    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...

    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...

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.

    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.

    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...

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.

  • 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...

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.

    When it comes to terrorism, Steven Emerson has every right to say he told us so. The award-winning investigative journalist and international terrorism expert spent the last half of the 1990s warning, very presciently, about militant Islamic activities in the United States in PBS documentaries such as "Jihad in America" (1996) and before Congressional hearings. Before 9/11 hit us, what Emerson mostly got for his digging was slander from mainstream media for being an "Islamophobe" and death threats from Islamic thugs. NPR blacklisted him, which is probably a good thing. Here is what he was saying in May of 2001:...

The three day conference will commence on December 19, 2003, which “coincidentally” marks the beginning of Hanukkah. The timing is not to be confused with the objective -- highlighting peace and brotherhood will not be the conference's priorities in marking the holiday season.
