Walid Shoebat - Hero or snake oil salesman

in response to reader comment: Walid Shoebat - hero or snakeoil salesman?

Walid tries to point out that Palestinian children today are brainwashed to kill Jews in a similar fashion as the Hitler youth was in Nazi Germany. The connection between Hitler and the great Mufti of Jerusalem is a historical fact, documented with photos. Maybe your cousin was shocked because he didn't know this?

He is not the only Arab to stand up for Israel. There are others who say the same. Some of them are also Christians.

Why would a Christian stand up for Israel? Well – maybe because Jesus was an Israeli Jew? Christians also believe that their Messiah is going to return to Jerusalem in Israel. How could a Christian truly love Jesus and at the same time hate his Jewish brethren?

The problem as I see it, Sir, is that many Americans do not fully understand that Islamic extremists have in fact declared war on the West. Their goal is openly stated on Arabic TV, they want to kill all the Jews and wipe Israel off the map.

Do you honestly think Walid would risk his life to tell you that?
