Islamic Infiltration of the U.S. Government, Part I

November 25, 2019

What America’s Founders knew about Islam.  The earliest record of Islam’s interface with America was when the Muslim Barbary Coast pirates tried to extort money from the fledgling United States of America in 1786 in exchange for safe passage of America’s merchant ships through the straits of Gibraltar at the neck of the Mediterranean Sea. The U.S. government sent Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin abroad to negotiate with the Muslim ambassador in Tripoli, Libya. After considerable negotiations, the American representatives could see no other way out of the predicament other than agree to pay an exorbitant ransom, which amounted to ten percent of America’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) at the time.

On March 28, 1786, in a letter to Secretary of State, John Jay, who was in London at the time, Jefferson and Adams shared the following observations.

We took the liberty to make some inquiries concerning the Grounds of their pretentions to make war upon Nations who had done them no Injury, and observed that we consider all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. 

The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.

Jefferson, Adams and Franklin knew the United States did not have the money that the Muslim ambassador demanded. Their only hope was to get the U.S. Congress to agree to allow them to make a loan agreement with Holland.

John Adams, in his report to John Jay, gave his impression of Islam. He referred to Muhammad as a “military fanatic” who “denies that laws were made for him; he arrogates everything to himself by force of arms.”

In reviewing his experience, Franklin wrote: “Nor can the Plundering of Infidels be in that sacred Book (the Qur’an) forbidden, since it is well known from it, that God has given the World, and all that it contains, to his faithful Mussulmen, who are to enjoy it of Right as fast as they conquer it.”

When Jefferson became president in March, 1801, the Barbary Coast pirates were extorting 25 percent of America’s GDP and were still attacking America’s merchant ships. Jefferson wasted no time and agreed to send the full might of America’s naval fleet to vanquish the Muslim pirates.

The Universal Goal of Islam. The goal of Islam has never changed since its inception over 1400 years ago: To conquer and subjugate the infidels wherever they may be found by any means possible and necessary. For the West and those in the United States to believe otherwise is pure folly and a potentially deadly error. As a zebra cannot change its stripes, neither can Islam be reformed into some passive, peacenik ideology.

In America, Muslims represent less than 2% of the total population. However, they have accomplished far more than in any other Western country in a very short time. Thanks to America’s diversity complex; desire to welcome all people; overall openness and kindness; Judeo-Christian heritage; ignorant and easily deceived church leaders and politicians; generous welfare laws that include non-citizens (including Social Security benefits); socialist-leaning government; adoption of the Islamist “Islamophobia” rhetoric and agenda and a host of other welcoming loopholes, Islamists are right at home in the country they seek to dominate.

Islamists—radical, fundamentalist Muslims—have successfully infiltrated America’s government (county, state and federal), military, law enforcement, educational systems (from elementary through university), legal systems, churches and every aspect of daily American life. Not fully, but effectively enough that it is changing the minds of Americans to accept the Muslim mindset more and more each day. The Muslims refer to it as the Civilization Jihad—the undermining of the very foundations of America from within.

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim brothers] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen [Islamic guerilla fighters] be equal (An Explanatory Memorandum, On the Strategic Goal for the Group in North America, 5/22/1991).

This document, An Explanatory Memorandum, discovered by the FBI in a raid on a Muslim Brotherhood home in Annandale, Virginia in August, 2004, details the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood and its sympathizers in the United States. Despite the overt candor of the Memo, the media, most politicians and law enforcement have not taken it seriously. To the contrary, the media, politicians, law enforcement and America’s churches have become all too willing dupes of the Muslim Brotherhood. The MB is well on its way to accomplishing exactly what the Memo proclaims: destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands.

“At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

Abraham Lincoln, January 27, 1838

(See Revelation 18 and the Fate of America.)

Islam and the U.S. Constitution are not compatible. The First Amendment of the United States of America Constitution reads: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. 

America was the first nation in the history of the world to have such an extensive and all-inclusive “Bill of Rights.” Islam neither acknowledges nor believes in any of the freedoms presented in this treasured law of America.

In Islamic countries, it is the government that dictates the religion for its citizens. There is no freedom of choice for and individual to decide whether or not to worship Islam’s god. All must worship Allah or face severe persecution and consequences. Islamic governments, the mullahs and imams respect no religion other than Islam. In many Muslim countries, if one is allowed to remain a Jew or Christian, you must pay a “poll tax” that allows you to be a second class citizen. However, you cannot express your faith openly or share it with others. You are a prisoner of the confines of Islam. If your father is a Muslim, the moment you are born, you are a Muslim also. If you decide to leave Islam later in life, you risk abandonment by your family, at least, or death.

