Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch, a project of the David Horowitz Freedom Center[1] He is also the co-author with ultra-Zionist Pamela Geller of a book in which they allege that US President Barack Obama, whom he has suggested may be a Muslim,[2] is waging a 'war on America.' In a joint video message, Geller has referred to Obama as 'the anti-Semite in the White House' who will bring about a 'second Holocaust', a view which Spencer affirms. Yet, despite Spencer's extreme views, he was recently invited to explain Islam to the Tidewater Joint Terrorism Task Force, one of the law enforcement and intelligence coalitions established and after 9/11.[3] In 2009, the American Library Association had to cancel an event on Islam after all panelists withdrew after finding out that Spencer was also included without their being informed.[4] He is also a supporter of the EDL.

In April 2009, Spencer was invited to speak in Cologne by Pro Köln. Following criticism by blogger Charles Johnson, Spencer said "I have not confirmed that I will be attending, and am looking into the group and the people involved".[5]


On Barack Obama

In a book co-authored with Pamela Geller, Spencer has argued that Obama is waging a 'war on America.' But in a joint video message Spencer and Geller accused Obama of more heinous crimes:

Pamela Geller: 'It is not enough to fetishize the dead Jews that were murdered in WWII...[we must] make sure that it doesn't happen again. Because a second holocaust is coming. Six million Jews are in the Jewish homeland of Israel. It is now up to you and me to stop — well — the anti-Semite in the White House, and his useful idiots in the Congress.'
Robert Spencer: 'That's right'.[6]
