Are Massachusetts, Michigan, and Minnesota Surrendering to the Jihadis?

UTT, by John  Guandolo, Nov. 9, 2015:

The state of Massachusetts appears to have surrendered to Hamas; Hamtramck, Michigan now has a Muslim majority city council; and the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota is carrying the water for jihadis by putting the weight of the U.S. Attorney’s Office behind the terrorist’s information operation to silence those who speak truthfully about Islam.

UTT is again forced to ask the question – how long will Americans sit idly by while their elected officials (at all levels) surrender our nation, piece by piece, to our enemy?


On November 12th, the day after Veteran’s Day, Hamas will be flexing it’s muscles on the steps of the Massachusetts State House in Boston by hosting a “Muslim Day.”

Participating in this event will be Massachusetts State Legislators Marjorie Decker and Sonia Chang-Diaz.

Boston is the place where Patriots – the Sons of Liberty – tossed tea into the Boston Harbor in 1773 because we were being taxed by the British Crown without representation (Tea Act).

The citizens of Boston may want to consider throwing their elected officials into the Harbor for aiding and abetting a designated terrorist organization, namely Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

CAIR is a Hamas organization per the evidence 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).

The U.S. Department of Justice identified CAIR as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s (MB) Palestine Committee (Hamas).

Senator Ted Cruz (TX) and Representative Mario Diaz-Balart (FL) have recently filed legislation to designate the MB a “Foreign Terrorist Organization.”

In Hamtramck, Michigan the city council is now two thirds Muslim, making it the first Muslim majority city council in America.

IC-Hamtramck-300x143Those who have been elected are Sharia-adherent Muslims and, therefore, their election is not Constitutionally allowed because they support a system of government that mandates an overthrow of our Constitutional Republic and a suppression/destruction of our liberties.

If recent history is any prediction of future events, we can expect the federal government to do nothing…unless of course Constitutionally minded citizens question this development in Hamtramck.

Meanwhile, unsuspecting citizens in the city of Hamtramck, who appear to be ignorant of the teachings of Islam and the repercussions of Islam in our society, believe the Muslim city council members have “accomplished a lot for the city.”

UTT is hopeful the people of Hamtramck have televisions so they can watch their coming future as they witness European cities being destroyed by these same people.

In keeping with the federal government’s overt support for terrorists, and their disregard for:  (1) their Oaths of Office, (2) the founding principles of the Declaration of Independence, and (3) the Constitution, the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota has joined forces with the international jihadi community to silence the truth and suppress the God-given rights of American citizens to freely express themselves.

lugerAndrew M. Luger, in an open letter in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on November 2nd, said “The current wave of Islamophobia needs to be stopped in its tracks. Minnesota has a thriving, patriotic and entrepreneurial Muslim population. By collectively rejecting attacks on Muslim Minnesotans, we can set an example for the rest of the nation.”

Interesting that Mr. Luger’s comments mirror the language of the global Islamic Movement which calls for “deterrent punishment” for anything that offends Islam.  This quote comes from the OIC’s 10-year plan.  The OIC, of course, is the largest voting block in the UN, and is made up of all 57 Muslim states on the planet.

Mr. Luger has likely never heard of the OIC.

The question citizens of Minnesota should ask Mr. Luger is:  “What Islamic Law have you read.”  He has not read any.  He is taking the Imams and Islamic leaders at their word, despite the evidence they are Sharia-compliant and many are a part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadi network in the United States.

This is unprofessional conduct on Mr. Luger’s part.

“Islamophobia” is saying anything about Islam or Muslims they would dislike.  It is the implementation of the Islamic Law of Slander.  In Islamic Law (Sharia) Slander is a capital offense.

In case Mr. Luger has not noticed, human beings are being killed and silenced by threats of death (including in the United States) for “offending” Muslims.

It is reasonable to assume that if someone threatened to kill Mr. Luger, there would be a full investigation immediately opened and his office would pursue those threatening him to the fullest extent of the law.

Yet, Mr. Luger’s response to the threat of Islam in America is to commit to “stopping” free speech “in its tracks” when it comes to speaking about Islam.  Mr. Luger mistakenly takes the anger of the citizens as hatred towards Muslims, when actually it a demonstration of their frustration of dealing with the legitimate fear of a real threat (Jihadis) while those charged with defending our society (eg Mr. Luger) overtly side with the enemy.

The anger is directed at people like Mr. Luger.

The Road Forward

For Americans, there are difficult decisions which are no longer rapidly approaching – they are here.

Our leaders continue to sit on their hands while our enemies gather strength and prepare to wage war against communities all around America.  Yet, state houses (Massachusetts), cities (Hamtramck, MI), and U.S. Attorney’s like Andrew Luger surrender to or do the bidding of our enemy.

Where are the Sons of Liberty now?

When Students Cheer Jihad

we_are_all_hamasFrontpage, by David Horowitz, Nov. 10, 2015:

Reprinted from the Washington Times

Editor’s note: The following op-ed marking the launch of the Freedom Center’s new Stop the Jihad on Campus campaign appeared November 5, 2015 in the Washington Times. Click here to view the campaign’s list of the Ten Top American Universities Most Friendly to Terrorists. 

Calling things by their right names is a prerequisite for seeing them as they really are. Last spring I spoke at more than half a dozen universities, including Ohio State and Stony Brook, where I was confronted by mobs of students cheering Hamas, a terrorist organization whose declared goal is the extermination of the Jews. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. On virtually every major university campus in America organizations exist whose leadership is dedicated to spreading the propaganda lies of Hamas designed to weaken and delegitimize the Israeli state, and promoting Hamas campaigns like Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) whose goal is its destruction.

The two leading organizations in this terrorist proxy campaign are the Muslim Students Association (MSA), which poses as a cultural group but is really a recruiting tool for its founding group, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which was also created by a Brotherhood operative and takes an even more aggressive pro-terrorist role on campus defending Hamas rocket attacks on Israel and advancing its propaganda wars.

There are many ways to criticize Israeli policy, both reasonably and unreasonably. But what distinguishes these two groups is the relentless adherence of their members to the propaganda lines — and lies — of the terrorist organization Hamas, and their unwavering defense of Hamas’ aggressive wars against Israel and the Jews. A prominent slogan of SJP and MSA, chanted at ritual campus protests, is “From the River to the Sea Palestine will be Free.” The river is the Jordan, the eastern boundary of Israel, the sea is the Mediterranean, its western boundary. These groups are committed to the destruction of the Jewish state — an act of genocide.

It is true that some chapters of the Muslim Students Association, which is a sponsor of the Israel-hate fests called “Israeli Apartheid Week,” do not participate in these political activities. But name one of them who has dissociated itself from their hateful agendas.

Even more telling is an infamous panel of four maps which is a standard feature of the “apartheid walls” (another Hamas propaganda lie — the security fence is designed to keep terrorists out, not ethnic groups) that are centerpieces of their protests. The first map shows a green state called Palestine with the date 1947. There was no state called Palestine (indeed there was no people calling themselves Palestinians) in 1947. The next three maps with expanding patches of white purport to show the infiltration and occupation of the non-existent Palestinian state by the colonialist Jews. These lies are easily checked. There is no occupation by Israel of Arab land. Israel was created the same way Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Syria were created — on land that belonged to the Turks for 400 years previously.

