The other 99%: Republicans who ignore Muslim Brotherhood threat

In lieu of the Republican National Convention today courtesy of Isaac, we bring you: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood – Andrew C. McCarthy – National Review Online.

The people have 435 representatives serving in the House and another hundred in the Senate. Of these 535, a total of 288 are Republicans — 241 and 47 in the lower and upper chambers, respectively. Of these, only five House conservatives — five — have had the fortitude to raise concerns about the Islamist connections of government officials entrusted with positions enabling them to shape U.S. policy.

Possibly six.

Think about that. Republicans purport to be the national-security party. For decades this claim was well founded, starting with Ronald Reagan’s clarity in seeing the Soviets as enemies to be defeated, not accommodated. President Reagan’s plan for the Cold War was, “We win, they lose,” and he pulled it off because he was not under any illusions about who “they” were.

But something happened to the GOP in the Bush years. For all the welcome understanding that Bill Clinton was wrong — that the jihad could not be indicted into submission — the Bush administration never learned a fundamental truth that Reagan knew only too well: You cannot defeat your enemies unless you understand them, and you cannot even begin to understand them if you are too craven to name them.

As they gather in Tampa for their quadrennial showcase, Republicans, but for the 1 percent, remain timorous on the subject of America’s enemies. Oh, they’ll tell you that we must confront “terrorism” and crack down on the “terrorists.” But that’s not much different from claiming to be against “burglary” and “burglars.” Terrorism is a vicious crime, but it becomes a national-security threat only when it is an instrument of an ideology that aims to destroy our country. What made the terrorist organizations armed and trained by the Soviets in the Sixties and Seventies a threat was the Soviets, not the terrorism.

America’s enemies are Islamic supremacists: Muslims adherent to a totalitarian interpretation of Islam who, like Soviet Communists, seek to impose their ideology throughout the world, very much including the United States. Terrorism is an offensive strategy they use, but it is only one arrow in the quiver. Its chief utility, moreover, is not that it will coerce surrender on its own; it is the atmosphere of intimidation it creates. That dramatically increases the effectiveness of the enemy’s several other offensive strategies — legal demands for concessions, media campaigns, infiltration of society’s major institutions, and influence operations against government.

The most disheartening thing about the modern Republican party’s dereliction — about its accommodation and empowerment of our enemies under the delusional guise of “Muslim outreach” — is that it flies in the face of the Bush Justice Department’s signal counterterrorism achievement.

That was the 2007–08 Holy Land Foundation case. For once, political correctness and the fear of being smeared as “Islamophobic” were shelved. In the course of convicting several Hamas operatives, prosecutors proved that the Muslim Brotherhood is engaged in a far-flung enterprise aimed, in the Brothers’ own words, at “eliminating and destroying” our way of life “from within” by means of “sabotage.” The Bush Justice Department not only showed that what the Brotherhood calls its “grand jihad” (or “civilization jihad”) is real; Justice shed light on the ideology that fuels this enterprise, and expressly identified many of the global Brotherhood’s accomplices.

Alas, this achievement is one today’s Republicans prefer to ignore. The party of Ronald Reagan would have worn it like a badge of honor. Today’s GOP would rather engage our enemies and call them our friends — not understand them, call them what they are, and defeat them. Today’s Beltway Republicans save their wrath for the occasional conservative — the messengers who embarrass them by illustrating how small the big time has made them.

Did you know, for example, that when the Republican establishment had its hissy fit over the inconvenient 1 percent — when John McCain and John Boehner led the shrieking over their five conservative colleagues’ purported scaremongering over Islamist influence-peddling — the fact that this influence-peddling effort exists had just been proved in court?

As Patrick Poole, one of few to cover the case, has observed, it is the biggest spy scandal you’ve never heard about. Right around the time McCain and Boehner were dressing down the 1 percent last month, Ghulam Nabi Fai was finally heading off to prison. He had pled guilty last December to acting as a secret foreign agent against our government.

In sum, Fai was paid millions of dollars over two decades by the Pakistani intelligence service to push its agenda through a D.C.-based front, the Kashmiri American Council. You haven’t heard much about it because it is a Muslim Brotherhood operation through and through, one that demonstrates exactly what the 1 percent is warning about.

Read through the evidence and unflinching support by Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups in the U.S. here. Conclusion:

Here’s the most alarming thing — the thing about our enemy being an enemy: Even after Fai pled guilty and was sentenced, the Muslim Brotherhood’s American infrastructure continued to support him ardently. As Poole reports, fundraising dinners in his honor were held by ISNA, the Muslim American Society (which is the Brotherhood’s quasi-official presence in the United States), and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR – which originated out of the Brotherhood’s now-defunct Islamic Association for Palestine and serves as an Islamist public-relations and lawfare arm). Mind you, Fai’s guilt is not in doubt; he pled guilty and agreed to a 26-page statement of facts detailing his operations against our country. Yet the Brothers stand by their man.

When the five House Republicans rose up to call for scrutiny of enemy efforts to influence our government, they were not speaking hypothetically. The effort is very real. And the enemy is now so brazen, so confident about the inroads it has made, that it publicly closes ranks around its operatives even after their treachery has been laid bare.

Republicans have had ample opportunity to stand with their intrepid 1 percent. Most of them are in hiding, though. The few who’ve spoken up have, like their Democratic counterparts, calculated that it’s more expedient to stand with the Muslim Brotherhood’s network than with those trying to expose the Muslim Brotherhood’s network.

And the top of the GOP ticket refuses to even address the issue stating it’s not a part of the campaign and selecting a speaker who ardently supports a Hamas-linked imam. Four more years either way?

