On page 33 of "The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America," you'll find UK Professor Ihsan Bagby listed as one of the most dangerous professors in the country.

"I found it to be comical. For to think of myself as being dangerous is ludicrous," said Bagby

What Bagby also says is ludicrous is that in the two page excerpt on him, Horowitz not once mentions anything about Bagby inside the classroom.

Instead, Horowitz concentrates on Bagby's associations outside the classroom.

"I am associated with some people that are active in trying to push the Muslim community becoming involved in America."

Bagby admits he has a relationship with Siraj Wahhaj, the leader of the Muslim Alliance of North America.

"He is one of the most well known Muslim leaders in our country."

"In fact, Siraj condemed the first World Trade Center bombing, Osama Bin Ladin, and the second World Trade Center bombing."

Bagby says he doesn't force his views on his students, and that he wants his students to be critical thinkers.

He says outside the classroom, his mission is for Muslims to be accepted in our society and contribute to our nation.

Professor Bagby also mentioned that it's books like this one which stereotype muslims. He says the majority of Muslims in the United States want to be a part of America.
