American Liberals and Iranian Mullahs Peddle Fear
by David Horowitz and Robert Spencer
In late August, the Center for American Progress issued a 130-page pamphlet called Fear Inc.: The Roots of the Islamphobia Network in America. It was filled with inaccuracy, misrepresentation and slander against American critics of Muslim extremism, especially those who have pointed out the efforts to make "Islamophobia," a coinage of the Muslim Brotherhood, a "thought crime," thereby silencing those who discuss Islamist violence against women, murder of homosexuals, etc. That this publication came from a George Soros-backed organization such as the CAP, deeply networked with leading figures in the Democratic Party establishment, rather than from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) or one of its other front groups, was a tremendous victory for the Muslim Brotherhood and its effort to kill free speech on Islamic issues. That the report was conceived of as a weapon in the attack on America was proven by the fact that its "findings" were immediately trumpeted by the Islamic Republic of Iran and reprinted by its state-run propaganda agency. The new section in our pamphlet, Islamophobia: Thought Crime of the Totalitarian Future, deals with this phenomenon. It is printed below:
