What Law Shall Govern Us?????


Dear Elaine,

The Constitution—or Islamic sharia law?

Here's what Omar Ahmad, founder of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) believes:

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur'an should be the highest authority in America."

"American Muslim leader urges faithful to spread word," San Ramon Valley (CA) Herald, July 4, 1998.
Here's what Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR's Communications Director, believes:

"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future…"

Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 4, 1993
No wonder CAIR is fighting a desperate, and so far losing, battle against the co-authors of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Trying to Islamize America.

Paul Sperry, co-author of Muslim Mafia, is one of the featured speakers at our upcoming National Conference and Legislative Briefing, June 27 - 29 in Washington, DC.

Sperry is an investigative journalist and compelling speaker who has also written Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington. You don't want to miss the insights Sperry has on how Islamists are infiltrating our society with the ultimate objective of subjecting us to shariah law.

To get more information about the June conference, or to register, please click here.

And here's a bonus. If you register at the "Patriot" registration level by April 30th, we'll add to your registration benefits an invitation-only, private breakfast with Brigitte Gabriel on June 28th.

So don't delay!

By the way, it's not just CAIR leaders calling for the imposition of Islamic law in America. Here's what Muzammil Siddiqi, former President of ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and a former leader of America's MSA (Muslim Students Association), wrote in 1996:



"It is true that Islam stands for the sovereignty of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and Allah's rules are not limited to the acts of worship, they also include social, economic and political matters...

We must not forget that Allah's rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction."

Pakistan Link, October 18, 1996

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE AND ACTION ALERT!!

ACT! for America Adds
The Secure Visas Act of 2010
to Its List of
“High Priority Legislative Proposals”

We want to stop future “Underwear Bombers”
from flying into the U.S.

By Lisa Piraneo, Director of Government Relations


Dear Elaine,

After 9/11, and in response to the fact that several of the 9/11 terrorists had obtained U.S. visas, Congress created the Visa Security Program (VSP) to increase the security of the visa process at U.S. embassies and consulates.

Today, Visa Security Units (VSU) are operating in several foreign cities, such as Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Islamabad, Pakistan. At these posts, 100 percent of visa applicants receive additional screening.

Unfortunately, the Obama administration does not appear to see the importance of increased visa screening—even though the “Underwear Bomber” had a U.S. visa. Incredibly, there is no visa security presence in high risk locations such as London, Yemen, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, or Nigeria.

How does all of this affect U.S. security? At posts without a Visa Security Unit less than 2% out of 5.8 million applications receive additional screening. That’s a lot of potential terrorists missed!

Representative Lamar Smith (TX-21) and Senator John Cornyn (TX) recently introduced legislation to improve the security of our nation’s visa issuing process. The Secure Visas Act of 2010 (H.R. 4758 in the House and S. 2944 in the Senate) mandates not only that the Department of Homeland Security maintain U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Visa Security Units (VSU) at the 14 consular posts that already have them, but that such units are created at the 16 other posts that have been designated by ICE as “highest risk.”

ACT! for America has added both of these important proposals to our list of “High Priority” legislation—legislative initiatives that we feel will help protect our nation and its citizens against the many threats of radical Islam.

We hope you will become familiar with the Secure Visas Act of 2010 CLICK HERE, as well as the other legislative proposals on the list, and do your part to protect our nation by taking the action noted below. Forming and maintaining relationships with your elected officials, and their staff, is critical to winning the fight against radical Islam and to protecting our nation for our children and grandchildren.

This battle cannot be won without the voice and action of our grassroots citizen action network.


THE FOLLOWING ACTION IS NEEDED FROM YOU, OUR ACT! FOR AMERICA GRASSROOTS ADVOCATE!

The U.S. Congress is in spring/Easter recess for the next two weeks (March 29th through April 12th). That means they are back at home in their districts…close to you, their constituents!

Please take a moment today to schedule a brief meeting with your elected official (Click Here) in his/her district office. You can attend by yourself or with other members from your local Chapter.

INTRODUCE yourself as a member of ACT! for America and make your elected officials aware of the Secure Visas Act of 2010, as well as the other legislative proposals that are on the ACT! for America High Priority List Click Here.

ASK your elected officials to support these common sense proposals by signing on to the legislation as a CO-SPONSOR. If they have already done so, be sure to thank them! They’ll remember that you did!

For tips on making the most of your face-to-face meeting, as well as tips on letters and phone calls to your elected officials, Click Here.

Finally, we love FEEDBACK! Feel free to let us know how your meeting went, so our Director of Government Relations can follow up when your elected officials return back to Washington, DC. Send all feedback to: info@actforamerica.org.


REMEMBER, YOUR VOICE COUNTS!

IF EACH OF US DOES JUST A LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN
ACCOMPLISH A LOT!

Appease the Enemy, Beat Up the Friend


Dear Elaine,

According to news reports over the past ten days, President Obama is said to be quite upset with Israel because of Israel’s latest announcement of new housing settlements.

Apparently, Obama believes Hamas is serious about negotiating a peace agreement with Israel, and that the main thing standing in the way is Israel’s refusal to heed Hamas’ demand that it halt all new settlements.

Even if Israel did so, would Hamas then recognize Israel’s right to exist—which it has refused to do? President Obama would do better to demand that Hamas—a terrorist organization—formally recognize Israel’s right to exist, than beat up on our ally Israel for building housing.

The story below (highlights added) reveals how willing Obama is to humiliate an ally like Israel while appeasing our enemies. Just one more example of the kind of poor judgment that continues to erode American confidence that we will win the war on Islamic terrorism, as revealed in a recent Rasmussen poll.




Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'




(AP Photo/Cliff Owen)

The President was said to have walked out of the meeting, saying to Mr Netanyahu: 'Let me know if there is anything new'

Giles Whittell, Washington, and James Hider, Jerusalem

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article7076431.ece


For a head of government to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of. Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation.

After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisers and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman, who spoke to the Prime Minister, said.

“It was awful,” the congressman said. One Israeli newspaper called the meeting “a hazing in stages”, poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House telephone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea”.

Left to talk among themselves Mr Netanyahu and his aides retreated to the Roosevelt Room. He spent a further half-hour with Mr Obama and extended his stay for a day of emergency talks to try to restart peace negotiations. However, he left last night with no official statement from either side. He returned to Israel yesterday isolated after what Israeli media have called a White House ambush for which he is largely to blame.

Sources said that Mr Netanyahu failed to impress Mr Obama with a flow chart purporting to show that he was not responsible for the timing of announcements of new settlement projects in east Jerusalem. Mr Obama was said to be livid when such an announcement derailed the visit to Israel by Joe Biden, the Vice-President, this month and his anger towards Israel does not appear to have cooled.

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, cast doubt on minor details in Israeli accounts of the meeting but did not deny claims that it amounted to a dressing down for the Prime Minister, whose refusal to freeze settlements is seen in Washington as the main barrier to resuming peace talks.

The Likud leader has to try to square the rigorous demands of the Obama Administration with his nationalist, ultra-Orthodox coalition partners, who want him to stand up to Washington even though Israel needs US backing in confronting the threat of a nuclear Iran.

“The Prime Minister leaves America disgraced, isolated and altogether weaker than when he came,” the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz said.

In their meeting Mr Obama set out expectations that Israel was to satisfy if it wanted to end the crisis, Israeli sources said. These included an extension of the freeze on Jewish settlement growth beyond the ten-month deadline next September, an end to building projects in east Jerusalem and a withdrawal of Israeli forces to positions held before the second intifada in September 2000.

Newspaper reports recounted how Mr Netanyahu looked “excessively concerned and upset” when he pulled out a flow chart to show Mr Obama how Jerusalem planning permission worked and how he could not have known that the announcement that hundreds more homes were to be built would be made when Mr Biden arrived in Jerusalem.

Mr Obama then suggested that Mr Netanyahu and his staff stay at the White House to consider his proposals so that if he changed his mind he could inform the President right away. “I’m still around,” the daily newspaper Yediot Aharonot quoted Mr Obama as saying. “Let me know if there is anything new.”

With the atmosphere so soured by the end of the evening, the Israelis decided that they could not trust the telephone line they had been lent for their consultations. Mr Netanyahu and Ehud Barak, his Defence Minister, went to the Israeli Embassy to ensure that the Americans were not listening in.

The meeting came barely a day after Mr Obama’s health reform victory. Israel had calculated that he would be too tied up with domestic issues to focus seriously on the Middle East.

“Is the Gitmo Bar Pro-Islamist?”
Prosecutor of 1993 World Trade Center Bombers
to Speak at ACT! for America’s National Conference
and Legislative Briefing

Dear Elaine,

Andrew McCarthy, the lead prosecutor in the successful prosecution of the perpetrators of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, WILL BE ONE OF THE FEATURED SPEAKERS AT THE ACT! FOR AMERICA NATIONAL CONFERENCE AND LEGISLATIVE BRIEFING, JUNE 27 – 29.

Last year Mr. McCarthy came out strongly against the use of civilian, criminal trials for foreign terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. In the commentary below (highlights added), he addresses questions about Islam, Islamism, and the lawyers Attorney General Eric Holder has appointed to the Justice Department who have defended Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainees.

Mr. McCarthy is a compelling speaker who will articulate his opposition to civilian trials for terrorists at our national conference. You don’t want to miss this timely presentation! To find out more details about the conference or to register online, simply click here.

Tomorrow we will announce two more speakers we have confirmed for the conference. Stay tuned!

Is the Gitmo Bar Pro-Islamist? [Andy McCarthy]

…Now, to the more important question posed in the last paragraph of Jonah's post. Let's put DOJ's ten (and counting) Gitmo lawyers to the side and just talk about the volunteer Gitmo bar in general. I believe many of the attorneys who volunteered their services to al Qaeda were, in fact, pro-Qaeda or, at the very least, pro-Islamist. Not all of them, but many of them. The assistance many of them provided went disturbingly beyond any conventional notion of "legal representation." (And let's not forget that what Lynne Stewart called her "legal representation" of the Blind Sheikh was later found by a jury to be material support to terrorism.) I expect we'll be hearing much more about this in the coming days.

Islamism is a much broader and more mainstream (in Islam) ideology than suggested by the surprisingly ill-informed comments Charles Krauthammer made about a week ago (see Dr. K's commentary here; Mark Steyn's reaction, with which I agree, is here.) Jihadist terrorists are a subset of the Islamists, but many Islamists disagree with the terrorists' means — they are mostly on the same page as far as ends are concerned.

Personally, I don't think there is much difference, if any, between Islam and Islamism. In that assessment, I'm not much different from Turkey's Islamist prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who claims it is "very ugly" for Westerners to draw these distinctions between Muslims as "moderate" or "Islamist" — “It is offensive and an insult to our religion," he says, because "there is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam, and that’s it."

Islamists are Muslims who would like to see sharia (Islamic law) installed. That is the necessary precondition to Islamicizing a society. It is the purpose of jihad. The terrorists are willing to force sharia's installation by violent jihad; other Islamists have varying views about the usefulness of violence, but they also want sharia, and their jihadist methods include tactics other than violence. I reluctantly use the term "Islamist" rather than "Islam" because I believe there are hundreds of millions of Muslims (somewhere between a third to a half of the world's 1.4 billion Muslims) who do not want to live under sharia, and who want religion to be a private matter, separated from public life. It is baffling to me why these people are Muslims since, as I understand Islam, (a) sharia is a basic element, and (b) Islam rejects the separation of mosque and state. But I'm not a Muslim, so that is not for me to say. I think we have to encourage the non-sharia Muslims and give them space to try to reform their religion, so I believe it's worth labeling the sharia seekers "Islamists" in order to sort them out. But I admit being very conflicted about it because I also concede that the Islamists have the more coherent (and scary) construction of Islam. We wouldn't be encouraging reform if we really thought Islam was fine as is.

In any event, Islamist ideology is multi-faceted. You can be pro-Islamist, and even pro-Qaeda, without signing on to the savage Qaeda methods. And the relevant question with respect to progressive lawyers is not so much whether they are pro-Qaeda as it is whether, as between Islamists and the U.S. as it exists, they have more sympathy for the Islamists. That's a fair question, but a very uncomfortable one to ask. Indeed, as Jonah broaches it, he softens it to whether the insinuation that the lawyers are pro-Qaeda is "counter-productive." That's an interesting question but a very different one from whether the insinuation is true.

In a column a few days ago, I addressed the insinuation this way:

“Al-Qaeda Seven” reminds me of another legal shorthand expression: “mob lawyer.” It’s a common expression — everyone uses it. I’d wager that a number of the DOJ’s Gitmo lawyers have either used it or been in conversations where it rolled effortlessly, and without objection, off the tongues of other prosecutors. “Mob lawyers” are lawyers who regularly represent members and associates of the mafia. It’s such a commonplace that even the mob lawyers call themselves “mob lawyers.” It’s a handle; it doesn’t mean the people who use the term don’t see the moral difference between mobsters who commit heinous crimes and the lawyers who defend them. Same with the “al-Qaeda Seven.”

Much of the commentary on this point, including from some people who usually know better, has been specious. The normally sensible Paul Mirengoff, for example, huffs, “It is entirely inappropriate to suggest that these lawyers share the values of terrorists or to dub the seven DOJ lawyers ‘The al-Qaeda Seven.’” The values of the terrorists? Which values?

