Seeing Information Warfare in the Midst of Media Coverage of Attacks

Last night, a Muslim yelling “Allah u Akbar” drove a truck into a crowd at Bastille Day celebrations (July 14th) in Nice, France killing nearly 80 people and wounding many more.

The American media responded in lock-step, especially Fox News’ Megan Kelly, who marched suit-wearing jihadis like Maajid Nawaz of the Quilliam Foundation forward to explain why the attack was not representative of “true Islam” and that the only path forward is for America and its leaders to work with “real Muslims” if we are to find “solutions” to this “problem.”

Note:  Suit-wearing jihadis never talk about utterly defeating our enemies.

The enemy is engaging us in the information battlespace and we do not even know it.

Quilliam Foundation, based in England, is yet another Islamic organization which propagates all sorts of information about the “terrorism” threat the West faces, but serves the enemy strategy by ensuring Western leaders never associate the events of Nice, Paris, Orlando, San Bernadino, Boston, Ft. Hood, et al, with Islam.

Maajid Nawaz is a self-professed “former fundamentalist Muslim” who is now helping “educate” all of us on “true Islam” and the difference between ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the rest of the Muslim community.

Quilliam is an enemy propaganda organization that keeps those who listen to it from ever identifying the threat.  If you cannot identify the threat, you cannot target the threat.  If you cannot target the threat, you cannot defeat it.

Megan Kelly asked Maajid Nawaz about France banning the “face-veil” to wit Nawaz responded with:

“It’s not gone over well among those who believe – and there’s a austere fundamentalist strand within Islam, a Salafist strand within Islam, mainly found in Saudi Arabia – who believe women are obliged within the religion to cover their faces.  I must emphasize that’s a strand within Islam, but the jihadists subscribe to that strand.”

Lets unpack this, because to the untrained ear, this might sound reasonable.

First, the word “fundamentalist” is a word used in the West to describe a group of American Christians from the late 19th and early 20th century.  Islamic propagandists sew it into the discussion because they know most non-Muslims will equate the comparison inside Christianity to the same – yet nonexistent relationship – within Islam.

Secondly, there is nowhere in Islam – not at the first grade level in U.S. or European Islamic schools, nor at the doctrinal level such as Al Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt – that does not teach it is the duty of Muslims to wage jihad when they have the strength and ability to do so until the entire world is under Islamic rule.

While certain nations ensure sharia (Islamic Law) is enforced more than others, that does not change what the law says nor does it change the authority of sharia in the life of a Muslim.

Maajid Nawaz knows this, and is lying about it.

The jihadists “subscribe to the strand” of Islam that teaches jihad and subjugating women because it is the only version of Islam that exists on the planet.

Mr. Nawaz, Where is the Mystical Peaceful Version of Islam Taught?

Megan Kelly asked Mr. Nawaz, “How do we fight the ideology?”

Nawaz responded with, “They will find any excuse to attack anywhere, but they do look for these excuses of course…We have to galvanize civil society to push back against this ideology so that people in the long term aren’t recruited and don’t join this phenomenon.  That requires recognizing it, naming it – ‘Islamist extremism’ – and then putting forth a strategy that can isolate it from Islam as a religion, and then start utilizing Muslim and non-Muslim communities to stand together to push back against it as we have done as we’ve done against racism in the West as we’ve done with homophobia and anti-Semitism.”

And there the other shoe drops.  According the Quilliam Foundation…

  1. America must separate what the jihadis are doing from true Islam (an impossibility)
  2. Then we must work with the “good” Muslims, like all of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda (Abdurahman Alamoudi for instance), and Hamas (CAIR) leaders for instance
  3. The non-Muslims (targets of the jihadis) must work together with the Jihadis to end Islamophobia (a operational term created by the Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT (International Institute of Islamic Thought) to put the West back on their heals just like “homophobia” did)

Funny how this sounds just like the rest of the jihadi network’s advice to us since 9/11, and since 9/11, the jihadi problem has become more severe, not lessened, indicating this strategy of relying on the Muslim community to solve this problem is a complete failure.

The Global Islamic Movement is fighting a war primarily in the Information Battlespace.  Information warfare is propaganda, subversion, political warfare, influence operations, recruitments, espionage, counterintelligence, and much more.

Suit-wearing jihadis are telling us stories (read: “LIES”) to get us to do everything but take a hard look at Islam and Sharia.

  1. Thank you, very well said and well put. I will post this page address to my facebook. All of us NEED to share this information with others in order to foil their plans for further destruction in America and abroad.

  2. This is such a brilliant examination of a very sophisticated Taqiyya and how it operates in jihad.
    Calling these people “suit-wearing jihadists” nails it. I would also include Zudhi Jasser and a Pakistani woman Dr. Qantad (freqently on Fox news). I view these muslim ‘reformers’ as snakes. If they REALLY wanted reform they should be speaking to muslims. How can this so-called reform occur when your audience are infidels. They are the vipers of islam. Slithering among an America that is in a collective coma. I think there goals are two-fold. First to achieve submission of Americans to Sharia/blasphemy laws that do
    not allow infidels to criticize or analyze islam.
    Because Americans refuse to identify “the Beast” they are unknowingly collaborating with eliminating free speech. Their second goal is to get nice and genuinely kind Americans into making donations to their tax exempt MB front organizations.
    Thank you so much for teaching more about the intricacies of jihad.

    • I could not agree with you more about Jasser. If he lived based on what he claims he is for and against, it would be IMPOSSIBLE for him to be Muslim. He has to ignore over half of the Islamic Trilogy to really believe what he speaks about Islam to the dhimmie infidel. “Snake” just BEGINS to suggest his role as a Muslim.

  3. This is an excellent summary of the blatant subversion of our liberties being foisted upon the West by “well intentioned” elected and nominated idiots. There will come a time when the free people of the world, lead by the west, we rise up and eradicate this scourge of islam from our borders.

  4. […] recommended reading the article recently re-published at his website, UnderstandingTheThreat.com, in which he asks, “Where is the mystical, peaceful version of Islam […]

  5. I share your page and tell people about your book. After listening to you and the others for 3 hours, it was obvious how little we the people are being told. Every community needs to hear your message and the sooner the better!! Thank you for your loyalty and God Bless each one of you!

  8. OPINION;

    Lest we forget, In addition to Bill O’Reilly at FOX (as expected), it was Megan Kelly, Greta Van Susteren and Laura Ingraham, on the distaff side there, whose outrageous reporting on behalf of Islam pinned an extant fatwa target on the back of American Freedom Defense Initiative president Pamela Geller i.e. by blaming her for the ISIL sponsored Islamist terrorist attack she and others narrowly survived at 1850hrs on 03 May 2015 (thanks to the FBI & local law-enforcement entities.) The “First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit” (cartoon contest) she had arranged. was in progress inside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland , Texas when the shooting began.

    Furthermore, as the disingenuous newsreader in question obviously knows, the Quilliam Foundation’s staff of Islamic liars is but another contingent of a similarly scripted army of subversives who seek our destruction, a tactic of which is to run out the clock with vacuous chatter.
