The Video Facebook Doesn’t Want You to See


 

Brigitte Gabriel posted a roughly two-minute video on Facebook sharing statistics on the HUGE amount of taxpayer money spent on illegal immigrants. Facebook removed her video claiming it violated community guidelines. Here is the Gabriel email informing readers of Facebook censorship.

Last Thursday I shared a 2 minute video on Facebook with my thoughts on criminal aliens entering this country. I ran through a number of troubling statistics about the financial strain criminal aliens have on our economy as a whole. I also talked about how I felt as a legal immigrant who spent years – and thousands of dollars – immigrating here the right way.

 

Unfortunately, Friday night Facebook decided my video did not meet their “community standards” and they took my video down right as it was approaching 500,000 views. We have yet to receive a detailed explanation on why my video did not meet their “community standards” but you can view my video on YouTube and decide for yourself by clicking below:

Watch ACT for America Founder, Brigitte Gabriel, talk about illegal immigration.

 

http://www.actforamerica.org]

 

I can assure you of this: Facebook and their politically correct policies will NOT slow me down. I will continue to speak my mind and publish videos on a regular basis. If anything, this blatant form of censorship has inspired me to take my efforts online to the next level. This is why ACT for America is in the process of launching our very own Social Media War Room. This “War Room” will have the staff and technology to rapidly respond to the leftist narratives that are constantly dominating social media – and to effectively navigate every attempt they make to eliminate our freedom of speech.

 

A perfect example of why this new project is critical is the current immigration issue. Millions of Americans have now been incorrectly led to believe that President Trump is permanently separating children from the families of those who illegally cross our southern border. With a funded and staffed social media war room, we can push back on fake news narratives like this one that has dominated the news cycle for the last week. With your help this project can come to fruition.

 

 

A donation of $5 will help us spread the truth about any given issue to 500 people.

 

A donation of $25 will help us introduce ACT for America to 250 new Americans.

 

A donation of $50 will help us recruit 25 brand new activists to join ACT for America.

 

A donation of $100 will help us reach 500,000 views on any given ACT for America video.

 

Please help us utilize social media to reach millions of Americans every single month. In the era of fake news, we must do everything we can to combat the left’s stranglehold on the internet.

 

Always Devoted,

About Brigitte Gabriel

 

Lady Brigitte Gabriel started ACT for America in an effort to protect the citizens of the United States from the horrors she experienced as a young girl in her native Lebanon. When Ms. Gabriel was 10 years old militant radical Islamists launched rockets into her family’s home in their Christian town in southern Lebanon destroying her home and seriously injuring her as they raged war against the “infidels.” Her family was forced to seek refuge in an underground 8 x 10- foot bomb shelter where they lived for the next seven years. Often surviving on mere weeds, they had to crawl through a ditch to get water from a nearby spring while avoiding Islamic snipers.

 

After several perilous years, Ms. Gabriel moved to Israel before subsequently becoming a proud citizen of the greatest nation on earth; the United States of America. Today, she is the one of the leading terrorism experts in the world, providing information and analysis on the rise of global Islamic terrorism. She lectures nationally and internationally about terrorism and current affairs.

 

She has addressed the United Nations, the Australian Prime Minister, members of The British Parliament/House of Commons, Members of the United States Congress, top-ranked Pentagon officials, The Joint Forces Staff College, The US Special Operations Command, The US Asymmetric Warfare group, the FBI, and many others. The top General for the Israel Defense Forces nicknamed Brigitte “The Iron Women”. In addition, she is a regular guest analyst on Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC, and various radio stations daily across America. She serves on the board of advisors of the Intelligence Summit.

 

In addition to serving as the Founder and Chairman of ACT for America, she is a celebrated author of READ THE REST

 

SPLC Hates Free Speech


The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) [See Also DTN] might as well be the chief propaganda machine for all things Leftist/Marxist in America. Not only does the SPLC target fringe groups (e.g. KKK, Neo-Nazis, Aryans, Christian Identity, etc.), but they seek to smear traditional Christian/American values organizations.

 

The SPLC has placed many good and non-violent organizations on a hate list being falsely accused of racism and bigotry while giving a pass to Leftist fringe groups. Bill Warner is one of those targeted by the SPLC. The SPLC would label Warner an Islamophobe racist merely because he shares the truth about Islam.

 

Here, Warner pushes back.

SPLC Hates Free Speech

There was a time in America when freedom of speech was considered so basic that it was rarely talked about. Today “civil rights” organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are devoted to silencing the voices who insist on speaking their minds. The SPLC does not recognize honest differences of opinions, but instead, all who do not adhere to its leftist politics are called “racist-hater-bigot-Islamophobe”. That’s one word, mind you.

The SPLC has found fellow totalitarians in such groups as the Jewish Federation who have turned from tolerance of political differences to attempts to silence dissident voices to Islamic fundamentalists like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

 

As a dissident, I say give me your best shot. No amount of name calling can shut me up.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) came to my hometown at the invitation of the Jewish Federation. Now the SPLC is the supreme judge of social morality. The SPLC is the US hate monitor and is the basis for censorship by Twitter, Face Book, Google, and You Tube. I am a racist-hater-bigot- Islamophobe according to the SPLC because I talk about political Islam.

 

Part of the problem with the SPLC judgment or decree is that there is no due process or redress. There is no way to challenge them. Their purpose is to shame and drive their victims out of business.

 

The purpose of the SPLC is to censor all those who have different political ideas. They oppose free speech as hate speech. They reject fact based reasoning and critical thought. The Jewish Federation is a partner with these totalitarians. They are joined by the Christians who are apologists for Islam.

 

The SPLC, the Federation or the other apologists cannot stand a critical view of political Islam. Their only response is that critical thinkers are racist-hater-bigot Islamophobes. Knowledge is bigotry and denial is a virtue.

Political Islam About Page

 

What is Islam?

 

Islam is a cultural, religious and political system. Only the political system is of interest to kafirs (non-Muslims) since it determines how we are defined and treated. The Islamic political system is contained in the Koran, the Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed) and his biography, the Sira.

 

CSPI

 

Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI) is an educational organization dedicated to enlightening the general public about the doctrine of political Islam based on the works of Dr. Bill Warner.

 

Our Mission

 

Political Islam has subjugated other civilizations for 1400 years. Our mission is to educate the world about political Islam, its founder Mohammed, his political doctrine and his god, Allah.

 

The Five Principles

 

Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam.

 

All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—KoranSira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions).


Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology.

 

Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs.

 

Political Islam always has two different ways to treat kafirs—dualistic ethics. Kafirs can be abused in READ THE REST

 

Intro to Robert Spencer on Geert Wilders


John R. Houk, Editor

June 13, 2018

Most Americans are clueless about the enormous assault of European so-called democracies against any Free Speech exposing the god-awful crimes of Muslim immigrants, refugees and next-gen born Muslims perpetuated AGAINST the inherent non-Muslim citizens.

 

Why are Americans clueless? Because the American Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) is quite supportive of these Free Speech restrictions.

 

Why are European democracies restricting Free Speech? Because the idiocy of cultural Multicultural Diversity has capture the political elites running those nations. Muslim crimes therefore must be hidden from their European citizens to maintain the perversity that Islamic culture is compatible with the values of Western culture.

 

In Europe you can actually go to jail for exposing Muslim crimes to the public! The latest victim that I am aware of is Tommy Robinson. I wonder how many others have been jail or prosecuted for exposing the nature of Islamic culture?

 

Americans need to pay attention to what is occurring in Europe. American Leftists (i.e. Democrats) desire to follow the European Multiculturalist paradigm.

GEERT WILDERS PUTS THE POLITICAL ELITES ON NOTICE

The people are rising up. Can the elites put the genie back in the bottle?

 

By Robert Spencer

Geert Wilders – Photo by Jan Kranendonk

 

Geert Wilders spoke at a massive rally for Tommy Robinson on Saturday. 20,000 people came out to call for Tommy’s release, and Wilders took the opportunity to put the political elites of Britain and continental Europe on notice.

 

“Our governments,” Wilders declared, “sold us out with mass immigration. With Islamization. With open borders. We are almost foreigners in our own lands. And if we complain about it, they call us racists and Islamophobes. But I say, no more! And what do you say? No more! And that’s right: enough is enough. We will not be gagged anymore. No more tyranny.”

 

It was extraordinary that the British authorities allowed Wilders into the country at all. Several years ago he was banned from entering the country, but although the ban was reversed on appeal, the British government recently banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern and Lutz Bachmann from entering, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and thereby made it clear that it is more authoritarian and unwilling to uphold the freedom of speech than ever – at least when it comes to criticism of Islam, Muslim rape gangs, and mass Muslim migration.

 

Even worse, the bannings of Sellner, Pettibone, Southern, and Bachmann were just part of a long pattern. Pamela Geller and I were banned from entering Britain in 2013, apparently for life, also for the crime of telling the truth about Islam and jihad. Meanwhile, Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation. Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.

 

The UK Home Office also admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”

 

Theresa May’s relentlessly appeasement-minded government also admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country.

