The denial must end. The willful ignorance must end. The United States government must stop cooperating with its own enemies. The media must stop covering for Islamic jihadists and demonizing those who oppose them. In an alarming new book by Robert Spencer labeled Arab Winter Comes to America, the infiltration of Islamic jihadists in our country has already happened at the hands of so called “moderate” Muslims.
Spencer elaborates, “the belief that Islam is a peaceful religion and that Islamic terrorists have twisted that faith to unrecognizable extremes” is a false interpretation that surrounds todays narrative regarding Islam. The greater overall threat this misconception poses is neglected because of fear and outright denial to acknowledge what our enemy truly is. The more we lie to ourselves and allow our government to lie to us and the media, the more we enable terrorists to become embolden.
“We cannot possible defeat an enemy whom we refuse to understand, refuse to study, refuse to listen to because he explains why he is our enemy in terms that we can’t bear to hear” must end. The public discourse in our country that regards Islam as no different from Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and others is a lie perpetrated against an American public whom is unaware of who their enemy is and what their goals truly are.
The enemy is the terrorist organization called the Muslim Brotherhood. Their goal is to eliminate and destroy Western civilization from within. The document that reveals how to achieve this goal is labeled An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America. The 18-page document written in 1991 by Mohamed Akram, a Muslim Brotherhood operative, reveals that the Brotherhood has a “civilizational alternative” for infiltrating non-islamic forms of society and governance for the “global Islamic state”.
Their method is to claim to only be “moderate” Muslims as they insulate themselves into centers of power within the United States.The document further states, “members in the U.S. must understand that their work in America is a grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the western civilization from within”. Under the deception of claiming to be “moderate” and not “extremist”, Islamic jihadists have successfully infiltrated both our government and public discourse to extreme extents.
We are now at a point in which critiquing Islam, on a factual basis, is to be labeled Islamophobic. Coincidentally the term Islamophobia was first introduced in a 1991 Runnymede Trust Report and defined as “unfounded hostility towards Muslims, and therefore fear or dislike of all or most Muslims”. Remember that 1991 was the same year that the Muslim Brotherhood released its “General Strategic Goal” that extensively outlined a way to shift public narrative under disguise. Today, Muslim advocacy groups have used the term to demonize and marginalize virtually all forms of resistance.
The most influential and largest Muslim advocacy proponent in the United States is the Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood group CAIR. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is the epitome of Mohamed Akrams “global jihad” vision. Their sphere of influence effectively changed what constitutes terrorism. In 2011, after being placed under enormous pressure by journalists and advocacy groups like CAIR, the FBI and military purged their training materials of what CAIR considered “biased and inaccurate information about Islam”.
John Brennan, who was then the Assistant to the President on National Security for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, detailed the specific actions that were undertook, including “collecting all training materials that contain cultural or religious content, including all information related to Islam or Muslims”. In reality, this material wouldn’t just be collected; it would be purged of everything advocates had found offensive. “That is” in the words of Spencer, “any honest discussion of how Islamic jihadists use Islamic teachings to justify violence”.
Today, what we are seeing is a resurgence of terrorism here and around the world that is a direct result of the influence Muslim advocacy groups have had in diminishing the relevancy of Islam which justifies violence for terrorism. It is why terrorists today feel much more embolden to freely commit violence. For instance, besides political implications, terrorists were able to strike our embassy in Benghazi, Libya. It is also why Hillary Clinton’s State Department didn’t list Boko Haram as a terrorist organization. Boko Haram has claimed responsibility in kidnapping over 300 school girls in Nigeria and is now labeled an Islamic terrorist group.
In failing to call a spade a spade, Spencer concludes, “the obfuscation of a genuine threat and slander of those who call attention to it” will continue to embolden terrorist groups in their global jihad of Islamic supremacism.
