Why Isn’t the Largest Terror-Funding Case Being Prosecuted?


The Obama DOJ nixed prosecution without credible reason of Islamic terrorist funding by the so-called charity known as the Islamic Relief.

 

No surprise there, BUT what will the Trump Administration and the Trump DOJ do about it?

 

Write the President and your members of Congress (Senate and House) to stir some investigation!

 

The Clarion Project highlights this issue with an interview with Ryan Mauro (about 15 minutes) highlighting potential Islamic Relief criminality.

Clarion Project’s National Security Analyst and Director of the Clarion Intelligence Network Ryan Mauro personally worked on a case that would have been the largest terror-funding case in the U.S. The case involved Islamic Relief, one of the world’s largest Islamic “charities.”

 

After his briefing, three government agencies were prepared to go ahead with prosecution, but the Obama administration declined. Find out why in this interview with Mauro below and see if the Trump administration has picked up the ball.

Gov’t Confirms US Jihadi Cult Under Investigation


If you are a Counterjihad reader, you are fully aware of the existence Muslims of America (MOA) on American soil. These guys are Islamic terrorists with their strings being pulled by its leader Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani in Pakistan.

 

 

The Clarion Project has discovered that the MOA is under an official government investigation. Here’s what CP knows so far.

Gov’t Confirms US Jihadi Cult Under Investigation

 

By RYAN MAURO 

November 26, 2017

Clarion Project

 

States where Muslims of the Americas enclaves are located (Photo: Fox News)

 

A U.S. government agency confirmed in a letter to the Clarion Project that an investigation into a terror-linked Islamist cult named Muslims of America (MOA) is ongoing. The group is known for its “Islamic villages” in North America, with its “Islamberg” headquarters receiving the most attention.

 

The October 19 letter from the Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) states that 10 documents from a previous investigation into MOA must be withheld because “the investigation related to the documents that were referred is still open.”

 

The Justice Department says that releasing the information could interfere with law enforcement proceedings as they concern an “ongoing investigation.”

 

Muslims of America (MOA) used to be known as Jamaat ul-Fuqra when it carried out a series of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil from the 1970s to the early 1990s. The group is led by a radical cleric in Pakistan and claims to have 22 “villages” in the U.S., some of which are known to have been used for basic military-type training.

 

FBI documents from 2003 released by Clarion Project earlier this year state that MOA is was linked to al-Qaeda in Pakistan at that time.

 

The Justice Department letter is referring to a Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) terrorism and counter-intelligence probe into MOA activity possibly impacting the U.S. military. The Clarion Project has received a series of documents from that investigation dated between 2002 and 2004, and the files confirm that concern about MOA’s extremism is warranted.

 

The documents refer to “Islamberg” in Hancock, New York; “Ahmadabad West” and “Ahmadabad East” in Red House and Meherrin, Virginia; “Islamville” in York County, South Carolina; “Hassanville” in Ontario, Canada; the “village” in Dover, Tennessee and one in the state of Washington. Travel to and from Pakistan, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago is also of concern.

 

The NCIS explicitly states that MOA is the “U.S. name” for Jamaat ul-Fuqra and that there are reports of gunfire, including automatic gunfire, at some of the “compounds.”

 

The documents state that “all locations have individuals who are involved with criminal scams to raise money for MOA/JAF,” including worker’s compensation fraud, insurance fraud, credit card fraud, illegal straw purchases of weapons and conversions of semi-automatic firearms into fully-automatic guns. MOA members send the funds to “Islamberg” in New York and/or Lahore, Pakistan for Sheikh Gilani.

 

MOA members from all compounds also travel to Pakistan for both religious education as well as military-style training and operational experience fighting in the Kashmir region of Pakistan,” the document states.

 

Major Activity in Virginia

 

The declassified NCIS documents show extensive MOA activity in the state of Virginia outside of the two known compounds.

 

The Virginia MOA compounds are suspiciously secretive. The documents recount how the compound in Red House behaved after a hurricane in 2004. They refused to grant access to the property for the local fire department and Virginia Power to fix power lines for several days. There are similar stories from other compounds.

 

At the time of the documents’ writing in 2002-2004, life in MOA’s Virginia compounds was known to be very strict. Two families left the Red House compound after televisions were banned. Multiple MOA-affiliated sources have mentioned this ban to this author as well as Martin Mawyer.

 

The Virginia State Police provided information showing that “the group has expressed an interest in harming a VSP [Virginia State Police] trooper if they pose a threat to MOA members in central Virginia.”

 

Members living at the Red House compound were instructed to buy firearms and ordinance every single month “to enhance the defenses of their compound.”

 

The activity at the compound includes paramilitary training, presumably like that seen in videotaped training of women at “Islamberg” around 2002. The investigatory files state:

 

“Reporting to BATF has noted that MOA, Red House, VA, conducts squad-type training in surrounding woods/swamps and that they have made uncorroborated statements that they would fight any law enforcement encroachment on their compounds by use of defensive force.”

 

Suspected MOA members are reported to travel to the area and cash counterfeited payroll business checks. They then disappear. Members also operate convenience stores in the towns outside of the compounds and were looking to buy more land at the time.

 

Infiltration of Local Police

 

 According to the NCIS documents, the person in charge of the Red House compound’s security was a local Orange City Police Department officer.

 

Seized MOA documents show a concerted effort to infiltrate law enforcement and establish security companies as fronts.

 

Infiltration of U.S. Military Bases

 

“Many” MOA members are alleged to have U.S. military backgrounds, the documents warn.

 

The investigators are especially concerned with MOA infiltration of Naval Air Station LeMoore and Fort Irwin in California by at least two “long-time members of the terrorism-tied Jamaat ul-Fuqra/Muslims of America” group.

 

The files refer to suspected MOA members working as a housing contract officer at LeMoore and as a contract administrator with the acquisitions command at Fort Irwin. Concern is also raised about a MOA-owned cab company that may have access to U.S. bases and services performed by a MOA member who is a contractor for Avaya Communications.

 

At the time the files were authored, at least two “long-time members of the terrorism-tied Jamaat ul-Fuqra/Muslims of America” group were known to have worked as a housing contract officer at LeMoore and as a contract administrator with the acquisitions command at Fort Irwin.

 

The two MOA members were from the group’s 400-acre “Baladullah” compound in Fresno County, California that was abandoned after its leaders were indicted for defrauding the state government of $1.3 million in a massive charter school scam.

 

The money is believed to have been funneled to MOA’s leaders in Pakistan. The compound was “alleged to have support terrorism,” NCIS writes.

 

The NCIS was concerned that the MOA members were using their positions to earn “kickbacks” to fund their organization and its leaders in Pakistan.

 

Conclusion

 

Declassified documents since the NCIS papers show that the concern about MOA is ongoing. For example, when the Clarion Project exposed a MOA enclave in Texas in 2014, the report included FBI documents from 2003-2007 with frightening warnings about the threat posed by MOA’s extremism, terrorist history and international infrastructure.

 

A retired federal source confirmed to Clarion Project in April that he was given urgent national security briefings about MOA after 2009 with an emphasis on the group’s acquirement of weapons and tactical capabilities, including training of women and children.

