At What Point Is Speech Not Protected?

In his column below, Wall Street Journal columnist Daniel Henninger raises an important point that ACT! has been posing for years.

At what point does speech which advocates violent jihad, murder and mayhem against Americans by Islamists cease being protected under the First Amendment?

It is our opinion that jihadist speech, which includes websites and other communications, needs to be evaluated in a historical and doctrinal context.

That context is that the “call to jihad,” or the advocacy of jihad, very often leads to jihad. In other words, there is an arguable cause and effect, or at least a high positive correlation. There is an argument that the call to jihad poses an imminent threat to life.

Osama bin Laden declared holy war against America, which was followed by the attacks on September 11th. Nidal Hasan responded to the advocacy of jihad and perpetrated the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. Each of the publicized foiled terror plots in the last four months was initiated by adherents to jihadist ideology.

As Henninger notes:

“First Amendment law has never dealt with a widely distributed ideology that has as its raison d'être the mass murder of Americans and destruction of American property.”

Well said. Because whether America likes it or not, at some point we are going to have to wrestle with how the First Amendment applies to jihadist speech. Choosing not to will simply mean more jihadists and more terror attacks.

Hasan, Not KSM, Is the Real Problem
By DANIEL HENNINGER


If it accomplished nothing else, the Obama administration's announcement last Friday to try 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in lower Manhattan blew the Nidal Hasan murders out of the news. The KSM fiasco deserves all the attention it gets. What Hasan represents, however, is a more immediate concern.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is an old-school jihadi. They sit in far-off redoubts, assembling terror teams of foreign nationals who now must figure out how to get themselves and their plot inside the U.S. Not impossible, but harder than before 9/11.

Hasan is new school. He is what's known as a homegrown terrorist. Virtually all the Islamic terrorist plots thwarted in the U.S. in recent years were homegrown, not designed from afar by a KSM.

Najibullah Zazi, the Colorado airport-shuttle driver arrested in New York this September and charged with conspiring to detonate bombs, came to the U.S. in 1999.

The Fort Dix Six, convicted in December of conspiring to attack U.S. military personnel, were mainly ethnic Albanians whose family came to New Jersey in the 1980s.

Zakaria Amara, the leader of the Toronto 18, who were planning to blow up skyscrapers in Canada, was born in a Toronto suburb.

How do individuals sitting in Colorado, New Jersey, Toronto or Texas suddenly transform into mass murderers for jihad? Most of the time, they become radicalized by spending vast amounts of time viewing violent Islamic Web sites run from abroad.

Two years ago, Lawrence Sanchez of the New York City Police Department's intelligence division told the Senate Homeland Security Committee that the Internet is "the most significant factor in the radicalization that is occurring in America." Mr. Sanchez described this process as "self-imposed brainwashing."

In New York Times reporter David Rohde's account of his captivity by the Taliban, he wrote that "watching jihadi videos" was his guards' favorite pastime. He describes them as "little more than grimly repetitive snuff films" of executions.

If you sit in the United States and watch this stuff 'round the clock—self-brainwashing—it is fully protected activity. It qualifies as "speech," protected by the panoply of First Amendment law. These protections exist nowhere else in the world.

The biggest controversy surrounding Maj. Hasan is that the Army knew about his radical Islamic sympathies, from the Walter Reed lecture and the monitored emails to the English-speaking, American-born Yemeni imam Anwar Awlaki.

The argument is that the Army should have mustered him out of the service and thereby avoided the 13 murders. Really? After kicking him out of the Army, there was no probable cause for authorities to surveil a civilian Nidal Hasan. In time he as easily could have killed 13 Americans in a suburban Texas mall.

Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, as the judge presiding over the 1995 trial of the "blind sheik," Omar Abdel Rahman, for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, had to instruct the jury that the sheik's violent, "holy war" sermons at New York mosques were legal, protected activity (he was convicted of conspiracy). There is a mosque in Manhattan at 96th Street and Lexington Avenue, on whose sidewalk one can hear adherents spouting support for violence against the U.S. That, too, is protected.

A violent ideology is just an ideology, and that is protected speech. It requires acts to put in motion aggressive surveillance, such as wiretapping.

I think the Hasan case shows this is wrong, or at least too dangerous. First Amendment law has never dealt with a widely distributed ideology that has as its raison d'être the mass murder of Americans and destruction of American property.

For now this is the way it is: Future Hasans can get jacked up all day on kill-the-Americans Web sites, and we have to wait until they put in motion a conspiracy like Fort Dix or the Colorado jihadists. Or until they start shooting.

Politics is the only recourse.

This is what the political fight was through the Bush years—fights over the Patriot Act, warrantless wiretaps of conversations between U.S. citizens and foreign suspects, using the Swift financial data system to track terrorist transfers (or, with KSM, military tribunals versus civil courts). The argument against these policies was that "our values" require that judges review and approve virtually all such activity.

The problem with this view is that "our values" were already protected to an unprecedented degree. Raising the bar higher is asking too much of the people assigned to catch all these self-radicalizing jihadists.

Holder’s al Qaeda Incentive Plan

Post  Admin on Fri 20 Nov 2009, 2:01 pm

“Holder’s al Qaeda Incentive Plan”

Dear Elaine,

Most Americans are justifiably outraged by Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, in a civilian criminal court in New York.

There are countless reasons to oppose Holder’s decision, not the least of which is the potential for compromising our intelligence assets in a public, criminal trial where Mohammed’s attorneys will demand release of such classified information.

This is not a hypothetical concern. During the trial of Omar Abdel-Rahman, the perpetrator of the 1993 New York trade center bombing, Rahman’s attorneys forced the release of the list of unindicted co-conspirators developed by the prosecution.

One of the names on the list? Osama bin Laden. Soon after, bin Laden fled Sudan.

The insightful Wall Street Journal column by William McGurn (see below, highlights added) provides another powerful reason why Holder’s decision is so outrageous. Bottom line: Holder’s decision has given terrorists a greater incentive to target civilians.

The perversity of this defies description. This is just one more in a long line of decisions by the Obama administration that is putting America—and our lives—at greater risk.


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

Holder’s al Qaeda Incentive Plan

By William McGurn

Wall Street Journal, November 17, 2009

When it comes to terrorists, you would think that an al Qaeda operative who targets an American mom sitting in her office or a child on a flight back home is many degrees worse than a Taliban soldier picked up after a firefight with U.S. Army troops.

Your instinct would be correct, because at the heart of terrorism is the monstrous idea that the former is as legitimate a target as the latter. Unfortunately, by dispatching Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other al Qaeda leaders to federal criminal court for trial, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will be undermining this distinction. And the perverse message that decision will send to terrorists all over this dangerous world is this: If you kill civilians on American soil you will have greater protections than if you attack our military overseas.

"A fundamental purpose of rules such as the Geneva Conventions is to give those at war an incentive for more civilized behavior—and not targeting civilians is arguably the most sacred of these principles," says William Burck, a former federal prosecutor and Bush White House lawyer who dealt with national security issues. "It demolishes this principle to give Khalid Sheikh Mohammed even more legal protections than the Geneva Conventions provide a uniformed soldier fighting in a recognized war zone."

We don't often speak of incentives in war. That's a loss, because the whole idea of, say, Geneva rights is based on the idea of providing combatants with incentives to do things that help limit the bloodiness of battle. These include wearing a uniform, carrying arms openly, not targeting civilians, and so on.

Terrorists recognize none of these things. They are best understood as associations of people plotting and carrying out war crimes, whether that means sowing fear with direct and indiscriminate attacks on marketplaces, offices and airlines—or by engaging enemy troops without distinguishing uniforms, so that the surrounding civilians essentially become used as human shields. Terrorists reject both the laws of war and the laws of American civil society. To put it another way, they reject both the authority and the obligations their legal rights imply.

None of this seems to bother Mr. Holder. Since he dropped his bombshell on Friday, much commentary has focused on the possibility that KSM might be found not guilty. That, however, is unlikely: Mr. Holder is not a fool, and everyone in the Obama administration appreciates the backlash that would occur if a KSM trial results in an acquittal. Thus, the men he will send for trial will be those against whom he has the most evidence.

The perversity here is that the overwhelming evidence of their war crimes gain them protections denied a soldier fighting in accord with the rules of war.

It even gains them more protections than their associates who attack military targets. This double standard means that the perpetrators of the USS Cole bombing are sent to military tribunals while the perpetrators of 9/11 are sent to federal court.

Andrew McCarthy has a unique perspective on the move to criminal trials. As an assistant U.S. attorney in 1993, he successfully prosecuted Omar Abdel Rahman (the "blind sheikh") for the first bombing of the World Trade Center. Even though the cases were somewhat different—that plot was conceived, plotted and carried out on U.S. soil—Mr. McCarthy says the experience persuaded him that federal trials are a bad way of handling terror.

"At first, I was of the mind that a criminal prosecution would uphold all our high-falutin' rhetoric about the constitution and majesty of the law," says Mr. McCarthy. "But when you get down to the nitty gritty of a trial, you see one huge problem: The criminal justice system imposes limits on the government and gives the defendant all sorts of access to information, because we'd rather have the government lose than unfairly convict a man. You can't take that position with an enemy who is at war with you and trying to bring that government down."

By going down this line, says Mr. McCarthy, Mr. Holder has invited any number of dangers: making the Manhattan courtroom a target for terrorist attack, inviting the disclosure of sensitive intelligence, opening the possibility that some al Qaeda operative will be acquitted and released within the U.S., etc.

Worst of all, he says, is turning the laws of war upside down: Why fight the Marines and risk getting killed yourself or locked up in Bagram forever when you can blow up American citizens on their own streets and gain the legal protections that give you a chance to go free? With this one step, Mr. Holder is giving al Qaeda a ghastly incentive: to focus more of their attacks on American civilians on American home soil.

"It is foolish to think that al Qaeda does not train to our system and look for our vulnerabilities," says Mr. McCarthy. "Remember what Khalid Sheikh Mohammed told his captors when we got him, 'I'll see you in New York with my lawyer.' It seems he knows our weaknesses better than our government does."

“How military missed signs”

A willful ignorance of jihadist ideology due to
political correctness?

Dear Elaine,

The article below (highlights added) is another disturbing, yet unsurprising, assessment of the systemic failure by those in the military, intelligence, and counterterrorism communities to recognize the warning signs of a jihadist poised to act.

Dr. Walid Phares, during his presentation at the American Congress for Truth webcast conducted on November 7th (and available for viewing here), made the point that, eight years after 9/11, our nation’s leaders have still failed to adequately identify and define the jihadist enemy.

Sources we have within the government confirm this appalling reality.

As Brigitte Gabriel notes in her recent video message, the politically correct driven fear of offending Muslims and the apologists for radical Islam has crossed the line from being exasperating to being deadly.

Thank you for being part of the largest citizen action organization in America dedicated to waking up our country to the reality of the threat radical Islam poses—and the ways in which political correctness enables it.

How military missed signs
Failure to grasp threats from those in uniform

by Joel Mowbray

As Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent, officially begins his inquiry this week into the disturbing failures that enabled Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to stay in uniform, it must go beyond the normal excuses related to bureaucratic bungling.

With the discussion last week devolving into interagency finger-pointing, lost was the simple fact that the failures were systemic. Although the military has done valiant work fighting in Muslim lands, it doesn't seem to grasp how to assess when Muslim personnel could pose an internal threat.

It's easy to rely on hindsight to second-guess after the fact, but based on what we already know, Maj. Hasan had openly embraced Islamic jihadist ideology. Apparently no one who learned of his online screeds or his verbal rants to colleagues understood this, however.

What officials knew about Maj. Hasan was neither trivial nor inconsequential.

In spring, Maj. Hasan wrote an Internet posting that compared suicide bombers to soldiers who sacrifice their lives by falling on a grenade. His reasoning was that suicide bombers "help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers."

No more explicit justification could be made for the terrorists who have been targeting U.S. service personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet reports indicate there was no formal investigation into a soldier who praised suicide bombers who "save Muslims" by killing the very people among whom he lived and worked.

More ominous is that only mild concern was sparked by Maj. Hasan's repeated contacts with a cleric openly affiliated with al Qaeda. Although the content of the 10 to 20 e-mails has been described officially as related to "religious guidance" and Maj. Hasan's "research," no rationale could possibly exist for any soldier independently contacting a high-level enemy figure.
Around the time from late 2008 into early this year that the two were in contact, imam Anwar Al-Awlaki issued a fatwa calling on Muslims to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq. In January, Mr. Al-Awlaki published a manifesto aptly titled "44 Ways to Support Jihad," a how-to manual on all the paths available - from violence to finance - for his followers.

Had investigators merely Googled Imam Al-Awlaki, they would have found his jihad manual and an in-depth profile on him at the web site of the NEFA Foundation, a U.S.-based counterterrorism organization that maintains the largest public database of open-source terrorism intelligence. They also would have been reminded at the NEFA Web site that Imam Al-Awlaki's recorded sermons helped inspire the terrorists who unsuccessfully targeted Fort Dix, N.J., three years ago. In fact, the Fort Dix plotters specifically praised the imam's lecture encouraging self-motivated jihad.
None of that mattered to investigators, because Maj. Hasan didn't explicitly discuss violence or terrorism with his mentor. Traditional metrics for assessing criminal danger, though, do not neatly apply to jihadists.

Most jihadist attacks are not driven by appeals to violence or wanton bloodlust. The stated motive for most jihadists is some form of defending Islam or innocent Muslims from an evil aggressor.

Someone falling into the lure of jihadist ideology becomes a threat long before he even discusses violence. Danger begins with the embrace of a paranoid worldview in which the United States has waged war on pious, peace-loving Muslims. That the United States is fighting self-identified Muslims in two Islamic nations, of course, only makes it easier for jihadists to win over Muslims.

