Have Muslim Extremists Infiltrated the Government?

October 26, 2009


Fox News is reporting that Rep. Sue Myrick of North Carolina, and three other lawmakers are investigating whether the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. non-profit Muslim activist group associated with Islamist terrorist groups such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, has placed their operatives as interns on the staffs of members of targeted national security-related Congressional committees, including the Intelligence, Judiciary and Homeland Security Committees.

Rep. Sue Myrick: It’s frightening to think that an organization with clear-cut ties to terrorism could have a hand in influencing policy — especially national security policy — within our government. The investigations that we’re asking for are simple, and I’m hopeful that they will bring to light any and all information regarding the goals of CAIR.

CAIR, which claims to be a civil rights organization, is classified as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt, tax-deductible charity under Internal Revenue Service designations, and as such, the group does not pay taxes and is allowed to deduct its contributions.  Its real motives appear not to be so benign. CAIR’s own internal memos point to an organization which exercises an extensive, highly aggressive lobbying operation which attempts to directly influence policy outcomes, which would put the organization in direct violation of their non-profit, tax exempt status.

In 2008, CAIR was named as a co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism case in Dallas, Texas, which led to guilty verdicts on 108 charges based on funneling more than $12 million to HAMAS.  Later that same year, the FBI cut all ties with CAIR (see previous NewsrealBlog CAIR related posts here).

So what exactly is CAIR’s goal in trying to put its spies on the various committees? According to the authors of a new book titled Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America, by Paul Sperry and Paul David Gaubatz, the ultimate goal is no less that the destruction of Western civilization itself.

In a six-month undercover sting operation of the group, Sperry and Gaubatz claim that CAIR is linked to an organized crime network made up of more than 100 other Muslim front groups all falling under the umbrella of the “U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.” The book’s charges are deemed serious enough for Myrick and the other lawmakers (Trent Franks of Arizona, Paul Broun of Georgia and John Shadegg of Arizona) to request the CAIR probe.

Trent Franks: “I take the charges levied against CAIR and laid out in this book very seriously because they affect our national security. This Congress must be deliberate in taking a strong stance against those groups and organizations that align themselves with terrorists. We live in a post-9/11 world where the coincidence of nuclear proliferation and Islamic terrorism pose a very dangerous combination and real threat to America’s   national security. That is why it is critical, in light of the well-supported documents and information, that the U.S. Congress take this issue seriously.

CAIR, for its part, dismisses the allegations of government infiltration.

“If it wasn’t so insidious, it would be laughable,” CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told “What are their charges? CAIR seeks political participation of Muslims. I’m shocked.”

Hooper went on to accuse the Republican representatives of being “Muslim bashers,” aiming to exclude Muslims from the political process.

Ibrahim Hooper: God forbid American Muslims take part in the political process and exercise their rights…If these people weren’t so hate-filled, it would be laughable, but unfortunately they have an audience and, given their positions, it’s going to get picked up by the hate blogs.

The “hate blogs” just might pick up this story eventually. In the meantime, you heard it here first.

    Hooper: “CAIR seeks political participation of Muslims.”

    That is scary. Keep islam out of our government because it is an opposing, inflexable governmental system that is incompatible with western civilization. Their influence has only one end goal and that is to slowly and stealthily impose sharia into our system until the US is democratically dead.

    “Hooper went on to accuse the Republican representatives of being “Muslim bashers,” aiming to exclude Muslims from the political process.”

      What you say sounds right…

      All I have to add, is the thought that even if they haven’t already penetrated the upper levels of our government, the fact that the the guy who runs the UN’s Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s first name is Mohammed, is more than sufficient to scare the living crap out of me !

    Who controls western governments? Neocons were at the forefront of supporting the destruction of Bosnia and support of Kosovo.

    Tom Lantos (D-Ca.), sponsor of the latest House resolution supporting the independence of “Kosova,” uttered the following words at a recent hearing (addressing Nicholas Burns of the State Department):

    “Let me just raise a few items, Mr. Secretary. The first one: just a reminder to the predominantly Muslim-led governments in this world that here is yet another example that the United States leads the way for the creation of a predominantly Muslim country in the very heart of Europe. This should be noted by both responsible leaders of Islamic governments, such as Indonesia, and also for jihadists of all color and hue. The United States’ principles are universal, and in this instance, the United States stands foursquare for the creation of an overwhelmingly Muslim country in the very heart of Europe.”

    There was a naive belief in the US that they could earn chips by pleasing the Muslims in Kosovo and cash those chips the Mid-east, against Iran and in Propaganda in the Muslim world. What a tragically idiotic philosophy that will prove to be.

    Its about time Washington and the White House wake up to the evil that lurks in America. Unfortunately the current residents of the White House are more likely to welcome the Radical CAIR group then investigate them. Wasn’t it not long ago that Eric Holder the White House strongman let go free two black panthers who had intimidated voters outside a polling area in Philadelphia? Instead of giving cover to the CIA for defending our freedoms, Holder is now investigating the CIA.

    In Europe, Muslim groups are pushing Sharia Law which allows for the honor killing of a daughter for simply becoming to westernized. Sharia Law that says Women are not allowed to hold high office in government. Sharia Law that allows for lashing women for showing their ankles. Sharia Law that allows for the stoning to death of women for being unfaithful to their husband.

    It was Muslims that flew the two planes into the twin towers. It was Muslims that crashed a plane in pennsylvania after the brave souls aboard the plane fought till they died to prevent the terrorist muslims from completing their hateful mission. Its Muslims that are fighting our soilders on the battlefield in Afghanistan.

