Lincoln University Should Not Be Proud of this Faculty Member

From the Campus Report Online:

One of the remarkable aspects of the War on Terror is the degree to which those who sympathize with movements with which the United States is in armed military conflict operate openly in America, particularly in Academia.

“Each Muslim, male and female, must realize the need for resistance (known as jihad in Islamic terminology) is as important as prayer and fasting,” Kaukab Siddique, an English professor at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, writes in Dajjal: Superpower U. S. A.. Originally published in 1991, the 31-page booklet went into its second printing in 2002, seven months after the September 11th, 2001 attacks upon the United States that claimed more lives than were lost in the 1941 attack upon Pearl Harbor that started World War II.
Furthermore, I would venture that this booklet counted positively toward his promotion, tenure, and salary determination even though he is in the English department.
