Steve Emerson has achieved a certain notoriety among north American Muslims. This self-styled expert on ‘terrorism’ is the producer of the scandalous documentary ‘Jihad in America’, which was first aired on PBS television on November 21, 1994
The two-year ordeal of Dr Mousa Abu Marzook finally ended when he landed in Amman, Jordan on May 6. Throughout his incarceration in the US on trumped-up charges levelled by Israel, the political head of Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic group, maintained his innocence and said that he was a political prisoner.
Even as Muslims in the US were celebrating their small but significant victory in getting the US News and World Report to apologise for its willful distortion of historical facts, another magazine repeated the same lie.
