June 2012, the "National Security 5" -- five members of Congress led by
Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) -- called attention to U.S. government
infiltration by Muslim Brotherhood (MB) operatives. Based on disturbing
information from court evidence and documents, correspondence, media
reports, congressional briefings, and public statements, they found that
individuals with questionable loyalty to the United States held
high-level security clearances and worked in key national security
positions. Tragically for the security of the United States and the
safety of its citizens, these five earnest members of Congress, armed
with ample evidence, were roundly criticized by both Republicans and
Democrats, and their request for investigations were ignored.
The five -- Bachmann, Trent Franks (R-Arizona), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Tom Rooney (R-Florida),
and Lynn Westmoreland (R-Georgia) -- had sent letters to the inspectors
general of the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland
Security, and to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
They identified specific individuals, organizational affiliations, and
activities of concern conducted by Muslim Brotherhood operatives
employed in various capacities in the U.S. government. They cited links
to the much-publicized Muslim Brotherhood mission statement that has
called its work in America "a kind of grand Jihad to eliminate and
destroy the Western civilization from within."
was ignored, despite the release five years earlier by the U.S.
government itself of a list of several Muslim Brotherhood front
organizations and their members across the United States, 300 in all,
named as "unindicted co-conspirators" uncovered during the terrorism
financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation, the largest such trial in
U.S. history. The inside influence operation in America is extensive
and goes far beyond the federal government to include Islamists posing
as patriots and becoming part of the Tea Party movement, Islamists
infiltrating the 9/11 Truther Movement, and Islamists becoming part of
the fight for "civil liberties" through organizations like the ACLU, to
name just a few.
Muslim Brotherhood in America
in 1928, four years after Kemal Ataturk dismantled the Ottoman
Caliphate, the Muslim Brotherhood today has grown into the world's
oldest and largest Islamist movement. Its goal: to establish a global
Islamic caliphate or government under sharia, or Islamic doctrine. It
seeks to dismantle all non-Islamic governments on earth and supports
terrorism against the West and Israel.
Muslim Brotherhood has spawned al-Qaeda, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic
Jihad, and various worldwide terrorist groups. In the 1950s, it
established a beachhead in the United States and today has over 5,000
front organizations from coast to coast, according to a former FBI agent
and designated "Subject Matter Expert" on the Muslim Brotherhood and
Project," written in 1982 and discovered during a raid of the home of
one of the organization's international leaders by Swiss authorities
following 9/11, is a multi-phased, long-term master plan
for the cultural invasion of the West. The discovery of two documents
in 2001 and 2004 provided, respectively, evidence of an actual MB plot
for the cultural invasion and Islamic domination of the West and a
general strategy for the takeover of America.
Holy Land Foundation trial in 2007 provided for release of the
incriminating and significant document "An Explanatory Memorandum for
the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America."
Written by a senior Hamas leader in the United States in 1987, it was
discovered during a 2004 FBI raid of a Virginia house. It outlines a plan
of stealth jihad and gradual takeover and imposition of sharia. It
also cites explicit strategies, including but not limited to subversion
of American organizations, shutting down of free speech, control of the
language to exclude accurate descriptions of jihadist activities,
ensuring that non-Muslims don't study Islamic doctrine, forcing sharia
compliance, and claiming victimization.
Tea Party Movement
December 2010, Will Coley, director of Muslims for Liberty -- a group
that decries American exceptionalism, accuses the United States of war
crimes, and espouses ostensibly anti-Israel ideology -- joined the
Knoxville Tea Party. Coley had been involved with the Muslim
Brotherhood-affiliated Muslim Student Association at the University of
Central Florida in Valencia, where he converted to Islam. His stated
goal in joining the Tea Party was to educate people about Islam and
sharia doctrine and counter "misinformation" and "Islamophobia." But
his disingenuous statements and faulty interpretations of Islamic
doctrine appeared to suggest otherwise.
Tennessee, Coley expressed concern about proposed legislation to
prohibit sharia in the state. According to a Tennessee Tea Party
activist, Coley stated that he was working with a local Islamic school
to eliminate sharia prohibitions from the Tennessee statute. He
characterized the legislation as a freedom-of-religion issue and claimed
that it was indicative of the hatred conservatives feel toward Muslims.
gave local talks promoting the idea that sharia doctrine is compatible
with the U.S. Constitution and went so far as to falsely proclaim that
Islamic legal theory influenced American law. Coley obfuscated the
truth about sharia, a comprehensive Islamic doctrine that controls every
aspect of life and must be imposed on Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
Sharia mandates gender apartheid, religious apartheid, cruel
punishments, the denial of free speech and due process, and many other
such incompatibilities with American constitutional law.
