Hirsi Ali Writes about MB Strategy of Transformation

Have you ever heard of Antonio Gramsci? Essentially Gramsci was a Marxist that stuck more to the original Karl Marx dialectical more than the Lenin/Stalin determinism. Gramsci added another wrinkle to Marxist thought that diverged from both Karl Marx and Lenin/Stalin. Gramsci determined that open revolution was not a successful path to transform the thought patterns of the global working class and the global poor. Rather Gramsci felt that the hearts and minds of those who live for gratification even if that gratification was distributed by the rules of the wealthy elite should be gradually won over by the illusion of caring about the gratification of the working class and poor.

 

So what is the reason for the micro-Gramsci lesson? The Gramsci method is amazingly similar to the Alinsky method. And the Alinsky method is one of the hugest influences on President Barack Hussein Obama’s ideas for American transformation.

 

There is another nefarious organization that has nothing politically in common with Marxism and yet seems to have studied Gramsci’s methods of infiltration to gain the trust of non-elitist people and yet move up the chain of command of elitist ruling structures.

 

What is that organization? That organization is the radical Islamic organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood (aka Ikhwan often abbreviated as MB).

 

Former Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali fled her land of birth Somalia because her father was persona non grata to Somalia’s dictator Mohamed Siad Barre. From Somalia she moved around the Muslim Middle East of which one stop was Saudi Arabia. Ayaan’s family ultimately settled in Kenya. Somewhere between leaving Kenya and facing an arranged Muslim marriage in Canada she landed in Netherlands. She became a citizen and an actual Parliamentarian PM. In her apostasy from Islam she joined Theo Van Gogh (a descendant of legendary artist Vincent Van Gogh) to make the film Submission about female oppression in Islam. Both Theo and Hirsi Ali received death threats from Muslims about the exposé of Islam. For Theo Van Gogh the death threat became a reality – he was murdered in the streets of Amsterdam with a letter written blood directing the same death would await Hirsi Ali.

 

At this point the PM Hirsi Ali came under guard from Dutch authorities. Hirsi Ali’s spirited condemnation of the Van Gogh murder in the name of Islam evidently irked the Muslims of Netherlands to the point that Hirsi Ali resigned her PM position which shortly followed by the Netherlands stripping her of her Dutch citizenship in an act of dhimmitude to resident Muslims in the Netherlands. I know Hirsi Ali came to America but as of 2011 I have had a difficult time with search engines if she is still here. Wherever she is living (America or Netherlands) she still needs to lay low to avoid an assassination attempt from a psycho Muslim. There has been a bit of a row because Hirsi Ali lied about her name when she arrived to the Netherlands that at one time had given her citizenship status (stripped and renewed). Evident Ayaan Hirsi Ali was originally Ayaan Ali Magan. For someone fleeing oppressive Islam it understandable as to the reason she changed her name. And yet Muslim apologists and Muslims who abhor Hirsi Ali’s apostasy are crawling out of the woodwork to call her a liar and therefore an unbelievable person.

 

I say those accusers are the kind of morons that Hirsi Ali fled from in the first place!

 

At any rate thanks to the Jewish World Review I found a Hirsi Ali article on the Muslim Brotherhood in which she explains that organization is a greater threat to Western Society than actively violent terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda. Read that Jewish World Review posting of Hirsi Ali’s article, “Will Muslim Brotherhood succeed where Osama bin Laden failed?” She does not allude to my thoughts about Gramsci Marxism; however the Muslim Brotherhood tactics she illustrates sounds allot like the Gramsci method to transform a nation or a culture.

Islam: Reformation or Transformation


Radical-Moderate Islam

John R. Houk

© March 29, 2011

 

Christopher Logan of Logan’s Warning is very displeased with Brigitte Gabriel’s distinction between Moderate Islam and Radical Islam. Logan is one of those that believe Islam is Islam as is inherent in Islamic holy writings.

 

I have long struggled back and forth internally about the existence of a Moderate Islam. I am fully aware that in America a significant amount of the Muslim community subscribe to America’s concept of constitutional freedom as is guaranteed by the first ten Amendments which are called the Bill of Rights. Of those ten Amendments the First Amendment is the big dog of civil liberty guaranteeing Free Speech, Religious Freedom, Free Press, Free Open Protest, Freedom to petition the government without fear of retribution and no government interference of the practice of religion.

 

I also know that most of the Mosques in America receive their Islamic religious and theological literature from the Saudi Arabian dime. This means that purist Islam of the Wahhabis (and Muslim Brotherhood) niche, which the Western media asserts is a minute minority in Islam, is what American-Muslims read. Also if one ever takes a peek at angry Muslims in Islamic dominated lands it is difficult to believe that those who are supposed to be the Islamic majority subscribe to a moderate interpretation of Islam. When one reads about mass Muslim protests over idiotic cartoons of Mohammed in an unflattering expression, there was not so much a demonstration of a religion of peace and more of a demonstration of  religion threatening violence and calling for murder and revenge on embassies that allowed Mohammed cartoons to be freely published in Western media. Also it is becoming common in Muslim dominated lands for hateful and violent persecution to be executed upon Christians. This violence leads to pogrom-style destruction of Christian Churches and property that often leads to rape and kidnapping of women as well as death to Christians that are in the way of the Islamic pogrom-style madness.

 

Now back to those Muslims that wish us non-Muslims to believe most Muslims are moderate and religion of peace kind of guys, I need to refer to a Muslim that has really become the face of Islamic “reform” in America – Dr. Mohammed Zuhdi Jasser.

 

Dr. Jasser is very anti-Islamist and pro-Moderate Islam. No one disputes his antagonism toward radical Islam and his complaint that the most known Muslim organizations in America have an Islamist and/or Muslim Brotherhood connection. The many that are critical of Dr. Jasser dispute his claim that most Muslims in America are moderate because they don’t actually attend the radicalized Mosques (which seems to be the majority) in America. This criticism goes back to those that believe Islam is Islam as it is recorded in the Quran, Hadith and Sira (combination of Sunna and Hadith). This is the very purist Islam that the Muslims we call radical subscribe to. The actual reform movement in Islam is the call to a return to the Islam established by Mohammed and congealed by the Four Rightly Guided Caliphs. This is the very purist Islam that the Muslims we call radical subscribe to. The reform called by Dr. Jasser is the eschewing of the violent concepts in Political Islam which is the majority portion of Sharia Law. Though many of us kafir (non-Muslims) might call this reform, it is actually a transformative call by Dr. Jasser and the few that follow his (what I believe to be) noble call to change Islam into an actual religion of peace.

 

Dr. Jasser’s assertion that most American-Muslims are moderate is because American-Muslims do not follow the radical Islam that permeates most American Mosques. Dr. Jasser’s critics believe that is a deluded fallacy. Ergo, if Dr. Jasser is preaching a fallacy he must be a deceiving liar. Debbie Schlussel who complains about many prominent exposers of radical Islam as being con artists and/or plagiarists of her journalistic pieces says this about Dr. Jasser:

 

You see, the message Mr. Jasser is spreading is contrary to the one he claims in the movie. The movie warns of the homegrown jihad we’ve been warning about for years, since before 9/11. But Jasser’s statements regularly contradict the movie. He’s two-faced, and a liar. And you simply can’t believe a single piece of fertilizer coming out of his mouth. He openly lied to me in an e-mail, claiming he’d never discussed a topic on Detroit radio, which he expressly did discuss on the air for a full half-hour.


Jasser has consistently appeared on Detroit radio shows and TV and radio shows around the country, saying the usual bullcrap, i.e., that Islam is a peaceful religion, that the majority of Muslims are peaceful because they don’t belong to a mosque, that CAIR and MPAC and ISNA, etc. don’t represent Islam.

 

 

Sorry, but that’s baloney. Islam is not peaceful. Whether or not Muslims belong to a mosque is not the determinant of their radicalism, only an adding factor. I know some extremely secular Muslims who drink alcohol and haven’t been to a mosque in decades. But they love Hezbollah and HAMAS and hate Jews, Christians, America, and Israel. If the majority of Muslims are really peaceful and don’t support terrorist groups, why did I see ten thousand Muslims–during the workday–marching on the streets of Dearborn and Detroit in support of Hezbollah and HAMAS in both 2006 and early 2009? Why do Bin Laden, HAMAS, Hezbollah, Ahmadinejad, and Nasrallah remain the most popular figures and entities in poll after poll of Muslims? Why do a third of young American Muslims support homicide bombings?

