Professor's e-mail to the Muslim Student's Association at MSU

The following is true per http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/wichman.asp
The story begins at Michigan State University with a mechanical engineering professor named Indrek Wichman. Wichman sent an e-mail to the Muslim Student's Association. The e-mail was in response to the students' protest of the Danish cartoons that connected the Prophet Muhammad with today's Islamist terrorists. The group had complained the cartoons were "hate speech."
Professor Wichman's e-mail said the following:
"Dear Moslem Student's Association:
As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest. I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called "whores" in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France.
This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many of my colleagues.
I counsel you, dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal and uncivilized Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile "protests."
Those of you who do not like the values of the West - see the 1st Amendment - you are free to leave. I hope for God's sake that those of you choose that option. Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.
I. S. Wichman
Professor of Mechanical Engineering"
As you can imagine, the Muslim group at the university didn't like this too well. They're demanding that Wichman be reprimanded and mandatory diversity training for faculty and a seminar on hate and discrimination for freshman. Now the chapter of CAIR has jumped into the fray. CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, apparently doesn't believe that the good professor had the right to express his opinion.
For its part, the university is standing its ground, saying the e-mail was private, and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks.
Send this to your friends, and ask them to do the same. Tell them to keep passing it around until the whole country gets it. We are in a war.
"We either start to publicly express ourselves or this political correctness crap is killing us."
