What a pile of falsification of facts!

Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"
in response to reader comment: Walid Shoebat - hero or snakeoil salesman?

Submitted by Waell Murray (United States), Feb 11, 2007 at 22:53

I found about this guy while surfing the net and was so astonished to hear his comments on CNN. and the more I listen, the less I believe any thing he says. If he indeed was jailed for acts of terror in Jerusalem by the Israeli authorities, how could he have obtained a clean criminal record to submit his immigration visa application to the US Consulate?

later on he claims that he conducted terroristic activities in the US. O'K, let's believe his claim for a second, but, can he give one particular incident where he was actively involved in one act? can he mention a name of one other person he collaborated with in such operation?.
Shoebat, in my recollections isn't a Palestinian last name, so what is his real last name? And now, would Mr Shoebat tell us about a planned terroristic operation that we should expect to take place in future? The PLO is no longer under cover and people who once were secretly involved with the organization are now living freely in this world, can he name a couple that are still with the PLO today in order to make his stories credible?

It's a fact that any one can capitalize on the America's ability to take a controvercial issue and dwell on it by reading about it and it's becoming rather pocket filling selling stories to the American people. I can think of a couple of things to write books about, some outrageous ideas that I'm sure would sell on the book's shelves in America quite well, wealth building craze, but, without any human morals what so ever.
Mr. Shoebat can appeal to the media in the USA because they are in the selling business, but those who are interested in the truth and nothing but the truth will find him quite boring.
