Is it White House outreach to muslims? Or an embrace?

By Frank Gaffney

I had the opportunity to appear Monday in a Tennessee court as an expert witness on the threat posed by shariah. The case involves an effort by citizens of Murfreesboro, Tennessee to prevent the construction of a mega-mosque in their town’s outskirts – a facility that seems likely to serve, as do most mosques in America, as bastions of that supremacist, totalitarian political-military-legal program.

Among other things, I warned the court that – since shariah obliges its adherents to engage in jihad (holy war), whether through violent means or more stealthy techniques – in my professional judgment, any approval of a proposed 50,000-square feet Islamic Center of Murfreesboro (ICM) required the most careful and informed scrutiny.

My testimony was drawn from the analysis and key findings of the pathbreaking Team B II report that have been serialized here in recent days. In particular, I noted that officials at every level of government have been, at best, willfully blind (in the words of Team member and former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy) to the dangers associated with the so-called “civilization jihad” being waged against this country by the Muslim Brotherhood. At worst, some appear susceptible to charges of “misprision of treason” – a term the U.S. code uses to criminalize a failure to act in the face of evidence of sedition.

Unbeknownst to me, at approximately the same moment, Team B II member Patrick Poole was breaking the news at Big Peace of a prime example of this frightening failure of the “duty to know” about the stealth jihad, let alone the duty to stop this seditious activity. As Poole reported, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Chicago office had provided a six-week training program to a known operative of a designated terrorist organization, Hamas, complete with tours of classified facilities like the National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC) and the FBI’s training facility at Quantico, Virginia.

The individual in question is Sheikh Kifah Mustapha, who also happens to be an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history: U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation. According to Poole’s sources, Mustapha was especially inquisitive about the FBI counterterrorism techniques and procedures. One can only speculate about how much valuable information must have been collected by this terrorist operative in the course of his FBI-enabled “training” sessions.

In an effort to understand the FBI’s thinking, my colleague, Christine Brim, had a fascinating, on-the-record conversation for Secure Freedom Radio with a spokesman for the Bureau’s Chicago office, Ross Rice. [Check back here at Big Peace soon]. Suffice it to say that Rice’s statements are further evidence of the obliviousness to the shariah-mandated, stealth threat now rife within U.S. government circles.

Speaking of Chicago, that city is the venue for three-days of meetings convened by what some have called “the new Caliphate” – a 56 Muslim nation entity that makes up the international institutional arm of the “civilization jihad” aimed at destroying Western civilization from within. Incredibly, at least three senior White House and State Department officials are among the scheduled participants: Rashad Hussain, the President’s special envoy to the OIC; Farah Pandith, the State Depatment’s outreach coordinator to the Muslim community; and Dalia Mogahed, an adviser to the White House Office of Inter-faith and Neighborhood Initiatives.
