Fox News Anchor Megyn Kelly: Well there’s a new film coming out that takes a look at a group called the Muslim Brotherhood and its influence around the world and here at home. The documentary is called The Grand Deception and it describes what the film makers call the dual nature of the Muslim Brotherhood. To the outside world it tries to present a moderate image, claim the film makers, all the while hiding more radical goals including goals for America. Here’s a clip from the trailer.

Clip:

Nathan Garrett: The Muslim Brotherhood is an international movement the goal of which is to create an Islamic state universally all over the world.

Mamoun Fandy: In my mind the Muslim Brotherhood is the mother of all Islamic organization of the 20th century including Al Qaeda.

Abdel Malik Ali: Democracy does not equal freedom. No, we don’t want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy.

Abdur-Rahman Muhammad: They believe that Western civilization is corrupt, is evil, is decadent and they want to dismantle it.

Kelly: Joining me now is the film’s producer, Steve Emerson. He’s also the founder of the Investigative Project on Terrorism. Steve, welcome back to the program.

Emerson: Hi Megyn.

Kelly: So what is this about? Is it about the Muslim Brotherhood in America or around the world?

Emerson: Well it’s primarily about the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamic offshoots in the United States that hide under the moniker of being ‘civil rights groups’ or innocent religious groups, but in fact have an ulterior agenda and are members of the larger Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure. In fact all we did was to video secretly behind closed doors radical rallies of Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the United States and capture their statements in which they talk about supporting jihad, supporting taking over the United States, supporting terrorism, calling the United States an anti-Muslim power, and claiming that all arrests since 9/11 were fabricated. And then publicly before the news cameras, before the New York Times or on television they claim that they’re against terrorism, they claim they’re for peace and for love and that they’re for moderation. But in fact it’s a grand deception. And the reason I call the movie The Grand Deception is that it comes from actually an FBI wire tap of radical Islamic members of Hamas secretly meeting in Philadelphia in 1993 which the FBI wire tapped in which they openly talk about the use of deception to fool the American public into making the public believe that they’re actually moderate when they really are supporters of Hamas, a notorious terrorist group.

Kelly: There is a sound bite in the film from the director of the Islamic Society of North America that speaks to the points you just raised. I want to play that for the viewrs now. This is sound bite number three.

Clip:

Sayyid Syeed: Our job is to change the Constitution of America.

Doug Farah: There is a systematic plan to establish an Islamist beach head in the United States with the eventual goal of watching the United States crumble from within and establishing the Islamic rule in this country.

Kelly: Is this present day, Steve?

Emerson: Absolutely. Look, they know they have to clean up their act and they did since 9/11, since the language they were using before 9/11 was too incendiary and they didn’t think anybody was watching. Now they know people are watching. But we still go behind closed doors. My organization, the Investigative Project on Terrorism, sends in dozens of informants every month to record secretly what goes on behind closed doors, and the proof is in the pudding. The man who just said we have to change the Constitution is speaking at a rally actually where the head of the American Muslim Council, a man named Mr. Alamoudi, who for 13 years was invited to the White House, the CIA, the FBI, he testified at Congress, and yet in 2003 he was arrested for a conspiracy involving Al Qaeda to murder the head of Saudi Arabia. And in the indictment, it showed that for the previous eight years while he had access to the White House, while he had access to the FBI, while he was sent abroad by the State Department, he was secretly a member of and a courier for Hamas and Al Qaeda. This is the deception.

Kelly: I want to talk to you about one of the more shocking clips in the documentary of this man who was giving the invocation before the US Congress and then shortly thereafter talks about the US being a garbage can. We’re gonna play that, discuss it next.

Clip:

Siraj Wahhaj: In the name of God, most gracious, most merciful, guide the leaders of this nation who have been given a great responsibility in worldly affairs, guide them and grant them righteousness and wisdom.

Siraj Wahhaj: You want to defend this country. You know what this country is? It’s a garbage can. Filthy, filthy and sick.

Kelly: Steve Emerson back with me now, the producer of a new film that’s coming out called The Grand Deception. Who was that guy?

Emerson: Siraj Wahhaj is a major imam from Brooklyn who is actually, was the first Muslim to open the invocation in Congress in 1991, but in fact is a very, very radical militant Muslim cleric who has called for jihad, he has supported terrorism. In fact he was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing case. And believe it or not, despite all that has come out including his unindicted status, to this very day he is still being invited to and paid for by US government agencies to speak at counterterrorism conferences. This is just one example in the film. There are dozens of other examples where radical Islamic groups, and when I say radical Islamic groups or Muslim Brotherhood groups, it’s not me defining them. We’re using the words that they themselves use –

Kelly: Excuse me for interrupting because we’re up against a hard break. But I want to just ask, is there a difference because we are told that the Muslim Brotherhood, some factions of it, are much more moderate. This I give you from the New York Times – it is at its core a middle class missionary institution led not by religious scholars but by doctors, lawyers and professionals. We were told over in Egypt that that’s what the Muslim Brotherhood looked like, not so much these radicals.

