Using Racism to Sell War: The West vs Islam?

Filed under: ISO Events — Barnard-Columbia ISO @ 11:55 am

In the summer of 2006 Bush declared that “Islamic Fascism” is the biggest threat facing the U.S. today. In October this year, David Horowitz will tour campuses with his “Islamofascism Awareness Week”. From the hysteria surrounding Ahmadinejad’s NYC visit to a spike in horrific hate crimes, the vilification of Arabs and Muslims is on the rise. Islamophobia provides a justification for the U.S.’ ongoing wars and must be opposed at every chance. Come be a part of a discussion about the roots of this racist “clash of civilizations” theory and what we can do to challenge it.
