Here’s Fox’s take. I will have full video soon thanks to Pamela H. and a number of attendees. A complete DVD with outtake interviews will be available next week. Fox — dhimmi media. Watch the event when the video goes on line and see for yourself.
Did the FOX reporter even listen to what these reliable witnesses testified to? Shame on them. Leave a comment on the FOX propaganda piece.
Fox News, a chuck of which is owned by the Saudis, does their bidding. Period.
Unofficial CPAC Event Takes on Islam FOX News
The speakers participating in
“Jihad: America’s Third Rail,” an “unofficial” panel at today’s Conservative
Political Action Conference (CPAC) wanted their standing-room only audience to
know that there’s more to fear than jihad — it’s
Islam itself that is the threat.
Sentiments like that are what has
made this panel — which just ended here at the Marriott Wardman Hotel in D.C —
one of the more controversial at the three-day conservative confab.
“Everyone knows Islam is a religion
of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority,” said Robert Spencer,
sarcastically and to a great amount of applause and guffaws. Spencer, executive
director of Jihad Watch and associate director of the
Freedom Defense Initiative, which he recently founded with Atlas Shrugged
blogger Pamela Geller, told his audience everyone believes that “like they
believe in Santa Claus though no one has ever seen it.”
He declared that “conservative media
leaders even parrot this line” that Islam is a peaceful religion at its
So defined the event, which repeated
the group’s message, that political correctness was preventing the American
people — elected officials and the government included — from acknowledging —
in Geller’s words — that Islamists “have infiltrated at every level of society
and all levels of government.”
Spencer called recent complaints
that full body scanners at airports violate the privacy and modesty of Muslim
women according to Islamic law and attempts to accommodate them a “perversity,”
since Muslims “themselves made (scanners) necessary.”
Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates, argued that Islam is a tryannical
religion and was roundly applauded when she was introduced as a “former
Islam is “the very same teaching
that drove 19 terrorists to fly planes into the World Trade Center,” she
Steve Coughlin, who says he was
fired from his job as a Pentagon analyst for his un-PC examination of the Koran
as a justification for jihad, told the audience that there is no question in his
mind that political correctness has undermined the government’s strategy in the
War on Terror, including its inability to have foreseen the threat from Maj.
Nidal Hasan, the Army psychologist is accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood
Coughlin said the threat of jihad is
closer than we think, “you think they (jihadists) are fighting a war there? I
think they are fighting a war right here.”
Others speakers included Elisabeth
Sabaditsch-Wolff, who is being investigated for hate speech in Austria for her
critical seminars on Islam; Simon Weng [sic] a former slave in Sudan; Anders Gravers,
a Dane who wrote Stop the Islamization of Europe; and Lt. Col Allen West (Ret.),
a candidate for congress in Florida.
The event was on CPAC’s schedule,
but CPAC organizers said it was “unofficial” and sponsored by outside groups.
Attendees were asked for picture identification because they did not want
“certain people coming in,” said one guard. Geller had drawn controversy last
year when she attempted to set up a similar forum, officially, featuring Dutch
anti-Islamic activist Geert Wilders.
UPDATE: David Weigel at the Washington Independent was much more ……..even handed.
UPDATE: Nice write-up at Right Pundits.
UPDATE: Green piece was stirred (and shaken).
