When I was a young boy we often visited my mother’s parents. I was fascinated with a carved figure of three monkeys on Grandpa Stark’s desk. Each had its hands on its head: one over its eyes, one over its mouth and one over its ears. The title of this little black figure was “See no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil”—not necessarily in that order. I recall it being a vague moral admonishment to us humans: don’t be conveyors of wicked thoughts.
Soon after the Arab Islamist attack on America in 2001 and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security we were advised: “If you see something, say something.” We were never told what we should be aware of or how to convey the information, but most of us understood that anything “suspicious” would likely have to do with Islamist terrorists. Soon references to this evil were not seen or heard. It became politically incorrect and, thus, “hate speech” to point out suspicious Muslim activities.
It took many years of government and media hiding the truth from us—we were told “Not all Muslims are terrorists” (See no evil)—but eventually we saw it was obvious all terrorists were Muslims and they killed indiscriminately, in surprise attacks for no apparent reason.
From 2008 to 2016 there was a virtual blackout of information from government and media (but I repeat myself) about the subversive activities of the Muslim Brotherhood (“the leading Islamic jihadist organization in the world”); some of its terrorist groups such as ISIS, al Qaeda and Hamas; and the underground work of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) here in America.
The FBI and some police departments were investigating these groups and imams preaching Jihad in mosques, but their files and reports were soon hushed and hidden by the Obama administration.
But some rational, reasoning American patriots have been informing us of the evil about which we weren’t allowed to see, hear or talk about. One book exposing “the government’s submission to Jihad,” titled: SEE SOMETHING SAY NOTHING by a former DHS officer shows “how deeply the submission, denial and deception run.”
Another scary revelation in a book by a former agent of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations is titled: MUSLIM MAFIA. The author working inside CAIR found that they planted spies inside law enforcement agencies and congressional offices; have close ties to al-Qaida and Hamas; it is a front for the Muslim Brotherhood; and is involved with members of terrorist cells in Washington, D. C.
Andrew McCarthy in 1993-95 led the prosecution of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and others for bomb plots in New York City. At first he believed the government claim to “read nothing into the fact that all the men in this terrorist cell were Muslims; that their actions were not representative of any religion or belief system”—that Islam is a religion of peace.
That is, until he studied the Koran and heard the Sheikh quote Islamic law (his expertise). According to McCarthy, “the Blind Sheikh’s summons to jihad was rooted in a coherent interpretation of Islamic doctrine.” Unfortunately, our government officials won’t root out this evil because, as McCarthy says, they are “stubbornly unwilling to deal with the reality of Islam, our leaders have constructed an Islam of their very own.” McCarthy has written two books on this subject: Willful Blindness: a Memoir of the Jihad and Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotages America.
Hopefully, this willful irresponsibility to public safety will change under the Trump administration, but his domestic enemies ignore our real threats and create fake news to make our president look bad.
One of the most frightening documents I have seen is the Muslim Brotherhood’s master plan to destroy America and resettle the Islamic world here. It is called An Explanatory Memorandum of the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America—what the Brotherhood calls “Civilizational Jihad.”
The plan was discovered by the FBI in 2004 in a raid on a terrorist house in Annandale, Virginia. It was used as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing trial in 2008. (An abridged, annotated copy of the Muslim Brotherhood plan is being distributed free by Secure Freedom because the American media will not inform our citizens of this threat.)
Another good source of information by several independent reporters about the Islamic jihadist threat to America is presented in the May 2017 issue of Whistleblower magazine (WND.com): How Islam is Secretly Transforming America.
In the cable news networks’, as far as I know, only FOX News has interviewed American Muslims who have warned us about the subversive jihadist threats; and a few commentators, independent journalists and columnists have figured out what we face from the Islamic world–and courageously speak and write about it.
Syndicated columnist Cal Thomas has written that we have “little reason to trust Saudi Arabia” just after President Trump met with the Islamic-Arab-American Council in the Kingdom. Westerners who know the cultural history of this region would probably agree. Thomas says Trump’s speech was “based on faulty western premise,” that “radical Muslims can be persuaded to abandon the goal of establishing a worldwide caliphate.”
Thomas reminds us that 15 of the airline highjackers in 2001 were Saudis and that duplicity is a Middle Eastern cultural characteristic—“Deceitfulness in speech or conduct.” Telling different people something different or acting differently with different people is duplicitous. It can be observed in the classic film “Lawrence of Arabia” amongst the Arab tribes interacting with the British.
Thomas also notes that Saudi Arabia harbors Wahabism, “an austere form of Islam based on a literal interpretation of the Koran.” He asks the “central question”—has their theological worldview changed, and if so, how did the ‘revelation’ come to them?
Pundit Charles Krauthammer more directly predicts that the American perennial pursuit of peace in the Middle East will fail—again. He, however, thinks that progress has been made because under Trump’s policy: “The appeasement of Iran is over.” In what Krauthammer calls the “Muslim civil war,” Obama’s “tilt toward Shiite Iran was spectacularly wrong.” The Islamic Arab alliance is Sunni Muslim. After eight years of U.S. policy “hovering between neglect and betrayal,” the Sunni Arabs are relieved to have America back, says Krauthammer.
Yet, he believes the hope of bringing peace to the Middle East is “well-worn nonsense.”
I tend to agree with Krauthammer on that point. We’ve been delusional on dealing with the Muslims for too long. It’s time we see, hear and speak the reality of Islamic evil. We can’t defeat their ideology because we haven’t the leaders who will confront it boldly and decisively. But we can keep them from invading our country and destroying our culture—if we muster the courage to support the proper leadership.
