The Association of Libertarian Students today issued a press release referring to an incomprehensible scandal. Ali Rami, lecturer for anti-discrimination and religion at the University of Vienna, had insulted local police officers on Facebook in the harshest way. The man had already appeared at an event of the radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood in 2014. The Islamic scholar Ali Rami is supposed to have said about the Austrian police: “If you have nothing to do then stay damned in your holes and crawl out only when you are needed. What a dirty fool you have to be to get off on harassment and fear of kids” This was reported by the Association of Libertarian Students (RFS) in an APA press release.RFS federal chairman Lukas Heim was horrified by this. “Especially the police should be paid a lot of respect in these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
RFS federal chairman Lukas Heim was horrified by this. “Especially the police should be paid a lot of respect in these difficult times, of the COVID-19 pandemic.” The RFS further pointed out that Ali Rami appeared at an event of the radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood in 2014. In the background of the photo (above) published for this purpose, one can see the Islamist Rabia sign, which is now even banned in Austria. During an ORF television discussion in 2018, he allegedly refused to distance himself from the Muslim Brotherhood.
Clear steps are now expected from the university management. “With such a demasking an immediate dismissal is the only logical consequence , so RFS federal managing director Matthias Kornek. Also Freedom Party city councillor Maximilian Krauss demanded an immediate dismissal of Ali Rami as lecturer. “Ali Rami and his family environment are open sympathizers of the radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood and must therefore also be considered a danger to our society. That alone is reason enough to remove this person from the University of Vienna”, emphasizes the Viennese Freedom Party education spokesman.
