About ten years ago I got to know Brigitte Gabriel, a woman extraordinaire. We corresponded over the years and I got to meet her in Toronto. It was like an old time reunion.
In 2006, she gave a blockbuster speech at the Heritage Institute about her experiences in Lebanon in the seventies and eighties when she was growing up, her experiences in Israel where she moved to and then in the US. Set aside an hour to listen to this speech, you won’t regret it. Its a once in a lifetime speech. And do listen to the questions and answers.
In 2002, Brigitte founded ACT for America. Under her guidance, it grew to become the largest and most important organization in America for combatting the evils of Islam. Here’s what it stands for
“ACT! for America is an issues advocacy organization dedicated to effectively organizing and mobilizing the most powerful grassroots citizen action network in America. We are committed to informed and coordinated civic action that will lead to public policies that promote America’s national security and the defense of American democratic values against the assault of radical Islam.
“The fight against Islamofascism is a fight I know all too well. I was born in Lebanon and raised as a Christian. When the Lebanese Civil War broke out, our family and our Maronite community came under vicious attack by Islamic extremists. They promised to destroy us, and today the country is nearly all Islamic.”
Brigitte authored They Must be Stopped
