Letter to Yale University Opposing Removal of Mohammed Images from Book -- NCAC


Letter to Yale University Opposing Removal of Mohammed Images from Book -- NCAC: read it and take note: if violence is allowed a "hecklers veto" over academic freedom, it will not end. It is craven appeasement. Would Yale University Press refuse to publish a book on the civil rights movement if white supremacists threatened violence over pictures of Bull Connor's men attacking peaceful protesters? Would they refuse to publish a book on World War II if neo-Nazis threatened violence over pictures of concentration camps? I fully support the sponsors of this letter, even the usually-suspect AAUP.
