Geller: Jihad in America 2015: ‘The Danger to the Homeland Has Never Been Greater’

 by Pamela Geller;

 29 Dec 2015

“The danger to the homeland has never been greater”: so said
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX)
60%
, Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, in September as he released a new report on the global jihad.



 In each of the past few years, I have done an end-of-the-year summary piece on jihad activity and Islamization during the year in review, so that people might better understand the overarching progress of the jihad in the U.S., and connect the dots. You won’t find this material summarized elsewhere: the Obama administration and the media have gone to obscene lengths to adhere to Islamic law by deceiving and disarming the American people about the motive behind war we’re engaged in, and they never discuss its overall progress.

Here is what is really happening. A study showed that ISIS supporters in the U.S. are focusing their energies on plotting jihad attacks here. In April, three jihad terror plots were disrupted in three weeks, showing the scope of the jihad threat. The FBI revealed that it foiled Islamic State-inspired attacks on July 4. The director of the FBI, James Comey, has said that the Islamic State is now actively recruiting in all 50 states. A new ISIS manual shows the United States in the jihad group’s crosshairs, and the image is apt: the FBI revealed in November that it is pursuing no fewer than 900 active investigations related to Muslims in the U.S. getting involved with ISIS.

These devout Muslims won’t be easy to find: ISIS has issued an e-book titled “How to Survive in the West,” teaching Muslims in the U.S. and elsewhere in the free world to appear to be secular and moderate – until the time comes to strike.

Meanwhile, law enforcement officials don’t know the whereabouts of 9,500 immigrants whose visas have been revoked for terrorist activity.

For well over a decade, my colleagues and I have been smeared, defamed and libeled because we told the truth. Since I wrote my book Stop the Islamization of America and established the Stop Islamization of America initiative of my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), we have seen this nation effectively crippled. Our elites are surrendering our freedoms without so much as pang of their collective conscience.

Terrorism arrests in the US and Europe are now at record highs. Even the lily-livered Lilliputians over at the Washington Post reported “an unprecedented number that officials attribute to a heightened threat from the Islamic State and the influence of social media on potential recruits.” G-d forbid they attribute it to Islam. Still crazy after all these years.

A little 9-year-old boy in New York City was nearly beheaded by a jihadist in an “ISIS audition,” and it barely made news. Black Lives Matter didn’t even blink, even though the boy was black. Likewise buried was the story of a Muslim in California, Jihad Mufaddi Khalaf Haddadin, who was arrested in December for making a bomb threat against police in El Monte, California. And in New York City, it took a full year for two NYPD policemen who were executed by a jihadi in December 2014 finally to be honored.

Jihadis in the U.S. appeared heedless of interference from authorities. A Muslim teen busted in Pennsylvania was seeking to buy a Yazidi slave girl. In Syracuse, a Muslim airport worker threatened to “get my gun and kill everybody.” Harlem Suarez, a Muslim who plotted a jihad attack on a Florida beach involving weapons of mass destruction, had been cleared for a Key West Airport job that gave him direct access to secure areas.

The Muslim bloodlust became more brazen. In September, the FBI foiled an Islamic plot to kill the Pope during his visit to the U.S. In Ohio, a Muslim hospital worker who called for American soldiers to be beheaded in their homes was arrested. In California, a Muslim with a sword chased down his non-Muslim neighbor while screaming, “I would die and kill for Allah.” A Muslim in Mississippi threatened to murder non-Muslim hospital staff after making a series of bomb threats. A Muslim shooter was behind the killing of a Philadelphia cop in March.

In February in California, two Muslims got 25 years each for planning to kill Americans. In January, a Muslim teen in Portland, Oregon was accused of threatening to blow up a store “in the name of Allah.” Also in January, a Muslim cab driver from Virginia was added to the FBI’s ‘Most Wanted Terrorists’ list. And in Washington, D.C. in November, a knife-wielding Muslim slashed a woman at Union Station, and then charged at a police officer.

New York City, as always, was a particular target. A New York City subway motorman called for an Islamic State (ISIS) attack in an unhinged rant. In November, an NYPD undercover officer foiled a jihad bomb plot in New York City. In February, three Muslims were arrested in New York City for conspiring to support ISIS. They targeted Obama, the FBI, and the police.

