Speaker at Emory defends Hizballah and Hamas

And the Leftist thugs who shouted down David Horowitz were nowhere in evidence, of course. Not that they would have wanted to turn out to protest a speech by an apologist for jihad terror — and meanwhile, Emory’s President James Wagner pretended that conservative students were just as likely to behave like fascist thugs as […]

EU subsidizing anti-Israel groups

Evil bloggers, including Jihad Watch, force new Cleveland imam to resign!

Not really, of course. I never called for him to resign, much less force him to do so. I did call attention to things that he admits to having said. But AP, characteristically, puts the blame on Jihad Watch and Patrick Poole, as if we trumped up the charges. Just imagine if an anti-jihadist made […]
