Shillman Journalism Fellow outlines how the Left’s culture of fear and intimidation silences America.
Last week Piers Morgan, who has replaced Larry King on CNN, interviewed Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. While it is good for Truth to speak to Power, it is always discouraging to listen to someone who is supposed to be informed display by his line of questioning that he has, at a minimum, been completely hoodwinked by the Palestinian Myth Machine which couches its narrative as a peaceful people wrongfully dispossessed of their historic birthright and shamefully treated by hostile occupiers.
Sunlight, said Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, is the best disinfectant. Obviously, not enough of it has been shed in order for our Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, to conclude that the Muslim Brotherhood is a subversive organization and the parent of al-Qaeda and Hamas, which has sponsored or encouraged nearly every Islamic terrorist attack made against America and the West since it was created in 1928.
Unable to defeat Israel on the battlefield or intimidate her by decades of terror her Muslim tormentors have anxiously turned to a different strategy. In defiance of the mountains of historical and archeological facts, let alone the biblical evidence, they have embarked on a strenuous effort to turn history upside down and wage a campaign to prove that Israel and the Jews have no legal right to the Land of Israel and that it should always have been a land over which Islamic supremacists hold dominion.