In June, other Muslims from Florida were charged with devising yet another jihad mass murder bomb plot in New York City. They had also been also charged with attempting to murder U.S. marshals while screaming “Allahu akbar.” Also in June, a Muslim student in New York was found to have plotted to bomb a New York City landmark. That same month, five Muslims were arrested in connection with a Brooklyn ISIS plot. Taking Sharia into his own hands, a Muslim brutally beat a gay couple in a New York City restaurant.

Likewise targeting gays was a “strict Muslim” from Seattle who was charged with murder and terrorism. Ali Muhammad Brown was charged with murdering two gay men in Seattle and then killing a random teen in New Jersey. Before that, Brown had been prosecuted after the FBI investigated a Muslim group that was suspected of supporting foreign jihadists. This devout Muslim is also a registered sex offender for crimes against a 6-year-old girl, the same age as Aisha when Muhammad “married” her.

The Islamic State throughout 2015 continued to win the allegiance of Muslims in the U.S. A senior female Islamic State recruiter turned out to be a student from Seattle. A Muslim in Minneapolis was charged threatening to kill FBI officials if they didn’t free six Muslims who were being held in connection with an Islamic State case. Also in Minnesota, a Muslim refugee from Somalia was arrested for aiding ISIS. In September, yet another Muslim in Minnesota became the third to plead guilty to joining Islamic State; five more are facing trial.

A Muslim who was arrested in New York City said: “I’m ready to die for the Caliphate.” In New Jersey, an ISIS-supporting Muslim teen was charged in a plot targeting the 9/11 Memorial. In Philadelphia, a Muslim teen with 57 Twitter accounts was arrested for aiding and abetting ISIS. A Muslim in Arizona was charged with supporting ISIS.

A Muslim in Ohio was charged with providing material support to the Islamic State. In May, two Muslims were arrested in California on their way to join ISIS. One had said: “It would be a blessing to fight for the cause of Allah.” In March, a Muslim on the Harvard campus was discovered to be raising money for the Islamic State’s “charity.”

In September, ISIS posted photos, names, and addresses of US soldiers, and threatened: “Theres gonna be attack this month on soldiers in America.” Instead, ISIS-supporting Muslims murdered American civilians in San Bernardino in December. Islamic State-supporting Muslims were arrested in March in Illinois. They had been planning another Fort Hood-style jihad massacre at Fort Riley.

A Muslim teen in Virginia was jailed for more than 11 years after being convicted of working on social media for the Islamic State. In Upstate New York, a Muslim pizza shop owner was charged with recruiting for the Islamic State. A Muslim in New Jersey was arrested for organizing a “small army” of ISIS fighters in his home state and in New York as well. Another Muslim in New York who was arrested for joining Islamic State said that its murders were justified because “the victims were not Muslims.”

A young Muslim married couple in Mississippi was charged for trying to wage jihad alongside the Islamic State. The New York Times was “shocked” and “perplexed” that this young couple went jihad.
Other jihadis remained active as well. In December, a Muslim who had become a U.S. citizen was charged with helping a Syrian rebel group that is linked to al-Qaeda. A Muslim engineer at a U.S. defense contractor got eight years in prison for giving details on U.S. jets to Iran. In Washington, D.C., a Muslim was charged with fundraising and recruiting for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan. And reminding us that all this is not new, a Muslim cleric from the U.K. who plotted years ago to build a jihad-terror training camp in Oregon was sentenced.

Converts to Islam were active in the jihad. In Kansas, a convert to Islam pled guilty to a WMD suicide plot against the Wichita Airport, aimed at inflicting “maximum carnage.” Another convert to Islam from Kansas was accused of plotting to detonate a jihad bomb at the Fort Riley military base for the Islamic State.

And yet another Muslim convert, the son of a police captain in Boston, was charged with plotting Islamic State jihad attacks on a college campus. He had planned to put “explosives filled with black powder, nails, ball bearings and glass, in places where large numbers of people congregate, like college cafeterias.”

The Muslim who plotted to plant weapons of mass destruction on a Florida beach, Harlem Suarez, was also a convert to Islam. He threatened to “cook American[s]…in cages” and boasted: “We will destroy America,” “We will raise our black flag on top of your White House.” In Ohio, yet another convert to Islam was indicted on charges of supporting the Islamic State.

