Five Congressmen Call for Muslim Brotherhood Influence Investigations

In what could prove to be a watershed moment in the fight against radical Islam, five prominent members of Congress wrote letters to the Inspector Generals of the Departments of State, Justice, Defense, Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence requesting investigations into the influence of Muslim Brotherhood-tied groups and individuals. The letters, signed by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) among others, refers to a 10-part, freely-available online course created by the Center for Security Policy titled, "Muslim Brotherhood in America," narrated by Frank Gaffney, who served as Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy under the Reagan Administration.

Missouri Right to Life Stands By Endorsement of Islamist 9/11 Truther

On Monday, July 9, I broke the story that the Missouri Right to Life Political Action Committee had endorsed a candidate for Secretary of State named MD Rabbi Alam with close ties to Islamist groups, specifically Viva Palestina, who is also a 9/11 conspiracy theorist who wrote that no Jews were killed in the terrorist attacks. Those who have contacted Missouri Right to Life have informed us that they are standing by the endorsement. Our requests via email for an official statement about whether the endorsement will be rescinded have been ignored.

New Film Exposes Nashville Islamist Network

On June 1, 2009, William "Andy" Long was murdered at an Army recruiting center in Little Rock, Arkansas by an Islamist terrorist named Carlos Bledsoe. In a new, heart-wrenching and jaw-dropping film titled "Losing Our Sons" by Americans for Peace and Tolerance, you see the real story of how this happened. The bottom line is this: The Islamists are operating in our midst, we're refusing to recognize it, radicalization is no accident and any family can be victimized by it. [more...]

Huma Abedin: Assistant Editor of Islamist Journal

Rep. Michele Bachmann and four other members of Congress are getting dumped on by members of both political parties for their letter requesting information about the influence of Muslim Brotherhood-tied groups and individuals in the U.S. government. The case of Huma Abedein, Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Clinton, has gotten almost all of the attention but their question about her is legitimate: Was her family’s close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood taken into account when granting her a security clearance?

Why Assad Can't Win

The fighting in Damascus and now Aleppo means Syrian dictator Bashar Assad can no longer hope to reclaim his country. The best he can hope for is to barricade himself inside a stronghold in the mountainous areas of the northwest and along the Mediterranean Coast. [more...]

Two Shades of Evil Battle in Syria

Russia and China predictably vetoed the proposed United Nations Security Council resolution authorizing sanctions against the Syrian regime, which was submitted for a vote on July 19th by the United Kingdom. The rejected resolution would have placed Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan’s six-point peace plan under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter. If it had passed, the Security Council would have been able to authorize a range of diplomatic and economic sanctions (but no military action) against the Syrian government should it continue to fail to comply with all elements of the plan and Syria’s prior commitments, including to stop using heavy weapons and to withdraw its troops from major population centers.

Appeasing the Muslim Brotherhood Crocodile

This weekend, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her first visit to Egypt since Mohammad Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was elected president of Egypt. Despite the fact that her motorcade was pelted with tomatoes and stones and protesters chanted “Monica, Monica,” the Secretary seemed to be willfully blinding herself as to what “Islamism” and the Muslim Brotherhood actually represent. A clue as to their real intentions, not just for Israel, but for the United States, was that at his very first public appearance addressing throngs of admiring Egyptians, Mohammad Morsi vowed to get the “blind sheik,” Omar Abdul-Rahman, released from prison in the United States.

UN Rewards Iran with Top Arms Trade Conference Post

Last May, according to Reuters, a panel of sanctions-monitoring experts reported to the Security Council’s Iran sanctions committee that Iran shipped weapons to the Syrian regime, helping to enable the regime to massacre its citizens and violating a UN ban on weapons exports by Iran.

"Iran has continued to defy the international community through illegal arms shipments," the report stated. "Two of these cases involved [Syria], as were the majority of cases inspected by the Panel during its previous mandate, underscoring that Syria continues to be the central party to illicit Iranian arms transfers."
