Yesterday I receive an email from Ari Bussel sharing an Israel GPO News Update about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addresses a graduation ceremony of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officers.

In that address Netanyahu talks about military/terrorist threats from Hamas in Gaza to the south and Iran building threatening military capabilities toward the north in Syria. Here is that relatively short news release from the Israel GPO:

 

PM Netanyahu Addresses IDF Officers’ Course Graduation Ceremony

 

Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser

20 June 2018

GPO News

 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Wednesday, 20 June 2018), at IDF Training Base #1, addressed an IDF officers’ course graduation ceremony. Following is an excerpt from his remarks:

 

“I do not intend to go into detail about what we are planning vis-à-vis Gaza. The intensity will be stepped up as necessary. We are prepared for any scenario and our enemies would do well to understand this – now.

 

Regarding the Syrian front, we are constantly working to prevent Iranian forces and their proxies from establishing a military presence there. We will not allow those who call for our destruction to turn Syria into a base for aggression against Israel.

 

The iron fist of the IDF is powerfully striking whoever strives to attack us, and will continue to do so.”

 

In America you probably have no clue to what Prime Minister Netanyahu was talking about thanks to the lack of reporting by the Mainstream Media (MSM). OR if they do report, it is some disinformation blaming Israel for violence on the Gaza-Israel border or perhaps an idiotic accusation that Israel is attacking Iranian military assets in Syria especially near Syrian/Israeli border. Even after continued Islamic terrorist attacks by Hamas and affiliates against Israeli civilians originating from Gaza, the UN condemns Israel for reprisals.

 

Here is an example of Hamas/Islamic Jihad/UN hypocrisy:

 

Hamas and Islamic Jihad: Israeli Airstrikes Will Be Answered With Rocket Fire

Terrorist factions in the Gaza Strip, including Hamas and the Islamic Jihad warned Wednesday that Israeli airstrikes on the Strip will be met with rocket fire from Gaza.

 

In a statement released to the media, the factions took responsibility for the barrage of rockets fired at Israel on Tuesday night, which they said was a “response to Israel’s continuous aggression against Gaza,” adding that “the enemy’s leadership will bear full responsibility for its aggression and will pay a price for its arrogance.”

 

Hamas’ Spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum blamed Israel for the current escalation but also added that Hamas is not interested in war.

 

“It (Hamas) will always be ready to carry out its national duty of protecting the Palestinian people,” Barhoum said.

 

Earlier Wednesday, the IAF struck 25 Hamas targets in the Strip in response to ongoing cross-border arson and rocket attacks at civilian communities.

 

Five missiles hit towns around the Gaza Belt district overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday, with at least 13 rockets landing in the Eshkol Regional Council alone. No injuries were reported, but, several buildings and cars were damaged in the attacks.

 

“In response to the rockets fired throughout the night from the Gaza Strip at Israel, IAF fighter jets targeted approximately 25 terror objectives in the Gaza Strip thus far,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement. “The Hamas terror organization targeted Israeli civilians throughout the night with a severe rocket attack and is dragging the Gaza Strip and its civilians down a deteriorating path. Hamas is responsible for everything that transpires in the Gaza Strip and will bear the consequences for deliberately targeting Israeli civilians.”

 

Pertaining Israel/Syria/Iran, here is an excerpt from Eurasia Review:

 

Accessing Israel-Iran Simmering Rivalry In Syria – Analysis

 

By Nagapushpa Devendra

On the other side of the conflict, Iranians have begun to tamp up the rhetorical escalation that has the potential to put these two countries on a path toward open confrontation. From Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to IRGC generals there have been repetitive threat to wipe out ‘Zionists’ which has become a normal jargon in public forums. Though the rhetoric broadened that they will pursue every move with calculation and caution for two major factors.

 

 

This implacable aspiration to wipe out Israel from the map discredits Rouhani government’s claim to not pose any threat to the security and sovereignty of regional countries. In fact, the rift between Rouhani and IRGC widened with the eruption of a heated argument between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Military Commander Mohammad Bagheri over the true intention behind launching retaliatory missiles against Israel. In the argument, Rouhani tried to explain the detrimental effect and international repercussions on the nuclear deal.

 

As the mutual hostility between Israel-Iran has deepened in Syria, Israel stated that their defence forces were on high-alert due to irregular Iranian activities in Syria and have ordered bomb shelters to be equipped in Golan Heights. Shortly, the Syrian state media reported that the government has downed two Israeli missiles near a military base of the capital. Subsequently, another report of Israel attacking targets of the Syrian military on the outskirts of Quneitra in the Golan Heights reverberated across the region. Prior to a week of frequent Israeli strikes, three unnamed US officials stated that Israel is preparing for military action against Iran in Syria, and is seeking US support. In addition, the officials also blamed Israel for the airstrike on a military base in Hamas and Aleppo that killed over 20 military personnel, including Iranians.

 

It seems that Israel has been motivated by the desire to fight sooner rather than later. Israel considers that an attack by Iran, while not imminent, is inevitable, and that delay in attacking would involve greater risk. Usually, this happens, when the balance of military capability is expected to shift in the enemy’s favour, due to the prospects that the opponent will acquire or develop a powerful new offensive or defensive capability. …

 

Israelis firmly believe that Iran as a nuclear emergence state will bring their world to the threshold of the abyss. Probably, this would be the factor for Netanyahu to urge Trump refer to the documents provided by them on the development of Iranian nuclear deal, rather than relying on the reports provided by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). …

 

This led Putin to send Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov on an errand to Tehran where he warned Rouhani about the far-reaching consequences of Iranian retribution to an Israeli strike, not least for Russia and Syria. However, before Rouhani could curb IRGC’s manoeuvrability in Syria, IRGC appears to have fallen for Israeli bait and have launched some 20 rockets at their positions in the Golan Heights. This gave Israel a solid ground to retaliate with the largest strike they have carried out in Syria since 1970 while substantiating it as an act of self-defence which is legitimate under international law. The Israeli said, its targets included weapon storage, logistic sites and intelligence centres used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. Additionally, they have also destroyed five Syrian air-defence batteries after coming under heavy fire.

