Muslim Hunting

David Horowitz has made taunting college students a spectator sport. Sometimes he's actually right.

And the rhetoric leaking from Geller and Spencer has found sympathetic ears. After Anders Breivik launched an attack on a Norway youth camp that left 77 dead last year, police found a manifesto he penned on the "Islamic Colonization of Europe." Spencer was cited 162 times; Geller was mentioned in 12 instances.

"Geller and Spencer are probably the most important propagandizing Islamophobes in the world," Beirich says. "These people's voices speak very loudly — not just here in the United States, but overseas. And what they do is make Muslim populations susceptible to hate violence."

Yet despite the link between slash-and-burn rhetoric and Norwegian body counts, conservative activists continue to agitate -- pushing even beyond Horowitz's comfort zone.

This summer, while protestors rioted in Egypt, Yemen and Tunisia over the film Innocence of Muslims, Geller was prepping a series of ads for New York City and Washington, D.C., subway cars. The text read: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."

"Pam, I think she's a very brave woman," Horowitz says. "But she goes over the edge a little bit. The word 'savages'.... I would have used the word 'barbarians.'"
