Deadly Infection

Only recently have I become aware of the depths to which political correctness has permeated our culture. I knew it was bad, but I didn’t know how bad. It’ll be the ruin of us if we don’t kill it and comb its nits out of our hair.
I began to get a clue at a private reception for Dutch Member of Parliament Geert Wilders in Washington last February. After Wilders was escorted out by his bodyguards (radical Muslims ordered him killed for making a movie called “Fitna.”), I found myself in extended conversation with a young Defense Department analyst who had been tasked by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to research and report on the ideology of our radical Muslim enemies. He immersed himself in Islamic law and came to the conclusion that it’s the radical Muslims who appear to have the doctrinal base in Islam, not the moderates.

He said that most of the highest officials at the Pentagon rejected his brief. Then they rejected the young man himself - and that was during the Bush Administration. The Pentagon, he said, “as an institution,” wanted to believe that the Radical Muslim interpretation of jihad, which is holy war against infidels worldwide - convert them or kill them, was an aberration.

I had hitherto believed that our National Security planners knew the threat, but were just being polite in their public statements. Not so, according to my young friend. Radical Muslims posing as moderates had more influence with Pentagon planners than he did, he told me. It was their advice the Pentagon was heeding. I’m withholding his name because that’s how he apparently wants it at this point. Last week he was interviewed by Bill Whittle of Pajamas TV (Go here, then click on "The Islamic Infiltration, Part 1") and appeared only in silhouette as he told his story.

Next, Whittle interviewed a former FBI special agent (also a silhouette) who spent most of his fifteen-year career working on the Islamic movement in the United States, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Islamic doctrine. He said our Department of Homeland Security is being advised by people from the Council for American Islamic Relations or CAIR. The trouble is, he claims they’re a front for Hamas - a Radical Islamic organization. The Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Islamic Society of North America - ISNA - a huge financial entity for Hamas in the United States.”

A little background for readers: The Muslim Brotherhood, according to author Robert Spencer, spawned both Hamas and al Qaeda. Khalid Sheik Muhammed, who planned the September 11th attacks for al Qaeda and goes on trial in New York City soon, belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now back to the anonymous FBI agent in Whittle’s interview: “CAIR and ISNA (both closely affiliated with Hamas),” he said, “are the two groups that DOD, DHS, the State Department all use to do their Muslim outreach in North America. “They sit in on brainstorming about investigative techniques that our agents are using in the field.”

“I have to stop you,” said Whittle, “because, frankly, that sounds so absurd that I have to really make sure I’m understanding you correctly. Are you saying that the radicalized Muslim groups are invited in to learn our investigative techniques, that they’re invited in to get their feedback on how we’re going to fight against them. Is that what I understood you to say?”

“Yes,” he answered. “The General Counsel of the FBI invites them in as well as the ACLU and other groups in [to make sure that whatever our government agencies did] was okay and not offensive to these organizations.  . . . that’s nothing short of outrageous.”

“So you’re giving away the farm in order to make sure their feelings don’t get hurt,” said Whittle.

Evidently, political correctness could be fatal.

“There’s no training for local law enforcement officials about the real nature of the threat,” said the agent. “The training they get is given by agents of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“How did this happen?” asked Whittle. “How did [it] get this far?”

“The Muslim Brotherhood has a long-term strategy,” said the agent. “They’re well organized with hundreds of front groups that support their public relations, their research arms, they have insinuated themselves into our largest universities. They have Muslim Student Associations (MSA), which is [sic] the first Muslim Brotherhood organization that formed in the United States in 1963. MSA is on every major college campus in the United States recruiting people to the Brotherhood on our own campuses.”

No wonder we haven’t captured Osama Bin Laden after eight years.

When we know how closely foxes are consulted on the design our National Security chicken coop, we can begin to understand why our Commander-in-chief said he wasn’t sure Fort Hood’s Major Hasan was a radical Muslim after he shot more than forty of our soldiers while yelling “Allahu Akbar!” or why he said the Christmas Pantybomber was “an isolated extremist.” We can understand why he won’t call this a war with Radical Islam and instead refers to it as “Overseas Contingency Operations.”

Radical Muslims are fanatic, yes, but they understand us better than we understand ourselves. They know we’re so infected with political correctness that we’re more afraid of offending them than we are of losing a war to them.

Very true, to the radicals you are speaking of this is a "holy war." They truly believe that beheading infidels (along with major terrorist acts) is the will of Allah. The very scary part is that they are infiltrating the USA and I believe wish to attack us from the inside out by continuing to recruit extremist members from inside US jails and prisons. No one wants to talk about this, but it is part of the radical’s plan.

A reviewer on Amazon says:
It is all rooted in the Koran itself and in Islamic history. See Mark Gabriel's book, Islam and Terrorism. He was a professor of Islamic history, which drove him to doubt this faith and finally see the truth.

I hope that people do not just read your article here and forget about this subject. I hope that folks do their own research by spending some time at the library learning about this subject, and not just one book!

Very thought provoking and articulate posts. I dropped by to say 'Hi' because of several common interests. Thank you for site . . . I know at least one journalist not bending to the political correctness mumbo jumbo.

"We have met the enemy and he is us," said Pogo. It is obvious that PC is killing the once great America and our government and Congress are its authors. Why more of us cannot see it is because we are too busy with our hands out. God help us all!

Those of us who remember the disastrous results of European countries' ignoring the Nazi's Fifth Column, simply find it incredulous that there is an unacknowledged Muslim Fifth Column well entrenched in our politically correct country.

Is anyone surprised about this?

Tom, you are right on. Momma has it right as well, do your research. It will scare you (as it should). I recommend two books,"The Looming Tower", L. Wright; and "Nine Parts of Desire", G. Brooks. These give a well researched history of the radical Islamic movement and life as a Muslim. Beside destroying our country financially, we are denying the threats to it as well.

"Radical Muslims posing as moderates had more influence with Pentagon planners than he did, he told me. It was their advice the Pentagon was heeding."

Almost reminds me of the time McCarthy waved his paper around saying "I have here in my hand a list of 205 [State Department employees] that were known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping the policy of the State Department."

In fact, McCarthy never produced any solid evidence that there was even one communist in the State Department.

I often disagree with Tom but somehow I find comparing him to the ravings of 'Tail Gunner Joe' to be a bit much. Most of his information has some basis in fact, very much unlike Senator McCarthy's lists.

You should write much more about Islam. It is definitely one of the greatest dangers to the Western World in our time.

The danger of islam consists in the fact that its spiritual (???) component is not to be had without its extensive grip on government (Caliphate/world domination) and legal matters (sharia).

I have been researching and educating my friends about islam for 4 years now. If any of your visitors want to learn more I advise they google the blog "Gates of Vienna" or Robert Spencer's "JihadWatch" and read his "islam 101", all excellent resources with transparent documentation.

One document that I only found 2 days ago and which was extremely well hidden but seems to influence US policy towards the muslim world within and outside the US can be found HERE. Go read at least the "executive summary" of it!

Hello Tom and fellow Comments section posters and lurkers. I wanted to share some great news with all of you today...

In honor of Obama's first year in Office I gave him a present today. A vote for Scott Brown!

Staff Infection is most commonly caused by bacteria that lives everywhere on the human body. Most people unknowingly go their entire life with bacteria living on their skin. Bacteria helps us do many things like digest food, clean up old skin and remove waste from our bodies. Bacteria can go bad and revolt against it's host and a staph infection is a case of bacteria gone bad.

Good post. Deadly infections pose a significant risk to national security.