The Gaza Clashes: What’s Really Happening

 

By DANIEL POMERANTZ 

 APRIL 9, 2018

HonestReporting

Since March 30, there have been intermittent protests, riots, and even armed attacks at the Gaza border.

 

Much of the media coverage has been so poorly informed or even outright misleading, that it can be almost impossible to understand what’s really happening. Israel has, in many cases, been made out to be a violent aggressor intentionally killing peaceful protesters.

 

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

 

That’s why HonestReporting will be actively monitoring, analyzing and communicating throughout these events.

 

Here, for your use and information, is what we’ve seen so far:

 

Re-cap of events

 

  • On April 1, we posted this explanation and analysis of the events up to that date. It was immediately clear that the “protests” also included molotov cocktails, burning tires, rock throwing, and in one case even live gunfire at the IDF.  There were ongoing attempts by rioters to breach the border fence and enter Israel.

 

  • Of the 30,000 Palestinians present, 16 were reportedly killed by IDF sniper fire. The figure later increased to 19.

 

  • It was well known since April 1 that at least ten of the casualties had clear affiliations to terror groups, including Hamas. An analysis of open-source information from Palestinian media brought that number up to 15, and HonestReporting was the first to publish that new information on April 5.

 

  • Another protest/riot on April 6 brought 20,000 people and new violence: including the burning of what may have been 10,000 tires, and further attempts to both attack IDF soldiers and to  infiltrate Israel under the resulting smokescreen. Meanwhile, and this is not a joke, Hamas is now blaming Israel for what it claims is a “shortage” of tires in Gaza. Seriously. You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

 

Palestinian Protesters

 

  • A number of Palestinians criticized Hamas for publicizing the deaths of its members, including holding military funerals and rallies. The main objection can be summarized as follows: by revealing that so many of the deaths were actually terrorists, Hamas undermines the PR illusion that this was a “peaceful protest.”

 

 

International investigations?

In the meantime, numerous international parties, including UN Secretary General António Guterres and EU chief Federica Mogherini have begun calling for an international investigation into the actions of the IDF.  Whether Israel adequately investigates itself, and whether the allegations have sufficient gravity are likely to be the key issues in determining whether the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutes a case.

 

If the ICC does prosecute a case, Israel is not the only party under the microscope:  Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda has noted that Hamas or other Palestinian bodies could be subject to investigations related to war crimes for their use of civilians in covering violent activities.

 

The UN and EU, on the other hand, are primarily political bodies and can choose to launch their own investigations merely if their members wish to: without any regard to standards of international law.

 

When the dust settles and the burning-tire-smoke clears, international investigations will likely be the big remaining question.

 

In the meantime, the IDF has already appointed Brig. Gen. Moti Baruch, head of the General Staff’s Doctrine and Training Division to lead the IDF’s own investigation.

 

The latest updates

 

Some of the critical facts and images from Friday’s flare-up have made the mainstream news, yet some of the most informative have remained conspicuously absent.

 

Take, for example, this image round-up by Israellycool’s Aussie Dave: including telling, often dramatic pictures of events, some of which have not been published by any international news source.

 

Another telling scene was captured in this photo of a swastika flying alongside Palestinian flags, with tire-smoke all around:

 

 

 

 

A few nay-sayers on Twitter tried to claim the image was photo-shopped, until they came face to face with this video of the same:

http://s22592.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/WhatsApp-Video-2018-04-06-at-21.41.40.mp4?_=1

And speaking of tire-smoke: in this particularly shameless tweet, the Palestine diplomatic office in the US preposterously claims that Hamas’s own tire-fire is actually an Israeli nerve agent.

 

 

Here is some additional video of tires and fires throughout the area.

 

Next time you hear about Palestinians throwing “stones,” keep in mind that in at least some cases, this is what they are really talking about:

 

 

Just outside Gaza, JPost’s Seth Frantzman caught up with Richard Kemp, former commander, British forces, Afghanistan. Kemp took the media to task pointing out that they don’t necessarily fully understand events even if they’re physically close up. Specifically, Kemp clarified that this is not a “peaceful demonstration” as is often portrayed by the media but rather:

 

…a deliberate and specific intent by a major terrorist organization, recognized around the world as terrorists, to penetrate the border of the State of Israel.

 

Arab world reacts

 

Though reactions are mixed, at least some residents of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan and other Arab countries, took to social media to lambaste Hamas for its exploitation of the inhabitants of Gaza. Meanwhile, despite a show of support at the official level, it seems Palestinians in the West Bank were largely apathetic to the events in Gaza. Notably, top Palestinian Authority cleric Mahmoud al-Habbash declared:

 

[Hamas is] sending Gazans to their deaths for good headlines… [is] trading in suffering and blood [and] no longer fools Palestinian people.

 

And though it’s not in the Arab world, as long as we’re talking reactions we should give credit where it’s due: Reuters was one of the few publications to ask Israelis living near Gaza what they think. Here’s one example:

 

“I’m sorry about what is happening there. I know the situation is very, very difficult,” Israeli farmer Daniel Rahamim said about economic hardship in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave ruled by Hamas, an Islamist group that advocates Israel’s destruction.

 

“But I don’t talk about a peace deal anymore. Maybe we can achieve a long-term ceasefire,” Rahimim, 63, said as he irrigated his crops. He said his 24-year-old daughter, still “traumatized by rockets” left the area after the demonstrations started.

