New York Mayor de Blasio Submits to Jihadis Requests

On New Yorks WNYC’s morning news program “The Brian Lehrer Show” Monday morning, New York Mayor de Blasio said he has agreed to move forward with plans to make Eid al Fitr and Eid al Adha – Muslim celebrations – holidays for New York City school children.

One has to assume the Mayor is not aware Eid al Fitr is the Muslim celebration of the first victory of Muslim military forces over non-Muslim forces at the Battle of Badr.  There are numerous Islamic resources to find this but you can go here.

I wonder if the Mayor will also institute a day off for all Japanese children in America on December 7th to celebrate the death of Americans at Pearl Harbor.  Only seems fair.

Egypt Declares MB a Terrorist Organization while U.S. Government Continues to Aid and Abet Them

the_muslim_brotherhood_by_hameddoban-d4rwhgsJust before Christmas, the Egyptian government declared the Muslim Brotherhood a “Terrorist Organization.”  In a public statement, Egypt’s interim Deputy Prime Minister Hossam Eissa stated all those “taking part in the the Muslim Brotherhood activities or promoting those activities by word or action or any other form” will be considered a part of this designation.  Simply being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood is a violation of the law now.

This is a tremendous step forward in crushing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  The West, especially America, should take note.

As usual, however, the U.S. State Department continues  its  pattern of aiding and abetting jihadis around the world, specifically in this case, the Muslim Brotherhood.

In response to  the announcement by the Egyptian government,  the U.S. State Department via spokeswoman Jen Psaki voiced concern about Egypt’s aggressive stance towards the Brotherhood by stating,

“We think it is essential for Egypt to have an inclusive political process; it is the best means of restoring the stability that the Egyptian people want and that is necessary to the country’s economic recovery.  There needs to be dialogue and political participation across the political spectrum.”

The State Department believes the government of Egypt should negotiate with the very force that previously violently overthrew the legitimate Egyptian government – the Mubarak Regime.

This comes from the same Administration which has consistently supported the MB in Egypt and provided and continues to provide direct support to Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya and Syria,  This administration materially supports Hamas organizations like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Hamas support organizations like the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and gives leaders of these organizations access to senior U.S. intelligence information and leadership.  Evidence in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history – US v Holy Land Foundation – demonstrated that ISNA is the “nucleus” for the Brotherhood’s Movement here and financially and organizationally supports Hamas, a designated terrorist organization.

The former Vice President of ISNA, now the President of ISNA, Imam Mohamed Magid,  sits on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council, briefs National Security staffs, has been publicly lauded as a helpful patriot by the President’s Deputy National Security Advisor, works directly with the current and previous Secretaries of State, has been given awards by the FBI, moderates panels on terrorism at CIA headquarters, and has wide access inside government spaces across the board.

This can only be described as insane behavior which puts  the lives of Americans  at  grave risk by giving the wolf the keys to the hen house.

In 2006, when I created the first training program in the U.S. government detailing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement here, I invited the FBI’s Assistant Deputy Director for Counterterrorism – the FBI’s number two man for all CT issues – Phil Mudd, to speak to the students. Approximately 50 professionals from local, state, and federal police units, as well as FBI, CIA, NSA, CT analysts from the Department of Justice and even one Assistant U.S. attorney sat through the two week course.  At the conclusion of his 50 minute remarks, students asked Mr. Mudd why the FBI was not pushing for the Muslim Brotherhood to be designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).  He responded by saying “We will never do that.”  When pressed further, he exited the building, got in his car and drove away.

Not much has changed.

With courageous leadership in the United States, we could designate the MB as an FTO and arrest and prosecute the hundreds of known Muslim Brotherhood leaders here.  Once designated a terrorist organization, the U.S. government could seize all MB property and finances, and shut down the most prominent Islamic organizations in America, all of which are controlled by the MB or a derivative thereof.

Since there seems to be an absence of courage and a stomach for this fight at the federal level, save for a very few, the solution lies at the state and local level to deal with this issue.  The sooner states and counties realize this, the better chance we have for victory.

As a nation, we must ask ourselves “What is more important:  appeasing and pacifying our enemies or protecting Americans from an easily identifiable threat?”