 

Dr. Jasser was kicked out of his mosque in Arizona, a pretty good sign that Islam is, in fact, radical, and they don’t want his pretentious claim otherwise. I’m sorry, but CAIR, ISNA, and MPAC do represent Islam more than he does. Far more, despite his claims otherwise. It’s like when Communist fantasists and utopians used to tell me that I can’t judge Communism by its manifestation and practice in the Soviet Union or Cuba or China, because they don’t practice “real” Communism and don’t represent this silent, imaginary majority of Communists worldwide who love peace and don’t throw people in jail for a life of torture for writing a poem. Sorry, Zuhdi, but you know better. And yet, you continue to lie. I asked Jasser how many Muslim members he has in his organization, the “American Islamic Forum for Democracy,” and he didn’t respond. He’s told others it’s about 100. That’s not even negligible. It’s downright embarrassing.

 

Not negligible are the speaking fees and other payments and funding Dr. Jasser is getting from this speaking tour, a good chunk of it courtesy of the Clarion Foundation, which in using him as its two-faced spokesman seems not to heed its own eponymous clarion call. I dream (and will forever dream) of the day we will see a Muslim (which means an ex-Muslim) or an Arab who is actually putting forth a consistent, truthful, truly peaceful message . . . and not some uninformed double-talk, milked as a money-making enterprise. Jasser, Hanan Tudor a/k/a “Brigitte Gabriel,” Walid Shoebat, and other frauds have all made a mint after they opened up shop post-9/11 (and lying about what and who they are). Before then, they were nowhere to be seen. Apparently, the underside of the rock was quite cozy ’til then, but afterward the outside suddenly became far “greener.” (The Sad Truth About Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser–Star, Narrator, & Producer of “The Third Jihad” Mar. 12, 2009 2:45 PM)

 

As you can see Schlussel is not pleased with a lot of people that actually have the same agenda of exposing Islam. Schlussel seems to believe that any defense of the existence of “Moderate Islam” must have an agenda of self-aggrandizement for gain; thus the Gabriels, the Jassers and the Shoebats criticizing Radical Islam deceive to make money because they lie or are plagiarizing the Schlussel journalism. Honestly I believe every one of the people Schlussel castigates has accomplished a great service in exposing the agenda of Islam in America. I have never heard that Brigitte Gabriel’s name is Hanan Tudor (Where did that come from?). If Gabriel had an alternative name, what is the implication?

 

I have kind of taken the middle road about the nature of Islam. According to Islamic holy writings that affect non-Muslims, the religion of Islam is evil. Muslims that declare they practice a moderate path of Islam simply means that Moderate Muslims wittingly or unwittingly disregard the portions of Islam that are doom and gloom in this present physical time for non-Muslims. All Muslims that call for a return to the practices of the early days of Islam are calling for a reformation to the pure days of Islam. The Muslims that call for an updated or a modernized Islam are calling for the elimination of the portions that call for defending the faith with a good physical offence (i.e. with violence) to propagate or to force submission of non-Muslims to the supremacy of Allah and Islam. Frankly my friends if you find a Muslim that denies that all of the examples of the perfect man, their prophet Mohammed, that Muslim person is part of a very miniscule minority in which the Muslim will find their life is endangered.

 

Does this mean that Muslims no matter how few they are, such as Dr. Jasser, should be criticized because they have a vision for an Islam that is actually a religion of peace in more than in mere deceptive propaganda? As long as the desire for a new kind of Islam exists among Muslims, it will be a noble desire.

 

I have to admit I sense it is a bit of dangerous territory for non-Muslims to believe in an Islamic transformation. Multicultural diverse Leftists that are deluded about the validity of all cultures whether evil, good or foreign are understandable. However, for Conservatives and those that wish to expose the nature of Islam by writing about the tenets of radical Islam as distinct from Islam itself is a path with good intentions yet probably doomed to failure. The only way for a transformed Islam is for a charismatic figure within the substructure of the Islamic faith that has the ability to catch the mind of Muslims to abandon the medieval-intolerant-global empire mindset of purist Islam. I am afraid such a person would be a miracle for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike. It would be a miracle for Muslims in the sense that the Clerics are self-indoctrinated and they indoctrinate their followers that Islam is pure and all else is false; even if the defense of the faith requires a violent action to correct even the least insult to Islam, Mohammed and Allah. Centuries of Islamic programming among Muslims has entrenched intolerance and Islamic Supremacy into their minds. I dare say that non-Muslims living in Muslim dominated lands have also been brainwashed to the point of accepting the supremacy of Islam; i.e. in following the rules of Sharia as it applies to non-Muslims not offending anything to do with Islam. So a Muslim willfully believes a dhimmi or pseudo-dhimmi life is better Islam. The offering of basic human right to religious freedom, free speech and freedom of conscious is anathema to the Islamic Supremacist mind especially in Muslim dominated lands.

 

In this sense Debbie Schlussel’s castigation of Brigitte Gabriel (Christian from Lebanon) and Walid Shoebat (Converted Christian and former Palestinian terrorist) might be a bit justified except for her use of bridge burning words that offends an ally in exposing Islam. It also brings one to an understanding of Christopher Logan’s frustration with Brigitte Gabriel and Dr. Jasser for looking for a Moderate Islam.

 

There was a serious effort in the nineteenth century to transform Islam away from its violent nature. Islamic Supremacism marginalized and persecuted that transformation attempt. The attempt of transformation was initiated by an Iranian by the name of Sayyid ‘Ali Muhammad Shirazi. Shirazi declared himself to be the Bab which translated into English means the gate or gateway or doorway and probably other synonyms I didn’t take time to look for. The Bab imagined himself to be the Hidden Twelfth Imam of the Twelver portion of Shias who are predominantly Iranian (once called Persians). The Bab’s effort to declare himself the Hidden Imam was a transformation movement within Shia Islam. Here is a summary of the Bab’s idea of Islamic transformation:

 

Babism (bä’bizum) [key], system of doctrines proclaimed in Persia in 1844 by Ali Muhammad of Shiraz. Influenced by the Shaykhi Shiite theology that viewed the Twelve Imams as incarnations of the Divine, Ali Muhammad proclaimed himself the Bab, the living door to the twelth Imam and the knowledge of God, and sent missionaries throughout Persia. He also announced a series of revelations, detailing the cosmogonic sequence, abrogating Islamic obligations and replacing them by a new set, structured around esoteric concepts such as the importance of the number 19. The year was hence divided into 19 months of 19 days each; the community was led by a council of 19 members. The movement placed special emphasis on the coming of the Promised One, who would embody all the tenets of the new religion. In 1848 the movement declared its complete secession from Islam and all its rites; upon the accession of a new shah, the Babi (the Bab’s followers) rose in insurrection and were defeated. Many of the leaders were killed, and the Bab was executed at Tabriz in 1850. Two years later, after an attempt on the life of the shah, there followed more persecutions. In 1863 the Babi were removed to Constantinople and later to Adrianople and Cyprus. After 1868 one group had its center in Acre under the leadership of Mirza Husayn Ali Nuri (known as Baha Ullah), the founder of the Baha’i faith, who declared himself the Promised One. (Babism; Fact Monster)

 

 

When the Bab was captured and tried for heresy by the Twelvers and imprisoned, the Babi followers went off on a jihad that turned into a Persian civil war. During this time the Bab was executed by firing squad. The Babi Jihad went on for a couple of years until it was ruthlessly put down resulting in the deaths of most of the leadership and thousands of Babis. One of the survivors of the lost Babi revolution was Mirza Husayn Ali Nuri. Husayn Ali was disturbed by the violence of the Bab, Babism and Islam. After a period of hiding Husayn Ali eventually ended up Acre (Akka and present day Israel) of the Syrian Magistrate of the Ottoman Empire. Husayn Ali was part of a split between the Babis. At that time a greater amount of Babis joined Husayn Ali’s version of a spiritual evolution of the Bab’s teaching. Husayn Ali became Baha’u’llah the founder of the Baha’i faith.

 

Baha’i is a religious movement founded in the 19th century by the Persian Bahaullah. It claims members in practically every country of the world. Objecting to polygamy, slavery of any kind, religious prejudices, and politicized religion, Baha’is call for world peace and harmony. The ideals of a world federalist government and a new world language are also a part of their teachings. Recognition of the common ground of all religions is seen as fostering this move toward global unity; Krishna, Buddha, Moses, Zarathustra, Jesus, and Muhammad are all recognized as divine manifestations, a series of prophets culminating in Bahaullah. Nonresistance, respect for persons, and legal recognition of the equal rights of both sexes constitute additional aspects of Baha’i teaching.

 

Baha’u’llah survived brief imprisonment in Iran/Persia and then was exiled to the Ottoman Empire who basically imprisoned him or placed on virtual house arrest for the rest of his life. Effectively Baha’u’llah was persecuted as a heretic from Islam by both the Shias of his homeland and the Sunnis of the Ottoman Empire.

