About Me

My name is Daniel Greenfield. I am a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. My beat at Front Page Magazine, its blog, The Point, and my own blog, DanielGreenfield.org/SultanKnish covers everything from the Left's war on America at home to Islamic terror abroad.

I was named a "hate group of one" by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC may not have been too happy that I caught them faking statistics

I have appeared on the shows of Tucker Carlson, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and many others. "You are one of many people who have given me feedback that my reading and interpretation of that piece by Daniel Greenfield was of profound enlightenment," Rush Limbaugh said of my writing.

From exposing Biden's theft of money from 9/11 victims to fund the Taliban to surveying the Most Corrupt Village in America to racial quotas in the military to being among the first to break the story of government mandates causing widespread COVID deaths in nursing homes, I cover everything.

My investigative pieces have included the story of Obama and Pfleger, which I broke months before the mainstream media. I also broke the story of many of Obama's radical clergy ties, including Farrakhan supporters, I revealed that the Vice-President of the Center for American Progress and the former senior adviser for Nancy Pelosi had participated in terrorist fundraising 

Around the world, I document the hard truths about diversity terror migration, in depth pieces on terrorist attacks in Europe, across Israel and right here in this country

I also delve into history such as when demonstrated conclusively, using historical documents that American soldiers in the Philippines did use pig corpses to deter Islamic terrorists. My work disproved multiple false media "fact checks" of President Trump.

That series, along with my piece on how Carter had banned Iranian students during the hostage crisis upended conventional media narratives.

My pamphlet, The Great Betrayal, documented the detailed history of betrayals and lies in Obama's wars, from Afghanistan to Iraq to Libya.

I have covered assassinations in Argentina, Iran's meth empire , the coverup of Islamic genocide in Nigeria and the lost history of Harlem's Black Hitler. I broke the story of the Secretary of State recognizing a terrorist propagandist with an award as one of the International Women of Courage and exposed the falsehoods in Prince of Slaves, an Islamic propaganda film aired on PBS. 

The scope of my writing covers everything from domestic American politics to creeping Islamism in Scotland and how foreign aid makes its way into the hands of terrorists to white aborigines in Australia, Islamist Imams in Libya,  flogging in the Maldives and the hunt for witches in the Muslim world.

    I met your comments at hashkafah.com , and it was such a pleasure to read them. Your thoughtful, compassionate, pragmatic, insightful views restored my low morale. You always seem so level headed,give brillant answers. I think AHA! this person knows the Torah.

  10. I'm currently reading "From Beirut to Jerusalem" by Thomas Friedman, have you read it?

  11. I've read it, but Friedman tends to have terrorist sympathies

  12. Nice profile photo.
    It fits well since you are a blog warrior.

    Hi Sultan: One of your videos was posted in the Canadian Coalition for Democracies forum. Followed the links and I find myself at your blog which is great by the way. Pleasantly surprised to find references to Israpundit, which I read when I can stand it. I mean of course that all this insanity really gets on my nerves and interferes with my day-to-day functioning so I have to give it a break now and then. I don't know how you and all the others out there blogging daily about the madness in our world can stand it. I really admire your dedication and tenacity. Ted and the gang at Israpundit are brilliant analysts and we're trying to keep on top of things in Canada at CCD by exposing the Islamists in Canada. You should check us out sometime.

    Best to you and your blog. Will add you to my roster of blogs that I visit to keep up-to-date on all the nasty.

    "Terror Cancer Cure"--excellent. Hits the nail smack on the head. Readable, succinct, motivating, and encouraging because it lets us know there are others who can tell the Good Guys from the Bad Guys. And who understand the importance of joining up with the Good Guys. Thank you!

    I scanned your blog briefly and your comments against Islam are intelligent and refreshing. However you fail to recognise the inherent fault in all religion, that will continue to manifest itself so long as faith is treated as a virtue in these backward societies. The defeat of Islam will not be acheived by some rival religious group, but by the next stage in our social-evolution towards rational humanists. Education, science and comedy are all enemies of religion and Islam in particular.