(1) Islam is the religion of the State.

(2) No religion other than Islam can be propagated in the country.

(3) No law can be enacted that is not compliant with the general principles and objectives of Shari’ah.

Article 2

The Federal Republic of Somalia

Provisional Constitution

Adopted August 1, 2012

Freedom of speech does not exist in Islam. It is Islam’s religious leaders and scholars that determine what one can say, especially if it pertains to Islam or its prophet, Muhammad. If one says anything critical or judgmental about Islam or Muhammad, one can go to prison or be executed. You are not allowed to question the ideology or its leaders. Their word is of Allah and infallible.

In Islamic countries, Islam is the Law. Islam functions as the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government and dictates what every citizen is to believe and do. No freedom of thought or discussion is permitted.

Islam also does not observe freedom of the press. All official media must comply with Islamic teaching and not deviate in their presentations. Media releases are often fabricated to order to present the official positions of the Islamic government and to toe the line of Islamic propaganda.

The right to peacefully assemble or petition the government with grievances does not exist in Muslim countries. They are dictatorships. While there have been frequent citizen protests in places like Egypt and Iran, they are met with brutal force and death to silence any opposition to Islamic dictatorial rule.

Islam also dictates what women must wear, how they must behave, what she can do in public and basically suppress a woman’s life so that it is not her own, but only that which is dictated by her male superior.

Bottom line: Islam is oppressive, dictatorial and entraps men and women in a veil of bondage with no escape without severe consequences. It is the very antithesis of what America’s Founders envisioned and implemented by the wisdom of God Almighty.

A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within.

True Interfaith Dialogue with Muslims

November 9, 2019

James F. Gauss, Ph.D.

The anti-Islamic message is not welcome here
West Central Tribune, Willmar, MN, November 6, 2019

Preaching ‘hate’ for Islam, speaker arrives in a divided Willmar
NPRNews, November 7, 2019

Controversial speaker draws twice the crowd
West Central Tribune, Willmar, MN, November 8, 2019

(Willmar, MN) Now, after the blaring headlines, the rest of the story. For two weeks prior to the appearance of Usama Dakdok, an Egyptian born American evangelist to Muslims and founder of The Straight Way of Grace Ministry, the Willmar, MN interfaith group tried their best to shut the event down. Failing to do so, a local “concerned” citizen launched a Face Book page that garnered almost 500 followers in an effort to get anti-Dakdok interfaithers to show up and protest the evening of the event on November 7.

It did not matter to the media and the protesters that virtually none of them had ever heard Pastor Dakdok in person. The declaration of the local paper, the West Central Tribune, was that Dakdok was an “Islamophobic individual,” a Muslim hater and racist. The primary source of their outrage and that of the interfaithers was a posting on the website of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR, which promotes itself as an Islamic civil rights group, is a Muslim Brotherhood front organization and unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial in late 2008. Not a real reliable source of information about those who oppose it or speak out about Islam.

Dakdok.20191107_180026

The event was sponsored by THEE Book Club in Willmar, a small group of concerned evangelical Christians who want to understand Islam and how to reach out to Muslims. The group was formed over a year ago and has brought a number of Christian and patriotic speakers to the region. Heidi Jo Fragerlie-Ahmann, the main spokesperson for the Club, opened the evening with her personal testimony, which was quite moving and appropriately led into the topic for the evening.

An hour before the event, interfaithers and a large number of Somali showed up to protest with signs and bullhorn in hand. They formed two long lines from the building entrance to the parking lot at Kennedy Elementary, in essence creating an intimidating gauntlet for event attendees. Nevertheless, an estimated 150 interested people attended. Surprisingly, but most welcomed, were about two dozen or more Somali attendees who stayed throughout Pastor Dakdok’s two-plus hour presentation.

Dakdok did not soften his anti-Islamic ideology message, despite the presence of the Somali attendees. Throughout his strong message of concern about Islam’s tenets of belief as expressed in the Qur’an and other Islamic sacred texts, Islamic law and worldwide terrorism by Islam’s adherents, the Somali attendees remained calm and attentive.

