Holder To Ban Religion In Terror Probes

According to NBC News, the Justice Department will soon prohibit religious  profiling in terror cases. The move, if true, would completely blind federal law  enforcement to the threat from Islamic extremism.

Already, the department has forced the FBI to bleach references to “Islam”  and “jihad” from its counterterrorism training materials. It’s also made it  harder for agents to infiltrate radical mosques.

But Attorney General Eric Holder reportedly now wants to make it illegal for  agents to even consider religion in their investigations.

Democrats on the Hill are cheering the changes, along with the ACLU and  radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups, who have all lobbied the administration  for them. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has seen several of  its officials jailed on terror-related charges, calls it “a step in the right  direction.”

Appearing before the Democrat-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee in 2012,  CAIR demanded the administration remove religion as a factor in terrorism  investigations, even though just four years earlier Justice had named CAIR an  unindicted terrorist co-conspirator.

The Islamic Society of North America, another designated co-conspirator,  hailed the move as a civil-rights victory worthy of praise from “Dr. Martin  Luther King Jr.”

The timing couldn’t be worse. Experts say that if anything, the U.S. should  be expanding its terrorist profile to include radical Muslim women along with  men. Russian intelligence warns female suicide bombers are threatening next  month’s Winter Olympics.

The FBI missed the Boston Marathon bombings because it failed to focus on  radicalized local Muslims. The only way law enforcement can effectively head off  future attacks — including possibly the upcoming Super Bowl in New Jersey — is  by gathering predictive intelligence in the Muslim community — namely, inside  mosques.

However, the attorney general is threatening to cut off these investigative  avenues for the FBI, as well as for border agents charged with protecting the  nation from Islamic extremists at airports and land crossings.

After 9/11, the Bush administration allowed agents to profile at U.S. borders  and in cases related to national security and terrorism. “Federal law  enforcement must use every legitimate tool to prevent future attacks,” states  the Justice Department’s “Guidance Regarding the Use of Race by Federal Law  Enforcement Agencies.”

These guidelines, in force since 2003, have been effective in disrupting some  42 attacks by Muslim terrorists against the homeland since 2001. Now they will  be amended to appease radical Muslim groups like CAIR.

After last year’s horrific attack on a Kenyan shopping mall, in which Muslim  terrorists shot people for failing to answer questions about Islam correctly,  CAIR showed its typical callous indifference.

“Who cares?” CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper shrugged, after the New York press  asked if the group was concerned American Muslims were involved in the plot.

“It doesn’t matter who’s involved — terrorism is terrorism,” Hooper said,  while insisting that terrorists are not being radicalized in mosques or the  Muslim community.

But federal indictments of terrorists consistently show they in fact are  being radicalized there. In virtually every case, defendants confess they were  motivated by Islam and its edicts to wage holy war on infidels. They all  devoutly worshipped at mosques where jihad was preached.

CAIR should know. It stepped in to block the FBI from investigating a mosque  in Minneapolis where several American teens attended before decamping to  Somalia, where they joined up with the al-Qaida branch behind the Kenyan  attacks.

Removing religion from jihadi terrorism is like removing Hell from religion.  It’s impossible. They are inseparable. This administration risks public safety  by trying.

MUST READ: FBI Instructed to Break Rules Banning Interactions With Terrorist Co-Conspirator CAIR

by J. Christian Adams

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) pulled out a Sharpie marker and wrote in big block letters at the bottom of aletter: ”THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. THE FBI MUST COMPLY WITH THE LAW.”

The letter was addressed to FBI Director James Comey:

Capture

Wolf was referring to the FBI’s violation of the ban on cooperation with the unindicted co-conspirator terrorist organization CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), according to a just-released DOJ Inspector General report. CAIR was determined to be related to the web of terrorist financing during the Holy Land Foundation trials in Dallas, a trial which resulted in guilty verdicts. Afterwards, the FBI issued a blanket policy: no cooperation in the field with CAIR.

But the FBI’s Office of Public Affairs issued instructions to ignore the policy.

Why are DOJ press flunkies in Washington, D.C. issuing directives to FBI field offices about how to deal with CAIR? The answer to this question lies at the heart of the scandal, demonstrating that the politicized lawlessness of the Eric Holder Justice Department now is affecting the FBI.

From the DOJ Inspector General’s report:

Instead, a different headquarters entity, the Office of Public Affairs (OPA), provided policy interpretation and advice to FBI field offices on potential interactions with local CAIR chapters, without consulting [NAME REDACTED].

I suspect the redacted name is a national security component that would have objected to the interaction.

Following the directive, the FBI brought in CAIR to teach “diversity training” to FBI officials in New Haven, Connecticut, in October 2010, and in Chicago in December 2010. Yet the rules specifically prohibited CAIR from participating in an “FBI Citizens Academy” community outreach program:

Nevertheless, based on guidance it received from OPA, the Philadelphia Field Office allowed a local CAIR official to attend as an invited guest. A few days later, CAIR-Philadelphia posted an article on its website describing its participation in the training program, with a link to the FBI’s website.

