Our Lady of Victory

UTT, by John Guandolo, Oct. 7, 2015:

Today, October 7th, the free West celebrates and remembers that on this date in 1571 the last great naval battle of oared ships took place in the Gulf of Corinth (Greece).  Known as the Battle of Lepanto – where the Muslims had their fleet – this was the first defeat of the Muslim Turks at sea by Christian forces.


In the 16th century, the Islamic Caliphate – the Ottoman Empire – was continuing it’s incursion and expansion into Western lands, including the Mediterranean and more of Europe.

Caliph Suleiman ruled the Caliphate from 1520 to 1566, and was followed by Selim II who ruled until 1574.

In May 1565, the Ottomans laid siege to the island of Malta (due south of Sicily) with 250 ships carrying 40,000 Muslim fighters.  Malta was defended by 700 Knights of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem (Knights Hospitallers) and approximately 8,000 Maltese troops.  For four months the Christian forces defended Malta and inflicted large casualties on the Ottoman Turks, who finally fled when reinforcements arrived.  Thereafter, the Knights carried the title the “Knights of Malta.”

The Battle of Cyprus

In the spring of 1570, the 4th Ottoman-Venetian war began when the Muslim Turks attacked Cyprus with 70,000 men.  The Venetians appealed to Pope Pius V to come to their defense.

The Christian defenders of Cyprus were outnumbered by a margin of almost 7 to 1.  The city of Nicosia held for nearly two months but, having been reduced to 500 soldiers, surrendered.

Venetian soldiers in Famagusta fought on for nearly a year, but on August 5, 1571, Cyprus fell.

The Venetians agreed to surrender terms offered by the Turkish commander, Lala Mustafa, who agreed to give them safe passage to Crete on Turkish ships.  Instead, the Venetians were stripped of their clothes, chained to the oars of the Turkish ships, and forced to row.

The Muslims beheaded the Venetian commanders and hung their heads on the mast of their ships.

On August 17, 1571, The Venetian governor/commander, Marco Antonio Bragadin, was humiliated, tortured, and flayed alive.  Mustafa had Bragadin’s body stuffed with hay and hung on the mast of his ship.

On May 25, 1571, while these battles were raging in Cyprus, Pope Pius V formed the Holy League with forces from the Papal States, the Habsburg States in Italy and Spain, monarchies of Tuscany, Savoy and elsewhere, the Knights of Malta, and others, in order to defend Cyprus and push back the Islamic forces.

The Battle of Lepanto

In September 1571, the Holy League’s fleet assembled at Messina, Sicily with 206 galleys and 6 smaller ships, manned by 40,000 sailors carrying approximately 27,000 soldiers.  The Holy League sailed for Corfu on September 16th with John of Austria commanding (in the center), Agostino Barbarigo on the left, Italy’s Admiral Giovanni Andrea Doria on the right, and, from Spain, Álvaro de Bazán in reserve.

The Muslim fleet was commanded by Ali Pasha (center), Alexandria’s governor, Mohammed Saulak (right), and the Pasha of Algiers Uluch Ali on the left.  The Turkish fleet flew the green standard with the word “Allah” embroidered over 29,000 times on it.

The Holy League’s Battle Standard was given to them by Pope Pius V and carried the image of the crucified Jesus on the Cross on it.


On the eve of battle – October 6th – Priests on the Holy League’s vessels held Mass, heard confessions, and prayed with the men.  Knowing the Turks had never been defeated on the sea, the men of the Holy League prayed the Rosary and asked Mary, the Mother of God, to pray for them.

Across Europe, people had been praying for months, and the Pope called for all Christians to pray the Rosary for victory.

It is said that on the day of battle, John of Austria went from ship to ship with a crucifix encouraging the men to keep their faith strong in the face of this impending engagement.

The tactics of the day were to engage the enemy ship to ship, lash them together, and fight close hand to hand combat.

On October 7, 1571, the Battle of Lepanto began with the Holy League’s guns ripping down the masts of Turkish ships and doing great damage before the fleets came in close range.

John of Austria’s Real and Ali Pasha’s Sultana – the flagships for each force – collided together.  Fierce fighting ensued and finally subsided when Ali Pasha was shot dead and the Holy League standard was raised over theSultana. Even though the Muslim center was collapsing, the battle raged on.

In the end, the Christians were victorious.  The Holy league captured 117 galleys and thousands of men, liberated over 12,000 enslaved Christians, and sank or burned about four dozen enemy galleys.

Across Europe celebrations ensued as news of the victory spread throughout the land.  Great works of art were commissioned to memorialize the victory at Lepanto.


The Church declared October 7th the Feast Day of Our Lady of Victory, which today is also called the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, to honor what many believe were the prayers of Mary interceding on behalf of the Holy League and the forces of Liberty.

Miguel de Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote, was wounded in the battle.  He wrote the Battle of Lepanto was “the most noble and memorable event that past centuries have seen.”

While Venice later surrendered to the Islamic fleet in 1573, the victory at the Battle of Lepanto ensured the Islamic domination of the Mediterranean was over for the time being.  It also gave Europe a much needed boost in morale after centuries of war with the invading Muslims.


Since Mohammed first launched jihad in the early 7th century, the free Christian West has been at war with the Islamic forces who continue to kill and impose slavery on Muslims and non-Muslims alike.  Were it not for key victories against the Islamic armies over the last 1400 years, the lamp of freedom would be dim today.

The first war America fought after our Revolution was against the Muslim (Barbary states), when Thomas Jefferson ordered the Marines to deal with the Islamic forces which were capturing American vessels on the seas and taking Americans prisoner.  America defeated the Muslims in these now-famous engagements But we have forgotten our history.

Today, the world watches the continued incursion by Muslim forces into sovereign nations where tens of thousands are murdered in gruesome deaths.  Women are systematically raped and disfigured.  Homosexuals are thrown from buildings to their deaths.  Nations are being overthrown.  From Central and East Africa to the Philippines to Thailand, across Europe and throughout the Middle East and Asia.  The armies of Mohammed are again marching to conquer the globe.

Their stated goal:  to re-establish the Caliphate and impose Sharia (Islamic Law) on the world.

In Europe and America, we are told – especially by political and religious leaders – that we should be more tolerant of the Muslim faith which, they say, is a “religion of peace.”

Today, October 7th, we remember and honor all of those who fought for liberty against the forces of evil and slavery.  We remember the prayers that delivered the Holy League a great victory over the Ottoman Turks.

And we pray that Liberty will go back on the offensive where it belongs.

More Americans Killed on College Campus by Terrorist/Jihadi Admirer

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, Oct. 1, 2015:

Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, killed ten (10) people and wounded at least seven (7) on the campus of Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, before being shot dead by police.

Harper-Mercer’s social media sites reveal he has an affinity for terrorists and jihadis.  On Chris Harper-Mercer’s MySpace page the photos include IRA terrorists which his comments show he supports and admires.  There is also a photo of Harper-Mercer holding a rifle among the pictures of the IRA terrorists.

Screen-Shot-2015-10-01-at-10Under “Connections” Harper-Mercer lists two people, one of whom is Mahmoud Ali Ehsani.

Ali Ehsani

Ehsani’s page includes photos of mosques in Brunei and Mecca, as well as jihadis from all over the planet.