The fidelity of the Muslim Students Association and Students for Justice in Palestine to Hamas’ genocidal agendas is no mystery since both were created by agents of the Muslim Brotherhood. The mystery is why American universities like Brandeis, UCLA and scores of other schools are funding operations of a terrorist organization to conduct Jew-hating propaganda on American campuses. Any other group that preached hatred of ethnic groups or supported barbaric terrorists who slaughter men, women and children as part of a demented mission to cleanse the earth of infidels would face campus sanctions, disciplinary action, and be charged with conduct code violations. But these two groups, hiding behind the rhetoric of diversity and the cloak of political correctness, are instead lauded by university administrators, granted university offices, departmental funding for their hate-fests and a stage for their terrorist-supporting propaganda.

To expose this travesty and raise these questions the David Horowitz Freedom Center has launched a campaign ( on American campuses. The campaign has issued a report on “The 10 Colleges Most Friendly to Terrorists.” These include San Francisco State whose students scrawled “My Heroes Have Always Killed Colonizers” across the concrete stage at an anti-Israel rally. They include UCLA, where student government officers attempted to bar candidates for student government from accepting trips to Israel sponsored by pro-Israel organizations. They include Harvard University whose Dining Services administrators made a unilateral decision to ban products from the Israeli company SodaStream; and Rutgers University, whose Students for Justice in Palestine chapter displayed signs calling for a new Intifada (terrorist attack) against Israel at a recruitment drive.

It is a mistake to assume that these hate groups will be satisfied with mere rhetoric. Numerous leaders of the Muslim Students Association have gone on to high-level positions in al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. The most notorious of these was Anwar al-Awlaki, the head of al Qaeda in Yemen, who inspired the Fort Hood massacre and who before that was president of the Muslim Students Association at Colorado State. A recent student leader of the General Union of Palestinian Students at San Francisco State University spoke openly on social media about his desire to stab Israeli soldiers and leave school to join the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terrorist group waging war against Israel. His postings led the Joint Terrorism Task Force and the FBI to place him under investigation. How many other student leaders are out there who are less forthcoming about their desires?

Ted Cruz Is Right: The Muslim Brotherhood Is a Terrorist Organization

Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Jordan, November 2014 (Khalil Mazraawi/AFP/Getty)

Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Jordan, November 2014 (Khalil Mazraawi/AFP/Getty)

National Review, by Andrew C. McCarthy, Nov.7, 2015:

“The Muslim Brotherhood youth in Egypt reject any form of violence.” So said Rachid Ghannouchi, who — you’ll no doubt be stunned to hear — heads up the Muslim Brotherhood’s Tunisian branch, Ennahda.

Naturally, Ghannouchi gave his Egyptian confederates a clean bill of health while speaking as an invited guest of the U.S. Institute for Peace in Washington. He is a master of the Brotherhood game, consulted by the State Department and a bipartisan Beltway clerisy ever on the hunt for that elusive “moderate Islamist.” He is an Islamic supremacist who knows he can worm his way into Washington’s heart by whispering sweet nothings about “democracy,” “pluralism,” and their seamless compatibility with sharia — Islam’s authoritarian, discriminatory, and brutally punitive legal code and societal framework.

It is nonsense, but Ghannouchi knows it is precisely the nonsense our government wants to hear. We don’t want to know about the Brotherhood, but man oh man do the Brothers ever go to school on us. Ghannouchi understands that if he chants “democracy” and “non-violence” enough times, there will be no inconvenient mention of his support of Hamas — the terrorist organization that is the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. No one will bring up his 2009 call for the opening of a “third jihadist front” against Israel. No one will quote his proclamations such as “I bring glad tidings that the Arab region will get rid of the germ of Israel” or “There are no civilians in Israel. Men, women and children, they are all reserves soldiers and can therefore be killed” — or that the United States government is “the great Satan.” Not a word will be uttered about his close alliance with Brotherhood eminence Yousef al-Qaradawi, the influential sharia jurist who calls for suicide bombings against the Jewish state and terrorist attacks against American soldiers in Iraq.

This week, finally, Ted Cruz decided enough is enough. The Texas senator and Republican presidential hopeful has proposed a bill to force the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as what it actually is: a terrorist organization.

The legislation, Senator Cruz tells me, “is part of a larger effort to expose the various radical elements that are trying, both at home and abroad, to undermine our very way of life.”

A parallel focus of this effort is Iranian aggression — manifested again this week with the regime’s taking of yet another American hostage. Cruz has been a vigorous critic of the deal, negotiated by President Obama, that will make the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism a threshold nuclear power while materially supporting its terror promotion with over $100 billion in funding. The senator has also joined with colleagues in the House on a bill to apply the terrorist designation to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps — the elite regime force that orchestrated much of the terrorist insurgencies against American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, to say nothing of the 1995 bombing that killed 19 American airmen at the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia.

The menace that is Iran is clear to most Americans outside the Obama administration. The Brotherhood, though, is a “complicated case,” Cruz acknowledges. They’ve managed to “convince the Obama administration they are a secular, political entity” that can be America’s “moderate partner and assist in outreach to the Muslim world.”

The proposed legislation corrects this dangerous misimpression by sketching the Brotherhood’s history and the centrality of violent jihad to it. It details, for example, the instruction of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna that “jihad is an obligation from Allah on every Muslim and cannot be ignored or evaded.”

From its origins in the 1920s, Brotherhood doctrine has taught that jihad means “fighting the unbelievers,” “including beating them, plundering their wealth, destroying their places of worship and smashing their idols.” It has called for willing “martyrs” who understand the necessity of terrorism as “the art of death” — the route to ensuring Islam’s global dominance by convincing enemies that Islamic forces “loved death more than life” and were willing to perform any atrocities necessary to prevail.

While Ghannouchi would have us believe he has no information connecting the Egyptian Brotherhood with violence, Cruz’s bill recounts that, from its earliest days, the Egypt-based movement “established a terrorist wing, referred to as the ‘secret apparatus’, which conducted bombings and assassinations.” The savage use of force continues to this day, spearheaded by Hamas (designated as a terrorist organization since the mid-1990s), the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood (Lajnat al-Dawa al-Islamia — designated as a terrorist organization in 2001), and Brotherhood factions in Egypt that oppose the current government and torment Coptic Christians, torching scores of churches, businesses, and homes.

Indeed, in 2010, the bill relates, the Brotherhood’s “supreme guide,” Mohamed Badie, “called on Arab and Muslim regimes to confront not just Israel but also the United States,” declaring that “resistance is the only solution against the Zio-American arrogance and tyranny.” The call to jihad followed the 2008 convictions of Hamas operatives in the Holy Land Foundation case. There, the Justice Department proved that the Brotherhood was the core of an elaborate conspiracy to support and finance Hamas — a conspiracy in which leading American Islamist organizations were complicit.

Cruz could not be more right in describing the Brotherhood as “the key foundation stone for radical Sunni terrorism that has spawned both al-Qaeda and ISIS.”  In fact, as the bill describes, there is a significant history of Brotherhood underwriting of terrorism. In addition, key al-Qaeda figures have been launched by immersion in Brotherhood ideology.

It should come as no surprise, then, that where the Brotherhood is active, ISIS and al-Qaeda thrive.

This is notoriously the case in Syria, headquarters of the ISIS “caliphate,” where opponents of the Iran-backed regime are labeled “moderates” and “rebels” — a clear case of Washington straining to obscure the opposition’s significant Brotherhood and jihadist elements. Top Cruz adviser Victoria Coates points out that several years and millions of dollars have been squandered because the Obama administration “refuses to see that the Brotherhood is every bit as hostile to America as Assad is.”

