WIMPS: “Counterterrorists” Cower & Cave to Hezbo Spy’s Lawyer

By Debbie Schlussel

The next time you hear about the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, know that the name is phony.  The organization–which is behind phonies like Mohammed Zuhdi Jasser and his false ideas that “true Islam” and “most Muslims” are peaceful–quickly folded to the empty threats of an admitted, convicted Hezbollah spy’s lawyer.  The organization would be better called “Cracking Foundation for the Defense of Democracies Until a Lawyer Sends Us a Letter and We Immediately Cave.”



Cowards: Clifford May, Walid Phares Give in to Hezbo Spy’s Lawyer Mark Zaid

As I told you the other day, Hezbollah spy and convicted felon, Nada Nadim Prouty, is doing the media rounds, boo-hooing, and otherwise whining about how she’s a woman done wrong.  And, as I also noted, her new lawyer, Mark Zaid is threatening lawsuits and sending letters.  The one person to whom he’s not sent one of his empty threats is me.  While I was out for Passover, Zaid admitted on his FaceBook Page that he won’t sue me.  That’s because he knows full well he doesn’t have a case. It’s a case he’ll not only lose, but I and my lawyers would have fun with it, along with a certain counter-suit.  Zaid’s client, Nada Nadim Prouty, admitted her crimes in a signed plea agreement, and now she’s trying to take advantage of her absurd freedom by cashing in.  She won’t get a dime from me, nor a retraction of the truth.

But look who gave in.  “Fighters” against Islamic terrorism–the same people who criticize liberals and the Obama administration (but not so much the equally wimpy Bush administration before that) for wimping out on terrorism, immediately wimped out because a lawyer’s secretary typed a baseless letter and put a stamp on it.

A lawyer is warning TV commentators, bloggers and Web sites that they could face defamation lawsuits if they continue calling his client, Nada Prouty, a terrorist spy. . . .

Zaid also sent letters to Dr. Walid Phares, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies.

Phares, a terrorism expert, is a senior fellow at the foundation and prolific author. The foundation is a Washington, D.C.-based policy institute that fights ideologies that threaten democracy.

The center is an Alexandria, Va.-based training group.

Zaid said the two organizations in January published a Phares article implying that Prouty was a Hizballah mole at the CIA and FBI.

Phares could not be reached and the foundation would not comment.

The center said it decided to remove the article from its Web site.

Yup, if these people were in your foxhole on the battlefield, you’d be dead.

I’m not surprised at the instant capitulation of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies or the two-faced Phares. Founded and headed by former New York Times reporter Cliff May–a recovering liberal who really never recovered–the organization is tireless in promoting the myth of moderate Islam. The organization sits on millions in donations from largely wealthy Jewish conservative philanthropists, who actually believe May’s fertilizer that he’s fighting the Islamic threat on America (through such things as instant cowering over a Hezbollah spy’s lawyer’s letter).

May and his organization, along with Frank Gaffney and Daniel Pipes, are big-time behind the creation of this character, known as “M. Zuhdi Jasser,” and his organization of “moderate Muslims” made up of mostly Jewish and Christian members. The “M.” stands for Mohammed (which, like everything else about himself, he’s trying to obscure), and I’ve discussed, at length on this site, what a fraud Jasser is and how he’s attacked Israel, embraced a terrorist Imam who recruited young Somalians to become homicide bombers in Africa, and otherwise lied about Islam.

And then there’s Phares. The Maronite Christian from Lebanon cannot go back to his native because he reportedly worked with the Israelis. But here in America, he’s played people like a fiddle and also cowered immediately for a buck. Phares was the key prosecution witness in the Detroit Terror Cell trial. But when politically-motivated, Islamo-friendly feds, themselves, overturned the conviction of Al-Qaeda terrorists and went on a witch-hunt against prosecutor Richard Convertino, Phares played both sides. Privately, he sent me unsolicited e-mails (which I was never asked nor did I agree to keep confidential) filled with fake tears over the horrible fate Convertino faced (and eventually beat), noting that these were, indeed, Islamic terrorists.

