CAIR Files Complaint Against Florida Professor, Wants Him Fired Or Muzzled

A Belgian professor at the University of Central Florida (UCF) is in the crosshairs of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Jonathan Matusitz teaches a class on Terrorism and Communication which, obviously, includes Islam. Considering that the bulk of terrorist activity in this day and age, all over the world, is rooted in that religion, he's going to focus on that more than other terrorist activity.  Not that Islam is the only focus. In this video, Fifteen Reasons Why Terrorism Exists, he discusses the various reasons for terrorism, including religion, oppression, publicity, he even includes the Basque ETA terrorist organization, and white supremacist groups who target blacks and Jews. But CAIR filed a complaint against Matusitz  because they claim he supports Brigitte Gabriel's Actor for America (ACT), which it believes is an anti-Muslim hate group.

According to Matusitz, he just spoke with ACT.

CAIR posted this video of Matusitz  "spewing anti-Islam hate" in class.

"So why? Why do so many Muslims relative to other religions want to kill us? The answer is easy. Very easy. It's seven letters: culture."
"Imagine that symbolic interaction that from the cradle until you're an adult teaches you to hate."
CAIR says his classes are full of inaccuracies, bigotry and hostility, and accuses him of hate speech. But he speaks the truth, so how is that hate speech? Palestinians do teach their children to hate from the cradle,  and in most cases it lasts until the grave, which if they're martyrs isn't too long after they're born. Every day we read about multiple, horrific acts of violence, and often Muslim versus Muslim. He's not making anything up, and trying to muzzle people who do talk about it isn't going to make the problem go away. That is up to the Muslim world.

Matusitz said of the complaint:

"They've never been in my classes. They don't know the context of my classes."
"I think they're wrong. I think they're afraid of truth-tellers and they want to stifle free speech."
UCF's response:

"Dr. Matusitz expressed his opinion, which is his right. He was not speaking on behalf of the university and we do not endorse his views."

CAIR's YouTube video has disabled comments.

More on the issue.
