    The indictment of eight people on racketeering charges for allegedly financing and supporting homicide bombers in Israel is an important first step on a very long road. The indictment charges that Palestinian Islamic Jihad - which the United States has officially designated as a terrorist organization - has been deeply entrenched in the United States for more than two decades and that it has used American academic and fund-raising groups as fronts for operations that have been responsible for the deaths of more than 100 people, including Americans, in the Middle East, mostly in Israel. Thirty-six of the total have...

    The Bush Administration has been diligent in conveying its friendliness toward Muslims and for this the president is to be commended. It would be both morally and strategically wrong to suggest that the war on terror is a war against all Muslims. But in seeking out American Muslims to praise and embrace, the president has been led into a hornet's nest because the most conspicuous Muslim American organizations - though not necessarily the most representative -- have intimate ties to Saudi money and are often only one step away from terrorists and their supporters. Questionable groups have obtained access to...

    It is interesting to note that CAIR director Nihad Awad will soon be sharing center stage in a major conference with Mohammad Akram al-Adlouni, the probable author of the most damning documents made public during the Holy Land Foundation trial. The conference in Denmark, heavily populated with Muslim Brotherhood figures, is, according the program, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Nakbah or catastrophe, as they refer to the founding of the state of Israel. the old gang is getting together again, in the service of the Muslim Brotherhood and its armed wing, Hamas. It was al-Adlouni who penned the...
  • MPAC Trains 2,200 Transportation Security Officers

    Last week, MPAC completed a quarterly training for Transportation Security Officers (TSO) with about 2,200 officers receiving training on cultural awareness about Islam and Muslims. This was an important achievement for MPAC and the Muslim American community in light of the recent airport security changes and because TSOs are responsible for screening passengers and luggage. MPAC President Salam Al-Marayati, MPAC Civic Outreach Coordinator, Saadia Khan and MPAC volunteers, Nisreen Malhis and Sireen Sawaf, conducted the trainings at Los Angeles International Airport for the past two months. They discussed the diversity of Muslims around the world from cultural dress to language...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - The FBI has launched an inquiry into the dealings of an Orange County grocery store owner who is allegedly the U.S. leader of a little-known radical Islamic group that has been banned in parts of Europe and the Middle East, authorities said. Iyad Hilal, an Islamic author and philosopher, has lived in Orange County for more than a decade and hasn't drawn much attention to his writings or his role in the group, Hizb ut-Tahrir, which means Party of Liberation. The group has come under attack since the July 7 bombings in London where British Prime...

    LOS ANGELES Immediately following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Jews and Muslims met and prayed together. Five years later, members of the two faiths are volunteering and teaching together. In coming months, hundreds of Jews and Muslims will take their respective faiths to Los Angeles area streets, working in teams to conduct college teach-ins and help the homeless, immigrants and the working poor. The project is a testament to the evolution of the interfaith movement here a fragile work-in-progress that took root after the terrorist attacks and has grown despite the pressures of war in Lebanon, violence in Iraq and...

    Focus should be on extremists' war against the West. By Omran Salman On Aug. 10, British police arrested 24 Muslim suspects in a plot to blow up 10 U.S.-bound jetliners over the Atlantic. If successful, the attack would have killed thousands of people. The terrorists were motivated by religious extremism. Rather than just condemn the plot and address the scourge of Islamic extremism, Muslim groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and the Muslim American Society (MAS) sought to both legitimize terror and portray Muslims as victims. Do these organizations really...

    Teresa Watanabe is a reporter for the Los Angeles Times. Like others in daily journalism, myself included, in the late 1990s she began writing actively about Islam in America.  A check in the Timesarchives shows that although almost no clips are available before 1998 in which the words “Watanabe” and “Muslim” appear together, from then on she accumulated 100 bylined stories dealing, at various levels of attention, with the faith of Muhammad. However, Watanabe has consistently shown herself to be an enabler of Islamist ideologues in their attempts to present themselves either as innocent throughout their careers in Southern California,...