 

But now matters are coming to a head. Apparently British authorities decided that it would be too politically costly for them to bar Wilders again. And so he entered, and spoke, and gave them a strong dose of the reality that they are determined to ignore and deny.

 

Tommy Robinson is in prison today because he violated a court order demanding that he not film videos outside the trials of Muslim rape gangs. Clearly the government’s intent was to make sure that as few people as possible discovered the truth about its massive, years-long cover-up of those rape gangs, and refusal to prosecute the perpetrators. Theresa May and company obvious hope that other Britons who are furious about the sacrifice of thousands of British girls to the idols of “diversity” and “multiculturalism” will see what happened to Tommy, and be frightened into silence.

 

The British government, in imprisoning Tommy Robinson, has shown itself willing to incarcerate people for having opinions that it considers unacceptable. That heralds the death of Britain as a free society and the beginning of an authoritarian police state there, unless this slide to totalitarianism is stopped now. British public figures, whatever criticism they have leveled against Tommy Robinson in the past, should be calling for him to be freed today, or else they will be exposing themselves as supporting the degeneration of Britain into a police state.

 

Wilders addressed this endeavor head-on, declaring: “We will not be silenced. We will not be intimidated. And we tell the governments, we are not afraid of you. We will never surrender. We will stand strong and do our duty. We will defend our civilization. And we will protect our people.”

 

Wilders added: “And I tell you, to the governments. You can throw us in jail, but you will never defeat us. Because, my friends, for every Tommy whom you imprison, thousands will rise up. So take notice, Theresa May. Take notice, Dutch Prime Minister Rutte. Take notice, Mrs. Merkel or President Macron. Take notice: the future is ours and not yours. We will defeat you politically, because we, my friends, we are the people.”

 

If Wilders’ words don’t prove true, it will be because the death of free societies in Britain and Western Europe is truly at hand.

Europe Teaching Christianity in Schools to Combat Islamic Terrorism


A few European nations are finally comprehending just how dangerous the culture of Islam is to Western Civilization. Last week Austria gave the boot to Mosques that make no bones about following Muhammad’s agenda for global Islamization. Today I found out Denmark is making sure all refugees are going to be made to learn what it means to be a Dane or leave Denmark.

Danish Patriotism

 

After coming to the realization that second-generation Muslim immigrants are predisposed to committing horrific terrorist attacks on non-Muslims (especially women and children), the Danish government has come upon a novel solution: Why not try to assimilate the immigrants to Danish culture? Crazy, right?

 

Apparently the Danes have reached a conclusion that their soil is not magical and that just because a Muslim sets foot in Denmark and is given citizenship papers, it does not automatically transform them into a Dane with appreciation for Western civilization, democracy, and the moral restraint to not punch a woman in the face and call her a whore for wearing an ankle-revealing dress.

 

If only Congress would realize this about our non-magical soil in America! We know this sounds totally insane, but other nations actually do have these kooky ideas about immigration. Don’t believe us? Fly to Tokyo tomorrow and declare yourself to be Japanese. We’ll wait for you to report back with results!

 

Meanwhile, the Danish government will now require children in Muslim ghettos to undergo 25 hours of coursework on the meanings of Easter and Christmas, Christian morals, language skills and, presumably, the need to not murder members of your host community based on your parents’ barbaric 8th-century values. (Perhaps they should teach the Muslims about Denmark’s Viking history as well, just to let it sink in that they are the minority and the Danes will only be pushed so far before bringing back the “blood eagle.” Just saying.)

 

Best of all, there’s an immediate punishment that will be meted out if any Muslim parents don’t enroll their kids in the Danish Christianity classes. Check out the video below to learn what it is!

Denmark’s government said Monday that children living in a primarily Muslim immigrant community are required to attend classes on democracy, language, and Danish Christian traditions.

 

Danish parents living in ghettos — an official Danish term for non-western immigrant communities — must enroll their children into 25 hours of public education starting at age one, according to Reuters.

 

The ghettos for which this new policy is mandatory are composed mainly of Muslim migrants from Middle Eastern countries. The classes will focus on language skills, foundational education, as well as integral facets of Danish culture like democracy, equality and Christian holidays like Easter and Christmas. (RELATED: Danish Politician Slammed For Saying Fasting Muslims Pose Work Safety Threat)

 

Immigrant parents who do not enroll their children in the mandatory public education program will lose their child welfare benefits. Parents who have already placed their children in daycare programs are not required to enroll their children in these classes. The new policy, on which major opposition parties agreed with the leading Liberal Party and the supporting nationalist Danish People’s Party, was put forward as part of a solution to the problem of integrating Muslim immigrants into Denmark’s western, democratic culture. The leading opposition party, The Social Democratic Party, has taken a harder stance toward Muslim migrants as the problem of migrant communities’ refusal to integrate has persisted in recent years.

 

Non-western immigrants comprise 66.5 percent of the population of ghetto areas and 8.7 percent of Denmark’s overall population of 5.7 million, according to EuroNews. …

The Clarion Bell Warning


As I was putting together my own warning about Islam’s danger to America’s culture of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, Justin Smith sent a similar and admittedly much more erudite submission than my effort.

The Clarion Bell Warning

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/9/2018 3:49 PM

 

I have been ringing the clarion bell warning on the existential threat of Islam for years — since 1979 — and it is only in the last few recent years, even after 9/11, that Americans even seem to remotely understand the methodology and machinations within Islam, Sharia law and all that it demands of its adherents and all non-Muslims they engage.

There are some who foolishly believe Muslims are just like us and only differing by praying on mats pointed to Mecca, with their faces on the floor. Wrong! Their history belies their intentions toward you. Do not be beguiled by the weakest among them; be warned by their most violent and pernicious and be aware it is impossible to tell the difference.

 

Muslims aren’t necessarily trying to “change our Constitution”, but they do use its freedoms to support their call for Sharia Law in America. They work continually to try to codify Sharia Law into U.S. Law, but fortunately, many states have passed the American Laws for American Courts bill that prevents a judge from considering any Sharia precedent in a case.

 

This does not stop the current advancement of Sharia Law as a parallel system in our communities, which leads to the Balkanization of any nation. Sharia Law is the mechanism primarily behind the creation of entire Muslim operated communities, cities and regions — the “no go zones” one finds in France, Germany and the U.K and now here in America, in places like Dearborn, Michigan, Minneapolis, Minnesota and Islamberg, New York.

 

Ask yourself, what is the value to us from the world of Mohammedanism and Islam? What value has Islam contributed to human society in the last 500 years? Name one worthy thing besides couscous it has given the world in that time?

 

In every country where Muslims are in the minority, they are obsessed with minority rights. In every country with a Muslim majority, there are no minority rights.

 

But it’s not just the Muslims who are representing the threat to our Constitution and the entire nation by way of Sharia Law.

 

During her tenure as Dean of Harvard Law School, Elena Kagan, now a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, revealed, inadvertently or not, the evil agenda of the Leftists in her May 2007 presentation, in which she stated that Sharia Law was compatible with our Constitution and could be incorporated within U.S. law. In Dec. 2005, she accepted $20 million from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal for her pet project at Harvard, the Islamic Legal Studies Program.

 

There exists an entire group of people in all echelons of our government, from the local and state to the federal, some citizens and some not, who have been educated and lived much of their lives abroad. From the former “president” on down, many of these people have little connection and even less love for our Republic and the traditional American culture and principles upon which the U.S. was founded. These collaborators and traitors continue to tolerate the abuses and acts of terrorism those sons of Mohammed commit, and while they do not hesitate to command a 95 year old invalid to remove her diaper in an airport, a “possible security risk”, due to their own cowardice and complicity, they cannot and will not name the enemy, because the enemy is them and their Muslim allies.

 

There is one common thread for all the misery, death and suffering in the Middle-East, which is pervasive and dominant…Islam. To welcome its adherents and believers into your midst is to welcome coming misery, suffering and death in equal proportions to the size of any host nation’s Muslim population, until they reach majority at which time misery metastasizes.

 

The formula here is not hard to discern. They complain about discrimination as a minority until they gain control, at which time their discrimination against other ideologies and all religions is all consuming.

 

The enemy is Islam and the Sharia Law doctrine that accompanies it!

 

There is a ring of fire and death around Muslim territory in the Middle-East, South-East Asia, Africa and the “Stans” regions. Any area Islam touches is consumed by and impaled by the eon-and-a-half-old program of proselytizing with force and conquest, by the zealots of the ideology of Islam, the Muslim so-called “religion of peace”. To invite them in is to invite the enemy into your camp. Keep Islam confined within the ring.

 

One should note that Japan does not allow Islam to exist inside its country. Islam cannot be practiced and Muslims are not allowed to live or work there. Muslims are not allowed to immigrate to Japan; and just recently, on Friday June 8th, Austria announced that it would expel sixty Turkish-funded imams and close seven mosques, in their crack-down on political Islam.

