DURING THE WEEK of October 13-17, students on more than 100 campuses will hold events under the banner of "Stop the Jihad on Campus," a campaign designed to make the university community aware of the growing power of the Muslim Students Association (otherwise known as "MSA," pictured in the photo above speaking on a campus) and other campus groups that support the jihad against America, Israel and the West.
The objective of “Stop the Jihad on Campus” Week is to publicize the ties between the Muslim Student Association and the radical Islamist Muslim Brotherhood — godfather organization to al-Qaeda and Hamas — and to begin a movement to defund the MSA for misrepresenting its agendas and obstructing free speech on campuses.
One hundred Muslim Students Associations contacted by the Horowitz Freedom Center have refused to condemn the genocidal terror groups Hamas and Hizbullah, and have declined to repudiate the infamous Hadith which calls on Muslims to kill Jews to bring about the Day of Judgment.
The call to withdraw recognition and funds from the Muslim Student Association is not an attempt to suppress speech, even hate speech. The MSA has a First Amendment Right to spread lies about Israel and the Jews, to express hatred of gays and contempt for women (on the other hand, the University does not have an obligation to support such hatred). The Freedom Center’s call to defund the MSA is based on their deception about the nature of their organization and their attempts to obstruct speakers they disagree with who are invited to campus.
The MSA national headquarters recently sent the radical imam Sheikh Khalid Yasin on a speaking tour to Penn State, Ohio State, Minnesota State, the University of Minnesota and St. Clould University with the help of student funds. Sheik Yasin claims the U.S. government was behind 9/11, that homosexuals should be put to death, that AIDS was invented in U.S. government laboratories; and that Jews are “filth” deserving of death.
In securing funds for hate speakers such as Khalid Yasin, the MSA has misrepresented itself as a religious and cultural organization subscribing to the general multicultural idea of harmony and mutual respect.
“The MSA has surrounded its misogyny and homophobia and hatred of Israel and America with a certain ambiguity. But by sponsoring supporters of terrorist organizations such as Hamas and refusing to condemn or even distance itself from such organizations, it reveals its solidarity with them,” says Freedom Center President David Horowitz. Horowitz notes that “Hamas and Hizbollah make no bones about their determination to kill the Jews, but I have personally and publicly confronted MSA leaders who will not condemn their vile deeds and poisonous agendas. Not a single MSA leader — not one — has stepped forward to declare clear and unambiguous condemnation of two of the most violent and genocidal terrorist organizations in the world."
Much is tolerated on campus today because of the contemporary university’s conception of itself as a free marketplace of ideas. But there is no official tolerance for hatred of African Americans or for hatred of women and gays, unless it is expressed by radical Muslim speakers such as Sheik Yasin.
The MSA takes advantage of the current emphasis of multiculturalism and diversity on campus to posture as a religious or cultural organization whose “traditions” must be respected. But Horowitz charges, “This group has nothing in common with Hillel, the Newman Club, or other such groups. It may hide its agenda by posturing as a religious and cultural organization, but it is a hardcore political organization committed to the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood and the radical Islamic jihad.”
Muslim Students Association chapters at universities around the country receive heavy funding from student governments based on the fiction that they are merely one of many “diversity” groups on campus. “The MSA is in fact an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, which has created a network of front groups to conduct a stealth jihad in America. This network includes CAIR, the Muslim American Society and the Islamic Society of North America,” David Horowitz points out.
The Muslim Student Association’s relationship to the Muslim Brotherhood was revealed as a result of documents seized by the FBI in 2007 as part of the government case against the subversive Holy Land Foundation. In these documents a Muslim Brotherhood operative makes clear the organization’s chief objective: “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within…” He makes clear too that this objective will be achieved by the “stable organizations that are connected with our Movement and which fly in our orbit.” Chief among the organizations he named as advancing this cause in America was the Muslim Student Association, which the Brotherhood had helped create in the U.S. years earlier.
Stop the Jihad on Campus Week will reveal these connections and show that giving university money to this organization violates every community standard the universities themselves have set, and in the long run is suicidal.