 

Government documents are only released after they have aged. Those who contend that MOA poses no threat point to a gap in time between an incriminating investigatory file and the time of publication. However, the U.S. government’s private assessments of MOA since the 70’s have been consistent. The most up-to-date evidence from declassified files show that MOA is not the “moderate” group it claims to be.

 

MOA members were subjected to a spate of arrests in New York state this year, as reported by this author and Martin Mawyer based in part on their confidential informants inside the group. One reported MOA associate, Ramadan Abdullah, was apprehended with a weapons stockpile.

 

MOA may also be feeling heat because of its long relationship and public support for Hizbul Mujahideen, a terrorist group in Pakistan and Kashmir. The U.S. State Department designated Hizbul Mujahideen as a Foreign Terrorist Organization on August 16, prohibiting any material assistance to the group.

FUQRA FILES EXCLUSIVE: FBI Links Jihadi Cult to Al-Qaeda


islamic-terrorist-enclaves-in-usa-map

I currently don’t have much trust on the integrity of the FBI warped by Barack Obama political hacks. But this bit of info is something Counterjihadists have been alerting America for quite some time.  Namely, that Pakistan’s Jamaat ul-Fuqra (Islamic Terrorists) has connections to al Qaeda and the Fuqra organization in the USA is the Muslims of the Americas (MOA) organization.

 

As you will read the MOA not only has infiltrated American soil but has 22 compounds/villages established across the many States of the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

 

I owe a hat tip to Paul Sutliff who will have Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Project on his podcast live tonight (12/14/16). The podcast is called Civilization Jihad Awareness on Blog Talk Radio. Here is the hat tip email Paul sent to me:

 

This Wednesday I will have Ryan Mauro on my show to talk about the FBI’s recognition that the Muslims of America (MOA) has connection to Al Qaeda. Please join us Wednesday at 6:00pm to 7:30pm. Ryan will be joining us at 6:45.

FUQRA FILES EXCLUSIVE: FBI Links Jihadi Cult to Al-Qaeda

For the first time you can read here the actual FBI documents showing the links between 22 radical Islamist villages in the U.S. and al-Qaeda.

 

December 12, 2016

The Clarion Project

 

fox-tvs-map-of-fuqra-moa-locations

Fox TV’s map of Fuqra MOA locations in the U.S.

 

The Clarion Project has obtained newly-declassified FBI documents from 2003 revealing that the jihadist cult Jamaat ul-Fuqra, also known as Muslims of America (MOA), had ties with al-Qaeda in Pakistan. The group is best known for its network of about 22 Islamist compounds on American soil.

 

The disclosures come on the heels of the release of the Fuqra Files website, an authoritative database of information about the group.

 

The FBI reports show there was a counter-terrorism investigation into Jamaat ul-Fuqra / Muslims of America (MOA) in New York in 2003. One file has the heading, “American Islamic Radicals.” The reports point out, “Prior to assuming the name MOA, JUF has had a profound history of carrying out violent actions to include, arsons, bombings, shootings and assassinations.”

 

SEE THE FBI REPORT HERE

 

The reports warn that MOA serves as a conduit to foreign terrorist organizations, including al-Qaeda and its affiliates in Pakistan. It states:

 

“The MOA is a loosely structured U.S. based organization. Several current members in New York have been convicted of criminal acts to include murder and fraud. Recruitment most often occurs in prisons or neighborhood mosques. Once recruited, some members are selected to receive training in firearms and explosives in Pakistan.

 

While overseas, some of these recruits are then handpicked by high-ranking terrorist operatives, like that of Al-Qaeda, and are sent to receive more specialized training. Upon completing of their training, many of these recruits are ultimately asked to pledge ‘beyat’ [allegiance]. If they do not receive beyat, they become what source information reveals as a ‘friend of Al-Qaeda’ who are called upon no matter where he is living around the world to assist Al-Qaeda.”

 

The FBI reports are substantiated by accounts from MOA-affiliated sources, such as a former member who was on a trip to Pakistan in 1999 to meet the group’s founder and spiritual leader, Sheikh Gilani. He described how he and others met with Lashkar-e-Taiba, an al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group and militants linked to terrorist Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.

 

The Fuqra Files website shows Gilani and MOA have a history of links to al-Qaeda and the group’s allies, including the “Blind Sheikh” responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Sheikh Gilani and MOA publicly condemn the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but claim they were an “inside job” by a Zionist, New World Order conspiracy. Gilani has claimed that al-Qaeda is a puppet of this conspiracy.

 

The FBI New York office specifically focused on a network of front groups in Brooklyn, including several security companies like 786 Security. New York is home to “Islamberg,” the group’s national headquarters. The formation of security companies as a means of acquiring weapons, training and laundering money is a long-standing MOA strategy.

 

The FBI states several businesses in the New York City area are “believed to be shell companies run by MOA members that are used to structure and launder money obtained from illegal activities. It is also believed that establishing these security firms maybe for the purpose of obtaining ‘legitimate’ weapons licenses.”

 

The FBI reports state:

 

“The MOA in New York is involved in continuous criminal activity to include money laundering and wire fraud. It is suspected that the MOA in New York have laundered and transferred money through 786 Security and transported these funds on their person through Canada to Pakistan.

 

It is believed that [redacted] and MOA members located at 786 Security have had direct contact with [redacted] and/or terrorist organizations in Pakistan who provide both moral and material assistance. JUF [Jamaat ul-Fuqra] members also appear to be somewhat of a U.S. based host network used as a point of contact for overseas terrorist cells. The links and/or associations are mostly seen through weapons training.”

 

The files include various files showing how 786 Security was intertwined with other suspected fronts, including several security companies and schools. The files document the financial irregularities of some of these fronts. They state that 786 Security alone had projected sales of $4 million.

 

A brawl erupted between NYPD officers and members of 786 Security in 2003, as recounted in the Fuqra Files’ section on New York.

 

In a 2006 TV news report, the leader of 786 Security, Hussain Abdallah, describes himself as the “mayor” of Islamberg. He admits to the report that his security company has been raided by the IRS. He and a colleague respond to a question about allegations of terrorist ties by saying, “You know it’s a Jewish conspiracy against Islam.” Abdallah says, “it [the allegations] came from the Kosher kids, you know what I’m talking about.”

 

One of the FBI files from 2003 concludes:

 

“Based upon the criminal and terrorist acts committed by elements of the MOA in the past and the possibility that the MOA may provide terrorist organizations with American recruits who will help perform and/or finance terrorist acts within the U.S., [redacted] will attempt to further identify any possible domestic terrorism activities of [redacted] and his businesses.”

 

The Clarion Project’s national security analyst, Prof. Ryan Mauro and Martin Mawyer, president of the Christian Action Network, recently authored a blockbuster report based on confidential sources inside MOA that Sheikh Gilani told the senior leadership to have members arm up in anticipation of raids on their compounds by law enforcement.

 

The election of Donald Trump was seen as the fulfillment of apocalyptic prophecies centered around a final jihad against a Satanic-Zionist conspiracy. These sources expressed deep concern for Mawyer and Mauro and warned them to be on alert. The Clarion Project and Christian Action Network again challenge Sheikh Gilani to publicly, unequivocally and permanently forbid any act of violence against Mauro and Mawyer.

