In 2007 the David Center held a provocative “Islamic Fascism Awareness Week” in at least 100 colleges across America to alert Americans about the alleged threat posed by Islam, and in 2017 the center published posters and flyers on campus with the aim of stigmatizing student groups – such as The Muslim Students Association and Students for Justice in Palestine – terrorists.

Which, upon confirmation of it, was forfeited, with pictures and documents to gain sympathy.

Ayan is the author of a book entitled “Prey … Immigration, Islam and the Erosion of Women’s Rights”, in which she describes Muslim men as predators, to attract more right-wing extremists to justify violence against Muslims.
