Why is the US letting Tariq Ramadan in, now that the Dutch finally threw him out?? From 2004-2010, Tariq Ramadan wasn’t allowed entry into the US. During these same years, he was welcomed as a professor at Erasmus University Rotterdam in Holland and as a consultant on cultural integration to the City of Rotterdam. Both the university and the city fired Ramadan in 2009, after they found out he was also hosting a talkshow on Islam at the Iranian government-sponsored (so: mullah-) tv station PressTV. How do the US president and the secretary of state think they can ‘pursue a new relationship with Muslim communities based on mutual interest and mutual respect’ through a collaborator of the Iranian government??
