What if the American Neo-Nazi Party Explained Judaism To The FBI?

This is probably the worst case of somebody impersonating a "specialist on Islam" to explain anything about Islam to anybody, let alone the FBI.  To have people like Robert Spencer explaining Islam is like having the Propagandist for the American Neo-Nazi Party explaining Judaism to the FBI.

This is the most horrific scenario that one can think of in regards to Anti-Semitism, but it is happening to Muslims in the form of an extremist right wing Islamophobic manner.  This is truly scary to have such a vile openly Muslim Hating individual like Robert Spencer trying to bolster hatred towards Muslims by our own Justice Department!

Robert Spencer himself needs to be investigated by the FBI in regards to his un-constitutional Muslim hating actions and rhetoric.  Robert Spencer promotes the genocide of 1.5 billion people and fights against freedom of religion for Muslims in the USA.  Our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves already because of such un-constitutional hatred of another religion.  This extremist hatred of Muslims can not go unchecked by our Law Enforcement that is here to protect our safety and our rights.  What message is this sending to the Muslim community?

I am truly disgusted by this vile and despicable action by Robert Spencer along with the rest of his vile and despicable actions and rhetoric against Muslims.  His Islamophobic hate is worthy of a medal from Adolf Hitler himself.  It is one thing to voice your opinions about a group of people you hate, such as the way Robert Spencer hates Muslims and would like to see all Muslims dead.  However, it is another thing to explain that same hatred to our Justice Department, FBI, etc.

The Obama Administration needs to do an inquiry on this issue as well as the FBI investigating this vile character of hate.

Criticism

Karen Armstrong wrote in her review of Spencer's books that he writes in hatred, deliberately manipulating evidence to support his thesis.[23]
"When discussing Muhammad’s war with Mecca, Spencer never cites the Koran’s condemnation of all warfare as an ”awesome evil”, its prohibition of aggression or its insistence that only self-defence justifies armed conflict. He ignores the Koranic emphasis on the primacy of forgiveness and peaceful negotiation: the second the enemy asks for peace, Muslims must lay down their arms and accept any terms offered, however disadvantageous. There is no mention of Muhammad’s non-violent campaign that ended the conflict."
"People would be offended by an account of Judaism that dwelled exclusively on Joshua’s massacres and never mentioned Rabbi Hillel’s Golden Rule, or a description of Christianity based on the bellicose Book of Revelation that failed to cite the Sermon on the Mount. But the widespread ignorance about Islam in the West makes many vulnerable to Spencer’s polemic; he is telling them what they are predisposed to hear. His book is a gift to extremists who can use it to ”prove” to those Muslims who have been alienated by events in Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq that the west is incurably hostile to their faith."
Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto called Spencer a "radical intellectual" and accused him of "falsely constructing a divide between Islam and West." Regarding Spencer's blog JihadWatch, she said he uses the Internet to spread misinformation and hatred of Islam and presents a "skewed, one-sided, and inflammatory story that only helps to sow the seed of civilizational conflict."[24]
Dinesh D'Souza, of the conservative Hoover Institution wrote after his debate with Spencer that Spencer downplays the passages of the Quran that urge peace and goodwill to reach one-sided opinions. He further contends that Spencer applies a moral standard to Muslim empires that could not have been met by any European empire.[25]
Robert D. Crane called Spencer's work "superficially scholarly". Spencer inverts Islam's true teachings by omitting text from passage he quotes or by using unreliable and extremist sources.[26][26][27]
Louay M. Safi, Khaleel Mohammed, and Carl Ernst assert that Spencer is an "Islamophobe"[28] who supports preconceived notions through selection bias; they suggest, "he has no academic training in Islamic studies whatsoever; his M.A. degree was in the field of early Christianity".[29][30][31] They have objected to what they describe as Spencer's method of taking a position they deem to be radical (on apostasy, women, etc.) and then attribute that position to all of Islam, rather than situating it within ongoing discussions.[32]
French academic historian, Ivan Jablonka, from École Normale Supérieure in Paris, in his study of similarities between the approaches to Islam of authors like Bat Ye'or, Robert Spencer, David Pryce-Jones and Daniel Pipes[33], argues that, to Spencer, "Islamist fundamentalists drive European politics" to such a point that "Zapatero's victory in Spain after Madrid blasts is presented by Spencer as an ultimate victory of jihadists." Such declarations, according to Jablonka, underline the similarities between Spencer's work and Bat Ye'or's views on "Eurabia." Jablonka notes that Spencer or Bat Ye'or's views lack academic seriousness: their purported historical and interpretative continuity between some data picked up from Middle Age Islamic civilization and modern activism is a political construction poorly substantiated. For Jablonka, writings of authors like Spencer or Bat Ye'or relentlessly intent to designate "new enemies for wars to come"[34].
Among other individuals and groups which have criticized Spencer as unscholarly or bigoted are journalists Cathy Young[35] and Stephen Schwartz (journalist),[36] Professor Khaleel Mohammed,[37] and various organizations such as The Council on American-Islamic Relations,[38] the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee[39] and Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting.[40]     (Reference: Wikipedia)

