Exclamation It’s time to ditch the entire “Countering Violent Extremism” strategy

It’s time to ditch the entire “Countering Violent Extremism” strategy

Last week, Senator Ted Cruz’s hearings graphically revealed the true extent of the Obama administration’s politically correct denial and willful ignorance concerning the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat and the ongoing attempts to assert Sharia principles and practices over those of American law and culture. DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson in particular ( demonstrated a contemptuous indifference to the importance of identifying the enemy ideology properly. Meanwhile, the role of Muslim Brotherhood-allied groups in influencing the Obama administration and guiding its hamstringing and deforming our response to the jihad threat has never yet been adequately addressed. The worst manifestation of this baneful influence is the administration’s “Countering Violent Extremism” policy, which pretends that “right-wingers” are as much or more of a terror threat than Islamic jihadis — and generally ignores the existence of Islamic jihad altogether.

But tomorrow Reps. Kevin McCarthy and Mike McCaul plan to make things even worse. They’re pushing for a rule to bring up a bill that will give Jeh Johnson an Assistant Secretary whose job will be to “partner” with “communities” against “radical Islamist terrorism” — a slightly more accurate and truthful phrase than “violent extremism,” but unfortunately, not one that heralds a positive change: this new Assistant Secretary’s office will have at least a $10 million budget for this “partnering,” and its “partners” will almost certainly be Muslim Brotherhood-linked and Hamas-linked groups such as the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Enough is enough. Americans are fed up with the Obama administration’s denial, willful ignorance, and pandering to Islamic supremacist groups. It’s time to repudiate the entire “Countering Violent Extremism” and call Islamic jihad what it is: Islamic jihad.

McCarthy and McCaul’s travesty has to be stopped. In its place, we need legislation that will bar individuals or groups linked with Hamas and/or the Muslim Brotherhood, and that were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial, from ever “partnering” with U.S. government organizations in any way, and from receiving federal grants for countering “radical Islamic terrorism,” “violent extremism,” or anything else.

And beyond that, we must put an end to the “Countering Violent Extremism” approach, and devise one for “Countering Jihad.” The key premises of the “Countering Violent Extremism” strategy — that Islam is a religion of peace that has nothing to do with “violent extremism”; that those who engage in violence in its name are twisting and hijacking its peaceful tenets; that jihad is an interior spiritual struggle that has nothing to do with violence; that mosques are entirely benign places of worship, akin to churches and synagogues, and that it would be “Islamophobic” to subject them to surveillance; that intelligence and law enforcement agents must work to win the “trust” of Muslim communities, rather than the other way around; and that “right-wing extremists” are more of a threat than violent (and stealth) jihadists — must be decisively and explicitly rejected.

What should be put in its place? Reality. The U.S. government should recognize that there are aspects of Islamic law (Sharia) that are directly contradictory to Constitutional freedoms and protections, and make it clear that preaching and spreading those aspects of Islamic law in the U.S. will be regarded as sedition. It must recognize the ideology of the jihadis as rooted in the Qur’an and Sunnah, and require U.S. mosques and Islamic schools to back up their pro-forma condemnations of jihad terror with genuine action, including honest and inspectable programs teaching against the ISIS/al-Qaeda understanding of Islam. Mosques must be monitored to ensure that sedition, violence, and hatred of unbelievers is not being preached. The government must also recognize that jihad and Islamic supremacism are global, and have no counterpart among returning veterans, Tea Party activists, etc.

The time is now. Please contact your Congressmen and exhort them to repudiate the McCarthy/McCaul initiative, and the entire “Countering Violent Extremism” superstructure. Obama’s fantasy-based policies are costing lives. One death for political correctness was one too many, and there have been many more than one. It is time to call a halt to this suicidal nonsense once and for all.
O Israel
The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