 

Marine Le Pen, former French presidential candidate stated: “Austria is taking things in hand and showing that ‘when you want to, you can!'”

 

Matteo Salvini, Italy’s new interior minister, exclaimed: “Those who exploit their faith to endanger a country’s security should be expelled!”

 

And that is why our future elections remain critical, if we do not want to continue on our own current path of Islamization and become just as cowed and badgered and suppressed, especially through hate-speech “laws”, as Eurabia. We need to elect people who understand the existential threat of Islam and who will pass laws aimed at deporting Muslims and extinguishing and eradicating Islam’s influence and presence in our country.

 

All Muslims must be expelled from America and all mosques destroyed. Muslim immigration to America must be halted.

E Pluribus Unum Trumps Multicultural Divisiveness


John R. Houk

© June 9, 2018

 

The Multicultural Left encourages Anti-Constitution/Anti-American-Heritage religion Islam to take up roots in America in the name of diversity. In case you didn’t realize it, DIVERSITY = DIVISION!

 

Two national mottos are stamped in American history representative of who we are as a nation of people. The first national motto codified by Congress on the United Seal in 1782 is E Pluribus Unum. The motto is Latin for “from many, one”. The other national motto is In God We Trust encoded by Congress in 1956 (Wikipedia). I am quite committed to both mottos, but I want to focus on “from many, one” in an American cultural perspective.

 

Whether you believe this motto refers to 13 former British Colonies becoming one to form one nation or a nation of European immigrants who became one-people to form one nation; the point is ‘DIVERSITY” has no part in America blending many people into one nation with one culture (which duh, was a Judeo-Christian heritage!). Why? AGAIN, because DIVERSITY = DIVISION!

 

President Abraham Lincoln completely understood as a nation divided, America would break up into weak independent States. He engaged in the Civil War against the Southern States that perceived Lincoln would promote an ever-growing Northern States attitude that the institution of slavery was immoral and should be abolished.

 

Rather an adopt a greater moral stand in catching up with the moral imperative that human beings should never be treated as property, all humans are created by God and God does not created some humans better than others. Rather the Christian perspective Man fell from union with God in Eden and Man has an opportunity of choice to re-institute that union in Jesus Christ.

 

That is ALL mankind (or humankind if you are a politically correct Multiculturalist Leftist) regardless of racial lines. Indeed Lincoln used the Biblical picture in his House Divided speech when he ran for Senator in Illinois indicating division is weakness:

 

A house divided against itself, cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become lawful in all the States, old as well as new — North as well as South. (Quoted from Wikipedia; Lincoln’s House Divided Speech; page was last edited on 6/1/18 at 11:55)

 

Even though the Civil War came to a fighting point due to Southern wanting to preserve their culture based on State Sovereignty, the fight evolved into a fight on which culture (North or South) would be perpetuated: The Northern belief of a culture of a moral imperative on human nature or a Southern belief that a slave economy is essential to preserve the Southern way of life. Preserving the Union of American States initiated a Christian moral imperative for all Americans illuminating humans as property. In reality it has taken over 100 years for the descendants of former slaves to achieve the united Civil Rights of the descendants on non-slaves. There is still a lot cultural healing for African-Americans to experience because American non-slaves were indoctrinated that Black-skinned humans were inferior to White-skinned humans.

 

At this point I could spin-off to a number of subjects relating to how the Diversity thinking of Multiculturalist has increased division in America more than a continued healing of America bringing about an E Pluribus Unum, but I want focus on one divisive oriented issue that has really been imported to America in the name of Multiculturalism.

 

That imported divisive issue is promoting immigration of Muslim refugees that have been ingrained with the Islamic culture of intolerance of all things NOT Islamic. Lincoln began the union of cultural values by preserving the Union of American States. The American Left (cough – Democrats) is setting the stage for another divided America to fester into violence resulting between preserving our American Heritage and those committed to transforming American culture into self-destructive diverse peoples with no national loyalty but loyalty to only segments of like-minded people. You could call this segmenting Tribalism.

 

What is Tribalism?

 

Merriam-Webster:

 

1 tribal consciousness and loyalty; especially : exaltation of the tribe above other groups

 

2 strong in-group loyalty

 

Cambridge Dictionary:

 

♦ the state of existing as a tribe, or a very strong feeling of loyalty to your tribe

 

♦ a very strong feeling of loyalty to a political or social group, so that you support them whatever they do

 

There is ZERO E Pluribus Unum in Tribalism. A Tribalistic culture in America means this great Republic that our Founding Fathers fought for will not survive.

 

There can be no “from many, one” nation with a theo-political ethos that calls for the destruction or subservience of all things non-Islamic because Islam is superior.

 

No Coexistence Foolish Infidels

 

Search Engines are dominated by Multiculturalist thinking so you may actually have a difficult experience finding Islam/Constitution contradictions. When I began a search the top results were Muslim apologists trying to twist incompatibilities as irrelevant. After working with various phrases I found an honest comparison on WND:

 

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion, yet the Quran states in Sura 4:89, “Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take hold of them and kill them wherever you find them.”

 

In Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari (Vol. 9, Book 84, No. 57), Muhammad said: “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.”

 

Islamic law relegates non-Muslims to “dhimmi” status, where they are not to propagate their customs amongst Muslims and cannot display a Cross or a Star of David.

 

The First Amendment states Congress shall not abridge “the freedom of speech,” yet Islamic law enforces dhimmi status on non-Muslims, prohibiting them from observing their religious practices publicly, raising their voices during prayer or ringing church bells.

 

The First Amendment states Congress cannot take away “the right of the people to peaceably assemble,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims cannot build any new places of worship or repair any old places Muslims have destroyed; they must allow Muslims to participate in their private meetings; they cannot bring their dead near the graveyards of Muslims or mourn their dead loudly.

 

The First Amendment states Congress cannot take away the right of the people “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims are not to harbor any hostility toward the Islamic state or give comfort to those who disagree with Islamic government.

 

The Second Amendment states, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims cannot possess arms, swords or weapons of any kind.

 

The Third Amendment states one cannot be forced to “quarter” someone in their house, yet Islamic law states non-Muslims must entertain and feed for three days any Muslim who wants to stay in their home, and for a longer period if the Muslim falls ill – and they cannot prevent Muslim travelers from staying in their places of worship.

 

The Fourth Amendment guarantees “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures,” yet Islamic law states if a non-Muslim rides on a horse with a saddle and bridle, the horse can be taken away.

 

The Fifth Amendment states that “no person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime … without due process of law,” yet Muhammad said, “No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir (infidel)” (Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, No. 50).

 

The Sixth Amendment guarantees a “public trial by an impartial jury” and the Seventh Amendment states “the right of trial by jury shall be preserved,” yet Islamic law does not give non-Muslims equal legal standing with Muslims, even prohibiting a non-Muslim from testifying in court against a Muslim.

 

The Eighth Amendment states there shall be no “cruel and unusual punishments inflicted,” yet the Quran states:

 

“Cut off the hands of thieves, whether they are male or female, as punishment for what they have done – a deterrent from Allah” (Sura 5:38). READ ENTIRETY – Bold Emphasis Blog Editor’s (QURAN VS. CONSTITUTION: WHY THEY’RE INCOMPATIBLE; By William Federer; WND; 9/26/09  12:00 AM)

 

The Constitution guarantees Religious Freedom, but Religious Freedom cannot be used as a tool to overthrow the Constitution.

 

Citing the Constitution – ARTICLE III, SECTION 3, CLAUSE 1:

 

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. (Treason; The Heritage Guide to the Constitution)

 

U.S. Legal Code on Rebellion or Sedition – 18 U.S. Code § 2383:

 

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

When most American lawmakers agreed that Communism was a threat to our Constitutional Republic, treason description was broadened through the Smith Act in 1940. The original Smith Act had some Constitutional problems that has modified the Act since its 1940 inception. Here is an excerpt from Conservative News and Views relating to the Smith Act:

 

The Smith Act

 

Here is some information about the Smith Act gleaned from Internet:

 

The Alien Registration Act of 1940, usually called the Smith Act because its anti-sedition section was authored by Representative Howard W. Smith of Virginia, is prescribed in 54 Statutes at Large 670-671 (1940). The Act has been amended several times and can now be found at 18 U.S. Code § 2385 (2000).

 

2385. Advocating Overthrow of Government.

 

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

 

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

 

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof–

 

 

The Smith Act and Muslim groups

 

The Smith Act clearly applies to Muslim organizations in the United States such as CAIR, the Council on American–Islamic Relations. CAIR is an Islamic supremacist organization that pioneered 20th century Islamic terrorism, and it sanctions violence against the United States. CAIR is headquartered on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and has regional offices nationwide. Through media relations, lobbying, and education, CAIR promotes Islamic, hence anti-American perspectives to the American public, while promoting social and political activism among Muslims in America. Moreover, CAIR is suspected of being linked to terrorist organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood and to HAMAS in the Gaza strip. Of course, no action will be taken against CAIR as long as Barack Obama is in the White House.

