Clare Lopez, a strategic policy and intelligence expert with a focus on Middle East, national defense, WMD, and counterterrorism issues spoke to World Net Daily in an exclusive interview and said that President Obama has actively worked to forward radical Islam. According to her, the president has gone so far as to switch sides on the war on terror. According to Lopez, the charges she is making are what many in Congress are thinking but daren’t say out loud.
The Examiner reported that Lopez comes well qualified to make such allegations, as she has occupied many senior positions during her career with the CIA. Among other jobs, Lopez is the Vice President for Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy and a Senior Fellow at The Clarion Project, the London Center for Policy Research, and the Canadian Meighen Institute. She is also a member of the Citizens Commission on Benghazi and has a lot of experience when it comes to the Middle East and the war on Islamist terror.
According to Lopez, the global war on terror, spearheaded by America under George Bush, is more serious than just fighting terror itself. As Lopez told World Net Daily, it was actually an effort to “stay free of Shariah,” — until Obama got involved, that is.
Lopez asks why Obama decided to side with such terror organizations as The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as well as its affiliates in other parts of the Middle East. Lopez suggested that the Brotherhood itself has very much infiltrated the ranks of the Obama administration as well as other branches of the federal government.
For example, the appointment of Mohamed Elibiary, a senior member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council, who supports some kind of American partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Elibiary didn’t help himself when he decided to let the cat out the bag recently, tweeting that a “Caliphate,” or fundamental Muslim state, was inevitable in the future and compared it to the European Union.
Accordingly, claims Lopez, Obama has a similar agenda to the late Osama Bin Laden in that he also wants “to remove American power and influence, including military forces, from Islamic lands.”
In the wake of the recent brutal beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS, Lopez said the U.S. needs a long-term strategy in order to deal with the ISIS threat.
According to her, President Obama has done little to fight the threat that the U.S. and Europe face at the hands of ISIS. (Source)
Fethullah Gulen is a Turkish Islamic scholar of the thoroughly jihadist Sufi Ottoman tradition with a controversial history and many followers and admirers in both the Islamic and Western worlds. He is known as the spiritual leader of an Islamic socio-political movement that now spans the globe with a network of some 1,500 schools, including universities, in more than 120 countries including the U.S. This monograph offers readers a comprehensive overview of the reclusive figure at the center of this disturbing global enterprise, his philosophy, role in Turkish society, place in the American educational system, and what that growing influence portends for U.S. students and society.
2016 Abridged version: Ever since 9/11, it has been a central tenet of America’s national security establishment that the threat of jihadist terrorism and the proper way of contending with that danger have nothing to do with Islam – except to the extent al Qaeda (or, more recently, the Islamic State) “perverts” or “hijacks” that religion.
But what if this characterization of the problem we continue to face fifteen years on is simply and utterly wrong? What if there actually is a direct tie between the totalitarian doctrine that the authorities of Islam call “sharia” and the jihad (or holy war) it demands of adherents, some of which is manifested as terrifying violence?
What if, in addition, jihadists engage in pre-violent – and, in some ways, far more insidious – efforts to accomplish the same goal: the supremacy of sharia worldwide under a caliph?
These questions were the focus of an intensive six-month study by a remarkable group of highly accomplished civilian and military national security professionals. Notable among its members were: former Director of Central Intelligence R. James Woolsey, former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Lieutenant General Harry “Ed” Soyster, former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew C. McCarthy.
First published in December 2010, Sharia: The Threat to America documents a profoundly troubling reality. The Obama administration and its immediate predecessors under both political parties, along with many state and local governments, have been blind – in some cases willfully and in every case perilously so – to the harsh truth about: the nature of the enemy we confront; what actually animates him; the progress he is making towards achieving our destruction; and what we need to do to prevent his success.
This situation is dangerous in the extreme to our Constitution, freedoms, form of government and security. It must not be allowed to persist.
The Team B II report has made a vital contribution to the urgently needed national debate about the true wellspring of terrorism and the other manifestations of Islamic supremacism: sharia. The findings of this study are as compelling as they are authoritative.
This volume offers an abridged version of Sharia: The Threat to America featuring just its Executive Summary, Key Findings and Key Tenets of Sharia, thereby making accessible to the casual reader the most important concepts and findings of the original volume. We hope this introductory material will, however, spur your interest in digging deeper into the subject by reading the Team B II report in its entirety.
