Jill Carroll: Anti-American Anti-Semite

Debbie Schlussel got an email from someone who says he attended Arabic language school with Carroll, and she says his bona fides check out.

She was very anti-American. I was actually shocked by her attitude, having never come across an American with such opinions. She was against the war and did not see America as being a force for good in the world.... She expressed satisfaction that I mistook her for Canadian saying she would prefer not being identified as American.

She was more than anti-war. She felt that America was culturally imperialist. She viewed the international success of American culture as being a way for America to impose its values on the world. She expressed the sort of opinions which you would hear from [Noam] Chomsky. It would be fair to say that she would be classified as somebody from the far left. I can not recall all the details of what she said, but I remember her saying that at the end of the day America was just another empire which would come hopefully to an end.

With regard to Israel, she despised the country with some venom, referring to the country as "that state." She was practically foaming at the mouth. She knew I was Jewish, and I felt quite shocked and vulnerable at the way she expressed herself about the country. It did cross my mind that she may have been anti-Semitic, though I prefer not to label people.

She was at her wits end with regard to Christian support in America for Israel and referred to the Bible as "that shit book" in regard to it being used as a reason for Israelis holding on to the land.

...

When she was kidnapped, I sent emails to the CS Monitor informing them of what I knew of her opinions. I felt that the information might aid them in presenting her as anti-war and hence save her life. Her opinions were so strongly expressed that I was in no doubt that the terrorists would free her. I can tell you honestly that the opinions she expressed in the video would strike me as being hers alone and I am not surprised that she was freed.

Yes, I'm sure that strongly held (and vicious) opinions like this never taint a reporter's story with bias. They went to journalism school for a year and a half, after all.

Thanks to Allah.
