Former terrorist defends his bad name

First the Jerusalem Post published an article about two weeks ago questioning whether Walid Shoebat, the self-described terrorist-turned-Israel supporter, was ever really a terrorist. Today he fires back with his own Post article, saying yes he was:

Despite all the evidence I provided the Post about my ties and that of my family to terror, the paper preferred to absolve me from my terrorist past and to believe my relatives, whose own links to terrorism seems irrelevant and who are glad to deny my terror links and my own confession.