 

Considering all that had happened in the 48 years beginning with the declaration of the Báb in 1844, Bahá’u’lláh’s passing on May 29, 1892 at about 3:00 A.M. might seem anticlimactic. He died quietly at the age of 75, still marginally a prisoner but permitted to live outside the walls of Akká in a mansion known as Bahjí. The relative tranquility of His final days on Earth stand in marked contrast to the tumult that had surrounded Him for much of His life, yet it proved to be merely the calm before another storm for ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, His oldest son and appointed successor. (Read the rest of essay at Reflections on the Ascension of Bahá’u’lláh; Dale E. Lehman; Revised: 05/25/2001)

 

From a Christian perspective Baha’i is part of the many paths that are wide and lead to the destruction of the soul in which the human spirit is in danger of experiencing the second and final death. From an Islamic perspective Baha’i is the transformative path that would truly evolve Islam into a religion of peace.

 

Reformation in Islam is a return to Mohammed’s wickedness. A transformation in Islam will lead to the Mecca-Mohammed before the Hegira to Medina in which Mohammed became mad with power. Without that transformation there will be definitely a clash of civilizations between the West and the violent culture that is Islam.

Inside the King Hearing


Lisa Piraneo

This ACT for America update about Rep. Peter King’s (R-NY) inquiry into the radicalization of Muslim-Americans and/or homegrown Islamic terrorism is written by Lisa Piraneo. Piraneo managed to barely make it into the overflow room to witness the questions of Democrats and Republicans of the hearing in question.

 

Piraneo’s observations show me the Democrats are hell bent to turn a blind eye to what is happening with Islamic radicalization in America. The Committee Democrats were just plain hostile and rude to testifying Muslims who do not appreciate the cruelty of Sharia Law.

CAIR-CA Deceptive Video Deflects Radical Muslim Appearance


Siraj WahhajAbdel Malik Ali

 John R. Houk

 © March 9, 2011

 

 The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a radical Islamic organization that deceives Muslims and non-Muslim-Americans alike into believing that it is a moderate Islamic organization promoting peace, Islamic Civil Rights and Islamic awareness. It is a bunch of hooey since CAIR has been linked to Hamas by America’s Judiciary system and indeed its own leadership has supported radical Islamic concepts that are anything but tolerant. CAIR also invites Islamic Supremacist radical Muslims to speak all across America.

 

CAIR is a national organization that has Chapters in urban areas across America. Oft times these CAIR Chapters may fund a hater of non-Muslims to speak either independently or in conjunction with the CAIR national organization.

 

Fortunately for America there is another national organization that has the mission of countering Islamic propaganda, disinformation and lies from radical Islamic organizations like CAIR. Now I say like CAIR because there are several organizations that deceptively claim to be moderate but in reality are as radical as stink on manure.

 

The organization which counters the Islamic propaganda is ACT for America founded by Brigitte Gabriel who experienced firsthand the viciousness of Islam from Hezbollah growing up in Lebanon. Like many Lebanese Christians, Gabriel ended up fleeing to America to escape Muslim persecution of Christians. At one time Christians had numbered about half the population of Lebanon. Radical Islam in Lebanon has reduced the percentage of Christians to a little less than 40%.

 

Thank God Almighty that ACT for America also has Chapters across America to counter the local lies of CAIR Chapters. But you know ACT is not the only organization that is wising up to radical Islamic infiltration that spreads propaganda among Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Recently a group of Conservative groups joined together to protest a couple of radical Muslim speakers in Yorba Linda, CA. I found this odd because it appears these groups of Conservatives were led by a local Tea Party organization in the area. I am gratified that someone in that group understood that a couple of enemies of America were scheduled to speak in their area; however Tea Party protests are usually focused on lowering taxes and issues surrounding less involvement of the government in the lives of Americans.

 

The radical Muslim group that sponsored these speakers was the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). ICNA also has a history of recognized support of Islamists and Hamas terrorists. Just as CAIR claims to be moderate so also does ICNA. The big difference between the two radical Muslim organizations is that CAIR is a bit more sophisticated in its deception of moderation than is ICNA. Although ICNA’s public demeanor in North America is moderate, a quick read of its own documents will show ICNA’s true radical colors.

 

The radical Muslim characters sponsored by ICNA were Imam Siraj Wahhaj and Amir Abdel Malik Ali. Both are racist haters.

 

Siraj Wahhaj:

 

Wahhaj is infamous for having been named as a possible co-conspirator to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, which left six people dead and scores of others injured. The list, where Wahhaj’s name is found, was compiled by U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White, who led the prosecution in the trial to convict those responsible for the bombing.

 

Along with Wahhaj’s name, on the list are Osama bin Laden; bin Laden’s mentor Abdullah Azzam; and Fawaz Damra, an individual who will soon be deported for his involvement in Palestinian Islamic Jihad. (Americans Against Hate)

 

Here is another dose of Islamic Supremacism.

 

About the United States government:  “In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing.  And the only thing that will remain will be Islam.”

 

About Osama bin Laden’s involvement in the September 11th attacks:  “I’m just not so sure I want to be one of the ones who say, ‘Yeah, he did it. He’s a horrible man.’”

 

About the stoning of women accused of adultery:  “If Allah says stone them to death, through the Prophet Muhammad, then you stone them to death, because it’s the obedience of Allah and his messenger — nothing personal.” (Terror U; Joe Kaufman, FrontPageMag.com, January 21, 2005)

 

Amir Abdel Malik Ali:

 

A fervent admirer of the famed Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X, Malik-Ali is a leader of the As-Sabiqun movement which is inspired by Malcolm’s work and life. He is also part of the Al-Masjid movement which is dedicated to creating an Islamic revolution in the United States. His ultimate goal is to see Islamic law instituted in America, and he refers to those who oppose this objective as “poop-butts.” “From an Islamic movement we graduate to an Islamic revolution,” he says, “then to an Islamic state. . . . We must implement Islam as a totality [in which] Allah controls every place — the home, the classroom, the science lab, the halls of Congress.” (Discover The Networks, profile)

 

Here are some more Discover The Networks Malik Ali quote examples:

 

· “The enemies of Islam know that when we come back to power we’re gonna check ’em.”

 

· “Stay conscious and ask Allah to raise the Muslims and give us victory over the disbeliever.”

 

· “When it’s all over, the only one standing is gonna be us [Muslims].”

 

· “Sooner or later, today’s Muslim students will be the parents of Muslim children. And they should be militants.”

 

· “Neo-cons are all Zionist Jews.”

 

· “The wars against Iraq [Gulf War and Operation Iraqi Freedom] were manufactured by the Jews in America to avert attention from the two [Palestinian] Intifadas.”

 

· “You [Jews] made all the mistakes we wanted you to make. You went after [former Georgia congresswoman] Cynthia McKinney. So now black folks don’t like you…. You’re walking into all the traps we want you to walk into. You hijacked American foreign policy.”

 

· “[T]he Israelis were in control of 9-11,” which “was staged to give an excuse to wage war against Muslims around the world.”

 

· Israelis ought to return “to Germany, to Poland, to Russia. The Germans should hook y’all up. You [Israelis] should go back to Germany.”

 

· “In America, you’re mostly fighting with your tongue, but you should also learn how to fight with the sword.”

 

· At the Sixth Annual Muslim Student Association Conference held at UC Berkeley in February 2004, Malik-Ali denounced “the white man, who is the enemy.”

 

· At the Universal Heritage Foundation’s December 2003 Islamic Conference in Florida, he warned moderate American Muslims that their desire to be “liked” was turning them into “‘house slaves’ in the mansion of a racist, imperialistic and destructive America.”

 

· He has described Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a “pretty good guy.”

 

Wahhaj and Malik Ali are not nice guys and are promoters of the purist Islam of Mohammed’s which is not a nice period in Islamic history even though all Muslims – moderate and radical – regard that period and the years of the Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs and a few afterwards to be Islam’s golden age.

 

Wahhaj and Malik Ali’s were sponsored to speak by ICNA in Yorba Linda, CA in which the Tea Party Conservatives protested. The thing is some of the protesters were a bit more exuberant in their protest shouting ugly epithets toward Muslims and about Islam which appeared a bit threatening and similar to the Muslim crazies who hit the streets in a frenzy when they feel their Islamic Supremacism is insulted. Two wrongs do not make a right.

 

According to ACT for America the exuberant protesters were not part of the original protest. These protesters hung around the door of the speech location well after the organized protest. And yet ICNA’s fellow radical Islamic organization CAIR put together a highly edited video intended for the eyes of Muslims and Muslim apologists which deceptively included the organized portion of the protest melded with the impromptu insults of a few protesters that hung around after the original protest rally. Actually the video was created by the local CAIR-CA Chapter. I am simply uncertain if CAIR intentionally made sure their California Chapter was the video originator to claim plausible deniability if it came out that the video was a deceptive hatched job or not. For me that question is irrelevant because CAIR is noted for utilizing propaganda and Legal Jihad in an attempt to silence their critics. A few people that have confronted CAIR about radical Islam and terrorist connections are:

 

· Andrew Whitehead of Anti-CAIR (ACAIR)

 

· Joe Kaufman (actually ICNA and local Muslim groups sued Kaufman)

 

· Dave & Chris Gaubatz of Muslim Mafia exposé

 

Is the deceitful CAIR-CA video a prelude to a civil suit? A legal Jihad suit on a local level would enable the CAIR national group protection from the discovery legal strategy that has been used effectively in the past to stop CAIR and other radical Islamic associated groups from civil suit extortions.