Ali Ehsani 2

AlimEhsani 3Ali Eshani 4Ali Ehsani 5Additionally, Ehsani has a photo with his comments that include “kill the jews. jews are the only infidels.”


It was reported that Harper-Mercer demanded to know his victims’ religion before killing them, specifically asking if they were Christians.

While there are reports Chris Harper-Mercer’s online dating profile identifies him as a “Republican” of mixed race, the evidence available as of today reveals he is sympathetic to terrorists and jihadis.

President Obama’s response was to again call for a greater reduction of our liberties and make it harder for Americans to obtain firearms.

The President’s coddling of terrorists and the single-most dangerous terrorist nation on the planet (Iran), his assault on Christians in this country, his support for anti-Constitution progressives and Marxists, his back-room dealings with the Russians, Cubans and others, his example of tossing the rule of law out the window, his assault on law enforcement officers, and his continuous abuse of power are more likely the fertilizers which bred this attack.

Across America, a state of lawlessness is exploding around us, nurtured and bred in the White House and the Attorney General’s office.  And Americans remains frozen and unable to act.

American Airlines Recognizes 4 Employees for Leadership Including Hamas Leader Mohamed El Sharkawy of Arizona

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, Sep. 25, 2015:

American Airlines, one of the largest airlines on the planet, recently gave a leadership award to Hamas leader Mohamed El Sharkawy, who is in charge of American’s Line Maintenance Training at their Phoenix, Arizona hub.

Hamas Leader Mohamed El Sharkawy (far left) and 3 other AA employees receive award

Hamas Leader Mohamed El Sharkawy (far left) and 3 other AA employees receive award

The September edition of American Airlines’ magazine – American Way – revealed Mohamed El Sharkawy received the 2015 Earl G. Graves Award for Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion “for (his) work in making a lasting impression in the workplace.”

The award was given to Sharkawy at the end of June, but was published in American Airlines’ American Way in September.


Mohamed El Sharkawy was previously the Director for Hamas in Arizona, doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations or CAIR.  Evidence, some of which is listed below, reveals CAIR was created by the US Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas) in 1994 to be a node for Hamas in America to provide the Hamas cause with “media, money, men, and all that” meaning propaganda, fundraising, recruits, and all else that comes with waging jihad.

Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

Is this the kind of individual who should have access to sensitive areas of Phoenix Airport or American Airlines?

American Airlines Public Affairs Office refused to comment on El Sharkawy’s employment, but encouraged UTT (Understanding the Threat) to contact the FBI if threat information exists.

El Sharkawy is also serves as the Chairman of the Arizona Muslim Police Advisory Board.

A massive amount of evidence collected over the past 20 years exists revealing CAIR is a Hamas organization.  Here are a few highlights:

  1. CAIR was incorporated in 1994 by Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Rafeeq Jaber, all of whom were leaders of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), a now-defunct Hamas organization in the U.S. Musa Abu Marzook, the Deputy Political Chief for Hamas and the Leader of Hamas in the United States (Chairman of the U.S. Palestine Committee), was a member of the IAP Board of Directors.
  2. In the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history – US v Holy Land Foundation (HLF), Dallas 2008 – U.S. government prosecutors and the Department of Justiceidentify CAIR as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas in the United States, and an unindicted co-conspirator in the case.
  3. CAIR was founded, in part, with money from the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a convicted Hamas organization.
  4. CAIR Founder Omar Ahmad aka Omar Yehya was on the Executive Committee for the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas), and is the Chairman Emeritus of CAIR.
  5. In 1993, the leaders of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas) met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The meeting was covered by the FBI via physical surveillance, microphones in meeting rooms, wiretaps on phones, etc. TheFBI stated this was a “Meeting among senior leaders of Hamas, the HLFRD, and the IAP.” (Action Memo from FBI Counterterrorism Assistant Director Dale Watson). “All attendees of this meeting are Hamas members.” (FBI analysis of Philadelphia meeting entered into evidence at HLF trial). Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad – founders of CAIR – were present at this meeting.
  6. The Palestine Committee Meeting in 1994 lists CAIR as the 4th organization operating under it (Hamas). This document was entered into evidence at the US v HLF trial.
  7. In the December 2007 government filing in the US v Sabri Benkhala appeal, the government stated: “From its founding by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.”
  8. In a 2004 FBI raid at the Annandale, Virginia residence of Ismail Elbarasse, a senior Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood leader, the archives of the U.S. MB were discovered. One of the documents found listed the leaders of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas). On the list were the names of CAIR founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad (alias Omar Yeheya).
  9. In the government filing requesting CAIR’s motion to have its name removed from the Unindicted Co-Conspirator list in the HLF case, U.S. prosecutors stated, “The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised of three organizations: the OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR was later added to these organizations…the mandate of these organizations, per the International Muslim Brotherhood, was to support Hamas.”
  10. The Federal Judge in this case, Jorge Solis, stated: “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with the HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.”
  11. FBI Assistant Director Steve Pomeranz stated: “By masquerading as a mainstream public affairs organization, CAIR has taken the lead in trying to mislead the public about the terrorist underpinnings of militant Islamic movements, in particular, Hamas.”
  12. In a 2003 Senate Sub-Committee hearing on radical Islam, Senator Charles Schumer (NY) stated, “To make matters worse, the prominent members of the Council’s (CAIR’s) current leadership who you Mr. Chairman invited to the hearings today, they declined to testify, also have intimate connections with Hamas.”
  13. In a letter dated February 12, 2010 to U.S. Congresswoman Sue Myrick (NC) from Assistant U.S. Attorney General Ronald Weich, Mr. Weich wrote “Enclosed (is) evidence that was introduced in that trial (US v HLF) which demonstrated the relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders, and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and Hamas.”
  14. In June 2009, on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Frank Wolf (VA) gave a lengthy speech in which he laid out a great deal of the evidence against CAIR and its ties to Hamas. The transcript of this speech can be found at: http:// wolf.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/wolf-gives-major-floor-speech-on-fbis- cooperation-with-cair
  15. In a letter dated April 28, 2009 from the FBI’s Assistant Director, Office of Congressional Affairs, to U.S. Senator John Kyl (AZ), the FBI leader details why the FBI cut off all formal ties to CAIR and identifies it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial because of its relationship with Hamas.

This information constitutes a small amount of the massive evidence that CAIR operates as a Hamas entity in the United States.  Hamas is a designated terrorist organization.  Their leaders should be in jail, and should certainly not have access to our airlines, airports, or infrastructure.

UTT encourages citizens who fly on American Airlines to contact them and ask why they employ a terrorist.

The Convergence of Threats

obama flamesUnderstanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, Sep. 3, 2015:

Police officers are being targeted for assassination; there are an increasing number of jihadi attacks across the world; tens of thousands of Christians are being slaughtered by Muslims in Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere; a flood of refugees from hostile countries are being forced on local townships across America as a part of federal government plan funded by tax payers; our critical infrastructure is dangerously vulnerable; our military is being gutted, courageous leaders are being punished, and our nuclear forces are decaying; there is a disregard by our leadership on both sides of the political aisle for the rule of law and our Constitution; many Christian and Jewish leaders stand on the side of tyranny with socialists and jihadis in the name of “tolerance”; there exists a unified effort by the socialist Left in America and the Islamic jihadis to silence all forms of communication which brings the truth to light and call this evil out for what it really is; Russia stands ready to engage the U.S. militarily; and this administration openly supports the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world – Iran – in developing nuclear weapons which it says will be used to destroy Israel and the United States.

