Georgetown U transfers control to Muslims

15 MuHarram 1431 A.H. (January 1, 2010 AD): Georgetown University, a historically Jesuit university, has become the first university in the United States to transfer control to a Muslim Board of Trusties, Alhamdilillah. All crucifices have been removed from classrooms and broken, emulating the example of Isa-alaiyhis salaam, who will return to smash crosses, and have been replaced by an arrow pointing to Mecca, so that students can interrupt class to pray. Wudu facilities for ritual washing have been installed every three classrooms so that students can wash before prayer. Student boards that adjudicate complaints against students' behavior in the dormitories have instituted sharia. Students discovered having sex outside of marriage will be stoned. Alchohol is forbidden on campus, even for Mass that the Muslim leadership has so graciously accorded to the remaining Catholics on campus. Georgetown University is negotiating with bars and restaurants in Georgetown to stop serving alcohol in order not to corrupt Muslim campus life.
OK, so it's not April Fools. Ridiculous? Maybe. But consider:
At Georgetown University, Muslim women can live apart in housing that enables them to "sleep in an Islamic setting," as the website puts it. According to a student at the time the policy was adopted, the university housing office initially opposed the idea, on grounds that all freshman should have the experience of "living in dorms and dealing with different kinds of people." That might sound appealing, Muslim students told a reporter in an article featured on the website. But in their view, the reporter wrote, "learning to live with 'different kinds of people' " actually "causes more harm than good" for Muslims, because it requires them to live in an environment that "distracts them from their desire to become better Muslims, and even draw[s] weaker Muslims away from Islam."
Again, this is taken from the via Dhimmi Watch.
