Last week, Islamic Apartheid Week was announced at Temple University in Philadelphia. A singular brave student organization at Temple wanted to counter the blood libel and propaganda of Israeli Apartheid Week, which is so common and so awful on college campuses, with the reality of the Shariah and the oppression, subjugation and persecution of women and non-Muslims living under Islam.
No sooner was it announced than the Islamic smear machine went into high gear. Numerous articles appeared in the Philadelphia City Paper, Naked City and elsewhere, smearing and defaming the speakers (Robert Spencer, Nonie Darwish, Simon Deng and me), but most egregiously me. Hamas-CAIR sent out a string of email alerts in support of the Occupy Muslim student groups' protests.
The Blaze ran a big story on the pro-Shariah media blitz. The Blaze noted that the leftists and Islamic supremacists were pulling out all the stops: "Occupy Temple is joining with the International Socialist Organization, Students for Justice in Palestine and the Party for Socialism and Liberation for a 'multi-racial fightback against these racist hatemongers.' 'Geller is known to her fans and critics alike as "Queen of the Muslim Bashers,"' the Facebook hate page for the protest states. 'Her views are by no means within the boundaries of reasonable debate.'"