  30. If anything the rational humanists and the countries that have gone post-religious are the biggest force promoting the spread of Islam

    that is something you may wish to consider

  31. Anonymous27/8/09

    I like your answer about rational humanists and post-religious societies.

  32. I have read many of your articles. I am fascinated by the work you do and admire and respect what you do. If rational humanist and countries that are post-religious are promoters of ISlam then what can stop it?
    Or is this a natural cycle, that we will have to go through and live the dark ages one more time so that then we can live the age of reason again?

  33. That is a difficult question. We may be seeing the form into which Western civilization has poured itself into destroying itself, much as Rome did, because it has become intellectually and socially unsustainable.

    Reform to a more stable system, one which has clearer limits and a focus on something besides the progressive utopian vision of an all encompassing governmental social system, might save them.

    The problem goes deeper than government though, from the birth rates, to the culture, there is a profound death impulse in the blood pulse of Western civilization. If it is not stopped, the lemmings will hit the cliff.

    Hi, I'm wondering what is the significance of "Sultan Knish" as your blogging name?

  35. Hoodyjmes29/8/11

    Thanks for your rib-tickling op-ed in the August 5th Jewish press titled Tours For Israel Hating Leftists. You ought to be required reading in high schools and colleges. And congress. The best way to reach them is through laughter, and the best way to deflate the dangerous propaganda balloon of Islam and silly Leftists is to ridicule them. You do it so very, very well. Best of Luck. AuntHoo

    I have been a fan of your site for 2 years now and have recommended it constantly to dozens of people , who, in turn , I hope have fwd'd the recommendation on. As a N American Jew who believes that Israel needs to keep Judea and Samaria, I also realize from seeing up close - I mean in going beyond the green line, the diversity ( I hate the word, but its appropriate here)of Jewish views there. From my visits to the Malchut, Elon Moreh, Gates of Shechem sites, I wonder what you think of the future endeavors of the people in that area to usher in a Moshiach age? Jumping the gun at this time? ...this with respect to the current political situation in the country,of course...name: Not Ovenready

  37. Anonymous10/10/11

    I should also add that I have never encountered a writer who so often has echoed the thoughts in my own mind or has the insight to what is causing what.
    Not Ovenready.

  38. Ushering in the age of Moshiach is in Hashem's hands. But we can try to live as we should and that includes reclaiming an independent nation where we can do that.

  39. I am stunned with the brilliance of a couple of your articles I just came across on FB (Republicans Abroad Israel)


    I hope to learn much more from you! I have posted a couple of your articles on my FB page.

    Have a great weekend!

    I have thought highly of your essays and have copied and saved several of your articles from Canada Free Press. Your insight is expressed with precision and power, and illuminates thoughts at the periphery of my experience.

    Your blog will be a resource I will certainly visit often.

    PS How do I "comment" as myself rather than using the drop down menu.

    ... wait, maybe, I just did.

  44. Have long enjoyed being a subscriber,,, And Thank You for all you do.
    One word describes the work you do, and the apparent person you are - AWESOME.


  45. thank you Grouchy, it's appreciated

  46. Wow, Simply Wow. I read you posts and simply feel the smarter & better for it. Great content and stunningly clear and sophisticated exposition.

  47. Anonymous8/11/13

    Sir: well thought out & written piece.

    Recommendation: if you have not done so, by all means read JSchumpeter's Democracy, Socialism & Capitalism. It is best known for the 'creative destruction' line about capitalism. But to many that is a 3rd order concept in the book when so much more matters there.

    His analysis of the inter-action between entrepreneurs, capitalists, business-owners, business-founders, the political class (particularly socialists ....and he uses the term more generically as defined by the time .....1930s/1940s) , and labor/general populace is probably the most insightful & accurate examination of this subtle, but crucial, area of modern economic development thought ever written. It goes beyond economics such that it is appropriate for your read in light of what your "Gov't is Magic" post covers.

  49. dude, you are a total badass. these are two of the most genius lines I've ever read, ever.

    "Compassionate people who care about others are always "smarter", no matter how stupid they might be, because they care about the world around them."

    "his supporters know that they are smart because they support a smart man and Obama knows he is smart because so many smart people support him."

