Steven Emerson looks at what happens When Islamists Get Caught: they immediately cry “Islamophobia!” and “Free speech!” and “Out of context!”
And the mainstream media covers for them.
The Esam Omeish affair is the latest example of a “moderate,” “peaceful” American Muslim leader done in by his own words, caught on tape.
Omeish, the president of the Muslim American Society (MAS), was forced to resign last week from his recently-appointed position on Virginia Governor Tim Kaine’s immigration commission when videos featuring Omeish posted by Little Green Footballs and the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) were brought to the governor’s attention.
Kaine asked for Omeish’s resignation after observing one video featuring Omeish at a December 2000 rally praising Palestinians for “…you have learned the way, that you have known that the jihad way is the way to liberate your land.”
Instead of owning up to his words, Omeish told reporters at a press conference Friday that he was taken out of context as part of a “smear campaign” based on“Islamophobia.”
When speaking of jihad, he said he did not mean violence. He only meant “exerting full effort.” He, like the Muslim American Society, is completely peaceful, espousing only a “path of moderation, engagement and outreach.” Omeish is a surgeon, and before that, an honor student â€“ a pillar of the community, and nothing more. The re-production of his own words is an “Islamophobic” “smear.”
MAS Freedom Foundation Executive Director, Mahdi Bray, went one step further, portraying Omeish as the victim of a not-so-vast right wing conspiracy by those who “send people into our mosques and send people into our conventions dressed as Muslim women with hidden cameras.”
* Scrutiny and exposure is obviously something Muhammedans don’t like at all. But do you think even ONE of these wankers from the PC- media would ask why?
Calls for censorship: The Clitman’s know how its done and do it all the time
Whatever it takes…
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign forced a magazine to drop a negative story about her by threatening to cut off the publication’s access to the former President Bill Clinton, it emerged yesterday.
The ruthless response to GQ magazine, and its decision to bow to the ultimatum, reflects the enormous leverage Mr Clinton brings to his wife’s White House bid at a time when her quest for the Democratic nomination appears more formidable than ever.
Wes Clark calls for political discourse to be rated
Dangerous lunacy and hypocrisy by a self aggrandizing ex-general whose arrogance is only toppled by his ego but Tucker won’t have any of it:
Pipe Bombers Firecracker Boyz
Our Friends the Egyptians
University of South Florida student Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, arrested with pipe bombs near a North Carolina Navy base, is going to have his defense paid for by Egypt.
“We are responsible for the sons of Egypt abroad with no exception,” el-Qawassni said.
* Cool. So is Egypt going to pay for Muhammad Atta flying a jet into the WTC on 9/11?
Mohamed, 24, and another USF student, Youssef Samir Megahed, 21, are charged with carrying explosive materials across state lines.

I think it’s a marvelous idea to “send people into our mosques and send people into our conventions dressed as Muslim women with hidden camerasâ€ and I believe we should do LOTS MORE of it. This article shows exactly why: In the bosom of their fellow Islamicists, these fanatics feel free to display the truth of Islam; when they are out in Infidel society, they hew to the “Religion of Peace” facade. The more publicity their duplicitous behavior gets, the clearer the lie must become, even to the left-wing apologists for Islamism who populate our news media. Sooner or later our citizens and our governments will be FORCED to acknowledge the danger of allowing unimpeded immigration by these Islamic subversives who want to destroy our countries and establish a worldwide Caliphate.
Good, Good,Good……let’s expose as much of islamic duplicity as we can and then perhaps more people will listen.
It’s really hard to get people to wake up, isn’t it?
When the media starts getting honest it will be a relief.
Emerson, a Jew who gets it
A perspective of a moderate Muslim
At the risk of sounding anti-Semitic, I want to say this: either American Jews are completely clueless about the internal struggle inside Islam or they are so cowardly, that they are even afraid to voice their opinion. Or maybe it’s a combination of both.
Every time there is a development that involves radical Islam, be it a Mayor of New York attending an Islamist parade, DOJ’s officials attending an Islamist conference, or a protester being sued for having the balls to expose an Islamist-sponsored event at an amusement park, the American Jewish community is as quiet as a church mouse. It’s like it is not even there.
The effect of this silence is devastating. Not for the Jewish community, not yet. That time is still to come. The silence affects the American Muslim community. Every time moderate Muslims are ignored and Islamists are legitimized (by either direct support from government representatives or silent support of the ADL), radicals gain ground. In the current PC climate, moderate Muslims have pretty much no choice but to keep their mouths shut.
Luckily for us, not everyone in the Jewish community is like that. There are some Jews that are speaking out. One of them is Steven Emerson, who has been warning the West about the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism since before PanAm 103. Most of his current work is focused on exposing the radicals masquerading as the moderates â€“ those radicals who are embraced by the DOJ and the Pentagon, by the mayor of New York Bloomberg (Rudy would never get into bed with terrorist supporters) and the Treasury Department, by the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security, by the Congress and the White House.
There is a war of ideas within Islam, and moderate Muslims are losing. Most of Muslim clergy and Muslim establishment are paid for by the Wahhabis. Moderate Muslims are being run out of Mosques and community centers, and in many cases are physically threatened. Moderate Muslims have no place in the media or public debate, because the place reserved for Muslims is filled by Islamic radicals, who attempt to make criticizing anything Islamic a taboo. According to the Islamists, a Muslim can do no wrong.
1. When a non-Muslim criticizes Islam or Muslims, he/she is an Islamophobe.
2. When a Muslim criticizes Islam or Muslim, he/she is not a real Muslim, therefore see #1.
This is a tactic used by “moderate” Muslims, the darlings of the government and the media. But how can you call someone who praises bin Laden, or has ties to Hamas, or calls for the elimination of Israel, or wants to replace the Constitution with the Koran a moderate? They are anything but moderates, however nobody except for a few people like Steven Emerson seems to notice that. But even when the Emersons of America appeal to the public, they are often being dismissed as alarmists and racists. Well, they are anything, but. You don’t have to be a clairvoyant to predict the future when it comes to expansion of radical Islam and extinction of moderate Muslims. All you need to do is get your heads out of the sand.
Why our government is so forgiving and forgetful when it comes to individuals or organizations with known terrorist ties and anti-American views is beyond me. Why the Jewish leaders are so timid when it comes to the subject of radical Islam is incomprehensible.
I thank God every day for people like Steven Emerson, because they are the last glimmer of hope for moderate Muslims.
Thanks Sheik, I hope people read what KM has written and understand that there are moderate muslims and that they need help. The MSM is unfortunately a significant part of the problem and we need to understand and destroy the mechanisms by which the media has been hijacked.