 

ACT for America sent an email to deny they had any connection with the protesters that hung around after the organized protest. In that email there was a link to a YouTube version of the CAIR-CA deceptive video. The YouTube version has since been taken down with the explanation it infringed on the copyright of an individual known as George Collins. I did a Bing search and found a link to the CAIR-CA website that has a link to what I believe is the video ACT for America linked to. I don’t know how long the video link will be available. I suspect that the more ‘expose CAIR’ bloggers find it as I did and expose the video as typical Islamic taqiyya (deception), then CAIR-CA will remove the video.

 

 

Below is the ACT for America denial that they had anything to do with the outraged and exuberant protesters that most pc people believe went over the top with epithets hurled at Muslims. By the way, Muslims who lie by denying they have anything to do with Islamic terrorism or the promotion of an Islamic revolution to bring Sharia Law to America ending the U.S. Constitution and Civil Rights for non-Muslim Americans.

CAIR-California’s Deceptive Video Smears ACT! for America


A video (SlantRight Editor: YouTube removed) put out by CAIR’s (Council on American-Islamic Relations) California affiliate circulating the internet is grossly deceptive and demands a response.
The video is actually an edited stringing together of at least three different videos, shot at different times and in two different places.
FACT: There was a peaceful rally of approximately 800 people in Yorba Linda, California, which was addressed by numerous public officials. You can see a few shots of the speakers on the CAIR-CA video.
FACT: There was a small group of protestors who were disrespectfully heckling Muslims entering a building. This group of protestors was separate from the larger rally. Indeed, you will note on the video that most of the video of the protestors occurred when it was dark—well after the larger rally had ended.
The video falsely claims ACT! for America “sponsored” this protest where the heckling occurred.


FACT: ACT! for America did not sponsor either the protest or the peaceful rally. ACT! for America did not organize either event. ACT! for America sent out emails informing people that there was a peaceful rally scheduled to take place at the Yorba Linda Community Center.

FACT: ACT! for America does not encourage, support or condone the kind of tactics employed by some of the protestors. Anyone who reads our emails would know that we always encourage peaceful, respectful grassroots action. We are confident the truth about radical Islam speaks for itself, and the kind of tactics employed by some of the protestors we consider abhorrent, disrespectful and counterproductive.
FACT: The purpose of the event we informed people about was to let the Yorba Linda Community Center know that it had booked two radical Islamists, Siraj Wahhaj and Anur-Abel Malik-Ali. Malik-Ali has, among other things, denounced the “white man” as “the enemy.” Wahhaj has called for “war” and “jihad” against America, including jihad with “uzis.” Our email stated: Politely ask them to cancel the event.
ACT! for America believes men like Wahhaj and Malik-Ali should be exposed for their radicalism. This is why we informed people about the event intended for that purpose.
What’s more, emails put out in advance of the rally by the ACT! for America Corona (CA) chapter stated “Unite in Peaceful Protest…” and “This is a peaceful, lawful gathering…”
What Siraj Wahhaz and Anur-Abel Malik-Ali have said is repugnant.
What the heckling protestors did was repugnant.
And what CAIR-California did, smearing ACT! for America by falsely claiming ACT! for America sponsored the heckling protest and implying that ACT! for America encourages such behavior, was also repugnant.

There are many comparisons to the occurrences in Egypt to the President Carter support of the Iranian Revolution in the name of Democratic self-determination and anti-despotism. The now deceased Shah of Iran (Reza Pahlavi) was a despot; however from a Western perspective his only actual intolerance was toward those who were against his rule and the Westernization of Iran. Unfortunately the Shah’s intolerance was particularly brutal and it did include a secret police organization known as Savak. Undoubtedly Savak carried out numerous suspensions of civil and human rights in the name of keeping the Shah in power. The mere existence of a Savak police State did not make Iranians happy with their ruler. So when rioting began against the Shah probably with a little President Carter subterfuge, an Ayatollah in exile for being against the Shah would immediately become a symbol of Islamic faith and deliverance from the Shah’s intense repressive desire to remain the Monarch of Iran. The Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini return from exile triggered the reminiscence of Shia Twelver theopolitical ideology that perhaps the return of the Hidden Imam was imminent due to the chaos in Iran. Little did the Iranian people know is that Khomeini would signify a despotic repression making the Shah’s repression look like a picnic.

 

Egypt has the Sunni version of purist Islam which many call Radical or Salafist and also looks back to the days of Mohammed as the measurement of living and governing society. The Salafists may not be looking for a Hidden Imam like Shia Twelvers; however they believe the reestablishment of a Caliphate would begin again the quest to bring Islam (the Sunni kind) to the whole world. The largest Salafists in Egypt is the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) also known by its more Islamic name as Ikhwan. The MB considers themselves part of the Sunnis (90% of Islam) although some Sunnis do not consider Salafism as Sunni. Anyway, the MB End Times scenario is Sunni in which the Mahdi will become the Caliph (Khalifah) and begin the final push to Islamize the world. Check this out from a pro-Sunni website:

 

– The Mahdi (Mehdi) is not the “Messiah” of Muslims.

 

Muslims recognize Jesus Christ as Messiah and this is very clearly mentioned in the Quran.

 

– Sunni Muslims are expecting 3 main individuals to appear in the End Times: (1) at least one caliph (ruler) whose is referred to as Mahdi (good man), (2) Anti-Christ (evil man), and (3) Jesus Christ (good man).

 

– Sunni Muslims are expecting Jesus to return to Earth, by descending from Heaven.

 

– For Sunni Muslims, the Mahdi (Mehdi) is a unique Muslim leader who will appear in the End Times and act as a Caliph, ruling the Muslim World. He is not a prophet. According to our numerical analysis of the Quran, it seems that the Mahdi will be fulfilling a divine mission and will act as a Warner and Carrier of Good News.

 

– Most probably, shortly after Jesus descends from Heaven, the Mahdi will die and Jesus will become the Caliph of Muslims.

 

– For Sunni Muslims, Jesus will play a very important role. Jesus will kill the Anti-Christ and rule the World after the Mahdi dies and Jesus’ reign will be longer.

 

– For the Shia, the Mahdi’s role is far more important than Jesus’ role. The Shia believe that the Mahdi (not Jesus) will be the one who will kill the Anti-Christ. Shia even claim that the Mahdi will kill Satan. (Sunni Muslims’ Al-Mahdi (Mehdi))

 

The Muslim Brotherhood tweaks this by adding the concept that the Ummah (Muslim Community) can rise to the occasion to reestablish the Caliphate.

 

Prophet Mohammad … has accurately prophesied the governing methods that came to be followed after him and has prophesied that the proper Caliphate system will be applied again around the end of time. The Mahdi (Mehdi) is expected to rule as a proper Caliph. (Ibid. Section 2)

 

Big Peace participated in a series investigating the affect of Sharia Law in America in which an article entitled, “The Genesis of the Muslim Brotherhood,” posts an English translation of the MB statement for its reason to exist:

 

The Muslim Brotherhood’s bylaws make clear the organization’s objectives and how it intends to achieve them:

 

“The Muslim Brotherhood is an International Muslim body which seeks to establish Allah’s law in the land by achieving the spiritual goals of Islam and the true religion which are namely the following: . . . (F) the need to work on establishing the Islamic State; [and] (G) The sincere support for a global cooperation in accordance with the provisions of the Islamic Sharia.”

 

Chapter II, Article 3 of the MB’s bylaws states:

 

“The Muslim Brotherhood in achieving these objectives depends on the following means: . . . (D) Make every effort for the establishment of educational, social, economic, and scientific institutions and the establishment of mosques, schools, clinics, shelters, clubs, as well as the formation of committees to regulate zakat affairs and alms; (E) The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing the Islamic state.”

 

The MB’s propaganda machine has convinced the West that its drive for the Caliphate is a peaceful exercise; however the Salafist organization’s own by-laws state peaceful means is only one path. When it comes to the point in which MB views tyranny (i.e. Islamic despots like Mubarak) and the enemies of Allah (i.e. Jews, Israel, Christian America or anyone espousing Western values) are resisting the Caliphate, then it is time to fight. And by “fighting” it is not meant to fight with the might of the pen, rather the fight is the might of the sword.

