The Project – Muslim Brotherhood Documents Date Back to 1982 and Obama Refuses to Release Them to Congress!

Glenn Beck recently produced a two-part documentary titled ‘The Project’.  He specifically asked Patrick Poole and other panel members whether or not our government has released any of the documents seized in the 1991 ‘Holy Land Foundation’ raid.  He was told the only item they have seen from the huge cache of documents was an FBI synopsis (smuggled by an FBI agent) . “Perhaps the most ironic point to note is that defendants in the Holy Land Foundation trial had access to these documents as part of the discovery process, yet when members of the House Judiciary Committee on oversight called on U.S. Attorney General to furnish them with the same, their attempts were stonewalled.” The panel also think the documents either have been or will be destroyed.

“To note, the Holy Land Foundation was found guilty in 2008 of providing $12 million in funding to Hamas. Named as un-indicted co-conspirators in the trial were the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), both of which have documented ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The Project’ Part I — All Totalitarian Ideologies Are Threat to U.S.

TheBlazeTV Unveils ‘The Project’ Part II: Civilization Jihad

In March I posted the following and feel this is a good time to share the damning information once again.  I think you will find The Project eerily similar to the 1982 documents found in the Swiss raid.

The following was sent to me by a friend via the Swissdefenceleague.  Switzerland is undergoing a transformation similar to that in the UK.  Muslim and Islamic factions are trying to take over the government and even want to replace the Swiss national flag.  The following document, found written in French, was sent through Google translator.  Note the date of  “The Project” (A Global Strategy for Islamic Policy) – 12/01/1982!  This is eerily similar to ”An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America” which was written in May 1991 and discovered during the Holy Land Foundation Trial.

In November 2001, European police were investing the luxurious villa of an Islamic bank on the banks of a Swiss lake. They discovered a document kept secret for nearly twenty years: the “Project”. This text, known only to a handful of specialists, describes the clandestine strategy which aims to “establish the kingdom of God on Earth”. All means are good in this world conquest: infiltration of society, propaganda, alliance with the fighters of the Holy War … The “Project” shows a section of hidden history of Islam in the West.

Inspired by the radical ideas of the Muslim Brotherhood, his followers have built in Europe and America a network of mosques, religious centers, charitable institutions pursuing the same goal: to create an ideal society based on the Koran, expand the sphere of Islam and to end the hegemony of Western civilization to the world. Conducted over several months in Europe and the United States, this survey raises important issues for the future of our societies: the Islamists who are really “moderates” who claim to represent Muslims in the West? What ideas do they spread, and with what methods? Rich in exclusive revelations, this book provides specific answers, informed, troubling.

By watching the news, we are able to see the “Project” takes place substantially as planned. Except that people are much more aware than they were the dangers of Islamism and they will abort the “Project”.

Towards a Global Strategy for Islamic Policy

(Starting points, items, procedures and missions)

This report presents an overview of an international strategy for Islamic policy. According to its guidelines, and in accordance therewith, the Islamic political authorities are developed in different regions. This is, first, to define the starting points of this policy and to articulate the components of each starting point and the most important procedures related to each starting point, we finally suggest some missions, as an example only, may Allah protect us. Below, the main starting points of this policy:

1. Know the terrain and adopt a scientific methodology for planning and implementation.

2. Get serious in work.

3. Reconcile international engagement and local flexibility.

4. Reconcile political engagement and the need to avoid isolation on the one hand, continuing education and institutional work of generations on the other.

5. Work to establish the Islamic state, along with progressive efforts to control local power centers through institutional work.

6. Work with loyalty alongside Islamic groups and institutions in various fields by agreeing on common ground in order to “cooperate on areas of agreement and to set aside areas of disagreement.”

7. Accept the principle of temporary cooperation between Islamic movements and national movements in general areas and areas of agreement such as the fight against colonialism, preaching and the Jewish state without having to form alliances. This requires, however, limited contacts between certain leaders, case by case, as these contacts do not violate the law. However, they do not pledge allegiance or trust them, knowing that the Islamic movement must be the cause of the initiatives and orientations taken.

8. Mastering the art of the possible, a provisional perspective, without abusing the basic principles, knowing that the teachings of Allah are all applicable. Must order the blâmable1 and forbidding, while giving a documented opinion. But we should not seek a confrontation with our adversaries, locally or globally, which would be disproportionate and could lead to attacks against the dawa2 or his disciples.

9. Continuously build the strength of the worldwide Islamic dawa and support movements engaged in jihad in the Muslim world, to varying degrees and as much as possible.

