The White House is preparing to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization, a measure that would impose economic and travel sanctions against the group.  “The president has consulted with his national security team and leaders in the region who share his concern, and this designation is working its way through the internal process,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an emailed statement on April 30.

The move seems to be entirely logical and fair, since the Brotherhood is the religious foundation of Islamic terrorist groups, such as al-Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and ISIS.  It not only serves as their ideological wellspring, but also cooperates with them on multiple levels, including financing and providing material support for their operations.  It is a fact that before ascending to the highest positions of ISIS and al-Qaeda, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Osama bin Laden, and Ayman al-Zawahiri belonged to a common ideological precursor: the Muslim Brotherhood.  All these groups are bound by the common ideological belief in a global caliphate governed by Islamic law.  The Brotherhood’s longstanding motto is “Allah is our objective.  The Prophet is our leader.  The Qur’an is our law.  Jihad is our way.  Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.  [Allah is greater!]”  The Brotherhood has provided the platform used to indoctrinate young men into Islamism and a bridge for recruits to graduate into the more violent Islamism.  Factions within the groups have also supported each other based on shared goals, common enemies, and support for a united Islamist front.

Thus, if it walks, talks, and acts like a terrorist, it is probably a terrorist and deserves to be treated as such, right?  “Wrong,” say the mainstream media.  “Trump wants to hurt Muslim Brotherhood,” whines the Huffington Post, blaming it all on the administration’s “Islamophobia” and “conspiracy theories [promoted by the hate groups in the U.S., many of them with deep ties to Bolton and Pompeo] attempting to tie political opponents and prominent American Muslim organizations to the Muslim Brotherhood.”  Are you not seeing an irony in that statement, HuffPo?  You have just created a great conspiracy theory yourself!

CNN, The WSJ, and many others describe the group with respect and admiration and parrot the notion that the Brotherhood “denounced violence decades ago” and embraced democratic methods.  It even formed political parties throughout the region!  Labeling them terrorists, they say, would hurt American diplomacy and alliances, as well as the whole democratic process in the Middle East.  Also, they argue, the George W. Bush and Obama administrations did not recognize the Brotherhood terrorists.  They were so much smarter than Trump!

Or were they not?

Trump Considers Designating Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Org

Finally, a U.S. president who understands the threat.

The Trump administration is considering officially designating the Islamist group known as the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, a policy unimaginable during the terrorist-friendly Obama administration which championed the group as an ally.

“The president has consulted with his national security team and leaders in the region who share his concern, and this designation is working its way through the internal process,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement April 30.

The Trump administration’s deliberations over the prospective designation come weeks after President Trump designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as an FTO to combat that theocratic dictatorship’s global campaign of terrorism. The designation gives the government more tools to fight terrorism.

“This unprecedented step, led by the Department of State, recognizes the reality that Iran is not only a State Sponsor of Terrorism, but that the IRGC actively participates in, finances, and promotes terrorism as a tool of statecraft,” Trump said in a statement. This designation, which took effect April 15, was “the first time that the United States has ever named a part of another government as a FTO.”

As Joseph Klein previously wrote at FrontPage, the mullahs’ regime “lives and breathes Islamic extremism, which it seeks to export through its global jihad terrorist network,” adding that the “IRGC sits at the center of that terrorist network,” providing “funding, equipment, training, and logistical support to terrorist proxy groups, including most notably Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria.” The IRGC has also participated in attacks on Americans.

Although the Muslim Brotherhood still enjoys support throughout the Arab world, Bahrain, Egypt, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates have already designated the group a terrorist organization, The Epoch Times reports. The Brotherhood-backed HAMAS organization has been designated a terrorist organization by the United States. Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was previously a member of the Brotherhood.

The UAE designated the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Brotherhood affiliate in the U.S. that poses as a Muslim civil rights group, a terrorist organization in 2014. In the U.S., CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in 2007 in an alleged criminal conspiracy to support both HAMAS and the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi reportedly asked President Trump April 9 for the designation during a private consultation. Sisi overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood-backed president, Mohamed Morsi, in 2013, and then won election in his own right the year after. Since then he has cracked down on Muslim militants.

National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly favor the designation, but officials at the Pentagon and elsewhere in the administration have been dragging their heels.

The Obama administration was infested with Muslim Brotherhood backers.

For example, Hillary Clinton’s ties to the Brotherhood are well-documented.

Understanding Why the Deep State Had to Take Down General Michael Flynn

American Thinker

Does the American public really understand what happened to Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn?  Highlights of the case have been thoroughly exploited by the shallow, left-leaning media as a convenient avenue to attack President Trump.  But important elements of the story remain largely buried from public view.

