The Muslim Brotherhood in America-Part 3 of a Series
By Mike Scruggs- On February 10, 2011, President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, testified before the House Committee on Intelligence, saying:
“The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ is an umbrella term for a variety of movements. In the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried al-Qaeda as a perversion of Islam. They have pursued social ends, betterment of the political order in Egypt.”
Those who watched his televised testimony and know the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and its sponsorship of the Hamas terrorists in Palestine and their connections to al-Qaeda thought the U.S. intelligence services had suffered from some contagious neural dysfunction. The next day, longtime U.S. ally, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, was forced out of office for lack of American support. This was despite Israel’s warning that Mubarak’s ouster would lead to Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt. Just as most knowledgeable observers outside of the left-liberal Obama dreamland thought, Israel was right. Twelve months of Muslim Brotherhood radicalism and tyranny, including severe persecution of Coptic Christians, led to massive public demonstrations. Fortunately, the Egyptian Army was able to restore order and oust Muslim Brother Mohamed Morsi.
This afternoon, Sunday, March 22, 2015, I watched the Fox News interview of CIA Director John Brennan by Chris Wallace. Brennan constantly parroted the Obama party line that ISIS is not the true Islam, although they operate very close to the philosophy and deeds of the Prophet as written in their most sacred doctrinal standards, the Koran and supporting “Hadiths.” The Hadiths are the explanatory traditions and teachings of Muhammad. The Koran and teachings of Muhammad often exhort the killing of unbelievers, including beheading and burning. ISIS does seem a bit more psychopathic, but Hamas also kills civilians, sometimes even targeting children for terroristic affect by rockets and suicide bombs that kill, burn, and maim.
According to former Marine officer and anti-terrorist FBI agent, John Guandolo, U.S. CIA Director Brennan actually converted to Islam, while serving in Saudi Arabia, in the 1990s. This is dismissed by liberal media, but Guandolo will not back down on the assertion. Whether or not Brennan is a certified Muslim (all it takes is a verbal confession), Brennan speaks the party line of President Obama that the true Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance. I do not know what zombie drug Clapper and Brennan are on to constantly repeat such counterfactual dogma about the Muslim Brotherhood and Islam. They are remarkably consistent, not only with the beliefs of the President, but also Muslim Brotherhood propaganda strategy. This propaganda is frequently repeated by left-liberal academics and clueless liberal clergy and media personalities. It is prevalent among Democrat politicians and uncomfortably common among establishment Republicans.
An extremely common public error in the U.S. and Britain is to confuse what individual Muslims believe or practice with what the Koran and the Hadiths say. Islam cannot be defined by what academics or individual Muslims say or would like to believe about it, but only by what the Koran and the Hadiths say about it. We must face the unfortunate fact that ISIS, Hamas, and al-Qaeda are quoting and interpreting the Koran and Muhammad in agreement with the original companions and associates of Muhammad. Similarly, Christianity is not defined by what people, even Christians, say about it. Christianity is defined by what the Bible, says about it. The Koran and Muhammad are the standards of true Islam, and the Bible and Christ is the standard of true Christianity.
Here is an important distinction: There are many moderate Muslims, but there is NO moderate Islam true to the Koran.
Clapper and Brennan are defending a fanciful Islam that does not exist. Again, Islam must follow the Koran, or it is not Islam. Christianity must follow the authority of the Bible, or it is not Christianity. One thing that strikes those knowledgeable about Islam’s history and worldview is how little the chief intelligence officers appointed by Obama know about Islam. They simply parrot his party line and bury any intelligence that contradicts it. This is an extremely dangerous situation for U.S. national security and public safely.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s chief propaganda front in the U.S. is the Council for American and Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR spokesmen frequently appear on national television and radio networks, including Fox, proclaiming the drum beat that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance or that Islam is a noble religion hijacked by terrorists. CAIR naturally attacked former FBI agent Guandolo’s assertion that Brennan is a Muslim convert.
Guandolo, however, has impeccable credibility, while CAIR was named by the Dallas U.S. District Attorney as an unindicted conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Trial. There was overwhelming evidence that HLF funds were being funneled to Hamas terrorists engaged in violent Jihad against Israel and that CAIR, as a major Muslim Brotherhood front, was involved. Again, deception is a major Muslim Brotherhood tool for “civilization Jihad.” CAIR is extremely well funded by oil money. They can repeat a lie often enough to make it widely believed, especially with a truth-negligent American media, the prevalence of hysterical multiculturalist political correctness, and loads of “dark money” flowing into Democrat and Republican establishment political campaigns.
In addition to Clapper and Brennan, we must remember that the most powerful advisory influence on President Obama is Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian born Muslim with a decidedly radical left-liberal worldview
Most MB subversion and propaganda techniques are strikingly similar to Cold War Communist and New Left methodology. It would be easy to conclude that Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals must be almost as popular as the teachings of Muhammad with MB ideologues. The techniques of leftist “community organization” are also prominent: unremitting claims of victimization, continual escalation of demands, a constant stream of lawsuits (lawfare), and relentless smearing of critics with almost automatic charges racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and Islamophobia.
The American public’s greatest vulnerability to Muslim Brotherhood deception is its declining understanding of Biblical truth, resulting in terribly diminished rational and spiritual discernment of lies and counterfeits. We are left defenseless against ravening wolves.