This is where we are today in America. Yet, Americans still feel compelled to ask if this is intentional or just the result of poor policies that have gone awry. You do not have to be a political scientist to understand America is and is headed exactly where the Jihadis and the Progressive Left Movement has worked for over 50 years to take this nation. This is the intentional outcome of a decades-old effort to bring the United States down.

Growing up, President Obama went to an Islamic school. His father and step-father were Muslim, and his greatest mentor, according to the President, was a card carrying member of Communist Party USA (Frank Marshall Davis). Mr. Obama studied and taught Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, which is Marxist revolutionary ideology. In that book, you will see all of the tactics detailed which we are now witnessing on the streets of America. Just like a playbook.

It should be noted Rules for Radicals is dedicated to Satan – by the way.

So where did the President learn to respect America’s founding principle that our rights come from God and that all of our laws and moral standards flow from that point? He never did.

Today the forces of the Marxists and socialists have a well-funded and well-organized movement to destroy the foundations of this Republic while the jihadis have an even more well-funded and well-organized effort to destroy us as well. The facts and evidence have been on the table for sometime with no thoughtful or factual debate coming from another point of view. Those defending the founding principles of this great Republic are told to shut up and stop being so “racists” or “hateful” or whatever other adjective they throw out. Just like the Nazis, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and so many other tyrants have done over the years.

The first step in maintaining a free society is for citizens with courage to stand in that freedom and refuse to slowly get washed out into the sea of slavery. We must count the cost and be ready to give everything to maintain the liberty our founders gave to us with the blessing of Almighty God.

UTT Trains Hundreds in Colorado Despite Efforts by Hamas

cair-hamas-logoBy John Guandolo, August 20, 2015:

Understanding the Threat (UTT) spent last week in Colorado speaking to large groups of citizens, elected officials, law enforcement, and others despite a strong push by Hamas (doing business as “CAIR” – the Council on American Islamic Relations).

Hamas (dba CAIR) sent emails to a large number of Police Chiefs and Sheriffs calling for them to avoid any of UTT’s training programs, and published an article calling UTT’s Founder John Guandolo an “Islamophobe” which is equivalent to a public condemnation for violating the Islamic Law of Slander (to say anything about Islam or Muslims they would dislike), which is a capital crime in Islam.

Calls and emails to the FBI by UTT concerning these threats continue to be ignored.

Despite Hamas’ best efforts, UTT was able to make significant headway in Colorado and share factual information about the threat from the Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadi network in America which consists of the most prominent Islamic organizations in the U.S. including: Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR); Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and all of its subsidiary Islamic Societies; Muslim Student Associations (MSA) which exist on every major college and university campus; Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) which drives a great deal of the Interfaith Outreach programs in America and propagates a false narrative about Islam; Muslim American Society (MAS); International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT); Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Americans for Palestine (AFP) a Hamas front now operating on many college campuses; Islamic Shura Council; Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA);  Council on Islamic Education (CIE); North American Imams Federation; most of the over 2100 Islamic Centers in the U.S. today; and many other Islamic organizations.

Facts already in evidence in the largest terrorism trials in American history identify CAIR as the 4th organization created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas here.  Members of Congress, the Department of Justice, and over 20 years of evidence make clear CAIR is operating as a terrorist organization (Hamas) in America with their headquarters office only a block from Congressional offices on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

While Hamas/CAIR continue to publicly threaten UTT founder John Guandolo and personally attack him, UTT continues to present evidence CAIR is a Hamas entity and it and its leaders should be treated as such.

Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga is an Enemy Outpost

Islamic-Society-of-Greater-Chattanooga3Understanding the Threat by John Guandolo, July 24, 2015:

This 5 minute video reveals the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga – like all “Islamic Society of” organizations – is a Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood organization and, therefore, supports jihadi operations like the killing of 4 Marines and 1 sailor on July 16, 2015.

The US v HLF (Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development) (Dallas, 2008) was the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history. The evidence revealed the most prominent Islamic organizations in the U.S. are controlled by Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood. The list of Hamas/MB groups includes the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim American Society (MAS), Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Muslim Students Association (MSA), Islamic Centers, Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT), American Muslims for Palestine, EMERGE, US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), and many others.

Also see:

So the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga announced in 2009 that it openly aligned its views of Jihad with the views of Qaradawi and Maududi, and told its Muslim congregants that donating to the construction of ISGC was permissible, because it represented funding jihad.

The Next Phase in the Destruction of Free Speech Has Begun

shut_up-300x200Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, July 7, 2015:

Sunday’s Washington Post published an article entitled “When Is Freedom of Speech Irresponsible” in which writer David Cole omitted many facts, lied, and used Muslim Brotherhood talking points in an attempt to silence the very people and organizations whose facts and evidence detailing the jihadi threat to the United States and the West are unassailable.

UTT (Understanding the Threat) and its founder John Guandolo along with Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, and Steven Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism were specifically targeted in this article.

Cole’s article references a new book by David K. Shipler, which is a blueprint of the coming assault on those who stand on truth to explain the growing jihadi network in America.  Mr. Shipler was allowed to attend a UTT training program last year to help him understand the threat, yet his work leaves out so many facts that it is clear his intention was and is to deceive and manipulate readers to dismiss the imminent threat to our security from the Islamic Movement.

In fact, Mr. Cole states Shipler’s objective is not to suppress free speech “but simply to demonstrate that their (Guandolo, Gaffney, Emerson) claims are vastly exaggerated and unsubstantiated. In short, he answers their speech with his speech. An objective reader cannot help but come away with a better understanding of the truth. This is the freedom of speech at its best.”

Since what Mr. Shipler writes is objectively not true it means Mr. Cole is equating matching truths with lies and calling it a great debate.  In reality, it is a facade and a deceit.

Specifically, in the Washington Post article states the focal point of everything UTT and other organizations say about the Muslim Brotherhood’s Jihadi Movement is based on one document – “An Explanatory Memorandum” – which is the strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.

Since John Guandolo has written a book on this topic entitled Raising a Jihadi Generation, and the fact he spends nine hours or so in his 3-day training program laying out the evidence of the threat, the claim that the entire understanding of the threat rests on one document is absurd.

Mr. Cole naively states “(Shipler) finds that the central document underlying most of the claims is a 15-page “explanatory memo” found in an FBI search of an Annandale, Va., home in 2004. Signed by Mohamed Akram, a member of the Palestine Committee of the Muslim Brotherhood…Shipler shows that in fact the document is nothing more than a thought piece drafted by a single individual in the early 1990s, and that there is no evidence it was ever considered, much less adopted, by the Muslim Brotherhood or anyone else. Shipler’s research shows that other supposed evidence of the grand Islamist conspiracy is similarly speculative.”

Mr. Cole fails to detail other significant evidence supporting “An Explanatory Memorandum” as a major underpinning of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement in North America, nor does he do any due diligence on the mountain of evidence which exists revealing the MB Movement and modus operandi here – which UTT teaches to law enforcement and national security professionals who acknowledge its relevance and factual/evidentiary basis.

