Great Britain Condemns Muslim Brotherhood for Terrorism Ties; Obama Isolated in Close Ties to Jihadist Organization

muslim_brotherhood

by Christopher W. Holton

Great Britain just published the results of its exhaustive investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood and it has joined the growing chorus of nations–including Islamic Arab nations such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Egypt–who have fingered the Muslim Brotherhood for ties to Jihadist terrorism.

The Obama administration in the US now stands lone in its close, warm ties to what can only be properly described as the granddaddy of all modern Sunni Jihadist organizations. This illustrates the increasing degree to which Obama has become isolated in the world amid appearing completely out of touch with the reality of the Jihadist threat.

While even the overtly socialist Prime Minister of France, Francois Hollande, has embarked upon a crackdown against Jihad in France and an escalated air campaign against the Islamic State in the Middle East, the American president seems all too typically aloof and detached from what has become the overwhelming security concern of the American people.

The Obama administration has had close ties to American Muslim Brotherhood organizations since before he was even elected in 2008. Prominent members of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) have served in the Obama campaigns and even in the Obama administration.

What most Americans still do not know–including most Republicans–is that ISNA is Muslim Brotherhood and was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest successful terrorism financing prosecution in U.S. history: the U.S. v. the Holy Land Foundation. It was the intention of the Dallas U.S. attorney’s office to prosecute ISNA–along with other Muslim Brotherhood unindicted co-conspirators, notably the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), but then-newly minted Attorney General Eric Holder shut the prosecution down.

This was followed up by Obama’s speech to the Muslim world from Al Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt back in 2009, in which he insisted that the Egyptian regime–a long-time U.S. ally–allow members of the Muslim Brotherhood to sit in the front row.

The Obama administration’s ties to an organization that has been increasingly exposed as a Jihadist terrorist organization cannot be overemphasized.

Up to this point, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has gone to great lengths to provide a unified public front with Obama on security issues, but the evidence gathered by his government apparently left him with no choice but to break ranks with Obama when it came to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Among the main findings of the British report, which expose the degree to which Obama has sympathized with and found common cause with a supremacist, totalitarian organization and doctrine:

• The Muslim Brotherhood seeks the unification of the Islamic world under a Caliphate ruled by Shariah. (This is the exact same goal as the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, and every other Jihadist organization in the world.)

• The Muslim Brotherhood has a clandestine, secretive cell structure around the world.

• The Muslim Brotherhood has a large, sophisticated international clandestine network of commercial enterprises, student organizations, small businesses and charities.

• HAMAS, a vicious Jihadist group designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the US government, is in fact the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood outside of the Palestinian areas, such as the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, provide funding to HAMAS in support of its violent Jihad against Israel.

• The Muslim Brotherhood’s founding fathers and ideological leaders, notably Hassan al Banna and Sayid Qutb, endorsed and supported violent attacks to promote the Muslim Brotherhood’s goals. Both of these monsters remain revered by the rank and file members, as well as leaders, of the Muslim Brotherhood today. Their views on the use of violence inspired Al Qaeda and continue to inspire violent Jihad today.

• Some Muslim Brotherhood leaders condemned the 9/11 attacks–but only in the context of claiming that it as a false flag conspiracy designed to give the U.S. an excuse to wage war against the Islamic world. In other words, according to these Muslim Brotherhood leaders, Al Qaeda didn’t carry out the attacks, America did.

• The Muslim Brotherhood leadership today opposes violence only when and where the use of violence would be counterproductive and stand in the way of their goals. When they see violence as serving their purposes, they absolutely support violent Jihad.

• The Muslim Brotherhood has been embedding itself in the West for over 50 years with the establishment of front organizations and clandestine groups.

• Muslim Brotherhood charities raise funds in the UK and throughout Europe, at least some of these charities have been implicated in funding terrorism.

In conclusion, the Obama administration stands alone in its close ties with, and support for, an international Jihadist organization that is conducting subversive, seditious activity in the U.S. and the West.

