Rosa Flores of CNN did a segment on AFDI’s jihad awareness ads last night on CNN Tonight. Flores was pleasantly evenhanded.
CNN Tonight is hosted by Don Lemon. For those who have wondered why Camerota was cut from FOX News, this segment provides ample evidence. Camerota made co-host Don Lemon look balanced and thoughtful.
Watch the video.
The segment on the ads was, on balance, somewhat fair — considering that this is CNN. Hamas-CAIR is typically quoted. They are not identified as unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history. Or that so many CAIR leaders are serving prison time for jihad-terror crimes.
The ads were shown repeatedly, which is the objective. Getting the message out to those who never hear or see the truth is why we do what we do.
The debate that followed was libelous and defamatory. Hate-filled troll Mubin Sheikh went on a jihad of his own, spewing poison and outrageous lies. The “extremist hate creature” (to use his words) said I was responsible for the murder of children. Piling lie on top of libel, Mubin insisted I inspired Anders Breivik. He said Breivik quoted me repeatedly. Breivik never quoted me and was not inspired by my work. Breivik repeatedly said he was inspired by al Qaeda and Hamas. Breivik was a Nazi who admitted that his entire “manifesto” was intended solely to discredit the counter-jihad movement once he committed his murders. (http://expo.se/2014/breivik-
Interesting how Muslim supremacists want to tie me to the actions of a singular madman (where there is no tie) but refuse to tie the actions of millions of jihadists to jihad.
Daveed Gartenstein-Ross was there to counter but did little of anything except fill up the screen with his unremarkable suit. Mealy-mouthed and somewhat confused, Gartenstein-Ross babbled on quite a bit, saying little. I don’t expect these trimmers on the right to defend me, but I do expect anyone with any intellectual honestly to defend the truth.
CNN must issue a retraction of Mubin Sheikh’s blood libel.
As for the notorious Shaikh’s absurd contention that I am “cherrypicking the Qur’an” — are millions of jihadists cherry-picking the Qur’an?
He insisted that Qur’an 47:4 “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” is Allah speaking to the angels — which is true of another beheading verse, Qur’an 8:12, but not this one. No one questioned him on this, or why millions of jihadists invoke it to do the unspeakable.
Watch this debate between Shaikh and Robert Spencer, scholar of Islam: here.
I could go on, but that’s not the point. I should have been able to respond to his vicious lies.
I am not running that portion of the segment and giving that cretin air.
