The High Price of Telling the Truth About Islam

[Editor’s note: The article below is written by Eric Allen Bell, a filmmaker who was recently banned from blogging at  the “Daily Kos” because he wrote three articles that ran afoul of the mindset there, specifically naming “” as a “terrorist spin control network.” This article first appeared in our Feb 7 issue and we have decided to rerun it due to the massive interest and reaction it received.

A strange thing happened to me the other day when I was driving past the Federal Building in Los Angeles.  There were a crowd of people assembled there with signs which said that Israel is an aggressive force in the Middle East and that Iran is being picked on.  As I stopped at a red light I heard a man with a mega phone lead the protesters in a chant charging Obama with genocide.  I saw many young people and several Muslim women with their heads covered.  It was an anti-war demonstration that probably a year ago I would have supported.  But although I am not in favor of military action, I know that Iran is not another Iraq, and that in fact there is more going on here than the overly-simplified picture that the protestors were painting, as cars drove by honking in support.  As the light turned green another sign caught my eye – a picture of the Twin Towers burning which read “911 Was an Inside Job”.  As I looked at a sea of Palestinian flags and college kids banging on drums I felt a certain frustration – frustration based on a series of events that have changed my world view.

In the Summer of 2010, having recently escaped Hollywood, CA to take a much needed break from my profession as a film maker, I was driving in my car listening to a story on NPR.  It seems the people in my new home of Murfreesboro, TN were up in arms over the proposed construction of a 53,000 square foot mega mosque, to be built in their small town in the middle of the American Bible Belt.

I listened carefully, to the sound bytes, of those who had shown up to a town hall meeting to voice their opposition and, as someone who was rather new to the South, I was surprised by what I was hearing.   “America is a Christian nation and there is only one God and his name is not Allah and his son is Jesus Christ” and “America is a Christian Nation” and “These Muslims do not share my values and I don’t want them in my backyard”.  Growing up in Southern California, I had never heard anything like this before in my life.  And I started to follow the story with great interest.

On the outer edge of town, off a small country road, there was a large parcel of land, right next door to a Baptist church, with a big sign that read, “Future Home of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro”.  Over the past 6 months that sign had been defaced twice.  Once it was broken in half and another time the words “Not Welcome” were spray painted over it.

Rutherford County, which includes Murfreesboro, only has a little over 100,000 residents and yet the area boasts nearly 200 Christian churches.  Having not been much of a fan of Islam or Christianity or religion in general (and that’s putting it mildly) I saw this as something of a David vs. Goliath story – with fanatical Evangelicals bullying a peaceful Muslim population, which had been in the community for over 30 years without there ever being any trouble.  And, after learning that in July there was to be a big parade down Main Street to the town square, protesting the construction of this new mosque, I decided someone really needed to make a documentary about this.  And even though I had gone to Murfreesboro to escape the film world for a while, it seemed pretty clear that if I did not document this in a movie, no one else would.  I wanted to show the world what I was seeing.  So I put together a small film crew and began production on a documentary I would title, “Not Welcome”.

I had never seen more American flags assembled together in one place than I had on that hot July morning as the anti-mosque crowd gathered at the base camp to prepare for the parade.  Many of the marchers showed up wearing red, white and blue.  I had 4 cameras covering the event with one crew embedded with the Liberal activists who were going to counter-demonstrate and the rest of the cameras with me, embedded with those who were to march against the mosque.  I conducted several interviews in the school parking lot where locals and those who had driven for hours gathered, prepared to march against what they perceived to be not only a threat to their way of life, but also something of an insult given the events of September 11, 2001.  Two Congressional candidates, both promising to “stop the Islamic training camp” showed up and used this opportunity to campaign, one of whom even gave a speech through a mega phone reminding folks to vote for him if they wanted to stop Sharia Law from coming to Murfreesboro.  The pastor of Baptist church gathered everyone together in prayer, and the parade took off down Main Street with signs that read “Google the Koran” and “Stop Homegrown Terrorism” and someone in the crowd handed out hundreds of small Israeli flags as several hundred Southerners marched against the mosque.

About six months later I had accumulated over 300 hours of footage, interviewing the parade organizer, both Congressional candidates, the Mayor, the Imam at the mosque and several of its board members, numerous concerned residents on both sides of the issue, Muslim residents, city council members, a Christian Zionist lobbyist who was organizing the opposition to the mosque – and I had even filmed weeks of court proceedings, as a local group had filed suit against the County to stop them from issuing any construction permits to the Islamic Center.  The court proceedings were truly a circus with a country lawyer in loud suit with a bow tie argued that Islam is not a religion and that he was prepared to take this matter to the Supreme Court if necessary.  That legal action had failed and failed miserably.  And although many of the townspeople did in fact have a number of very valid concerns, I felt that those whom they had chosen to represent them were not their best foot forward.  In many ways, for the people of Murfreesboro, TN this turned out to be an international embarrassment – given the level of interest from the press.

Also, someone tried to set fire to some construction equipment at the site of the new mosque and the student activist group, calling themselves “Middle Tennesseans for Religious Freedom” put together a candle light vigil where hundreds of townspeople showed up in support of tolerance.  A few young men showed up in a pickup truck and honked their horn repeatedly throughout the vigil.  Their clothes seemed to indicate they had spent the work day hanging drywall.  And when they put up a huge sign in the back of their truck which read “No Mosque” while misspelling the word mosque, I did not hesitate to film them but to also sort of taunt them, in order to provoke a good response on camera.  And I got it.  One of them said we should suspend the Constitution and went on to say that “All them Mooslums should be shipped home” even the ones who were born here.

