On Monday, April 18, legislators’ offices were visited by individuals associated with a group unknown to most lawmakers: The United States Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). In the interest of helping members of the U.S. Congress understand precisely who their interlocutors are, permit a brief introduction: The USCMO is the latest in a long series of front organizations associated with, and working to advance, the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.
Members of Congress should be clear about the true nature of that agenda. It is laid out most authoritatively in a document introduced into evidence by federal prosecutors in the course of the largest terrorism financing trial in the nation’s history, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation et al. Written in 1991 by a top Muslim Brotherhood operative, Mohamed Akram, and entitled “The Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal of the Group in North America,” this internal correspondence was meant for the eyes only of the organization’s leadership in Egypt. So, the document is direct and to the point: It explicitly states that the mission of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America is “destroying Western civilization from within … by [the infidels’] hands and the hands of the believers so that Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
There are two other important facts legislators should know about Akram’s memo.

President Obama just signed an executive order establishing a “Global Engagement Center.” This initiative is supposed to “undermine the disinformation of violent extremist groups.” Unfortunately, those most likely to be disinformed by his new Center are the American people.
This program is rooted in the same mistaken notions that have brought us grief to date. Notably, we are told that the danger we face arises from “violent extremists.” In practice, that means Islamic supremacists associated with the putatively “non-violent” Muslim Brotherhood can be relied upon to advise on how to contend with “extremists” who use violence.
But the Brotherhood’s stealthy jihadists, who have exactly the same goals as violent ones like the Islamic State, insist the real threat arises from non-Muslims – notably, returning veterans, “Constitutionalists”, Tea Party activists and the like.
Such “engagement” is a formula for our defeat, not victory.

2014 saw the founding of the United States Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), an umbrella organization constituting the first U.S. Muslim Brotherhood political party, and indeed the first religious identity political party, in the history of this country.
USCMO founding members CAIR and ICNA were previously identified as front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood during the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial in 2007. Sheikh Kifah Mustapha, who has worked with Ousama Jammal (current Mosque Foundation board member) at The Mosque Foundation, was listed by name as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. According to documents entered into evidence at the HLF trial, he was a “registered agent for HLF in Illinois” who acknowledged fundraising for the HLF from the mid-1990s until 2001. Mustapha has also raised money for MAS and ICNA initiatives during their annual conferences in Chicago.
Now, with an eye to the 2016 election, the USCMO is allying itself with far-left racialist and revolutionary movements like Black Lives Matter. The following video highlights the radical statements of 3 Islamists that should be chilling to Americans who cherish the Constitution and oppose the expansion of shariah law:
“We are the community that staged a revolution across the world. If we can do that, why can’t we have that revolution in America?” – Khalilah Sabra

The FBI has released a new edition of its anti-terror video game,Don’t Be a Puppet, that conforms to demands from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to exclude Islamic jihad from a list of potential terror threats.
In the game, a player is asked to work through a series of numbered boxes, beginning with “What is Violent Extremism?” and finishing with “Who [sic] Do Violent Extremists Affect?” Completing the activities in each box – watching short videos, reading through short texts, taking a quick quiz – allows the player, string-by-string, to free the puppet.
Despite the fact that Islamic jihadist violence ranks at the very top of global security concerns, though, it is not mentioned anywhere in the FBI’s puppet game. Instead, the game offers a psycho-babble of possible motivations including alienation, anxiety, personal frustration, and an unsupported claim about “twist[ing] religious teachings and other beliefs to support their own goals.” Anyone who actually perseveres through the game is left with the curious sense that they have just passed a Psych 101 class rather than learned anything substantive about Islamic terror.
One of the few interesting items in the New York Times’ whitewash of Hillary and Obama’s illegal Libyan war is the confirmation of weapons shipments.
Obama ultimately took her side, according to the administration officials who described the debate. After he signed a secret document called a presidential finding, approving a covert operation, a list of approved weaponry was drawn up. The shipments arranged by the United States and other Western countries generally arrived through the port of Benghazi and airports in eastern Libya, a Libyan rebel commander said.
“Humvees, counterbattery radar, TOW missiles was the highest end we talked about,” one State Department official recalled. “We were definitely giving them lethal assistance. We’d crossed that line.”
The story blames the problem on Qatar aiding Jihadists and Obama’s unwillingness to defy the terror oil state. But the claim that we had to arm terrorists to fight Qatar’s arming of terrorists doesn’t hold up too well. Furthermore we already know that US forces were told to turn a blind eye to Qatar’s weapons shipments. We could have blocked them instead.
The story mentions a competition between Qatar and the UAE over arming the locals, but fails to clarify that Qatar was arming straight Jihadists, while the UAE had taken an anti-Islamist line.
It also fails to clarify that Qatar was backing the Muslim Brotherhood. Just like Hillary and Obama.

The latest group of religious leaders to succumb to the interfaith web of deception are the Catholics, but that isn’t even the real problem. On February 17, at the University of San Diego, The U.S Conference of Catholic Bishops is participating in a panel discussion with the Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Islamic Society of North America.
So what does this mean? Essentially, the leaders of the Catholic church are throwing their congregations to the wolves. The Muslim Brotherhood has been designated a terrorist organization throughout the Middle East, but because their presence within the United States has been non-violent, they have been legitimized by the current administration, and even been looked upon by many as moderate. Make no mistake, they are not moderate, and certainly not peaceful.