While Mr. Cole reveals “An Explanatory Memorandum” was written by a “member” of the MB’s Palestine Committee – Mohamed Akram – he also fails to reveal to the reader that the Palestine Committee is Hamas in the U.S.  Nor does he tell the reader that Akram is the number two man on the list of the “Palestine Section in America” discovered by the FBI in the raid in Annandale, Virginia.  Furthermore, he does not mention the Memorandum was found among the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood at the home of a senior Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood leader – Ismail Elbarasse.

The Muslim Brotherhood leadership – as well as David Cole and David K. Shipler – continue to dismiss “An Explanatory Memorandum” as just some document found in some garage written by some unknown guy.  In fact, the Memorandum was written by a leader in the MB/Hamas Movement, found among the MB archives in North America, and was entered into evidence in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Dallas 2008).

In UTT’s 3-day “Understanding and Investigating Jihadi Network” course, an entire day is dedicated to walking through facts already in evidence revealing a massive Muslim Brotherhood jihad network threatening the United States.  This information does not hinge merely on “An Explanatory Memorandum” yet it does reveal the MB is doing exactly what the Memorandum says it should do in it’s pursuit of overthrowing the U.S. government and imposing Islamic rule.  This information includes details from dozens of other Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas documents, the results of the fifteen year (15) FBI investigation culminating in the US v HLF trial, testimony of government officials,declassified FBI documents from related investigations of major Islamic organizations like ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), NAIT (North American Islamic Trust), and others, all of which reveals a coordinated, well-funded, and continuous Islamic Movement in the United States and elsewhere with the stated goal of waging “Civilization Jihad” to destroy Western civilization and replace it with Islamic rule.

In fact, since 2006 when UTT founder John Guandolo created and implemented the first counterterrorism training program in the government specifically detailing the Muslim Brotherhood Movement, Sharia, and the penetration of our system, he has openly and repeatedly stated he will remove any information from his briefing that is not factual and supported by evidence.  To date, he has never had to do this.

In fact, Muslim Brotherhood leaders who have attended his public presentations do not say what Guandolo is saying is not true, they tell him they simply do not like that he is saying it.

Most revealing, however, is the fact that this information has been presented to law enforcement officials, military, national security professionals, and senior leaders in America, nearly all of whom have stated the information was unknown to them prior to the course, yet the information details an “insurgency” or Movement in the U.S. which constitutes a major threat that needs to be addressed.

Many of the comments about UTT’s training programs can be found on the UTT website.  These comments from law enforcement, military, and security professionals, reveal how powerful this information is.  One FBI Agent states “This training should be mandatory for every cop and federal agent in America.”

UTT’s 3-day program is the only one like it in the nation, which is why the Muslim Brotherhood and their collaborators from the progressive left continually try to shut it down.  This, in and of itself, is evidence of the power of this program and the truth of the threat.

In April 2011, Director of Central Intelligence (1993-1995) R. James Woolsey, Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (1988-1991) Lieutenant General Ed Soyster, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (2003-2007) Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin, and Inspector General of the Department of Defense (2002-2005) Joseph Schmitz signed a letter supporting John Guandolo and the information he presents on the threat from the Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood.

In part, the letter reads:

“Every citizen in this country should hear what (John Guandolo) has to say. The facts he presents speak for themselves and require no commentary. For local and state law enforcement and intelligence officials, this information is critical to identifying, understanding, and thwarting threats in your locale. UTT gives specific details on how to practically implement this information in your area, which directly affects your community and your families…John is our go-to guy concerning these issues.  His research is thorough, fact-based and logically presented.  He is only biased by reality. We applaud this man of courage and hope you will make the time to hear this presentation.”

In March 2007, UTT Founder John Guandolo and Stephen Coughlin held a one-day seminar at the FBI Academy hosted by the Marine Corps Nation Capital Region Command Antiterrorism/Force Protection (MCNCRC AT/FP) Staff detailing the threat from the Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood, Sharai, and the strategy and modus operandi of this enemy.  In its official communication to the FBI following this presentation, the Colonel leading MCNCRC wrote, in part:

“The CT presentation provided a solid foundation for the pinpointed actual root of Islamic Fundamentalism that is fueling the Global War on Terrorism. In any battle, military personnel are taught to understand the enemy. This is exactly what this presentation provided: a solid understanding of the ideology the enemy is using. The presentation highlighted that the enemy knows who they are, where they come from, and what they want.

“All of the points discussed were backed up with appropriate research, citing and clearly articulating an understanding of the core issues. The research provided quotes and examples of the extremists supporting the Islamist ideological message. There is hardly a more convincing argument then using one’s own words and actions...As a result of this presentation, MCNCRC AT/FP has received numerous requests from DoD, state, federal, and local organizations and agencies who attended the CT seminar, specifically asking to receive this course of instruction and follow on training from SA Guandolo and Mr. Coughlin, in order to share this critical information with their colleagues and subordinates.

“SA Guandolo and Steve Coughlin have identified a critical information and education gap. They should be commended for their initiative to conduct such an in depth study of the enemy and their courage to share their vast knowledge in an effort to better educate others.

“It is recommended that this program be made more readily available to all levels of government and concerned citizens. It is imperative that we as leaders and as a nation understand and can contextualize this threat to our Nation.”

In fact, those who hear this information, realize the threat from the Islamic Movement is real, is present, and must be dealt with as a part of any National Security effort.

In September 2014, UTT hosted a one day training program in Phoenix, Arizona for 300 law enforcement officers from all over the state.  Prior to the course, six (6) Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations in Arizona partnered with their collaborators at the ACLU loudly protested the training program calling it bigoted and hate filled.  They wrote a letter to the Maricopa County Attorney calling for the training to be cancelled.  One of the signers was Usama Shami, the leader of the Hamas/MB’s Islamic Community Center of Arizona – the home of the two jihadis killed in Garland, Texas several weeks ago who were looking to impose Sharia by shutting down free speech.

Also of note is that the MB/Hamas organizations identified by UTT as threats have supported jihadi operations across the nation as has been previously detailed by UTT.

At the end of this one-day program, only nine people in the audience raised their hands and stated they knew this information prior to the training.  Seven of them had been to a prior UTT training and two had been working with the Center for Security Policy.  Everyone in the audience raised their hands when asked if the information was critical to protecting citizens in their state.

The reality is that a strategic assault on our free speech by the progressives on the left is now unfolding and David K. Shipler’s book and support from those like David Cole of the Washington Post are simply the leading edge of this next phase.

Americans must boldly continue to speak truth, not back down, and not be silenced.  The assault on our free speech is, in the eyes of our enemies, is the key move in this war to silence us so we will go along quietly while the Republic burns.

Faithful Americans must not succumb to this.

Remembering America’s Independence in an Era of Tyranny

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, July 4, 2015:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776


America has come so very far from the ideals in the Declaration of Independence.  The Declaration is the ideal from which America was born – out of and with the help of Divine Providence.  The Constitution was the first attempt to put into practice this ideal.  The Constitution cannot be understood outside of the light of the Declaration.

Our liberty, our freedoms – according to the Founders – come from God.  A Constitutional Republic must, as a matter of fact, have a moral standard, and ours always has.  The biblical understanding of right and wrong has defined America’s morality long before our first President was sworn in.  From the Mayflower Compact to how we educated our children in the early 1600’s in Jamestown, the laws and love of God has been at the center of who we are as America.  Our Founders formed a government based on these biblical moral standards which are the fulcrum around which our laws and our system works.  Under this way of life, poisons and threats to our way of life become easy to spot and defeat.  Without moral clarity, victory becomes very hard to maintain and achieve.