Robert Dreyfuss: Anti-Muslim Bigot Explains Islam to FBI

Posted on 26 July 2010 by Garibaldi












Robert Dreyfuss
Robert Dreyfuss, contributing editor to the Nation Magazine and also a frequent contributor to Rolling Stone, The American Prospect, and Mother Jones has a great blog post about anti-Muslim bigotRobert Spencer of SIOA-fame training and explaining Islam to the FBI and Tidewater Joint Terrorism Task Force.
This is how Robert Spencer will react: “Robert Dreyfuss is a leftard, dhimmi, who is tarnishing and libeling me!! Wah! Wah!”
Dreyfuss also links to us, and I urge our readers to take time out and comment on Dreyfuss’ blog piece, or at the least thank him for bringing this to light.

Anti-Muslim Bigot and Fanatic Explains Islam to the FBI and the Tidewater Joint Terrorism Task Force

By Robert Dreyfuss
The Council on American Islamic Relations is making noise about the fact that an extremist, right-wing anti-Muslim rabble rouser was “invited to offer training to state and federal law enforcement officers.” It sounds like something that might have happened under the administration of President Bush, but no – this happened on Obama’s watch.
Robert Spencer, co-founder of the group Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA), is the culprit.
According to CAIR, Spencer was called in recently to pontificate to the Tidewater Joint Terrorism Task Force. (The JTTF’s are law enforcement and intelligence coalitions that began Washington. Soon every jurisdiction wanted the federal dough for a JTTF, and after 9/11 the number of JTTF’s exploded.)
Says CAIR:
“Our nation’s law enforcement personnel should not receive training from the head of a hate group that seeks to demonize Islam and to prevent American Muslims from exercising their rights as citizens,’ said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “Robert Spencer is the same individual who claims in his new book that President Obama is waging ‘war on America.’”
He noted that Spencer recently co-authored the book, “The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America,” that sounds a “wake-up call for Americans to stop the Obama administration from limiting our hard-won freedoms, silencing our democratic forming in the 1990s in key areas thought to be vulnerable to terrorism, such as New York and voices, and irreparably harming America for generations to come.”
According to Loonwatch, the SIOA is so extreme that it seems almost satirical. Like a Tea Party phalanx of radical anti-Muslim bigots, the SIOA says that its goal is educate Americans “about about the threat that Islamic doctrine and those who support it present to our freedoms, and the future of our democracy and country.”  Its  organizers call themselves “scholar warriors/ideological warriors in the cause of American freedom and Constitutional government,” as well as in “the defense of… our society of liberty, knowledge, and human decency.”
Spencer’s co-founder, Pamela Geller, is a piece of work, too. Notes CAIR:
“Geller has posted images on her blog that include a fake photograph of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan in a Nazi uniform, another fake image of President Obama urinating on an American flag and drawings purporting to depict Islam’s Prophet Muhammad as a pig. In a June 25 blog entry, Geller posted a video claiming that Muslims engage in bestiality.”
This needs repudiation – or, as Sarah Palin would say, refudiation – from the Justice Department, and quick.
