Why enraged? Because the truth will be told.
“The Iowa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has issued a statement calling Guandalo [sic] an ‘anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.’ The organization aims to be ‘a leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding,’ according to its website.”
Mike Brownlee of The Daily Nonpareil doesn’t bother to tell you that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) A California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI, and a Florida chapter distributed pamphlets with the same message. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. A CAIR operative recently called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.
“Additionally, the Southern Poverty Law Center has issued a statement saying Guandalo [sic] has a history of making anti-Muslim statements. The nonprofit center ‘is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry,’ according to its website.”
Once again, Brownlee doesn’t tell you that the SPLC is a hard-Left money machine that smears those who dissent from its hard-Left agenda by lumping them in with the likes of the KKK and neo-Nazis.
But of course Mike Brownlee can’t even spell John Guandolo’s name right.
Meanwhile, in the SPLC’s hit piece on these presentations, there is this interesting item:
The Omaha-based Global Faith Institute certainly shares Guandolo’s bigoted views about Islam and Muslims. Run by Mark Christian, a former Sunni Imam who converted to Christianity, the GFI website includes anti-Muslim commentary like, “Islam doesn’t exist to reach comfortable accommodations with other faiths. Islam doesn’t exist to stand side by side with non-Muslims. Islam exists to subjugate the earth, and all in it, to Allah. Either Islam reigns supreme, or Islam fights. To do as Pope Francis, is merely illustrating weakness and foolishness to the Muslim mind. There is no admiration of Western culture among Muslims; they dismiss our successes as the benefits accruing to those who serve Satan. There is no desire to assimilate with Western societies, because that would mean assimilating into a coven of worship with which their Prophet has commanded them to subdue and destroy. No amount of foot washing or ecumenical interfaithery will ever change that. It only facilitates it by opening doors better left shut and leaving foxes in charge of the hen house.”
Mark Christian is, as the SPLC notes, “a former Sunni Imam” from Egypt. You’d think someone at the SPLC would pause to wonder how a former imam could be “Islamophobic” and get the Religion of Peace all wrong. You’d think wrong. Like all Leftists, the SPLC presents its views as axiomatically true. Evidence? Rational argument? That’s for “right-wing extremists.”
If you’re anywhere near these events, don’t miss them.
“An Islamic terrorism talk earns criticism, promotion,” by Mike Brownlee, The Daily Nonpareil, September 13, 2017:
A presentation on Islamic terrorism that’s been promoted by the Pottawattamie County Republican Party chairman is drawing criticism, including from the Iowa chapter of an Islamic civil rights organization.
The event, titled “Understanding the Threat — the Muslim Brotherhood’s Secret Strategies for the USA,” will feature a presentation by former FBI agent and current law enforcement trainer John Guandalo [sic] and Chris Gaubatz, author of “The Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.”
The event — which is scheduled to run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Oakland Community Center, 614 Dr. Van Zee Road in Oakland — is being hosted by the Omaha-based Global Faith Institute and 88 Tactical Elite Training Organization. The partners are also hosting an event with the speakers in Omaha tonight.
The Iowa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has issued a statement calling Guandalo [sic] an “anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.” The organization aims to be “a leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding,” according to its website.
Additionally, the Southern Poverty Law Center has issued a statement saying Guandalo [sic] has a history of making anti-Muslim statements. The nonprofit center “is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry,” according to its website.
Jeff Jorgensen, chairman of the Pottawattamie County Republican Party, isn’t convinced.
“There are a lot of allegations about this guy. The question is, ‘Are these allegations fact?’ There’s always two sides to a story,” he said. “We want to hear his side of the story and make up our own mind. We need to become better informed; we’re promoting people attend.”
In past interviews on “The Jim Bakker Show” and “The Alex Nitzberg Show” about his area of expertise, Guandalo [sic] has said that the majority of roughly 3,000 Islamic centers in the U.S. are controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Guandalo [sic] said that the Islamic terrorist movement in the U.S. works directly with Black Lives Matter and other groups. He also mentioned the amount of Muslims that work in convenience stores, hotels and as taxi drivers as a sign of the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration in the U.S.
“The way you know an Islamic leader is lying is when he’s talking to you, when his mouth is moving,” he told Nitzberg in a podcast episode.
Guandalo [sic] has also alleged that CAIR is connected to terrorist organization Hamas. CAIR has also been a lightning rod for Republican lawmakers in years past.
Jorgensen said the Pottawattamie County GOP is not a sponsor of the event. He said the event will discuss attempts by the Muslim Brotherhood and other outside actors to influence American politics.
“We want to know more,” Jorgensen said. “We’ve been hearing, whether it’s rumor or not, there are Muslim international front businesses.”…
Jorgensen, Naomi Leinen and Jan Tatum, all members of the Pottawattamie County GOP Executive Committee, confirmed to The Nonpareil that both the five-member executive committee and 70-member Central Committee had voted against having the party host, sponsor and pay for an event with Guandalo [sic] and Gaubatz. Jorgensen was the lone vote on the Executive Committee in favor of the party hosting the event.
“The County Central Committee and Executive Committee voted this down when Jeff brought it up,” Leinen said. “Our mission statement is to get Republicans elected and support the Republican party platform for Iowa. We thought the event wasn’t doing anything to get Republicans elected.”…
So much the worse for Republicans.