On this day, July 4th 2015, let us live up to the standards that our government, laws, and society have been established.

As the threat of the growing Islamic Movement pushes in on decent and civilized society, it is time to stand firm, no matter what the cost.

We have a federal government which has grossly exceeded its authority, violated the law, and demonstrated that individual liberty is not longer the cause for which it stands.

No matter what an individual believes, the underpinnings of this nation were built on a faith in a loving and almighty God whose hand has guided us and made America the great nation it is.  Over the last 50 years, America has turned away from our foundation and we can see the impact on our nation because of it.

We are lost, and our enemies see it.  They believe because we stand for nothing, we are vulnerable.  By failing to stand firm on our founding principles, we are inviting our own destruction and the lives and liberty of our children and grandchildren.  There is nothing “loving” about this.  This is not “tolerance” it is societal suicide.

Lets honor our nation and all of the men and women who have sacrificed so much to defend it over the last few centuries by renewing our individual commitment to liberty and the moral standards that have made us the light on the hill for all the world.

“Islam is the Religion of War”

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

UTT, by John Guandolo, May 18, 2015:

When the leader of the Islamic State, al Baghdadi, said “Islam is not the religion of peace, Islam is the religion of war,” he meant it.

Here are 6 reasons indicating al Baghdadi is correct:

1.  Islamic World is United in Teaching Jihad Must Be Waged Until Islam Rules the World

At Al Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt – the pre-eminent school of Islamic jurisprudence in the world and the oldest – they teach the purpose of Islam is to destroy the Dar al Harb (House of War) until the entire world is the Dar al Islam (House of Islam) and Sharia (Islamic Law) is the law of the land.  The vehicle to do this is called “Jihad” which is only defined in Sharia as “warfare against non-Muslims.”

In Islamic schools across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Central/South America, Mexico, Asia, and North America, first graders are taught that Islam must rule the world, and Christians and Jews are to be hated by Muslims.

All published Sharia mandates jihad until a Caliphate is created and Sharia is the “Law of the Land” across the globe.  All published Sharia only defines “jihad” as “warfare against non-Muslims.”

Note: It is a capital crime in Islam for a Muslim to teach another Muslim something that is incorrect about Islam.

2. Senior Islamic Scholars Call for Jihad Against Non-Muslims

The most prominent and well-educated Islamic scholars call for jihad and the implementation of Sharia, and many are even labeled as “terrorists” by the West.

Omar Abdel Rahman is arguably one of the most respected Islamic scholars alive on the planet today. As some of you may know, he is also known as the “Blind Sheikh,” and is in federal prison in the United States for his involvement with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other plots in New York and beyond. Yet today, Rahman is hailed as a great scholar and many are calling for his release from prison.  He is an Al Azhar trained/educated Islamic scholar.

Abdullah Azzam graduated with a degree in Sharia from Damascus University before being invited to attend Al Azhar University.  After he finished his studies, he was asked to teach at Al Azhar, putting him in a very small and elite group of Islamic scholars.  This is the man who, with Osama bin Laden, developed Al Qaeda and its beginnings.

Sheikh Yusuf al Qaradawi is one of the most widely respected and sought after Islamic scholars in the world today, and hosts the most popular show on Al Jazeera (“Sharia and Life”).  He is currently the President of the International Association of Muslim Scholars (IAMS) and leads the European Council for Fatwa and Research.  He has twice been offered the position of “Supreme Guide” of the International Muslim Brotherhood, and is the man who led the first Jummah prayers in Tahrir Square in Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood overthrew the Mubarak regime.  That was his first time back in Egypt in 30 years because he was banned from Egypt for his involvement in the Muslim Brotherhood’s assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.  Qaradawi is also the Islamic scholar who called for the killing of American civilians in Iraq.

3.  All “Terrorists” Get Their “Version” of Islam Wrong in the Exact Same Way

ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Abu Sayyef, Al Shabab, Hamas, Hizbollah, Egyptian Islamic Jihad, and all Islamic “terrorist” groups on the planet state they are doing what they are doing in order to establish the Caliphate (Global Islamic State) under Sharia law.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s By-Laws say they exist to impose “Allah’s law (sharia) in the land” and establish an “Islamic State.”

The Al Qaeda operatives who bombed the World Trade Center in 1993/USS Cole/US Embassies in Africa (1998)/etc, the 9/11 Hijackers, Major Nidal Hasan (Ft Hood), the “Underwear Bomber,” the Time Square Bomber, the “terrorists” who killed the British soldier in Woolwich (England), the Somalis from Al Shabab who killed citizens in the mall and university attacks (among others) in Kenya, the Muslim who sawed his colleague’s head off in Oklahoma, Terry Lee Lowen who attempted to bomb a plane in Kansas, the jihadis who were killed in Texas in April 2015 (Garland), and all of the other jihadis we and our allies have faced over the last 30 years have all done what they did because they were following the Sharia – and they all say so.

Isn’t it interesting they all say it is a command from Allah to wage jihad until the infidels submit to Allah’s law and an Islamic state is created?  Isn’t it interesting they use the same source materials to quote these commands – all of which have unquestioned authority in Islam?

They all get it wrong in exactly the same way.

4.  Former Muslims Confirm Islam Obliges Jihad and Strict Adherence to Sharia

Scores of men and women who have left Islam – under penalty of death – confirm Islam teaches exactly what Al Qaeda says it does – Jihad is an obligation until Islam rules the world.

Former Muslims United, interestingly, never gets much traction from American media, but their stories are powerful, and they openly discuss the truth about Islam.

Nonie Darwish, whose father was a Shaheed, says “Islam wants to rule the world.”  Former Muslim and Al Azhar scholar Mark Gabriel (alias) makes clear Al Azhar teaches Jihad is a permanent obligation until Islam rules the world under Sharia.   The Quran commands it, and the Prophet Mohammad taught and did it.

5.  The History of Islam is Consistent with Their Doctrine (Sharia)

Over the last 1400 years, when Islam had the material ability and strength to do so (per Sharia), it has waged Jihad on the non-Muslim world.  From the 7th century to today, this has been true.  Western Civilization has defended itself against the Islamic armies since the time Mohammad became a political and military leader in Medina in approximately 623 AD.

In the early 1920’s, the Ottoman Empire (Caliphate) was dissolved by Mustapha Kamal and the nation state of Turkey created. While most people in the West forgot or never knew this, the Muslim world has not forgotten.  Since the Islamic community began growing their wealth from oil money in the 1960’s and ’70’s, the world has watched the growth of the Islamic Jihad – because the Sharia demands it.

Our “ally” – Saudi Arabia – continues to fund the global jihad today.

6.  Where is the Other “Version” of Islam Taught?

The obvious question must be asked: Where is this other mystical and peaceful version of Islam and where is it taught? Can anyone name one authoritative text of Islamic jurisprudence from any country or century that teaches something other than the fact Islam exists to wage Jihad until the world is under the rule of Sharia?

The answer is – “NO.”

There is no authoritative Islamic text that teaches something different because there is no other “version” of Islam.  While you may find books that discuss other definitions of “jihad” and other “versions” of Islam at your local book store, those books are written for YOU, not the Muslim community.  If you want to read what Muslims are taught, you must go to Islamic/Mosque bookstores and read their stuff.

