Counterjihad writers have long asserted the Islam fingered as Radical has not only infiltrated the United States of America by forming NGOs with the stamp of legality BUT ALSO have been infiltrating the U.S. government itself. The government infiltration began in the Bush Administration even though it was President G. W. Bush that correctly defined a new era of unconventional war as the Global War on Terrorism (GWTO). Under the Leftist Administration of President Barack Hussein Obama Radical Islamic associated Muslims has increased alarmingly.
Here are just a few Radical Muslims (some often pretend to be Moderates) either on the government payroll or are very influential as a mover and shaker in the U.S. government.
o Suhail Khan – Khan convinced then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich to reserve a room in the Capitol for Muslims to pray. Khan was working for Tom Campbell, a Republican congressman from a heavily Muslim district in Northern California, to eliminate the Justice Department’s use of so-called “secret evidence” in deportation cases involving Arab immigrants suspected of terrorism. After George W. Bush’s presidential election victory in 2000, Khan became a staff member in the White House Office of Public Liaison (OPL), where he was given responsibility for selecting which Muslims would be allowed access to the President and his team. Khan was removed from the OPL and was given a political appointment in the Department of Transportation. He spent the rest of the Bush administration there, ultimately serving as the Assistant to the Secretary for Policy. In that capacity, Khan had access to classified information on such matters as port, rail, waterway and highway security, as well as the movement of nuclear weapons and other hazardous materials.
o Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN-5) [See Also HERE] – One of those strange bedfellows of a Left Wing Democrat and an associate of the Black Supremacist Nation of Islam (NOI) and a host of Radical Islamic American organizations linked to the Muslim Brotherhood of which many are linked to Islamic terrorists.
o Dalia Mogahed – An advisor to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
This is hardly an exhaustive list. I just gave up digging for now.
Most of the prominent Muslim-American organizations are linked to Radical Islam. Many of these organizations go out of their way to build an image of the politically correct concept of Moderate Islam. This is an outright deception. These Muslim-American organizations follow the ideological line of the Muslim Brotherhood, Saudi Wahhabis, Turkish Islamists and Pakistan Islamists are the ones that come to mind. Here is a chart of the Muslim Brotherhood linked Muslim-American organizations and note some of these are tied to Islamic terrorists or support the goals of Islamic terrorism.
All the organizations I have in mind above link themselves to Sunni Islam. You need to know there are Shia Radical Islamic organizations penetrating the USA as well. The Shias are supported by the Twelver nutcases of Iran. The biggest Shia Islamic Terrorist organization is Hezbollah the client terrorists of Iran in Lebanon focused on Jew-hatred and itself stretching a global network.
ACT for America via email sent an essay by John D. Guandolo that was written with the intent expose Radical Islamic organizations in America are attacking Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser with impunity. For those that believe Islam has a moderate side Dr. Jasser is considered a Moderate Muslim even to the extent of transforming the Islamic religion into a modern version in which the harsher points of Sharia and Muslim traditional intolerance are excluded. As you can tell from my tone I have been moving away from the concept that Islam can transform as long as Mohammed and the Quran are held as the veritable word of Allah to humanity. For this to happen would be an overhaul that I cannot see ever happening – at least in my life time.
But enough of the ifs and maybes of the possibility of a new Islam. The point you need to pay attention to in Guandolo’s essay is his break down of the nefarious connections the Muslim Brotherhood tentacles has in America in an astoundingly legitimate manner with NO One willing to take a stand that is a real leader in our nation out of fear.
What is that fear?
That fear is the brainwashing of our society to the political correctness that multiculturalism enhances our American way of life when in reality the American way is diluted. America has become so diluted with multiculturalism that the inherent traits of Americans are disappearing. As those traits disappear, that which makes America good ceases to exist.
Off the top of my head some of those traits are:
o American Individualism.
o The intense desire for individualism leads to a hunger for Liberty and Freedom.
o Liberty and Freedom led our Founders to construct a Constitution codifying them and making it difficult for a government to terminate Liberty and Freedom.
o Our heritage was largely established on the values of Christians coming to America to worship their faith without government interference YET with a definite inculcation of Christian Morality in the development of the rule of law and the social mores of American community.
o A government accountable to the people rather than a government accountable to an individual or an oligarchic group (such as European nobility).
I’m sure others can think of other points that made America good. Left Wingers need not add their Living Constitution Separation of Church/State nonsense.