Jihadists believe it is proper to massacre innocent people in order to compel the installation of sharia as a pathway to Islamicizing society. No one for a moment believes, or has suggested, that al-Qaeda’s American lawyers share that view. But jihadist terrorists, and Islamist ideology in general, also hold that the United States is the root of all evil in the world, that it is the beating heart of capitalist exploitation of society’s have-nots, and that it needs fundamental, transformative change.

This, as I argue in a book to be published this spring, is why Islam and the Left collaborate so seamlessly. They don’t agree on all the ends and means. In fact, Islamists don’t agree among themselves about means. But before they can impose their utopias, Islamists and the Left have a common enemy they need to take down: the American constitutional tradition of a society based on individual liberty, in which government is our servant, not our master. It is perfectly obvious that many progressive lawyers are drawn to the jihadist cause because of common views about the need to condemn American policies and radically alter the United States.

That doesn’t make any lawyer unfit to serve. It does, however, show us the fault line in the defining debate of our lifetime, the debate about what type of society we shall have. And that political context makes everyone’s record fair game. If lawyers choose to volunteer their services to the enemy in wartime, they are on the wrong side of that fault line, and no one should feel reluctant to say so.

Muslims in “Disbelief” Over Pushback
in the [color:1b68=#000]Netherlands


What is unbelievable is that no one is asking
why the Dutch are pushing back!


Dear Elaine,

Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders’ Party for Freedom won local elections in a surprise vote two weeks ago (see story below).

This comes on the heels of the Swiss referendum banning minarets on mosques, which passed with 58% of the vote.

Predictably, Muslims and politically correct government officials and commentators are reacting with disbelief and warnings of a new wave of “hate.”

Here’s the question people should be asking.

Why are so many people, in two countries noted for their tolerance, pluralism, and commitment to multiculturalism, pushing back with their votes?

Clearly, increasing numbers of Europeans have reached a point where they have lost patience with the Islamization of their countries.

Clearly, Islamic militancy, expressions of supremacy, and an unwillingness by most Muslims to assimilate have pushed more and more Europeans to the breaking point. In spite of threats and criticisms by Muslim leaders, government leaders, academics, and the media, these Europeans are making their concerns known with their votes.

For years Europeans have been tolerant. Their reward has been the exploitation of their tolerance by the intolerance of radical Islam.

There is a lesson here for America and Canada. Just last week, two men were assaulted by an Islamist at a Muslim Day event in Tallahassee, Florida. To see the short video, click here.

Dutch far-right breakthrough met with Muslim disbelief

By Mariette le Roux (AFP) – Mar 4, 2010

ALMERE, Netherlands — Muslims in a Dutch city where the party of anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders won local elections reacted with shock and anger Thursday, fearing his victory would fan animosity.

"I am afraid that it will lead to more hatred," said 20-year-old student Sakina Buyatui, a Dutch-born resident of Almere, a city of nearly 190,000 people near Amsterdam where a third of the population is of immigrant origin.

In a show of strength ahead of June general elections, Wilders' Party for Freedom (PVV) came first with 21.6 percent of the vote in Almere in Wednesday's poll.

"This is bad for Almere," said Buyatui, wearing an Islamic headscarf at the central station, where people of Turkish, Moroccan and Suriname descent, called "allochtonen" in Dutch, rub shoulders seamlessly with indigenous compatriots.

"It is terrible," agreed 35-year-old computer sciences student Kadriye Kacar, born in the Netherlands like her parents and grandparents, who were of Turkish descent.

"People are looking at us in a new way today as if they are thinking: 'We won and you are leaving'.

"I don't wear a headscarf normally," she added, "but I have decided to start doing so now out of protest. Other people in my community are planning to do the same; we will protest until Wilders is gone."

The far-right swing was a hot topic in Almere, where women in headscarves and long, traditional gowns huddled in small groups on the main shopping street and Wilders' name could be heard spat out in disgust.

Wilders campaigns for a ban on headscarves for public servants, a halt to immigration from Muslim countries and a moratorium on the erection of mosques in his bid to "stop the Islamisation of the Netherlands".

Henny Kreeft, leader of the Dutch Muslim Party, described Wilders' victory as "very, very sad". The party also contested Almere but got no seats.

Wilders' success "is based on a fear behind which there is no truth", Kreeft told AFP.

"Mr Wilders has been spewing a whole lot of nonsense about Islamisation and security: the more people heard it I suppose the more they thought it was true."

The PVV has nine of 150 seats in the Dutch parliament, and five of the country's 25 European parliament seats.

Some polls suggest the PVV is now the most popular party in the Netherlands, traditionally seen as a bastion of tolerance.

Wilders shock to the Dutch political system

After his party's success, Wilders told Muslims in Almere they had nothing to fear "as long as they obey the law".

"He is creating hatred, he is going too far," a woman with a headscarf told AFP, declining to identify herself.

"This could become a serious problem," added 48-year-old Muslim businessman Walli Hyrat. "It is very difficult to take the headscarf away from Muslim people."

But one 19-year-old waiter, who would not give his name "because it may create problems at work", said he voted for Wilders.

"Too much attention and resources are spent on Muslims," he said.

"I have to work here to earn money for my studies," he added. "I don't get any help because the leftist parties in government reserve all that for the poor, most of whom are Muslims."

Another Wilders supporter, a 62-year-old pensioner, said his concern was for security.

"We are afraid of walking alone in places where groups of young allochtonen hang around looking for trouble," he said. "Wilders will give us commandos to patrol the city and will ensure that repeat offenders are put out of the Netherlands."

But a 61-year-old woman who immigrated to the Netherlands from Turkey in 1976 said she feared Wilders' rise would drive a wedge between hitherto peaceful neighbours.

"Things are going to change," she said. "This is a really bad development."

Politically Correct Media Bias on Display
What you DIDN’T See in the Article Below

On Monday, ACT! for America sent an Action Alert to our Virginia members, urging them to contact the House of Delegates to protest the decision to have imam Johari Abdul-Malik give the opening prayer at the House session yesterday.

Below is The Washington Post story, a prime example of politically correct media bias. While there are 11 lines devoted to allegations and concerns about Abdul-Malik, there are 29 lines providing various expressions of defense of him. Hardly fair and balanced.

And not one line that actually quotes what he has said that causes concern.

Such as when Abdul-Malik compared the conviction and life sentence of an Islamic terrorist to the civil rights struggle:


“Our whole community is under siege. They don't see this as a case of criminality. They see it as a civil rights case. As a frontal attack on their community….The feeling I get here on a daily basis must be what it was like to be a member of Martin Luther King Jr.’s church following the case of Rosa Parks. People always ask, 'What is the latest from the courthouse?'”
Or when he defended a Muslim cleric who got a life sentence for counseling others to wage war against the U.S. with these words:

“There is a view many Muslims have when they come to America that you could not be arrested for something you say….but now they have discovered they are not free to speak their minds.”
Apparently, The Washington Post couldn’t cut a few of the 29 lines defending Abdul-Malik to actually tell its readers what he has said.

And at the end, notice how the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) once again, right on cue, engages in the propaganda technique of name calling.

Have you signed our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR? There’s still time.




Boycott urged for Muslim imam's prayer in Virginia House

Abdul-Malik says critics are wrong about him.
(Jahi Chikwendiu - Washington Post)
By Anita Kumar and William Wan

Washington Post Staff Writers
Thursday, March 11, 2010


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/03/10/AR2010031003909.html?hpid=newswell

RICHMOND -- Hundreds of people are urging legislators to boycott the House of Delegates' floor session on Thursday, when a Falls Church imam whom they accuse of condoning violence and defending terrorism is set to deliver the opening prayer.

The imam, Johari Abdul-Malik, and many other leaders in the Muslim and interfaith communities say the accusations are false.

Two of the Sept. 11 hijackers briefly worshiped at his mosque, the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, and one of its former imams, Anwar al-Aulaqi, has been linked to accused terrorists and subsequently denounced by the mosque, one of the largest in the United States.

But Abdul-Malik was not affiliated with the mosque in 2001, when the Sept. 11 attacks occurred. In recent years, he has made statements following the arrest of Muslims on terrorism charges, arguing for due process, civil rights and fair sentencing.

"To try to cast me as someone who's a terrorist and closed-minded -- they picked the wrong guy," he said.

Soon after Sept. 11, Abdul-Malik was featured in paid ads produced by a group of national Muslim organizations, which denounced terrorism and the attacks. He has condemned terrorism and Osama bin Laden on "The O'Reilly Factor" and other television programs.

Still, letters and calls have poured into legislative offices since Friday, when a handful of concerned delegates let community activists know that Abdul-Malik was coming to Richmond.

"He's an apologist for people who commit criminal acts," said James Lafferty, chairman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force. The group, along with the Traditional Values Coalition and Act for America, will hold a rally outside the state Capitol on Thursday morning.

Abdul-Malik said he was warned recently that similar negative comments were made about another imam -- Mohamed Magid, head of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society mosque in Sterling -- when he gave the prayer at the General Assembly two years ago.

"All they're doing is showing that racism still lives in the Old Dominion," he said. "But at the same time, there's a new Dominion. That's what we're going to show people."

Del. Adam Ebbin (D-Alexandria) said he has no regrets about asking Abdul-Malik to give the prayer in the House. "The imam is a peace-loving man," he said.

Many of the letters have asked House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) to revoke Abdul-Malik's invitation, but Howell's chief of staff, G. Paul Nardo, said no such action is planned. The House's practice is generally to allow delegates to invite religious leaders of differing faiths, he said.

Ebbin said he is concerned that Abdul-Malik's presence will cause a disturbance, but added: "I haven't seen any substantiated reason to ask him not to come. . . . I hope it would be a peaceful occasion where people could reflect."

Allies in the interfaith community have responded in support of the imam. When Abdul-Malik prays in Richmond, the Rev. Clark Lobenstine, executive director of InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington, will be sitting next to him on the assembly floor.

As one of the most active and outspoken imams in the D.C. area, especially in the interfaith community, Abdul-Malik has given prayers at Howard University, where he was the college's first Muslim chaplain; at the U.S. Capitol for Muslim staff members; and for past D.C. mayors.

Ebbin sent a letter to his 99 colleagues Thursday defending his choice of Abdul-Malik and saying that any concerns about him were driven by "false rumors propagated on the Internet."

Del. C. Todd Gilbert (R-Shenandoah), who opposed a member of Dar al-Hijrah's board being appointed by former governor Timothy M. Kaine to the state immigration commission, said he has concerns about Ebbin's choice.

"I don't think anyone has any problem with this being a Muslim prayer," he said. "This particular imam and this particular mosque have been a flashpoint for controversy because of the teachings they promote and the connections they have had."

Abdul-Malik would be the first imam to deliver the opening prayer in the House or Senate during this year's legislative session, although others have done so in the past, according to the clerks' offices.

"We're seeing this over and over. Whenever any Muslim seeks to engage in the political process or even have input in that arena, they come under attack," said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Muslim civil rights group Council on American-Islamic Relations. "There's a whole cottage industry of Muslim bashers that's formed to do this stuff."

Custodian of U.S. Mosques Advocates
Killing Americans


Two weeks ago we formally announced our 2010 National Conference and Legislative Briefing in Washington, DC, June 27 – June 29. In just 14 days, 2/3 of the available Patriot Premium registrations have been booked, and people are already registering for the Patriot registration as well.

To find out more details simply click here to view the conference flyer, or log on here to register.

Last year we had a dozen Members of Congress brief our attendees on issues ranging from terrorism to stealth jihad. This year we’ve added much, much more to the program.

All registrants will be able to participate in both the full-day conference on Monday and the legislative briefing on Tuesday. All registrations include the Welcome reception on Sunday, June 27th, and the Gala Banquet on Monday night, June 28th.

So even if you aren’t able to take advantage of the Patriot Premium registration, this conference will be chock-full of the kind of exciting events, powerful speakers, and timely information you have come to expect from ACT! for America.

The WorldNetDaily story below demonstrates why our 2010 National Conference and Legislative Briefing is so important and so timely.

Shouldn’t America be concerned that the organization that holds title to hundreds of mosques in America publicly advocates the killing of anyone who opposes the forced spreading of Islam????

Shouldn’t America be concerned that this organization believes Islam has a divine right to take control of any political system in order to establish Islam as the political system on earth?




HOMELAND INSECURITY

Custodian of U.S. mosques promotes slaying Americans

NAIT: 'It is the duty of Islam to fight him until he is killed'




Posted: March 07, 2010
10:30 pm Eastern

©️ 2010 WorldNetDaily


http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=127262


The custodian of most of the major mosques in America acts as a front for the radical Muslim Brotherhood in America, and publishes and distributes Islamic literature that exhorts Muslims to "kill" any Westerners who get in the way of spreading Islam, WND has learned.

"No political system or material power should put hindrances in the way of preaching Islam. If someone does this, then it is the duty of Islam to fight him until either he is killed or until he declares his submission," asserts an Islamic publication distributed by the North American IslamicTrust.