Maj. Hasan didn't just parrot jihadist lines about evil America, though. He openly argued for Islamic violence against the United States. And that was just what he said in front of his colleagues.

Yet despite a pattern of truly incendiary comments - such as telling colleagues during a PowerPoint presentation on Islam in 2007, "We love death more then [sic] you love life!" - he remained in uniform. Much of the evidence points to a critical question: Was Maj. Hasan treated differently because he was a Muslim?

Perhaps the simplest analysis is by way of comparison. In one reported instance, Maj. Hasan told his colleagues that he supported the Muslim who shot two soldiers, killing one, at a military recruitment center in Little Rock, Ark.

Imagine if Maj. Hasan had instead been a secular, garden-variety anti-American radical who told his colleagues that he supported the murder of his fellow soldiers. Is there any doubt such remarks would have generated at least more than the indifference Maj. Hasan's various comments did?

Just as Muslim soldiers should not be presumed unpatriotic, less cannot be expected of them than from their non-Muslim peers.

Defending terrorists and openly identifying with the enemy should be an obvious infraction for any soldier. The same goes for demonizing America or contacting known terrorists.

If the military doesn't change the mind-set that allowed those actions to be ignored or shrugged off, the consequences could be even more devastating the next time.

How Do You Eat An Elephant?

10,505…20,952…22,164

by Guy Rodgers, Executive Director

Dear Elaine,

I have been asked how we will know when we have “victory” over the threat of radical Islam. How will we measure “success?”

Let me answer that with an old proverb, which asks “How do you eat an elephant”? Answer: “One bite at a time.”

In other words, EVERY “bite” we take produces successes and gets us closer to ultimate victory. At times it may not appear that much progress is being made. At other times, like today, we have measurable signs of progress that should encourage you and empower you.

Today’s email is a snapshot of three measures of progress—three “bites” we are taking—and a call to you to act if you haven’t already done so. Because the more of us who join in and take a “bite” out of the “elephant” of radical Islam, the more successes we will achieve and the closer to ultimate victory we will get.


10,505

This is the number of views recorded by U Stream during the November 7th webcast conference, “Radical Islam’s Threat to America,” sponsored by our “sister” organization, American Congress for Truth.

This conference was the #1 most watched webcast nationwide on U Stream on November 7th. It was also the 4th highest watched webcast worldwide!

To our knowledge, no organization committed to defeating the threat of radical Islam has held a conference of this kind that reached this many people, including many elected officials and staff.

THIS is a measure of progress. THIS is a measure of success.

The conference is now available to watch on the American Congress for Truth website. If you didn’t see it, or know an elected official or staff member that needs to see it, simply click here.


20,952

As of 9:49 A.M. Eastern Time this morning, this is the number of people who have added their names to our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.


20,952 are the most signatures, in the shortest amount of time, ever gathered for a petition in the history of ACT! for America!

THIS is a measure of progress. THIS is a measure of success.

But we need thousands more names, for two reasons. First, to continue to raise public awareness about the misdeeds of CAIR. Every person who signs it and sends it on to their friends increases the prospect for the petition to really go viral.

Second, to ultimately produce so many signatures that it will be difficult for Congress to ignore us. There are already many in Congress who are backing away from CAIR. A petition with 50,000 or even 100,000 names will be more motivation for “fence sitters” to decide CAIR should be investigated and that they don’t want anything to do with CAIR.

SO IF YOU HAVEN’T YET SIGNED THE CAIR PETITION, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? WE NEED YOU!

CLICK HERE,ADD YOUR NAME, AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!



22,164

As of 9:47 A.M. Eastern Time this morning, this is the number of views of the Brigitte Gabriel video entitled “Brigitte Gabriel blasts political correctness,” released on Friday, November 13th.

22,164 are the most views ever of an ACT! for America video in a 72 hour time period.

What’s more, this video was ranked by YouTube as the “Most Popular” video over the weekend for “non-profit and activism” organizations!

THIS is a measure of progress. THIS is a measure of success.

If you haven’t yet viewed this powerful video message from Brigitte, click here, and then forward the link on to others you know.


Here are three opportunities for you to help us take a “bite” out of the “elephant.” Don’t think for a minute that your actions can’t or won’t make a difference. If every one of our members who haven’t yet signed the petition took just three minutes to read and sign it today, we would triple the number of signatures in one day.

That’s the power of “when everyone does a little, together we accomplish a lot.”

Please ACT! today!

Yours for the America we love,



Guy Rodgers

Brigitte Gabriel Blasts the

Scourge of Political Correctness

www.actforamerica.org

Did you know that, from November 5th to November 10th, 85% of the news stories about the Ft. Hood attack produced by ABC, CBS and NBC did not mention the words “terror” or “terrorist”?

Did you know that investigators found personal business cards belonging to Nidal Hasan that had the initials “S.O.A” — “Soldier of Allah”?

Only now are more and more news reports and commentators acknowledging, some very grudgingly, that Hasan was a jihadist. There simply is too much evidence to ignore — even for the most stubborn politically correct apologists for radical Islam.

Brigitte Gabriel has, of course, been following the Ft. Hood terrorist attack very closely, conducting numerous interviews since it happened.

Today she gives her take on how this happened, why it could have been prevented, and what this means for the future.

Click here, or the image below, to watch this very important message from Brigitte Gabriel. Then forward this email to everyone you know so we can take Brigitte’s message viral!

And if you haven’t yet signed our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, click here to do so today. As of Friday morning, November 13th, nearly 19,000 people have added their names to this petition. How about you?

Jihadists Playing Us for Suckers

Dear Elaine,

It is heartening to watch more and more commentators, pundits and analysts now making the same points that Brigitte Gabriel has been making for years. Better late than never!

If all goes according to plan, we should have a special email alert to send to you tomorrow. Stay tuned…

Jihadists In Military Playing U.S. for Suckers

by Cal Thomas

By now, the script should be disturbingly familiar. Whether in the Middle East, or increasingly in America, a fanatical Muslim blows up or goes on a shooting spree, killing many. This is quickly followed by "condemnations" from "Muslim civil rights groups," like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). We are then warned by the president and some newspaper editorials not to jump to conclusions, or to stereotype. Yasser Arafat wrote this script, which he used with great success throughout his bloody career as a terrorist.

Suddenly, the issue of gays in the military doesn't seem as important as jihadists in the military. If you were an enemy of America, not only would you fight overseas and develop nuclear weapons (Iran), you would also engage in an even more effective strategy by striking at America's underbelly. This is our most vulnerable region because we now tolerate virtually everything, indulge in political correctness and subscribe to a bogus belief that if radical Islamists can see we mean them no harm, they will mean us no harm.

The federal government at all levels has hired and promoted Muslims to influential positions. It requires "sensitivity training" for federal employees, including those who work at the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Last week, the House Judiciary Committee, dominated by liberal Democrats, defied the White House and removed from the USA Patriot Act a tool for tracking non-U.S. citizens in anti-terrorism investigations. As our enemies grow stronger and more emboldened, they see us becoming weaker and less committed.

No amount of evidence -- from Koran verses urging the killing of "infidels," to cries of "God is great," reportedly shouted by the alleged Ft. Hood shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan -- will cure our self-deception. Sun Tzu famously wrote that all war is deception. But it takes two to deceive and the United States is behaving like a willing partner.

People claiming to know Hasan told interviewers he made frequent statements against the wars and the U.S. presence in Islamic countries. Texas Republican Rep. Michael McCaul, told reporters after he was briefed on the shootings that Hasan "took a lot of advanced training in shooting." Why would a psychiatrist need advanced training in shooting unless he believed in murder as therapy? Shouldn't that, coupled with his statements about "the aggressor" and other actions -- including his preference for Muslim clothing -- have alerted someone in authority that he might be a time bomb waiting to go off? Yes, absolutely. But who wants to jeopardize a career by raising such questions and becoming the target of "civil rights groups" and politically correct dupes? Intimidating Americans into silence when they know better is also a very effective strategy when fighting a war.

Sound minds not brainwashed by our own "re-educators" should have seen this coming. Though born in America to Jordanian immigrant parents, Hasan described himself as a "Palestinian." He got into trouble by attempting to proselytize some of his patients.

Most top federal agencies, including the Pentagon and DHS, now have offices of "civil liberties," offices recommended by the 9/11 Commission to focus on "outreach" to the Muslim community. In this, they follow efforts by the Bush administration, which dispatched Karen Hughes to tell Muslim women in Saudi Arabia that American women are so free they can drive their own cars. The Saudi women were not impressed.

It's one thing to be suckered by others. It's quite another to sucker yourself.

How much longer will we tolerate fighting this war as if it were a minor crime wave? Our enemies are fighting to win and they are fighting everywhere, including within our borders. People trained to appear non-threatening, until the threat becomes obvious and it is too late to do anything about it, are infiltrating our government and society at every level.

It is irrelevant that some have put the number of radicalized Muslims worldwide at 10 percent. Even if that figure is accurate, one hundred million jihadists can cause a lot of damage, as they plot the destruction of Western democracies. Other wars have been won with far fewer soldiers and far fewer dupes.

“Jihad Denial Syndrome” Exposed
Dear Elaine,

The facts are emerging. The warning signs were there. Story after story is breaking new information. Even some in the “establishment media,” such as ABC News, have produced news segments revealing the evidence that Nidal Hasan was a radical Islamist.

The FBI had seen warning signs. So had the CIA and the Joint Terrorism Task Force. Numerous fellow officers had witnessed Hasan make statements, even during presentations he gave, that should have set off alarm bells.

Some of the latest news to come out is that Hasan had been in communication with an al Qaeda imam — and authorities knew it and dismissed Hasan’s contacts with the conclusion that he was doing “research” for a thesis!

The tapestry of jihad being pieced together has prompted Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman to call for hearings to investigate who knew what, when, and why action was not taken.

How is it possible that so many warning signs and red flags were ignored, rationalized, or dismissed?

There are at least two reasons.

The first is that too many in leadership in our country, whether in government, the military, or counterterrorism, do not want to connect the dots between the jihadist ideology, so clearly permeating the holy books of Islam, and the act of jihad.
ACT! has been exposing this failure ever since its founding. Dr. Walid Phares, during his presentation at the American Congress for Truth webcast conference “Radical Islam’s Threat to America” (held this past Saturday), stated astonishingly that eight years after 9/11 there is still widespread denial in our government about who the enemy is and why the enemy acts as he does.

This may help explain why, on the day of the Ft. Hood massacre, the FBI released a statement declaring “this was not a terrorist act.” How could they “rush to judgment” with such a faulty claim so quickly?

Answer: “Jihad Denial Syndrome.”

The second reason is linked to the first, which we discussed in our email alert yesterday — a culture of political correctness.

College campuses, Hollywood and television, and much of the “establishment media” are principal drivers of this culture of political correctness. In this worldview, there is a denial of fact and evidence that literally boggles the mind.

Our jihadist enemies throughout the world don’t hide the jihadist ideology — they celebrate it. It’s there for all the world to see — if it wants to. Too many of our leaders don’t want to.

Another enforcer of this political correctness is organizations like CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. For years CAIR has bullied, browbeat, intimidated and smeared anyone who dares to speak the truth about radical Islam. (See our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR.)

Last Thursday night, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad denounced the violence — and then emphasized that this had nothing to do with Islam.

So did other representatives of other Islamist organizations.

In other words, they didn’t denounce the Islamist, jihadist ideology that led to the violence. Indeed, they in effect denied such an ideology existed. Awad was crystal clear when he stated, falsely, that no religion or ideology could justify such an atrocity.

And in doing so these Islamist enforcers of political correctness fired a warning shot across the bow of the media, the military and the government. They were making it clear that politically correct “Jihad Denial Syndrome” must be adhered to.

Eleven days ago ACT! for America launched a national petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR, due to the mounting revelations of CAIR misdeeds and ties to terrorist organizations.

This petition is even more important now, in the aftermath of Ft. Hood. Why? Because America can no longer afford to be held hostage to a politically correct “Jihad Denial Syndrome” by a terrorist-tainted organization like CAIR.

This is why we continue to urge you, if you haven’t already done so, to sign our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR.

Senator Lieberman is doing the right thing by convening hearings to investigate the Ft. Hood terrorist act.

We can’t change the culture of political correctness overnight, or the “Jihad Denial Syndrome” that political correctness has helped spawn.

But we are not powerless. There are actions we can take.

Join us today in signing the petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR.

One talk show host said this morning that political correctness can be annoying, even silly, but at Ft. Hood it was deadly.

A Culture of Political Correctness

by Guy Rodgers

www.actforamerica.org

Dear Elaine,

The horrific massacre at Ft. Hood has exposed the degree to which political correctness impacts government and military action — and media coverage.

Fox News contributor Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (retired) exhibited a courage and clarity that has been lacking in most media coverage when, during two different interviews I saw, he angrily and indignantly denounced what he referred to as a “culture of political correctness” in the leadership of the military.

He pointedly asserted that this was an act of Islamist terrorism, and listed just some of the telltale signs to back up his position. For instance:

Nidal Hasan opposed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and would argue with his patients, vets returning from combat, against the justification for the wars.


Hasan said the “war on terror” was in fact a war against Islam.


There is evidence that Hasan believed “infidels” deserve beheading.


Internet postings in Hasan’s name months earlier compared suicide bombers to heroic soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades.

Col. Peters went on to blame the culture of political correctness for the failure of the Army to take any action against Hasan, in spite of an awareness that Hasan held these views.

