Daily Reality, Islamic Doctrine & 1400 Years of History Tell Us There is ONE Version of Islam

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, October 3, 2018:

Headlines from around the world demonstrate Islamic leaders and sharia-adherent muslims want to live under sharia, want everyone else to live under sharia, believe those who leave Islam must be killed, believe raping non-muslims is lawful, believe warfare against non-muslims is mandatory until the world is under Islamic rule, believe mosques are centers of the Islamic government where sharia is adjudicated and weapons are stored, and believe Islam must dominate, subjugate, and eradicate.

Here are a few stories from around the world in the LAST 3 days:

  • Grandson of 1972 Munich Massacre architect (terrorist) who is running for U.S. Congress in California called a “Security Risk”
  • Man who applied for refugee status in Poland numerous times expelled for ties to terrorist organizations
  • Canada Revenue Agency fines Islamic Society of North America over concerns it aided armed jihadis
  • Sharia Law, Islamic Jihadis Rule Greece’s Notorious Migrant Camp
  • Jihadi on trial in Australia says muslims must wage jihad, martyrdom is the goal, and sharia is the law
  • French police raid a Shi’ite Muslim mosque and arrest three of its leaders for illegal weapons possession
  • France accuses Iranian Intelligence of working inside France to support jihadi attacks
  • 3 muslims from the West Bank indicted for plotting terrorism (jihad) against Israel
  • Brandeis University in Massachusetts to fund projects countering “Islamophobia”
  • Muslims slaughter 17 Christians in Nigeria
  • Muslims in Greek Refugee Camp openly state “If you are not Muslim I can rape you”
  • Spanish Police take down jihadi recruiting operation in 17 prisons
  • 70 muslims in rape gang in Telford, England raped a 13 year old girl 6 years ago – only one was recently convicted
  • Islamic scholar says Female Genital Mutilation is recommended for muslim girls/females
  • Several muslim “refugees” caught/arrested at the Oktoberfest in Munich for sexually assaulting women
  • 13 dead, over 30 injured in martyrdom operation (bombing) by muslim in Afghanistan

Strange how so many muslims are getting their “version” of Islam “wrong” in the exact same way.  Maybe they aren’t getting it wrong.

Just like the most prominent Islamic scholars from Al Azhar who believe in the same “version” of Islam as Al Qaeda and the Islamic State scholars.

Strange how Abdullah Azzam, who created Al Qaeda with Osama bin Laden, and Al Qaeda’s Blind Sheikh (Omar Abdel Rahman) believed in the same “version” of Islam too.  Yet, they were revered Islamic scholars.

Strange how today we can find the books and DVD’s of Al Qaeda leader Anwar al Awlaqi in nearly every mosque book store in America teaching the same “version” of Islam, yet the United States killed him in a drone strike in 2011.

There is 1 Islam and 1 sharia

The following is lawful under sharia:

  • Killing those who leave Islam
  • Killing those who commit adultery
  • Killing homosexuals
  • Waging war against/Killing non-muslims who do not convert or submit to sharia
  • Lying to non-muslims
  • Raping women who do not cover themselves
  • Female Genital Mutilation
  • A 60 year old man marrying a 7 year old girl
  • Parents killing their children or grand-children

Creating a domestic counter-terrorism strategy in the United States, a military war-plan to be victorious over the Islamic threat, and a foreign policy to support that war-plan, must begin with knowing and understanding that Islam is at war with the United States and, therefore, we are at war.

Islam is the threat.  Sharia is the doctrine.

The first war America fought after the American Revolution was against muslims from the Islamic States (Barbary States) waging war against the United States by seizing U.S. ships and capturing our citizens.

President Thomas Jefferson went to war against the Islamic States because he understood they were the enemy of liberty and an enemy of the United States.  Twenty years earlier he and John Adams heard it from the Ambassador to Britain from Tripoli who told them muslims had the right to wage war against non-muslims because the Koran says so.

When the United States decides to read the enemy’s war doctrine (sharia), commit to a plan for victory based on a professional analysis of the enemy’s doctrine (sharia), and stop taking advice from muslims, we will win this war.

One Year After Worst Shooting in U.S. History Police Have “No Motive” & Suspect is Walking Free

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, September 27, 2018:

On October 1, 2017, 58 people were killed and 851 wounded in the worst shooting attack in American history.  The Islamic State said they were going to attack Las Vegas and claimed responsibility for the attack after it happened.

