Is the Wall Street Journal
a Terrorist Front?
According to Bernama, which
is now headed by a close ally of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, an FBI raid
on a Herndon, Virginia, Muslim institute last year found documents
which listed Anwar as a contributor to the institute's quarterly
Is this supposed to be proof
of a terrorist connection? Only in Malaysia, apparently.
Anwar has also written articles
for Newsweek, Time, and the Wall Street Journal, amongst others.
Are they terrorist fronts,
But let's go back to the American
Journal of Islamic Social Sciences (AJISS), the “terrorist” journal
published by the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT)
in Virginia. Among the members of the journal's international advisory
board are such well-known “terrorists” as:
Louis Cantori, Director
of the Center for the Study of Islam & Democracy
Professor John Esposito,
Professor of Islamic Studies at Georgetown University
Amien Rais, the Indonesian
James P. Piscatori, University
Lecturer in Islamic Politics Wadham College, Oxford University
M. Kamal Hassan, Rector
of the International Islamic University, Malaysia
Perhaps we should ask Kalimullah
Hassan and Rita Katz whether these people are also terrorists.
And who was it that appointed
Kamal Hassan as the Rector of Malaysia’s International Islamic University?
Should he not be investigated for terrorist links as well?