At varying periods during the presentation a half-dozen or so Somali visited with THEE Book Club supporters in the lobby. True interfaith dialogue occurred as individual Somali were able to express their feelings, concerns and experiences. At the same time, Christian attendees were able to express love and compassion and at the same time share words of Biblical insight. Biblical and Qur’anic concepts were shared and compared and questions answered about Christian beliefs. Clearly, some Somali were searching for answers and understanding.

Dakdok.20191107_213019

Perhaps the most telling moment of the event occurred at the end, long after the media left and had formed its foregone conclusion—that Dakdok is an anti-Muslim hate monger. However, to his credit, after his passionate presentation, Dakdok opened the time for attendees to ask questions. Many Somali took the opportunity to express their concerns, quote the Qur’an and provide opposing positions to Dakdok. The dialogue that occurred, while not necessarily supporting Somali Islamic beliefs, was cordial and respectful.

The dialogue was apparently so intriguing, that after the meeting room cleared out, about a dozen Somali, Pastor Dakdok, and a few THEE Book Club supporters stayed and continued to have an enthusiastic and friendly discussion about Islamic and Christian beliefs. This after-event gathering continued for over an hour. It was a time of true interfaith dialogue where both Christian and Islam adherents came together to share their perspectives and understandings about their strong beliefs. Verses from both the Qur’an and Bible were freely shared. Somali felt free to express their beliefs, while Christians were free to share their testimonies and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Jesus of the Bible IS NOT the Jesus of the Qur’an

November 5, 2019

For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

2 John 1:7

I Love Jesus Because I’m Muslim! That is the new assailant message of Islam in Europe and America and it is being widely embraced by the interfaith crowd. Let me be clear on two things: First, Muslims do not love the real Jesus of the Bible and, second, the Jesus of the Qur’an is not the Jesus of the Bible or the Son of God that Christ followers adore and worship.

iERA “I Love Jesus” exhibit in Tennessee.

According to the November 1, 2019 online issue of the Nashville Tennessean (https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/religion/2019/11/01/islamic-center-of-tennessee-is-bringing-a-traveling-exhibit-on-jesus-to-nashville/3998069002/), Islamists throughout America have shifted into high gear with the overt aid of the dhimmi (those living under Islamic rule) interfaith groups in full blown assault against anyone, including devout followers of Christ, who dare to try and speak the truth about Islam.

Note, in the banner to the left, they are also proselytizing America’s large Spanish-speaking population. In many cases, among Spanish heritage Roman Catholics, it is not a hard sell, since the Vatican asserts that Catholics and Muslims are “brothers and sisters” that share the same God and Abrahamic lineage.

Will Islam Take Over the World?

October 25, 2019

James F. Gauss, Ph.D.

(Excerpted from Understanding Islam in the Light of Christianity)

Islam will dominate the world

Every Muslim is taught that the Qur’an and other Islamic sacred texts are the unchangeable, perfect word of Allah and must be adhered to. Why should the non-Muslim world be concerned? The Islamic faith is growing by leaps and bounds. Not so much because new converts are convinced of its redeeming theology, but because Muslim populations have some of the highest birthrates in the world. In highly populated Muslim countries and throughout Islamic history, “converts” are often won over through coercion, oppression and threats to one’s wellbeing.

Perhaps the naiveté of the Western world can be summed up in the assessment of Islam’s future dominance by Pavel Kohout of the Center for Economics and Politics in Prague. In an article titled, Why al-Qaeda Will Dominate the European Union, published October 7, 2004. Kohout wrote:

The first reason extreme Islam will prevail is the intellectual advantage that al-Qaeda leaders have over western European politicians. The latter want to believe that there is no clash of civilizations; that terrorism is just a product of misery and lack of education; that the solution lies in a multicultural, tolerant society; and that the stubbornness of the Americans and Israelis is to blame for all the problems.

. . . The second reason is the unification of foreign policy in the EU [European Union]. In the UN [United Nations], all member states of the European Union dutifully voted against Israel as a flock of sheep under the leadership of France. France is home to millions of Muslims, who are a decisive factor in its politics.

. . . The third reason is an advantage of the Islamic society in terms of evolution: a high birthrate.

The late but prominent educator and author, Dr. Samuel L. Blumenfeld, wrote in 2006 that, “In 20 to 50 years Western Europe may be dominated by Muslims who will claim it as a Waqf”—a territory for Islamic purposes or Muslim religious endowment (WorldNetDaily, February 14, 2006). In view of the Islamic immigrant invasion of Europe starting in 2015, Dr. Blumenfeld’s projection could arrive sooner than thought.

