This is the last of a series of three articles on an expose in which part one focused on the ties between Bill and Hillary Clinton with multiple Islamic organizations that comprise of or support terrorists and part two which focused on Barack Obama and his family ties with dangerous Islamic organizations. In this final piece, it’s imperative to understand how deeply embedded Islamic groups like the Brotherhood are in our government and all areas of society, and how we allowed this to happen.
In part two of this series, I focused on Obama, and how his ties to Sunni Islam have influenced his actions and inactions in the Middle East during the past few years and during the Arab Spring. Because of his ties to Sunni Islam, Wahibism and the Muslim Brotherhood it makes his words spoken before an audience in Cairo, Egypt back in 2009 a lot more clear.
“…America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles… tolerance and the dignity of all human beings… I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story. The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796, our second President, John Adams, wrote, “The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims.” And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States. They have fought in our wars, they have served in our government, they have stood for civil rights, they have started businesses, they have taught at our universities, they’ve excelled in our sports arenas; they’ve won Nobel Prizes, built our tallest building, and lit the Olympic Torch. And when the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same Holy Koran that one of our Founding Fathers — Thomas Jefferson — kept in his personal library…”
Really? Islam has always been a part of America’s story, especially after the Revolutionary War there was settling the matter of American ships being raided, men taken hostage and ordered to pay tribute to Muslim pirates and marauders. The reason Thomas Jefferson had a Koran was from his days as ambassador to France when he met then Ambassador to Britain, John Adams and Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the British Ambassador from Algiers in London. After treaty talks failed in 1805, Jefferson said of the idea of continuing to pay tribute to pirates, “Too long, for the honor of nations, have those Barbarians been [permitted] to trample on the sacred faith of treaties, on the rights and laws of human nature!” So Jefferson called on the Marines.
US Marines rescued the kidnapped crew of the USS Philadelphia in Tripoli after winning the battle against the Muslims. The Marines’ victory helped Prince Hamet Bey reclaim his rightful throne as ruler of Tripoli. In gratitude, he presented his Mameluke sword to Lt Presley O’Bannon who commanded the Marines and the sword eventually became part of the officer uniform in 1825. It is still in use by the Corps today and the words “to the shores of Tripoli” from the Marine Corps Hymn are still sung. I guess Obama forgot about that little bit of American History.
“So I have known Islam on three continents … That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear… Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state in our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders… So let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America…”
Obama goes on to mention the Israeli/Palestinian situation, claiming “America’s strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable…Too many tears have been shed. Too much blood has been shed. All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer…”
Yet, it is the children of Muslims who are taught to hate through cartoons, who grow up learning how to shoot Israelis, who are dressed up in fatigues and suicide vests. It’s the Israeli children who have bomb shelters in their playgrounds. And as for Jerusalem, Blessed be the Lord out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.
Jerusalem is mentioned in the Bible over 700 times (Never in the Koran) yet it is the Islamic Dome which sits on the site of the Jewish Temple Mount and it has been the Christians who are driven from the ‘Little Town of Bethlehem’, the birthplace of our Lord and Savior which has been taken over by Muslims.
“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance… I saw it first-hand as a child in Indonesia, where devout Christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country…”
Worship freely? In historically Christian nations Islam, including Salafism is spreading in Europe, and Christians are being persecuted, even though many of those nations were Christian centuries before Muhammad was even born. And as for the Christians, half of those persecuted are under the age of six.
“Freedom of religion is central to the ability of peoples to live together… we’re forging service projects in America to bring together Christians, Muslims, and Jews. That’s why we welcome efforts like Saudi Arabian King Abdullah’s interfaith dialogue and Turkey’s leadership in the Alliance of Civilizations. On education, we will expand exchange programs, and increase scholarships… At the same time, we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities. And we will match promising Muslim students with internships in America; invest in online learning for teachers and children around the world...”
It all sounds so peaceful and inspiring, except that throughout his speech, Obama promised what would be done for the Muslim, spoke most about problems facing Muslims, and focused on education for Muslims. He praised Muslims, and devoted more time speaking from the Muslim Koran than he did of the Christian Bible. Some might think that he was being diplomatic because he was in Egypt, yet what about the thousands of Coptic Christians in Egypt, who had been suffering from persecution and their churches being bombed within months of Obama’s speech?
