Since 9/11/01 there have been 72 jihadi attacks in 24 states in America, in which 160 people have been killed and 502 wounded.*
Texas leads the nation with the most jihadi attacks since 9/11/01 with nine (9).
Texas also has a massive jihadi infrastructure to support and prepare for future attacks.
Evidence from the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history – US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), Northern District of Texas (Dallas) in 2008 – reveals there is a massive network of Islamic organizations around the United States, and specifically in Texas, supporting terrorist operations.
These organizations are primarily led by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, which should be designated a terrorist organization.
The Holy Land Foundation (HLF), located in Richardson, Texas, was convicted of providing over $12 million dollars to the terrorist group Hamas overseas, and at the time it was indicted in 2001 HLF was the largest Islamic charity in America.
This is not surprising since Dallas, Texas is the #2 hub for Hamas operations in the United States, second only to Chicago, Illinois.
There are numerous examples of terrorist attacks across the United States supported by the Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadi network. Here are a couple examples from Texas:
The Islamic jihadi Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed 14 people and wounded 32 others at Fort Hood, Texas in November 2009 after recently arriving (July 2009) from working at Walter Reed Medical Center (Washington, DC) where he attended the Muslim Brotherhood’s Dar al Hijra Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia, and was under the tutelage of Al Qaeda leader Anwar al Awlaki.
The attack on a free speech event in Garland, Texas on May 3, 2015 was launched by two Islamic jihadis out of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Community Center of Phoenix who were killed by an alert and skilled police officer.
This terrorist support network is significant across Texas. There are Muslim Students Associations (MSA) on every major college and university campus in Texas recruiting terrorists and providing mis-information to students about Islam. As a point of reference, Abdurahman Alamoudi, the former National MSA President, was an Al Qaeda financier who is now in federal prison.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has 20 subsidiary Islamic Societies across Texas, and the Muslim Brotherhood’s bank, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), owns properties all across Texas.
Both ISNA and NAIT were identified by the U.S. government in the US v HLF trial as being Muslim Brotherhood organizations who directly funded the designated Foreign Terrorist Organization Hamas.
Research conducted by UTT reveals the teachings at the mosques/Islamic centers in the major cities in Texas are in line with the teachings of Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. They call for war to be waged by muslims against the non-muslim population to overthrow of the U.S. government and establish an Islamic State (caliphate) under sharia (Islamic Law).
Materials supporting this revolutionary and seditious ideology has also been discovered by UTT in the muslim prayer room at the Taylor Chapel at Goodfellow Air Force base in San Angelo, Texas.
To top it all off, Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) – widely defended and supported by nearly every media outlet in Texas especially in the DFW and Austin areas – hosts “Muslim Day” at the Texas State Capital each year despite the fact they operate as a cover for a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. See CAIR is Hamas here.
- Texas has seen more jihadi attacks than any other state in America.
- The largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history was adjudicated in Dallas, Texas because the largest Islamic charity (a terrorist front organization for Hamas) was in Richardson, Texas – a suburb of Dallas-Fort Worth.
- Dallas, Texas is the second largest center for activity for the terrorist group Hamas in the United States.
It is time for the citizens of the great Republic of Texas to boldly speak truth about this massive and growing threat and join Understanding the Threat (UTT) in our work to take back Texas from this cancerous scourge in our communities.
*[Author’s note: UTT is not including the Las Vegas attack in the statistics for U.S. jihadi attacks. UTT believes, because evidence reveals, the Las Vegas attack was a jihadi attack in which 58 people were killed and 851 wounded.
