Are Media’s ‘Muslim Spokesmen’ Even Muslims?
By Keith Johnson
Obama wants your guns, and he’s determined to get his hands on them no matter what kind of dirty tricks he has to pull. If that means deploying fake al Qaeda actors to read from a script and perform in a slick, choreographed, Hollywood-esque anti-gun commercial—so be it.
The latest propaganda couldn’t be more obvious. In a video that surfaced on June 4 entitled Do Not Rely on Others: Take the Task Upon Yourself, American-born Jew turned Islamo bogeyman Adam Gadahn (aka Adam Pearlman) calls on Muslims living in the U.S. to stockpile weapons for lone wolf-style attacks on American and Zionist targets.
Sporting a disheveled beard and dressed in stereotypical Arab garb, Gadahn looks like something straight out of central casting. At one point during this nearly two-hour presentation, the scene cuts from Gadahn to professional footage of an unidentified American gun show. His narration continues in voiceover as he says, “America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check, and most likely without having to show an identification card.”
If Gadahn is supposed to be the savvy leader of radical Islam, as the mainstream media would have us believe, he’s certainly dropped the ball on this one. So-called violent jihadists who take his lead will be disappointed to learn that U.S. gun laws strictly prohibit the sale of fully automatic assault rifles without a class 3 federal firearms license. But then again, Gadahn has no real followers, and his intended audience is not U.S.
Muslims. Instead, Gadahn’s words are intended to stoke the fears of gullible Americans who fear Muslims, guns or both.
This most recent video comes just days after the U.S. Department of Justice held the first in a series of meetings to explore new ways for the Obama administration to bypass congressional oversight and enact severely restrictive gun control regulation by executive order.
Last April, The Washington Post reported on a meeting between White House press secretary Jim Carney and anti-gun activists Jim and Sarah Brady. During that meeting, Obama allegedly dropped in and told Mrs. Brady that the issue of gun control was very much on his agenda.
“I want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
Gadahn was born Adam Pearlman. His father, Phil, was a fairly well known musician who was heavily involved in the psychedelic music scene during the 1960s, but the family name was changed from Pearlman to Gadahn by his father in reference to Gideon, the biblical guerrilla warrior who defeated Israel’s enemies.
In 1995, Adam moved in with his grandparents in Santa Ana, Calif. His grandfather was Dr. Carl Pearlman, a prominent urologist and a former board member of the Anti Defamation League (ADL) whom colleagues have described as a secular Jew and a strong supporter of Israel. It was here that Adam is said to have become interested in Islam after supposedly discovering it on the Internet. He converted to Sunni Islam at the age of 17 and is described as a “homegrown” terrorist, meaning that he is willing to harm his own country in defense of his ideology.
Adam is said to have made a pilgrimage to Pakistan shortly after his conversion. If true, Gadahn managed to align himself with the mythical CIA creation known as al Qaeda, and in an extraordinarily short period of time rose through the ranks to become the group’s senior operative, cultural interpreter, spokesman, media advisor and one of Osama bin Laden’s most trusted right-hand men.
Since 2004, Gadahn has appeared in more than a dozen videos spewing the most vicious, provocative and fiery rhetoric against Western leaders and those he describes as “Zio-crusaders.” In 2006, Gadahn was indicted on charges of treason and material support to a terrorist organization. He is currently on the FBI’s most wanted list.
Gadahn joins a long list of contemporary and historic Jewish operatives who have assumed the identity of Muslims in order to carry out covert operations that were later blamed on Islam. The most notorious example is the 1954 false flag event known as the Lavon Affair, wherein Israeli operatives planted several bombs in buildings throughout Egypt, including one at a U.S. diplomatic facility, leaving behind evidence that implicated Muslims as the perpetrators.
Yousef al-Khattab is a more recent example. His website RevolutionMuslim.com—which lampooned the killing of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and mocked the beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl—was originally believed to have been maintained from a safe house in Pakistan. It was later revealed that al-Khattab was actually the American Jew Joseph Cohen, who ran the website from his home in the New York City borough of Queens.