Obama talks about Turkey’s “leadership” in the Alliance of Civilizations, which according to their website, “launched in 2005 by the Prime Ministers of Turkey and Spain… later adopted by the Secretary General of the United Nations to become a UN initiative.”
The website explains, “The atmosphere of mutual distrust, fear and polarization prevalent in recent years… The Alliance aims at stemming this trend by garnering a broad coalition to foster greater cross-cultural tolerance and understanding… and intends to generate a political will to counter prejudices, stereotypes and reciprocal misgivings between and among persons and groups belonging to different religious and cultural backgrounds…”
Again, it sounds like a noble idea- until one looks at who is spreading hate and intolerance, and who is on the receiving end. The Alliance is an offshoot of the Dialogue among Civilizations which was begun by the former President of Iran, Mohammad Khatami who was considered a moderate and pro-democracy leader. During meetings which were also praised by the UN’s leadership at the time, Kofi Annan (Oil for Food scandal- watching slaughter in Rwanda), as it is now under the new title of the Alliance, Israeli’s were shunned and no dialogue ever happened with them. Now, as back then, the many nations taking a role in the Alliance are made up of Muslims who hate America and Israel and out of the multitude of countries listed as “Friends” Israel is not among them.
The point is, there are literally hundreds of Muslim Outreaches, Committees, Counsels, Federations, Coalitions, Brotherhoods, Societies, Associations, Dialogues, Leagues, Forums, Institutes, Assemblies, Alliances, Organizations and Groups- all saying the same thing about promoting interfaith dialogue, education, combatting misconceptions, hate and discrimination. They all claim to work towards mutual understanding through education and outreach. Yet when it comes to terrorist activities, they may object to it and decry publically those who participate yet they are often times those who provide backdoor funding.
All of these groups which are participated in by progressives in politics, news media and the entertainment industries, equate the ideals of tyrannical regimes with the principles of free societies and claim to support freedom of speech or religion, when it’s the brand of Islam ideology they want promoted, yet are the first to prohibit others rights in their own communities and countries. They all give equal criticism to actions of the United States or Israel in defending themselves against terrorists with the acts of the terrorists, they all equate radical Islam with Christianity while denying the doctrine of Christianity and persecute those who would convert to Christianity, and they all say “We have a shared responsibility…” Yet no one wants to take responsibility for the millions dead by Muslim terrorist activities, spawned by ‘education’ at Islamic Universities and alliances.
Obama praised Turkey‘s leadership, yet last year Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan equated Zionism with crimes against humanity, and declared that ‘Islamophobia’ was a crime against humanity.
Remember in the earlier part of this series I mentioned that Obama has aligned himself with those who want to bring the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (a revival of the Ottoman Empire) into a Caliphate? Some have been pointing to Erdogan as the Caliph.
This is the man who when as Mayor of Istanbul remarked, “Democracy is merely a train that we ride until we reach our goal. Mosques are our military barracks, minarets are our spears, and domes are our helmets” He also called the time of Christian emperors in Byzantium “a dark chapter” in history.
Talk of Ergodan and the Caliphate started popping up on the internet around 2011 when the Arab Spring was in full swing. And why not; after all, the last caliphate was located in Istanbul, Turkey and for 400 years, Istanbul was the political center of the Muslim world. Turkish sultans ruled the Ottoman Empire as caliphs from 1517 until the empire fell after World War I and the caliphate was abolished in 1924.
Some believe a restored caliphate will usher in the Islamic messiah- the 12th Imam Mahdi, and while Sunni and Shia may disagree on tactics, most Islamic groups share the goal of restoring the caliphate, especially in the majority Sunni community, and as covered earlier, this includes groups such as the Taliban, al Qaeda, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and others. The Muslim Brotherhood was actually created in 1928 for the sole purpose of restoring the caliphate, and their number one goal ever since has been to set up a global Islamic government.
The process of instituting Sharia, according to the Muslim Brotherhood:
Settlement: Islam and its Movement become a part of the homeland it lives in.
Establishment: “Islam turns into firmly rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built.
Stability: Islam is stable in the land on which its people move.
Enablement: Islam is enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country in which it moves. Rooting: Islam is resident and not a passing thing, or rooted ‘entrenched’ in the soil of the spot where it moves and not a strange plant to it.
Remember Obama’s words when considering the process includes building mosques and Islamic centers, building Islamic organizations, building Islamic schools, then the “overt Islamic Movement” and coordinating all Islamic “movements.”