The FBI and the Las Vegas Sheriff still claim they have “no idea” what the motive was for this attack.

Facts on the Table

The Islamic State publicly stated Las Vegas was a target, then claimed credit for the attack, explaining the man founded dead inside his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, Stephen Paddock, converted to Islam a few months prior and was a “soldier of the caliphate.”

UTT’s analysis of the facts as we know them today reveal:  Paddock conducted pre-operational surveillance on several targets before settling on Las Vegas; Paddock initiated the assault prior to his planned time because his preparations were interrupted by a security guard, making it more likely more shooters were going to join him since there were many guns and two shooting portals in the two separate rooms on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay rented by Paddock; the Las Vegas Sheriff revealed Paddock left no suicide note, and all other evidence points to the fact Paddock intended to escape after the attack; and because the Islamic State has never claimed an attack in the West in the manner they did for this attack – and claimed it 4 times – when they were not responsible.

Then there is the curious case of Australian Brian Hodge, a left-wing activist who currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

By his own admission, Hodge was inside one of the two rooms rented by Paddock, and on the 32nd floor during the shooting.  Hodge told reporters he hid in bushes outside the Mandalay Bay for “three and a half hours” when in fact the shooting was over in approximately 20 minutes and Hodge was ten miles away shortly after the shooting.

Hodge ended up being at a motel in Las Vegas (Knotty Pine) with three individuals from an area in Mexico with high Islamic State activity.  Coincidence?

Then from October 2-4, Hodge traveled to New Mexico and spent time in a restaurant owned by a Turk who is on a Watchlist and hails from an area in Turkey with high Islamic State activity.  Oddly, the restaurant owner has gone silent on his social media since a few days after the attack.

Posing for what appears to be a “trophy” photo, Brian Hodge stands outside the Mandalay Bay after the worst shooting in U.S. history in Las Vegas, Nevada

Notably, several people have now written about Brian Hodge being a suspect in this attack, yet Hodge has made no effort to clear his name or set the record straight.

Hodge has also not responded to UTT’s requests for an interview.

Since the worst shooting attack in American history, there have been no Congressional hearings, the FBI and the Las Vegas Sheriff’s Office never looked as the Islamic State as a possible suspect in this attack, and over 900 Americans are dead/wounded without even a hint authorities have any desire to get these questions answered.

Worst case scenario – this was the first joint Islamic State/Antifa attack in the United States.

What can you do?  Ensure your sheriff’s office and local police department understand the Islamic threat, specifically, the Muslim Brotherhood network, their modus operandi, and sharia (their doctrine), because knowing this information radically changes how police do their jobs on a day to day basis regarding attacks such as this.

17 Years After 9/11, Al-Qaeda Boasts ‘Strongest Fighting Force in Its Existence

RAMI AL-SAYED/AFP/Getty Images

Breitbart, by John Hayward, September 11, 2018:

Seventeen years after it perpetrated the September 11 terrorist attack, al-Qaeda is arguably stronger and better-positioned than ever.

The consensus on al-Qaeda’s strength among terrorism experts is a sobering rebuke to the notion that al-Qaeda was dealt a mortal wound when its founder Osama bin Laden was killed in May 2011.

Al-Qaeda’s health is measured by three vital statistics: its military strength, its ideological strength, and the size of its sphere of influence. All three of those metrics were unfortunately boosted as an inevitable side effect of the Western war against al-Qaeda’s chief rival, the Islamic State. Al-Qaeda picked up recruits, forged new alliances, and won its ideological argument with its rabid ISIS offshoot as the Islamic State “caliphate” was destroyed.

Al-Qaeda made sure it was perfectly positioned to pick up the pieces after the ISIS caliphate exploded. It exploited the dramatic discrediting of the Islamic State, which advocated seizing and holding vast amounts of territory to forge an apocalyptic Islamist nation-state that could be targeted and destroyed by mighty Western military forces – not to mention various othermuch more well-established Islamist nation-states threatened by the Islamic State’s existence, such as Iran.

An assessment at the Sydney Morning Herald on Tuesday found al-Qaeda boasting the “largest fighting force in its existence.”

“Estimates say it may have more than 20,000 militants in Syria and Yemen alone. It boasts affiliates across North Africa, the Levant (including Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon) and parts of Asia, and it remains strong around the Afghanistan-Pakistan border,” the SMH reported.

Al-Qaeda has done fairly well for itself in Syria, amassing weapons and trained fighters through its network of allies, exploiting both the war against the Islamic State and the bloody chaos of the horrendous Syrian civil war.