Where is Nadir Soofi Buried?

soofiUTT, by John Guandolo, May 8, 2015:

The funeral for one of the two jihadis killed by police in Garland, Texas last Sunday – Nadir Soofi – was held at the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City (ISGKC) this week.  Soofi’s father has been a member at the ISGKC for over five years and was “very close” to his son.  Similar to his accomplice Elton “Ibrahim” Simpson, whose ties to the MB’s Islamic Community Center of Phoenix were detailed in Wednesday’s Understanding the Threat (UTT) article, Soofi’s funeral in Kansas City raises questions because the ISGKC is ground zero for the Muslim Brotherhood in that part of the country.

As an “Islamic Society” the ISGKC is necessarily a subsidiary of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the “nucleus” for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Movement in North America (see historic MB document, paragraph 5).

The Muslim Brotherhood’s stated objectives in their By-Laws, strategic documents, and all of their doctrine is to establish a global Islamic State under which Sharia (Islamic Law) is the law of the land.  The vehicle to do this is jihad, which the MB only defines as “warfare against non-Muslims.”  Here in the U.S. they are waging a “grand jihad”/civilization jihad to destroy Western civilization from within.

ISGKC is located at 8501 East 99th Street, Kansas City, Missouri.  That property is owed by NAIT (North American Islamic Trust), the bank for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.

In the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history (US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Dallas 2008) ISNA and NAIT were identified by the U.S. government as Muslim Brotherhood organizations which finance Hamas, a designated terrorist organization.  When ISNA and NAIT attempted to have their names removed from the Unindicted Co-Conspirator list in the case, Federal Judge Jorge Solis ruled:  “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with the HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.”  A three judge appellate panel unanimously ruled to leave CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT on the Unindicted Co-Conspirator list where they remain today – because of the evidence they fund Hamas.  CAIR was created as the MB’s fourth Hamas organization in America.

Click here for U.S. Government filing in HLF regarding NAIT (specifically pages 7, 12, 13).

Like Ibrahim Simpson and Nadir Soofi who wanted to kill those who insult the prophet Mohammad, in 2012, the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City petitioned President Obama to ban free speech critical of Islam.  ISGKC is also openly pro-Hamas and anti-Israel.

The former Director of the ISGKC is Mohamad Albadawi, who is listed as a member of the Board of Trustees and President (Kansas) of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim American Society (MAS) on MAS’s national website.  This is the same MAS that publicly lauded Osama bin Laden.

Several months ago, Albadawi was caught on camera saying he “likes” Hassan al Banna (Founder of the Muslim Brotherhood), Sayyid Qutb (major MB ideologue and author of Milestones which operationalizes Sharia), Abdullah Azzam (mentored Osama bin Laden), and Yusuf al Qaradawi (MB legal jurist and one of the most prominent Islamic scholars on the planet) after he was questioned about posting complimentary information about these jihadis on his Facebook site.

Of course he likes al Banna, Qutb, Azzam and Qaradawi.  Albadawi is a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kansas and Missouri.  Why wouldn’t he?


L to R: Mahdi Bray (Executive Director, MAS), George Galloway (Former British MP, Hamas Fundraiser), and Mohamad Albadawi (far right) at an event in Overland, Kansas.


Nadir Soofi is laid to rest amidst a nest of Muslim Brotherhood organizations and leaders who continue to support jihad in America.  Isn’t this curious.?

There exists today substantial probable cause to believe Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the United States, including the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City and the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix, are materially supporting “terrorism” and conspiring to overthrow the government of the United States.

Where are the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces?  Where are the U.S. Attorneys filing charges?  Where are Americans demanding they do so?

SHOCKER: Texas Jihadis Trained at Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Community Center of Phoenix

Islamic Community Center of Phoenix (ICCP)

Islamic Community Center of Phoenix (ICCP)

UTT, by John Guandolo, May 5, 2015:

As in nearly every jihadi attack in America since 9/11 – those thwarted and those which succeed in their evil plans – the jihadis were trained at a Muslim Brotherhood organization, the FBI is still looking for a motive, anti-American groups like the ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center take sides with the terrorists, the media focuses on ensuring Muslims are not offended and turns to Hamas (doing business as CAIR) for advice, and the root of the problem is – yet again – ignored.

One Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leader in Phoenix, Arizona – Usama Shami – confirmed the two jihadis who were killed in Garland, Texas attended Shami’s MB Islamic Community Center of Phoenix (ICCP).  Shami specifically stated he knew both shooters well, especially Elton Simpson, and that Simpson had attended the ICCP for over ten years.

The property for the ICCP is owned by the bank for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America – NAIT (North American Islamic Trust).  NAIT was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood entity and a financial support organization for Hamas (a designated terrorist organization) in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history (US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Dallas, 2008).

Click here for U.S. Government filing in HLF regarding NAIT (specifically pages 7, 12, 13).

The FBI was investigating NAIT back in the 1980’s for being a part of the Ikhwan (MB) in America.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Arabic website says it is waging a “Long and unrelenting jihad” against the West.  Their strategic document for North America – “An Explanatory Memorandum” – says “their work in America is a kind of grand jihad and calls for “Civilization Jihad” to “destroy Western civilization from within.”  The Muslim Brotherhood’s By-Laws state the MB “is an international Muslim body which seeks to establish Allah’s law (Sharia) in the land…” and call Muslims to “be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing the Islamic state.”

The MB’s strategic documents also says that MB Islamic Centers are the “axis” of their Movement to “supply (their) battalions.”  They go on to say their Islamic Centers are like the first Mosque in Medina which Mohammed established.  That mosque was where they stored food, water, ammunition and weapons.  It is where jihadis lived and trained.  It is where battles were planned, and was the place from which battles were launched.  The MB states this is the function of their Islamic Centers in America.

Reminder:  Hamas IS the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine.

We have the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix owned by the MB bank and two of its longstanding members committing jihad against non-Muslims in accordance with Sharia.  What else would you expect?

The ICCP’s President Usama Shami said in a news interview that “All of the teachings in this mosque is against those actions (taken by Simpson and Soofi)…both of them were never engaged in any politics or any extreme views or extreme opinions.”

It is interesting that when he spoke with the LA Times Shami said he had not seen Simpson in a month, but later in the above video interview that time was extended to two to three months.  Lie much?

Will we believe him or the doctrine the MB states his Islamic Center adheres to?

This is an interesting contrast to Simpson’s attorney who said:  “He was very devout.  He was very vocal about being devout…I know that some of the statements he made like if you die on the battlefield then you get, whatever, you get the wives…that’s a belief of the Muslim faith.”

Nearly every jihadi who has launched an attack on U.S. soil since and including 9/11/2001, as well as those attacks which were thwarted by law enforcement, has been “radicalized”, trained, funded, and/or supported by one of the thousands of Muslim Brotherhood organizations across the United States.  From the Muslim Students Association (MSA), the Islamic Societies, Islamic Centers, Muslim American Society, and so many others, jihadis are launching jihad on our home turf and the very organizations and individuals leading those organizations are getting a free pass.

When will the arrest warrant for Usama Shami be issued for material support of terrorism?  How about shutting down the ICCP, seizing its property, taking its money, and bulldozing it to the ground?