 

 

Islamic terrorism constitutes a clear and present danger to the United States, as understood by the language of the Smith Act. Hence, patriotic American statesmen and organizations should rise up and sound the warning that America has been penetrated by her deadliest enemy. READ ENTIRETY (SEDITION: CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER; By PAUL EIDELBERG; Conservative News and Views; 6/14/16)

 

For clarity, the Smith Act was amended because a thought of criminal activity is not unconstitutional. The Act was amended that actions planned and/or acted upon fits the Constitutional parameters. Here is an excerpt of some of the history the Act’s amendments:

 

Under a 1956 amendment to the Smith Act, if two or more persons conspire to commit any offense described in the statute, each is subject to a maximum fine of $20,000 or a maximum term of imprisonment of twenty years, or both, and is ineligible for employment by the United States or its agencies for five years after conviction. The Smith Act, as enacted in 1940, contained a conspiracy provision, but effective September 1, 1948, the Smith Act was repealed and substantially reenacted as part of the 1948 recodification, minus the conspiracy provision. On June 25, 1948, the Federal general conspiracy statute was passed, effective September 1, 1948, which contained the same provisions as the deleted conspiracy section of the original Smith Act except that the showing of overt acts was required and the maximum penalty became five years’ imprisonment instead of ten (18 U.S.C.A. § 2385). The general conspiracy statute became operative, with respect to conspiracies to violate the Smith Act, substantially in the same manner and to the same extent as previously.

 

The conspiracy provisions of the Smith Act and its provisions defining the substantive offenses have been upheld. An intent to cause the overthrow of the government by force and violence is an essential element of the offenses. The advocacy of peaceful change in U.S. social, economic, or political institutions, irrespective of how fundamental or expansive or drastic such proposals might be, is not forbidden.

 

A conspiracy can exist even though the activities of the defendants do not culminate in an attempt to overthrow the government by force and violence. A conspiracy to advocate overthrow of the government by force or violence, as distinguished from the advocacy itself, can be constitutionally restrained even though it consists of mere preparation because the existence of the conspiracy creates the peril.

 

An agreement to advocate forcible overthrow of the government is not an unlawful conspiracy under the Smith Act if the agreement does not call for advocacy of action; the act covers only advocacy of action for the overthrow of the government by force and violence rather than advocacy or teaching of theoretical concepts. READ ENTIRETY (Smith Act; Encyclopedia.comWest’s Encyclopedia of American Law; © 2005 The Gale Group, Inc.)

 

The point to be realized is Religious Freedom does not protect members of a religion if they actively prepare and work to overthrow the government of the United States Republic. Multicultural Diversity encourages a divisiveness that emboldens treason, sedition and/or rebellion.

 

Americans should not fear Multiculturalist political correctness to tell their Representatives and Senators to be wary of any religion – not just Islam – that advocates the overthrow of the U.S. government. Even if it means shutting down donations from nations or foreign NGOs that have a design to undermine or destroy the American Constitutional Rule of Law. Or shutting Mosques (or perhaps White Pride Identity Churches) that ACTIVELY (as defined by treason, sedition and rebellion) place their beliefs above the Rule of Law.

 

These thoughts were inspired by the recent actions of the Austrian government that has done exactly what I have described above about Mosques and subversive monies from foreign entities.

Austria’s right-wing government plans to shut down seven mosques and expel up to 40 foreign-funded imams in crackdown against Islamist ideology

 

By KHALEDA RAHMAN FOR MAILONLINE and REUTERS

Daily Mail

 

  • Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced the measures in a news conference
  • Kurz said a hardline Turkish nationalist mosque in Vienna is going to be closed 
  • The Arab Religious Community that runs six mosques will also be dissolved 
  • Ankara quickly denounced the move, saying the move ‘is a reflection of the anti-Islam, racist and discriminatory populist wave’ in Austria

 

Austria said today it could expel up to 60 Turkish-funded imams and their families and would shut down seven mosques as part of a crackdown on ‘political Islam’ that was described as ‘just the beginning’, triggering fury in Ankara.

 

Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said the government is shutting a hardline Turkish nationalist mosque in Vienna and dissolving a group called the Arab Religious Community that runs six mosques.

 

His coalition government, an alliance of conservatives and the far right, came to power soon after Europe’s migration crisis on promises to prevent another influx and clamp down on benefits for new immigrants and refugees.

 

In a previous job as minister in charge of integration, Chancellor Kurz oversaw the passing of a tough ‘law on Islam’ in 2015, which banned foreign funding of religious groups and created a duty for Muslim societies to have ‘a positive fundamental view towards (Austria’s) state and society’.

 

‘Parallel societies, political Islam and radicalisation have no place in our country,’ Kurz told a news conference outlining the government’s decisions, which were based on that law.

 

‘This is just the beginning,’ far-right Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache added.

 

Ankara quickly denounced the move, and Turkey’s presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Twitter: ‘Austria’s decision to close down seven mosques and deport imams with a lame excuse is a reflection of the anti-Islam, racist and discriminatory populist wave in this country.’

Interior Minister Herbert Kickl of the far-right Freedom Party (FPOe), the junior partner in Austria’s coalition government, said: ‘The circle of people possibly affected by these measures – the pool that we’re talking about – comprises around 60 imams.’

 

Kickl was referring to imams with alleged links to the Turkish-Islamic Cultural Associations (ATIB) organisation, a branch of Turkey’s religious affairs agency Diyanet.

 

The interior minister added that the government suspects them of contravening a ban on foreign funding of religious office holders.

 

The ministry said 40 of them had an active application for extending their residency and that a number of these had already been referred to immigration authorities, where a process for expelling them was underway.

 

Once family members were taken into account, a total 150 people risked losing their right to residence, Kickl told a Vienna press conference.

 

The actions by the government are based on a 2015 law that, among other things, prevents religious communities from getting funding from abroad. Pictured left, Kurz and right, Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache 

 

Seven mosques will also be shut after an investigation by Austria’s religious affairs authority sparked by images which emerged in April of children in a Turkish-backed mosque playing dead and re-enacting the World War I battle of Gallipoli.

 

‘Parallel societies, political Islam and radicalisation have no place in our country,’ said Chancellor Sebastian Kurz of the ruling centre-right People’s Party.

 

The photos of children, published by the Falter weekly, showed the young boys in camouflage uniforms marching, saluting, waving Turkish flags and then playing dead.

 

Their ‘corpses’ were then lined up and draped in the flags.

 

The mosque in question was run by ATIB.

 

‘This is just the beginning,’ far-right Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache (centre) told the news conference. Pictured left, Kurz and right, Interior Minister Herbert Kickl

ATIB itself condemned the photos at the time, calling the event ‘highly regrettable’ and saying it was ‘called off before it had even ended’.

 

One of the mosques targeted by Friday’s measure was in the Favoriten district of Vienna.

 

The government said it had been operating illegally and that it was under the influence of the far-right Turkish political movement, the Grey Wolves.

 

Worshippers arriving for Friday prayers were met with a sign on the door reading ‘closed’ in Turkish and German.

 

Kursant, a 26-year-old, told AFP: ‘I’ve been coming to this mosque frequently since I was a child, I’ve had lessons here, I’ve never heard anyone at the mosque, any of the employees, express any Salafist opinions. That’s laughable.’

 

Six other mosques are being closed down, three in Vienna, two in Upper Austria and one in Carinthia.

 

All but one of the mosques affected belong to the ‘Arab Religious Association,’ according to the government.

 

But while Turkey’s presidential spokesman on Friday lambaste the measures as ‘anti-Islam’ and ‘racist’ move, other European far-right leaders welcomed the announcement.

 

Marine Le Pen, the leader of the French Front National, said on Twitter: ‘Austria is taking things in hand and showing that ‘when you want to, you can!”

 

Last week Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (pictured) attacked Kurz, saying: ‘This immoral chancellor has a problem with us’

 

Matteo Salvini, head of Italy’s League and interior minister in the new government, also tweeted his approval, saying: ‘Those who exploit their faith to endanger a country’s security should be expelled!’

 

Turkey’s relations with Austria have long been strained, with Kurz calling on the European Union to break off negotiations on Ankara joining the bloc and banning Turkish politicians from campaigning in Austria for upcoming elections.

 

Austria, a country of 8.8 million people, has roughly 600,000 Muslim inhabitants, more than half of whom are Turkish or have families of Turkish origin.

 

Around 360,000 people of Turkish origin live in Austria, including 117,000 Turkish nationals.

 

Last week Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attacked Kurz, saying: ‘This immoral chancellor has a problem with us’.

‘He’s throwing his weight around and making a scene,’ Erdogan went on.

 

Both Kurz, of the centre-right People’s Party (OeVP) and the FPOe made immigration and integration major themes in their election campaigns last year.

 

The topic had been pushed up the political agenda by the migrant crisis of 2015-16, which saw more than 150,000 people seek asylum in the country of 8.7 million.

 

In Friday’s press conference Kurz was keen to emphasise that the action was being taken under legislation to regulate Islamic associations that he himself brought in as a minister in the previous government and which had so far – in his opinion – not been used often enough.

