Hamas Terrorist Front Group, CAIR Asks Pentagon to Fire Another Anti-Terrorism Trainer, Reza Kahlili


Reza Kahlili

CAIR is continuing its attack of the former double agent Reza Kahlili. For security reasons his name is a pseudonym.

 

CAIR is an Islamist organization and a part of the Muslim Brotherhood umbrella in North America. Whenever CAIR perceives an individual or group is on the verge of showing the public the true nature of purist Islam subscribed to by organizations such as CAIR they go on the propaganda and lawfare attack to besmirch one’s character.

 

This is definitely the case of Reza Kahlili!

 

Below is an article found on sharia unveiled; however I am switching the order of the posts content. Sharia unveiled placed the pro-CAIR PR Newswire complaint on Kahlili then followed it by Kahlili’s response. I believe it sets the tone better to do it the other way around.

-The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, demands the Department of
Defense drop me as a lecturer at the Joint Counterintelligence Training
Academy.

 

A Monday press release said CAIR sent a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta requesting the dismissal of Reza Kahlili, my pseudonym, “who wrote on an Islamophobic hate site that he renounced Islam and began the quest to find the real God.”

 

It cited articles I wrote referring to Iranian agents who had coordinated operations out of American mosques and Islamic centers and warning that Iranian agents have infiltrated the United States through the “Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Student Association.”

 

“This is yet another unfortunate example of our nation’s military and counterterrorism personnel being trained by individuals who weaken America’s security by promoting their own religious and political agendas,” wrote CAIR national Executive Director
Nihad Awad in his letter.

 

CAIR’s attack surprises me. In becoming a spy for the CIA while a member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, I not only risked my life but those of my loved ones to protect the security of America and the free world and raise awareness of the brutality Iranians suffer under a regime that has no mercy, even for women and children.

 

As an American citizen, I have the right to convert to whatever religion I wish. I converted to Christianity, finding love and the true God. How is that Islamophobia? Or does CAIR support laws such as those in Iran where converts can be imprisoned or executed for renouncing Islam and finding Christ? Should I be persecuted in the United States because I am now a Christian?

 

My activity, which CAIR wants censored, focuses on Iranian human rights and the vicious violations of basic decency committed by a tyrannical regime, brutality that has been documented by human rights organizations worldwide.

 

But more importantly, the Islamic regime, along with its proxies, seeks to destroy Israel and poses a major threat to America and the free world.

 

Shouldn’t CAIR be more interested in protecting the sanctity of the mosques and, therefore, value my information on how Iranian agents are abusing such worship sites? Or is just stating such facts considered a crime by CAIR and automatically constitutes
Islamophobia?

 

Perhaps CAIR does not know that I do not teach about Islam at the Counterintelligence Training Academy. I teach on the activity of the Revolutionary Guards and its intelligence operation.

 

Does CAIR approve of the Islamic regime in Iran? Does it support imprisonment and torture of men and women who seek freedom? Does it approve of the tens of thousands of executions of political prisoners since the 1979 revolution? Human Rights Watch warned that state hangings in Iran this year could reach more than 1,000.

 

Does it approve of execution of minors, the rape of children or the stoning of women on the charge of adultery? Does CAIR approve of cutting off hands and feet for stealing? Does CAIR approve of a man having four wives with no legal rights for the women? Does it approve of lashings for women who do not completely adhere to Islamic hijab?

 

Does CAIR dispute Iran’s support with its terrorist proxies, Hezbollah, Islamic jihad and others or the murderous regime of Syria’s Bashar Assad? Does it dispute that international courts seek the prosecution for terrorist activities committed by members of the Islamic regime, including the current defense minister, Ahmad Vahidi, who is wanted by Interpol for the Jewish Community Center bombing in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1994.

 

Perhaps CAIR does not know that I worked for the CIA – not only in Iran but in Europe – and with Iranian agents within a mosque. Perhaps CAIR does not know that much of the information that is not disclosed in my articles for security purposes is then given to the FBI. Perhaps CAIR does not know that even today through my contacts with Revolutionary Guard members, I provide information to protect America and the free world.

Is CAIR interested in the security of America, and does it not want to do whatever it can to weed out terrorists posing as ordinary Muslims? Does it not hurt the Islamic community when acts of terror are committed, such as 9/11?

 

I have detailed my life in my book, “Purchase at Amazon – A Time to Betray, and I challenge CAIR to read it and determine whether I promote Islamophobia.

 

So I ask: What is it that has CAIR and the appeasers of the regime so infuriated? Is it perhaps the dream of a free Iran?

 

Reza Kahlili is a pseudonym for a former CIA operative in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and the author of the award winning book, Amazon – A Time to Betray. He is a senior Fellow with EMPact America, a member of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and teaches at the U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA).

