My visit to Australia from the US was planned over a year ago for this week. In the immediate wake of the horrific, unspeakable act of terror at two mosques in Christchurch, I must first say to my Muslim brothers and sisters that I stand with you in the unqualified defence of religious freedom for every citizen in our nations. An attack on one faith is an attack on all. Terrorists target the vulnerable free amongst us because our liberty and its cohesive strength is the greatest obstacle to their supremacism and bigotry. We can never let their barbarism drive us apart.
The New Mexico Militant Jihadi Training Compound and Child Abuse is the tip of the National Islamist Iceberg
Make no mistake.
The militant Jihadi training camp and its horrific child abuse discovered in the small, quiet town of Amalia, New Mexico is not an isolated incident but rather is the tip of the proverbial iceberg of Islamist radicalization in America.
It is unconscionable that major media ignore the bigger story here on Imam Siraj Wahhaj, Sr. and his connections to so-called "mainstream" American Islamist organizations.
Twelve to twenty-four months ago, a gentleman by the name of Mohammad Tawhidi emerged into Australian media and quickly became a sensation because he seemed to have straight-talk about Islam, calling it a "violent religion" that has "spread by violence from its beginning" and the Prophet Muhammad a "terrorist Prophet". He slyly would qualify that as "their terrorist Prophet". A number of Islamists were interviewed in the Australian media, and their responses quickly gave Tawhidi a foil with which to advance the perception that he was the imam everyone had been waiting for. As is typical for Islamists, their response, because of their own profound ideological liabilities and dishonesty, was to call him a "fake imam." Tawhidi also reported death threats and provided video of him being called names, and he used these reported attacks, many of which were never verified, to engender sympathy among a significant number of Australians. Similar to what we've seen in the rest of the west, the Australians have been awaiting honest Muslim discourse in lieu of the apologetics, denials, and dishonesty spewed by the Islamists.
Introduction: Thank you Chairman DeSantis and members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security for holding this very important hearing on "The Muslim Brotherhood's Global Threat." I am Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, President and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) based in Phoenix, Arizona. I am here today, because as an American Muslim, I have dedicated my life to countering the oppressive and radicalizing influence of Islamist groups in the West upon our communities. No group embodies the threat of radical Islamism more than the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), and no group runs deeper into the consciousness of global Islamism, especially in our Arab Sunni communities than the Muslim Brotherhood and its global network of affiliates and progeny across the world. Unfortunately, much of the conversation about the Muslim Brotherhood has been obstructed, muffled, marginalized, deferred, or minimized by Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers or their allies.
