David J. Rusin

Islamist Watch Research Fellow

MEF Wires

David J. Rusin investigates and combats nonviolent radical Islam in the United States and other Western countries for Islamist Watch. His research has highlighted the dangers posed by Islamist-leaning individuals with government security clearances, debunked the myth that American Muslims are more likely than other minorities to suffer hate crimes, and tracked the progress of Philadelphia's "black Muslim enclave." He has been the curator of Islamist Watch's extensive news archive for more than half a decade and previously served as the project's director. Prior to joining the Forum, Mr. Rusin worked as an astrophysicist. He also spent two years as the Philadelphia editor at PJ Media
