Understanding how the FBI became so ineffective when investigating potential Islamic terrorists requires taking an honest look at how and why ALL references to “radical Islamic terrorism,” “Islam,” “Muslim,” “jihad,” “Sharia” and related terms have been removed from ALL federal documents; including vitally important law enforcement and national security training materials and programs. And reading this shocking article from October 2011 is a good start since it quotes then Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole saying 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. It also quotes Cole as stating, “I recently directed all components of the Department of Justice to re-evaluate their training efforts in a range of areas, from community outreach to national security.”
One of the most shocking aspects of the above report is that all references to Islam were removed from federal terror training manuals and videos because it was dictated/demanded by Islamic organizations known to have funded Islamic terrorists, including CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and various Muslim Brotherhood front groups identified in the Holy Land Foundation terror fundraising trial of 2004. In fact, Salam Al-Marayati, the president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), actually wrote an Op-ed in the Los Angeles Times demanding an apology to Muslim Americans and that all references to Islam and the Muslim community be removed from all training materials, that they be allowed a say regarding such training materials and threatened that otherwise the FBI could no longer count on Muslims to help prevent Islamic terrorism. Some of the statements he found offensive included, ”…claims that “devout” Muslims are more prone toward violence, that Islam aims to “transform a country’s culture into 7th century Arabian ways,” that Islamic charitable giving is a “funding mechanism for combat” and that the prophet Muhammad was a “violent cult leader.”…warns of a “‘Civilizational Jihad’ stretching back from the dawn of Islam and waged today in the U.S. by ‘civilians, juries, lawyers, media, academia and charities’ who threaten ‘our values.’ The goal of that war: ‘Replacement of American Judeo-Christian and Western liberal social, political and religious foundations by Islam.'” However, despite his claims otherwise, everything Salam Al-Marayati objected to and the Obama administration scrubbed is very well documented in court documents from the HLF trial, which included a copy of The Muslim Brotherhood’s Strategic Plan For America. So the following excerpts from that document should be more than enough to raise concern for anyone reading this because it says”…presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is.”…”…the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry out [sic] this grand mission as a ‘Civilization Jihadist’ responsibility.”…“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”…“We must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’” Wow, that’s a perfect script and portrayal of exactly what they’ve been doing, so our president and many others are literally aiding and abetting their plans for a global Islamic State!
Reading this very informative article about MPAC reveals much more about the kind of organizations the Obama administration has allowed to have approval/veto power and input regarding Islamic terror training for all federal agencies; as well as how their connections with the highest levels of our government existed long before the current administration. And according to this article, the document purge began in earnest, along with a ban on linking terrorism to Muslims or Islam in any way. It also demonstrates how Muslims have received extra-Constitutional consideration, special rights and benefits not offered to other religious groups by the Obama administration.
Needless to say, it didn’t take long for security and terrorism analysts and experts to raise concerns about the consequences of a total ban on all Islamic references in every area of government. But it’s hard to imagine a more outrageous example of that than what’s reported in this article about the FBI editing an online Anti-Radicalization Game and removing ALL references to Muslims or Islamic terrorists After CAIR complained AND suggested focusing on “right-wing extremists” instead. Well, believe it or not, that’s EXACTLY what they did! So now the game features an example of a “white supremacist rally,” and players are told to commit acts of violence in the name of white supremacy! Lord, help this country!
From the time President Obama took office in 2009, he started banning what he deemed offensive anti-Islamic language and policies, and since that time, our country has not been safer; in fact, we’ve had even more attempted or completed Islamic terrorist attacks than ever before, including the following:
June 2009 – Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, sent by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, attacked a military recruiting office and killed one soldier and wounded another in Little Rock, AR.
September 2009 – Najibullah Zazi, al Qaeda trained, tried to detonate bombs in New York City’s subway.
November 2009 – Army Major Nadal Malik Hassan, an Islamic al-Awlaki follower, opened fire at a soldier processing center, killing thirteen and wounding over thirty at Fort Hood, TX.
December 2009 – Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian, tried to carry out an al Qaeda plot to explode a bomb hidden in his underwear on a flight to Detroit.
May 2010 – Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani-American citizen who told the judge he didn’t mean it when he swore allegiance to America, attempted to detonate a car bomb in Times Square.
September 2012 – al Qaeda terrorists attacked the US Consulate and killed four in Benghazi, Libya.
April 2013 – Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Muslim brothers from Chechnya, killed three and wounded over two hundred and sixty in bombing at the Boston Marathon.
December 2013 – Terry Lee Loewen, radicalized by extremist Islamic ideology online, attempted a suicide bombing at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.
September 2014 – Alton Nolen, fired after aggressively trying to convert co-workers to Islam, beheaded one woman and was attempting to behead another one when a company official shot him at a packing plant in Moore, OK.
October 2014 – Zale Thompson, an Islamic convert for two years who posted “anti-government, anti-Western, anti-white” rants, wounded two policemen in hatchet attack in Queens, New York City.

December 2015 – Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a married Pakistani couple pledging allegiance to ISIS, shot and killed fourteen and seriously wounded twenty-two at a Christmas party in San Bernardino, CA.
January 2016 – Edward Archer, who later pledged allegiance to ISIS at the hospital, shot a Philadelphia police officer in a marked car and was shot by the officer as he fled the scene.
May 2016 – A 40-year old Muslim man arrested for alleged plot to bomb a Florida synagogue on the Passover holiday, leaving a note attributing the attack to ISIS.
June 2016 – Omar Mateen, who called 911 and a TV newsroom to declare allegiance to ISIS during terrorist attack, shot and killed forty-nine and wounded fifty-three at a gay nightclub in Orlando, FL.
In light of so many incidents of Islamic terrorism (which in no way covers them all since many are swept under the rug for political expediency), how does it make any sense to forbid FBI agents and others in our government (particularly when vetting potential refugees or immigrants) to investigate or take into consideration possible ties to known radical Islamic groups? Islamic groups are literally carrying out their plan for a global Islamic State, and despite having explicit details of their strategy to do so, our own government is complicit instead of protecting us and the American values we hold so dear. Is it possible that Americans now value politically correct sensibilities more than the lives of our citizens? I certainly hope not and will continue praying for God to bring the things that are done in darkness to light, with the hope that the eyes of our understanding will be opened before it’s too late.
