    Overlooking the Problem - Tolerance and Theological Blindness Last autumn, following the arrest of a Navy chaplain suspected of spying for al Qaeda, the Pentagon began a review of the way it recruits Muslim chaplains. At the center of the probe is the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Studies in Leesburg, Virginia, which had trained nine of the twelve Muslim chaplains in the Armed Forces and many prison chaplains. The graduate school is funded by the Saudis and is part of the effort to spread Wahhabi Islam. As anyone who bothers to look will discover, Wahhabism, which fueled the...

    A Troubling Presence at a Funeral By Ben Johnson FrontPageMagazine.com | June 11, 2004 Patriotic Americans will always cherish their memories of Ronald Reagan’s strong and courageous leadership during the Cold War. However, his funeral at the National Cathedral may uncap different emotions. Among those the Reagan family has invited to the ecumenical service is Mohammad Magid, a D.C.-area Muslim imam with disturbing ties to suspected terrorists. Magid, who was born and educated in the Sudan, is the Director of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS). ADAMS has numerous close affiliations with the main targets of “Operation Green Quest,”...

    When federal authorities arrested a Muslim military chaplain nearly one month ago at Guantanamo bay on suspicions of espionage, the danger of our radical Islamist enemies infiltrating the American infrastructure at dangerous levels came into the daylight. Federal agents confirmed the bad news with the arrest of Abdurahman Alamoudi, the founder of the military's Muslim Chaplaincy program and an American-Muslim leader well connected to the White House.  On October 23, Alamoudi was indicted on charges that include financial dealings with al-Qaeda and Hamas, passport fraud, illegal procurement of citizenship, and engaging in prohibited activities with state sponsor of terrorism, Libya—a relationship...

    Friday, October 17, 2003 Saudi Arabia has funded the indoctrination of U.S. soldiers and inmates to an ideology adopted by Al Qaida. Research conducted by the Washington-based Institute of World Politics has asserted that Saudi Arabia poured tens of millions of dollars into spreading Al Qaida-related ideology among American soldiers and inmates. The report said the Saudi aim was to form insurgency cells throughout the United States that support a Wahabi agenda. "Islamists terrorists view conversions of non-Muslims to Islamism as vital to their effort," J. Michael Waller, a professor at the institute, said. "U.S. counterintelligence is vigilant against recruitment...

    <p>The Muslim organizations that certify chaplains for the U.S. military have come under renewed scrutiny since the arrest of Army Chaplain Yousef Yee and two Muslim translators who worked with al Qaeda prisoners in Guantanamo Bay — and that's all to the good. The Graduate School of Islamic Social Sciences (GSISS) and the American Muslim Foundation (AMF) were already being investigated, and it may well be that somehow Mr. Yee picked up his radical Islam from some contact with these groups. But so far another possibility has been overlooked, perhaps because its political incorrectness quotient is positively off the scale: The possibility that Yee was sincere when he denounced the September 11 attacks, and that his mind was changed by the Guantanamo prisoners themselves.</p>

    Pentagon probes its Muslim school choice WASHINGTON, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- A school the Pentagon relied on to train Muslim military chaplains is under investigation for possible ties to al-Qaida, ABC News reported Tuesday. For the last six years, the Pentagon used an unaccredited school in Leesburg, Va., to train and certify most of its 13 Muslim chaplains. But in the last 18 months, the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences also has been part of a federal investigation into possible financial ties to al-Qaida, ABC reported. One of the chaplains mentioned in correspondence between the Pentagon and the...

    Capitol Hill (CNSNews.com) - Following the arrests of a Muslim chaplain and an Arabic translator for suspected spying at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention facility, two senators are calling for a full investigation of terrorists' attempts to recruit members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Muslim-American groups fear the investigation may become a "witch hunt" for followers of Islam. "How, in our most sensitive Army prison [at] Guantanamo, the most sensitive of Army facilities, were there breaches?" asked Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) Thursday. "When you hear that, at Guantanamo, security has been breached, you say to yourself, 'Well, what's happening at...

    With a Muslim army chaplain imprisoned in a Navy brig as an alleged terrorist spy, the military must rethink how it recruits and screens Islamic clergy, according to a key Senate ally of the administration's counterterrorism policies. "I'm gratified that military authorities have taken action to investigate what may be an alarming breach of security in our armed services, and I strongly recommend that the Pentagon review its policies in regard to the recruitment of clerics," says Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), chairman of a subcommittee on terrorism and homeland security. Following news that the chaplain and an Islamic Air Force...

    or the last five years, Qaseem A. Uqdah, a Marine Corps veteran, has been visiting military bases around the world in search of Muslim officers and enlistees who might make suitable chaplains.In his role as a recruiter, Mr. Uqdah is not employed by the military. Instead, he is an independent middleman who runs a group that is authorized by the Pentagon to nominate Muslim chaplain candidates. He said he is paid nothing for his efforts and is motivated by his belief in Islam.One of the clerics Mr. Uqdah recommended to the Pentagon — Capt. James J. Yee, a Chinese-American convert...

Perimeter guards were in place to protect resting U.S. troops awaiting deployment orders that soon would send them rappelling from hovering helicopters to the ground assault that distinguishes the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. With the perimeter secured, the officers of the 1st Brigade were getting some of the sleep they knew would be in short supply once they were dropped into combat. But shortly after 1:00 a.m. local time,...
