Georgetown University Hosts 9/11 Truther...
(by Adam Kredo, WFB) -- Just days after it came under fire for engaging with a member of Egypt’s Nazi Party, Georgetown University hosted an event with a 9/11 Truther who has claimed that Osama bin Laden was not involved in the 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers.
A Thursday afternoon panel sponsored by Georgetown was chaired by Boston College Professor Natana DeLong-Bas, who has defended Islamic fundamentalism and maintained that bin Laden played no role in the most deadly terror attack on American soil.
DeLong-Bas was scheduled to be joined on the panel by Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) and former White House advisor Dalia Mogahed. The event, which focused on the future of Muslim-Christian relations, was organized by Georgetown’s Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.
The controversial panel took place just days after the Washington Free Beacon reported that Georgetown was slated to host a December 5 event with Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Ramy Jan, who also is a key member of the country’s Nazi Party.
DeLong-Bas is known to be an outspoken critic of the official 9/11 narrative and has implied that Islamic terrorism is a product of Western intervention in the Muslim world.
“I think that the Western media and the world have given Osama bin Laden more weight [than he has in reality] and exaggerated in depicting the danger he poses,” DeLong-Bas said in a now infamous 2006 interview with the Al-Sharq Al-Awsatnewspaper.
“Likewise, I do not find any evidence that would make me agree that Osama bin Laden was behind the attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center,” she said, according to a reproduction of the interview supplied by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). “All we heard from him was praise and acclaim for those who carried out the operation.” Read more via The Washington Free Beacon...
