Professor Indrek Wichman speaks up to Muslim goons.

This past April we reported on Michigan State University professor, Indrek Wichman, who wrote the following letter to the local Moslem Student Association (MSA):

Dear Moslem Association: As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest.

I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey!), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavain girls and women (called “whores” in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France.

This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many, many of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile “protests.”

If you do not like the values of the West — see the 1st Amendment — you are free to leave. I hope for God’s sake that most of you choose that option. Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.

Cordially, I. S. Wichman, Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Well, MSU has now responded to Professor Wichman’s highly accurate and appropriate letter by offering “Diversity Training” on Islam for interested MSU employees. little green footballs summed it up thusly,

Radical Islamic front groups CAIR and MSA will settle for voluntary (for now) “diversity training” at Michigan State University, after their attempts to have tenured professor Indrek Wichman fired were unsuccessful.

The story is here, “E-mail to MSA spurs diversity training”

MSU officials plan on providing diversity training on Islam-related subjects to interested members of the university in response to an e-mail an MSU professor sent to the Muslim Students’ Association, or MSA, in February.

The initial request for the training came from the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, after Indrek Wichman, a mechanical engineering professor, wrote an e-mail to the group in response to controversial cartoons that portrayed Muhammad, the prophet and founder of the Islamic religion, as a terrorist.

In the e-mail, Wichman insisted that Muslims should return to their ancestral homeland if they don’t “like the values of the West.” He also generalized them as “dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems.”

“As a tenured professor who literally can influence the academic future of Muslims, we felt that the statements were inappropriate and can intimidate Muslim students of the engineering school,” said CAIR Executive Director Dawud Walid.

Wichman was unavailable for comment Wednesday, but he defended himself in a letter to the editor published in The State News in May.

“My letter addressed the attempts of the MSA to suppress free speech regarding publishing the Muhammed cartoons,” he wrote then. “It was not intended to impugn the integrity and decency of all Muslims in the United States.”

The MSA and MSU administrators worked together to organize diversity training for MSU faculty, staff and students. The meetings won’t be mandatory for anyone, but both organizing parties are hoping the topics discussed will attract a wide range of people, said Paulette Granberry Russell, senior adviser to the president for diversity and director of the Office for Affirmative Action Compliance and Monitoring for MSU.

“We’re working with the MSA to identify the things that they want to discuss,” Granberry Russell said. “Then we’re going to use those ideas as a basis for developing educational programs.”

“Hatred like this can’t be coming from our professors,” said Farhan Abdul Azeez, former MSA president and current MSA liaison to the university. “We’re trying to get more to the root of the problem, which is a misunderstanding of Islam and Muslims. This isn’t just for the Muslim community, but it’s for all minorities.”
