“Actually, it is the moharebeh jihadis that are encouraging Islamophobia with their chrstianophobia, jewophobia and femaleophobia, not to mention their Sunniophobia or Shiiteophbia.

These people are haram. If they were the subject of a fatwa by every faithful imam in every mosque of righteous Muslims, Islamophobia would fall dramatically.

    What was the Prof thinking? We don't want students hearing both sides of a story, expecially if our minds are already made up. 
   Of course he should be disciplined for allowing free and open debate - there is no place for that at a university, is there?

“O'Reily vs Brand - two stand-up comics disagree about something and it is front-page news?  Hyping a comedian's views about an  infotainment network as "news" is an insult to your readers.  

Is Huffpo getting paid for this article?  If not, it is nice to see that Russel is still doing well with his self-publicity campaign.

“Good thinking George - whether they agree with you or not, if they are from Israel you are aginst them.

Now imaginne someone said: "we don't want any tourists from Gaza because of the rockets they fire at civilians." Or from Pakistan because of what the Taliban do there. Or from Russia, because of Putin. I think we could get quite a list up and ban visitors from pretty much anywhere.

“Because people will not pay for it to be done.

How many who think this is a scandal have sent ANY money to any one working on Ebola.

How many have even asked their representatives to contribute taxpayer money to work on Ebola?

It is not big pharma that doesn't care: no one cares.

Once people start worrying about their own safety, THEN they are willing to relax controls and oversight in order to fast-track drug trials - but not before.

And even then, they want someone else to pay for it.

““There’s no such thing as a little bit of rape or a mild rape. Let’s just get that clear once and for all.”

That was not the question: the question was "is there such a thing as a worse rape?" That is, can you imagine that one rape could be more terrible for a victim than another. Ms Chakrabarti seems to think not: she imples that all rapes are the same, regardless of circumstance. I can see how someone might take this position, but I suspect that there are many who do not.
