Crosstalk: May 2, 2017
Today and tomorrow, federal officials in Washington are hosting the 3rd annual National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. It's expected to draw hundreds of Muslim delegates from across America for training and for Muslim advocacy.
Joining Jim to discuss this gathering and the players involved was John Guandolo. John is a counter-terrorism expert and a former FBI agent. With the FBI he was assigned to the counter-terrorism division and created/implemented the FBI's first counter-terrorism training. He's the founder of Understandingthethreat.com and author of 'Raising a Jihadi Generation' and co-author of 'Sharia: The Threat to America'.
National Muslim Advocacy Day is said to be a private U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) event. Founding members include the American Muslims for Palestine, the Council on American/Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), the Muslim Uma of North America (MUNA) and The Mosque Cares.
John set the tone for this broadcast immediately by describing the USCMO as the 'mother ship' of the Muslim Brotherhood movement in North America. Their stated objective as described in their bylaws is to establish an Islamic state under Shariah law. Also, in their strategic documents they state their desire is to wage civilization jihad until North America (and the world) is ruled by Shariah law and that violent jihad is a tool they'll use to get the job accomplished.
He described how the U.S. Justice Department identifies the Council on American/Islamic Relations (CAIR) as the fourth organization created by the U.S. Palestine Committee (which is Hamas in the U.S.). They created CAIR in 1994 to be a Hamas focal point in the U.S. This is why CAIR is identified as a unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial in American history (U.S. v. Holy Land-2008).
John communicated that this is the 'suit wearing' arm of ISIS and Al-Qaeda because the Muslim Brotherhood is the grandfather organization that created the others mentioned.
Why does John know all this yet our legislators don't seem to? Since 2005, John has briefed over 100 members of Congress and he never briefed a member that knew the information. He believes it's because the Muslim groups previously mentioned have engaged in a propaganda war. The narrative within this war, from the Muslim perspective, is that Islam is a religion of peace and anyone who says anything against Islam, no matter what it is, is a hater, racist, bigot and an Islamophobe.
Also, the people these legislators have taken advice from for 15 years since 9-11 have exclusively been Muslim brothers.
So what are these groups advocating for? John explained it has to do with speech that can be deemed as racist, bigoted and Islamophobic. It's referring to speech that offends Muslims. When the Muslim community identifies someone as being an Islamophobe, that's considered a threat. It's to say that you are guilty of committing slander. Under Shariah, it's a capital crime to say anything about Islam or Muslims that they dislike.
So as this gathering takes place, hundreds of Muslims will be descending upon Capitol Hill to have personal visits at the offices of legislators while promoting an agenda in support of social justice issues and equality. In the latter case, John believes this means supremacy for Islam. He told listeners, '...this should be vigorously, and when necessary, violently opposed because it is the dismantling of the liberties upon which this nation and our government and our legal system was founded.'
