Author Derided by Muslim Students in Anti Semitic Cartoon
Author David Horowitz responded today to his recent controversy at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. David Horowitz, a popular conservative writer, was derided in a Nazi-like anti-Semitic cartoon, put out by the Muslim Student Association.
The cartoon, which was copied and spread around campus, portrays Horowitz, a Jewish man, as a hooked-nose Nazi hiding in a trash can. The cartoon is a direct reference to similar anti-Semitic cartoons circulated in Germany right around the time of the Holocaust. In the crude cartoon, Horowitz has an armband with the letter “H,” a direct and tasteless reference to the yellow armbands Jews were forced to wear in the Holocaust, with a Star of David, denoting themselves as Jews. Horowitz has been outspoken on Islamic fascism and was set to speak about it. The cartoon also includes the phrase, “Horowitz Awareness Week.”
More than ten students were removed from the hall in which he gave his lecture, and metal detectors were set up in the entrance.
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has yet to put out a statement condemning the obviously anti-Semitic cartoon. This may become a bigger issue, as the Muslim Student Association is a campus organization, funded by students of the university and the university itself. The Muslim Student Association, which made the cartoon, has yet to make any public statements or apologies. The Muslim Students’ Association has its campus headquarters located inside the Student Union, with its own office. While walking in the Student Union, Horowitz discovered the crude cartoon.
The Muslim Students’ Association is a part of the Muslim Brotherhood. The flier also stated support for jihad.
Horowitz said that 2,000 fliers, advertising his speaking engagement, were torn down by members of the MSA.
Horowitz wrote an article about this event, at Frontpagemagazine.com, titled “My Encounter with the Enemy in Milwaukee.” http://tothecenter.com/news.php?readmore=4895
