BREAKING: American Muslim Professor Defends Slavery, Rape     02/15/2017  American Action News  by: Remington Strelivo

                  A Muslim professor at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, is a-ok with rape and slavery.

Jonathan Brown, a 39-year-old professor who converted to Islam, gave a lecture entitled "Islam and the Problem of Slavery” at the International Institute of Islamic Thought in Herndon, Virginia.

But Brown apparently spent most of his 90 minute lecture talking about slavery in the United States, which ended in 1865, rather than slavery in Islam, which continues to this day.

"It’s not immoral for one human to own another human,” Brown said, explaining, shockingly, that employee-employer relations are really no different than slave-master relationships—leaving out that only one of those relationships is actually consensual and mutually-beneficial.

Umar Lee, who writes for Student Voices, attended the lecture—and reported on Brown’s startling pro-slavery comments:

"When discussing slavery in [Western nations], Brown painted slavery as brutal and violent (which it certainly was),” wrote Lee. "When the conversation would briefly flip to historic slavery in the Arab and Turkish World slavery was described by Brown in glowing terms. Indeed, according to Brown, slaves in the Muslim World lived a pretty good life.”

The conversation then switched to rape, after a woman in the audience asked Brown a question about the legality of sex with slaves.

"Consent isn’t necessary for lawful sex,” Brown told her, going on to explain that sexual consent was a Western concept.

Lee explained in his article that he was “deeply troubled” by Brown’s comments, and accused Brown of "hideously exploiting Georgetown’s commitment to be inclusive” by hiding behind Islam—because a Christian or Jewish professor making similar comments would have been undoubtedly fired amid national outrage from students, staff, and administrated.

"Brown constructs a world where the wrongs of the West excuse any wrongs (if he believes there are any) in the Muslim World,” Lee explained.
"I thought the Muslim community was done with this dishonest North Korean style of propaganda,” he added. "Obviously not."
