Starting this Friday, Duke University plans to have a regular Muslim call to prayer on campus by a member of the Muslim Brotherhood front group MSA (Muslim Students Association). Most students support religious diversity, but critics are concerned by the Islamic terrorism it symbolizes.
CS Monitor (h/t burqasrugly) As of Friday, residents of Durham, N.C., near the Duke University Chapel bell tower will now hear the tones of a male Muslim Students Association MSA (MSA is part of the designated terrorist group, Muslim Brotherhood, which is banned in Egypt and the UAE) member chanting the Muslim “adhan” or “call to prayer” at 1 p.m. each week.
“On campus among students and faculty the response has been overwhelmingly positive,“ says Duke spokesman Keith Lawrence in a phone interview. “Those responding from the outside, particularly on social media like Twitter, have been mixed with some negativity that has begun to feed off of itself,” Mr. Lawrence adds.

The ear-shattering chant, which announces the start of the group’s jummah prayer service, which takes place in the chapel basement each Friday at 1 p.m., lasts about three minutes and will be moderately amplified, according to a Duke University press release.
Somebody, please destroy the Duke loud speakers. Even dogs can’t stand the mind-numbingly offensive sound of Muslim Call to Prayer.