CAIR-Los Angeles Chief Hussam Ayloush Blames America for “Extremism” and Terrorism

By Christopher W. Holton

Once again we have been confronted with an outrageous statement from an official of CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood front group that has been implicated in terrorist activity.

Hussam Ayloush, the head of CAIR’s Los Angeles chapter, blamed US foreign policy for terrorism and “extremism” in the wake of the horrific San Bernardino Jihad attack that killed 14 innocent civilians and wounded 21 more.

If US foreign policy is responsible for “extremism” and terrorism, we have a few questions for Mr. Ayloush. We won’t hold our breath waiting for him to provide answers…

• Mr. Ayloush, did Boko Haram Islamic jihadists in Nigeria kidnap 300 Christian school girls because of US foreign policy?

• Mr. Ayloush, did Lashkar-e-Taiba’s Islamic jihadists assault Mumbai, India in 2008, killing 175 innocent civilians because of US foreign policy?

• Mr. Ayloush, did Chechan Islamic jihadists slaughter hundreds of school children in Beslan, Russia because of US foreign policy?

• Mr. Ayloush, did Al Shabaab Islamic jihadists slaughter 67 innocent civilians in the Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, Kenya because of US foreign policy?

• Mr. Ayloush, did Jemaah Islamiyah Islamic jihadists kill 202 tourists in bombings in Bali, Indonesia in 2002 because of US foreign policy?

• Mr. Ayloush, did Islamic jihadists kill 191 innocent civilians in 2004 in the Madrid, Spain train bombings because of US foreign policy?

I could go on and on, but you get the idea…the problem clearly isn’t American foreign policy. The problem is the global Jihadist movement, of which your organization’s parent, HAMAS, is a key component.

And the whole “terrorism” debate continues yet again…

by Christopher W. Holton

In the wake of the San Bernardino attack yesterday morning, we are once again witnessing the pointless debate in law enforcement circles, as well as the news media, as to whether the mass shooting was an act of “terrorism.”

This morning on Fox News, a so-called “expert” was dissecting the Justice Department’s official definition of terrorism to justify the FBI’s hesitation in classifying what is, let’s face it, another act of war.

That same “expert” claimed that this was another example of “self-radicalization” over the internet and thus was very difficult to classify.

Fighting through the nausea induced by the talking heads’ ignorance, I managed to utter the word, “Hogwash.”

We must refrain as a country from once again entering into a debate on what amounts largely to semantics about whether or not this latest massacre was an act of “terrorism.”

We need to get away from focusing on the term “terrorism.” Some folks still don’t consider the 1983 Beirut Barracks bombing by Hezbollah which killed 241 Marines, sailors and soldiers an act of terrorism because, by some widely regarded definitions, attacks on combatants under such circumstances cannot be termed “terrorism.”

The San Bernardino massacre and the 1983 attack on the Marine Barracks, though very different, were both acts of JIHAD.

The Jihadis themselves don’t refer to themselves as “terrorists.” But they most assuredly refer to themselves as “Jihadis.”

I say let them own that title. If one of them goes out on his own and shoots up a ticket counter at LAX, beheads a grandmother with a knife in Moore, Oklahoma, or shoots up a county health facility in California, those are acts of Jihad, just as 9-11 was an act of Jihad.

This was never a war on “terrorism.”

We are at war with the Jihadists. They are waging Jihad against us and that takes many forms:

• Outright military confict (see Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs)

• Insurgency (See Iraq, Afghanistan, Algeria, Thailand, Philippines, Pakistan, India, Somalia, Yemen, and others)

• Terrorism (9-11, Paris, train bombings in Spain, 7/7 bombings in the UK, Mumbai, etc)

• Individual acts of violent Jihad (DC sniper, LAX shooting, Ft. Hood, Garland, Texas, Moore Oklahoma, Chattanooga, Tennessee, etc.)

• Financial Jihad (zakat payments to Islamic charities which, by Islamic Shariah law, fund Jihad, Sharia-Compliant Finance)

•Civilizational Jihad (peaceful methods, such as political influence operations (Muslim Brotherhood fronts such as CAIR, ISNA), mass immigration, lawfare, imposing Islamic customs on the West (insisting we play by their rules)).

