Mapping Shari'a

The magazine Insight is reporting on an effort to identify mosques in America which are promoting radical Islam, specifically the establishment of shari'a law and the imposition of Islam on the nation:

“Our initial investigation has concluded there are between 400 to 500 radical Islamic centers in the U.S.,” said David Gaubatz, the director of counterintelligence and counterterrorism for the Society of Americans for National Existence. “In those places, they preach an extreme version of Islam that says America and the West is the enemy. They espouse violence, hatred and the need for terrorism.”

Gaubatz is a former senior U.S. intelligence official, who now works for the Mapping Shari’a in America Project (www.mappingsharia.com), which is supported by SANE, a national non-profit group devoted to investigating the 2,300 Islamic centers in the U.S. for extremist activity.“...

Gaubatz maintains that he and his team of field workers at the Mapping Shari’a in America Project are not only focusing on major metropolitan areas. Although there is plenty of Islamist activity in cities such as Detroit, Dearborn, Michigan and Washington, he says radical Muslims are also establishing education and religious centers in small towns.

“They’re branching out and teaching the Jihadist ideology in small towns across America, especially in rural areas in places like Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina,” Gaubatz said.

I learned about this on a blog entry which expresses hope that the mapping project will take a look at the Islamic Center of Tulsa, given its ties to national Wahhabi organizations and its treatment of Jamal Miftah, who was angrily confronted and banned for a time from the Islamic Center of Tulsa's mosque after publishing an op-ed critical of those who commit terrorist acts in the name of Islam. Mosque leaders were especially upset with Miftah because he called attention to the fact that some American mosques had been involved in supporting terrorism.

That same blog entry has an interesting item about the struggle for control of a Trenton, N. J., mosque. The mosque was founded in 1981 as a place of prayer for all Muslims, regardless of their sect, and preaching of the Friday sermon was rotated. Now a group aligned with Salafism has gained control, and the mosque's founders are trying to regain control.

The Saudi Royal family Wahhabi'ist funding of thousands of mosques and madrassas throughout the world with their Oil Billions help incubate millions of future Jihadists. Our enemy is a twisted, virulent, evil Theology; NOT Terrorism.

Terrorism is a mere tactic effectively practiced by our Islamist enemies.

If you review the four principal Islamist threats against the U.S., you'll see they are:

1) Wahhabism (a.k.a. Salafism)
2) Al Queda
3) Muslim Brotherhood
4) Shi'ite Khomeinists in Iran

Poor old Saddam and his Baathist' Party was a SECULAR-oriented Arab Nationalist political party, and very unfriendly to Al Queda. We toppled Saddam alright, but then blundered by replacing him with a Shi'ite dominated Iranian directed Proxy Government.

Many of the formerly exiled Shi'ite leaders that we brought into the new Iraqi government spent so many years in exile in Iran that they married Iranian women, speak Farsi, and are close allies of the Khomeinists.

Thanks to clueless President, George "Herbert Hoover" W. Bush and his Neo-Con advisors, Iraq has become an Al Queda safe haven, a transit point for infiltration into the West, a training ground for Al Queda Jihadists with LIVE U.S. military targets instead of paper targets, and a direct battefront against Western Civilization.

Oh, and did I mention he managed to introduce perpetual turmoil into World Oil Markets, driving up the price of oil during his regime to an average of over $60.00 per barrel.

Our "friends" the Saudis and Exxon/Mobil/Conoco/Phillips/BP/Texaco/Chevron are DEFINITELY his biggest fans.

We get the privilege of PAYING them to extol the virtues of Jihad.

Nice Going, George!