At the peak of its power in 2015, al-Qaeda was able to instantly dismantle and disarm the absurdly small “moderate” rebel force President Barack Obama sent into Syria with American training and weapons. Times are harder for al-Qaeda franchisees in Syria these days, but the international organization got what it wanted from the conflict and continues ruthlessly exploiting the ugly truth that it was always one of the few enemies of dictator Bashar Assad’s regime with significant battlefield power. Assad and his allies routinely accuse the West of aiding and abetting terrorists by prolonging the insurrection and dismiss all enemies of the regime as “terrorists.”

Al-Qaeda is very strong in Yemen and Libya – strong enough in Yemen to convince the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iran-backed Houthi insurgency to pay off al-Qaeda fighters instead of engaging them in combat. Here again, al-Qaeda has cunningly positioned itself as the lesser of two evils, and perhaps even an ally of the United States and its coalition against a more pressing military threat.

“Elements of the U.S. military are clearly aware that much of what the U.S. is doing in Yemen is aiding AQAP and there is much angst about that. However, supporting the UAE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against what the U.S. views as Iranian expansionism takes priority over battling AQAP and even stabilizing Yemen,” Jamestown Foundation fellow Michael Horton told the Associated Press in August.

The AP noted that al-Qaeda forces that struck deals with the advancing Saudi coalition have been allowed to fall back with “weapons, equipment, and wads of looted cash.” Some al-Qaeda fighters have been actively recruited by the anti-Houthi operation, according to the AP’s sources. Such arrangements risk providing al-Qaeda with even more valuable military training, and possibly hardware, not to mention mixing subversive elements into Arab military units.

In Libya, al-Qaeda swiftly exploited the chaos unleashed by President Barack Obama’s invasion and the fall of dictator Moammar Qaddafi – who was, despite his many, many flaws, a critic of Osama bin Laden and paranoid about the threat jihadi groups like al-Qaeda posed to his power.

The U.S. military has been working with the internationally-recognized government of Libya – which controls only a portion of the country – to conduct airstrikes against al-Qaeda targets.

The Islamist contagion from Libya has been spreading across Africa, prompting an American response described as a “shadow war” largely invisible to the public until U.S. troops were killed in a terrorist ambush in Niger.

Al-Qaeda’s splinter group Jamaat Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin (literally, “The Group to Support Islam and Muslims”) is one of the major regional threats. It was officially designated a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. government last week. The huge new American drone base under construction in Niger will be capable of launching strikes into Libya against al-Qaeda and other jihadi groups.

Al-Qaeda retains a dangerous presence in Iraq, thanks in part to a political strategy similar to the one it followed in Yemen and Libya, presenting itself to locals and government officials as an alternative to ISIS and Iran-backed Shiite militia. Constant ISIS threats to reorganize in Syria and Iraq help to drag the spotlight away from al-Qaeda’s stealthier activities. It is not easy to tell where ISIS ends and al-Qaeda begins in Iraq, which was the scene of the al-Qaeda schism that created the Islamic State.

The al-Qaeda network even has tentacles in Iran, where some of the group’s leaders fled after the Taliban lost control of Afghanistan. Questions about how much help the Iranian government gave al-Qaeda or whether Tehran actively cooperates with the terrorist network are hotly debated.

Al-Qaeda’s strategic alliances have proven more useful and durable than the Islamic State’s frenzied efforts to pressure jihadi groups into pledging allegiance. The most infamous of these allies, the Taliban of Afghanistan, have endured 17 years of U.S. and allied military operations and currently control at least a quarter of the country.

The Taliban is very close to achieving one of its major objectives: direct talks with the U.S. government. It is difficult to imagine a negotiated peace with the Taliban that would not infuse the Afghan constitution with their ideology and put Taliban members in top government and military positions, which are both highly desirable outcomes for al-Qaeda. A United Nations panel confirmed in June that al-Qaeda remains closely allied with the Taliban. The Afghan group’s stubborn refusal to abandon al-Qaeda under decades of immense Western military pressure greatly enhances the prestige of the international terrorist organization.

Al-Qaeda’s allies in Somalia, al-Shabaab, are such an active threat that American forces have been obliged to bomb them as well. Over twenty U.S. airstrikes have been conducted against al-Shabaab in Somalia this year, a significant increase in operational tempo since the end of the Obama administration. Somalia is one of the few African theaters where the Trump administration openly plans to maintain a U.S. military presence.