    (CNSNews.com) - "The keyboard equals Kalashnikov" is a popular new slogan among radical Islamic groups today, according to a recent report highlighting extremists' use of the Internet in spreading their message. The expression, a reworking of "the pen is mightier than the sword," refers to the computer keyboard and the Russian assault rifle more commonly known as the AK47, popular among radical and terrorist groups for many decades. Experts are voicing concerns that extremist messages on the web may contribute to radicalization, even among residents of the United States. Islamist groups have created a sophisticated online media network, complete with...

"I very much hope for your support," Democratic front-runner and former Vermont governor, Howard Dean, told the same meeting, the Muslim Public Affairs Council annual convention.

Schwarzenegger and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa spoke at the July 23 event in front of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles building on Wilshire Boulevard. On Aug. 6, two days after Muslim leaders held a news conference to complain that the mayor and governor had ignored several requests to talk, Villaraigosa met privately with 10 Muslim leaders and apologized for...

    (Judicial Watch) — A new Homeland Security report compares terrorism to “ordinary crime” in metropolitan U.S. cities and omits the radical Islamic factor, instead finding “significant variability in the ideologies motivating terrorist attacks across decades.” This appears to be part of the Obama Administration’s Muslim outreach effort, which includes hiring a special Homeland Security adviser (Mohamed Elibiary) who supports a radical Islamist theologian and renowned jihadist ideologue. The Obama Justice Department also created a special Muslim Engagement Advisory Group to foster greater communication, collaboration and a new level of respect between law enforcement and Muslim and Arab-American communities. And, in...

"Don't talk to Muslims about religion," the California State University, Northridge, teacher reportedly said. "Because they turn to a different animal." The unidentified student reported the incident to CSUN's Muslim Student Association, which sent a letter to university President Jolene Koester, demanding that the teacher apologize and that the university conduct sensitivity training. "The school needs to provide a safe environment for our students' education," said Zabie Mansoory, Muslim association president. "It is a biology class, for God's sake. Religion shouldn't...

    Quietly, behind the scenes, the Muslim Brotherhood is enforcing censorship of all U.S. government training about Islam and the forces of Islamic jihad. Under the co-opted direction of National Security Council official, Quintan Wiktorowicz, key Cabinet Departments, including Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and State are purging their curriculum materials of any references about Islam that their Muslim Brotherhood advisors find objectionable. In effect, the national security policy of the U.S. government is being brought into compliance with Islamic law on slander. Under Islamic law (sharia), “slander” means “to mention anything concerning a person [a Muslim] that he would dislike.” Telling...

It was a fascinating but scary cultural experience. For three days I watched hundreds of intensely pious people sitting under an awning that reads "pro-Israel, pro-peace." But by far the dearest hopes of the folks on J Street were for the well-being, and especially the sovereignty, of a people whose leadership has stated repeatedly that its goal is to destroy Israel and murder Jews. I saw two overarching themes defining this conference: one, Iran...

    A controversial Islamic lobby group has issued a "travel advisory" for Muslim U.S. citizens attending a conference in Canada this weekend or participating in the upcoming pilgrimage to Mecca. The Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, says it's concerned the travelers will be "singled out by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials for special security checks and fingerprinting based solely on their attendance at both religious events."

    Counterterrorism efforts got a major boost last week when an American district court found three Muslim organizations and one individual, mostly based in the Chicago area, guilty of funding Hamas and fined them an astonishing US$156 million. The four were found liable for their roles in the murder of an American teenager, David Boim, on May 13, 1996, when he was shot by Hamas operatives as he waited for a bus near Jerusalem. This case is important in itself, providing some measure of justice and relief for the Boim family. Beyond that, it helps fight terrorism in four ways.First, it...

    "Conspiracy theories beget conspiracies. Imaginary plots generate actual ones, actual ones generate imaginary ones, mutually reinforcing each other in an endless, and ever-deepening, cycle of irrationality." Daniel Pipes wrote these words in a 1996 book on the role of conspiracy theories in the Middle East. Today, Pipes finds himself in the grips of the very cycle he described. Pipes' backers say it's not the first time that the writings of the Philadelphia-based Middle East scholar foreshadowed the future. Since the 1980s, Pipes has been warning that militant Islam had declared war on the United States. Before Sept. 11, he was...

