Breitbart News Daily: Fmr. FBI Counterterrorism Agent: ‘Vast Majority’ of US Mosques/Islamic Centers Part of ‘Jihadi Network’

…He also said the one of the biggest mistakes in dealing with Islamic terrorism is that “we want to tie it to ISIS” or another group when this is “part of a much broader movement” and more “than one organization.”
“That network is not being touched,” he said. “That network in Paris that supported that attack is not being touched.”
More troubling, according to Guandolo, is that many authorities in the federal government are oblivious to the Jihadi network.
He said during one of his training sessions, someone who had been in the FBI and counterterrorism for over 14 years and was so angry that he “had never heard of the information you are putting out here.” When he asked others in audience from the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies to “raise your hand if you knew this… zero hands went up.”
“That right there is the issue,” he said, adding that he has even briefed three- and four-star generals who had also been clueless. “They don’t know it.”
Guandolo said that even senior government officials have “no idea this is going on inside the United States because the people advising us are the leaders of the organizations—that per evidence in counterterrorism trials—have been identified organizations that are Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, al-Qaeda” who are “necessarily hostile to our system, our war fighting, our way of life. That’s the problem.”

There was a school board meeting Tuesday night in Rosenberg.
About 8-10 members of the public were first on the agenda. These men and women came to the microphone, introduced themselves, and gave stirring testimonies in support of Foster High School teacher Herby Woolverton.
Mr. Woolverton had been involved in a controversy since giving his senior government class an eight page handout about Islam. From the Houston Chronicle: “The eight-page handout a Richmond high school teacher gave to his senior government class asserted that Muhammad was a “false prophet” and that Islam is “an ideology of war.”
The document handed students on March 27 so frightened one Muslim girl in the class that she now is reluctant to attend. The student’s family, said Mustafaa Carroll, executive director of the Houston Council on American-Islamic Relations, also fears retaliation…
.”‘ Fears retaliation? Oh, please.
Many of the speakers at the board meeting had been former students of Mr. Woolverton, or have children who have been students. They all gave glowing reports of this teacher, saying he was the best teacher they’d ever had, he taught them to think for themselves, he was a true educator, etc.
These folks were very angry with the school board for their complete lack of support for this excellent teacher. One man was also angry that the board is “catering to a tiny minority of the population”, rather than the school population as a whole, and said “it’s all downhill from here.”
There was a standing room only crowd, the majority of them in support of Woolverton. There was rousing applause and even some standing ovations after each speaker. Have to wonder if the board members feel they made a serious mistake?
Ultra-sincere, deeply righteous CAIR spokeschick Ruth Nasrullah was interviewed during the evening.
If I heard her correctly, she was asked about a statistic from Woolverton’s handout: “38 percent of Muslims believe that people who leave the faith should be executed.” She seemed to pooh pooh this statement, saying there is no basis in fact for it.
The Muslim site “Islam Question and Answer” makes it clear that the penalty for apostasy is indeed death. “If a Muslim apostatizes and meets the conditions of apostasy – i.e., he is of sound mind, an adult and does that of his own free will – then his blood may be shed with impunity. He is to be executed by the Muslim ruler or by his deputy – such as the qaadi or judge, and he is not to not be washed (after death, in preparation for burial), the funeral prayer is not to be offered for him and he is not to be buried with the Muslims. The evidence that the apostate is to be executed is the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Whoever changes his religion, execute him.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2794). What is meant by religion here is Islam (i.e., whoever changes from Islam to another religion).”
Ruth seems to misunderstand her religion. Have a look at the eight page handout if you get a chance. On the whole, it looks to be mostly accurate- if anything, it’s too kind. If the above handout link does not work, try this.