ALL OF THIS IS JIHAD. JIHAD IS THE KEY. WE SHOULD NOT GET WRAPPED UP IN TRYING TO CLASSIFY IT IN OUR OWN VERNACULAR. ORIENT ON THE ENEMY’S DOCTRINE AND LEARN HOW HE THINKS AND ACTS.

IT’S JIHAD.

Senator Ted Cruz Files Bill to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as a Terrorist Organization

muslimbrotherhood2

By Christopher W. Holton

Senator Ted Cruz has filed a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

We congratulate Senator Cruz for this long overdue move. Way back in 2007 the Bush administration was petitioned to designate the Muslim Brotherhood but they failed to do so.

Not only is the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, it is the forerunner of all modern-day Sunni Jihadist terrorist organizations.

There is a common misconception that the Muslim Brotherhood swore off violence years ago, but that myth stems from an agreement decades ago between the MB and the Egyptian government. The MB agreed not to target the Egyptian government with violence, but they never gave up all violent Jihad. That explains why their Palestinian wing, HAMAS, is one of the most savage, barbaric terrorist organizations on the planet.

Andrew McCarthy has complete details in a great column over on National Review:

US Army Issues New Shoulder Patch for Campaign Against “ISIL”

By Christopher Holton

The US Army has issued a new shoulder patch for the slightly more than 3,000 troops who President Obama has decided he can spare to fight the world’s most dangerous Jihadist entity, the Islamic State, which the US federal government still insists on referring to as “ISIL,” despite the fact that there are now Jihadi groups from West Africa to the Philippines that have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.

Nothing illustrates better the institutional denial that we are saddled with as a nation in our fight to save Western civilization than our federal counter terror bureaucracy’s slavish attitude toward outmoded views on the threat from Jihad…except maybe the new shoulder patch that is the subject of this post. Here it is:

New US Army shoulder patch. Note absence of anything identifiable with the US Army or the United States of America

Jaws: Lessons from 1975 on How NOT to Keep Safe from Jihad

jaws-30th-anniversary-edition-20050617034819744

Tonight the movie Jaws is on AMC.

Jaws was a blockbuster hit in 1975 based on the best-selling novel by the late Peter Benchley.

The storyline is about a Great White shark that stakes out its territory off the coast of a New England resort town named Amity. Bathers and swimmers start getting attacked and eaten right as the 4th of July tourist bonanza begins.

The Chief of Police and a marine biologist try to convince the Mayor of Amity to close the beaches until the shark can be killed. The mayor ignores their warnings and, sure enough, more people die as a result.

The Mayor refuses to recognize the threat and treats his police chief and the marine biologist as if they were crazy for even suggesting that he close the beaches. His myopia results in dead voters.

There is a lesson here relating to today’s threat from Islam, both in the form of civilizational Jihad and violent Jihad.

In this analogy, the criminally myopic and irresponsible Mayor of Amity is represented by elected and appointed officials in the West who either refuse to recognize the existential threat to Western civilization posed by Jihad or recognize the threat, but deny it publicly.

We’re not just talking about President Obama here, though he certainly personifies the West’s inadequate response to Jihad. It is now abundantly clear that Obama’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood run broad and deep.

But Obama isn’t the only one to blame. He is essentially implementing the policies he always said he would implement. The people who voted for an support Obama are to blame.

But not just the voters are to blame.

Take Secretary of State John Kerry, for example. He is responsible for the mythology that Jihad is founded in poverty, despite there being no evidence to back up this supposition. To make matters worse, he is leading the charge to strike a horrible bargain that will guarantee that the world’s most active state sponsor of terrorism, Iran, achieves its goal of becoming a nuclear power.

From this point forward, let John Kerry be forever known as the father of the Iranian Bomb.

Kerry’s predecessor, Hillary Clinton, is also a villain. Hillary and Bill’s close and extensive financial ties to the Saudis, Qataris and other nefarious Gulf interests are enough to make even the Bush family green with envy.