Other evidence of Hasan’s beliefs include statements he made to colleagues that Muslims have the right to rise up against the U.S. military, and that they have the right to rise up against their “oppressors” — the United States.

A fellow student at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences complained about a presentation Hasan gave that “justified suicide bombings and spewed anti-American propaganda.”

Here’s the disturbing question that needs to be asked: Could this act of terrorism had been prevented had there not been such a politically correct reluctance to act on what was known about Hasan?

Imagine if the Army had acted. It’s easy to envision the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) indignantly blasting the Army with statements alleging “discrimination.”

Yet if the Army or law enforcement authorities had stepped in, taken action months ago, and brushed aside the typical and predictable rants from groups like CAIR, is it possible that twelve dead soldiers and one dead police officer would be alive today?

Why are so many in government and the military apparently afraid of “offending” a group like CAIR, which deserves to be investigated for its many questionable activities and ties to terrorists, not accommodated? (See our petition calling for such an investigation.)

But in the aftermath of this terrorist act, too few in the media or government have been willing to call it that. There has been a desperate search for another motive, the most common focusing on his mental state.

Edina Lekovic, communications director for the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), also appeared on Fox News. Lekovic was unequivocal in her remarks, claiming Hasan was “clearly disturbed” and comparing him to the killers at Virginia Tech and Columbine.

Remarkably, only a minute or so after making this unsubstantiated claim as if it were fact, when asked about any possible connection to Islam, she warned we must not “rush to judgment.”

But isn’t that precisely what Lekovic did when she asserted Hasan was “clearly disturbed?” Is she a psychiatrist? Did she examine him?

Of course not. What qualifies Lekovic to assert Hasan was like the Columbine killers? Nothing.

She did exactly what she is warning others not to. She “rushed to judgment.” And while anyone who is contending that this massacre has all the earmarks of a terrorist attack is challenged, no one on the Fox News program challenged Lekovic’s unverifiable claim falsely asserted as fact.

Why not? Political correctness?

More political correctness. Prior to killing 13 people on Thursday, Hasan gave away furniture and Korans, a telltale sign of a jihadist preparing for martyrdom.

So how does a ]Washington Post story characterize Hasan’s giving furniture away? As an act of kindness.

But the tide may be turning. Facts are stubborn things. There are just too many signs that Hasan was in fact a radical Muslim bent on jihad. Too many signs to be ignored.

ABC News last night ran a headline asking if the Army missed signs that Hasan was an Islamic extremist.

On Fox News Sunday, Bill Kristol referred to an AP story that quoted colleagues of Hasan at Walter Reed Hospital who admitted they did not report his suspicious actions due to fear of appearing to be discriminatory toward Muslims.

It may well be determined that Hasan had emotional problems. It may also turn out that he didn’t.

But as Brit Hume stated on Fox News Sunday, even if Hasan had emotional or psychological issues, the facts clearly point to the conclusion that Hasan was a radical Islamist who acted on his beliefs.

You can help enlighten America about the truth of this terrorist attack.

Forward this email to everyone you know.

And help us shed light on one of the leading “enforcers” of the political correctness that is undermining our ability to prevent terrorism. If you haven’t done so already, sign our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR’s questionable activities and ties to terrorists.
Let’s not let the purveyors of political correctness mislead us yet again.

How Easily Some Are Duped by CAIR:

The Information CAIR Doesn’t Want You To See;

The Petition CAIR Doesn’t Want You To Sign

www.actforamerica.org


Dear Elaine,

We got a GREAT start to our petition launched on Friday calling for a government investigation of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), with over 7,000 people signing thus far.

If you haven’t yet signed the petition (which takes only a couple minutes to read and sign), please consider this.

In the new blockbuster book, Muslim Mafia, the authors give an account of how CAIR, working in tandem with a county police officer, helped scuttle a valuable counter-terrorism training program — and left the door wide open for a breach of a classified police database, putting all of us at risk!

Here is a point by point summary of the details from the book that should shock you and make your blood boil!

The Fairfax County (Virginia) Police Department (FCPD) had a training contract for its officers with the Higgins Center for Counter Terrorism Research, which it maintained for several years without complaint.


Then, at least two Muslim officers on the force complained about the program — one of them a sergeant named Mohammad Rasool.


CAIR complained as well, claiming the program portrayed Islam in a “bad light.” In fact, CAIR officials had at least two phone conversations to complain about the program with the FCPD’s Chief, David Rohrer.


In 2006, the FCPD canceled the counter-terrorism training program.


Also that year, Chief Rohrer spoke at CAIR’s annual fundraising dinner, where he said, “Let us choose tolerance over intolerance, acceptance over prejudice, and understanding over ignorance.”


Unbeknownst to Rohrer, Rasool was combing through a classified federal police database. Why? Because a fellow Muslim told Rasool he thought he was under surveillance. Rasool’s search through the classified database confirmed that the fellow Muslim was under surveillance. Rasool then tipped him off.


When agents went to arrest Rasool’s friend, they found him destroying evidence. Knowing they had a mole, agents worked backward and discovered it was Rasool.


The very counter-terrorism training program CAIR and the two Muslim officers complained about, and Chief Rohrer canceled, was in part designed to help prevent what Rasool did!

In other words, this was a case, not of the “fox guarding the henhouse,” but the “fox” (Rasool and CAIR) telling the “farmer” (Chief Rohrer) that the “henhouse” shouldn’t be guarded — because doing so would offend the fox!

This is just ONE example of how government officials, intoxicated with political correctness, have been duped by CAIR.

Yet many in Congress and the media continue to support and defend CAIR!

They need to hear from the grassroots of America that this state of affairs is simply unacceptable! That’s why we are urging you to sign our new petition, as a first step in a national effort to draw attention to CAIR and the need for a government investigation. Then forward this email to everyone you know.

You can be certain that CAIR does not want you to sign this petition. You can be certain CAIR does not want you to read Muslim Mafia and the stunning revelations in its pages.

CAIR and its allies are hoping the facts about CAIR get swept under the rug. Choosing not to sign this petition increases the possibility that this will, in fact, happen. Indeed, WorldNetDaily reported last week that there has been a virtual media blackout of Muslim Mafia and the information it reports.

YOU CAN HELP CHANGE THIS BY SIGNING OUR PETITION AS OUR FIRST STEP IN DRAWING NATIONAL ATTENTION TO THE “DIRTY LAUNDRY” CAIR IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO HIDE!

Please don’t let CAIR continue its efforts to undermine our national security! You CAN make a difference by signing our petition today!

THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PETITION ACT! FOR AMERICA HAS EVER LAUNCHED!!! I AM APPEALING TO EVERY ACT! FOR AMERICA MEMBER TO JOIN ME TODAY IN SIGNING THIS PETITION!
It’s Time for a Federal Investigation of CAIR

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION TODAY!

by Brigitte Gabriel, President, ACT! for America


“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”

For years there has been plenty of smoke around CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. In the past twelve months that smoke has thickened.

First, CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing trial. Then, the FBI severed official ties with CAIR due to its connections to Hamas, a designated terrorist organization.

Now, the curtain has been completely thrown back with the release of the must-read blockbuster book, Muslim Mafia. Thanks to a daring undercover operation, Muslim Mafia contains many stunning allegations, including (these are quotes from the front flap of the book):

“CAIR has previously unreported ties to al Qaeda…”


“CAIR board members and advisors have privately advocated ‘Uzi jihads’ against American cities…”


“CAIR planted spies inside key law enforcement agencies…”

This is just the tip of the iceberg! Yet, astonishingly, many government leaders and members of the media continue to defend CAIR.

IT’S PAST TIME OUR GOVERNMENT DID ITS DUTY IN PROTECTING NATIONAL SECURITY AND LAUNCHED APPROPRIATE INVESTIGATIONS OF CAIR !!!

Therefore, I am urging you, in the strongest terms possible in an email, to take the following actions TODAY!!!

Please read the petition below;
Click here to add your name to this petition;


Forward the petition to those you know would share your concerns.


Forward the petition to bloggers, websites and other online outlets you believe will publicize this petition.

There will come a time when we ask you to contact your Member of Congress about this.
But first, Washington needs to hear our COLLECTIVE VOICE — that accommodating CAIR will no longer be tolerated! That protecting our national security demands that a formal government investigation of CAIR be launched.

So please, read,SIGN , and forward this urgently important petition today! When we have completed the petition drive Lisa Piraneo, our Director of Government Relations in Washington, will deliver the petition to the appropriate congressional leadership.

And remember, the only information of yours we will include on the petition is your name and state.

Always devoted,



Brigitte Gabriel

We Call on the U.S. Government to Conduct an Immediate and Thorough Investigation into the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in the Interest of National Security

We are GREATLY CONCERNED about past and ongoing activities by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and look to our U.S. Government to immediately commence a thorough investigation into the organization, including its leadership, affiliates and activities.

We REMIND our elected officials that CAIR has documented ties to the terrorist organization Hamas and that CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial (a trial that ended with guilty verdicts on 108 counts of funneling $12 million to Hamas).

We REMIND our elected officials that CAIR has individuals either under its current or former employ, or as its affiliates, who have direct ties to terrorism both in the U.S. and abroad: such as Nihad Awad, CAIR’s current national executive director, who participated in a meeting about how to disguise payments to Hamas terrorists as charity; Abdurahman Alamoudi, a CAIR director who is now serving 23 years in federal prison for plotting terrorism; and Omar M. Ahmad, CAIR’s founder and former chairman, who was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land case, to name but a few examples.

We are deeply CONCERNED at recent reports that CAIR has worked to undermine U.S. law enforcement by tipping off suspected terrorists under investigation, and by directing Muslim-Americans to not cooperate with the F.B.I.

We are DISMAYED that, despite these facts, CAIR continues to be the primary group consulted by both media and government agencies with regard to the Muslim-American community. In the name of true transparency, therefore, we REQUEST that Congress and the Administration support the following investigative actions:

The U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE share with each member of the U.S. Congress an executive summary of the findings that led them to name CAIR as a co-conspirator in a terrorism case.
The House Sergeant at Arms work with all Members of Congress and their top staff, particularly those Members who sit on the House Judiciary, Homeland Security, and Intelligence Committees, to perform background checks on staff under their employ, considering evidence that CAIR has strategically worked to place staffers there.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service perform a full and thorough investigation into the business activities of CAIR, specifically their lobbying activities, to judge if they are in violation of their federal non-profit status as a 501c3 organization.

Further, we REJECT all attempts by CAIR to discredit those who call for a formal investigation into their organization by falsely arguing such action is “anti-Muslim.” This has been an oft-used distraction tactic of theirs, and it is time it came to an end. This issue is about CAIR and only CAIR.

We REMIND our elected officials that their primary responsibility to our nation’s citizens is to PROTECT AND DEFEND, and we therefore URGE them to take immediate action on this matter.


If you agree it’s time for action as described in the above petition, please click here to sign the petition,
and then forward it to everyone you know.

Radical Islamist Killed in Shootout Near Detroit

“Shooting Range” Discovered Inside Mosque

CAIR Comes to Defense of the Radical Islamist


Dear Elaine,

In yet ONE MORE incident of homegrown jihad this year, federal agents were fired on by an Islamist imam, who then returned fire and killed the man. (See story below).

Such incidents are now an almost weekly occurrence. This latest one comes just two days after two men were arrested in Chicago for planning terrorist acts overseas.

The slain imam, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, had been recorded in a 2008 conversation saying “You cannot have a nonviolent revolution.”

The story below notes that Abdullah was the leader of a radical Islamist group “whose primary mission is to establish an Islamic state within the U.S.”

Agents discovered what was described as a “shooting range” inside the mosque.

Predictably and right on cue, a leader of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, came to Abdullah’s defense. Dawud Walid, Executive Director of CAIR’s Michigan chapter, said “I knew nothing of him that was related to any nefarious or criminal behavior.”

Mr. Walid must have missed those shell casings and bullet holes in the wall in the “shooting range” inside the mosque.

It is standard operating procedure for CAIR to dismiss allegations against terror suspects, regardless of the amount or quality of the evidence arrayed against such suspects.

TOMORROW WE ARE GOING TO MAKE A MAJOR EMAIL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING CAIR — SO STAY TUNED.

Feds: Leader of radical Islam group killed in raid


AP – Detroit Police enter the temporary home to the Masjid Al-Haqq mosque in Detroit Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2009. …

• Slideshow: Radical Islamic leader killed in Detroit raid

By ED WHITE, Associated Press Writer – 31 mins ago

DETROIT – A leader of a radical U.S. Sunni Islam group killed in a shootout with federal agents near Detroit repeatedly told followers that the government was the enemy and they must be willing to take on the FBI — even if it meant death, authorities said.

"You cannot have a nonviolent revolution," Luqman Ameen Abdullah said, according to a 2008 conversation secretly recorded by a confidential FBI source.

Abdullah, 53, was killed Wednesday at a warehouse in Dearborn, where agents were attempting to arrest him on charges that included conspiracy to sell stolen goods and illegal possession and sale of firearms. He was one of 11 people named in a criminal complaint after a two-year investigation.

FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold said Abdullah refused to surrender, fired a weapon and was killed by gunfire from agents.

The 43-page complaint described Abdullah as an extremist who believed the FBI bombed New York's World Trade Center in 1993 and the Oklahoma City federal building two years later. Abdullah beat children with sticks at his Detroit mosque, the complaint claimed, and was trained with his followers in the use of firearms, martial arts and swords.

Neither Abdullah nor his co-defendants were charged with terrorism. But he was "advocating and encouraging his followers to commit violent acts against the United States," FBI agent Gary Leone wrote in an affidavit filed with the complaint.