Meanwhile, the Brotherhood is a prominent agitator in Libya, where al-Qaeda affiliates helped massacre Americans in Benghazi and where ISIS has established a beachhead. As Cruz’s legislation relates, Brotherhood factions are now colluding with jihadist groups fighting with great success against the failed government.

The United States will not have success in this volatile region until we have a strategy based on reality. Cruz persuasively contends that reality begins with no longer allowing the Brotherhood “to perpetuate the fiction that they are somehow reasonable and should be advising the highest levels of our government.”

To disastrous effect, the Obama administration has indulged the fantasy that American interests are served by making common cause with virulently anti-American Islamists who want Israel wiped from the map. Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee, has been an enthusiastic partner in the project to cultivate the Brotherhood. And too many Republicans have fallen prey to the illusion of a Middle East tamed by “sharia democracy” — an illusion that portrays enemies as friends and is continually surprised by the rising tide of jihadism.

Ted Cruz understands the threat and is distinguishing himself by charting a very different policy direction. It will serve him well. And it would serve the country well.

Clarion Project national security analyst Ryan Mauro debates Nezar Hamze of CAIR-Florida about whether the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

THEY LIE AND PEOPLE BELIEVE THEM!

Congress Files Legislation to Designate Muslim Brotherhood “Terrorists”

Cruz-card-Getty-640x480UTT, by John Guandolo, Nov. 5, 2015:

Both houses of Congress filed legislation Tuesday designating the Muslim Brotherhood a “Foreign Terrorist Organization.”

Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) introduced the legislation in their respective chambers.

The Free Beacon was the first to report it here.  The story was also carried by Breitbart here.

In July 2014, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN) filed a similar bill called the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014.

The Muslim Brotherhood has already been designated a terrorist organization in Bahrain, Egypt, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

UTT encourages all readers to review this bill as it serves as a good summary of the violent history and nature of the Muslim Brotherhood.  You can read a copy of it HERE.

The prominent Muslim Brotherhood groups in the United States include, but are not limited to:

Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and all it’s subsidiaries; International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT); Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR); Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Muslim Students Association (MSA); Muslim American Society (MAS); North American Islamic Trust (NAIT); Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA); Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA); Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America (AMJA); North American Imams Federation (NAIM); U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO); American Muslims for Palestine (AMP); American Muslim Alliance (AMA); Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA); Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA); Muslim Legal Fund of America; Council on Islamic Education (CIE)/Institute on Religion and Civic Values (IRCV); Holy Dove Foundation; Gulen Institute and all related schools; Turquoise Foundation; International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO); Minaret of Freedom Institute; Mosque Cares; Mosque Foundation (IL); Muslim Communities Association; Islamic Associations of Palestine (IAP); and over 80% of the nearly 2200 Islamic Centers/Mosques in all 50 states.


I encourage you to go to John Guandolo’s Research & Resources page where he has provided a wealth of information on the Global Muslim Brotherhood Jihad Movement. The very last item in the menu titled “What can I do?” is excellent.

Cruz Proposes Bill to Label Brotherhood, CAIR as Terror Orgs.


CAIR’s Founder and Executive Director Nihad Awad (R); National Communications Director and Spokesperson Ibrahim Hooper (L). Awad was present at the 1993 secret meeting of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee in Philadelphia that was wiretapped by the FBI. Participants of the meeting discussed how to support Hamas and, in the words of U.S. District Court Judge Solis “goals, strategies and American perceptions of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

‘We have to stop pretending that the Brotherhood are not responsible for the terrorism they advocate and finance,’ said Cruz.

Clarion Project, by Ryan Mauro, Nov. 4, 2015:

In what may be a seminal moment in the fight against radical Islam, presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has introduced legislation to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The impressively-detailed bill identifies three Brotherhood entities in the U.S. including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

The Muslim Brotherhood is not currently banned in the U.S. because it is not listed as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. Remarkably, its Palestinian wing—Hamas—is designated, but the group a whole is allowed to operate in the U.S. You can read my thorough rebuttal of the Brotherhood’s purported “non-violence” policy here.

The legislation reviews the Brotherhood’s terrorist history and how it has been banned by the governments of Egypt, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Syria. Egypt has released videos showing the Brotherhood’s involvement in terrorism and the Egyptian government’s website warns about the Brotherhood lobby in the United States.

The legislation quotes FBI director Robert Mueller as testifying in 2011 that “I can say at the outset that elements of the Muslim Brotherhood both here [in the U.S.] and overseas have supported terrorism. To the extent that I can provide information, I would be happy to do so in a closed session. But it would be difficult to do in an open session.”

The legislation discusses the successful prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation, a confirmed Brotherhood front that was shut down for financing Hamas. The Justice Department  labeled three U.S. groups as unindicted co-conspirators in the trial and identified them as “entities” of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s pro-Hamas operation: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT).  Read our profiles of each group’s extremism by clicking on the links.

The legislation explains that the Muslim Brotherhood set up secret “Palestine Committees” in countries around the world to covertly assist Hamas terrorist activity with “media, money and men.” The three groups mentioned are subsections of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, with ISNA and NAIT being “intimately connected with the Holy Land Foundation and its assigned task of providing financial support to Hamas,” in the words of a 2008 court ruling.

A mountain of documentation shows that CAIR’s role in the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee is media and political influence. Two of CAIR’s founders were present at a secret meeting in 1993 that was wiretapped by the FBI where they were instructed to deceive American audiences. (“War is deception,” they said at the meeting.)

The legislation states that Congress’ assessment is that the Muslim Brotherhood qualifies for designation as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the State Department. It gives the secretary of state 60 days to provide a detailed response as to whether the Brotherhood fits the criteria or not.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) is introducing the House version of the legislation.

“We have to stop pretending that the Brotherhood are not responsible for the terrorism they advocate and finance…We have to see it for what it is: a key international organization dedicated to waging violent jihad,” Cruz told the media outlet.

No other presidential candidate has explicitly called for designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

Last month, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson called on the IRS to revoke CAIR’s non-profit status for allegedly violating regulations by demanding that he end his campaign. Carson’s petition did mention CAIR’s status as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

Over the summer, GOP presidential candidate George Pataki told me he’d revoke the tax-exempt status of CAIR and other groups that support terrorist groups.

Cruz’s standing in the Republican presidential primary is increasing and he is now in fourth place nationally with 7.5% in an average of recent polls. He is in third in Iowa with 11%; sixth in New Hampshire with 7% and fourth in South Carolina with 7%.

Voters should see this as a make-or-break moment for presidential candidates and all members of Congress on national security. If a policy-maker does not understand the Muslim Brotherhood, he does not understand radical Islam.

The Clarion Project will update you every time that a presidential candidate takes a position on the issue and as members of Congress take a stand. Readers can view our factsheets on all the presidential candidates’ positions related to Islamism here.


Many people wonder why the Justice Department never followed through with trying the un-indicted co-conspirators from the Holy Land Foundation trial findings. That trial ended in 2008 when Obama was elected and Eric Holder was appointed to head the DOJ.

Pamela Geller explains:

If this goes through, it could have impact on one of the foremost Muslim Brotherhood entities in the U.S.: Hamas-CAIR. According to an internal document entered into evidence in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, Hamas-tied CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood entity, working toward “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house….”