Adding more fuel to that fire was an incident that took place when I attempted to interview Kevin Fisher at a Tea Party event on the town square.  It was my opinion that in order to avoid accusations of being bigoted, the money interests (a Christian Zionist organization called Proclaiming Justice to the Nations) chose the only person of color, already involved in this issue, to lead the parade and to be a plaintiff in the lawsuit.  Kevin Fisher was an African American college dropout, who worked as a prison guard and became a passionate opponent of the new mosque, after his wife divorced him and became, you guessed it, a Muslim convert.  When I approached him on the square with a crew that included 4 cameras, saying only “Hi, Kevin” he dialed his cell phone and called 9-1-1 saying that he was being “racially harassed”.  This not only made the headlines of the local paper but the incident, including audio from the 9-1-1 call was played over and over that night on the local evening news.  This became something of a running joke, when I was recognized at the grocery store in Murfreesboro for instance, people would often point at me and say, “Hey, stop racially harassing me” and then we would all have a big laugh.  And Islamic blogs such as were only too happy to run an article about how an opponent of the mosque was “playing the race card” against a filmmaker who was just trying to ask questions.

CNN breezed through town and produced a quick hit piece painting all of the mosque opponents as uneducated rednecks and the Islamic community as everyday people who were being wrongly persecuted.  Soledad O’Brien’s producer offered to buy some of my footage from me with the explicit promise that their piece was going to be called “Islam: In America” and would not focus more than a few minutes on Murfreesboro.  After an inside tip that this producer was lying to me, I confronted him and got some rather vague answers.  So I declined to license him any of my material.  And sure enough, the CNN documentary did in fact focus exclusively on Mufreesboro and was called “Unwelcome: The Muslims Next Door”.  Somehow Hollywood, with its usual backstabbing tricks, had managed to find me hiding out in Tennessee.

I had accumulated a lot of good quality footage.  That, combined with the increasing number of physical threats to me personally while filming in large crowds, and death threats that had arrived via email (causing me to look over my shoulder everywhere I went and making it necessary to spend a small fortune on private security) told me it was time.  The writing was on the wall.  It was time for me to leave Murfreesboro, hire a professional Editor and get to work on assembling my footage to create a feature length documentary for theatrical distribution.

Before I go any further, I should mention that, while all of this was happening, I had become involved in the story itself.  I took sides.  I sided with the Islamic community in their legal right to build a house of worship and when I was interviewed by the local papers (it’s not every day that a small town like this has someone shooting a documentary there) when I was asked where I stood on the issue I never hesitated to give my point of view.  And after a time my point of view was sought out by larger newspapers and several local and syndicated radio programs – mostly Conservative and mostly taking issue with my stance.  And I was also invited to write several pieces for Michael Moore’s blog as well.

Although I had left town to edit, there continued to be letters to the editor on a few of the local papers saying that I should leave TN and go back to where I came from.  I could not believe the cartoonish way in which those who opposed the mosque were making their case.  I felt like I was on the right side of this thing – absolutely certain.  But in fact, I was wrong.

Everything I have told you up until now – this version of my story – is exactly how I was seeing things up until something changed.  I went home to Los Angeles, showed my 25 minute short version of the documentary to some distributors and backers, and did the usual dog and pony show that had worked so well to raise funds, for other motion picture projects I had been involved with in the past.  And sure enough someone said they would back the completion of the movie.  It was decided that the focus would be on “the enemy at home” that being what we were calling “Apocalyptic Christianity” (as there was concern about using the word “Zionism” in “Christian Zionism”).  The Murfreesboro issue was to be used as something of a jumping off point to take a look at the expanding influence of the End Times Evangelical lobby in the United States and how they use their influence to manufacture consent for the bombing of oil rich Islamic countries and to influence policy on social issues.  The theme would focus on the problems we have in America, with our own religious lunatic fringe, rather than on a peaceful group of non-Christians who just wanted to build a place of worship.

After writing a few articles for Michael Moore, I also wrote for a liberal blog called Common Dreams and I wrote over a hundred articles for the Daily Kos, a liberal blog so popular that they receive over one million visitors a day.  I felt I was protecting the underdog, going after the bullies.  I really believed that I was on the right side of this thing.

But something kept nagging at me on a gut level.  Something about all of this didn’t quite feel right.  The Arab Spring, which I supported, started to degenerate into the Islamist Winter, and I grew more and more concerned.  I flew back to Nashville to shoot a conference on whether or not Islam was conducive with Democratic Values and on the way to my hotel room I learned that my cab driver was from Egypt.  I asked him how he felt about the fall of Mubarak, a dictator worth over $70 billion dollars while so much of his country was living in poverty and he told me he was concerned.  Concerned?  Wasn’t this good news?  The cab driver was a Coptic Christian and he told me that he feared for his family back home.  “If the Muslims take control, and they will, it will be very dangerous for my parents and my sisters.  I’m scared for them right now”.  After that conversation, I started to pay more attention to the news coming from the Islamic world in the Middle East.

Over the coming months I watched as the Muslim Brotherhood gained political power in Egypt.  I saw that cab driver’s worst fears come true as Coptic Christians were attacked by Islamic mobs.  I saw Tunisia institute Sharia, the brutal Islamic Law.  After Libya fell, the Transitional Council also instituted Islamic Law.  The nuclear armed Islamic government of Pakistan arrested and punished those who cooperated with the United States in killing Osama Bin Laden.  A woman under the Islamic government of Afghanistan faced execution for the crime of being raped.  Similar news stories emerged from Iran.  A man who typed “there is no god” as his Facebook status in Indonesia, the largest Islamic country in the world, was arrested for blasphemy.

Several Muslim men in England were arrested for handing out leaflets to Londoners demanding that homosexuals be executed by hanging for violating Islamic Law with their lifestyle.

And it struck me.  Even though these angry townspeople in Mufreesboro, TN had not articulated their concerns very well, they were only half wrong.  I remember meeting Frank Gaffney and interviewing him in front of the courthouse and asking him if he really thought that the peaceful Muslims here actually presented a real threat to America and he said no.  That caught me off guard so I asked if he really thought it was a credible threat that a community that makes up about one percent of the United States population was just going to suddenly rise up one day and try to take over the country and force Sharia Law onto all of us.  Again he said no.  Then he told me I was asking the wrong questions.  He suggested that I was only looking for answers that would support the conclusions I had already arrived at.  He said he had, after much research, arrived at a different set of conclusions and he challenged me to look a little deeper.  He gave me a report to look at and many, many months later I did look at his report.

