As a follow-up to last night’s post, here are the details about Chris Holton, of the Center for Security Policy, and what his presentation on Shariah law and Islam entailed. There was a lot of information covered and in an attempt to not make this post too lengthy for patience and too jumpy to connect its dots, please bear with me. Here it is.

In May of 2007, the Pew Research Center conducted a survey among all walks of Muslim Americans and one particular question they asked was this:

“Can suicide bombing of civilian targets to defend Islam be justified?”

Among the 2.35 million Muslims in America, in 2007, including 1.4 million over the age of 18 (the target group of the survey), this was the response:

Often/sometimes: 8%

Rarely: 5%

Don’t know/refuse to answer: 9%

Never: 79%

At least 13%, and an undecided 9%, entertain the idea of suicide bombings targeting civilians in America.

Ignoring the 9% who don’t know or refuse to answer, the 13% alone that do condone suicide bombings comprise 182,000 Muslims in America, according to this Pew survey.

This same question was asked to adult Muslims under the age of thirty and these were the results.

Often/sometimes: 15%

Rarely: 11%

Don’t know/refuse to answer: 5%

Never: 69%

Again, this survey was taken four years ago. Among the age group most recruited for suicide bombings, at least 26%, and an undecided 5%, entertain the idea of suicide bombings targeting civilians in America.

Ignoring the 5% who don’t know or refuse to answer, the 26% alone that do condone suicide bombings comprise 109,200 Muslims in America, according to this Pew survey. That percentage exceeds one out of every four Muslims between the ages of eighteen and thirty in America who find suicide bombings to be at least somewhat acceptable.

This was another question:

"What is your view of Al Qaeda?"

Favorable: 5%

Somewhat unfavorable: 10%

Don’t know/refuse to answer: 27%

Very unfavorable: 58%

Same question to Muslim adults under 30:

Favorable: 7%

Somewhat unfavorable: 16%

Don’t know/refuse to answer: 19%

Very unfavorable: 58%

70,000 Muslims in America admit a favorable view of Al Qaeda.

29,400 Muslims in America between the age of 18 and 29 admit to having a favorable view of Al Qaeda.

This was in 2007.

The Muslim religion is far too large to label in any one way. But it appears that a significant and threatening minority of Islam is hijacking the peaceful majority of the Muslim religion.

Moving on, in 1991 documents were uncovered in America from a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that has sired Al Qaeda and any other organization you can think of that deals terrorism in the name of Islam. The documents were titled “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America”. (Here is some more information on the documents)

These were the contents:

1. An introduction in explanation

2. The concept of settlement

3. The process of settlement

4. Comprehensive settlement organizations

The mission statement:

“The Ikhwan (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 so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

“Sabotaging its miserable house…by their hands.”


Abdurahman Alamoudi. 2004. Alamoudi was the president of the American Muslim Foundation under Clinton’s and Bush’s presidencies and he is currently spending the rest of his life in jail. He held an extremely high position with much clout and much say in our president’s decisions regarding the Muslim community in America. Alamoudi was a terrorist and, along the lines of the above mentioned mission statement of “sabotage” and implosion by our own hands, he infiltrated the United States to the highest political position a Muslim can hold in this country. He had a hand in global terrorist attacks, he was a mouthpiece and an ear for organizations like Al Qaeda, and he had every desire to kill Americans through acts of terrorism, and he was shoulder to shoulder with two of our presidents.

There is much more to be said but I think this is sufficient enough to make you lift an eyebrow and mull things over.

1,315.6 miles to go.


  1. "McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence. The term has its origins in the period in the United States known as the Second Red Scare, lasting roughly from the late 1940s to the late 1950s and characterized by heightened fears of communist influence on American institutions and espionage by Soviet agents."


  2. "McFactyism is the practice of listing statistics and facing facts which are present and could potentially lead to tragic outcomes. The term has its origin in acknowledging evidence which exists and not ignoring it."