NAIT holds title to more than 300 mosques in America – including the large Islamic center outside Washington where the Fort Hood terrorist and some of the 9/11 hijackers worshipped.

Get "Muslim Mafia," the book that exposed CAIR from the inside out, autographed, from WND's Superstore!


NAIT also owns and controls the mosque in Orange County, Calif., that converted al-Qaida spokesman Adam Gadahn to Islam.

Gadahn in a video released Sunday exhorted Muslims serving in the U.S. military to follow in the footsteps of accused Fort Hood terrorist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. He also called for attacks on mass transportation, along with assassinations or kidnappings of key figures in the government, industry and media.

The Justice Department recently blacklisted NAIT as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to funnel millions of dollars to Palestinian terrorists.

NAIT Trustee Gaddoor Saidi was individually listed as an unindicted co-conspirator, as well, in the Holy Land Foundation case -- the largest terror finance trial in U.S. history, which ended in guilty verdicts on all 108 counts.

In addition, the government identified NAIT as a front for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood in America. Hamas, which was designated a terrorist organization in 1995, has murdered 17 Americans and injured hundreds of other U.S. citizens.

Chicago-based NAIT also handles the finances for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Students Association, and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups, which, shockingly, make up the Muslim establishment in America, according to the new book, "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America."

The Muslim groups have been vehemently protesting the FBI's use of undercover informants in mosques and its recent seizure of several mosques in America. Last year, a mosque leader in Detroit was fatally wounded in a shootout with FBI agents who sought his arrest on felony charges.

Through its subsidiary American Trust Publications, also headquartered in Chicago,
NAIT publishes and distributes the pro-offensive-jihad book "Milestones," by the late Muslim Brotherhood leader Sayyid Qutb of Egypt, Osama bin Laden's spiritual father.

"Jihad in Islam is simply a name for striving to make this system of life dominant in the world," the NAIT tome asserts. "Wherever an Islamic community exists which is a concrete example of the Divinely ordained system of life, it has a God-given right to step forward and take control of the political authority so that it may establish the Divine system on earth."

"Milestones" preaches that Shariah law should be implemented "by force" if Western societies resist the barbaric Islamic code.

"Bringing about the enforcement of the Divine Law and the abolition of man-made laws cannot be achieved only through preaching," it says. "When obstacles and practical difficulties are put in its way, it has no recourse but to remove them by force."

"Islam has the right to take the initiative," the book claims. "It has the right to destroy all obstacles in the form of institutions and traditions. It is the duty of Islam to annihilate all such systems."

Chillingly, Qutb's strategy dovetails with one outlined in
a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood manifesto recently declassified by the Justice Department.

It lists NAIT among Brotherhood, or "Ikhwan," front groups participating in a seditious conspiracy of "eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within" through a "grand jihad," with the ultimate goal of making Islam "victorious over all religions."

The secret manifesto was found in a terrorist suspect's home in Northern Virginia and entered as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

According to "Muslim Mafia," NAIT was founded in 1973 with massive funding from the Saudis. It was formed as an investment bank for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America, acquiring title to more than 300 mosques and Islamic schools in the U.S.

Current NAIT Chairman Muzammil Siddiqi appears in secret Brotherhood documents as a high-ranking member of its shura council in America, according to documents cited in "Muslim Mafia."

NAIT did not return phone calls seeking comment.

MORE VICTORIES: This Would Not Have
Happened Two Years Ago
This is PROGRESS!!!
View an Important Message
from Brigitte Gabriel

Dear Elaine,

In the few years after Brigitte Gabriel founded American Congress for Truth, and prior to her launching ACT! for America, she was frequently asked, “What can we do? Can we successfully fight the threat of radical Islam?”

Few would have believed then what happened this past week. Three different local political party conventions here in America passed resolutions acknowledging the Constitution as the law of the land—and opposing any effort to implement shariah Islamic law in this country.

These efforts could well lead, this year, to some state political party platforms containing language opposing any implementation of shariah law in America.

THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED TWO YEARS AGO!!

So what’s different? Today we have a thriving, growing ACT! for America. These political party convention efforts were spearheaded by ACT! for America chapter leaders and members.

Brigitte’s vision launched ACT! for America—but it wouldn’t have been possible to get where we are without you.

Please click here for an important, 4 minute video message from Brigitte.

And to add your support to our ACT! IMPACT! 2010 campaign, please click here.

This is Why Islamists Name-Call

The WorldNetDaily story below captures how a Muslim leader in North Carolina “imploded” during a radio interview.

Jibril Hough, a vocal critic of U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick, has followed the Islamist playbook by using standard propaganda techniques to attack Rep. Myrick.

Hough’s implosion on the radio reveals why Islamists engage in such “attack the messenger” tactics. When challenged, they cannot deny the facts about radical Islam and its many tentacles into America. So they attack, hoping to divert attention from the truth they’re desperately trying to hide.

The story below is most revealing. If you have time to listen to the interview, that’s even more revealing.



HOMELAND INSECURITY

Muslim leader implodes on air


Key critic of Rep. Sue Myrick exposed as radical by radio jock



Posted: February 28, 2010
3:30 am Eastern

©️ 2010 WorldNetDaily



Jibril Hough
A Muslim leader who has tried to portray the founder of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus in Washington as an extremist "hatemonger" was himself exposed as an extremist on a popular radio program.

For years, Jibril Hough has represented himself and his North Carolina mosque as "moderate," while putting Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., on the defensive as an anti-Muslim fanatic who "shoots from the hip" when sounding the alarm about homegrown Islamic terrorism. Myrick, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, co-founded the Capitol Hill caucus after 9/11 to educate Americans about the growing threat from jihadists.

But during an in-studio interview Friday with Charlotte radio personality Keith Larson of WBT-AM, Hough was confronted with documents revealing his mosque – the Islamic Center of Charlotte – is owned and controlled by an organization connected to a plot to funnel millions of dollars to Islamic terrorists.

The North American Islamic Trust holds the deed to ICC, an 800-member Sunni mosque located on five acres at 1700 Progress Lane in Charlotte. The U.S. Justice Department recently blacklisted its owner NAIT as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror finance case in U.S. history. The government also identified NAIT as a front for Hamas and the radical Muslim Brotherhood in America.

Get "Muslim Mafia," the book that exposed CAIR from the inside out, autographed, from WND's Superstore!

Saudi-funded NAIT owns the title to hundreds of radical mosques across the country, including the notorious 9/11 mosque in Northern Virginia – Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center (deed) – which helped some of the hijackers obtain housing and IDs and also counseled the Fort Hood terrorist and several other known terrorists.

Hough, ICC's spokesman, at first expressed surprise when confronted with the information, claiming he'd never before seen the deed and did not know NAIT was named in a federal terror probe.

"I'm not aware of this information here," he said, reviewing the documents.

Pressed by Larson, the ICC spokesman later admitted NAIT is the "parent" of his mosque, but quickly added that he was not a member of the mosque when NAIT took control in 1992.

"I was not involved in the decision to allow NAIT to be the (title) holder," he said.

Asked if he were a member of NAIT, Hough paused before answering: "Not necessarily."

Larson said it looked as if his mosque was acting as a "front" for an organization tied to terrorism, and wondered why Hough was not more concerned.

"It's concerning, yes," Hough conceded.

"To everybody else it looks not just concerning but absolutely damning," the host responded. "Do you understand that?"

"What else can I say?" Hough said.

"Will you disassociate yourself" from NAIT? Larson asked.

"I told you I was going to look into it and was going to take it to my board," Hough snapped.

As reported in the bestselling book, "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," current NAIT trustee Gaddoor Saidi also shows up on the Justice Department's list of unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation scheme to fund Hamas terrorists. The Holy Land case ended in 2008 with guilty verdicts on all 108 counts.

A Muslim convert, Hough [pronounced: Huff] denied being affiliated with Hamas, but then proceeded to defend the terrorist group, claiming "they haven't attacked Americans."

In fact, Hamas has murdered 17 Americans and injured hundreds of other U.S. citizens in suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks in Israel. The U.S government designated Hamas a terrorist organization in 1995.

Hough also said he had a problem with the definition of "terrorism," and suggested that the U.S. and Israel are committing the only real terrorism by retaliating against Muslim terrorists and extremists.

"What is 'terrorism?'" Hough said. "Terrorism against Iraqis, Palestinians, Afghanis?"

Hough also denied affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egypt-based worldwide jihadist movement which gave rise to Hamas and al-Qaida.

However, current NAIT Chairman Muzammil Siddiqi appears in secret Brotherhood documents as a high-ranking member of its shura council in America, according to documents cited in "Muslim Mafia."

"Within the organizational structure of NAIT, there have been numerous groups and individuals identified as being part of a covert network of revolutionaries," the FBI warned in a previously classified internal memo about the Muslim Brotherhood.

"This faction of Muslims have [sic] declared war on the United States, Israel, and any other country they deem as an enemy of Islam," the memo continues, as quoted in "Muslim Mafia." "The common bond between these various organizations is both religious and political, with the underlying common goal being to further the holy war (Islamic jihad)."

Justice recently declassified [url=http://www.wnd.com/files/NAIT-MB Manifesto.pdf]a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood manifesto[/url] that lists ICC's owner NAIT among Brotherhood front groups participating in a seditious conspiracy of "eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within" through a "grand jihad," with the ultimate goal of making Islam "victorious over all religions."

The secret manifesto was found in a terrorist suspect's home in Northern Virginia and entered as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

According to "Muslim Mafia," NAIT was founded in 1973 with massive funding from the Saudis. It was formed as an investment vehicle for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America, acquiring title to more than 300 mosques and Islamic schools in the U.S.

ICC also runs an Islamic school called the Charlotte Islamic Academy.

Hough's radical ties are not limited to ICC and NAIT. He once headed a Jew-bashing organization called the Islamic Political Party of America.

IPPA issued a press release in 2003, when Hough was identified as the chairman of the group's national board, that suggests the Jews were behind 9/11, a rumor that first appeared in the Arab press and was summarily discredited.

"But the biased Western media would not cover this story, yet they also neglected to report that 4,000 Jews employed at the World Trade Center were absent at (the) WTC on 9/11," Hough's organization wrote in the press release. "Nor did they report on the thousands who saw WTC Building Seven fall without a plane hitting it."

The same press release also defended convicted terrorist Sami al-Arian, among other convicted terrorists, such as cop-killer Jamil al-Amin.

As of 2008, Hough was identified as president of the IPPA of North Carolina.

The revealing radio interview with Hough took place the day after Myrick agreed to meet with local Muslims in a local town hall meeting to hear their complaints. Hough demanded she meet at his mosque, but the venue was changed to a government building to accommodate Shiite and Sufi Muslims as well.

Myrick said she was open to meeting at a mosque at a future date.

In the first part of the WBT interview, Hough took the opportunity to criticize Myrick, who planned to join him in the interview but had to fly back to Washington for a hearing and could not participate.

"Sometimes when she shoots from the hip, it looks like she's painting with a broad brush," Hough told Larson.

"People with an [anti-Muslim] agenda are whispering in her ear," he claimed.

"I doubt some of the information she's been fed is correct," Hough continued. "It's clouded her judgment."

As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Myrick receives highly classified briefings from the FBI, CIA and National Counter Terrorism Center.

Hough named bestselling author and JihadWatch.com director Robert Spencer as one of the people he believes is "whispering" in Myrick's ear.

"Spencer clearly has an agenda against Muslims," Hough insisted.

Taking Offense

Have you ever wondered why 80 year old ladies are frisked at airports while the “Underwear Bomber” was able to get through security?

If you answered that political correctness has a lot to do with it, you win the prize! “Random” searches are done to avoid any pretense of “profiling”—which is done to avoid giving “offense” to Muslims.

But no matter how sensitive our security officials try to be in order to avoid “offending” Muslims, no matter what tactics they propose using to keep us safe, some Muslims still take offense.

No one ever bothers to ask if all the law-abiding people who fly on airplanes are ever offended by the inconveniences and indignities imposed on them.

The short commentary below is very instructive.





Islamists Play Shell Games with Security

by David J. Rusin • Feb 23, 2010 at 9:16 am
http://www.islamist-watch.org/blog/2010/02/islamists-play-shell-games-with-security


Despite the countless terror attacks perpetrated by their co-religionists, some Muslims still have the chutzpah to demand that security protocols conform to supposed Islamic sensitivities. But like a typical shell game, every time we think we know which procedures they grudgingly will tolerate, we discover that we have been hoodwinked yet again.

Responding to
security measures implemented after the attempt to bomb a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day, CAIR characteristically charged that "the new guidelines, under which anyone traveling from or through 13 Muslim-majority nations will be required to go through enhanced screening techniques before boarding flights, … amount to religious and ethnic profiling." CAIR's proposed alternative: "First look at behavior, not at faith or skin color. Then spend what it takes to obtain more bomb-sniffing dogs, to install more sophisticated bomb-detection equipment, and to train security personnel in identifying the behavior of real terror suspects."

