Turkey, Iran Threaten to Overwhelm West with Refugees

Senior Iranian and Turkish officials have explicitly threatened to overwhelm Europe with new waves of Middle Eastern refugees if their demands aren’t met. To these Islamist republics, Muslim refugees are weapons of jihad, not victims. Iranian officials are also implying that they will build nuclear weapons or at least approach nuclear “break-out” capability as quickly as possible if the nuclear deal ends. As reported by Abdullah Bozkurt, president of the Stockholm Center for Freedom and author of Turkey Interrupted, the Turkish Interior Minister has threatened to escalate the refugee crisis to the point where German Chancellor Angela Merkel is forced…

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."

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…

Support for Muslim Brotherhood Terror Designation Bill Grows

The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act now has about 60 members of Congress supporting it. Although support is growing, the number of cosponsors is far less than what it was for the last version of the bill.

Information on who is currently supporting the legislation is at the bottom of this article.

5 Points About New National Security Adviser Gen. McMaster

President Trump has chosen General H.R. McMaster as the national security adviser and there’s plenty to be happy about. Below are five points to consider with his choice. General McMaster is known for winning the most difficult of battles. As explained in this lengthy New Yorker article from 2006, he performed an amazing turnaround in the city of Tal Afar in Iraq.

2 Hezbollah Terrorists Arrested for Preparing Attack on U.S., including NY

6/10/2017 The pace of jihadist activity has been so intense lately that an incredibly important story has been barely reported on: Two terrorists belonging to Hezbollah, a puppet of the Iranian and Syrian regimes, have been arrested for planning attacks on the U.S., with one scouting potential targets in New York including JFK International Airport. And both are citizens who entered, exited and re-entered the U.S. Although the Iranian and Syrian regimes regularly organize terrorist attacks through its Hezbollah proxy, the plotting of attacks on U.S. soil and on Americans overseas is very significant (but not unprecedented).  The two arrested terrorists are Ali Kourani of the Bronx, New…