 

Mauro, appeared on FOX Business Network’s “Varney & Co.” to discuss the report and the launch of the Fuqra Files website last week. You can watch the segment below:

Is Obama the Blame for rising Islamic Terrorism in USA?


By John R. Houk

© November 28, 2015

Here are some incomplete thoughts on Barack Hussein Obama from the top of my head. I call my thoughts incomplete because I doubt my memory is complete or exhaustive.

One of Obama’s stops on his apology tour was Cairo, Egypt. There he denigrated the USA and made sure the Muslim Brotherhood was present for his speech. Later Obama abandoned Mubarak who had been a loyal friend to America’s agenda in the Middle East. Then Obama embraced the Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi for Egypt’s office of President who actually won his election by a narrow margin.

I recall Obama has invited Muslim Brotherhood members to talk to the Obama Administration for some kind of meeting (See Also HERE). Also Obama has had Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers as a part of his staff or advisors in some form or fashion (See also HERE).

The current military government of Egypt has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist entity and yet Obama is still hesitant to also add the MB to America’s terrorist list (See HERE and HERE). Now I have found out that a Jihadist defector – Sheikh Nabil Naeem – in an interview with Patrick Poole and Steve Coughlin, has fingered a connection between the MB and al Qaeda. The same defector has insinuated an MB link to wait for it … ISIS. Also Sheikh Nabil announced the MB’s so-called renunciation of violence was a lie.

Obama imported 1,682 Syrian refugees for fiscal year 2015 and officially 10,000 (maybe more) are slated for fiscal year 2016. Since 96% of these slated refugees are Sunni Muslims, the same brand as ISIS claims to be, and roughly 13% are sympathetic to radicalization; can anyone logically believe a hotbed of terrorism is being brought to the USA?

Combine this with the known 82 radical Islamic Mosques (See Below) in America preaching Quranic hatred toward non-Muslims – meaning death to America, no constitutional but Sharia Law – what makes anyone think the common unrest inflicted on Europe will soon be seen in the United States of America? Is Obama support for Islamist organizations and Mosques in the USA the beginning of European-style Islamic terrorism in America?

Radical Mosques in America: Is There One Near You?

The Clarion Project has identified over 80 Islamist organizations including mosques in the United States, resulting in prominent media coverage on FOX News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” and the Daily Caller website.

Watch Clarion Project’s National Security Analyst, Prof. Ryan Mauro, on “Fox & Friends” discussing four of the radical mosques and the need to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization:

Published on Nov 26, 2015

 

Clarion Project’s National Security Analyst, Prof. Ryan Mauro, appears on “Fox & Friends” to discuss its identification of over 80 radical Islamic organizations in the U.S., particularly mosques.

Mauro explains the need to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and the extremism of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia; Islamic Society of Boston; Masjid At-Taqwa in New York and the North American Islamic Trust that owns mosques in over 40 states.

Airdate: November 25, 2015.

The four organizations discussed in the segment are:

o Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia. Shocking video showed its imam preaching that Muslims should be first in line to pick up weapons for violent jihad and characterizing the West as an adversary. The Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center is involved in prison outreach in Washington, D.C.

o Islamic Society of Boston (and its Cultural Center), which have significant Muslim Brotherhood links and extremist histories. A Muslim activist who fled Egypt to get away from the Brotherhood’s radicalism told the Clarion Project how he was shocked to find its ideology at the mosque.

o Masjid At-Taqwa of New York, led by the extremely radical and influential cleric Siraj Wahhaj. In 2011, he advised Muslims to stop talking about sharia because “we’re not there yet.”

o North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), an organization that owns many mosques across the country. The Justice Department says it is an “entity” of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, a sub-division secretly established to support the Hamas terrorist group.

The segment follows the Daily Caller’s creation of a map of over 80 radical mosques based on Clarion’s research. This is about four percent of the estimated 2,106 mosques in the U.S., the news site wrote.

In addition to those 83 sites, there are many other Islamist organizations operating in the U.S. and mosques due to be written about. You can learn about Islamist groups in your state by searching the Islamist Organizations in America section of our website that is continuously updated.

The North American Islamic Trust’s (NAIT’s) website says it owns mosques in 42 states and has stated that it owns the titles to over 325 properties.

Click here for a partial list of mosques owned by NAIT

In January, a prominent Muslim leader in the United Kingdom with links to the Muslim Brotherhood estimated that half of the mosques in America were founded by Brotherhood members.

Senator Ted Cruz has introduced important legislation to help get the Muslim Brotherhood designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The House version of the bill was introduced by Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and is now endorsed by five additional representatives.

We encourage readers to ask their congressmen and Senators (and presidential candidates) for their statements on this legislation and/or their general position on designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group.

There is NO American Way in Islam


Ralph Mauro, S. Doocy, E. Hasselbeck & B. Kilmeade

John R. Houk

I was watching Fox & Friends this morning and was a little surprised about a brief exposé of Muslims of the Americas (MOA) as having ties to Sheik Mubarak Ali Gilani a Cleric leader of the Pakistan Islamic terrorist group known as Jamaat al Fuqra. The Fox &  Friends story began by talking about (a probably NSA) warning for airlines to be on the watch for Islamic shoe bombers then segued into the MOA story. I was surprised because even Fox News shies away from doing news pieces on Muslim American organizations that have enough money to scream civil suit by labeling fact based information as a racist Islamophobic Hate Crime. In fact this Gilani character from his comfort zone in Pakistan has tried to flex those moneyed civil suit muscles in the past and some Counterjihad writers exposed the Gilani-Jamaat al-Fuqra-MOA connections that in America are downright Islamic Terrorist training centers for homegrown Islamic-American terrorism. The Fox & Friends story focused on the MOA in Texas but in reality those MOA “villages” are spread out around the USA and I believe most heavily along the eastern USA. Here is a Fox News Insider write-up that includes info from the Clarion Project:
 
Report: Texas Islamic ‘Village’ Linked to Extremist Group in Pakistan
 
Feb 20, 2014 8:09AM
 
A shocking new report from The Clarion Project details a jihadist enclave in Texas that was investigated by the FBI for possible links to terrorism. The reporter who broke the story, Ryan Mauro, joined Fox and Friends this morning to discuss the details, saying the report is based on declassified FBI documents.
 
Here’s more from the The Clarion Project report:
 
The organization says it has a network of 22 “villages” around the U.S., with Islamberg as its main headquarters in New York. The Clarion Project obtained secret MOA footage showing female members receiving paramilitary training at Islamberg. It was featured on the Kelly File on FOX News Channel in October. A second MOA tape released by Clarion shows its spokesman declaring the U.S. to be a Muslim-majority country.
 
A 2007 FBI record states that MOA members have been involved in at least 10 murders, one disappearance, three firebombings, one attempted firebombing, two explosive bombings and one attempted bombing. It states:
 
“The documented propensity for violence by this organization supports the belief the leadership of the MOA extols membership to pursue a policy of jihad or holy war against individuals or groups it considers enemies of Islam, which includes the U.S. Government. Members of the MOA are encouraged to travel to Pakistan to receive religious and military/terrorist training from Sheikh Gilani.”
 
The document also says that, “The MOA is now an autonomous organization which possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns overseas and within the U.S.”
 