It was at this time that I went to my backers and told them that we were not making an honest documentary.  I felt that everything I had put into the 25 minute short version (the one I used to raise the completion funds) was true, but only half true.  It was critical that we also show the very real threats that exist within Islam.  We needed to show that what is happening to these small communities of peaceful Muslims in America are the exception to the rule.  I wanted to show what happens to countries when they gain a Muslim majority, how women are treated, that homosexuals were executed, that free speech did not exist, that the forced Islamic Law was not consistent with Democratic Values – anything and everything I could think of that ought to strike a chord with the Liberal mindset.  And the response I received was, “Eric you are starting to sound like an Islamophobe.  We don’t want to make a movie that promotes fear.  Let’s just stick with the existing plan, okay?”

I fought and I fought.  I showed them a book called “The Truth About Mohammed” but was struck down since the author was a man named Robert Spencer and my backers pointed out that the Southern Poverty Law Center named his “Jihad Watch” site as part of a hate group.  I asked them to watch a documentary called “Islam: What the West Needs to Know” and pointed out that I had researched independently and verified the truth of what was being presented there, but they would not even watch this documentary as they were sure in advance that it was “hate speech” and “propaganda designed to spread fear”.  It probably goes without saying that by now I was very frustrated.  I showed my new backers several verses from the Koran that call for the killing of infidels and was told that these verses were probably being taken out of context.  I showed them a video clip from MEMRI TV of a young Egyptian child reciting a Hadith that calls for the killing of Jews and was told that “you can’t trust MEMRI because they have an agenda”.

I mentioned the popular Islamophobia watchdog site “Loonwatch” and how I had noticed a pattern of deflection all criticisms of radical and violent Islam by calling anyone who publicly raises these concerns a “Loon” and how I felt this was an intentional effort to provide a smoke screen for the terrorists.  I also noted that everything Loonwatch said was in lockstep with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and now CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation – the largest Islamic charity at one time, which was found to be funneling monies to Islamic terrorist organizations.  I also noted that CAIR had ties to both Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and that Al Qeada had come out of the Muslim Brotherhood.  I expressed my concerns that the Egyptian Imam of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro might have ties to the MB, something I had failed to properly investigate.  But since CAIR had the support of Glenn Greenwald and Amy Goodman’s show, Democracy Now, I was told that I had my facts all wrong.  It was also pointed out to me that if CAIR was allegedly some kind of terrorist front then why do they still have a special tax status and why are they still around?  When I said I do not know but it was possible that the government might prefer to watch them out in the open rather than risk them going underground I was told that my judgment was sounding less and less clear and that maybe I needed to take a step back from the project for a while.

    Welcome to planet earth, Eric.

    Now for your next mission, visit all the countries that Islam has invaded and look for yourself what has happened to the local culture, religion and people there and ascertain from this what is in store for Europe and the West.

    You have only partially opened your eyes to the cult of Mohammad that is masquerading as religion whose followers have carried out several genocides in its name.

    Good luck.

      Ive learned that muslims pick fights with others such as christians and jews then when the christians and jews fight back the muslims act like the victem.

          Nah, muslimes aren't all involved in killing, raping and persecuting people of other faiths. The more cowardly amongst you merely support your more violent brethren — either financially, or by silently cheering them on from the sidelines.

      Eric has given me new hope that the minds of Liberals who have been inculcated into the secular, Liberal worldview, are capable of rational thinking, logical processing of data, and cognitive wisdom. In general, the Lib blogosphere is a dark place, where suppression of alternative opinions to the Liberal mainstream culture are met with taunts, ridicule and threats. There is nothing Liberal or progressive about the huge majority of people who not only believe the propaganda they have been taught, but demand that opposing views be silenced, much as Eric Bell's Daily Kos voice was silenced.

      In any case Eric, welcome to the "bright side." Brightened by the light of the truth, we are willing to have our beliefs and opinions challenged and to fight for the truth. Though we have no tolerance for lies, we are respectful of the rights of other side to voice their arguments and opinions in the marketplace of ideas. We fear no evil, but we do believe evil needs to have light shed upon it — the darkness of evil cannot coexist with the light of the truth.

      Really glad that a valuable person like you has figured it out . You could have seen that in the book ( because they hate ) Those country folks aren't that dumb, And freedom doesn't mean you have to let the person who wants to kill you build on the lot next to your house, Good work . And God doesn't want people to kill people just because they don't join their group or church, If God wanted them dead he could get it done without human hands, But you now have a very important job to do for humankind, THE TRUTH . and many will despise you for it, But the world does have right and wrong and good and evil ,, THE BEST ON THE JOURNEY.

        LOL, Eric would make a lot more money if he were shilling for islamonazism. It's a sign of his honesty that he's not.

  • Mel M

    One thing that you could highlight Eric, is the example of what happens when the Muslim Brotherhood gains control of a country. The liberal media loons have gone out of their way to try to show the MB as a "moderate" force. But it is the Muslim Brotherhood that has been behind the regime in Khartoum since 1989; it has committed genocide against non Muslims in the Nuba Mts, and around the Heglieg oil fields of southern Sudan, as well as in Darfur against other Muslim people living there. It is this kind of "Islam" which is the true face of the Muslim Brotherhood.

  • Genie Smith

    Welcome to the awakening, Eric.

    You have paid a price for telling the truth about Islam, but considering the things you have lost along the way to your awakening I don't think the cost has been too high thus far.

    You have shed the liberal blinders and in the process shed the dangerously naive view of Islam that the left promotes.

    Thank you for your honesty, and God bless you.