Many of Muslim Brotherhood-tied CAIR’s leadership have been convicted of jihad-related crimes. They attack and dismantle America’s greatest freedoms through litigation jihad. They smear and destroy the voices of freedom via their well-paid hacks in the media. Over the past decades they have expended hundreds of millions of dollars to buy media and elected officials.

Some of the evidence indicting CAIR:

IPT: … [in] the trial for the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) ..the mountain of evidence presented by prosecutors demonstrates, in detail, the existence of a grand Muslim Brotherhood network in the United States dating back to the 1960s. A segment of this network, the self-designated “Palestine Committee,” sought to financially, politically, and morally support the efforts of HAMAS to destroy the “Zionist enemy.”

One exhibit – the Palestine Committee’s 1991 bylaws – reveals a web of key organizations tied to the Committee that were tasked with promoting HAMAS’ agenda, each in a particular field. Six groups were listed, the most prominent being HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), and the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR).

It is a committee which operates through the Association [IAP] for now. It is hoped that it will become an official organization for political work and its headquarters will be in Washington, Allah willing. It represents the political aspect to support the cause politically on the American front.

An organization headquartered in Washington, DC, tasked with political activism, born out of the IAP? […]

Fast forward to July 30, 1994, just weeks after the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was founded. APalestine Committee meeting agenda lists several issues to be discussed, including a review of the reports of the “working organizations.” Listed among these organizations right beside HLF, IAP, and UASR – all members of the Palestine Committee as listed in the bylaws – is the word “CAIR.”

As a result of that trial, it was understood that these groups were be indicted and prosecuted as well. But …. Obama was elected, and Eric Holder and his DoJ scuttled those prosecutions. Eric Holder refused to answer a Congressional inquiry about evidence in scuttled prosecutions of jihadist groups, CAIR, ISNA, ICNA in America’s largest terrorism financing trial .Nonetheless, the Department of Justice is sitting on “a mountain of evidence” against these subversive jihad groups.

Maybe the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror organization will get that prosecution moving again — if an American President is elected in 2016.

But will the Muslim Brotherhood’s friend in the White House move to stop this designation?

“Interfaith Outreach” Movement Led by Marxists and Jihadis

UTT, by John Guandolo, Nov. 3, 2015:

Two weeks ago the Parliament of the World’s Religions held its annual conference at the Salt Lake City Convention Center boasting “10,000 People. 80 Nations. 50 Faiths.”  Representing Islam were the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Arabia.  That alone tells a story, but the presence of Marxists/Alinskyists and Muslim Brotherhood organizations funded primarily by Saudi Arabia driving the “Interfaith Outreach” efforts in America is a stark reminder that well-intentioned people are being duped by those with a dark agenda using the guise of “togetherness” and “tolerance” to achieve nefarious ends.

The key speakers representing Islam at the Parliament of the World’s Religions were Sheikh Salah Abdullah bin Humaid, Chief Justice and Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, and Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of Hassan al Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Abdullah bin Humaid was also the head of the Fiqh Assembly of the Muslim Brotherhood’s World Muslim League in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia’s official legal system is the Sharia (Islamic Law) including the Hudud punishments – stoning for adultery, beheading for those who apostacize from Islam, cutting off hands of thieves – which directly contradicts all Western understanding of human rights.  Those Hudud punishments come directly from the Allah in the Quran.


Sheikh Saleh Abdullah bin Humaid, Chief Justice and Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia

Also featured as a speaker at the Parliament’s event was Saudi lap-dog and apologist for Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood, John L. Esposito of Georgetown University’s Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.  Bin Talal is one of the wealthiest Saudi princes in the world and funds the global jihad to the tune of millions of dollars annually.

Funny, I thought Georgetown was a Catholic University.


Tariq Ramadan, International face of the Muslim Brotherhood and grandson of the MB founder

Tariq Ramadan continues to travel the world with a smile on his face fooling Western leaders, especially religious leaders, who view him as a nice man with a peaceful message.  Yet, as one of the leading faces for the International Muslim Brotherhood, he supports Civilization Jihad to overthrow un-Islamic governments and replace them with Sharia because that is the Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal.

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and affiliates of these organizations are the key drivers of the U.S. Interfaith movement. ICNA is a part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. efforts; ISNA is a Hamas support entity; and CAIR is a Hamas organization according to evidence in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v HLF, Dallas 2008).

“Left-wing religious” organizations like the Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement (VOICE) are directly partnered with the Saul Alinsky organization the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF). The VOICE website is directly tied to IAF –  VOICE dutifully follows the guidance provided by the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Centers with which they work.


Saul Alinsky (photo 1965), Marxist Revolutionary, Author of Rules for Radicals dedicated to Lucifer

Saul Alinsky was a Marxist revolutionary whose book Rules for Radicals details how to penetrate and overthrow societies.  It was dedicated to Lucifer.  [note:  President Obama studied Alinsky’s lessons and became a “community organizer” – a term coined directly from Rules for Radicals].

Why is it so difficult for Christian leaders to understand Islam?

Islam divides the world into two parts: the Dar al Islam (the house of Islam) where Sharia is the law of the land, and the Dar al Harb (the house of war) – everywhere else.  The purpose of Islam is to eliminate the Dar al Harb until the entire world is under the Dar al Islam and Sharia.  Then there is “peace.”

The vehicle to accomplish this is called “Jihad.”

The Sharia unanimously states lying to non-Muslims is obligatory in the pursuit of obligatory goals. Jihad is obligatory, and 100% of all Islamic Law only defines jihad as “warfare against non-Muslims.”

In Islam, Mohammed is considered the “insan al kamil” or “the perfect man.” Mohammed himself said, “I have been commanded to fight the people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat (agreed upon by Al-Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Ibn `Umar).” Then Mohammed waged war against non-Muslims.

When Christians conduct “outreach” to Muslim communities, they must know the ground truth about what they are getting into, especially when they send others in to do this kind of work.

Should Saudi Arabia, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Marxist Revolutionaries drive American “Interfaith Outreach?”  Whether they should or shouldn’t is not truly the point.  Currently, they are.

In his seminal work, Strength to Love, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. admonished Christians to be tough minded and discerning in their approach to evil. “This prevalent tendency toward soft mindedness is found in man’s unbelievable gullibility…Soft mindedness often invades religion…Soft-minded persons have revised the Beatitudes to read, ‘Blessed are the pure in ignorance: for they shall see God.’”

It is time for the flock to demand their pastors speak the truth about Islam, no matter the cost.

Leading terrorist organizations were among the first to congratulate Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Islamist AK party after their surprising sweep in the November 1 election.

Hamas issued congratulations to the “Turkish people and their leadership on the success of the Turkish parliamentary elections,” according to the Palestinian Information Center, a Hamas-affiliated website,

In a press statement, Hamas categorized the Turkish elections as a victory for democracy and a “reflection of the state of stability and civilization in the capital of the Islamic caliphate.”

Turkey is reported to be the top financial sponsor of Hamas since 2012, with Erdogan arranging for the transfer of between $250-300 million anually to the terrorist organization. Turkey is also said to have trained Hamas security forces in Gaza through non-governmental groups.

The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood also hailed Turkey’s Islamist party’s victory, offering its “sincere congratulations.” Ironically, amid much documentation of voter fraud, the Brotherhood stated, “The election results and the impressive turnout, which exceeded 87%, show how the state’s strengths can be bolstered with the people’s free will and free choice when they are not subject to despotic and repressive military rule.”

