Jihad Watch reader Al tells me that he got into an exchange on the Insurance Journal website (you just never know where jihad will come up) in which he mentioned Jihad Watch. This was the response from a poster there named Ali:
Spencer Katz of jihadwatch is a leading fundraiser for the JDL and affiliated hate groups.
Every time I think I’ve heard everything, somebody comes up with another one. For the record, there is no “Spencer Katz” who has anything to do with Jihad Watch. I don’t know anyone named Spencer Katz at all. Maybe Ali meant me, but my name isn’t Katz. And neither I nor anyone else at Jihad Watch has ever raised any money for the JDL. Nor has anyone here raised any money for any hate group.
Al told Ali this, but of course he was unconvinced:
of course he would deny it, as Spencer Katz has been discredited by every respected news organization in Europe.
So what of Spencer Katz, the JDL fundraising machine? He is just another example of the fact that those who oppose my work will say anything, no matter how outlandish and false. But for my part, I’m just going to keep telling the truth. Which, of course, is what makes them crazy.
