Radical Sheik Who Called For Deaths of U.S. Troops Invited to Yale
Yale University has sparked major controversy by inviting a radical Tunisian sheik to discuss Islamic law at the school.
Sheikh Rachid al-Ghannouchi was invited to headline an event this afternoon, despite that he was a member of a group that endorsed the murder of U.S. troops, and he was banned from the U.S. for supporting Hamas.
Muslim speaker Mike Ghouse, of America Together Foundation, and columnist Pamela Geller were on “Hannity” to debate.
“This guy shouldn’t be in our country,” Sean Hannity said, explaining that al-Ghannouchi has called for the death of American soldiers and therefore is at war with the U.S.
Ghouse said he should be allowed to speak in the country because of freedom of speech.
Geller called it “outrageous” and a “travesty” that he was invited to speak at Yale.
“The academic landscape today welcomes radicals, welcomes subversives […] they never invite pro-freedom speakers,” she said.