 

The conservative Kurz became chancellor in December in a coalition with the anti-migration Freedom Party.

 

In campaigning for last year’s election, both coalition parties called for tougher immigration controls, quick deportations of asylum-seekers whose requests are denied and a crackdown on radical Islam.

 

The government recently announced plans to ban girls in elementary schools and kindergartens from wearing headscarves, adding to existing restrictions on veils.

Russian Strategy and Europe’s Refugee Crisis


Paul Sutliff sent me a link to a Center for Security Policy (CSP) pdf link with this recommendation:

 

This is a must read. I am hoping to have at least one of the authors on my June 28th show when I move to Thursdays. This is a must read!

 

That show, by the way, is Civilization Jihad Awareness with Paul Sutliff on Blog Talk Radio. The show comes on live, but it is archived. You should go there and catch up.

 

The pdf is 20 pages with foot notes. Take your time and thoroughly read the CSP analysis. I could probably write a whole other post trying to introduce this extremely important analysis, but I won’t.

 

That which I say will little justice to the content presented, but here goes a brief thought. The central bad guy as to American National Security is Russia. You will discover that Russia is at the heart of the Muslim Refugee crisis smacking Europe. AND in relation to that you should understand the Russian goal is destabilization first in Europe and second in the USA. Russia even has tentacle infiltrating European Nationalist movements to foment societal chaos while also publicly supporting the Multicultural Left ideals. This duo strategy has only one purpose: cultural destabilization designed to disunite European resolve and alienate a united Europe away from America.

 

TRUST ME! Those brief words about “Russian Strategy and Europe’s Refugee Crisis” is only the mere tip of the iceberg that I pray you take the time to fully understand what the authors J.R. Nyquist and Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea are trying to enlighten you concerning the survival of our Western Culture via strategic concepts of National Security and National Interests.

Russian Strategy and Europe’s Refugee Crisis

 

By J.R. Nyquist and Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea

May 29, 2018

Center for Security Policy

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Forty years ago, a serious long-term problem confronting Moscow was the USSR’s fast-growing Muslim population. It was then speculated that the Soviet Union’s high Muslim birthrate would turn the USSR into a majority Muslim country by the middle of the twenty-first century. It is a strange joke, and more than a curious twist of fate, that NATO faces this same prospect today.

 

The Russian armed forces officially moved into Syria on 30 September 2015. Already a massive Muslim “refugee” invasion of Europe was underway, stretching through the spring and summer of that year. This migrant flood occurred without a dramatic change in the Syrian crisis. According to a report by investigative journalist Witold Gadowski, published in mid-September 2015, the people then pouring into the heart of Europe included more than refugees, and possibly included ISIS terrorist infiltrators.1

 

Gadowski was a well-known war reporter, documentary film director, and winner of several journalism prizes in Poland and abroad. He went to Syria in 2015 and discovered that in the territory controlled by the Islamic State (ISIS), there was no chance for anyone to leave ISIS-controlled territory without permission. As he explained, the punishment for attempting to escape was crucifixion.2

 

In Gadowski’s opinion, the flood of refugees had been triggered by decisions made in Moscow, and perhaps in Tehran. In fact, the mass killing of Syrian civilians was an ongoing project of the Russian-backed Syrian dictator, Bashar al-Assad – whose troops were killing seven times more civilians than ISIS.3 Once the Russian bombers arrived, even more civilians were targeted.4

 

Of special interest, and contrary to public declarations, Russian and Chinese technicians were busy helping ISIS to maintain its captured oil rigs and refineries, while Russian trained Iraqi military officers (formerly in Saddam Hussein’s army), were leading ISIS forces against the Baghdad government (which government set up a joint intelligence headquarters in league with Iran and Russia).5 From this and other evidence it appears that Russia has been playing a double game in the Middle East.

 

Using the Iraqi oil infrastructure, relying on clandestine Russian technical support, ISIS earned $800 million in annual revenues by “selling more than 60,000 barrels of oil per day.” But this was not the Islamic State’s only source of income. According to Gadowski:

 

…the Islamic State trades artworks and archeological artifacts. It is not true that the monuments of antique culture are destroyed. They are sold and bring a large income. In 90 percent of the cases, this is happening through the Russian mafia. The Islamic State and the wave of refugees bring profits to the Russian, Turkish and Albanian mafias.6

 

In this matter the Russian mafia is not simply the Russian mafia, and the same can be said of mafia organizations which have appeared throughout the “former” communist world. As noted by Brian Whitmore of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, “Organized crime is now a major element of Russian statecraft.”7 According to Gadowski, Russia’s game is to “checkmate Europe, and to a lesser extent the United States.” Outwardly Russia pretends to fight ISIS. In reality, Russia helps ISIS. Essential to the plan, the Syrians were generating refugees by terrorizing civilians in Syria. As stated above, Gadowski believed that a secret Islamic State Terrorist Unit (AMNI) was placing fanatical killers among the refugees. In this way a vast network of suicide bombers and murderers entered Europe.8

 

After arriving in Syria, Russian air units launched bombing raids against Syrian civilians, adding to the refugee flow in late summer. Of course, the refugee crisis was well under way before the Russians arrived. It had peaked earlier. What the bombing showed, however, was Russia’s strategic intention. The Syrians and the Russians were following a pre-defined path. The bombers were the icing on a cake already baked. Long before the Russian bombers arrived other means of pressure had been employed by Syria – including the use of chemical weapons. Refugees (and terrorists) had long since flooded into neighboring Turkey. Through the spring and summer of 2015, the numbers were getting larger and larger. A significant proportion of these masses moved into Europe. This paper will present evidence and arguments that Russia and her allies (Syria and Iran) set this process in motion as part of a larger strategic design. The authors believe that Moscow does not act haphazardly. Rather, its moves are carefully thought-out in advance. The strategy being applied is complex, its objectives masked by disinformation and subterfuge, extortion and blackmail, organized crime and false flag terrorist operations.

 

THE ARAB SPRING

 

When rebellions began to break out in the Middle East several years ago, the former chief of Romanian intelligence, Ion Mihai Pacepa, wondered why the first rebellions in the series took place “only in Islamic countries that are pro-American.” He asked why the rebels were burning American flags. He thought it suspicious that the United States had no advanced warning of the mass demonstrations that swept the Arab world from Morocco to the Persian Gulf. Pacepa noted that “on the first day of the Cairo uprising” the demonstrators “were carrying flags displaying the hammer and sickle.” He called this “a mistake caused by overzealousness….”9

 

The rebellion that began on 17 December 2010 in Tunisia, and spread across the Arab world, was an attempt to sweep away “moderate” Arab regimes. It was not a revolution for freedom or democracy. As Richard Miniter wrote in a 2011 Forbes article, “Virtually every element of the media narrative [on the Arab Spring] … is wrong or misleading.” The rebellion was not a spontaneous reaction to local dictatorships. According to Miniter, Egypt’s chief of intelligence warned Gen. David Petraeus in 2010 that Iran – a close ally and client state of Moscow – was preparing to “bring down [Egypt’s] Mubarak regime.”10

 

Miniter was told by intelligence officials that “Iran’s agents are behind the street demonstrations and violent attacks on government buildings.” 11 Iran’s revolutionary activity throughout the region, however, was not merely Iranian. This activity was connected to Russia, and to Russia’s past support for the communist cause. According to an Iranian specialist, the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ali Khamenei, was educated in Moscow and may be a Russian intelligence asset. Worse yet, other top leaders in Iran were also educated in Russia, with ongoing ties to Moscow.12

 

In a recently published article by the Katehon Institute13 in Russia, B. Ozerov explained that the Soviet government in 1918 “was guided by understanding Islam as a close ideology to the communist doctrine.” After all, Islam favored ideals of equality, social justice, and the redistribution of wealth. According to Ozerov, Moscow’s initial plan in the region was “to transform Islam into an Eastern edition of Communism….”14

 

In a 4 July 1925 interview with the Tokyo Nichi Nichi Shimbun, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin was asked if he believed revolutionary turmoil in China, India, Persia and Egypt was bound to sweep away the Western powers. “Yes, I do,” said the communist leader, who added that the West would be “attacked on two sides – in the rear as well as in front.”

 

RELATED INSIGHTS OF V. KALASHNIKOV AND A. ILLARIONOV

 

In June 2013 J.R. Nyquist interviewed a disaffected KGB officer in Russia named Viktor Kalashnikov. In reference to Syria, the former KGB lieutenant colonel said, “It’s all about struggle against the United States. All allies are measured in terms of their anti-Americanism. If they are anti-American, they are our friends.” Kalashnikov then referred to the deployment of “terrorist armies.” Armies composed of terrorists, said Kalashnikov, were better than old-fashioned Soviet tank armies. They were more flexible, and cheaper than tanks. “The head of the Russian state has publicly warned the West that … arms deliveries to the opposition in Syria might result in terrorist attacks against Europe. That’s a clear causus belli – a real terrorist threat,” said Kalashnikov.15

 

When Nyquist advanced the idea that the Cold War was over, Kalashnikov scoffed. This is yet another topic, he said. “But we have to ask what happened to the Soviet Union in 1991. It was dismantled for the sake of reorganization and for the sake of Russian power.” The Soviet generals were not happy with the strategic situation. The large tank armies of the Soviet Union were, in Kalashnikov’s words, “a wasting asset, especially after 1983.”16

 

The core strategy, he explained, “was splitting Europe from America.” In the 1980s this was attempted with the threat of war. But now, under present circumstances, a different method would have to be devised. “What happened on 9/11 was just an omen of things to come,” he explained.