Al-Qaeda’s ideological threat is the most difficult aspect of the group’s persistence for Western analysts and policymakers to discuss. Simply put, the past 17 years have conclusively disproved the old bromide that al-Qaeda and its allies were a “tiny minority of extremists” that “hijacked” the religion of Islam. We may hope they remain a minority and they certainly are extreme, but they definitely are not “tiny.”

The Taliban’s persistence is an instructive example of the strength of al-Qaeda’s religious ideology. The Taliban have been fighting a brutal war of attrition against Afghan security forces and American troops for almost two decades. They usually suffer at least as many casualties as they inflict, but they have no difficulty recruiting fresh troops. It is likewise difficult to point to an area where al-Qaeda is having trouble replenishing its manpower.

In other theaters, al-Qaeda appears to be enjoying considerable success at recruiting former members of the Islamic State and its allied organizations, themselves persistent despite defeats in Syria and Iraq that would seem to demolish their claim to preside over a caliphate.

There is little evidence that jihadi groups activated by bin Laden’s network are growing discouraged and giving up the fight; instead, they look for better leadership when their old gang is beaten. Al-Qaeda’s growing influence in Asia is grim evidence that their appeal extends beyond Arabs. Conventional wisdom in the West now holds that “nation-building” is sheer folly in any theater where al-Qaeda or its offshoots have a strong presence – which is another way of conceding that its jihad ideology is too popular to extinguish by defeating its armed forces or killing its leaders, and it is too strong for moderate Muslim political leaders to overwhelm.

If there is any good news in this grim picture of al-Qaeda’s strength in 2018, it is that Osama bin Laden’s terrorist network has endured and prospered largely by abandoning flashy big-ticket terrorist attacks like 9/11. Analysts routinely credit al-Qaeda’s relative subtlety, its interest in developing political strength, and long-term alliances instead of drawing attention to itself as ISIS does for its survival.

The question is how long al-Qaeda will be content to fight its adversaries in the Middle East and Asia instead of slaughtering American and European civilians. The United Nations warned in August that al-Qaeda, under the leadership of Osama bin Laden’s vengeful son Hamza, could become a more active global threat as ISIS fades and its fighters migrate back to their parent organization. Al-Qaeda does hold territory in places like Libya and Yemen, giving it the kind of money, recruiting appeal, and striking power that made ISIS so dangerous.

An Arab News assessment on Monday of the strategic threat posed by al-Qaeda pointed out that al-Qaeda could be waiting for some of the Islamic State’s key allies in Africa, Egypt, and Pakistan to switch allegiance back to them before making big global moves:

It is obvious that Al-Qaeda has been largely left alone in recent years, as global and regional powers vented their anger against Daesh, which was undoubtedly a bigger and more immediate threat. But the situation could change if Al-Qaeda is able to undertake new attacks, particularly against the US and its Western allies. That it has failed to do so until now was primarily due to its declining power and failure to attract more recruits

Al-Qaeda’s strength and sophistication are undeniable. They are playing a much longer game than the Islamic State, and they have learned to play it carefully – but eventually, they will make more aggressive moves, because they still believe making war against the West is necessary.

Seventeen years after 9/11, America endures. So does the enemy.

Police Captains son sentenced for planned Jihadi attack at a University

Understanding the Threat, by Johhn Guandolo, September 6, 2018:

The son of a Boston police captain Alexander Ciccolo, who also went by the name Ali Al Amriki was sentenced yesterday to 20 years in prison.  Alexander Ciccolo father turned him to the FBI.  According to the Federal governments Affidavit and Memorandum, Alexander Ciccolo  was charged with possessing a firearm after previously being convicted of a crime punishable by a term of imprisonment exceeding one year in violation of 18 U.S.C. ‘ 922(g)(1), which offense constitutes a felony that involves the possession of a firearm. See 18 U.S.C. ‘ 3142(f)(1)(E). Alexander Ciccolo possessed four firearms which he ordered, including two rifles with large ammunition magazines, to use during his plan to kill in the name of Allah.

Before his arrest  told a friend that he believed the “faith is under attack” and that he is “not afraid to die for the cause.” Alexander Ciccolo Facebook profile, under the name “Ali Al Amriki,” contained information indicating he wanted to commit “martyrdom for the sake of Islam”.

