Mob Rule Continues on College Campuses

The hysteria that met David Horowitz and various campus speakers as part of last week's Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week was, unfortunately, all too common. College campuses, far from being a setting for the free exchange of ideas once imagined, have now been overtaken by leftist and Islamist student (and otherwise) groups bent on silencing all viewpoints that don't match their own. Hiding under the banner of moral superiority, these group's have adopted the fascistic tactics of Brown Shirts.

While much has been written at Frontpage Magazine and, to a lesser extent, college publications about last week's disruptions, the mainstream media continues to ignore the elephant in the room. And college administrators and parents are, largely, doing the same.

As long as this state of affairs, which I dubbed "mob rule on college campuses" in a column and follow-up blog post last year, is allowed to continue, expect it to get worse. It seems we have ceded the day to the bullies.

I'm actually a little more upbeat about the results of Islamofascism Awareness Week. What I haped to see was greater exposure of the problems that are plaquing our college campuses, and I think that was well accomplished. The more we push the issue, the louder the islamo-left will howl, and the nore hysterical and unreasonable they will appear. This was an opening shot of a much larger battle. It's true impact will be dependant on how well we follow up.

Muslims Against Sharia congratulate David Horowitz FREEDOM CENTER and Mike Adams, Tammy Bruce, Phyllis Chesler, Ann Coulter, Nonie Darwish, Greg Davis, Stephen Gale, David Horowitz, Joe Kaufman, Michael Ledeen, Michael Medved, Alan Nathan, Cyrus Nowrasteh, Daphne Patai, Daniel Pipes, Dennis Prager, Luana Saghieh, Rick Santorum, Jonathan Schanzer, Christina Sommers, Robert Spencer, Brian Sussman, Ed Turzanski, Ibn Warraq and other speakers on the success of the Islamofascism Awareness Week.

Islamofascism (or Islamism) is the main threat facing modern civilization and ignorance about this threat is astounding. We hope that this event becomes regular and reaches every campus.

A great many Westerners do not see the clear distinction between Islam and Islamism (Islamofascism). They need to understand that the difference between Islam and Islamism (Islamofascism) is the same as the difference between Christianity and Christian Identity Movement (White Supremacy Movement).