  • southernsue

    i still can't believe that you support a 53000 sq ft mosque to be built next door to a christian church!

    you want to make a film with the truth, but you still blindly support building a mosque that these muslim's pray to their allah to bring back their pedophile iman.

    i don't get your reasoning!

      He wrote: "We don’t have to like it, but then again the First Amendment was designed not to protect popular ideas…"

      This is why I have to remind conservatives who invoke the Constitution, it is a very human document. Like John Adams wrote, the Constitution was not handed down from heaven by the gods. If our Founders could see what America and the West are facing today from the religion / ideology of Islam, it is my guess the Establishment and the Free Exercise clauses would read differently.

      • John Saunders-Smith

        That is why I've always maintained that democracy is useless against islam. If you use democracy to fight the spread of islam, you'll always lose.

          • Mohammed Lebbadi

            Yes, stop them, not only from getting in, but also from becoming "in" (tens of thousands of American Christians converting to Islam every year!)

          • hammer of toures

            i think you got that backwards mo. well maybe in prison they are converting as islam sanctions murder, theft, rape, mysogony. hell what criminal misfit would not convert?

        • KafirDawg

          There are numerous islamofascist states which bear witness to your theory. The muslonazis are trying to take down various western democracies from the top-down. By infiltrating, subverting and co-opting governments, law enforcement entities, educational institutions etc.

      • rhcrest

        The key is that Islam is not a true religion but instead a totalitarian ideology masquerading as a religion. True religions do not wish to take over their nation's form of govt, true religions do not have military. There is a small religious component to it. Also we need to stop with the idea that all cultures are equal. Not all cultures are equal. When muslims physically take over an area it becomes a no go zone as in England and parts of Dearborn MI. Police will not evren go in. THey are places filled with violence. So can someoen with a straight face say that a culture that promotes death and destruction is equal to one that does not?

    • Leon_DiJusticia

      Eric, your article spells out very well the issues at stake. This is an issue of Constitutional protections. Moreover, these religious zealots claiming to be Christians continue to prove by their actions that although they may know the words, they have no respect for Jesus Christ or his teachings. These folks are hypocrites, being of the same ilk as all those that burned the churches of others throughout the 20th century.

      This issue is not new. Jehovah's Witnesses, a christian denomination, experienced similar treatment throughout most of the 20th century. They were mobbed, unjustly imprisoned, and their Kingdom Halls vandalized and burned. Jehovah's Witnesses battled in the courts so that the Constitutional rights of freedom of religion could be enjoyed by everyone.

      I continue to be astounded that so many folks continue to indulge themselves in hatred so as to be completely blinded to all other things. There are as many denominations of Islam as there is Christianity. To brand all of them as hate mongering murderers is just as wrong as it is to say all Christian churches teach intolerance.

      Those persons opposing the mosque are failing to realize that as they tread on the rights of others, they endanger such rights for themselves.

      The laws of this land were founded on principles, but today's society has jettisoned principles in favor of being 'politically correct'. The laws of this country make it unlawful to murder, yet there are those who still commit murder and other persons that continue to oppose punishment for murderers.

      Moreover, Islamic factions do not hold a monopoly on fomenting hatred. The persons vandalizing the property of the Murfreesboro Muslims have proven that and in doing so they have also proven not only that they have no respect for the laws of the United States and the State of Tennessee, but also that they hate the teachings of Jesus Christ.

    • opposing islam

      Exactly Eric,you want to make a film with the truth, but you still blindly support building a mosque that these muslim's pray to their allah to bring back their pedophile iman.
      That makes you another " Politically correct " man ,and you are playing a game where your opponent is using your kindness as a tool against you as they have one rule of the game for themselves at the same time you think you are being such a nice guy and give them advantage because you are playing with a "built in" handicap of your own making ,as I understand it we cannot continue this tack of political correctness life,or it is a losers game is not always fair and when you have to fight ,even peacefully you cannot " Make everyone happy ",I think that if the Islamist ideas are wrong then they are wrong and need to be opposed with just the same force the Islamist side tries to impose itself

    Eric Bell wrote: "I still think that George W. Bush was one of the worst things to happen to America in my lifetime…."

    I would concur with that assessment, that is until Barack H. Obama rose to power in the United States. I got duped once into voting for Bush, November 2000. I did not vote for Obama. I saw where he worshiped for better than twenty years and who his mentors were. Still, I had no idea how much damage one man could do to this once great country. That having been said, Bush enabled Obama to rise to power.

    • Judie McConnell

      No .Bush did not give any power to jerk head Obama! Sorry

      • WildJew

        Bush repeatedly mislead the American people about Islam. Bush said:

        "The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of Muslim clerics; a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam…..

        Bush: "Its (Islam's) teachings are good and peaceful, and those who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah…."

        He said: "The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself."

        Americans elected a dangerous Muslim-born president with deep sympathies for the world of Islam only seven years out from the 9/11 attacks.

    Eric, you are one of those rare individuals who really wants to know the truth. As you said, you thought you knew the truth. When you found out differently you changed some of your opinions. Most people are too insecure to do that. They go along with whatever peer group they are a part of. "Don't confuse me with the facts" is saying I don't want to know the truth because then I might have to feel guilty for going along with my crowd (tribe).

  • Stephen_Brady

    "Where do I stand on Islam? Let’s look at its founder – a man who raped a 9 year old girl, a slave owner, a leader who ordered people to be tortured, for adulterers to be stoned, for countless nonbelievers to be beheaded, a killer, a warmonger who spread his “religion of peace” by the sword, a man who suffered from hallucinations of voices telling him to do violent things, a tyrant, a homicidal maniac perhaps the equivalent of 100,000 Osama Bin Ladens. And this sadistic lunatic is considered to be the “ideal man” in Islam. What more needs to be said about Islam than that?"