All are fine ideas. But in reality, Islamists oppose each of them:

Scrutinizing behavior. Consider the "
flying imams" imbroglio, where six Muslims who seemed to exhibit "the behavior of real terror suspects" were removed from a plane before takeoff in 2006. Passengers and crew members became alarmed when the men spoke loudly in Arabic, refused to sit in assigned seats, and requested unneeded seatbelt extenders. How did CAIR respond? By alleging religious discrimination and suing everyone in sight — with some success. True, the imams were fingered originally by alert citizens rather than dedicated security officers. But should we believe that CAIR's reaction would have been different otherwise?

Bomb-sniffing dogs. Given that some Muslims see dogs as unclean, using them for security purposes often provokes Islamist criticism. Britain has experienced a
litany of canine controversies, while a prominent Canadian Muslim recently voiced concerns about dogs patrolling Vancouver. The issue of police dogs also arose when a Detroit-based radical imam was killed in an October FBI raid. According to the Detroit News, the attorney representing his widow "said it was needlessly confrontational to send a dog after Abdullah because Muslims view dogs as unclean and anyone attacked by a dog could react violently"; an FBI canine was shot dead by the imam. How long until bomb-sniffing dogs in U.S. airports face objections?

Bomb-detection equipment.
Body scanners are about as sophisticated as it gets, but now we know that these, too, run afoul of Islamist sensibilities. "The Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) emphasizes that a general and public use of such scanners is against the teachings of Islam, natural law, and all religions and cultures that stand for decency and modesty," the group explains in a fatwa issued on February 9. CAIR, which had championed "sophisticated bomb-detection equipment" just a month earlier, backed the ruling.

The shell game continues, with the Fiqh Council offering yet another idea: "FCNA appreciates the alternate provision of pat-down search" and advises Muslims to avail themselves of this option over the body scanners. After all, no Muslims balk at being touched,
right?

[size=25]Even USA Today Joins the Chorus

British Intelligence Reports Increase in
Terror Suspects Trying to Fly to the U.S.

Click Here To Help Us Reach Our Goal of “1010 for 2010”


Dear Elaine,

The week before last, Richard Cohen, writing in the Washington Post, criticized the Obama administration’s handling of national security and terrorism.

Then last week USA Today chimed in (see the op-ed below).

We take no delight in criticism for criticism’s sake being leveled at President Obama and his administration. Indeed, we would much prefer that the Obama administration be doing the right things to keep our nation safe than to watch him be criticized from those all the way from the political right to the political left.

But when even those who are left of center launch the kind of pointed attacks we are seeing, there should be no doubt something is seriously wrong, the administration is failing us, and our safety and security are threatened!

Please note this excerpt from the op-ed below:

“CIA Director Leon Panetta and other top officials agreed last week that an attack by al-Qaeda is likely in the next three to six months.”
To underscore this, British intelligence has confirmed that the number of potential terror suspects abroad trying to board planes to the United States has substantially increased within the past several weeks.

We are now a little more than halfway through our 30 day ACT! IMPACT! 2010 campaign, and we are 45% of the way to our goal of getting 1010 new monthly contributing Patriot Partners and Contributing Members who make one-time gifts.

If you haven’t yet responded, we need to hear from you! Simply click here to make a monthly commitment or a one-time gift. Our online form is VeriSign secured and easy to use.

If you prefer to make a one-time gift with a check, please click here to print out a reply form to mail with your check.

2010 is going to be a pivotal year in the ongoing effort to roll back the rising tide of radical Islam. If we are to successfully launch programs like the 2010 Congressional Scorecard, we need your help and support!

So please click here and help us continue pushing toward our goal!

National security team fails to inspire confidence

Officials’ handling of Christmas Day attack looks like amateur hour.


Ever since the botched Christmas Day plot to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner, the Obama administration's national security officials have struggled to assure the public that they know exactly what they're doing.

So far, they're achieving the opposite, and they're needlessly adding some jitters in the process:

-- CIA Director Leon Panetta and other top officials agreed last week that an attack by al-Qaeda is likely in
the next three to six months. The warning is bound to frighten the public, with no obvious benefit beyond the ability to say "I told you so."

-- Top administration officials revealed last week that bombing suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was again cooperating with authorities. Great. But the news pretty much negates earlier claims that no intelligence was lost when Abdulmutallab was prematurely read his rights.

-- In Senate testimony, National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair had
a "Duh!" moment as he hit his forehead and acknowledged that authorities fumbled the initial questioning of Abdulmutallab by failing to call in the high-value interrogation group, which was created to question terrorism suspects. Refreshingly candid, yes, but not a statement that inspires confidence. Especially when the same day, at another Senate hearing, FBI Director Robert Mueller testified that the high-value unit was still in its "formation stages" and that "there was no time" to get it to Detroit.

All of this follows the string of blunders that allowed Abdulmutallab to carry explosives onto a U.S.- bound plane in the first place. The chaos that followed his arrest now looks just as bad.

According to news accounts, Abdulmutallab was questioned by, and cooperated with, the FBI for a grand total of 50 minutes before going into surgery. When he emerged, he became combative, asked for a lawyer and was read his rights. (At the time, remember, no one knew whether other bombers had been dispatched simultaneously.)

A decision of such magnitude should have involved the top brass in intelligence and law enforcement. But Blair, Mueller and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano have all testified they were not consulted. Mueller said the decision to read the suspect his Miranda rights was made by agents in the field.

In television appearances on Sunday, John Brennan, the White House deputy national security adviser, chafed at the criticism the intelligence community is getting. He said it was demoralizing and urged cheerleading instead. But cheerleading doesn't get problems fixed, and it's undeniable that there are plenty to address.

Some problems, such as the post-arrest misjudgments, are of the Obama administration's making. Others, such as the intelligence failures preceding the incident, are institutional. There is, however, a common denominator: slipshod coordination leading to bad judgment.

If Panetta is right about another attack, there's not much time for national security officials to get their act together.

The Call to Jihad:

“Radicalizing” Muslim Youth in America


Dear Elaine,

We now frequently read how people like the Ft. Hood jihadist and the “Underwear Bomber” have been “radicalized.” But have you noticed that very few officials in government or members of the “establishment” media ask what is “radicalizing” these people?

This past Tuesday, our friends at Front Page Magazine conducted an interview with Dave Gaubatz (see below, highlights added), co-author of the explosive blockbuster book Muslim Mafia.

Here’s one excerpt from the interview:


The message is clear: “Islam is a religion of Jihad, in peace and in war. Jihad is one of the noblest principles of Islam.” The manual where this message is found is titled, “A Guide for The Young Muslim.” The manual further describes Jihad as being physical fighting against their enemies and oppressors. It is admired to be a “martyr.” This book was found in northern VA, and a CAIR pamphlet was beside it.
Every homegrown jihadist arrested last year either acknowledged or had access to materials calling for jihad.

A primary goal of ACT! for America is, over time, to persuade enough policy makers and elected officials, at all levels, that our national security strategy must include action that addresses the ideological “call to jihad.”

Another topic Gaubatz addresses in the interview is the lawsuit CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) has filed against him. He says that CAIR executives have said things that “amount as a threat” against him!

Did you know we have nearly 40,000 signatures on our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR? If you haven’t yet signed, please click here and help push us over 40,000!

Islam’s Child Martyrs in America
Posted By Jamie Glazov On February 9, 2010 @ 12:13 am In FrontPage

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Dave Gaubatz, the first U.S. civilian (1811) Federal Agent deployed to Iraq in 2003. He is the owner of DG Counter-terrorism Publishing [2]. He is currently conducting a 50 State Counter-terrorism Research Tour (CTRT). He is the co-author (with Paul Sperry) of the new book, Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America. [3] He can be contacted at davegaubatz@gmail.com [4] and his site is MuslimMafiaInternational.com [5].

[6]

FP: Dave Gaubatz, welcome to Frontpage Interview.

I would like to talk to you today about jihadi torture videos that have come into your possession and also about Islam’s child martyrs in America.

But first, give us some updates on your new research in terms of counter-terrorism.

Gaubatz: Thank you Jamie.

I just returned from DC, MD, PA, WV, VA, and NJ conducting various counter-terrorism (CT) research. I would like to say that while various realms of our government are doing an outstanding job in protecting our families from future Islamic based terrorist attacks, we have several serious problems. One of them is that our President doesn’t even officially have any type of plans on a “War on Terrorism.” Sadly, we are being overtaken by these groups. I meet Americans and other concerned citizens from Canada and the UK, and they know America and their countries are slowly/patiently being overtaken from within, while their leaders are ignoring the national threats.

FP: Give us some specifics on what you have recently discovered.

Gaubatz: I am beginning to see more and more violent material published and distributed to young Muslim children advocating killing Jews and Christians, and how to conduct treason/sedition inside America and to ultimately take our country down as we know it.

CAIR (Muslim Brotherhood) strongly informs its followers to not assist our law enforcement agencies and to not conduct slander and backbiting against Islamic leaders. Within Sharia law there are severe penalties for undermining the efforts of the ‘Islamic Ummah’ (Nation) and their specific target of a worldwide Ummah under Sharia law.

I have been provided hundreds of DVD’s originally videotaped by Islamic terrorist groups while they conducted torture and killings of people (even Muslims) who have helped their enemies (Israel, America, UK, Canada, etc…) to further (in their opinion) oppress the Muslim Ummah.

FP: Talk a bit more about these videos.

Gaubatz: This part of my work is very depressing because I have to review the most extreme animal actions by terrorist groups on innocent people, to include young children. I reviewed hundreds of videos the American people and law enforcement do not get to see, and our government does not want the American people to see. Why? I will explain later. I witnessed innocent people being slaughtered like animals. The Islamic terrorist groups had children cut and behead a fellow Muslim. In addition several young Muslim men had to stand in line and wait their turn to have their tongues removed by an al-Qaeda member with a razor blade. Several men had to put their arm on a board and a terrorist used a baseball to break his arm. Then he had to put his other arm out for the same treatment.

These are the type of people CAIR supports and even our government supports. The IRS grants CAIR and other such organizations non-profit organizational status and tax free benefits, while you and I are forced to pay taxes to support the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood. Something doesn’t seem right and politicians who protect these groups will lose in the end. The American people will not allow our children to suffer at the hands of terrorist groups.

FP: Share with us how Muslim children are being taught to kill “oppressors” of Islam, even inside America.

Gaubatz: For many years I have tracked the materials coming into America from Saudi Arabia and Pakistan specifically. Based on my research, these two countries are responsible for distributing jihadi materials, not just to adults, but to Muslim youth right here in America.

The message is clear: “Islam is a religion of Jihad, in peace and in war. Jihad is one of the noblest principles of Islam.” The manual where this message is found is titled, “A Guide for The Young Muslim.” The manual further describes Jihad as being physical fighting against their enemies and oppressors. It is admired to be a “martyr.” This book was found in northern VA, and a CAIR pamphlet was beside it.

“Martyrdom means transfusion of blood into a society, especially a society from anemia. It is the martyr who infuses fresh blood into the veins of the society.” The manual in which this teaching was contained was found in VA (again alongside a CAIR brochure). It is titled “The Martyr” and was originally printed in Houston, TX.

I would like to explain how the above statement is applicable here in America and reaches Muslim children. When Maj. Hasan murdered the innocent people at Fort Hood, he was trying to revitalize the Muslim people to not lose hope, to continue pursuing the agenda of al-Qaeda and others, and most importantly to let them know there are “martyrs” working inside America who are ready to die for Islam. He is 100% correct. Sleeper cells are alive and well not only in America, but Canada, the UK, and most countries worldwide.

Video: “This is ACT! for America”

by Guy Rodgers, Executive Director

www.actforamerica.org

Dear Elaine,

Last year, after assembling footage of ACT! for America events, chapter leader activities, and our lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill, we created a video entitled “This is ACT! for America.”

Just this past week we posted this exciting video on YouTube. We hope that when you click here to view it you will be as proud as we are of all that has happened in a short time and everything our organization is accomplishing.

None of our successes, our organizational growth, or our increasing influence, would be possible without the faithful financial support of members like you.

We are now 14 days into our 30 day “ACT! IMPACT! 2010” campaign. As the thermometer at the right shows, we are 31% of our way toward our goal of 1,010 new monthly contributing Patriot Partners and Contributing Members, those who make one-time contributions.

If you are one of those who have responded, we thank you for helping us raise the funds we need for our first three projects of this year:



  • The Congressional Scorecard
  • “Effective Contact” online grassroots lobbying software and service
  • The full-page ad calling for a government investigation of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) in Washington, DC’s “Roll Call” newspaper.
If we are going to reach our 30 day goal we need to get 50% of the way there in the next few days.

If you haven’t yet responded, will you do so today by clicking here and becoming either a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or making a one-time gift?

(If you would like to make a one-time gift, but prefer to mail a check, please click here to print out a reply form to mail with your check.)

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In that case, a video is worth 10,000 words. The video “This is ACT! for America” tells the story that only video can tell.

And every person who has made a contribution, started a chapter, attended a chapter meeting, signed a petition, forwarded our emails, or told someone about us, is part of that story that is on its way to making history.

YOU are part of that story.

There are more chapters of the story yet to be written. Please click here and respond today so those chapters will be even more successful than the chapters that have been written so far.

Yours for America,


Guy Rodgers

P.S. Please feel free to forward this email to others so they, too, will have the opportunity to see this video.