All these arrests don’t dampen the enthusiasm of these converts for committing murder in the cause of their new religion. A young American convert to Islam who is in prison for his role in a bomb plot against Barack Obama and Washington, D.C. landmarks said: 
“We are waiting for the perfect moment.” He also said: “I’m very dedicated to establish the Sharia in America, to wage war against non-Muslims,” and: “We are indeed here in America…we’re in each and every state.”

They do indeed seem to be everywhere, and more are coming: In a harbinger of things to come, a Muslim “refugee” in Michigan was found to have lied about his ties to the Islamic State. In Brooklyn, also in January, a Muslim was charged with orchestrating a truck bomb that killed 5 U.S. soldiers.

The most catastrophic failure of our refugee resettlement and intelligence apparatuses came on December 2 in San Bernardino, when devout Muslims cold-bloodedly murdered fourteen innocent Christians and Jews at a Christmas party. This was a catastrophic intel failure because all roads from the jihad attack on our American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) free speech event in May in Garland, Texas led to San Bernardino. The jihadis in both cases had the same MO, followed the same pattern, and even had the same contacts. Both events – our Muhammad Cartoon Contest and the San Bernardino Christmas party — offended Muslims. Both events violated the sharia: one was an art exhibit with depictions of Muhammad in art and literature over the past 1400 years, and the other celebrated a Christian holiday. Both deeply offensive to Muslims.

The jihadis in both attacks trained at shooting ranges. The jihadis in both attacks were also “radicalized” long before they plotted and executed that jihad.
Both attacks were Islamic State (ISIS) attacks in America. Both jihadis, Ibrahim Simpson at Garland and Syed Rizwan Farook in San Bernardino, were linked to American ISIS recruiter Mohammed Abdullahi Hassan, also known as Mujahid Miski. Why Obama’s FBI and counter-terror agencies didn’t make his capture a priority is deeply disturbing.

Even more disturbing is that the Garland Muslims and the San Bernardino Muslims were both known to law enforcement and both were of concern, but law enforcement officials did nothing, either. The Garland jihadi Ibrahim Simpson and the San Bernardino jihad Syed Rizwan Farook both attended mosque daily, and were very religious, and then their mosques in both cases covered for them, downplaying their presence there.

The San Bernardino jihadi considered an attack in 2011. He visited 11 school cafeterias, scouting out a target for his massacre. He should have been on the radar of law enforcement officials in 2015. But instead of pursuing all this, the Obama administration nixed a probe into the Southern California jihadists. Adding to the intel failure was the failure of our refugee intake process: San Bernardino jihad murderer Tashfeen Malik was vetted by five different government agencies – and none of them discovered her extensive jihadi ties and loyalties. This is more of the poison fruit of the denial of jihad by Obama administration officials.

That denial was also operating at full strength after jihadis attacked out event in Garland in May. Instead of discussing the jihad on free speech, politicians, pundits and commentators who should have known better, including Donald Trump, Bill O’Reilly and Laura Ingraham, attacked me for violating Sharia blasphemy laws instead of attacking the jihadis for trying to kill me for free speech. 

What got lost in the post-Garland jihad shooting arguing and sharia-compliant rhetoric, is the simple fact that ISIS is here. Islamic terrorism is here, and it will only get worse. An informant in the Garland jihad attack said in August that there were between 50 and 80 more Muslim terrorists out there, ready to strike. Shutting up the few who speak candidly and openly about jihad terror will only make us all more unsafe.

Islamic jihadists kept trying to shut me up. A 2017 trial was set for two Muslims who plotted to behead me in the wake of the Garland event. They were indicted on charges that included material support for the Islamic State. After this plot was foiled, Muslims were still baying for my blood: an ISIS jihadist tweeted out my home address as he issued numerous calls for my death.

Yet the denial was still in force on July 16, a Muslim named Muhammad Abdulazeez murdered four Marines and a sailor at a Navy-Marine reserve center in Chattanooga. While the media and law enforcement searched for a motive, it came out that Abdulazeez was a follower of the late American Imam Anwar Awlaki, who was involved in numerous jihad plots in the U.S. His family practiced polygamy and was steeped in Jew-hatred. His father sexually assaulted his wife and beat his son, and said he wanted to take another wife because it was “allowed under Islamic law.” Topping it all off was the fact that the jihad mass murderer had worked at an Ohio nuclear power plant.