 

The MB has become the Sultan of Stealth Jihad. They promise non-violence but praise the actions of Islamic terrorists like Hamas, al Qaeda and homicidal suicide bombers who act for Mohammed, Allah and the good of the Ummah. The Stealth Jihad of the MB is to matriculate into a hated system to gain power and then secure power with violence. It is the example of Mohammed himself who fled from Mecca to Medina and slowly acquired power among the tribal Medina ruling elites. Once the power existed to challenge Mohammed’s rivals they were forced into allegiance or exterminated. The Jewish Medinans which were many experienced extermination and banishment in the cause of Allah.

 

Banna [al Banna the founder of MB] was a practical revolutionary. On the one hand, he instructed his votaries to prepare for violence. They had to understand that, in the end — when the time was right, when the Brotherhood was finally strong enough that violent attacks would more likely achieve Ikhwan objectives than provoke crippling blowback — violence would surely be necessary to complete the revolution (meaning, to institute sharia, Islam’s legal-political framework). Meanwhile, on the other hand, he taught that the Brothers should take whatever they could get from the regime, the political system, the legal system, and the culture. He shrewdly realized that, if the Brothers did not overplay their hand, if they duped the media, the intelligentsia, and the public into seeing them as fighters for social justice, these institutions would be apt to make substantial concessions. Appeasement, he knew, is often a society’s first response to a threat it does not wish to believe is existential. {Fear the Muslim Brotherhood; Andrew C. McCarthy; 1/31/11)

 

And read this:

 

Occasionally, the Brotherhood condemns terrorist attacks, but not because it regards terrorist violence as wrong per se. Instead, attacks are criticized either as situationally condemnable (al-Qaeda’s 1998 embassy bombings, though directed at American interests, killed many Muslims and were not supported by an authoritative fatwa), or as counterproductive (the 9/11 attacks provoked a backlash that resulted in the invasion and occupation of Muslim countries, the killing of many Muslims, and severe setbacks to the cause of spreading Islam). Yet, on other occasions, particularly in the Arab press, the Ikhwan embraces violence — fueling Hamas and endorsing the murder of Americans in Iraq.

 

In addition, the Brotherhood even continues to lionize Osama bin Laden. In 2008, for example, “Supreme Guide” Muhammad Mahdi Akef lauded al-Qaeda’s emir, saying that bin Laden is not a terrorist at all but a “mujahid,” a term of honor for a jihad warrior. The Supreme Guide had “no doubt” about bin Laden’s “sincerity in resisting the occupation,” a point on which he proclaimed bin Laden “close to Allah on high.” Yes, Akef said, the Brotherhood opposed the killing of “civilians” — and note that, in Brotherhood ideology, one who assists “occupiers” or is deemed to oppose Islam is not a civilian. But Akef affirmed the Brotherhood’s support for al-Qaeda’s “activities against the occupiers.” (Ibid.)

 

The MB gaining control of Egypt will be like Hitler gaining control of Germany or like Khomeini getting control of Iran. Friends this is not good for Western Liberty, Israel as a haven for Jews who cannot trust Gentile governments and especially not good for Exceptionalist America.

 

Now check this out: President Barack Hussein Obama made sure there was a MB presence at his blame America speech in Cairo in 2009. Keep in mind BHO is not special even though he is suspicious, because the U.S. government via the State Department and Presidential Administration involvement have cultivated an on-again and off-again relationship with the MB and other Salafist groups for years depending on the National Interests perceived for a short term gain. It seems the long term/big picture outlook has been a failure of American government for years.

 

The Obama administration has courted Egyptian Islamists from the start. It invited the Muslim Brotherhood to the president’s 2009 Cairo speech, even though the organization is officially banned in Egypt. It has rolled out the red carpet to the Brotherhood’s Islamist infrastructure in the U.S. — CAIR, the Muslim American Society, the Islamic Society of North America, the Ground Zero mosque activists — even though many of them have a documented history of Hamas support. To be sure, the current administration has not been singular in this regard. The courting of Ikhwan-allied Islamists has been a bipartisan project since the early 1990s, and elements of the intelligence community and the State Department have long agitated for a license to cultivate the Brotherhood overtly. They think what Anwar Sadat thought: Hey, we can work with these guys. (Ibid.)

 

This short sightedness seems to be a particular political weakness of President Barack Hussein Obama who has had relationships with people in America that have close associations with the MB or are big time apologists for MB goals. BHO is either a Chamberlain-like idiot or he is in collusion with MB goals for the self-interest of destroying Western culture to bring about Marxist transformation he called “Change” in his 2008 campaign promises.

Mubarak is Leaving One Way or the Other


Cairo Unrest 1-28-11

A crazy “throw the bums out” grassroots move has begun to spread across Muslim North Africa thanks to mob intimidation began in Tunisia. Although economics is undoubtedly the cause of regime change among despotic Muslim nations, the Muslims who wish to reform Islam to hearken back to the blood thirsty days of their Prophet Mohammed and the Prophet’s idea of converting the world to Islam are exploiting the unrest to become the leadership of the mob desiring change.

 

Egypt is succumbing big time to the Muslim mob unrest. Couple this that the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is the largest political opposition to Egyptian President Mubarak’s regime, there is a fuse lit that is searching for the bomb that will ignite the Egyptian support of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Mubarak and rule Egypt.

 

The MB is the Sunni version of Iran’s lunatic Shia Twelvers that gave the Shah of Iran the boot to replace him with the repressive theopolitical dictatorship of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. An MB success in wresting control of political control of Egypt would mean that the Salafist style of Islam would make the rules of governance in Egypt. This means hearkening back to strict observance of Sharia Law and possible establishment of a Caliphate. Egypt is the most populous Muslim nation in Africa (Nigeria is the most populous nation in Africa and Indonesia is the most population Muslim nation). Egypt’s population would make the nation a prime candidate to enthrone a Caliph especially since the most learned Islamic University known as Al Azhar is located in Cairo Egypt. The existence of a Caliphate undoubtedly will awaken Muslim courage to invade Israel to attempt to execute another Jewish Holocaust.

 

Check this out: STRATFOR has sent out an alert that the MB and the Palestinian terrorists known as Hamas are crossing the Gaza-Egyptian border to aid in destabilizing Egypt:

 

The following is a report from a STRATFOR source in Hamas. Hamas, which formed in Gaza as an outgrowth of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood (MB), has an interest in exaggerating its role and coordination with the MB in this crisis. The following information has not been confirmed. Nonetheless, there is a great deal of concern building in Israel and the United States in particular over the role of the MB in the demonstrations and whether a political opening will be made for the Islamist organization in Egypt.

The Egyptian police are no longer patrolling the Rafah border crossing into Gaza. Hamas armed men are entering into Egypt and are closely collaborating with the MB. The MB has fully engaged itself in the demonstrations, and they are unsatisfied with the dismissal of the Cabinet. They are insisting on a new Cabinet that does not include members of the ruling National Democratic Party.

 

Security forces in plainclothes are engaged in destroying public property in order to give the impression that many protesters represent a public menace. The MB is meanwhile forming people’s committees to protect public property and also to coordinate demonstrators’ activities, including supplying them with food, beverages and first aid.

 

The MB enjoys telling the West the propaganda taqiyya that it is no longer a militant Islamist organization, but rather a disseminator of peaceful da’wa to convince Muslims to reform and hearken back to the days of Mohammed. Hamas is definitely militant and it is a terrorist organization AND Hamas is directly a subset of the MB among Arabs that call themselves Palestinians.

 

The one ironic element that might deliver Egypt from the Islamist MB is the Egyptian Army which might accomplish a coup against Mubarak which will bring in a rule of Generals rather than radical Muslim political entities. Egyptian Generals are not Islamist; rather the Generals are self-interested in maintaining a stable Egypt that excludes the Muslim Brotherhood. The unknown variable is that the rank and file Officers in the Egyptian Army is a bunch of MB sympathizers.

 

This hearkens back to the days just after WWII when a Colonel Gamal Abdel Nasser in the Egyptian Army with the aid of the Muslim Brotherhood exacted a mid-level Army coup against the British installed Egyptian Monarchy. The scary thing was the Muslim Brotherhood was highly connected to defeated Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler in the sense of European support against British suzerainty and a mutual hatred of Jews.

 

Nasser’s alliance did not stick long. Nasser eventually turned against the MB to aggrandize his political power to become a military dictator in Egypt. Nasser illegalized the MB and assassinated its early ideological leaders. This forced the MB to become a militant underground movement inside of Egypt. Over the years the MB still managed to gain Egyptian Muslim popularity and today runs candidates under other political auspices in Egypt’s legislature.

 

Although an Egyptian Army coup led by the Generals might solve the immediate concerns of the Egyptian populace and assuage fears of nations such as America and Israel, the Generals may fear another mid-level rank and file Officer coup similar to Nasser’s rise to power. The MB has infiltrated the rank and file of the Egyptian Army.