Emerson: In fact they are doctors and lawyers and engineers. They are the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is made up mostly of its leaders – Dr. Ayman al Zawahiri, the number two of al Qaeda after the deceased Osama bin Laden, was a pediatrician, a surgeon. So in fact the Muslim Brotherhood is a totalitarian regime. There’s no doubt about it. It’s what they say themselves, what they say on their web sites, what they say in speeches that we have on the film. But then before the New York Times which pretends that they are simply political and moderate, they present themselves with a façade of being peaceful. Nothing could be further from the truth and that’s the basic essence of the film is to show the duplicity of how these groups pretend to be moderate but behind closed doors are as radical as the Ku Klux Klan.

Kelly: Steve, thanks for being here.

FBI: Number of Michigan IP addresses on jihadi websites is “staggering” (Not surprising to those of us who keep tabs on what is happening in Dearbornistan!)

without comments

FBI: Number of Michigan IP addresses on jihadi websites is “staggering”

Posted on April 26, 2012 by creeping

via Counter-terrorism official: No Hizballah training camps in metro Detroit | Detroit Free Press | freep.com.

Authorities are concerned how Hizballah might react in case Israel or other countries get into a conflict with Iran, which sponsors the terrorist group, said FBI Assistant Special Agent Todd Mayberry, who oversees counter-terrorism in Michigan.

One challenge is being able to keep track of so many potentially radical websites and differentiating what might be a legitimate threat from harmless talk. Estimating there are thousands websites that could have extremist activity, he said:

“If I gave you the number of Michigan IP addresses that are on some of these sites, it’s staggering,” Mayberry said.

Asked by a member of the Jewish Community Council of Metro Detroit about possible Hizballah support in Muslim-American communities, Mayberry said: “There are (some) people who see Hizballah as freedom fighters and as charitable.”

But at the FBI and other federal agencies, he said: “Our position remains the same… they’re terrorists.”

“If you give them (Hizballah) money, and I can show that you’re giving them money, you’re going to jail,” Mayberry said.

He added: “If you preach in your mosque or in…your home, where you espouse Hizballah rhetoric and you say how great they are and everything, you’re going to get a case opened…They are terrorists.”

“Everybody has their opinion…It’s a free country up and to a point. But they are a terrorist group…and until that changes,” the FBI will go after “anyone who supports them whether financially or with material support.”

Some have alleged there are Hizballah training camps in metro Detroit, but Mayberry said such claims are not true.

“The threats are more vague,” he said.

In his talk, Mayberry said that Hizballah is as much a threat as Al-Qaeda, if not more, in some ways.

“Hizballah is absolutely no joke,” Mayberry said. “Al-Qaeda is certainly a threat, but Hizballah” has been operating for decades against Israel and others.

“People underestimate Hizballah… Hizballah is a huge threat” that operates at a “much higher level than we’re dealing with on the Al-Qaeda side.”

Mayberry also talked about the FBI’s attempts to work with local imams on the issue of young Muslims becoming radicalized through the Internet.

He said that sometimes, potential terrorists may try to contact a “legitimate mosque” in sort of a “last-ditch effort” to find out if his actions are OK. The potential terrorist may be wondering, Mayberry said, “Is this really what the Quran says?”

“One of the things we’re really working with the imams on is” trying to convince them to take seriously radicals who contact them.

“Behind every Islamic terrorist is an imam.(quiz: who said that?)

“Don’t take that lightly,” he said.

Mayberry said “the imams have been very responsive.”

Mayberry was also asked about a controversial memo from 1991 that was cited by authorities in the case of a Muslim charity in Texas, Holy Land Foundation. The memo indicated that some Muslim-American groups may have been involved in extremist activity. Mayberry said in response to the question: “You see a lot of the groups trying to distance themselves from their past.”

Wow. Look how slick the author of this piece – stealth Islamist Niraj Warikoo – put that, “a controversial memo form 1991.” That is a Muslim Brotherhood memorandum that lists frequent Warikoo contact CAIR as like-minded friends of the Muslim Brotherhood. Here is what Warikoo doesn’t tell you or link to, An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America:

The Ikhwan 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 God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands…

Great segue as he again conceals facts, this time that Hamas-linked CAIR is waging legal jihad on the FBI:

Mayberry was also asked about the lawsuit filed earlier this month by Muslim-Americans who say they’re been profiled by federal agents at border crossings. According to the lawsuit, some agents asked the Muslims about their religious beliefs.

But Mayberry said such questions can be legitimate at times.

“I understand there are members of the Muslim community who think we should not ask these types of questions. Well, I don’t necessarily agree with that…What really are the offensive questions here?”

Mayberry said: “Those lawsuits do not affect the way we do business at all,” adding that, “A lot of it (the lawsuit) is grandstanding as far as I’m concerned.”

Interesting.