Islam is a very patient ideology and Muslims are willing to work quietly for decades to achieve their goals.
I mentioned the main players in the first parts of this series, so I’d like to turn the spotlight on a handful of others, including Republicans who have had either a willfully passive role, or who have had direct roles in helping the spread of Islam in the US.
Settlement, Establishment, Stability, Enablement and Rooting
Libertarian leader Dr. Ron Paul has said that Islam is not a threat to the nation and believes that terrorists attacked on September 11, 2001 because of US involvement in Iraq. Paul has made many speeches such as this and so have others- is it any wonder why Muslims find in him an ally, “Their kind of Republican”.
Islam seems to be at the Rooting stage within the Republican Party, as becoming ‘entrenched’’. Take for instance, John McCain who has had clear opposition to the brotherhood, and admittedly said that the Brotherhood is a radical group that wholly supports sharia and has ties with other terrorist organizations, yet he vehemently disparages anyone who questions the ties of the Brotherhood in our Government. Or someone such as Grover Norquist, who has been a mover in Conservative politics since the early 80’s under Ronald Reagan. He’s the founder of Americans for Tax Reform and worked with Former Speaker Newt Gingrich on the Contract with America in 1994. Norquist is on the board of the ACU- American Conservatives Union and is married a Palestinian Muslim. In 2007 he promoted and worked to get Suhail Khan elected to the ACU as well. Suhail Kahn is an American born Muslim, whose father was an early founder of the Muslim Students Association (MSA), a founding member of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a founding member of the Muslim Community Association (MCA), and the founder of American Muslims for Global Peace and Justice. Some of these groups are mentioned in part 2 of this series, and have terrorist ties.
Kahn’s mother, Malika Khan, was a founding member of the MCA and a board member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) California chapter. This is the man who told PolitiChicks’ Chief Editor and National Director Ann-Marie Murrell she was using “Alinsky like” tactics when she asked him about his statement the year before that there is no Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.
Frank Gaffney has been one of the most diligent voices about Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration into the US and wrote extensively on Norquist and Kahan in 2003 in a piece called A Troubling Influence. In the article, Mr. Gaffney spoke of and exposed the enabling of ‘radical’ Islam by Grover Norquist, telling about Norquist’s becoming the founding chairman of an organization called the Islamic Institute who’s stated purpose was to “cultivate Muslim-Americans and Arab-Americans whose attachment to conservative family values and capitalism made them potential allies for the Republican Party in advance of the 2000 presidential election.”
What is so troubling is that during the past 11 years, Gaffney, David Horowitz, Robert Spencer, Pamela Gellar, Jamie Glazov and others have been warning about the Brotherhood in the GOP, and of the spread of Islam through Sharia in the US and people still don’t seem to care.
Islam in our nation’s schools
Another Republican who some may not realize has helped Saudi based Wahibism infiltrate our country through education is Texas Governor Rick Perry. I remember reading about Perry’s connections before the 2012 Presidential Primaries, and of his support of the Aga Khan Development Network and Foundation. When Robert Spencer and Pamela Gellar reported on this, the Conservative blogosphere went crazy and it wasn’t pretty.
Perry is a friend of the Aga Khan, the religious leader of the Ismailis and founder of the Foundation. The Ismailis is a sect of Shia Islam that claims 15 to 20 million adherents worldwide. The Aga Khan is a title for Imam, given to those who are to be claimed a direct lineage to Mohammed. He owns or controls a huge international network of business and philanthropic ventures, is very wealthy, his father was for a time married to the actress Rita Hayworth, and in 2010 Forbes put his net worth at $800 million.
The friendship between Perry and Khan was questioned because of the Islamic friendly education curriculum which was implemented in Texas schools and through what is known as CSCOPE, and also the ties between the foundation and terrorists. According to Pamela Gellar, the Network spent $40 million to develop business in Syria, which at the time had been listed by the State Department as among State Sponsors of Terrorism and for years has allowed the jihad terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah to operate out of Damascus
Not only has Texas been dealing with curriculum based on Islam, such as children dressing up in burkas and learning about allah, but schools all over the country have been teaching about Islam. Taught under the umbrella of multiculturalism and culture, it has somehow bypassed the so called separation of church and state issues. While progressives and atheist groups would go crazy if school children went on a field trip to a Baptist church to learn and observe a baptism, there is very little said about students being taken to a mosque, where they are invited to attend the prayer. While our nation’s schools have eradicated the 10 Commandments from classrooms, no one seems to have a problem with the 5 pillars of Islam because it’s taught as culture. Islamic Religious extremists from Turkey and those based in Saudi Arabia have had a huge influence on what America’s K-12 kids learn about Islam and the Middle East and have given millions of dollars to organizations that produce K-12 curricula whose ideological leanings are sympathetic to Islamic fundamentalism and of course, critical of the United states and Israel. Much of it is also supported by our tax dollars.