10. Helping monitoring systems many and varied, in many places, to gather information and adopt an informed and effective communication, able to serve the global Islamic movement. Indeed, surveillance, policy decisions and effective communication are complementary.

11. Adopt the Palestinian cause on a global Islamic, on a political level and through jihad because it is the keystone of the renaissance of the Arab world today.

FBI still refused access to Benghazi – Why? Instead of answering questions, Obama admin creating them…

It has been more than two weeks since the terrorist attack in Benghazi and the FBI is still unable to access the US Consulate. Why? There was inadequate or no security to protect Ambassador Stevens and other Americans. Why? The White House lied about the murders being an act of terrorism. Why?  And why is the FBI being denied access to the crime scene?  Instead of answering questions, the Obama administration is creating them.

The Obama administration has continually lied to us.  They have either outright lied or withheld information on the Ft. Hood shooting, the Arkansas recruiting center shooting, the shameless security leaks, Fast and Furious,  and now the Benghazi massacre.  Nixon was forced to resign for lying to us – so should Obama!  If he won’t resign (which we know the narcissist would never do), he needs to be fired – before he destroys us all.

In a CNN interview Former Bush advisor Fran Townsend tells us:

“They had difficulty, and we understand there was some bureaucratic infighting between the FBI and Justice Department on the one hand, and the State Department on the other, and so it took them longer than they would have liked to get into country. They’ve now gotten there. But they still are unable to get permission to go to Benghazi.”

FBI agents have made a request through the U.S. State Department for the crime scene to be secured, Townsend said, but that has not happened.

“The senior law enforcement official I spoke to said, ‘If we get there now, it’s not clear that it will be of any use to us,’” Townsend said.

The FBI team has conducted interviews of State Department and U.S. government personnel who were in Libya at the time of the attack, Townsend said, but the FBI’s request to directly question individuals who Libyan authorities have in custody was denied.


And this from Hot Air:

Former CIA analyst Bob Baer also thinks the Libyans are being uncooperative, and says he can’t remember a case where the FBI’s been barred from the scene of an attack since Iran 1979. Why the Libyan government would refuse to let the feds in to look around, I have no idea, but it’s highly suspicious given that they’re potentially risking U.S. foreign aid by refusing the request. The alternative explanation, that they want to let the feds in but simply can’t reliably secure the area with so many militias running around, is actually worse because it underscores just how perilous the situation was for Chris Stevens and the consulate without a serious American security detail. That’s what ABC says is happening: Benghazi’s just too dangerous for a U.S. government agency to be picking through the rubble, even though CNN and other media have found ways to gain access to the site. And yet, apparently, Stevens’s superiors decided he’d be better off with less security, not more. Huh.

The coverup continues – worse than Watergate?  You decide – in November!  Your security, and that of your family and country depend on it.

Unvetted: Obama’s Communist Roots And Mentor Unmasked


This film explores how, four years ago, America’s Survival, Inc. unmasked Barack Obama’s communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, and released his 600-page FBI file. Davis had been under surveillance for 19 years, suspected of espionage, and on the FBI’s “security index.” ASI President Cliff Kincaid discusses how Davis was identified and his identity confirmed. Kincaid also examines how the media continue to ignore the story of the century.



Suppose Michele Bachmann is right? (Islam seeks Supremacy, not Coexistence)

By Cal Thomas via WORLD Magazine

Like the ghosts of Shakespeare’s Banquo or Dickens’ Jacob Marley, the  specter of the late commie-hunting congressman from Wisconsin, Joseph  McCarthy, will always be with us. It is summoned up today, by some on  the left, who use it as a tool to thwart legitimate questions about  people and ideologies that seek to destroy America.

According to many commentators, the McCarthy spirit has inhabited Rep.  Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. In several letters to high-ranking government  officials, Bachmann has raised questions about Huma Abedin, a  Muslim-American, who is deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State  Hillary Clinton. Bachmann’s concern is Abedin’s relatives in the Middle  East, some of whom—such as Abedin’s mother—she claims “are  connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations.”  Abedin’s job, according to Bachmann, “affords her routine access to the  secretary and to policymaking.” And, as a result of that access, says  Bachmann, “The State Department, and in several cases, the specific  direction of the secretary of state, have taken actions recently that  have been enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its  interests.”

Sen. John McCain says Abedin is “a dedicated American.” Even if he is  correct, the larger issue is being obscured. Many in government and the  media don’t want to face the possibility that infiltration is a tactic  of Islamic extremists who repeatedly say they want to destroy not only  Israel but the “Great Satan” America. Such objectives should be taken  seriously, given their violent history.

