Eligah Barrett (not sure if a pseudonym or actual) uses sources to put together a profile of Iran’s agenda. As the title suggests, Iran is seeking to be a military power at least regionally. I suspect an even greater agenda with Iran’s pursuit of nukes.


This yet another reason to NOT TRUST Iran about any nuclear deal WHATSOEVER! Especially as negotiated by former President Barack Hussein Obama, the most corrupt President in American history.

The article examined how Iran planned to achieve this objective: More troubling to other countries in the area and to the west is the other side of Iran’s plan to achieve this objective: A HUGE REARMAMENT PROGRAM, financed largely by the New oil money.

“The Islamic Affairs Analyst of Gloucester, England, printed an article in August 1994 that said, ‘Iran is pursuing a parallel policy of surrounding Israel with implacable enemies. Turkey is moving closer to Iran. To Israel’s North, IRAN has deluged Hezbollah in Lebanon with money and weapons. With Hamas in control of Gaza, Tehran could ignite another conflict on Israel’s western and northern borders at any moment. Iran is also’ opening another front in the West Bank, which crawls with zealots sympathetic to if not in the pay of Iran. And Egypt, since the ouster of President Mubarak, is moving rapidly toward discarding its peace treaty with Israel as it moves into Iran’s camp.’” [Found at the Trumpet]

Of course, the Shiites controls Iran and are a majority 60 percent in Iraq. The U.S.’s removal of Saddam Hussein in 2003 opened the way for Iran to heavily infiltrate Iraq, providing armaments, financing and training to Shiites militias, sending thousands of operatives into the country and establishing economic ties with it. Moreover, the most powerful political party in Iraq is allied with Tehran. This could be a decisive factor causing Iraq to fall under Iran’s control.

“That 1994 Islamic Affairs Analyst article said further, starting at the foot of the Red Sea, ‘IRAN is set to increase its influence considerably in both Somalia and Yemen. … Further up the Red Sea coast, Sudan is already firmly in pro-Iranian hands with [Omar Hassan] al-Bashir’s military regime no more than a front for Hassan al-Bashir’s Islamists. And it is from bases in Sudan that Islamist fundamentalists are beginning to undermine the stability of the newly independent Eritrea, which, it should be noted, now controls all of what was formerly Ethiopia’s Red Sea coastline.’” [ibid.]

These trends continue today. Iran has continued to send arms shipments to Islamists in Somalia. In March 2008, Iran signed a military agreement with Sudan. In May 2008, it further boosted its ties with Eritrea, signing trade and investment agreements. Again, the following year, in April 2009, IRAN and Eritrea, together with Algeria, agreed to expand their bilateral cooperation. Iran has a frightening influence and control in North Africa, which greatly intensified with the unrest that began erupting in Arab states in early 2011. The Tunisian government fell in January into the hands of the radical Muslims. The Ennahda party, the Islamist party banned under the dictatorship of Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, quickly emerged as probably the most powerful political force in the country. In October 2011, the Islamists party won the nation’s first free elections since independence in 1956. That is almost exactly what happened in Egypt when its first-ever free elections ushered in the Muslim Brotherhood in 2012. However, it didn’t take long before discontent surged against the hard-liner Ennahda. Assassinations of two prominent opposition figures in 2013 threatened another revolution in Tunisia. It was only averted when rival factions negotiated a peaceful abdication of the elected Islamist government. Tunisia then elected the secular-nationalist Nidaa Tounes Party. Its candidate, Beji Caid Essebsi, became president. Essebsi, however, is a former official of the ousted Ben Ali regime. He has come under fire for Tunisia’s failing economy and for terrorist attacks that have crippled Tunisia’s tourism industry. Again, it is a scenario not much different from Egypt’s.

Iran has also heavily infiltrated Yemen and Bahrain, and it is deeply entrenched in Afghanistan. Many moderate Arab nations fear, and are afraid to offend, IRAN.