 

In Part 1 of the interview, headlined “Russia’s Islamist Alliance, Plans to Destroy NATO,” the former KGB lieutenant colonel, who had been trained as a strategist, attempted to draw the interviewer’s attention to Russia’s support for the anti-immigrant parties in Europe. Here Kalashnikov referred to Islam as a Russian weapon in the destruction of NATO. Realizing the interviewer was perplexed, Kalashnikov said, “Let me talk about [the neo-fascists] in Hungary. They are pro-Putin. They are nationalists, and of course, they are absolutely anti-Semitic and anti-American.”17

 

What did the anti-immigrant parties have to do with “terrorist armies” in the Middle East? What did any of it have to do with splitting America off of Europe? Here was a question requiring careful consideration. To answer this question, one might well imagine how NATO would have prospered if Hillary Clinton and Marine Le Pen had won their respective elections. What if Europe followed France’s lead? Would the politically correct Americans remain allies with the new Europe? “What I would suggest,” said Kalashnikov, “is that your anti-terror experts read Vladimir Lenin who provided the textbook for terrorists. How they should set up combat units; who is to be killed first and second; what strategy and tactics to adopt. Lenin developed a complete theory for using terrorism to take power and govern a huge state. That was the beginning of Soviet strategy, statehood and government, as well as international policy.”18

 

Was Kalashnikov talking about Europe?

 

More than one year after Kalashnikov’s curious pronouncements, a former Kremlin economic advisor named Andrei Illarionov, made an even more curious statement. In a December 2014 television interview, Illarionov noted that Europe had reached its lowest level of defense readiness. He also noted that Russia was openly threatening the West with nuclear war. Illarionov then made an astonishing prediction, adding that “the European nations will not be very much surprised, let’s say, if in the spring of next year, 2015, there will be some kind of massive political movement – let’s say a kind of ‘Islamic spring.’”19

 

Being Russian himself, having worked in the Kremlin, it seems obvious that Illarionov had access to high-level sources. The coming “Islamic spring,” he said, would not occur in the Middle East, “but in Europe.” He mentioned destabilizing effects on “certain European countries” where the crisis would “consume the energy and attention of European leaders at a time when Mr. Putin would try and fulfill his neo-imperial project….”20

 

Illarionov was quite specific when he said the coming “Islamic spring” in Europe would involve “movements and activities … in European countries themselves.” When asked if this could be triggered by Russia, Illarionov said, “I am just warning … when it should happen … European societies should not be [too] much shocked and surprised.”

 

Illarionov’s prediction carries forward the suggestion that Moscow instigated the migrant crisis. For how else could Illarionov have known about an “Islamic spring” involving “movements and activities … in Europe”? His prediction was an unlikely direct hit. To know something in advance is to know something is being planned. Illarionov clearly predicted the most significant event of the following year. He also implied this event was planned to distract the West from Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. And this prediction fits perfectly with the analysis of Lt. Col. Viktor Kalashnikov, a resident of Moscow, who warned of Russia deploying “terrorist armies” in 2013. The fact is, people in Moscow knew what was coming. And why wouldn’t they? It takes enormous resources and real planning to move millions of people from the Middle East to the heart of Europe. A lot of people had to know in advance, if only to set up the needed transport system.

 

INSIGHTS OF A ROMANIAN GENERAL

 

Those who have lived under communist regimes, who were educated as strategists, are in a better position to properly evaluate recent events than their West European counterparts. During an August 2015 Adevarul Live television discussion, retired Army General Constantin Degeratu referred to the European refugee crisis as a “hybrid war” of aggression, conjured out of the Middle East by Russia. Superficially, the refugee crisis “completely covered the problem of the Russian aggression against Ukraine,” Degeratu noted. He then stated that the whole refugee operation was “well organized.” The general added, “Look at the people who are coming. They are better dressed and better fed than 10 to 15 percent of Romania’s population. This is a planned invasion, it doesn’t have a direct cause in the Middle East….” He then pointed out the logistical difficulties involved in moving millions of people hundreds or thousands of miles. “If somebody is to come from Afghanistan with a trolley to the border of Macedonia, this requires logistics.”21

 

As if to clarify Kalashnikov’s earlier point about Hungary, Degeratu pointed to a curious anomaly. “It is said that this threefold increase in the number of refugees compared to the numbers of last summer is taking everyone by surprise. But [this] occurred a week after Hungary completed the building of [a large border] fence. Doesn’t it seem interesting to you that first the fence was built and afterwards this migration started, in that particular area?”22

 

Retired Army General Alexandru Grumaz was also on the program. He agreed that the migration was “well supported.” He added that Turkey also had an interest in pushing the refugees along, toward Europe. It was, said Grumaz, a crisis of European institutions. Degeratu said the problem of the refugee invasion could not be solved. Why? “Because it is managed by Russia and thus it is meant not to be solved, but to be maintained.” The general then said, “Russia’s interest is to maintain this crisis.”

 

“It is clear,” said Degeratu, “that if the European Union doesn’t want to live the nightmare … which says that in the years 2030 to 2040 more than 60 percent of the active EU population will be Muslim … then the European countries should decide if they want to survive as a civilization or not.” According to Degeratu’s strategic assessment, “We have to understand that we are the target of a war, and we may call it hybrid, or an asymmetrical war, but this migrant wave is a consequence of it.” He then summarized the perilous cost of the migrants for Europe, noting, “the cost for each one of these people is three times the minimum retirement pension in Romania!”23

 

Surely, said Degeratu, “The political attitude [in Europe] with regard to this situation needs to change. So far, it’s been peace-time politics. Now we are the target of an aggression. Border control is absolutely mandatory.”

 

According to Prof. Przemysław Żurawski vel Grajewski, who was asked by Dr. Cernea to comment on Gen. Degeratu’s assessments, “The opinions of Gen. Degeratu are fully justified and I would subscribe [to] each of his statements….” Prof. Żurawski is one of Poland’s best political analysts. He teaches social science at the University of Łódz and the National School of Public Administration, serving in the National Council for Development, an advisory board to President Andrzej Duda. He is also a counselor to the current Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jacek Czaputowicz. According to Prof. Żurawski, the Russians are not responsible for all the refugees who have flooded into Europe, but it is certain “they did their best to make [the problem] larger … to confuse the political scene in European countries … as much as they can. Russia is the main ally of Assad and Iran….” These allies of Russia, he said, have maximized “the scale of the refugees.” Prof. Żurawski also pointed to “the semi-criminal FSB/local mafias and hybrid structures in Bosnia and Herzegovina.” These also played a role in moving refugees through the Balkans into the heart of Europe. “The conclusion is,” he said, “that Russia had instruments to maximize the troubles” despite Europe’s inability to find “a smoking gun.”24

 

Prof. Żurawski also noted that, “Anti-immigrant parties in the West are usually pro-Russian (Front National, AfD); so deepening the crisis helps Russia’s followers in the West.” This point should not be overlooked. (Kalashnikov hinted at this factor with reference to Hungary more than a year before the refugee crisis began.) Here the manipulation of the European right that takes center stage. Moscow has every reason to believe the European anti-immigrant parties will gain political traction as the refugee crisis intensifies. Moscow, therefore, has reason to invest in the European right. Simultaneously, Moscow also uses its agents on the European left. These agents intensify the crisis through “politically correct” policies. As the left drives the crisis forward, the right opposition grows and seeks ready allies – and is driven into Moscow’s open arms.

 

This process may already be underway in Hungary where Prime Minister Viktor Orban has shifted toward Moscow.25 The Chief of the Hungarian General Staff, Gen. Tibor Benkő, says that Hungary does not have to buy equipment exclusively from NATO countries. Russia is currently modernizing Hungarian Mi-24 and Mi-17 helicopters for $64 million.26 Perhaps even more alarming is Prime Minister Orban’s tolerance with regard to Russian infiltration of the Hungarian right. Former Hungarian anti-communists are now celebrating Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, linking arms with Russian officials. According to authors Péter Krekó and Lóránt Győri, Russia has invested political capital in “hate groups in Central Europe,” with financial ties “to violent organizations in Central and Eastern Europe as well….”27 This is a conscious strategy:

 

In Moscow’s toolkit of active measures and hybrid warfare, the boundaries between violent and nonviolent tools are increasingly blurry. And this process is two-directional: not only can information be weaponized; violent organizations can be used as soft-power tools. The Kremlin is highly effective at infiltrating fringe parties and paramilitary organizations in Central Europe. They are easy to purchase or control, as these extremist groups tend to be small and easily manipulated.28

 

What is the ultimate strategic value of the infiltration and manipulation of fringe parties and paramilitary groups? Keeping this question in mind, when we look at the present-day chaos in the Middle East, Russia’s past support for terrorist organizations of every kind becomes less and less of a riddle.

