A follow-up to yesterday’s post on the PBS documentary ‘Jihad in America’. The video below is an episode of Charlie Rose. It aired on PBS
fifteen seventeen years ago today. Watch it.
Charlie Rose hosts the executive producer of the documentary, Steve Emerson, and three Muslims (3 on 1). They are one-time CAIR board member Anisa Abd El-Fattah, Mohammad Mehdi, and possibly the most irrational of the lot, Abdurahman Alamoudi. The twist we told you about in the last post is that the defiant, evidence-ignoring Alamoudi is now in prison, convicted of terror-related offenses. Read more, here, about Alamoudi – who set up the troubling U.S. military Muslim chaplain infrastructure and recruiting process (to ensure wahabbi-trained Muslims could infiltrate the military). Grab a snack/drink and watch.
The tactics used
15 17 years ago are the same tactics used today. Deflect questions, ignore evidence, provide cover for the Islamist threat, blame the messenger for the words and actions of Muslims, blame Israel, dominate the discussion and waste time with irrelevant chatter, portray Muslims as victims in the wake of Americans being killed by Muslims, and so on.
No politician, young or old, has any excuse – this issue has been known for at least 15 years, yet still has been ignored, if not aided, by most in office.
Prelude: It gets worse – Alamoudi had 31 counts against him dropped in his plea deal, yet for some unknown reason federal prosecutors asked and a Federal Judge Cut the al Qaeda Financiers Sentence By Six Years!
