Georgetown Lecturer Whitewashes Islamism, Blames West for Jihadis

by Andrew Harrod April 26, 2019'

Non-Muslims must “reject the feelings of cultural, racial, and religious superiority that drive false narratives of barbarous Muslims versus civilized Westerners or peaceful Christians,” pontificated Luther College Professor Todd Green. His April 8 Georgetown University presentation attempted to induce guilt in non-Muslims over real and alleged historical atrocities, while whitewashing modern Islamist and jihadist threats.
Green lectured about thirty listeners in the conference room of Georgetown’s Saudi-funded Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU). With Georgetown Professor Tamara Sonn as moderator, he presented his recent book, Presumed Guilty: Why We Shouldn’t Ask Muslims to Condemn Terrorism, under the auspices of ACMCU’s anti-“Islamophobia” Bridge Initiative. The audience included fellow Islamist apologists and ACMCU/Bridge faculty Jonathan Brown, Yvonne Haddad, and Hannah Sullivan. Muslim reformers Mike Ghouse and Faranaz Ispahani also attended.

Green generalized that “one of our favorite past times is to single out Muslims after terrorist attacks and ask them to condemn violence they have had nothing to do with.” He contrasted such behavior with numerous Muslim condemnations of terrorism, such as the website Muslims Condemn, and concluded flippantly that “reading Muslim condemnations of terrorism is pretty boring.” He omitted that influential Islamist organizations like the Hamas-derived Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have refused to denounce terrorists such as Hamas or have issued qualified denunciations of the Islamic State. Even many American Muslims remain concerned that Muslim leaders have refused to denounce extremism..........To Read More.....

My Take - What makes these apologists most disgusting in their efforts to justify the crimes of Islam is they're supposed to be educated.  But in what?  It's clearly not history, because anyone whose read about the history about Islam and Islam's interaction between them and rest of the world has to know this is nothing more than propaganda in it's most disgusting and disingenuous form.  A common practice of leftists.  Rewrite or eliminate any history that's in violation of the false narrative they're painting for the public.  And since most of the public's knowledge of history, any history, is largely lacking,  they get away with it.