If you revile Rep. Bachmann, perhaps former British Prime Minister Tony  Blair is more to your liking. Charles Moore of the London Daily  Telegraph writes that Blair “… now thinks he underestimated the power  of the bad ‘narrative’ of Islamist extremists. That narrative—that  ‘The West oppresses Islam’—’is still there; if anything, it has  grown.’ It seeks ’supremacy, not coexistence.’” Blair also expressed  fear that “The West is asleep on this issue.”

Blair’s view is echoed in Battle for Our Minds: Western Elites and the  Terror Threat, a new book by Michael Widlanski, a specialist in Arab  politics and a former journalist for mainstream publications such as The  New York Times, the Cox Newspapers-The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and The  Jerusalem Post. Widlanski’s main point is that political correctness has  stifled the West’s ability to understand and fight terror.

Among Widlanski’s criticisms is that the West “came to rely on ‘experts’  without field experience in, or scant knowledge of, the Middle East:  people who do not speak the languages, did not study the cultures, and do  not know the history. Even worse, some ‘experts’ have been forgiving  and even sympathetic to the terrorists and their aims.”

National Public Radio reported last month that “The FBI has conducted  more than 100 investigations into suspected Islamic extremists within  the military.”

What else would infiltration look like? It’s more than an academic  question, or a subject for spy novelists. Those who attack Michele  Bachmann should answer it.

It might look like CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations,  which sent a nasty letter to Bachmann concerning her comments about Ms.  Abedin. CAIR’s executive director, Nihad Awad, wrote, “We remain  eternally grateful that, like Sen. Joseph McCarthy before you, your  power is limited, enumerated, and constrained by our nation’s  constitution.”

According to The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report (GMBDR), “an  intelligence digest covering developments in the worldwide Muslim  Brotherhood network,” documents released in the 2007 Holy Land trial in  Dallas, in which federal prosecutors brought charges against the Holy  Land Foundation for funding Hamas and other “Islamic terrorist  organizations,” revealed the founders and current leadership of CAIR  were part of the Palestine Committee of the Muslim Brotherhood. A recent  post on the GMBDR website discussed an interview with the deputy leader  of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, in which he confirms a relationship  between his organization and CAIR.

Investigative research posted by the GMBDR “has determined that CAIR had  its origins in the U.S. Hamas infrastructure and CAIR and its leaders  have a long history of defending almost all individuals accused of  terrorism by the U.S. government, frequently calling such prosecutions a  ‘war on Islam.’”

In 2009, according to GMBDR, a U.S. federal judge ruled, “The government  has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA  (Islam in North America), and NAIT (North American Islamic Trust) with  (Holy Land Foundation), the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with  Hamas.”

This is what infiltration looks like.

Government and media elites may not like to hear it from Rep. Bachmann,  but suppose her concerns are valid? If people are uncomfortable with  her, they can listen to Tony Blair. All ties between Americans and  Islamic extremist groups need further and serious investigation.

FBI Tracking 100 Suspected Extremists In Military

Just what does ‘tracking’ mean?  The Army was aware of Nidal Hasan’s emails to Anwar Al-Awlaki but did not act on the information.  Had they done so, 13 people would still be alive!  We need to do more than track – we need to ACT!!! – Kasey

By  via NPR

The FBI has conducted more than 100 investigations into suspected Islamic extremists within the military, NPR has learned. About a dozen of those cases are considered serious.

Officials define that as a case requiring a formal investigation to gather information against suspects who appear to have demonstrated a strong intent to attack military targets. This is the first time the figures have been publicly disclosed.

The FBI and Department of Defense call these cases “insider threats.” They include not just active and reserve military personnel but also individuals who have access to military facilities such as contractors and close family members with dependent ID cards.

Officials would not provide details about the cases and the FBI would not confirm the numbers, but they did say that cases seen as serious could include, among others things, suspects who seem to be planning an attack or were in touch with “dangerous individuals” who were goading them to attack.

Details Revealed At Closed Congressional Hearing

The FBI and the Department of Defense declined to discuss the figures on the record, but three sources with direct knowledge confirmed that the numbers were revealed in a closed session of a House-Senate committee hearing in December. The FBI also declined to say whether it has compiled more up-to-date figures since that time.

“I was surprised and struck by the numbers; they were larger than I expected,” Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut and chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security, told NPR. He stopped short of confirming the numbers.

