Liberals are so afraid of offending Muslims that they are denying these facts which are staring us in the face:
- A former comptroller of the ISA, Ismael Selim Elbarasse, has been referred to by authorities as a high-ranking Hamas operative who was arrested in August while videotaping the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and has been implicated in efforts to channel financing to international terrorist activities.
- In March of 2002, ISA graduate Mohammad Osman Idris was charged with lying to a U.S. grand jury investigating whether he and another ISA graduate planned to take part in acts of terror or violence against the State of Israel. The grand jury was investigating whether Idris was attempting to provide key support to Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
- In August, the Free Muslim Coalition Against Terrorism called on the ISA to remove a textbook used to teach first-graders that stated that Judaism and Christianity are false religions.
These are the reasons my organization is now sponsoring Jihad Watch, an information and action campaign to alert the American people to the real threat of the Muslim jihad, and what needs to be done to make our country and our civilization secure.
I am writing to you today to ask your support. Here's just one example of what we need to expose:
Omar Ahmad, when former chairman of the board of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations made that statement. CAIR's spokesmen appear regularly in the media complaining about the treatment of Muslims and giving us the message that "Muslims are part of the fabric of this great country and are working to build a better America." But when speaking to a Muslim audience, as Omar Ahmad was, the message is not so benign. I'm certain you didn't know who made this statement. The media are too eager to portray Islam just as Muslims wish them to. But I'm out to portray it as it really is.The threat of Islam's Holy War is so dangerous that we can't continue to allow Americans to remain ignorant. That's why I brought in the most hard-hitting and knowledgeable expert in Islam I know, who has already been running the Jihad Watch website on his own for several years.
He is Robert Spencer, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and other books, who has studied Islamic theology, law and history for decades. He has been a consultant to the U.S. State Department, U.S. Central Command, the Department of Homeland Security and the German Foreign Ministry on Islam and Jihad, and has appeared on the BBC, the VOA, CNN, and numerous other TV and radio outlets to discuss Jihad and terrorism.
His most recent book, The Truth About Muhammad, has been banned in Pakistan because it contains "objectionable material" about Muhammad, the prophet of Islam. An official at the Pakistani Embassy in Washington said: "The book is very, very damaginglet me tell you."
"May Allah rip out his spine from his back and split his brains in two, and then put them both back, and then do it over and over again... Amen."
That's supposed to be a prayer! Have you noticed any Christian or Jewish prayers like that? And if you received that kind of threat - along with many others - would you continue to dig up and publicize the truth about Islam? Robert Spencer does, even though he has to conceal where he lives and some things about his identity to protect his family.Robert is a hero. I'm proud that he is heading up Jihad Watch for us.
The Jihad Watch effort includes booklets, articles, speeches, email campaigns, Internet, and as many appearances in the media as we can get. We're already experts at getting media attention, and Jihad Watch is the kind of hot topic that TV and radio hosts love. We need to raise $180,000 for the next three months of Jihad Watch.
For your gift of $25 or more I'll send you Robert Spencer's pamphlet, What Americans Need to Know About Jihad. For your gift of $50 or more I'll also send Robert's Politically Correct Guide to Islam. If your gift is $100 or more, I'll also send you the book that was banned in Pakistan, The Truth About Muhammad.
I know that many Americans do not want to face unpleasant facts. Too many refuse to admit that Islamic jihad is out to destroy America and is already influencing much that goes on in the media, the entertainment industry, schools, libraries, and other institutions.
I hope you are one person who is not afraid to face the threat and do something about it. Please respond right away with your generous gift.
My Sincere Thanks,
President & Founder
P.S. Imagine American women submitting to wearing a head scarf, or giving up contact with unrelated men. Imagine the Koran as the ultimate authority over our daily lives. That's so hard to think about that it appears unreal. Yet that is the exact goal of the jihadists' Holy War. Please help me fight them with the truth.