Jihad in Wichita Highlights the Massive Threat and the Ignorance of American Leadership

On Friday December 13, the FBI arrested 58-year-old avionics technician Terry Lee Loewen, an employee of Wichita Mid-Continent Airport (ICT), as he attempted to enter the airport apron through a perimeter gate so he could detonate a vehicle laden with explosives in a “martyrdom operation” in the cause of AllahJihad.  His plan was to blow up an passenger-filled airplane on the tarmac, killing as many people as possible, including himself.

What is typical, yet noteworthy, is the media’s dubbing of his plan, “radical,” and FBI leadership calling him a “lone wolf“—both of which demonstrate gross ignorance on the part of the media and our National Security community about the jihadi threat more than 12 years after 9/11.

To be clear, the work done by the Special Agent leading the investigation and the undercover employees involved was superb.  These people deserve our praise and our appreciation.  Because of their diligence, the FBI was able to insert themselves into the operation and provide Loewen with inert explosives and diffuse this martyrdom operation.

In the FBI complaint, the following portion of an email from Loewen to an undercover FBI employee stated in part:

As time goes on I care less and less about what other people think of me, or my views of lslam. I have been studying subjects like jihad, martyrdom operations, and Sharia law.  I don’t understand how you can read the Qur’an and the sunnah of the Prophet (saw)a and not understand that jihad and the implementation of Sharia is absolutely demanded of all the Muslim Ummah.

In fact, Loewen did a significant amount of studying of the requirements of Islamic Law (Sharia) to come to the conclusion that Jihad is obligatory for Muslims.  He came to this conclusion because all published Islamic Law obliges Jihad until the world is conquered for Islam and under the rule of the Sharia.  There is no such thing as a “version” of Islamic Law which does not oblige Jihad, which is only defined as “warfare against non-Muslims” in 100% of published Islamic Law.

In Islamic Law, the entire world is divided into the Dar al Harb, “the house or abode of war,” and the Dar al Islam, “the house or abode of peace.”  All lands which are not under Muslim control and ruled by Sharia, are considered Dar al Harb – enemy lands.  “Harbi” means enemy personnel, or inhabitants of the Dar al Harb.  All non-Muslims, not submitted to Islamic Law in Muslim lands are considered “enemy persons, persons from the territory of war.”  The term “non-combatants” does not exist in Islamic Law.  All lands occupied by Muslim forces at any time in history are considered “Muslim Lands.”

Jihad defined in authoritative Islamic Law:

“Jihad means to war against non-Muslims…signifying warfare to establish Islam” and is “obligatory for every Muslim”  [Umdat al Salik, Classic Manual of Islamic Law (Shafi), Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, d. 1368.]

“War…is obligatory on men who are free, have attained puberty, who find the means for going to war, are of sound health, and are neither ill nor suffer from a chronic disease…the jurists agreed, with respect to the people who are to be fought, that they are all of the polytheists, because of the words of the Exalted, ‘And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah.”  [The Distinguished Jurist’s Primer (Maliki), Ibn Rushd, d. 1198]

“Fight the unbeliever wherever you find them and lie and wait for them in every strategem of war…’I have been commended to fight the people until they testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah…’ This honorable Ayah (verse) 9:5 (Qur’an) was called the Ayah of the Sword, about which Ad-Kahhak bin Muzahim said, ‘It abrogated every agreement of peace between the Prophet and any idolator, every treaty, and every term.’ ”  [Tafsir of ibn Kathir, d. 1373]

Even text books used in Islamic elementary and junior high schools in America teach this.

“The word jihad is most often associated with the act of physically confronting evil and wrong-doing…if anyone dies in a Jihad they automatically go to Paradise. A Shaheed or Martyr, is described this way by Allah, ‘Don’t think that those who were killed in Allah’s Cause are dead.  No they are alive, finding their bounty in the presence of their Lord…the Law of the Land is the Shari’ah of Allah…the duty of the Muslim citizen is to be loyal to the Islamic State.”  [“What Islam is All About”  (most popular Islamic junior high school text in the U.S. – printed in English), 1997]

The FBI’s complaint defines “Jihad” as “an Arabic term meaning ‘holy war'” and “Sharia” as “the moral code and religious law of Islam.”