    Thanks for telling the truth, Eric. Two of my sons … one's name was Erich … died in the fight against the followers of Mohammed and his religion of peace. Welcome to the fight …

    • Mohammed Lebbadi

      Wow, Stephen, did your son take part in the Crusades or what? Poor Aisha, she was raped by her husband Muhammad (we are not sure about her age then!), and poor Bilal the slave, he was freed by Muhammad and became the lead Muazzin, and all those stoned adulterers and beheaded infidels (where was that, in Medina or Mecca? I can't recall!), and, yes, he was crazy, mad, and since all the people around him suffered from the same hallucinations, they followed him. Now about Osama, the Americans created that monster, was Muhammad also your creation?

      • Stephen_Brady

        In case you didn't notice, Moe, I quoted … QUOTED … the article, above.

        My sons died in battle, one in Iraq, and one in Afghanistan. I have a third son in A-stan, right now, who is a battalion commander and bringing the battle to the enemy.

        All of you who think America is weak, and Americans are self-indulgent and lazy, ought to take a lesson from history. The United States was attacked by the Japanese Empire on Dec. 7, 1941. Shortly thereafter, Germany declared war on us. By August of 1945, Germany was a smouldering ruin, Hitler's regime was an evil memory, and Hiroshima and Nagasaki were nuclear deserts.

        Don't underestimate us …

            I am from Indonesia and yes it is one of the largest Islam countries in the world. But I was raised as a Christian., I also support the war against this evil cult, I have always hated living in this country, and what the author said about muslim is true. Their religion is spread by violence and these people are being brainwashed by this quran. I have experienced their cruelty first hand and how ignorance these peoples are. Not to mention the hypocrites imam who said one thing in the media and ended up doing the exact opposite things. Anyway stephen you have my prayers as a fellow Christian for your sons and I sincerely hope your third son will come home to you safe and sound.

          • Stephen_Brady

            My prayers are with you, also, Andrew!

            An update: My son is home from Afghanistan, and is currently working in the Pentagon.

    • Had enough

      The 'Crusades' were a counterattack against the seemingly never ending,hate filled muslims.

      • Stephen_Brady

        I agree with you. This is not to say that certain kings and noblemen wanted more power and wealth. But the Crusades never would have happened without Muslim aggression against Jewish and Christian lands. Also, the drive towards the New World in the 15th Century was fueled by the fall of Constantinople to the Turks, in 1453.

        As an aside, my wife and I love croissants. Their unique "crescent moon" design is a tribute to the warriors who stopped the Turks at the gates of Vienna. It's also a slap in that face to Muslims!

    • Nahid Bayyari

      All what I will say to you is to pray on your soul. when the big day comes and face judgment you will not be able to defend yourself or say one word to the great creator. I suggest that you search and learn more about Islam before you even speak these words you said. I read your words and it full of ignorance. I Thank allah for what he gave me The islam and the light.

      • Stephen_Brady

        Son, I know all I need to know about Islam. I am a Christian, and have prayed the sinner's prayer. God, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is the One and true God. Allah is a false god, the former moon-god of the Arabians. I read your words and they are full of ignorance.

        I thank God for what He has given to me … the Christian faith and salvation … which IS the light.

    If Frontpage Magazine is searching for and promoting the truth then why are comments being removed, comments that are not abusive or off topic ?

    I have had comments removed why?

    I would be obliged if manners could be employed, curtesy demands an explanation.

  • Cee Keonig

    Thank you for a well thought out article, Eric. It sounds like your blinders are being opened. Can't say that about the other millions of stupid liberals out there, espousing a freedom of religion for Muslims when they don't know what the heck they are talking about. I can see Muslims taking over Hollywood – wouldn't that be a hoot? They'd stone most of the actresses and behead all of the gays and encourage all of the perverts. But Hollywood can't see that. Talk about wearing blinders!

    With the granting of 'friendly' Arab $$ to our colleges and universities, it's not surprising that there are so many Muslim endorsing professors, and these very professors are influencing our children who will be the leaders of the next generation. We are in deep doodoo!

    I don't believe the founders of our nation could ever have envision the Muslim infiltrating our society as they have. If they did, I feel they would have reworded the religious parts of our Constitution. Muslims are a threat to our very way of life and our values. The very top dog of the M'boro mosque is a threat to us, as is the new mosque. I don't know why someone didn't pour lots of pig blood all over the proposed site and desecrate it.

    If Obama is reelected, Lord help us! He is hell bent to bend us over and let the Muslim f— us!

    • KafirDawg

      I used to know a professor w/the last name of Hassul. He told me the muslime students always expected favoritism from him — because they figured he was one of their own. I'm sure they were mighty disappointed to find out he was Jewish.

  • Aubreyesque

    Eric, I support you and am glad you are sharing this with us. As a conservative, I hate war too. I'd much rather have our men and women here to protect our borders – I'd rather that we work things out diplomatically. But here's the thing about people and the world and life: sometimes, being still is not enough. Sometimes you have to fight. We can debate HOW it is we fight, but fight we must. Freedom isn't free and must always be defended – as you are doing now.

    But most of all, as a conservative, I think you are learning what "we" are really about. The surface descriptions you have for conservatives are vicious memes the community you have just come from paints us with, but you see now that we are of the same mind: freedom is about human rights and conservatives want to protect that. Thank you so much for speaking out and showing us the courage of Truth. Welcome home and know that the semantics are just part of being American. That we stand together and fight against unTruth and FOR freedom is what is important. If that makes you 'conservative' then yes, you are.

  • elihu

    There is only one Force that can not only contain the spread of Islam, but irradicate it; and He will. His Name is YHWH, and He is the only God; the Living God:

    "That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun,
    That there is no one besides Me.
    I am the LORD, and there is no other,
    I am the LORD, and there is no other,
    The One forming light and creating darkness,
    Causing well-being and creating calamity;
    I am the LORD who does all these."
    (Isaiah 45.6-7.).

    • Mohammed Lebbadi

      Yes, Yahweh is Allah, didn't you know that? So Allah is going to erradicate Islam, the religion of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad? Eliho, if you are Jewish then you know that "Allah" is right there in your books, written in slightly different ways!

