Patrick Poole is a national security and terrorism correspondent for the US-based PJMedia, sometimes described as a 'radical Islam expert'. He runs the Unconstrained Analytics website with Stephen Coughlin.


In February 2007, Poole claimed that a "popular Islamic studies program is bringing Wahhabi extremism and Muslim Brotherhood activism into mosques and Muslim student groups throughout North America." The evidence he cited included Channel Four's Undercover Mosque programme.[1]

An article by Poole in FrontPage Magazine was cited by the British think tank Policy Exchange in a private briefing against the Global Peace and Unity event in London revealed in October 2008.

Poole met Geert Wilders at the Conservative Political Action Conference on February 27, 2009.

Honestly, I don’t know much about Geert Wilders’ politics. I only met the man briefly, and I heard his stump speech twice on Friday. But anyone who has a stack of fatwas calling for his death because of his willingness to speak out against the global jihad is going to receive my support, regardless of any politically incorrect view he may or may not hold.[2]



Has received financial support from the Middle East Forum's Education Fund (MEFEF). [4]
