Investigating Islam

The United West, by Steve Kirby, September 19, 2018:

Folks who are concerned about Islam often ask what they can do.

Here is what you can do:

1) Educate yourselves so that you are able educate others about the reality of Islam;

2) Step out of your comfort zone, look for opportunities to talk about Islam with family, friends, and religious and secular leaders; and

3) Go to events where presentations on Islam are being made and ask the hard questions, based on the information you have gained from authoritative Islamic sources.  When you go to these events, take along some like-minded, knowledgeable friends so you won’t feel all alone.  Hold Muslims and non-Muslims accountable for accurately presenting Islam.

Here is how you can get started.  I spent the latter half of my 31 ½ years in law enforcement as a detective investigating white collar crimes and public corruption.  For each investigation I put together a case file of information.  Below is a link to a case file you can create so that you can investigate Islam yourself, learn about the reality of Islam and then take your case file with you when you talk about Islam and go to Islam-related events:

Facebook Bans Frontpage Editor Jamie Glazov on 9/11 – For Posting on How to Prevent Another 9/11

Front Page Magazine, by Jamie Glazov, September 12, 2018:

[Editors’ note: To best understand why Facebook would ban Jamie Glazov on 9/11 for his article on how to best prevent more 9/11s, pre-order Jamie’s new book, Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us: HERE. The book illustrates how the Jihadist Psychopath has successfully built his totalitarian plantation — on which many in the West are now enslaved and dutifully following his orders. Jamie outlines the frameworks of this tyrannical plantation and how those who are trapped on it, and yearn for freedom, can best escape.]

Facebook’s Unholy Alliance masters are, without doubt, accelerating their totalitarian suffocation of free thought and expression. it is no surprise, therefore, that Frontpage’s editor, and host of The Glazov Gang, was suspended from Facebook for 30 days yesterday, on September 11, after posting his article, 9 Steps to Successfully Counter Jihad. Glazov believed that the article was more relevant and urgent than ever due to the skyrocketing Jihadist stabbings in Europe — and to the 17th anniversary of 9/11 that was approaching the next day.

But it appears that daring to give suggestions on how our civilization can stop Jihadist attacks and another 9/11 is against Facebook’s ‘community standards’. Frontpage’s editor posted a screenshot of the reprimand that Facebook sent him and then tweeted about it. (See Below).

The article itself outlined nine ways in which Jihad can best be countered. The steps include:

1. Label the Enemy and Make a Threat Assessment, 3. Stop “Partnering” With Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups, and 5. Launch Our Own Counter-propaganda Campaign.”

Glazov’s advice also involves the promotion of supporting moderate Muslims — a move that is, clearly, horrifying to Facebook’s masters and therefore also violates their “community standards.”

No doubt, Glazov’s consistent campaigning on behalf of Muslim women and girls in his efforts to protect them from FGMHonor Killings and other Sharia barbarities, has gained him the anger and hatred of Facebook’s guardians — who are clearly on the side of the Sharia enforcers and oppressors of Muslim women and girls.

Glazov is no stranger to censorship on social media — especially of the insane variety. In April earlier this year, he was suspended from Facebook for posting screenshots of a Muslim’s threat to him on the platform.

Then, in May, his Twitter account was temporarily suspended and he was forced to delete tweets he posted which directly quoted Islamic religious texts. His account was suspended for violating Twitter’s rules relating to “hateful conduct.”

It is “hateful conduct”, apparently, to reference what Islamic texts themselves say. Indeed,  Frontpage’s editor had simply referred to Sahih Bukhari’s texts discussing Mohammed’s marriage to Aisha when she was six years old (7.62.88) and to Qur’anic Suras that mandate the Hijab for women (24:31; 33:59) and sanction sexual slavery (4:3; 33:50).

Glazov has also attempted to write to Facebook to ask what it is specifically that violates Facebook’s “community standards” when a person gives advice on how to best defend American lives from Jihad. But when he tries to send his inquiry, a Facebook announcement appears telling him that his “request” cannot be processed. It appears, therefore, that when you are languishing in the Facebook Gulag, not only are you imprisoned without understanding why, but there is also no way and no one to ask about your fate.

Islamic blasphemy laws are here — and coming to a neighborhood near you.

