France: Tariq Ramadan, accused of rape by five women, to speak on Machiavelli and Khalil Gibran



Leftists always stand by their friends and allies, while demanding that conservatives denounce any and all of their own who transgress perceived boundaries of acceptable discourse. If Tariq Ramadan were a conservative non-Muslim, the rape allegations would have been the end of his career, and he would never be invited to speak anywhere. If he were, there would be a media outcry that would force a cancellation.

“’Inadmissible’: in Carros, a debate organized with Tariq Ramadan is controversial,” translated from “‘Inadmissible’ : à Carros, un débat organisé avec Tariq Ramadan fait polémique,” Valuers Actuelles, January 7, 2022:

On January 21, an event will take place in Carros. A debate will be organized in the presence of Tariq Ramadan, also with 96 participants, reports Nice-Matin. If the exact location is still kept secret, it would be to avoid a controversy as large as in 2016, when he last visited the Côte-d’Azur. Carros’s municipal opposition challenged a planned March 2016 conference with Tariq Ramadan. The National Front (now called the National Assembly) even appealed to the Nice Administrative Court to have the event banned. Almost seven years later, Tariq Ramadan is still not welcome for some voices who are already rising up.

As Nice-Matin reports, this Friday, January 7, the controversy swells around the next debate in the presence of the Swiss Islamologist, accused of rape by five women and known to be close to the Muslim Brotherhood. To our colleagues, Marine Vengeon, of the collective and co-founder of Uni.e.s Nice, considered that it was “harmful and inadmissible to give a voice to a man accused of having raped women.” According to the feminist, the words of these alleged victims are thus “flouted.” “It’s bashing. This is exactly like appointing a minister accused of sexual violence inside,” she pointed out in reference to the rape charge against Gerald Darmanin, whose investigations ended in September 2021.

A media relentlessness?
On the occasion of this debate in Carros, Tariq Ramadan is supposed to comment on the following two works: The Prophet by Khalil Gibran and The Prince by Machiavelli. “We invite the author and the intellectual. We will not talk about religion, nor about its private affairs,” defended one of the organizers of the event to Nice-Matin. The journalist from Nice, Feïza Ben Mohamed, also close to Tariq Ramadan, recalls that the writer “has not been tried” and is therefore “presumed innocent.” She asked herself in Nice-Matin: “How many personalities, journalists, TV hosts, have the right to air when they are accused of similar acts?” She called in passing for “questioning the media treatment of Tariq Ramadan.” Despite everything, his arrival remains “very disturbing” for Marine Vengeon, who doubts the legitimacy of the Islamologist to debate literary works. “If it comes to commenting on The Prince of Machiavelli, I know dozens of people who would do it brilliantly. “
