BEFORE YOU READ THE ARTICLE FROM C.S.U., HERE IS AN F.Y.I.:
M.S.A. = MUSLIM STUDENTS ASSOCIATION = FRONT GROUP OF MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD (ALONG WITH C.A.I.R.)
The Muslim Students Association and the Jihad Network
By FrontPage Magazine
The following essay, adapted from the Introduction to this booklet, shows how, as early as the 1980s, operatives from the Muslim Brotherhood, parent group for al Qaeda and Hamas, formulated a blueprint for a "jihadist process" that would ultimately sabotage the "miserable house" of the United States. These Muslim Brotherhood operatives saw that the work of undermining the U.S. could be best accomplished by the use of front groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Students Association. But while CAIR was designed to work in the legal-cultural realm, posturing as another of the minority rights groups functioning in the public square, the MSA's role was to be restricted to college campuses, where it would advance the cause of radical Islam and lead the effort to stigmatize Israel.
Over the next several days, Front Page will publish profiles of individual chapters of the MSA on a variety of campuses around the country, showing how specifically they achieve the broad goals of the organization.

MSA dispels Islamic stereotypes
by Kayla Huddleston
The Muslim Student Association set up an information table in the Lory Student Center Tuesday to give students a forum to ask questions about the female Islamic experience, which MSA leaders say is largely misrepresented in the media.
the public doesn't understand Islamic women and "don't go deeper into the circumstances of where she is living or the culture she's living in," Mateen said. "The truth is women are encouraged to earn and own their own property."
The MSA conducted surveys to learn about stereotypes and beliefs the CSU community has on the war and the Muslim faith.
"[We want] to learn what people think about our religion, what they are confused or fearful about are the stereotypes and common misconceptions people harbor," said Zaki Safar, the president of MSA. "[We want] to use it to dispel any stereotypes and combat misconceptions."
Final efforts this semester include a free showing of the animated movie "Muhammad," which will take place in the LSC Theater on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
The film is being shown in response to the Dutch movie "Fitna", a film portraying Islam in a negative light when it was shown in Holland theatres.
"It goes to paint a false picture of the Islamic faith," Safar said. "The movie is supposed to cover the correct image about Prophet Muhammad."
Through the booths and the film, Safar and the MSA hope to encourage diversity at CSU and in the Fort Collins community.
"We have been trying to demolish barriers people create between themselves and what they lack knowledge about," Safar said.
The movie FITNA was NOT SHOWN IN THEATRRS because DHIMMIS AROUND THE WORLD, WERE TO SCARED THEY MAY BE BEHEADED...
