Ohio State Does Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week Right

By Patrick PooleFrontPageMagazine.com Tuesday, November 20, 2007

As an alumnus of The Ohio State University (B.A. Political Science, ’95), I take great pride my alma mater, though not just for the globally renowned academics, nor the world-class facilities, or even the unparalleled pageantry that is Buckeye football (especially following a win against Michigan). Instead, I take great satisfaction in being associated with an educational institution whose faculty, staff, students and supporters regularly display unmatched ingenuity.

Take, for example, how two Ohio State student organizations, the respective campus chapters of both the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Student Association (MSA), decided to participate in the recent Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week in a very unique way. Not content to bring just critics of Islamofascism to campus to warn of seemingly distant dangers, such as David Horowitz, Daniel Pipes or Robert Spencer, these two student groups actually hosted at our fine university one of the prime examples of homo islamofasciae in North America, Dr. Jamal Badawi.

  1. According to the Star Tribune (follow the link in the post), Badawi says "a careful reading of the Qur'an leaves no doubt" that "Islam is a religion of peace and nonviolence."

    No doubt? So, it's crystal clear then. Islam really does mean peace.

    Phew, that's a relief! Here in the UK we can tell MI5 to stop monitoring the 2000 terrorist plotters, and the 5th failed 21/7 bomber - who has just been jailed to 33 years - can be set free.

    I wonder what the 9/11, 7/7, Madrid and Bali victims think of Badawi's statement?