The FBI said Abdullah, also known as Christopher Thomas, was an imam, or prayer leader, of a radical group named Ummah whose primary mission is to establish an Islamic state within the U.S.

Abdullah told followers that it was their "duty to oppose the FBI and the government and it does not matter if they die" and to "simply shoot a cop in the head" if they wanted the officer's bulletproof vest, Leon wrote.

The affidavit also said bombs, guns and even the recipe for TNT were among Abdullah's regular topics with his allies. Group members and former members said they were "willing to do anything Abdullah instructs and/or preaches, even including criminal conduct and acts of violence," the FBI agent wrote.

But that description doesn't match what Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' Michigan chapter, said he knew of Abdullah.

"He would open up the mosque to homeless people. He used to run a soup kitchen and feed indigent people," Walid said. "I knew nothing of him that was related to any nefarious or criminal behavior."

Walid said Abdullah had a wife and children. A phone number for the family had been disconnected.

Ummah believes that a separate Islamic state in the U.S. would be controlled by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown, who is serving a life sentence in a federal prison in Colorado for shooting two police officers in Georgia in 2000, Leone said.

Al-Amin, a veteran of the black power movement, started the group after he converted to Islam in prison.

"They're not taking their cues from overseas," said Jimmy Jones, a professor of world religions at Manhattanville College and a longtime Muslim prison chaplain. "This group is very much American born and bred."

Abdullah's mosque is in a brick duplex on a residential street in Detroit. A sign on the door in English and Arabic reads, in part, "There is no God but Allah." The mosque was located elsewhere in the city until the property was lost in January because of unpaid taxes.

When the eviction took place, a search turned up empty shell casings and large holes in the concrete wall of a "shooting range," Leone said.

Seven of the 10 people charged with Abdullah were in custody, including a state prison inmate, the U.S. attorney's office said. Three were still at large. Another man not named in the complaint also was arrested.

The FBI built its case over two years with the help of confidential sources close to Abdullah who recorded conversations and participated in undercover operations involving the sale of furs, laptop computers, televisions, energy drinks and power tools.

Abdullah received at least 20 percent of any profit and claimed the "Prophet Muhammad said that it is okay to participate in theft; as long as that person prays, they are in a good state," Leone wrote in the affidavit.

Imad Hamad, regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in Dearborn, said the FBI briefed him about the arrests.

"We know that this is not something to be projected as something against Muslims," Hamad said.

“Flying Imams” Win; America Loses


The commentary by Star-Tribune columnist Katherine Kersten below reminds us, yet again, that when it comes to combating radical Islam, many in our own government seem determined to unilaterally disarm us.

The good news from the “flying imams” case is that the citizens who reported the suspicious activity were not sued — thanks to congressional legislation that ACT helped get passed in the summer of 2007.

That was when Brigitte Gabriel sent out an email alert urging people to contact Congress to pass the bill protecting citizens from lawsuits when they report suspicious activity in public places like airports. As a result, over 100,000 phone calls poured into Congress, and the bill passed.

The bad news is that, incredibly, the law enforcement personnel, the “first responders,” were not so protected. This is why ACT! for America is supporting legislation to protect first responders from such lawsuits as well as legislation to expand the protection of citizens from such lawsuits. At the appropriate time we will email you ACTION ALERTS regarding action you can take to help us get these bills passed.

In the meantime, you can help us increase the power of our collective voice by joining our fall “Call to Action” campaign. Brigitte launched this in September with the goal of adding 750 new Patriot Partners and Contributing Members to our organization.

We’re pleased to report that as of today we are 87% of the way to our goal. If you have already signed on, thank you!

If not, and you’re able to help us reach this goal, please click here to become a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or click here to make a one-time contribution as a Contributing Member. (If you prefer to mail a check, click here to print out a form to mail with your check).

Katherine Kersten: 'Flying imams' case is settled at our expense

It's all too easy to apply hindsight to a potentially perilous situation.

By KATHERINE KERSTEN, Star Tribune

http://www.startribune.com/opinion/commentary/65839372.html?page=1&c=y

Last update: October 25, 2009 - 11:44 AM

The "flying imams" and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are declaring victory in their legal war against law-enforcement personnel and safety procedures at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Their "victory" -- aided and abetted by a judge arrogantly dismissive of law-enforcement realities -- is a major setback for transportation safety.

The case made news three years ago when the six imams were removed from a U.S. Airways jet after passengers and airline employees reported that the six were engaging in suspicious behavior, including changing seats into a so-called 9/11 pattern; cursing the United States and its conflict with Saddam Hussein; chanting "Allah, Allah" when boarding was called, and unnecessarily requesting seat-belt extenders that could be used as weapons.

The imams were questioned and released. Subsequently, they sued U.S. Airways, the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), the officers involved and even passengers they suspected of reporting their behavior, until an outraged, bipartisan Congress passed a law giving the passengers immunity.

Last week, a settlement was announced in the case. Details remain confidential, and the judge must approve the agreement. But the parties have said publicly that -- though there is no admission of guilt or fault -- money will change hands. MAC's insurance company exercised its right to take charge of the defense and chose to settle, according to MAC spokesman Patrick Hogan.

No wonder. In a ruling this summer, U.S. District Judge Ann Montgomery pinned the law-enforcement officials involved to the wall -- one from the FBI and six from MAC -- second-guessing their conduct with the luxury of a Monday-morning quarterback.

When the officers were summoned to Flight 300 on Nov. 20, 2006, they believed that passengers might be in danger, and they had to make quick decisions based on limited information. Montgomery, in contrast, had the opportunity to review hundreds of pages of briefs, depositions and exhibits before concluding -- in hindsight -- that the officers had erred in detaining the imams. After hearing lawyers' arguments, she deliberated for almost three months before penning a 47-page dissertation on what, in her view, the officers should or shouldn't have done that day.

Most important, she -- unlike the officers -- knew with the benefit of hindsight that passengers had not been in danger.

On July 24, 2009, Montgomery issued her ruling. "No reasonably competent officer," she wrote, could have believed he was acting legally by detaining and questioning the imams in a way that, in her view, amounted to an "arrest." The fact that at least 15 officers involved in the incident -- from the MAC, the Federal Air Marshal Service, the FBI and the Secret Service -- had all apparently believed they were acting appropriately and responsibly did not appear to give her pause. The MAC officers, Montgomery ruled, were actually guilty of a "willful or malicious wrong."

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, worries about the impact of a settlement reached under such circumstances.

"Terrorism operates on fear," says Jasser. "Transportation authorities don't know when, where or how terrorists will strike, so they must be vigilant." After this settlement, he adds, the men and women charged with protecting the public will have to contend with a "competing fear" as they make tough decisions: "They may ask, 'If I detain and question someone who is acting suspiciously, will I cost my employer thousands of dollars, or even lose my job?'"

This chilling effect may lead to risky changes in airport security policies and pilot training, Jasser warns. As a result, officials may miss "vital nuances" in behavior that put the rest of us in danger.

Despite a potential increase in safety risks at the airport, is the flying imams' settlement at least a victory for Muslim civil rights, as CAIR has declared? On the contrary, says Jasser -- a Muslim -- it's a victory for the legal strategy of "victimization," which grievance groups have often employed to "shake down" defendants. CAIR and the imams dismiss national security concerns, he says, in order to portray airport security measures as motivated by ethnic and religious bigotry. In the process, they ignore the central role of suspicious behavior and cast themselves as victims of irrational bias.

This obsession with victimization leads CAIR and the imams to ignore Muslims' real interests, Jasser adds.

"Muslims have responsibility for religious reform, aimed at removing the fuel that powers the growth of radical Islam. We will have succeeded when we no longer see arrests for terrorist-related activities -- as we did recently in Denver, New Jersey and Boston," he says. "The real victory for Muslims will come when the cancer of political Islamist ideology, which feeds terrorism, disappears."

ANOTHER Homegrown Terror Plot Foiled!

Dear Elaine,

Another Islamic jihadist was arrested this week, his planned terror plot foiled. (See story below). This is the fifth publicized terrorist plot foiled in the last 90 days.

And the common thread of them all? Jihad.

Thus far this year, more than four times as many jihadists have been arrested on American soil than in any previous year since 2001. As the number of terror plots increase, how long will it be before one is successful?

We’ve said this before, but it’s worth saying again. For years, Britain’s response to increased Islamic militancy and demands has been a course of accommodation and appeasement.

The result has been increased terror threats and empirical evidence revealing that children of Islamic immigrants are more radical than their parents.

How radical? Check out this YouTube video HERE: of a group of young Muslims in England calling for the death of Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders.

Incomprehensibly, much of America’s political and academic leadership, including the White House, is following the same failed path Britain has trod for years.

It has only led to more radicalization in Britain. The same fate awaits America unless the grassroots of America finds its voice and demands a different course of action based on acknowledging the root of the threat — the jihadist ideology of political Islam.

Feds: Sudbury man planned terrorist attacks at shopping malls

By Laura Crimaldi and Laurel J. Sweet
Wednesday, October 21, 2009 -
http://news.bostonherald.com/news/regional/view.bg?articleid=1206282&srvc=home&position=emailed

A 27-year-old man from Sudbury has been arrested on charges he planned terrorism attacks inside and outside the United States, including a plot to use automatic weapons to open fire at shoppers and emergency responders in shopping malls, federal prosecutors said today.

Tarek Mehanna, of 6 Fairhaven Circle, is accused of conspiring with Ahmad Abousamra and others to obtain the automatic weapons needed to carry out a mall ambush in which they planned to open fire at random, said Acting U.S. Attorney Michael K. Loucks. Mehanna was already out on bail from a federal arrest last year, charged with lying during a terrorism probe.

Mehanna was arrested at his home at 6 a.m. this morning and booked at the Sudbury police station before being turned over to federal authorities. Federal agents have searched Mehanna’s home and say he is a U.S. citizen. A bail hearing has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. in federal court.

Abousamra left the United States for Syria on Dec. 26, 2006, officials said. He said he would be back within a month after visiting his wife, but has never returned, officials said.

“At this time we don’t believe there are any active terrorist cells in this area,” said FBI special-agent-in-charge Warren T. Bamford.

The plot included plans to fire at emergency responders, but was abandoned because the men could not obtain the weapons, authorities said. They declined to name the mall or malls the men were targeting.

“We live in a free country. We don’t live in a police state. We do have places where if someone wants to do a terrorist act they can probably accomplish it,” said Loucks at a press conference. “We do our best. It’s amazing it hasn’t happened yet.”

Prosecutors also allege the men discussed participating in violent Jihad against American interests and their desire to die on the “battlefield.” The crimes are alleged to have taken place between 2001 and 2008.

Mehanna and Abousamra are also accused of traveling to Yemen in 2004 to find a terrorist training camp and learn how to engage in jihad, officials said.

Sudbury police chief Richard Glavin said he expects residents to be surprised by the development. There had been no calls for service to Mehanna’s home, where he lives with his parents, he said.

“I’m sure that people are concerned and alarmed,” said Glavin. “Regardless of where this occurred, in Sudbury or in other communities, this is obviously of concern to everyone.”

Mehanna was charged with lying to FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force investigators last year during a probe into whether Daniel Maldonado was participating in al-Qaeda training in Somalia. He was arrested in November 2008 at Logan International Airport while boarding a plane to Saudi Arabia for that offense. He was out on bail from that arrest when he was apprehended this morning.

In that case, FBI investigators interviewed Mehanna on Dec. 16, 2006, according to a federal complaint. The FBI alleges Mehanna knew Maldonado was training for jihad in Somalia. Further, the complaint states Maldonado was encouraging Mehanna to join him there.

Mehanna told the FBI Maldonado was working for a Web site in Egypt and had infrequent contact with him, the complaint states. The FBI asserted Maldonado had contacted Mehanna three times from Somalia on Dec. 12, 2006.

Maldonado was arrested in February 2007 near the Somalia border by Kenyan authorities on charges he trained at al-Qaeda camps in Somalia, the complaint states.

The Co-Author of Muslim Mafia Answers CAIR

Dear Elaine,

Yesterday we emailed you Rep. Sue Myrick’s op-ed response to CAIR’s counterattack. We know many of you forwarded this to others as it began popping up on blogs across the internet!

Today’s email contains a FrontPage Magazine interview with Dave Gaubatz (see below), co-author of the new blockbuster book Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.

In many prior emails we have pointed out the common propaganda strategy employed by Islamists of attempting to “demonize” those who level factual critiques against radical Islam. That’s why one of Gaubatz’s responses jumped out at us:

Instead of addressing the numerous factual pieces of intelligence showing their support of the Islamic terrorist ideology, they [CAIR] do exactly as their ‘internal documents’ indicate. They begin intimidation, extortion, blackmail, and other related threats to silence their critics.

We are grateful for the courage of Rep. Sue Myrick; the Representatives who joined her at the press conference last week calling for an investigation of CAIR (Rep. John Shadegg, Rep. Trent Franks, Rep. Paul Broun); Chris Gaubatz (who infiltrated CAIR); and the co-authors of Muslim Mafia, Dave Gaubatz and Paul Sperry.

Kelly Cook was asked by one of our chapter leaders yesterday why we push so hard to build a bigger and bigger organization. Here’s one reason — strength in numbers. The bigger we are, the stronger our voice, and the harder it will be for Islamists to succeed in their efforts to destroy those who speak out against their evil ideology.

CAIR Exposed – by Jamie Glazov
Posted By Jamie Glazov On October 21, 2009 @ 12:11 am In FrontPage

http://frontpagemag.com/2009/10/21/cair-exposed-by-jamie-glazov/



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 [1]. 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. [2] He can be contacted at davegaubatz@gmail.com [3].