    Its time CAIR is investigated and all Tax exemptions taking away. Considering that CAIR has already been caught funding Hamas, I find it hard to believe that the justice department allows CAIR to remain an activist organization. Time to deport the criminal activists back the Middle east where they belong.

    “Ibrahim Hooper: God forbid American Muslims take part in the political process and exercise their rights…”

    In Britain, one-third of Muslims want Sharia law to replace British law. How many American Muslims want Sharia over the Constitution? Whatever the number is, I do NOT want that group to “exercise their rights.”

    I first saw the internet story on this on Oct 15th at
    (JW is one of the FrontPage Magazine websites run by Robert Spencer one of the leading non-Leftist, non-Muslim scholars of Islam in America today. It is dedicated to Islamist activity and related Human Rights and 1st Amendment issues.

    Robert had found the story in The Hill on Oct 14th. Fox seems to be using the same CAIR quote but in the JW story and in The Hill there is an interesting addition to the middle of Ibrahim Hooper’s quote:

    Hooper: “I suppose they’re going to investigate the Muslim Staffers Association next.”

    So I did. See the results of my web investigation of the MCSA and their Executive Committee at The Heretics Crusade.

      England now has over 85 Sharia courts that deal strictly with Muslims and is mostly exempt from British laws. They started out as interns and clerks.

      These are facts RGG, those scary things that go bump in the night. The Muslims have laid out, in detail, their strategy. And they are living up to their plans. We ignore them at our peril, we tolerate you because of our constitution.

    Of course they have infiltrated all of our society. We allow them to. We are scared! And scared people act irrationally. So the real question is how did we become so weak and scared?

    We doubt the very core values of our civilization, diversity lives supreme and any other culture other than our own must be shown to be better than ours.We teach children in our public schools self-loathing, the joys of the multicultural delusions, and we fail to show the superiority of our own way of life, to teach our children our history.(Other than slavery and colonialism and everything negative about America) We have emboldened the Muslims and confirmed that we are decadent and heading for failure.

    Someone must fill the vacuum, why not they? This is the ultimate goal of all global jihadist , in their own words, which we ignore , and most of non acting terrorist Muslims(Or what you would call ‘Moderates’) happily supply money and assistance.
    Slowly and stealthily they move in and around us. Will we officially celebrate their infiltration? Hawaii’s recently passed “Islam Day” , Sept. 29. what do you think?

    Read the Koran, note the objectives, it’s all there. It creeps like a grand moss, as is evident in Europe, now without subterfuge. Muslim communities in the U.K. began infiltration many years ago; some now “govern” themselves under Sharia law while publicly stating they live under British law. It has been insidious to watch the spread in Britain and the rest of Europe. Weak, ineffective and cowardly government leaders were the causes there, and it can and will happen here unless we resolve to stop the rot. CAIR and other Muslim groups here are as committed to converting the infidel and taking his lands as they have been in Europe. That is their mantra, and make no mistake about that. The Grand Prize, of course, is America. We ignore this at our peril.

    WE should thank Sue Myrick for her vigilance. But it is the duty of every American to know our own history and our national foundation in order to compare and contrast the so-called law of shari’a. Despite the claims of its followers, it is not inspired by the Almighty. At its core it is devilishly evil inspired by the one who chose to make himself as high as God. While we wallow in our pools of pleasure and surfeiting, the water of “tolerance” has been being heated by those who are determined to place all the world in the power of Islam. May God help us to escape the subtle influence that is growing daily. It is alarming to think there are individuals in the government who have access to all government files. And whose intentions are to use the information to either make us their slaves or destroy us if we are Jews or Christians. Wake up, America!!

    All American taxpayers are funding Sharia law through the majority ownership in AIG.

    AIG engages in Shariah-compliant financing which subjects certain financial activities, including investments, to the dictates of Islamic law and the Islamic religion. This specifically includes any profits or interest obtained through such financial activities. AIG itself describes “Sharia” as “Islamic law based on the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet. With the aid of taxpayer funds provided by Congress, AIG employs a “Shariah Supervisory Committee, ” which is comprised of the following members: Sheikh Nizam Yaquby from Bahrain, Dr. Mohammed Ali Elgari from Saudi Arabia, and Dr. Muhammed Imran Ashraf Usmani from Pakistan. Dr. Usmani is the son, student, and dedicated disciple of Mufti Taqi Usmani, who is the leading Shariah authority for Shariah-compliant finance in the world and the author of a book translated into English in 1999 that includes an entire chapter dedicated to explaining why a Western Muslim must engage in violent jihad against his own country or government. According to AIG, the role of its Shariah authority “is to review our operations, supervise its development of Islamic products, and determine Shariah compliance of these products and our investments.” An important element of Shariah-compliant financing is a form of obligatory charitable contribution called zakat, which is a religious tax for assisting those that “struggle for Allah.” The amount of this tax is between 2.5% and 20%, depending upon the source of the wealth. The zakat religious tax is used to financially support Islamic “charities, ” some of which have ties to terrorist organizations that are hostile to the United States and all other “infidels, ” which includes Christians and Jews. The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, an example of an Islamic “charity” that qualifies for receipt of the zakat, was recently convicted by a federal jury for providing millions of dollars to Islamic terrorist organizations. As a direct consequence of the taxpayer funds appropriated and expended to purchase and financially support AIG, the federal government is now the owner of a corporation engaged in the business of collecting religious taxes to fund interests adverse to the United States, Christians, Jews, and all other “infidels” under Islamic law.

    The use of these taxpayer funds to approve, promote, endorse, support, and fund these Shariah-based Islamic religious activities violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution
