Diana West Loves Bigoted Author of Dubious Mosque Survey
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Diana West's June 9 WorldNetDaily column touts a new study claiming that "More than 80 percent of the mosques in the study feature Islamic literature that advocates violence." West does concede a little bias by noting that study co-author David Yerushalmi is "one of my 18 co-authors on the book 'Shariah: The Threat to America.'"

West won't concede -- as we noted when a WND "news" article similiarly failed to do so -- that Yerushalmi has been cited by the Anti-Defamation League for his "record of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and anti-black bigotry," and that the methodology of his study has been questioned.

But such things don't matter to West; all she seems to care about is that someone she can portray as authoritative (as long as you hide the evidence to the contrary) has produced "alarming data on the promotion of violence within Islam in American mosques."