FP: Dave Gaubatz, congrats on your book Muslim Mafia. The book is causing quite a bit of controversy. Tell us what the book is about in general and what is now going on.

Gaubatz: Thank you Jamie.

First I would like to thank everyone involved in the extensive research to make the book possible, the co-author Paul Sperry, and WND. I believe the book speaks for itself, showing CAIR Executives involvement in terrorist ties.
You ran a great review by Daniel Pipes of the book the other day here [4].

Naturally and fully expected, CAIR is on the defensive. Instead of addressing the numerous factual pieces of intelligence showing their support of the Islamic terrorist ideology, they do exactly as their ‘internal documents’ indicate. They begin intimidation, extortion, blackmail, and other related threats to silence their critics. These tactics have always worked for them for 15 years. Unfortunately for them they have finally met someone who knows how they play their game. I am not boasting but I was trained by the elite Federal Agency of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) and we are tenfold better at protecting national security than they are at supporting terrorism against America.

FP: CAIR is not hiding their displeasure with you. Do you feel physically threatened?

Gaubatz: I did not hide from terrorists in Iraq and there will never be a day I will hide in America from terrorists or their supporters. The day when Americans begin hiding from terrorists is the day we have lost our country and our children’s future.

I have always conducted my research in a legal and professional manner and the truth will always prevail. Maybe I am ‘old fashioned’ but I love my country and while others are intimidated by CAIR and their supporters, I am not. Americans need to be proud of our country and keep in mind many of the CAIR Executives and their supporters are not even U.S. citizens, and many of the ones who are do not (according to their own documents) pledge allegiance to America. Simply residing here does not give anyone the right to advocate the destruction of America.

FP: Let’s talk about some of the charges that CAIR is making against you. CAIR is accusing you of being an “Islamophobe.”

Gaubatz: I owe my life to Muslims from Iraq who risked their lives for me and many Americans in 2003. The family of Mohammed Rehaief (Iraqi lawyer who rescued Private Jessica Lynch in Nasiriyah, Iraq) are examples of Muslims who truly represent the Islamic people. They saved my life on several occasions and I had the opportunity to rescue their family from Al Qaeda who had threatened their lives.

Further I have always advised all children are innocent and I (like many American troops) would have given my life for them in Iraq. During many of my lectures I have informed people they should not fear the Islamic people, but have every right to be an ‘Islamic Scholar Phobe.’

There are numerous Islamic scholars in America who have openly called for the destruction of America and Israel. There are many Imams who openly distribute violent material in their mosques and Islamic Centers and they are allowed by many ‘liberal’ elected officials to do so. Somehow they believe calling for the death of innocent men, women, and children are covered under the First Amendment to our Constitution. I disagree as do millions of Americans.

FP: CAIR has advised that you have stated President Obama is Muslim.

Gaubatz: Everyone should always keep in mind CAIR leaders are taught to ‘twist’ words and statements of their targets (reference the CAIR document titled ‘hit list’ in the Muslim Mafia book). I have talked with hundreds of Islamic leaders and reviewed the materials in their mosques. A common Islamic belief is that ‘ALL’ humans are born Muslim and it is the fault of negligent parents who turn them into Jews and Christians.

Readers can ask Yusef Estes who is a prominent Islamic leader and frequent guest of Dar al Hijrah, Falls Church, VA. Estes was the primary witness to my ‘pseudo’ conversion to Islam a couple of years ago at Dar al Hijrah. Estes immediately informed me Muslims do not use the term converting to Islam. He advised people ‘revert’ back to Islam and explained the reasoning as I described above. Readers should know by now if I say something it can be verified. In this case I have an audio recording of my pseudo ‘conversion’ to Islam and my discussion with Estes at Dar Al Hijrah.

FP: CAIR has advised that you and your researchers illegally obtained the documents from their National office.

Gaubatz: CAIR’s Nihad Awad, Hooper and Saylor may have forgotten many of their conversations they had with several of my researchers. I can easily remind them in court with video and audio footage. The CAIR leaders were going to destroy documents related to criminal and national security interests. The materials were being shredded and ‘wiped’ clean from their computers. Unlike former ‘Enron’ employees I would never allow intelligence related to the destruction of our country to be destroyed by terrorist supporters. Anyone who would should question their own loyalty to our country and our children. I highly encourage investigative reporters to conduct an extensive review of why the CAIR Virginia and CAIR Maryland offices closed.

FP: Do you have plans on conducting further first-hand research and can you clarify when the researchers finished their research within CAIR?

Gaubatz: I have never stopped conducting first-hand research on Islamic terrorist groups operating in America. As long as our children’s futures are in jeopardy I will continue.

FP: Any recommendations for our elected officials and law enforcement?

Gaubatz: America has the best law enforcement in the world. The ‘street level’ officers want to protect America and do their jobs, but unfortunately many of their Directors have become ‘stooges’ for CAIR. I recommend the Directors of these brave officers either do their jobs or get jobs being ‘lackeys’ for CAIR or ISNA. America needs leadership not ‘lackeys.’

Pertaining to our elected officials. They need to decide if they support an American who served his country for 23.5 years, risked his life in Iraq for people of all races, religions and cultures, served his Presidents both Republican and Democratic, held our nations highest security clearances, and has evidence to verify anything I have ever written or said. Or they can support organizations that advocate the destruction of our country and the futures of our children. I give my utmost thanks to our elected officials who are supporting my research. They are America’s true heroes.

FP: Any words for CAIR or their supporters?

Gaubatz: I have always said I look forward to the day when CAIR Executives or any of their supporters and I can put everything on the table in a court of law (U.S., not Sharia). CAIR is afraid of the truth and will fold before this ever happens. The Executives should get with their attorneys, let their egos not play into their decisions, and reveal to them their complete involvement in their support of terrorist groups, their blackmail and intimidation tactics of small and large U.S. companies, of people, and the negative statements they have made toward ‘one another’ to my researchers. I have no problem reminding them.

Readers should keep up with WND, FPM, and my blog at www.daveg.us [5]. Videos, documents and more are forthcoming.

FP: Dave Gaubatz, thank you for joining us.

Rep. Myrick Responds to CAIR Attacks

Dear Elaine,

CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and its allies in the media are waging an all-out offensive against Rep. Sue Myrick and the other courageous Members of Congress who last week called for a federal investigation of CAIR.

CAIR has engaged in its typical disinformation efforts to change the subject and attempt to discredit the messengers.

The American people need to hear the facts about this. That’s why today we are forwarding you an op-ed written by Rep. Myrick (see below).

Please read it carefully and then forward it to everyone you know, especially people who have blogs and who submit content to blogs and websites.

This is also the time to use your social networking sites … Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Linked-In, etc. to get the word out. It is critical that the FACTS about this issue squash the LIES. If not, then the lies are what become reality. Remember, YOU ARE THE POWER BEHIND THIS ORGANIZATION. This is an example of how you can demonstrate that power and make a difference.

Thank you for taking action TODAY!

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

Rep. Sue Myrick op-ed:

Last week, I held a press conference on Capitol Hill attended by three of my colleagues in the House of Representatives to call for a federal investigation (s) into a non-profit group called the Council on American Islamic Relations (C.A.I.R.)

Here are the facts:

1. CAIR has documented ties to the terrorist organization HAMAS. This is stated fact by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

In an April 28, 2009 letter to US Senator Jon Kyl, the FBI wrote the following:
“As you know, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development in the United States v. Holy Land Foundation et al. (Cr. No. 3:04-240-P (N.D.TX.). During that trial, evidence was introduced that demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders (including its current President Emeritus and its Executive Director) and the Palestinian Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestinian Committee and HAMAS, which was designated a terrorist organization in 1995. In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI.”

In case you are not familiar with the Holy Land trial referenced above, it was a Dallas, Texas trial that ended with guilty verdicts on 108 counts of funneling money ($12 million) to HAMAS.

2. The purpose of our press conference was to make public an internal CAIR memo that documented CAIR's stated goal of placing CAIR interns in the offices of members of Congress, especially the members who serve on the Homeland Security, Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. Let me be clear here, CAIR, a group whom the FBI says is affiliated with the terrorist group HAMAS, is trying to place their interns in the offices of those members who serve on the three committees that handle national security related issues. National Security is the first responsibility of the federal government.

3. Following our press conference, CAIR, immediately labeled we four members as bigots and started their public relations campaign to discredit us by claiming that we were against Muslims working on Capitol Hill. We never said that. At no time during our press conference did we even insinuate that we were investigating Muslims being interns on Capitol Hill.
Go to
https://www.youtube.com/suemyricknc09

and watch the press conference yourself.

Our focus was and is on CAIR and CAIR alone, not Muslims.

Likewise CAIR tried to make this a Republican vs. Democrat thing, because the four members at the press conference happened to be Republican.

How then does CAIR explain Democrat Senator Charles Schumer’s call earlier this year for a government-wide ban on CAIR in the federal government due to their ties to HAMAS? Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer has likewise made public her opinions of CAIR and any Google search will find her remarks.

4. CAIR is spending time, money and energy to position themselves as the spokespeople for the moderate Muslim community. Problem is CAIR is not a moderate Muslim organization. It is a radical front group for HAMAS. So who is CAIR competing with for this designation? The real moderate Muslim groups/individuals in America. Groups and individuals like the following who are committed to countering Islamist extremism:

Dr. Hedieh Mirahmadi – President World Organization for Resource Development and Education (WORDE)
Zeyno Baran – Director for the Center for Eurasian Policy at the Hudson Institute
Farid Ghadry – President of the Reform Party of Syria
Manda Zand Ervin – Founder and director of the Alliance of Iranian Women
Omran Salman – Arab Reformists Project, 'Aafaq (Arabic for “horizons”).
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser – American Islamic Forum for Democracy
Karim Bromund – Director of Inter-Religious Affairs for the Islamic Supreme Council of America

I SUPPORT the Muslim individuals and groups mentioned above. These groups renounce terrorists and their radical ideology. They are trying their hardest to be heard and recognized in America, but are being overshadowed and out-funded by CAIR. Today, when something happens that impacts the Muslim community, the media calls CAIR (an unindicted co-conspirator to terrorism and a HAMAS front group) for comment on behalf of American Muslims. What an insult the media is performing on the Muslim community. Instead they should be calling Muslim groups/individuals like those named above. This is part of the reason we are focusing our attention on CAIR and exposing them for who they are. For one they pose a threat to our national security, and two, they deny the ability of legitimate Muslim groups to gain credibility.

5. In July of this year I held a summit on Capitol Hill where I introduced the leaders of eight moderate Muslim organizations to the heads of several US Agencies, Members of Congress and congressional staff. For example, they met with representatives from the State Department, USAID, Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. How can I be against Muslims working on Capitol Hill and hold such an event? Go to http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.3881/pub_detail.asp and read for yourself about this summit.

See through the lies and realize what is really going on here.

We are trying to expose a HAMAS Front Group (CAIR) for who they are, and they are crying we are anti-Muslim hoping that media outlets will ignore the terrorist claim and instead pick it up as a race/religion story. When those claims don’t work, they claim it’s a Republican political thing.

Americans, on this subject we need to stop the Republican vs. Democrat, Conservative vs. Liberal, Christian vs. Muslim division and unite on one simple point…. CAIR is a front group for HAMAS. It was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in a terrorism case that lead to 108 convictions of funneling $12 million to HAMAS. Because of the evidence produced in that case, the FBI severed all ties with them. This same CAIR, by their own admission, is trying to place people inside the offices of members of Congress who deal with national security issues (judiciary, homeland security and intelligence committees). I serve on one of those committees, Intelligence, am the co-chairwoman of the House Anti-Terrorism Caucus, and have spent the better part of the last four years working every day on terrorism related issues.

If we Americans fail to set aside our political, religious and ideological differences and unite when we encounter the enemy in such stark and plain terms, then God help us.

Announcing “Radical Islam’s Threat to America”
A FREE Webcast Conference

by Brigitte Gabriel


Dear Elaine,

Recently I announced the upcoming national live webcast conference for elected officials and staff, hosted by American Congress for Truth, ACT! for America’s “sister” organization dedicated to education and research on the threat of radical Islam.

This is an excellent opportunity for you and your local network to reach out to elected officials and their staffs in your community and get them introduced to this threat that most Americans do not yet understand. Encourage them to put this on their calendar and view the conference!

The webcast conference will take place on Saturday, November 7, 2009, from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., Eastern Time, with an hour break for lunch.

This conference is FREE of charge and open to all local, state and federal elected officials and their staffs.

It is also open, free of charge, to members of American Congress for Truth and ACT! for America.

To log on to view the conference, click on the following link anytime between 9:50 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Eastern Time on November 7th:

Logon link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/radical-islam-s-threat-to-america

Anyone who can watch a YouTube video on their computer can watch this webcast.

We in American Congress for Truth, the education and research organization I founded in 2002, have been working for months to launch this very important conference. Providing a conference on this scale, via FREE webcast, is a powerful tool that, to our knowledge, no other organization concerned with the threat of radical Islam has utilized.
What’s more, as far as we know, American Congress for Truth will be the first organization of its kind to provide a conference of this nature, free of charge, to elected officials across the country.

Don’t pass up this opportunity to make a huge difference in your community!

Elected officials and their staffs, at all levels of government, need to understand the relationship between the supremacist political ideology embedded within Islam and the advance of jihad.

They also need to understand the many ways in which jihad is being carried out against the United States, from violent jihad to “stealth” jihad to the advance of creeping shariah Islamic law into our society.

School board members need to understand how Islamists are distorting the history and doctrines of Islam in public school textbooks.

City Council and County Commission members need to understand how Islamists are suing local jurisdictions to demand excessive rights (such as the Muslim policewoman in Philadelphia who sued for the right to wear her hijab as part of her uniform).