Many European Union countries are already under heavy political, social and economic assault from the invasion of mostly Muslim refugees from war-torn regions of the Middle East, as well as from regions of South Asia. In addition to the societal upheaval, this has resulted in a rapidly growing migrant population requiring much governmental support. Many of the Muslims, as demonstrated almost daily by their acts of terror, physical assaults and property damage, do not have peaceful intentions. If Islam becomes the dominating force in Western Europe, will Canada and the United States be far behind?

One of the most challenging situations for the European Union members, and the majority of the countries of the West, is the declining birth rates of their native populations. While the birthrate among the majority of Western societies has plummeted over the last few decades, the birthrate among many Muslim countries remains 2-3 times that of the United States, Canada and all European Union countries.

In 2016, according to Eurostat Statistics (https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/statistics-explained/index.php/ Fertility_statistics), while Muslims are rapidly populating Europe, all 28 European Union member states have birth rates below the 2.1 live births per woman to replace their dying populations. The average fertility rate for all EU countries was 1.6 live births. Seventeen countries are at or below the EU average. Twelve EU countries are expected to have Muslim populations of five percent or more by 2030. They include: Austria (9.3% Muslim), Belgium (10.2%), Bulgaria (15.7%), Cyprus (22.7%), Denmark (5.6%), France (10.3%), Germany (7.1%), Italy (5.4%), Netherlands (7.8%), Sweden (9.9%) and the United Kingdom (8.2%). Those estimates, however, could be conservative if the current rate of Muslim migration into Europe persists.

The native populations of the EU countries are dying out, while their Muslim populations are expanding at two to three times the local inhabitants.

The 2017 estimate of birth rates in 224 countries published by the CIA World Factbook clearly illustrate the problem and what awaits the Western world. Of the 50 Muslim countries, 37 of them have replacement birth rates above 2.1 births per woman. Forty-nine of the fifty have birth rates that exceed the EU average birth rate of 1.6 live births per woman. The United States replacement birth rate in 2017 dropped to 1.87, the lowest in thirty years. Canada was even worse with a birth rate of only 1.60, the 183rd lowest in the world.

Abortions Further Exasperate the Problem. To further exacerbate the declining populations in the non-Muslim world is the high rate of abortions. From 1973 to 2013 (40 years), there have been estimated 1.72 billion babies aborted worldwide; the large majority in the non-Muslim world. Current abortion statistics are hard to come by, with the most recent in 2015, but only for a small percentage of the world’s countries. Strick, fundamentalist Muslim countries have low abortion rates (less than one per thousand live births), while more liberal or Soviet Union Republics (Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan) have much higher rates (10-23/1000). Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973, the United States has aborted over 61 million babies (U.S.AbortionClock.org) with a 2015 rate of 17.13/1000 births. EU countries and Canada also have high rates, ranging from around 10-25 abortions per 1000 live births.

It would appear, that while many non-Muslim countries are killing off their lifeblood, Muslims, for the most part, are re-populating the earth.

America’s Declining Birth Rate. Another ominous sign for America, is the declining birth rate. Just like in Europe, the U.S. Census Bureau reported at the end of 2018, that the birth rate for women in the United States had fallen below the replacement rate of 2.1 births per woman, to 1.7. According to the Bureau, America’s growth rate is the slowest since 1937.

“‘The aging population is starting to take its toll,’ said William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution. ‘I think we need to get used to the fact that we are now a slow-growth country.’”

“If the pattern continues, immigrants will soon be more important to population gains than the so-called natural increase,” wrote New York Times’ writer, Sabrina Tavernise.

According to The World Bank (https://data.worldbank.org), America has not had a replacement birth rate (fertility rate) since 2008, when the rate fell to 2.072 births per woman. The rate has continued to plummet each year, and stood at 1.80 in 2016. Remember, the fertility rate among the majority of Muslim societies is significantly above the replacement birth rate.

Seeds of Destruction? Iranian born American, Amil Imani, warns the West that, “within the very fabric of the free world is [sic] the seeds of its own destruction. It contains provisions that make it vulnerable to its demise. And the forces of tyranny, the antithesis of those of liberty, craftily exploit those provisions to prevail.” Imani claims that the isms of Fascism, Nazism and Communism are dead, but that, “International Islam, however, is multidimensional, very alive and highly virulent. No society, no local community, no nations [sic] or region of the world is spared from its infiltration.”

