Enemies Foreign and Domestic
By: Tom Chatham
The last few years have seen some very confusing actions coming from the leadership in Washington that has made people question what exactly is going on. The war on terror has suddenly been turned on its’ head with little explanation why. Suddenly, Al-Qaida fighters are allies and U.S. veterans and patriots are the enemy. It makes no sense until you learn what has actually been going on in the land of the free lately.
Thanks to an FBI discovery of a key Muslim Brotherhood document, which was entered into evidence during the Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial, we now know what they are up to and who some of the players are. The document presents the Brotherhood plan for “civilian-jihad” against the U.S.
The internal memo said Muslim Brotherhood members “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Evidence presented at the trial of the Texas-based Muslim charity Holy Land Foundation, convicted of funding Hamas, exposed CAIR, ISNA and others as front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States
Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine in a Dec.22 story said six men turned the White House “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
The article names Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, or MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA; and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
An internal Council on American-Islamic Relations memo written in 2007 called for infiltrating the “judiciary, intelligence and homeland security committees” by, among other things, “placing Muslim interns” in Capitol Hill offices.
CAIR, consequently, placed a number of employees within the Capitol, including known terrorists and terrorist suspects. Is it a coincidence that U.S. policy is openly supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood? Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified before the House Intelligence Committee in 2011 that the Muslim Brotherhood was a “largely secular organization” without “an overreaching agenda.”
The new Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi declared “The Koran is our constitution, The Prophet Mohammed is our leader. Jihad is our path. And death for the sake of Allah is our most lofty aspiration.” This also happens to be the motto for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Groups such as CAIR and the Islamic Society of North America have a proven record of senior officials being indicted and either imprisoned or deported from the United States due to their terrorist activities and connections.
CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, for example, invited al-Qaida terrorist Anwar Awlaki to speak and pray at the Capitol. Awad also helped get Awlaki into the Pentagon within months of Awlaki assisting the 9/11 hijackers.
The Egyptian magazine noted Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, identifying it as a Brotherhood “subsidiary,” Alikhan was responsible for the “file of Islamic states” in the White House and provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011, according to the magazine.
Elibiary was singled out by Rep. Gohmert at a House hearing. The Republican congressman confronted Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano with a charge that Elibiary, who had a security clearance as a member of the DHS advisory council, accessed a federal database and shopped sensitive reports to a left-leaning media outlet to publicize his claim that the department is promoting “Islamophobia”
Elibiary, president and CEO of the Freedom and Justice Foundation of Carrollton, Texas, has been a strong supporter of the radical Islamic theologian Sayyid Qutb, whose teachings inspired and continue to govern al-Qaida and Islamic jihadist organizations worldwide. . Elibiary has strongly criticized the U.S. government’s prosecution of fundraisers for Hamas and is a defender of CAIR
Former assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy documents that the DHS advisory group helped devise the new Obama counterterrorism strategy. The strategy has law-enforcement pare back their intelligence-gathering activities and take their marching orders from ‘community partners.’
The Egyptian magazine, Rose El-Youssef, said Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups in the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. He took part in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi.
Obama appointed Magid, chief of the Muslim Brotherhood-founded ISNA, as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security. Magid has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI.
Patel maintains a close relationship with Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, Rose El-Youssef reported. He’s a member of the Muslim Students Association, which was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front group in a 1991 document introduced into evidence during the Holy Land Foundation trial.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation or OIC is a bloc of 57 Muslim nations and “claims jurisdiction over Muslims in non-Muslim lands, defines human rights as Shariah, and advocates that Muslims not assimilate into the cultures of non-Muslims.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton teamed up with the OIC to pass a U.N. resolution to restrict free speech deemed to be “defamation” of Islam.
In July, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R, Minn., and four other Republican House members, pointed to Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, as a possible Muslim Brotherhood influence on U.S. policy. The lawmakers asked the inspector generals at the departments of Homeland Security, Justice and State to investigate, prompting Democrats and Republicans to rush to Abedin’s defense.