Then there is the soon-to-be departed attorney general Eric Holder, who refused to even utter the euphemism “radical Islam” under congressional questioning and then shut down the follow-on to the Holy Land Foundation prosecution, letting Muslim Brotherhood fronts such as CAIR and ISNA, who were named unindicted co-conspirators in that terrorism case, off scot-free. Holder may be the worst villain of all and should be pursued for prosecution on a variety of charges for malfeasance during his long tenure at the helm of Justice.

But there are plenty of Republicans to blame, who sat by and let all this happen, with scarcely a word of protest.

There’s John McCain, who cooperated with Obama in setting the stage for Libya to descend into chaos, opening an opportunity for Jihadists and then repeated the same mistake in Syria.

120209_john_mccain_605_ap

John Boehner is a villain as well, because he rolled over for Obama repeatedly, then teamed with Marco Rubio and the aforementioned McCain in criticizing members of their own Republican caucus who questioned Hillary Clinton consort Huma Mahmood Abedin’s longstanding and proven ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Boehner: An Enabler of Obama's Policies

Boehner: An Enabler of Obama’s Policies

All of these people personify the Mayor of Amity from Jaws. They all want the rest of us to believe that the shark isn’t out there, or that it isn’t dangerous. They have differing motivations, but the result is the same: the West is vulnerable and under assault.

 

The Election

The greatest danger from the results last night is that people will think that electing Republicans solves our national security problems. Those days ended a quarter century ago.

Today, many Republican officials are clueless when it comes to national security and most are completely ignorant about the threat from Islamic jihad. Our work is just now cut out for us. The only difference between Republicans and Democrats on the threat from Shariah and Jihad is that SOME Republicans will listen to us, whereas almost no Democrats will as of yet.

Remember, when Representatives Gohmert, Bachman and a few others called for inspectors general of the major departments of government to look into the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in our governmental institutions, it was REPUBLICAN leaders and operatives, like John Boehner, John McCain, Marco Rubio, Suhail Khan and Grover Norquist who attacked them.

For those of us in the national security field, last night was not a victory. It was merely the start of a lot of urgent, hard work.

Oklahoma Beheader Tied to CAIR-Associated Imam

By Christopher Holton

BreitBart.com has a report this morning that indicates that Jah’Keem Yisrael (aka Alton Nolen) the Oklahoma Muslim who beheaded a former co-worker following an argument about the Islamic practice of stoning women has ties, some direct and some indirect, to prominent figures in the US Islamic community.

Yisrael attended the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, a mosque affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

ISNA is the largest Muslim organization in the US. It was exposed as a Muslim Brotherhood front in documents stipulated to by the defense and entered into evidence in the largest terrorism financing prosecution in US history, the US v the Holy Land Foundation. ISNA was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in that trial. Later, when ISNA tried to get that designation removed or retracted, a federal judge in New Orleans refused their request, calling the designation accurate and proper.

The only thing that kept ISNA from prosecution on terror charges was the corrupt influence of Attorney General Eric Holder, who shut down the ongoing investigation.

One of the Imams at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City was Suhaib Webb, who BreitBart reports was close to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula Imam Anwar al-Awlaki.

Webb is now affiliated with the Islamic Society of Boston (another ISNA mosque), the notorious mosque co-founded by convicted Al Qaeda terrorist Abdurahman Alamoudi and attended by the Boston Marathon bombers, the Tsarnaev brothers. As USA Today reported back in April 2013, the Islamic Society of Boston has been absolutely littered with Jihadis and terrorists over the years.

In October 2013, Webb appeared at a Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) event where he attacked human rights activist (and victim of Islamic Female Genital Mutilation) Hirsi Ali and openly called for an Islamic dominated society and system of government–essentially an Islamic State.

CAIR, like ISNA, was also exposed as a Muslim Brotherhood front in the Holy Land Foundation trial and also named an un-indicted co-conspirator in that trial. FBI surveillance evidence also revealed that CAIR is essentially a US arm of HAMAS, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.

More recently, in association with the Oklahoma beheading, CAIR has sought to distance itself from Jah’Keem Yisrael. Adam Soltani of CAIR-Oklahoma stated that “Islam stands clearly opposed to violence in any kind and in no way could or faith ever support the actions of this man.”

