Robert Spencer, Caroline Glick, Daniel Silva & Jim Hanson
In his 1,500 page manifesto, Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik outlined his desire for partnerships with jihadists, as well as singled out those people he felt unjustly persecuted his fellow extremists. One of the people blamed in his declaration for the oppression of Muslims was Robert Spencer, a prominent author and the director of Jihad Watch. Robert joins Frank to discuss how the media continues to insist that his resistance to jihadist activities fuels anti-Muslim sentiments.
Next, Senior Fellow at the Center for Security Policy and expert on the Middle East, Caroline Glick discusses how to bridge the differences between 1st Amendment rights and the Organization of the Islamic Conference’s desire to suppress any sort of free expression against all Muslims. She also gives us her take on anti-democratic followers of Sharia law and their violent methods to achieve with a gun what they cannot achieve with federal laws.
New York Times #1 best-selling author, Daniel Silva then gives Secure Freedom Radio an inside look into his new spy novel, Portrait of a Spy. He details how the CIA recruits his main character, Gabriel Allon to mount an operation against an American-born imam. Ironically, the situation played out in Silva’s novel directly parallels the life of Anwar al-Awlaki.
Lastly, regular guest; Jim Hanson gives us his “boots on the ground” perspective on the terrorist attack on Norway and how Anders Breivik meticulously planned out his attack for almost nine years.
From Today’s Show Prep:
Earlier this week, Palestinian leaders approached the UN General Assembly to acknowledge a formal declaration of independence from Israel. Although officially blocked by the General Assembly, Palestinians believe that if they continue to push for independence, Israeli control of Palestinian area will unravel.
In Daniel Silva’s newest adventure, Gabriel Allon takes on a new adversary—a global jihadist and American born cleric from Yemen. His story reflects the current situation of the American born imam, Anwar al-Awlaki who Silva considers the world’s most dangerous terrorist.
