The week after Chicago congressman Joe Walsh claimed, "There is a radical
strain of Islam in this country, trying to kill Americans every week," there
were two attacks in the Chicago suburbs, one at a mosque, the other at an
Islamic school. In previous weeks, a mosque in Joplin, Missouri was burned
to the ground, and Sikh worshippers in Wisconsin were murdured "for looking
Muslim." In the wake of 9/11, Islamophobia-in both neoconservative and
liberal forms-has been an important ideological pillar of the "war on
terror." From cultural, theological, and political perspectives, our
speakers will deconstruct the most persistent myths about Islams and
Muslims. and examine the role Islamophobia plays in justifying war abroad
and political repression at home.