Other FBI reports describe the MOA in similar ways, with a 2003 file stating, “Investigation of the Muslims of the Americas is based on specific and articulate facts giving justification to believe they are engaged in international terrorism…”
 
MOA members believe the holiest Islamic site in the country is located at their Islamville commune in South Carolina. Other MOA entities include the International Quranic Open University, United Muslim Christian Forum, Islamic Post, Muslim Veterans of America and American Muslim Medical Relief Team.

Mauro said that locals recall the camp being set up in the late 1980s.
 
“They are still preaching jihad. They still follow this radical Pakistani cleric that they basically believe is God. And they are a dangerous group and you can see it in the language of the FBI documents that we’ve released,” he said.
 
Mauro explained that the group is mostly made up of American citizens and most of their activities in the U.S. are legal.
 
“They go right up to that line. The reason they’re able to operate in the United States is because the State Department doesn’t consider this group, Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a foreign terrorist organization. They operate in the United States under the name Muslims of the Americas,” said Mauro.

Homegrown Islamic terrorism is a very real threat to American and Americans that Muslims consider the kafir (unbeliever). It is time for not only Americans to WAKE-UP but also America’s political leadership! To be less eloquent: Forget this multicultural diversity crap especially if it threatens Americans and then viability of the U.S. Constitution. AND make no mistake, the theopolitical ideology of Islam is the diametric opposite of the American heritage of the pursuit of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. In Islam life is ONLY for Allah and his prophet Mohammed; liberty is only as it is in absolute submission to Allah and the pursuit of happiness is only set out by Sharia Law.

Swing Those Doors of Ijtihad OPEN


General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi - Egypt 2

General Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi

 

John R. Houk

© January 31, 2014

 

General El-Sisi the head of the Egyptian military and current of head state gave a speech recently that is sure to be controversial in the Muslim world. The speech took place at Armed Forces’ Department of Moral Affairs. Here is a translated paragraph from The Clarion Project that should pique your interest:

 

“Religious discourse is the greatest battle and challenge facing the Egyptian people, pointing to the need for a new vision and a modern, comprehensive understanding of the religion of Islam—rather than relying on a discourse that has not changed for 800 years.” (Egypt’s El-Sisi Boldly Calls For Islamic Reformation; By RYAN MAURO; Clarion Project; 1/22/14)

 

The rest of Mauro’s article looks at the Muslim theological concept of Ijtihad. The theological concept is important because Ijtihad was the method of interpreting Islam’s holy writings and how to implement those interpretations. Apparently it is a process by which Muslim scholars provide a consensus legal interpretation. The problem that Ijtihad presents for Islam is that new Ijtihad interpretations was closed around the 10th century AD. The closed door means Islam stopped updating at about that time in history dooming the religion to a Mohammed-like medievalism, well forever. This is what General El-Sisi proposed to change.

 

I am not a Muslim scholar, rather I am a devout Christian that looks at Islam (really any religion or ideology) through the glasses of Biblical Christian Faith. I and many Counterjihad writers have come to the view that Islam based directly on the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah is a violent intolerant religion and since those writings are considered sacred – especially the Quran as the direct revelation of Allah – Islam will always inspire Muslims that subscribe to what the West calls radical Islam. It is my belief that Bill Warner of Political Islam provides the simplest explanation as to how Islam regards these considered holy writings:

 

 

The Islamic Bible—the Trilogy

 

Islam is defined by the words of Allah in the Koran, and the words and actions of Mohammed, called the Sunna.

 

The Sunna is found in two collections of texts—the Sira (Mohammed’s life) and the Hadith. The Koran says 91 times that his words and actions are considered to be the divine pattern for humanity.

 

A hadith, or tradition, is a brief story about what Mohammed did or said. A collection of hadiths is called a Hadith. There are many collections of hadiths, but the most authoritative are those by Bukhari and Abu Muslim, the ones used in this book.

 

So the Trilogy is the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith. Most people think that the Koran is the bible of Islam, but it is only about 14% of the total textual doctrine. The Trilogy is the foundation and totality of Islam.

 

clip_image001

 

No one text of the Trilogy can stand by itself; it is impossible to understand any one of the texts without the other supporting texts. The Koran, Sira, and Hadith are a seamless whole and speak with one voice. If it is in the Trilogy it is Islam. (A Taste of Islam: The Life of Mohammed, The Sira; By Bill Warner; Center for the Study of Political Islam; © 2010; Page 1)

 

I suspect General El-Sisi will be labeled a heretic or an apostate by the most Conservative Islamic sects that we Westerner label as radical Islam. It remains to be seen if General El-Sisi suggestions will move forward without some kind Islamic civil war especially among the majority Sunnis (Sunnis roughly make up 90% of Islam and the Shia sects represent about 10%).

 

Here is something that should place into context the difficulty of reopening this door to Ijtihad. The most influential elements of Islam in America come from what we call the Radical Islam. Primarily these influences are the Wahhabis represented by Saudi money and the Muslim Brotherhood which is now waging a terror campaign in Egypt due to their favored President Morsi being deposed by the Egyptian military after the Egyptian populace began to riot in protest over Morsi’s pro-Muslim Brotherhood initiative to Islamize Egyptian society and government to the strict adherence of the Quran, Hadith and Sira.

 

Muslim Apologists go out of their way to tell non-Muslim Americans that the core values of Islam is peace and that Radical Islam is an aberration from the “real” Islam. AND yet most of these apologists are often connected to Radical Islamic movements such as Saudi Wahhabis and the Salafist oriented Muslim Brotherhood. Saudi Wahhabi control over 80% of the Mosques in America and the Muslim Brotherhood picks up where the Saudis leave off with a direct lineage to the most influential Muslim organization in America (See Also The Muslim Brotherhood in America). As far as I am concerned Islam in America is radicalized regardless of the deception spouted by Muslim Apologists.

Egypt’s El-Sisi Boldly Calls For Islamic Reformation

Islam, said El-Sisi needs a modern understanding and should not rely on a discourse that has not changed for 800 years.

 

By Ryan Mauro

January 22, 2014

Clarion Project

 

General El-Sisi, the commander of the Egyptian Armed Forces and current head of state, is essentially calling for a reformation in Islam. His bold declaration comes as the Egyptian people approved a constitution in a vote that the Muslim Brotherhood boycotted.

 

The speech, which went unnoticed in the Western media, took place at the Armed Forces’ Department of Moral Affairs. In the speech, El-Sisi said:

 

“Religious discourse is the greatest battle and challenge facing the Egyptian people, pointing to the need for a new vision and a modern, comprehensive understanding of the religion of Islam—rather than relying on a discourse that has not changed for 800 years.”

 

Notice what El-Sisi did not say. He did not say Zionism or Western oppression is the greatest threat to Egypt, nor did he point to a specific group like Al-Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood. He accurately framed the struggle as an ideological one within Islam.

 

When he refers to the “discourse that has not changed for 800 years,” he’s referring to when the most qualified Islamic scholars of that time ruled that all questions about interpretation had been settled. The “gates” of ijtihad, the independent interpretation of Islam, ended by the year 1258. He wants the “gates” reopened, allowing for the critical examination that an Islamic reformation needs.

 

Elsewhere in the speech, Sisi “called on all who follow the true Islam to improve the image of this religion in front of the world, after Islam has been for decades convicted of violence and destruction around the world, due to the crimes falsely committed in the name of Islam.”

