Stephen Coughlin is warning us...Is anyone listening? Who is Coughlin you ask!

Stephen Coughlin is warning us...Is anyone listening? Who is Coughlin you ask!

Stephen Coughlin a leading national security advisor and Islamic law expert explains how and why America is losing to jihadists in his new book: "Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of the Jihad," On page #12 Coughlin writes, "I had entered the Intelligence Directorate adhering to the traditional methods of analysis. Soon, however, I discovered that within the division there seemed to be a preference for political correctness over accuracy and for models that were generated not by what the enemy said he was, but on what academics and "cultural advisors" said the enemy needed to be, based on contrived social science theories."
It seemed the enemy was aware of this as well. Forces hostile to the United States in the War on Terror appeared to have successfully calculated that they could win the war by convincing our national security leaders of the immorality of studying and knowing the enemy." (snip)

Unindicted co-conspirator

Would someone please explain what that term means? Just on the face of it, it sounds like "not enough evidence to even accuse, much less convict." I understand that CAIR was born out of the MB and I understand open acceptance of CAIR is dangerous but I have problems getting all twisted up about that particular status.

 

The power of Influence, Coercion, and subsequent an Islamization via Sharia

Submitted by DWSC, Jan 7, 2013 22:48

Now that Al-Jazeera bought over CURRENT Media in NY, there could be a new dawn on how some fundamentalists, whether from CAIR or another Islamic NGO can propagate their doctrines.

Most news media will be neutral and current. But some content (gradually) may be slanting towards stealthy Islamization. Islamic advocacy tends to look sheepish, harmless, nonchalant and perhaps agreeing to American freedom but they can and will cajole and use politicians, the judiciary and financial influence to initially infiltrate with Shari'a policies and administration.

Later, when there are many Muslims becoming US citizens or born American Muslims, they will advocate for more involvement and power. And then, suddenly, you have an Islamic organization in the US Gov. This is dangerous.

You need to be aware of this because there are a number of countries which used to be secular and because of these Muslims they turn a country from secular to wanting Islam to be recognized as one of the main religions.

I was not aware of anything until I found out some of the Honor killings in the US and Europe.

The only way to thwart this is to make the Gov aware of the Shari'a and Islamization implications. There is nothing wrong with Islam per se, its just that their rules and administration are archaic and affecting contemporary liberties.

Many human rights organizations do acknowledge that the Shari'a rules and laws are problems but they stopped short on criticizing Islam because they do not want to take sides on religious issues and implications.

Do not allow Muslims to take this upper hand, however, they can practice their religion freely without affecting Muslims who want to apostate, intermarry, own property and Muslims involved in criminal laws.

I am not an American but attended a tertiary institution in the US in my late teens and early 20s in the 80s. However, I am a nationality of a country which used to pronounce itself as secular and in the late 20th and 21st C the ruling Gov decided to recognize the country as an Islamic country - they also amended the Constitution to reflect as such.

The country does look adhering to modern and contemporary needs and understanding but that's on the surface. Below the surface, there are numerous problems facing minorities and Muslims who want to either apostate, convert to another religion or intermarry. Civil laws are not applicable to Islamic laws in my country because the Highest Court and the (amended) Constitution do not want such interference in Islam.

Now, US is under a Democrat Gov and perhaps the future looks like it as well. The Obama Administration needs to be highly aware and even though they droning out terrorists in South Asia and the Middle East, they need to thoroughly understand the implications how Muslims fund their cause.

A Muslim has to assist another Muslim and that's a Jihad. Charity in itself is a Jihad and the only way to stop Jihad is to stop Charities. It does not matter what sort of charity it is - all charities despite their cause will fund for their Islamic cause. Charity is one of the pillars of Islam.

I do not wish to brag on further here but after knowing the various Honor killings and the attempted killing of Rifqa Bary, I need to say something and with that I thank you for letting me highlight some of my concerns to you. I am also deeply proud that some in the US Gov is actually pursuing these issues.

A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

CAIR is a Trojan Horse of the highest order! Through their various fund raising and propaganda back channels they ultimately attempt to legitimize Hamas in the USA without using the name of that terrorist organization. FBI policy is absolutely correct to bar communication with CAIR outside of a criminal investigation.

The DoJ is also correct to designate CAIR an unindicted conspirator in the successful 2008 prosecution of several U.S.-based Muslims for smuggling funds to the Hamas terror group. The problem is they should not be "unindicted."

For the B.O. administration to include this outfit in its outreach to the American Muslim community as a partner in the White House's new plan to curb home-grown Islamic extremism would be an absolute outrage. And, would perfectly demonstrate the near total incompetence of the B.O. administration to date.

Where are the CD's

It would be nice if IPT did an FOI on the CD's mentioned in the letter from USDOJ to Rep. Myrick. Those should be posted here as additional supporting evidence.
