Silencing Critics of Islamic Extremism
by Daniel Greenfield
In a staggering expose, the Center for American Progress has released a 130-page report revealing that organizations which investigate Islamic radicalism are funded by money, not sunshine. One of the report's authors, Faiz Shakir, was immediately invited to come on Keith Olbermann's show to discuss this amazing discovery.
The Center for American Progress' campaign for donor transparency, however, stops at its own doors. While its own budget is many times that of the organizations that its report targets — the CAP's policy is to keep the identities of its own donors secret.
The CAP report attempts to suppress dialogue on Islamic terrorism with the charge of Islamophobia, but the center itself is part of a conservaphobia and Israelphobia network. An industry that pays quite well, as its annual budgets in the tens of millions show.