“I know one can say that as a percentage of the millions of people in active military service or working with contractors, the numbers you talk about are a small percentage of the total, but the reality is it only took one man, Nidal Hasan, to kill 13 people at Fort Hood and injure a lot more,” Lieberman said.

English: Major Nidal Malik Hasan, Fort Hood sh...

Hasan was an Army major at Fort Hood in Texas who is charged with opening fire on soldiers in the base’s processing center in November 2009. The rampage is considered the most serious terrorist attack on U.S. soil since the Sept. 11 attacks.

Prosecutors say Hasan had been in touch with an American-born radical imam, Anwar al-Awlaki, to ask for spiritual guidance ahead of the shooting; and Awlaki is said to have blessed it. Awlaki was killed in a drone attack in Yemen last year.

Investigators also say Hasan had been displaying signs of increasing radicalization before the shooting took place, but the behavior had not been properly reported. Hasan’s court-martial is set to begin on Aug. 20, and he faces the death penalty.

The FBI compiled its tally of Islamic extremist cases in the military late last year for a joint hearing that Lieberman co-chaired. The hearing was looking at possible threats to military communities inside the United States, and the number of cases was revealed at that time.

About A Dozen Cases Face Full Investigation

The FBI typically divides investigations into three categories: assessment, preliminary investigations, and then full investigations in which agents have enough evidence to justify using all the investigative tools at their disposal. As of last December, there were a dozen cases in that last category.

“This number speaks not only to the reality that there is a problem of violent Islamic extremists in the military, but also that the Department of Defense and the FBI since the Nidal Hassan case are working much more closely together,” said Lieberman.

Officials stressed that the FBI and the Department of Defense track all kinds of extremism within the military community from white supremacists to neo-Nazis, not just Islamic extremists.

But the Fort Hood shooting inspired new reporting procedures aimed at catching plots before they unfold. Since 2001, law enforcement officials have foiled and prosecuted more than 30 plots or attacks against military targets within the United States.

A Conviction Last Month

Just last month, an AWOL Muslim soldier named Naser Abdo was convicted of plotting to attack Fort Hood. Officers found components for an explosive device in Abdo’s hotel room not far from the base.

Abdo told the judge that the plot was supposed to exact some “justice” for the people of Afghanistan and Iraq. In an audio recording played during the trial, Abdo said his Islamic faith was part of the reason he planned the attack.

Lieberman says that Abdo actually called out Major Hasan’s name shortly after he was found guilty of conspiring to attack a restaurant just outside Fort Hood where active service members often went with their families. Abdo is expected to be sentenced in July. It is not clear whether his case was one of the cases on the FBI’s list.

Military Bases Considered Likely Targets

Officials say for many aspiring violent jihadis a military base is seen as fair game for an attack. Al-Qaida’s narrative revolves around the idea that America is at war with Islam the world over, and the perception is that the U.S. military is at the forefront of that battle.

Counterterrorism officials say that for many freshly minted jihadists, a military target is an easier choice and easier to justify than targeting a shopping mall or other soft civilian targets — precisely because it is seen as part and parcel of the battle.

“After the Fort Hood shooting, having just one serious case, much less having a dozen, is cause for concern,” says Bruce Hoffman, a professor and counterterrorism expert at Georgetown University and a distinguished scholar at the Wilson Center.

“You have to think about how people in the military community aren’t just your run-of-the-mill jihadis,” Hoffman says. “These are people who have access to guns and to bases and are supposed to have security clearances. This is not the community you want to be radicalizing.”

Another Holder Cover-up? Eric Holder Covers Up for Radical Islamists

By Ryan Mauro via Radical Islam

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is in the spotlight after the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted to hold him in contempt because he is refusing to provide documents related to the Fast and the Furious scandal. But there’s another scandal you should know about. For over one year, he has refused to hand over documents about the Muslim Brotherhood network in the U.S.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), vice chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, confronted Holder about the matter on Thursday, June 21. Rep. Gohmert wants Congress to have access to documents from the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history. Five Foundation officials were found guilty of funding Hamas and evidence introduced by the federal government shows it was set up by the Muslim Brotherhood’s secret “Palestine Committee” in the U.S.

Three prominent Muslim-American organizations were labeled by the federal government as “unindicted co-conspirators” in the trial-the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). The documents requested by Rep. Gohmert for the past year were provided to the Holy Land Foundation’s defense team, yet are being denied to Congress.

“They are terrorists, and we wanted the documents you gave to the terrorists. We are a year later, and we still don’t have them,” complained Rep. Gohmert. Holder replied that he’d only provide what is already available publicly.

