While life certainly appears to be going on normally in most sectors of American society, preparations are being made for war against us; a war that a particular enemy wants to fight on our own soil. Sadly, our government has known about the preparations for this war since the early '90's. Our government speaks as though there's nothing to worry about and describe those who've given us a taste of what may come via their terrorist acts as nothing more than mentally deranged individuals.
Joining Jim to discuss the proof for such preparations was John Guandolo. John is the founder of Understandingthethreat.com. He is a former FBI agent that was assigned to the counter-terrorism division. He is a counter-terrorism expert who created and implemented the FBI's first counter-terrorism training/education program. He is the co-author of 'Shariah-The Threat to America' and author of the book, 'Raising a Jihadi Generation'.
Our government has evidence concerning the largest terrorism financing trial in American history. That's the Holy Land Foundation Trial that took place in Dallas in 2008. It was the culmination of 15 years of FBI investigation work. The evidence in that case revealed that the most prominent Islamic organizations are part of a jihadi network on U.S. soil. Their stated objective is to wage civilization jihad until our government is toppled.
According to John, what we see from the time they published their strategic memorandum in 1991, this network has been building thousands of organizations. He believes the response from our government has been one of literally aiding and abetting the enemy.
What's been the result of this effort? This Crosstalk noted the following:
--Terrorist attacks often don't get reported as just that...terrorist attacks.
--Islamic centers/mosques have grown by the thousands. Jim noted that some reports indicate that in 2000 we had 1,209 mosques. According to www.islamthreat.com we now have 3,186 mosques. John indicated that when we were fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, mosques from this alleged 'religion of peace' had weapons 100% of the time. Now our allies in France and elsewhere are discovering the same thing in their nations.
--There are a disproportionately large number of Muslim managers and assistant managers in the largest hotels in some of the largest cities in America. Why are Muslims buying up quick marts and gasoline stations? Why is there an increasing number of Muslims working at airports? In fact, at Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport, the manager/trainer for baggage handlers for American Airlines is a Hamas leader.
Is this just a random chance, cultural trend? Could it be that it's part of what they have told us they want to do which is to conduct jihad here in the U.S.? As John noted, when you look at this from a military, intelligence collection, logistical and physical weapons training perspective, the jihad preparation conclusion makes sense.
Other questions abound. For example, why has the FBI been known to take out advertisements in the publication for the Islamic Society of North America, the largest Muslim Brotherhood organization? According to information obtained by our government, they're not only the nucleus for the jihadi movement, but they're also funding Hamas.
John has much more to share on this critical issue as he explains in greater detail how some in the Islamic movement are getting ready for what they call the 'zero hour'.