We ask everyone to get involved. Please go to Facebook and click on the blue question (“?”) mark on the top-right corner of your Homepage. Then select “Report a Problem” at the very bottom of the box and go to the “General Feedback” section and write in to request that Jamie Glazov’s ban be lifted. You can also do that on Facebook HERE and HERE. Also protest on Twitter: @facebook and @fbnewsroom — and directly to Mark Zuckerberg@finkd. And please spread the word and report this outrage to all the media you can.

And make sure to FOLLOW Jamie Glazov on Facebook as well as on Twitter to strengthen his social media strength in the face of this censorship: @JamieGlazov.

Thank you so much!

Americans Will Win This War In the Shadows of the Heroes of Flight 93

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, September 10, 2018:

On 9/11/2001, the U.S. Government failed to protect America, and Islamic jihadis flew planes into two World Trade Center buildings in New York (American Airlines flight 11 and United Airlines flight 175) and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia (American Airlines flight 77) killing nearly 3,000 people.

     

But on United Airlines flight 93, average American citizens demonstrated leadership, courage, and initiative and gave the last full measure of devotion to this nation by ensuring that airplane would not be used to do the kind of devastation we saw in New York and Arlington.

And so it is today.  Citizens will win or lose this war at the local level.

It is 2018.  Contrary to U.S. warfighting doctrine, the United States government has still not identified the “enemy” we face in this war.  You cannot hit the bullseye if there is no target.

Since 9/11, 159 Americans have been killed and 502 wounded in 71 jihadi attacks perpetrated by muslims in 24 different states inside America.

Texas leads the nations with eight (8) separate attacks.

Fifteen (15) of the nineteen (19) Islamic jihadis who attacked America on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia.  Evidence exists revealing Saudi intelligence operatives conducted a “dry run” for the 9/11 attacks one year prior to 9/11/01, and the Saudi Ambassador to the United States – Prince Bandar – and his wife passed money to an account used to support 9/11 hijackers.

Yet, the United States government calls Saudi Arabia an “ally” in the “War on Terror.”

Pakistani Intelligence helped move Al Qaeda personnel on the ground in Pakistan and Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks, and Osama bin Laden lived for years in Pakistan less than a mile from the Pakistani Military Academy.

Yet, the United States government calls Pakistan and “ally” in the “War on Terror.”

U.S. military generals, State Department officials, National Security advisors, and directors of U.S. intelligence agencies continue to rely upon Islamic “coalition partners” and Islamic advisors to tell them how to fight the war.

We LOST the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and it is not because our military soldiers, Marines, sailors, and airmen failed to do their jobs – it is because our generals/admirals and civilian leaders failed and continue to fail to Understand the Threat and identify the enemy.

Al Qaeda, the Islamic State, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, Hizbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Abu Sayef, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hizb u Tahrir, Jamaat e Islami, Tabligi Jamaat, and all Islamic nations on the planet under the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) clearly state they intend to establish an Islamic State (caliphate) under sharia (Islamic law) through all means necessary.

The enemy very clearly makes their intentions known.  The enemy is not the problem.  Our leaders are the problem.

U.S. leadership has failed and continues to fail America and Americans are dead because of it – nearly 700 killed or wounded since 9/11 here at home.

President Trump stands virtually alone in this administration as someone who has some semblance of an understanding Islam is the problem and sharia is the threat doctrine of our enemy.

Because of all of this, this war will be won or lost at the local level.

Here is what citizens must do if America is to win this war:

  1. Know and understand sharia.  Speak truth boldly.
  2. Organize citizens who understand the threat into small teams to focus their efforts on educating and activating:  police; prosecutors and judges; legislators; pastors/rabbis; school officials; business leaders (chamber of commerce); and local politicians.
  3. Give each team simple focused tasks.
  4. POLICE:  Give a copy of the book Raising a Jihadi Generation and the UTT Episode 1 DVD to your local police chief and sheriff.  Encourage your local police chief and sheriff to bring the UTT’s 3-day “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Network” course to their jurisdiction.  This is the only program of its kind in the U.S. which gives police tools to map out, investigate and prosecute the jihadi network in your community.
  5. PROSECUTORS/JUDGES:  Share UTT information with prosecutors and judges you know, and encourage them to host a UTT training.  If able, show them examples of the jihadi network in their city/county and how they operate – ie they (suit-wearing jihadis) portray themselves as helpful and friendly yet still have the same objectives as Al Qaeda.
  6. LEGISLATORS:  Work with patriots involved with legislative efforts at your state house to increase the strength of state Racketeering statutes and increase the list of predicate crimes to include “Terrorism.”  Work to make “Conspiring to overthrow the state constitution” a state felony in your state.
  7. PASTORS/RABBIS:  Educate local church leaders, including pastors, about the threat of Islam and encourage them to cease all “Interfaith Outreach” as it is today, since all U.S. interfaith outreach efforts are driven by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood via the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
  8. SCHOOL OFFICIALS:  Firmly ensure Islam is not being taught in your local schools, nor are children compelled to openly state the shahada (Islamic statement of faith).  Work with organizations like TruthinTextbooks.com to ensure social studies and history books are actually teaching historical facts not revisionist history.  Ensure the school board, principles, PTA leaders and others are aware that the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a front for the terrorist group Hamas, and has no place in any discussions or activities dealing with American school children.  See “CAIR is Hamas” document here.  DO teach children about America’s founding principles, specifically, “The law of nature and nature’s God” and what that legally means and how it relates to the foundation of U.S. law and government.
  9. BUSINESS LEADERS:  Identify key patriotic business leaders in the community, and educate them on the threat (once you understand it!).  Have team members ready to publicly call for boycotts and participate in public protests outside businesses who support jihadi organizations domestically or overseas.  Work to promote courageous men and women who understand the threat to be a part of your local chamber of commerce.
  10. LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS:  Mayors, city council members, and other local officials who are open-minded and able to hear and receive facts and truth should be engaged and taught about the threat of the Islamic Movement in the United States and your local area.  These officials should be be encouraged to know this threat and act accordingly in the day to day disposition of their duties as community leaders.  They should know they will be held accountable, and the team working with them should consistently be giving them positive or negative feedback based on their actions.

In all of this, local leaders should know your teams will stand with them through all of this if they do the right thing and speak truth.  There does not need to be a public proclamation by all these officials that they understand the threat.  Many will get much more done by quietly shutting the doors to the jihadis that have been open to them for so long.

The most important thing is the know the threat first before you ever decide to act.  When you act you must have a reasonable understanding of how the jihadis will respond so you will be prepared to counter-act them accordingly.

On 9/11/01, American citizens on United Airlines flight 93 took charge and won the day by ensuring a greater tragedy did not take place.  They gave their lives for all of us, as have thousands of American warriors on battlefields across the world.

Will you stand up and do your duty now?

Out Tuesday: Robert Spencer’s blow against Wilsonian utopianism

I get most of my books on Kindle now but this one is special. I ordered the hardcover.

Jihad Watch, by Robert Spencer, August 6, 2018:

This Tuesday my new book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS will be officially released. The preorders will be fulfilled, and those of you who have preordered the book (for which I thank you) should have the book soon.

This is my eighteenth book launch week, and while some of those weeks have been higher profile, I don’t think I’ve ever been as happy about a book launch, except maybe the first one, as I am about this one. I’ve written all my books because I saw that there needed to be a book about a particular issue that had not been covered, but never more so than this time. This is the first, and only, chronological narrative history of the entire 1,400-year phenomenon of jihad in the English language.

Why this book, and why now?

Because right now, and maybe not for very long, we have a chance to roll back at least some of the failed policies that have been based on false assumptions about Islam and jihad: the idea that poverty causes terrorism, the idea that gestures of kindness and generosity will be met with reciprocal good will, the idea that the vast majority of Muslims reject and abhor jihad violence and are on the front lines of opposing and resisting it, and much more.

The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS is a blow against the program of utopian nation building, which is based on the idea that Islam could be whatever Islamic apologists, or the American policymakers who were listening to them, wanted it to be.

Instead, this book tells you what Islam and jihad always have been, and likely will be for the foreseeable future, since there has been no reformation in Islam that rejects the literal understanding of the Qur’an, and no such reformation is on the horizon.

This book could keep us from killing more Americans in the future in a futile effort to try to establish democracy in the Muslim world.

MEF Launches The “Counter-Islamism Grid”

Middle East Forum, June  7, 2018:

PHILADELPHIA – June 7, 2018 – The Middle East Forum is taking the fight against Islamism to the local level, with the launch of its Counter-Islamism Grid (CIG) to be headed by Kyle Shideler.