Imani’s warning rings true for the United States, where Islam and its adherents have found a very fertile ground in the politically correct, cultural diversity environment. There is no country in the world that is more culturally diverse than America and, therein, could lay its downfall. As America becomes more accepting of any belief system and way of life, the more it stands for less of the founding principles set forth by its Founders and the United States Constitution. It is somewhat ironic, yet telling, that many Muslim refugees that are escaping the horrors of their homeland, are still willing to embrace the very belief system that caused their terror and reasons for fleeing.

Islam in America’s Universities

October 9, 2019

female-muslim-grads-302x250

James F. Gauss

Islam has also fully invaded many Christian colleges, universities and seminaries with school religious departments hiring Muslims to teach vulnerable and gullible students the validity of Islam as a world belief system. Or, they have Christian professors teaching courses on Islam and its validity and similarity to Christianity.

A case in point (there are many that could be cited) is Robert F. Shedinger, Professor of Religion at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. In 2009, Shedinger published a book with the provocative title, Was Jesus a Muslim?: Questioning Categories in the Study of Religion. I confess that I have not read his book, but I watched a YouTube interview he gave on his book. In the interview Shedinger said he was challenged by a Muslim student on his understanding of Islam. After much research, he answered his own question (the title of the book) and concluded that, indeed, “Yes, even as a Christian, I have to say yes to that.” He further concluded, Islam is not a religion but a “social justice movement and that was what Jesus was all about.” So, according to Shedinger, Jesus was a Muslim in the sense of being a social justice warrior just like Muhammad. For Shedinger, Jesus was all about social justice, not about preaching a Gospel of repentance and salvation, something that Muhammad knew nothing about and, in fact, preached the dead opposite. No wonder Lutherans are all in on interfaith dialogue with Muslims. Shedinger’s whole purpose is to find ways for Muslims and Christians to ignore their theological differences and unite on purely social justice issues—issues which Muslims and Bible-believing Christians are diametrically opposed.

In 2015, Professor Shedinger followed up this effort with another offensive title, Jesus and Jihad: Reclaiming the Prophetic Heart of Christianity and Islam. No, I have not read this book either, but here is what the promotion for it says, in part, on Amazon:

When rescued from his Christian pietistic misinterpretations, Jesus emerges as a highly prophetic figure of resistance to the injustices authorized by Roman imperial power. As Muslims reengage an authentic understanding of jihad, and Christians, through a renewed understanding of jihad, meet the prophetic Jesus from whom they have become estranged, a new era of Christian-Muslim cooperation in the struggle against injustice can become the norm, replacing the current antipathy dividing these communities with a passion to reclaim once again a prophetic heart in service to a hurting world. “”Shedinger is at it again, making high-order conceptual mischief for the sake of interreligious wisdom. In this gem of a book, he brilliantly argues that Jesus was a jihadi. Shedinger makes this provocative claim because he wants Christians to learn that ‘jihad’ is spiritual and social struggle against every form of injustice. Shedinger shows that Christians desperately need this Muslim wisdom in order to be truly Christian. A must-read!”” –John J. Thatamanil, Associate Professor of Theology and World Religions, Union Theological Seminary.

Notably, this book has received one 5-star rating—from a Muslim.

So, not only was Jesus a social justice warrior, but he was a jihadi in the image of Muhammad. Good grief! Such heresy! No wonder university students are confused and being turned into social justice druggies with no concept or understanding of true Christianity or true Islam. One must read Understanding Islam in the Light of Christianity to get the accurate and Biblical view of Christianity and Islam; Jesus and Muhammad and Islam’s true view and understanding of jihad.

Across the United States Islamic research institutes, funded by the royal family of Saudi Arabia have crept into such prestigious American institutions of higher learning as American University in Washington, D.C., Duke University, Howard University, John Hopkins University, Georgetown University, Syracuse University and many other institutions of higher learning. To demonstrate their infinite capacity for compassion toward the U.S. after the September 11, 2001 attacks, the Saudis shortly thereafter pledged one billion U.S. dollars—not for the victims of the attacks, but—to evangelize American college campuses and prisons in order to gain more terrorist converts to their radical brand of Wahhabi Islam. Establishment of such institutes and mosques is much more wide spread across Europe where Islam is rapidly gaining a solid foothold.

