Dr. Lancaster:

Tariq Ramadan is the grandson of Hassan Al-Bana, a founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. Ramadan's father immigrated to Switzerland to carry on his father-in-law's work as the government of Egypt started cracking down on the MB. Ramadan's first cousin was the suicide bomber who was responsible for the murder of 120 Shia Iraqis at Hilla as they stood in line waiting to enter a medical clinic. He is persona non grata in a number of countries including Italy, France and the US. How he manages to find the support he does for his supposedly moderate views -- ie. his call for a moratorium on stoning people to death -- strains credulity. But it seems we live in credulous times.