On October 27, 2014, Ali Al Amriki’s  (Alexander Ciccolo) Facebook page posted an image that appeared to be a dead American soldier that included the following statement by Ali Al Amriki, “Thank you Islamic State! Now we won’t have to deal with these kafir back in America.” “Kafir” means “non-believers” of Islam. The information posted on the Facebook page also showed that Alexander Ciccolo wanted to fight for the Islamic State.

On June 24, 2015,  Alexander Ciccolo  met with a FBI informant and discussed plans to travel to another state to conduct terrorist attacks on civilians, members of the U.S. military and law enforcement personnel.  Ciccolo planned on attacking two different bars and a police station, and gave the locations. Ciccolo explained he planned to use improvised explosive devices during the attack to include pressure cooker bombs. During another conversation with the informant Ciccolo celebrated the June 26, 2015 Jihadi attack at a beachside resort in Tunisia in which one person used firearms and grenades to kill 38 people.  Alexander Ciccolo expressed  he needed four AK-47s, two sniper rifles, four handguns, and gelignite (a type of dynamite). Alexander Ciccolo also stated that he wanted to conduct an attack at a State University using assault rifles and explosives with the attack concentrated in the college dorms and cafeteria while broadcasting live on the internet.

Alexander Ciccolo told the informant he planned  to rob a gun store to obtain the weapons and travel out of state to purchase fireworks in order to obtain the black powder needed for the attacks and planned to purchase pressure cookers to use as improvised explosive devices.

On June 30, 2015 Alexander Ciccolo met with the FBI informant and explained that he had changed his plans from targeting a police station to targeting a university because there were many more people at the university and a “Very sinful and has a crowd.” Alexander Ciccolo said he wanted to protect Muslim students, saying they would  be permitted to help, sit tight or leave. Ciccolo said that he wanted to do it before Ramadan was over, and no later than July 31, 2015. Ciccolo told the FBI informant “We win or we die.”  A few days later after Alexander Ciccolo bought a pressure cooker he intended to use to build an explosive devise he sent a message, “Allahu Akbar!!!… I got the pressure cookers today. Alhamdulillah.”

On July 4, 2015 Alexander Ciccolo was arrested, waived his Miranda rights and spoke to FBI Special Agents.  He refused to talk about the guns with which he was arrested but he reaffirmed his support for the Islamic state. When arrested the first person he was able to attack was a nurse who he stabbed multiple times in the head with a pen.

On September 5, 2018 Alexander Ciccolo,  (Ali Al Amriki), was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni to 20 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised release after pleading guilty to one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, one count of attempting to use weapons of mass destruction, one count of being a convicted person in possession of firearms, and one count of assaulting a nurse during a jail intake process by use of a deadly weapon causing bodily injury.

We shouldn’t be surprised. Alexander Ciccolo converted to Islam and is doing what the enemy doctrine mandates.  100% of Islamic sharia mandates warfare against non-muslims until the world is under Islamic rule (sharia). This is why he had a plan for the muslim students to be given a chance to fight or run to safety.  The fact of Alexander Ciccolo a police captains son  committing war against non-muslims  shouldn’t surprise anyone. In sharia (which all Muslims must follow) it comes from the Koran and the example of what Mohammad said and did (sunnah).

“Fight and slay the unbeliever wherever you find them, capture and besiege them,  and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush (strategem of war).” (Koran 9:5)

Mohammad said:  “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify there is no god but Allah and Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah.”  (Hadith reported by Bukhari and Muslim)

There is no such thing as a “different kind” of Sharia which does not mandate jihad until the world is under the rule of the sharia, and there is no other legal definition of “Jihad” in Sharia other than “warfare against non-Muslims.” Jihad is warfare against non-muslims.  A police Captain (who was one of the first to respond during the 2013 Boston bombing) has a son who tried to commit Jihad during Ramadan at a very public place to create mass casualties.  Let that sink in.

This is Islam. This is Sharia. Sharia kills. The war is here.

Congressional Muslim Brotherhood Hearing Reveals Danger of Not Speaking Truth About Islam

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, July 12, 2018:

This is, as UTT has made clear in the past, an important line of operation in this war and one which should be pursued with great vigor.

However, statements made during the hearing raise serious concerns of a continued gross lack of understanding of the threat by drawing broad distinctions between Muslim Brotherhood doctrine and “true Islam.”

Since the “true Islam” referred to during the hearings does not exist, and in fact the “version” of Islam articulated by the International Muslim Brotherhood – as well as Al Qaeda, ISIS, and others – is core Islamic doctrine, the difference between the two is a fantasy and is no place to try to build strategies for victory.

