A Misguided Petition Campaign to Ban the Muslim Students Association
by David Horowitz
An ally in the struggle against Islamo-fascism has launched a misguided campaign to combat the malign influence of the Muslim Student Association on campus. The campaign calls for the banning of the Muslim Students Association. Earlier today I posted this blog calling on Brigitte Gabriel to withdraw her organization's petition to ban the Muslim Students Association. I explain why below. However, since posting this blog, I received an email from Brigitte telling me that she did not support this campaign even though one of the 501 organizations in Act for America is responsible for it. I called Brigitte and she explained that her 501 chapters have autonomy and can act independently. She has told the chapter responsible for this campaign to cease and desist, and to remove the petition from their website. I am greatly relieved to have spoken to Brigitte and would have done so first except that I was alerted to this matter by an unusually fair-minded leftist who was preparing to attack me as result of the interview Frontpage did with the chapter head responsible for the petition (we have removed the interview as well so as not to perpetuate confusion).