 

This is another important declaration. He attributes Islamic extremism to this lack of discourse. He doesn’t blame it on a Jewish conspiracy to defame Islam or describe it as an overreaction to non-Muslim aggression.

 

He is also pre-empting the Islamists’ inevitable attack that he is an apostate by stating that Muslims are advancing Islam by having this discourse and turning away from violence. He takes away the argument from extremists that they are the model of a devout Muslim.

 

The next question is whether El-Sisi has the standing in Muslim opinion to be listened to. For now, the answer is yes. The Egyptian military that he leads has a 70% favorability rating, while the Muslim Brotherhood’s rating is at 34%. He is almost certain to run for president and, at this stage, is likely to win.

 

When the military toppled President Morsi and El-Sisi announced the suspension of the Islamist-written constitution, he was joined by the Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar University, an institution that is basically the equivalent of the Vatican for Sunni Islam. To date, Al-Azhar has not broken with El-Sisi or condemned his remarks.

 

Other influential Egyptians may endorse El-Sisi’s view. In January 2011, former Egyptian Islamist Tawfik Hamid reported that 25 Islamic scholars, including teachers from Al-Azhar, said that Ijtihad needed to be resumed. The 10 points they listed for renewed examination included the separation of mosque and state, women’s rights, relations with non-Muslims and jihad.

 

Calls for reform and ijtihad can be heard beneath the visible surface of the Muslim world. In my own experience, I’ve heard many average Muslims endorse reformation but their views are not reflected in the national leadership.

 

Some of these reformist Muslims want to reopen the “gates” of ijtihad, while others say they never considered them closed to begin with. For example, Tunisian professor Dr. Muhamd El-Haddad, argues, “Daily life has evolved radically since the last millennium, but there has been no accompanying development in mainstream Muslim legal theory.”

 

Professor Ziauddin Sadar of London wrote in 2002 that that Islamic doctrine is “frozen in time” and there are three doctrinal pillars that need reform: “The elevation of the Shari’ah to the level of the Divine, with the consequent removal of agency from the believers, and the equation of Islam with the State.”

 

Those that argue that the “gates” were never closed include Malcolm Jardine, who wrote a thoroughly-researched essay on the topic. In 2006, the U.S.-based Nawawi Foundation published a study by Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah with the premise that Islam “never had a doorkeeper to close it in the first place.”

 

General El-Sisi and the overall backlash against the Islamists may spark what the world needs most: An Islamic reformation. It is not enough to topple Islamists. Their ideological underpinning must be debated and defeated. The determinations of scholars from 800 years can no longer be treated as eternal truth, but for what they really are—opinions influenced by the times in which they were made.

Don’t Sympathize with Antony Weiner’s Wife Too Much


Abedin family Radical Islamic Tree

There’s a Conspiracy there Some Where

The Clintons are an untrustworthy Leftist family that already has had the father/husband figure attain to the Office of President in the USA. The Clintons have a Teflon history of an unsubstantiated but Conspiracy Theory suspected list of having associates and those who may have known too much that might implicate the Clintons in some nefarious deaths.

As I write this it is 2013. Unless President Barack Hussein Obama pulls off America’s first leadership coup there will be no incumbent running for President in 2016.  Just as in 2008 Hillary Clinton is seemingly emerging as the Dem Party favorite to run for President of the United Sates. Writer Danny Jeffrey suspects that even Conservative women will vote for Hillary to get the first woman elected as President. This is one time I pray that this is an inaccurate prediction. Danny’s prediction is sound though. After all I believe Independents swayed the 2008 election to get the first Black person elected as President. Obama had less qualifications to be President than Sarah Palin and she was a Vice-President Running Mate to the Republican candidate.

 

As 2016 approaches Hillary Clinton has the credentials to be President all be it a Leftist President. Hillary was an active First Lady for Slick Willie, a U.S. Senator and a Secretary of State. That is actually a résumé that candidates on either side of the political spectrum would love to possess.

 

Obama has shown the Leftist path has been a disastrous one for the USA. Unless voters and Congress receive a spine by the 2014 election cycle to impeach and convict Obama, America will be stuck with another three years of disastrous Obama Change.

 

Then the first Tuesday in November 2016 arrives and the Dems actually have a cunning credentialed but Leftist female candidate to entice voters with a female gender and a strong-willed personality. I know many Conservatives will disagree with me, but I would hope for Sarah Palin to be the strong-willed Conservative personality to confront the potential Dem candidate of Hillary Clinton.

 

Huma, Weiner & Diana West bylineNow here comes my Conspiracy Theory relating to Hillary Clinton. I speculate that the Anthony Weiner comedic Mayoral run in New York City is a Clinton ploy to garner more sympathy especially from female voters. You see, Weiner’s wife is Huma Abedin a long time upper-level staffer of Hillary Clinton. Huma Abedin comes from a Radical Muslim family AND she has been involved with Radical Muslim journalism prior to working for Hillary. That Radical Muslim connection is the Muslim Brotherhood which is the Radical Muslim power behind many Muslim-American organizations that lie about their moderation because their essence is Radical Islam.

 

Now the weird thing about Weiner is his religious background:

 

Video: IS ANTHONY WEINER (BORN) JEWISH?

 

In Jewish law Jewishness is passed down through the mother and so in the eyes of Jews, Hitler and Muslims (unless Weiner converts to Islam) Anthony Weiner is Jewish.

 

So how or maybe why did Weiner marry Radical Muslim Huma Abedin? Here is some speculative reasoning (denounced by the Left) on Weiner converting to Islam:

 

Video: Did Anthony Weiner Convert to Islam?

 

Related to the video above is some information from SpecialGuest.com focusing on ex-Muslim I.Q. al-Rassooli’s speculation on a possible Muslim conversion by Weiner.

 

There is another speculation that makes more sense to me and it has to do with the practice of deception-misdirection to further the agenda of Islam:

 

Saleha Abedin, Huma’s mother, a leader of the Muslim Sisterhood (Secret Muslim Brotherhood affiliate), did not have a problem with the marriage due to a tactic that Huma is employing. It’s called Muruna and it permits the lifting of all prohibitions in Islam if the objective is to further the cause of Islam itself.

 

Huma Mahmood Abedin Weiner is a practicing Muslim who grew up in Saudi Arabia, and that her mother is a Pakistani living in Jeddah. Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin, is a leader in the Brotherhood’s secret women’s division — known as the Muslim Sisterhood or International Women’s Organization

 

 

All signs point to Huma using a technique championed by Qaradawi himself. It’s called Muruna and it allows Muslims to go to extreme lengths to deceive and convince non-Muslims they pose no threat. One such act permitted by Muruna would be for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man if it furthered the cause of Islam.

 

Perhaps the biggest red flag of all is why Huma – a practicing Muslim – wasn’t disowned by her family for marrying a Jew in the first place.

