Islamist Infiltration of American Universities

Islamist Infiltration of American Universities

Ryan Mauro is the national security analyst and Shillman Fellow for the Clarion Project. This article was written with the assistance of Campus Watch, a project of the Middle East Forum. In 1988, an FBI source inside the Muslim Brotherhood revealed that the Islamist group's proxies in America had a six-phase plan to "institute the Islamic Revolution in the United States." [1]  Among these front groups was The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a think tank committed to the “Islamization of knowledge.”[2] This ideology, as Professor Vali Nasr writes, entails the subordination of scientific inquiry to “the mere implementation of…

American Day of Reckoning for Muslim Brotherhood?

American Day of Reckoning for Muslim Brotherhood?

The Muslim Brotherhood’s sigh of relief after being rescued by Secretary of State Tillerson and National Security Adviser McMaster has been replaced by a sweaty panic. With Tillerson out and Pompeo in and McMaster’s days numbered, it is now probable that the Muslim Brotherhood will finally be designated by the State Department as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, paving the way for its infrastructure in America to begin being dismantled. Groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood network like the Jamaat-e-Islami and Jamaat ul-Fuqra are likely to see a similar fate. President Trump’s desire to pressure Pakistan and more closely ally with…

Jihadi Cult Member Files to Run for Congress

A member of Muslims of the Americas (MOA), an Islamist hate group that cultishly follows a jihadist cleric in Pakistan, is running for Congress in Alaska. He is the second member of MOA to announce a congressional run this year, following Tahirah Amatul-Wadud in Massachusetts. In 2016, Gregory “Shoaib” Jones was a delegate for Senator Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention and ran for the Alaska state House in District 8. His deep involvement with MOA was exposed by the Clarion Project at the time, triggering a statewide controversy. Now, Jones is running for Congress and styling himself as…

ISIS Claims Vegas: At What Price?

The Islamic State (ISIS) is "quadrupling down" on its claim of responsibility for the Las Vegas massacre by Stephen Paddock, claiming he converted to Islam months ago. There is no evidence to substantiate their claim at this point and, if ISIS is lying, then at least something good can come from this horrible atrocity by using the lie to blast away at ISIS’ credibility. Rukmini Callimachi, a New York Times correspondent covering ISIS, tracked how ISIS reiterated its claims of responsibility with at least two comments on its Amaq News Agency propaganda outlet. It started referring to him as “Abu…

Gov’t Confirms US Jihadi Cult Under Investigation

Gov’t Confirms US Jihadi Cult Under Investigation

A U.S. government agency confirmed in a letter to the Clarion Project that an investigation into a terror-linked Islamist cult named Muslims of America (MOA) is ongoing. The group is known for its “Islamic villages” in North America, with its “Islamberg” headquarters receiving the most attention. The October 19 letter from the Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) states that 10 documents from a previous investigation into MOA must be withheld because “the investigation related to the documents that were referred is still open.” The Justice Department says that releasing the information could interfere with law…

NY Attack Confirms ISIS Still ‘Losers’

A Bangladeshi terrorist inspired by the Islamic State (ISIS) detonated a bomb, presumably prematurely, by the Port Authority bus terminal in New York City yesterday. But, make no mistake about it: He’s a loser. ISIS is still a bunch of losers. And if ISIS interprets victory as a sign of Allah’s endorsement, then they should be saying the Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag right about now. Yet, every terrorist attack—including one with a faulty device and likely premature explosion—is somewhat of a success for ISIS and like-minded jihadists because of how the media covers the drama. The media…

Cleric Warned Clarion of Bangladeshi Extremists in NY

Cleric Warned Clarion of Bangladeshi Extremists in NY

The attempted suicide bombing at the Port Authority in New York by a Bangladeshi ISIS supporter dominated the media last week, but we can’t say we weren’t warned. All the way back in 2012, a cleric in New York from Bangladesh warned the Clarion Project about the emerging threat in New York from Bangladeshi Islamists. Unsurprisingly, the Port Authority attacker and his family members attended radical mosques, the kind that the Bangladeshi imam warned us about. Imam Qazi Qayyoom, a self-described “moderate and liberal Sufi-Sunni imam” who leads the Muhammadi Center in Jackson Heights of New York, first came to…

Fuqra Member Announces Run for Congress

The newest Democratic congressional candidate in Massachusetts, Tahirah Amatul-Wadud, is a prominent official of not one but two Islamist groups: Jamaat ul-Fuqra and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Jamaat Ul-Fuqra, which now goes by the name of Muslims of America (MOA), is a jihadi cult that is currently under federal investigation. Amatul-Wadud has long been an advocate for Fuqra and serves as the group's “general counsel.” To find out more about this jihadi group, you can go to the website FuqraFiles.com, Clarion Project’s central database of information about this extremist group. CAIR has been identified by the Justice Department…

Secretary of Defense Mattis: What’s With the Flip-Flops?

Also read:  Has Trump Kept His Word on Radical Islam? The Nikki Haley Report Card   When President Trump chose Marine Corps General Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis as his Secretary of Defense, the cheers could be heard from the moon. There was bipartisan praise; social media accounts lit up with his badass quotes and he gave foes of Islamism and Iran plenty to cheer about. Since then, Mattis’ record has been mixed. At times, we’re left wondering if President Trump accidentally appointed a alien version of Mattis.   Islamism In 2015, Mattis said to Congress, “The fundamental question I believe…

U.S. Group Connected to Terrorists in Kashmir

The U.S. sanctioned the leader of an Islamist terrorist group in Kashmir named Hizbul Mujahideen late last month. The move targets an ideological ally of the U.S.-based Muslims of America organization (MOA), a cultish group known for its “Islamic villages” like Islamberg that is expressing support for the Kashmir terrorist group. On June 26, the State Department blacklisted Mohammad Yusuf Shah (commonly known as Syed Salahuddin), the leader of the Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist group that fights in Kashmir against India and operates in Pakistan with backing from the Pakistani government. Pakistan condemned the U.S. action. Hizbul Mujahideen is the largest…