 

STRATFOR has a better elaboration of the possibilities that might arise with Mubarak receiving the boot as the dictator of Egypt.

America Reassess your Perception of Islam


Sharia & Liberty

John R. Houk

I know it is not politically correct to say so nonetheless it is time to change the way Americans view Islam. Unlike Christianity, Islam is just as political as it is theological. Granted the majority of Muslims in the West are more theologically minded than political; however the essence of Mohammed’s message was to spread Islam in a political-military fashion. Mohammed realized after his Mecca experience in receiving the boot for peacefully trying to convince polytheists to worship a monotheistic all-knowing deity.

 

Mohammed eventually began to realize that the power of the sword is what got the attention of Medina polytheists, Jewish Arabs and the small amount of individual Christians. The matter of the sword combined with filial loyalty of tribal thinking eventually led to the conquest of Medina and the expulsion of Jewish monotheists that rejected Mohammed’s view of monotheism. Mohammed’s growing military power eventually led to the conquest of the city Mecca that had given him the boot. From their Mohammed and his following successors conquered the Arabian Peninsula, Middle Eastern Arabs, Persians (Iranians), India, North Africa and parts of Europe. None of the Muslim armies were invited because of a voluntary desire to convert to Islam; however once the Muslim armies conquered lands people began to convert in order to live a life free of oppression. Then Islamic intolerance was drilled into the conquered that following generations became committed to the theopolitical nature of Islam.

 

I have no doubt that those called moderate Muslims do not condemn those known as radical Muslims because their very holy texts confirm the desires that radical Muslims are attempting to accomplish. Muslims in America may be primarily devoted to theology; however the money of radical Islam is slowly gaining influence in American Mosques radicalizing younger Muslims to Mohammed’s early theopolitical in instilling Islam globally.

 

This is what Americans need to think about when viewing Muslims. It is religious profiling. Know this: theological minded American-Muslims are a holy text heartbeat away from seeing the radical Muslim view of life.

 

Raymond Ibrahim is an anti-Islamist writer that attempts to awaken Americans to the potential of an early Muslim-like revival. ACT for America as part of an email promotion of their new television program also sent an Ibrahim article “Radical Muslims in America”.

Call to Destroy Israel by Any Means – in Washington, DC


A Muslim-American professor from Lincoln University in Pennsylvania at an anti-Israel rally in Washington, DC called for the total eradication of Israel and the murder of Jews in the process. The religion of peace professor’s name is Kaukab Siddique. Remarkably Lincoln University claims Siddique’s Jew-hatred is a Free Speech issue and not a reflection of the University. This means oldest college founded as an African-American will not fire Siddique for his overt racist views. How absurd is that?

TiZA Joins Muslim Mafia?


Tarik ibn Zehad Gibraltar PD Sterling

John R. Houk

The term Muslim Mafia (SA HERE) has been an appellation associated with CAIR by authors Dave Gaubatz and Paul Sperry. The term Muslim Mafia in actuality can refer to numerous Muslim-American organizations that have deep ties to the Muslim Brotherhood or other Salafi-like Muslims either in the USA or exerting theopolitical ideology from a foreign nation.

 

Some of these Salafi or what many would call radical Islamic ties has extended to Muslim enclaves and schools in America. And when I say school I mean Public School utilizing taxpayer funds to educate K-12 students to drill the tenets of radical Islam into young minds.

 

One such case is a Muslim Charter School in Minnesota called Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TiZA). ACT for America has sent an email that is facilitating information of the Islamist nature of a Public School receiving taxpayer funds. TiZA has become so abusive in its secrecy that it is utilizing Lawfare and thuggery threats to keep the public from knowing that the Islamic religion is part of the curriculum of the school. The thought behind the TiZA Public School is to provide an environment of Middle Eastern Culture influenced by Islam to students that either have roots to the Middle East or are foreign students from an Islamic Culture. That premise is crazy enough since it is NOT conducive to assimilation to American Culture. The crime is TiZA’s infusion of Islamic religious practice (probably Islamist) on the public dime. AND here is the amazing tidbit of information: The TiZA mafia has angered the deep pockets of the ACLU!

 

The very name of the school should give pause to Americans. TiZA was named after its namesake (which many variations of spelling). Tarek (Tariq) ibn Ziyad invades Christian Spain in 711 AD. Ibn Ziyad’s victory over Visigothic ruler King Roderick spelled the beginning of brutal and humiliating oppression Spanish Christians under Islamic rule. It is kind of like naming a Public School in American culture Benedict Arnold High School.

A Must-Read: TiZA intimidation tactics

Taxpayer-funded charter school even fighting the ACLU

 

Sent by: ACT for America’

Sent: 10/19/2010 11:58 AM

 

In early 2008 journalist Katherine Kersten broke a story about suspected inappropriate Islamic activities in a public, taxpayer-funded charter school, the Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TiZA).

 

When ACT! for America learned of this we swung into action. Chapter leaders contacted local and state officials. Letters to the editor were sent to newspapers. Guy Rodgers, ACT! for America Executive Director, talked with an official at the Minnesota Department of Education (MDOE) regarding a possible investigation.

 

MDOE did launch an investigation, and cited TiZA for two violations of law. During that time, a TiZA official assaulted a news cameraman.

 

Then the ACLU sued TiZA, alleging improper religious activity at a public school.

 

Not surprisingly, as Kersten reports below (highlights added), TiZA is engaging in intimidation and non-compliance tactics to prevent exposure of what it has been doing behind the closed doors of its school—a public school, paid for with tax dollars!!!

Katherine Kersten: TiZA vs. the search for truth

http://www.startribune.com/opinion/commentary/105067899.html?page=3&c=y

 

The battle over the role of Islam in a Minnesota public school is heating up again in a federal courtroom in St. Paul. The conflict began in January 2009, when the ACLU of Minnesota sued Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy — a K-8 charter school with campuses in Inver Grove Heights and Blaine — for violating constitutional prohibitions against government endorsement of religion.

TiZA since has fought tooth and nail — erecting procedural barriers to prevent the ACLU from investigating what goes on behind its doors. The school’s tactics have gone far beyond the usual rough-and-tumble of lawyers in our adversary system. Its chief tool has been attempted intimidation of all who would draw back the curtain on its secrets.

 

One of TiZA’s first targets was the ACLU itself. A few months after the suit began, the school filed a $100,000-plus defamation claim, citing ACLU executive director Chuck Samuelson’s simple statement that “[TiZA is] a theocratic school … as plain as the substantial nose on my face.” The court dismissed the claim.

 

In January 2010, the ACLU was back in court to seek a protective order, on grounds that intimidation by TiZA was discouraging potential witnesses from appearing. The ACLU filed affidavits by a former TiZA parent and a former TiZA staff member, who described what they interpreted as threats of violence against them. In her affidavit, the female staff member said that Asad Zaman — TiZA’s executive director — had suggested after she displeased him: “We could just kill you, yeah tell your husband we’ll do his job for him.” (Zaman has no recollection of making such a statement, he said in an affidavit.) The court barred witness harassment or intimidation by either party.

 

In June 2010, the ACLU returned to court to quash what it described as yet another TiZA attempt to intimidate current and former employees from speaking about what they had seen at the public school. TiZA’s “Staff Handbooks include a secrecy clause, and related threat of legal action for violating it,” according to the ACLU’s court filings. TiZA “wields [these provisions] as a sledgehammer to keep former employees quiet about what they saw at the school.” As a result, “former TiZA employees have expressed fear about speaking to the ACLU.”

 

According to the ACLU, TiZA’s refusal to agree not to enforce the secrecy clause “sends the ominous signal that current and former employees who talk to the ACLU may be forced to defend themselves against a baseless, expensive lawsuit.”

 

On Oct. 1, Judge Donovan Frank agreed — affirming an order the ACLU had earlier won barring TiZA from enforcing the confidentiality clause in the context of this litigation.

The court’s order and memorandum spoke volumes: “It appears that information related to TiZA’s business, finances, operations and office procedures is public data and cannot be kept secret.” “The relevant question … is why TiZA, a public charter school, does not want to allow its former and current employees to participate in the informal discovery process to ascertain the truth about how TiZA operates.”

 

The court’s strong language in response to TiZA’s actions was unusual: “[I]ntimidation and threats will not sit well with a fact-finder such as a jury.” As a result of the school’s actions, “[T]he Court may be required to draw adverse inferences about how TiZA operates as a result of TiZA’s efforts to keep information about its operations secret. … [TiZA’s] behavior during the discovery process thus far … has not been consistent with a good faith search for the truth.”

 

The ACLU has characterized TiZA’s recent actions regarding the secrecy clause as “only the last in a long line of intimidation efforts.” Not quite. Last month, an attack was launched from a different front.

