Johns Hopkins University Muslim Association By: FrontPage Magazine
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, May 01, 2008


Over a four-week span, Frontpage will publish profiles of individual chapters of the Muslim Students Association and Muslim Student Union on a variety of campuses around the country, showing how they work to advance the cause of radical Islam and to lead the effort to stigmatize Israel. These profiles are compiled in our new booklet, "The Muslim Students Association and the Jihad Network."

Each year, the Johns Hopkins Muslim Association sponsors what it terms “Islam Awareness Days,” whose purpose is “to promote diversity and dispel misconceptions about Islam.”123

In February 2005, the event featured a presentation by then-National MSA President Hadia Mubarak titled “Liberation and Incarceration? Women in Islam.” Mubarak, a graduate student in Women’s and Gender Studies at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, claimed that Americans had developed many misconceptions about the treatment of women in the Islamic world. Islam, she said, historically had a reputation for respecting women’s rights and granting them equal status in the eyes of the law.144

The Johns Hopkins Muslim Association maintains close ties to Dr. Ashraf Ismail, an instructor with the AlMaghrib Institute, which offers seminars on Islamic topics in fourteen U.S. and Canadian cities. In July 2006 Ismail wrote that Hamas and Hezbollah were not terrorist organizations, but agents of “grassroots rebellions.”125

In November 2007, the Johns Hopkins University Muslim Association and Jimmy Carter’s Habitat for Humanity (HFH) collaborated on an event to counter Islamo- Fascism Awareness Week which they called “Healing a Fractured World.”126 The event depicted Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, whose theme was “the oppression of women in Islam,” as an exercise in anti-Muslim bigotry.
