Richard W. Schneider, the President of Norwich University, the nation's oldest military academy, which is based in Northfield, Vermont, says he has no problem with Sana Hamze attending his institution while wearing her hijab (Islamic head covering). He stated to a reporter, "Change and culture does take time but I don't see any problem with this at all." But does he see a problem with the fact that Hamze, the daughter of CAIR Islamist leader Nezar Hamze, attends and participates in events run by designated terrorist groups, even while in uniform?
Hamze has been surrounded and indoctrinated by individuals and groups associated with terrorism for a large part of her life. Her father, Nezar, is the Regional Operations Director and former Executive Director for the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