The degree and ease with which Islam has crept into America’s primary and secondary school systems in the early 21st century is scary and mind-blowing. It has been facilitated by ignorant and clueless staff, administrators, school boards, boards of trustees and mostly ignored by parents and communities. The rapid surge has been largely funded and implemented by the Arab kingdoms of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which possess two of the most radical forms of Islam.

In the past few years, as reported by Foreign Schools Gift and Contracts Report (https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/about/data-center/school/foreign-gifts), from January 1, 2012 to June 30, 2018 a large number of American universities received hundreds of millions in donations and “contract” monies from Muslim countries—mostly Arab countries and mainly Saudi Arabia and Qatar. While the largest portion of the monies received is designated as “contracts,” presumably for tuition and fees for foreign Muslim students, there was also millions designated as “gifts” and research.

For instance, the University of Arkansas, in a four year period, from June 30, 2013 to June 30, 2017, took in $49.648 million from just three Muslim countries, Iraq, Kurdistan and Saudi Arabia. Over $40 million came from the Republic of Iraq, Higher Committee. Johns Hopkins University, in Baltimore, Maryland, from January 30, 2012 to June 1, 2018, received almost $64 million from over 20 Muslim countries—all of it designated as “monetary gifts.” George Mason University, in Fairfax, Virginia received $64.875 million noted as “contracts” from January 23, 2012 to July 31, 2017. The great majority came from the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia.

The Associated Press, in analyzing the data, determined that at least $354 million went to 37 American institutions of higher learning from the Saudi Arabia alone—government or its controlled institutions—since 2011. Most of the money was for Saudi students attending various schools. Another $114 million was not accounted for as a result of some schools not disclosing the specific source of Saudi Arabian funding. This included $40 million to Johns Hopkins University and $28 million to Harvard University.

As reported in The Daily Caller on October 31, 2018, during the period of 2011-2016, Georgetown University (a Jesuit school) received almost $400 million from 18 foreign countries. However, 86.3 percent or $344-plus million came from five Muslim countries, of which Qatar was the largest contributor with $332.8 million.

In another attempt to control the campus narrative on Islam, the Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada (MSA) or MSA National was established by members of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1963 on the campus of the University of Illinois. The MSA is essentially a sect of the radical Wahhabi brand of Islam of Saudi Arabia and is heavily supported by the Saudis. As of 2018 there were an estimated 600 U.S. campus chapters of MSA.

In the opinion of Alex Alexiev, of the Center for Security Policy, “The Saudis over the years set up a number of large front organizations, such as the Al Haramain Foundation, the Muslim World League, the World Assembly of Muslim Youth, and a great number of Islamic ‘charities.’

“MSA National was the precursor of ISNA [the Islamic Society of North America], ICNA [the Islamic Circle of North America], MAYA [the Muslim Arab Youth Association], IMA [the Islamic Medical Association of North America], AMSS [the Association of Muslim Social Scientists], AMSE [the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers], MYNA [Muslim Youth of North America], Islamic Book Service, and the North American Islamic Trust.”

“The majority of Muslim Student Associations at U.S. colleges are dominated by Islamist and anti-American agendas, as are most of the numerous Islamic centers and schools financed by the Saudis. Intolerance and outright rejection of American values and democratic ideals are often taught also in the growing number of Deobandi schools that are frequently subsidized by the Saudis.”

Islamophobia—for University Credit. In a publication called, Higher Education Today, one of the two authors who was a “higher education administrator,” shared a distasteful experience she had with the parent of a prospective student. She classified it as an “Islamophobic” incident. She and her co-author went on to write: 

Muslim Americans and international Muslim students on campuses around the country experience blatant Islamophobia and microaggressions in many forms. Research shows microaggressions include stares in public, feelings of alienation and assumptions of religious homogeneity. Unfortunately, such experiences are often a reflection of the negative attitudes toward Muslims held by a significant portion of society. 

No doubt her experience was distasteful, inappropriate and hurtful, but in no way did it represent “a significant portion of society.” Accusations of Islamophobia has become the new catch phrase for everything distasteful or assumed to be negative about Muslims. It has become what anti-Semitism has been for the Jews. There are, indeed, way too many people, who are small-minded and hateful, that take out their frustrations on others they perceive to be offended by, but that is the exception in America, not the rule. America and Americans are still among the most accepting, generous and compassionate people, often going the second and third mile to be kind or help someone in need.