Testimonies Raising Concern

The testimony of Dr. Hillel Fradkin from the Hudson Institute agreed the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal is to establish an Islamic State, yet placed the root of this idea at the feet of the Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al Banna, and did not acknowledge Muslim Brotherhood doctrine is core Islamic doctrine.

Fradkin went on to say that “This approach entailed the gradual transformation of society to Brotherhood principles before the seizure of political power, in Egypt and elsewhere.”  Dr. Fradkin attributed this “gradualist” approach as an invention of al Banna.

In reality this “approach” comes from core Islamic doctrine.  It is progressive revelation, and simply reaffirms the exact same methods used by Islam’s perfect man, Islam’s prophet Mohammad, to implement Islam in society.

In his testimony,  Jonathan Schanzer from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies stated, “Many Muslim Brotherhood branches subject their members to rigid indoctrination processes and vet their
members for their commitment to the organization’s ultimate goal, which is to empower the Brotherhood’s politicized and deeply intolerant interpretation of Islam.”

The question must be asked, since this comment was made in testimony on Capital Hill, how is the “Brotherhood’s politicized and deeply intolerant interpretation of Islam” different from what 12 year old muslims are taught in U.S. Islamic schools?  How does it differ from what the highest authority in Islamic jurisprudence – Al Azhar – teaches Islamic scholars?

It does not.

Mr. Schanzer went on to say, “Factions of the Brotherhood without a history of violence or terrorism finance do not warrant scrutiny,” and recommended the U.S. should “Designate the violent actors while keeping a close eye on non-violent ones.”

Since the global Islamic Movement’s primary  road to victory is in the non-violent realm, to focus primarily on the violence – as the enemy wants us to do – is to lose the war.

Zuhdi Jasser, a muslim doctor from Arizona identified himself as a “devout muslim” in his testimony.

In his statement, Dr. Jasser said, “Neither Islam nor Muslims are monolithic and should not be treated as such by anyone.”

The problem with this statement is two-fold.  First, it is untrue.  The thing that binds the Islamic world together is the obligation, under penalty of death, for muslims to obey sharia and work to impose it on the world.  There is no “version” of Islam that does not require this.

Secondly, the statement that Islam is not monolithic and very hard to understand, is something UTT teaches its students to repel with the truth.  It is on UTT’s radar because it has been a talking point for the Islamic Movement for over 20 years.

Dr. Jasser also asserted, “For us (muslims) it is a very personal mission to leave our American Muslim children a legacy that their faith is based in the unalienable right to liberty and to teach them that the principles that founded America do not contradict their faith but strengthen it.”

In fact, there is no book of Islamic law or any Islamic school text used in the United States – or elsewhere for that matter – which teaches muslims to adhere to America’s founding principles.  In fact, the most widely used text book in U.S. Islamic schools, What Islam is All About, reads:  “The duty of muslim citizens is to be loyal to the Islamic State.”

In the end, Dr. Jasser recommends the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood gradually beginning with a few Islamic nations overseas, but NOT in the United States.

The testimony of Ambassador Daniel Benjamin denied the clarity of the International Muslim Brotherhood’s objectives and their controlling doctrine (sharia) when he testified, “There is no singular, monolithic Muslim Brotherhood…there is no central administration linking these disparate groups.  In character and matters of doctrine, they vary greatly…Does the Muslim Brotherhood constitute a global threat?  Here too, I would answer that it does not.  Most of the groups that are said to be Muslim Brotherhood affiliates or franchises support democracy and abjure violence.”

Setting aside the fact the leadership of the International Muslim Brotherhood hosts regular meetings to discuss strategy and assess their progress, these comments leave listeners/readers with the idea that different levels of sharia implementation in different Islamic nations by the Muslim Brotherhood is synonymous with a lack of unified doctrine or modus operandi, which is demonstrably untrue.

To say the MB rejects violence is to be wrong.  See their by-laws here.

The Brotherhood calls for the implementation of sharia on the planet.

It is all about sharia.  That is what links the entire global Islamic Movement together.

Notable are the comments by Congressman Stephen Lynch of Massachusetts during the hearing which reveal a continued lack of understanding of the Islamic threat by major components of the U.S. government.  After listing examples of violence advocated and perpetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, Mr. Lynch said, in part, “Meanwhile, democratically elected political parties that also fall within the Muslims Brotherhood umbrella represent a significant voting block in the Parliaments and government coalitions of some of our key counterterrorism allies in the middle east and north Africa…the State department lists Tunisia along with Jordan and Morocco as our committed partners in the coalition to defeat the Islamic State.”

