The Boston Bombers’ Radicalization (Myth vs. Fact)

images (55)By Ex-terrorist and Arab analyst Walid Shoebat

I got tired of watching the ‘experts’ and commentators on TV hunt for the ‘radicalization’ of the Tsarnaev brothers. These began to sound more like a chiwawa’s continual bark rather than an honest view of the problem at hand.

Americans’ views are being molded to think that the two brothers got transformed from peace-loving Muslims to fanatic, bomb-throwing radicals by a slow process. So the hunt is on, not to find the real culprits behind terrorism but to find clues of a radicalization process.

But the truth is that this ‘radicalization process’ is a myth coined by Americans who were gradually transformed by Muslim apologists to believe in it. Both Anwar Al-Awlaki and Feiz Muhammad (the latter was who inspired the Tsarnaevs) also stated that “Islam was hijacked by a few” to later support terrorism out in the open.

Incidentally, in 2010, Feiz Muhammad called for the murder of Dutch politician Geert Wilders:


The problem with understanding the whole Islamic terrorism phenomenon is not the fault of the Muslim terrorists who for years have explained that they want us to abandon secularism for Sharia. Rather, it is the fault of Islamic terrorist sympathizers who have slowly transformed Americans into believing that a radicalization process exists and that “Islam was hijacked by a few radical elements”.

Indeed, if our terrorism policy-makers understand the radicalization phenomenon, then how can one explain the State Department and how none other than the radicals infiltrated it? In order to “engage the Moderate Muslim world” they commissioned Imam Sheikh Feisal Abdul Rauf, the ‘radical’ behind the Ground Zero Mosque who got in because he was “nice” and only moderated his tone in English.

We, not the State Department, were the first to translate – at least publicly – his doublespeak from popular Arab media where Rauf wrote an article in Jordan’s Al-Ghad, in which he clearly supported Hezbollah and Hamas, adding that they represented “the trend towards Islamic law and justice” because according to Rauf “secularism had failed to deliver what the Muslim wants, which is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Then, regarding the U.S., he discussed how Muslims must lobby the west to make it non-secular and “Sharia Compliant”?

If westerners seek honest answers into ‘radicalization’, they must first examine the process of Islamic Da’wa or ‘missionary work’. It is here where one can rarely find the radical statements required to label the movement ‘radical’. It’s the process where the Da’wa proponent plays his role as ‘good-cop’ while the bad-cop makes the sinister and quick transformation of Muslims into Jihadists fanatics.


‘Ground Zero Mosque’ Imam Sued for Fraud

Suhail Khan, John Esposito, Karen Armstrong, Tariq Ramadan, Feisal Abdul Rauf appear at Hamas- and Muslim Brotherhood-linked ISNA convention

Jihad Watch:

Imagine the outcry if a prominent Republican Party operative, an imam publicly dedicated to “building bridges” with non-Muslims, and three world-renowned Islamic scholars appeared at a convention of a group closely linked to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. You’re right, there would be no outcry at all, for that is exactly what happened over the weekend, as Suhail Khan, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, John Esposito, Karen Armstrong and Tariq Ramadan appeared, along with Nihad Awad of Hamas-linked CAIR, at the annual convention of the Hamas- and Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

According to former FBI agent John Guandolo:

  • The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is the largest  Muslim Brotherhood (MB) organization in North America, created to be the “nucleus” for the Islamic Movement, according to MB documents seized by the FBI in Annandale, Virginia in 2004.
  • Because of the evidence ISNA is a Brotherhood front, as well as  the numerous financial documents detailing money going directly from  ISNA and their banks to Hamas entities overseas, ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v. Holy Land Foundation), which was adjudicated in 2008 in Dallas, Texas.
  • When ISNA filed a motion with the federal court to have their  name removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list, the government  stated that ISNA exists to be a financial support entity for Hamas. The  federal judge agreed stating the government provided “ample evidence” and left ISNA on the list. A three-judge appellate panel unanimously agreed and left ISNA on the unindicted co-conspirator list.
  • ISNA’s two key directors and its President, Mohamed Magid (pictured above), all work with Secretary Clinton and her office. So, the leaders of a Hamas-supporting entity are advising the U.S. Secretary of State.

But none of that stopped these luminaries, who of course do not hesitate to try to tar the defenders of freedom with guilt by association at every possible turn, while not hesitating to associate with a highly unsavory group connected to violent jihadis and pro-Sharia Islamic supremacists.

Imam Feisal’s Taqiyyah Performance

by JanSuzanne Krasner at American Thinker:

Congratulations  have to go to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, better known as the Ground Zero Imam, for  his splendid performance on Sean Hannity’s May 23 evening interview.   Whether Hannity knew it or not, Imam Feisal used his audience to deliver a  well-thought out ‘taqiyyah’ act where he apologizes profusely, as a “moderate”  Muslim, for his various “insensitive” remarks about Americans being accessories  to 9/11, their role in spilling more blood than Al Queda, and for not condemning  Hamas, Hezbollah and Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist groups.

Hannity  seemed to be really taken aback, actually disarmed by the Imam’s confession of  regret. After all, Hannity has been on the case of this Imam since the  controversy of the Park51 (originally Cordoba House) mosque project near Ground  Zero. Hannity even praised him for having the courage to come on his  show.

No  one on the Imam’s team doubted that Hannity would be confrontational and the  Imam was ready to play right into it. This was the perfect opportunity for the  American public to see and hear how the Muslim scholars’ teachings of ‘taqiyya’  really work when a Muslim is cornered and needs to gain the trust of  non-believers to further his agenda.

‘Taqiyya,’  for those of you new to this Islamic word, is about lying to pave the way to  defeat the Infidel.  But, when Imam Feisal spoke one could swear he was  telling the truth. In fact, I do believe that in his mind, he was admitting the  truth.  And what is that truth?  That he was “insensitive,” that he is  sorry for what he said and that he now admits that Hamas, Hezb’allah and some  factions of the Muslim Brotherhood are terrorists.

We  should definitely believe him at these words, as they have no real meaning.   Imam Feisal does not say he disagrees with the comments he had made, only  that he is sorry he made them. He had let the cat out of the bag and now he sees  how foolish that was in his new role in American-Muslim  affairs.

All  of this apologizing softened the atmosphere so the Imam could use the  opportunity to try to bring the American people into a unity with “moderate”  Muslims and focus on fighting extremists of all faiths…and to sell his new  book ‘Moving the Mountain.’ On the surface, this sounds like a good plan. After  all, having this Imam on our side against terrorists should be

What  we do not hear him talk about is how the ideology of Islam, its political, legal and social values, is cleverly entering  into America’s financial, judicial,  governmental, educational and social systems.  We do not hear the Imam talk  about American cities that are being colonized by Muslim immigrants who are  running away from terrible conditions and looking for a better life than they  have in any Muslim country today, bringing with them the hopes for Sharia law in  the future of America.  Imam Feisal admits that Muslims “must abide by  the law of the land.” Therefore the struggle for Sharia in America is critical  to the well-being of its Qur’an believers.
