American Traitor In Al Qaeda Threatens Terrorist Expert Steve Emerson

--written from Lyme, N.H.

The effort of Muslim terrorists to scare the West out of freedom of speech can be seen in the report this morning that Adam Gadahn, the traitor from Orange County who has been broadcasting propaganda for Osama bin Laden, has insisted upon the conversion to Islam of Steve Emerson, the U.S. expert on terrorism, and three others.

Emerson says he is taking precautions. After all, such insistence has come against various hostages to the terrorists, who are threatened with death unless they convert. Two Fox newsmen did convert to Islam under duress in order to secure their release from captivity. They rightfully repudiated the conversions when they were freed.

Particularly since the Pope's remarks questioning violence in Islam, there has been a step up of such threats and criminal actions. A Catholic nun was murdered in Somalia shortly after the Pope spoke, and there was another murder of a Catholic priest in Turkey in the furore over Danish cartoons critical of the Prophet Mohammed.

In many cases Muslims take exceptional umbrage against Western critics, but say nothing about suicide bombings, beheadings and other crimes committed by their co-religionists.

But peace and tolerance must be a two way street. If Muslim fundamentalists demand respect, they must give it in return.

There is high handedness at the least in the Minneapolis Muslim taxi drivers who refuse to carry passengers who are carrying bottles of liquor or seeing-eye dogs.

As for Gadahn, he has now been indicted. When he does fall into American custody, as he will, he ought to be made to pay in full for joining the enemy.

more xenophobic claptrap from the bombastic blogger Reich who must live in rigid apprehension of the muslims who might take him for a ride in a taxi cab. Well, this professional flag waver must feel better now that a traitor has been cornered and indicted!!!! Here's hoping that event will prompt him to purge his fear mongering prose.

Emerson, a Jew who gets it
A perspective of a moderate Muslim

At the risk of sounding anti-Semitic, I want to say this: either American Jews are completely clueless about the internal struggle inside Islam or they are so cowardly, that they are even afraid to voice their opinion. Or maybe it's a combination of both.

Every time there is a development that involves radical Islam, be it a Mayor of New York attending an Islamist parade, DOJ's officials attending an Islamist conference, or a protester being sued for having the balls to expose an Islamist-sponsored event at an amusement park, the American Jewish community is as quiet as a church mouse. It's like it is not even there.

The effect of this silence is devastating. Not for the Jewish community, not yet. That time is still to come. The silence affects the American Muslim community. Every time moderate Muslims are ignored and Islamists are legitimized (by either direct support from government representatives or silent support of the ADL), radicals gain ground. In the current PC climate, moderate Muslims have pretty much no choice but to keep their mouths shut.

Luckily for us, not everyone in the Jewish community is like that. There are some Jews that are speaking out. One of them is Steven Emerson, who has been warning the West about the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism since before PanAm 103. Most of his current work is focused on exposing the radicals masquerading as the moderates – those radicals who are embraced by the DOJ and the Pentagon, by the mayor of New York Bloomberg (Rudy would never get into bed with terrorist supporters) and the Treasury Department, by the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security, by the Congress and the White House.

There is a war of ideas within Islam, and moderate Muslims are losing. Most of Muslim clergy and Muslim establishment are paid for by the Wahhabis. Moderate Muslims are being run out of Mosques and community centers, and in many cases are physically threatened. Moderate Muslims have no place in the media or public debate, because the place reserved for Muslims is filled by Islamic radicals, who attempt to make criticizing anything Islamic a taboo. According to the Islamists, a Muslim can do no wrong.
1. When a non-Muslim criticizes Islam or Muslims, he/she is an Islamophobe.
2. When a Muslim criticizes Islam or Muslim, he/she is not a real Muslim, therefore see #1.

This is a tactic used by "moderate" Muslims, the darlings of the government and the media. But how can you call someone who praises bin Laden, or has ties to Hamas, or calls for the elimination of Israel, or wants to replace the Constitution with the Koran a moderate? They are anything but moderates, however nobody except for a few people like Steven Emerson seems to notice that. But even when the Emersons of America appeal to the public, they are often being dismissed as alarmists and racists. Well, they are anything, but. You don't have to be a clairvoyant to predict the future when it comes to expansion of radical Islam and extinction of moderate Muslims. All you need to do is get your heads out of the sand.

Why our government is so forgiving and forgetful when it comes to individuals or organizations with known terrorist ties and anti-American views is beyond me. Why the Jewish leaders are so timid when it comes to the subject of radical Islam is incomprehensible.

I thank God every day for people like Steven Emerson, because they are the last glimmer of hope for moderate Muslims.