Why Muslim Student Group Concerned the NYPD

without comments

Why Muslim Student Group Concerned the NYPD

Posted on March 1, 2012 by creeping

Shouldn’t that be present tense – concerns? via The Investigative Project on Terrorism:

The Muslim community expressed its outrage this week over a New York Police Department surveillance report from 2006 that the Associated Press reported on Monday. The report disclosed that the NYPD monitored Muslim Students Association (MSA) chapters in the Northeast. The outrage, centered on the perceived violation of privacy, is based on an incorrect presumption that law enforcement had no cause for concern with the MSA.

The organization’s history with radical dogma, convicted terrorists and radicalized alumni tell a different story.

NYPD officials visited websites and forums of different MSAs and noted the posted information, all of which was in the public domain. No one hacked into any email accounts or sites as part of the surveillance. A separate story reports that an undercover officer attended a rafting trip with more than a dozen MSA members.

But NYPD officials say critics are off base when they claim the department did something wrong.

“There is no constitutional prohibition against a police department collecting information,” city senior counsel Peter Farrell told reporters Thursday.

“What’s unconstitutional is if they then use that information to chill someone’s First Amendment rights or to impose harm on them.”

The AP report chronicles different events that some MSAs held and speakers that chapters hosted on campus and provides some lists of event attendees. The surveillance was intended to track any potential radical speakers or behaviors of the different chapters or individual members.

The report lists six different incidents of monitoring in 2006 at the University of Buffalo, New York University, and Rutgers University. It also lists 12 other MSAs that were tracked, but did not provide “significant information posted to their web sites, forums, blogs and groups.”

“Some of the most dangerous Western Al Qaeda-linked/inspired terrorists since 9/11 were radicalized and/or recruited at universities in MSAs,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said as an explanation for the surveillance. “We were focused on radicalization and/or recruitment, specifically by groups like Al Muhajiroun, Islamic Thinkers Society, Revolution Muslim and others.”

Criticism of the NYPD surveillance has been swift.

“We believe that the NYPD clearly overstepped its boundaries when it began spying on average American Muslim college students who were simply taking whitewater rafting trips or innocently participating in school activities at their college or university campus,” said MSA National President Zahir Latheef.

“University officials may be the last line of defense for Muslim students whose rights were apparently violated by the clearly unconstitutional — and possibly illegal — tactics used by the NYPD,” Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) spokesperson Ibrahim Hooper said. “The NYPD continues to act as if it is somehow above the law that governs all other individuals and institutions.”

Cyrus McGoldrick of CAIR- NY said, “It’s very clear that this is not about police work this is about monitoring people based on ideology.”

“They’re just going out and casting a wide net around a whole community, so they’re criminalizing in a way a whole community based on their religion,” saidCAIR-Connecticut Director Mongi Dhaouadi.

The Rutgers MSA called on the community to “openly condemn the clear violations of the NYPD, who conducted illegitimate profiling outside of their jurisdiction and breached the constitutional rights of an individual.”

Leaders Found Trouble

The NYPD has a duty to protect New York City from terrorist attacks. And MSA leaders and members have been convicted of terrorist activities and plots.

The list is extensive, but among the MSA alumni who went on to terrorist involvement are:

  • Anwar al-Awlaki, an influential American-born al-Qaida cleric who recruited a series of homegrown jihadists before being killed by a U.S. drone strike;
  • Aafia Siddiqui, convicted of attempted murder and assault on U.S. officers and employees in Afghanistan;
  • Zachary Chesser, convicted of attempting to provide material support to the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab and soliciting attacks on “South Park” producers for an episode in which the prophet Muhammad was shown in a bear suit;
  • Jesse Morton, convicted with Chesser of threatening the South Park producers with murder;
  • Adam Gadahn, an al-Qaida spokesman who is on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for treason and material support to al-Qaida;
  • Waheed Zaman, who was convicted of plotting to blow up transatlantic flights;
  • Adis Medunjanin, who is awaiting trial for plotting to bomb New York subways;
  • Ramy Zamzam, who was convicted in Pakistan of conspiring to carry out terrorist attacks;
  • Omar Hammami, who was indicted on charges of providing material support to al-Shabbab and is designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for his terrorist connections;
  • Muhammad Junaid Babar, who pled guilty to his support to al-Qaida; and
  • Syed Hashmi, who pled guilty to providing material support to al-Qaida.

MSA was founded in the United States in 1963 by members of the Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood seeks a global Islamic state and has spawned leaders of a series of Sunni terrorist groups, including al-Qaida, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

The Muslim Brotherhood motto established by founder Hassan al-Banna is, “God is our objective, the Quran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”

MSA members remain faithful to Brotherhood ideology. At the closing session of the MSA West conference in January 2011 at UCLA, attendees recited a pledge, “Allah is my lord, Islam is my life, the Quran is my guide, the Sunna is my practice, Jihad is my spirit, righteousness is my character, paradise is my goal. I enjoin what is right, I forbid what is wrong, I will fight against oppression, and I will die to establish Islam.”