 

Several organizations that are not even parties to the lawsuit went to court in an attempt to disqualify the ACLU’s lawyers — Dorsey & Whitney — from representing the ACLU on grounds that Dorsey personnel had previously communicated with Zaman about entities involved in the litigation. The organizations include the Muslim American Society of Minnesota (MAS-MN), MAS-MN Property Holding Corporation and the Minnesota Education Trust (MET).

 

What might they fear? Perhaps that Dorsey lawyers are in a position to prove that the scandal thus far — and Zaman’s role in it — is just the tip of the iceberg. Dorsey lawyers had this to say in a Sept. 10 letter filed with the court:

 

“The ACLU believes Mr. Zaman’s testimony relating to control of virtually every significant event at TiZA, MAS-MN, MET and MET’s subsidiaries, coupled with his efforts to hide such control, constitute powerful evidence against TiZA’s denials that it is a Muslim school and that it funnels state and federal money to other Muslim organizations.”

 

Every time we read about this lawsuit, we have to pinch ourselves and say: We’re talking about a public, taxpayer-funded school.

Katherine Kersten is a Twin Cities writer and speaker.

Yes Virginia, Ikhwan is a Danger to America


Mohammed Badie - MB Leader

John R. Houk

© October 13, 2010

 

The Muslim Brotherhood (MB or Ikhwan) could be described as the progenitor radical Islamist thought. The MB has embraced large segments of the theopolitical Islam which can be described as Salafism and Wahhabism. The Wahhabi movement of Saudi Arabia origin is the primary context of al-Qaeda’s call for a global Caliphate, an Islamic reform movement for the religion to return to the purist thought of the days of Mohammed and Islam’s earliest Caliphs and for the community of Islam (Ummah) to fight violently for those ideals even if the collateral damage is kafir civilians or Muslims viewed as diluting Islam’s purity.

 

There are similarities with Saudi Wahhabism; however the MB has its very own writers that have established the Salafi concept of returning Islam back to its brutal origins. These origins magnify the reality of the theopolitical Islam conquering the world for Islam and converting kafir by the threat of death or by dealing out heavy diabolical oppression on the conquered. The oppression led to conversions to Islam by Middle Eastern and North African Christians that dominated those areas prior to the extremist conquest by Islam’s early Caliphs.

 

Part of Islam’s success in securing the conquests was to entrench Islamic Supremacism among the ever growing decisions for Islam and among the ever shrinking minority of kafir-Christians. Islamic theopolitical propagandizing secured Islam as the supreme religion wherever Islam was able to secure conquered land. After the new Muslims began having offspring then the Islamic Supremacist paradigm was drilled upon future generations. The result as related to the present: The existence of a population devoted to Islam. In the late 19th century through the present 21st century the theopolitical paradigm has kept out potential rival religions. The Islamic community with often direct collaboration between Muslim Clerics and Muslim governments has codified punishment for preaching an alternate religion or for a Muslim to renounce Islam. In most Islamic nations doing either will result in a rule of law death penalty conviction. Today even the few Islamic nations that have proscribed the death penalty for Muslim apostates will look the other way as a devoted Islamic family hunts down the apostate and kills that person for family honor.

 

The Muslim Brotherhood is not pleased with the still present oppressive of murdering proselytizing Christians and apostate Muslims. As far as the MB is concerned that is a status quo practice of Islam that is ever being influenced from Western non-Muslim nations (dar al-harb) dilute Mohammed’s original Islam. The MB believes this must be stopped even if this means the utilization of violence in Muslim nations (dar al-Islam) and violence against Western nations (and Western style nations such as Israel). A Muslim will be quick to tell a kafir that the Greater Jihad is the inner struggle to become victorious in the fight against sin. Accordingly most Muslims will tell a kafir that the Lesser Jihad is Islam’s struggle non-Muslim peoples which must end in victory for Islam. The Salafis and Wahhabis, of which the MB is a card carrying member, would reverse the order the order of the importance of the Greater and Lesser Jihad. As much as most Muslims may presently feel the most important Jihad is the peaceful Greater (i.e. inner struggle) Jihad, it is the loud voice of Salafi/Wahhabi/MB that is gaining the attention of Islam’s youth globally to fight the Lesser (violent-murderous) Jihad. Indeed a close study of the Quran and understanding Islamic theopolitical concepts as “Abrogation” will show that the so-called Lesser Jihad is in actuality the Greater Jihad.

 

Let’s zero back on the Muslim Brotherhood a bit. The MB came into existence in 1928 with its founder Hasan al-Banna in Egypt. Al-Banna hated Western ideals of civil rights and democratic institutions. Since al-Banna believed in violence to reform Islamic society and reestablish the Caliphate, he found a non-Muslim supremacist who also hated the ideals of civil rights and the process of democratic institutions. That was Nazi Germany’s Adolf Hitler. Hitler and Jerusalem’s Grand Mufti al Husseini had mutual Jew-hatred. With Nazi backing al Husseini inspired Arab led uprisings and terrorism against the Palestine Mandate governing British and against Jews flooding into the Mandated land because of the promise of a Jewish national homeland. Al Husseini actually took a trip to Berlin to meet with Adolf. Al Husseini convinced Adolf to support Arab nationalism. In return al Husseini aided in forming SS divisions of the then Yugoslavian Muslims (remnants of Ottoman conquest) to carry out the plan of the Final Solution for Jews. Al Banna and al Husseini had hooked up possibly for different reasons; nonetheless al Husseini became the conduit to Nazi ideology which al Banna admired in principle.

 

Nasser and the MB were buddies working to expel British influence in Egypt. After Nasser betrayed the MB after his military coup that kicked out the European installed King he made the Muslim Brotherhood illegal. The Egyptian ruling elite between Nasser, Sadat and now aged Mubarak have intensified and relaxed the illegality of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.

 

In 2005 the MB surprised Egypt’s ruling elite by capturing 1/5 of the Egyptian Parliament running as independents. The MB ran as Independents because the political wing was still illegal. On the November 29 Parliamentary elections of 2010 the MB’s new leader claims the Independents running in support of the MB are shooting for 30% of the seats.

 

Now 30% does not sound like a threat that an Islamist government will come to power in Egypt does it? Here are some to think about. Egypt’s President Mubarak has been in power for nearly 30 years. Mubarak is 82 years old and has terminal stomach cancer. Egypt has had only three Presidents from the time King Farouk got the boot: Nasser, Sadat and Mubarak. I’d say it is pretty definite a leadership will be happening soon in Egypt.

 

The presumed replacement for President Hosni Mubarak is his son Gamal Mubarak. The MB’s English speaking website – IkhwanWeb – is not so keen on little Gamal replacing Dad:

 

Egypt’s opposition forces and Western advocates of democracy promotion all seem to agree on one thing: Gamal Mubarak should not be allowed to succeed his father Hosni Mubarak as President of Egypt.

 

The IkhwanWeb article proceeds to give a few reasons affirming that Gamal should not become a President via a rigged election inheritance.

 

It is my belief that the Muslim Brotherhood agenda of global Islamic domination ala the Mohammed style is a reason Americans should be very concerned about increasingly growing popularity of the MB by the Egyptian populace.

 

In 1932 Adolf Hitler won his democratic election process that included numerous elections between the years 1932 – 1934. The highest percent of the electorate ever achieved during fairly decent yet intimidating vote was roughly 37% of the Reichstag. Rigged elections never produced more than roughly 44% for Hitler in Reichstag elections. Hitler always had less than 50% of the electorate’s vote. After many attempts to form a German government without Hitler, Franz von Papen engineered some back room politics to convince the aged von Hindenburg to appoint Hitler Chancellor in 1933.

 

If Hosni Mubarak dies soon after the November elections and the MB achieves its goal of 30% of Egypt’s Parliament I am guessing some Egyptian back room politicking will go on for what the power base is in Egypt. Gamal Mubarak has not had a military affiliation as Hosni Mubarak has had. Indeed, Nasser and Sadat both had military associations prior to becoming President. Egypt’s ruling elite is secured by the nation’s military and not by the will of the voters. When President Mubarak death occurs many believe Gamal has been groomed for succession. Is the Egyptian military willing to have a man that was successful in the UK with banking before coming home to become involved in politics to be the first non-military leader of the Egyptian Republic? Will the military ignore the wishes of President Mubarak’s will of succession and place a military man in the Egyptian Presidency?

 

If Military allows Gamal Mubarak or another civilian candidate to achieve the Office of Egyptian President, what will indicate of the power of Egypt’s Parliament? I am guessing the MB is banking on a Parliamentarian Egyptian government to enable the MB agenda to progress in Egypt. Perhaps the Egyptian military has secret Muslim Brotherhood members or sympathizers. Certainly an Egyptian Parliament infused with greater authority might place the Muslim Brotherhood with a little confused support from the Egyptian military to gain control of Egypt with about a 30% election support in the Egyptian Parliament.