The Fallout Continues

Dear Elaine,

The fallout continues after the Ft. Hood jihadist massacre and the near-miss terrorist act of the “Underwear Bomber.”





  • Our friend Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim, former Naval officer, and the president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, penned a commentary yesterday in which he correctly criticizes the Pentagon’s 84 page report that purported to assess the reasons for the Ft. Hood jihadist attack.

    If you would like to read Mr. Jasser’s insightful analysis please click here.

  • On Sunday, a Dallas Morning News article contained this chilling sentence:

    “But Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan wasn't the only one working on a Texas Army base the day of the shooting who had links to radical Islamists.”

    The writer was referring to Louay Safi, a high-ranking official in ISNA, the Islamic Society of North America. The article notes that, in spite of Safi’s questionable public statements and connections with militant Muslims, he has been retained by the military to teach our soldiers about Islam!
  • In a February 5th article on our friend Steven Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) website, we read that Omar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “Underwear Bomber,” spent two weeks in Houston attending a course conducted by the AlMaghrib Institute.

    According to the article, this was the third AlMaghrib course Abdulmutallab had taken.

    This article tells us a great deal about the kind of “education” Abdulmutallab was getting—right here in the United States—and sheds light on what motivated Abdulmutallab to decide to engage in jihad.

    For instance, videotapes obtained by IPT show the Houston director of AlMaghrib glorifying jihad and honoring a man who was sentenced to life in prison for soliciting jihadists to wage war against the United States.

    The article begs the question, at what point do jihadists, who train others in jihad, lose their rights to free speech in our country?

What’s Going On Here?

Dear Elaine,



  • A February 2nd CNN story reports that some Democrats in the Congress are now joining Republicans in opposing President Obama’s decision to try terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in civilian criminal courts.
  • The Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act, a high priority bill for ACT! for America, passed both the House and Senate with strong bi-partisan support.
  • Syndicated columnist Michael Barone, in an op-ed entitled “Easy on the Enemy,” wrote that, after President Obama’s outreach speeches to the Muslim world, “terrorists did not say, ‘Gosh, now that Obama is closing Guantanamo and terrorists are being given Miranda rights, I've got to change my mind and decide that the United States is a really nifty country and that freedom and democracy are good things after all.’”
  • Even Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, in the commentary posted below, made this remarkable statement: “There is almost nothing the Obama administration does regarding terrorism that makes me feel safer.” Wow.
What’s going on here?

These words and actions are more evidence of the tide turning in America. People are demanding leadership, action and answers.

We are now nine days into our 30 day “ACT! IMPACT! 2010” campaign, and we are 23% of the way to our goal of 1010 new Patriot Partners and Contributing Members to help us fund the first wave of our critical programs for this year.

Every person reading this email should be immensely encouraged by how the tide is turning. Because this means that everything we do this year will have a more powerful impact and have a greater potential for winning victories than at any time since ACT! for America was founded a little over two years ago!

That’s why now, more than ever, is the time for us to ACT!

We want to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to each of you who have already signed up to be a Patriot Partner or made a one-time gift as a Contributing Member.

Your “thank you” gift from us should be arriving at your home soon.

If you haven’t yet responded, and you can afford to do something, please click here and choose either the Patriot Partner monthly contribution option or the one-time gift Contributing Member option.

(If you’d like to mail a one-time gift, please click here to print out a reply form.)

If only 1 person in 100 getting this email responds today, we will reach our goal. Can we count on you to be that one person?

Every gift counts, no matter the size! Thank you!




Obama administration is tone-deaf to concerns about terrorism


By Richard Cohen
Tuesday, February 2, 2010


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/02/01/AR2010020102854.html

There is almost nothing the Obama administration does regarding terrorism that makes me feel safer. Whether it is guaranteeing captured terrorists that they will not be waterboarded, reciting terrorists their rights, or the legally meandering and confusing rule that some terrorists will be tried in military tribunals and some in civilian courts, what is missing is a firm recognition that what comes first is not the message sent to America's critics but the message sent to Americans themselves. When, oh when, will this administration wake up?

Bit by bit, circumstances are forcing President Obama and his aides to come to grips with reality. The
original plan to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the so-called Sept. 11 mastermind, in New York City has apparently been aborted. It finally occurred to the Justice Department that cordoning off much of Lower Manhattan and placing a security perimeter around the financial district not only would cost something like $200 million a year but also would destroy the economy of the area. A trial there would give KSM, as he is called, a second shot at devastating downtown New York.

It is amazing that no one thought this through. Published reports say that the
Justice Department informed Mayor Michael Bloomberg of its plan just about the time it was announced. This alacrity was clearly the product of some excitement down at Justice -- yet another chance to show the world that George W. Bush was gone and with him the odious attempts to treat terrorists as if they were, well, terrorists. A civilian trial! Right in the heart of Manhattan! Obama ought to ask his friend Attorney General Eric Holder what in the world he was thinking -- just as we might ask Obama why he has such faith in Holder's judgment.

In a similar example of poor judgment, an undoubtedly delighted
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was told he had something called Miranda rights and could, if he so chose, cease talking about allegedly attempting to blow up a jetliner as it approached Detroit on Christmas Day. Abdulmutallab was Mirandized after just 50 minutes of interrogation and he, having probably seen more than his share of "Law & Order" episodes, promptly shut up.

Increased Threat — Increased Opportunity
by Brigitte Gabriel


Dear Elaine,

Findings from a recent national poll (see story below, highlights added) confirm what we have been saying—Americans feel less safe and are losing confidence in the Obama administration to protect them from terrorism.

We ARE less safe. That is a fact. And that is the threat.

But with this increased threat comes a greater opportunity to combat the threat.

Because Americans are more concerned and more anxious, they are looking for answers, leadership, and action. Who will answer the call?

ACT! for America is poised to provide those answers, that leadership, and that action. For instance, while I can’t go into detail, as I write this we are working behind the scenes with Members of Congress to craft new legislation to better protect Americans from the threat of Islamic terrorism.

We have ambitious plans this year for a Congressional Scorecard, a Voter Guide, and a state-of-the-art online grassroots lobbying program to help you contact your Members of Congress more easily and effectively.

But we need YOUR HELP to step up and answer the call. No other organization in America is positioned to do what we can do this year to combat Islamic terrorism and make America safer.

Public Detects A Softness On Terrorism

By RAGHAVAN MAYUR
http://www.investors.com/NewsAndAnalysis/Article.aspx?id=518855


Americans are concerned about the Obama administration's approach to national security, with ideology a major influence on where they stand. As liberals support Obama's policies, nonliberals back tougher approaches.

These are the key findings from the latest IBD/TIPP poll of 923 Americans completed on Jan. 9. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.

Twelve percent of Americans list national security as the second-most important issue facing the country. Only the economy and jobs rank higher, with 49%.

An overarching read of the poll data is that Americans view administration policies as soft. Only liberals support them.

Security issues raised by the Christmas bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, are a case in point. Lawmakers last week questioned the wisdom of trying Abdulmutallab in civilian courts instead of a military tribunal.

It's not clear whether Abdulmutallab, a potential treasure trove of intelligence, was read his Miranda rights too early, before the intelligence agencies extracted all the intelligence from him. That becomes more relevant since Abdulmutallab told the FBI he'd been trained and armed by al-Qaida operatives in Yemen and that we could expect more bombers coming from that country.

Most Americans (61%) are against giving Miranda rights to captured terrorists; only 31% support the policy. By ideology, 74% of conservatives and 54% of moderates oppose it. But a majority of liberals 51%) support the policy.

The ideological split can also been seen on whether the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should be closed. This is a priority issue for the administration, but Americans overall continue to oppose closing Gitmo by a 2-to-1 margin. Conservatives oppose closure by 81% to 9%, and moderates by 53% to 36%. Only liberals support closing the facility, by 60% to 28%.

Another example is the prosecution of U.S. officials who ordered enhanced interrogation techniques against captured terrorists. Most Americans have consistently opposed the idea. In our latest poll 58% oppose prosecution and 32% support the action.

Conservatives oppose prosecution 68% to 23%, and moderates are 57% to 36% against. But liberals favor the action 54% to 38%.

How does Obama compare with his predecessor on national security? A year ago, nearly one-half (49%) of Americans said the policies of the Bush administration made the U.S. safer from terrorism. For the current administration, this measure dropped to 26% in July 2009, 28% in September, 29% in October and 26% this month.

Over the same time, the share of Americans who feel either "very safe" or "somewhat safe" has also declined. Four of five Americans (82%) stated they felt safe a year ago. The same metric declined to 73% in July 2009, to 69% in October and to 67% this month.

In addition to specific actions, symbolic moves, such as replacing the term "war on terror" with "overseas contingency operations" and "act of terror" with "man-caused disaster," might also be contributing to the perception of administration policies as soft.

In sum, the appeal for the administration's policies is limited to liberals who make up just 16% of the electorate. Most Americans identify themselves as conservatives (50%) or moderates (34%).

Last Tuesday's special Senate election in Massachusetts is an example of the popularity of tougher policies. Senator-elect Scott Brown came across as being tougher on terror than his opponent. He also stated he did not believe waterboarding was torture.


Mayur is president of TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, which directs the IBD/TIPP Poll that was the most accurate in the last two presidential elections.

ACT! IMPACT! 2010

by [color:e567=#000]Brigitte Gabriel


Now, more than ever, ACT! for America is poised to make a huge impact on the threat of radical Islam.

Today, with more homegrown jihadists than ever, the panty bomber reminding us that al Qaeda and bin Laden are vowing more attacks, and the foolhardy “mirandizing” of terrorists, America is clearly less safe than it was a year ago.

Americans know it and are looking for answers, action, and leadership.

With your help, ACT! for America can give them the answers they need, the leadership they deserve, and the action our country will thank us for!

That’s why today I’m launching our 30 day “1,010 for 2010” campaign to kick off our BIG PLANS for this year!

This campaign is looking for 1,010 people to either:


By clicking here and choosing either the Patriot Partner option or the Contributing Member option, you will provide us the funds we need for a successful ACT! IMPACT! 2010.

Below are highlights of just three of our projects for 2010 which you can help make happen as the spearhead of ACT! IMPACT! 2010.

2010 Congressional Scorecard

This Congressional Scorecard tells how each Member of Congress voted on key bills and amendments that affect our national security. After publishing our first Congressional Scorecard in 2008 we were flooded with emails of gratitude for this invaluable service. (To see ACT! for America’s 2008 Congressional Scorecard, click here, then scroll down and click on the links on the left).

Just think of the impact we can have this election year when hundreds of thousands of people log on to our website to find out how their elected Members of Congress voted on key bills and amendments!! You can make this happen!!

ACT! for America needs $30,000 to create and maintain this important resource. By clicking here and becoming either a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or making a one-time contribution, you will help ACT! for America make this a reality.

“Effective Contact” Grassroots web-based lobbying program

Get your voice heard! With one click of a button you can forward a pre-written email or letter to your member of Congress on an issue ACT! for America is pushing for. Send the letter or email as written, or personalize it if you choose! With one click the email or letter will be on its way!

Reach your community! With one click you can get a list of newspapers in your area and send a pre-written letter to the editor. AND…send it to any newspaper in the country!

Get people voting on our issues! You can get people registered to vote simply by clicking on a button on our website.

These are just a few of the services we will be able to provide you, our members, with the “Effective Contact” online program we are looking to purchase. With your support this can happen!

Just think how much more effective and efficient our efforts will be as we work together to win new policy victories in Congress!

ACT! for America’s cost to set up and maintain this program for 2010 is $25,000. By clicking here and becoming either a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or making a one-time contribution, you will help us make this a reality.

“One-two punch” to Congress: Full-page ad campaign in Roll Call

We want to give Congress a “one-two punch” with 40,000 or more signatures on our CAIR petition combined with a full-page ad campaign in Roll Call. Roll Call is read by virtually everybody who is anybody politically in Washington.

This ad will shine a spotlight on CAIR and its highly questionable record in a way that has never been done before on Capitol Hill.

Our Congressional allies will cheer it and those uninformed in Congress about CAIR will receive some much-needed education!

This hard-hitting campaign will cost up to $15,000. By clicking here and becoming either a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or making a one-time contribution, you will help us make this a reality.

For those of you who have followed my work since 2002, you are seeing how perseverance, tenacity, teamwork and commitment have resulted in ACT! for America becoming the largest national security grassroots movement in America.

I appeal to you today to invest in the security and future of America—and your family. We at ACT! for America must do this together—none of us can do it alone, and we can’t succeed without your financial support.

Together we rise in defense of our security, our liberty and our values!

Always devoted,


Brigitte Gabriel

Ft. Hood Jihadist Massacre Report

"Gutless and Shameful"


How bad is the cancer of political correctness in the Defense Department?

So bad that the 86 page report on the Ft. Hood jihadist massacre mentions "Islam" or any of its derivatives only once—in a footnote.

So bad that CNN commentator Jack Cafferty called it a "joke."

Unfortunately, the only ones laughing are the Islamists.

They must be looking at our military and political leadership and thanking Allah for their good fortune. It's easy to envision discussions among Islamists where they tell each other "surely Allah is with us; the infidel leaders are so blind and stupid they won't even acknowledge who is fighting them!"

Ralph Peters' column below is RIGHT ON POINT!

