Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week

An Urgent MessageFrom the Desk of David Horowitz

Dear Newsmax Member,

Even before our Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week began, we were being attacked by radical leftists with a fake flyer at George Washington University- a deceitful hoax that was revealed in the Washington Post and on Fox News.

And now during the week we're seeing our opponents mount new attacks, threats and intimidation daily. They want to kill this event because they knew know that awareness about Islamo Fascism means the end of their homicidal enterprise. I'm asking for your help to keep them from succeeding.

For Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week we've organized events on well over 100 campuses across the country. Our campus coordinators - brave young men and women willing to go up against the radical left to get the truth to their fellow students - are working night and day against incredible odds to make the Week a success.

Our goal is to give our enemy the name it deserves- Islamo Fascism; to lay bare the unholy alliance between American leftists and our enemies in the war on terror; and to create a national movement that will call it what it is and stand up to it.

We've had dramatic results so far. At Tulane University on Monday, some 1,500 people turned out to hear Ann Coulter. It took 15 police officers and Ann's personal security to keep the crowd at bay.

Robert Spencer faced a rowdy crowd at De Paul, courageous Arab-American intellectual Nonie Darwish was confronted by a militant communist group at UC Berkeley. At the University of Wisconsin-Madison I shocked even the protesters with a large poster of a Muslim woman on her knees being shot in the back of the head for some real or imagined insult to fundamentalism.

But the most hostile crowd so far was at my Emory University appearance last night, where protesters became so disruptive that the police were called in to escort me off the stage only a half hour into my speech.

Unless the left succeeds in silencing us, Islamo Fascism Awareness Week will be the largest demonstration ever staged by conservatives on American college campuses. By the end of the week, over 30 speakers such as Coulter, Spencer and former Sen. Rick Santorum will have appeared on campuses across the country- from UC Berkeley to Columbia; from Emory to Penn State.

But the opposition is building, both in its intensity and its potential for violence. (I have been forced to provide bodyguards for all our speakers and the campus police have been on high alert at every school where they have appeared).

The entire political left, from the Revolutionary Communist Party to the Young Democrats, is up in arms against us. Campus Progress, a part of the George Soros-Hillary Clinton operation, has put up a "kit" for attacking Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. The violent extreme left is thus urged on with a wink and a nod by the "moderate" left.

They are joined by the whole array of Muslim groups: CAIR, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Students Association and the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Council - groups who claim to oppose Muslim terrorism, but when the opportunity arises to join us in exposing it, find themselves on the side that defends jihad rather than on the side that defends Muslim women, homosexuals and "infidels" from the homicidal violence of Islamo fascists.

In the process of organizing Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week we have discovered hundreds of courageous students who organized the events on their campuses in the face of constant attacks not only by fellow students but by professors and administrators who control their academic future. We are working with a new generation of conservative young people who will actually believe the War on Terror is worth fighting and their country worth defending, despite the left’s best efforts to intimidate them.

I write you now to ask you to support these brave students and the new, pro-American and anti-jihad movement they are creating. I write also to ask you to help me keep Islamo Fascism Awareness Week from being derailed by the left’s violence and intimidation.

This must be a permanent campaign - to help these young people continue the awareness campaign . . . to organize on more campuses... to make sure that the left does not silence what some are already calling one of the most important public information campaigns of our era- to publicize the message about Islamo Fascism beyond the campuses, to the American people at large. Follow this link to make a secure, online donation today.

No contribution you’ve ever given before will have such a dramatic effect as what you give now. Every dollar you pledge will help us to keep building awareness about the Islamo fascists who wish us dead and our country crippled. This is our chance to strike back at them and to build a movement that will deny them an intellectual haven on America's college campuses.

Finally, we are waking up Americans to the real nature and seriousness of the threat against us. We must continue to build on our success, and we can't do it without your help. Please give whatever you can afford today.

My Sincere Thanks,

David Horowitz President & Founder

P.S. Our speakers are under even more threat than we anticipated. In addition to the funds we need to continue the campaign, we need your immediate financial help to hire additional security for the ongoing events of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. I will be hugely grateful for anything you can give. It is important the people threatening those who speak out against Islamo-Fascism are sent the message that we will not be stopped!
