As you know Senator Obama’s first choice as his Muslim out reach director was pushed out because of his association with organizations connected with the Muslim Brotherhood. Yesterday pollster John Zogby, wrote an article in the Huffington post, he didn’t dispute any of the facts, he just blasted the reports as some sort of smear Job. Actually his article was a smear job–here you have a pollster that should be using facts and science, is using innuendo, to discredit the people who exposed the facts about Mazen Asbahi and to protect the Muslim Brotherhood. Makes one wonder if his poll numbers are skewed also:
Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily ReportOne of the major rhetorical tactics of the global Muslim Brotherhood can be characterized as “accuse others of that of which you yourself are guilty.”For example, U.S. Muslim Brotherhood organizations with a history of anti-Semitism frequently accuse critics of “Islamophobia” and, while asserting “smear campaigns” directed against Muslims, do their best to demonize and defame their critics. The general strategy is to conflate criticism of the Muslim Brotherhood and/or Islamism with attacks on Muslims or Islam itself. Thus, individuals and organizations who report on Brotherhood activities are frequently called “Islamophobes” and their work products labeled as “anti-Islam.”The aim of such tactics appears to be invoking the laudatory impulse to defend against genuine defamation as opposed to critical analysis. A further goal seems to be the generation of support for Brotherhood organizations by manufacturing the impression that Islam and Muslims are under attack, requiring the intercession of Brotherhood organizations for defense.An example of such tactics is a piece which appeared yesterday on the Huffington Post, a left-wing blog, by pollster and prominent Arab-American James Zogby. The piece describes the events surrounding the  resignation of former Obama campaign Muslim outreach coordinator Mazen Asbahi as follows:
The Journal thus could not have “picked up the non-story” from “extremist right wing bloggers” because there was no story until Mr. Asbahi actually resigned, nor had any other publication or blog discussed his ties to the U.S. Brotherhood. Undoubtedly, the Journal learned of the information about Mr. Asbahi from readers of the GMBDR, which includes members of the media among its subscribers.Since the Asbahi affair began, organizations that are part of, or supportive of, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood have called the GMBDR part of a group of “mudslinging Web sites harboring a blatantly anti-Muslim agenda” and now “a shady website that monitors Muslim activism and organizations.” In fact, the GMBDR has neither an anti-Muslim agenda nor does it monitor Muslim activism and organizations.
The GMBDR monitors the activities of the global Muslim Brotherhood which, while comprised of Muslims, does not constitute the entire body politic of the Muslim community although the Brotherhood organization attempts to assume the role of sole spokesmen for that community. As a previous GMBDR  post discussed, the reporting on Mr. Asbahi contained no “accusations” or “guilt by association” but rather was a factual exposition of Mr. Asbahi’s ties to organizations close to, or part of, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood — reporting that was well within the writ of this publication and certainly of public interest given Mr. Asbahi’s position in the Obama campaign.The accuracy of this reporting has never been questioned or challenged. In contrast, the U.S. Brotherhood has responded with demonization, inaccurate citations, and accusations of bias and racism despite the fact that there is no evidence that these critics have ever actually read any of the reports in question.
