Nonie Darwish to Speak on Campus

Nonie Darwish, an Egyptian-born American writer and speaker, will be on campus Thursday, May 22, 7-9 p.m. in Lillis 282. Darwish is the author of Now They Call Me Infidel: Why I Renounced Jihad for America, Israel and the War on Terror. She has a rather atypical perspective on the issue, so regardless of one’s stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict, this should an interesting lecture to say the least.

The event will be hosted by the College Republicans. For more information, check the Facebook event.

    Nonie is pretty good for speaking for herself from what I’ve heard.

  2. Sakaki says:

    Depends on the type of security that is there. I may just have to get back down there and keep an eye on the Pacifica Forum tailwaggers that will no doubt end up showing up.

  3. Chris Holman says:

    Honestly, it’s why I stopped going to Israel-Palestine events as often.

    Rational discourse is thrown out the window, the speaker is overshadowed by audience assholes, and a frustrating cacophany of rapscalion whining fills my ears.

  4. Vincent says:

    They will.

  5. Chris Holman says:

    I hope the trolls don’t show up and ruin it.
