Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week

Azadeh Ensha has new article on her blog at the Huffington Post about Iran as the new poster child for Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. In case you haven't heard of this yet, David Horowitz writes about it in Front Page magazine. Beginning on October 22, student groups across the nation will hold events on their campuses including speeches by Michael Ledeen, Rick Santorum, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter as well as Horowitz himself. What a line-up of Iran experts!

I like what Azadeh has to say about it:
"The official poster of Islamo-Fascism week shows a photo of a teenage girl being stoned to death in Iran (disclosure: my country of birth) and will also feature speeches from Iranians who were victims of persecution. As an Iranian-American, I appreciate that they're spreading the word about human rights abuses in my native country. Unfortunately, I think their goal has less to do with spreading awareness than it does with fostering fear, suspicion and bigotry."