As the saying goes, ‘all news is local.’ But in the local context, Islamists prosper in obscurity. To meet this challenge, CIG will coordinate research, writing and activism by a network of researcher-activist associates across North America, to oppose Islamist ideas, individuals and organizations. The project will be spun-off as a separate entity in the future.

Kyle Shideler will begin as Director of CIG on July 2. Mr. Shideler specializes on Islamist groups operating in the United States, having spent over a decade researching and writing on their history, doctrine, and impact. He has briefed senior U.S. Government personnel, Members of Congress, and law enforcement on this topic, as well as testified before the Canadian House of Commons.

Mr. Shideler has written for The Federalist, The Hill, FoxNews.com, the Claremont Review of Books, and contributed to Saudi Arabia and the Global Islamic Terrorist Network (Palgrave, 2011).

Mr. Shideler previously worked at the Center for Security Policy, the Endowment for Middle East Truth, and StandWithUs. He is a graduate of Boston University and was a Lincoln Fellow with the Claremont Institute.

“Currently, counter-Islamist organizations focus on national and international networks,” notes Mr. Shideler. “CIG will be the eyes and ears on the neighborhood level, from Lewiston, Maine, to Jersey City to Minneapolis to Lodi, California.”

“Islamism is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution,” He continued. “The two cannot co-exist on equal footing. Lawful Islamists utilize legitimate tactics but to negate the existing order. We seek to research, expose, and oppose this threat.”

The Forum will soon post job openings for researcher-activists in locales across North America.


The Middle East Forum promotes American interests in the Middle East and protects the West from Middle Eastern threats.

Antifa, CAIR and the Southern Poverty Law Center work together to silence speech

Brannon Howse is the organizer of the events shutdown by anti-free speech domestic terrorists. http://www.worldviewweekend.com/tv/video/marxist-islamists-groups-shut-down-worldview-weekend-events-how-we-are-losing-our-freedom

Refugee Resettlement Watch, by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2018:

You haven’t seen it on cable news, or on the pages of the Washington Post or the New York Times, but last weekend brazen domestic terrorists working on behalf of Islamists shut down speaking events they disapproved of in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

This extremist tactic of intimidating speaking venues, such as hotels, isn’t new, but it is on the upswing in the age of Trump. And, I think that is because the Hard Left has really lost it, their frustration and anger at losing the White House must have pushed them psychologically over the edge. They are very dangerous people.

Our friend James Simpson has the full story here at The Daily Caller.

Here are a few snips:

Antifa groups used information from the Southern Poverty Law Center to successfully shut down four conferences on the threat of Islam scheduled in Wisconsin and Minnesota last weekend.

The hotels slated for the events were flooded with threatening calls, and the organizers voluntarily canceled one of the events following numerous warnings that it would not be safe. A fifth conference in Des Moines, Iowa carried on in defiance, despite leftists showing up to disrupt the proceedings.

The conferences were hosted by Worldview Weekend, a conservative Christian organization that produces radio and TV shows and sponsors events nationwide. The SPLC posted the locations for these venues, after which Antifa groups urged their members through social media to attend events and swamp the venues with threatening calls and messages.

[….]

The conferences sought to expose how leftists supported by George Soros, the John Templeton Foundation and other donors are intimidating America into silence by labeling anyone who exposes them as “racists,” “Islamophobes” and “white supremacists.” An event last fall featuring this author and DHS whistleblower Philip Haney was canceled by the venue following a similar campaign from Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) operatives.

On that last line, see my post Wednesday on the slick Taneeza Islam (former CAIR-MN civil rights activist) who practiced these same tactics in South Dakota.

Simpson explains what happened and then wraps with this:

Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim and now Christian apologist who heads the Truth In Love project, was slated to speak at a number of the canceled events. He reacted strongly in a video about the cancellations posted on Saturday:

“Who shut us down folks? The Islamo-Marxist-Fascist oppressors in this nation, the same groups that we’ve been traveling around this nation warning you about…. How did that happen? It started with CAIR… the front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. Then they’ve joined with the Southern Poverty Law Center… Then they got Antifa involved… and we know their M.O. – they’re domestic terrorists… If you think we are living in a free nation any more… that this is the land of the free and home of the brave, we better wake up soon. Religious liberty, the right of assembly, the right of our speech, is gone. This is the M.O. now. This is the tactic they are using to shut us down.”