In Universities and Colleges across the country, The Saudis have exploited the Title VI of the Higher Education Act, which authorizes federal grants to college and university programs which are most notably at Middle East Studies Centers on certain campuses described as to “provide instruction in critical foreign languages and international fields.” Under Title VI, they are required to engage in public outreach.
According to the Stanley Kurtz article (linked above under Saudi influence) in 2004 Sandra Stotsky, who had served as senior associate commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Education was the first to break the information on the Islamic curriculum training. Specifically, she observed the outreach program of Harvard’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies, a federally subsidized Title VI NRC – to create a teacher-training seminar on Islam and the Middle East which promoted Islam as a religion and re wrote the history of Muhammad. Yet the Harvard Center was unwilling to include any kind of instruction that reflected negatively on Islam such as terrorism and the lack of women’s rights in Muslim countries.
In late 2005 Stotsky’s work was the subject of investigative reports by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and highlighted the massive Saudi influence over university outreach programs at NRCs funded under Title VI.
The US Dept. Of Education’s webpage on International Education Programs Service wrote about Title VI Programs: Building a U.S. International Education Infrastructure. Following links, I checked out some of the Universities websites which include the Middle East Studies Center which is based at the University of Ohio, the list is long, and so I only looked at one other, which was Brigham Young University in Utah.
NMELRC Goals for Arabic Studies include, Seeking to identify new and more effective ways to learn/teach ME languages; Assess national ME language needs, identify viable solutions, and work to implement these plans; Develop and disseminate materials designed for K-12 learners; Work to increase and improve advanced-level intensive summer language and study abroad programs and establish associated teacher training institutes…
Learning a middle eastern language is needed in many areas from diplomacy to journalism (as my ignorance of Arabic was proven in part 2), but the focus goes beyond languages into culture and religion, and for American schools to be indoctrinated by Islamists from places like Saudi Arabia, leading our children away from the truth of the history of Islam, while at the same time whitewashing and re writing America’s history and Christian roots.
There’s something in Islam that many Westerners aren’t aware of, something called taqiyya. Taqiyya literally means, concealing, guarding and precaution. The concept of taqiyya is the idea that Muslims are permitted to lie if it benefits Islam. For instance, Abu Hammid Ghazali, an 11th century Muslim, author of more than 70 books on Islamic sciences and Philosophy once said, “Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible…and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory.”
How are Muslims to be trusted if the theological principle of taqiyya means hiding one’s true beliefs and intentions to confuse infidels (unbelievers) and enable mujahedeen (jihadists) to operate freely among enemy nations? Yet this is exactly what has been happening.
Remember, while progressives and Muslim organizers use such terms such as civil liberties, freedoms and rights, in the same sentence they paint those who speak against and disagree with Islam as Islamophobic, hateful and bigoted. They claim to want nothing more than their Constitutional rights, but they already have their rights. Muslims vote, run for public office, have the rights to speak publically. They have mosques; they have their ideology taught in public schools, they have Sharia granted to them by allowing full coverings, halal foods, time off for daily prayer, are given prayer rooms and foot baths at many public places and at schools, in US courts, and they work in our government, and are in our military. Remember the words from Obama’s speech? “They have fought in our wars, they have served in our government, they have stood for civil rights, they have started businesses, they have taught at our universities…” And they even have influence over our media.
It’s no real surprise anymore when I read stories about Muslims being hired in our highest government levels. It’s been going on for years. If the name Keith Ellison sounds familiar, he is the first practicing Muslim US Congressman, from Minnesota. Like many who voted for Obama because of his skin tones, thinking he’d be great because he’s got darker skin, are just as likely to vote for someone just because they’re Muslim- as if that somehow proves how tolerant they are.
Millions of Muslims are natural born citizens, so it would be no stretch to see a practicing Muslim run for high office. Does this bother me? As a person who believes in the freedom to practice religion under the Constitution, no, not really, because I don’t look at people for their religious beliefs or skin color, I look at a person’s actions, their ideologies, their backgrounds and associations.