    I'm sorry. It wasn't fair for me to ask you that question about being Jewish, etc., without my telling you about me. I am Orthodox, associated with Lubavitch. I am also very pro Israel. Now you know about me - what about you?

    Your " about me " details merit up at the top of the page, sir.

  62. Well, this article has been read by at least a few Army Drill Sergeants. You actually managed to put into printed distillation all our collected verbal explosions and physical tantrums... without, you know, the bad stuff...

  63. I read your article on the girl who abused the Prophet Muhammad and saw how you advocated her and ridiculed the Muhammad. Freedom of speech is your right is so is mine. so i wonder; have you even read the Quran and have you even given thought to the life of Muhammad before actually commenting on it ? Do you have references and evidence when you accuse him of being a rapist? Are you even aware of the history of islam or do you just like to blab without any logic?

  64. “Muhammad was a pedophile and rapist?
    Most historians agree that Aisha and Muhammad were married after she reached puberty. They place her age, on average, around 13 years old at the time of marriage, though she may have been betrothed to him much earlier. You need to keep in mind that while many westerners might not have heard of Islam prior to September 11th, Muhammad lived in the early 600s A.D. It might surprise them to learn that marriage at such an early age was extremely common not only in the Arab world, but the Western world as well. King John of England married a 12-year-old around 1198. Romeo’s love, Juliet, was only 13. No subset of people is more hated in the West than pedophiles. An attempt to cast the founder of the perceived enemy as a pedophile would certainly benefit the war effort.

  65. Mohammed married Aisha when she was far younger than 13


    Mohammed had sex slaves, like the Caliph of ISIS.


  66. I thought I was well informed until I started reading your stuff. This is the most insightful line I've read in a long time: ... Its target audience lives and thinks in terms of premium cable shows. They are to it what novels were to its 19th century counterparts.


    BTW - Why are comments on the "About Me" page? I found them by accident.

  67. The great pity is that you have made the mist uncivilized city in the west, your Home.

  68. HOW REFRESHING TO FIND YOUR BLOG ! After over 30 years in the West, mainly in London. I was born in an Eastern European communist country and miraculously defected to the West in my twenties. The environment required that I was identifying correctly the political context, content and cause and effect of any communication, act or event which crossed my path. A life saving skill I had to develop to keep out of police cells, prison or worse. Help was at hand from occasional prohibited literature and printed media and daily from Uncle Sam : Free Europe Radio on short waves.
    Once in the West I received the most precious gift...life with true personal freedom in every respect. However increasingly since 1997 in the UK and 2008 in the USA my well tested political instincts raised bigger and bigger red flags, ending up currently in a worse situation than under the communist regime. At least then I knew, by contrast, who were the goodies. Now I can hardly trust anyone on anything. Either Western leaders or the content of International media. Meanwhile the internet, with a few but notable exceptions, is very much a reflection of every shade and colour of arbitrary individual views at a time of endemic political confusion and cultural and moral decadence. ISIS is right. It has integrity while the West doesn`t anymore. The tragedy is that what ISI has integrity in is the opposite of what enlightened humans have aspired to since the dawn of time.
    With that in mind... again... HOW REFRESHING TO FIND YOUR BLOG ! THANK YOU !

  69. I'm glad you made it out and I appreciate that you like my writing.

    Just read "A Tale of Two Funerals in New York". Enjoyed the analysis. Powerful conclusions.

  82. I'm a 1-person protester in southern Oregon. I walk up and down the main street of town, wearing signs on the front and back of my shirt - "WE are essential!" "ALL businesses are essential" "FIGHT BACK AND OPEN!" "Don't let the stinking governor take away your rights! OPEN your business!" etc. Nobody pays attention, they're all huddling in their homes, and I see people inside cars with windows rolled up, wearing masts! I REFUSE to comply! But I'm only 1. The U.S. is DYING and there aren't any true PATRIOTS to fight for her. I am only ONE.

  83. I respectfully direct you to information regarding the tagging of synagogues in Fairfax area and Los Angeles. Some Perpetrators are Alt-right gangs stirring up revolution, not BLM, and not street gangs. Email me if you want to know where to search. Other denominations were tagged