Press Release:

 

PR-Logo-Newswire

 

WASHINGTON, July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the Department of Defense (DoD) to drop an anti-Islam lecturer at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA) in Elkridge, Md., who wrote on an Islamophobic hate site that he “renounced Islam and began the quest to find the real God.” (reza kahlili:”Why I Renounce Islam and Choose Christ)(reza kahlili:” WND)(reza kahlili: 8/24/11)

 

That lecturer, “Reza Kahlili,” a pseudonym for a man who says he is a former CIA operative in Iran, also claims that Iranian agents are “coordinating operations out of [American] mosques and Islamic centers,” that Iran already has nuclear weapons, and that Iranian agents have infiltrated the United States through the “Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Students Association.” (Daily Caller, 7/22/12; Washington Times, 10/27/11, Los Angeles Times, 7/6/12, American Thinker, 2/23/12)

 

A program coordinator for Iran instruction at JCITA confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that Kahlili is a paid lecturer for the DoD-chartered academy. His lectures are audio-only, allegedly to protect his identity. The newspaper called Kahlili “one of the most influential and outspoken voices in the U.S. advocating the overthrow of the Iranian government.”

 

“This is yet another unfortunate example of our nation’s military and counterterrorism personnel being trained by individuals who weaken America’s security by promoting their own religious and political agendas,” wrote CAIR national Executive Director Nihad Awad in a letter sent to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

 

CAIR chapters in Florida recently held news conferences in Tampa and Pembroke Pines to ask the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to stop using a notorious anti-Muslim bigot as a counterterrorism trainer.

Last month, CAIR welcomed a decision by the U.S. military to stop using a target depicting a Muslim woman wearing a religious head scarf (hijab) and verses from the Quran to train Navy SEALs at the new close quarters combat range at Joint Base Fort Story in Virginia Beach, Va.

 

CAIR also recently called on the Department of Defense to dismiss an instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Va., who taught fellow officers that only a “total war” on Islam would protect America, that they should use “Hiroshima” tactics, target civilian populations, and abandon the Geneva Conventions. The instructor of that course was later relieved of his teaching duties.

The Washington-based Muslim civil rights organization has also called on the Obama administration, the Department of Homeland Security and Congress to provide oversight for apparently widespread anti-Muslim bias in the training of law enforcement, security and military personnel nationwide.

The Pentagon statement of support for Kahlili

 

By Reza Kahlili

July 25th, 2012

A Time to Betray

 

The Pentagon provided TheDC with a statement of support for Kahlili, Wednesday.

 

“We can confirm that Mr. Reza Kahlili, who has specialized counterintelligence expertise, occasionally lectures at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA),” Pentagon spokesman James Gregory wrote in an email to TheDC. “He’s one of many guest lecturers called upon by JCITA for specific subject matter knowledge. His experiences provide valuable insight to trainees, and he keeps his personal religious beliefs out of the classroom. He does not lecture on or about Islam or any religious treatise, and his personal beliefs are his own.”

Iran’s sleeper cells in the U.S.


ACT for America has sent out an info piece to its mailing list that exposes the real agenda of Iran. Surprisingly ACT for America has cross posted via email a LA Times article that is a write-up about former CIA double agent spy Reza Kahlili. I say “surprisingly” because the LA Times is typically a MSM outlet that would normally consider such information as an attack on multiculturalism and as Islamophobia.

Former CIA spy: Iran has sleeper cells in the U.S.

 

Brigitte Gabriel, president of ACT! for America, has been warning about this for years—Iran has terrorist sleeper cells in the U.S. that are working with Mexican drug cartels.

Now, a former CIA spy confirms what Ms. Gabriel has been saying. See the chilling details in the Los Angeles Times story below (highlights added).

Reza Kahlili Former CIA Spy

By David Zucchino

 

Los Angeles Times

 

ARLINGTON, Va. — His disguise consists of a blue surgeon’s mask, sunglasses and a baseball cap that reads “Free Iran.” A small modulator distorts his voice. He uses a pseudonym, Reza Kahlili.

He lives in fear, he says, because his years as a paid spy for the CIA inside Iran have made him an assassination target of Iran’s government. He worries about his wife and children, who live with him in California.

At the same time, implausibly, he has become one of the most influential and outspoken voices in the U.S. advocating the overthrow of the Iranian government.

For the last two years, Kahlili has gone semipublic with a memoir, a blog, op-ed pieces and invitation-only speeches at think tanks. He warns that Iran operates terrorist sleeper cells inside the United States and is determined to build nuclear weapons to destroy Israel. The U.S. should respond, he argues, by supporting the opposition inside Iran.

He travels furtively between appearances, working as a Pentagon consultant and as a member of a domestic security task force.

“There’s probably nobody better on our side in explaining the mind-set of those in power in Iran,” said Peter Vincent Pry, a former CIA military analyst who directs the Task Force on National and Homeland Security. “He understands the ideological sources of Iran’s nuclear program.”

U.S. Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said Kahlili has convinced him of the importance of supporting the opposition and hardening sanctions against Iran.

“I thought I knew a lot about Iran until meeting with him,” King said on a New York political radio program in January. At the time, Kahlili was a guest and King was a guest-host, but the two had previously met in the congressman’s office.

