Last night I attended one of the many outstanding programs produced by the Forum on Law, Culture & Society, directed by Thane Rosenbaum.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an outspoken defender of women's rights in Islamic societies. Born in Mogadishu, Somalia, she escaped and arranged marriage by immigrating to the Netherlands, where she served as a member of the Dutch Parliament. In 2004, with director Vincent Van Gogh, she made the documentary film, Submission, a film about the oppression of women in Islamic cultures for which Van Gogh was murdered. She established the AHA foundation to help oppressed women and has written three books.
Bret Stephens is the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and editor of the WSJ who appears often on television. In my opinion, he is the most brilliant political thinker and commentator we have in the US today.
Thane Rosenbaum is the author of many books and essays who is a senior fellow of the NYU School of Law. Every year the Forum has a film series which he organizes and for which he leads the post-screening discussions.
I hope that you will all be able to watch this program soon on JSSTV.org, (formerly Shalom TV).
People have succeeded in silencing Ayaan's voice on college campuses like Brandeis. That's because many "liberals" do not allow free speech if it does not fit with their world view. I fear that we have a generation of college graduates who only know the propaganda they hear, funded by Arab oil money