While all that was happening, the jihad was advancing on U.S. campuses. In November, ISIS warned American colleges and universities: “We are coming.” But jihadis were already there: in November, a Muslim named Faisal Mohammad went on a stabbing spree at the University of California Merced, while smiling the whole time. Law enforcement sources said that Mohammad was on a terror watch list, and that the college had been warned of the threat he posed. They did nothing, of course.
Meanwhile, non-violent Sharia incursions continued. Minnesota Muslims declared in May: “We want Sharia.” A Muslima stewardess refused to serve alcohol, and predictably, Hamas-CAIR claims the airline violated her Constitutional rights.

On campus, a leading college Muslim group, the Muslim Student Association, rejected a moment of recognition resolution for 9/11, saying it was “Islamophobic.” The Muslim Student Association also came out against the already weak and watered-down “Countering Violent Extremism” measures.

Outrage over this was dismissed as “Islamophobia.” A professor complained to Catholic University that there were too many crosses on campus for Muslim students to pray. One Muslim student declared: “my Islamic faith prevents me from paying interest on my student loans.” Swarthmore students heckled and abused a victim of Egyptian torture. And when I spoke at Brooklyn College in April, Muslim students made the one-finger sign of allegiance to the Islamic State and shouted out their support for it.

The Islamization of public schools also continued. Minnesota high school students sang “Allahu akbar” at their Christmas concert. In Virginia, students practiced calligraphy by writing “There is no god but Allah” in Arabic. A Florida public school forced kids to learn and recite an Islamic prayer, and to make Islamic prayer rugs. In North Carolina, Pitts Public School parents were apoplectic over Muslim propaganda and open proselytizing for Islam in class. A shocked mom with children in another school called a TV news station after reading the pro-Islam answers on her son’s worksheet.

When a New Jersey school district declined to add Eid to the list of school holidays (only because they hadn’t been given sufficient notice), furious Muslim parents shouted, “We’re going to be the majority soon!” In Minnesota, the opening of a charter school was derailed after questions were raised about its possible ties to a Muslim Brotherhood group. In Pennsylvania, scores of teachers bowed to Allah, celebrated Islam, and visited a local mosque to learn more about Islam. In San Diego, a high school piloted halal school lunches. An upstate New York school recited the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic: “One Nation Under Allah.”

An Ohio public school hosted “A Covered Girl Challenge,” asking students to wear hijab for a day. NP3 High School in California observed “Hijab Day.” In Denver, schoolgirls were forced to wear headscarves and were told that their ankles “must be covered” during a school trip to a local mosque. 

In New York City, Mayor “Red Bill” de Blasio announced that he was going to close City schools for Muslim holidays. In the wake of Muslim demands for their holidays to be days off from school, a Maryland School District decided to scrap Jewish and Christian holidays. Meanwhile, Muslim students who harassed Jewish students in an Arizona high school. Muslim cleric and charter school leader Fethullah G├╝len was captured on video saying: “Explode yourselves like a bomb against the U.S.”

In Maine, a head coach was forced to resign after criticizing Islam on Facebook. In Massachusetts, a school retaliated against students for parental opposition to its pro-Islam, anti-Israel propaganda. A California school district banned middle schoolers from drawing Muhammad. In Seattle, Muslims demanded that a teacher be fired for showing Muhammad cartoons. Parents of students at a Tennessee middle school were outraged that their children were assigned to write the Shahada: “Allah is the only God, Muhammad is his prophet.” Suspiciously, Tennessee school districts refused to comply with Open Records Requests that would have revealed the contents of their lessons about Islam.

We have seen the increasing Islamization of public-school curricula. History lessons in Islam are dawah – proselytizing for Islam. The Saudis have bought large public school publishers. Islamic supremacists have hijacked the Department of Education, the Gates Foundation, Pearson and other textbook publishing companies and the testing companies. They have also hijacked our public-school curricula, and textbooks (i.e., Common Core).

Enough is enough. It’s time we fought back against this scourge and reclaimed our schools – and our society. We should see less jihad in 2016, but instead, it is certain to be more. We need a president who understands the threat and is not afraid to fight the enemy. AFDI has proposed an 18-point platform to defeat the enemy. Send it to your Presidential candidate, Congressmen and Senators. It’s must be adopted in order to win the war on freedom.

