On August 8th, it was brought to our attention via an article written by Robert Spencer that there was a factual error in our review of Jihad Watch. In our original review we stated that both the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League labeled Mr. Spencer as a White Nationalist. In fact, it was only the Southern Poverty Law Center that has made this claim.
The Anti-Defamation League has not claimed that Mr. Spencer is a White Nationalist. When they reviewed his Stop Islamization of America Organization they characterized Mr. Spencer as an “anti-Muslim activist” and not a White Nationalist.
Based on this error, and receipt of a Cease and Desist letter from Mr. Spencer’s attorney, we have complied with their request and removed the Jihad Watch source page. We will re-review Jihad Watch in the future, when time permits. We apologize to Mr. Spencer for this error and to our readers for removal of this source.
