Lou’s passing

Lou’s passing May 14, 2008

Louis Cantori has returned to his Maker. Lou was a friend, a brilliant scholar of international affairs, and a courageous and outspoken voice of dialogue between America and the Muslim world. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon. May Allah bless him and his family. Lou was a truly unique individual and an inspiration. And he had a wonderful sense of humor and an infectious, booming laugh that I will miss.

Here’s a tribute on his university website, though it doesn’t capture what a courageous critic he, a proud US Marine, was of jingoism and injustice in American foreign policy. Insights: Passing of Louis Cantori, Professor Emeritus of Political Science

A blog has also been set up in his memory. It has information on the funeral to be held in early June in Maryland. Love, Laughter and Lou.
