A Project of the Council on American-Islamic Relations

David Horowitz

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that tracks hate movements in the United States, labels Horowitz “the godfather of the modern anti-Muslim movement.”

Introduction

David Horowitz is the founder and chief executive offier of the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that tracks hate movements in the United States, labels Horowitz “the godfather of the modern anti-Muslim movement.”

In the Right-Wing Playbook on Anti-Muslim Extremism, People for the American Way notes, “One of the main purveyors of the charge that progressives are secretly supporting terrorism is David Horowitz, who claims that there ‘are only a couple of degrees of separation between anybody on the left and the terrorists – and that includes people in the Democratic Party.’ In Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the Radical Left, Horowitz said that both Muslims and progressives abhor America and American values.”

In Fear, Inc., the Center for American Progress lists Horowitz among the “leading lights of the Islamophobia network.” The report’s authors note, “Horowitz has gone even further than his conspiracy-minded colleagues by alleging that Islamic extremism has infiltrated our education system, beginning in kindergarten.” Both Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch and the conspiracy-laden FrontPage Magazine are projects of Horowitz’s Freedom Center.