CAIR’s Attack on Zuhdi Jasser’s Funders Begs the Questions:
Who is CAIR and Where Does Its Money Come From
By John D. Guandolo

Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, the founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), served for eleven years as a medical officer in the United States Navy where he was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal. Dr. Jasser is a Past-President of the Arizona Medical Association, and currently has a private practice in Phoenix specializing in internal medicine and nuclear cardiology.
Dr. Jasser, as many are aware, is an outspoken critic of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement in the United States, and is harshly critical of those seeking to impose sharia (Islamic Law) in America. He strongly supports the U.S. Constitution as the supreme law of the land.
Zuhdi Jasser is a patriot, an American hero, and a Muslim – which is why Hamas (doing business as CAIR) is attacking him.
Last week, Hamas (dba CAIR) launched yet another assault on Dr. Jasser. In 2012, CAIR unsuccessfully tried to block his appointment to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), where he currently serves. CAIR is calling on the USCIRF to investigate the sources of funding for Dr. Jasser’s organization AIFD.
The fact that a Hamas organization like CAIR could operate so openly in the U.S. without disruption from the current administration is, in and of itself, astonishing. CAIR’s brazenness in attacking an honorable American like Dr. Jasser begs questions that must be answered – Who is CAIR and Where Does Its Funding Come From?
Let us together take a walk through the place CAIR never wants us to go – into the land of facts and evidence.
CAIR was incorporated in 1994 by Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Rafeeq Jaber. All three of these men were leaders of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), a now-defunct Hamas organization in the U.S. Musa Abu Marzook, the Deputy Political Chief for Hamas and the Leader of Hamas in the United States (Chairman of the U.S. Palestine Committee), was a member of the IAP Board of Directors. FYI, Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. government.
In 1993 and 1994, Omar Ahmad served as the National President for IAP, and from 1994-2005 was the Chairman of the Board for CAIR. Omar Ahmad was also on the Executive Committee of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas). Rafeeq Jaber served as the National President of IAP from 1996-98 and 1999-2005.
U.S. government prosecutors and the Department of Justice identify CAIR as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas in the United States.
In 1993, the leaders of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas) met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The meeting was covered by the FBI via physical surveillance, microphones in meeting rooms, and wiretaps on phones. An “Action Memo” from FBI’s Assistant Director for Counterterrorism Dale Watson declared this was a “Meeting among senior leaders of Hamas, the HLFRD, and the IAP.” FBI analysis of the Philadelphia meeting, which was entered into evidence at the US v Holy Land Foundation (hereafter “HLF”) trial reveals “All attendees of this meeting are Hamas members.” Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad were present at this meeting.
Recorded conversations of this meeting captured Awad and Ahmad discussing the creation of a new public relations organization for Hamas which investigators testified was CAIR, created in summer of 1994, less than a year after the Philadelphia meeting.
The HLF Indictment (2004) states: “The purpose of this (1993 Philadelphia) meeting was to determine their course of action in support of Hamas’ opposition to the peace plan and to decide how to conceal their activities from the scrutiny of the United States government.”
In a 2004 FBI raid at the Annandale, Virginia residence of Ismail Elbarasse, a senior Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood (MB) operative, the archives of the U.S. MB were discovered. One of the documents found lists the leaders of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas) – the names of CAIR founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad (alias Omar Yeheya) are on that list.
Because of the overwhelming evidence that CAIR is a Hamas entity, U.S. prosecutors list CAIR as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas) and as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial – the largest Hamas and terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history.
In the government filing requesting a denial of CAIR’s motion to have its name removed from the Unindicted Co-Conspirator list in the HLF case, U.S. prosecutors state, “The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised of three organizations: the OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR was later added to these organizations…the mandate of these organizations, per the International Muslim Brotherhood, was to support Hamas.”
In his ruling, the federal Judge in this case, Jorge Solis, stated: “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with the HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.”
The question of why the President of ISNA sits on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Committee, works directly with the Secretary of State, briefs National Security staffs, moderates panel discussions at CIA Headquarters, and has been given awards by the FBI will have to be addressed at a later date.
Is anyone else wondering how CAIR and its leaders are allowed to operate freely and unimpeded in America, with their headquarters only a block from the U.S. Capitol?
In the December 2007 government filing in the US v Sabri Benkhala appeal, the government stated: “From its founding by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.” So, CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood organization which supports terrorists. It would appear federal law is being violated here.
