Islamic Studies Professor Blames Paris for Her Attack


Inhumane is how most would describe anyone who states, “I am not praying for Paris; I am not condemning anyone. Why the hell should I?”  Farid Esack, an Islamic Studies professor, is the purveyor of this hostile sentiment.  His Facebook post blames the West for their “deserved” attack in Paris.

He is a disgusting human for holding such a view.  It is a similar stance as saying a woman in a short skirt is asking to be raped.  The victim is to blame, not the perpetrator.

His Facebook post, however, pulls no punches, blaming the West and Israel:

I am not praying for Paris; I am not condemning anyone. Why the hell should I?. I had nothing to do with it. I am sickened by the perpetual expectations to condemn. I walk away from your shitty racist and Islamophobic expectations that whenever your chickens come home to roost then I must feign horror. Stop supporting and funding terror outfits, get out of other people’s lands and continents, stop outlawing peaceful resistance such as Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement, to occupations , abandon your cultural imperialism, destroy your arms industry that provides the weapons that kill hundreds of thousands of others every year. The logic is quite simple; When you eat, it’s stupid to expect that no shit will ever come out from your body. Yes, I feel sorry for the victims on whom the shit falls. But, bloody hell, own it; it’s yours!

Esack’s original post on Nov. 14 was edited only marginally; the Nov. 15 version is slightly more bombastic.

Ironically, Esack himself was once targeted by Islamic extremists after he defended women’s right to speak at a mosque in Cape Town in the 1990s.

Previously, Esack served as Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Professor of Contemporary Islam at Harvard University.
