How important is it for our presidential nominee to comprehend the threat of Islam to America? It’s more important than you know. Most Americans would put the threat of terror attacks in America as one of their top concerns. However, there are two other threats, from the same source, that Americans would be even more concerned about, if they were aware of them.
Unfortunately, our frontrunner, Mr. Trump, though he realizes there is tremendous “hatred” coming from Islam, proposes to remedy that by banning all Muslims from entry, “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”
In fact, very few of our representatives know “what’s going on” with Islam, and only one candidate has surrounded himself with the experts who know exactly what’s going on. That candidate is Ted Cruz. The truth is, it’s not all of Islam we must fear, these experts tell us, it is those who are shariah-compliant, because devout Muslims have the duty, dictated by Mohammad, to spread shariah throughout the world, and elevate its tenets above any system of laws—including our Constitution, and especially its First Amendment. And if they have to kill to do it, they will.
The first of the “two other threats” is that of the Muslim Brotherhood—declared a terrorist organization in: Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Russia and Great Britain. Bills were introduced to do the same in America, by Sen. Ted Cruz (R., TX) in the Senate and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R., FL.) in the House, last year. But no action yet.
The Muslim Brotherhood infiltrates our government.
Though it does resort to terror at times, the greatest threat of the MB to America is not terror; it is their long-term project to infiltrate our government. In their own words:
The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”
Nice. In short, they plan to infiltrate America and destroy it from within, with the cooperation of its own citizens.
In November, 2001 a 14-page document entitled “the Project” was seized in Switzerland during an investigation requested by our government. It was found at the residence of Yousef Nada, the Muslim Brotherhood director of the Al-Taqwa bank, which reportedly had been helping fund al Qaeda.
“The Project” was, in the words of Patrick Poole—an authority on the Muslim Brotherhood—a “flexible, multi-phased, long-term approach to the ‘cultural invasion’ of the West.”
Poole reports that tactics used to accomplish this invasion include:
- Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant;
- Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with Sharia law;
- Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions.
Part 3 of “the Project” is well underway, according to a comprehensive article titled “History of the Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of the U.S. Government,” penned by Clare M. Lopez, a strategic policy and intelligence expert and a vice president at the Center for Security Policy and the Clarion Fund. It is a must-read, to understand this dire threat to America being played out under our very noses.
The Article states that the Brotherhood has established literally thousands of front groups in the United States. She describes a dangerous pattern of Muslim Brotherhood–related groups that have wormed their way into an advisory relationship with our government and intelligence community.
The purpose of these mainstream Islamic groups is identical to that of terrorist groups—the eventual domination of America and the rest of the world by Islam and Sharia.
That domination proceeds politically with the painstaking insertion of Brotherhood connections into positions where they can impact public opinion and U.S. government policy—a process going on for decades. And that process has not been limited to Democrats. Ms. Lopez writes:
“One of the most successful Brotherhood placement and influence operations discovered to date involved [Hamas supporter] Abdurahman Alamoudi, who penetrated the upper echelons of both Democratic and Republican presidential administrations.…
Frank Gaffney, in a 2003 article, “A Troubling Influence,” tells in shocking detail how this same individual forged a link with conservative icon Grover Norquist, who in turn “was able to gain extraordinarily high-level access for a number of troubling individuals and groups” to the George W. Bush White House.
Where the GWB Administration was deceived, the Obama Administration has thrown open its doors to welcome Muslim Brotherhood figures.
Readin’, writin’ and… Islam being taught in our schools
We should not be surprised to find that the first goal of “the Project” has been progressing like a cancer also. In spite of the 1962 SCOTUS decision banning prayer in the schools, in which the High Court opined:
“One of the greatest dangers to the freedom of the individual to worship in his own way lay in the Government’s placing its official stamp of approval upon one particular kind of prayer or one particular form of religious services.” This decision has been vigorously enforced.
What could be more dangerous than if the state promotes a “particular form” of religion, one that is in reality a totalitarian political system that enforces submission by chopping off heads?
