Smoking gun of Israel government conspiracy against the rights of
Americans: THE ACTUAL EMAIL
Paul Kendall: Did an 'Expert' on Terrorism Conspire With a Foreign
Government to Violate the Constitutional Rights of American Muslims?

WASHINGTON, March 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is an
Op-Ed by Paul Kendall, of Justice and Liberty For All:
Steven Emerson, who has appeared at numerous congressional hearings
and on major news outlets as an alleged 'expert on terrorism,' has
raised some serious concerns among congressional staffers, civil
rights groups, and some members of the media.
E-mail communications made available during lawsuits involving the
building of a mosque in Boston, MA (Boston Lawsuit - ISB David
Project), indicate a collaboration between Emerson and the Israeli
Government. These electronic communications prove that Emerson, along
with some anti-Muslim advocacy groups, worked directly with the public
affairs office of the Israeli consulate in Boston to formulate the
creation of a smear campaign intended to stop the construction of a
new Islamic cultural center.
However, despite these attempts, the new Boston mosque was opened
on September 28, 2007 in the predominantly African-American community
The e-mail messages that prove this collaboration between Emerson, the
consulate, and other anti-Muslim advocacy groups are available to the
public at: http://www.justiceandliberty4all.wordpress.com/_
Emerson, whose credentials, investigative methods, and sources were
once considered to be highly questionable, has managed to position
himself as America's leading 'terrorist expert' after 9/11. However,
there are many within and outside the Muslim Community who question
Emerson's investigation tactics, characterized as 'Islamophobic.'
Some have accused Emerson of pandering to fear because of his
characterization of the Muslim American community, Muslim
organizations, and Muslim leaders as a 'fifth column' working to
subvert the American government and our civil institutions. Many have
gone so far as to suggest that his motives have less to do with
protecting our national security than with being a paid propagandist
for a foreign country.
One congressional staff member stated, "I am seriously troubled that
the public affairs office of the Israeli Consulate would cooperate
with U.S. citizens and advocacy groups seeking to deny American
Muslim's the religious freedom of American Muslims.
The constitutional right to build a new mosque in Boston is a
religious freedom protected by the First Amendment of our
Constitution. And no foreign government has the right to interfere
with this right.'
Interviews with several civil rights activists reveal that there are
serious concerns regarding the accuracy and objectivity of the
information that Emerson provides to members of congress, law
enforcement, and the media.
Civil rights activist and leader Reverend Graylan Hagler, put it this
way: "This Emerson guy uses the same tactics that racist
segregationist used against civil rights activist including Dr. King."
Hagler added, "Emerson may well be our domestic 'curve ball.'" This is
a reference to the Iraqi source that provided inaccurate information
to U.S. intelligence services in the lead-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
I, too, am deeply troubled by the lack of scrutiny that Steve Emerson
and his Investigative Project receive. If the nation learned anything
from the Judith Miller fiasco about weapons of mass destruction in
Iraq, it should be this: It is time to seriously investigate Steve
Emerson and his bogus 'Investigative Project.'