State legislators, statewide elected officials, and federal officials need to understand how Islamists are pressing for the institution of shariah courts here in America – where aspects of shariah Islamic law, which are incompatible with American civil rights constitutional guarantees and statutes – will be implemented.

I urge you to pass this information along to every elected official you know. Encourage them to mark their calendars for November 7th and log on for this FREE webcast.

Topics include:

A Basic History of Islam, which I will teach.

The ideology and strategies of global jihad, taught by renowned terrorism expert Walid Phares, author of several books including Future Jihad.

Shariah Islamic law, taught by Nonie Darwish, a native of Egypt who lived under shariah law and who is the author of Cruel and Usual Punishment.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s plan to subvert America, which I will teach.

Islamist organizations operating in the U.S., taught by Frank Gaffney, former Defense Department official and President of The Center for Security Policy.

CAIR Exposed by Undercover Operation!

Blockbuster New Book Throws Back the Curtain

For years, Brigitte Gabriel and ACT!, along with many others, have repeatedly shined the light on CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), its links to terrorist organizations like Hamas, and its relentless efforts to demonize any person or organization that dared to criticize it.

In spite of the fact that numerous CAIR officials and persons connected to CAIR have been either arrested, indicted or convicted of various charges; in spite of the fact that CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorist trial (where 108 guilty verdicts were handed down); and in spite of the fact that the FBI has severed official ties to CAIR due to unanswered questions about its ties to Hamas…

CAIR continues to claim it is a “moderate,” “mainstream” Muslim organization.

You absolutely must read the explosive WorldNetDaily exclusive below (yellow highlights in the article are ours). Here’s just one excerpt:

Internal documents showing CAIR, despite claims of cooperating with law enforcement, actively works behind the scenes to mislead and deceive the FBI on behalf of terrorism suspects – and has even cultivated Muslim moles inside law enforcement who have tipped off FBI terror targets;

'Now we have proof' jihadis infiltrating D.C.
Congress seizes on explosive new book based on daring undercover CAIR probe


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

Posted: October 14, 2009
9:00 am Eastern

By Art Moore
©️ 2009 WorldNetDaily

CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad shakes hands with intern Chris Gaubatz, aka David Marshall, at CAIR's national headquarters in Washington, D.C., in 2008
In the wake of the sensational ACORN video sting operation by two young investigators, an even more daring and devastating undercover investigation – this one infiltrating the nation's most aggressive Muslim "civil rights" organization for six months – has produced stunning revelations about the supposedly "moderate" group, backed up by 12,000 pages of documents obtained during the secret op.

As revealed in a new book detailing the operation and its findings, the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, is not the beneficent Muslim civil-rights group it claims to be. Indisputable evidence now shows CAIR and other "mainstream" Islamic groups are acting as fronts for a well-funded conspiracy of the Muslim Brotherhood – the parent of al-Qaida and Hamas – to infiltrate and destroy the American system. Until now, CAIR has remained a powerful force in the nation's capital and across the country, from demanding the Obama administration stop FBI counter-terrorism tactics to compelling a school district to apologize to Muslims.

That influence, many believe, may be coming to an end, as a result of the undercover investigation – which included the son of a veteran counter-terrorism investigator, who grew a beard and converted to Islam, as well as two veiled female interns.

"Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," a WND Books publication by counter-terrorism investigator P. David Gaubatz and "Infiltration" author Paul Sperry, documents CAIR's ultimate purpose to transform the United States into an Islamic nation under the authority of the Quran.

The book already has prompted action on Capitol Hill.

With evidence from "Muslim Mafia" in hand, U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., co-founder of the Congressional Anti-Terror Caucus, and other members of Congress – including Reps. John Shadegg, R-Ariz., and Paul Broun, R-Ga. – plan to hold a press conference today in Washington calling for an investigation and an end to political lobbying by front groups such as CAIR.

"Now we have proof – from the secret documents that this investigative team has uncovered, coupled with the ones recently declassified by the FBI – that [radical Islamists] agents living among us have a plan in place, and they are successfully carrying out that subversive plan," Myrick writes in the foreword to "Muslim Mafia."

Noting that CAIR has tried to hide its strategy, finances, membership, internal disputes and much more from public view since its founding in 1994, Islam expert Daniel Pipes lauded "Muslim Mafia" for definitively exposing the "tawdry and possibly illegal inner workings of radical Islam's most aggressive organization in North America."

"The revelations in this book should both put CAIR out of business and permanently discredit the Islamist cause," Pipes said.

Undercover

The book begins as a real-life, heart-pounding thriller, with Chris Gaubatz, the son of co-author David Gaubatz, preparing to go underground as an intern for CAIR at its Herndon, Va., office.

Astoundingly, the younger Gaubatz, posing as a bearded Muslim convert, ends up with a position at CAIR's national office in Washington, just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol building, working alongside top leaders Ibrahim Hooper, Nihad Awad and Corey Saylor.

Along with declassified government documents, the book unveils thousands of e-mails, faxes and internal memos that were never meant for public viewing.

The new evidence shows that CAIR – already designated an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror-financing case in U.S. history – is part of an organized crime network in America made up of more than 100 other Muslim front groups that collectively comprise the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

"Muslim Mafia" also exposes the inner workings of the mob-like Brotherhood and explains its broader conspiracy of infiltrating the American government and "destroying Western civilization from within."

"The evidence found in the investigation is incontrovertible," said co-author Sperry, noting that the book has more than 40 pages of footnotes and an appendix with more than 50 pages of exclusive confidential documents.

The Brotherhood is known within Islamist circles as the "Ikhwan mafia" because of its highly organized structure, centralized control and covert operations. CAIR, reveals "Muslim Mafia," is one part of the network of front groups, cut-outs and shell companies that shield the Brotherhood's criminal activities from authorities.

"These guys talk about jihad and murdering Jews like the mob talked about killing – totally casual, like they were ordering pizza," said one FBI official in Washington quoted in the book.
Some key smoking-gun revelations detailed in "Muslim Mafia" include:

New evidence that CAIR was launched to support the Hamas terrorist group, and has transferred tens of thousands of dollars to a group recently convicted as Hamas' top fundraising arm in the U.S. – money that ended up aiding terrorist attacks on Israelis and Americans;


Internal documents showing CAIR, despite claims of cooperating with law enforcement, actively works behind the scenes to mislead and deceive the FBI on behalf of terrorism suspects – and has even cultivated Muslim moles inside law enforcement who have tipped off FBI terror targets;


CAIR is more closely tied to al-Qaida than previously reported;


CAIR claims to represent all Muslim Americans, however, it has victimized some 100 indigent Muslims in a massive fraud and threatened them when they tried to go to the media; and internally, personnel complaints reveal CAIR discriminates against Shiite Muslims and Muslim women within its own headquarters;


CAIR and its sister fronts are funded by foreign Muslim Brotherhood sources;


CAIR leaders share the Muslim Brotherhood's ultimate goal to replace the U.S. Constitution with Shariah law:


The Muslim Brotherhood investment in corporate America will be used to pressure U.S. companies into compliance with Islamic principles.

The book also shows radical Muslims in the U.S. are working to support Palestinian terrorists, destroy Israel, gut U.S. anti-terrorism laws, loosen U.S. Muslim immigration policies and convert Americans to Islam.

The authors explain they targeted CAIR because it helps control the "religious crime syndicate from its power base in Washington, the capitol of the same government it wishes to overthrow."

While the FBI has cut formal ties to CAIR in the wake of its designation as an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to fund the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, the group has virtually unfettered access to Capitol Hill and continues to wield influence in the White House.

Certificate signed by Nihad Awad and awarded to Chris Gaubatz for completing his internship

CAIR, the book reveals, regularly reserves meeting rooms and prays Fridays alongside Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., and a growing number of Muslim staffers.

The first Muslim elected to Congress and a de facto CAIR board member, Ellison predicted in one CAIR power breakfast he soon would be flanked by 15 other Muslim congressmen, "Muslim Mafia" notes.

Chris Gaubatz, in fact, once found himself praying elbow-to-elbow with Ellison during a Friday prayer gathering attended by CAIR inside the U.S. Capitol.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the book says, is totally in the dark about the threat, and so is the White House.

ASTONISHING

Post  Admin on Tue 13 Oct 2009, 10:34 am

ASTONISHING

Did you realize that "The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with sharia compliance”?

That’s right, according to Dalia Mogahed, President Obama’s advisor on Muslim affairs, who made this astonishing statement in an
interview on a
British television show

(see story below).


Mogahed has made news before.

She was a member of the U.S. Muslim Engagement Project, which called for “engagement” with the Muslim Brotherhood — the organization that has a 100 year plan for subverting and overthrowing the West.

She teamed up with John Esposito to conduct a poll on Islam, then misrepresented some of the results (some called it “cooking the books”) in order to increase the number of Muslim “moderates.”

What makes Mogahed’s demonstrably untrue assertion about shariah even more disturbing is that she made it in an interview hosted by a member of the radical Islamist organization Hizb ut Tahrir.

Hizb ut Tahrir is committed to the overthrow of democracy and capitalism and the worldwide imposition of shariah Islamic law. The organization has been banned as a terrorist organization in several countries — but remarkably, not here in the United States.

For Mogahed to assert that shariah promotes “gender justice” would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic.

That she has the ear of the White House is yet another chilling reminder of how our nation is being led down the path of forced Islamification that England and Western Europe have already walked.

This is another reason why, over the past few weeks, we have been issuing such an urgent call to action to you, our members. If you have not yet responded to our fall “Call to Action,” there’s still time to help us reach our goal.

There are ample signs that a large percentage of the American people, once adequately informed about the multiple threats of radical Islam, don’t want an America that looks like England.

Help us reach them. Help us educate them. Help us mobilize them. There is time — but we don’t have ten or fifteen years. We need to act NOW, as if our very future depends on it — because it does.

Barack Obama adviser says Sharia Law is misunderstood

By Andrew Gilligan and Alex Spillius in Washington
Published: 8:00PM BST 08 Oct 2009

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/barackobama/
6274387/Obama-adviser-says-Sharia-Law-is-misunderstood.html

President Barack Obama's adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law.

Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President's Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was "oversimplified" and the majority of women around the world associate it with "gender justice".

The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.

The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world.

Miss Mogahed appeared alongside Hizb ut Tahrir's national women's officer, Nazreen Nawaz.

During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular "man-made law" and the West's "lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism".

They called for Sharia Law to be "the source of legislation" and said that women should not be "permitted to hold a position of leadership in government".

Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that "promiscuity" and the "breakdown of traditional values" were what Muslims admired least about the West.

She said: "I think the reason so many women support Sharia is because they have a very different understanding of sharia than the common perception in Western media.

"The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with sharia compliance.

"The portrayal of Sharia has been oversimplified in many cases."

Sharia in its broadest sense is a religious code for living, which decrees such matters as fasting and dressing modestly. However, it has also been interpreted as requiring the separation of men and women.

It also includes the controversial "Hadd offences", crimes with specific penalties set by the Koran and the sayings of the prophet Mohammed. These include death by stoning for adultery and homosexuality and the removal of a hand for theft.

Miss Mogahed admitted that even many Muslims associated Sharia with "maximum criminal punishments" and "laws that... to many people seem unequal to women," but added: "Part of the reason that there is this perception of Sharia is because Sharia is not well understood and Islam as a faith is not well understood."

The video of the broadcast has now been prominently posted on the front page of Hizb ut Tahrir's website.

Miss Mogahed, who was born in Egypt and moved to America at the age of five, is the first veiled Muslim woman to serve in the White House. Her appointment was seen as a sign of the Obama administration's determination to reach out to the Muslim world.

She is also the executive director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, a project which aims to scientifically sample public opinion in the Muslim world.

During this week's broadcast, she described her White House role as "to convey... to the President and other public officials what it is Muslims want."

Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, said Miss Mogahed was “downplaying” Sharia Law.

“There is a reason sharia has got a bad name and it is how it has been exercised. Regrettably in the US there have been acts of injustice perpetrated against women that are driven by the Sharia-type mindset that women are objects not human beings,” she said.

She cited the example of Muzzammil Hassan, a Buffalo man who ran a cable channel aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes and was charged earlier this year with beheading his wife after she filed for divorce.

“Americans understand by example, it’s not as if we are an ignorant mass of people. Just as we don’t broad brush all Muslims, so should Dalia not downplay the serious nature of sharia law.”

There Are Those in Congress Who “Get It”

Eleven days ago Rep. Sue Myrick, co-chair of the U.S. House of Representatives Anti-Terrorism Caucus, put out the release below, connecting the dots between the spate of recently-foiled terrorist plots.

Rep. Myrick is one of many in the House and Senate who do in fact “get it.” Thanks to Lisa Piraneo, our Director of Government Relations on Capitol Hill, we are in regular communication with such Members in both the House and the Senate — as well as working hard to educate other Members.

In fact, yesterday and today Lisa has been coordinating briefings on the shariah finance issue with numerous congressional staff. These briefings are being presented by Joy Brighton, our shariah finance expert and the person you see on several of the shariah finance videos (www.actforamerica.org/stopshariahnow).

Briefing congressional staff is a vitally important educational tactic in our ongoing efforts to advance legislation in Congress that pushes back against radical Islam. This, and our many other efforts being orchestrated by Lisa on Capitol Hill, are possible because early this year many of you made contributions and/or became Patriot Partners.

As you know, Brigitte Gabriel launched a fall “Call to Action” campaign a few weeks ago. One week ago we were 60% of the way to our goal of 750 new Patriot Partners and Contributing Members.