Trumpet Has It Right

Saturday, December 12, 2015

By Paul R. Hollrah
 
 
The fight for global dominion by the greatest evil in history, the radical forces of Islam, has been going on for more than 1200 years.  In 732 AD the Muslim Army, moving to occupy Paris, was defeated by Charles Martell at the Battle of Tours.  Muslims retreated to their own part of the world for brief periods, but continued their efforts to expand their empire until the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1918. The years that followed were but a brief respite. 
 
Islam's conquest of the habitable portions of the Earth has been going on for 1,400 years.  For most of that time the conflicts have been limited geographically to Europe and the Middle East.  But now, for the first time, Islam is attempting to invade and conquer the United States by using our freedomsour laws, and our tradition of openness against us.  
 
Unfortunately, far too many Americans, focused as they are on the exigencies of their daily lives, are so insulated from reality that they appear not to notice.  They appear totally unaware that the Muslim world is rapidly imposing what the Quran refers to as hijrah, or jihad by emigration.  The mass migration of Muslims from Africa and the Middle East to Europe, the British Isles, and North America is exactly what Mohammed had in mind when he wrote, "And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance, and whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah (Sura 4:100)."
 
With the creation of the ISIS caliphate in Iraq and Syria, millions of refugees move westward into Europe, Scandinavia, and the British Isles, while hordes of black African Muslims sail north across the Mediterranean on anything that floats, attempting to invade Spain, France, and Italy. Many of those on board who are identified as non-Muslims are tossed into the sea and left to drown.  Yes, these are the "peace-loving" refugees that Barack Obamaliberals and Democrats, and the Republican congressional leadership expect us to welcome with open arms.  And while the mass migration of Musliminto Western Europe will likely destroy the age-old cultures of those countries in a few short years, it is clear that the United States is their ultimate target.       
 
So who are these people?  An April 17, 2015, article in The Counter Jihad Report, by Y.K. Cherson, provides some startling statistics on Islamic terrorism.  Cherson tells us that, in 2011, Sunni Muslims accounted for the greatest number of terrorist attacks and fatalities for the third year in a row.  Over 5,700 incidents were committed by Sunnis, accounting for nearly 56% of all attacks and about 70% of 12,533 fatalities.  Cherson quotes a U.S. State Department report which tells us that, in 2013, a total of 9,707 terror attacks occurred worldwide, resulting in more than 17,800 deaths and more than 32,500 casualties.  Just three Muslim terror groups… the Taliban, ISIS, and Boko Haram… were responsible for 5,655 (31.8%) of the 17,800 deaths.  
 
So what is it that motivates them to come to the United States?  Why do they want to come here?

Since there is little chance that a large Muslim population will ever make a positive contribution to our culture or to our wellbeingwe are forced to ask why they would want to live in a land where they are not wanted or needed.  They have made it abundantly clear that they have no intention of assimilating into American culture; they want only to transplant their Muslim culture in the fertile soil of the U.S.  Americans will never allow that to happen, so why do they insist on a confrontation that can only result in protracted violence and bloodshed?
 
In a speech titled the "First State of Homeland Security Address" at the National Defense University on December 7, 2015, Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, had some sobering words for his audience.  He reminded his audience that, as recently as his 2015 State of the Union Address, Barack Obama assured us that "the shadow of crisis has passed" in the war against radical Islam.
 
Nevertheless, McCaul reported that, in the past year, the FBI has undertaken investigations into more than 1,000 cases of home-grown terrorists, across all 50 states.  As a resultthe FBI has identified 19 ISIS-connected terror plots in the U.S., including plans to murder numbers of tourists on Florida beaches, plans to set off pipe bombs on Capitol Hill, plans to bomb New York City's famous landmarks, and plans to live-stream a massive attack on an American college campus. Still, many Americans and most political leaders, of both parties, appear blithely unconcerned about the immediacy of the danger… apparently more concerned about being politically correct than they are about the life-or-death nature of the threat.
 
In previous columns I have attempted to draw attention to the inability of many Americans to intellectually process the clear and present danger posed by Muslim immigration.  I have reminded readers of estimates that only 5% (one of every twenty) of the world's 1.4 billion Muslims are radicalized.  That statistic may give liberals and Democrats a degree of comfort, but the rest of us are clearly not comfortable with the idea of some 75 million suicide bombers and potential mass murderers running around amongst us with hate in their hearts for non-Muslims.
  
To put that number into perspective, we might recall that, at the height of WW II, the combined uniformed forces of Germany, Japan, and Italy numbered only 34.4 million… and, unlike their  Muslim counterparts, they were all people who treasured life over death. 
 