More MSA Radicalism

Last May, the MSA chapter at the University of California, Irvine (known there as the Muslim Student Union or MSU), hosted an event with Amir Mertaban who is a former president of MSA West. During a 2007 conference, Mertaban urged students not to “ever compromise on your Muslim brothers and sisters in which you have no evidence. Osama bin Laden- I don’t know this guy. I don’t know what he did. I don’t know what he said. I don’t know what happened. But we defend Muslim brothers and we defend our Muslim sisters to the end. Is that clear?”

That didn’t mean people should support terror, he said, but they should never compromise on their faith “Because Islam is a perfect religion.”

Invited back in 2011, Mertaban admitted to having supported the Taliban in the 1980s, and refused to condemn the terrorist organization Hamas, claiming that it has done a lot of good in terms of social and political programming. In a subsequent interview with the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Mertaban emphasized that he does not know if Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11, refused to recognize Israel as a sovereign nation and said he supports Hamas “freedom fighting missions.”

MSA’s history and various connections are significant in evaluating the NYPD’s surveillance. Mayor Michael Bloomberg defended the action as an important countermeasure to terrorist activity. “Of course, we’re going to look at anything that’s publicly available, in the public domain. We have an obligation to do so,” he said.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne added that “[s]tudents who advertised events or sent emails about regular events should not be worried about a terrorism file being kept on them. NYPD only investigated persons who we had reasonable suspicion to believe might be involved in unlawful activities.”

One student who was on the rafting trip understood this. The AP quoted Ali Ahmed saying the NYPD was doing its job. “There’s lots of Muslims doing some bad things and it gives a bad name to all of us,” he said, “so they have to take their due diligence.”

If Ahmed’s views represented the MSA, rather than the radical ideas and actions of past leaders, NYPD would lose interest much faster.

Wake Forest University’s Radical Imam

Wake Forest University’s Radical Imam

Posted on January 17, 2012 by creeping

Radical is a subjective term, he’s no more radical than Mohammed right? Semantics aside, couple this with terror-linked Muslims pushing sharia in elementary schoolsand pro-sharia Muslims rewriting textbooks and you can see how quickly a nation can be destroyed from within.


via Wake Forest University’s Radical Imam by Clare M. Lopez

When Wake Forest University hired Khalid Griggs in February 2010 to be its first Muslim Assistant Chaplain, President Nathan O. Hatch hailed the “broader dialogue among people of different faith traditions” and the “greater awareness of differing beliefs” that he apparently supposed would flow naturally from the appointment.

In the case of Khalid Griggs, Hatch’s failure has been and continues to be egregious. Even a cursory Google search readily turns up the information that Griggs is closely affiliated with the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). Had Hatch done even the minimal homework expected of a college sophomore, he would know that ICNA was included on a Muslim Brotherhood document submitted (unopposed) into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial titled, “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” which identified ICNA as an entity or affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. Further, ICNA was named by the Department of Justice (DoJ), which prosecuted the case, an unindicted co-conspirator.

To make things even worse, it turns out that Wake Forest’s new imam isn’t just “affiliated” with ICNA: he’s the Chairman for the ICNA Council for Social Justice. This means he’s a senior ranking official of an organization the Justice Department named over three years ago as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror case.

There’s more. Khalid Griggs is the Imam and a founding member of the Community Mosque in Winston-Salem, NC. Together with other founding members, including Ibrahim Hanif, Jamal Abdullah, and Salih Abdul Latif, Griggs is a member of The Islamic Party of North America. Its signature publication, “Taking Islam to the Street: The Da’wah of the Islamic Party of North America,” candidly describes its ideology as “a revolutionary Islam” grounded in the teachings of Maulana Abu’l a’la Maududi, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Muammar Qaddaffi, and Sayyed Qutb.

Maududi was the hugely influential Pakistani Salafist who founded Jama’at-i-Islami(Society of Islam) and effectively bridged the thinking of Hasan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Sayyed Qutb, perhaps the Muslim Brotherhood’s foremost theoretician.

The Ayatollah Khomeini’s revolution toppled the Shah of Iran and instituted a savage reign of jihadist terror whose reverberations continue to destabilize the Middle East and beyond.

Muammar Qaddaffi was the brutal, terror-sponsoring Libyan dictator overthrown and killed in early 2011.

The Community Mosque of Winston-Salem also features a direct link from its site to the Muslim Brotherhood’s IslamOnline.net website where Yousuf al-Qaradawi, theMuslim Brotherhood’s modern-day senior “spiritual leader,” dispenses fatwas and jihad advice. These are the ideologues to whom Khalid Griggs and his Winston-Salem mosque colleagues look for inspiration. Is this the type of thinking that Nathan Hatch finds acceptable for Griggs to share with Winston-Salem students?

