Georgetown University Rescinds Invitation to Radical Egyptian-Nazi Slated to Speak on Campus

Georgetown University was scheduled to host an event on the political turmoil in Egypt featuring a member of the country’s Nazi Party, according to a report by The Free Beacon.

The event, hosted by Georgetown University’s Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Center for Christian-Muslim Understanding, was reportedly set to feature a number of speakers including Ramy Jan, a member of Egypt’s Nazi party.

The center’s mission, according to Georgetown’s website, is to “build stronger bridges of understanding between the Muslim world and the West, as well as between Islam and Christianity.”

According to Breitbart.com, Ramy Jan was to discuss the coup against President Mohammed Morsi at the Dec. 5, 2013 event. After the news broke about his ties with the Nazi party, a promotional flier from Georgetown was distributed which omitted Jan’s name.

The New York Times reported that John Esposito, the host of the conference, said that Mr. Jan would no longer be involved in the event since the university learned of his ties with the Nazi party.

“This was news to us that he had a background like that and as soon as it came to our attention he was immediately disinvited,” Esposito said in the Times.“We had no idea that there was this issue out there.”

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., a pro-abortion Muslim who also supports same-sex marriage supporter, is also scheduled to speak at the conference.

Jan was featured in a 2011 documentary on the Nazi Party’s pursuit of world supremacy for the Egyptian race.

According to a translation from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Jan said in that video “We do not recognize the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.” He also said he hoped that Egypt would build a nuclear reactor.

“I think Georgetown has some serious questions to answer,” such as why are they providing a “platform for the Egyptian Nazi Party,” observed the Hudson Institute’s Samuel Tadros to the FreeBeacon.com.   Tadros first exposed Ran’s Nazi ties via Twitter. He continued, “Just by inviting him—that tells us something about the nature of the conference and those organizing it.”