We believe American outrage at this suicidal level of political correctness is only going to grow. Let us resolve together to make 2010 the year that "main street America" shouted back at Washington that we've had enough!!



Hood Massacre Report Gutless and Shameful

By RALPH PETERS

January 16, 2010


http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/opedcolumnists/
hood_massacre_report_gutless_and_yaUphSPCoMs8ux4lQdtyGM


There are two basic problems with the grotesque non-report on the Islamist- terror massacre at Fort Hood (released by the Defense Department yesterday):

* It's not about what happened at Fort Hood.

* It avoids entirely the issue of why it happened.

Rarely in the course of human events has a report issued by any government agency been so cowardly and delusional. It's so inept, it doesn't even rise to cover-up level.

"Protecting the Force: Lessons From Fort Hood" never mentions Islamist terror. Its 86 mind-numbing pages treat "the alleged perpetrator," Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, as just another workplace shooter (guess they're still looking for the pickup truck with the gun rack).

The report is so politically correct that its authors don't even realize the extent of their political correctness -- they're body-and-soul creatures of the PC culture that murdered 12 soldiers and one Army civilian.

Reading the report, you get the feeling that, jeepers, things actually went pretty darned well down at Fort Hood. Commanders, first responders and everybody but the latest "American Idol" contestants come in for high praise.

The teensy bit of specific criticism is reserved for the "military medical officer supervisors" in Maj. Hasan's chain of command at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. As if the problem started and ended there.

Unquestionably, the officers who let Hasan slide, despite his well-known wackiness and hatred of America, bear plenty of blame. But this disgraceful pretense of a report never asks why they didn't stop Hasan's career in its tracks.

The answer is straightforward: Hasan's superiors feared -- correctly -- that any attempt to call attention to his radicalism or to prevent his promotion would backfire on them, destroying their careers, not his.

Hasan was a protected-species minority. Under the PC tyranny of today's armed services, no non-minority officer was going to take him on.

This is a military that imposes rules of engagement that protect our enemies and kill our own troops and that court-martials heroic SEALs to appease a terrorist. Ain't many colonels willing to hammer the Army's sole Palestinian-American psychiatrist.

Of course, there's no mention of political correctness by the panel. Instead, the report settles for blinding flashes of the obvious, such as "We believe a gap exists in providing information to the right people." Gee, really? Well, that explains everything. Money well spent!

Or "Department of Defense force protection policies are not optimized for countering internal threats." Of course not: You can't stop an internal threat you refuse to recognize.

The panel's recommendations? Wow. "Develop a risk-assessment tool for commanders." Now that's going to stop Islamist terrorists in their tracks.

The Fort Hood massacre didn't reflect an intelligence failure. The intelligence was there, in gigabytes. This was a leadership failure and an ethical failure, at every level. Nobody wanted to know what Hasan was up to. But you won't learn that from this play-pretend report.

The sole interesting finding flashes by quickly: Behind some timid wording on pages 13 and 14, a daring soul managed to insert the observation that we aren't currently able to keep violence-oriented religious extremists from becoming chaplains. (Of course, they're probably referring to those darned Baptists . . .)

To be fair, there's a separate, classified report on Maj. Hasan himself. But it's too sensitive for the American people to see. Does it even hint he was a self-appointed Islamist terrorist committing jihad? I'll bet it focuses on his "personal problems."

In the end, the report contents itself with pretending that the accountability problem was isolated within the military medical community at Walter Reed. It wasn't, and it isn't. Murderous political correctness is pervasive in our military. The medical staff at Walter Reed is just where the results began to manifest themselves in Hasan's case.

Once again, the higher-ups blame the worker bees who were victims of the policy the higher-ups inflicted on them. This report's spinelessness is itself an indictment of our military's failed moral and ethical leadership.

We agonize over civilian casualties in a war zone but rush to whitewash the slaughter of our own troops on our own soil. Conduct unbecoming.

Taqiyya and Political Islam’s Rules of War

A Definite “Must-Read” Commentary


Every so often a research document, commentary, article or video comes along that is so important and so essential to understanding what we are up against, that we use the words “must read” or “must see.”

Recently, just such a research document came across our desks, which you can download and print out by clicking here.

This MUST-READ document outlines the essentials of the perpetual warfare worldview that is inherent in the ideology of political Islam, extensively citing the Qur’an and the hadith, as well as Islamic scholars and works from the four schools of Islamic jurisprudence. Those essentials are:



  1. Islam is superior to all other religions.
  2. Islam is in a perpetual state of war with all non-Muslims.
  3. Jihad is central to the prosecution of this war.
  4. Taqiyya (dissimilitude or deceit) is not only permitted but sanctioned as a means of practicing this warfare.
  5. Subjugating and even killing non-Muslims is actually a benefit to those non-Muslims, because Islam is such a superior way of life.
  6. War between Islam and all non-Muslims will only cease when Islam reigns worldwide.
Remarkably, the writer of this commentary, Raymond Ibrahim, carefully, logically and with documentation expounds upon these essentials in fewer than ten pages!

We highly recommend that you:



  • Print out the commentary, carefully read it, and file it somewhere for easy future reference.
  • Forward it to others you know and encourage them to read it.
  • Especially forward it to anyone you know who is in the military, law enforcement, or politics.
Islamists are counting on the West remaining ignorant of the material laid out in this attached commentary. We can and will defeat the radical Islamists bent on destroying and/or subjugating us IF enough Americans come to understand the basic essentials of the ideology that is driving the Islamists.

Choosing Between “Evils”

We marvel at the difference a month makes.

Since the arrest of the “Underwear Bomber,” everywhere you turn these days you hear people saying we need to “profile” if we’re going to get serious about protecting ourselves from radical jihadists.

The Wall Street Journal column below is just one example.

CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, is on the defensive, making absurd arguments that profiling doesn’t work because as soon as we start profiling al Qaeda will recruit blond-haired, blue-eyed Swedes as suicide bombers.

The public opinion tide is indeed turning.

2010 is shaping up to be a year where events convince people that we need to make qualitative changes in how we deal with the threat of Islamist terrorism.

The fact that the Obama administration ordered extra security measures for air travelers from specified countries, which is in fact profiling, is instructive. You can be sure this is not an action President Obama wanted to take—but events and public opinion are forcing his hand.



-----------------------------


Our Incompetent Civilization

Sometimes we have to choose between evils.

• By BRET STEPHENS

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703580904574637921764041330.html

When does a civilization become incompetent? I've been mulling the question in a number of contexts over the last year, including our inability to put a stop to Somali piracy, detain a terrorist who can neither be charged nor released, think rationally about climate change, or rebuild Ground Zero in an acceptable time frame.

But the question came to me again in Brussels on Sunday as I watched my children—ages six, four, and four months—get patted down before boarding our U.S.-bound flight. The larger-than-allowed bottle of cough syrup in my carry-on, however, somehow escaped our screener's humorless attentions.

Yes, the screener in this case was Belgian, not American. Yes, terrorists come in any number of skin colors, and they aren't above strapping explosives to their own children. And yes, the Obama administration took a half-step toward sanity by ordering additional screening of passengers from 14 countries, including Yemen, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria, home of Flight 253 would-be bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

But here's a predictive certainty: Not one non-Muslim from any of these countries (or others such as Egypt or Jordan, which were oddly excluded from the list) will ever become a suicide bomber. The localized case of Sri Lanka's Tamils aside, suicide bombing is a purely Islamic phenomenon. Note that during the whole of the intifada there was not a single case of a Palestinian Christian blowing himself up, making a nonsense of the view that Israel's checkpoints and curfews and security fences were the main cause of the terror.

So as Homeland Security, TSA and the rest of the government's counterterrorism apparatus struggle to upgrade travel security in a way that doesn't involve freeze-drying passengers in their seats, it's worth noting that we have finally reached the outer bounds of a politically correct approach to airport security. To wit, the U.S. government is now going to profile Muslim passengers, albeit partially, indirectly and via the euphemism of nationality instead of religion. Insofar as actual security is concerned, it would be both more honest and effective if it dropped the remaining pretense.

The obvious rub is that profiling goes against the American grain. We shudder at the memory of previous instances of it, particularly the internment of Japanese-Americans in the 1940s. Rightly so.

But a civilization becomes incompetent not only when it fails to learn the lessons of its past, but also when it becomes crippled by them. Modern Germany, to pick an example, has learned from its Nazi past to eschew chauvinism and militarism. So far, so good. But today's Multikulti Germany, with its negative birth rate, bloated welfare state and pacifist and ecological obsessions is a dismal rejoinder to its own history. It is conceivable that within a century Germans may actually loathe themselves out of existence.

In the U.S., our civilizational incompetence takes various forms. For instance: No country in the world collects more extensive statistical data about its own population than the U.S. And no country is as conflicted about the uses to which that data may or may not be put than the U.S. So what exactly is the point of all this measuring, collating and parsing?

Our deeper incompetence stems from an inability to recognize the proper limits to our own virtues; to forget, as Aristotle cautioned, that even good things "bring harm to many people; for before now men have been undone by reason of their wealth, and others by reason of their courage."

Thus we reject profiling on the commendable grounds that human beings ought not to be treated as statistical probabilities. But at some point, the failure to profile puts innocent lives recklessly at risk. We also abhor waterboarding for the eminently decent reason that it borders on torture. But there are worse things than waterboarding—like allowing another 9/11 to unfold because we recoil at the means necessary to prevent it. Similarly, there are worse things than Guantanamo—like releasing terrorists to Yemen so they can murder and maim again (and so we can hope to take them out for good in a "clean" Predator missile strike).

Put simply, we do not acquit ourselves morally by trying to abstain from a choice of evils. We just allow the nearest evil to make the choice for us.

And so it goes. We can be proud of how deeply we mourn the losses of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. But a nation that mourns too deeply ultimately becomes incapable of conducting a war of any description, whether for honor, interest or survival. We rightly care about the environment. But our neurotic obsession with carbon betrays an inability to distinguish between pollution and the stuff of life itself. We are a country of standards and laws. Yet we are moving perilously in the direction of abolishing notions of discretion and judgment.

One of life's paradoxes is that we are as often undone by our virtues as by our vices. And so it is with civilizations, ours not least.

Frustrated? Concerned? Infuriated?

by Guy Rodgers, Executive Director


The two commentaries below will likely add to the frustration and anger you feel about how political correctness and the failure to properly identify and deal with our Islamist enemies has so much of Washington paralyzed.

Indeed, you’ll probably hit the roof when you read below that a man charged with the robbery of a restaurant in New York faces more potential prison time than Umar Abdulmutallab, the “Christmas Day bomber.”

We in ACT! for America understand how you feel. We deal with this insanity every day. Brigitte Gabriel has encountered such frustration, concern and anger among American citizens for years. And we know that, alone, as isolated voices, our ability to effect change is greatly limited.

The greatest disincentive to action is the feeling that my efforts won’t make any difference. We overcome that by banding together. This is why Brigitte founded ACT! for America—to give you and every concerned American a voice that can make a difference in this war against radical Islam.

So when you read either or both of the commentaries below, channel that frustration, concern and anger. Take action. Forward this email to friends and encourage them to sign up for our email alerts.

Or start a chapter or get involved with one.

Or sign our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Or make a contribution.

Because when you take action, you’ll be joining thousands of others who are taking action. We are now at nearly 80,000 members and growing. Every action you take will help us grow even larger.

And the bigger we get, the more effective our collective voice will become—and the harder it will be for our elected representatives to ignore us.

Polls are now showing voters are becoming increasingly concerned about national security and the threat of Islamic terrorism. They are becoming more and more distrustful of the Obama administration’s ability to keep us safe. The American “sleeping giant” is awakening—and it will be looking for leadership, answers, and action.

Now, more than ever, is the time to act.

Yours for America,


Guy Rodgers

Treating terrorism as an ordinary crime

January 5, 2010

Two men have been charged by law enforcement authorities with committing criminal acts on Christmas Day 2009. The first, Joseph T. Knox, 43, of 6092 North Main St. in Sandy Creek, N.Y., was charged with attempted first-degree felony robbery of the China One restaurant, located next door to his residence. New York State Police said Knox brandished a knife during the bungled robbery. Bail was set at $10,000, and, if convicted, Knox could face up to 25 years in prison.

The second, Nigerian national Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, of no known permanent address, was charged with attempting to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 bound for Detroit from Amsterdam. If convicted, Abdulmutallab could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

In other words, in President Obama's America, a man charged with brandishing a knife during a failed attempt to rob a local eatery could get more prison time than an aspiring suicide bomber who tried unsuccessfully to ignite explosives that would have incinerated him and nearly 300 other passengers and crew members on board Flight 253. This disparity unmasks the illogic of dealing with Islamic terrorists as if they are mere criminal defendants deserving of the same constitutional rights as common thieves.

Like Knox, Abdulmutallab was told he had a right to remain silent, and he took full advantage of it. Then, as if to turn terrorism into the moral equivalent of shoplifting, prosecutors offered Abdulmutallab a plea bargaining deal in return for his cooperation. This was done, according to White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan, so that Abdulmutallab would know "there are certain things that are on the table, and if he wants to engage with us in a productive manner, there are ways that he can do that."

