Stonewall Jackson is rolling over in his grave.
Next month his beloved Virginia Military Institute will be convening a celebration commemorating the 1300th anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Spain under the Muslim warlord Tariq ibn Ziyad in 711 A.D. The March 23-25 celebration entitled "711-2011: East Meets West" and organized by VMI's Center for Leadership and Ethics, is scheduled to feature standard Muslim apologists Reza Aslan and Akbar Ahmed. VMI Superintendent Gen. J.H. Binford Peay has even filmed an invitation to the celebration.
No word if VMI's World War II commemoration will be entitled "Germany meets Poland, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Belgium, France, Norway, The Netherlands and Russia".
