Brandeis Cancels Plan to Give Honorary Degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali

    The Muslim convert, former Dutch MP who has received death threats for her collaboration with Theo Van Gogh on the film Submission (which resulted in his murder), and activist, who has been honored for her "fight for the rights of Muslim women" will not be receiving an honorary degree from Brandeis University.

    Thought Police strike again, or was it a mistake for Brandeis to choose her in the first place, and she is an unworthy recipient?