How bad will it have to get before you decide enough is enough America?

A Conversation About the Jihadi Threat

quote-facts-are-stubborn-things-and-whatever-may-be-our-wishes-our-inclinations-or-the-dictates-of-our-john-adams-205446UTT, by John Guandolo, April 30, 2015:

Recently I had a frank conversation with someone whom I respect, yet who is blind to the threat posed by the Global Islamic Movement.  I often hear from many UTT followers about their experiences sharing their concern about this threat with otherwise intelligent, caring, and reasonable people who do not take it seriously and end up defending Islam because they know a friendly Muslim.

I offer this simple exchange as a lesson on one way to break through this layer of unbelief.

For the purposes of this conversation, in this transcript of the conversation, I am “JG” and the other person is “UM.”

JG:  So what is it we are talking about today.

UM:  I am having a hard time understanding how a guy like you who seems to be a patriotic and serious-minded faithful man can have so much hate for Muslims.  I have worked with Muslims and know several who are amazing people and whom I call ‘friends.’

JG:  What gives you the impression I hate any group of people, including Muslims?

UM:  I have seen your youtube videos and read some of your stuff.

JG:  And where in any of that did I say I hate Muslims?

UM:  You don’t but you make it clear you believe Islam is the threat we face.

JG:  Islam is the threat we face, and we will get to that in a minute.  However, I have never said I hate Muslims because I do not.  Neither do I have any concern with people who self-identify themselves as Muslims and who simply want to live their lives under the laws of the United States.  However, Muslims in America who want to impose Sharia (Islamic Law) by all means possible including force on non-Muslims or even Muslims who do not want to live under it, are a direct threat to our Republic, our Constitution, and to our entire system of government and rule of law.

UM:  There is the broad brush you always use.  There are many versions of Sharia.  You make it sound like it is one simple system.

JG:  Because it is.  All Islamic scholars agree that the object of Islam is to destroy the Dar al Harb (House of War) until the entire world is the Dar al Islam (House of Islam) ruled by Sharia Law under a Caliph.  The vehicle to do this is called “Jihad” which is only defined in Sharia (Islamic Law) as ‘warfare against non-Muslims.’  This is taught across the globe in all of the schools of Islamic Jurisprudence down to the first grade level in text books in Islamic schools.  Can you give me the name of one authoritative Islamic Law book that says something other than that?  Can you tell me where another “version” of Islam is taught in Virginia?  In the United States?  Anywhere on the planet?

UM:  That’s a ridiculous question.  I am not an Islamic scholar.

JG:  So, what Islamic Law have you read?

UM:  I haven’t read any, but I…

JG:  So you are arguing with me about something you have no knowledge of, yes?

UM:  I am saying you are making sweeping statements about Islam that are not true?

JG:  Which of the statements I just made is not true?

UM:  I don’t know, but I do know Islam isn’t what you say it is.

JG:  How do you know that?

UM:  Because no religion exists to put the world under it’s control.

JG:  Islam does and it teaches it’s revolutionary ideology to children even before they reach kindergarten.  And again I ask you, how can you know what Islam does or does not claim as its doctrine if you have admitted you have never read even a page of it?

UM:  I don’t know.

JG:  Is it possible that you are basing your understanding of Islam based on individuals you know who identify themselves as “Muslims” yet do not subscribe to the very thing Islam tells its adherents they must obey – Sharia?

UM:  That’s a possibility, but I have never met a Muslim who says they want to overturn our laws and make Sharia the law in America.

JG:  So, the fact you have never met a Muslim who subscribes to Sharia forms your entire understanding of Islam, correct?

UM:  Well, yeah.

JG:  Do you see how that may not be the most logical way to understand a real threat that is currently conquering nations and killing tens of thousands of people across the globe?

UM:  I can see your perspective, but don’t you think the grievances of Muslims has something to do with the violence we are witnessing?

JG:  First, this is not my “perspective.”  Everything I teach about Islamic Law comes from Islamic sources that have authority in Islam and cannot be factually denied by Islamic doctrine.  Secondly, do you have any evidence, besides the words of Islamic leaders, that the jihadis are doing what they are doing for economic, educational, or social reasons.

UM:  Nothing I can point to, but I could probably find something.

JG:  OK.  I encourage you to find a factual basis for what we are seeing based on economic, educational, and social reasons.  You won’t find them however.  They are fighting us because their doctrine commands them to.

UM:  That seems so difficult to believe.

JG:  Are you willing to agree that their doctrine is Sharia?

UM:  I suppose that is reasonable.  I mean, all of the terrorists we capture or arrest seem to say the same thing.  Like they want a Caliphate under Sharia, they hate Israel, and are doing grotesque acts of violence.

JG:  And they support their actions by quoting Islamic Law and the Quran, yes?

UM:  Yeah.

JG:  What are the differences in the objectives of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hizbollah, Boko Haram, and all the other jihadist groups?

UM:  I don’t know.

JG:  They all state they want a Caliphate under Sharia.

UM:  All of them?

JG:  Yes.

UM:  What about the Muslim Brotherhood?  They seem to want to change things politically, not violently.

JG:  Have you read the Muslim Brotherhood creed, or studied its log, or read their By-Laws?

UM:  No.

JG:  Would it surprise you if I told you their doctrine also calls for the establishment of the Caliphate under Sharia, and recently they just called for a “long and unrelenting jihad”?

UM:  It would.

JG:  Maybe we can continue this conversation after you do some more study on the Sharia.

Islam’s Message to “Islamophobes” – Shut Up or Else

imagescaok312n (2)UTT, by John Guandolo, April 16, 2015:

In a number of interviews and presentations recently, Understanding the Threat (UTT) has received questions about how our enemy uses the label of “Islamophobe” to silence and threaten those who speak honestly and factually about the threat of the Islamic Movement here and abroad.

In a brief attempt to review, we will simply look at three key pieces of information:  the Islamic Law of Slander, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) Cairo Declaration, and the OIC’s 10 Year Programme of Action.

In Sharia (Islamic Law), “Slander” is defined as to say anything about a Muslim or Islam he would dislike. (Umdat al Salik, Holding One’s Tongue).  Veracity of the statement is irrelevant.  Therefore, to factually explain to people that Sharia obliges Muslims to wage jihad (warfare against non-Muslims) until the entire world is under the rule of Sharia, can be considered “Slander” because the Muslim community does not want non-Muslims to know this right now.  You will know everything you need to know about Sharia when you are under the weight of it.

Slander is a capital crime in Islamic Law.

The OIC is the largest international body in the world, second only to the UN, and is made up of all 57 Islamic States on the planet.  Yes, 57 states.

In 1990, during the OIC’s Extraordinary Session, the Heads of State and Kings of every Muslim nation on earth approved the Cairo Declaration.  This document states that the entire Muslim world agrees with the International Declaration of Human Rights, insofar as it does not contradict Sharia.  To quote Articles 24 and 25:  “ARTICLE 24 – All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shari’ah.  ARTICLE 25 – The Islamic Shari’ah is the only source of reference for the explanation or clarification of any of the articles of this Declaration.”

In other words, the Muslim world does not adhere to the rest of the world’s understanding of “Human Rights.”  In 1993, the OIC served the Cairo Declaration to the UN, thus putting the world on notice that beheading Christians, killing homosexuals, and subjugating women, were all in accordance with Islamic “Human Rights.”