 

The former Romanian Minister for Communications and Information,29 Marius Bostan, was asked by Dr. Cernea if he agreed with Gen. Degeratu’s remarks. Bostan replied, “From the perspective of my own experience in public service and politics, I do agree with Gen. Degeratu’s opinion that Russia is likely to have been involved in the migrant crisis and … it should be regarded as a hybrid war operation against the West.” Bostan emphasized that “a very important component of the hybrid war is the cultural dimension.” Here the Internet plays a key role. The Russian long-term investment in “propaganda, disinformation, opinion and behavior-shaping” cannot be underestimated. A short-term view would be a mistake. Bostan explained,

 

There is something about the Russian strategy that is difficult to explain to our Western allies. It’s the fact that Russia usually acts on both sides of a (real or manufactured) conflict. For instance, on [the] Internet we notice that Russian propaganda, disinformation or trolling activity on forums and social networks typically carry messages meant to create/amplify conflicts between different ethnic or religious groups – Romanians versus Hungarians, Poles versus Ukrainians, Christians versus Jews, etc. And they encourage at the same time groups with opposed views – far left anti-market tendencies [versus] libertarian ones, LGBT-rights [versus] conservative Christian activism, open-border multiculturalism [versus] anti-immigration movements, etc. Thus, Russia is able to provoke conflicts and crises, and to influence the public agenda of the countries it targets for subversion.

 

This ambivalence may seem paradoxical to Western minds, used to a binary logic according to which something cannot be black and white at the same time. Well, Russians are not Westerners. In the East, black and white may be defined in many different ways. Moreover, the Russian leaders still function according to a mentality shaped by Marxist dialectics, which says that progress results from the constant struggle between contrary elements.

 

It looks like the West is only now discovering that, for instance, Russian internet trolls simultaneously support a certain cause and its contrary.30

 

Bostan has laid out one of Russia’s key strategies. He says this kind of strategy is “difficult” for the West to understand. As Rudyard Kipling expressed it, “East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet.” At some point in the future, however, the West must learn to appreciate Russia’s “scissors strategy” – “that Russia usually acts on both sides of a … conflict.” If there is one central lesson to be drawn from this study, Bostan has underscored it.

 

In their Atlantic Council article, “From Russia with Hate,” Péter Krekó and Lóránt Győri explain how Polish counterintelligence “is currently investigating Mateusz Piskorski, the leader of the Polish leftist party … as well as former activists of the far-right Polish Congress of the New Right (KNP) on charges of espionage on behalf of Russia.”31 Here is the classic Russian “scissors strategy” at work If the refugee crisis is part of a Russian scissors strategy, how does Russia benefit? First, political tensions are intensified between the European right and left; second, the right can be pushed toward Moscow by a variety of mechanisms; third, a general weakening of NATO develops under a scenario of “divide and conquer”; fourth, a general demoralization and loss of belief in existing institutions naturally follows.

 

In his interview with Epoch Times in November 2015, General Degeratu showed the depth of this understanding when he said we “should see who takes profit” from the refugee crisis. “Well,” he explained, the Russians profited, and many cracks appeared in NATO. “We see how ‘united’ Europe has been,” Degeratu added. “Full unity! There have been 50 voices in our European ‘unity.’”32

 

Those who have set up the exercise have understood all our weaknesses and have exploited them properly. What else have they obtained … does anyone still speak about the Ukrainian crisis? Not anymore. There are also 1 million – in fact, 800,000 – refugees, from Eastern Ukraine and Crimea, most of them from Donbass. Eight hundred thousand. There are 8,000 dead. Around 2,000 children and pregnant women have died in this crisis. We almost haven’t seen them on the (TV) screen, there have been no gatherings, there was no session of the Romanian Parliament….33

 

Degeratu is extraordinarily perceptive, and other experts agree with his assessment that Russia is waging a hybrid war against Europe. “Maybe some of us are too militarily-minded and ask questions that shouldn’t be asked,” said Degeratu.

 

DIRECT TESTIMONY FROM A SYRIAN GENERAL ON RUSSIA’S DOUBLE GAME

 

There is a stunning revelation in the fragment of a September 2015 interview given to Witold Gadowski by Syrian Brigadier General Ahmad Aljjdeaa, a soldier with thirty years of experience in the Syrian Army who is also the deputy minister of defense in the Syrian government-in-exile. According to Gen. Aljjdeaa, “Russian officers are constantly present in the branches of the Syrian army supporting the regime of Bashar Assad….”

 

Then he added, “Russia is interested in confusion in Syria. There are also four military training centers in Russia, in which fanatics are trained, who then fill the ranks of the Islamic State troops (ISIS). Among the trained are also Chechens.”34

 

Related to this, another curious headline reads: “In retreating from Iraq, ISIS terrorists

 

lost their Russian passports.”35  The facts are reported as follows: “The Iraqi military, who at the end of last week occupied the university building previously held by ISIS in the city of Mosul, displayed what was found in evidence as the identification papers of Islamic State terrorists, which mostly turned out to be Russian.”36

 

Again, it is a case of the “scissors strategy.” Moscow has perfected the fine art of stage-managing fake wars and phony splits with false fronts made up of “useful idiots.”37 Russia’s deployment of terrorist and counter-terrorist forces in Syria and Iraq should surprise no one. This procedure was used during the Soviet-Afghan War in the 1980s and again during the recent wars in Chechnya.38

 

At this juncture it may be useful to recite a bit of history. In July 2005 the Russian KGB/FSB defector Alexander Litvinenko told the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita that Ayman al-Zawahiri (then Al-Qaeda’s second in command) was trained by the FSB in Dagestan in 1997. According to the former KGB foreign intelligence officer Konstantin Preobrazhensky, Litvinenko “was responsible for securing the secrecy of al-Zawahiri’s arrival in Russia … in 1996-1997.”39

 

The Romanian intelligence defector, Lt. Gen. Ion Mahai Pacepa, has described Moscow’s use of Arab terrorist organizations throughout the Cold War in his books.40 We know that Russia stands firmly behind the Islamic terror regime in Tehran. Researcher Antero Leitzinger explained, “Modern terrorism was born within a year, 1967-68. International socialists (communists) started the fashion all over the world simultaneously, which should make us suspicious about the common roots. National socialists followed suit, turning Marxists of Muslim origin into Islamists of Marxist origin.”41

 

Among the closest associates of Khomeini, there were many Communists who had conveniently grown beards. Mustafa Ali Chamran had studied in California and Egypt before he founded a Red Shi’ite secret society. His pupils included later foreign minister Ibrahim Yazdi, oil minister Mohammed Gharazi, and Lebanese fellow student in Berkeley University, Hussein Shaikh al-Islam, who led the occupation of the US Embassy in Tehran. This occupation, shortly before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, focused Iranian radicalism into anti-Americanism…. Mohammed Beheshti, whose death at a bombing on June 28th, 1981, remained a mystery, had resided in East Germany. Khomeini’s early companion and foreign minister, Sadegh Ghotbzadeh had successfully accommodated with the new regime. Both Ghotbzadeh and Chamran had received Palestinian terrorist training. As a student in the USA, Ghotbzadeh had been recruited by the [Soviet] GRU.42

 

With regard to the Soviet-Afghan War, Leitzinger explained that Soviet Military Intelligence (GRU) had developed special capabilities by the late 1980s, especially “how to manipulate Islamists and to make Communists (of the Khalq faction) to grow beards and join their declared enemies.” According to Leitzinger, “This ‘Khalq strategy” provided a successful alternative to the more orthodox “Parcham strategy” that relied on ideologically less unholy alliances.”43

 

Leitzinger argued that the Russian secret services “gained a tight hold on international terrorism, and [especially] on Islamism” in the 1990s. The terrorist is, in essence, a special kind of agent provocateur. A Western analyst finds it difficult to see the Afghan-Soviet War or the first and second Chechen Wars as utilizing provocation techniques on a broad scale. Former CIA official T.H. Bagley and KGB defector Peter Deriabin noted, “Soviet provocation … remains little understood in the West. People safe in a democratic system may find it difficult to conceive that rulers would systematically use such hostile techniques against their own subjects.”44

 

If Moscow’s wars in Afghanistan and Chechnya were built around terrorist provocations, and the objective was to radicalize and infiltrate Islam, and reorient Islam against the West, then the wars in Afghanistan and Chechnya appear in a more intelligible light. The Soviet Union did not invade Afghanistan for conventional reasons, or to attain classical military control.