And therein lies the problem.  Tunisia, Jordan, and Morocco are all parties to the OIC which served the “Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam” to the United Nations in 1993 which states how all 57 Islamic states on the planet view the rest of the world and how non-muslims are to be treated – through the lens of sharia.

The Enemy’s Unified Objective

The enemy in this war unambiguously and unanimously identifies itself as “muslims waging jihad in the cause of Allah to establish an Islamic State under sharia.”

Different elements of the enemy’s army have different roles and different methods to get to the same end – an Islamic State under sharia.

Every Islamic nation on earth is a party to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) which calls for sharia on the earth.

Al Qaeda, ISIS, and thousands of violent jihadi organizations on the earth state their objective is an Islamic State under sharia.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s By-Laws state their purpose is to establish an Islamic State under sharia.

All Islamic doctrine (sharia) requires muslims to wage war against non-muslims, in accordance with sharia, until an Islamic State is established under sharia.

Enemy’s Main Line of Operation:  Non-Violent Action

The idea the U.S. should only focus on groups or individuals engaged in violence is the same failed idea bringing the U.S. closer to defeat in this war.

The enemy’s line of operation that continues to be wildly successful against the non-muslim world is their ability to create the optical illusion that one part of their forces is pitted against another part and, therefore, friendly to us.

For instance, when suit-wearing jihadis from Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) stepped in front of television cameras and condemned the killings in San Bernardino, they appeared reasonable and “moderate” relative to the two jihadis and the dead bodies they left behind.

As the Islamic Movement moves forward and gains ground, they are increasingly willing to hold out the Muslim Brotherhood as the problem so long as it keep U.S. leaders from ever identifying Islam as the problem.

The concern UTT continues to voice is this:  time is growing short.

Leaders in the Islamic Movement know they need to keep us off target just a little bit longer.  So the closer American’s get to the truth, the more finely Islamic leaders parse the truth.

U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leaders have kept this administration from designating the MB terrorists for over a year and a half.  As there is a growing consensus to designate them, the calls now come for a partial designation because – we are told – people who want to non-violently overthrow America’s Constitutional Republic and replace it with a barbaric system which enslaves human beings (sharia/Islam) – should not be the focus of U.S. efforts against the Brotherhood.

In focusing primarily on the violent elements of the Islamic Movement, the United States is in grave danger of losing a war it could easily win if it simply identified the threat – sharia adherent muslims.

Coda

Yesterday’s hearing did a good thing by moving the ball forward in America’s effort to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.  As government officials move forward in their efforts to protect and defend this Republic, they will do well to remember that TRUTH is the standard to which national security professionals must cling if victory is still the objective.

Our objective, not the enemy’s.

Did Jihadis Just Execute a Bombing Operation at a CA Mall?

Understanding the Threat, by Jon Guandolo, July 9, 2018:

Evidence reveals jihadis attempted to bomb the Los Cerritos Center in California this past weekend.  This is one more in a string of numerous incidents across the United States indicating an increase in willingness by jihadis to use violence to silence those who speak truth about Islam.

Recently UTT has reported:

  • Some local police work harder to protect jihadis in their communities than the citizens.  See UTT article here.
  • Senior leaders of the FBI aid and abet known jihadi leaders and Islamic Centers.  See UTT video here.
  • U.S. Islamic schools teach what ISIS teaches.  See UTT article here.
  • Jihadis are in control of operations of some U.S. ports. See UTT article here.

So it should come as no surprise when a muslim slides his backpack under the table at the Counter Jihad Coalition (CJC) booth in Cerritos, California and walks away.  Literally.

UTT assesses this incident as a thwarted jihadi attack.  Lets look at the facts.

Those of you who follow UTT may remember in August of 2017 UTT published an article on the Counter Jihad Coalition (CJC) and its leader Steve Amundson.

This weekend, Steve and his team, including a pastor, set up their booth in a busy part of a mall called The Los Cerritos Center in Cerritos, California near Los Angeles.  As they always do, CJC hands out literature about Islam and the threat it poses to America and free people.

Over the last 6 months, Steve has reported an increase in physical assaults on him and his team.

The day began with two men snapping pictures of the CJC booth, then getting on the phone.  Steve Amundson witnessed this and recognized it as “red flag one.”