In going to, what would appear to be the extreme on the issue of Islamophobia, prestigious Georgetown University has established a whole curriculum around the subject. It is, of course, supported with a generous donation of $20 million from the Saudi royal family to the school’s Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (CMCU), houses the “Bridge Initiative” and the “research project” on “the problem of Islamophobia.”

It is surprising, that among higher academics, no one seems to have discovered that Islam is not a race. Islam is an ideology made up of people from many ethnic and racial backgrounds. Some of the “key terms” listed in the Syllabus that are presumably catch words or offensive, include: Anti-Muslim Racism, Capitalism, Colonialism, Countering Violent Extremism, Empire, Gender Violence, Gender, Homonationalism, Islamophobia, Patriot Act and a host of other words or phrases. The Syllabus is too lengthy to review here, but the reader is encouraged to visit the website linked to this reference.

I will close with this absurdity. Todd Starnes, of Fox News, reported in March, 2018, that to sneeze in the library of Simmons College in Boston, and someone says, “God bless you” it could be considered an “Islamophobic microaggression.”

In 2017, a sophomore student, Marshall Polston, at Rollins College in Florida was suspended because he challenged his Muslim professor who asserted that the crucifixion of Jesus never happened.

“Our university should be a place where free-speech flashes and ideas can be spoken of without punishment or fear of retribution,” Polston stated.

The Muslim professor claimed that she felt threatened by Polston’s comments, and without due process, he was disciplined by the school.

Islam in America’s Schools–The Plan

September 17, 2019

James F. Gauss, Ph.D.

On January 8, 2018, Pamela Gellar, the author of, Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance, posted a video from the Muslim Americans Political Awareness Conference on August 7, 1989. The video is of a presentation by Sharifa Alkhateeb, founder of the North American Council for Muslim Women, and a strong advocate of getting the story of Islam into America’s schools. She is often wrongly identified on the Internet and Face Book posts as Cong. Rashida Tlaib. However, Alkhateeb died October 21, 2004.

In the video she clearly discloses what should be the goal of Muslims of getting Islam into American education. Her presentation can be viewed here: https://gellerreport.com/2019/01/muslim-leader-convert-all-americans-2islam.html/

Sharifa-Alkhateeb.1989

Sharifa Alkhateeb, August 7, 1989

If the date of this presentation is an earmark for Islam’s infiltration of America’s schools, then Muslims, under the guidance of the Muslim Brotherhood have had a 30-year head start in bringing Islam to our children and grandchildren while we slept and largely ignored the threat.

Excerpts of Sharifa Alkhateeb’s speech:

Education is one of the most important areas Muslims have to address. Our final objective is create our Islamic systems not just for Muslims for all other Americans.

Look at them (non-Muslim Americans) as potential Muslims—we have an obligation to convert them.

Making America Muslim—all Americans Muslim.

We must have short range goals. We must be calculated about it.

Education is political—extremely political.

We’re not American, we’re Muslim.”

I brought my children up to think of themselves first, last and always as Muslims.

“I am not American, I am Muslim”

We are in the process of developing Islamic education for our children, public schools and school systems that span the country.

We want non-Muslims to be signing up for them. Education is just one part of our agenda.

We must be involved at every level, the local level, county state, national, international level. How? As a distinct Islamic entity.

We will not be part of the great American melting pot. We do not want to melt into America. We want to go into American society with Islamic ideals and revamp their thinking. We want to turn them into Muslims.

Go to the schools [sic] board meetings, find out what they’re doing with your kids in the public schools. Find out what they are talking about, what their ideas are. You can become an office assistant, you can become a reading assistant, you can become an [sic] library assistant, and give/buy Islamic books or get them from organizations and give them to your local school library.

You should try, we should all be involved in developing Arabic language courses in the public schools because one way of introducing non-Muslims to Islam is to have [them] come and learn Arabic language courses. Don’t forget Classical Arabic is the Quranic Arabic, so when we say Arabic course we are talking about classical Arabic and our real agenda is Quranic Arabic and that’s a good way to introduce Islam to on-Muslims.

