The Muslims Are Coming!

By Mark Tapson

This Friday marks the Chicago, Seattle, and Los Angeles premiere of a documentary called The Muslims Are Coming!, which features a band of Muslim comedians touring middle America “to explore the issue of Islamophobia!” The exclamation mark is there to let you know that the show is going to be great fun! And all just in time for the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks (as they say in comedy, timing is everything).

As the film’s website explains, this project arose in a context in which “Islam has been duly tarnished by the mainstream media.” Actually, it has been duly tarnished by the barbarism of Islamic fundamentalists, and duly defended and whitewashed by the mainstream media. “We are so many years out of 9/11,” the website continues, “and Muslim fear-mongering hasn’t dissipated.” Yes, 9/11 was so long ago and yet the Islamophobia inexplicably never ends! When are we Americans going to get over it and realize we have nothing to fear from Muslims?

As FrontPage Magazine has pointed out many times, “Islamophobia” is a Muslim Brotherhood construct to paint legitimate concern about the demonstrable threat of fundamentalist Islam as bigotry and “Muslim fear-mongering.” That threat didn’t end on 9/11 – it is a continuing danger not just on our own soil but worldwide, as the most cursory look at history and current events will show. It is offensive and dishonest to claim that the media are to blame for Islam’s bad reputation and that 9/11 is in the distant past. The day that the victims of 9/11 stop living in American hearts will be a day of shame and surrender for this country….

…American bigotry and ignorance are not the problem. The problem is a politically correct insistence that there aren’t serious doctrinal issues of violence, religious supremacism, misogyny, anti-Semitism and totalitarianism within Islam that need to be confronted honestly and unflinchingly. Is suspicion of Muslims common today in America, twelve years after 9/11? Of course, and with good reason. And who is to blame for that suspicion? The media? Ignorant fear-mongers? Or Islamic fundamentalists themselves?

A more honest documentary about anti-religious bigotry in this country now would actually be called The Christians are Coming!, because there is far greater antagonism in the media and pop culture toward Christianity today than toward Islam. Are there even any Christian comics? I don’t see any with HBO specials or appearances on Late Night with David Letterman. Anyone billing himself as a Christian comic should prepare to be utterly ignored, if not reviled, by the entertainment industry.

For Muslim-Americans who don’t want to be judged by the evil their fellow believers do, the answer is not to try to slap a happy face on the issue and expect to laugh our troubles away, but to acknowledge that Islam itself, not “Islamophobia,” is the biggest obstacle to peace.

Muslims Want to Make It a Crime To Insult Islam

A ‘see-no-jihad’-ist at the CIA?

By Frank Gaffney, Jr.

….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….

Interfaith Against ‘Islamophobia’

By Ryan Mauro

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….

Now is the time to revisit the US State Dept aide who has ties to Muslim Brotherhood

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)

Rep. Joe Walsh won’t apologize for saying “radical Islamists” in U.S. want to kill Americans

By Robert Spencer

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….

Islamically correct counterterrorism

by DEBORAH WEISS

The Department of Justice and the FBI are revising their counterterrorism training material to remove “inaccurate and biased information” at the direction of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and FBI Director Robert S. Mueller. The Department of Homeland Security, which uses the most funding for counterterrorism training, recently issued new guidelines on “countering violent extremism.” Why the sudden need for drastic change?

On Nov. 15, 2011, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) National launched a coordinated campaign across the country, with its various chapters requesting records from local, state and federal agencies on their use of taxpayer dollars to fund “Islamophobic training.” The campaign involves 87 filings for records requests across 15 cities nationwide.

CAIR-Michigan’s civil rights director claims CAIR wants these records to ensure that law enforcement is using trainers who provide “objective and unbiased information” to protect Americans from “violent extremists.” CAIR expressed particular concern that tax dollars are being “wasted” on “agenda-driven, inaccurate, or Islamophobic” training and materials.

For years, CAIR has led an aggressive campaign against “Islamophobia.” In the past, its targets have included individuals and corporations whose words, actions or package designs smack of insults to Muslims, as seen through the eyes of CAIR.

Now CAIR’s target is national security. CAIR’s professed goal is to wipe out bigotry, insensitivity and “unfair” bias. So what’s wrong with that?

CAIR, which presents itself as the country’s leading American-Muslim civil rights organization, is, in fact, a radical Islamist organization that is extreme in its goals and tactics. It was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terror-funding trial in the history of the United States.

Though it is expert in public relations, it cannot escape the fact that its roots stem from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic Association of Palestine and that it has close ties to Hamas. Several of its former leadership members have been arrested and convicted on terrorism-related charges or other felonies, and numerous others are being monitored by the FBI. Despite its claims of representing “mainstream Muslim Americans,” the FBI finally has wised up and cut all ties with CAIR…
