….Brennan has repeatedly insisted that jihad is not about holy war. Rather, as he put it in a speech in May, 2010, “Jihad is holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam meaning to purify oneself or one’s community.” According to him, to use the term the way the jihadists do, would as Fox News reported at the time, “‘play into the false perception’ that the ‘murderers’ leading war against the West are doing so in the name of a ‘holy cause.’”
For Brennan, “Describing our enemy in religious terms would lend credence to the lie propagated by al Qaeda and its affiliates to justify terrorism – that the United States is somehow at war against Islam.” It is one thing for a policy-maker who is a consumer of intelligence to cherish such illusions. It is another thing altogether for them to be nurtured by a leader of the intelligence community, whose biases may skew whether factual information is collected and objectively analyzed. The latter can put the nation in mortal peril.
This danger is all the more worrying because, even before John Brennan was nominated for the CIA job, he sought to circumscribe what its personnel – and their counterparts elsewhere in other intelligence agencies, the military, homeland security and law enforcement – could know about the Islamist enemies we confront. He officiated over the purging of files and training materials and the termination of trainers whose failure to toe his willfully blind policy was deemed “offensive” to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and other, so-called Muslim “activists.”
Worse yet, during John Brennan’s tenure at the White House, the Obama administration actually promulgated guidelines ensuring that, henceforth, “countering violent extremism” training materials and trainers paid for by the Homeland Security Department and used by any government agency – federal, state or local – must effectively be approved by these “community partners.” That means we are now allowing agents of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization sworn to our destruction, to determine our understanding and awareness of the threat they and their fellow Islamists pose to the rest of us.
Under the circumstances in which even Hillary Clinton says we are facing a jihadist threat, Senators considering Brennan’s nomination must answer a critical question: Is John Brennan so invested in the narrative promoted by America’s jihadist enemies that he will further compound, rather than correct, the politicization of intelligence he has promoted over the past four years from the White House.
Specifically, legislators need to assess John Brennan’s situational awareness with respect to the Muslim Brotherhood and what it calls “civilization jihad” – a pursuit through stealth and subversion of the goals the Brothers share with other jihadists: the triumph of shariah worldwide and the reconstitution of a caliphate to govern according to that Islamic supremacist and totalitarian doctrine. If he doesn’t get it, he shouldn’t get the job. He must be considered ineligible for the sensitive post of CIA director….

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group with Muslim Brotherhood origins, is again using its interfaith allies to accuse its opponents of being part of an anti-Muslim conspiracy. On January 15, the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Washington D.C. hosted anevent about the “Islamophobia Network” that was sponsored by ISNA.
The speakers included Rev. Dennis Wiley, co-pastor of Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ; ISNA president Mohamed Magid; Rachel Laser of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism and Rabia Chaudry, president of the Safe Nation Collaborative. Sponsors included the Jewish Community Relations Council, Sojourners and Rabbis for Human Rights—North America.
Laser focused on the report, “Fear Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network” that dismisses concern about the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood as anti-Muslim propaganda. The article about the event on ISNA’s website quotes an unnamed participant as expressing their surprise at “how few powerful organizations or people are behind an intentional anti-Muslim campaign.”
For ISNA and its allies, any action against the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network in America is “Islamophobia.” In 2004, Magid reacted to counter-terrorism raids by accusing elements of the U.S. government of being “intent on dismantling Muslim organizations and bringing them down.”
An interfaith group called Shoulder to Shoulder organized the church event. The group includes ISNA as a member, and Magid is a member of its executive committee. This is the same interfaith coalition that wrote a letterin March 2012 protesting the NYPD’s use of the anti-Islamist film, The Third Jihad, saying it is “bigoted propaganda.” The film, which is narrated by a devout Muslim, educates viewers about the Muslim Brotherhood origins of ISNA and similar groups.
ISNA and its interfaith allies make it sound like the “Islamophobes” make up accusations out of thin air. In reality, their critics rely upon verifiable open-source information, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s own documents and the statements of the federal government.
Though ISNA says it is “not now nor has it ever been subject to the control of” the Muslim Brotherhood, the U.S. government listed it in 2007 among entities “who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood” in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation. In 2009, a federal judge ruled that there was “ample” evidence tying ISNA to Hamas to justify its designation as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land trial….

Much ballyhoo surrounded the questions raised a few weeks ago by alert Members of Congress about the presence of Huma Abedin (more formally known at Mrs. Anthony Wiener) as a close and senior advisor to US Secretary of State Mrs. Clinton
Ms Abedin, an American born muslima,raised in the hate filled schools of Saudi Arabia, has close family ties to the muslim brotherhood with her mother and siblings featuring in prominent roles as brotherhood operatives overseas and in the USA. Huma herself was on the board of muslim brotherhood controlled Muslim Students Association while at Georgetown University in 1997 & 1998 (the same MSA that a few years later would be headed by the US-born Al Qaeda leader Anwar A-Awlaki – now thankfully permanently retired courtesy a US drone)
Readers may remember the forceful way that the media, the ummah (worldwide muslim community), and even fellow congressional representatives all excoriated the brave patriotic members of Congress who merely asked the question “Did huma Abedin receive adequate screening procedures, based on her history and family connections to violent, extremist and anti-American groups before being given access to sensitive State Department files, archives and materials?”
Perhaps the rest of America is now ready for that discussion.
It may help answer the question of why the US Secretary of State’s first reaction last week (on September 11th of all days) was not to protect US lives and interests abroad, but instead to follow the muslim brotherhood talking points about criminalizing free speech if it “offends” islam. (hint: the act of being a non-muslim is offensive to islam)

Walsh bends over backwards to make the usual assurances that not all Muslims want to kill Americans, but the fact that this is a controversy at all shows the extent to which Islamic supremacist propaganda has made inroads in the public discourse. Would Moon Khan and his allies really have us believe that there are no Muslims in the U.S. who want to kill Americans?
Here we go again. What about Naser Abdo, the would-be second Fort Hood jihad mass murderer; and Khalid Aldawsari, the would-be jihad mass murderer in Lubbock, Texas; and Muhammad Hussain, the would-be jihad bomber in Baltimore; and Mohamed Mohamud, the would-be jihad bomber in Portland; and Faisal Shahzad, the would-be Times Square jihad mass-murderer; and Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, the Arkansas military recruiting station jihad murderer; and Naveed Haq, the jihad mass murderer at the Jewish Community Center in Seattle; and Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar, the would-be jihad mass murderer in Chapel Hill, North Carolina; Ahmed Ferhani and Mohamed Mamdouh, who hatched a jihad plot to blow up a Manhattan synagogue; and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the would-be Christmas airplane jihad bomber; and many others like them who have plotted and/or committed mass murder in the name of Islam and are motivated by its texts and teachings — all in the U.S. in the last couple of years?
Walsh should not apologize for this. He should educate himself and begin to speak even more forthrightly and clearly about the jihad threat.
“Walsh won’t apologize for saying ‘radical Islamists’ in U.S. want to kill Americans,” by Bill Bird for the Chicago Sun-Times, August 24 (thanks to Mackie):
U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh remains steadfast in his conviction that “radical Islam” threatens the American way of life — a view the controversial congressman again expressed to an unhappy group of Muslim constituents Friday night.Moon Khan, a Republican Party precinct committeeman in DuPage County and member of the York Township board of trustees, was one of about 80 people who attended an “intense” meeting with Walsh Friday night in the back yard of Khan’s home in Lombard.
“It was a very, very intense meeting, and he did not change his mind,” Khan later said of Walsh.
The meeting was called after Walsh alleged there is “a radical stream of Islam” in the U.S. that threatens the lives of Americans — including residents of Addison, Elgin and Elk Grove — at a townhall meeting in Elk Grove….
