Is There a Double Standard Favoring Jihadis?

On Saturday April 14th, less than two years after 49 people were killed by muslim Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Aisha Cultural Center hosted a “Positive Parenting Skills” conference at the Greenwood Lakes Middle School in Orlando, featuring Islamic scholar Dr. M. Rateb Al-Nabulsi.

Al-Nabulsi is a Syrian Sheikh who calls for the killing of gays and Jews.

ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) was identified by evidence in the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history – US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Northern District of Texas, 2008 – as being a part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Movement with the stated objective of waging “Civilization Jihad” to overthrow the U.S. government and establishing an Islamic State under sharia (Islamic law).

Why did the local government approve this event and why did local police/sheriff’s offices provide security for this event?

When a local camera crew opposed to the event showed up, the police were quick to threaten arrest for trespassing.  Why?

Local elected officials and police swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution against seditious threats like this.

Will Greenwood Lakes Middle School in Orlando invite Understanding the Threat (UTT) to teach a session on American’s Founding Principles?   How about classes on the Muslim Brotherhood network in Florida, sharia, and the threat these pose to local Florida communities?

UTT is still waiting for a response to our call.

Khaled Bahgat, a muslim from Egypt, is the liaison officer between the Columbus (OH) Police Department and the city’s muslims, particularly Somali refugees.  Does the Columbus Police Department have a designated Catholic officer to outreach to the Christian community?

 

Middletown (PA) Patrol Officer Mark Hovan was suspended  for 10 days for attending Catholic Mass at the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church during his patrol shift.  Yet, would the Middletown Police Chief have an issue if muslim officers when to prayers at a mosque?

The photo above shows two Los Angeles police officers praying at the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Center of Southern California.

Has the LAPD suspended them and launched an investigation as to why their officers are associating themselves with a jihadi mosque?

Is it unprofessional for police departments to have different standards for Christian officers and muslim officers?

Is it legal for police departments to have different standards for Christian officers and muslim officers?

 

Muslim Brother/Hamas leader Ahmed Bedier speaks inside the Florida State House at Muslim Capitol Day hosted by Hamas (CAIR)

Texas Hamas leader Mustafa Carroll (far right) at the Texas Capitol Day hosted by Hamas (CAIR)

Muslim Capitol Day occurs all over the United States every year, and local/state police protect the participants despite the fact the events are hosted by Hamas doing business as CAIR and advance the jihadi agenda of Civilization Jihad.

What should police officers do when they are given an unlawful order to support a designated terrorist organization and it’s events?

 

Being the leader of Hamas in Arizona (dba CAIR) did not prevent Mohamed El-Sharkawy from being employed with American Airlines and training employees at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport.  As a matter of fact American Airlines gave El-Sharkawy an award and defended him when UTT questioned them about employing a Hamas leader.

Nor did his terrorist affiliation prevent El-Sharkawy from founding and serving on the Arizona Police Muslim Advisory Board.  In fact, El-Sharkawy currently serves as a board member on Hamas’ (CAIR-Arizona) Board of Advisors.

Do police departments in Tempe, Arizona and elsewhere have Christian Advisory Boards?

Citizens where are you?  Why are you putting up with these double standards?

1. Evidence in the US v HLF trial reveals CAIR is Hamas.

2. Two weeks ago the seditious and terrorist-supporting Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) gave its marching orders to the terrorists from Antifa to threaten venues which resulted in those venues canceling programs involving Understanding the Threat (UTT).

3. When UTT conducts it’s 3-day “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Network” program for police, the unanimous response from attendees , including FBI counter-terrorism agents, is shock because they admit they were not aware of the information presented.  Yet, they also state the information UTT presents is “critical” to protecting their communities.

Local police sometimes act in inappropriate and unlawful/unconstitutional ways in these matters because they do not understand this threat nor are they trained on how to respond.

The FBI has not informed them.

No police chief wants to deal with a riot or threats of violence.  The easy route is often to support the shutting down of events instead of dealing with the consequences of the event.  However, police chiefs, sheriffs and the men and women in those departments swear an Oath to protect and defend against “all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

This is where we fight this war – by standing firm, even when it is very difficult.  But this means citizens must encourage and stand with the police when these tough decisions come down the line.

Citizens – don’t stand around and watch!

Question your local officials why they allow local facilities and state houses to be used to advance the jihad by designated terrorists (Hamas/CAIR) and known subversive groups, and tolerate a double standard when it comes to the muslim community, even among police.

Citizens get involved – Tell your local police leaders you want those sworn to protect you to be trained about this threat and support them when they have to deal with the heat from sedition/Marxist organizations and their jihadi task-masters like Hamas doing business as CAIR.

Marxists & Jihadis Assault Truth in Des Moines & America’s Heartland

When hotels in Green Bay and Milwaukee cancelled Worldview Weekend events – which included Understanding the Threat’s President John Guandolo – the entire war for liberty and the soul of our Republic was on full display in America’s heartland.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a corrupt Marxist organization working daily with Hamas in the United States doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), sent the message out.

