Student newspaper destroys every copy of latest edition featuring cartoon of Muhammad.
The April 5, 2016 issue of The Gleaner, the student paper of Rutgers University–Camden, published a cartoon of Muhammad, Buddha and Jesus in a bar. Its content, however, cannot be known at this point, because at the behest of Muslims on campus, and in a case fraught with implications for the health of the freedom of speech today, the entire issue has been deep-sixed.
Two weeks after the cartoon was published, the April 19 issue of The Gleaner contained a letter from the Muslim Brotherhood campus group, the Muslim Students Association, saying that it found the image offensive and asking The Gleaner to remove the image from the April 5 issue and circulate a new edition of that issue without it. The MSA letter claims that Christians and Jews on campus told MSA members that they, too, found the image offensive.
The MSA letter states: “Even though freedom of speech and press is emphasized and is something all of us value as proud Americans, the University prides itself on diversity of people of different faith and backgrounds so we feel that it is necessary to respect those faiths and backgrounds by honoring their beliefs.”
The April 19 Gleaner also contains a response to the MSA letter, written by Christopher Church, the Editor-in-Chief of The Gleaner. Church apologizes to the MSA and agrees to meet with it “so that we can rectify this issue and ensure that it doesn’t happen again.” He also agrees to remove any copies of the offending April 5 issue from the Gleaner boxes around campus and destroy them.
The Jihad Watch reader who alerted me to this sums up what is wrong here:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations is at it again, only this time in a new state. The Oklahoma chapter of CAIR has planned a “Muslim Day” at the state capitol on Friday, Feb 27.
CAIR had a “Muslim Day” at the Texas State Capitol building in January, where they were met with sizable protests.
During the Texas rally a woman walked up to the podium, took the mike and stated, “I stand against Islam and the false Prophet Muhammad.”
“Islam will never dominate the United States,” she continued. “And by the grace of God it will not dominate Texas!”
When our president says, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” he does so under the false notion of appeasement. He believes that in his calls for “civility,” he’ll be fostering a more tolerant environment for everyone. We are the world and what have you. There are a few problems here. Firstly, let’s address the word slander. By definition, slander is to make false and damaging statements about (someone). Muhammad was a hateful, warmongering, wife-beating pedophile whose dying words were that of calling for the deaths of Christians and Jews.
How can any damaging statement that one makes about such a person be “false”? There is no falsehood under the sun with which I could “slander” Muhammad (terrorism be upon him) that could possibly be worse than his actual actions. You say tomato, I say historical accuracy.

The Islamic fire, fueled by immense oil income, is raging in certain regions of the world, smoldering in others, and is ready to ignite in yet other parts of the world. It is imperative for the free people of the world to abandon all illusions about Islam and put out its fire, once and for all.
Multiculturalism, live and-let live, is a delusion of kind-hearted naïve people. Islam, as fractured as it is, is a non-compromising monoculture; a cruel culture of a primitive people handed down by Muhammad some 1400 years ago.

A great irony of the age is that the seemingly most diehard proponents of freedom— the useful idiots of our time—are the most dangerous unwitting accomplices of liberty’s enemy—Islam. Keep in mind that the very name “Islam” is a derivation of “taslim,” the Arabic word for “surrender,” surrender to the will and dictates of Allah as revealed by Muhammad and recorded in the Quran.
This non-negotiable surrender to Islam requires the individual as well as the society to disenfranchise themselves of many of the fundamental and deeply cherished human rights.
Below is a brief presentation of what this surrender to Islam entails and why it is imperative that all freedom-loving people arise and defeat the menace of Islamofascism.
