My experience with the University of Leeds · By Matthias Küntzel

Matthias Küntzel: Is there still room for debate ?

Küntzel is a scholar studying the historical connections between the Nazis and Islamists. The administration of the University of Leeds prevented him from speaking on the roots of Islamic Anti-Semitism (he had been invited to speak by the German Language Dept.). At first, the university administration claimed that they refused to let him speak because of threats to public safety -- threats which they did not specify. The university administration now demands that it review the content of his speech before allowing him to speak, yet they deny academic censorship.