 

Since Sadat made peace with Israel and recognized Israel as a sovereign nation, Egypt has been the beneficiary of American military hardware and technology. Thus the Soviet benefactor was given the boot before the Communist collapse that would occur later. Relations between Israel and Egypt are not exactly those of best friends however. Although America has honored it part of the Egypt/Israel peace by becoming Egypt’s new military and technological supporter, America has been nudging Egypt about human rights deficiencies.

 

America experienced a huge whole when Iran switched from being a superlative ally with the Shah to becoming a Cold War style superlative enemy under the Ayatollah theocracy. Could Egypt under the auspices of the Muslim Brotherhood become the Sunni version of a crazy nut job State like Iran? Could a Palestinian State created by the power of America, UK, EU and Russia become closely aligned with a Muslim Brotherhood controlled Egypt? Keep in mind Hamas is a Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood chapter that is still overtly devoted to Israel’s destruction and another Holocaust of Jewish people. Can you see how American technology might be the final coffin nail in a casket designed to bury Israel’s existence?

 

But the Muslim apologist retorts that the Muslim Brotherhood has sworn off violence that was espoused by founder al Banna and ideologues like Sayyid Qutb. Do not be deceived by Islamic propaganda. By swearing off violence the MB does not actually mean placing the goals of an international Caliphate or placing purist Islam of the days of Mohammed. It meant gaining acceptance in the West by stealth. This can be seen from a document found by Swiss authorities in November 2001 entitled “The Project”. The Project was all about turning North America and the USA in particular into an Islamic land.

 

The Muslim Brotherhood has very recently chosen a new leader – Muhammad Badi (or Mohammed Badie, et al). Badi seems unashamed to announce that violence must be unleashed on America; i.e. a Muslim Brotherhood declaration of war against the USA in the same format as al Qaeda terrorist Osama bin Laden.

Muslim Brotherhood declares war on U.S.

For years the Muslim Brotherhood has had a plan for “civilization jihad” against the West. The goal, stated in its strategic memorandum: “destroying the Western civilization from within.”

 

Brigitte Gabriel devoted an entire chapter to this in her best-selling book, They Must Be Stopped. (If you already have a copy, we encourage you to purchase another one and donate it to your local library.)

 

As the WorldNetDaily story below reveals (highlights added), the Muslim Brotherhood is openly moving to the next stage of jihad—violent jihad. Meanwhile, the Obama administration and numerous government agencies continue their failed policy of “outreach” to leaders and organizations affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. They hope against hope this will “marginalize” the “extremists.”

As Dr. Phil would say, “how’s that working out for you?”

Muslim Brotherhood ‘declares war’ on U.S.

Analyst compares leader’s sermon to bin Laden’s pre-9/11 warning

Five years before the 9/11 attacks, al-Qaida declared war on America, the West, Christians and Jews – and virtually no one noticed.

Now, a longtime observer of Islam is warning that a “war declaration” of potentially much greater significance has been made.

The Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Badi, who was elected only months ago, has “endorsed anti-American Jihad and pretty much every element in the al-Qaida ideology book,” writes Barry Rubin, author and director of the Global Research in International Affairs Center and editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs Journal.

 

The Brotherhood – the dominant Islamic organization in the West that has spawned most of the major Muslim terrorist groups, including al-Qaida, along with the largest “mainstream” organizations – is giving the signal that it is “ready to move from the era of propaganda and base-building to one of revolutionary action,” says Rubin.

 

Get “Muslim Mafia,” the book that exposed the Muslim Brotherhood and organizations like the Council on American Islamic Relations from the inside out, autographed, from WND’s Superstore!

In a sermon published Sept. 30 titled “How Islam Confronts the Oppression and Tyranny [against the Muslims],” Badi said waging jihad against both Israel and the United States is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded.

 

The remarks were delivered in a weekly sermon, published Sept. 30 on the Muslim Brotherhood’s website and translated into English by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

 

Governments trying to stop Muslims from fighting the U.S., he said, “are disregarding Allah’s commandment to wage jihad for His sake with [their] money and [their] lives, so that Allah’s word will reign supreme” over all non-Muslims.

Rubin concludes: “Let it be said that in September 2010, the Muslim Brotherhood, a group with 100 times more activists than al-Qaida, issued its declaration of war.”

 

He calls the sermon “one of those obscure Middle East events of the utmost significance that is ignored by the Western mass media, especially because they happen in Arabic, not English; by Western governments, because they don’t fit their policies; and by experts, because they don’t mesh with their preconceptions.”

 

The sermon is a signal to the Brotherhood’s hundreds of thousands of followers, Rubin says.

 

“Some of them will engage in terrorist violence as individuals or forming splinter groups; others will redouble their efforts to seize control of their countries and turn them into safe areas for terrorists and instruments for war on the West.”

 

Rubin calls Badi’s “explicit formulation of a revolutionary program” a “game-changer.”

 

“It should be read by every Western decision-maker and have a direct effect on policy because this development may affect people’s lives in every Western country,” he writes.

 

Some U.S. and Western leaders are urging engagement and partnership with the Brotherhood, Rubin notes, because they regard it as moderate. But the movement, founded in the 1920s in the wake of the collapse of the Ottoman Turkish empire, considers itself an instrument of the charge Muslims were given when Islam was founded 1,400 years ago – to make the Quran and Allah’s authority supreme over the entire world.

 

In a 1991 document titled “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” the Brotherhood stated the Muslim community “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

 

In his sermon, Badi declared Arab and Muslim regimes are betraying their people by failing to confront the Muslim’s real enemies, not only Israel but also the United States.

 

All Muslims are required by their religion to fight, he said: “They crucially need to understand that the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life.”

 

Asked by WND to assess Rubin’s conclusions, Robert Spencer, author and director of the website JihadWatch.org, said Rubin is right that “war against the West has been the Brotherhood’s program, according to captured internal documents, since at least 1982.”

 

“This sermon just crystallizes many of the ideas contained in those documents,” he told WND.

 

Spencer said be believes it’s possible that Badi’s sermon is a seminal declaration of war comparable to al-Qaida’s 1996 declaration.

 

“It certainly could be,” he said, “but I don’t see it as all that much qualitatively different from things they’ve said before. If they were dedicated as far back as 1991 to ‘eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within,’ this doesn’t seem to represent a huge departure.”

 

Call to arms

 

Rubin emphasizes the significance of the remarks coming from Badi. He explains that when a “marginal Muslim cleric” like Britain’s Anjem Choudary says that Islam will conquer the West and raise its flag over the White House, the remark can be treated as “wild rhetoric.”

 

“But when the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood says the same thing in Arabic, that’s a program for action, a call to arms for hundreds of thousands of people, and a national security threat to every Western country,” Rubin says.

 

Rubin notes the Muslim Brotherhood controls front groups recognized by Western governments and media as authoritative. Government officials in many countries meet with these groups, he says, asking them to be advisers for counter-terrorist strategies and national policies.

 

Prominent U.S. organizations launched by Muslim Brotherhood leaders include the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Students Association, North American Islamic Trust, the Islamic Society of North America, the American Muslim Council, the Muslim American Society and the International Institute of Islamic Thought.

 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR – a self-described civil rights group that has more than a dozen former and current leaders with known associations with violent jihad – is trying to keep alive a lawsuit against WND and two investigators behind the best-selling expose “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.”

CAIR’s origin as a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas is documented in “Muslim Mafia.” CAIR and some of its leaders were confirmed by the Justice Department as unindicted co-conspirators in the trial of the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation, which was convicted of helping fund Hamas.

 

Banner of the revolution

 

Rubin points out President Obama “speaks about a conflict limited solely to al-Qaida,” which “makes sense when referring to Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen.”

 

“Yet there is a far bigger and wider battle going on in which revolutionary Islamists seek to overthrow their own rulers and wage long-term, full-scale struggle against the West,” he says. “If it doesn’t involve violence right now, it will when they get strong enough or gain power.”

Three years ago, Rubin published a detailed analysis of the development, explaining that the “banner of the Islamist revolution in the Middle East today has largely passed to groups sponsored by or derived from the Muslim Brotherhood.”

 

The exposure, he writes, “so upset the Brotherhood that it put a detailed response on its official website to deny my analysis.”

 

“Yet now here is the Brotherhood’s new supreme guide, Muhammad Badi giving a sermon entitled, ‘How Islam Confronts the Oppression and Tyranny,'” Rubin says.

 

Badi’s interpretation, he says, is in tune with the stances and holy books of normative Islam.

 

“It is not the only possible interpretation, but it is a completely legitimate interpretation,” he says. “Every Muslim knows, even if he disagrees with the Brotherhood’s position, that this isn’t heresy or hijacking or misunderstanding.”
