It’s October, and the leaves are beginning to turn around
the campus of the Ohio State University. But as predictably as falling leaves
turn the green grass of the Oval brown, Islamofascism flowers into full bloom
on the Ohio State campus just in time for the third Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week.
And this time, Ohio
State students are
footing the bill.
The event in question is a Ramadan celebration hosted by the
newly-formed OSU chapter of the Muslim
American Society (MAS) – paid for out of Student Activity Fund fees. The OSU-MAS
on Ramadan” event promised to “provide a chance for students to celebrate
and reflect on the month of Ramadan and how it's celebrated among students
locally and internationally”.
What the Ohio State Union website failed to mention,
however, is that federal prosecutors stated in an appeals
court brief last December that MAS was “founded as the overt arm of the
Muslim Brotherhood in America”.
The prosecutors also observed that the Muslim
Brotherhood’s credo states that:
The Chicago Tribune
published an extensive investigative
report in September 2004 documenting MAS’s origins and leadership from the
international Muslim Brotherhood network.
Allah is our goal
The Qur'an is our
The Prophet is our
Jihad is our way
and death in the path
of Allah is our highest goal
As the active arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been
the ideological incubator for virtually every single Islamic terrorist
organization, from HAMAS to Al-Qaeda, MAS has boldly followed in the footsteps
of its parent.
Take, for example, how MAS President Esam Omeish was forced to resign
from the Virginia Commission on Immigration after video emerged of Omeish
calling for jihad at a December 2000 rally. Also consider the video of MAS
Freedom Foundation head Mahdi Bray cheering as now-convicted terrorist leader and
Al-Qaeda fundraiser Abdirahman Alamoudi led a crowd in cheering
the HAMAS and Hezbollah terrorist organizations.
This is hardly the first appearance of university-funded
Islamofascism at Ohio
State. In fact, during
the first Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week last October, the OSU chapters of the Muslim
Student Association (MSA) and Council
on American-Islamic Relations co-hosted prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader
and wife-beating advocate, Jamal Badawi, as I reported
here at FrontPage. That event was
sponsored by the Ohio
In fact, Islamofascism has a long history at Ohio State:
three months after the 9/11 attacks in December 2001, the Associated
Press reported that the
OSU-MSA was under federal investigation for its MSA
News email list that regularly published news releases by a whole host
of Islamic terrorist organizations, including Al-Qaeda; was the primary
source for Osama bin Laden’s published statements; and also for
encouraging readers to purchase videos from a terrorist support website.
October 2002, now-convicted Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami
Al-Arian appeared on campus and at an OSU-MSA rally.
November 2003, Ohio
State hosted the Third
National Conference on Palestinian Solidarity, at which Al-Arian was
supposed to appear, but couldn’t attend since he had been indicted on
terrorism charges and was sitting in federal prison.
February 2006, at the same time that federal agents were raiding its
offices and the US Treasury Department was freezing its assets, Islamic
terror charity Kindhearts
co-sponsored a weeklong Islamic “Leaders of Tomorrow” conference at Ohio State for the OSU-MSA.
- And as
here at FrontPage this past
May, international hate-sheikh Khalid
Yasin made an evening
appearance at Ohio
State on his weeklong
tour through the Columbus
area, spreading his virulent brand of Islamic hatred.
Now, the financial support by Ohio State
students of day-long Muslim Brotherhood Ramadan events can be added to the
Happy Islamo-Fascism Awareness
