Islamist Influence in Hollywood
by Deborah Weiss
Americans are clearly alarmed about Islamic terrorists who are encouraging and spreading violence across the globe, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as relentlessly threatening violence to the United States. So readers might be surprised to learn that organizations which sympathize and associate with jihadists are yielded a major say over what the film industry says about Islam and Muslims.
Hollywood, for instance, regularly capitulates to The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on how to portray Muslims, even though many in CAIR's leadership are sympathetic to Islamic terrorists. As Steve Pomerantz, the FBI's former Chief of Counterterrorism, has bluntly stated: "CAIR, its leaders, and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups."