 

When it was learned that Saleha was a member of this extremely nefarious group, Walid was able to uncover mountains of evidence from news sources – in Arabic – that implicated Huma’s mother as being part of a plot reminiscent of Hitler’s Nazi Germany. Today, much of these connections have vanished. Short of identifying Saleha as the Dean of Dar el Hekma, her tracks have been all but covered. (READ ENTIRETYWalid Shoebat tells us why Huma Abedin, daughter of a Muslim Brotherhood member, would marry Anthony Weiner, a Jew; Bare Naked Islam; 7/4/12)

 

This is the logical explanation of how devout Islamist Huma Abedin married Jewish Anthony Weiner. It probably helped the Muslim approval of the Weiner-Abedin marriage using this concept of Muruna that Weiner is not a practicing Jew but rather one of the deceived Leftist Jews of America that are so secular that they are willing to throw Israel under the bus with the land for peace misconception.

 

Norma Zager on Left Wing American Jews:

 

Recently I had the unfortunate experience of meeting with a group of liberal Jews who believe Israel is some kind of evil occupying government and the poor Palestinian people (actually a figment of the Arab public relations propaganda machine) deserve to have Israel’s land.

 

 

Of course every Jewish person should be dedicated to ensuring it remains a viable Jewish State for so many reasons I would not have enough space to list them. However, when I hear the anger and rhetoric espoused by the liberals I realize what harm the American Jews are doing through this significant divide.

 

 

Giving land for peace has done nothing more than creating new demands for more land with far less peace. …

 

 

J Street and Peace Now have become a powerful voice and are firm in their resolve and anger toward Israel and their determination to ensure the Palestinians a state.

 

 

Each time the Jewish people argue amongst themselves, and each time a Jewish group maligns Israel, the extremists gain more strength. … (READ ENTIRETY [SlantRight.com archive site has a bandwidth limit. When the limit is exceeded one has to wait until the next cycle to read the archives] – Butting Out of Israel’s Business; By Norma Zager; SlantRight.com; 1/7/11)

 

Leftist American-Jews overwhelmingly vote for the Dem Party. They are so blinded by Leftist ideology they do not realize they are voting for a block within the Dems that is supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and even has an infiltrator in Huma Abedin that is dedicated to the genocide of Jews in Israel.

 

Ryan Mauro writing at The Clarion Project does not go as far as I do to suggest there is a Conspiracy Theory behind Weiner’s NYC Mayoral run, Huma Abedin and the Clinton cabal; however he provides enough information that I believe one could draw my conclusions. Mauro even points out that Al Jazeera – the Islamist mouth piece of al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood – is a donor to the Jewish Anthony Weiner. If indeed Hillary runs for President she will build on Obama’s anti-Israel course to the point that Israel may have to look elsewhere for a different ally to survive. Oh wait, global Antisemitism is again pervasive as in pre-WWII days. There is NO other powerful ally to protect the Jewish heritage to their own LAND.

Extremism Found in Journal During Huma Abedin’s Tenure

 

By Ryan Mauro

August 12, 2013

The Clarion Project

 

If Huma Abedin is an anti-Islamist Muslim, then she must explain why she was the assistant editor of a radical Islamist journal.

 

Islam expert Dr. Andrew Bostom, author of The Legacy of Jihad and Sharia, has discovered alarming extremism in an Islamist journal bearing the name of Huma Abedin, former Secretary of State Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff and wife of New York City mayoral candidate, former Rep. Anthony Weiner.

 

The Clarion Project helped bring attention to the Islamist ties of Abedin in July 2012, specifically her family’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and her position as an assistant editor of the Islamist journal from 1996 to 2008. More recently, we’ve covered the donations from an Al-Jazeera lobbyist to the mayoral campaign of her husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner.

 

The publication in question is the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. Originally known as the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs Journal from 1979 when it began to 1995. The Institute was founded by Abedin’s late father and two Islamist colleagues that led the Muslim World League and World Assembly of Muslim Youth, two powerful engines of Wahhabism.

 

Abedin was the assistant editor of the journal for at least a dozen years, from 1996 (the year she began working as an intern at the White House) to 2008. She worked alongside several family members on the publication, including her mother, brother and sister.

 

Her mother, Saleha, has an especially strong Islamist resume, though the overlaps in the Islamist infrastructure can make it confusing. In short, Abedin’s mother is a member of the female counterpart of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Muslim World League. She leads a group called the International Islamic Committee for Women and Child, a subsidiary of a Muslim Brotherhood-led group that is banned in Israel for its links to Hamas.

 

In 1999, the Abedin family journal and Saleha Abedin’s group published a book in Arabic titled “Women in Islam.” This was three years after Huma Abedin joined the journal.

 

The book teaches that man-made law is inherently oppressive towards women, while Sharia law is liberating. According to the text, Muslim women have an obligation to contribute to jihad; apostates are to be put to death; freedom of speech should be conformed to the boundaries set by Sharia and wives must have sex with their husbands on command.

 

The Center for Security Policy has published a 28-page analysis of the book. Page three of the Center for Security Policy analysis states that the organization led by Huma Abedin’s mother “advocates for the repeal of Mubarak-era prohibitions on female genital mutilation, child marriage and marital rape, on the grounds that such prohibitions run counter to Islamic law, which allows for their practice.”

 

Dr. Andrew Bostom found an issue of the family journal from 2000 that states on page 125 that non-Muslims should give up resisting Sharia governance and join Muslims in fighting secularism. It even states that this resistance to Sharia is nearly an act of treason.

 

“In the name of peaceful co-existence and religious harmony, non-Muslims should stop opposing the application of shari’ah by and for the Muslims … Moreover, the Ahl al-Kitab [Christians and Jews] should eschew all acts bordering on treasonable felony but cooperate with Muslims and, as scripturalists, should not support secularism.”

 

And what is the consequence of treason? Look at an issue from 2011 after Huma Abedin left. It explicitly states that treason qualifies as a crime with a specific sharia-proscribed punishment. Left unsaid is that this punishment is death. The other offenses in this category are adultery, defamation of character, alcoholism, theft, apostasy and oppression.

 

This post-Huma issue explicitly states that the criminal justice system of sharia is to be implemented because it prevents chaos and vigilantism. “The Shariah penal code is best. People in societies where the Shariah is not operative have lost total confidence in the penal code of the existing laws, and hence they may resort to what one may call ‘jungle justice,’” it states.

 

The Abedin family journal reiterated that those that fight against the Islamist agenda deserve death in an issue in 2004, Huma’s eighth year at the publication. According to Bostom, page 167 states a summary of Abul Ala Maududi’s position as follows:

 

“Waging war with the Creator and His Apostle is serious for it amounts to a clear rebellion against the Islamic State where the principles of equity, justice and respect for all are established. So anyone who disturbs or attempts to disturb that system of life is an outlaw who deserves capital punishment. Abul-A’la Maududi explains that it does not make any difference whether that mischief is created by criminals or murderers who cause disorder in the settled and peaceful society, or by armed forces who attempt to overthrow an Islamic State and establish some corrupt un-Islamic system instead.”

 

Maududi is the founder of the Pakistani Islamist group, Jamaat-e-Islami. The Abedin family journal teaches that this radical thinker is a foremost authority and his words are to be followed today.

 

If Huma Abedin is an anti-Islamist Muslim, then she must explain how she reconciled her involvement with an Islamist journal. More importantly, the U.S. government must explain whether any of this was taken into account when granting her a top-secret security clearance.