If Obama is serious about "doing everything in our power" to stop terrorism, he will instead treat Abdulmutallab, along with all other terrorists attempting in the name of Islamic extremism to destroy America, as enemy combatants on a par with irregular guerrillas. Such fighters use civilian clothes to disguise their murderous intentions and are thereby not covered by the Geneva Convention for prisoners of war.

The appropriate response to such individuals is interrogation using accepted techniques for extracting militarily useful information, followed by a military tribunal to establish the facts in all cases and execution for those justly convicted. Anything less makes the protection and preservation of our nation no more important than punishing an inept restaurant robber in a small town in upstate New York.

A terrorist war Obama has denied

By Charles Krauthammer
Friday, January 1, 2010; A17

Janet Napolitano -- former Arizona governor, now overmatched secretary of homeland security -- will forever be remembered for having said of the attempt to bring down an airliner over Detroit: "The system worked." The attacker's concerned father had warned U.S. authorities about his son's jihadist tendencies. The would-be bomber paid cash and checked no luggage on a transoceanic flight. He was nonetheless allowed to fly, and would have killed 288 people in the air alone, save for a faulty detonator and quick actions by a few passengers.

Heck of a job, Brownie.

The reason the country is uneasy about the Obama administration's response to this attack is a distinct sense of not just incompetence but incomprehension. From the very beginning, President Obama has relentlessly tried to play down and deny the nature of the terrorist threat we continue to face. Napolitano renames terrorism "man-caused disasters." Obama goes abroad and pledges to cleanse America of its post-9/11 counterterrorist sins. Hence, Guantanamo will close, CIA interrogators will face a special prosecutor, and Khalid Sheik Mohammed will bask in a civilian trial in New York -- a trifecta of political correctness and image management.

And just to make sure even the dimmest understand, Obama banishes the term "war on terror." It's over -- that is, if it ever existed.

Obama may have declared the war over. Unfortunately, al-Qaeda has not. Which gives new meaning to the term "asymmetric warfare."

And produces linguistic -- and logical -- oddities that littered Obama's public pronouncements following the Christmas Day attack. In his first statement, Obama referred to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as "an isolated extremist." This is the same president who, after the Fort Hood, Tex., shooting, warned us "against jumping to conclusions" -- code for daring to associate the mass murder there with Nidal Hasan's Islamist ideology. Yet, with Abdulmutallab, Obama jumped immediately to the conclusion, against all existing evidence, that the would-be bomber acted alone.

More jarring still were Obama's references to the terrorist as a "suspect" who "allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device." You can hear the echo of FDR: "Yesterday, December 7, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy -- Japanese naval and air force suspects allegedly bombed Pearl Harbor."

Obama reassured the nation that this "suspect" had been charged. Reassurance? The president should be saying: We have captured an enemy combatant -- an illegal combatant under the laws of war: no uniform, direct attack on civilians -- and now to prevent future attacks, he is being interrogated regarding information he may have about al-Qaeda in Yemen.

Instead, Abdulmutallab is dispatched to some Detroit-area jail and immediately lawyered up. At which point -- surprise! -- he stops talking.

This absurdity renders hollow Obama's declaration that "we will not rest until we find all who were involved." Once we've given Abdulmutallab the right to remain silent, we have gratuitously forfeited our right to find out from him precisely who else was involved, namely those who trained, instructed, armed and sent him.

This is all quite mad even in Obama's terms. He sends 30,000 troops to fight terror overseas, yet if any terrorists come to attack us here, they are magically transformed from enemy into defendant.

The logic is perverse. If we find Abdulmutallab in an al-Qaeda training camp in Yemen, where he is merely preparing for a terror attack, we snuff him out with a Predator -- no judge, no jury, no qualms. But if we catch him in the United States in the very act of mass murder, he instantly acquires protection not just from execution by drone but even from interrogation.

The president said that this incident highlights "the nature of those who threaten our homeland." But the president is constantly denying the nature of those who threaten our homeland. On Tuesday, he referred five times to Abdulmutallab (and his terrorist ilk) as "extremist[s]."

A man who shoots abortion doctors is an extremist. An eco-fanatic who torches logging sites is an extremist. Abdulmutallab is not one of these. He is a jihadist. And unlike the guys who shoot abortion doctors, jihadists have cells all over the world; they blow up trains in London, nightclubs in Bali and airplanes over Detroit (if they can); and are openly pledged to war on America.

Any government can through laxity let someone slip through the cracks. But a government that refuses to admit that we are at war, indeed, refuses even to name the enemy -- jihadist is a word banished from the Obama lexicon -- turns laxity into a governing philosophy.

America Losing Confidence in Obama

Administration Fighting “War on Terror”


Dear Elaine,

Yesterday we emailed you a commentary by a Muslim reformer who questioned how the Obama administration is dealing with the threat of terrorism and radical Islam.

Little did we know that the highly-respected Rasmussen Reports public opinion firm was going to release polling numbers yesterday that reveal the American people are losing confidence in the Obama administration’s ability to protect us from this threat (see story below).

While the number of Islamist terror attacks in the U.S. in 2009 was the highest in any one year since 9/11, the Obama administration does not even acknowledge that holy war has been declared against us. President Obama will not use the terms “Islamist terrorism” or “Islamic terrorist.”

According to many pundits, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is “in over her head” and thoroughly unprepared to lead the agency tasked with protecting us against terrorism. Even the liberal Washington Post ran an editorial on Monday criticizing the Obama administration’s reaction to the attempted terrorist attack on Christmas Day.

No wonder Americans are losing faith in this administration to keep us safe from the growing threat of Islamist terrorism.

War on Terror Update
Plane Attack Spooks Public Confidence in War on Terror
Wednesday, December 30, 2009

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/mood_of_america/war_on_terror_update

Belief that the bad guys are winning the War on Terror is now at its highest level over two years, and nearly half of U.S. voters say America is not safer than it was before 9/11.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 30% of voters think the terrorists are winning the War on Terror. That’s the first time the number holding that pessimistic view has reached 30% since October 2007.

Just 18% believed the terrorists were winning the week President Obama took office in January. At that time, 55% said America and its allies were on top. Now, just 36% say the United States and its allies are winning the War on Terror. Only once since July 2007 have voters had less confidence.

Just 27% now say that the United States is safer today than it was before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. However, 47% say it is not, That latter figure marks a nine-point jump from earlier in the month and is the highest negative finding on the question since Rasmussen Reports began surveying on it in 2002. We have been tracking the question monthly since November 2006 and also measured it regularly in 2004 and 2005. Before that, it was asked on an occasional basis.

(Want a free daily e-mail update? If it's in the news, it's in our polls). Rasmussen Reports updates are also available on Twitter or Facebook.

Male voters feel more strongly than women that the terrorists are now winning. But conversely men are also more likely to believe America is safer today than it was before 9/11.

Republicans are evenly divided as to who is winning the War while a plurality of unaffiliated voters say neither side is winning. Democrats, by a 42% to 25% margin, believe the U.S. and its allies are winning. When a Republican was in the White House, Republicans were more optimistic than Democrats.

Seventy-five percent (75%) of the Political Class say the United States and its allies are winning the War on Terror. Mainstream voters are more narrowly divided on the question.

Similarly, 72% of the Political Class says the United States is safer today than before 9/11, but 54% of Mainstream voters disagree.

In a separate survey following the Christmas Day incident, 79% of voters said it is likely there will be another terrorist attack in the United States in the next year.

Forty-six percent (46%) say current airport security procedures are not strict enough.

A Muslim Reformer Questions
Obama's Approach to the Muslim World


In a number of emails we have sent out this year, we have noted the dramatic increase in jihadist arrests in America in 2009, in spite of the well-publicized efforts by President Obama to "reach out" to the Muslim world.

The attempted jihadist terror attack on Christmas Day was an exclamation point to that message.

Tawfik Hamid’s commentary below (highlights added) affirms what we contend, that the problem is radical Islam, or "Islamism" (the political ideology embedded in Islam), and not America.

To further cement the argument, Iran continues to defy America and the international community as it marches towards nuclear weaponry. Note that last week a defiant Iranian President Ahmadinejad claimed Iran is ten times stronger now than it was a year ago.

As we ring out 2009 and ring in the New Year, it is clear that few lessons from history are more incontrovertible than this one: Appeasing those driven by a supremacist ideology succeeds only in emboldening them.

Regrettably for the U.S., President Obama, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and his foreign policy team don’t appear to have learned that lesson.


-----------------------


Weakening Islamism is Vital to Improve US Image in the Muslim world
By Tawfik Hamid
www.tawfikhamid.com

In the December 1, 2009 issue of the WSJ Europe, Fouad Ajami - in an Op-Ed entitled "The Arabs Have Stopped Applauding Obama" - argued that President Obama's diplomatic approach to win the hearts and minds of the Muslim world has not been successful. Poll results have shown that unfavorable views of the US are as high as 82%, 69 %, and 70% in the Palestinian territories, Turkey, and Egypt respectively. In fact, the Op-Ed stated that unfavorable views of the US in Pakistan have risen from 63% in 2008 to 68% in 2009 according to a recent Pew survey.

In addition, after President Obama came to office in 2009, the number of home-grown Islamist terror plots inside the US has risen dramatically compared to the previous years. The Year of 2009 represents the highest level of domestic home-grown Islamic radicalism in the US since 2001.

We must question why President Obama's approach with the Muslim world has not succeeded yet in at least having a more positive effect in improving the US image in several Muslim countries or in decreasing the rate of home-grown Islamic radicalism on the home front. One of the main reasons for this lack of success is that US strategic communications with the Muslim world was largely based on the assumption that the problem of Islamic Radicalism and hatred to America is primarily because of the US foreign policy with the Muslim world and thus changing this policy will change the latter. This can only work if the main problem was in the US approach; however, if the main problem was in the Muslim world, such an approach cannot succeed as it will be like trying to change the keys to open a room while the problem is in the rusty lock! In the latter situation, changing the lock - or in other words changing the Muslim world itself - is crucial to solving the problem.

Improving the image of the US in the Muslim world before the proliferation of the phenomenon of Islamism was a very different task compared to trying to improve its image after the phenomenon has proliferated. While traditional approaches of diplomatic, economic and social engagement had the possibility of working with the earlier situation, non-traditional ways to weaken Islamism are now needed for today's situation.

Islamism, or the broad collection of movements to impose intolerant forms of Islamic teachings and practices, has made many in the Muslim world unable to be satisfied with any political system that does not implement Sharia law in some form or fashion. Any Un-Islamic system is seen as an enemy to Islam that must be opposed through violent or even non-violent means. Dr. Al-Zawaherri (second in command of Al-Queda) was clear is his offer for the US to convert to Islam in order to stop terrorism against it.

In addition, Islamism has made many in Muslim societies dream about regaining the superiority of the historical Islamic Caliphate over the world. This is clearly observed on web sites and comments by many Muslims in the Muslim world. In this case, it is hard for many Islamists to accept a country like the US that is viewed as denying this position to the Islamic world.

Furthermore, Islamism has aggravated criticism of the US as it advocates and supports values of freedom and liberty around the world that are seen by Islamists as "Un-Islamic" - particularly the values of freedom of religion, women's rights, gay rights, and more humane punishments for criminals (e.g., not stoning women for committing adultery). Some may argue that Muslims are still very interested to come to the US even if they see it as "Un-Islamic". The answer is simply that many Muslims are attracted by the economical factors rather than the values of freedom and liberty in the US and the West.

The above complex situation illustrates that the US may need to address the challenge of weakening the Islamism phenomenon first in order to improve its image in the Muslim world as this phenomenon plays an important role in creating hatred of America. In other words, removing the obstacle that impedes improving the US image in the Muslim world or at least significantly reducing it is fundamental to succeed in this diplomatic mission.

Trying to satisfy the Muslim world by changing the US will not be effective unless the US is ready to end its values of freedom and liberty and adopt an Islamic Sharia system.

The US administration must realize that the problem of poor views of this country in the Muslim world could actually be predominantly in the Muslim world and not in America. In such a case, changing the latter or the Muslim world rather than the US is fundamental to improving the image of the US among Muslims. This also can lead to the conclusion that the US may need to work on changing the perception of the Muslim world to its foreign policy rather than focusing on changing its foreign policy to win the hearts and minds of Muslims. Sophisticated psychological and behavioral modification methods may be needed to achieve this.

In this context, it is also important to raise the point that the Muslim world is in far greater need than the US to improve its image in the world as its image has been painted by terrorism and barbarism especially in the last few years.

In brief, no matter what the non-Islamic world does - short of submitting to the Islamic Sharia - the Islamists will never be satisfied completely. The US must either change itself to adopt an Islamic system to satisfy the Muslim world or alternatively assist in changing the latter. Weakening the Islamism phenomenon is vital to ultimately improve the image of the US in the Muslim world as Islamism is currently a - if not the - major obstacle to enhancing the US image among Muslims.

Napolitano Claims Airline
Security System Worked!!

On Christmas Day, we were reminded once again that there is Islamist evil in the world intent on destroying America and killing Americans.

A Nigerian Islamist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, attempted to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight during its approach to Detroit. He was subdued by passengers and the flight crew.

