Desperate to appease Muslims, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed an order eight years ago that lifted a Bush-era ban on a radical Islamic scholar by the name of Tariq Ramadan.
“Both the president and the secretary of state have made it clear that the US government is pursuing a new relationship with Muslim communities based on mutual interest and mutual respect,” a State Department spokesman said at the time, as reported by The Guardian. “We’ll let that action speak for itself.”
Apparently, “pursuing a new relationship with Muslim communities” meant kowtowing to the whims of Ramadan, a Muslim fundamentalist whom the administration of former President George W. Bush had banned in 2004 over his ties to radical Islam.
Ramadan had been offered a teaching position at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana in 2004, but due to the Bush administration’s actions, he never made into it into the states.
Thankfully, though Clinton’s decision to reverse Bush’s policy in 2010 paved the way for the Islamic scholar to try again, he wound up being picked up by England’s Oxford University and settling down in Europe.
Now fast forward to early February, when a court in France charged Ramadan with rape over accusations made four months earlier by several women — and tossed this slimy cretin in jail.
“Mr. Ramadan, a 55-year-old theologian and philosopher, was placed under formal investigation on charges of rape and rape of a vulnerable person, according to a spokesman for the French judiciary,” The New York Times reported Feb. 2.
“The spokesman, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with department policy, said that Mr. Ramadan would be kept in custody while a judge decides on whether to grant him bail. The prosecution has requested that he remain under arrest.”
One of Ramadan’s accusers, a partially disabled woman who requires a crutch to walk, reportedly claims he raped and sexually assaulted her at a hotel room in the French city of Lyon in 2009.
Ramadan’s other accuser likewise claims he raped her in a Paris hotel in 2012. She reportedly told French media outlets that Ramadan had invited her to his hotel for a talk, but that once she arrived, he “literally pounced on” her “like a wild animal.”
This brings us to this past week, when the judge presiding over Ramadam’s case declined his request for bail, saying he wanted “to prevent any pressure on witnesses and victims,” as reported by CNS News.
As of Saturday, Feb. 10, Ramadan therefore remains behind bars in France, thousands of miles away from the United States, no thanks to the efforts of sexual abuse enabler Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Let’s be clear here: When Clinton reversed the Bush administration’s ban on Ramadan in 2010, she gave this monster an opportunity to sidle into the United States and hurt women just like those in France.
Moreover, given Clinton’s proven habit of automatically dismissing the complaints of women who’ve allegedly been sexually harassed and/or abused, one can’t help but wonder whether her decision to unban Ramadan was really motivated by a desire to pursue “a new relationship with Muslim communities.”
Was that really the reason, or was it rather because she has a special place in her heart for sexual abusers like Tariq Ramadan and, wouldn’t you know it, her own husband, former President Bill Clinton?
