There was a hoax poster at GWU mocking conservative attitudes to Muslims. Some Muslims, and college president Knapp, didn't see the joke.
"The posters aimed to satirically vilify conservatives, not Muslims. Knapp seemed to sympathize, telling the student newspaper: 'I understand that whatever their intent may have been, they also need to appreciate that it caused pain to members of the Muslim community.'
