George Mason University hosts Islamic Conference, September 24-25, 2004

30th Annual Conference of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS).

Tariq Ramadan, a master of the art of taqiyya whose visa was recently revoked by the U.S. government, was scheduled as the featured speaker. In an article on the op/ed page of the September 27, 2004 Wall Street Journal, Fouad Ajami wittily noted, "The man [Ramadan] condemning McDonald's was coming to an academic institute funded by an endowment granted by McDonald's heiress, Joan B. Kroc," namely, the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame.