As a Christian and someone who has studied other religions and beliefs for years, and specifically Islam, I know that a Muslim is more loyal to the cause, to their god, their sect and prophet, than they are to any secular government. Muslims see Allah, Muhammad and Islam as their only authority, and unless a government swears by Islam, the government is not to be trusted, and only obeyed if it can further the cause of Islam. The practice of taqiyya. Working within the government, once they could gain a strong hold, they could find the votes to override the people and pass sharia law. It sounds hyperbolic still, even after so many years of watching it slowly happen, but consider:
In our Courts
In past elections, we saw in the state of Oklahoma- the heartland of the Nation, the people passing a state amendment to keep the state free from sharia. There was quite an outrage from people who saw this as an attack, hate speech on Islam, but think, if the courts were not already in some cases using sharia to make their rulings, and seeing the moves in other parts of government towards sharia, the people of Oklahoma and other states would not even consider such a vote. Interesting to note as well, if there was no move to promote sharia, why was there an injunction placed against the state by a highter court when a lawsuit was brought against the state by Muneer Awad, executive director of CAIR in Oklahoma; CAIR, being of course, the Islamic version of the ACLU, but with ties to terrorist organizations. Since then, more states have had anti Sharia amendments on their ballots, yet still judges have ruled in Sharia cases.
In our Government
Arif Alikhan was appointed by Obama to be Assistant Secretary for the Office of Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. During his years in Los Angeles, Alikhan was responsible for derailing the Police Department’s plan to monitor activities within the Los Angeles Muslim community, where a number of mosques and madrassas existed, and where some of the 9/11 hijackers had received support from local residents. Alikhan has referred to the terrorist organization Hezbollah as a “liberation movement.” In 2007, Alikhan was instrumental in removing a Muslim terror tracking plan in Los Angeles.
Syrian born Kareem Shora, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC)’s national executive director, was appointed to the Homeland Security Advisory Council, an outside-the-department group of national security experts that advises the Secretary. Shora is the first Arab rights advocate on the panel and also has with ties to terror backers.
A few years ago, a Muslim from Lebanon stole information from the FBI and CIA, passing it along to Hezbollah. How did this person, who wasn’t even a legal resident of the US, happen to find information at the FBI and CIA? She worked there! Lebanese-born Nada Nadim Prouty gained U.S. citizenship in 1994 through a fraudulent marriage, joined the FBI’s Washington Field Office as special agent in 1999 and joined the CIA in June, 2003.
This woman most likely got herself a job because people who think that Islam is a religion of peace didn’t want to find themselves in a discrimination lawsuit based on her religion.
Mohammed Elibiary was appointed to the Dept. of Homeland Security as an Adviser. Elibiary is a Texas-based Islamic cleric who founded the Freedom and Justice Foundation (F&J), a Muslim nonprofit group established in November 2002. F&J successfully lobbied for the passage of Texas’s Halal Food Law and for the institution of Islamic prayers (recited by Imams) in both chambers of the State Legislature. Elibiary defended Sayyid Qutb in an Op Ed piece in the Dallas News Opinion back in 2006, saying, “It’s always easier to direct our fears at one focal point then face our challenge. … Many Westerners, who’ve read Qutb’s … work, see the potential for a strong spiritual rebirth … allowing all faiths practiced in America to enrich us and motivate us to serve God better by serving our fellow man more… So I’d recommend everyone read Qutb, but read him with an eye to improving America not just to be jealous with malice in our hearts.”
So who is Sayyid Qutb? He is referred to as “the father of modern [Islamic] fundamentalism.” Along with Hasan al-Banna who founded the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928, he is one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s two great theorists.
Rashad Hussain was appointed as Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), mentioned in part one, the OIC is basically a lobbyist organization to pressure Western governments to outlaw “Islamophobia”, and was attended by Hillary Clinton who gave a speech in Turkey. Hussain was a member of the organizing committee at Yale University for an April 2004 conference held by Critical Islamic Reflections, a student group sponsored by the International Institute of Islamic Thought and the American Learning Institute for Muslims (ALIM). Among ALIM’s instructors were such prominent Muslim Brotherhood figures as Tariq Ramadan (grandson of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna), Jamal Badawi (Former Board of Directors member of the Muslim Brotherhood US and Founding incorporator of the Muslim American Society (MAS)) and Taha Al-Alwani (who once signed a fatwa (religious edict) stating explicitly that “jihad is the only way to liberate Palestine” .
