  • Haaretz Smears American Terrorism Expert with Political Hit Job

    The Jewish Press ^ | October 21, 2014 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus
    To be sure, the information provided by Steve Emerson regarding a decision by the U.S. government to stand down on an ongoing attempt to provide the Israeli government with critical information regarding an Israeli soldier whom Hamas claimed it had in its custody during this summer’s conflict was shocking. But perhaps just as shocking – or it should be – was a politically driven smear by Haaretz of Emerson’s credentials and his alleged political friendships, suggesting that was all that was driving Emerson’s claims. Although the Haaretz article claimed Emerson was wrong about the facts that he alleged, its portrayal...
  • How the US first agreed and then refused to help locate a missing IDF soldier [Holder]

    For the IDF, it was one of the bloodiest battles of the entire war with Hamas. On July 19 and 20, only days after Israel began the ground offensive against Hamas, an Israeli armored personnel carrier, with nine soldiers inside from the Golani Brigade, crossed into the Hamas stronghold of Shejaia in Gaza City. It was an older APC, built in the 1970s, and was in dubious mechanical condition. The armor protecting the APC was several inches less thick than the newer models in the IDF. That such an older, outdated and unprotected APC was sent into battle would become...

    SNIPPET: "There are some good reasons for allowing at least a few jihadi forums to operate." SNIPPET: "However, there are limits to our ability to exploit all the intelligence opportunities a forum may present. To put it another way, jihadi forums contribute to future terrorism in ways that are unpredictable and/or beyond our ability to control. This would be the view held by those other government agencies who prefer to seek out and destroy forums and to take down forum activists. For my part, I can live with keeping online those forums we have sufficient access to monitor and resources...

General Dayton swears that these Palestinian recruits talk-the-talk and he adamantly refuses to think through what might happen to this "moderate" American trained fighting force when they are mixed with highly motivated radical Hamas gunmen who talk-a-very-different-talk.

    George Orwell, a great fighter and writer for freedom, captured the essence of the totalitarian mind by satirizing its use of language, and gave us the famous Orwellian inversions of the totalitarian mind — war is peace, slavery is freedom and ignorance is strength. Although such linguistic lunacy may not always reflect a totalitarian mind, it does reflect the kind of thinking that is dangerous in a democracy or any other place. And we now find one of the practitioners of the distorted thinking of Orwellian inversions is our president, Barack “The Apologizer and Appeaser” Obama and his administration. His...

    For the Record: Any Question Whose Side They’re On?Steven EmersonThe Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in the past week has lobbied Congress about conditions in Hamas-controlled Gaza and urged support for convicted Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative, Sami Al-Arian. CAIR was silent in the wake of the Yeshiva attack in Jerusalem in which a Palestinian gunman murdered eight students in cold blood, and has never called on Hamas to stop its indiscriminate rocket attacks on Israeli civilians.Talking to government officials about the humanitarian situation in Gaza is not, in and of itself, problematic. But CAIR's efforts must be viewed in the...

    There's a famously funny scene in the 1976 movie The Pink Panther Strikes Again in which Peter Sellers' bumbling Inspector Clouseau eyes a dog sitting near a hotel clerk. Clouseau: Does your dog bite? Hotel Clerk: No. Clouseau: (bowing to pet the dog) Nice doggie. (Dog barks and bites Clouseau in the hand) Clouseau: I thought you said your dog did not bite! Hotel Clerk: That is not my dog. A RECENT article by Ohio blogger Patrick Poole reminded us of how Muslim American Society (MAS) Freedom Foundation director Mahdi Bray similarly told a lie while telling the truth. In...

    On its website Tuesday, ABC News posted a story titled, "Common Misunderstandings About Muslims," which did its level best to carry water for the radical Islamist, and Jihadist, movement in America, going so far as to cite America's most notorious radical front group, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as the source to define the concept of "Jihad."Take this incredibly problematic passage:Misconception: Islam promotes violence and terrorism. Truth:According to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, prominent Muslims, Islamic organizations and Islamic scholars have repeatedly denounced the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 and terrorism in general. One letter sent to President...

    A U.S. congressman is asking Georgetown University about its academic scrutiny of Saudi Arabia and its use of $20 million donated by a Saudi prince in 2005. U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) wrote to Georgetown President John DeGioia Thursday, saying he was concerned about how the money was being spent at the university's Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. Of particular concern, Wolf said, was the university's role in training current and prospective U.S. foreign service personnel. "The Saudi government continues to permit textbooks to contain inflammatory language about other religions," Wolf wrote. "Restrictions on civil society and political activists continue to...

The meetings date back to 2005. They involved a Lebanese ambassador considered a proxy for the Syrian government and a leading member of Syria's Muslim Brotherhood.U.S. policy at the time was not to engage in talks with either man, because they represent groups with whom the United States was not to communicate. The meetings were organized by England's special assistant for...

    Former Sen. John Edward has been embracing the leader of the American Muslim Council (AMC), an organization with a history of defending Palestinian terrorists and whose founder is in prison after pleading guilty to violating anti-terror legislation. M. Ali Khan has helped organize at least two fundraisers for Edwards and, in a series of internet postings, described how he reached the inner sanctum of the former senator's campaign adviseors. Khan is listed by the Edwards campaign as a fundraising solicitor and he helped host at least two campaign fundraisers. AMC was founded in 1990 by Abdurahman Alamoudi. Alamoudi was arrested...
  • One on One with Steven Emerson: 'Jihad is jihad'

    How did you get into the business of exposing jihadist activities? I was an investigative journalist. After producing Jihad in America in 1994, I thought maybe I'd do another film on a different topic. But I'd collected so much material on radical Islamic groups - material nobody else had - that I kept getting contacted for information from certain members of the media and law-enforcement agencies. It was clearly a vacuum that needed to be filled. So I established the Investigative Project on Terrorism to carry out in-depth investigation of these groups, and go into areas that the FBI wouldn't...

    MPAC, CAIR, and Praising Osama bin Laden By Daniel | June 1, 2007The Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Council on American-Islamic Relations each have a problem. As perhaps the most prominent and effective Islamist organizations in the United States, they have distinct stylistic and ideological characteristics but work together effectively as a one-two punch. Their problem concerns two of their most prominent staffers, Edina Lekovic of MPAC and Hussam Ayloush of CAIR. Lekovic, who serves as MPAC’s communications director, appeared on CNBC’s Kudlow & Company with counterterrorism specialist Steven Emerson on May 23, where they discussed a...

After Zawahiri's introduction, he also accused us of "rapturously applause" when Israel wages war, of assenting to our governments' "atrocities in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere in the Muslim world." He also accuses us of "voicing our approval" of the so-called desecration of the Koran at Gitmo, and of our "yellow press and tele-evangelists insulting the 'Prophet' Muhammad [piss be upon him - my...

    The London bombings that on July 7, 2005 rocked a once-thought solid nation to its core and raised deep questions about the future of England. Eerily mirroring the September 11th attacks on the United States, the attacks on Britain brought Britain face to face with a dark secret about itself. The terrorists who had carried out this atrocity were not foreign marauders but British-born Muslims who had been living among ordinary Britons for decades. Melanie Phillips, acclaimed author of Londonistan, sits down with Steve Emerson to talk about the legacy of the bombings, what steps her country has taken to...
