    While Egyptians inside Egypt were split in their vote in their recent election, Egyptians living in the West were overwhelmingly in support of the Islamist candidate. Indeed, many Egyptian Americans who have dual citizenship and are living in America voted at Egyptian consulates throughout the United States. They did so both in the primary Egyptian elections, which occurred a few weeks ago, and now in the recent final elections for president of Egypt between the Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Mursi and the former Prime Minister, Ahmed Shafiq. Both Alarabiya TV and Egyptian national TV reported that Egyptian immigrants voted 75%...

    Congressman Peter King (R-NY) told Politico Tuesday that in his upcoming hearings on radicalization among American Muslims, he was "not planning to call as witnesses such Muslim community critics as the Investigative Project on Terrorism's Steve Emerson and Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer,who have large followings among conservatives but are viewed as antagonists by many Muslims." Based on this, it appears that this will be a show trial. Between Emerson and Spencer, the whole of it is covered. Emerson knows who all the players are and what groups and cells they are affiliated with. He knows who everyone is and what...

    If 2010 was the year America finally woke up to political Islam's ne farious reach on US soil, with luck 2011 will be the year we launch an offensive against it. One way to begin that process is through hearings that Rep. Peter King (R-NY), the new chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, plans to hold on American Muslim radicalization. Attention to this issue offers an opportunity for American Muslims to confront the radicalization problem and provide solutions -- as only they can. My group, the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, believes these hearings will shed light on the...

    Dear Mr. King: The Arab / Muslim American lobbies, organizations are the problem (CAIR, ADC, MSA, etc.)As courageous Peter King pushes Congress to take up issue with 'Radical Muslims in America,' let's all remember that the moral, direct or often indirect psychological motivation that leads Muslims to be radicalized is by the terror-excusers via mixed messages the Arab Muslim lobbies and organizations broadcast on a constant basis within a total "we Muslims, everywhere are all innocent victims" mentality, their hidden message is clear, the Muslim terrorists that aim at innocent people and use its own population to cause havoc are...

    american thinker ^ | 8/14/10 | Eileen F. Toplansky
    American Muslims are debating key questions of loyalty to America, a debate in which the stakes could not be higher. Alarmingly, "no fewer than four United States citizens and a permanent U.S. resident have risen to senior leadership posts within al-Qaeda," according to an Investors Business Daily editorial by Paul Sperry. Thus, "five English-speaking leaders are actively planning or facilitating attacks against their countrymen, while recruiting and radicalizing other American turncoats to carry them out." The implications of this are frightening. No longer is America at war with a foreign enemy. The enemy is here -- an enemy who understands...

    Radical Islam is on the march inside the United States.

    The Islamic Circle of North America, or ICNA, along with the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, and representatives of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, are mainstays of the American Islamic conference circuit, which has featured radical clerics and ideology derived from its overseas forebears. The conference circuit, which is used to recruit and educate Muslims and raise funds, works to portray itself as moderate. It also provides a meeting place where new friends can be found. At the Silver Spurs Arena in Orlando, elegantly dressed women shared meals and mingled with newfound friends from a...

    Documents: FBI monitored growth of Tampa terrorist cell for decade By VICKIE CHACHEREAssociated Press Writer TAMPA, Fla. -- FBI agents monitored a group of Palestinian men in Florida for more than a decade and drew the connections between Middle East terrorists and the group of seemingly quiet academics through a web of money transfers, faxes and scanned mail, according to court documents released Thursday. In an affidavit more than 100-pages long, FBI Agent Kerry Myers detailed the long investigation of former University of South Professor Sami Al-Arian and three others who are named in a 50-count federal racketeering indictment.

    American Muslim Football: An Intifada On The GridironFootball - it's as all-American as apple pie, large SUVs, and invading third world countries. And in addition to keeping couch potatoes firmly planted in front of their large-screen TVs, it's also a great way to keep young people off the streets and out of trouble. So who could complain when a flag-football league of American Muslims organizes a New Year's football tournament to showcase the best of local Muslim athletic talent? Well, when you have team names that include "Intifada" and "Mujahideen" and feature logos of sword-wielding warriors, some people can get...

    Two American Muslims who tried to join the Taliban were sentenced to 18 years in prison Monday during a hearing in which they denounced the Bush administration and pleaded in song for freedom. Patrice Lumumba Ford, 32, and Jeffrey Leon Battle, 33, had pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy to levy war against the United States. Both said that in trying to reach Afghanistan, they were fulfilling their Islamic duty to defend fellow Muslims. "The attack on Afghanistan killed and maimed thousands of people without achieving its objective," said Ford, who had traveled to China in an unsuccessful attempt to...

Bennetta, to Stuart Elliott, of Wichita, Kansas 8 October 2003 Dear Mr. Elliott: I have been reviewing schoolbooks and other instructional publications for about eighteen years, and during that time I have developed three general observations. Writing an analysis of a good publication is enjoyable and usually is easy. Writing an analysis of a weak publication is typically a more difficult task, requiring much explication of the publication's failures and follies. Writing an analysis of a patently fraudulent publication is...

    Arrest for suspicion of espionage a shock to those who knew chaplain at Fort LewisBy Ray Rivera and Cheryl PhillipsSeattle Times staff reporters Shortly before the United States attacked Taliban forces in Afghanistan, a number of Muslim soldiers stationed at Fort Lewis took a troubling question to their chaplain, Capt. James Yee: Is it OK to kill fellow Muslims? Yee, one of the few Muslim chaplains in the military, said he replied: "It comes down to justice. Whether Muslim or non-Muslim, criminals need to be brought to justice." Today, Yee finds himself behind bars at a military brig in South...
  • Bad CAIR day: Ex-staffer pleads guilty to terror charges, Senate asks questions on 9/11 anniversary

    The second anniversary of the 9/11 attacks was a bad day for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has been struggling to overcome its reputation as a front group for Islamist terrorists. Senators at a September 10 terrorism and homeland security hearing ripped into CAIR for its ties to the Hamas suicide bombers. As if that wasn’t bad enough, on the same day CAIR’s former community affairs director pled guilty to committing bank and visa fraud while running an Islamic charity that the US calls a front for associates of Osama bin Laden. CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad canceled...

    *10* As I write this from Baghdad International Airport my thoughts drift to an upcoming 4th of July, a time when American Muslims feel that sense of duality a little more strongly than usual (Mansoor Ijaz, Supporting Our Armed Forces: An American Muslim's Perspective): An appreciation for the freedoms we enjoy coupled with a longing for the lands of our heritage; proud of our advancements on these shores and bemoaning the inability of our homelands to re-visit the more glorious days of our past. It's easy in our skepticism to look at cursory reports from the media and dismiss the...

    One Muslim American's tough challenge to his community. NEW YORK – In the days leading up to the start of "Operation Iraqi Freedom," a Muslim American civil rights lobbying group, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) sent out a nine-page "Muslim Community Safety Kit" enunciating a series of largely ineffective steps for Arabs and Muslims living in the US to take if war backlash were to materialize against them. It wasn't the first time such knee-jerk civil rights lobbying had been done by a group purporting to represent America's Arabs and Muslims. But it should be the last. The...
