There are times when you just have to hope you’re having a bad dream and will wake up. That’s the case with what I am about to discuss with you.
According to an editorial in Investors Business Daily, “Islamofascism: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc. “Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups. We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”
This is absolutely consistent with the document uncovered in the 1991 FBI raid in northern Virginia referred to as the Strategic Memorandum of the (Ikwan) Muslim Brotherhood, which you can read here. Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations — some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO — certainly not a coincidence. And another non-coincidence is that you have an administration, headed by Barack Hussein Obama, under which this Islamic infiltration can find acceptance and cover, including as part of the administration in certain key positions, such as Homeland Security.
As Investors Business Daily reports, front and center of USCMO is the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, the catalyst behind this Trojan horse jihadist political party. CAIR is linked in federal criminal court documents to the terrorist group Hamas, the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch.
CAIR’s chief Awad, who announced the USCMO at the National Press Club, is so radioactive, the FBI refuses to do outreach with him and his so-called Muslim-rights group until it can “resolve whether there continues to be a connection between its executives and Hamas.”
Equally troubling is the Muslim American Society, another founding member of the USCMO. MAS was formed as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,” a 2007 Justice Department court filing states. A 2011 MAS press release praised Osama bin Laden as “a visionary who believed in an Islamic state in Afghanistan.”
And who is the chairman of America’s new Islamist party? None other than Oussama Jammal, who once headed the notorious Bridgeview Mosque in Chicago — damn, another coincidence you presume? One of that mosque’s leaders was arrested and jailed for funneling millions to Hamas. And one of its most honored guests was bin Laden’s spiritual mentor, the late Palestinian cleric Abdullah Azzam. Some of Azzam’s relatives are Bridgeview members.
USCMO aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law. This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a “civilization jihad” against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and “destroying (it) from within” — an expressed objective from the strategic memorandum.
This is how the Islamic principle of hejira or migration works and all you have to do is gaze across the Atlantic and see the impact of it in Europe, especially England.
And just to remind you, it is CAIR that is protesting the presentation of the documentary “Honor Diaries,” – that’s the type of “political influence” you can expect. You can also expect this newly formed group of Islamists to support UN resolution 16/18. As Forbes reports, an initiative of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (formerly Organization of Islamic Conferences), the confederacy of 56 Islamic states, Resolution 16/18 seeks to limit speech that is viewed as “discriminatory” or which involves the “defamation of religion” – specifically that which can be viewed as “incitement to imminent violence.”
Ladies and gents, we are not just in an ideological battle for this Constitutional Republic against liberal progressive socialists. We must also engage an enemy which has allied itself with the liberal progressives, and some Republicans, with the long strategy to subvert and destroy America from within — a stated objective.
If we do not have courageous leaders who will identify both of these foes of our Constitution, foreign and domestic, this great nation could fall. Anyone not willing to make this stand isn’t qualified to lead our nation.