      • cjk

        Yaweh is the COMPLETE opposite of Allah. Allah is Satan as described in the Bible.
        Jesus will indeed eradicate Mohammedanism, but not before it is first allowed to briefly conquer the world and even capture Jerusalem.
        In the meantime Yaweh is humiliating Allah and his 'lions' (snicker) by having his people slay them by the bunches in every battle.
        One Jewish woman will kill a dozen 'lions' LOL, LOL!

      • KafirDawg

        Your practice of Al Taqiyya needs a lot more work.

  • Tantor


    Go find out who is funding the mosque and that will tell you everything you need to know. The Saudis are engaged in a covert campaign to buy American mosques, then flip them to Wahhabism. Look at where CAIR's money comes from, where Muslim student groups get their money. Follow the money and you will find your answer.

  • Mohammed Lebbadi

    Eric, you surprise me, I was following the Mursfreeboro story and your documentary and we exchanged some news and ideas. Now you are saying things which are false, about Egypt, Libya, Tunisia…Islam. A documentary is a documentary, it should be well-documented, and the person who makes it should also be well-documented, and here you are saying things which are unfounded!

    • Aubreyesque

      HOW are they unfounded? NAME SPECIFICS or what you say is just a bunch of blather. You can't name a thing.

      See, Islamicists mistake was cheering 9-11, cause that got EVERYONE interested, and now you can't stop the signal, babe. YOU. CANNOT. STOP. THE. SIGNAL. More and more people are learning the truth and the best you can say is that its all just a friggen misunderstanding. 7th century, meet the 21st.

    • Sound&Fury

      Mohammed in Morocco, you of all people should recognize the 800 lb gorilla in the room, that to say, Islam has bloody borders.

      Surely you jest, given the history of wholesale murder & violence throughout the Islamic world, which is well-documented over its 1700 year history. There is a Latin saying in law; "Res ipsa loquiter", that is to say, "things speak for themselves. If you want people to take you seriously, you should at least be willing to acknowledge the obvious.

  • Nakba1948

    Welcome, Mr. Bell, to the exciting world of Islamophobia! Your Zionist companions will be only too happy to feed you all sorts of misinformation, bigotry, and hysterical conspiracy theories. Act now, and win a romantic dinner with a prominent Islamophobe (selections include David Horowitz, Robert Spencer, Daniel Pipes, Pamela Gellar) in beautiful occupied Jerusalem!

    • Donald L.

      If telling the truth about Mohammad and Islam makes you uncomfortable than tough ****! You're hatred is so transparent using the name Nakba 1948! You realize what in fact the propaganda of victim hood regarding Nakba means, it means you Arabs mourn not living up to your vow of massacring Jews and driving them in to the Mediterranean Sea! That's just the tip of the disgusting iceberg which is Islam! By the way, Sharia law was meant for only Muslim warriors at first, it was a code that allowed them to lie to non-Muslims, rape, steal and treat their women like chattel. The bottom-line for the Muslim warrior was he could do no wrong and if perchance he died in battle as a martyr, he would go to a sex orgy heaven! Everything I've said is the truth about Islam, what? Are you going to label me with Islamophobia?

    • Sound&Fury

      Zionist companions? Oh yes, the Jooooooz. It's all their fault! Now, what was your point about conspiracy theories?

    • curmudgeon

      there are two reasons to ever write the term "islamophobia". one reason is to make fun of it, and point out that it is a lie. the other use, the one you prefer, is to self designate ones self as a fool.

    • reader

      The fraudilent nakba has just overplayed own hand. This post is the proof that the so-called 'nakba of 1948' has nothing to do with land, but everything to do with islamofascism. This fraud should have recognized the fact that Eric Bell's piece has nothing to do with Israel for own good, but jihady insticts got better of it.

    • Joy

      Nakba – indeed! YOU are a "nakba" – pure & simple. Great description, in fact, of the birth of Mohammed, PBUM…

      You mindless fool. Islam turns everything it touches into crap. It is desperately evil; a satanic, oppressive, mindless belief system. It glorifies evil. Wake the hell up, or you will find yourself in hell.

      Your name alone Nakba 1948 speak for itself, zionism is only the one political ideal that's MEANINGFUL, Jerusalem is not mentioned ANYWHERE in the Coran and belongs to Jews whether you like it or not, wether the media propaganda gives a very special room to the Fakestinian cause, Israel is in no manner responsible for the bloodshed throughout the Muslim world nor the corruption level of their dictators, by the way you are not really helping your "brothers" blinding yourself from their REAL oppressors, but you are just YET another fundamentalist brainwashed robot that has no care for life period, your death cult is a crime against humanity and you are a member of it, I truly pity you !

  • Mohammed Lebbadi

    Eric Bell's conclusions (he has all this on film, he was there, disguised as one of Muhammad's followers, just like he was disguised as an objective observer of the Murfreesboro story!!!): Where do I stand on Islam? Let’s look at its founder – a man who raped a 9 year old girl, a slave owner, a leader who ordered people to be tortured, for adulterers to be stoned, for countless nonbelievers to be beheaded, a killer, a warmonger who spread his “religion of peace” by the sword, a man who suffered from hallucinations of voices telling him to do violent things, a tyrant, a homicidal maniac perhaps the equivalent of 100,000 Osama Bin Ladens. And this sadistic lunatic is considered to be the “ideal man” in Islam. What more needs to be said about Islam than that?

  • Mohammed Lebbadi

    Eric, I am not hurt by all this, we are used to it, we are immune! But I pity you, it is pretty sad indeed for someone I thought was an honest man to come down this low, to join those in the gutter, what's your problem? Is it similar to Kevin's?

    • Donad L.