It gets worse. Griggs is also a member of the Shura Council for the Muslim Alliance of North America (MANA), an organization co-founded and led by Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. MANA’s General Secretary, Ihsan Bagby, is also affiliated with self-identified Muslim Brotherhood front groups that the DoJ listed as unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR—also known as HAMAS in the U.S.), the Fiqh Council of North America, and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). MANA’s website includes an essay by Imam Mohamed Balanonie entitled “The Role of the Masjid,” which explains that the Masjid(mosque) is the headquarters of the “Islamic State,” a “springboard” for the “implementation of Islam,” and “the starting point to the expansion of Islam and the Islamic conquests.” Ensuring there is no mistake about the offensive role of the mosque in the execution of jihad, Balanonie quotes Ibn Taimiyah, who wrote that the mosque is a place where “matters of politics were dealt with, troops and platoons were deployed” and “the war booties are divided.”

To sum this up, Wake Forest University’s Assistant Imam, Khalid Griggs, is also the Imam at a Winston-Salem mosque with an aggressively jihadist mission statement. He is a board member of ICNA, a Muslim Brotherhood front organization that the DoJ listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror funding case. He is a Shura Council member of MANA, which views mosques as Muslim community centers where Islamic conquests are planned and launched. All of this information is freely available on the Internet, as the numerous hyperlinks in this essay attest. The Team B II report, “Shariah: The Threat to America,” was published more than a year ago and the Holy Land Foundation trial documents have been posted to the Internet for three years now.

What part of a university president’s job is more important than conducting this kind of due diligence on the personnel who will be in direct, perhaps even daily, contact with the young students that parents send to Winston-Salem in the expectation that they will be guided in an academic environment that is professional, safe, and terror-free? There is none.

President Nathan Hatch owes the alumnae, parents, students, and the Winston-Salem University Foundation Board of Directors a thorough explanation of exactly how Khalid Griggs’ resume ever made it past the first screening, and how such an individual could have been permitted contact and interaction with Winston-Salem University students for almost two years.

Man charged with threatening ‘jihad’ at Detroit federal building

Posted on November 5, 2011 by creeping

And skeptics claim that Islam has not contributed to this once-great country. viaWayne County | Man charged with threatening ‘jihad’ at Detroit federal building | The Detroit News.

Detroit— A man was charged with threatening a federal agent Friday after he vowed to wage “jihad” during an incident inside the McNamara Federal Building.

Detroiter Otis Lenez Moore, 45, was arrested after he entered the federal building and security guards found he was carrying a large pair of scissors, according to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

Security guards gave him a chance to discard the scissors and re-enter the building. He refused, according to an affidavit signed by Special Agent Matthew Stone of the Homeland Security Department.

Moore walked past security and tried to enter the building, the special agent wrote. Security guards blocked his path and told him to leave.

“Moore became irate and began verbally berating the security team with profanities and derogatory language,” Stone wrote in the affidavit.

Guards escorted him outside while he continued to berate the officers, according to the affidavit.

“Once outside the building, but while still on federal property, Moore stated he was going to shoot each of the officers in the head,” Stone wrote. “The security officers immediately took custody of Moore and detained him using restraints. Once restrained, Moore continued to threaten to kill the officers and bring ‘jihad’ onto the officers.”

A Wakeup Call for America

without comments

According to a recently-published study, many mosques in the United States do not merely serve as places of worship, but as tools for the promotion of Sharia law and radical Islamic ideology.

The study identified dozens of mosques as breeding grounds for jihad, with over 80% of those examined promoting violence.

When Rep. Peter King (R-NY, 3rd district) held hearings in December on the radicalization of American Muslims, he was met with great criticism and controversy.  Yet the findings of this survey make the threats of radicalization much harder to ignore. Perhaps today, when Rep. King holds the second forum on the issue, this time focusing on the threat of Muslim-American radicalization in U.S. prisons, people will pay closer attention.

Islamic Threat as Bright as the Sun
Townhall.com

“There goes that post-9/11 myth — the one that tells us that American Islam is a happily assimilating creed, wholly different from the aggressive Islam transforming Europe.”

My best guess is the sun is hot. I feel its heat. I see by its light. I understand its role in the growth of crops and other living things. If I were to come across scholarly data attesting to its high temperatures, I would probably look at the fiery pictures (if there were any) and turn to something else.

On one level, I approach a new study on violence and Islam in the Middle East Quarterly in much the same way. That is, I’ve lived through 9/11 and the 17,298 Islamic terror attacks since (as tabulated by the website thereligionofpeace.com). I’ve seen pictures of Muslims rampaging around the world over a cartoon. I also understand Islam’s animating role in the terror and subversion designed to extend Islamic law (Shariah) to a point where an Islamic government, or caliphate, rules the world. more


The Coordinates of Radicalism
National Review Online

z

"The more sharia-compliant the mosque and its imam, the more virulently anti-Western is apt to be the Islam being preached there."