We’re delighted to report that we are now 76% of the way to our goal!

If you haven’t yet responded, you can help us reach this goal. Please click here if you would like to sign up as a monthly contributing Patriot Partner. We need you!

If you would like to become a Contributing Member by making a one-time contribution online, please click here. If you would prefer to make a one-time contribution with a check, please click here to print out a reply form.

Back in January, Rep. Myrick sent us a letter commending ACT! for America. In it she wrote:

Thanks to Brigitte Gabriel and ACT! for America, our country has a greater chance of winning the battle against the rising tide of radical Islamists. My staff and I are honored to work with ACT! for America to achieve our mutual goals, and it is my hope that more citizens will join them in protecting the values and traditions of our country.

It is with the help of thousands of our members, who have become Patriot Partners or Contributing Members, that we are making this kind of impact in Congress.

Please help us reach our fall “Call to Action” campaign goal by signing up as a Patriot Partner or Contributing Member today!

Thank you!

Public Press Release September 25, 2009
Website link: http://www.myrick.house.gov/Connect%20The%20Dots.shtml


Rep. Myrick Connects the Dots of the Recent US Terror Plots

“There is no current evidence that materially connects any of the terror plots recently revealed. However, I have taken sentences directly from FBI press releases, and FBI investigative documents, and highlighted the clear connection below. These plots are all tied together by one thing: a global ideology that is self-identified by its believers as jihadist, or “jihadiyya”. It is hard to ignore this fact when in these cases below several of these men very clearly, and very directly, state that they followed this ideology (jihad), and wanted to kill.

I find this connection disturbing seeing as these plots come on the heels of the Administration's efforts to rename 'jihadists' - which is what they call themselves - 'violent extremists'."

The Absence of Strategic Thinking

Dear Elaine,

When media and political “talking heads” contended there was no “connection” between the recent spate of foiled terrorist plots on American soil, we were witnessing an absence of strategic thinking.

They simply weren’t analyzing the ideological force of jihadist Islam that IS the connection between the terrorist plots.

When media and political “talking heads,” in concert with the Obama administration, assert that Russia can be persuaded to support significantly tougher sanctions against Iran, we are again witnessing an absence of strategic thinking.

In both cases, it is the failure to see events and understand motivations through a lens other than our own.

The Iranian “mullocracy” is motivated by a messianic ambition to usher in the 12th imam through creating global chaos and by a desire to assert itself as the focal point of worldwide Islam. How does the “infidel” West hope to negotiate with that?

Ralph Peters makes a good case below for why Vladimir Putin does not see imposing tougher sanctions as in Russia’s self-interest, self-interest defined as Russia’s drive to exert greater control of oil and natural gas. In other words, a drive for greater power.

Putin could care less about Iran’s theo-political motivations, and deep down Iran despises “infidel” Russia. But, as the saying goes, “politics makes for strange bedfellows.”

Putin's Iran plan

By RALPH PETERS

Iran's traditional emblem has been the Persian lion. Russia's should be a vulture: Prime Minister Vladimir Putin intends to feed on the carcass left by any confrontation with Iran.

For Moscow, this crisis isn't about Tehran's acquisition of nukes. It's about Russia's acquisition of a stranglehold on global energy markets.

Putin's playing with fire -- but he's sure we'll be the ones burned.

As for the Obama administration's desperate (and stunningly naive) hope that economic sanctions can deter President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad and his fellow thugs-for-Allah from pursuing nuclear weapons, forget it.

Even were Putin to permit his front-man, President Dmitri Medvedev, to agree to half-baked sanctions, Moscow would violate them before Obama could step out of Air Force One with a piece of paper in his hand guaranteeing peace in our time.

The current crisis is a win-win-win for Putin. But before laying out his plan, let's run the numbers:

The Persian Gulf's littoral states hold over 60 percent of the world's proven oil reserves and 40 percent of the natural gas. Russia has "just" 10 percent of the oil reserves and 35 percent of the world's natural gas.

Do the math: Iran and its neighbors, along with Russia, own two-thirds of the world's oil reserves and 70 percent of the natural gas. And the global economy still runs on oil and gas, folks.

Despite the State Department's compartmentalization mentality, Russia and Iran don't exist in separate worlds. It's less than a day's drive from Russia's southern border through Azerbaijan to Iran's northwestern border. I've driven it.

This is one macro-region for energy, the zone of ultimate control. Putin gets it, even if we don't. Here's Czar Vladimir's strategic trifecta:

* For now, Russia profits wonderfully from its trade, both legal and illicit, with Iran, while the West talks itself to death. Life is good.

* But life could get even better: If Iran's nuclear quest isn't blocked, a nuclear arsenal will give Iran de facto control of all Persian Gulf oil. Putin envisions a Moscow-Tehran axis, an energy cartel that dramatically increases the value of his oil and gas -- the only economic props keeping the corpse of Russia upright.

* If Israel's driven to a forlorn-hope attack on Iran's nuke program, Iran will respond by striking Gulf Arab oil fields and facilities, while closing the Strait of Hormuz. The US military will be in it, like it or not. Oil and gas prices will soar unimaginably -- and the bear will have its paws on the golden tap.

So the worst outcome for Putin -- more of the same -- is still good. A bad outcome for everybody else is even better in Putin's strategy to renew Russia's superpower status.

Why on earth would this guy help us stop Iran? When he hates us, anyway? (It isn't you, Barack. It's just business.)

For all his viciousness, Putin's a serious strategist. We don't have any high-level strategists. Not one. On either side of the Potomac.

In his first decade on the throne, Czar Vladimir focused on addicting Europe to Russian gas, while moving successfully to exert control over as many pipelines as possible. That was the constructive decade.

The second decade in the reign of Vladimir I is the energy-cartel-building phase. This will be the confrontational phase.

Energy's the only real power Putin has, so he's maximizing it.

It's no accident that a strategic triangle has emerged between Moscow, Tehran and Caracas -- home of the great Latin mischief-lover, Hugo Chavez, who thrives on his own nation's petro-wealth.

For us, the Iran crisis is about peace. For Putin, it's about power. Yet the self-deluding Obama administration really believes that Moscow's going to support us. After our president gave away our only serious bargaining chip, the missile-defense system promised to our European allies.

Putin thinks in 10-year-plans. We can't think past the next congressional roll-call vote.

The Obama administration's primary legacy to the world is going to be a nuclear-armed Iran.

Is There a Tide Beginning to Turn?

Dear Elaine,

Those of us who understand how real and dangerous the threat of radical Islam is to our country sometimes feel frustrated when we don’t understand why other people don’t seem to be concerned about this issue or even recognize it’s a threat.

We wonder why, only eight years after 9/11, it seems that so many appear disinterested in knowing why the attacks occurred and why the threat looms even larger today than it did then.

Polls have born this out. For the past couple of years, the issue of national security and the war on terrorism has steadily dropped as a concern among Americans. Not surprisingly, issues like the economy and health care, which affect people daily in a very personal way and which have dominated the news, have rocketed to the top of the list of issues people are concerned about.

But results from two polls this week reveal a small but recognizable shift in public opinion is taking place. This is almost certainly a consequence of the recent spate of foiled terrorist plots and the looming specter of a nuclear weaponized Iran may be impacting public opinion.

Indeed, had there been more news coverage of these plots (how many people heard about the one in Springfield, Illinois?), public opinion might be shifting even more.

A Rasmussen poll completed just last week showed that the issue of national security/war on terrorism was now the fourth highest concern among respondents out of a list of ten issues, jumping six percentage points.

Yesterday, Fox News reported the results of a just-completed poll that found 61% of Americans support military action against Iran and 69% do not believe President Obama is being tough enough in dealing with Iran.

It would appear that people are beginning to pay a little more attention to the issue of national security. This may only be a temporary phenomenon, but it is an opportunity for us to take action and reach out to others during a time of heightened awareness and concern.

A few weeks ago we launched our “Stop Shariah” project. If you haven’t already done so, we strongly encourage you to log on to www.actforamerica.org/stopshariahnow. Forward the link to others and encourage them to log on as well.

When you log on, you’ll find a wealth of information, resources, pictures and videos. We especially recommend you watch the Joy Brighton videos, the first of which is on the right of the landing page when you log on.

Another important feature of this project is our “Stop Shariah” grassroots lobbying effort. ACT! for America chapter leaders have already been provided an instructional packet and important resources for reaching out to local elected officials in their area.

The objective: To inform such officials about the threat of shariah-compliant finance, its connection to jihad and terrorism, and to provide them with a sample ordinance they can use to fight back against this threat.

You, too, can find out more about this grassroots lobbying effort byclicking here . If you know a school board member, city council member, or county commissioner, we urge you to check out the resources and sample ordinance and explore how you can join us in fighting back against shariah law and shariah finance.

Elected officials are likely more concerned about the issue of terrorism than they were a few months ago, given the succession of recent foiled terrorist plots. Now is a good time to reach out to them.

Another thing you can do is sign up to attend our October 10th webcast of the Citizens in Action conference. For more information click HERE

During times of heightened public awareness each and every one of us can do something to push back against the threat of radical Islam. We offer numerous ways in which each of us can take action, whether as Patriot Partner, Contributing Member, chapter leader, or getting involved in grassroots activities like our Stop Shariah project.

Prior to launching ACT! for America, Brigitte Gabriel would hear everywhere she went, and receive all kinds of emails, from people asking “what can we do?”

As you can see, there is no shortage of actions we have made available to every ACT! for America member. There literally is something for everyone. What can you do this month.

ANOTHER Terror Plot Foiled

Dear Elaine,

Our friend and esteemed colleague Dr. Walid Phares comments below on the unprecedented acceleration of jihadist terror plots we have seen in the past few weeks, the latest in Springfield, Illinois.

Dr. Phares will be presenting a session entitled “The Ideology and Strategies of Global Jihad” at the American Congress for Truth national conference webcast on November 7th.

This conference, entitled “Radical Islam’s Threat to America,” is available FREE of charge to all elected officials, their staffs, and members of ACT! for America and American Congress for Truth. Log on to Arrow www.actforamerica.org
to find out more information and how you can participate.

And please pass the word about the conference to every elected official you know.

As we noted last week, we believe there is a correlation between the Obama administration’s accelerated “outreach” effort to the Muslim world and the increase in terrorist plots. Within the world of jihadist Islam such efforts are viewed as weakness. They reinforce the supremacist political ideology shared by jihadists and, in doing so, embolden them.

What’s more, these efforts send a message to the so-called “moderate” Muslims that the “strong horse” (to quote Osama bin Laden) they should get behind is, indeed, the jihadists.

As we have stated again and again, for years now, a strategy of apology, appeasement and accommodation will not douse the flames of radical Islam. It only pours gas on those flames.

Warning:

The Jihadists are mushrooming inside America

Walid Phares

It is unprecedented in American counter terrorism annals: in one day the nation was dealing with three separate Jihadist plots to blow up civilian and other targets inside the Homeland. Although the cases were addressed at different time periods by the FBI and other agencies, nevertheless, the thickening web of Terror attempts breached the crossing line of US national security. This week, authorities revealed three conspiracies by American Jihadists: Michael C. Finton, a 29-year-old man who wished to follow the steps of American-born Taliban John Walker Lindh, was arrested after trying to detonate what he thought was a bomb inside a van outside a federal courthouse in Springfield, Ill. Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, a 19-year old Jordanian national was arrested after placing what he believed was a bomb at a downtown Dallas skyscraper. But perhaps the most troubling case is of Afghan-born Najibullah Zazi who set up shop in suburban Denver, scouting the Web and visiting beauty supply stores in a hunt for chemicals needed to build bombs for Al Qaeda. Sources called the alleged plot one of the most significant terror threats to the U.S. since 9-11. Add to the list the North Carolina Jihad cell, led by Saifullah Boyd, which was planning on attacking civilian and military targets across the country.

The immediate question raised by an increasingly worried public is about the connection between all these terror cases: are they all connected? While law enforcement and certainly judicial authorities proceed in a bottom up reasoning, that is to build the case for a global connection between all what is happening with the help of legal evidence, analysts in the field of counter terrorism and conflict are already realizing the meaning of what is happening inside America. In my book Future Jihad: Terrorist Strategies against America (2005-2006) I clearly projected that Jihadists, individuals and cells will be mushrooming and expanding inside the United States within few years from then and that they will precisely do what they are trying to do now. I have also projected how large they will become, with time. It was a simple deduction: if the Government doesn’t counter this ideological growth, Jihadists will keep coming. And in fact they kept coming, spreading crossing the barriers of ethnicities, races, nationalities and geographical frontiers. The Jihadists committed to harm the US, and based inside our borders, are now by the hundreds. When I suggested this fact on CNN in 2006, and reiterated it on Oprah’s show so that the public realizes what is to come, I raised a few eyes brows. Now unfortunately, we are meeting the cells of Jihadism in our cities and little towns, and sadly the expectation is that we will see more, and we may unfortunately not be able to stop them all from reaching their goals.

The North Carolina cell, the New York subway plot, the Dallas attempt, the Illinois case, added to the previous cases of the shooting of a soldier in Arkansas, the precedent New York cells, Georgia’s young Jihadists, all the way back to the infamous Virginia paintball network, if anything gives us the genome of what is morphing inside the country -- a vast body of dispersed cells with at least one binding force -- the Jihadi ideology. The question thus is to find out who is propagating the doctrines of Jihadism: who is funding it; who is protecting the indoctrination operation which leads naturally to the rise of homegrown or foreign linked, lone wolves or packs of Jihadists, Terrorists. That is the real question: where is the factory?