Salam al-Marayati is Obama’s Adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council and is its current executive director. Al-Marayati tries to claim that Islam shares the values of the US Constitution yet he endorses sharia. He objects to Islam being identified with terrorism and denies that Wahabism poses any dangers. He even equated jihad (holy war) with Patrick Henry’s ‘Give me liberty or give me death” speech and terrorists to the fighters of the American Revolution, calling them “American freedom fighters. He has called Hezbollah’s attacks during the 1990s against Israel as ‘legitimate resistance’ and said that Israel ought to have been on the suspect list after 9/11.
Eboo Patel appointed to the Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, has ties to Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Rashid Khalidi, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Patel is a regular contributor to the Washington Post, National Public Radio, and CNN and has blogged for Huff Po, USA Today and others. He’s served on the Council on Foreign Relations’ religious advisory committee, the Aga Khan Foundation’s national committee, and the Duke University Islamic Studies Center’s advisory board and has spoken at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), which was mentioned in part one of this series.
Mohamed Magid Obama’s Sharia Czar from the Islamic Society of North America is Sudanese born and studied Islam under African Sunni scholars, one of whom was his father, the Grand Mufti of Sudan (the highest official of religious law in a Sunni or Ibadi Muslim country) In 1987 Magid immigrated to the United States, where he attended college and taught classes on the Koran at Howard University in Washington, DC. In 1997 Magid became imam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) in Virginia and became affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), eventually becoming president in September 2010. He continues to head both ISNA and ADAMS and he is considered to be a moderate Muslim with many in the media calling him “America’s Imam.”
Feb. 20th as I write this, it’s been reported that Obama has appointed Hamas adviser Robert O. Malley the senior director at the National Security Council (NSC). Malley was Obama’s foreign policy adviser in 2007, and was fired from his campaign team in 2008 because of his ties to Hamas, the PLO and other jihadist, anti-Israel groups. Either Obama has a short memory, or he believes most Americans do.
In our Media
Global Warming darling of the left, Al Gore sold his failed Current TV to Al Jazeera, which was launched in 1996 and headquartered in Doha, Qatar. It’s funded by the Qatari government, more specifically, the former Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani (He has since passed his leadership on to his son). Al Jazeera has received criticism for its critical coverage of U.S. and Israel policies. Not so ironic that Al Gore, like a typical progressive hypocrite, says one thing and does something different, is how many people pointed out that he sold it to an Oil Empire as Qatar is one of the world’s largest exporters of oil, and is the largest exporter of liquefied natural gas.
FOX News which is owned by News Corp also has its second largest shareholder who happens to be Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. This is the same who is also one of the biggest contributors to Cordoba House Initiative, which was founded and chaired by Feisal Abdul Rauf– the Imam who has been fighting to have the 9/11 mosque built at ground Zero in NYC.
In Our Military
I have two words. Nidal Hassan. In In November 2009, Hasan, a Muslim US Army Major, shot and murdered 13 and wounded 32 others at Ft. Hood during a shooting rampage while shouting “Allahu akbar”
Also in 2012, the FBI and Department of Defense was investigating over 100 cases of Islamic extremists in the military, calling the cases “insider threats.” They included not just active and reserve military personnel but also individuals who had access to military facilities such as contractors and close family members with dependent ID cards.
Last month, Craig Benedict Baxam, a former Army soldier and convert to Islam, was sentenced to seven years in prison due to his al-Qaeda/jihadi activities. Also last month, Mozaffar Khazaee, an Iranian-American working for the Defense Department, was arrested for sending secret documents to America’s enemy, Iran.
Our Air Force it seems is now paying a Muslim Brotherhood front group to advertise in their magazine looking for chaplains. According to the Clarion Project the Air Force admitted that it paid nearly $5,000 for advertisements in the magazine of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in their March and April issues. The ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial that was also labeled a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. The Air Force said it would continue to consider paying ISNA for ads.
Last October, I wrote about Obama’s Military. During the past 5 years we have seen the our Military gutted, transformed and Christian traditions which used to be strong among all branches have been marginalized and erased bit by bit, and Muslims have been entering the military in increasing numbers, and as this happens, the number of complaints by Muslims have increased. I also wrote about Obama’s ‘leadership’ as commander in chief, and how the ROE’s and other actions he’s taken have severely demoralized our troops during a time of war, and proved to be deadly to many, especially Navy SEAL Team 6 and other Special Operations Forces. Obama has been bending over backwards with Islamic countries, meddling in their Arab Spring, which has caused our troops and Special Forces to be deployed at an alarming rate and in more countries than ever during previous administrations.