What is it that radicalizes Muslims, including American Muslims? Is it American foreign policy? Israeli “occupation” of the ancient Jewish territories of Judea and Samaria? Cartoons depicting the warrior-prophet as a warrior? Korans torched by obscure Florida pastors? The life of Osama bin Laden, or, perhaps, his death? Any of a thousand claimed slights, real or imagined, that purportedly provoke young Muslims to “conflagrate” — if we may borrow from the forgiving rationalizations of Faisal Rauf, would-be imam of the would-be Ground Zero mosque?

Here is the unsettling but sedulously avoided truth: What radicalizes Muslims is Islam. more

CAIR director tells Muslims jihad is a “noble cause”

CAIR director tells Muslims jihad is a “noble cause”

Posted on June 14, 2011 by creeping

via CAIRing for Jihad :: Hudson New York.

Hussam Ayloush, the Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Los Angeles – one of CAIR’s largest and most important local chapters — claims the term “jihad” means something positive and noble. However, the organization he represents, CAIR, and the company he keeps belie the notion that Ayloush is being less than forthright in his interpretation.

On April 8, 2011, Ayloush found himself giving a khutbah [sermon] entitled, “Understanding and Defending ‘The Shariah,’” at the Islamic Institute of Orange County (IIOC). Shariah is the set of religion-based legal rulings originally set out in the Koran and the life of Muhammed {Hadith] and interpreted and enforced by Islamic courts. Shariah – meaning “The Path,” or “The “Way” — deals with everything from crime and politics to economics and sexuality. Shariah law includes such acts as the cutting off of limbs, crucifixion, mutilation, the stoning of individuals, and the death sentence for (even alleged) adultery, death for criticizing the Prophet Muhammed, and death for leaving the religion. It also values a woman as worth half a man in court, and advocates wife-beating.

In the speech, Ayloush stated, “The word jihad now is so demonized that even Muslims are afraid to link to such a noble cause. Striving for justice, striving for the goodness of mankind, striving for good – that’s what jihad is.” Jihad means to struggle, within oneself or against others. Often the term refers to “holy war” against non-believers or non-Muslims.

According to the U.S. Justice Department, however, CAIR has had significant associations with the terrorist group Hamas. Not only was CAIR founded under the leadership of Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook, it was also found guilty by US Courts of funding Hamas through its U.S. arm, The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development [HLF]. In November 2008, five of HLF’s top officials – and HLF, itself – were found guilty of funneling millions of dollars to Hamas.

Is he telling Muslims not to be afraid to link to jihad? Read it all.

Remember, Jihad is The Highest Peak of Islam:

Jihad an-Nafs

Some have attempted to justify their stance on this concept with what is apparently intended as a daleel (Islamic evidence), and so have used a narration to justify this concept of Jihad an-Nafs or dealing with all the political and military problems we face by becoming introspective or looking inwardly as opposed to looking at the Ahkam Shari’ah and seeing what Allah (Subhanahu Wa ta’ala) has demanded from us.

So they use what they claim is a hadith, or saying of Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), “We have returned from the lesser Jihad to the greater Jihad, that is the struggle against the evil of oneself.” This is in fact a fabrication and is known as Mawdu’ (spurious). Hafidh al Iraqi and Ibn Hajar al Asqalani, who were hadith masters and muhaditheen, who memorised one hundred thousand hadith by Isnad and were qualified to scrutinise hadith and their authenticity, stated that this was not a saying of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) but was in fact a statement that was made by someone in the later generation named Ibrahim ibn Abi Yabla. Hence, this is not considered an evidence in the Islamic Shari’ah.

To elaborate further, it is in contradiction with the subject matter of Jihad that has been elaborated in over a hundred ayat of the Qur’an that have come with the meaning of Jihad being Qitaal, which means to slay or to kill or to fight. This was how the Prophet (Sallallahu Sallallahu “>Alaihi Wasallam) and the Sahabah (ra) understood it. To give an example from the Seerah that was narrated by Ibn Majah with a source in Bukhari, woman came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and asked “O Messenger of Allah! Is Jihad obliged upon the women?” To which he responded, “Yes, a Jihad without Qitaal (fighting), it is the Hajj and the Umrah!”

This clearly demonstrates that Jihad is Qitaal i.e. Jihad is undertaking the physical fighting and this is how it was understood by the woman and the Prophet (Sallallahu Sallallahu “>Alaihi Wasallam), as explained in the Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) answer i.e. Jihad in Islam means fighting. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) did not respond by saying that there was the greater Jihad for everyone i.e. Jihad against oneself! Rather he informed her that Allah had prescribed the Hajj and the Umrah for her and that she would get the reward of the Mujahid for undertaking this action, as explained by Imam Sanani in his explanation in the book Sub us Salam.

Jihadi media organizations are forming Facebook pages to bypass restrictions on terrorist organizations, and to pass on videos, pictures, and documents to followers. While Facebook bans inciting violence or hateful content, jihadi media groups slide underneath the restrictions because they are poorly known.