The DOJ Inspector General report only pertains to five documented instances of CAIR being brought into the DOJ family.  Mr. Wolf correctly notes in his letter that this probably “only represents a fraction” of everything else going on….

Top Ten Failures of the US Government on the Domestic Islamist Threat

By Patrick Poole

…Each of these cases is rooted in a fundamental failure by those government officials responsible to identify the nature of the threat. At their root these examples demonstrate what Team B II author and former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy has called “willful blindness.” For government officials who have sworn an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, however, their “willful blindness” is a breach of their professional duty to know, to understand and to respond.

It should also be noted that each of these cases has been brought to the public and elected officials’ attention before.   In most cases, no action was taken despite public outcry.  We hope that the winners of last week’s election will finally take responsibility for the nation’s security and take action against this threat of Shariah and Islamic terrorism.

Sources are provided so anyone—media, public, and policymaker—can understand the extent of the problem and investigate how our political, civic and religious leadership have allowed this threat to advance so far.

Connecting the Dots 101

By Frank Gaffney, Jr.

The dramatic events in Boston last week have given rise to what President Obama would call a “teachable moment.”  The question is, will we “connect the dots”?  And, more to the point, will our leaders, the media and the rest of us have the intellectual integrity and courage to learn the evident lessons?

The initial indicators are not encouraging. We now know that, despite the unconcealed hopes of some elected officials, elite journalists and most especially the self-appointed arbiters of “hatred” – the hate-mongering Southern Poverty Law Center, the perpetrators of murderous attacks at the Boston Marathon and in the days that followed turned out not to be white Christian or anti-tax extremists, but Caucasians of a very different stripe.  Yet, their true character and motivations continue to be obscured.

In fact, Timerlan and Dhozkhar Tsaraev were jihadists, born in the turbulent Russian republic of Chechnya – a honing fire for terror-wielding Islamists – and named, respectively for prominent figures in that movement’s distant and more recent past.

Here’s what we have learned from this episode that is highly instructive about the wider war we are in:

  • The Tsaraev brothers became “radicalized” as they embraced their Muslim faith.  The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that their mother encouraged this course, that the elder boy brought along his younger sibling and that they attended the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC).  As a powerful video produced by Americans for Peace and Tolerance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUYIHRRaPmA&feature=youtu.be) makes clear, the ISBCC is closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood – a group that seeks to impose its supremacist Islamic code of shariah worldwide.  Shariah commands its adherents to engage in or otherwise support jihad (or holy war).
  • Sources at the Tsaraevs’ mosque are spinning the press with stories that Timerlan was ejected at one point for challenging an imam’s endorsement of Martin Luther King. Also, shortly after the Marathon bombings, the ISBCC issued a press statement condemning the terrorist attack.  Yet, these deflections cannot be allowed to obscure the reality that this mosque – like many others in America – promotes shariah and jihadism.  (See the peer-reviewed study published in 2011 by the Middle East Quarterly (http://www.meforum.org/2931/american-mosques) in which a random sample of one hundred such institutions found that 80% of them are associated with both shariah and jihad.)  As such, mosques like the Islamic Society of Boston must be considered to be part of the problem.
  • The FBI interviewed Timerlan Tsaraev in 2011 at the request of a Russian government evidently concerned about the jihadist inclinations of this Chechen expat.  The Bureau says it “did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign, and those results were provided to the [Russian] government in the summer of 2011.”  Unfortunately, this statement seems to say more about the politically imposed limitations on the Bureau’s ability to understand and identify the roots in jihad of such terrorism than provide an accurate assessment of the elder Tsaraev’s behavior…

….Given the foregoing problems, it is hardly surprising that the American people are largely uninformed about the true nature of the threat we are facing.  As a result, they are not being engaged, as they must be, in the defense of our republic against enemies foreign and domestic.

Like the U.S. government, the media and other elites, the public needs to be read in on the threat shariah represents.  Everyone should be encouraged to examine, for starters, the strategic plan of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America (http://www.amazon.com/An-Explanatory-Memorandum-Archives-Brotherhood/dp/0982294719).  Dated 1991 and introduced into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2008, this document makes plain that we face in the Brotherhood and its various front groups, operatives, mosques and cultural centers a formidable foe, determined to “destroy Western civilization from within” and by our own hands.

The American people can, if they learn from the Boston jihadi-induced teachable moment, become part of the solution to this mortal peril.  We urgently need their vigilance, their constructive response with the admonition to “see something, say something” and their support for initiatives aimed at reinforcing our national protections against anti-constitutional doctrines like shariah.  These could include: curbing immigration of shariah-adherent Imams and Muslim populations; surveillance of mosques that promote this doctrine and its corollary, jihad; and removing Muslim Brotherhood-tied individuals from official and advisory positions in the U.S. government.

These are but a few of the dots that must be connected if we are to prevail over our generation’s existential ideological threat to freedom.