      And that is what makes you stupid, being immune to criticism! Muhammad's goal with Islam was to break the bonds of tribal warfare and bring unity to one big Muslim tribe! Since his death not only did Arabs break up into waring factions over leadership but the Arabs still retained tribal and clan loyalties. So in the end, Islam made the Arabs off much worse because since the 7th century more Arabs and non-Arab Muslims have died at the hands of fellow Muslims than they have at the hands of the so-called infidel! Do you still feel immune from criticism?

    At some point the JIhad against Judeo-Christian civilization will end and I guarantee you Islam will lose.

  • http://www,jwpeterson,com unclejim

    Like all religions Islam is based in insanity. A thinking person cannot be or become a religious person. Thinking is required if the defeat of any and all religious is the goal. Islam (or any other religion) cannot be defeated by fighting in the streets like pack animals. It (they) can only be made to go out of existence by causing people to think. 1) to think about what they are 2) to think about where they live an d 3) to think about what these require of both their physical and intellectual behavior prior to them being able to consider themselves properly functioning human-beings.

  • Rhonda

    I wonder if Mr Bell will read any of these comments. I, like Eric, used to be a liberal. In my first election I voted for Carter, I was a member of the "Young Democrats". Thirty years later I decided to read history surrounding our founding. I gorged myself with learning history and current events, it's amazing what's been left out of our history books and out of the liberal based media. On my 50th birthday, I went to the Republican Party headquarters and registered a Republican. This alienated me from my five surviving siblings; they no longer speak to me. Now, I know facts that were deliberately left out of newspapers, television news, school books etc. One day, I hope Eric will have the awakening the rest of us have. I hope he reads Hayek, Canada Free Press, Humberto Fontova, Thomas Sowell and a little book titled "American History In Black & White". I hope he learns that the Federalist Papers were written by the very men who wrote our founding documents to interpret to the American public those documents and I hope he picks up a copy of the collection. I hope he learns about the awful Socialists/Communists who have used impressionable students and minorities as "useful idiots" to spread their dangerous plan to eliminate our Constitution. I hope he picks up a copy of "The 5000 Year Leap" which made me weep to realize I had been one of those "useful idiots". I hope he learns from David Mamet that now, he MUST become an activist for conservatism. The more I learn, the more conservative I become. I'm angry we've been lied to, I'm angry that I used to be a Democrat (Progressive) for so long not really understanding how destructive it was; I was one of them who wanted to destroy my wonderful country. I'm still an atheist but I'll be damned if I'll allow this country's Judeo/Christian values to be destroyed by the left. The first book in my journey to sanity and wisdom was "The Looming Tower" which was ironically given positive reviews by NPR. Shortly after that, I had the same realization regarding NPR which Mamet spoke of in his piece, "Why I Am No Longer A Brain Dead Liberal"; I discovered a very moving love of my country. I hope for a further awakening of Eric Allen Bell. My very best to you, Mr Bell. Your journey will be painful but you'll be rewarded with an overwhelming love of this country, the United States of America.

    • Joy

      Beautiful testimony, Rhonda – this whole revelation by and about Eric Bell has been an amazing journey in itself! But each person emerging from the Regressive cocoon of the IL-liberal Left is eventually rewarded, as you have been, with the Truth, the centerpiece of which is realization of how wonderful and unique this country is – and even how much better it has and can become! Thanks for your insights – and telling your own story…

  • Willard Mueller

    The Trojan Horses are mutiplying across America and the World. (mosque) An army is being trained and our government knows. It has been said " the Contitution is not a suicide pact" Many of the children of alla the unmerciful have infiltrated our nations governmental work places and look to the day of a great victory over "The Great Devil" America.

  • Mohammed Lebbadi

    If Islam is so bad as you say, why are so many people accepting it and living by it? If Muhammad was such a bad and crazy man as Eric says how did he manage to convince Arabians to follow him and how was he able to lead them to victory and eventually to conquer half the world? Yes, if one uses his brain correctly, he would understand, and instead of cheap attacks he would dialogue and coexist and accept the difference. Above all, let's fight ignorance, among all peoples, it's the source of most of the problems. Don't trust what you hear, seek knowledge yourself. I have been a Muslim for almost seventy years and I am still learning, I still don't know much about "Sharia" while the Islamophobes say they know everything, they probably don't even know what the word means!

    • KafirDawg

      What did muhamMAD do to the Jews that had lived in Saudi Arabia long before he was even born? Killed them and enslaved them, just like he did to anyone who opposed him.

  • Mohammed Lebbadi

    …one final thought and I will leave you in your nightmare (it's not good for your health though, why don't you just be cool and happy!): Did you notice that we Muslims don't attack Jesus, the Virgin Mary, the Holy Spirit, etc.? We don't attack the Christian faith although we believe the message brought by Jesus was completely distorted and his person was made into something he never pretended to be! We don't attack your beliefs. I am not saying Muslims don't attack Christians, yes they do and they kill them, I condemn that, but Christians also attack Muslims and kill them, that's another story, a sad one played by ignorant people!

    • Sound&Fury

      Muslims don't attack the Christian faith? No, they just attack Christians. You cowards hide from critics by labeling them Islamaphobes, yet you justify attacks against "infidels" who don't accept the message of the Prophet. Go figure…

    • Foolster41

      A paradox. We have documented versions of the New Testament from before Mohammad was born. (around 2nd Century AD). There is no way Islam can be a fulfillment of Islam.

  • JsThFx

    After watching the short version of the movie, I don't get the sense that you've explored or illuminated the truth about Progressive support and funding for Radical Islam. Your article mentions it, but I did not see it in the short. Will the feature length movie include this viewpoint? It's clear from your article that you've begun to see this truth, but until your movie actually reflects this, I can't donate.

  • ISAIAH5417

    Dude! You gotta lotta stone! Kinda like catchin a 70-footer at Mavericks when you never surfed in your life. Damn! What will you do now? And can you answer me this: How do you figure the mosque in Murfreesboro is anything other than a enemy installation? I mean, do you really think Islam is a peaceful religion on any level? The Muslims murdered 3000 of our citizens on our own soil and continue in their attempts to kill as many more of us as they can. Islam is a military org fronting as a religion.