Pastor Bob Roberts Embraces Radical Islam for his Church


Bob Roberts - Texas Pastor supporting Radical Islam 2

John R. Houk

© June 13, 2013

 

Ever heard of Pastor Bob Roberts of Northwood Church of Keller, TX? Well I had not because I avoid reading circles of people that I am certain I will have a low opinion. Pastor Roberts hangs around a group of Evangelical leaders that tend to water down the Christian faith particularly the orthodox (for clarity – I am not writing of Eastern Orthodoxy) teachings of Biblical theology in which all divisions within Christianity have long agreed upon up until at least the 20th century.

 

So what do I consider Christian orthodoxy acceptable to all Christians?

 

Jesus Christ was born in the flesh from the Virgin Mary and the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God before His Virgin Birth as a man. So Jesus is both God and the Son of God. Jesus was crucified and died on the Cross to pay the debt of Adam’s sin. The Resurrection of Jesus in a flesh body Redeemed all of humanity that believe Jesus is the Son of God arisen in the flesh now glorified sitting at the Right Hand of the Father with the Promise of returning to Redeem the rest of Earth from the curse of Adam’s Fall. Now there is a lot more that I believe in the Ministry and Redemptive act of Jesus, but this is where Christians begin to diverge in their theology.

 

I can safely say that Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Believers and Protestants agree on the essentials of the articles of Faith which I just wrote. Even the Coptic Church – the largest Christian Church stuck under Islamic Supremacism – agrees with the above paragraph with a minor disagreement of the nature of Christ (a disagreement that was considered huge between Eastern [Greek] Orthodox and Copts in the days that Muslims conquered Egypt).

 

Pastor Bob Roberts has misapplied the Love of Christ to mean to fellowship with Muslims as brothers. We can agree that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to Redeem all humanity. We can all agree that Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself and the New Testament Epistles elaborate on this Golden Rule by calling Christians to honor all men (21st century political correctness: all men and women or all people). This would include people who are not Christians. Pastor Roberts takes this “honor all men” to the level of let’s fellowship as brothers with those that hate Christians and Jews; viz. Muslims.

 

Muslims that strive to live a harmonious life under their Allah might act on the thoughts that Islam is peace and that there is no compulsion of religion in Islam toward non-Muslims; however that is very divergent from their holy writings in the Quran and Hadith. In the Quran the Muslim doctrine of Abrogation allows Muslims to focus on the Quranic Suras that tell the Muslims to enslave non-Muslims under a life 2nd class domination under Islamic Supremacism (dhimmitude) or kill Christians and Jews for not submitting or converting.

 

You see the Quran has NO Golden Rule equivalent to the Biblical Golden Rule. The Quran is conquer, enslave or kill. The Bible is share the Good News of Jesus Christ so people can choose willingly to be Redeemed now or face damnation in the NEXT Life. The difference between Quran commands and Biblical New Testament commands are HUGE.

 

Muslims are either lying or ignorant of their own Quranic theology if they tell you this a non-Muslim deception. In Islamic theology the concept of duality actually allows for a Muslim to follow the peace and love Suras above the violent Suras that abrogate peace and love. The Islamic theology of duality: abrogated and non-abrogated Suras are both valid depending on the circumstance chosen by an Islamic authority such as a Mullah or Cleric or Islamic leader rather secular or theological. In Islam secular and theology are merged as one authority in advancing Jihad.

 

Muslims tell Westerners of the so-called Greater Jihad which is that internal struggle to live submitted to Allah. The historical reality is the so-called Lesser Jihad – Conversion by Conquest and humiliation – is the primary fashion that Islam spread throughout the Middle East, North Africa, India and parts of Europe. AND the so-called Lesser Jihad is what the modern purist Muslims desire to use to establish a modern Caliphate. These purist Muslims are identified to we Westerners as Radical Islam or Islamism today. The major concern should be for Westerners and Americans in particular is that Radical Islam can be identified as the Muslim Brotherhood network spread from Egypt and the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia. There are other regions of the world that export their Radical Islam toward the West but they don’t quite have financial-political clout of the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabis.

 

Pastor Bob Roberts is not extending a hand of Christian friendship to Muslims that Multiculturalists identify as Moderate Islam that place more stock in the Islam is Peace portions of the Quran, rather Pastor Roberts are reaching out to Radical Islamic elements in the USA with direct linkage to the Muslim Brotherhood. If an American Muslim organization directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood network or Saudi Wahhabi money they desire the destruction of American Constitutional law in which Religious Freedom and Free Speech is paramount. These Radical Muslim groups are also extremely anti-Semitic to the point that when they think no one is looking the Jew-Hatred oozes out calling for Jewish destruction.

 

Pastor Roberts has Church meeting giving Islam a Muslim moment in his Church which include speakers from the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA). ISNA seems to be networked by both the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabis.

 

Pastor Roberts is often heard using Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Yusuf al-Qaradawi in his build bridges with Islam thoughts:

 

“…one of the “key Islamic leaders” Roberts invokes is … Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a man who has praised Hitler, supports female genital mutilation, supported the fatwa calling for the assassination of writer Salman Rushdie and to top it all off, has called for a second Holocaust against the Jewish people!” (Snapshots a CAMERA blog; September 20, 2012 12:35 PM)

 

Pastor Roberts glories in knowing Professor John Esposito a man reputed as an expert in all thing Islam. Esposito refuses to condemn Radical Islam and blames Islamic terrorism as a pure response to American imperialistic colonialism. Esposito’s portrayal of Islam is idiotic denial of history and fans the hypocrisy that Islam is peace even while violence is globally widespread perpetrated by Muslims.

 

Esposito subscribes to the Edward Said school of thought, which holds that Middle Eastern attitudes toward Israel can never be understood from an “American colonialist perspective.” In other words, they should be viewed from the point of view of Israel’s alleged role as a base of American imperialism. Ignoring Hamas‘ program of creating an Islamic radical state to replace Israel – a genocidal agenda – Esposito has characterized the Palestinian terror group as a community-focused organization that, in addition to its violence, does a considerable amount of societal good via such productive activities as “honey [production], cheese-making, and home-based clothing manufacture.” He has likened Yasser Arafat’s calls for jihad to social initiatives for the launching of a “literacy campaign” or a “fight against AIDS.” He has called former professor Sami al-Arian, a terrorism-supporter with strong links to Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a “consummate professional.” (From John Esposito; Determine The Networks)

 

Pastor Roberts has spent time with Saudi Arabia’s former head of Intelligence Prince Turki-Al-Faisal. Pastor Roberts says this about the Saudi Prince:

 

He’s truly an exceptional man and a world leader par excellent!  I wish we had 1,000 men like him spread out across the world – this world would be a much better place.

 

As head of Saudi Arabia’s Intelligence Prince Turki al-Faisal had an amenable relationship with Osama bin Laden and Mohammed Omar the one-eyed Mullah that ruled Taliban controlled Afghanistan. This relationship was not hostile. Later the Prince had become the Saudi Ambassador to the USA. The enigma with that is he promotes Wahhabism on one side but typically of many Saudi Royal Family members also displays a Western veneer with his public actions in the West.

 

The Balfour Post ran a story mentioning the Radical Muslims I just mentioned and a few others. Read an excerpt below:

 

Pastor Bob Roberts. Jr. is known for his efforts to build-bridges with Muslims. He spoke at the “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference put together by Palestinian Christians at Bethlehem Bible College. So did Florida Pastor Joel C. Hunter, who has been negative attention for his association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. Hunter is also critical of “Christian Zionists.”

