Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week II (April 7-11, 2008)

From the National Committee to Defend Dissent and Critical Thinking in Academia:

Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week II (April 7-11, 2008)
Their slogan this time is “Stop the Genocide.” Here is
the intro to their new student guide – the full thing
can be downloaded here.

We will of course be having a lot more to say soon
about the latest round of this dangerous campaign to
turn universities into sites of indoctrination:

From October 22 to October 26, 2007, students on more
than 100 campuses across the country hosted speakers,
put on panels, conducted sit-ins and showed
documentary films designed to alert campus communities
to the global threat from Islamo-Fascism, and to
protest the oppression of women in Islam. This spring,
during the week of April 7-11, we will hold another
week of consciousness-raising events. The purpose of
this week and the campaign leading up to it will be:
1) To highlight the genocidal agendas of the
Islamo-fascist crusade; and 2) To make the public
aware of the “soft jihad” – the domestic networks that
fund and provide political support for the agendas of
the jihad, including its armies of terror.

The core of the jihad is its intention to conquer and
force into submission all religions and cultures which
are not its own. It has absorbed the Nazi-virus of
Jew-hatred and seeks as its first goal the
obliteration of the Jewish state, but its agendas
include the obliteration of Christian communities and
all non-Muslim cultures as well.

The focus of our spring campaign will be the
Declaration Against Genocide, which we will ask campus
groups to sign. Specifically we are asking all campus
groups to repudiate the genocidal passage within
Islam’s sacred texts which reads: “The prophet, prayer
and peace be upon him, said: ‘The time [of judgment
and resurrection] will not come until Muslims will
fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide
behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim!
There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill
him!’” (Sahih Muslim book 41, no. 6985)

Christians have distanced themselves from far less
ominous passages in their religious tradition because
of the terrible consequences that have flowed from
misguided beliefs.

The terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah are Islamic
parties who have dedicated themselves to the
destruction of the Jews. We are asking campus groups
to condemn Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist
organizations and to repudiate their Jew-hatred,
including the Hamas charter which says: “Israel will
exist and will continue to exist until Islam will
obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before
it.” Signers of the Declaration will also be asked to
condemn and repudiate the Iranian dictator Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad who has said “The accomplishment of a
world without America and Israel is both possible and

These are hateful doctrines that threaten the lives
not only of Jews, but of Christians and secularists as
well. While Israel is condemned as “the Little Satan,”
America is targeted as “the Great Satan” – the
incarnation of evil. The genocidal hatred of
Islamo-fascists is aimed at all Americans.

We are therefore launching a “Stop the Genocide”
campaign which will be the focus of our activities
this spring and the theme of Islamo-Fascism Awareness
Week on April 7-11. During this campaign, we will be
calling on campus groups to affirm the equal dignity
of all men and women and the right of all people to
live free from violence, intimidation, and coercion.

To carry out the campaign of education and awareness,
we will:

Gather signatures for the Declaration Against
Genocide. Ask campus groups to officially support it.
Host speakers on the topic of Islamo-Fascism and its
genocidal agendas
Show documentaries and feature films including Islam
versus Islam, Suicide Killers, Obsession and Path to
Hold memorials for the thousands of victims of Islamic
radicals before and after 9/11
Distribute informational literature including the two
pamphlets “Islamo-Fascism On Campus” and “Plan for
As the first Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week
demonstrated, in the present campus climate this
program is bound be controversial. A coalition of
groups with ties to the Islamo-fascist jihad are
likely to protest this educational effort. This spring
Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week will again test
universities’ claims to be politically open and
intellectually diverse. Once again our goal will be to
refute the curriculum of the left, which teaches that
America is the enemy in the war on terror and the
terrorists are “freedom fighters,” and that any
attempt to alert Americans to the dangers they face is
“Islamo-phobia.” Once again our task will be to remind
people that America is the only force in the world
that has the power and the will to confront the threat
of a global Islamo-Fascist state.

We expect that some universities will create
impediments to the planned protests and events, refuse
necessary permits or room reservations, and otherwise
demonstrate their hypocrisy by failing to allow
patriotic students a voice on campus. We hope to be
proven wrong, but past experience counsels otherwise.
