On Wednesday February 11th, the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. hosted the first ever “Defeat Jihad Summit” with leaders represented from across the world discussing the threat of Islamic Jihadis and how to build a strategy for victory. This has never been done since the jihadis in Iran declared war against us in 1979.
Participating in this event were Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Senator Ted Cruz, Representative Steven King, Representative Mike Pompeo (Kansas), Representative Scott Perry (Pennsylvania), Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (U.S. Navy, Ret.), Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin (U.S. Army, Ret.), former Representative Pete Hoekstra, Leading 9/11 family member Deborah Burlingame, Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders, Danish free speech advocate Lars Hedegaard, Britain’s Lord Malcolm Pearson, Israeli Ambassador Yoram Ettinger, Claremont President Brian Kennedy, former Muslim Nonie Darwish, Muslim reformer Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, Australian pastor Mark Durie, Andrew McCarthy (author and former Chief CT Prosecutor, NY), the Honorable Joseph Schmitz (Inspector General, Department of Defense, Bush Administration), Judge Jeanine Pirro, human rights attorney Deborah Weiss, author/journalist Diana West, Dr. Charles Jacobs (Executive Director, Americans for Peace and Tolerance), national security expert and CSP Fellow J. Michael Waller, CSP Fellow and strategic analyst Major Stephen Coughlin (US Army, reserves), Rabbi Jonathan Hausman, retired CIA case officer Clare Lopez, and leadership of the Center for Security Policy.
Understanding the Threat Founder John Guandolo participated in this program as well.
The focus of the program was to clearly identify the enemy the United States and the West is facing, and begin a discussion on building long-term solutions to defeating the Islamic Movement in all its forms. The focus is total victory.
In summation, the threat we face is a global Islamic Movement whose doctrine is Sharia (Islamic Law). Now subverting governments worldwide, conquering nations/regions across the globe, and barbarically killing hundreds of thousands of human beings on several continents, this massive threat continues to be minimized and given little attention by the current U.S. administration.
While the threat of China, Russia, the Progressive Movement, and others threaten our way of life, the Global Islamic Movement is at the forefront because it is conquering nations and barbarically killing men, women, and children, and literally acting as the agent of evil in the world today.
Truth, courage, faith and determination are watchwords if victory in this war is to be had. The light of liberty and the survival of Western civilization depend on citizens of free nations coming to grips with the fact we are at war – a war we must win if our children and grand children are to enjoy the fruits and blessings of liberty as we have.
