Stop the Jihad on Campus By: FrontPage Magazine
FrontPageMagazine.com | Friday, October 17, 2008



Students and faculty at 79 college campuses are hearing a clarion call to “Stop the Jihad on Campus,” thanks to the third annual Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, sponsored by this website’s sister organization, the Terrorism Awareness Project. This is an extraordinary turnout three weeks before a national election when most student activists are focused on the presidential campaigns.

 

The David Horowitz Freedom Center launched this national event three years ago to draw attention to the global threat posed by radical Islamic extremism, the ideology fueling worldwide jihad. As in years past, Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week (IFAW) is opposing this totalitarian effort to subject the world to Koranic law by hosting nationally recognized experts, screening well-received documentaries, and petitioning moderate Muslim students to turn their back on those who would tie their religion of peace to perpetual warfare.

 

This year’s campaign maintains the broad ideological theme of years past while featuring a more specific thrust: to make university community's aware of the support for the jihad on their campuses. To accomplish this we are distributing 10,000 copies of the film Obsession and holding a "Stop the Jihad Hour" for a simultaneous showing of the film on all 79 campuses. The Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada (MSA) and campus groups such as Students for Justice in Palestine play important roles in supporting the jihadist war against America, Israel, and the West. Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week is designed to confront the threat posed not only from aged parchments and Wahhabi preachers on distant shores but a radical fifth column within. Although this news is disconcerting, it also demonstrates that students and administrators are not helpless to fight against it: this year’s events call on campuses to defund the MSA.

 

The MSA receives student funding under false colors by misrepresenting itself as a religious group representing all Muslims. In fact, the MSA is a political group representing Muslisms who support the holy war against the United States and Israel. The MSA is just one ideological affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood, the ideological font of many jihadists worldwide. The Brotherhood’s radical approach to Islam is reflected in its motto: “Allah is our goal, the Koran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our way, and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.” Its founder, Hassan al-Banna, forged an alliance with Adolf Hitler during World War II, making it truly an Islamo-Fascist group. Its alumni include multiple terrorists involved in 9/11, not least Osama bin Laden himself. Osama had been mentored by Abdullah Azzam, a Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood preacher. Ayman al-Zawahiri had belonged to the Egyptian branch of the Broterhood, and 9/11 architect Khalid Shaikh Mohammed belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood, as well.

 

Irrefutable proof confirms the MSA is a pro-terror organization.

 
·  MSA members at UCLA raised money for Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists at their annual “Anti-Zionist Week.”

·  Speaker Muammad Faheed told an MSA meeting at Queensborough Community College in New York, “The only relationship you should have with America is to topple it!”

·  Nihad Awad addressed the 2003 Iowa Muslim Student Association Annual Conferences. Awad had told a college audience in 1994, “I am a supporter of the Hamas movement.”

·  The University of Southern California MSA invited Taliban ambassador Sayyid Hashimi to speak on campus six months before 9/11.

·  MSA at California State University Northridge held a fundraiser for Islamic Relief, an organization that received a $50,000 contribution from a front group run by Osama bin Laden.


With such a record, campus officials must explain why they should continue sending campus, student, and taxpayer dollars to the MSA under the pretense that it is a religious organization representing all Muslims.

 

The campaign also asks moderate Muslims to repudiate a violent interpretation of their religions sacred works. Across the nation, students involved in the IFAW will circulate the Petition for Hadith Reform. It asks its signatories to deny any implication that Jews must be destroyed as a people, and to affirm the equality of all people – both men and women.  

 

Events have already begun nationwide. IFAW sponsored three campus-wide events at as many colleges yesterday. A distinguished panel, including Wafa Sultan and Yaron Brook, discussed “Islamic Totalitarianism’s Threat to Civilization” at the University of California at Irvine, a dialogue co-sponsored by the Ayn Rand Institute. The films Obsession and Suicide Killers were screened at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Penn State, respectively.

 

This year’s distinguished speakers include David Horowitz, Islam expert Robert Spencer, pollster Dick Morris, Daniel Pipes, author and scholar Dr. Andrew Bostom, and Nonie Darwish. Middle East reporter Deborah Weiss is also scheduled to address Tufts University at a date to be determined.  

 

This is an opportunity for education to replace indoctrination and PC assurances that there is no problem at academic associations around the country. The lock exercised by such obscurantists as the Middle East Studies Association cannot censor this invasion of enemy-dominated territory. The third annual Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week is a chance to bypass the campus filter and speak directly to young people, and their administration, with a challenging call for patriotic change. Join us as we bring a second, sober voice to a campus debate that will affect our Homeland Security, our foreign policy, and our relationship with one-fifth of the world’s population.
