The Use and Abuse of the Anti-Terrorism Act

1-Jewish power in America It is a formidable challenge to criticize anti-terrorism measures without seeming callous, naïve, or cynical. On the one hand, the use of indiscriminate violence to achieve political or religious aims should be condemned and the victims of such acts treated with compassion. On the other hand, we must live in the real world. In that world, there are persons and groups whose professed sympathy for victims of terrorism is imbued with, one might even say masks, a large dose of narrow self-interest — a self-interest that, put in action, dangerously skews the enactment, interpretation, and enforcement of such laws. Take, for example, the United States’ Anti-Terrorism Act, 18 U.S.C. 2333 (the “ATA”), and the uses made of it by what one might call the Jewish Ethnocentric Network (“JEN”).[1] The ATA may have had commendable, albeit limited, purposes at its creation, but over the last decade it has undergone a radical transformation, to the point that it is now a potent weapon to advance JEN causes at the expense of larger American interests.