That message was dutifully received by the SPLC’s terrorists at Antifa who then launched a campaign to intimidate and threaten venues hosting Worldview Weekend’s events.

     

Worldview Weekend (WVW) sponsored a 5 city/5 day speaking tour on national security matters in Des Moines (IA), La Crosse (WI), Green Bay (WI), Bloomington (MN), and Milwaukee (WI).

According to Worldview Weekend’s founder Brannon Howse, there were over 1000 people registered in Milwaukee and over 1500 registered in Minnesota.

Worldview Weekend hosts UTT’s TV and radio programs at WVWTV.com and WorldviewRadio.com, respectively.

Understanding the Threat published a video on our YouTube channel detailing key events of the tour’s cancellation.  That video can be seen HERE.

Worldview Weekend’s Brannon Howse published a video interview with Chris Gaubatz about the events and the tour cancellation which can be seen HERE.

Several Marxists and a few sharia-adherent muslims attended the event in Des Moines, including Iowa State Representative Ako Abdul-Samad, a sharia-adherent muslim (jihadi) and the Chairman of the jihadi organization American Muslim Alliance, and Abshir Omar, a candidate for Des Moines City Council who previously served as the Director for Hamas in Iowa doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Iowa State Legislator Ako Abdul-Samad with Hamas representatives (dba CAIR)

WHO TV, Des Moines Channel 13 news was present at the event and interviewed Brannon Howse, UTT’s John Guandolo, and Representative Abdul-Samad.  Oddly, the news station posted the raw interview of Abdul-Samad on their website but not the raw interviews of Brannon Howse or John Guandolo.

Abdul-Samad was previously praised by Hamas (CAIR).

The WHO TV piece on the event as well as the raw interview of Abdul-Samad can be seen HERE.

 

 

After John Guandolo spoke, Abshir Omar approached him and the two men had a lengthy discussion which Omar describes as “cordial.”  In the discussion, Mr. Guandolo was able to get Abshir Omar to admit that all of Islam requires apostates (those who leave Islam) and homosexuals to be killed.

Omar is a Somali muslim refugee and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America who was supported by CAIR in his unsuccessful 2016 bid for Des Moines City Council.

      

Today, UTT published a new video with John Guandolo rebutting untrue/defamatory comments by Iowa Representative Abdul-Samad, and discussing the command in Islam for muslims to lie to non-muslims and speak pleasantly and in a “refined manner” to them while doing it.

See that video HERE.

CAIR California Crams Islam Down the Throats of Children in San Diego

he Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund reports:  “The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) yesterday (March 14, 2018) issued investigative subpoenas to the California chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its local office in San Diego. The subpoenas are part of FCDF’s federal civil rights lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the San Diego Unified School District’s (SDUSD) ‘anti-Islamophobia initiative.’ The multi-year program was developed under the direction of CAIR as a “holistic” plan to supposedly protect Muslim students and their families from bullying and discrimination. As part of the initiative, staff and students must be taught by CAIR officials “how to become allies to Muslim students,” and CAIR is empowered to revise school curriculum to portray Islam more favorably.”

Primarily, the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund is seeking to obtain the communications between CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD).  SDUSD agreed to cut off communications with CAIR as a part of the ongoing legal process, but was caught continuing to engage them in violation of the agreement.

CAIR was created in 1994 by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas in the United States.  See UTT’s document detailing some of the evidence here.

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund is also investigating the involvement of the Islamic Center of San Diego in these matters.

The Islamic Center of San Diego is a Muslim Brotherhood mosque owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT).

The Islamic Center of San Diego was also involved in supporting Nawaf al Hazmi and Khalid al Mihdhar, two of the 9/11 hijackers.  Specifically, the 9/11 Commission Report investigation revealed the two hijackers lived close to the Islamic Center of San Diego, and purchased a vehicle from a member of the mosque who let them use his address to register the vehicle.

More disturbing, the administrator of the Islamic Center of San Diego allowed Hazmi and Mihdhar to use the mosques bank account to receive $5,000 from Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s nephew. (9/11 Commission Report, page 220)

The Transformation of the FBI & What Citizens Can Do

What happened to the FBI and what can citizens do when those charged with protecting them demonstrate ignorance of clear and present dangers to their communities?

Because state and local police agencies often follow the lead of the FBI on terrorism matters, it is important to understand the depth of the failure at the FBI and what citizens can and must do if America is to win the war against the jihadis and their Marxist allies.

How is the FBI so ignorant about the threat of Islam?

1. Immediately following 9/11, FBI Director Mueller began meeting with leaders of Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations at FBI Headquarters to include the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the American Muslim Council (AMC), which was founded by an Al Qaeda financier, and many other hostile groups to “better understand” the “muslim community.”