"Watch here live the battle yesterday at Mogadisho as the tanks of the kufaar [disbelievers] burn," says a post on the new Facebook page of Al-Kataib Media Foundation, a division of the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab. The post also features a video of an al-Shabaab spokesman who "talks to the reporters at the front line of the jihad," provides a link to download the clip, and encourages them to "share it with your brothers and sisters."

Other posts on the Al-Kataib page glorify al-Shabaab’s campaign of suicide bombing, while ‘notes‘ provide detailed accounts of daily battles.

Alongside unofficial pages dedicated to terrorist organizations, al-Kataib’s page suggests that jihadi media can recruit and indoctrinate directly from the world’s largest social network. The media groups of al-Qaida and al-Shabaab have pages, while popular jihadi blog Ansar al-Mujahideen operates two closed discussion groups.

Facebook won accolades for its role in fueling peaceful, popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa known as the Arab Spring.

However, in the same way that social media has mobilized positive change in Arab nations, it has also given a boost to terrorist organizations. Hamas recently launched a new social media campaign, using Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube to lift its public profile.

The exploitation of Facebook by terrorists remains a serious concern of American intelligence. "Social media tools such as Twitter and Facebook can be used by terrorist groups to expand networks and exchange real-time information, enabling operatives to organize and act quickly," says a March 2011 Congressional Research Service report on terrorist use of the internet. "These tools can not only spread propaganda, but can also host embedded malicious software in links and applications that can corrupt an unsuspecting user’s electronic device."

"YouTube channels and Facebook pages of Taliban and Al Qaeda supporters may radicalize Western-based sympathizers, and also provide a means for communication between these ‘lone wolf’ actors and larger organized networks of terrorists. The decentralized nature of the Internet as a medium and the associated difficulty in responding to emerging threats can match the franchised nature of terrorist organizations and operations."

A Facebook page for As-Sahab media, al-Qaida’s propaganda arm that produces "documentary-quality films, iPod files and cellphone videos," underscores the threat. "Every three or four days, on average, a new video or audio from one of al-Qaeda’s commanders is released online by as-Sahab, the terrorist network’s in-house propaganda studio," the Washington Post reports. The Facebook page captures many of these videos by terrorist leaders Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zaraqawi, and American Adam Gadahn, and presents them with subtitles in foreign languages like Turkish.

Another page is dedicated to Masood Azhar, the leader of Pakistani terrorist organization Jaish-e-Muhammad. It features videos from Azhar’s organization and from another banned Pakistani group, Lashkar-e-Tayyiba.

Social networking sites have a profound influence on their users, as in all social contact. Theories such as the "Three Degrees of Influence Rule," state that everything we do or say ripples through our social network, having an impact on our friends, their friends, and their friends’ friends. Studies illustrate that people are likely to experience the emotions and embrace the ideas of those who surround them, including on social networking websites like Facebook.

Thus social networks have a profound effect on radicalization. "If these [emotions and social trends] can spread through social networks, why not the volatile mix that leads to terrorism — anger, fear, hatred, religious fervor," asks counterterrorism expert Maria Ressa, in the Jakarta Post. "Mapping the social networks of Al Qaeda and JI show it does."

Al-Qaida has "evolved into a social movement that continues to attract new groups and new recruits," Ressa says. "Studies of the social networks of Al Qaeda and its Southeast Asian arm, Jemaah Islamiyah, show they continue to spread violent jihadi ideology like a virus." The participation of jihadi media provides wannabe jihadis with support from actual terrorists, making them part of the jihadi social network.

This is particular true in the past few months, where high-level assassinations have decapitated some leaders of al-Qaida. Their leaders remain the idols of the movement, with their videos and publications forming the basis of Facebook pages. But activists on web forums and Facebook remain the lifeblood of the movements, as producers and consumers of the vast media network that fuels jihadist thought.

Minnesota: Muslim women urged donors to focus on jihad

Minnesota: Muslim women urged donors to focus on jihad

Hat tip to Money Jihad via MN Women Face Oct. 3 Trial on Terror Charge | WDAZ

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — While investigating whether two Rochester women were funneling money to a terror group in Somalia, FBI agents sifted through the trash of an apartment complex roughly 90 times, intercepted and recorded 30,000 phone calls and interviewed suspects more than once.

Details revealed in court Thursday hint at the scope and complexity of the investigation into Amina Farah Ali and Hawo Mohamed Hassan, two women who prosecutors say were part of a “deadly pipeline” routing money and fighters from the U.S. to al-Shabab.

Ali, 34, and Hassan, 60, will face trial Oct. 3 on multiple charges, including conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Prosecutors say they went door-to-door to collect funds and held teleconferences to solicit donations. In one of those calls, prosecutors say, Ali told others to “forget about the other charities” and focus on “the Jihad.”

