Atlanta TV News Covers Jamaat ul-Fuqra

The Muslims of America are now being featured in a WSB-TV investigative report. A reader called Georgia Kafir sent me an email last night with this report:

The Muslims of AmericaI’m not sure if you are already aware of this, but WSB-TV Channel 2 here in Atlanta ran an ‘investigative’ segment about JuF on their 6:00 news tonight. I recorded the segment and put it up on YouTube. I must say that I am pleased to see people like Martin Mawyer, Steve Emerson and Paul Williams on local TV in Atlanta! Their message is finally getting out!

The report was fair, but since Atlanta news sources more or less dictate the local news for the rest of the state, I’m sure many people have never heard of this group’s connection with Daniel Pearl, the DC Snipers, etc… Hopefully the good citizens Wayne and Franklin counties will keep a more watchful eye on the MOA.

I have a timer set for tomorrow’s report as well.

Thank goodness for alert readers! Here’s the YouTube video of the program:

A video of the same broadcast is also available at the WSB-TV website.

This is the first time I’ve heard Sheikh Gilani’s voice, or seen clips from Martin’s JuF terrorist training video. The WSB report is the best TV report on the Muslims of America that I have seen thus far. It presents a summary of the extensive history of violence for which Jamaat ul-Fuqra is responsible, and a balanced presentation of the available evidence for their connection with violent jihad.

By the way — notice that Sheikh Gilani says on the MOA DVD, “We forbid Muslims to kill innocent people.” For those of us who are familiar with the idiosyncratic terminology of the Great Jihad, this is an exact echo of Anjem Chaudry, a radical British Muslim, as given in an interview on British television.

To recapitulate Mr. Chaudry’s position: an orthodox Muslim, using a strict and literal reading of the Koran, does not believe that any infidels are innocent. Only Muslims can be considered innocent people.

Thus, Sheikh Gilani’s bland reassurances of peaceful intent mean precisely… NOTHING.

  1. the “innocent people” remark caught my attention immediately. We’ve been listening to jihadists too long not to know the code by now.

    Kafircons are definitely not innocent. Neither are their children or animals.

  2. So true. Here in America, we have CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations). It is absolutely impossible to make the slightest comment (I’m not even saying ‘criticism’) on the latest Islamofascist crime without CAIR jumping down everyone’s throat, screeching “discrimination!” “bigots!” “racism!” etc. They constantly bleat about how they are victims of hatred and discrimination. Which of course they are NOT, seeing as how they effectively squash criticism by the above-mentioned method.

    It would be comical if it wasn’t so scary.

  3. 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.