Watch Rep. Gohmert grill holder at a Congressional hearing on the subject:

Rep. Gohmert is one of five members of Congress requesting investigations into the influence of Muslim Brotherhood-tied organizations and individuals in the U.S. government. As I reviewed here, this influence is far-reaching. It is very possible that the documents from the Holy Land trial would be embarrassing to many government officials, not to mention businesses and interfaith groups that have embraced Brotherhood entities. At the very least, they could provide further justification for the labeling of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT as “unindicted co-conspirators.”

The documents were originally requested on April 27, 2011 after reporter Patrick Poole broke the blockbuster story at Pajamas Media that Justice Department political appointees blocked the prosecution of one CAIR co-founder and, according to his high-level Justice Department source, other groups and individuals listed as “unindicted co-conspirators.”

Poole learned that Assistant Attorney General David Kris wrote a memo dated March 31, 2010 titled, “Declination of Prosecution of Omar Ahmad,” an individual who was present at a Muslim Brotherhood meeting in Philadelphia in 1993 to discuss how to support Hamas. The idea to create a new group was put forward at this meeting and Ahmad co-founded CAIR the next year. Ahmad was also personally listed as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land trial. The given reason to drop the prosecution was potential jury nullification but the source is certain that it was a political decision.

According to Poole’s source, “It was always the plan to initially go after the [HLF] leaders first and then go after the rest of the accomplices in a second round of prosecutions.” The original trial resulted in a mistrial, pushing back the planned prosecutions. The Obama Administration then came into office and they were stopped.

After the report broke, the Administration claimed that its predecessor had decided not to indict CAIR in 2004. Poole explains that this is true but it was because “They decided to get the bigger fish after they convicted the smaller fish.” Rep. Peter King confirmed that FBI officials and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Texas, which prosecuted the Holy Land Foundation, were ready to begin the second round of prosecutions and were outraged at how the political appointees stopped them.

Congressional sources later told Poole that Assistant Attorney General David Kris also dropped the prosecution of several officials involved with the International Institute of Islamic Thought, a Muslim Brotherhood front, and the SAAR Foundation/SAFA Group, which has disbanded since the federal government raided their offices. They were to be prosecuted on charges related to tax evasion and money laundering because Sami al-Arian, a Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader in the U.S., refused to testify and reveal their terrorist connections.

Poole reported that one of these protected officials is Jamal Barzinji. In October 2011, former Virginia Governor and current Democratic Senate candidate Tim Kaine spoke at an event honoring Barzinji. His ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas are very well-documented. FBI documents all the way back from 1987-1988 identify him as a Brotherhood operative. He is also a founder of the radical Dar al-Hijrah mosque, which Treasury Department records say “is a mosque operating as a front for Hamas operatives in the U.S.”

Rep. Gohmert slammed Holder for not prosecuting these groups and individuals when there is a “mountain of evidence” against them. He further revealed that “at least one of which now says it is working inside your [Holder’s] agency to help advise on the purge of counter-terrorism training materials.”

The role of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) has already been discovered. MPAC was founded by Brotherhood ideologues and works in tandem with the aforementioned groups, but was not labeled as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land trial. Rep. Gohmert was apparently referring to  CAIR, ISNA or NAIT.

On February 8, ISNA was part of an interfaith group that met with the FBI Director about the training materials. A FBI spokesperson said the agency would consider a proposal from the group to create a committee to review the materials. More recently, the White House’s new Director for Community Partnerships, George Selim, said that “There is [sic] hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues.”

Fast and the Furious isn’t the only controversy Holder is refusing to show documents about, but it’s probably the only one you’re hearing about.

Congressional Leaders Call for Investigations of Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of the Obama Administration

Reblogged from The Counter Jihad Report

Center for Security Policy | Jun 15, 2012

Washington, DC, June 14, 2012: Five influential Members of Congress called yesterday for the inspectors general (IGs) of government departments with national security responsibilities to investigate whether their agencies are being subjected to influence operations mounted as part of what the Muslim Brotherhood calls its “civilization jihad.” This initiative holds out hope that a grave, and largely unremarked, threat may thus be recognized and thwarted in time.


The authors of letters sent to the IGs for the Departments of State, Justice, Defense and Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence are:

  • Rep. Michele Bachman, a member of the House Intelligence Committee and Chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus
  • Rep. Trent Franks, Chairman of the House Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution a member of the House Armed Services Committee
  • Rep. Louie Gohmert, Vice Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security
  • Rep. Tom Rooney, Deputy Majority Whip and member of the House Armed Services Committee
  • Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee’s Oversight Subcommittee
