‘NYU suppresses free speech about Islam’

The protest over the proposal by a student group at New York University to display the Danish cartoons has been successful. Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute is not happy: “Wednesday, in a shameful act, NYU broke its own official policy and denied free speech to its students. After having approved the display of the Danish cartoons of the prophet Muhammad for a panel discussion on free speech hosted by a student group, NYU’s administration reversed its decision in the face of Muslim protests.”
