We get a steady stream of hate mail, but we also occasionally receive messages like this one, which I publish with the sender’s permission because it is a welcome indication that, contrary to appearances, the Justice Department is not entirely compromised and in thrall to deceptive Islamic supremacists:
Subject: Thank you from an avid reader
Message: To Robert Spencer and Hugh Fitzgerald, and the rest of the Jihad Watch writers and researchers…Thank you. I am not sure if you get these messages often, though I think you should, but this message is just to say thank you for everything you do.
My name is [redacted], and I am a 9 year veteran federal agent for the United States Department of Justice. As you all know, it has become incredibly difficult in my position to speak the truth, especially when it comes to Islam. I just want to say that because of scholars like Robert Spencer, Hugh Fitzgerald, Raymond Ibrahim, Daniel Greenfield etc…I will never be afraid to speak the truth against evil. I am eternally grateful for the knowledge all of you have instilled in me and will continue to fight to speak against this evil ideology, even if it means that my job is on the line. Truth comes before all, and thank you for teaching me that. Stay safe always.
