Your moral and mental clarity

Dear Gadi - just saw the news about your accepting the position of National Field Director for SIOA (Stop the Islamization Of America) and want to send my congratulations. Cannot think of a better person than you to take this on, together with the rest of the superb SIOA leadership. Your moral and mental clarity on the threat to our Constitution and the American way of life that is posed by Shari'a is an inspiration for us all.

SIOA is an excellent initiative and I'm glad to see you at the forefront of its program...ready to help support you and SIOA in any way possible.

With very best regards,

Breaking the Islamist threat down to its most basic

Gadi Adelman has the rare ability of making the complex world of anti-terrorism simple, clear, concise, and easy to understand.  Breaking the Islamist threat down to its most basic historical political elements is essential to understanding the true nature of our enemies.  Gadi Adelman is way beyond political correctness making his work fresh, honest, provocative, and truthful above all else – a rare commodity these days.

Gadi is on-target each and every time.

Whenever Gadi publishes an article for our web site,, I know we are going to have robust response from both sides of the terrorism issue. This agitation lets us know how spot-on Gadi is in his reporting.  As we often say, "You don't take any flak if you are not directly over the target." Gadi is on-target each and every time.

I want to complement you on your lucid and heart-felt article about creeping Sharia

Dear Mr. Adelman,

I want to complement you on your lucid and heart-felt article about creeping Sharia.  Somehow Americans are under the notion that these laws are merely "religious laws," which we should tolerate them since they apply only to Muslims.  Wrong.  Sharia Law invades every aspect of lives of Muslims, and worse yet, non-Muslims get impacted, too. There is an excellent comparison of Sharia Law with the U.S. Constitution at We should never lose sight of the fact that Sharia Law actually violates the provisions of our constitution.  One can't claim to be "American" and still embrace Sharia Law.

I very much enjoyed your common sense

I very much enjoyed your common sense, down to earth approach to the definition of terrorism, as well as the beginning of the article where you point out that the suicidal Austin, TX plane crash is definitely not terrorism.  As a pilot and a reporter (and, coincidentally, an Israeli), I find just about all coverage of aviation issues atrociously poor and, in many cases, biased.

In my opinion, coverage is worse with General Aviation.  It seems since there are less stringent security standards, the media and politicians are happy to jump on GA stories and blast the TSA for their lack of regulations, while failing to notice that a terrorist attack from a single engine airplane would fail to, by your definition, "intimidate or coerce a civilian population."

In the most recent case, the fact that very few reporters had any idea how the aviation/air traffic control system works only exacerbated the problem.  Theoretically, a 747 taking off from Austin-Bergrstrom International Airport could've done the exact same thing.  It's very difficult, if not impossible, to stop a crazed pilot who doesn't pop up on watch lists.

One last thought.  Maybe I'm biased as an Israeli, but I think we have a very different perspective on terrorism and how to deal with terrorism, simply because it's a reality we've known far longer than many populations.

Anyway, I just wanted to send an appreciative note from a fellow reporter!

I can't believe what I've just read.

Dear Mr. Adelman,

I can't believe what I've just read.  Actually, I can.  I've been following this since joining Act for America.  I think people are getting it, but we got a slow start, while the miserable Muslims have duped us.  Thank you so much for your article.  It hits it on the head.  You can be sure I'll pass it on.