The available evidence, dating back 1400 years to the earliest origins of Islamic doctrine to the actions of literally dozens of Jihadist organizations on every continent, save Antarctica, contradicts this ridiculous statement by Soltani.

Anyone who has been paying attention knows that Jihadis from around the world have been using beheading in gruesome, flamboyant manner. The incident in Oklahoma was anything but isolated.

There have been a series of beheadings of hostages by Al Qaeda and the Islamic State; Daniel Pearl, James Foley, Steven Sotloff, David Haines and Herve Gourdel are just a few of the Westerners beheaded by Jihadis.

Last week, Australian authorities disrupted an Islamic State plot to carry out beheading attacks on the streets of that country.

In addition, there have been beheadings committed by individual Muslims carrying out acts of Jihad. There was the beheading murder of British soldier Lee Rigby at the hands of Muslims Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale on the streets of London. Earlier this month, an 82-year old woman was beheaded in her garden in London by a 25-year old Muslim.

In 2009, Muslim TV executive Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan beheaded his wife after being served with divorce papers. Hassan was considered a prominent “moderate” Muslim all the way up until the time he sawed his wife’s head off.

The point of all this is that there is a definite pattern here. There are many ways to kill someone. But Muslim jihadis choose to behead their victims.

Why?

Because Islamic doctrine says that they should. Multiple verses in the Koran and stories from the Hadith urge Muslims to behead the enemies of allah and demonstrate that the prophet Mohammed led his Jihadi fighters in mass beheadings. Under the Islamic doctrine of Sunna, Muslims are supposed to follow the perfect example set by Mohammed. And Mohammed beheaded his victims.

Pay no attention to the psychobabble coming out of the news media and the federal government–Islamic doctrine is the foundation for these beheadings. It is in their scripture. Period.

Be especially wary of taqiyya (sacred deception to promote Islam) coming from Islamic leaders and organizations when it comes to beheadings.

It’s not the first time we have seen this intentional lying. CAIR in particular has a long history of this activity as we discussed in an article back in 2013:

http://terrortrendsbulletin.com/2013/01/13/cairs-new-disinformation-campaign-on-jihad/

CAIR in particular is a troubling organization that can only be described as a nefarious 5th Column unit.

Here are some concerns that thousands of Americans have about CAIR:

  • CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the US v. Holy Land Foundation, the largest terrorism financing prosecution in US history.
  • The Holy Land Foundation was a Texas-based charity whose officers were sentenced in May 2009 to between 15 and 65 years in prison for funneling over $12 million to Hamas. One of the sentenced officers, Ghassan Elashi, is the founder of CAIR’s Dallas chapter. Elashi’s illegal activities took place while he was affiliated with CAIR.
  • CAIR opened its first office in Washington, D.C. with the help of a $5,000 grant from the Holy Land Foundation.
  • In a formal letter to Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona dated 28 April 2009, the FBI stated that during the Holy Land Foundation trial, “evidence was introduced that demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders (including its current President Emeritus and its Executive Director) and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and HAMAS, which was designated as a terrorist organization in 1995. In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI.”
  • In March 2011, Muthanna al-Hanooti, one of CAIR’s directors, was sentenced to a year in federal prison for violating U.S. sanctions against Saddam’s Iraq.
  • In January of 2011, the CAIR California chapter published a poster promoting a conference called “Know Your Rights and Defend Our Communities.” That poster prominently featured the following slogan: “BUILD A WALL OF RESISTANCE DON’T TALK TO THE FBI.”
  • On March 22, 1994, During a panel discussion at Barry University in Florida, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said: “I used to support the PLO, and I used to be the President of the General Union of Palestine Students which is part of the PLO here in the United States, but after I researched the situation inside Palestine and outside, I am in support of the Hamas movement more than the PLO.”
  • On February 2, 1995, U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White named CAIR Advisory Board member and New York imam Siraj Wahhaj as one of the “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in Egyptian Islamic Group leader “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman’s foiled plot to blow up numerous New York City monuments.
  • On April 19, 1996, in its first published report on alleged anti-Muslim discrimination, titled “The Price of Ignorance,” CAIR cited the arrest of Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (the Blind Sheikh), the Egyptian cleric serving a life sentence for conspiracy to blow up New York landmarks in 1993, and the detention of senior Hamas leader Musa Abu Marzuq, as “incidents of bias and violence” against Muslims in the U.S.
  • On July 4, 1998, former CAIR chairman Omar M. Ahmad, told Fremont, California’s daily newspaper, The Argus, that “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant, he said. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
  • In October 1998, CAIR demanded the removal of a Los Angeles billboard describing Osama bin Laden as “the sworn enemy.” According to CAIR, this depiction was “offensive to Muslims.”
  • In 1993, CAIR spokesperson Ibrahim Hooper told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that “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. … But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”
  • In September 2003, CAIR’s former Community Affairs Director, Bassem Khafagi, pled guilty to three federal counts of bank and visa fraud and agreed to be deported to Egypt. Federal investigators said that a group Khafagi founded, the Islamic Assembly of North America, had funneled money to activities supporting terrorism and had published material advocating suicide attacks against the United States. Khafagi’s illegal activities took place while he was employed by CAIR.
  • In 2004, CAIR-Northern Virginia director Abdurahman Alamoudi pled guilty to terrorism-related financial and conspiracy charges in 2004, which resulted in a 23-year prison sentence.
  • In 2006, the co-founder of CAIR’s parent organization, IAP (Islamic Association for Palestine), Sami Al-Arian, was sentenced to 57 months in prison on terrorism charges for financing Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a designated terrorist organization according to the US State Department.
  • On August 12, 2006 CAIR helped to coordinate a number of demonstrations in support of Hezbollah and “resistance” groups fighting American forces in Iraq.
  • Randall Todd Royer, who served as a communications specialist and civil rights coordinator for CAIR, trained with Lashkar-I-Taiba, an al Qaeda-tied Kashmir organization that is listed on the State Department’s international terror list. He was also indicted on charges of conspiring to help al Qaeda and the Taliban battle American troops in Afghanistan. He later pled guilty to lesser firearm-related charges and was sentenced to twenty years in prison on April 9, 2004.  Royer’s illegal activities took place while he was employed by CAIR.
  • Onetime CAIR fundraiser Rabih Haddad was arrested on terrorism-related charges and was deported from the United States due to his subsequent work as Executive Director of the Global Relief Foundation, which in October 2002 was designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Haddad raised money for the Ann Arbor, Michigan chapter of CAIR.
  • On April 20, 2002: Nihad Awad addressed an anti-Israel rally in Washington D.C. while standing next to Hezbollah flag.
  • On October 12, 2001: Ghazi Kankan, executive director of CAIR’s New York office at the time, defended Hamas’s targeting of Israeli civilians. He told the Jewish Week that, like Hamas, he considered all Israelis over the age of 18 to be “military” because “they are all reserves.”

Given the number of individuals associated with CAIR who have been convicted on terrorism-related causes, as well as the disturbing associations and statements from CAIR and its officials, it is very difficult to take their statements on violent Jihad seriously.

 

 

 

HOLTON: The Enemy Knows We’re In A World War, But We Don’t

Excerpt and LINK from my guest article in The Hayride…

The Islamic State is not simply an Iraqi problem or a Syrian problem. IS has metastasized into a worldwide organization with 20,000 recruits from Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, the U.S., Great Britain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Spain, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Germany. Even worse, Jihadists from Boko Haram in Nigeria, Abu Sayyef in the Philippines, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in Northwest Africa and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula from Yemen have all pledged allegiance to IS.

There can no longer be any doubt that the global Islamic insurgency that some have been warning about for some time, amounts to a world war. Nevertheless, policymakers here in the U.S. continue to ignore or deny this reality.

Over the period of a generation, the West has allowed itself to be thoroughly infiltrated by a savage and barbaric belief system. This is evidenced by the global base of recruitment that the Islamic State has been able to take advantage of and the numerous public displays of support for IS in the West.
