Fear Pays

Fear Pays

Abby Zimet

Prompted by the hysteria around a proposed mosque in Murfreesboro, The Tennessean explores the
multi-million-dollar "anti-jihad" industry, wherein self-proclaimed
experts spread hate and fear about Muslims taking over America, though
at this rate who knows why they'd want to. Foremost is Steve Emerson,
whose tax-exempt "non-profit" Investigative Project on Terrorism Foundation
cleverly gave most of its income - $3.4 million in 2008 - to Emerson's
for-profit SAE Productions so they could find out sharia law will soon
rule us all.