 

An article posted on Hunter’s website reports how the “Christ at the Checkpoint” audience, including students from Wheaton and Eastern Universities, “were moved by the testimony of Palestinian men and women who shared the pain and suffering they experience on a daily basis caused primarily by the continuing occupation.”

Pastor Roberts reacted to the anti-Islam Innocence of Muslims video by suggesting that governments crack down on its distribution. He said, “There is a ‘clear and present’ danger the U.S. courts have ruled in regard to freedom of speech—I think that has to extend globally.”

In January, NorthWood Church hosted Azhar Azeez, Vice President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terrorism-financing trial. Federal prosecutors labeled ISNA a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, a fact confirmed by the Brotherhood’s own secret documents.

In November, his church’s Global Faith Forum will bring the spotlight to his interfaith efforts and those involved in them. Event speakers include Rep. Kay Graner (R-TX), former South Carolina Governor David Beasley and Christianity Today editor Mark Galli, but they aren’t the main attractions.

The conference website’s home page proudly advertises Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. from 2005 to 2007, as a main speaker. Before that, he was the Saudi foreign intelligence chief from 1977 to 2001, making him a top figure in Saudi Arabia’s proliferation of Wahhabism around the world for over 20 years. He represented a Sharia-based government that persecutes Christians.

Faisal Bin Muammar was an advisor at the Saudi Royal Court and Secretary-General of the Riyadh-based King Abdul Aziz Center for National Dialogue.

Safi Kaskas is a co-founder of East West University in Chicago and a “strategy consultant for a number of business organizations in the USA and Saudi Arabia.” He is a member of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists. A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo identifies AMSS as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The memo says its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” The AMSS is also closely linked to the International Institute of Islamic Thought.

Another main speaker is Professor John Esposito, one of the top non-Muslim supporters of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network. He is a frequent guest speaker at their events and was a witness for the defense in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation.

The aforementioned Azhar Azeez is again speaking. He is the Vice President of ISNA and has been on its Executive Council since 2002. He is also the senior National Director of Islamic Relief USA, a charity linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Wadah Khanfar was the director-general of Al-Jazeera from 2006 to 2011. Al-Jazeera’s extremism is well-documented. The Arabic station even gives Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi a weekly show.

“Pseudo-Christian” Pastor From Texas Mega-Church Partners With the Muslim Brotherhood

On June 9, the Clarion Project reported that the U.S. envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will be speaking at an Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) regional conference, sharing the stage with at least three Islamists. But there are some other featured guests: ISNA’s interfaith allies, including Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church in Texas.

 

ISNA is identified in a 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memorandum as one of its fronts. The U.S. government also listed ISNA as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity when it designated the group an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation. The so-called “charity” was another U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that, in the words of Judge Jorge Solis, “operated from within ISNA.” ISNA denies it has “ever been subject to the control of…the Muslim Brotherhood.”

 

ISNA’s South Central Conference will be held in Dallas on June 15. The event will feature an interfaith panel that includes its Community Outreach Director, Mohamed Elsanousi, who attended a Muslim Brotherhood-linked conference in Mauritania last year.

 

Other participants include Rabbi Joshua S. Taub of Temple Emanuel and Cristina Warner, the Campaign Director of the Shoulder-to-Shoulder Campaign, an ISNA-allied interfaith coalition. ISNA is so proud of Shoulder-to-Shoulder that its success was a top talking point of senior officials when they met with the Islamist Prime Minister of Turkey.

 

The most high-profile interfaith speaker at the ISNA regional conference is Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church, a critic of “Christian Zionists.” As reported last month, Pastor Roberts’ NorthWood Church is holding its own Islamist-stocked interfaith event called the Global Faith Forum in November. Pastor Roberts’ speakers include ISNA officials, former senior Saudi officials and a former director-general of Al-Jazeera.

 

The Clarion Project’s original article on the event provides insight into some of the fellow speakers of Pastor Roberts, Rabbi Taub and Cristina Warner.

 

The keynote speaker is Dr. Jamal Badawi, who will also be on panels about Sharia and having a healthy family. His record includes praise for Hamas, “combative jihad,” and justifying the physical disciplining of wives (or, as he says, “a gentle tap on the body” for disobedience). His name also appears in a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood phonebook from 1992 and he hangs out with Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi. The radicalism of his resume is strong enough to prompt counter-terrorism expert Patrick Poole to ask, “Why is Jamal Badawi Still Allowed into the United States?”

 

ISNA official Yusuf Ziya Kavakci will be handling the opening remarks, leading a prayer and joining Badawi for the panel on Sharia. He used to lead a mosque that an article in 1999 said “is considered to be one of the most active centers of Hamas activity in the United States[.]” The mosque was linked to the Holy Land Foundation, the aforementioned U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that was housed by ISNA and shut down for financing Hamas.

 

The notorious Imam Siraj Wahhaj is listed as an invited speaker at the event. His radicalism is unquestionable. He has preached that “America is the most wicked government on the face of the planet Earth.” America, he told his audience, is a “garbage can” that he prays “crumbles.” Unlike some Islamists, he doesn’t hide his desire for Sharia Law in America.

 

“If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if eight million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us,” he said.

 

The book Muslim Mafia quotes Wahhaj even condoning violence. “We don’t need to arm the people with 9mms and Uzis. You need to arm them with righteousness first. And once you arm them with righteousness first, then you can arm them,” he said, as well as “I will never tell people, ‘Don’t be violent.’ That’s not the Islamic way.”

 

Wahhaj’s rhetoric lines right up with the private words of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The 1991 memorandum that identified ISNA as one of its fronts said its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”

 

Page 21 of the document states: “[W]e must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’” That is the context that ISNA’s interfaith alliances need to be put in.

 

After my last article on NorthWood Church was published, a reader emailed me to say that he posted it to the Facebook page of the church and the personal page of Pastor Roberts. It didn’t take long for it to be deleted. Ignorance is no longer an excuse.

TRUTH!  

                                         

…in a word, that is what sharia unveiled is about.

 

sharia unveiled is committed to seeking and sharing the truth.  In all things, there is only one truth.  There is no “middle ground” in truth.  There is no “compromise” in truth and there is no “tolerance” in truth.  There is no “leuke warm” in truth.  There are no “grey areas” in truth.  Truth is black and white.  Wrong or Right.  There is truth and everything else is just a lie.

 

We live in this world although we are not of it.

 

We live in a world of darkness, lies and deception.  We live in a world that protects, defends and rewards those who lie.  Why?  Primarily due to the fact that faith is being forced out of the world and evil is being invited in.  When we force God out essentially, we are creating a vacuum in society.  We are creating a void of empty space and the natural tendency is for that space to be filled.  The door has been left open and evil has been invited in.  Evil comes in many forms although rarely does it present itself as evil.  In most cases, it hides itself beneath a cloak of deception and a pretty name.  Sometimes evil even hides beneath the facade of “Peace and Love.”

 

We are dedicated to human rights.

 

sharia unveiled is absolutely and unequivocally devoted to the protection and defense of human rights.  There are many areas of human rights violations in the world today.  Unfortunately, there are too many for any one person or group to be able to focus on them all.  We pledge to focus on Read the Rest