Yet American media outlets reporting the story of Terry Lee Loewen’s jihad say he had “radical ideas” and the FBI leadership told the public Loewen is a “lone wolf.”  The term “lone wolf” does not exist in the Law of Jihad in Sharia.  “Individual Jihad” – however – does exist.

While there are individuals who self-identify as “Muslim” in America who do not want to participate in jihad, there is no such thing as a “version” of authoritative Islamic Law which does not define Jihad as stated above.

In a letter Loewen left for his family, he stated:  “By the time you read this I will – if everything went as planned- have been martyred in the path of Allah.”

The problem is not the increasing number of Muslims in the community who are willing to commit to martyr themselves in jihad against America and the West.  The problem is the growing number of American leaders who are failing to adhere to their Constitutional and legal duties to “know the enemy,” address this enemy, and defeat this enemy.

National Review Author Andrew McCarthy Praises “Raising a Jihadi Generation”

Raising a Jihadi Generation Book CoverAndrew McCarthyFormer federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, one of America’s most respected commentators on U.S. National Security, expressed high praise for John Guandolo’s new book, Raising a Jihadi Generation. As a prolific author, and one of nation’s foremost authorities on the global jihadi threat, McCarthy’s endorsement is significant.

While an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York (1993-1996), Mr. McCarthy led the prosecution against Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman (a.k.a. the “Blind Sheikh”) and members of his organization, in which a dozen jihadis were convicted of urban terrorism that included the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and a plot to bomb New York City landmarks. Mr. McCarthy has also made major contributions to the prosecutions of the bombers of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the Millennium plot to attack Los Angeles International Airport. McCarthy’s role in some of the most prominent terrorism cases in American history and the 9/11 investigation, attest to his extensive knowledge and understanding of the jihadi threat.

Calling Raising a Jihadi Generation “a must read for all Americans,” McCarthy gushed with high praise for the book writing, “While Raising a Jihadi Generation is geared toward government agents, it will prove useful to any American who wants to learn about the threat. An agent who spent an hour reading it would learn more pertinent information than can be gleaned in a hundred of Washington’s preferred sensitivity-training courses.”

Read Andrew McCarthy’s entire article on Raising a Jihadi Generation at National Review Online here.Christmas Shipping DeadlinesAndrew McCarthy is a Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) in Washington, DC, where he serves as Director of FDD’s Center for Law and Counterterrorism.

House and Senate Intel Committee Chairs: “America LESS Safe” and “Sharia Motivates Enemies”

In statements that can only be described as stunning, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI), both of whom chair the Intelligence Committee in their respective chamber, admitted that America is “Less Safe” than it was two years ago. The comments were made in a joint interview with the two leaders that aired on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday morning.

While Feinstein’s and Rogers’ comments were focused exclusively on kinetic attacks (bombings, shootings, etc.), not the massive jihadi network in the United States, they make it clear that the number of threats is significantly higher and the number of actual jihadi attacks worldwide is much greater than only 24 months ago.

These facts raise some serious questions and bring to light fundamental failures by our government.

  • Why is the number of jihadi attacks around the world increasing at a time when the United States is ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?
  • Senator Feinstein made a powerful statement when she said there is “a real displaced aggression in this very fundamentalist jihadist Islamic community, and that is that the West is responsible for everything that goes wrong and that the only thing that’s going to solve this is Islamic Sharia law.”
  • During the interview, Congressman Rogers said, “I absolutely agree that we’re not [safer] today, for the very same reasons. The pressure on our intelligence service to get it right to prevent an attack is enormous.”

The leaders of both of our intelligence committees in the United States Congress are on the record admitting that we are less safe and jihadi attacks are increasing rapidly. Our enemy seeks to impose Islamic Sharia Law and that’s their stated objective. Our intelligence service is under “enormous” pressure to prevent attacks.

As has been documented previously here, and in my new book Raising a Jihadi Generation, we have a massive jihadi network in the United States led by the Muslim Brotherhood. All training on the Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia Law for the men and women who need it the most in the FBI, DHS, Joint Terrorism Task Forces, and others, has all been completely shut down by the leadership of the FBI, DHS, and military.