    Jihad on “24”: FOX, Kiefer Sutherland Repent to Radical Islam By Debbie Schlussel It was too good to be true. FOX’s “24” is the most exciting show on TV, this season. Action. Adventure. And it actually tells the truth about Islamic terrorists. They are here on our shores, pretending to be loyal Americans, and they are plotting to take over our country. With the help of plenty of complicit Muslim-Americans, working for the government and government contractors. Unfortunately, 9/11 wasn’t enough to prove that to many Americans. Way too many Americans—especially the ones deciding what we see on the big...

    Editor's note: Readers may also be interested in Moderate Islam or Fata Morgana? and freemuslims.org Speaks Out.There is good news to report: The idea that "militant Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution" is finding greater acceptance over time. But there is also bad news, namely growing confusion over who really is a moderate Muslim. This means that the ideological side of the war on terror is making some, but only limited, progress.The good news: Anti-Islamist Muslims have found their voice since September 11. Their numbers include distinguished academics such as Azar Nafisi (Johns Hopkins), Ahmed al-Rahim (formerly...

    A major campus Hillel director’s physical attack on a journalist with whom he disagreed politically, has put the organization’s national leadership on the defensive. After an address by Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz last October, UCLA Hillel director Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller, a renowned left-wing activist, physically assaulted pro-Zionist journalist Rachel Neuwirth. The Los Angeles district attorney chose not to press charges, but rather required Rabbi Seidler-Feller to attend 36 hours of anger management training at his own expense. The rabbi was also ordered to issue Ms. Neuwirth a “heartfelt” apology. The event was first reported in the UCLA Daily Bruin...

    The U.S. Central Command has a new rapid-response team which uses information, rather than weapons, to combat terrorism, the New York Times recently reported. Hunting down conspiracy theories and bogus reports on Middle East websites, media outlets and in the social media sphere, the Digital Engagement Team works at "containing lies, misinformation or just misperceptions" about American policy and military actions. Meanwhile, over at the State Department, America's top diplomatic arm is running a companion program targeting young Muslims throughout the world who might be vulnerable to an extremist message. Those international efforts seem to be working, the story indicates....

    Watching this current communist Democrat regime causes a lingering feeling of being trapped in a twisted nightmare where the bad guys just keep on coming at you as you try to escape from some weird place with lots and lots of strange rooms. The bad guys are bad for the sake of being bad. Every day it’s some new outrage with these anti-American traitors! Yes, I said traitors! A couple of the many stories of the past week or so that make me want to scream have to do with this administration’s incessant bowing and scraping before the altar of...

    The Obama administration’s censoring of photographs of the late Osama bin Laden, lest they “offend” Muslims, is one thing; but what about censoring words, especially those pivotal to U.S. security? Weeks earlier, the Daily Caller revealed that “the Obama administration was pulling back all training materials used for the law enforcement and national security communities, in order to eliminate all references to Islam that some Muslim groups have claimed are offensive.” The move comes after complaints from advocacy organizations including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others identified as Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the 2004 Holy Land...

    an Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In U.S. educational circles, the prevention of "bullying" has become somewhat of a cause célèbre recently, despite its historical omnipresence in scholastic institutions. The trajectory of this trend, which is not what it appears on its face, is fraught with the potential of having a substantial corrosive effect on the First Amendment. First, what is bullying? Of course all of us understand what has been the standard definition of a bully, one who by their aggressive action, seeks to impose their will upon others. The Miriam Webster dictionary notes that bullying consists of "blustering"...

    With all of the hubbub surrounding President Obama’s apparent endorsement of the Ground Zero mega mosque and community center complex at last week’s White House Ramadan dinner, none of the cable talk shows that I have watched have bothered to examine the guest list. I think that is a mistake because the guest list gives some insight into what Obama really believes.Amongst all of the ambassadors and other dignitaries, two “community” leaders with a radical Islamic agenda stand out.The first was Dr. Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator of...

    American Muslim leaders say there is plenty of blame to go around in the uproar over the cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. Muslims have told European officials in Washington that the Danish government could have done a better job balancing free speech and respect for religious beliefs. Ahmed Younis, national director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), said his group organized a meeting Monday with the Danish ambassador to the United States "to advise on the tone of the response of the Danish government and to offer opportunities for solutions."