2. Today on the FBI’s website we see their main “outreach partners” in the muslim community are: the Muslim Brotherhood’s All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) in Sterling, Virginia; the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); and Muslim Advocates, which works closely with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and is ideologically aligned with them.

3. The FBI has no training on the actual threat of Islam, and no training on sharia – the doctrine 100% of the jihadis state is the blueprint for why and how they fight. In UTT’s experience, all of the federal agents who attend our training programs, including FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) personnel, have never heard the material we present, yet all of them agree it is critical to protecting their local communities.

Why is the FBI leadership so incompetent?

1. In approximately 2007, the FBI brought in a major consulting firm to evaluate its promotion system. The gentleman overseeing the assessment told the FBI that if he were to create the worst possible promotion system – it is the one the FBI was using at the time.

2. Think about this – FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had to wait to retire because he had too few years in the FBI. Yet, he was the Deputy Director. Many agents with 3 years, or even less, time actually investigating cases, become Supervisors at FBI Headquarters. Once they get on the management track, they stay there. Many FBI managers have little investigative experience, which has a catastrophic impact on major cases as these people rise up the ranks.

3. During FBI Director Mueller’s tenure, there was a significant period of time when former police and military personnel were intentionally not hired. This had a devastating impact on the FBI’s culture. Mr. Mueller also made the decision to hire people with “skills” – language, technical, etc – instead of hiring bold leaders and thinkers and training them in languages or in technical skills. This has also gravely affected the FBI’s culture and its ability to perform its primary mission. An example: hiring a Pakistani native who speaks Urdu, or a native Mandarin Chinese speaker as Special Agents may get you the skill you need, but often do not get you the kind of Special Agent you want on the street. It also creates significant counterintelligence issues.

This is not an exhaustive list but meant to give the reader a taste of the institutional issues facing anyone who seeks to right the ship that is the FBI.

What can American citizens to do when their local and state police get take their lead from the FBI on terrorism matters?

1. Learn and understand the threat. UTT has many resources at www.UnderstandingtheThreat.com. Use the free resources on our Research & Resources page, and purchase our DVDs and books on our online store.

2. Share the work UTT does with others. Share our YouTube Channel, Facebook, Twitter (@UTT_USA), and sign up for our Newsletter.

3. Bring UTT’s training to your area. Work to bring a 4-8 hour presentation to a local civic organization or church, and our 3-day law enforcement program to your community. Contact us at info@understandingthethreat.com.

4. Get people in your community who understand the threat to UTT’s Train the Trainer program. This one week program is the only one of its kind in the West, and trains people to present about the Islamic Movement and how to defend it. See more about our training HERE.

5. Prepare your community and its leaders by educating them that CAIR is a Hamas organization before you begin educating them and bringing training to your area. See CAIR is Hamas on UTT’s website.

6. Go into your local elementary, junior high and high schools and see what is being taught about Islam to public school students. Compare that with what is being taught to muslim students at Islamic schools in your area in books like What Islam is All About, the most widely used text book in U.S. Islamic schools. Bring pressure on the schools and the school board to correct the major conflicts in the two and teach truth about Islam to our children.

7. Ensure that if your Pastor is “outreaching” to the Islamic community, he is also teaching his flock what Islam is and what it is not.

8. People in your community who work with state legislators should work to ensure the American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) and Andy’s Law become law in your state, and get police and local leaders trained so they can use these laws, especially Andy’s Law, to bring criminal and civil hammers on jihadi organizations in your area, like the Muslim Students Association, Islamic Societies, and Islamic centers.

This is a beginning. Look for UTT’s upcoming book, What Can I Do, which will give citizens many ways to engage in this battle. We need all hands on deck to take the fight to the enemy and put freedom back on the offensive where it belongs.

Team UTT Takes San Diego By Storm & Propels Counter-Jihad Efforts

The Understanding the Threat team hit the ground running in San Diego last Wednesday (February 21st) launching salvos against the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and Hamas – an inherent part of the MB – and opening the eyes of many leaders, police, prosecutors and citizens about the threat of the Islamic Movement to the San Diego community.

As detailed in last Tuesday’s article here, UTT’s President was met with protests from the terrorist group Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and their stooges in the media- Fox News 5, the local ABC affiliate, as well as the San Diego Tribune – when he spoke to the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association Wednesday.

In addition to Hamas leader Hanif Mohebi, Director of Hamas/CAIR San Diego, trying to get into the meeting room, the Imam of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Center of San Diego, Imam Sheikh Taha Hassane, made a fool of himself by screaming and trying to defend himself and his jihadi mosque after the entire audience saw the evidence the Muslim Brotherhood (North American Islamic Trust – NAIT) owns the mosque’s property.

Thursday, the UTT team met with local leaders to discuss issues in the community related to the jihadi threat, and Thursday night the team presented at the Jewish Community Center.  The UTT team was energized by a group of sharp and courageous leaders from the Jewish community unafraid to speak truth about the Islamic threat.