The pieces now fall into place: Our Intel Committee chairs have stated: the objective of the jihadis (the imposition of Sharia); that the threat is increasing greatly; and that our intelligence service in under enormous pressure to prevent attacks. Yet, all training dealing with understanding these issues has been shut down and therefore the key issues cannot be discussed within the very agencies charged with protecting us.

Mrs. Feinstein and Mr. Rogers may want to ask the agencies charged with protecting America how they expect their employees to defend against an obvious threat that they have commanded their employees not to know.

One Thing Americans Cannot be Thankful for This Year

As Americans begin preparations for our annual celebration of Thanksgiving to God for the many blessings He has bestowed upon our great nation, one thing we will find difficult to thank Him for is strong and principled leaders in Washington—none can be found anywhere in our government.

Over the past couple days, news of a “deal struck” with Iran has made the United States Diplomatic Corps giddy with excitement. Yet another agreement with Iran has been negotiated out of perceived weakness, including use of conciliatory language by American leaders who long to “get along” instead of govern with the best interests of the American people in mind.

The agreement, which includes billions of dollars in aid to the Iranian regime, will relieve pressure on Hezbollah”s benefactor to comply with international nuclear arms regulations. Diplomats, of course, will trumpet the “strict rules” of compliance the agreement imposes on Iran’s Uranium enrichment efforts, but since it has yet to comply with any of several international guidelines imposed on it to date, it is difficult to believe this agreement will be treated any different by Iran’s Mullahs just because Western governments have given them more wiggle room.

Meanwhile, Israel and Saudi Arabia are gravely concerned, and for good reason. Benjamin Netanyahu has called the agreement with Iran a “historic mistake” and is sending his own team to Washington to speak to President Obama. Well aware that once U.S. forces are completely out of Iraq, Iran will have a clear path to the Saudi Kingdom, and understanding that a new era of war is on the horizon between the Shia and Sunni Muslim world, Saudi Arabia has a great deal to be concerned about, especially when the international community offers Iran leniency.

Great leaders have always understood that tyrannical and evil regimes must always be dealt with firmly because they know nothing of integrity of agreements or merciful conciliations. Regimes like Iran only understands the iron fist of strength, and they must know it will come down on them if they do not adhere to existing international law and agreements. This current weak agreement, which is standard fare with this administration, will only lead to further turmoil to the region.

New “THIN BLUE LINE PROJECT” Launch Gives Law Enforcement Much-Needed Resource Against Jihadi Threat

Image

A much needed and well produced website entitled “The Thin Blue Line Project” has been launched, giving American Law Enforcement officers a detailed resource to better understanding jihadi operations and the Islamic Movement in the United States, and help them with investigative tools and strategies to keep their communities safe in the face of this growing danger.

Created by the ACT! for America Education, the Thin Blue Line Project intends to be a one-stop shop for American Law Enforcement for the Jihadi Threat.

Using evidence and well-sourced data, the “TBL” as it is being called by cops, intends to be a critical part of all law enforcement officers’ professional development.  Several senior law enforcement officials have specifically stated the information provided by the Thin Blue Line Project is not being taught by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces or any of the other usual sources for Terrorism matters, making the TBL an even more valuable resource.

“This information is desperately needed at the state and local level, but most of us are not aware of it.  I am thankful for this resource.  We are going to use it to build out some training programs for our men and women on the street,” said a senior state intelligence official in the southeast.

The mission of the Thin Blue Line Project is to be a one-stop source of information for law enforcement professionals about the Islamist ideology, strategies, tactics, organizations and individuals that pose a clear and present danger to the United States.

The site provides in-depth information about the Muslim Brotherhood Movement, how Americans are being radicalized to commit acts of “terrorism”, the doctrine driving the jihadis, evidence from federal cases detailing the threat and what it means for Americans, and the site provides investigative strategies and suggestions for law enforcement officers.

Most notably, the Thin Blue Line Project provides a forum for local police to discuss cases and information with each other about things they are seeing in their areas releated to the jihadi threat.

This site is for law enforcement officials only – including uniformed and retired officers, state/local prosecutors, federal agents and prosecutors, intelligence officials, and those related to these professions.

Readers are encouraged to make their local and state law enforcement agencies aware of this valuable resource.  It will help keep you and your family safe.

The website for this resource is http://www.ThinBlueLineProject.org.

Please pass this information on.