What should the US Government do? Well, it must first of all come to the front of the threat and lead the nation against it. This is not a matter of only local police or law enforcement efforts. President Obama and Congressional leaders from both parties must give this spreading plague a top priority: for if one of these groups is successful, our national economy will crumble again, or at least will be wounded even more severely, let alone the human consequences of terror. Americans are watching with great concerns, these terror plots being revealed. They expect their elected officials to address these fears before the worse happens.

Stadiums, Hotels Warned of Terrorists

Dear Elaine,

In the wake of the continuing story about the New York and Denver terrorist cells, federal authorities are issuing heightened security alerts (see story below) in what a USA Today front page article yesterday called “an unusual flurry of bulletins.”

Meanwhile, it is illuminating that this year, in the midst of repeated White House olive branches and apologies extended to the Muslim world, we are witnessing an apparent increase in homegrown potential terror.

In the eight years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, 113 homegrown jihadists have been arrested in America — with 40 arrested this year alone! In other words, prior to this year, an average of 10 homegrown jihadists were arrested each year. We’re barely ¾ of the way through 2009 and we’ve already seen four times that many homegrown jihadists arrested.

Is this just a case of better enforcement? Or is it an increase in terrorist cells and potential terrorists? We believe it’s the latter.

We’ve seen this phenomenon before. In Britain, after years of “outreach” and accommodations to Muslim demands (including the official sanction of shariah courts), terrorist threats have increased, not decreased.

In other words, attempting to fight a “war on terror,” while capitulating to the ideology behind the terror, is a losing strategy. We can help fight the war against Islamic terrorism by pushing back against this failed strategy — which is precisely what we are doing in ACT! for America.

Last week Brigitte Gabriel sent out three “call to action” emails. One of the goals of this fall 2009 “call to action” campaign is that 750 of our members respond either by signing up to be a Patriot Partner or becoming a Contributing Member by making a one-time contribution.

To date we are 50% of the way to our goal. If you have not already responded, you can help us reach our goal by clicking here to become a Patriot Partner or clicking here to make a one-time contribution online. (If you prefer to mail a contribution, please click here to print out a reply form).

Since 1970, nearly 50,000 separate acts of terrorism have been committed worldwide by Islamists. Help us continue our effort to educate America that this is not a coincidence — that the supremacist, jihadist ideology embedded in Islam predictably produces violence!

Thank you!

Stadiums, Hotels Warned of Terrorists

By DEVLIN BARRETT and EILEEN SULLIVAN

AP

DENVER (Sept. 22) — Counterterrorism officials have issued security bulletins to police around the nation about terrorists' desire to attack stadiums, entertainment complexes and hotels — the latest in a flurry of such internal warnings as investigators chase a possible bomb plot in Denver and New York.

In the two bulletins – sent to police departments Monday and obtained by The Associated Press – officials said they know of no specific plots against such sites, but urged law enforcement and private companies to be vigilant. These two bulletins followed on the heels of a similar warning about the vulnerabilities of mass transit systems.

The bulletin on stadiums notes that an al-Qaida training manual specifically lists "blasting and destroying the places of amusement, immorality, and sin... and attacking vital economic centers" as desired targets of the global terror network.

A joint statement from DHS and FBI said while the agencies "have no information regarding the timing, location or target of any planned attack, we believe it is prudent to raise the security awareness of our local law enforcement partners regarding the targets and tactics of previous terrorist activity."

Kiichiro Sato, AP


A bulletin issued about possible terrorist plots notes that an al-Qaida manual calls for "blasting and destroying the places of amusement, immorality, and sin." That, authorities said, would include stadiums, like Chicago's Soldier Field, seen here on Sunday.


Officials noted the law enforcement bulletins are not intended for the public. Bulletins – particularly about hotels as possible targets – are common, and often don't make news. However, a half-dozen alerts issued in the last week have received increased attention amid the ongoing investigations in New York and Denver. The first of these, about hydrogen peroxide-based explosives, specifically referred to the investigation in New York.

Separately, law enforcement officials said a Colorado man may have been planning with others to detonate backpack bombs on New York City trains in a terrorism plot similar to past attacks on London's and Madrid's mass-transit systems.

The investigation and the earlier warning about mass transit system have already prompted officials around the nation to step up patrols.

Two law enforcement officials speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss details of the investigation told The Associated Press late Monday that more than a half-dozen individuals were being scrutinized in the alleged plot.

In a statement, the FBI says that "several individuals in the United States, Pakistan and elsewhere" are being investigated.

Investigators say Najibullah Zazi, a 24-year-old Afghanistan-born immigrant who is a shuttle van driver at the Denver airport, played a direct role in the terror plot that unraveled after an overnight 1,600-mile trip from Denver to New York City around the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. He made his first court appearance Monday and remains behind bars.

Zazi and two other defendants have not been charged with any terrorism counts, only the relatively minor offense of lying to the government. But the case could grow to include more serious charges as the investigation proceeds.

Backpacks and cell phones were seized last week from apartments in Queens, where Zazi visited.

Zazi has publicly denied being involved in a terror plot, and defense lawyer Arthur Folsom dismissed as "rumor" any notion that his client played a crucial role.

Publicly, law enforcement officials have repeatedly said they are unaware of a specific time or target for any attacks. Privately, officials speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case said investigators have worried most about the possible use of backpack bombs on New York City trains, similar to attacks carried out in London in 2005 and Madrid in 2004.

Backpack bombs ripped apart four commuter trains and killed 191 people in Madrid on March 11, 2004. On July 7 the next year, bombing attacks in London killed 52 subway and bus commuters.

In a bulletin issued Friday, the FBI and Homeland Security Department warned that improvised explosive devices are the most common tactic to blow up railroads and other mass transit systems overseas. And they noted incidents in which bombs were made with peroxide.

In that bulletin, obtained by The AP, officials recommended that transit systems conduct random sweeps at terminals and stations and that law enforcement make random patrols and board some trains and buses.

Investigators feared Zazi may have been involved in a potential plot involving hydrogen peroxide-based explosives, according to two law enforcement officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation.

The FBI said they found notes on bomb-making instructions that appear to match Zazi's handwriting, and discovered his fingerprints on materials – batteries and a scale – that could be used to make explosives. He also made a trip to Pakistan last year in which he received al-Qaida explosives and weapons training, the government said.

Zazi, a legal resident of the U.S. who immigrated in 1999, told the FBI that he must have unintentionally downloaded the notes on bomb-making as part of a religious book and that he deleted the book "after realizing that its contents discussed jihad."

A strange sequence of events began to unfold nearly two weeks ago when Zazi – already under surveillance by federal agents – rented a car in Colorado and made the 1,600-mile trek across the heartland to New York. He told reporters that he went to New York to resolve an issue with a coffee cart he owned.

He went to his friend's place in Queens. Once there, his car was towed and authorities confiscated his computer. He was told by an NYPD informant that detectives were asking about him, and decided to cut the trip short and fly back to Colorado, authorities said.

Their surveillance blown and their main suspect flying back to Colorado, officials speeded up the investigation and launched raids on several Queens apartments in a search for explosives, but found none.

Zazi and his 53-year-old father, Mohammed Wali Zazi, were arrested Saturday in Denver. Ahmad Wais Afzali, 37, was arrested in New York, where he is an imam at a mosque in Queens. The three are accused of making false statements to the government. If convicted, they face eight years in prison.

Associated Press Writers Ivan Moreno, P. Solomon Banda, and Catherine Tsai in Denver, and Tom Hays in New York contributed to this report.

Announcing “Radical Islam’s Threat to America”
A FREE Webcast Conference

by Brigitte Gabriel


Dear Elaine,

I’m delighted to announce American Congress for Truth’s inaugural live webcast conference for elected officials and staff, entitled “Radical Islam’s Threat to America.”

The webcast conference will take place on Saturday, November 7, 2009, from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., with an hour break for lunch.

This conference is FREE of charge and open to all local, state and federal elected officials and their staffs. It is also open, free of charge, to members of American Congress for Truth and its “sister” organization, ACT! for America.

To log on to view the conference, click on the following link anytime between 9:50 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Eastern Time on November 7th:

Logon link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/radical-islam-s-threat-to-america

Anyone who can watch a YouTube video on their computer can watch this webcast.

We in American Congress for Truth, the education and research organization I founded in 2002, have been working for months to launch this very important conference. Elected officials and their staffs, at all levels of government, need to understand the relationship between the supremacist political ideology embedded within Islam and the advance of jihad.

They also need to understand the many ways in which jihad is being carried out against the United States, from violent jihad to “stealth” jihad to the advance of creeping shariah Islamic law into our society.

School board members need to understand how Islamists are distorting the history and doctrines of Islam in public school textbooks.

City Council and County Commission members need to understand how Islamists are suing local jurisdictions to demand excessive rights (such as the Muslim policewoman in Philadelphia who sued for the right to wear her hijab as part of her uniform).

State legislators, statewide elected officials, and federal officials need to understand how Islamists are pressing for the institution of shariah courts here in America – where aspects of shariah Islamic law, which are incompatible with American civil rights constitutional guarantees and statutes – will be implemented.

I urge you to pass this information along to every elected official you know. Encourage them to mark their calendars for November 7th and log on for this FREE webcast.

Topics include:

A Basic History of Islam, which I will teach.

The ideology and strategies of global jihad, taught by renowned terrorism expert Walid Phares, author of several books including Future Jihad.

Shariah Islamic law, taught by Nonie Darwish, a native of Egypt who lived under shariah law and who is the author of Cruel and Usual Punishment.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s plan to subvert America, taught by former top FBI agent John Guandolo, who advises governments on the threat of the Global Islamist Movement.

Islamist organizations operating in the U.S., taught by Frank Gaffney, former Defense Department official and President of The Center for Security Policy.

Shariah finance, taught by Joy Brighton, Columbia MBA, former Wall Street trader, and ACT! for America fellow on shariah finance.

Strategies and tactics for resisting the advance of radical Islam, taught by American Congress for Truth and ACT! for America Executive Director Guy Rodgers.

This conference is a groundbreaking event, a first of its kind, that I am confident will be looked back on as an event that helped change the course of America’s struggle with radical Islam.

So spread the word! And remember, as an American Congress for Truth and ACT! for America member, you are welcome to log on to view the conference, FREE of charge, as well!

Always devoted,



Brigitte Gabriel

In case you missed this important email (below) from Brigitte Gabriel we sent yesterday, we are sending it out again today. Here’s an email we received from one of our members in response to yesterday’s email:

I am proud to support ACT for America on a monthly basis. You are doing a great job. Stop Shariah Now is a great site. After watching several of the videos and reading some of the articles I got pumped up and had to send the following to 50 people on my e-mail list.

Best regards,

Don


The Danger of Islam

On Friday we remember 9/11, 2001, a day that will live in infamy. That was the day that the United States was viscously and without provocation attached by Radical Islam as they crashed two airplanes into the World Trade Center killing over 3,000 people. Even though there have been no attacks since 9/11, Radial Islam is hard at work to take over our country and establish Shariah Islamic Law. It behooves us all to understand how Shariah Islamic Law will destroy our democracy, our liberties, our free speech, and bring daily terror.

The link below will take you to a site with a video that explain Shariah Islamic Finance and how many Wall Street banks and AIG are helping to finance Islamic Terrorism. You will also learn that our government is doing nothing to stop it. The 2nd video, which starts right after the 1st video, explains what Islam is and how it takes over a country. Watch both videos to be informed.



Announcing the Launch of “Stop Shariah Now!”

A Special Project of ACT! for America

by Brigitte Gabriel

Dear Elaine,

I’m delighted to announce the launch of ACT! for America’s new project, “Stop Shariah Now!”

Stop Shariah Now will be an ongoing educational, public relations, and grassroots lobbying effort designed to…

Significantly increase public awareness of the threat of creeping Islamic law called “Shariah” into America, and…


Win support for public policies that address this threat.

Here’s what you can do to learn more about creeping Shariah Islamic law’s threat to America and actions you can take to help us push back against it.

Click here to view a 6 minute video overview of Shariah Islamic law, narrated by our former Wall Street trader and Shariah analyst, Joy Brighton. Among other things you’ll learn that many on Wall Street AND al Qaeda are both pushing for Shariah finance. Shouldn’t that be a tip-off that something’s wrong?

Log on to www.actforamerica.org and click on the “Stop Shariah Now Project” on the upper right of the home page. Hundreds of hours of work have gone into the creation and design of this online “Stop Shariah” resource! As far as we can tell there is no other resource like it online.

Once there you can find information on everything from Shariah finance to Shariah Islamic law and its relationship to Jihad. Browse news articles, videos, pictures, a resource library, and a map showing the global impact of Shariah Islamic law.


Find out how you can get involved in our grassroots “Stop Shariah” project. Log on to www.actforamerica.org and click the “Stop Shariah Now” tab at the upper right. When you arrive on the “Stop Shariah Now” landing page, click on the “Stop Shariah Project” in the Navigation bar on the left side of the page.

We will also be engaging our chapter leaders through conference calls and special email alerts in an aggressive, proactive effort to reach out to local elected officials. If you would like to start a chapter and get involved in this effort, click here.

Tomorrow we are going to be remembering the tragic attacks on America which took place 8 years ago on 9/11. We will be honoring the memory of those innocent civilians who lost their lives in that attack. We at ACT! for America are committed to educating and mobilizing the nation to understand the ideology of the attackers and the threat of that ideology and its law called Shariah, which inspired the 19 hijackers to carry out their attacks against America.

I know that you have many friends and family members who do not know what Shariah Islamic law is. This is an ideal opportunity to educate them! Pass on this email and encourage them to check out the “Stop Shariah Now” page to learn about this insidious threat to our security, our liberties, and our cherished democratic values.

Always devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel
