Re: Who is "Ibrahim Hooper"

Reader comment on item: CAIR: 'Moderate' friends of terror

Submitted by Michael Joyce (United States), May 3, 2002

I have had occasion, over the last week or so, to pose that exact question, and others, to Mr. Hooper. I have been unsuccessful in getting any response other than threats of "legal action" should I not refrain from "harassing" him via email. He has also initiated what I believe is a futile campaign to pressure my ISP to intervene on his behalf, thereby sparing him the trauma of receiving critical email messages from me.

I find it amusingly ironic that, although Mr. Hooper seems quite the firebrand when "wrestling" with Mr. Pipes, and others, during his frequent media appearances, he is, apparently, quite the delicate flower when similarly confronted via email, where he is deprived of his standard "debating" style; interrupt, insult, obfuscate and pontificate.

I would appreciate hearing from other "admirers" of Mr. Hooper, especially regarding similar experiences you may have had with him or his organization.
