Why Does American Media Shill for Islam?

It is obvious that nearly all major media outlets in the United States defend Islam as a “religion of peace” which poses “no threat” to America or her people. Why?

Remember When Leaders in the West Knew Islam Was the Enemy of Free People?

Lepanto, Tours, Columbus, and Vetting in the U.S. Government

Sharia: Religious Guide or Foreign Law

Sharia is a legal system, not a religious guide.  Sharia is not ‘religious law’ or a ‘spiritual guide.’  It is real law.  Sharia is Islamic law adjudicated by Islamic jurists and Islamic legal scholars.

The Incomprehensible Argument

When U.S. federal courts side with a terrorist group (Hamas/CAIR) making a legal argument that muslims must be given the opportunity to abide by foreign law (sharia), it is dangerous and absurd.  When “freedom of religion” is sited as the reason, the argument becomes incomprehensible.

Propaganda is, by definition, intentionally used to manipulate and control, making it antithetical to liberty. The Islamic Movement uses its “Islamophobia” campaign as a hammer to impose the Islamic Law of Slander on the non-muslim world.  Slander is legally defined in Islam as saying anything about Islam that muslims would “dislike,” and is a capital […]

Gubernatorial Candidate Speaks Truth About Muslim Brotherhood & Even Michigan GOP Cowers

Most patriotic Americans expect Democrats and members of the media to lash out against truth, facts, and reality, and stand with America’s enemies. It is much more disturbing when those calling themselves “conservatives” run and cower, leaving their own colleagues standing alone on the battlefield. Last week, Michigan State Senator Patrick Colbeck spoke from the […]

U.S. Islamic Schools Teaching What ISIS Teaches

Would it be a problem if ISIS jihadis were teaching in U.S. Islamic schools? If you answer “Yes” then why is it okay to have the same material ISIS teaches being taught in U.S. Islamic schools?

Is John Bolton the Man Who Will Dismantle the Islamic & Marxist Counter-States in America?

How can an American citizen know Ambassador John Bolton, President Trump’s new National Security Advisor, is a good choice for the position? Because the Marxists are losing their minds. In fact, John Bolton brings to the table an understanding of a wide variety of threats with strategies to take the fight to the enemy. UTT’s […]

The Transformation of the FBI & What Citizens Can Do

What happened to the FBI and what can citizens do when those charged with protecting them demonstrate ignorance of clear and present dangers to their communities?

Will the U.S. Follow Europe’s Suicidal Example?

Many people opine the serious issues Europe is having with Islamic populations will present themselves in the United States in the next 15 years or so.

When the Government Fails In Its Primary Duty, The People Will Defend Themselves

Written by John Guandolo, President/Founder of Understanding the Threat (UTT) 100% of Islamic Law (sharia) mandates warfare against non-muslims, and obliges stoning, crucifixion and beheading for certain crimes.  Islam’s prophet – a “beautiful pattern of conduct” for all muslims for all times – himself tortured, killed, took sex slaves, waged war on non-muslims, lied, and […]

How Badly is The U.S. Government Penetrated by Terrorists?

A reminder of the serious penetration of our system by suit-wearing jihadis.  Remember this is much more a counterintelligence and espionage problem than merely a “terrorism” issue.        President Clinton, VP Gore, & Governor GW Bush with Al Qaeda Financier Abdurahman Alamoudi   President George W. Bush speaking at the Washington Islamic Center […]

The OSCE and the International Assault on Free Speech

The war against the Islamic and Marxist Movements inside the United States is primarily a war of narratives.  As UTT continues to emphasize, the primary line of effort against a false narrative is to speak truth boldly using specifically defined language that is understood by all those on our side. At the international level, the […]

CAIR is Hamas Yet Media, Universities & SPLC Still Support Them

When  individuals and groups capitulate to terrorists like those at the Hamas organization Council on American Islamic Relations – CAIR – they provide ammunition for the terrorists to create multi-use propaganda.

