This has been spreading like wildfire across the internet today and I wanted to share it here, as well as include my two cents. Obviously, as the recent report came out from the Center for Security Policy; as reported below, by Erik Stackelbeck of CBN news; "Shariah: The Threat to America" advises the Obama administration to stop ignoring the link between Islam and terrorism.
Here is Stackelbecks report on Shariah and the threat to America:
The report (read it here) is sponsored by the Center for Security Policy, a leading national security think tank in Washington, D.C. It's a comprehensive, 177-page expose on how radical Islamists are attempting to establish sharia law in the United States--and it offers a fresh strategy on how to fight back against them.
The report--which has received the endorsement of key Republican House members Michelle Bachmann, Peter Hoekstra and Trent Franks--was put together by a 19-member all-star team of national security experts, including former high-ranking officials from the CIA and U.S. military, a former Justice Department prosecutor and a former FBI special agent.
They call themselves "Team B II." The original Team B was focused on the threat from Soviet communism during the 1970s. Leaders of the new group say Islamic sharia law represents a threat every bit as dangerous.
"We've put together a superb team--Team B--to provide that second opinion with respect to today's totalitarian ideology," said Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy. "Its ambitions, its capabilities. The progress it's making towards its stated goal of replacing this country, this constitution, this government--with sharia."
The new report seeks to present an alternative strategy to what the Obama administration is putting forth and criticizes the administration's refusal to acknowledge the religious and ideological motivations behind Islamic terrorism.
If this video of public school children amped below,and shared on American Thinker via Americans for Peace and Tolerance, isn't a wake up call into how Islam and shariah law are creeping into our society than I don't know what will wake some of the pacifist&tolerant, politically correct liberals up. Not to mention many schools in the US, are funded by the Islamic group Fethullah Gulen Community (FGC) from Turkey. Charter schools also receive federal funding as Charter Schools.
American's need to wake up to the dangers surrounding us before we end up right where they want us and the Muslim population increases to a point where the same outrage occurs in the US that is happening in Europe in places like France. Which @merriemerrie shares here in this post about 'What ISLAM is Not' http://t.co/U215AZ2 and which this shocking video reveals:
For more info on how those schools are being funded see this report from Act for America:
Turkish-based Islamist movement that has a significant network here in the United States. Given Turkey’s history of secular, democratic government, and some of the remarks made by President Obama in his recent speech there, many of our members and other readers will likely be surprised by what we have found.
I suspect that even many who are well-read on the issue of Islamism are unfamiliar with the Fethullah Gulen Community (FGC), a movement a February 2009 article in the respected Jane's Islamic Affairs Analyst labeled “Turkey’s third power.” Indeed, the article noted in its Key Points: “Turkey’s Islamist Gulen movement, while a powerful political force, is largely an unfamiliar entity to the West.”
The FGC is named after Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish imam who now lives in the United States. He fled Turkey in 1998 to avoid prosecution on charges that he was attempting to undermine Turkey’s secular government with the objective of establish an Islamic government. Since Gulen’s arrival here the Department of Homeland Security tried to deport him, but he successfully fought the effort in federal court because it was ruled he was an individual with “extraordinary ability in the field of education” – although he has no formal education training.
The FGC emerged in Turkey in the 1970’s. According to the Jane’s Islamic Affairs Analyst piece, Gulen stated that “in order to reach the ideal Muslim society 'every method and path is acceptable, [including] lying to people.’” This public acknowledgement of taqiyya (employing deception to advance Islam) is highly pertinent to Gulen’s activities here in the United States.
A recent article in the Middle East Quarterly by Rachel Sharon-Kreskin titled “Fethullah Gulen’s Grand Ambition” sheds light on Gulen’s background:
Gülen was a student and follower of Sheikh Sa'id-i Kurdi (1878-1960), also known as Sa'id-i Nursi, the founder of the Islamist Nur (light) movement. After Turkey's war of independence, Kurdi demanded, in an address to the new parliament, that the new republic be based on Islamic principles. He turned against Atatürk and his reforms and against the new modern, secular, Western republic.
Simply put, he is brilliantly and patiently employing taqiyya on a global scale, because this strategic approach is not confined to Turkey.
Here in the U.S. the FGC runs over 90 charter public schools in at least 20 states. This was brought to our attention by ACT! for America members who actually have relatives who teach in one of these schools, an illustration of the growing reach of ACT! for America’s “eyes and ears” across our country. For obvious reasons we cannot reveal the identity of our sources.
Our readers may be familiar with the numerous emails we have released regarding the operation of the Tarek ibn Zayed Academy (TiZA), a publicly funded charter school in Minnesota that is so blatantly Islamic in nature that the Minnesota Department of Education issued two citations against it and the ACLU is suing it. FGC schools appear to be very different, and reflect the Gulen’s exhortation to “move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers…”
Indeed, the fact that so little has been written about the FGC schools here in the U.S., as well as the accolades that have been accorded the FGC as a model of “moderation” by some in our government, would appear to confirm that the FGC and its schools are doing an excellent job of heeding Gulen’s exhortation and masking their true intent.
I asked specifically if the schools promote Islam in the way that the TiZA school in Minnesota does. I was told that this was not the case in the schools these sources were familiar with. However, one particular school (and likely numerous others) appears to be in violation of state law because the school’s affidavit for its charter does not acknowledge that it is connected with a religious institution or group. In other words, those who chartered this school practiced taqiyya by hiding this fact. (Enterprising readers may want to research this with respect to FGC schools around the country. For a list of the FGC network in America and its schools, click here).
What’s more, the schools appear to be a source of recruitment for outside school activities sponsored by the FGC, such as summer camps, which would be in keeping with the pattern of recruitment of members and followers that FGC employs worldwide, according to both the Jane’s and Middle East Quarterly articles.
It's time to wake up and oppose all attempts to spread Shariah and Islam in our country,schools and most of all stop the attempt at brainwashing the most vulnerable our children!

Public school children forced to pray to Allah
Shocking video was released today by Americans for Peace and Tolerance:
The video was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center - Boston's controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque - during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. Yet the video reveals that the students are being blatantly mis-educated about Islam. A mosque spokesperson is seen teaching the children that in Mohammed's 7th century Arabia women were allowed to vote, while in America women only gained that right a hundred years ago. This seems to be an increasingly recurring theme in American schools - the denigration of western civilization and the glorification of Islamic history and values. In fact, just recently, the American Textbook Council revealed that the New York State high school regents exam whitewashes the atrocities that occurred during the imperialistic Islamic conquest of Christian Byzantium, Persia, the African continent, and the Indian subcontinent, even as it demonizes European colonialism in South America.
The mosque spokesperson also taught the students that the only meaning of Jihad in Islam is a personal spiritual struggle, and that Jihad has historically had no relationship with holy war. As far as we know, the school has not corrected these false lessons.
