FSWC Baffled by U of T response re Muslim cleric

FSWC continues to follow the story of the radical Muslim cleric, Abdullah Hakim Quick, who is presenting an 18-week seminar at the University of Toronto’s Muslim Student’s Association (Click here to read more in the Canadian Jewish News).

In response to FSWC’s letter of concern that the university is supporting hate speech by permitting him to lecture on campus, and despite Quick's previous statements concerning Jews, infidels and, especially his declaration that the "punishment for homosexuality is death," (Listen here) , University of Toronto Vice-President, Human Resources & Equity, Angela Hildyard responded, “. . . There is every expectation that Dr. Quick's teaching will be open and respectful. . ."

FSWC remains baffled by this statement and uncertain what this expectation is based on; his declaration that homosexuals deserve death seems clear. We will persist in following this story and will provide further updates as they become available.