This would explain why CAIR has a long record of defending jihadis and jihadi organizations, while publicly condemning the counterterrorism efforts of the U.S. government and local law enforcement. Noteworthy is CAIR’s vigorous defense of Hamas leader Musa Abu Marzook after his arrest, and their criticism of our government for its investigation and indictment of the Holy Land Foundation – another Hamas entity.
What do senior government officials who have seen the evidence have to say about CAIR?
Former FBI Assistant Director Steve Pomeranz stated: “By masquerading as a mainstream public affairs organization, CAIR has taken the lead in trying to mislead the public about the terrorist underpinnings of militant Islamic movements, in particular, Hamas.”
In a 2003 Senate Sub-Committee hearing on radical Islam, Senator Charles Schumer stated, “To make matters worse, the prominent members of the Council’s (CAIR’s) current leadership who you Mr. Chairman invited to the hearings today – they declined to testify – also have intimate connections with Hamas.”
In June 2009, on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Frank Wolf (VA) gave a lengthy speech in which he laid out a great deal of the evidence against CAIR and its ties to Hamas. The transcript of this speech can be found at http://wolf.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/wolf-gives-major-floor-speech-on-fbis-cooperation-with-cair
In a letter dated April 28, 2009 from the FBI’s Assistant Director, Office of Congressional Affairs, to U.S. Senator John Kyl (AZ), the FBI leader details why the FBI cut off all formal ties to CAIR and identifies it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial because of its relationship with Hamas.
In a letter dated February 12, 2010 to U.S. Congresswoman Sue Myrick (NC) from Assistant U.S. Attorney General Ronald Weich, Mr. Weich wrote “Enclosed (is)…evidence that was introduced in that trial (US v HLF) which demonstrated the relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders, and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and Hamas.”
For those of you who forgot Junior High School math, please allow me to review: If A=B and B=C, then A=C. There is a relationship between CAIR and the U.S. Palestine Committee. There is a relationship between the U.S. Palestine Committee and Hamas. Therefore, there is a relationship between CAIR and Hamas. As was previously stated, on the order from the International Muslim Brotherhood, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee to raise “media, money, men and all that” for Hamas. The U.S. Palestine Committee created four organizations to support Hamas with propaganda, money, and recruits: The Occupied Land Fund (which became the HLF), the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR), and CAIR.
In the sporting world we call this a slam dunk. But what about the money CAIR receives. Certainly if they are attacking Dr. Jasser and his organization for improprieties in his sources of funding, CAIR must be squeaky clean, yes?
Actually, the Hamas front called the Holy Land Foundation provided CAIR with $5,000 of seed money shortly after CAIR was founded, and, in return, CAIR raised money for HLF. Is there another violation of U.S. law here?
CAIR has also received funds from overseas organizations like WAMY (World Association of Muslim Youth) and IIRO (International Islamic Relief Organization). Both WAMY and IIRO are Saudi-funded groups whose U.S. offices were raided by the government because of their possible ties to Hamas and Al Qaeda.
Most notably, In 1999, CAIR received $250,000 from a Saudi-based bank headed by the former Director of the Muslim World League (MWL). Osama bin Laden identified MWL as a primary source of funds for Al Qaeda. Federal investigators raided MWL’s U.S. offices. It is not a far reach to see that CAIR received money from a source the leader of Al Qaeda recognized was a “primary” source of funding for AQ.
It should be noted the information in this article is a small amount of the massive evidence revealing the Council on American Islamic Relations is a Hamas entity whose role in the greater Islamic Movement here is to “support terrorists” as the U.S. Department of Justice has stated. They do this in a variety of ways. As a matter of fact, CAIR’s website acknowledges that all money donated to it via zakat goes to jihad fisabillillah – the seventh category under Islamic Law – but maybe we should save that discussion for another article.
As CAIR launches its attacks against honorable Americans like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser who are standing firm on the truth about a real and present threat to the American people and our nation, another question must be asked…
Where are the U.S. agencies charged with protecting and defending Americans like Dr. Jasser, and why are they not shutting CAIR down, arresting its leaders, and seizing all of its assets? Maybe they haven’t seen the facts.
Blog Editor: As I was doing a little reading on the info in these posts I came across a video presenting a Brigitte Gabriel speech about Radical Islam in the USA (55 minutes). I found it interesting enough to include it here.