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) characterizes its mission as working to
"defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to
every person in the country by the Constitution and the laws of the
United States." In reality, the ACLU has defended known terrorists,
including al-Qaeda operatives, hampered law enforcement efforts and
intelligence gathering on terrorists, and fought detainment policies for
enemy combatants. It was indeed curious that as an alleged champion of
free speech, the civil rights organization failed to rail against White
House efforts to remove the film Innocence of Muslims from YouTube following the attack against U.S. personnel in Benghazi this past September.
Of greater significance, Investors Business Daily
revealed in a September 26, 2012 online editorial that the ACLU
national executive staff now comprises eight Muslims; one even heads its
National Security Project.
The editorial quotes Steven Emerson,
Islamic terrorism expert and director of the Investigative Project on
Terrorism, who says, "The ACLU was founded on the basis that there
shouldn't be any blasphemy laws. Yet in the last 10 years, they've
appointed members of the Muslim Brotherhood who believe in blasphemy
to the article, one staffer, attorney Jameel Jaffer, helped raise
$130,000 for CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas terrorist
funding trial, and successfully sued to restore the visa of Tariq
Ramadan, grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood's founder, Hassan al Banna.
Jaffer is also dedicated to releasing the frozen assets of terrorist
front groups and ending the U.S. drone program that tracks and kills
jihadists. Essentially, an organization that ostensibly exists to
protect the civil liberties of Americans, the ACLU is now controlled by
Islamists and pushing CAIR's talking points on the "unfair" targeting of
In late 2012, MD Rabbi Alam, unsuccessful Democrat nominee for Missouri secretary of state, founded the American
Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC). Its expressed goals were to
get Muslims elected to public office and encourage greater Muslim
involvement in the American political system. Alam has publicly
supported imprisoned Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) leader Sami
Al-Arian, claiming Al-Arian was "falsely accused and victimized by the
war on terror" even though Al-Arian confessed to terror-related charges.
of Alam's close associates are supporters of Viva Palestina, an
organization with close ties to Hamas and PIJ. Alam has publicly
speculated about Jewish involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even
suggesting that no Jews died on 9/11 and that the war on terror is a
hoax that has nothing to do with Islam or Muslims. As part of the
group's efforts, Alam and others at AMPAC are dedicated to disproving
the official government story on 9/11 and demonstrating that Muslims
are, in fact, the true victims of 9/11, deserving special protections.
A November 28, 2012 AMPAC meeting was posted at Ustream TV,
in which members are encouraged to join the 9/11 Truther Movement to
question the integrity of the 9/11 narrative. In the video, AMPAC
members agree on the importance of their goal to erase Muslim
responsibility for 9/11. Alam can be heard saying, "We have an
opportunity to be part of this movement; we should all join. Don't
bring up AMPAC. We join but give them ownership. They don't know why
people are joining. Make friends and stay focused. There is a way to
stretch the truth."
heard on the video speaking to the group via telephone is Muslim
convert and radio talk show host Kevin James Barrett, listed by the
Anti-Defamation League as one of the leading promoters of anti-Semitic
9/11 conspiracy theories. Barrett, who spouts the usual Jewish blood
libels, has asserted that the United States and Israel have pushed a
genocidal war on Islam and targeted Muslims worldwide. In the video, he
claims to have contact with 9/11 Truthers and Nation of Islam (NOI)
members. Barrett recommends that the group focus on involving
African-Americans and notes that NOI is "one of the best organized
groups out there." He refers to Louis Farrakhan and his close
relationship with Imam Siraj Wahhaj, a radical Islamist member of CAIR,
an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing who
advocates the replacement of the U.S. government with an Islamic
caliphate under sharia.
Muslim Brotherhood has long been engaged in subversive influence
operations at the highest levels of our government, according to The Muslim Brotherhood in America,
the comprehensive course developed by Frank Gaffney, president of the
Center for Security Policy. This reality, sounded in the alarm by the
National Security 5, is supported by the organization's own fairly
recently discovered planning documents written decades ago. Clearly,
the documented strategies and tactics of the Muslim Brotherhood are
firmly in place, and their tentacles now reach far beyond the federal
government into myriad unlikely facets of American society. No
organization, special interest group, or governing body can expect to be
immune to the threat posed by this seemingly omnipresent, subversive