Erdogan’s Islamist government was openly dismayed at the popularly-supported military intervention that toppled the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. According to the Arab newspaper Al-Arabiya, Turkey has since “become the regional hub for the Muslim Brotherhood’s international organization.”

The Islamic Front, an umbrella group funded by Saudi Arabia comprising Islamist jihadi rebels fighting Assad, also sent a letter of congratulations to Erdogan, stating, “The Turkish government and the Turkish people have played a major role in embracing the Syrians and supporting the revolution and have stood by them in the time of their trouble.

“Turkey withstood a lot of internal and external pressure to back off from this unique position but it continued to implement this moral policy. We hope to have good relations – like brothers – between the people of Syria and Turley in the future after Assad and his regime will fall.”

Eight groups signed the Islamic Front’s letter including the Salafist movement Ahrar ash-Sham al Islamiya, the Damascus-based Jaysh al-Islam (the Army of Islam), Filaq al Rahman and Ansar al-Sham.

The well wishes came amid serious accusations of voter fraud which saw the AK party regain its majority in the parliament, taking the country back to single-party rule.

Yesterday’s elections followed a June vote that resulted in a hung parliament. In that election, the AK party, which had garnered only 41 percent of the vote, was not able to form a coalition in order to govern.

Meanwhile, according to the Emirates News Agency, Erdoğan issued words of support for Islamic State (ISIS) jihadis who claimed to have shot down a Russian passenger plane in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, killing all 224 people aboard.

“How can I condemn the Islamic State for shooting down a Russian plane as its passengers were returning from a happy vacation in a time when our co-religionists in Syria are bombed by Putin’s fighter jets?” Erogan is quoted as saying. “It is the natural outcome of Moscow’s actions in Syria and the support for Assad.”

U.S. Institute for Peace Hosts High Level Global Muslim Brother… Again

455725694Center for Security Policy, by Kyle Shideler, Oct. 27, 2015:

The United States Institute for Peace (USIP), a federal institution created and funded by Congress, will host Global Muslim Brotherhood big-wig, and leader of the Brotherhood-linked Ennahda (Renaissance) Party of Tunisia Rachid Ghannouchi on Wednesday, October 29th.  Ghannouchi has been reported to hold the position of deputy head of the International Muslim Brotherhood organization, a group which answers directly to the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide. Ghannouchi also served as the assistant Secretary General of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), run by Muslim Brotherhood chief jurist Yusuf Al Qaradawi. Under Qaradawi the IUMS issued fatwas in support of Hamas suicide bombings, and the targeting of Americans in Iraq during the Iraq War, and on called for jihad against secular leaders in Syria, Egypt and Libya. IUMS is considered a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

During it’s time in power in Tunisia, Ghannouchi’s “moderate” Ennahda party was implicated by the Tunisian opposition for orchestrating the murder of secular leftist politicians.

Thanks in part to a public backlash against the assassinations, Ennahda is out of power, and Ghannouchi has plenty of time to visit with Washington D.C. allies. The USIP also hosted Ghannouchi on September 29th, 2014, and February 24th, 2014.

Typically, Ghannouchi’s presentations at USIP are more moderated than the 2001 statement he gave Al Jazeera praising the mothers of Palestinian suicide bombers:

“I would like to send my blessings to the mothers of those youth, those men who succeeded in creating a new balance of power…I bless the mothers who planted in the blessed land of Palestine the amazing seeds of these youths, who taught the international system and the Israel (sic) arrogance, supported by the US, an important lesson. The Palestinian woman, mother of the Shahids (martyrs), is a martyr herself, and she has created a new model of woman.”

Ghannouchi’s close association with the USIP was likely facilitated at least in part by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID), a pro-Islamist think tank with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Early CSID board members included known Muslim Brotherhood members Jamal Barzinji and Taha Al-Alwani, who played a role in founding many early Muslim Brotherhood organizations. Both are also linked to the so-called “Safa Group” and the International Institute of Islamic Thought, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood think tank suspected of supporting Hamas and other terror groups. CSID members, like former CSID Board Chairman Abdulaziz Sachedina also have IIIT ties.

The USIP is well aware of CSID’s  long and troubled history, having been notified of the problems by former USIP board member Daniel Pipes as far back as 2004, when Pipes notified the group that it had invited as a speaker Kamran Bokhari. Bokhari was tied to British group Al-Muhajiroun, an organization banned in 2010, and linked to about half of all British Jihadist terror attacks in the past twenty years. Al-Muhajiroun co-founder Abu Hamza al-Masri was recently sentenced to life in prison for attempting to establish a terrorist training camp in Oregon. While Bokhari claims to have left Al-Muhajiroun before Pipe’s intervention, he has other additional questionable ties, including serving as the treasurer for the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS), one of the oldest MB-linked organizations in the United States.

USIP’s other federally funded run-ins with jihad supporters included funding a study on Hamas’s moderation, co-authored by Osama Abu-Irshaid, board member of the American Muslims for Palestine, and the former editor of Al-Zaytounah, the paper of the Islamic Association for Palestine. IAP was an organization of the Palestine Committee of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, whose purpose in the United States’ is to support Hamas ideologically and financially.

USIP’s unrelenting support for Ghannouchi is a reflection of the wider support that exists for Muslim Brotherhood organizations more generally among a large swathe of public, semi-public, and private sector diplomacy practitioners.

South Africa Hosts Hamas

949702009Center for Security Policy, by Kyle Shideler, Oct. 23, 2015:

South Africa’s ruling party The African National Congress (ANC) is currently playing host to foreign terrorist organization Hamas, including leaders Khaled Mashaal and Mousa Abu Marzook. Mashaal met personally with South African president Jacob Zuma, exchanged gifts and signed a letter of intent for future cooperation. The ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe said the ANC would be “starting a relationship with Hamas” and that the two would work together in “all struggles for freedom of Palestine.”

South Africa’s support for the terrorist organization Hamas does not come as a particular shock. South Africa has grown increasingly close to a number of rogue actors, including Iran, Sudan, and Hamas.

South Africa’s ever-closer alignment with Hamas has been a long time coming, facilitated by local South African Muslim Brotherhood-linked organizations. Specifically, the two organizations that are sponsoring a rally on October 21st Rally, to welcome Hamas, the Muslim Judicial Council and the Al Quds Foundation-South Africa.

The Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) is one of the leading South African Islamic organization established in 1945, but opening its first formal office in 1982. It describes itself as “a Muslim Judiciary” for South Africa, and manages everything from Halal inspection of food to issuing Islamic legal rulings, or fatwas.

It is also the South African branch of the global Hamas fundraising network known asThe Union of the Good. This gives the MJC the same role in South Africa as was played by the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) in the United States. In 2008, HLF and its founders were convicted for their role in supporting material support for Hamas.

Additionally, the president of the MJC serves as a member of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS). Muslim Brotherhood chief jurist Yusuf Al Qaradawi, whose scholarly authority provides Islamic legal support for Hamas’s activities, including suicide bombings, heads both the UoG and the IUMS.  As the Center noted in its occasional paper on Qaradawi and the IUMS:

Founded in Dublin, Ireland, the International Union of Muslim Scholars bills itself as an organization open to Islamic scholars of all sects and schools of Islamic law. Despite this, IUMS maintains close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Brotherhood’s Palestinian wing Hamas, and numerous individuals known or suspected of Brotherhood ties make up its membership. According to the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch-a repository of information on Muslim Brotherhood organizations and members- Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas operatives from around the world have served with IUMS.

The Al Quds International Foundation-South Africa, is the South African branch of the Al Quds International Foundation, a specially designated terrorist entity, and its South African chapter is closely-linked to the MJC. The Treasury Department noted:

Hamas’s leadership runs all of the foundation’s affairs through Hamas members who serve on the Board of Trustees, the Board of Directors, and other administrative committees. All documents, plans, budgets, and projects of Al-Quds are drafted by Hamas officials.  Several senior Hamas officials, including Specially Designated Global Terrorists Musa Abu-Marzuq and Usama Hamdan, served on Al-Quds’ Board of Trustees.

The General Secretary of the Al Quds International Foundation is Dr. Mohammed Akram al-Adlouni. Akram is the author of the notorious Explanatory Memorandumdocument, a Muslim Brotherhood planning document entered into evidence by prosecutors in the HLF trial. In the Memorandum Akram describes a long-term Muslim Brotherhood plan as a “civilization-jihadist” process to undermine “Western Civilization from within.”

South Africa’s descent into what is essentially state support for terrorism, did not happen overnight.  According to a leaked document which purports to be a South African Intelligence report on Hamas in South Africa, Hamas, together with international Muslim Brotherhood organizations, and South African Brotherhood organizations like the South African Muslim Students Associations (established in 1968), have long been at work proselytizing, recruiting and indoctrinating South African Muslims. According to the report the surveillance of these activities was cancelled when it revealed Islamic terrorist groups, including Hamas, were meeting on South African soil with politically connected South African Muslims at an Islamic Conference in Laudium in 1996. Similarly in March 2010, the Obama administration, thanks to political sympathy to MB organizations, halted further prosecutions of Hamas figures in the United States. MB-linked organizations have aggressively sought to eliminate surveillance of their activities, through political pressure and lawsuits.

While South Africa’s relationship with Israel has always been complex, with South Africa honoring an unrepentant jihadist organization, we see the culmination of a successful Brotherhood effort to influence policy through building alliances with other anti-Western parties.

It would be a mistake to assume that what has taken place in South Africa couldn’t likewise occur in other countries where the Brotherhood is hard at work with a “civilization-jihadist” effort to forge a political environment that not only tolerates the Brotherhood’s jihad against Israel, but openly participates in it.

New Wave of Palestinian Terrorism Forces East Jerusalem Closure


Truth Revolt, by Tiffany Gabbay, Oct. 13, 2015:

Moral equivalence has been likened to cancer, and with good cause. It eats away at societies, eroding the individual’s moral compass and warping his or her perception of reality to such a degree that evildoers become “heroes.” It is what enables the international community to silently (or even quite vocally) condone the savagery being committed against Israelis each and every day. It is what allows the mainstream media to mislead readers and misreport facts in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, thus providing terrorists with their own public relations vehicle, free of charge.

As the death toll in the latest terrorist-double-feature climbs, Israeli officials are seriously considering shuttering East Jerusalem in an effort to manage what some are fearing is the start of a third Intifada. In the last day alone, shooting and knife-attacks claimed the lives of three innocent Israelis and seriously injured at least 17 others. The incidents involved stabbings, opening fire on innocent civilians, and plowing a car into a crowd of pedestrians. While it is difficult to keep track of each and every attack carried out against Israelis by Palestinian terrorists, particularly in these last two weeks, Arutz Sheva attempts to provide a breakdown of the last 24 hours:

In the first incident, a 60-year-old man was killed and 15 others wounded, eight seriously, in a shooting attack on a Number 78 bus traveling along Gallows Street in Armon Hanatziv. Magen David Adom and United Hatzalah paramedics at the scene described chaos and multiple severe casualties. A second, critically wounded victim succumbed to his wounds nearly two hours later, bringing the death toll in that attack up to two. The attack involved two terrorists, one of whom was shot dead by police. The second terrorist was shot and wounded, and has been taken into custody. Early investigations indicate that the terrorists intended to hijack the bus, along with its passengers. It is not yet clear what they intended to do with the vehicle or their hostages afterwards.

Minutes after that attack, a car and knife attack took place on Malchei Yisrael street. The terrorist in that attack reportedly plowed his car into a bus stop and then emerged brandishing a knife, stabbing several passersby. There are conflicted reports about the fate of the terrorist. Some say that he was injured and taken into police custody, others that he was killed at the scene. He has been identified as Jerusalem resident and Bezeq telephone company employee Alaa Abu Jamal. Reports suggest he carried out the attack using his company car.

Now, police have shuttered all roads into Jerusalem and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has called for an emergency cabinet meeting, according to Arutz Sheva.

What will it take for the international community to “see what it sees” and hold these barbarians accountable, to stop vilifying Israel? All rhetorical questions, to be sure, as history has proven time and again, “the world doesn’t care about dead Jews.”

Four Terror Stabbing Attacks in One Day in Jerusalem: Is ‘ISIS Intifada’ Here?

Egyptians-burn-Israeli-flag-Cairo-2011-620x413Purposely inflamed Islamist rage is spiking in Israel again. This time, the model for Palestinian terror tactics is ISIS.

PJ Media, by Jonathan Spyer, Oct. 7, 2015:

The first rains that follow the High Holy Days have come to Jerusalem. As always, a blessed relief. But no relief seems imminent from the renewed tensions that have descended on the city. A series of brutal murders and attempted murders of Israeli Jewish civilians by Palestinian Arab Muslims have taken place over the last two weeks. These have occurred against a backdrop of violent demonstrations and protests in Jerusalem, the West Bank, and increasingly among Israel’s Arab citizens.

For five years, Israel has lived a strange and contradictory reality. The Arab world is in an advanced state of meltdown. A number of formerly strong states have effectively ceased to exist. Syria, Iraq, Yemen are today merely names for areas in which sectarian militias battle one another. These states have collapsed along their ethnic and sectarian fault lines. The results have been bloody and are not yet over.

Yet on the edge of all this, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea has remained quiet. An anomaly. This is the only place of non-Muslim sovereignty between Europe and India. The existence of a sovereign area successfully defended by the Jews — a group traditionally despised and ridiculed by Muslims — has long been a source of rage and humiliation for both Sunni and Shia.

Why then, at a time when religious and sectarian identity was everywhere breaking through the thin membrane of “national” and “state” loyalty, had this area of non-Muslim sovereignty been spared major strife?

Four reasons: Firstly, the Jewish state, despite its small size, enjoyed a vast military and technological advantage over its neighbors/enemies. Any Islamist force wishing to make war on Israel needed to take into account that the likely result would be devastation for its own side, set against meager fruits in terms of damage inflicted on the hated enemy. Two powerful Islamist militias, Hamas and Hizballah, have been largely deterred in recent years through this equation.

Secondly, Palestinian Sunni Arabs watch the progress of events in the region, and this in itself acts as a deterrent against acting against Israel. Those of them who have Israeli citizenship benefit enormously from the Western levels of social organization and liberty in Israel. Those in the West Bank are themselves able to live lives of a level of tranquility and comfort quite unimaginable to inhabitants of, say, Iraq or Syria. This gives pause for thought.

Thirdly, the Second Intifada was not that long ago. The armed structures that prosecuted it on behalf of the Palestinians were largely broken and are only now re-building themselves. The population remembers the chaos and suffering and again has cause to think twice before supporting a return to those days.

Fourthly, the Palestinian Authority leadership understands that it will not be the beneficiary of a turn toward the street. Its leadership and their families live well and peacefully in Ramallah. The IDF keeps them safe from regional and local demons. The political beneficiaries of the Second Intifada were Hamas.

This time around, the forces that will emerge on the street are likely to be tied to or inspired by the example of the Sunni jihadis currently flourishing in Syria and Iraq.

These are all good reasons why Israel and the PA-ruled areas have been quiet over the last half-decade.  Nevertheless, that quiet has undergone a tremor in recent weeks. A Third Intifada is not quite here yet, but the momentum toward it is building.

What are the dynamics that are leading to this, which may yet prove stronger than the factors listed above?

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:// 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.

Hamas Chief Holds Press Conference At Four Seasons Hotel

Four Seasons Doha / YouTube

Four Seasons Doha / YouTube

Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo, Sep. 10, 2015:

The Four Seasons hotel chain has come under fire for hosting a press conference this week in Doha, Qatar, by a top Hamas official who called for armed resistance “in all its forms” against Israel, according to a copy of the invitation for the event and video of the press conference.

Khaled Meshaal, a senior Hamas leader who is designated by the United States as a terrorist, rallied against Israel during remarks at the Four Seasons in Doha, raising questions about whether the prominent hotel chain could be in violation of U.S. laws barring material support to terrorist groups.

Izat Arashaq, a Senior Hamas official, publicized the event earlier this week on Twitter, sending out an invitation to the event in Arabic.

The tweet included “an invitation to attend and to cover the press conference of the brother Khaled Meshaal , vice president of the politburo for the Islamic Resistance movement (Hamas),” according to an independent translation.

The notice touts the event as being held in a ballroom at “the Four Seasons Hotel, Doha.”

The Four Seasons hotel chain is jointly owned by Kingdom Holding Company, which is headed by Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal of the Saudi royal family, and the Cascade Investment Firm, which is owned by Bill Gates.

Meshaal—who spoke in front of the image of a gunman during the event—urged the Palestinians to take up  “resistance in all its forms” without “limits or restriction,” according to a video recording.

Meshaal, who resides in Qatar, has been reported to frequent the Four Seasons in Doha. He also has been provided shelter by the Qatari government, which is one of Hamas’s top backers.

Meshaal’s public appearance at the Four Seasons has led to questions about whether the hotel chain is in violation of laws prohibiting material support to any U.S.-designated terrorist group.

“First of all it is remarkable to me that the U.S. continues to consider Qatar an ally when Hamas operates openly on Qatari soil,” said Jonathan Schanzer, a former terrorism finance analyst at the Department of the Treasury.

“The announcement of this press conference was brazen. The spokesman of Hamas seemed to have really no qualms about sharing the location of this press conference of a terrorist organization on social media,” said Schanzer, the vice president of research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

“He was blasting it far and wide,” Schanzer said. “We’re talking about a major hotel chain that is now providing material support to a terrorist organization, according to the letter of American law.”

When asked via email to comment on Meshaal’s appearance at the hotel, a spokesperson for the Four Seasons in Doha said that “we are unable to respond to any enquiries about people who may or may not be staying at the hotel.”

The spokesperson did not respond when asked whether the hotel endorsed the public Hamas press conference.

An email requesting comment from the Kingdom Holding Company also was not returned. The Cascade Investment Firm did not respond to a request for comment on Meshaal’s use of the hotel by press time.

Qatar has repeatedly come under fire from U.S. lawmakers and others for its longtime backing of Hamas.

Qatar has pledged at least $400 million to support Hamas in recent years and continues to shelter top officials such as Meshaal.

At the same time, Qatar enjoys close ties with the United States and has benefited from billions of dollars in arms deals.

“Qatar plays host to leaders of a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, but under current U.S. law it is not a designated State Sponsor of Terrorism,” said David Weinberg, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies who researches Gulf State monarchs. “Given that Israeli security forces have identified three separate Hamas officials based out of Qatar by name as directing terror cells in the West Bank, U.S. policy needs to keep pace with worrying realities overseas.”

“Perhaps the SST architecture needs to be updated by Congress so that U.S. allies hosting operatives of terrorist groups are subject to new penalties,” he said.

Hewitt trips up Trump on foreign policy

Hugh HewittWashington Examiner, By AL WEAVER, Sep. 3, 2015:

With the second GOP debate only two weeks away, Donald Trump may need to do some cramming on foreign policy to catch up to his peers.

Trump admitted in a Thursday interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt that he does not know some of the nuts and bolts issues on the world stage, particularly the names of terror leaders and other players in the Middle East. He also didn’t know the difference between Hamas and Hezbollah.

From the outset, Hewitt, who is set to ask questions at the debate on Sept. 16, quizzed the GOP front-runner on a series of issues pertaining to the Middle East. He asked if Trump knew about Gen. Qasem Soleimani, a major general in the Iranian Army.

“Yes,” Trump said with some doubt in his voice. “Go ahead, give me a little — go ahead, tell me.”

When Hewitt explained that Soleimani is the head of the Quds Force, which he likened to the U.S. Navy SEALs, Trump began talking about the Kurdish forces in Turkey.

“I think the Kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated by us…” Trump said before Hewitt corrected him. The real estate mogul explained that he heard the name wrong.

“Is he the gentleman that was going back and forth with Russia and meeting with [Vladimir] Putin? I read something — that seems to be, also, where he’s at. He’s going back and forth meeting with other countries, etc. etc.,” Trump asked. Hewitt responded affirmatively.

“Not good. Not good for us,” Trump said. “And what it shows is a total lack of respect, I mean that the other countries would even be entertaining him, and they’re entertaining him big league. Big league.”

Hewitt went on to ask Trump if he knew the “players” in the Middle East “without a scorecard” after rattling off four high-level players from the region such as Hassan Nasrallah, secretary general of Hezbollah, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State.

“No,” Trump responded. “You know, I’ll tell you, honestly, I think by the time we get to office, they’ll all be changed. They’ll be all gone. I knew you were going to ask me things like this and there’s no reason because, 1.) I will hopefully find Gen. Douglas McArthur in the pack. I will find whoever it is that I’ll find and … but they’re all changing.”

“Those are like history questions. ‘Do you know this one, do you know that one,'” Trump said. “As far as the individual players, of course I don’t know them. I’ve never met them. I haven’t been in a position to meet them. If they’re still there, which is unlikely in many cases — but if they’re still there, I will know them better than I know you.”

Trump went on to tell the host that he was asking “gotcha questions” about the Middle Eastern leaders, adding that by the time he becomes commander in chief, “I will be so good at the military, your head will spin.”

Near the end of the 20-minute segment, Hewitt told Trump that he disagreed with the assertion that he was asking “gotcha” questions. The host said that at the debate on Sept. 16, he may ask the candidates about the leaders of Hezbollah, al-Nusra and Hamas. Does Trump think those are gotcha questions?

“Yes, I do. I totally do,” Trump said to a mystified Hewitt. “I think it’s ridiculous. I’m a delegator. I find great people. I find absolutely great people and I’ll find them in our armed services, and I find absolutely great people.”

“When you start throwing around names of people and where they live and, you know, give me their address — I think it’s ridiculous,” Trump said. “By the way, the names you just mentioned, they probably won’t even be there in six months or a year … First day in office, or before then — the day after the election, I’ll know more about it than you will ever know. I can tell you that.”

“Last question: So the difference between Hezbollah and Hamas does not matter to you yet, but it will?” Hewitt asked.