  • ISAIAH5417

    Why should an alien military force in America anywhere be allowed to construct installations that will do nothing but facilitate the promulgation of militant Islam tactics and strategies? Thug bosses of Islam exploit their "peaceful worshippers" in EXACTLY the same way thug Democrats and union bosses of the U.S. Democrat Political Party exploit black people and other minorities. There is no difference between the world-view of a Democrat and a militant Islamicist except that the Islamicist is comfortable with deadly force. Come to think of it, the U.S. Democrat Political Party is increasingly violent in its tactics. Birds of a feather…

  • ISAIAH5417

    You've decided to ride the tiger Eric Bell. You are to be commended for your courage. However your decision to tolerate the intolerance of Islam in ANY form will get you killed. Islamic treatment of Daniel Pearl and Theo Van Gogh should be clue enough. You are in war whether you want to admit or not and there is no place for fine distinctions when considering the overt and wanton love of death and violence exhibited on a global scale by the devotees of Islam. Wise up or pay the price.

  • theleastthreat

    Free speech for Eric Bell too. He is the owner of his brain and his tongue, not me. Mr Bell, I have no problem with you whatsoever. By the way, have you eve considered vacationing in Pensaccola? We have really great beaches. When should we put you down for?

  • Mohammed Lebbadi

    Eric is looking for money, he has no principles, he will do anything you want, just donate, the more you donate the more he will show "pregressive" support for "radical" Islam, don't you understand? That's what you want, so give, the guy is a mercenary, use him well! I hope you realize though that you are wasting your money, there are lots and lots of honest people who are fighting this hatred, who are trying to promote love instead of hate, who believe human beings are the same and can live together in peace and harmony when they understand each other through knowledge. All religions tell you to be good to your neighbor, and Muslims are your neighbors!

    • KafirDawg

      LOL, is that why the practice of ANY other religion is outlawed in Saudi Arabia? Is that why anyone kuffar/infidel found in Mecca is subject to the death penalty. Get stuffed.

    The fact that he has been banished shows just how brian washed the left has become. It's no different than those that leave the Jehovah Witnesses or Scientology.

  • Mohammed Lebbadi

    I am really disappointed with Eric Bell! At the time of the "Support the Islamic Center of Murfreesboeo" fight, he was being an honest and impartial "documentalist" trying to get a "fair and balanced" picture (true sense). He clashed with some of those against the mosque, especially Kevin Fisher, probably because they were irrational. Now I see a different man, an opportunist, a mercenary. Kevin now looks good in comparison, his problem was a bit psychological, he must have felt abandoned and betrayed by his family, who converted to Islam. He also thought all that would help his political career, although I am sure he was intelligent enough to know that he was being used by the white Islamophics to lead their battle because he was black. God forgive us all!

    • Foolster41

      "he disagrees with you, therefore he is dishonest". Charming. You don't actually give any citations why his former position is any more dishonest than the later. Typical Muslim argumentation.

    • mah29001

  • Mohammed Lebbadi

    Yes, Mr Least Threat, he got under my skin, but since I didn't read all the comments, it could be the same with others!

  • theleastthreat

    Funny how Mr Bell didn't seem to mind the criticism coming at him on this site. He must be able to put that aside. Meanwhile, we have TWO more comments so if you bet yes, you were right! Now, what do you say we go double or nothing?


    Excellent article.
    I am glad that you see what Islam is about WHEN they become a large population.

    However, the root here, is Communism/Leftism, which you encountered.
    You are no longer a useful idiot.
    And because of this, you will continue to be shunned.

    Nothing is really 'equal', btw.

    Ok, so here I am again! There's a devil in all of us, Christians, Muslims, Jews, and others. There's a battle inside all of us, between the good and the bad, we have the God-given intellectual power to weigh one way or the other, so will you push for love or hate, are you ready to accept others like they are, and ready to be accepted like you are? Think about it, it does need lots of thinking and lots of time, but it's worth it, at the end you may find peace, and our world could be better! Goodnight from Casablanca, Morocco, and lots of love, despite what you think of us Moooozleeeeems!

Sorry bud, but your god is not the Judeo-Christian G-d, no matter how hard you try to convince people otherwise. You need to read up more on sharia – which, by your own admission farther up, you don't know much about…. And lastly, it's really not "moooozlems", so much as it's the ignorant, 7th century ramblings of a maniac, and his made up religion for a moon god.

  • hogrider

    You have learned much in your short journey into Islam. Actually it is very easy to understand. The doctrine of Islam is the Quran and Mohammed. Once you know these, you know Islam. Mohammed's biography is the Sira and his traditions and sayings are contained in the Hadith. The Quran + Sira + Hadith are known as the Trilogy. Sira + Hadith are know as the Sunnah. So know the Quran and Mohammed and you know more than any "expert".
    One interesting fact: The 13 years that Mo was in Mecca (preaching) he was only able to convert about 10 people a year to Islam. Then he went to Medina for 10 years and practiced violence, rape and murder. There in Medina he converted about 10,000 people to Islam. If it were not for his violent years in Medina, there would probably be no Islam, the Religion of Peace.

  • hogrider

    I meant to say: Then he went to Medina for 10 years and practiced violence, rape and murder. There in Medina he converted about 10,000 people PER YEAR to Islam.

    What struck me was how Eric's backers and people like them blather on about "taking things out of context" in the Koran.

    But believe me. These same people have no problem evoking the Old Testament and would never challenge statements about it as out of context.

  • Bruce Hanify

    Great!! And very well done!

    You committed the sin of thinking which, I hasten to add, many conservatives also regard as a sin. We live in a bumper sticker nut house. For all the grumbling about the Leftist Sixties, people could have conversations before Watergate.

    For the record, it wasn't Richard Nixon and the Republicans who outlawed actual conversation, but surely many conservatives and libertarians now suffer from the same malady.