I called that piece The Art of War or Submission, because by Obama’s tactics, we are not allowing our military to fight, but he is submitting to Sunni Islam, even to the point where we are paying nations such as Afghanistan while our troops are there- this is a form of jizya, a tax paid by infidels to be allowed to remain in Muslim lands. He has ordered our military to train Sunni terrorists in Syria, while arming Sunni terrorists, during a time while our military is still fighting the same Sunni groups in Afghanistan.
Now recently it was reported that the Pentagon has relaxed military uniform rules to allow Islamic beards, turbans and hijabs among Muslim service members.
And now, that we’ve been arming and training jihadists, the FBI has become alarmed because at least 50 Americans are carrying out wartime attacks alongside Islamic militants in Syria, and they are worried what will happen when they return to the US and pose a threat here. FBI counter-terrorism officials said that American jihadis who survive the battlefield in Syria are unknown and could return to America without even being detected.
WorldNetDaily reported that “Americans, along with fighters from European countries, seek to topple the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with many joining the ranks of al-Nusra, Al-Qaida and its affiliates, along with other Islamic militant groups, want to set up Islamic caliphates that encompass not only Syria but also Lebanon and Iraq.”
Earlier this month, I reported that the rebel terrorists have been also flooding back into Iraq, into the same places our Marines fought hard and many gave their lives fighting in places like Fallujah and Ramadi, places which are again over run with Al Qaida and others.
People assume what the media tells them. That the fight over there is a lost cause, and that according to Obama and others, the only groups who are dangerous are those such as Al Qaida, which not so long ago, he claimed were on the run. Yes, right back to where our Military was kept from eradicating them the first time due to politics on both sides. People may not realize or because it’s been kept under wraps from the mainstream media and political talking heads that others are just as dangerous, groups like the Muslim Brotherhood who have committed terrorist acts against the US before.
The Brotherhood is the parent of Hamas and al-Qaida and the source of most of the jihadist ideology and related terror throughout the world today. After 9/11, FBI agents discovered the founding archives of its U.S. operations during a raid of a terrorist suspect’s home in Virginia. The papers revealed that the Brotherhood, which was set up in America with millions in Saudi cash, has a plan to “destroy” America and other Western nations “from within,” and is using its agents and front groups in the U.S. to carry out their goal. Virtually every major Muslim group in America is a front for the Brotherhood, and they’ve raised millions of dollars for Hamas and al-Qaida from inside America.
As Americans we can be civil and friendly to people of other nationalities, races, religions. We’ve proven that in so many acts of generosity throughout times of disasters and ethnic cleansing during wars around the world. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have the right- no, the duty, to be vigilant here at home. We have seen what terrorism does close up and personal. Our Marines saw it in Beirut in the 70’s, our Military saw it in Saudi Arabia at Kobe Towers, and in Yemen when the USS Cole was bombed. We saw it here in New York at the World Trade Center Bombing, where the Brotherhood is still trying, and may succeed in freeing the Blind Sheik. We saw it on a beautiful September morning in 2001, and 11 years later in Benghazi Libya, which left 4 heroic Americans dead and scores wounded. Obama and Hillary blamed it on a movie, and then apologized to the Muslims for it.
There are devout Muslims in every branch of government, from local cities, counties and states all over America. To know what a Muslim thinks about society, one must ask two important questions. What do they really believe Islam teaches, and do they believe that what Islam teaches is really true? If Muslims believe in the Koran and believe it’s true, and then they believe the law, sharia is necessary to live in any society and will work towards the goal of changing any secular or Judeo/Christian society into an Islamic one as they have time and again throughout history.
Christians should be asked the same 2 questions. While Bible believing Christians know Christ is our Lord and Savior, we can live under any government rule and still do as our Lord requires, that is to love others, love our enemies and preach the Gospel. Christians have been doing these things for two thousand years, under the most free governments, and under the most oppressive governments, many of them Islamic- and never have Bible believing Christians believed our duty is to over throw any of them.
We are Americans. We have a duty to protect our country from harm, especially when our troops have been fighting and dying to protect us.