 

Finally, if there was any doubt about the real point of these protests and riots, Hamas leader Yehya Al-Sinwar was crystal clear:

John Bolton’s Appointment Rattles The Muslim Brotherhood Echo Chamber


Act for America emailed an excerpt of an article from The Federalist with the email subject line “The Muslim Brotherhood is Rattled”. The Federalist article by Ben Weingarten highlights that John Bolton’s appointment as National Security Advisor has rattled the transnational Islamic terrorist organization the Muslim Brotherhood (aka Ikhwan to many Arab speaking people) because Bolton has had the correct assessment that the terrorist network indeed should be on the State Department’s designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

 

Here is the Act for America email intro:

 

The left has made it their mission to smear anyone who opposes violent jihad, and cast them as “Islamophobic.” Recently, former ambassador John Bolton has been the target of such attacks because of his appointment as National Security Advisor (NSA) to the President. This is not only an attempt to discredit John Bolton, it is an attempt to protect the Muslim Brotherhood from finally being designated a terrorist organization.

 

As patriotic American’s we must stand up and not only support the appointment of Ambassador John Bolton, but also tell Congress it is time, once and for all, to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. Click here to tell your local Members of Congress enough is enough.

John Bolton’s Appointment Rattles The Muslim Brotherhood Echo Chamber

The Trump administration ought not to concede one inch to those who wish to sideline the personnel and stifle the policies that would make its counterjihadist agenda a reality.

 

By Ben Weingarten

APRIL 5, 2018

The Federalist

 

The attacks on former ambassador John Bolton following his appointment as National Security Advisor (NSA) have inadvertently served as some of his strongest endorsements.

 

First there were the hysterical cries of “neocon warmonger!” This would come as news to the NSA-designate, who was never a “liberal mugged by reality” but a self-identified “Goldwater conservative” from the start; explicitly rejects the belief in democracy-building as imperative to achieving America’s national interest under democratic peace theory; and suggests, exaggerating for effect, that following the removal of Saddam Hussein, as soon as practicable he would have told the Iraqis, “You’re on your own. Here’s a copy of the Federalist papers. Good luck.”

 

Although the “neocon warmonger” moniker is inapt, to say the least, maybe it is not such a bad thing if our enemies buy this line. In fact, this may be part of President Trump’s strategic rationale as a dealmaker for elevating a “peace-through-strength” realist portrayed as a cantankerous cowboy to the top of the National Security Council.

 

Then followed another narrative: Bolton is not only a real-life Dr. Strangelove, but worse. He is actually an adroit bureaucrat—“crazy and dangerous.” Then-senator Joe Biden, a man prone to malapropism, actually put it best when, in Bolton’s retelling, Biden said of him in 2005: “My problem with you, over the years, has been, you’re too competent. I mean, I would rather you be stupid and not very effective.”

 

But the truly revelatory attacks concern Bolton’s positions on Islamic supremacism, which reflect an understanding that jihadists pose a mortal threat that must be countered using every element of national power. You know these attacks are meaningful partly because they have been made under cover of a smear campaign.

 

Opposing Jihadis Isn’t the Same as Opposing Islam

 

Bolton has been cast as an “Islamophobe” for the thought crime of being a counterjihadist who supports other counterjihadists. The charge of “Islamophobe” is a baseless, intellectually dishonest, and lazy slur. Although it does not deserve to be dignified with a response, it goes without saying that there is nothing to indicate Bolton harbors an irrational fear of Islam, and everything to indicate he holds the very rational belief that we must defeat Islamic supremacists who wish to subject us to their tyrannical rule or destroy us.

 

“Islamophobe” is being lobbed at Bolton to try and discredit him and ultimately scuttle policies he supports intended to strike at the heart of Islamic supremacism. The “tell” is that the articles raising such accusations frequently cast counterjihadist policy positions themselves as de facto evidence of Islamophobic bigotry.

 

As the representative par excellence of the position that America should exit the Iran deal, it should come as no surprise that the Iran deal echo chamber in exile has sprung into action in savaging the ambassador with the most outlandish of insinuations. For the Islamophobia campaign, the lesser-recognized and perhaps more insidious Muslim Brotherhood echo chamber has been activated. Bolton is on record as supporting its designation as a terrorist organization, and Brotherhood apologists and true believers cannot abide this.

 

Either We Work With Terrorists or We Don’t

 

Recall that the national security and foreign policy establishment has long held that as a “political Islamist” group, the Muslim Brotherhood ought to be treated as a legitimate diplomatic partner. The theory is that we have to choose between violent and seemingly peaceful Islamic supremacists, ignoring the fact that their differences are tactical and strategic, not ideological. They are all still Islamic supremacists.

 

Most infamously, the Obama administration supported the ascension of Mohamed Morsi, leader of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, to president during the Arab spring, with predictably horrific consequences in particular for the nation’s Christians that persist even in the era of the much-maligned counterjihadist Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

 

Such disastrously naïve policy pushes ignore that the Muslim Brotherhood is the tip of the Sunni jihadist spear. It’s the ideological fountainhead from which violent jihadist groups from Hamas to al-Qaeda and ISIS spring. The “political” element of the Muslim Brotherhood is, if anything, more pernicious precisely because its adherents do not goose-step, guns in hand, in the public square.

 

No, the political arm engages in political and ideological warfare, tactfully seeking to impose its will through policy and subterfuge. “Social welfare” activities provide a convenient cover for the group’s ultimate aims. As the Brotherhood put it in its 1991 Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America:

 

The Ikhwan [Muslim Brothers] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

 

On account of the Brotherhood’s nature and activities, it has been designated as a terrorist organization from Egypt to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. A bill first introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz in 2015, calling for the U.S. secretary of state to submit a report to Congress on designating the Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization in America, lays out several other reasons the group merits this, including:

 

The [group’s] explicit calls for violent jihad, with the end goal of imposing Islamic law over all the world of the group’s founder and spiritual leader Hassan al-Banna, and the consistently violent Islamic supremacist content of the Brotherhood’s core membership texts

 

The terrorist efforts of numerous jihadist groups explicitly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the efforts of individual Muslim Brotherhood members designated as terrorists by the U.S. government themselves

 

The litany of terrorist financing cases involving the Muslim Brotherhood, including the…Holy Land Foundation case [the largest terror financing case in U.S. history] …

 

Do What We Like or Get Smeared as a Bigot

 

On the campaign trail and in its early days the Trump administration indicated an interest in designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. But within months it shelved these plans. What happened? The Muslim Brotherhood echo chamber deployed.

