Muslim scholar denied U.S. visa

"Acting at the request of the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. government has revoked the work visa of a Muslim scholar who had been scheduled to teach at the University of Notre Dame this fall. Tariq Ramadan, a Swiss citizen who has been criticized for links to Islamic militants and for remarks branded anti-Semitic, was supposed to begin teaching on Tuesday, the first day of the fall semester."

So Notre Dame wants to spend its money by hiring an anti-semitic Muslim scholar? I am just glad it is not a Catholic school or this would be a scandal!