Friday, the UTT team met with more leaders in the San Diego community before an appearance on Tipping Point with Liz Wheeler on One America News Network (OANN).

Friday night the team spoke to hundreds of people at Skyline Church.  It was a powerful event with the team not only sharing about the local threat from jihadis and jihadi organizations, but with Stephanie Ameiss sharing her story of her 60 foot fall from a bridge as a police cadet, her amazing journey in recovery, her dedicated effort to finally become a police officer, and her call to speak truth about the Islamic threat.

Saturday, UTT’s team gave a 4 hour presentation to and trained a group of Patriot’s at the Ramona Tea Party.

Throughout all of this, the team brought their powerful and unique perspective on this war to individuals and audiences which is truly – as one prosecutor puts it – an “unimpeachable” detailing of the Islamic threat to local communities.

John Guandolo came to an understanding of the jihadi threat and sharia, and how broken the federal response is by investigating the jihadis, specifically the Muslim Brotherhood, as an FBI agent.

Chris Gaubatz came to understand the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas and their reliance on sharia by working undercover inside Hamas in the U.S. (CAIR).

Stephanie Ameiss was a trained Terrorism Liaison Officer (TLO), and came to understand the threat by attending courses provided by UTT, where she realized neither she nor other TLO’s had the true information about the threat to actually target and go after real jihadis, until she experienced the UTT program.

Billy and Karen Vaughn came to understand the Islamic threat and the ignorance and incompetence of U.S. military leaders with regards to the threat, by experiencing the death of their son Aaron Carson Vaughn (SEAL Team Six) in combat in Afghanistan, and all that transpired after it.

In sharing their stories, the Understanding the Threat team presented the truth about the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement and the larger Islamic Movement, how significantly it has penetrated our system, how uninformed/treasonous our leadership is, and that the path to victory is at the local level.

Understanding the Threat took the fight to the enemy in San Diego, spoke truth to local leaders and citizens, and is providing a framework for the people of San Diego to crush the enemy.

UTT is the only organzation in America doing this.

UTT’s Truth Rolls Over Hamas (CAIR) in San Diego

Tuesday, UTT’s President John Guandolo was in Redmond, Oregon speaking to the Deschutes County Republicans.  Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) along with the Deschutes County Democrats tried to shut the event down.  They failed.  The event was a great success.  The truth was spoken and the audience was given evidence revealing CAIR is Hamas.

Wednesday, John Guandolo spoke at a luncheon hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association (USNAAA) of San Diego and was joined by the other members of the UTT team.  In the days leading up to the event, Hamas/CAIR’s national office and its San Diego office tried to shut the event down.  Hamas/CAIR went so far as to directly contact the President of the U.S. Naval Academy’s Alumni Association, Board Members, General Counsel and others to shut the program down.

Hamas/CAIR’s chief propagandist Ibrahim “Dougie” Hooper even organized a “protest” at the venue which was attended by a few Hamas operatives and their useful idiot friends in the community – about a dozen total.

In their report of the event, the ignorant and unprofessional Fox 5 News Channel in San Diego called Hamas/CAIR a “muslim civil rights organization.”  ABC News 10 was no better, and essentially read the notes provided to them by Hamas/CAIR about the event.

But the event happened, and the large crowd of active duty and retired Navy and Marine Corps officers got an unvarnished dose of reality about the threat from the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Movement. Evidence from the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history [US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Northern District of Texas (Dallas) 2008] was presented which reveals CAIR was created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas.

Another defeat for Hamas/CAIR at the hands of UTT.

The Hamas leader of the CAIR office in San Diego, Hanif Mohebi, actually tried to get into the event.  Mohebi was informed he was not welcome.

However, other Hamas supporters were inside the event.

One was retired U.S. Navy Chief Hospital Corpsman Yusuf Miller, who is a sharia adherent muslim.  Miller openly supported Hamas/CAIR outside the venue, and then defened Hamas/CAIR inside the event by trying to claim there was “no evidence” CAIR is linked to Hamas.  Some in the audience actually laughed when Miller said this because evidence had already been presented.

Imam Taha Hassane of the Islamic Center of San Diego was present inside the venue and also made a scene claiming the information was putting his mosque in a bad light.  The facts reveal the Islamic Center of San Diego is a Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas mosque – it is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT).

Two of the 9/11 hijackers were given support by the Islamic Center of San Diego and its members.

Hassane ended up screaming and was escorted out of the room in disgrace.

In the end, the UTT team was told by many in the audience, including senior retired military officers, they were not aware of the information and want to ensure more leaders in the military and community get the information because – they believe – it is vital to the security of the communities in and around San Diego.

For those keeping score at home….

UTT – 1097

CAIR – 7

Will President Trump Prosecute Terrorist Group CAIR & Those Supporting It?

We at Understanding the Threat (UTT) speak the truth – using facts and evidence – about real threats facing our communities here in the United States.