Thursday was Hijab Day at NP3 High School (Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep), a public charter school in Sacramento, California. Predictably, the school responded to concerns over why a public school would be hosting such an event with charges that critics were motivated by “hatred” and “bigotry.” The whole episode became an illustration of how Islamic supremacists are manipulating politically correct, multiculturalist pieties to advance their agenda.
It all started when a Jihad Watch reader in the Sacramento area who is very close to NP3 High School sent me the flier for the day, which read:
NP3 Hijab Day
January 28, 2015
- The hijab is a headcovering worn by Muslim women as a symbol of modesty and their devotion to God.
- GIRLS! Come to the library Wednesday morning and MSA members will assist you in putting your hijab on.
- You can bring any type of rectangular (or square) that is bought at any store*
*If you do not have any scarves, they will provided for you to borrow for the day
The person who sent me the flier explained that this all started with a student at NP3 High who is an intern for the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), now designated a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. This student, I was informed, gave a presentation about “Islamophobia” and Islam at what was a mandatory staff meeting that also included an official CAIR representative. The school then decided to sponsor an official “Hijab Day” in cooperation with CAIR. The flier also showed that another Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization, the Muslim Students Association, was also involved.
My source also told me that every female member of the faculty and staff, and students as well, was encouraged to wear a hijab Thursday, and that NP3’s principal, Tom Rutten, strongly encouraged everyone to participate and wear one…
….For your convenience, here are the major concerns that people have about the NP3 Hijab Day event:
1. FBI statistics show that hate crimes against Muslims, which are never justified, are actually quite uncommon, with hate crimes against Jews being over four times more common. Details here: http://www.islamist-watch.org/blog/2014/12/new-fbi-hate-crime-stats-another-blow-to-islamist
Yet I would venture to guess that there has been no event at NP3 High to call attention to the challenges that Jews face, and that none is in the works. I understand that NP3 Hijab Day was a student-run event. Would a Jewish or pro-Israel student be allowed to stage a similar Day calling attention to anti-Semitism? If this included the rise in Islamic anti-Semitism in Europe and elsewhere, would this be allowed? Would you allow a Yarmulke Day at NP3 High?
2. CAIR and the MSA appear to have been involved in this event. Both were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land trial, which involved funneling money to the terror group Hamas. Both have demonstrable ties, documented and noted by the FBI, with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. See, for example, these links:
Is it really wise to allow people from organizations that have ties to terror groups to interact with NP3 students?
3. As I am sure you’re aware, even student-run events by Christian students have come under fire in public schools in recent years, and many see them as a violation of the Establishment Clause. Would you allow a Wear the Cross Day? I have never heard of such an event in any public school except in conjunction with protests against it on Constitutional grounds. Do you not think this is a double standard — and one perpetuated by Hijab Day at NP3 High?
4. Many women and girls around the world have been brutalized and even killed for not wearing a hijab. A list of some of them, with further links to the relevant news stories, is at this link: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/today-is-world-hijab-day
Are you not concerned that NP3’s Hijab Day might end up justifying and helping perpetuate the pretexts for this oppression? What steps did you take to ensure that that did not happen? If a student wanted to hold a Day calling attention to the oppression of women that is all too often justified by Islamic law, would that be allowed at NP3?
I hope these questions make it clear that there are legitimate concerns regarding NP3’s Hijab Day, and to dismiss them as “hate-filled” is simply an attempt to shut down the public discussion that is needed on these issues. I look forward to receiving your answers to these questions. Also, I would be happy to come to NP3 High School at my own expense, in order to engage in an open forum with students on these and related issues, and to ensure that the “open and frank discussion” on these issues at NP3 High is not dominated solely by one perspective only. We can settle on a mutually agreeable date for this open forum at your convenience — I can be reached at this email address and at [redacted].
Needless to say, I received no response. The exchange was yet another example of how one side of the debate about sharia and jihad is trying to have a rational discussion, while the other responds only with slogans and smears. The response from Rutten and the student was drearily predictable with its cries of “hate” and lack of specific response to any of the concerns raised in the letter to Rutten.
And so Hijab Day came and went at NP3 High, with all questions about it dismissed as “bigotry.” We may only hope that none of the girls who voluntarily donned a hijab on Thursday to show their multicultural sensitivity, or their daughters, will ever be forced to wear one at the point of a gun. But such concerns are not allowed to be voiced at NP3 High School.