To make the threat of radical Islam a bit more understandable for all those gullible Americans who profess no fear of Muslim immigration, I've asked how they might react if we offered them a bowl containing 100 M&M candies, but with the admonition that five of the pieces were toxic (poisonous).  How many pieces of candy would they eat?  
 
The point is, Islam is the only religious movement on Earth that proposes to extend its control to every corner of the Earth by terror, murder, and oppression.  And since the 95% of Muslims who are either "moderate" or "un-radicalized" appear unwilling to play an active role in keeping their radicalized brethren in check, we have no alternative but to prohibit them from residing within the civilized nations of the Earth.  That is precisely whDonald Trump has suggested that the United States call at least a temporary halt to all Muslim immigration.
The reaction to his suggestion was swift and predictable.  Liberals, Democrats, and members of the mainstream media were quick to denounce him, while members of his own party called upon him to withdraw from the Republican presidential primaries.  The most powerful Republican in America, House Speaker Paul Ryan, took the unusual step of calling a press conference to denounce Trump, saying, "Normally, I do not comment on what's going on in the presidential election.  I will take an exception today.  This is not conservatism.  What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for and, more importantly, it is not what this country stands for."  So how will they react when the polls show that the people agree with Trump?  What all those naysayers apparently fail to understand is that most Americans do not want Muslims living in their neighborhoods, nor do they want to increase our existing Muslim population.  
One would think that members of Congress would have at least a minimal understanding of current immigration law.  For example, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, Public Law 82-414, Section 212(a), provides no less than 31 conditions under which "classes of aliens shall be ineligible to receive visas and shall be excluded from admission into the United States."
Included among these, Section 212(a)(19) bars entry to "any alien who seeks to procure, or has sought to procure, or has procured a visa or other documentation, or seeks to enter the United States by fraud, or by willfully misrepresenting a material fact."  Can all of the "refugees" now seeking asylum in the U.S. provide indisputable evidence that all of the information they have provided is factual and verifiable?  Section 212(a)(27) bars all aliens "who the consular officer or the Attorney General knows, or has reason to believe, seek to enter the United States solely, principally, or incidentally, to engage in activities which would be prejudicial to the public interest, or endanger the welfare, safety, or security of the United States."
 
Section 212(a)(28) of the Act denies access to all aliens "who are anarchists, or who have at any time been members of or affiliated with any organization that advocates or teaches the overthrow of the government of the United States by force, violence, or other unconstitutional means." There are many more provisions of the Act under which Muslims could be barred from entering the United States.  This is precisely what Donald Trump is suggesting and it is precisely this law that Jimmy Carter used in his Executive Order of April 7, 1980, in which he invalidated the visas of all Iranians in the country and prohibited the issuance of new visas to Iranians for the duration of the Iranian hostage crisis.  
 
In its editorial of December 8, 2015, the New York Times sided with Trump, saying, "As the (Supreme Court) observed in its 1977 decision in Fiallo v. Bell'In the exercise of its broad power over immigration and naturalization, Congress regularly makes rules that would be unacceptable if applied to citizens.'
 
"In the context of noncitizens seeking initial entry into the United States, due process protections don't apply, either. Indeed, contrary to the conventional understanding, President Trump could implement the scheme on his own, without Congress's approval. The Immigration and Nationality Act gives the president the authority to suspend the entry of 'any class of aliens' on his finding that their entry would be 'detrimental to the interests of the United States"  
 
While many may wish to come to America, for good or for ill, we have no obligation… legal, moral, or economic… to take into our country, people whose values are totally foreign to our own.  And while the politically correctthe mainstream media, and establishment Republicans may disagree with Trump's suggestion, they will soon find that it is they who are on the outside, looking in.  The people are with Trump.

Why did Barack Hussein Obama make the famous ‘One-Finger ISIS’ salute at the African Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C.?

A photo taken at last August’s U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C. might shed considerable light. It shows Barack Hussein Obama flashing the one-finger affirmation of the Islamic State to dozens of African delegates.

??????????????????????

American Thinker  The Associated Press took this astonishing photo as the African dignitaries joined Obama, who hosted the event, in a State Department auditorium for a group photograph.  It was published in an article in Britain’s Daily Mail, and it was the only use ever of the photo.