 

The Brotherhood undertook an extensive lobbying and information operation designed to dissuade the administration’s plans, reportedly backed by millions of dollars. The U.S. foreign policy establishment quickly proliferated articles and comments in prominent mainstream publications defending the Muslim Brotherhood against charges of being a jihadist group, adding that designated it as such would be impractical and impracticable. Notably, The New York Times went so far as to print an op-ed in the Brotherhood’s defense written by Clinton Foundation-linked Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Gehad el-Haddad.

 

In the midst of this flurry of articles, it leaked to the media that the CIA and State Department both produced memos against Muslim Brotherhood terrorist designation.

 

Concurrently, counterjihadists throughout the Trump administration were subjected to a barrage of attacks. Many would ultimately be sidelined, though some like Secretary of State-designate Mike Pompeo survived. He, like Bolton, is being attacked as an Islamophobic bigot as well.

 

Bolton recognized at the time that these events were not random. During a July 2017 interview he noted:

 

There’s been an amazing campaign. It’s always amazing to me how these stories and op-eds and lines of chatter appear simultaneously, all very well-coordinated…The argument being the Muslim Brotherhood is a complicated organization, not every part of it is devoted to the support of terrorism. Some of them do humanitarian work and so on; a declaration that the entire Brotherhood is a foreign terrorist organization would actually buttress the cause of the jihadis; so, therefore, don’t do anything.

 

Bolton’s riposte?

 

Let’s take the notion inherent in that argument as having some validity, that there are pieces of the Muslim Brotherhood that don’t qualify under the statutory definition we have of a foreign terrorist organization…My response to that is, ‘Okay, we need some careful drafting based on the evidence we have now that excludes some affiliates, some components of the Muslim Brotherhood from the designation.’ I’m prepared to live with that, of course, until we get more complete information.

 

This position is what really draws the ire of the Brotherhood echo chamber. CAIR, the unindicted co-conspirator in the previously mentioned largest terror financing case in U.S. history, published a press release condemning the appointment of “Islamophobe John Bolton” as NSA, citing corroborating articles from such non-biased sources as Think Progress, The Nation, Islamophobia.com, Vox, and Huffington Post.

 

As I have written previously, CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood and jihadi ties are numerous and longstanding, involving not only its founders and present leaders to Hamas, but its harboring of apologists for Islamic terrorism, and alleged impeding of counterterrorism efforts.

 

Bolton’s endorsement of designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization illustrates a keen understanding of the size, scope, and nature of the Islamic supremacist threat that the national security and foreign policy establishment lacks. It is a proxy for a worldview that if followed to its logical conclusion would turn our largely futile efforts to beat back jihadists over the last 17 years on their head. This view takes Islamic supremacists at their word in their desire to impose upon us the Sharia-based, totalitarian theopolitical ideology to which they adhere. Hence the pushback.

 

Applying this worldview would lead to decisions antithetical to the progressive Wilsonian internationalists and political Islamists on myriad issues in the Middle East, including:

 

  • Treatment of Israel versus the Arabs

 

  • The Iran deal

 

  • Iran policy more broadly, including appropriate measures against its proxies in Syria and Lebanon

 

  • Qatar’s bellicosity

 

  • Turkey’s behavior under Islamic supremacist Erdogan

 

The Trump administration ought not to concede one inch to those who self-evidently wish to sideline the personnel and stifle the policies that would make its counterjihadist agenda a reality. This specious and slanderous smear campaign reflects all the better on the appointment of Bolton as NSA.

State Department Hosts Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups


One of the things that sealed the deal for me to vote for Donald Trump in 2016 was his anti-Islamic terrorism and anti-Muslim immigration stand. I have recently become convinced that President Trump’s National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is removing pro-Trump people from the National Security Council (NSC). What’s up with that?

 

Now I am finding out President Trump’s Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is schmoozing with radical Islamists that hate America and Israel. What’s up with that?

Here are the radical Muslim details from Freedom Outpost.

State Department Hosts Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups

 

By TIM BROWN 

AUGUST 12, 2017

Freedom Outpost

 

While President Donald Trump is but one man, he was very vocal about Islam and speaking out against it, but it appears that those he chose to fill positions in his administration just don’t have the same mindset, and the latest to demonstrate this is Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, as he hosted designated terror organization and Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), along with other Muslims Brotherhood front groups at the State Department on Thursday.

 

Jordan Schachtel at Conservative Review that the meeting with State Department representatives to discuss the ongoing situation in Jerusalem was posted by the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP).

 

Schachtel writes:

 

The delegation was brought together by an umbrella conglomerate of Islamist outfits known as the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). They went to the State Dept. to discuss the “ongoing Al-Aqsa Mosque crisis and Israel’s denial of religious freedom in Jerusalem, which is holy to the three Abrahamic faiths,” the AMP website said.

 

In July, Palestinian terrorists stormed outside the Al-Aqsa mosque compound and assassinated two Israeli police officers, setting off a diplomatic firestorm that would result in Israel securing the facility with metal detectors (which would later be removed due to international pressure).

 

Represented at the meeting included a CAIR official and members of other suspected Muslim Brotherhood front groups, such as the Islamic Circle of North America and the Islamic Shura Council of North America.

 

The delegation included Osama Abu Irshaid, a leader at AMP and an open supporter of Hamas. Terrorism expert Steven Emerson reported that he once served as the editor of “Al-Zaitounah” periodical, which Emerson describes as “pro-Hamas propaganda.”

 

Emerson has compared AMP as a whole to a “Hamas-support network” that mimics the Hamas-funding organizations that federal prosecutors shut down during the George W. Bush administration.

 

Islamic expert and author of numerous books on the subject, Robert Spencer wrote, “This is the kind of thing that should have ended with the inception of the ‘Drain the Swamp’ administration.”

 

“Unfortunately, Trump appointed too many people who did not share his vision, and so that vision is not being implemented, and Obama holdovers are still in charge,” he added.

