Expert offers free counterterrorism training to inspectors general, police
Despite more than ten years of efforts involving the loss of thousands of lives in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, well-over a trillion dollars spent, countless man-years wasted waiting in airport security lines and endless efforts to ensure that no offense is given to seemingly permanently aggrieved Muslim activists, “why are we no closer to victory in the “war on terror” than we were on 9/11?” asks noted terrorism expert Frank Gaffney, a former assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan Administration.
America faces in addition to the threat of violent jihad another, even more toxic danger: a stealthy and pre-violent form of warfare aimed at destroying our constitutional form of democratic government and free society. The Muslim Brotherhood is the prime-mover behind this seditious campaign, which it calls “civilization jihad,” the terrorism expert noted.
“In light of these findings [regarding the Muslim Brotherhood], there is an urgent need for rigorous congressional oversight and investigations aimed at exposing the extent of the civilization jihad – and the need for corrective action aimed at countering it, particularly by federal authorities. Such legislative branch initiatives should be accompanied by corresponding actions initiated by Inspectors General and, as appropriate, law enforcement,” Gaffney stated.
Gaffney followed an impressive academic and government service career by founding a non-partisan educational organization: The Center for Security Policy.
In an effort to provide the missing answer, on April 24, the Center for Security Policy made available via the Internet a new, free ten-part video course called “The Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Enemy Within.”
This course connects the proverbial dots, drawing on a wealth of publicly available data and first-hand accounts to present a picture that has, for over a decade, been obscured, denied and suppressed.
Gaffney stated: “Thankfully, we have been able to kill some dangerous bad guys. The sad truth of the matter is that, by almost any other measure, the prospect of victory is becoming more remote by the day. And no one seems able to explain the reason.”
Gaffney’s course draws exclusively upon information in the public domain and that obtained from first-hand accounts. There is, assuredly, considerably more information that would be helpful to making to a full threat assessment. The findings below, based solely on what is currently available, should prompt those with access to classified information, subpoena power and other investigative tools to bring them to bear urgently for that purpose. Here is a mere handful of Gaffney’s findings:
<> Shariah is a totalitarian, brutally repressive and supremacist doctrine. Its adherents –- notably, the Muslim Brotherhood –- seek to bring it here.
<> Shariah is principally about power, not faith. Accordingly, acting to realize its political end of overthrowing the U.S. government is seditious and must be prosecuted, not treated as protected religious practice.
<> The Brotherhood is not a non-violent group. Rather, in most countries where it operates including the United States, it is in a pre-violent phase.
<> The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan, the group’s mission in America is a “civilization-jihadist process…a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within” by our hands.
<> The Muslim Brotherhood’s civilization jihad is being pursued through stealthy means involving the penetration and subversion of this country’s civil society and governing institutions. Presidencies of both parties have been compromised in this way.
<> One determinant of the success of such a stealthy, pre-violent jihad is what the military calls “information dominance.” If the Muslim Brotherhood can exercise it, we can be kept ignorant of the true nature of the threat they pose – and the progress they are making in bringing shariah to America. That has been substantially the case over the past ten years and increasingly of late.