The tragic political demise of this distinguished general who was President Trump’s initial national security adviser, one of the key jobs in the White House, has been well documented.  Former FBI director James Comey and the now disgraced upper echelon of the FBI and, subsequently, Special Counsel Robert Mueller maliciously trapped him, resulting in his ultimate prosecution and pleading guilty to lying to the FBI.  Not only did Flynn lose an important and influential job in the White House, but they also bankrupted him with legal fees; threatened his family; and, worst of all, damaged the good name of a highly decorated military professional who served his country honorably and with distinction as a member of the American Intelligence Community.

The despicable and unethical attack on Flynn immediately after his appointment by Trump was just one element of a shameful Deep State campaign to discredit and destroy the Trump presidency.  As Trump’s national security adviser, Flynn had Trump’s ear.  He was potentially the Deep State’s worst nightmare.  Flynn knows in detail how the Intelligence Community and the FISA courts operate.  With a 33-year military career, including heading up the Defense Intelligence Agency, Flynn was an existential threat to outgoing President Obama and his shameless and highly partisan CIA director, John Brennan, who cynically and criminally corrupted the Intelligence Community for political purposes on behalf of Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The Conservative Tree House linked Flynn’s fall from grace to his knowledge of what happened in Benghazi.  Flynn knew how they lied and covered up the disaster that cost four American lives, including an ambassador’s.

Behind the attack-motive was the much bigger State Department and CIA problem with the U.S. Libyan weapons and the flow to Syria.  The U.S. sending weapons into the hands of al-Qaeda was always the larger risk to the Obama administration.  This problem started with Clinton (State) and Panetta (CIA at the time), but now those weapons going to Syria was an even bigger problem.  Flynn was not in place at the time (2010 – 2011).

16 Democrat presidential contenders have endorsed CAIR

American Thinker

By Thomas Lifson

The Democratic Party of 2018 is aligning itself with the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), “an organization identified by the Justice Department as an ‘entity’ of the Muslim Brotherhood linked to pro-Hamas operations in the U.S.”  Ryan Mauro of The Clarion Project has totaled up the list of Democrats likely running for their party’s presidential nomination who have endorsed this organization, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror finance trial.

This is not your father’s Democratic Party.

It is a daunting line-up, including many of those regarded as frontrunners.

  • Senator Kamala Harris
  • Senator Cory Booker
  • Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
  • Senator Amy Klobuchar
  • Senator Sherrod Brown
  • Former A.G. Eric Holder
  • Billionaire Tom Steyer
  • California’s Rep. Eric Swalwell
  • Maryland’s Rep. John Delaney
  • Ohio’s Rep. Tim Ryan
  • Former governor Bob Casey
  • Former governor Martin O’Malley
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend
  • Senator Michael Bennet
  • Senator Chris Murphy
  • Massachusetts’s Rep. Seth Moulton

American Jews continue to support Democrats by a huge margin.  They are fools.

What Will It Take To Wake Up America?

Townhall

Adm. James A. Lyons

It has been 17 years since the Islamic jihadists conducted their terrorist attack on America, 11 September, 2001, killing almost 3,000 innocent Americans who were doing nothing more than going to work.  What was the ideology that drove these Islamic jihadists to carry out such atrocious acts?  Our political and military leadership who have been thoroughly indoctrinated in “political correctness” still remain incapable of identifying the ideology and the enemy.  Clearly, the plague of jihadi terrorism has its roots in Islam.  However, due to our former president’s obfuscation of the scriptures of Islam found in the Quran and Shariah law, which drive jihadi terrorism, he has facilitated the spread of Islam and its supremacists’ ideology.

Continuing the use of terms like “countering violent extremism and work place violence,” is nothing more than perpetuating the Obama administration’s propaganda, which only confuses the American public’s understanding of the true nature of the threat.  The jihadists have been thoroughly indoctrinated in the core canonical beliefs of Islam as written in the Suras (chapters) of the Quran, which drives their violence.  It certainly is not for a lack of a job or educational opportunities, which is part of the progressives’ nonsense propaganda.   Further, using the term “radical Islam” to describe jihadi terrorism implies that there is some “moderate” form of Islam.  Regrettably, that is not the case, nor have the jihadists hijacked Islam.

The Islamic leader of Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said it best when he was Prime Minister: there is no “moderate Islam.”  Islam is Islam!  Democracy is the train we ride to achieve our ultimate objective, which is a world dominated by Islam.  He couldn’t have said it any plainer.

To further complicate matters, another part of the problem can be traced to respected religious leaders like Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama, who continue to promote the Islamic propaganda through their vast communication networks that “authentic” Islam is opposed to terrorism and that Islam is a religion of peace!  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The worst six words President G.W. Bush ever uttered were, “Islam is a religion of peace.”  There are 109 verses in the Quran where Muslims are commanded to engage the infidels in combat.  It is an obligation for all Muslims to conduct jihad against the infidels.   No appeasement or civil works project will change that obligation.  We have wasted billions of dollars on such projects, but it has no impact on the core jihadist’s outlook.