 

All of these groups are known Muslim Brotherhood front groups who want Islam to dominate the world.

 

They have the same ideology as Herman Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch, does when he announced:

 

“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.”

 

Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, who was a part of the delegation to the State Department, once called for Islamic law to dominate the world, declaring: “Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction.”

 

Additionally, what many fail to remember regarding the Palestinians is that the Palestine National Charter of 1964 states:

 

We, the Palestinian Arab people, who believe in its Arabism and in its right to regain its homeland, to realize its freedom and dignity, and who have determined to amass its forces and mobilize its efforts and capabilities in order to continue its struggle and to move forward on the path of holy war (al-jihad) until complete and final victory has been attained.

 

In 1988, Hamas formed its own covenant in which it cites Imam Hassan al Banna:

 

Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.

 

Nothing in this has changed! Not one word.

 

Now, look, I’m not Zionist by any stretch of the imagination [Blog Editor: In full disclosure, I consider myself a Christian Zionist fully supporting the existence of Israel as God’s plan], but when you have people who have put in print that they seek the utter destruction of an entire state and its people, and on top of that, their fellow brothers in the “hood” (Muslim Brotherhood) are literally Hell bent on taking over the US and the West in the name of the false prophet Muhammed and Allah, then there is a serious issue there.

 

While Trump has backed the idea of doing what the United Arab Emirates did and designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terror organization, Tillerson has done everything he can, just like H. R. McMaster to whitewash Islam and engage in taqiyya on the behalf of Islamists by seeking to block such efforts.

 

“There are elements of the Muslim Brotherhood that have become parts of governments,” he said, pointing out parliaments in Bahrain and Turkey as examples.

 

“Those elements… have done so by renouncing violence and terrorism,” he said.

 

“So in designating the Brotherhood in its totality as a terrorist organization… I think you can appreciate the complexities this enters into our relations with [governments in the region],” said Tillerson.

 

Nope, I can’t see the complexities, especially in light of the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood, which are to destroy the West and claim it in the name of Allah.

 

Tillerson is just demonstrating he is a stooge for Islam, just like others before him.

 

Welcoming these people who hold to these doctrines of demons into our places of government is not only a bad move, but in my opinion is dangerously close, if not over the line, to treason.

Muslim Invasion Killing Norway & Sweden


Could Multiculturalism bring the Same Invasion to the USA?

 

John R. Houk

© July 27, 2017

 

I found a Fjordman essay at the Gatestone Institute. Fjordman writes about how the influx of Muslim refugees/immigrants into Norway and Sweden will soon relegate the original cultural inhabitants into a subordinate minority.

 

I am American. My guess is that a majority of my readers are Americans. Followed by a minority of Europeans that read or speak English that read American writings because they might be weary of Islam marginalizing their culture. Those Europeans probably read Americans because European Union (EU) rule of law will go after people speaking or writing the truth about Islam. Apparently defending your own culture is a hate-crime in Europe.

 

If you are an American, why should care about the inundation of Muslims overtaking Norwegian and Swedish culture? BECAUSE if Crooked Hillary had won the election in 2016, you could count on an inundation of Muslims bring their Islamic Supremacist culture to the USA in the name of Dem Party promoted Multicultural Diversity.

 

Multiculturalism is destroying Norway and Sweden as a Western Culture, followed closely by the rest of Europe. DO YOU as an American want to throw E Pluribus Unum – Out of many, One – out? Multiculturalism throws the concept of the melting out and replaces it with a divided pot of foreign cultures vying for dominance. Vying multiple cultures essentially destroys American unity.

 

If you toss an Islamic Culture into the concept of Leftist Multiculturalism, it is self-destructive. Especially Islam’s rejection of any culture or thought that is not Islamic as an evil to be destroyed. What do you think happens to the American melting pot with Western-hating Islam?

 

Americans need to think of the answer to that question as they read Fjordman’s on Muslim immigration overrunning Norway and Sweden.

Norway’s Political Elites Cheer for Islam

 

By Fjordman

Gatestone Institute

 

  • If current levels of immigration continue, native Norwegians will be a minority in their own country within a few decades. In some parts of inner city Oslo, they are already a minority.

 

  • Ethnic Norwegians living in these areas are called “infidel whore.” Many feel as if they are strangers in what once was their own country. Yet the politicians and mass media are not interested. The ruling elites are far more interested in cases of alleged “Islamophobia” or “white racism.”

 

  • A report commissioned by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) suggested in early 2017 that the Muslim Brotherhood is secretly leading Islamic groups in building a parallel society in Sweden by infiltrating organizations and political parties in the country.

 

Ramadan is supposed to be an Islamic holy month of fasting. In reality, as one is thought to be doubly rewarded in paradise for deeds “fighting corruption” during Ramadan, it is a month of “jihad and victories.”

 

It therefore nearly always leads to an increase in jihad violence in different parts of the world.

 

Breitbart News counted at least 1,620 people killed by militant Muslims during Ramadan in 2017. Most of these were killed in Muslim-majority countries. However, deadly Islamic terrorist attacks also hit Western cities such as London.

 

When dealing with Muslim terror, it can be useful to separate it into two different, categories: Big Terror and Little Terror. Big Terror includes mass casualty attacks such as suicide bombings. Little Terror includes other forms of violence and harassment, such as torching cars, that have a negative impact on daily life. Both forms of terror are intended to spread fear.

 

France suffers from tens of thousands of car fires every year. Sweden, which has the highest number of Muslim immigrants in Scandinavia, also has the highest number of car fires. In the Muslim-dominated Swedish city of Malmö, cars are now torched on a nearly daily basis.

 

In June 2017 during Ramadan, dozens of instances of wheel-tampering were reported in different police districts in Denmark. In all cases, the lug nuts that secure the wheels of a car had been loosened. One motorist was driving along when he heard an odd noise. Shortly afterward, his left front wheel appeared in front of the car and rolled off into a field. The car ended up in a ditch; the man, in a hospital. The police have so far been unable to find the perpetrators. They have been advising all motorists thoroughly to check their lug nuts before starting their car.