  1. ~ Motto of the Muslim Brotherhood
    – Allah is our objective.
    – The Prophet is our leader.
    – Qur’an is our law.
    – Jihad is our way.
    – Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.
    Egypt is just the latest example of Muslim Brotherhood and its actions show how its speakers words are different than its actions.
    Look what is going on around the world, and in your own area. Where Sharia Law spreads and is followed, Freedom goes away.

    • CONTROL;Sharia is convenient to those powers that shape PUBLIC POLICY AND THEREFORE PUBLIC CONSENSUS AND THINKING.Sharia has much in common with other mind and economic control religions and movements;mainly Naziism and communism.This is the real reason for alleged complacency amongst law enforcement.SHARIA IS PART OF THE PLAN;REDUCE SHARIA TO LOWEST TERMS.CUT THRU THE GOBBILY-GOOK AND YOU WILL SEE IT IS ALL ABOUT CONTROL;ECONOMIC CONTROL WHICH LEADS TO THE RE-INSTITUTION OF MONARCHY.MAN’S OLDEST PROFESSION .Sharia controlling laws will manage the eastern part of the UNITED NATIONS EMPIRE while blending slowly with other forms or cousins of totalitarianism .Islam is for certain a main component of world government.Hitler’s plan is on track.with the MOSLEM BROTHERHOOD.CONGRESS IS NOTHING BUT A WHORE HOUSE OF SHADY MEN AND WOMEN.AMERICA HAS NO REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT EXCEPT ONE THAT REPRESENTS THE HIGHEST BIDDER.THE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO ACCEPT THIS THE SAME WAY THEY ARE BEING CONDITIONED TO ACCEPT SHARIA.RELENTLESS PROGRAMMING OF THE MIND AND RELENTLESS PERSECUTION OF THOSE WHO WILL NOT S.U.B.M.I.T…….”…AND HE CAUSED ALL TO RECEIVE A MARK OF OBEDIENCE SO THAT ONLY THOSE WHO SUBMITTED AND BECAME A MEMBER OF THE NEW SHARIA WORLD ORDER SHOULD HAVE EMPLOYMENT AND CONDUCT BIZZ.THE TRADEMARK OF ISLAM IS UPON YOU.ECONOMIC POWER IS REAL POWER.PAY THE YEARLY FEE OR ELSE;SHARIA FEE OF 666 UNITS.

      • Hitler loved islam because they hate Jews like he did. He actually had a division where he recruited muslims to fight.

        During World War II, hundreds of thousands of foreign peoples joined with Hitler’s legions to bring theirs people into special status in Hitler’s New Order. Tens of thousands among them were Muslims, where the majority of them came from Soviet Union. Under the banner of the crescent and the swastika, these Soviet Muslims believe to become holy warriors to liberated theirs land. But the end of this unholy alliance was a disaster for them.

  2. One good way to remove the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD is to get RID OF THE RINO’S, McCAIN, GRAHAM, BOENHER etc to start with. OH YES, be sure to VOTE OUT THE HEAD CHEERLEADER of the MB,
    OBUMMMAA come this NOVEMBER. LOCK AND LOAD FOR THE NEXT CRUSADE.

    • O is the most honest. He told the Egyptians his goal was to make America an Islamic nation. The others are stupid no goal but be elected monkeys of the muslims. The 5 who speak out are patriots.

  3. Methinks America is screwed from both ends of the political spectrum. Ladies…get your hijabs/butkas ready; you may be wearing them sooner than you think. Enough said.

  4. Correction: It is “burkas” — not that the spelling matters.

    • When you see one in a Burqua bag, tell them they are “free here” and do not need to wear that smelly old bag any more. It cheers them up.
      Watch your back around them.

    • There are multiple spellings for burka, same as there are for the Koran, Qu’ran, etc. — not that that matters…

  5. If it’s not dumbocrats selling America out it’s the rino’s. They are all traitors.

  6. In time traitors will be dealt with. As for the Muslim brotherhood go to their countries of grass roots and fight fire with fire.

    • The problem with fighting fire with fire in this case is a Christian preaching the “Word” in their country is blasphemy and they are killed for it, in our country it is free speech and our government fights on their side to make us all ” understand”. They are blind to the fact that Islam wants everyone to convert to Islam, pay a submission tax and be treated as 3rd class citizens after or die.

  7. Thirty million firearms in the hands of eighty million Christian’s, Jew’s and Other’s, will NEVER allow Islam to take control of our precious Country…by any means! Like Hitler, Islam underestimates the WILL of the American people! Islam cannot sustain by following a defunct god!

  8. It ain’t a conventional war so toss your numbers aside. It’s happening.

  10. When contacting my Democrat Senator about this threat, his response is, “They help law enforcement. Muslims are good people.”

    From my Republican senator, “We will keep you safe.”

    As for my Blue Dog House Representative, there are no responses.

    They are very encouraging, aren’t they?

    What is my Democrat senator thinking when he says Muslims are good people? I don’t trust one of them.

    Government cannot keep us save from Muslim gang rapists, random murders, etc., and aren’t keeping us safe from stealthy infiltration of Islam and Sharia into our lives.

    Yes, let’s spend more money on surveillance that takes away our freedoms, rather than cracking down on Islam and preventing more Muslims from entering the country. Let’s invite our enemies into the White House and other government branches. Why not hand the country over to Muslims since it appears inevitable. Is there an island somewhere we can go?

    • I want to go to the USA. Anyone know where it is? Use to be in my back yard.

      Now instead I am forced to look at women and girls in cloth chains, fear someone will stick a bomb on my car for my anti sharia bumpersticker, learn about the horrors of Islam, pray for thousands if Christians killed, fight my kids schools with lawyers as they are told not to write “Merry Christmas” in public school, and fight the fight with ya’ll.

      Just like Satan wants…everything turned upside down. Not to worry, Jesus will turn everything right side up…when he comes back :)
