Gates of Vienna News Feed 3/4/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 3/4/2011Libyan dictator Col. Muammar Qadafi has refused an offer of asylum from Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega. However, Col. Ghedaffi is reportedly considering possible mediation by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who has offered to broker peace negotiations to end Libya’s civil war.

Arid Uka, the Kosovar-German jihadist who killed two American soldiers in Frankfurt, is now believed to have developed an extensive network of radical Muslim connections over Facebook. Facebook was also an important factor in the organization of today’s “Day of Rage” in eastern Saudi Arabia, in which the Shia minority protested their treatment at the hands of the Sunni governing authorities.

Another Facebook-organized protest took place in Croatia, where demonstrators took to the streets of Zagreb to burn EU flags, complain about government corruption, and protest the concentration of property in foreign hands.

  1. Daily Telegraph: “Libya and the LSE: Large Arab gifts to universities lead to ‘hostile’ teaching”

    “[…] Yet, on the most conservative estimate, other British universities have received hundreds of millions of pounds from Saudi and other Islamic sources – in the guise of philanthropic donations, but with the real intention of changing the intellectual climate of the United Kingdom.

    […] A study of five years of politics lectures at the Middle Eastern Centre at St Antony’s College, Oxford, found that 70 per cent were “implacably hostile” to the West and Israel. A friend of mine, a former Oxford academic, felt that his time was largely spent battling a cadre of academics overwhelmingly hostile to the West, in an ambience in which students – from both Britain and abroad – were presented a world-view that was almost exclusively anti-Western.”
