With online projects such as Jihad Watch, Students for Academic Freedom, and Front Page Magazine, activist and writer David Horowitz has established himself as a leading right-wing voice in the US.

Horowitz considers liberals to be supporting, either intentionally or unintentionally, "Islamic terrorism" and this was the subject of one of his books, Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left.
In another one of his books, The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America, he criticises professors who are critical of Israel and argues that American universities are indoctrinating students instead of educating them.
Last year Horowitz launched a controversial programme on American university campuses called, "Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week," and this year he will do it again under a new banner, "Stop the Jihad on Campus".
His mission this year will be to ban the Muslim Students Association in America.
His critics accuse him of launching a new era of McCarthyism in the US, attempting to stifle free speech in universities, and insulting Muslims by linking Islam with a pejorative term such as fascism.
Riz speaks to Horowitz about his ongoing crusade as well as to a leading Arab-American activist, Hussein Ibish, who is a senior fellow at the American Task Force on Palestine.