“It will when it’s appropriate. I will know more about it than you know and believe me, it won’t take me long,” Trump said. “And if you ask any of these candidates, nobody’s going to be able to give you an answer. I mean, there may be one that’s studied it because they’re expecting a fresh question from you. But believe me, it won’t matter. I will know far more than you know within 24 hours after I get the job.”

This isn’t the first time a 2016 Republican presidential candidate has struggled with foreign policy details on Hewitt’s show. Back in May, Ben Carson made repeated missteps in an interview with Hewitt, which led to the host asking the famed neurosurgeon if he “read this stuff?”

The Fiction of Political Islam

Gatestone Institute, by Bassam Tawil, September 2, 2015:

  • To this day, the Obama administration mourns the fall of Egypt’s Islamist President Morsi, and turns a cold shoulder to forward-looking President el-Sisi, who is (sometimes) trying to take Egypt into the 21st century and extricate Egypt from its economic and societal crisis.
  • Muslim Brotherhood terrorism against the Egyptian regime is a perfect example of how this “political movement” is in reality a terrorist movement whose objective is the violent overthrow of Egypt’s government. The White House, fully aware of the facts, continues hosting senior Muslim Brotherhood officials and shows them respect during consultations about the American Islamic community and U.S. policy in the Middle East.
  • Events in Sinai prove there is no such thing as “political Islam.” There is a radical Islamist leadership that represents itself to the gullible West as “moderate,” preaches violence from mosques, cloaks itself in ideological-religious tradition, and employs Islamist terrorists to attack civilians and Egyptian government targets.
  • It is hard not to conclude, looking at President Obama’s record (ignoring protesters of 2009 in Iran; “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone”; the dictatorial way the Iran deal is bypassing the democratic process) that in his heart-of-hearts, he is far more committed to supporting extremist Islamist regimes — whether the mullahs of Iran or the Muslim Brotherhood — than to supporting democracy, individual freedoms or human rights.
  • The Europeans are more aware of the situation but woke up too late. As hundreds of thousands of migrants from Muslim lands continue to pour over Europe’s open borders, there is little doubt that radical Islam is poised to take over the West. Islamic communities and terrorist cells continue to mushroom throughout the cities of Europe.
  • The world is beginning to understand that the catastrophes of the Middle East have nothing to do with the resolution of the Palestinian issue but are caused by the innate homicidal tendencies of the Arab rulers and the regional Islamist terrorist organizations.

Hamas is in trouble. Its relations with Egypt are going from bad to worse, and the influx of money, primarily from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the mosques in the Western world — where charity (zakat) was collected to finance anti-Israel terrorism — has dwindled to almost nothing. So has the flow of arms and explosives from Iran, Libya, Sudan and Lebanon. The resulted is the weakening of Hamas rule in the Gaza Strip, making it ever more difficult for Hamas to continue its ongoing subversion of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank and its non-stop attempts to overthrow President Mahmoud Abbas to take over the West Bank and establish there the sort of Islamic emirate it established in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas’s military buildup was halted when the President Mohamed Morsi’s radical Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt was toppled and General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi was elected President. Morsi, it will be recalled, strangely received support from President Obama until he was ousted. The Obama administration supported him despite Morsi enabling for the flow of money and arms to Hamas in Gaza to continue unhampered through the tunnels in the Sinai Peninsula. The weapons were used not only to attack Israel, but also to sabotage peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians and, indirectly, to attack the Palestinian Authority.

The Islamist terrorism festivities ended when President el-Sisi clamped down on the Islamists in Egypt, destroyed the tunnels and sealed Egypt’s border with Gaza. Since el-Sisi has been president of Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood rule has ended and the tunnels have been destroyed. It is hard to fathom why, to this day, the Obama administration mourns the fall of the Islamist Morsi administration and turns a cold shoulder to forward-looking el-Sisi, who is (sometimes) trying to take Egypt into the 21st century and extricate Egypt from its economic and societal crisis.

Since el-Sisi has been in power, money and arms no longer flow through the tunnels into the Gaza Strip; instead they began to flow in the opposite direction, from the Gaza Strip into Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Since the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliated terrorist organizations, Hamas among them, have not accepted defeat, there has been an increase in terrorist attacks targeting the Egyptian regime both inside the country proper and in the Sinai Peninsula. The terrorist campaign receives ongoing support from the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military-terrorist wing, and the ISIS-affiliated Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis. Both continuously attack the Egyptian police and army in the Sinai Peninsula, murder Egyptian officials and target Egyptian institutions.

The endless terrorist campaign in Egypt has proven yet again that the claim of a political Islam, separate from the terrorist organizations, is simply a lie. Muslim Brotherhood terrorism against the Egyptian regime is a perfect example of how the “political movement” tries to represent itself as dealing only with the da’wah [proselytizing], while in reality it is a terrorist movement whose objective is the violent overthrow of el-Sisi’s administration. The White House, fully aware of the facts, continues hosting senior Muslim Brotherhood officials and shows them respect during consultations about the American Islamic community and U.S. policy in the Middle East.

While being hosted by the State Department on a visit to Washington in January 2015, Muslim Brotherhood judge Waleed Sharaby (left) flashed the organization’s four-finger “Rabia” sign. At right, ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi (from the Muslim Brotherhood) displays the Rabia sign.

The events in the Sinai Peninsula prove there is no such thing as “political Islam.” There is a radical Islamist leadership that represents itself to the gullible West as “moderate,” preaches violence from the mosques, cloaks itself in ideological-religious tradition, and employs a hard core of Islamist terrorists to carry out attacks on civilians and Egyptian administration targets.

In the meantime, the real victims are the Egyptians. The Muslim Brotherhood’s terrorism has paralyzed Egypt’s tourist industry, as foreigners fear to visit Egypt’s antiquities. And now there are terrorist threats to the New Suez Canal, a project initiated and carried out under the leadership of General Sisi to turn both banks of the two canals into an international logistics, commercial and industrial area.

The Islamists’ plans are clear. First, they want to leverage violence, murder and countless Egyptian army casualties into establishing an autonomous terrorist enclave in the Sinai Peninsula. Then they will try to overthrow the Egyptian government and reinstate an Islamist Muslim Brotherhood regime headed by Morsi. That is exactly what their offshoot, Hamas, did in the Gaza Strip when it liquidated Palestinian Authority officials and established an Islamic emirate. The writing on the wall is still illegible as far as the U.S. government is concerned. Or else the Obama administration is still in the thrall of extremist Islam and its Muslim Brotherhood leaders. The two main ones are Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has just called new elections so that he can try again to acquire enough seats in parliament to amend Turkey’s constitution to award himself a one-man Sultanate, an absolute dictatorship-for-life to go along with his new palace. The other is Mohamed Morsi, whom Obama apparently is still backing.

It is hard not to conclude, looking at the U.S. president’s record (ignoring the protesters of 2009 in Iran; “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone” and the dictatorial way the Iran deal has been short-circuited to bypass the democratic process) that in his heart-of-hearts, he is far more committed to supporting extremist Islamist regimes — whether the mullahs of Iran or the Muslim Brotherhood — than to supporting democracy, individual freedoms or human rights.

The Europeans are more aware of the situation but unfortunately woke up too late. As hundreds of thousands of migrants from Muslim lands continue to pour over Europe’s open borders, there is little doubt that radical Islam is poised to take over the West. Islamic communities and terrorist cells continue to mushroom and gather strength throughout the cities of Europe.
