The Woman Who Called Duke To File A Complaint About A Muslim Chant Claims Police Investigated Her Afterwards…

This wouldn’t surprise me either – it has the look and feel of CAIR all over it. The school originally said that they called off the Muslim call-to-prayer because instead of bringing people together, it divided them. Sounds nice, huh? Except what they now say is that there were abusive phone calls and violent threats against poor, innocent Muslims, so they had to cancel it. Yeah, threats like this vanilla call from a woman to a staffer for the men’s basketball team, simply stating that if Duke continued with this type of pandering to Islam, it would hit them in the pocketbook. For her complaint, she got two calls from the Duke police department. When Pam said she would complain about harassment over free speech, they demanded to know who she was going to complain to. Well, it sure wouldn’t be the local Imam, but I’m not sure if anyone on the Duke police force is listening either.

From Weasel Zippers:

Wouldn’t put it past them.

Via Daily Caller:

An Ohio woman who says she called Duke University — to speak her mind about a plan to allow a Muslim student group to issue a weekly call-to-prayer on campus — claims she was contacted by a member of the Duke University Police Department who said she was conducting an investigation about the phone call.

The woman, who asked to be identified only by her first name, Pam, said she called the office of the Duke men’s basketball team early Thursday after she read that the school was planning to allow the Muslim Students Association to chant a call-to-prayer, the “adhan,” over a microphone from the Duke Chapel bell tower each Friday.

The move outraged many, including Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of Billy Graham; though later in the day on Thursday, the private university in Durham, N.C., reversed its decision to allow the call-to-prayer claiming that its effort to ”unify was not having the intended effect.”

But on Friday university spokesman Michael Schoenfeld offered a different rationale for the change of course, telling CNN that the plan was being scrapped due to a “credible and serious security threat” and that the school had received a number of phone calls which were “pretty loud and nasty.”

Schoenfeld provided no details of the threats — though said that the FBI was involved in an investigation.

But the school apparently decided that Pam’s phone call required an investigation, though she says she made no threats whatsoever.

“I called the basketball department because Duke basketball is big and with the Final Four coming up I wanted them to know that their fans aren’t going to be fans much longer if they keep doing this stuff,” Pam told The Daily Caller on Thursday, before the school had publicly stated that it had received threats.

“If you want to do this kind of thing, well then it’s going to hit you in the pocketbook,” Pam continued, adding ”maybe the sponsors will turn away when they do stuff like this that infuriates American citizens.”

The Duke police department won’t answer questions on this or return the Daily Caller’s phone calls. Neither will the men’s basketball team. No actual threats were specified. This is a typical move out of CAIR and other Islamic organization’s playbooks to intimidate those who do not submit to the ways of Islam. University spokesman Michael Schoenfeld said it was due to a “credible and serious security threat” and that the school had received a number of phone calls which were “pretty loud and nasty.” I’d like to see actual proof of that, thank you. I’d also like to know who initiated the investigation. Duke gets a failing grade here for allowing proselytizing on campus and the use of intimidation when people objected to it.