 

With the advent of the refugee crisis in Europe, with the likelihood of thousands of terrorists settled within a mass of protected Muslim refugees, the least sign of Russian involvement – or the involvement of Russia’s Islamist surrogates – ought to inspire a shockwave of alarm through Europe’s security establishment. Given the history of Moscow’s infiltration of Islam, and the mounting evidence of Russia’s double game, the Kremlin would be the most natural suspect in any close study of the refugee crisis. Arguably, any other focus would be irresponsible.

 

As reported by the BBC, U.S. Gen. Philip Breedlove, the senior NATO commander in Europe, said that Russia and Syria were “deliberately weaponizing migration in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve.” He cited Russia’s use of barrel bombs against Syrian civilians. What was the purpose of such indiscriminate attacks? The purpose was, he said, to “get them [masses of people] on the road” to Europe.45

 

Masses of homeless people, adhering to an alien religion, is one problem for Europe. Terrorism is yet another. Since the refugee crisis began Europe has been hit with an unprecedented wave of terrorist attacks (not to mention rapes and robberies). First came the Paris killings of November 2015, then the Brussels bombings of March 2016, then the Nice truck attack and the Normandy church attack of July 2016. Then there was the string of Islamic stabbings across Europe.46

 

Some of our sources (quoted above) have claimed that modern terrorism was introduced to the Muslims by the communist bloc half a century ago. This point must not be forgotten when evaluating the left’s strange love affair with Islam. “From the very beginning,” said former KGB Lt. Col. Konstantin Preobrazhensky, “the so-called Bolsheviks, or communists, were considering Muslims as the reserve [army], as the human resource for the world revolution. Not all … people know that the second appeal by Lenin, after the Great October Socialist Revolution in 1917, was addressed to Muslim toilers….” Preobrazhensky continued:

 

At that time Islam was the religion of the oppressed … of the people colonized by the West. As Lenin said by the time of the … Communist International, ‘The West is existing at the expense of the East.’ Even now we can hear such conclusions, such ideas. And as soon as the Russian Revolution took place, Russian Muslims immediately supported it, so that the communist Muslim military organizations were formed. The Muslim communists were dethroning the local bourgeois Muslim governments which appeared in the Russian Empire47.

 

MUSLIM REFUGEES TO EUROPE: A RUSSIAN POLICY

 

According to Antoni Rybczynski, “The migratory crisis in Europe is largely a work of Russian policy….” He further stated, “Already … when nobody expected Russian raids in Syria, Vladimir Putin warned that Europe would face the great problems associated with the influx of immigrants.” In this way Moscow supported Assad while undermining Europe.48

 

Another Niezalezna.pl headline underscores this same idea: “Putin’s diabolical game, Exporting Muslim immigrants to Europe.” The article begins, “The Norwegian authorities believe that the refugees’ invasion of their country is a Russian provocation.”49

 

In October 2015 the Czech Minister of Defense, Martin Stropnicky, suggested that Russia was possibly financing the transportation of refugees to Europe. “Although I do not have 100 percent proof of this information,” he said, “I cannot discount it either.”50 Given all we know, his surmise is logical. It is sensible. Why wouldn’t Russia – which has armed Islamic terrorists throughout Asia – arm Islamic terrorists in Germany, Britain, France or Sweden?

 

According to a member of the Estonian National Defense League, Ants Laaneots, “Putin’s aim is the disintegration of the European Union and NATO, if possible.” Russia, he added, is promoting “Euroscepticism.”51 More likely, Russia’s strategy includes many subtle and indirect objectives. As with the work of the late Mohammad Fahim in Afghanistan, Russia can take over a NATO-defended country through the work of an enterprising criminal. Russia can thereby paralyze the heart of Afghanistan or the heart of Europe in a way that mocks European compassion.

 

The Chairman of the Supreme Council of Lithuania, Vytautas Landsbergis, made an observation on 15 September 2015 about the refugee crisis almost identical to others we have seen:

 

I was thinking who had to profit, and I know now. In the current crisis, the whole attention is focused on Europe. Nobody is speaking of Ukraine any more, although there are almost 2 million refugees there as well. Putin has chased them away, and nobody is proposing them to go where life is better….52

 

According to Landsbergis, the current migration crisis is a threat to European civilization.

 

Europe has met a big danger for its own system, even for its own civilization. The Germans earlier had illusions, that they would manage to integrate a million Turks, that the Turks would become Germans and there would be no problem. It didn’t work. Ghettos were created, a state within the state, and these are big problems….53

 

The Ukrainian MP, Anton Gerashchenko, speaking on TV Channel News One, stated:

 

The crisis of migrants in Europe arose because of Putin. The war in Syria began in 2011, but migrants flooded [Europe] like a large river in the spring of 2015. Russia made a decision after Europe imposed economic sanctions on Russia: ‘Let’s create problems for them.” They created a problem: $1,000 was allocated for the head of [each] refugee who will be taken from Syria to Europe. A million refugees are a billion dollars. This is nothing to Putin….54

 

The cost to Europe, however, is much more than a $1 billion. Gerashchenko added that an atmosphere of xenophobia has been created in Europe along with the growing influence of various nationalist parties, which are known for their favorable position toward Putin’s Russia.

 

CONCLUSION

 

Whatever the causes of the Refugee crisis, Moscow’s strategists have taken full advantage of the situation. Those who know Russian policy best, who are geographically further east, know that Russia has something to gain. If a “smoking gun” is absent, in a strict sense, there is yet a loaded gun. One might say this gun is pointed at the heart of Europe.

 

With regard to proof, the strategist does not wear a white lab coat or follow some academic procedure to understand the world. He is not a prosecuting attorney who has to prove his case in a court of law. He is engaged in “a duel on an extensive scale” – which was Carl von Clausewitz’s famous definition of war. If military and political leaders only acted on the basis of scientific proof – or rely on proofs used to convince a jury – they would not be able to act at all. The soldier and the stateman exercise judgment on a more commonsense level.

 

Consider the following analogy: If it is 2 December 1941 and an American plane spots six Japanese aircraft carriers moving east between Alaska and Midway Island, a sensible strategist would assume that the Japanese were intending to attack the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor. The sensible strategist would be quite foolish to declare that “there was no proof” of a Japanese intention to attack. It would be pedantic, under the circumstances, to say there was “no smoking gun.” Strategy dictates an entirely different epistemology. The reported movement of the Japanese aircraft carriers would constitute a loaded gun, aimed at the U.S. Pacific Fleet. A responsible military leader does not wait for that gun to be fired. An American admiral, drawing the proper inferences, would know exactly what to do. He would alert the fleet at Pearl Harbor and take countermeasures. He would know, as one who directs fleets, that every enemy move speaks to intention. That must be the foundation of his certitude, of his practical knowledge.

 

In terms of the Muslim refugee crisis in Europe: reports of ISIS training camps in Russia, reports of GRU/SVR and Russian Mafia assistance to a massive influx of refugees, reports of Russian infiltration of terrorist organizations throughout the Muslim world, etc., constitute a loaded gun. We must judge these reports as strategists – not as social scientists or academics. This must be the foundation of a new strategic methodology for the Muslim Refugee problem. Clearly, this is not simply about Islam. Russian involvement is indicated. Russian strategy must be understood as part of a greater strategic whole in order to properly assess the larger situation.

12 The former intelligence official was interviewed by J.R. Nyquist on condition of anonymity.

 

13 Katehon’s president is Konstantin Malofeev, a Russian oligarch with close ties to Aleksandr Dugin, previously the co-founder of the National Bolshevist movement (along with Eduard Limonov). This was a movement which combined nationalism and communism (i.e., a Red-Brown prototype movement). More recently Dugin changed his ideological formula, mixing pan-European or Eurasianist ideas with nihilistic metaphysics in order to justify a worldwide anti-U.S. alliance between traditionalist and Marxists. All this is interspersed with a thinly disguised Lenin-style anti-capitalist millenarianism which seeks to hasten the “end times” with the destruction of Carthage (i.e., the United States). Dugin’s pretense at Orthodox Christianity should not be taken any more seriously than his nationalist pretenses. His entire ideology is an arcane justification for a renewed USSR/Third Rome. His enemies are the old enemies of the USSR. His friends are the old friends of the USSR. Dugin’s philosophic sophistication is not to be taken seriously, though his past fascination with Aleister Crowley’s black magic craves closer investigation. Of course, Dugin’s flirtation with esoteric ideas has helped to win adherents on the alt-right, particularly among neo-pagans, occultists and Sufis. His supposed positive attitude toward traditional Christianity leads to the conclusion that he is consciously toying with dialectically opposite theologies and ideologies. Using conspiracy theory as a tool to advance his anti-U.S. agenda, Dugin also pretends to support President Donald Trump, making English language broadcasts praising Trump for stopping globalism and “the expansion of liberal ideology.” Dugin also praises Alex Jones and Infowars. To watch Dugin’s English language broadcasts, see – “The Mystic Shaping Russia’s Future and Bringing Back the Dark Ages, https://godsandradicals.org/2017/03/28/the-mystic-shaping-russias-future-and-ending-the-modern-era/.
