from The Daily Caller:

"Back in 2009, Obama declared that Americans owe a debt to al-Azhar.

"'It was Islam at places like al-Azhar that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe’s Renaissance and Enlightenment,' he claimed.

"'For over a thousand years, al-Azhar has stood as a beacon of Islamic learning,' Obama said in the second sentence of his much-lauded 2009 speech.

"Now, however, al-Azhar’s 'role in the government of Egypt and its administration of Shariah spells the end of any remaining freedom in Egyptian society,' said Robert Spencer, an expert on Islam who predicted in 2009 that Egypt’s voters would elect Islamic fundamentalists.'"

The "beacon of Islamic learning" is an oxymoron.