The one-finger display is the distinctive Muslim gang sign (most notably the sign of ISIS): The index finger points straight up while the thumb wraps underneath and presses against the digital phalange of the middle finger.  The remaining fingers are squeezed against the palm in order to highlight the extended forefinger.

The extended finger is symbolic of the one-God concept of Muhammad and is understood by all believers to be a symbolic shahada, the Muslim affirmation of faith: There is but one God and Muhammad is his messenger.

Thus when believers stick their index finger in the air, they demonstrate they are partisans of Muhammad’s God concept.  And they also affirm their belief in Muhammad’s claim he was the interface between God and man. They also demonstrate they are part of the umma, the exclusive transtribal supertribe of believers that Muhammad started 1,400 years ago.

With his forefinger in the air, Obama affirmed his membership in this tribe.

African dignitaries understood, and a range of reactions can be detected among the ones who observed the gesture: amusement, surprise, curiosity, disapproval, contempt.  

Note the reactions of Abdelilah Berkirane, the prime minister of Morroco pictured just behind Obama’s left shoulder, and Ibrahim Boubacas Keita, the president of Mali in white garb and hat. They are Muslims through and through, and they are all smiles. They knew what Obama’s upright forefinger meant.

The reaction of Togo president Faure Gnassingbe, at the top row second to the left, is less approving.  Through his face you can read the mind of this Sorbonne- and George Washington University educated leader. His mind is screaming, “You gotta be kidding!”

Faure Gnassingbe
Faure Gnassingbe

Gnassingbe’s country is squeezed between Benin and the Ivory Coast and is not far from Nigeria and its Boko Haram plague — perhaps a two-hour flight in a slow Cessna from Togo’s capital to the Nigerian capital, less than an hour in something faster.  

At the time of the Washington conference, Boko Haram’s leader Abubakar Shekau had just declared Borno State in northeastern Nigeria as the seat of his caliphate.  Massacres of entire villages were taking place; only a few months earlier nearly three hundred girls were abducted from a Borno secondary school.

 

Togo has seven million people, 50 percent animists, 30 percent Christian.  The remainder are Muslims, part of the umma. Gnassingbe and all other non-Muslims of Togo have reason to worry about radicalization of some of these members of the transtribal supertribe of Muhammad who reside among them. And so his look of disdain. “You gotta be kidding.”



Maybe it was Obama’s idea of a joke, but that is unlikely.  The finger in the air was a position statement brazenly stated.  His entire administration has been a promotion of Islam at home and abroad, and just cataloging the evidence would fill a book.  He has made this country cozy for Islam, from ordering NASA to make Muslims feel good about themselves to calling ISIS beheading victim Peter Kassig by the Muslim name that he had adopted in the vain hope of saving his life.



If only Obama’s coziness were limited to such gestures, but from the very beginning of his administration, he labored to topple the strongman governments that had kept a lid on Islamic extremism:  Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen.  Overthrowing the Syrian government was also part the program, not yet achieved but still possible.

The methodology of each was a tactic from old-school radicalism: stir up domestic trouble that triggers a crackdown, then use the reaction to discredit the government and as a pretext for stirring up greater cycles of trouble until the targeted regime is replaced.

Obama is comfortable with Islam’s extreme.  He arms such people throughout the Middle East.  He has let them into our government.  He supported the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muhammad Morsi as the replacement for Hosni Mubarak, a staunch US ally and enemy of the Muslim Brotherhood, and threatened and bullied Egypt when a massive revolt replaced Morsi with a religious moderate.

The thread of all of these efforts was the reestablishment of the Islamic caliphate, the line of successors of Muhammad that ended nearly a century ago with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.  This has always been a Muslim Brotherhood objective.  In their grandiose plans, the reestablished caliphate would stretch across the Middle East with Jerusalem as its capital.

The glory of Islam resurrected!  These people aspire to world domination, and the caliphate would serve as the base for an ever-expanding war on the world until domination is achieved.  That was always the goal of their role model.  Muhammad ordered his followers to make Islam the only religion — to create a universal umma.  As with Obama, they are just following orders.

There is nothing in Obama’s head that is American.  He is an antithetical American, a polar opposite of its values that he is routinely undermining.  He is an unabashed member of the transtribal supertribe that Muhammad created 1,400 years ago; he is of the umma, not of America.  His finger in the air at the African Leaders’ Conference is unambiguous evidence.