In spite of that SCOTUS decision, it’s increasingly common to read reports of public schools in America attempting to indoctrinate students with the tenets of that very religion—Islam. This has become so frequent that it seems evident there is some kind of central plan.
On February 14, 2016 the Clarion Project reported:
“School officials in Rochester, New York are getting flak from angry parents and teachers for holding an event in solidarity with World Hijab Day. The event, held at the school and during school hours, encouraged the high school girls to wear the Islamic headscarf for the day. Boys were given carnations to wear in solidarity.
“Unsuspecting students put on the 150 headscarves that were brought by teachers before the first bell rang. They were encouraged to participate in the “cultural event” by the school’s principal Sheela Webster, who insisted the headscarf had nothing to do with religion…
“The perspective of being able to learn what a hijab is, why some women choose to wear it and why some women don’t choose to wear it … is well within protocol of experiential learning,” said Webster.
Learning “what happens to women in certain Muslim countries and societies who have no choice whether or not to wear it – was not part of the program,” said Clarion. Judith A. Klinghoffer, PhD tells us:
“Not only was a 16-year-old girl living in Canada murdered by her father (and/or brother) for not wearing it but there are places where it is mandatory, a Saudi human rights activist reminds us:
“‘In Saudi Arabia (the birth place of Islam and home to its holy shrines) if a woman does not wear Hijab, she incurs humiliation, interrogation, stigmatization and sometimes lashing and prison.’” —Ali H. Alyami, Ph.D., Executive Director, The Center for Democracy and Human Rights in Saudi Arabia
Iran has similar penalties; women who defy Hijab law also face violence, such as acid attacks.
Perhaps Sheela Webster, the Rochester school principal, would like to live in such a country and try “choosing not to wear the hijab.”
The website Akdart.com provides a long list of such incidents. Among them are these:
Fox’s Todd Starnes reported that “Maury County, Tennessee is in the heart of the Bible Belt….Seventh graders at Spring Hill Middle School spent three weeks covering Islam in a Social Studies class …” As part of their study, the children “were instructed to write the ‘Shahada’ – “There is no God but Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”
It happens this is the conversion prayer one says when becoming a Muslim. In addition, the children were also taught the Five Pillars of Islam. Here’s more, from Akdart:
Mother rips Islam school worksheet: ‘My son will not be a part of t…. “A California mother made it very clear her son would not be describing the Five Pillars of Islam or listening to an Islamic call to prayer.”
Islam and 9/11 Not Connected, 12-Year-Olds Taught in America “Parents in Illinois are outraged.”
U.S. Islamic Schools Teaching Homegrown Hate “The Washington Post … revealed that one such school outside Washington, D.C., uses textbooks teaching 11th graders that ‘the Day of Judgment can’t come until Jesus Christ returns …, breaks the cross and converts everyone to Islam, and until Muslims start attacking Jews.’”
“A storm of controversy erupted when the Ithaca, NY, chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace brought Palestinian activist Bassem Tamimi to a third grade class.”
Ted Cruz appoints experts on Islam to his national security team
The news recently came that Ted Cruz has appointed Frank Gaffney and Andrew McCarthy to his national security team.
Frank Gaffney is an expert on national security, focusing on Islam and the Middle East. He serves, with Clare Lopez, (who was quoted above) on the executive staff of the Center for Security Policy, which has worked for years to enhance America’s awareness of the threat of Shariah and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Andrew McCarthy is the former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney in New York, best known for prosecuting the Blind Sheik and eleven other jihadis. Since then, he has become one of the few quintessential authorities on the Global Jihad Movement. He has written two New York Times bestsellers – Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad (2008) and The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America (2010). His latest book is Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy.
If we want to survive as a republic, we must have a candidate who is aware of and comprehends those threats to America. Ted Cruz’s inclusion of Frank Gaffney and Andrew McCarthy in his national security team is proof positive that he is aware of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into our government and of the insinuation of shariah into every area of American society, particularly our schools, and intends to deal with those hazards.
Perhaps for some, “talking tough” is enough. But for me, knowledge of our worst enemy is of paramount importance.
This is the difference between knowing the enemy and saying you’ll ban all Muslims “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”
