Why Tariq Ramadan was targeted for take down

Personally, I don't accept allegations beyond their expiration dates. Whether it happened or it didn't it is simply too late to prove it, I need to think no further! That even goes for Hollywood.



I support the women who have accused Tariq Ramadan of assault
Prof. Phyllis Chesler
Author of the book The "New Anti-Semitism

 The father of four, married for decades to a French Muslim convert, has repeatedly been accused of anti-Semitism over the years. However, he has rejected those allegations as well, fiercely defending his right to criticize the State of Israel.
The second point is that when we speak about oppression throughout the world, all the oppressed people should hear you saying that you protect them. So my point was that you are keeping silent — the majority of you — about the Palestinian reality. So please say something about this.
You can speak about Chechnya, Kosovo, Iraq, but the point is that you are forgetting the oppression in Palestine. Let us be consistent .…When I criticize Saudi Arabia, I’m not Islamophobic. And when I criticize Israel, I’m not anti-Semitic.
This is the central point for me. I said in the article that the future belongs to the people…from the Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and agnostic traditions [who] will be able to go beyond their belongings and to speak in terms of common universal values and denounce oppression.