Here is a fact:  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a Hamas organization.

Here is another fact:  Hamas is a designated terrorist organization.

Here is another fact:  CAIR itself is a designated terrorist organization in the U.A.E.

Here is another fact:  U.S. governent officials (State Department), state officials (Ohio Democrats), local school boards (San Diego), and others work with CAIR.

Here is another fact:  Media outlets across the nation continue to identify CAIR as a “muslim civil rights group.”

Because UTT speaks truth about the global Islamic movement, including Al Qaeda, the Islamic State, and the Muslim Brotherhood, it is no surprise to us suit-wearing jihadi groups (legally “terrorists”) like CAIR attack us on several fronts.

CAIR works with their Marxist accomplices in the media in an attempt to smear UTT as an organization and individually.

The Marxist anti-law enforcement Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) attempts to brand UTT as an “extremist” group, while at the same time promoting and defending this representative of a designated terrorist group Hamas – CAIR.

CAIR relies strongly on cowardice and ignorance among local, state and national leaders – who would rather be silent and “liked” by Marxists and jihadis than do the right thing no matter what the cost.  These “leaders” become willing accomplices when their silence allows the terrorists to advance their agenda.

Hamas is a terrorist organization and, therefore,  a threat to the United States and needs to be destroyed.

There has never been a lack of evidence to indict CAIR as a Hamas organization, there has only been a lack of will.

Will President Trump show a strong will and dismantle CAIR and the jihadi/terrorist network in America?

Whenever UTT travels the country to speak truth boldly about this threat, CAIR contacts the venue hosting us, and requests that the venue be closed off to us.  Think about this – Hamas asks venues to deny our first amendment rights, and some of those managing venues, including law enforcement and Christian colleges, have acquiesced.

When UTT’s John Guandolo, Chris Gaubatz, and Billy Vaughn travel around the country speaking about the Islamic threat, citizens frequently ask, “What can we do?”

UTT has an aggressive strategy to dismantle the jihadi network here in the US, and as part of that strategy we are asking our readers and supporters to continue to help us spread the truth about CAIR to media, law enforcement, legislators, pastors, priests, and rabbis, and to citizens in general.

Today’s blog post is a call to action – you can help UTT and the broader war effort today.

  1. We ask you to share UTT’s short write-up entitled, “CAIR is Hamas” with everyone you know via every outlet you can – facebook, twitter, phone calls, emails, etc.
  2. Every time CAIR comes to your town to have a conference or speak, contact the venue and ask them why they are allowing representatives from a terrorist organization – Hamas – to use their venue.
  3. If you have a CAIR office in your state/town, contact your local FBI office and state police and ask them why they are not prosecuting them and shutting them down.
  4. When a local organization – like the San Diego school board – openly works with Hamas (dba CAIR) citizens should rise up and ensure those supporting these terrorists are removed from their positions.
  5. We also ask you to join us in our 25 forFreedom Campaign to help us put freedom on the offensive where it belongs.  Please commit to a $25 per monthly donation so we can continue to take the fight to the enemy and put freedom back on the offensive where it belongs.  Click here NOW to join the 25 for Freedom Campaign.

CAIR is Hamas

The following is a small portion of the evidence which identifies the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) as a Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas and terrorist organization.

Summary

Among the massive amount of evidence entered into the US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (hereafter “HLF”) trial – the largest Hamas and terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history – is a volume of evidence which definitively identifies
CAIR as an organization established by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee” which is Hamas in America. CAIR has received funds from other Hamas entities and organizations affiliated with Al Qaeda. In fact, a document retrieved from CAIR headquarters reveals internal discussions at CAIR to support Osama bin Laden.

While CAIR bills itself as a “Muslim civil rights” organization, the evidence does not support this and, in fact, demonstrates it is a Hamas entity. Hamas is a terrorist organization.

Specific Facts

1. In 1993, the leaders of the U.S. Palestine Committee, which is Hamas in the United States, met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The meeting was covered by the FBI via physical surveillance, microphones in meeting rooms, wiretaps on phones, and other investigative techniques. An Action Memo from FBI Counterterrorism Assistant Director Dale Watson stated this was a “Meeting among senior leaders of Hamas, the HLFRD, and the IAP.” The FBI’s analysis of the Philadelphia meeting entered as evidence in the US v HLF trial stated: “All attendees of this meeting are Hamas members.” CAIR founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad were present at this meeting.

2. The U.S. government’s indictment of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) stated: “The purpose of this (1993 Philadelphia) meeting was to determine their course of action in support of Hamas’ opposition to the peace plan and to decide how to conceal their activities from the scrutiny of the United States government.”

3. FBI recordings of the conversations by Hamas leaders at the Philadelphia meeting captured Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad discussing the creation of a new public relations organization for Hamas which FBI investigators testified was CAIR, created in 1994 following the Philadelphia meeting.

