The New Axis of Evil (or Comedy): CAIR, JVP and the Huffington Post
by Steven Emerson
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has finally found a Jewish group it likes.
At its annual banquet on Dec. 17, CAIR gave its new "Defender of Liberty" award to Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP).
The Huffington Post ran the original story about this award, continuing its long tradition of running apologias for radical Islamist and Muslim Brotherhood front groups all over the United States as well as promoting virulent anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
In 2012, the Huffington Post UK even hired Mehdi Hasan, a radical Islamist who has also proposed a one-state solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict – one which would lead to the slaughter of the new Jewish minority. He also was once caught on video calling non-Muslims "animals:" Hasan called on Muslims to keep "the moral high ground," adding: "Once we lose the moral high ground we are no different from the rest, of the non-Muslims, from the rest of those human beings who live their lives as animals, bending any rule to fulfill any desire." And he nefariously blamed Israeli influence for the war in Iraq. David Duke would be proud of the Huffington Post.
