We were told this week that the War on Terror is over now. An unnamed State Department official told National Journal, “The war on terror is over. Now that we have killed most of Al Qaeda, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into Al Qaeda see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”
What a relief! But wait a minute…aren’t the people who are declaring it’s over the same people who have refused to believe there even is/ was a War on Terror, and in fact, even wiped that term from their State Department vocabulary? What are these “legitimate means of expression” that those who once were attracted to Al Qaeda tactics likely to embrace now?
Enter the Muslim Brotherhood. When I saw Brigitte Gabriel speak several weeks ago, she called this organization the “mother ship” of all terrorist groups, which a couple of decades ago, laid out their plans for America in what she says is called “The Project”. It details the MB’s plan to infiltrate the West in order to topple it by taking on the appearance of moderation (think terrorists in suits and ties). Although both parties are to blame for this, no one has done more than Barack Hussein Obama to legitimize the radical ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood and welcome them into the highest levels of our government.
In case you think that statement is just the off-the-cuff ramblings of a right-wing conservative blogger, check out what Tarek Fatah, a far-left Canadian Muslim (and liberal Democrat Marxist) who campaigned for Obama told an audience in Toronto last summer: “I want you to focus and I hope you can talk to your families and your friends and your neighbors that when someone says that there is a penetration of Jihadi Islamists within Canadian society, do not dismiss it as some right-wing xenophobic racist rant. Today in the White House there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama’s policy.”
He went on to name Rashad Hussain, an American attorney, and U.S. Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an intergovernmental group with 57 member Muslim states (and an openly anti-Israel organization); Dalia Mogahed, his speech writer who comes from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (the brains behind his speeches praising the “Arab Spring”?); and “another woman, an academic, was appointed in that circle” (but he didn’t say the name of this woman). His full remarks can be found here.
Fatah forgot to name another MB-connected White House staffer: Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff and aide to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Yes, right there in the State Department, is a woman who was American-born, and Saudi Arabia-raised. Incidentally, both of her parents were educators who were members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
If we had a Republican president, this would be more than enough to have the media and Democrats in Congress screaming for impeachment…but under this president, all is well. Even more troubling is that the above people aren’t the only ones who have been or currently are in high-level offices in the Obama Administration that have connections to terrorist organizations (those affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood as listed in “The Project” & identified by our State Department as aiding terrorism in the past!). Here’s a few more names: Arif Alikahn, Salam al-Marayati, Mohamed Elibiary, Imam Mohamed Magid, and Eboo Patel. The Blaze website has more information on these characters, as well as a link to a free documentary on this subject entitled, “Rumors of War III: Target U.S.”**WARNING: Everyone should watch this because you won’t see it on the news, but it will scare the h@#ll out of you!
In an ironic twist, this “ending” of the War on Terror this week came right before the 207th anniversary of our first—and often forgotten—victory against radical Islamists on the “shores of Tripoli”. Back then, we had a president in Thomas Jefferson that had not only studied the Koran as a young law student—he understood that its teachings were a threat to free people everywhere. So, after years of being bullied on the high seas by the Barbary Coast pirates—and after attempts to appease them failed, as they always will—Jefferson sent the USS Constitution into the Mediterranean Sea to deal with the thugs. On April 27, 1805, the Marines beat down the enemy forces and the event was later immortalized in the Marine Corps Hymn. President Jefferson knew the enemy, and he knew the only way to deal with them is to defeat them in battle. There isn’t any negotiating with an enemy that wants to destroy your life, and you certainly don’t invite them into your house. It was true then, and it’s still true today.
“God is our objective; the Koran is our law; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”- the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood
