Barry says:

What’s vague or scattershot about the criticism of Yale?

Yale deferred to the violent and beast-like American Muslonazi community. This is the same Yale that wouldn’t publish cartoons of the pedophile and genocidal war criminal Mohammed because they were scared of American Muslonazi violence.

You think such wimps would be open to a frank discussion about the pathologies of the Shari’ah, the moral inferiority of the Koran, and the wickedness of American Muslonazis?

Jack Khouri says:

Mr Barry, If you live on a piece of Palestinian land, pack up and have your Ecuadorean or American passport ready and hit the road as soon as possible, because Arabs are coming to regain their occupied land.Your hatred against Muslims and their prophet Muhammad won’t do good for your cause.No more puppet rulers manipulated by US foreign policy.