4. CAIR was incorporated in 1994 by Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Rafeeq Jaber, all of whom were leaders of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), a now-defunct Hamas organization in the U.S.

5. In 1993 and 1994, CAIR founder Omar Ahmad served as the National President for IAP (Hamas) and was the Chairman of the Board for CAIR from 1994-2005.

6. Rafeeq Jaber served as the National President of IAP (Hamas) from 1996-98 and 1999-2005.

7. Musa Abu Marzook, the Deputy Political Chief for Hamas and the Leader of Hamas in the United States (Chairman of the U.S. Palestine Committee), was a member of the IAP Board of Directors.

8. CAIR founder Omar Ahmad was on the Executive Committee for the U.S. Palestine Committee (U.S. Hamas).

9. Because of the overwhelming evidence that CAIR is a Hamas entity, U.S. prosecutors identified CAIR as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas), and as unindicted co-conspirators in the US v HLF case – the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history.

10. The Palestine Committee (Hamas) Meeting in 1994 lists CAIR as the 4th organization operating under it (Hamas). This document was entered into evidence at the US v HLF trial.

11. Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. government and many governments around the world.

12. In the December 2007 government filing in the US v Sabri Benkhala appeal (Eastern District of Virginia), the government stated: “From its founding by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.”

13. In a document retrieved from CAIR’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. by one of its interns – now UTT Vice President Chris Gaubatz – CAIR openly discussed supporting Osama bin Laden. The document was titled “Proposed Muslim Platform for 2004” (dated 3/08/04) and stated, in part, “Attempt to understand Islamic movements in the area, and start supporting Islamic groups including Mr. bin Laden and his associates.”

14. In a 2004 FBI raid at the Annandale, Virginia residence of Ismail Elbarasse, a senior Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood leader, the archives of the U.S. MB were discovered. One of the documents found listed the leaders of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas). On the list were the names of CAIR founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad (alias Omar Yeheya).

15. In the government filing rebuking CAIR’s motion to have its name removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list in the HLF case, U.S. prosecutors stated, “As of the date of this response, the Court has entered into evidence a wide array of testimonial and documentary evidence expressly linking CAIR and its founders to the HLF and its principals; the Islamic Association for Palestine and its principals; the Palestine Committee in the United States, headed by Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzook; and the greater HAMAS-affiliated conspiracy described in the Government’s case-in-chief.”

16. In the government filing rebuking ISNA/NAIT’s motion to have their names removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list in the HLF case, U.S. prosecutors stated, “The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised of three organizations: the OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR was later
added to these organizations…the mandate of these organizations, per the International Muslim Brotherhood, was to support Hamas.”

17. In ruling to leave CAIR on the unindicted co-conspirator list in the HLF case, Federal Judge Jorge Solis listed a portion of the overwhelming evidence against CAIR and wrote: “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with the HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.”

18. In a 3-0 ruling, an Appellate panel agreed to leave CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT on the unindicted co-conspirator list in the HLF case.
19. The Holy Land Foundation was convicted of being a Hamas organization, and its leaders were convicted of being Hamas leaders which funneled over $12 million to Hamas.

20. HLF provided CAIR with $5,000 of seed money when it was founded, and CAIR raised money for HLF.

21. FBI Assistant Director Steve Pomeranz stated: “By masquerading as a mainstream public affairs organization, CAIR has taken the lead in trying to mislead the public about the terrorist underpinnings of militant Islamic movements, in particular, Hamas.”

22. In a February 2010 affidavit from an FBI Special Agent in the immigration proceedings for Hamas leader Nabil Sadoun in Dallas, Texas, the affiant declared the U.S. Palestine Committee was affiliated with Hamas. He further identified four (4) Hamas organizations created by the Hamas in America: Holy Land Foundation, Islamic Association for Palestine, United Association for Studies and Research, and Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

23. In a 2003 Senate Sub-Committee hearing on radical Islam, Senator Charles Schumer (NY) stated, “To make matters worse, the prominent members of the Council’s (CAIR’s) current leadership who you Mr. Chairman invited to the hearings today, they declined to testify, also have intimate connections with Hamas.”

24. In a letter dated February 12, 2010 to U.S. Congresswoman Sue Myrick (NC) from Assistant U.S. Attorney General Ronald Weich, Mr. Weich wrote “Enclosed (is) evidence that was introduced in that trial (US v HLF) which demonstrated the relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders, and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and Hamas.”

25. In June 2009, on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Frank Wolf (VA) gave a lengthy speech in which he laid out a great deal of the evidence against CAIR and its ties to Hamas. The transcript of this speech can be found at: https://web.archive.org/web/20140922235833/
http://wolf.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/wolf-gives-major-floorspeech-on-fbis-cooperation-with-cair#.V_QwB7wrIfE

26. In a letter dated April 28, 2009 from the FBI’s Assistant Director, Office of Congressional Affairs, to U.S. Senator John Kyl (AZ), the FBI leader details why the FBI cut off all formal ties to CAIR and identifies it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial because of its relationship with Hamas.

