The Trojan horse story should be a lesson to us all, especially here in the United States. We have a long history of being a melting pot of all the world’s cultures and people seeking a better life in the name of freedom. Those that come here do not always strive to become part of our great society; some aim to destroy that society that makes America great and replace it with a darker more sinister one.
While the Council on American-Islamic Relations likes to bill itself as a “civil rights organization.” It downplays its direct ties to the terrorist group Hamas, its lineage to the Brotherhood and it’s extremist history that includes dozens of its executives, board members’ and staffers’ indictments, convictions and prison sentences for terror-related crimes.
But sometimes CAIR leadership lets its guard down. That’s what happened, apparently, in the early morning hours of Nov. 9, right after won the election. Hussam Ayloush, the long-time director of CAIR-Los Angeles, Tweeted out the following message:
“Ok, repeat after me:
“Al-Shaab yureed isqat al-nizaam.
“(Arab Spring chant)”
The second line in Arabic translates to “The people want to bring down the regime.”
“In other words, Ayloush unambiguously and directly called for the overthrow of the U.S. government,” observes scholar Daniel Pipes of Middle East Forum. Ayloush is hardly a fringe character with CAIR. He has been around for a long time. Of late he has been peddling horror stories about a rash of Islamophobia and “hate crimes” in California, much of which doesn’t stand up to even the slightest scrutiny. He has recently called on the ‘faithful’ to make their presence known at Trump’s inauguration in January.
He’s an active member of the Democratic Party, serving as a delegate to the national convention in 2012. Officially, he has visited the White House at least twice during Barack Obama’s administration. According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, White House logs conspicuously omit three other meetings.
“The dawning of Donald Trump’s victory was apparently a trying moment for Ayloush, so he let loose with an emotion he’d usually have kept under wraps,” observes Pipes. “In other words, he offered a rare, candid insight into the mind of one CAIR apparatchik.”
The Department of Justice named CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land case, which convicted the charity of funneling more than $12 million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. In November 2014, the United Arab Emirates named CAIR as one of 82 designated terrorist organizations around the world, placing it in the company of al-Qaida and ISIS.
The Brotherhood document presented as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas in 2008, became the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history. In it was a “100-year plan” to gradually destroy the U.S. and Western civilization from within “so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
In 2010, a federal judge determined that the Justice Department provided “ample evidence” to designate CAIR as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, affirming the group’s involvement in “a conspiracy to support Hamas.” CAIR has cultivated some political supporters – mainly among leading Democrats in Washington – that include senior White House officials. Secret Service entry logs show several CAIR officials have visited the White House multiple times during the Obama administration.
In 2009, however, FBI Assistant Director John Miller wrote to Rep. Frank R. Wolf, R-Va., confirming that the bureau had “suspended any formal engagement” with CAIR field offices around the country. He explained that the move came ‘in part as a result of evidence gathered through FBI investigation and presented in connection with the Holy Land Foundation trial.”
In candid moments, CAIR leaders have acknowledged the Brotherhood aim of turning the U.S. into an Islamic state. CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad, according to a local newspaper, told a group of Muslims in Northern California in 1998 that they were in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam’s rule over the country.
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” a paper paraphrased him as saying. “The Quran, the book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” Ahmad insists the paper misquoted him, but an FBI wiretap transcript quotes Ahmad agreeing with terrorist suspects gathered at the secret Philadelphia meeting to “camouflage” their true intentions.
He compared it to the head fake in basketball: “This is like one who plays basketball: He makes a player believe that he is doing this, while he does something else,” Ahmad said. “I agree with you. As they say, politics is a completion of the war.”
Ahmad also has expressed a desire to overturn the U.S. system of government for an Islamic state. “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” Hooper said in a 1993 interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”
Despite all this, the Obama administration has sought to involve CAIR in its “anti-terror” efforts. In the most recent example, it was revealed that the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department have worked with CAIR’s Florida branch on a training session for a French police delegation. This partnership in spite of the fact the FBI has concluded that “until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.”
CAIR’s mission in this assignment: “to facilitate in conjunction with DHS and the State Department, a week-long training, and tour for a delegation of French officials on how to challenge violent extremist individuals of all backgrounds and prevent hate crimes, while protecting civil rights and challenging profiling and discrimination.”
Why are these people still walking free amongst us? The law is pretty clear on what to do with them; 18 U.S. Code § 2385, “Advocating overthrow of government,” prescribes specific penalties for such behavior: “Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”
The fact that no arrests have yet happened shows that either the Obama regime is unwilling to prosecute these traitors in our midst or are unable for some reason. If they are reluctant to pursue we, have to ask why. Do they fear reprisal from terrorism? With our sophisticated technology and intelligence, we have gotten better at stemming acts of terror.
That leaves one rational explanation; they are unwilling to attack Islamic Fundamentalist terror for the simple reason that they support their goals and objectives.
If they are unable to do so, what does that say about our government? Are our efforts at homeland security failing? Are we incompetent in our ability to apprehend terrorists, then why have we not changed our direction in prosecuting the war on terror to become successful? Our leaders, including Obama, are not stupid people.
If we are failing in the fight against terror, it is NOT because we cannot win. It is because we lack the desire to prosecute the war. Then we are left with a burning question, why are they not willing to do what it takes to win?
