From an email received this morning:
The David Horowitz Freedom Center announced that it will distribute a Declaration Against Genocide and ask individuals and groups, particularly those on American college campuses, to sign it. The Declaration notes that the Sudanese and other Africans have been victims of a slow motion genocide, and that Islamo fascists in the Middle East are preparing a new genocide against the Jews and can be found here.
In describing the objectives of this new initiative, David Horowitz, President of the Freedom Center, said: â€œWe are asking all campus groups to repudiate the genocidal passage in the Islamic Hadith which reads: â€œThe prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: â€˜The time [of judgment] 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!â€™â€
Horowitz continued: â€œWe are also asking all campus groups, including the Muslim Students Association, to condemn 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.â€™ Signers of the Declaration will also be asked to repudiate the Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has said `The accomplishment of a world without America and Israel is both possible and feasible.â€™ And Hezbollahâ€™s leader Hassan Nasrallah, who called the Jews `a cancer which is liable to spread again at any moment,â€™ and has said, â€œIf the Jews `all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.â€™ These are hateful doctrines that threaten the lives not only of Jews, but of all Americans.â€
In addition to condemning the genocidal agenda of these leaders and organizations, the Declaration calls on campus groups to affirm â€œthe freedom of the individual conscience and the right to change religions or have no religion at all; the equal dignity of men and women; and the right of all people to live free from violence, intimidation and coercion.â€
â€œAlthough a Declaration Against Genocide should be seen as a document with universal appeal,â€ Horowitz notes, â€œa coalition of groups with ties to the Islamo-fascist jihad are bound to protest this effort. Our goal is to test universitiesâ€™ claims that they support religious and ethnic tolerance, and to challenge the campus left, which consistently overlooks statements by Islamic radicals which are nothing less than an invitation to mass murder.â€
Looking to see what the reaction will be on the University of Colorado and other campuses in our state.
