Not All Fears Are Phobias

FrontPage Magazine 2 November 2011

The Freedom Center placed an ad, Not All Fears Are Phobias, in the UCLA Daily Bruin, which appeared on October 13, 2011.

The resolution specifically sought to ban criticism of Islamic misogyny, Jew-hatred and terror, and specifically named David Horowitz as guilty of Islamaphobia. The Freedom Center responded with our ad (seen above and here) and caused something of a firestorm.  It was followed by a response, printed in the Bruin, of the campus J Street organization, which joined hands with the Muslim Student Association to attack our ad.
