**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
To me and most of you, today’s Congressional hearings held by Congressman Peter King are a waste of time. We already know about the real Islam, the real American Muslims. Anyone who doesn’t hasn’t been paying attention . . . t0 the 9/11 attacks, to the Fort Hood massacre, to the attempted Times Square bombing, to almost every single mosque, Islamic school, and imam in America preaching open support for HAMAS and Hezbollah, which murdered hundreds of Americans (thousands if you add to their Beirut attacks, the bombs they helped Al-Qaeda make for attacks in Iraq and Hezbollah’s joint venture with Al-Qaeda in the Khobar Towers and East African embassy bombings).
Is Peter King Really Against Islamic Terrorism?
One Struggle: Peter King w/ IRA’s Gerry Adams, PLO Supporter
King’s hearings include Congressman John Dingell (D-Dearbornistan), who just testified, this morning, that his district is “diverse” because it has “Lebanese, Yemenis, Palestinians,” etc. Um, memo to John Dingell: it’s NOT diverse because they are all extremists, all Muslims. Few Arab Christians live in his district because they are ostracized. It’s hardly “diverse” when all of the Muslims in your district support Hezbollah and HAMAS and try to frame and kill those who want peace with Israel, as happened to my client, “Haidar.”
Dingell says the Muslims in his district are very patriotic Americans because they hold elective office. Um, here’s a tip: holding office means only that you sought power and got some. It doesn’t mean you’re a patriotic American. Just that you have patriotism to yourself and–in the case of Dingell’s Muslim constituents, Hezbollah and HAMAS. These people are American in birth only. Their patriotism is to an extremist religion and Islamic terrorist groups. Tens of thousands of them marching on the streets in favor of those groups in the middle of the day is a giant hint.
The hearings, like I said, are a waste of time and unlikely to achieve or uncover anything we don’t already know. And he’s talking about “radical” Islam. But there is only one kind of Islam: Islam. And it’s inherently radical. That King doesn’t get that or pretends there are two different kinds of Islam, a “fringe” radical version, rather than the mainstream, dominant Islam that is entirely radical, makes the hearings useless. Until he admits that, he’s gotten nowhere.
Some naifs are upset that Rep. King isn’t having faux-expert on terrorism Steven Emerson at his hearings. Your anger is misplaced. Read my complete take on Emerson, who has phoned, left voice-mail messages, and e-mailed me, unsolicited, in the middle of the night, openly threatening me. As I’ve repeatedly noted on this site, Emerson is a fraud who hasn’t had any new information on Islamic terrorists in America since well before 9/11. I represented a man who was for a long time Emerson’s only Muslim informant and Emerson treated him like crap and lost all of his reports. The brains behind Emerson’s operation left him just after 9/11, and those who are real terrorism experts know that Emerson’s “work” now is mostly plagiarized (from me and others) and of little value, except to himself to lie to his donors and constantly bring in millions for nothing.
Emerson constantly pleads “poverty” to his foolish donors, but in fact, collect millions a year, which I’m told has been used to pay interns and employees to clean his messy apartment and pick up his dry cleaning. For years, Emerson’s organization was a for-profit so that he did not have to file publicly available tax returns and no-one could see how much money he was sitting on. When he finally filed, last year, for the first time as a non-profit, he violated the law and only posted a dollar figure, not any details on how the money was spent, transferring all of the money to his for-profit private corporation, to shield himself from any scrutiny.
Frankly, CAIR Action Network is more open and honest–at least on the books–about how much money it is taking in and on what it is spent. So, it would be hilarious if Emerson had been at these hearings. He’s nothing more than a fraud. His day has come and gone and he’s since contributed nothing to the fight against the Islamic threat on American soil.
Don’t look for the King hearings to do any differently. Talk is cheap, and that’s all these hearings are. King has been talking for years. When America–including the Republicans now in power–finally have the cojones to actually do something about the Islamic threat, then we’ll be making progress. Until then, we aren’t even Sisyphus rolling the giant rock. We haven’t even countenanced the beginning of the hill yet.
On another note, some of Peter King’s critics are citing his support and appearances with the Irish Republican Army, as evidence that he’s a hypocrite. And, while King is trying to differentiate the IRA from Islamic terrorists, I agree with his critics. The IRA is and always has been a terrorist group no different from Islamic terrorists. In fact, the IRA trained with the P.L.O. and myriad other Islamic terrorist groups. The IRA joined with Communists all over the world, including in Nicaragua in the ’80s, when they helped the Sandinistas persecute Managua’s Jews and kick them out of the Managua Synagogue, to turn it into a club for the kids of P.L.O. members.
King claims the IRA is different from Al-Qaeda because it never attacked Americans on U.S. soil. That’s a distinction without a difference. In fact the IRA has been active in various factions of the Al-Qaeda network all over the world. They are aiding Islamic terrorists and training with them. Instead, King is proud of his status as the great-nephew of an IRA member and escorted Sinn Fein leader, Gerry Adams, all over Capitol Hill in the ’80s. Sinn Fein is the political wing of the IRA. At the time, King stated,
If civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame the I.R.A. for it.
If King is truly against Islamic terrorism, he’d never have said such a thing or hung out with Al-Qaeda’s Irish compatriots. And he’d denounce that he did so in the past. But he stands by it. And so his hearings today are doubly useless.
**** UPDATE: One other very important thing about the Muslims at the hearing. Peter King invited M. Zuhdi Jasser, a fraud who pretends to be a moderate Muslim, to speak at the hearings. In fact, his real name is Mohammed Zuhdi Jasser, a fact he likes to hide. Read my complete expose on this total phony, Mohammed Z. Jasser.
As I’ve discussed on this site several times, Jasser calls Israel, “the occupied territories,” supports far-left Jewish anti-Israel “interfaith” groups, supports extremist Muslims taking over Muslim countries via “democratic elections for Muslims,” made excuses for the Minneapolis imam who recruited his own Somali congregants for Islamic terrorist attacks, and has made a host of other excuses for extremists. He repeatedly claims that most Muslims are peaceful because they don’t attend a mosque, which is absolute bunk. Some of the most extremist Muslims and many Islamic terrorists never attended a mosque. One has nothing to do with the other, as he well knows.
Regardless, he represents no Muslims, as they aren’t members of his phony organization. He has no business at these hearings, because he simply lies and doesn’t represent mainstream Islam.
