3. About Kevin James Barrett Iran Apologist
listed by the Anti-Defamation League as one of the leading promoters of anti-Semitic 9/11 conspiracy theories.  Barrett, who spouts the usual Jewish blood libels, has asserted that the United States and Israel have pushed a genocidal war on Islam and targeted Muslims worldwide.  In the video, he claims to have contact with 9/11 Truthers and Nation of Islam (NOI) members.  Barrett recommends that the group focus on involving African-Americans and notes that NOI is ‘one of the best organized groups out there.’  He refers to Louis Farrakhan and his close relationship with Imam Siraj Wahhaj, a radical Islamist member of CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing who advocates the replacement of the U.S. government with an Islamic caliphate under sharia.”

5. America's Survival: Washington Post Denies Muslim Brotherhood Behind Attacks on Christians
It is simply disgraceful that the Post editorial writer would base a conclusion of no Muslim Brotherhood involvement in anti-Christian violence on a statement from an anonymous official that flies in the face of all the evidence. No wonder Egyptian-Americans protested outside the paper’s headquarters.
Kristen Chick, Cairo correspondent for The Christian Science Monitor, found more evidence that somehow escaped the notice of the Post.
Here’s what she reported: “At the camp of Morsi supporters near Cairo’s Rabaa El Adawiya square, organized by the Muslim Brotherhood, some speakers on the protest’s stage railed against Christians and their ‘betrayal’ of Egypt. Attacks against Christians spread throughout Egypt, particularly in southern Egypt where the Christian population is large and sectarian violence common.” (emphasis added).
Chick noted that an August 7 statement from 16 Egyptian rights organizations condemned “the rhetoric employed by leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and their allies which includes clear incitement to violence and religious hatred in order to achieve political gains, regardless of the grave repercussions of such rhetoric for peace in Egypt.”
A subsequent statement by nine other Egyptian rights organizations said, “the Muslim Brotherhood has decided to pursue political violence and terrorism for the time being; instead of engaging in self-criticism and recognizing its failure to maintain the trust of citizens who voted for it, the group seeks to spur the country toward a civil war, a possibility that first reared its head in November” (emphasis added).
“In December,” the statement said, “MB supporters killed their political opponents and tortured others, while Brotherhood leaders began fomenting anti-Christian sectarian incitement. The anti-Coptic incitement and threats continued unabated up to the demonstrations of June 30 and, with the removal of President Morsy on July 3, morphed into sectarian violence, which was sanctioned by the MB, both by their complicit silence and refusal to condemn these crimes and by the continued anti-Coptic rhetoric heard from the group’s leaders on the stage at Rabia al-Adawiya throughout the sit-in…” (emphasis added).
Chick also noted that what appeared to be the authentic Facebook page for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party in Helwan, south of Cairo, listed accusations against the church, before concluding: “After all this people ask why they burn churches.” The page noted that “burning houses of worship is a crime,” but added: “For every action, there is a reaction.”
Raymond Ibrahim, author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam's New War in Christiansreports that  al-Qaeda’s Egyptian leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, a former Brotherhood member, portrayed the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi and the Brotherhood as a “Crusader” campaign led by Coptic Pope Tawadros II.
He said, “The Islamic terrorist organization’s incitement against the Copts is just the latest emanating from Islamists—from the top of the Brotherhood leadership to the bottom of the ‘Muslim street’—and is creating something of an ‘open season’ on Egypt’s Christians.”

Accuracy in Media


The media have been given important new information in the case of NSA leaker Edward Snowden and don’t seem to know what to do with it. Snowden has been “outed” by the Russians as their agent.
The Washington Post reports that “Before American fugitive Edward Snowden arrived in Moscow in June—an arrival that Russian officials have said caught them by surprise—he spent several days living at the Russian Consulate in Hong Kong, a Moscow newspaper reported Monday.”
In other words, the Russians were in on the deception all along. It was an example of what the old Soviet KGB called “disinformation.” The Russians wanted people to believe that Snowden was a whistleblower desperately searching for a place to go.
Remember that Russian President Vladimir Putin, a former KGB officer, had even said that if Snowden wanted to stay in Russia, he would have to “stop his activities aimed at inflicting damage to our American partners…” Putin said this sounded “strange” coming from “my lips,” as if he really was concerned about protecting America’s interests.
It was one lie on top of another.
“Until now, Russian officials have said that Snowden’s arrival in Moscow was a surprise, and not entirely welcome,” the Post said. Putin said, “It is true that Mr. Snowden arrived in Moscow, which was completely unexpected for us.”
It was not “unexpected,” since Snowden had been living at the Russian consulate. Snowden sought Russian help and the Russians gave it to him. He became a defector, a Russian agent.
“If true,” CBS News reported, “this would suggest greater Russian involvement in Snowden’s efforts to escape American justice than President Vladimir Putin’s government has acknowledged.” No kidding.
Putin was deceiving the West until they could get their hands on Snowden in Moscow.
These revelations are further evidence of how the Russians play the American media—and some Americans—like violins. It is the subject of the new book, Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism.
The Russian paper’s report is confirmation of the fact that Putin lied through his teeth about Snowden’s relationship with Russia and is now boasting about carrying out this monumental deception.
Some liberals are waking up. Progressive analyst Spandan Chakrabarti writes, “Curious choice, don’t you think, for the paragon of government transparency to show up and seek help from one of the most secretive, pro-spying, anti-free speech and anti-free press governments on earth?”
The blogger went on, “Given Snowden’s contact with the Russians well before he arrived at Moscow, to what extent is the pretend-whistleblower a cover for someone who perhaps was actually interested in selling American intelligence to Russia? This is an even more pertinent question, since RT—the Kremlin-funded ‘news’ agency—has been particularly supportive of Snowden. When the global propaganda arm of the Russian government takes up your cause, it means that you’re valuable to Russia, and the only question is how that ‘value’ is subject to being ‘cashed in.’”
Referring to the colors of the Russian flag, he concluded, “I guess Snowden is red, white, and blue after all, just of some different stripes.”
