DescriptionAn openly Islamophobic conference in California, that may have been designed to promote Islamophobia in Europe as part of the "War On Terror".

The "The Collapse of Europe?" Conference was a 2 day conference in California in June 2007. One reviewer summarised it as "a sickening collection of false prophets... ready to play into any McCarthyist campaign that promises some minutes of fame on Fox News... a plot against European humanistic policies with American taxpayers' money".[1] Tashbih Sayyed‎ was a planned speaker but died before the conference happened.
