Roots of Terrorism

Date: 08-10-06
Host: George Noory
Guests: Walid Shoebat, Peter Lance

A former member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), Walid Shoebat, shared how he came to be an advocate for the Jewish people. As a youth he witnessed Israel's victorious Six Day War while living in Jericho, and after that time a pervasive atmosphere of hatred towards Jews and Israel spread in Arab communities and began to be taught in schools, along with Islamic eschatology. He also noted that many displaced Palestinians were kept in refugee camps as a kind of "political pawn" by Arab governments.

A racist ideology is used as recruitment by such groups as the PLO, who start off by denying the Holocaust, and seek to change all Jewish holy places into Muslim ones, Shoebat reported. As a teenager he joined the PLO and was involved in rioting in Israel, where he was briefly imprisoned. Later, while studying in the United States he came to the realization that everything he was taught about the Jews was a lie, and he eventually began speaking out on the issue, with his insider perspective.