27. CAIR has received funds from overseas organizations WAMY (World Association of Muslim Youth) and IIRO (International Islamic Relief Organization), a subsidiary of the Muslim World League (MWL). Both WAMY and IIRO are Saudi-funded organizations whose U.S. offices were raided by the government because of their possible ties to Hamas and Al Qaeda.

28. In 1999, CAIR received $250,000 from a Saudi-based bank headed by the former director of the Muslim World League (MWL), identified by Osama bin Laden as a primary source of funds for Al Qaeda. Federal investigators raided MWL’s U.S. offices.

29. In a 2008 interview, the Deputy Supreme Guide of the International Muslim Brotherhood Muhammad Habib was asked about the Brotherhood’s connections to CAIR: Interviewer: “But back to CAIR, some people from the Muslim Brotherhood have denied having a connection with CAIR, Do they really represent you?” Habib: “Ehh, this is a sensitive subject, and it’s kind of problematic, especially after 9/11.” Interviewer: “For them to say that there is a relationship between you two?” Habib: “Yes, you can say that.”

30. CAIR has a long record of defending jihadis and jihadi organizations, and continues to publicly condemn all counterterrorism efforts of the U.S. government and local law enforcement. CAIR has never defended the United States in its war against the jihadis. But why would they? They are Hamas.

It should be noted that the above information represents a small fraction of the evidence demonstrating CAIR is a Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood entity. Hamas is a terrorist organization.

CAIR = Hamas. Hamas = Terrorists. CAIR = Terrorists

UTT Assesses Detroit Suburbs of Hamtramck & Dearborn as Enemy Strongholds

 

Islamic Center of America – the largest mosque in North America – in Dearborn, Michigan

This past week UTT’s Vice President, Chris Gaubatz, deployed to Dearborn, Warren, Hamtramck, and Sterling Heights, Michigan – suburbs of Detroit – to assess the level of jihadi penetration in these areas.

As an organization, UTT is fully aware – as are many of those who follow our work – that Dearborn has been heavily effected by Muslim immigration and refugee resettlement. It is one thing to read the reports, and quite another to actually witness and observe the result of the creeping sharia and the presence of jihadis in these areas.

On behalf of UTT, Mr. Gaubatz assesses the Dearborn and Hamtramck areas should be considered enemy held territory.

UTT makes this assessment based on several elements:

The Islamic Center of America in Dearborn is reported to be the largest mosque in North America, and the oldest shia mosque in North America. It is tied to the terrorist state of Iran and Hizbollah.

The founder of the Islamic Center of America, Imam Mohamad Jawad Chirri, was an Islamic sharia scholar who wrote extensively about sharia, martyrdom, and related topics. The previous leader of the center was Imam Hassan Qazwini, who has/had close relationships with Iranian Grand Ayatollahs and Hizbollah affiliates (redundant).

Qazwini also served on the board of the American Muslim Council (AMC), founded and led by Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi, currently serving a lengthy prison term in the United States.

Dearborn is also home to the Islamic House of Wisdom, also reported to be one of the largest mosques in the United States. It is led by Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi, who also has close relationships with senior Iranian leaders. Below is a photo of Elahi with former Iranian President Khatami.

The Detroit suburbs of Hamtramck and Dearborn are within Wayne County lines. Wayne County property records reveal several properties/transactions are owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), the bank for the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood which directly funds the terrorist group Hamas.

There are large predominantly muslim sections of these towns with a high level of outwardly visible sharia adherence, to include niqabs and hijabs worn by women, as well separate entrances for women at Islamic Centers.

Muslim men were observed wearing sharia adherent dress and beards.

The Hamtramck City Council is now majority muslim, with all three being sharia advocates.

The Muslim community receives a high level of government assistance, giving Muslims using these programs more time to spend at their local sharia adherent mosques.

The interfaith dialogue movement in the Dearborn area is flourishing, with many leaders in the community standing arm in arm with jihadi leaders. When pastors, priests, and rabbis refuse to speak truthfully about the Islamic threat, and support jihadis, this creates an apathetic atmosphere amongst their flock regarding this issue, and it shows.

In 2015, the keynote speaker for the Ford (Motor Company) Interfaith Network annual event was Hamas leader Dawud Walid of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). This was Walid’s third year speaking at this event. CAIR is Hamas.

“One Message, One God”

Notice the “Jesus and Jihad” in the lower left corner of the photo

Leadership in the Dearborn area, from City Council, law enforcement, faith leaders, and community leaders are either supporting the growth of sharia adherence in Dearborn and the surrounding areas, or they are silent – and therefore complicit – on this issue.

UTT expects to publish a more detailed report on Dearborn and the surrounding areas in the near future.

