Who is behind THE ANGELL FOUNDATION ?
This picture is in fact to be found at the "ANGELL FOUNDATION"
This is their address:
The president of the ANGELL FOUNDATION is one "Perry Oretzky".
So I did a search for Perry, and found this at zoom info:

Strange. Wasn't David Angell's brother a Roman Catholic reverend?
"Kenneth Anthony Angell (born August 3, 1930) is an American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Anthony_Angell
The first link I clicked on from that site reveals official 9/11 perp/shill propaganda:
"What I think you need to point out to your audience is that this new fashionable atheism was, in large measure, spurred by the events of 9/11. This was an event of such monumental horror, filth, and savagery, that it made many people feel?and somewhat understandably?that religion just isn’t worth the price. Even if we recognize that, for many, religion turns the switches between hope and despair, empowerment and defeatism, possibility and limitations?even still, religion’s excesses are too heavy a burden when weighed against its many gains. That’s what I think underlies this new secularist bent. And quite honestly, I’m not sure there’s anything you can say that will dissuade someone who feels this way.
Coming back to your assigned task of “What is Islam,” and the distinction between “moderate” and “extreme,” I think you have to acknowledge the reason this question is being raised at all is because there have been many recent terrorist acts in the name of Islam. Your audience no doubt recognizes that most Muslims aren’t terrorists so there’s no need to belabor that point. But I think there is a lingering question in many people’s minds (including my own)as to why it is that after nine years, there hasn’t been a more energetic and widespread outcry against terrorism by the Muslim community? I know some brave souls have spoken out and they are to be commended for their courage and goodwill. But what’s needed is a mass Islamic movement that proclaims anyone who commits an act of terror in God’s name goes to hell as straight as an arrow. If there were a widespread condemnation of terrorist acts within the Islamic world, I’ve no doubt we’d see far less of it. And one can only wonder why such a display of Muslim outrage against terrorism hasn’t been forthcoming. That is a question for Muslims to answer.
As to why it is that specifically the Western revealed religions are targeted, I think this has to do with our climate of political correctness. It won’t do to point out that it is only Muslims who today advocate extreme violence against innocents in the name of their religion. People want to lump recent acts of terrorism with events like the Crusades, the Holy Wars, and the Inquisitions, that occurred centuries ago. It doesn’t wash. The fact is the majority of recent violent actions, committed in the name of a specific religion, are Islamic. That’s the way it is and that’s the reason you were asked to give this talk. You can emphasize that the majority of Muslims are wonderful people and you are not in any way impugning them or their religion by noting that terrorist acts in the world today are committed by Muslims."
