“The Subtle and Effective Jihad: The Infiltration into Communities by the Muslim Brotherhood

 Monday, February 4th…. I have just returned from nearly two weeks on the road meeting Americans who are concerned about the weak, apologetic and appeasement national security policies of our nation.  High on the list of concerns are the nominations of Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense and John Brennan for CIA Chief.  It has been nearly 12 years since a career in the national security sector found me; however, this is the first time I feel a sense of panic and urgency in the concerns and comments of those I have met.


..America, you are in panic, but you have to do more than worry…..


For one thing:  Although, recent polling indicates (www.secureamericanow.org) that the majority of Americans do not approve of the Hagel nomination, there is a disconnect between the engagement of those who oppose the nomination and what is being heard at the congressional level. 


..America, The Lights Are Going Out And We Don’t Hear You…


We understand that Senator Pryor, an Arkansas Democrat up for re-election is sitting on the fence.  The body of representatives who will be voting on this confirmation, are not hearing a loud roar in disgust, and I have to wonder why?   These are nominations that will shape the foreign policy of our nation, and impact the safety of our loved ones.  Will we remain in capitulation to the Islamists and will we have a Secretary of Defense that did not vote that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard is a terrorist body?  Chuck Hagel is not just dangerous for Israel; he is dangerous, and ill informed, which will put America at risk.  Sign the petition on the Secure America Now website. www.secureamericanow.org.


…Is America on Overwhelm, and in particular, with regard to Islam?”


I, for one, believe in our zeal to capture the attention of the American public on the threat of Islam, we are inundating them with nomenclature, as well as fear, that is stymieing them from being more proactive.  For example, the words, “Shariah” and “Jihad” were relative unknowns five years ago.  Today, read a blog on national security and one needs to understand, precisely, the language or be left out of the discussion. 


I was no different, by the way.  Up until recently, I had great difficulty pronouncing Arabic names. It took great discipline to remember the names, places and connections that make up the global terrorist network. …not to mention a very daunting and frightening exercise.


…Ten Things You Must Know about the rise of the Islamization of America…


In an effort to make this simple, I am going to suggest that you remember the following ten most important facts.  Expand on your understanding once you have the basic facts.  Please share these facts and become part of the national security dialog.


1)     What is the Muslim Brotherhood?


The Muslim Brotherhood, founded in 1928 in Egypt by Hassan al-Bann, is a militant, pro-sharia law organization that has used both violent and non-violent means to achieve its ultimate goal of restoring the Muslim caliphate (the political-religious state comprising the Muslim community and the lands and peoples under its dominion in the centuries following the death (ad 632) of the Prophet Muḥammad) and the glory of the Islamic empire. The Muslim Brotherhood has spawned dozens and dozens of organizations across the globe, including the terrorist organizations al Qaeda and Hamas. Today, numerous Muslim organizations in America are either actively connected to the Muslim Brotherhood or owe their existence to the Muslim Brotherhood.


2)      What is Shariah?


Shariah is the moral code and religious law of Islam. Sharia deals with many topics addressed by secular law, including crime, politics, and economics, as well as personal matters such as sexual intercourse, hygiene, diet, prayer, and fasting. Though interpretations of sharia vary between cultures, in its strictest definition it is considered the infallible law of God—as opposed to the human interpretation of the laws (fiqh).



3)     Is Islamism a political or religious movement?


It is a political movement based on supremacy.


4)     What makes it a political Movement?


It is a totalitarian, supremacist, global, theocratic, and legal doctrine.


5)     What is Jihad?


Some thirty times in the Qur’an, the faithful are exhorted to “strive in the way of Allah.” The Arabic word translated “strive” here is also called Jihad or “Holy War”. The basic meaning is “to exert oneself” or “to fight”.   The Code of the Muslim Brotherhood is: 


“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”


6)     Is the Muslim Brotherhood active in the United States?


In 2004, federal investigators discovered a Muslim Brotherhood memorandum during a search of a northern Virginia home. The memorandum, written by Mohamed Akram for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Shura Council, described a “civilization jihad” aimed at North America. It stated: “The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” This explanatory memorandum also included a list of 29 Muslim Brotherhood connected organizations in the U.S. The memorandum was entered into evidence at the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial in 2007-2008.


7)     How do we recognize “civilization Jihad” vs “violent Jihad?”


Violent Jihad is characterized by acts such as 9-11, Foot Hood, and Benghazi.  The silent, creeping,  jihad is the infiltration of Islamists into our communities.  We see this most often with the “interfaith dialogs” with Imam’s across America.  An example of the capitulation to the Islamic community would be the Ground Zero Mosque.  It is also an example of the Islamists using America’s civil liberties to manifest a local jihad.   Organizations that have known ties to terrorist entities such as: CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), Muslim Student Association (MSA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), American Muslim Council (AMC) and the most notorious of them all, the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) support local candidates, the election of board members to school districts across America, State and Federal candidates.


See Muslim Brotherhood in America map.

..and by the way, they have known terrorist links as stated by the FBI and have IRS tax-exempt status as nonprofit, charitable organizations.  Does this make your skin crawl?  It should.


8)     What is Taquiyya?


The word “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding.” It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralizing any criticism of Islam or Muslims.


9)     Are there moderate non-Shariah Muslims in America?


A Muslim man who prays 5 times a day to Mecca, eats Halal food, and has 4 wives is not a moderate Muslim. A woman who wears a Hajib around head is doing so out of respect for a Shariah compliant lifestyle. She is not a moderate Muslim.  A woman in a Burka is not a moderate Muslim. Shariah is a strict interpretation of Islamic law that calls for Jihad and denounces western values.


10)  Can Americans Stop Shariah Islam from infiltrating our government and becoming a adjunct to the United States Constitution?



Yes, but it is going to take a large mobilization of millions of people working together.   Get informed.  Invite a speaker to your civic group or place of worship.  Help support the mobilization with a contribution to an organization that is advocating for strong national security policies.
