Wichman speaks

The prof tried to defend himself, here:

My letter addressed the attempts of the MSA to suppress free speech regarding publishing the Muhammed cartoons. It was not intended to impugn the integrity and decency of all Muslims in the United States.


Finally, although I am outraged by the abuses committed in the name of Islam, I have only the deepest respect for the many fine Middle Easterners, whether practicing Muslims or not, whom I have come to know during my 20 years of service to MSU; as co-faculty; as undergraduate students; as graduate students; as postdocs; as coauthors on dozens of publications; and as friends.

My letter was in no way directed toward them or the many other law-abiding and decent Muslims both here and elsewhere.

Okay, let's look at that letter one more time.

Dear Moslem Association: As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intened to protest your protest. I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey!), burnings of Christian chirches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavain girls and women (called "whores" in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France. This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many, many of my colleagues. I counsul you dissatisfied, agressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile "protests." If you do not like the values of the West--see the 1st Ammendment--you are free to leave. I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option. Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans. Cordially, I. S. Wichman, Professor of Mechanical Engineering.

Call me persnickity, but I'm having a real hard problem synching what he's saying up above with what he wrote to the MSU Moslem Students Association. I think this is a rather sad attempt to cover his ass now that he's been revealed as the Poop Bandit.