 

In June 2017, Oslo, Norway, experienced a significant number of car fires within a few weeks. Officially, the police claimed they could see no connection between these fires, which spiked during Ramadan and mainly took place in Muslim-dominated areas. Anonymous sources claimed that a group of young immigrant men – who had apparently been complicit in the burnings — had shouted: “We’re going to make Malmö!”

 

If current levels of immigration continue, native Norwegians will be a minority in their own country within a few decades. In some parts of inner-city Oslo, they are already a minority. The author Halvor Fosli, in 2015, published a book in which he interviewed ethnic Norwegians living in those areas. They are called “infidel whore.” Many feel as if they are strangers in what once was their own country. Yet the politicians and mass media are not interested. The ruling elites are far more interested in cases of alleged “Islamophobia” or “white racism.”

 

Erna Solberg, Norway’s supposedly conservative Prime Minister, has long been known for her positive views of Islam and mass immigration. As PM, she has repeatedly warned against Islamophobia and Christian “racism” against Muslims. In 2011, then as leader of the major opposition party, Solberg stated that Muslims in Europe are now being harassed just as Jews were in the 1930s, during the rise of Nazism.

 

On June 25, 2017, an estimated 8,000 Muslims celebrated Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan, in a major sports arena and concert hall in Oslo. Prime Minister Erna Solberg attended. She made some comments about creating a sense of community, and warned against anti-Muslim forces and others trying to divide people. According to national media, many of the Muslims treated the Prime Minister as if she were a “superstar.”

Cemal Knudsen Yucel, from the organization Ex-Muslims of Norway, said he was sad to see politicians and media promote Islam and Islamic values on television yet again. As a former Muslim, he has never experienced this kind of celebration in his Muslim home country. There, Eid al-Fitr is normally celebrated with your family, not at a stadium with thousands of people. In his view, this shows how effectively Islam builds power in the society in which it operates. A country’s senior political leader attending a gathering of thousands of Muslims in the nation’s capital city, can only elevate Islam’s status and prominence in society.

 

The Islam-friendly newspaper Aftenposten writes that the Rabita Mosque was a co-organizer of this big Islamic party, attended not only by the Prime Minister but also the national media. The Rabita Mosque in Oslo has for years been involved in highly controversial activities, as pointed out by the author Hege Storhaug. The mosque has been visited by well-known jihadists and its leaders are suspected of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an international Islamist organization with the motto:

 

“Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

 

A report commissioned by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) suggested in early 2017 that the Muslim Brotherhood is secretly leading Islamic groups in building a parallel society in Sweden by infiltrating organizations and political parties in the country.

 

The Muslim Brotherhood, in the 1930s and 1940s, enjoyed friendly ties with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, one of its foremost spokesmen today, has stated that Allah sent Hitler to punish the Jews, and indicated that the next genocide of Jews will be at the hands of Muslims. Qaradawi, a leading advocate of suicide-bombing, has also bragged that Muslims will conquer Europe.

 

Since its founding in Egypt in 1928 by Hassan Al Banna, the Muslim Brotherhood has for generations been involved in fostering those who would promote its expansionist goals. Jihadists and Islamic terrorists who have been members include Sayyid Qutb, Abdullah Azzam, Ayman al-Zawahiri, leader of the Al-Qaeda terrorist network after Osama bin Laden, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of the Islamic State (IS or ISIS).

 

That a mosque with suspected links to such an organization arranged a major event in Oslo — and was applauded by the country’s head of state — is frightening. While a totalitarian Iron Burka of sharia, jihad, terror, and violence is descending on Europe, many Western leaders and members of the media welcome it, embrace it and claim it enriches our society.

 

Prime Minister Solberg’s main political rival, Social Democratic party leader Jonas Gahr Støre, is possibly even more smitten than she is. In 2008, the Norwegian government sponsored dialogue talks in Oslo with members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. Støre, from the Labor Party, was then foreign minister. The prime minister at the time, Jens Stoltenberg, is now leader of the Western defense alliance NATO.

 

The Muslim Brotherhood, which also has ties to, among other groups, the extremely brutal Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas, in 2007 made Norway, under the left-wing Stoltenberg government, the first Western country to “normalize” its relationship with Hamas. AUF, the youth organization of the Norwegian Labor Party, the labor unions (LO) and its coalition partner, the Socialist Left Party, also advocated for this affiliation.

 

The policy of normalizing ties with Hamas was widely applauded by many Norwegian mass media and left-wing activists in 2007. The major Oslo-based newspaper Aftenposten praised it as a “wise” move. When this author strongly objected to cooperating with terrorists, the Norwegian media and left-wing activists, few years later, accused me of encouraging terrorism.

 

Raymond Johansen in 2007 had friendly public meetings on behalf of the Norwegian government with the Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh. In 2011, Haniyeh praised the global terrorist leader Osama bin Laden as “an Arab holy warrior.” In 2017, Ismail Haniyeh was chosen to be the new overall leader of Hamas. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) then called him a “pragmatist.” Between 2009 and 2015, Johansen was the Party Secretary of the Labor Party, Norway’s largest political party for nearly a century. In 2014, he warned in the state broadcaster NRK against the “Fascist” movements now threatening Europe. Did he mean the Muslim Brotherhood or other Islamic organizations who threaten artists and authors? No, comically, Johansen mentioned just me, personally, by name, as a dangerous “extremist” who needs to be confronted. Nobody else. Just me.

 

Raymond Johansen, currently serving as the Governing Mayor of Oslo, has stated that an attack on Muslims is an attack on him. The vast majority of Muslim immigrants vote for the Labor Party or other left-wing parties. Mullah Krekar, a radical Muslim and “refugee” notorious for publicly praising Islamic terrorists and jihadist massacres, has advised Muslims in Norway to vote for Labor or other Socialist parties.

 

The deputy leader of the Norwegian Labor Party is a Muslim woman from a family of Pakistani immigrants. The leader Jonas Gahr Støre, as Foreign Minister, held talks by telephone with the Islamic terrorist leader Khaled Mashaal from Hamas. In a book published in 2014, Støre criticized “Islamophobes” again, including this author.

