SHOCK CLAIM Former FBI Counterterrorism Agent: Forget Prevention, Jihadi Network All Over America

islamic-jihad (1)

Friday, following the San Bernardino episode of ISIS attacks, on FoxNews’ Outnumbered, Andrea Tantaros distilled the big problem we in America have when it comes to Islam, ISIS, and the reaction – specifically by the media – to obvious terror attacks by them: ISIS knows American culture and we are being played like finely tuned violins.

(This writer would submit it’s more like the entire strings section using the finest instruments the late Baroque period produced, including the golden period of Stradivarius, and violincellos from Venice.)

As it happened, that same day, Breitbart News Daily’s Sirius network broadcast an interview with former Federal Bureau of Investigations counterterrorism agent John Guandolo who runs  In that interview, Mr. Guandolo made some startling claims about Islam and the Islamic State and their operations in the United States that lend more than a little credence to Tantaros’ claim, and doesn’t say much about the media doing their jobs:

  • The 2,200 mosques, centers and Islamic organizations hide a much larger and broader network of jihadists that has the goal of installing Sharia Law in the United States.  Guandolo describes them as “hostile.”
  • Based on property records, over three quarters of these organizations and centers are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood via the North American Islamic Trust, the banking arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Islamic Centers supported and trained the San Bernardino terrorist, the UC Merced stabber, the Chattanooga shooter, and the Boston Bombers.  Movement and activity tracing this can be followed.
  • The largest Islamic organization in the country, Islamic Society of North America, was founded by an Al-Qaeda operative who is a former advisor to President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore.  That man is now in prison.

If these claims aren’t scary enough – and they should be to any lover of western civilization with half a brain – Guandolo claims to have started one FBI training program on this gigantic network hiding in plain sight in 2006 and another in 2007.  Agents from across federal law enforcement were trained to understand the vastness of this network until:

…the “most prominent Muslim Brotherhood Organizations like the Islamic Society of North America, Muslim Public Affairs Council, and the Hamas organization called the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) — complained to the White House about the training inside the government at the FBI.”

And the Obama Administration/government shut down the programs.  The erasure was so thorough that Guandolo claims federal officials who go through his training programs have no idea that this network is in place and fully operational.  For generations now.  (Imagine that.)

Really, though, if all readers’ blood isn’t boiling just yet, the most startling assertion from Guandolo was this:

Guandolo said he “came to understand very deeply the massive jihadi network we have in the United States” and discovered that “the leaders of the Islamic organizations… were actually interfacing with government leaders and advising them with how to proceed in the war on terror, as it was called.”

Guandolo realized that “we were being advised by the enemy on how to investigate and deal with the enemy” and “and that’s why I started the training.”

This is where the being played like the finest string section comes in, fiddles be damned.  The Islamic terrorists were telling our government how to “defeat them.”  (And the Occupier of the Oval Office says if we Americans surrender our guns, the terrorist attacks will stop.  Yeah, sure.)

Guandolo also discussed a court case from 2008, U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation that outlined the jihadi network after a fifteen (15) YEAR investigation by the FBI:

“that the most prominent Islamic organizations in America and North America are a part of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, the jihadi network here.” Guandolo said that “internal documents entered into evidence say that the purpose of this network is to wage civilization jihad… until the entire world, and specifically the United States, is under Sharia law and the Islamic State is established here.”

(Information on U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation can be found here.)  Remember, dear reader, that was in 2008, after 15 YEARS.  The network was already established by the time Bill Clinton took office in 1993.

Guandolo also claims that members and former officials of these “prominent” Islamic organizations work with the FBI, CIA, and cabinet agencies to set policy.

He mentioned that the previous president of ISNA Mohamed Magid works “very closely with the White House and sits on the Homeland Security Advisory Committee with a secret clearance.

Guandolo emphasized that these Muslim leaders are the ones that are working with the FBI, Pentagon, Department of Homeland Security, National Security staffs.

“Look at our policy for domestic terrorism… and you can track it back to these organizations,” he said, adding that “they write policy” and say “look, this is offensive to Muslims and this is how you need to do it, and we have done it.”

If that isn’t enough to put you off your tea and coffee, patriotic American, you have a stronger stomach than this writer.  The playing of America isn’t just of the strings section. It’s the brass, percussion, and most of the woodwinds to boot.  Maybe even throw in a 700 rank pipe organ since nine out of the ten largest organs in the world are in the United States – AND MUSIC IS NOT SHARIA.

Let’s face it, Islam as a whole is at war with the west, and they have been very patiently and persistently putting people into place all over the United States and ingratiating themselves at the highest levels of government, softening up resistance to the idea that Islam is not compatible with our culture.  (Where did COEXIST come from?  Hmm.)  When thwarted or slighted, these people throw temper tantrum after tantrum and try to instill THEIR ideals, supplanting real Americans’ traditions and laws.  It has been our frustration for a number of years now.  What we did not realize – and still do not fully get as trusting as many Americans are – is that this war has been underway for decades utilizing the same sort of stealth the communists employed in both our government and the Catholic Church.  The purpose: bring both down.

The jihadi network is alive and well, not just in Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Saudi Arabia, but all over the west, and that is where the world’s powerful nations are NOT looking for them.  This is a problem.  Until the vipers’ nests are cleaned out here at home, and in Europe, there will be no such thing as “containment.”  The beast already laid its eggs everywhere it desires to conquer.  (Hint: revisit the 1980s “Aliens” movie series.  Sort of like that.)