Islamic Curriculum Invades America’s Schools. The National Teacher Training Institute, created in 1989 as an outreach of New York’s thirteenWNET public television, produces teacher training and lesson videos for America’s public schools. In 2005, with funding from the U.S. Department of Education, it produced the video series, Access Islam and offers ten lesson plans for upper elementary and middle school students, starting in grades 4-8. All the glories and niceties of Islam that impressionable youth need to know are provided. The ten Lesson Plans include: Lesson 1, Religion and the First Amendment; Lesson 2, The Five Pillars of Islam; Lesson 3, Salat: Prayer in Muslim Life; Lesson 4, Ramadan Observance; Lesson 5, Qur’an: Sacred Scripture of Islam; Lesson 6, The Hajj: Journey to Mecca; Lesson 7, Scholarship and Learning in Islam; Lesson 8, Islam in America; Lesson 9, Women in Islam; Lesson 10, Art in the Muslim World. No corresponding lesson plan on the NTTI site on Christianity or Judaism could be found by this author.

William J. Bennetta (now deceased), the sole creator and president of The Textbook League, made it his mission in life to review textbooks being used in America’s schools. His reviews and criticisms were much appreciated and respected. In 2003, he took upon himself to review the Arab World Studies Notebook. He summarized his review in an e-mail letter of October 8, 2003, to a Stuart Elliot in Wichita, Kansas, who had enquired of his findings.

Writing an analysis of a patently fraudulent publication is the most demanding task of all, for this reason: Although one can see immediately that the publication is a hoax, one still must give an extraordinary amount of time to studying it and to demonstrating its deceitfulness in some detail.

. . . the “Notebook” is published jointly by the Middle East Policy Council and by “AWAIR: Arab World And Islamic Resources and School Services.”

. . . The Notebook is a vehicle for disseminating disinformation, including a multitude of false, distorted or utterly absurd claims that are presented as historical facts. I infer that the “Notebook” has three principal purposes: inducing teachers to embrace Islamic religious beliefs; inducing teachers to embrace political views that are favored by the MEPC and AWAIR; and impelling teachers to disseminate those religious beliefs . . . in schools.

CAIR Controls America’s Schools. The Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has a stranglehold on America’s primary schools. One trait the majority of Muslims illustrate, that Christians typically do not, is aggressiveness. CAIR is demanding and forcing America’s school systems to cower to ever Islamic whim. If a school board member, educator, school administrator steps out of line, CAIR is quick to threaten a lawsuit. As a Muslim Brotherhood front group, they are sufficiently funded to cause havoc for small and medium size school districts.

A case in point. In November, 2009, at one of Minnesota’s larger high schools, a white student reportedly wrote an essay for English class critical of the special treatment of Somali students. In the original report from WCCO (Minneapolis), “The white student was briefly suspended, but on Monday, he was attacked when a fight erupted between about 20 Somali and [four] white students.” Locally, it was reported that the blogging student was taken to the hospital and kept overnight for fear of bleeding on the brain.

Seven unidentified students were suspended. The essayist was suspended four days “for safety” reasons.

CAIR-MN was quick to respond, filing a harassment & discrimination complaint/suit against the school claiming Somali students at the school were subject to unfair treatment and repeated racial discrimination. The U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice also got involved. In April, 2011, a “settlement” was reached with the high school and its administration. CAIR-MN reported, “The agreement calls on the school district to take steps such as issuing an anti-harassment statement, retaining a consultant to study and determine steps needed to effectively respond to harassment, reviewing and revising harassment-related policies and procedures, organizing staff trainings on reporting incidents of harassments, and submitting monitoring reports to federal agencies for the next three years.”

The Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliate CAIR are well on their way of establishing the radical Islamic agenda for America. As presented in the Muslim Brotherhood’s An Explanatory Memorandum of May 22, 1991, “The general strategic goal of the Group in America which was approved by the Shura Council and the Organizational Conference for the year [I987] is ‘Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is.’”

According to the “Memo” there are five stages to accomplishing the Islamitization of America.

Settlement: “That Islam and its Movement become a part of the homeland it lives in.”

Establishment: “That Islam turns into firmly-rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built.”

Stability: “That Islam is stable in the land on which its people move.”

Enablement: “That Islam is enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country in which it moves.”

Rooting: “That Islam is resident and not a passing thing, or rooted “entrenched” in the soil of the spot where it moves and not a strange plant to it.”

Islam, thanks to the millions of ignorant dhimmis (cooperative non-Muslims), has successfully infiltrated every aspect of American life.

How have they been so successful so quickly is illustrated in the fulfillment of another Muslim Brotherhood strategy, the “Civilization-Jihadist Process.”

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan [the brethren] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen [Islamic guerilla fighters] be equal.

Without the willing cooperation of school boards, teachers, university board of regents, professors and churches throughout the country, it is clear that the objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamic domination of America could not be established. America is freely feeding the monster that desires to devour us.
