More than 100 "religious" leaders appeared at a "interfaith" conference in Geneva this week to promote "religious dialogue". Conference attendees included such American Muslim notables as CAIR national board chairman Larry Shaw and Georgetown professor John Esposito.
What is troubling, however, is that the sponsor of the conference, the Saudi-backed Muslim World League (MWL) was the subject of a report issued two weeks ago by the Anti-Defamation League that noted the the monthly journal published by MWL recently featured a cover story about the Jewish control of the media. As the report states:
The May 2009 issue of The Muslim World League Journal, which is distributed worldwide, features a shocking cover story propagating conspiracy theories about Jewish control of media. The phrase 'Control of World Media' appears on the cover next to a large blue and white baseball cap - adorned with the Star of David - sitting atop a globe.
The cover story, titled "Six Companies Control the World's Media," appears to be an updated version of an article widely circulated on anti-Semitic Web sites for several years. Based on an original piece written by William Pierce, the former head of the neo-Nazi National Alliance, the article names individuals heading media companies with the epithet 'Jew' or 'Jewess,' reads:
One might conclude that the sheer number of different newspapers across America would provide a safeguard against Jewish control and distortion. However, this is not the case…it also illustrates the insatiable appetite Jews have shown for all the organs of opinion control on which they could fasten their grip.
The article claims that American newspapers "are so thoroughly dependent upon Jewish adverting revenue that their editorial and news reporting policies and largely constrained by Jewish likes and dislikes."
Oh, but there's more. As the Investigative Project pointed out yesterday, one of the Christian representatives attending the Geneva conference this week is none other than William Baker, the former chairman of the neo-Nazi Populist Party. The IPT report explains:
Baker was also chairman of the "Populist Party" -- founded by neo-Nazi Willis Carto in 1984 -- organizing its national convention that year. Carto, a founder of the American Nazi party, also started the Southern California-based Institute for Historical Review, a group whose central purpose is to deny the Holocaust. While serving as national chairman of the Populist Party in 1984, Baker allegedly introduced a platform which would have allowed states to restore Jim Crow racial laws.
Baker's record of anti-Semitic speech cements his disturbing resume. Baker has been quoted saying that Jews are not the "chosen of God," [viii] and that he dreads getting off a plane in New York: "God help me. Why? 'Cause the first people I meet when I get off the plane are pushy, belligerent American Jews."
In his book The Theft of a Nation, Baker writes that the "Zionist state of Israel . . . should be dismantled and eventually eliminated."
If the liztards over at the Little Green Gulag really want to get riled up about bona fide racism, this would be a good place to start. But don't hold your breath.
