Meet Fox’s New Anti-Muslim “National Security Analyst” From the Clarion Project


The Zionist Clarion Project is funded by Aisha HaTorah, a pro-Occupation, pro-Settler colonization organization that seeks to foment anti-Muslim Islamophobic sentiment against Muslims in the West. They are known for such anti-Muslim screeds as Obsession, Third Jihad and Iranium. (h/t: JD)

Meet Fox’s New Anti-Muslim “National Security Analyst”

Media Matters

Fox News has repeatedly hosted members of the fringe group Clarion Project, an anti-Muslim organization known for spreading Islamophobic fears, to discuss serious national security matters.

On February 20, Fox News hosted Ryan Mauro, a national security analyst from the Clarion Project, also known as the Clarion Fund, to discuss possible security threats on airlines. Mauro has recently appeared on Fox several times where he has argued that ‘Muslim patrols’ were a growing security concern for the United States, discussed the possibility of an anti-American alliance in the Middle East with Syrian Jihadists, and hyped fears that Somali refugees in the United States were becoming ‘homegrown’ terrorists.

But Mauro and other Clarion Project members are not credible sources to discuss issues such as these given their virulent history of Islamophobia. Clarion Project has been widely criticized for producing and spreading Islamophobic material including the movie, Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West, a film that depicted Muslims as terrorists seeking world conquest. Think Progress reported that this was only the first installment of “Clarion’s ongoing production of Islamophobic films.”

Mauro himself has penned numerous pieces for the anti-Islam blog Islamist Watch where he has tracked his progress in identifying “Muslim enclaves” in the United States that he says will become “‘no-go zones’ where governments admit to having little authority over Muslims living there” :

The construction of the building blocks for similar Muslim enclaves and “no-go zones” in the U.S. is one of the most disturbing programs of Islamist groups. If successful, these territories will be the first to establish Shari’a law in the country, thus offering a profound challenge to America’s constitutional order.

Other board members from the Clarion Project who have also made their way onto Fox include Frank Gaffney, one of America’s most notorious Islamophobes and Fox’s go-to anti-Muslim activist, Zuhdi Jasser. Gaffney has used funding for his Center for Security Policy to produce reports promoting the baseless myth that Muslims are conspiring to implement Sharia law in the United States.

According to a Center for American Progress report, the Clarion Project is funded by three of the seven top anti-Islam and anti-Muslim think tanks and organizations in the United States, including the Donors Capital Fund, Newton D. & Rochelle F. Becker foundations and charitable trust, and Anchorage Charitable Foundation and William Rosenwal Family Fund. The Center for American Progress describes these donors as the “lifeblood of the Islamophobia network in America,” and the report tracks how these donors use their money to support groups like the Clarion Project to “spread a deliberately misleading messages about Islam and Muslims that is fundamentally antithetical to our nation’s foundation and principals of religious freedom.”

    Well of course this is not about religion but about robbery. It’s not like Christians are natural enemies of Islam. Those Christains who help Muslims now are just doing what the Messiah (peace be upon him) said is the right thing to do.
    Who thinks that it is a good Christian deed to murder Muslims, or vice versa, that it is worthy for Muslims to murder Christians is of the devil.
    After all it is written that God crerated man as different tribes so that they may learn to respect each other.

    In Central African Republic, Churches Are Refuge For Muslims Trapped By Violence

    (RNS) Churches in Central African Republic are caring for
    thousands of Muslims who have been trapped in a cycle of revenge
    attacks, perpetrated by a pro-Christian militia.

    Since December,
    Anti-Balaka militias have been emptying Muslim quarters and avenging
    earlier attacks by the Seleka, an Islamist militia. The Seleka rampaged
    through the country in early 2013, terrorizing Christians and ransacking
    churches, hospitals and shops.

    Now that the Muslim president
    Michel Djotodia has stepped down, Seleka is being forced to withdraw
    from its strongholds, as the center of power shifts, amid a mass exodus
    and displacement of Muslims.

    In Baoro, a town in the northwest, a
    Roman Catholic parish is caring for more than 2,000 Muslims who can’t
    flee. A group of Catholic sisters in the town of Bossemptele is
    sheltering more than 500 Muslims, providing food, water and medicine.

    is the time for [people] of good will to stand up and prove the
    strength and quality of their faith,” the Rev. Xavier Fagba, a priest in
    Baoro, told the BBC.

    One reason Muslims are able to take shelter
    in churches is because the country’s religious leaders believe this is a
    nonreligious conflict, said the Rev. Nicolas Guerekoyame-Gbango,
    president of the Alliance of Evangelical Churches in the Central African

    “We have been traveling to the provinces telling people
    to understand this is not a religious conflict,” said
    Guerekonyame-Gbango. “This is contributing some tolerance, although many
    people, including Christians, have taken up arms. This is regrettable.”

    Catholic Archbishop Dieudonne Nzapalainga of the Bangui Archdiocese has
    welcomed Imam Omar Kobine Layama, president of the country’s Islamic
    Community, to live with him in the church compound.

    “I live
    alongside him and I ask Christians to do likewise,” Nzapalainga said in a
    statement Tuesday (Feb. 18) for Caritas, the international relief
    organization. “Love should be a characteristic of Christians. You can’t
    call yourself a Christian if you kill your brother. You can’t call
    yourself a Christian when you hunt him down.”

    Last week, CAR
    interim President Catherine Samba-Panza said she was “going to war” with
    the Anti-Balaka, who she described as having replaced a “sense of their
    mission” with warfare and killings.
