Mohammed Cartoon Watch: American Professor Fired in Bahrain
A summary display of the Mohammed cartoons that sparked riots last year throughout the Muslim world
An American Professor teaching in Manama, Bahrain was fired over the display of the Mohammed cartoons on his personal website.
His students ratted him out to the university officials who initially suspended the professor but later fired him due to ongoing student protests.
“The university eventually backtracked on its decision to reinstate the professor and sacked him despite a formal apology and the removal of the cartoons from his website,” the sources said.
Gulf News did not give the name or location of the university, but marked the report from Manama in Bahrain.
A word to the wise for ANY Americans going overseas to teach or conduct business in the Islamic world. Freedom of speech is NOT a protected right in many of these countries, including Bahrain.
