Just in from our top contributor and administrator Dan Miller !
I look forward to Clarion’s response to the Spencer hit piece. Thank you for the heads-up.
I had sent a similar request to AIFD and hope for a response from Dr. Jasser as well. As noted in my request to AIFD, I am an editor of Warsclerotic, an aggregation blog published in Israel and started by Joseph Wouk (the son of Herman Wouk, author of Caine Mutiny, Don’t Stop the Carnival, etc). I stated that I would like to publish Dr. Jasser’s response.
After I had sent my e-mails, another editor at Warsclerotic (there are three of us), who goes by the nom de plume “Joop,” posted an ad hominem hit piece by Pamela Geller to the same effect as Robert Spencer’s. Here’s a link:
Following the article, “Joop” also linked and commented favorably on Spencer’s article.
When I saw the article and comment at Warsclerotic, I seriously considered resigning as an editor because I was embarrassed to be associated with a site that publishes such trash; I am not aware of any previous such incident at Warsclerotic.
I am sending blind copies of this e-mail to the other editors, in the hope that the Geller article will be taken down. I have posted many of Dr. Jasser’s YouTube videos and interviews; “Joop” has commented on each to the effect that “a mooslime is a mooslime is a mooslime” — i.e., the are all the same and reformers are either lying or are not “real” Muslims. Before giving further thought to resigning, however, I would like to publish your response to the Spencer and perhaps the Geller article and, should AIFD provide one, it as well.
Thank you and Clarion for your excellent work supporting the Muslim Reform Movement. President Trump is in a position to replace CAIR and other Islamist groups in the “countering violent extremism” program with AIFD and perhaps Clarion project. I very much hope that he does.
