At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2010, Jihad Watch Director Robert Spencer and I are launching a new organization, the Freedom Defense Initiative (FDI), by presenting a forum entitled Jihad: The Political Third Rail — What They Are Not Telling You. The presentation is designed to speak the truths that others will not speak — and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is enraged.
The conference is designed to educate Americans about the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration at the highest levels of the U.S. government, as well as its war on free speech: its attempt to silence and discredit those who speak up against the jihad and Shariah encroachment in the West.
Emphasis will be on the international character of the jihad against the West and on how the Islamic war on free speech (and the media’s self-imposed blackout on this issue, as in the Fort Hood massacre) is part and parcel of the same jihad against the West that terrorists are pursuing by violent means.
And that’s too much for CAIR. Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for CAIR, said, "They’re free to be anti-Muslim bigots if they like, but it’s really up to the organizers of CPAC to determine if they’re going to allow their conference to be associated with the hate-filled views of those who will be speaking."
In a Fox News online article, “CPAC Session on Jihad, Free Speech Attracts Complaints,” by Fox reporter Judson Berger, we are labeled “pot stirrers.” Why doesn’t Fox explain what CAIR is? As Robert Spencer explained at Jihad Watch: “CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department.
“CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s co-founder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. CAIR has warred against free speech in the past.”
Why doesn’t Fox read the documents from the Holy Land trial, which exposed the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda of “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within,” and made plain CAIR’s connection to the Brotherhood?
Why does Fox cover for this subversive organization? And why do they run everything they say unchallenged while smearing me in every other paragraph?
Why am I called a bigot by a vocal anti-Semite, unchallenged?
Has Hooper called Grover Norquist about the FDI conference yet? Norquist can’t be pleased about it.
The Fox article also makes this accusation: “organizers of the ‘Jihad’ session have been trying to stir the pot with what they call a blunt and objective discussion of Muslims’ attempts to harm the West while silencing criticism.” Fox acts as if this is just some claim we’re making. Did they try to find out if there really were any Muslim attempts to “harm the West while silencing criticism”?
On JihadWatch.org Spencer commented on this, saying that that the Fox reporter, Judson Berger, “probably has no idea that the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), to which Obama just sent a special envoy, has for years now spearheaded an effort at the UN to compel member states to criminalize what it calls ‘defamation of religions,’ but by which it clearly means any honest discussion of the texts and teachings of Islam that jihadists invoke to justify violence and supremacism.”
This Fox article is more proof of why this conference is so very necessary. All you have to do is utter jihad and the smear merchants and their handmaidens come out shooting.
The Islamic supremacists are trying to shut down free speech, and especially speech that reveals who they are, what they are doing, and how they are infiltrating America at senior levels of the Pentagon, the FBI, the CIA, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security.
Hats off to Lisa DePasquale of CPAC, who said: "We have different perspectives among the co-sponsor events, and we don’t want to censor any group from being able to invite people to attend their forums.”
Be there, folks. This event is supplying truth that you will not hear elsewhere, and on which hangs the very future of our nation. You can see from this Fox article how much powerful people don’t want you hearing the things we are going to be discussing at this conference.
It will be held at the Mariott Wardman Park Hotel, the site of CPAC, on Feb. 19, from 10 a.m. to noon.
In the war of ideas, this is the battleground.