Steve has seen this behavior before, and it is usually the scouts looking for the CJC booth in order to alert others.

Later, two muslim women approached the booth and began cursing CJC’s people and calling them liars.  As mall security, which was standing in the immediate vicinity, was speaking with the women, a white haired muslim male moved over to the booth and slide his backpack under that table.  He then began speaking with the pastor from CJC.

After a short conversation, the muslim man walked away.

Amundson approached the pastor assuming the man was a friend.  When the pastor told Steve the man was an irate muslim complaining about CJC’s activities, Steve was immediately concerned for their safety.  He called security to stop the man, which was done.

Here are Steve Amundson’s words to describe what happened:

“I told security he left a backpack underneath our booth. The Moslem refused to take the backpack. We started to take cover behind cement pillars and told security to either call the bomb squad or have the guy pick up the backpack. He finally agreed to very carefullypick it up and security escorted him away. Security will not say at least right now if he was arrested, if the bomb squad was called or what. Was this a dry run or the real thing?”

Based on conversations Steve Amundson had with authorities, it does not appear the man’s backpack was ever searched.

This is a very serious incident, and either a dry run for a jihadi attack or the real thing.  The evidence leads UTT to believe this was the real thing.

The jihadis continue to ratchet up their aggressiveness, attacks, and violence here in America.

Will the FBI aggressively pursue this, or continue working with the jihadis to ensure no one puts a piece of bacon on the door knob of the local mosque?

To Win This War Americans Must Know Sharia

Understanding the Threat, by Stephanie Ameiss, June 26, 2018:

U.S. warfighting doctrine states that to professionally analyze a threat, you begin with how the threat defines itself and why the threat states it is fighting you.

From Al Qaeda and the Islamic State to the 9/11 attackers to the Boston Marathon bombers and jihadis killed or captured in Europe and the United States, the Islamic enemy unanimously states they are “muslims waging jihad to establish an Islamic state (caliphate) under sharia (Islamic law).”

To date, the U.S. intelligence and military community has yet to do a professional analysis of our enemy.

They have failed to read, study, and teach sharia.

This is why we are losing the war.

Sharia is the blueprint for how the Global Islamic Movement is fighting the war and it is the thing which the enemy seeks to impose on the world.

They tell us sharia is their goal everyday. They hold up signs, put up billboards, and put it out on television and social media. They say it in open court, they scream it in public, and thousands of speeches by Islamic scholars and leaders can be seen at places like MEMRI where they are constantly and clearly calling for warfare against non-muslims (JIHAD) until the world is under the rule of sharia.

Therefore, the professional response by U.S. military, law enforcement, intelligence professionals and leaders is to simply read Islamic law.

When a person does this they will quickly learn Al Qaeda and ISIS have never misquoted sharia to support their actions.

Crucifixion, beheading, stoning, rape, and other behaviors are all legal under sharia. But you have to read sharia to know it.

When you read sharia you will learn it is a capital crime for muslims to teach other muslims anything incorrect about Islam, and it is obligatory for muslims to lie to non-muslims when the goal is obligatory…like jihad.

Therefore, to be professional you must read authoritative books of Islamic law written by Islamic authorities for muslim audiences.

Reliance of the Traveller or The Islamic Law of Nations are a couple good places to start.

Understanding the Threat’s 3 day program for police, first responders, national guard, military, and others – “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Threat” – rocks people’s world because on Day 1 we lay out what sharia is, its authority in Islam, and what it says.

We use the very books and materials found in U.S. Islamic schools and mosques that muslims use to teach other muslims about Islam.

The reaction of the attendees of this training, including senior military and intelligence officials, as well as FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force agents and officers is always the same – they have never been taught the information, yet they believe it is critical to protecting their community.

Once this information is known, and professionals learn about the Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadi network in America, they put all of their experiences into perspective and can see the magnitude of the threat we face from the Islamic Movement.

Those educated about sharia and the jihadi network realize that when Islamic leaders make demands from TSA or police departments or from prisons or from local communities, they are not asking for “religious accommodations” they are demanding adherence to sharia.

Understanding the Threat is the only organization in America doing what we do.

Here are three things you can do to help grow the counter-jihad movement:

1. Use UTT resources to educate yourself and others on this threat.

2. Bring UTT’s 3-day “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Threat” to your area. Discuss it with your sheriff and police chief.

3. Consider for yourself or others UTT’s Train the Trainer program. This unique week-long program gives graduates the ability to teach others about the threat and defend the information from attacks from detractors.
