….Once a Brit converts to Islam, he takes on the fanaticism of the convert and tends to drift toward an uncompromising embrace of Islam.
He doesn’t just kneel to Allah, like Horner or Whyte or Taliban Terry or Sam the White Widow, he or she becomes obsessed with forcing his own fellow countrymen and women to do likewise. Their goal is to ensure that everyone’s children kneel to Allah or live as second-class citizens, forever deprived of full legal equality, as is the case in even supposedly moderate Muslim countries like Malaysia or Indonesia.
Even a supposedly moderate mosque is a gateway to this civil war. Even if its Imam is not Saudi trained, not funneling money to the Taliban or Hamas, and the local Muslim bookstore isn’t stocked with Al-Awlaki’s Greatest Hits, it’s still an open door pointing toward conflict.
We can try putting a percent on it and arguing over the exact percentage, but Cameron cannot deny the simple fact that the mosque opening statistically means that some local lads will convert and that some of them will drift toward terror abroad or at home.
And that means he cannot deny that the area would not be safer without a mosque. Every mosque increases civil unrest with its presence. It would be nice if that weren’t so, but it is. Even if it is not actively promoting the Jihad, by propagandizing for Islam it is recruiting converts who are then entirely likely to drift off into terror.
You wouldn’t want even a moderate biker gang or a moderate drug shop in your neighborhood. Because we’re all familiar with the concept of gateway drugs and feeders. A mosque is no different. It’s a feeder. Even if it’s not overtly selling Jihad, its Dawah is a gateway drug for the real thing.

In an interview with Ryan Mauro of The Clarion Project, former FBI agent and author of the new book Raising a Jihadi Generation: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America, John Guandolo had some revealing information about Islamic radicalism.
Some of Guandolo’s answers were clarifying. Others were packed with information. Still others broke down myths about Islamic goals that have been perpetuated by a misinformed liberal media and a complicit White House philosophy.
All of them are dire.
Beginning at the end of his comments and working forward, Guandolo simplifies his warning with a sports metaphor, “As I see it, we’re five minutes into the first quarter of the football game. The MB is out on the field and they are winning 72-0. We are on the sidelines in baseball outfits wondering what inning it is.”
It’s a simple image with a powerful message. Far too often the United States is reactive rather than proactive in matters of national security. Much of that comes from the Obama administration with its efforts to disguise terrorism as “workplace violence” or refusing to use words such as “jihadi” or “extremist” which are both accurate and appropriate descriptions.
Guandolo pulls no punches with a clear warning about the diversionary tactics employed by the Brotherhood to always keep us looking in the wrong direction. “Part of the problem in getting Americans to see the imminent threat,” he says, “is that they, like the U.S. security services, are completely focused on the kinetic stuff – bombings, shootings, etc. We need to worry about these, but it isn’t how they intend to defeat us.
“The MB strategic plan says they are waging “Civilization Jihad” to destroy our civilization and that they will use our leaders to do their work for them.”
Human rights attorney Brooke Goldstein revealed that, “The Obama administration co-sponsored with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a resolution at the UN that criminalizes the use of the media to condemn Islam. We are supporting the pretext under which Christians are being murdered.”
The human rights organization American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) has unveiled an 18-point platform for preserving and defending free societies. AFDI calls for the U.S. and other non-Muslim governments to recognize officially that Islam is a political movement and so not solely religious in the strict sense of the U.S. Constitution. AFDI recognizes that Islam in it mainstream theological formulations and its dominant form throughout its history, not “extremist Islam” or “hijacked Islam” or “Islamism,” but Islam in the Qur’an and Sunnah as understood by Islamic jurists and theologians, can and should be regarded as an authoritarian and supremacist political system as well as a religion, and thus that Muslim groups should be subject to all the scrutiny and legal requirements of political organizations, without being able to shield their political activities behind the protection of religious freedom.
– AFDI denounces the crippling rules of engagement under which our soldiers are forced to labor. They should be given the freedom to defend themselves and protect their comrades.
— AFDI calls for immediate investigation into foreign mosque funding in the West and for new legislation making foreign funding of mosques in non-Muslim nations illegal.
— AFDI calls for surveillance of mosques and regular inspections of mosques in the U.S. and other non-Muslim nations to look for pro-violence materials. Any mosque advocating jihad or any aspects of Sharia that conflict with Constitutional freedoms and protections should be closed.
— AFDI calls for curriculum and Islam-related materials in textbooks and museums to describe the Islamic doctrine and history accurately, including its violent doctrines and 1,400-year war against unbelievers.
— AFDI calls for a halt of foreign aid to Islamic nations with Sharia-based constitutions and/or governments.
— AFDI denounces the use of Sharia law in any Western court or nation.
— AFDI advocates deportation hearings against non-citizens who promote jihad in our nations.
— AFDI calls for an immediate halt of immigration by Muslims into nations that do not currently have a Muslim majority population.
— AFDI calls for laws providing that anyone seeking citizenship in the United States should be asked if he or she supports Sharia law, and investigated for ties to pro-Sharia groups. If so, citizenship should not be granted.
— AFDI calls for the cancellation of citizenship or permanent residency status for anyone who leaves the country of his residence to travel for the purpose of engaging in jihad activity, and for the refusal of reentry into his country of residence after that jihad activity.
— AFDI calls careful investigation of Muslims resident in non-Muslim country who have obtained naturalized citizenship or permanent residency status, to ensure that that status was not obtained under false pretenses.
— AFDI calls for the designation of the following as grounds for immediate deportation: fomenting, plotting, financing, attempting or carrying out jihad attacks; encouraging or threatening or attempting to carry out the punishments Islamic law mandates for apostasy, adultery, blasphemy, fornication or theft; threatening or attempting or carrying out honor murders, forced marriage, underage marriage, female genital mutilation, or polygamy.
— AFDI calls for the U.S. and other free nations to have jihad, as it is traditionally understood in Islamic jurisprudence to involve warfare against and subjugation of non-Muslims, declared a crime against humanity at the U.N., or to withdraw from the U.N. and have its headquarters moved to a Muslim nation.
— AFDI calls for legislating making illegal the foreign funding of Islamic Studies departments and faculty positions in our universities.
— AFDI demands the repeal of U.N. resolution 16/18 and any other resolutions that might limit the freedom of speech.
— AFDI calls for all Muslim chaplains in prisons and the military to be thoroughly vetted, and dismissed if they have ties to any Islamic supremacist group, or if they advocate jihad.
— AFDI calls for the development of energy policies that will free us from dependence upon oil from Muslim countries.
Through SION, AFDI establishes a common American/European coalition of free people determined to stand for freedom and oppose the advance of Islamic law, Sharia. Islamic law is not simply a religious system, but a political system that encompasses every aspect of life; is authoritarian, discriminatory, and repressive; and contradicts Western laws and principles in numerous particulars. SION respects Muslims as fellow human beings and rejects Islamization as a comprehensive political, religious, cultural and social system of behavior and ideology.
AFDI and SION stand for:
– The freedom of speech – as opposed to Islamic prohibitions of “blasphemy” and “slander,” which are used effectively to quash honest discussion of jihad and Islamic supremacism;
– The freedom of conscience – as opposed to the Islamic death penalty for apostasy;
– The equality of rights of all people before the law – as opposed to Sharia’s institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims.