Abedin worked for an organization founded by her family that is effectively at the forefront of a grand Saudi plan to mobilize U.S. Muslim minorities to transform America into a strict Wahhabi-style Islamic state, according to an Arabic-language manifesto issued by the Saudi monarchy.
“For us to raise issues about a highly based U.S. government official with known immediate family connections to foreign extremist organizations is not a question of singling out Ms. Abedin,” Bachmann wrote, “In fact these questions are raised by the U.S. government of anyone seeking a security clearance.”
Advocates for an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence on the U.S. government argue a simple reading of security clearance guidelines in reference to Huma Abedin’s family would warrant investigation.
The Center for Security Policy notes that security clearance guidelines for federal employees state a “security risk may exist when an individual’s immediate family, including cohabitants and other persons to whom he or she may be bound by affection, influence, or obligation are not citizens of the United States or may be subject to duress.”
The guidelines express concern for any “association or sympathy with persons or organizations that advocate the overthrow of the United States Government, or any state or subdivision, by force or violence or by other unconstitutional means.”
Nevertheless, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank has suggested researchers and lawmakers who have presented evidence of the Muslim Brotherhood ties of Abedin and her family are motivated by racism. He commented in a column that it’s “hard to escape the suspicion” that the charges have “something to do with the way she looks and how she worships.”
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called the request for an investigation of Abedin and her family a “sinister” and “nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable woman, a dedicated American and a loyal public servant.”
Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obama’s chief advisers, was born in Iran and by some accounts actually sets the policy at the White House. She holds the same extremist views as President Obama and is a major driver of the fundamental change called for in America.
The U.S. government continues to be advised by organizations and individuals that the U.S. government itself has identified in federal courts as fronts for the international Muslim Brotherhood. When combined with the fact that we have a President with questionable loyalties, it presents some disturbing possibilities.
The Muslim Brotherhood in America is a latent insurgency.
According to the new US counterinsurgency manual, FM 3-24, an insurgency is defined
“as an organized movement aimed at the overthrow of a constituted government through the use of subversion and armed conflict (JP 1-02).”
In America there is weapons training in many of the Ikhwan’s ( Muslim Brotherhood) camps whereas in other countries that training would have to be conducted secretly or at great risk. It is likely that the Ikhwan in America has been and is conducting military training for contingencies in America, and to support Brotherhood activities in jihad combat in foreign lands. It should be inferred there are latent military capabilities in US Ikhwan organizations.
Naturalized American citizens identified as members of the Muslim Brotherhood have violated their oath of citizenship and deceived the US government as to foreign allegiances and intent. The oath reads:
“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion.”
Now that we know who is influencing our government at the highest levels, and what their intentions are, it might answer the question of why our government is turning on its’ own citizens and stockpiling so much ammo. It seems as though America has been sold out by our leaders and a terrorist organization has taken control. The out of control debt will indeed destroy us from within as our enemies have proposed. The U.S. is in extreme peril and our future is now more uncertain than ever. It is not inconceivable that these Ikhwan personnel will be absorbed into government operations or otherwise used in some capacity if martial law is declared and used to further the fundamental change called for to complete the transformation of America into part of a worldwide Islamic Caliphate.
The far left in America and the Muslim Brotherhood are using one another to destroy capitalism and usher in a new society. Once those on the right are disposed of, liberals think they will have a free hand to build their Marxist society but the Muslims may have different plans and will dispose of the liberals when the time comes.
Those that think there is a government plot to destroy the Constitution of the U.S. may not only be correct but may be grossly underestimating the agenda at work and its goals. The massive arms buildup by Americans may be justly acknowledged as the most prudent thing to do at this time. When a major crisis visits this country in the near future, there may be a nefarious government plot at its core. It would behoove all Americans to keep alert of events in the coming weeks and months and take nothing for granted when it comes to the well-being of your family. If your “root cellar” is not already well stocked, you should do something about that sooner rather than later.