Watch Pastor Shahram Hadian, here:

Simpson continues….

Howse broadcast an hour-long live special Sunday night to describe what happened and the issues that would have been covered in these events.

He said he is considering legal action, among other options, and that he will also be releasing a movie this fall recounting this weekend’s events and many others he has witnessed over the last 12 months.

“The things that are happening represent an existential threat to our rights as Americans and our very way of life,” he said.

Read all of it here.

The greatest threat!

Everyone must make sure to spread this news far and wide through whatever means are available to you because the mainstream media won’t do it!  The threat is real and it is the biggest threat facing America today—the silencing of our voices.

And, I’m going to nag all of you to find avenues of speech for yourselves!

Write blogs, facebook pages, open twitter and gab accounts, create e-mail lists to friends and family, write letters to editors, and if necessary speak in your churches and other civic groups because the more of you willing to speak, the harder it will be for them to silence us all.

 

Marxists & Jihadis Assault Truth in Des Moines & America’s Heartland

When hotels in Green Bay and Milwaukee cancelled Worldview Weekend events – which included Understanding the Threat’s President John Guandolo – the entire war for liberty and the soul of our Republic was on full display in America’s heartland.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a corrupt Marxist organization working daily with Hamas in the United States doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), sent the message out.

That message was dutifully received by the SPLC’s terrorists at Antifa who then launched a campaign to intimidate and threaten venues hosting Worldview Weekend’s events.

Worldview Weekend (WVW) sponsored a 5 city/5 day speaking tour on national security matters in Des Moines (IA), La Crosse (WI), Green Bay (WI), Bloomington (MN), and Milwaukee (WI).

According to Worldview Weekend’s founder Brannon Howse, there were over 1000 people registered in Milwaukee and over 1500 registered in Minnesota.

Worldview Weekend hosts UTT’s TV and radio programs at WVWTV.com and WorldviewRadio.com, respectively.

Understanding the Threat published a video on our YouTube channel detailing key events of the tour’s cancellation.  That video can be seen HERE.

Worldview Weekend’s Brannon Howse published a video interview with Chris Gaubatz about the events and the tour cancellation which can be seen HERE.

Several Marxists and a few sharia-adherent muslims attended the event in Des Moines, including Iowa State Representative Ako Abdul-Samad, a sharia-adherent muslim (jihadi) and the Chairman of the jihadi organization American Muslim Alliance, and Abshir Omar, a candidate for Des Moines City Council who previously served as the Director for Hamas in Iowa doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Iowa State Legislator Ako Abdul-Samad with Hamas representatives (dba CAIR)

WHO TV, Des Moines Channel 13 news was present at the event and interviewed Brannon Howse, UTT’s John Guandolo, and Representative Abdul-Samad.  Oddly, the news station posted the raw interview of Abdul-Samad on their website but not the raw interviews of Brannon Howse or John Guandolo.

Abdul-Samad was previously praised by Hamas (CAIR).

The WHO TV piece on the event as well as the raw interview of Abdul-Samad can be seen HERE.

After John Guandolo spoke, Abshir Omar approached him and the two men had a lengthy discussion which Omar describes as “cordial.”  In the discussion, Mr. Guandolo was able to get Abshir Omar to admit that all of Islam requires apostates (those who leave Islam) and homosexuals to be killed.

Omar is a Somali muslim refugee and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America who was supported by CAIR in his unsuccessful 2016 bid for Des Moines City Council.

Today, UTT published a new video with John Guandolo rebutting untrue/defamatory comments by Iowa Representative Abdul-Samad, and discussing the command in Islam for muslims to lie to non-muslims and speak pleasantly and in a “refined manner” to them while doing it.

Understanding the Threat asks our dedicated followers to do 4 things:

  1. Share this story with as many people as you can.
  2. Share this story with Laura Ingraham @IngrahamAngle because she publicly asked for examples of free speech being silenced in the United States, and this is a GREAT example.
  3. Support Brannon Howse at Worldview Weekend in whatever way you are able.  Brannon has demonstrated courage and tenacity in this battle for the truth.  http://www.WorldviewWeekend.com.
