According to its website, the Muslim Pubic Affairs Council (MPAC), a group associated with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, has released a guide for student and community groups in response to the campaign entitled “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week”, sponsored by the editor of the conservative publication known Frontpage and scheduled for October 22-26:
The Muslim Public Affairs Council today released a guide for Muslim student and community groups in response to an upcoming series of highly controversial and provocative events on college campuses organized by extreme right wing activist David Horowitz under the banner of “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” (IFAW), Horowitz’s Freedom Center is organizing speaking engagements at colleges and universities for the likes of Ann Coulter, Daniel Pipes, Dennis Prager, Sean Hannity, Robert Spencer, Rick Santorium and Wafa Sultan. Organizers are billing the event as the “biggest conservative campus protest ever.” To date, IFAW events have been canceled at a handful of universities, where administrators and student groups called the event divisive and hateful. MPAC’s guide, entitled “What You Need to Know About Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week”, includes information about the forces behind IFAW as well as a set of recommendations for Muslim student groups encouraging self-restraint in the face of outside agitators.
Although MPAC is sometimes viewed as a moderate organization and often acts in partnership with the U.S. government, the organization acts in concert with and in coalitions of the U.S Muslim Brotherhood.
