Totalitarian Islam's Threat to the West

The Ayn Rand Institute announces A panel discussion on the threat of Islamic totalitarianism and how to deal with it at UCLA Campus: Moore 100, Los Angeles, CA on Thursday, April 12, 2007, at 7:00 PM

A distinguished panel of Middle East experts (Dr. Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, Dr. Yaron Brook, president of the Ayn Rand Institute, and Dr. Wafa Sultan, outspoken critic of Islam and author of the forthcoming book "The Escaped Prisoner: When God Is a Monster") will provide new and illuminating answers to the most important questions of our time: Is the West ready to concede victory so easily? Are the terrorists a fringe group of fanatics, or are they part of a much wider ideological movement? What threat do they pose to the West? What can the West do to ensure victory? Is peace possible?

While the experts will answer these complex questions from diverse points of view, they all agree on one thing: Islamic totalitarianism is a real threat, and the right response necessitates engaging in a principled, ideological battle to defend the West from the jihad declared against it.

As LGF indicated the event [is] guaranteed to get a reaction from the radical Islamic student groups at UCLA. I wonder whether they will even let it take place. I hope that Campus Security will have plenty of officers present.