 

On September 11, 2017, Norway will have parliamentary elections. The voters have a realistic choice between two Prime Ministers: Erna Solberg or Jonas Gahr Støre. Both are Islam-friendly, anti-national globalists and multiculturalists who promote mass immigration. Other European countries such as Germany are in a similar situation: virtually all the establishment political parties are promoting more immigration and more Islam.

 

Fjordman, a Norwegian historian, is an expert on Europe, Islam and multiculturalism.

Danon Chastises UN for Colluding with Islamic Terrorists


John R. Houk

© July 7, 2017

 

Danny Danon

 

I am on the email list of Jewish Voice Ministries. I received an interesting email highlighting info on Israel’s United Nations envoy Danny Danon. Danon was recently elected as Vice President of the UN General Assembly placing him in the unique and rare position to be a significant voice for Israel’s perspective on geopolitics.

 

Email alert goes on to inform readers that Danon is publicly admonishing the United Nations for being in collusion with Islamic terrorists whose sole goal is to destroy the Jewish Homeland of Israel for Arabs that call themselves Palestinians to become sovereign over a land that most of their ascendants were immigrants rather than an inherent population.

 

This makes the pseudo-Palestinians a fake people with very little actual history to the Land God gave to the Jews as a Promised heritage thousands of years ago.

 

Danon’s anger at the UN is placed on the fact the internal body supports the false claims of Islamic terrorists over Israel’s sovereignty and heritage. The legitimized Palestinian Authority (in reality still terrorists), pays money to incarcerated Muslim terrorists and their families. And more heinously the PA has announced the worst Islamic terrorists that call themselves Palestinians – Hamas (SEE ALSO HERE) and PFLP – are not terrorists!

 

The info is great from Jewish Voice, but in honesty the email alert also serves as a fund raiser for their Ministry. I have no problem with that. Ministries have to pay the bills just like the rest of us. (I wouldn’t mind a little support for my blog efforts as well. 😊) So, donate or not, but remain supportive of a defensible sovereign nation of Israel, which a Palestinian State would make difficult to exist.

They [UN] have no shame

Israel’s United Nations envoy Danny Danon slammed the Palestinian Authority (PA) late last week, saying, “They have no shame.”

Quoted in The Times of Israel, Danon was reacting to what he termed “lies and incitement from those who are paying terrorists to kill innocent Israelis.” He added that their claims “will not change the fact that the Palestinian leadership refuses to end their support for terror.”

Danon’s comment came in response to a senior PA official’s claim that Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) are not terrorist groups.

The Palestinian official, Saeb Erekat, reportedly said that Hamas and the PFLP “are not terrorist organizations” and that the key to defeating the Islamic State is to end the “occupation,” the term used by Palestinians in reference to Israel’s presence in land they claim as their own.”

The PA leader’s remarks came at an event called the United Nations Forum to Mark Fifty Years of Occupation which was organized by a pro-Palestinian UN group.

Hamas and the PFLP have both carried out numerous attacks on Israeli security forces and civilians. Less than two weeks ago, the two terror groups claimed responsibility for a knife attack that killed a 23-year-old Israeli border policewoman in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Israel also cited the PA’s payments to terrorists sitting in Israeli jails, to their families, and to the families of Palestinians killed while carrying out terror attacks against Israel as further evidence the Palestinians give aid and comfort to terrorists.

 

Charges of United Nations Collusion

 

Danon objected earlier to the event, held at UN headquarters in New York, informing UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres that some of the billed participants had ties to Hamas and the PFLP. Guterres said the event did not have the blessing of his office.

According to Breaking Israel News, on Wednesday of last week Danon went as far as to say the UN “colludes” with terrorist organizations.

“It is beyond comprehension that UN funds are supporting organizations which aid terrorists and incite [violence] against Israel,” Danon said. “We call on the Secretary-General to intervene immediately and prevent these individuals from appearing at the UN.”

Danon may soon be in a position to have more influence over UN activities. He was elected in May to serve as vice president of the upcoming session of the UN General Assembly. For one year, he’ll chair the body’s meetings, have a say in setting its agenda, and oversee rules and decorum during its sessions. His election is seen by many observers as a major victory for Israel, which has been very vocal in its criticism of what it calls the UN’s long-standing bias against the Jewish state.

 

Stand in solidarity with Israel through your support of Jewish Voice

 

These are interesting developments, which we’ll be watching closely—especially in light of Israel’s new leadership in the UN General Assembly.

The people of Israel need committed friends. And it has been my honor, and a key calling of this organization, to support the Jewish state. Through your prayers and financial gifts, you can stand with Israel—and this ministry—as a friend of the Israelis.

CAIR Works “Tirelessly to Advance the Agenda & Goals of the Muslim Brotherhood & Hamas”


Blog Editor Intro to ‘CAIR Works “Tirelessly to Advance the Agenda & Goals of the Muslim Brotherhood & Hamas”’

 

Edited by John R. Houk

5/8/17

 

This post highlights a Chris Gaubatz interview on a UTT Radio broadcast in which comparisons are made of the objectives of CAIR, ISIS and al Qaeda.

 

I need to mention a relatively new Muslim-American group is talked about called US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO – official about page). Apparently, I have been paying close attention (shame on me) since the group has been around since 2014. Here are a couple of excerpts briefly highlighting the USCMO agenda as compared to the other Muslim Brotherhood related Muslim American organizations:

 

Executive leadership from some of the most prominent American Muslim organizations announced the formation of the United States Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) on Wednesday, 12 March 2014 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The eight founding Muslim organizations participating at the press conference were immediately joined by two additional U.S. Muslim organizations. …

 

 

The USCMO is described as an umbrella organization – and CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad inferred that and more, with his assertion regarding the USCMO that “This is the dream of every American Muslim, to unify the approach, agenda and vision of the Muslim community. … The formation of the USCMO marks the first U.S. Muslim Brotherhood political party, and indeed the first religious identity political party in the history of this country.