The women have said they are innocent and were collecting money and clothing for refugees in Somalia. Their attorneys have filed numerous requests in the case: asking that the indictment be dismissed, that the women be tried separately and that some statements Ali made to authorities be left out of trial.

Chief U.S. District Judge Michael Davis said Thursday he would take these requests and others under advisement.

“It’s complex,” he said of the case.

For over two years, Minneapolis has been the center of a federal investigation into the travels of roughly 20 Somali men who left Minnesota to possibly fight with al-Shabab. A total of 19 people have been charged in Minnesota in connection with the investigations into the travelers and terror financing.

Other people in San Diego and St. Louis have also been charged with funneling money to al-Shabab. In the St. Louis case, prosecutors allege the money was sent through a Minneapolis wire-transfer business…

What makes this case  more complex and most interesting are statements from a top DOJ source interviewed by Patrick Poole exposing DOJ and White House “outreach” programs to Muslims and terror-linked groups like CAIR. From Poole’s PJM blockbuster, DOJ Source: Gov’t Muslim ‘Outreach’ Jeopardized Active Terror Investigations:

I asked for an example of how these outreach programs jeopardized investigations:

Well the best example was the investigation into the missing Somali kids in Minneapolis two years ago.

When Al-Shabaab started gaining support in the Somali community after the Ethiopian invasion in late 2006 and early 2007, all of the government agencies started doing outreach to the Somali imams. But when these kids went missing in Minneapolis, did we get a call from these imams we were reaching out to?

No, they were telling the families to shut up and not to talk to the FBI.

[Author’s note: Subsequent to my interview, Abdirizak Bihi, the uncle of one of the missing kids who was later killed fighting with Al-Shabaab in Somalia, testified before the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee hearing on radicalization in the Islamic community making these same claims: religious leaders and CAIR were intimidating the families of the missing Somali men to prevent them from talking to law enforcement.]

It wasn’t long into the investigation before we started hearing that the ones primarily responsible for recruiting and raising the funds for these kids to go fight with Al-Shabaab were the same imams we had been doing outreach to all along. But everyone was saying “we must do outreach,” like they had all been hypnotized, so the outreach continued.

Now at the same time, the FBI was working to get information from these imams about what might have happened with these kids when somebody somewhere decides to put them on the no-fly list. [Author’s note: It was widely reported that Sheik Abdirahman Ahmed of Masjid Abubakar As-Saddique -- the largest mosque in Minnesota -- and the mosque’s youth director Abdulahi Farah were placed on and later removed from the no-fly list.] So they get stopped trying to leave the country, which tips them off that they’re part of the investigation. And the imams quickly lawyer up. Its months before we actually get their attorneys to agree to let them to talk to us. And we got nothing from them when we did.

Once we started to get a handle on how big this really was, it ended up being becoming the largest CT [counterterrorism] investigation since 9/11. And a couple of months in we finally convene a grand jury to look into this thing. So do we call these imams in? Hell no.

Subpoenas go out to a bunch of mid- and low-level people, but not the big fish. And when the low-level people get their subpoenas, who do they call? The imams who are our prime suspects, oh, and who also are supposed to be our outreach partners. And like magic, the low-level folks all suddenly get CAIR attorneys representing them. The result is that the indictments that have been handed down are virtually all minor players. Instead of going after the guys running the operation, we indict a couple of guys and a Somali woman who raised a couple of thousand of dollars for Al-Shabaab.

Don’t get me wrong, I think they should all go to jail, but do we really believe we’re winning the war on terror when this Somali woman gets indicted and the imams who recruited these kids and sent them to fight and die are allowed to walk free?

I asked: the outreach to the imams finally stopped, didn’t it?

Are you kidding me? They’re still working with these guys!

[Authors note: In fact, one Somali press outlet reported that Homeland Security, the FBI, and several other federal, state, and local agencies held an unpublicized outreach session at the Abubakar As-Saddique mosque earlier this month. According to that report, Sheikh Ahmed and other mosque leaders did not attend for fear of backlash from the Somali community.]

But here’s how we get twisted around our own outreach programs. About two months after all these kids disappear, the Al-Shabaab imams from all over the country get together at a meeting in Ohio, including the Minneapolis imams we’re looking at. Do we wiretap the meeting? Of course not.

Instead, a representative for the imams convinces some dimwit attorney from Homeland Security Civil Rights division to come talk at their meeting about outreach. And so they let this guy talk for about ten minutes, then he’s quickly ushered out of the building so they can get down to business. This gives them perfect cover. “Well we can’t be having a terrorist meeting because we had Homeland Security here!”

And can you guess what happened to the imam’s lackey who arranged for Homeland Security to be at that meeting? He’s now one of [Homeland Security Secretary] Napolitano’s senior advisors and running all of their Somali outreach! They gave this guy a security clearance! I’m not f***ing kidding you!

Knowing all that, and that’s just one example, it begs the question, just how complex will this case be for Chief U.S. District Judge Michael Davis? Has Holder and his minions spoken to Davis?
