Muslim oppression. The Muslim world today, while no longer the unified empire of the Caliphs, is exceptional for being responsible for the vast majority of conflicts around the world and for almost all of international terrorism.
Part 4: ‘War is Deceit’
A great problem with Western efforts to understand Islam is due to the Islamic principle of ‘religious deception’, which enjoins Muslims to deceive non-Muslims in order to advance the cause of Islam. Muslim groups today in the West employ deception and omission to give the impression that ‘Islam is a religion of peace’, an utter fiction.
Part 5: More than a Religion
The most important characteristic of Islam not understood by the West is that it is more a system of government than a personal religion. Throughout its history, Islam has never recognized a distinction between the religious and the secular/political. Islamic law governs every aspect of religious, political, and personal action, which amounts to a form of totalitarianism that is divinely enjoined to dominate the world, analogous in many ways to Communism.
Part 6: The House of War
Islamic theology divides the world into two spheres locked in perpetual combat, dar al-Islam (House of Islam – where Islamic law predominates), and dar al-harb (House of War – the rest of the world). It is incumbent on dar al-Islam to fight and conquer dar al-harb and permanently assimilate it. Muslims in Western nations are called to subvert the secular regimes in which they now live in accordance with Allah’s command. Due to political correctness and general government and media irresponsibility, the danger posed by observant Muslims in the West remains largely unappreciated.