“If you’re going to take this issue seriously, the one person you have to consult with and read his writings is Reza Kahlili,” King said.

In a quiet hotel lounge in Arlington, Kahlili is not wearing his disguise or using his voice modulator for a meeting with a reporter.

“You’d be shocked by how easily agents from the Revolutionary Guard come and go inside the United States every day,” Kahlili says in a near-whisper, bent over a table in a dark corner.

A soft-spoken man in his mid-50s, Kahlili is wearing jeans, a sports shirt and a black coat. He’s of average height and weight, with a smattering of facial hair.

He made certain he wasn’t followed, he says, and performed a quick security check of the hotel.

“They’d kill me if they could find me,” he says of Iranian agents.

Mark Zaid, a national security lawyer in Washington, D.C., said he had confirmed that Kahlili was a longtime operative of a U.S. intelligence agency, adding: “He has insights on Iran most people in the U.S. intelligence community don’t have.”

For covert operatives, clearance agreements with the CIA often prohibit public acknowledgment of the agreement itself or of the CIA. A CIA spokesman, Todd D. Ebitz, said the agency had no comment on Kahlili.

Brian Weidner, program coordinator for Iran instruction at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy, confirmed that Kahlili is a paid lecturer for the Pentagon agency. Other instructors are videotaped, Kahlili says, but his lectures are audio-only to protect his identity.

***

Kahlili says he lived a double life until the mid-1990s, passing along secrets to the CIA and recruiting Revolutionary Guards for the agency. In a sense, he resumed his double identity after publishing his 2010 memoir; he was now a former covert agent who had thrust himself into the public eye.

He rarely leaves home — “my bunker,” he jokes — and shuns social situations.

For years, his mother in Iran berated him for working for a regime she despised; she died never knowing about his CIA spy work, he says. His children know nothing of his background. His Iranian wife was unaware of his spying for years, and was hurt, angry and terrified when he finally told her.

“It took a long time for that to heal, and for her to understand why I did it,” Kahlili says. Though his wife is pleased that he has publicized Iran’s human rights abuses, he says, she has begged him to go back into hiding.

He is pained by regrets. “I put my family in danger without giving it much thought,” he says. “They didn’t know what I’d done, but they were in as much danger as I was.”

The spy story Kahlili tells in his book, and in several interviews with The Times, features coded messages, disinformation, clandestine meetings and international intrigue.

After graduating from USC, Kahlili returned to Iran just before the 1979 revolution toppled the Shah. A childhood friend recruited him into the Revolutionary Guard, where he gained an insider’s access to the new Islamic government — and where he was to turn against the regime.

The Guard executed teenage girls for associating with opposition groups, but first raped them to deny them the heavenly paradise guaranteed to virgins. One of Kahlili’s best friends and the man’s two siblings were tortured and executed.

Eventually, he persuaded his superiors to let him fly to Los Angeles, telling them that his aunt there was ill. He looked up the FBI in the phone book and persuaded two agents to meet with him. They sent him to a CIA handler in London. He passed polygraph exams and returned to Iran as Wally, a secret agent who communicated via coded letters and radio messages.

Kahlili says Iranian terrorist cells inside the U.S. have weapons, explosives, money and safe houses; they use contacts with Mexican and Latin American drug cartels to smuggle explosives and weapons into the U.S.

“They have very detailed information about sensitive sites such as bridges, railroads, airports, military bases, power plants, nuclear sites, water plants, railway stations,” he says.

If the U.S. or Israel attacked Iran, he says, sleeper cells inside the U.S. would launch suicide bombings and sabotage. Iran would attack Israel, and U.S. bases in Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf, he warns.

Kahlili says Iran has intelligence agents inside American universities, Islamic cultural centers and charitable institutions, posing as academics, policy experts and officers of nonprofits. They try to influence policymakers to encourage negotiations in order to give Iran time to develop nuclear weapons.

Kahlili says the Iranian leadership is motivated by Mahdism, the messianic belief that the 12th imam of Shiism, the Mahdi, will one day reappear to establish universal Islam. The trigger is the destruction of Israel.

Sanctions against Iran won’t work, Kahlili argues. “It’s not about the economy. It’s about ideology,” he says.

***

Inside the hotel lounge, Kahlili appears worn and weary. He glances around. He says Iranian agents are trying to find him and his family.

“I have a lot of anxiety — I feel a lot of pressure,” he says. “I feel sick sometimes and I can’t sleep.”

There is only so much he can do to protect his family, he says. “If [Iran] found out about me, we’d be sitting ducks,” he said.

He smiles wanly. “Sometimes I think I should stop,” he says. “I think I must be crazy.”

But in the same breath, he also says the American public must be told about what is happening in Iran and what could happen in the United States. Iran’s regime must fall, he says.

And then he is gone, out the busy hotel lobby and into the night, a man with an assumed name living a life on the margins, running to and from his past.
