We see in this instance that suspicious and most likely nefarious forces from within the Islamofascist community work in parallel with the American Fourth Estate to quell honest and open dialogue and debate on the root causes of Islamofascist aggression.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted coconspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing federal court case, has been cited by most every terrorism and counterterrorism expert and analyst as having links to Hamas.
Several of their high-ranking officials have been found to have had ties to terrorist organizations. Yet, incredibly, in the face of this knowledge, the FBI and other governmental agencies continue to engage CAIR as a credible civil rights group, going as far as to enlist their “help” in the training of government personnel on the issue of tolerance toward the Islamic community.
The mainstream media and organizations like CAIR are just two obstructionist entities regarding the open and honest discussion of the causes of radical Islamist terrorism, Islamofascist aggression. Their motives are ideologically driven.
The mainstream media has an embedded progressive-liberal agenda – an anti-American bias, as it were – that has been documented in research done by the Pew Public Policy Research Center. Organizations like CAIR have a vested interest in seeing the radical and unyielding tenets of Islam prevail over American doctrine as mandated by the US Constitution.
But, even though these two forces are formidable, even though they, both singularly and collectively, pose a serious and substantial threat to our nation’s very existence, the greatest threat to the longevity of our country, to our survival as a nation, is our own apathy.
The average American spends more time watching reality television than they do exploring the real threat facing our nation in Islamofascist aggression. Most haven’t any idea that mosques promoting Wahhabism ideology, ideology that preaches hate for the West and the downfall of the United States, funded by Saudi Arabia, exist in our own neighborhoods, our own towns and cities.
One document of Wahhabist origin brought to light by the Holy Land Foundation trial, the Ikhwan in America, states:
"The process of settlement is a 'Civilization-Jihadist Process.' The Ikhwan 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 so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions."
As we apathetically, narcissistically, place our own lives, our own self-importance, our own wants and desires above our responsibility to gather knowledge on a foe whose mission is the demise of our very way of life, that foe exists, recruits, trains and plots in our own neighborhoods, our own religious communities and our own government agencies.
We, We the People, are too lazy, too comfortable, too apathetic to engage in our constitutionally mandated civic responsibility to be aware, to provide proper government oversight. Instead we allow the mainstream media to dictate the political agenda and the faux-civil rights organizations to set the ideological parameters.
We are our own worst enemy. Think about that, think about the abdication of our civic responsibilities, the next time you are watching your child sleep, the next time you are worried about their future. Then do something about it.
