Among the topics discussed during the WEBY interview with Israeli were:

  • the Arab Spring “democracy” is a vote for authoritarian Islam, not the Western liberal version;
  • the Obama Administration engagement and outreach policies could result in appeasement of fundamentalist Islamic religious autocracies;
  • the plight of persecuted Christians in Egypt and Iraq  could parallel that of Jews in Europe who failed to escape the Nazi Holocaust during WWII;
  • the rumored  Obama Administration retention of Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual Guide Yusuf al Qaradawi to assist in negotiating a peace deal with the Afghan Taliban indicates possible abandonment of the country to Islamic fundamentalists; and,
  • The Organization of Islamic Cooperation is denigrating Israel and Antisemitism by making Islamophobia the core of its global Caliphate agenda.

  1. The problem is not in collecting evidence about islamic bad intentions – but in disseminating the information. We need a more effective distribution system – any ideas?

  2. kaw, yes, another effective way is face-to-face conversation, it just does not reach as many people each time, but it shows your sincerity to the audience. If you convince two people, then they convince two people, and then two more (each) then it all doubles exponentially and grows. It’s the old word-of-mouth rule in operation. What do you have to lose? just your freedom if you don’t.
