A few day ago, a lot of US university campuses held what is being called as the Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. Their whole objective seemed to be to highlight the illegal and non-Islamic actions of those few that purport to be waving the banner of Islam.
Unfortunately, such events, as we all know and recognize are based on nothing but ignorance and fueled by the voices of the right-wing media, especially talk shows. Instead of holding such events that fan more hatred and mislead the uneducated, a forum garnered to promote education and understanding would bring more awareness to the masses. However, when overtaken by one-sided opinions, people rarely listen to the voices of reason – no matter how “college educated” they may be.