In spite of the fact he was able to smuggle an explosive onto the plane, and in spite of the fact that his father had warned U.S. officials about his son’s “extreme religious views” (translation: jihadism), Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said on Sunday the airline security system ultimately worked!

Once again we see a politically correct-driven disconnect among government leaders between the ideology of jihad and the acts of jihad. What has been the consistent thread among every publicized Islamist terror attack in America this year?

Jihad.

We will continue to be vulnerable so long as too many government officials are more concerned about giving “offense” to Islam than in really protecting us from acts of jihad motivated by the ideology of jihad.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Jihad 101

Center for Security Policy | Dec 28, 2009
By Frank Gaffney, Jr.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano came in for some well-deserved criticism for declaring over the weekend that "the system worked" with respect to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's effort to blow up the plane he was flying from Amsterdam to Detroit. By Monday, she was backpedalling, acknowledging that "our system did not work in this instance."

In truth, for a lot of Americans, Ms. Napolitano has not had much credibility since she tried to ban "terrorism" from the official lexicon of her department. But arguably the most serious indication that she is wholly ill-equipped to carry out her present responsibilities can be found in another - as yet uncorrected - statement she made on Sunday. She told CNN's "State of the Union" that, "Right now, we have no indication [that Abdulmutallab's actions were] part of anything larger."

Not "part of anything larger"? Is she serious? Does she take us for fools?

Read my lips, Secretary Napolitano: Abdulmutallab's actions were absolutely, positively part of something larger. What they were part of is the comprehensive theo-political-legal program that authoritative Islam calls Shariah.

This supremacist program requires its adherents to engage in jihad, or holy war, to bring about the triumph of Islam under a global theocracy, one that will impose Shariah on Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Pursuant to Shariah, jihad should - wherever practicable - be pursued through the terrifying use of violence. Where violent jihad is impractical or would be counterproductive, Shariah directs faithful Muslims to use other means to advance the same goal. Koran expert Robert Spencer calls the latter "stealth jihad."

The question must be asked: Are we seeing a dramatic increase in violent jihadism in America - National Public Radio reported on Saturday that there had been fourteen attempts in 2009 (compared to two or three in recent years) and that they had been increasingly "operational" in character, not just "aspirational" - because violence is now seen to be practicable here?

Specifically, could it be that jihadists have been emboldened by what they see as weakness and/or fecklessness on the part of the U.S. administration? Could steps Team Obama has taken - such as the closure of Guantanamo Bay, the release of some hardened terrorists held there to Yemen (where Abdulmuttalab claims he got his plastic explosive device), granting others access to civilian courts and constitutional rights, etc. - actually be emboldening them to believe that murder and mayhem will accelerate the defeat and conquest of the infidel West?

The U.S. government was warned by Abdulmutallab's father at least two months ago that his son had been "radicalized" - in other words, that he had embraced Shariah. That being the case, he was transformed from being one of the hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world who are not a problem into one of those who are.

In the wake of the latest, narrowly averted massacre at the hands of jihadists, we are being promised executive branch reviews of the practice that, in the wake of his father's warning, put Abdulmuttalab on the improbably named Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE) database - but did not revoke his multiple entry U.S. visa or otherwise keep him from flying. Multiple congressional investigations will be launched, as well.

Such reviews will, however, amount to little more than a waste of time and taxpayer resources - and possibly a serious distraction - if they do not address, and henceforth require screening for, the motivation for such attacks. It is absurd to think that "the system" is going to do anything other than exponentially increase the amount of discomfort for airline passengers as long as it does not weed out those who embrace as an article of faith their duty to destroy us.

We need to be equally clear about the menace posed by those who adhere to Shariah but profess to seek to "Islamicize" America through non-violent means. In the wake of the recent actual and averted attacks, the press has, for example, trumpeted the views of parents of five jihadists from Northern Virginia, imams at mosques where they worshipped and prominent fixtures in the various Muslim Brotherhood front organizations. Unsurprisingly, all of them profess shock - shock! - that these young people would want to do as they have been taught to, pursuant to Shariah: namely, follow the way of jihad against the Dar al-Harb (the "House of War" that is the non-Muslim world).

Nowhere in these disinformation operations is any mention made of the Muslim Brotherhood's self-declared mission in America. According to an internal Brotherhood strategic plan dating from 1991, that mission 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 so that it is eliminated and Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions."

As long as Janet Napolitano, Attorney General Eric Holder, the intelligence community, law enforcement, the military, the media and most especially President Obama refuse to acknowledge what animates our enemies, we will never develop an effective strategy for defeating them, let alone successfully implement it. Part and parcel of achieving such an understanding is to stop allowing the stealth jihadists in our midst to blind us to this reality.

Homegrown Jihadists Have a Wide Range of
WMD Weapons to Choose From

Information from declassified reports (see story below) reveals the wide range of weapons of mass destruction jihadists have available to them.

We know there are dozens of Hezbollah, Hamas and al Qaeda terror cells on American soil. What’s more, homegrown jihadism is clearly on the rise, as reported today on Fox News—especially the decentralized, single person or small group type of jihadism. (We have been pointing this out for months.)

Decades ago, authorities battling the KKK understood the supremacist ideology of hate that was driving the KKK.

Until the haze of political correctness is sufficiently blown away, many in law enforcement and counterterrorism today will be battling the acts of jihad without understanding their connection to the supremacist political ideology of radical Islam. That’s like fighting with one hand tied behind the back.

CIA briefs law enforcement on possible WMD attacks

December 14, 9:54 AM • Law Enforcement Examiner • Jim Kouri

[The Central Intelligence Agency released declassified reports to the National Association of Chiefs of Police regarding CBRN threats to the United States. The following is a synopsis of the information contained in these disturbing reports.]

Al-Qaeda and associated extremist groups have a wide variety of potential agents and delivery means to choose from for chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) attacks. Al-Qaeda's end goal is the use of CBRN to cause mass casualties; however, most attacks by the group — and especially by associated extremists — probably will be small scale, incorporating relatively crude delivery means and easily produced or obtained chemicals, toxins, or radiological substances. The success of any al-Qaeda attack and the number of ensuing casualties would depend on many factors, including the technical expertise of those involved, but most scenarios could cause panic and disruption.

Several groups of mujahidin associated with al-Qaeda have attempted to carry out "poison plot" attacks in Europe with easily produced chemicals and toxins best suited to assassination and small-scale scenarios. These agents could cause hundreds of casualties and widespread panic if used in multiple simultaneous attacks.

Al-Qaeda is interested in radiological dispersal devices (RDDs) or "dirty bombs." Construction of an RDD is well within its capabilities as radiological materials are relatively easy to acquire from industrial or medical sources. Osama Bin Laden's operatives may try to launch conventional attacks against the nuclear industrial infrastructure of the United States in a bid to cause contamination, disruption, and terror. A document recovered from an al-Qaeda facility in Afghanistan contained a sketch of a crude nuclear device.

Spray devices disseminating biological warfare (BW) agents have the highest potential impact. Both 11 September attack leader Mohammad Atta and Zacharias Moussaoui expressed interest in crop dusters, raising our concern that al-Qaeda has considered using aircraft to disseminate BW agents.

Analysis of an al-Qaeda document recovered in Afghanistan in summer 2002 indicates the group has crude procedures for making mustard agent, sarin, and VX.

Chemical Agents

Terrorists have considered a wide range of toxic chemicals for attacks. Typical plots focus on poisoning foods or spreading the agent on surfaces to poison via skin contact, but some also include broader dissemination techniques.

Terrorists have considered using a number of toxic cyanide compounds. Sodium or potassium cyanides are white-to-pale yellow salts that can be easily used to poison food or drinks. Cyanide salts can be disseminated as a contact poison when mixed with chemicals that enhance skin penetration, but may be detected since most people will notice if they touch wet or greasy surfaces contaminated with the mixture.

Hydrogen cyanide (HCN) and cyanogen chloride (ClCN) are colorless-to-pale yellow liquids that will turn into a gas near room temperature. HCN has a characteristic odor of bitter almonds, and ClCN has an acrid choking odor and causes burning pain in the victim's eyes. These signs may provide enough warning to enable evacuation or ventilation of the attack site before the agent reaches a lethal concentration.

Both HCN and ClCN need to be released at a high concentration—only practical in an enclosed area—to be effective, therefore, leaving the area or ventilating will significantly reduce the agent's lethality. Exposure to cyanide may produce nausea, vomiting, palpitations, confusion, hyperventilation, anxiety, and vertigo that may progress to agitation, stupor, coma, and death. At high doses, cyanides cause immediate collapse. Medical treatments are available, but they need to be used immediately for severely exposed victims.

Mustard Agent is a blister agent that poses a contact and vapor hazard. Its color ranges from clear to dark brown depending on purity, and it has a characteristic garlic like odor. Mustard is a viscous liquid at room temperature.

Mustard is not commercially available, but its synthesis does not require significant expertise if a step-by-step procedure with diagrams is available. Initial skin contact with mustard causes mild skin irritation, which develops into more severe yellow fluid-filled blisters. Inhalation of mustard damages the lungs, causes difficulty breathing, and death by suffocation in severe cases due to water in the lungs. For both skin contact and inhalation, symptoms appear within six to 24 hours. There are only limited medical treatments available for victims of mustard-agent poisoning.

Sarin, tabun, and VX are highly toxic military agents that disrupt a victim's nervous system by blocking the transmission of nerve signals.

These agents are not commercially available, and their synthesis requires significant chemical expertise. Exposure to nerve agents causes pinpoint pupils, salivation, and convulsions that can lead to death. Medical treatments are available, but they need to be used immediately for severely exposed victims.

There are a wide range of toxic industrial chemicals that—while not as toxic as cyanide, mustard, or nerve agents—can be used in much larger quantities to compensate for their lower toxicity.

Chlorine and phosgene are industrial chemicals that are transported in multi-ton shipments by road and rail. Rupturing the container can easily disseminate these gases. The effects of chlorine and phosgene are similar to those of mustard agent.

Organophosphate pesticides such as parathion are in the same chemical class as nerve agents. Although these pesticides are much less toxic, their effects and medical treatments are the same as for military-grade nerve agents.

Biological Agents

Anthrax or Bacillus anthracis, the bacterium that causes anthrax, is capable of causing mass casualties. Symptoms usually appear within one to six days after exposure and include fever, malaise, fatigue, and shortness of breath. The disease is usually fatal unless antibiotic treatment is started within hours of inhaling anthrax spores; however, it is not contagious. Few people are vaccinated against anthrax. Anthrax can be disseminated in an aerosol or used to contaminate food and water.

Cutaneous anthrax can be caused by skin contact with B. anthracis. This form of the disease, which is easily treated with antibiotics, is rarely fatal.

Botulinum toxin is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which occurs naturally in the soil. Crude but viable methods to produce small quantities of this lethal toxin have been found in terrorist training manuals. Symptoms usually occur 24 to 36 hours after exposure, but onset of illness may take several days if the toxin is present in low doses. They include vomiting, abdominal pain, muscular weakness, and visual disturbance.

Botulinum toxin would be effective in small-scale poisonings or aerosol attacks in enclosed spaces, such as movie theaters. The toxin molecule is likely too large to penetrate intact skin.

Ricin is a plant toxin that is 30 times more potent than the nerve agent VX by weight and is readily obtainable by extraction from common castor beans. There is no treatment for ricin poisoning after it has entered the bloodstream. Victims start to show symptoms within hours to days after exposure, depending on the dosage and route of administration.

Terrorists have looked at delivering ricin in foods and as a contact poison, although we have no scientific data to indicate that ricin can penetrate intact skin. Ricin will remain stable in foods as long as they are not heated, and it will have few indicators because it does not have a strong taste and is off-white in color.

Radiological and Nuclear Devices

Radiological Dispersal Device or RDD is a conventional bomb not a yield-producing nuclear device. RDDs are designed to disperse radioactive material to cause destruction, contamination, and injury from the radiation produced by the material. An RDD can be almost any size, defined only by the amount of radioactive material and explosives. A passive RDD is a system in which unshielded radioactive material is dispersed or placed manually at the target.

An explosive RDD—often called a "dirty bomb"—is any system that uses the explosive force of detonation to disperse radioactive material. A simple explosive RDD consisting of a lead-shielded container—commonly called a "pig"—and a kilogram of explosive attached could easily fit into a backpack.

An atmospheric RDD is any system in which radioactive material is converted into a form that is easily transported by air currents. Use of an RDD by terrorists could result in health, environmental, and economic effects as well as political and social effects. It will cause fear, injury, and possibly lead to levels of contamination requiring costly and time-consuming cleanup efforts.

A variety of radioactive materials are commonly available and could be used in an RDD, including Cesium-137, Strontium-90, and Cobalt-60. Hospitals, universities, factories, construction companies, and laboratories are possible sources for these radioactive materials.

Improvised Nuclear Device or IND is intended to cause a yield-producing nuclear explosion. An IND could consist of diverted nuclear weapon components, a modified nuclear weapon, or indigenous-designed device. INDs can be categorized into two types: implosion and gun assembled. Unlike RDDs that can be made with almost any radioactive material, INDs require fissile material—highly enriched uranium or plutonium—to produce nuclear yield.