While UTT travels the country, we assess different areas to determine strategies we share with legislators, law enforcement, and state leadership for dismantling the jihadi network. UTT has put Dearborn and Hamtramck in the same category as Minneapolis, MN (see article HERE); enemy held territory.

It will take a major education campaign, and aggressive action by state and county officials within these areas to win them back from the Islamic movement.

Southern Poverty Law Center Operates as a Terrorist Support Arm in the Counter-State

Southern Poverty Law Center Operates as a Terrorist Support Arm in the Counter-State

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a U.S. based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that claims to “battle racial and social injustice” in America, yet SPLC’s words and actions reveal it is a terrorist support organization which actively works to accelerate the Islamic and hard-left Counter-States in their goal of overthrowing the United States government.

As Understanding the Threat (UTT) consistently reports, the war in which we are engaged consists of two major Movements acting as “Counter-States” to the United States of America;  The Global Islamic Movement and the hard-left Marxist/Communist/Socialist Movement.

This is a war primarily fought in the Information Battlespace where Propaganda, Influence Operations and Political Warfare are the key lines of operation.

Political Warfare is defined as the synchronization of non-violent and violent actions in support of the strategy.  The “victim/grievance creation” tactic used by the Islamic and hard-left Movements is Political Warfare at its finest.

Both the Islamic and hard-left Movements take a series of actions within their strategies to create the illusion of unjust wrongs, and then work within communities to redress these “wrongs.”  In all cases, the actions of redressing of “wrongs” advance the ultimate goal of destroying the underpinnings of our nation which will necessarily lead to the overthrow of the United States system of government.

One example in the Islamic Movement is when suit-wearing jihadis’ claims “terrorist attacks” create “backlash” against the Islamic community which necessitates law enforcement, churches, synagogues, political leaders, and others to take actions to “protect” muslims.

The violent jihadis thus work with the non-violent jihadis to create more room for the Islamic Movement to operate and gain ground.

Similarly, the hard-left Marxist/Communist/Socialist Movement create a straw-man by grossly exaggerating the racist problem in America and likening anyone who speaks truth about SPLC-protected groups as “racist” in order to destroy their ability to operate in the public arena.

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s spokesman, Mark Potok, who just retired this year after 20 years with the SPLC, made clear why the SPLC created and keeps current their “Hate Map.”  At a 2008 speech in Vermont, the SPLC’s Potok explained:

“We see this political struggle…We’re not trying to change anybody’s mind.  We’re trying to wreck the groups.  We’re trying to destroy them…You are able to destroy these groups sometimes by the things you publish.  It is not so much that they will bring down the police or the federal agents on their head, it’s that you can sometimes so mortally embarrass these groups that they will be destroyed.”

At a speech in Michigan in 2007, the SPLC’s Spokesman Mark Potok said, “I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups (SPLC “Hate” groups), completely destroy them.”

It was reported this week by the Washington Freebeacon that the Southern Poverty Law Center’s business income tax return from 2015 and other records from 2014 show the SPLC has “financial interests” in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Bermuda, and has moved millions of dollars overseas into unregistered accounts.

These are strange transactions for a U.S.-based non-profit organization, unless it is actually a propaganda and political warfare arm of a hostile Counter-State actor.

The article also noted that SPLC leaders Richard Cohen and Morris Dees are paid nearly $330,000 per year for leading the SPLC, a non-profit organization.

None of this activity is shocking for those who know the Southern Poverty Law Center is an advocate for terrorist organizations like Hamas.  The SPLC regularly defends and advocates for the terrorist group Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Examples of SPLC defending/advocating for Hamas (dba CAIR) can be found herehere and here.

At no point has the Southern Poverty Law Center ever published the evidence regarding CAIR revealing it was created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas) to be a node for Hamas in America.

In the war in which the U.S. is engaged domestically against the Islamic and hard-left Counter-States, the SPLC is engaged supporting both enemy entities in the propaganda and political warfare spheres, which makes them a hostile entity against the United States in this war.

The SPLC cannot feign ignorance.  SPLC’s President Richard Cohen sat next to UTT’s Vice President Chris Gaubatz in 2016 during Mr. Gaubatz’s testimony before Senator Ted Cruz’s Committee when Mr. Gaubatz detailed the threat of Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas (dba CAIR).

Chris Gaubatz posed as a converted muslim and went undercover at Hamas headquarters in Washington, D.C. (Council on American Islamic Relations), removing over 12,000 documents from their offices and obtaining 300 hours of covert audio and video recordings.


SPLC’s Richard Cohen (left) listening to UTT’s Chris Gaubatz discuss the activities of Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

See Chris Gaubatz’s 7 minutes of testimony here.

The SPLC lies, deceives, and obfuscates the truth about the jihadi threat to America because it is participating in its advancement and the advancement of the Islamic and hard-left Counter-States.

The SPLC should be investigated for its irregular financial activities, its support for terrorists, and for participating in actions taken by hostile entities to overthrow the United States government.
