IPT Rebuttal to Electronic Intifida's Revisionism
The pro-Palestinian website Electronic Intifada recently provided a grand example of historic revisionism and the cherry-picking of information to cast CAIR – the Council on American-Islamic Relations – as the victim of a baseless "blacklisting" by the FBI.
The FBI's 2008 decision to cut off non-investigative interaction with CAIR is based on "tenuous" and "flimsy" evidence tying CAIR to a terror-support network in America, writes Charlotte Silver. In an interesting twist, Silver links to court exhibits and other documents posted on the Investigative Project on Terrorism website for background.
By showing she knows how to find the material, Silver betrays her method of mentioning only those documents which advance her argument, while ignoring damning facts which destroy the entire piece.
