One of the greatest security threats we face as a nation today is the threat of Islamic terrorism. Islamic terrorism has become the central security issue facing our government and you can see the debate over what to do about it play out each and every day in our newspapers and television programming. The debate has exploded in recent days on the heels of the Iran Nuclear deal as many (on both sides of the aisle) have been pointing out that giving Iran access to more than $100 Billion is not a good idea. Why? Because Iran is still the world’s greatest sponsor of Islamic terrorism in the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere. Iranian dollars are funding terrorist groups (and their attacks) in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Israel and beyond… and now we’re giving them even more money? It just doesn’t make sense.
However, it’s not just Iran getting our money to promote terrorism – the government is funding terrorists in other ways too.
In a story for the People’s Pundit Daily, Paul Sutliff does a little accounting to show how terrorists are getting federal dollars through other, less notorious but equally evil groups…
Since we were attacked on 9/11 by al Qaeda and have learned how the Muslim Brotherhood assisted in the planning and preparations, you would think that would mean that the U.S. federal government would not be offering them monetary handouts. But that is sadly not true.
In 2004, the United States served a search Warrant on Ismail Elbrasse, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America at the time. Through that search of Elbrasse’s hidden sub-basement the Explanatory Memorandum was discovered. It revealed a sinister war of infiltration and subversion against both Canada and the United States of America. Below is just one paragraph from the missive written as early as 1991.
4- Understanding the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan 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 choose to slack.
Under the Obama, Bush and Clinton administrations, funds from the federal government have gone directly to sources proven to have terrorist connections here in the United States. With this stated it is beyond this writers understanding why these organizations are allowed to exist in the USA much less receive financial assistance from the federal government!
Council On American Islamic Relations (CAIR) 059-90010
Award Amount $70,324
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) $70,324 to provide “Critical infrastructure and key resources protection” this past April 28th. It is important to note that CAIR is the former Islamic Association of Palestine and was listed as an Unindicted Co-conspirator in the largest terror funding trial in American history (USA v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, 2007, 2008). HLF was found guilty of funding Hamas and money laundering. Federal agencies such as the FBI have been forbidden from interacting with CAIR since 2008! But for some reason this year, they are trusted by the federal government to provide critical infrastructure and key resources protection. A true example of the Fox guarding the Hen House!
Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center GS11B02021
Falls Church, VA
Award Amount: $628,589
Federal funding of this mosque was first exposed by Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) in 2010. Emerson rightly brought concern that the incredible laxness or overt funding of Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center that had previously and continually proven to be one of the favorite stomping grounds of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Anwar Awlaki, was a former “spiritual advisor” to two of the 9/11 terrorists according to the 9/11 Commission at the Falls Church Mosque!
IPT cited White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs interview on CBS’ Face the Nation onMay 23, 2010.
Mister Awlaki … supports al Qaeda’s agenda of murder and violence. In fact, in recent videotapes, he’s said he’s a member of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, who has an agenda just like al Qaeda to strike targets in Yemen, throughout the world, including here in the United States….
