I just hope he doesn't get shouted down

Yesterday, I bought my ticket to go listen to a presentation by former PLO terrorist Walid Shoebat, who will be speaking at Freeborn Hall on the campus of U.C. Davis on Tuesday, February 6th, at 7pm. Mr. Shoebat has written two books about his life as a former Islamic terrorist and his eventual conversion to Christianity and renouncement of his former life.

I posted this quote from Mr. Shoebat a few months ago:
...The other dangerous trend is that all fundamentalists are being lumped as fanatics. At the BBC in England during one interview the interviewer stated to me that “the problem with today’s world is fundamentalism” to which I responded “Christian fundamentalists give the world a headache, I confess, but Muslim fundamentalists will whack your head right off your shoulders, sir” I was quickly thanked and escorted out of the BBC.
This is the kind of event where I can easily see the intolerance-in-the-name-of-tolerance crowd showing up to shout down or otherwise disrupt Mr. Shoebat from giving or finishing his speech. I have to admit, I will be rather intrigued if this happens because I have read many times about the intolerant antics of the left-wing protestors on our college campuses and seen some film of it - you hopefully have seen my post about what happened to the Minutemen at Columbia University - but I have never watched it happen in person.

On the other hand, I am really interested in what Walid Shoebat has to say, and I will be bummed if he is forced from the stage by the left-wing and activist-Muslim crybabies in the audience who may recoil in horror at the thought of an opposing point of view. If you think I am being overly dramatic, I again refer you to the Columbia University post link above.

Whatever happens, be assured that I will provide a full report. And if you want to go to this event yourself, there might still be tickets available. Call the U.C. Davis box office at (530) 752-1915. And thank you to reader Tia for the tip about Mr. Shoebat's visit to U.C. Davis.

Good Day to You, Sir
