Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, has been trying to gain entry into the United States to live since 2004.
At the American University of Beirut last Thursday, Ramadan charged that America bans all democratically political groups who disagree with it. He also shilled for Hezbollah!
"...The United States should not claim to be pushing for democracy when it bans all democratically elected groups who are critical of it, he noted.This man should never be allowed into America!
Ramadan, who was speaking before a large audience at AUB said that the United States deals with Muslim-majority nations with the attitude of, "You are bad if you are against me. You are good if you are with me." He added that "this is a colonial mindset."
...On the other hand, all democratic Muslim political groups are critical of the United States, and that's what earns them the label of radical, Ramadan added.
...But Ramadan said that it is not possible to cancel groups who have a popular support base and are part of the country's political and social fabric. "Take Hizbullah, for instance, whether you agree with them or not, they are here, and have people who support them. You cannot call them terrorists. You have to talk with them. And talking doesn't mean you agree with their views, it only means that you recognize the complex dynamics of society. And this is real democracy," he said..."
