  1. Richard, read this please. It is dated November 2011


    Al-Awlaki, born in New Mexico to Yemeni parents, previously served as the imam of mosques in Denver, San Diego and Falls Church, Virginia. Two of those mosques were attended by three of the September 11 hijackers. Al-Awlaki left the U.S. in 2002 after he was questioned by the FBI about the September 11 terrorist attacks.

    ^^^^ Abe Foxman had this news last November. I am sure the news was around before that too. Yep, October 2010


    I think you should ask why Fox News is reporting old news.

    1. What’s new is that the U.S. detained al Awlaki when he returned to the U.S. and then let him go. Presumably because he had agreed to become an informant or was considering it (that’s my interpretation of the events).

  2. “withholding permission for medical treatment unless they agree to become Israeli spies”.
    What a barefaced liar you are, Silverstein.

    1. The only liar here is you:

      Bassam al-Wahedi, 26, a tall, soft-spoken journalist…had gone blind in one eye because of a retinal illness, and surgery at a Jerusalem hospital was his only hope of regaining sight in that eye. Since Gaza is denied all but basic humanitarian needs under an international boycott of Hamas, many complicated surgeries are no longer done there.

      His eye bandaged, al-Wahedi set off through the innards of Erez’s security maze. He fumbled along tunnels, steel doors that opened and slammed as he passed along, entered a strange cylinder that fired a whoosh of air at him before he finally reached a large hall with an Israeli soldier sitting inside a bulletproof glass booth. Al-Wahedi showed his permit, explaining that he was due in surgery at 3:30 pm that afternoon.

      Next, says al Wahedi, three plainclothed Israelis with pistols and walkie-talkies led him past cages with growling dogs to a room where he was strip searched and interrogated by a man who identified himself as a captain in Shin Bet, the Israeli domestic intelligence agency. Al-Wahedi claims that his interrogator told him in fluent Arabic: “We want you to work for us.” When al-Wahedi protested, saying he had nothing to do with the militants, the Shin Bet officer allegedly replied: “We issue the [medical] permits and we can cancel them. If you don’t get operated on, you’ll lose your sight. What good will you be?”

      “I told him that we would talk after my operation, when I crossed back through Erez,” recounts al-Wahedi. Nothing doing, replied the intelligence officer, who, according to al-Wahedi, handed him an Israeli cellphone SIM card and a phone number. “He wanted me to go back to Gaza and collaborate with them for two weeks, and if they liked what I did, I could come to Israel and have my eye operation with the best doctor in Tel Aviv.”

      This fact is so well-known & widely reported that your claim that it is a lie shows that you are ignorant. Not to mention offensive.