But, publicly, Phares–the TV personality intent on keeping his perch ‘cuz he has books to sell–said nothing about the case and quietly cooperated with prosecutors in their successful efforts to free the Al-Qaeda terrorists and their unsuccessful but harrowing attempt to prosecute Convertino.  He did nothing to do the right thing and help Convertino, under fire for actually convicting Islamic terrorists who planned to blow up Disneyland, sites in Las Vegas, and an Air Force base, from which US and Israeli planes took off.  Hey, he had some moola to protect. Phares gets paid by the hour to testify as an expert witness in Islamic terrorism trials . . . and he didn’t want to give that up to stand up for a man he privately declared was innocent.

If I were trapped in a pit with a venomous cobra and Mr. Phares, I’d have to rely on the cobra to rescue me from the more poisonous snake.

If this is an example of how Clifford May engages in the “Defense of Democracies,” it’s time for him to close up shop.  Epic failure here.  But no shocker to anyone in the know.

Mark Zaid has done some very good work in the past (on the Haditha case, Lockerbie, and other matters) but he is just wrong on this issue. And these baseless threats of lawsuit are beneath him and not, as far as I know, typical of how he has comported himself in the past.

What is going on in this country? It is NOT a sad state of affairs, when a Lawyer has to hire another Lawyer, just to defend herself against a frivolous lawsuit? What the hell is going on here? Are they NOT admitting she is correct and that they agree with her facts and agree that what she wrote is true?
Then why the Heck does Debbie need a Lawyer if the Truth is on her side, and the attorney for the Spy agrees with her?

I’m just saying…

(1) Spot who is attacking us.
(2) Start investigating them promptly for felonies or worse using own professionals, not outside agencies.
(3) Double curve our reply by saying we welcome an investigation of them.
(4) Start feeding lurid, blood, sex, crime actual evidence on the attackers to the press.
Don’t ever tamely submit to an investigation of us. Make it rough, rough on attackers all the way. You can get “reasonable about it” and lose. Sure we break no laws. Sure we have nothing to hide. BUT attackers are simply an anti-Scientology propaganda agency so far as we are concerned. They have proven they want no facts and will only lie no matter what they discover. So BANISH all ideas that any fair hearing is intended and start our attack with their first breath. Never wait. Never talk about us – only them. Use their blood, sex, crime to get headlines. Don’t use us. I speak from 15 years of experience in this. There has never yet been an attacker who was not reeking with crime. All we had to do was look for it and murder would come out.

Debbie is an attorney…. she has good grounds to file a counter-suit.

She isn’t scared of thugs in suits. If they had something incriminating on her, she’d come out and say so. They don’t.

And that’s the T-R-U-T-H – capital T!

Is it just imagination, or is her head totally lopsided? Could be a case of the left-handed harem master.

As usual, this site is home to the strange but true stories of how our country is absolutely operating like a shorted out super computer.

I am grateful for your observations about the faux anti-Islamist Mohammed Zhudi Jasser–both in this posting and as revealed by a use of your search engine. I have long been suspicious of him.

I recently came upon a video posted on the Hudson Institute’s website promoting Hudson’s new book, “The Other Muslims–Moderate and Secular,” which I am now reading. M. Zhudi Jasser is one of the contributors to the book and was also featured with two other alleged “moderate Muslims” in the promotional video.

During the question and answer session near the end of the video Jasser made a very telling observation about the foundation of his beliefs. He revealed that his “character, spirituality and morality” are rooted in the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed. It is my understand that Mohammed’s teaching included an espousal of rape, pillage and murder. Thank you.

RG: And Muhammed also taught that war is deception. Hence the soothing, reassuring rhetoric of this “moderate” Muslim, Jasser. He deceives, and one should expect nothing less, as befits a follower and emulator of Muhammed, the Perfect Man, the Excellent Example for all mankind, he who murdered poets and Jewish farmers, enslaved and raped women, and had sexual intercourse with nine year old Aisha. And for three years prior to this, the hadiths report that he masturbated against Aisha’s knees, and that she was charged with cleaning the semen stains from his clothing. How spiritual, indeed, was this Muhammed.
