The Center for American Progress is the extraordinarily well-funded and anti-Semitic hard-Left organization that published a highly deceptive and misleading report on the Muslim Brotherhood concept "Islamophobia," defaming numerous people who are trying to defend freedom and Constitutional principles. And now the New York Times' Useful Idiot Thomas Friedman joins them to attribute the "Arab Spring" Islamic supremacist uprisings to "the long-term trends in precipitation, agriculture, food prices, and migration." Jihad doctrine and the ideology of Islamic supremacism? Pah! What could that have had to do with it? And what about the Crusades?
"ADVISORY: Tom Friedman and Anne-Marie Slaughter on Climate Change and the Arab Spring," from the Center for American Progress, February 22 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):
Washington, D.C. — Please join the Center for American Progress, the Center for Climate & Security, and the Stimson Center on Thursday, February 28, for the release of a new volume on “Climate Change and the Arab Spring.” Panelists Tom Friedman, Anne-Marie Slaughter, and Michael Werz will parse out these complex interactions and discuss the implications for U.S. foreign and development policy.
The volume outlines the complex pressures exerted by the effects of climate change on the convulsions which swept through the Middle East in 2010 and 2011, exploring the long-term trends in precipitation, agriculture, food prices, and migration which contributed to the social instability and violence which has transformed the region, and offering solutions for progress.