Here is what the Islamic Affairs Analyst of May 13, 1992, said: “The main strategic aim of Iran is to dominate the Persian Gulf and environs. An important step in achieving this goal is to GAIN UNDISPUTED LEADERSHIP OF THE RADICAL ISLAMIC CAMP.” Many of the good intelligence reports about Iran have proven true. Do we see just how powerful Iran is becoming militarily? Prof. Barry Rubin wrote in 2007, “IRAN tries to extend its influence in THREE ways: propaganda and incitement; the promotion of client groups, and projecting the state’s own power. Today, IRAN sponsors radical Islamist groups in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, and among in Palestinians as well as in other countries. Its two most important clients are Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Palestinian Hamas group (Global Politician, July 25, 2007).” [the Trumpet]

Radical Islam is Alive in America

Omar Hammami al Shabaab commander. from Alabama

ACT for America sent a link to a story from a local ABC News affiliate from the Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota area relating to homegrown Islamic terrorism. The affiliate is Channel 5 KTSP. Jennie Olson reports on young Muslim Americans joining the Somali Islamic terrorist group al Shabab (which is in tune with al Qaeda) recruiting young Muslim Americans of which many appear to be from Somali decent. The link was sent without comment by ACT. Undoubtedly this is because the story itself is self-evident of the dark side of Islam. In full disclosure Olson portrays this Muslim-American flocking to al Shabab of Somalia as aberrant to Islam; nonetheless pay close attention to the organizations these Muslim Americans were members of in their college student days.


There are a couple of Muslim Americans focused upon in the article: Jehad Mostafa and Omar Hammami. Jehad Mostafa was President of the Muslim Youth Council of San Diego (MYCSD). The Olson article reports without the “why?” that the MYCSD no longer exists. I found an about MYCSD at Islamic Finder. Islamic Finder says this about the MYCSD:


MYCSD (Muslims Youth Council of San Diego) is a group of youth dedicated to providing positive outlets for Muslim youth in San Diego. We organize youth camping trips, Fiqh Lessons and other activities. MYCSD also works closely with MSA (Muslims Students Association) at Mesa College and other at Universities to provide Muslims students with tutoring and counseling. MYCSD is dedicated to showing the world that Islam is a religion of peace and Muslims are a peaceful and productive part of society. (NCCR: Bold emphasis Mine)


So the MYCSD worked closely with Muslim Students Union!


The Muslim Students Association (MSA) of the United States and Canada was incorporated in January 1963, when members of the Muslim Brotherhood came together at the University2 of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with the goal of “spreading Islam as students in North America.”3


Al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun, or the Muslim Brotherhood, was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna. It is a rigidly conservative and highly secretive Egyptian-based organization dedicated to resurrecting true Islamic governance based on Sharia law. According to al-Banna, “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”5 The motto of the Muslim Brotherhood, as elucidated by al-Banna, is, “God is our objective, the Quran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”  This motto is often repeated by modern day Brotherhood figures around the world.



MSA promotes the Islamist ideology inspired by the Muslim Brotherhood, seeing itself as part of the global Islamic movement.  As Larry A. Poston, a theologian from Nyack College, explains in his essay, “Da’wa in the West”:


The Ikhwan [Brotherhood] can be credited with forming several of the Islamic organizations in America. MSA, formed in 1963, has often been a collaborative effort of Ikhwan members from Egypt, Iraq, Syria, and the Sudan.



The missionary philosophies of al-Banna and Mawdudi have entered the North American continent by at least three different routes…The second avenue has been the Muslim Student Association, undoubtedly the most activist of the da’wa organizations in America. Many of the founding members of this agency were members of or had connections to one or the other of the two organizations in question [the Muslim Brotherhood or Jamaat-i-Islami] and it was through these persons that the ideologies of al-Banna and Mawdudi were integrated into the goals and philosophies of the… [MSA].9 (From: Muslim Students Association: IPT Dossier; 39pp)


It is a pretty good educated guess that Jehad Mostafa was Islamized via radical indoctrination. Omar Hammami was the President of the MSA Chapter at the University of South Alabama. To become the President of an MSA Chapter Hammami was radicalized somewhere along the line to the MSA.


The Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating America and transforming the part of Islam that is peaceful to the dark part of Islam that is purist and desires to emulate the Prophet-Founder of Islam in Mohammed. Old Mo is considered the perfect man to be imitated in Islam whether the Muslim is moderate or radicalized. So when a Muslim tells you Islam is peace and love and Mohammed is the perfect example to follow, that Muslim’s perception is an honest evaluation even for a Moderate. A few years ago it had been said that Moderate Islam represents 90% of Islam while the other 10% is radicalized to terrorism.


Somehow the 90% of Moderate Muslims have convinced themselves that the violent, bloody and female degrading examples of Mohammed were examples of peace and love. That perception is warped because it simply is not true!
