Just to give full disclosure, many of you may remember that I was recently banned from Little Green Footballs for refusing to give up my friendship with Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) and Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch).
Today Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs struck a new low. No he didn’t ban his mother (although she did once see Robert Spencer on Fox News so she better watch out). Charles became the tool of CAIR the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
You see, Robert Spencer is an expert on Jihad and Islam.He is the author of eight books on Islam and jihad, including the New York Times bestsellers The Truth About Muhammad and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades). Spencer has led seminars on Islam and jihad for the United States Central Command, United States Army Command and General Staff College, the U.S. Army’s Asymmetric Warfare Group, the FBI, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the U.S. intelligence community.
CAIR considers anyone who criticizes anyone who criticizes Islamist terror an Islamophobe. As you might imagine Robert Spencer is a prime target. When Spencer was invited to speak on a panel for the American Library Association (ALA) they sent out a press release requesting the ALA remove Robert from the Program. Who do they use to try to prove their argument? Little Green Footballs:
The blog “Little Green Footballs” (LGF) notes that Spencer was listed as a speaker at a European conference in May “organized by a group called ‘Pro Koln’ — a successor to the notorious fascist group ‘Deutsche Liga fur Volk und Heimat’ (the ‘German League for People and Homeland’).”
LGF goes on to note that the Pro Koln group “is under observation by the German inland secret service… One of the main organizers of ‘Pro Koln’ is Manfred Rouhs. Here are two photos of Rous with hardcore neo-Nazi activist Axel Reitz, who the local media call ‘the Hitler of Cologne.'”
The LGF blog, also known for its Islamophobic viewpoint, wrote of Spencer’s site: “His website has descended into a true hate site at this point, dominated by extreme, bigoted commenters who regularly advocate genocide and mass murder of Muslims.”
Great Argument CAIR, If a Bigot like LGF hates Spencer, he must be really bad. Problem is Spencer isn’t really bad. He is a man who has studied Islam for years. As a regular reader of his his site I know that he is desperately trying to save lives, protect against child abuse, honor killings and abuse of women in Islam, among other issues.
Now here is a bit more about the group which is not quoting LGF around, CAIR. The FBI has proven CAIR to be involve with the terrorist group Hamas. In fact last year when the world guilty was read a total of 108 times in a Dallas court room as a jury convicted the Holy Land foundation and each of the defendants of raising money to fund Hamas terrorism, they were also implicating CAIR .The supposed Human rights organization was an unindicted co-conspirator in the case. Indeed one key piece of evidence was the Wiretap evidence that put CAIR’s former executive director, Nihad Awad, at a Philadelphia meeting of Hamas leaders. Participants hatched a plot to deceive Americans and disguise payments to Hamas as it launched a campaign of terror attacks. CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad also joined Hamas big shots at the meeting.
Congratulations Charles Johnson, you are now officially a tool, a Terrorist Tool. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Robert Spencer has written his own response to CAIR which appears on Jihad Watch, which you can read here