In 2005, the OIC published their “Ten Year Programme of Action” in which they make “Combatting Islamophobia” a main focus of their plan.  It specifically highlighs the need to “combat defamation” of religion (read: “Islam”).  The Programme states:   “Endeavor to have the United Nations adopt an international resolution to counter Islamophobia, and call upon all States to enact laws to counter it, including deterrent punishments.”  Punishments for speech the Muslim world doesn’t “like.”  Here they are tying “Islamophobia” to the Islamic Law of Slander and demonstrating their desire to punish violators.

At the international level this is a gross assault on our rule of law, the foundational principles of Western civilization, and basis decency.  Nothing surprising here from a global Movement which beheads 8 year olds and puts their heads on spikes to line the roads, sets fire to people, and calls for the death of all Jews so they can go to Paradise.

Videos: Clare Lopez and John Guandolo sounding the alarm on USCMO influence operation


By Tom Trento of The United West:

On Monday April 13 and Tuesday 14 Muslim Terrorists walking around the United States Congress will demand that our elected Representatives change federal law thereby making it harder to investigate Muslim terrorists. I know, crazy stuff, but it is happening right in broad daylight! THANK Allah that we at The United West are experts at investigating Muslim Brotherhood terrorists and exposing their influence operations for all Americans to understand and properly respond. To accomplish this we are launching a five-part investigative series entitled: “Muslim Terrorists Lobby 114th Congress.” Our show today focuses on what the Members of the 114th Congress should do when the terrorists ENTER their offices. And what is that? THROW THEM OUT THE DOOR! Why in the world should an elected Member of Congress give any time to KNOWN terrorists who have a written agenda that includes destroying the essence of the Capitol building in which they are meeting! Watch this show as it is FULL of critically important information to help all Americans properly, professionally and legally DEFEAT this Muslim Brotherhood political influence operation.


Newsmax: Ex-FBI Agent: DC’s National Muslim Day Pushes Radical Islam

National Muslim Advocacy Day, being held Monday on Capitol Hill, is a cunning bid by radical Islam to gain political power in the U.S., counterterrorism expert John Guandolo tells Newsmax TV.

“This kind of event has several key elements to it. The first is they’re trying to declare the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations is a Muslim political party in the U.S. and candidates are going to have to be vetted by them,” Guandolo, a former FBI agent, said on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”

It’s also a demonstration to the Muslim community in the U.S. and outside the U.S. that they have a very heavy hand inside our leadership realm and inside Washington, D.C.

“Because here are open Hamas organizations — the American Muslims for Palestine, the Council on American Islamic Relations — and they’re just wandering freely around the D.C. area.”

The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations describes itself as “a coalition of leading national and local American Muslim organizations.”

The event is expected to draw Muslim delegates from across the nation and will “connect national, regional and state Muslim organizations, community members with more than one-third of the U.S. House of Representatives and a half of the Senate,” the group said in a statement.

But Guandolo — author of “Raising a Jihadi Generation: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America,” published by Guandolo Associates LLC — said the event is a “smaller piece in the larger civilization jihad.”

“[That] is the term the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic memorandum says that they are doing. So this political warfare, subversion, and propaganda … fulfills a part of that,” he said.

“No. 1, they have a political presence. [And] It’s political warfare in the sense they’re establishing a much louder voice, at least in their opinion, up on Capitol Hill.

“And [there’s] the idea that, ‘Hey, members of Congress, if you don’t accept us, then you obviously are racists, bigots, and Islamophobes.”’

Guandolo said he was surprised some participants would even be allowed on Capitol Hill “without the FBI, DHS, and Capitol police arresting them — because these guys are leaders of Hamas in North America.”

US Jihadi Political Party to Blitz Capitol Hill Next Week

UTT, by John Guandolo, April 8, 2015:

April 13, 2015 is “Muslim Advocacy Day” on Capitol Hill.

The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) will spend Monday and Tuesday of next week on Capitol Hill advocating their position as the first national Muslim political party.

Formed in June of 2014, the USCMO is made up entirely of Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations – but that is redundant since Hamas is an inherent part of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Hamas is the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine.

Reminder:  Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.

No surprise – the Muslims who will “represent” the Muslim community in our nation’s capitol actually represent jihadi (“Terrorist”) organizations.

This is another attempt by our enemies to put a tuxedo on a turd and call it dessert.  Let us pray our leaders don’t line up to eat.

The brazenness of this effort by the enemy with no response from our leaders is what should concern American citizens.

Facts and evidence apparently have little weight these days, but lets lay them out anyway.

is made up of the Muslim American Society (MAS), Islamic Circle of North American (ICNA), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), The Mosque Cares (Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed), American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), American Muslim Alliance (AMA) and The Mosque Foundation (Chicago).

MAS was identified by its leaders and the U.S. government (US v Sabri Benkhala) as a Muslim Brotherhood organization.

ICNA was identified as a part of the MB’s Movement in North America by evidence in the US v Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial in Dallas, Texas in 2008 – the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history.

The ICNA/MAS Training Guide calls on its adherents to establish an Islamic State under Sharia and “wage war” to do so (page 117/321).

CAIR was identified by evidence in the US v HLF trial as being the 4th organization created by the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas) to be a front for Hamas here.  The Federal Judge and the Appellate Panel agreed.

The Mosque Cares is a part of Imam W. Deen Mohammed’s jihadi network.

American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) is one of the latest fronts created by Hamas in the U.S. led by Muslim Brother Dr. Hatem Bazyan.

The Board of Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA) is littered with Hamas leaders including…all of them.  Dr. Jess Ghannam, Dr. Hatem Bazian (name familiar?), Tarek Alkadri, Mouffa Nahhas, and Khalil Meek.  Alkadri, Nahhas, and Meek all openly served in various positions for Hamas in the U.S. (dba “CAIR”).

MUNA is another well-known MB organization which is a part of the American Muslim Task Force, yet another conglomerate of MB/Hamas organizations whose leaders are made up of the usual suspects.

MANA is led by senior MB leaders Ihsan Bagby and Siraj Wahhaj.  Readers may recall that Wahhaj is an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and was a “character witness” for the Blind Sheik, Omar Abdel Rahman.  MANA’s shura council previously included Luqman Ameen Abdullah before he waskilled by the FBI when they raided his Masjid al Haqq  mosque in Detroit mosque a few years ago.  Abdullah’s group sought to establish an “Islamic State” under “Shariah Law.”

AMA can be summed up by a quote from the protege of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Founder Hassan al Banna quoted on AMA’s website:  “Membership in AMA is not optional but mandatory for every Muslim.”  Dr. Maher Hathout, Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) – also an MB organization.  Decades ago, Hathout and his brother spent time in Egyptian jail for being members of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Chairman of AMA is Dr. Agha Saeed.  You guessed it – he is a Hamas leader.

The Mosque Foundation in Chicago is a Hamas front.  Its leader Sheik Kifah Mustapha was a named unindicted co-conspirator in the US v HLF trial (largest Hamas trial in American history) because he raised money for Hamas.

So, next Monday, Capitol Hill will be swarmed by Hamas jihadis in suits. These men should be in jail, not on Capitol Hill.

UTT encourages all readers to contact their Senators and Representatives and ask them why they are allowing terrorists on Capitol Hill.