The second reason lies in the successful propaganda campaign led by the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and their front groups, e.g., the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), et al, which have penetrated most of our government security and intelligence agencies, including the White House.  The so-called progressives continue to ignore the MB creed which was exposed in the Dallas 2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas terrorist funding trial.  In short, the MB creed is to conduct silent jihad (non-violent) as the primary means to destroy America from within by our own miserable hands, and replace our Constitution with Shariah law.  Under both the G.W. Bush and Obama administrations, they have been most successful in silencing anyone, especially our military, who tried to expose Islam as the ideology that jihadists follow in carrying out their terrorist attacks by calling them racists or Islamaphobic, a term conjured up by the MB.

The senior jurist of the Muslim Brotherhood, cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi has stated that neither the Quran nor Shariah law can be amended to conform to changing human values and standards.  His view is that the Quran and Shariah law present the absolute norm to which all human values and conduct must conform.  The late political scientist, Samuel Huntington, pointed out that Islam is totally incompatible with Western culture and traditions.  They can never “co-exist.”  Islam is at war with the West.  It is a clash of civilizations.

Even Alexis de Tocqueville, the French philosopher, commented after studying the Quran in 1838 that it not only encourages but commands a holy war against all infidels, as well as the necessity for obeying the Prophet Mohammed.  This is what drives the Islamic State and its splinter groups today.  Its members believe everything should be done as it was during the reign of the prophet, the perfect man.

If Alexis de Tocqueville were able to see what is happening in Europe today, he would be rolling over in his grave.  He would not understand today’s leaders in Europe, or for that matter in North America, with their appeasement and leftist ideology.  He would see the acceptance of millions of Muslim refugees, most of whom are males of military age, into Europe as a “Muslim invasion.”   Very few of these Muslim refugees assimilate into their host countries’ customs or traditions.

We have experienced a similar situation in the United States.  We have witnessed the impact of Muslims forcing the tenets of Islam into our education system while at the same time degrading our customs and heritage.  Clearly, this must be stopped.  Our borders must be made secure and a moratorium placed on further Muslim immigration into the United States.  Our training manuals for both our military and law enforcement agencies that were previously purged under the Obama administration must be restored so that military and law enforcement personnel properly understand the threat and the enemy.  It is Islam, which is a totalitarian ideology bent on world domination masquerading as a religion.  Until this is understood, we will not be successful in defeating the enemy.

The Radical Left and Muslim Brotherhood Continue Their Assault on Protecting Our Constitutional Rights

Family Security Matters

by CHRISTOPHER HOLTON

 

State Representative Eric Redman of Idaho, a Vietnam veteran of the U.S. Air Force, is the latest elected leader in the USA to author American Laws for American Courts legislation.

Sadly-and predictably-Representative Redman has now had to endure vicious attacks and an organized disinformation campaign engineered by radical Leftist organizations, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Muslim Brotherhood, in the form of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

While patriotic, educated Americans should view opposition from the SPLC and CAIR as a sign that American Laws for American Courts is well worth supporting, the recalcitrant and corrupt news media has aided and abetted their disinformation campaign.

Before we address the opposition’s underhanded tactics, it’s worth reviewing just what American Laws for American Courts legislation does.

MN Governor Candidate Phil Parrish: ‘Islam is incompatible with the US Constitution’

New Zeal

Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR and the chronically dishonest Southern Poverty Law Center are very upset with Phil Parrish, a Republican candidate for Governor of Minnesota.

According to the SPLC:

Regina Mustafa, founder of the Minnesota-based Community Interfaith Dialogue on Islam, reached out to Parrish after learning he attended a talk by Usama Dakdok called “Revealing the Truth about ISIS.” Dakdok is one of a number of anti-Muslim speakers who have created a cottage industry touring the country to malign Islam as an inherently violent religion. In his Minnesota presentation, Dakdok said ISIS was the “true representation of Islam.”

Mustafa sent Parrish an email, offering to meet with him face-to-face. “Since you have attended this talk about my faith,” she wrote, “I figured you would also like to hear from a person who actually practices Islam.”

In Parrish’s reply, he condemned Islam as fundamentally incompatible with U.S. law.

First, he claimed to have, “a very unusual in-depth level of training, experience, and understanding regarding multiple faiths and the practice of Islam,” which he has suggested in public interviews is related to his time in the U.S. Naval Reserve working in intelligence.

He continued, “I separate Islam from the word faith because faith takes belief and Islam requires only submission. I will not participate in any faith dialog because Islam is ultimately not a faith.”

Parrish demanded Mustafa “publicly denounce Sharia and swear to adhere to, protect, comply with, accept, and defend the United States Constitution.” He suggested that as a practicing Muslim — or as he put it, “practicing Islamist” — she would be unable to do so. He also wrote, “Islam, Sharia, and the Quran are the antithesis of the U.S. Constitution.”

From the Center for Security Policy: Shariah Law vs. the Constitution