 

During the press conference, Nihad Awad indicated his organization CAIR was “proud to join this historic organization, because today is a historic one. We have been meeting for at least one and a half years.” However, the information absent from this discussion by Awad and his colleagues was that the development of the USCMO not only predates the eighteen month time frame, but finds its origins in the Chicago metropolitan area, where the Muslim Brotherhood has successfully built a strategic organizational network for almost six decades.

 

READ ENTIRETY (Genesis of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations Muslim Brotherhood Political Party; By Center for Security Policy; 5/19/14)

 

And from CounterJihad.com:

 

 

In March of 2014, a new group formed with the aim of uniting a coalition of Muslim organizations: the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). USCMO came into the spotlight more recently with the launch of their 2016 political campaign, “One America.” The campaign followed on the heels of a December 2015 emergency summit of over 100 mostly Muslim leaders who sought to offset a Muslim image crisis after GOP nominees’ unfavorable – albeit often true – remarks about some Muslim communities.

 

Reading Between the Lines of USCMO’s “One America” Campaign

 

The “One America” campaign calls for mobilizing one million new Muslim American voters, cultivating dialogue with elected officials, along with increased open-house days at mosques across the country. …

 

 

… Furthermore, the Islamist group supports the agenda to manipulate language, which now includes denying the existence of radicalization.

 

When USCMO talks about ensuring civil liberties, it means ensuring these Islamist groups’ use civil liberties to advance their own cause. In this election year and moving forward into 2017, that cause is defined by challenging the validity of critical thinkers and slandering them through largely unfounded accusations of bigotry and Islamophobia. In almost call cases, Islamist organizations work with counter-productive groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and Wahhabi funded agents to weave a narrative that undermines our number one freedom: freedom of speech.]

 

For USCMO, the Only “Real” Muslims are Islamists

 

When USCMO talks about Muslim Americans rejoining the mainstream community, their vision is a new legion of politically active Muslims who can further ensure their agenda. Secular Muslims, Muslims combative towards Islamism, critical Muslim academics and Muslim Reformers are not part of what USCMO considers its demographic. In fact, private conversations with both cultural and deeply faithful Muslims shows a disdain for Muslim groups that pander to identity politics.

CAIR Works “Tirelessly to Advance the Agenda & Goals of the Muslim Brotherhood & Hamas”

 

By John Guandolo

May 8, 2017

Understanding The Threat

 

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a terrorist organization.  Specifically, it was created in 1994 by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas in the United States.

 

This week’s UTT Radio Broadcast (30 mins) – which can be heard at www.WorldviewRadio.com – features an interview with UTT’s Vice President Chris Gaubatz who worked undercover at Hamas’ headquarters in Washington, D.C. (CAIR) nearly ten years ago while posing as a converted muslim.

 

Listen to the UTT radio broadcast HERE.

 

In the interview, Chris Gaubatz explains CAIR’s objectives are no different than those of ISIS and Al Qaeda, and that CAIR works “Tirelessly to advance the agenda and goals of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.”

 

Chris Gaubatz testifies before Senator Ted Cruz’s hearing on “Radical Islam and Terrorism”

 

Here are a few of the comments from Chris Gaubatz from the UTT broadcast:

 

“As I testified in front of the U.S. Senate, the Muslim Brotherhood is no different than Al Qaeda and the Islamic State.  They have the same goals, which is to establish an Islamic state under sharia…Whether its jihadi groups all over the world, the Islamic State, Al Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood, specifically Hamas in this case with CAIR, they all say that they’re muslims waging jihad to establish an Islamic state under sharia…My workspace (at CAIR) was right outside the office of Nihad Awad, the Executive Director of Hamas doing business as CAIR, and Ibrahim Hooper’s office was right next door to Nihad’s office.  So I had daily interactions with them.”

 

Chris Gaubatz undercover at Hamas headquarters with U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leader and Hamas (CAIR) Executive Director Nihad Awad

 

“I was able to see exactly how they (CAIR) go about doing what they do, which is ultimately civilization jihad.  They want to destroy Western civilization from within per their own goals and documents, and I was able to witness that daily.”

 

In the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history – US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), Dallas 2008 – which was the culmination of a 15 year FBI investigation, the FBI and the Department of Justice entered into evidence a “wide array” of testimonial and documentary evidence expressly linking CAIR to Hamas.

 

See UTT’s CAIR is Hamas brief sheet HERE.  Hamas is a designated terrorist organization per the United States government.  See the Department of State’s designation of Hamas HERE.

 

Yet, despite all the evidence from the HLF trial, the over 12,000 documents Chris Gaubatz pulled out of CAIR’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. as well as the 300 hours of covert video/audio recordings revealing CAIR is involved in fraud, sedition, and terrorism, CAIR continues to operate and CAIR leaders walk free on the streets of America.

 

The book Muslim Mafia details Chris’ experiences and the evidence uncovered.  Purchase a copy today HERE!

 

CAIR frequently appear in the media and is defended by local and national media outlets as a “civil rights” organization.  CAIR organizes “Muslim Capital Day” at state capitals around the United States, influences national policy related to the Islamic threat, attacks individuals and organizations who speak truth about the threat of Islam, and they defend jihadis (“terrorists”) while putting out the propaganda that what “terrorists” do has nothing to do with Islam.

 

Hamas leader Nihad Awad, who is the General Masul (leader) of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, is now steering the MB’s accelerated efforts to prepare for war in the United States through the efforts of the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO).

 

Three things citizens can do to help thwart the efforts of the CAIR terrorists (Hamas) are:

 

  • Encourage local and state law enforcement to prosecute CAIR entities in your state.  If they have no idea where to begin, please refer them to UTT.

 

  • Work to ensure none of the local public entities in your area work with Hamas terrorists (dba CAIR) such as media, businesses, schools, etc.

 

  • Support and defend organizations and individuals being attacked by CAIR.

 

CAIR is a terrorist organization and should be treated as such.