UTT Identifies Threats & Strategizes for Victory

Understanding the Threat (UTT) stands apart in this war because it provides tools to law enforcement officers at the local and state level to identify and map out jihadis and jihadi organizations and then aggressively investigatipvely pursue them. UTT is the only organization in America doing this. In 2017, law enforcement leaders and prosecutors directly […]

2013: Robert Mueller Unaware Islamic Society of Boston Founded by Al Qaeda

by John Guandolo, President, UTT As UTT detailed last week in our article here, New York Deputy Commissioner John Miller made comments related to recent jihadi attacks in New York inconsistent with a factual understanding of Islam and sharia.

Another Jihadi Attack in NYC – Another Incoherent Response

Several weeks ago, a sharia-adherent muslim named Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov drove a truck into pedestrians in New York City killing 8 and wounding several others.

Islam’s “Perfect Example” Makes Torture, Murder, Sex Slaves, and Child Marriage Lawful

  “And thou (Mohammad) standest on an exalted standard of character.” Koran 68:4 “Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern of conduct for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.” Koran 33:21 Islam’s prophet, Mohammad, is considered in […]

MPAC’s Key Role in Defining the Language in This War

Even before the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) went to the White House under President Obama to purge training documents, the MB’s Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) made great strides to eliminate language from the U.S. National Security discussion that specifically identifies the enemy. 100% of our Islamic enemy states they are muslims waging jihad to establish […]

Will Saudi Arabia Lead Islamic Military Forces Against Jihadis or Us?

Sharia is always the filter through which the un-Islamic world must understand leaders of the Islamic world. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud opened the inaugural meeting of the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) –  made up of Defense Ministers from 41 muslim countries – on Sunday November 26. 2017. […]

The Road to Victory Begins with Speaking Truth

As Americans become more aware the killings/attacks in Europe, the U.S. and elsewhere by muslims actually find their basis in Islamic doctrine, the more likely they are to resist the actions of the Islamic Movement. The Islamic Movement knows this. Non-muslims will know everything they need to know about sharia when it is fully imposed […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: U.S. Businesses Submit to Islam

When jihadis complain, they do it to elicit a response, specifically, the submission to Islam/sharia. Mattel has now joined other businesses submitting to Islam by producing a sharia-adherent muslim Barbie doll. Mattel stated:  “We are so excited to honor Ibtihaj Muhammad with a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll…Ibtihaj continues to inspire women and girls everywhere to break […]

President Trump Should Go With His Gut

By all accounts, President Trump’s gut instincts are far superior to the “knowledge” of his advisors when it comes to the Islamic threat. In deciding about Afghanistan, the President stated in his August 2017 speech:  “My original instinct was to pull out. And historically, I like following my instincts.” In the end, his generals convinced […]

Saudi Arabia Lies…Over & Over

In the last week, Saudi Arabia arrested many people in an effort to “curb corruption” in the Kingdom, and committed to vet violent hadiths  (reports) of Islam’s prophet to “counter extremism.” If you believe these are sincere efforts to “moderate” the Kingdom, UTT has ocean front property in Arizona to sell you.   “Saudi donors […]

Texas Massacre Motive? What Investigators Will Ignore

Motive for Killing Americans Still Clear – Islam/Sharia

The man who killed 8 people and wounded approximately 12 in New York City 2 days ago is a muslim.  He is a jihadi who yelled “Allah u akbar” – a requirement under sharia. From all of the muslims (Iranians) who stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979 to the 1983 bombing of the […]

US Leaders Again Fail to Protect Citizens – Muslim Kills 8 in NYC

Today in New York City, a muslim jihadi plowed a truck into people killing 8 and injuring approximately 11 others. He did not do it because he doesn’t have a good job or because he lacks education or because of Israel or because of the lack of McDonald’s in his home country. He did not […]

Hamas’ Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, VA (USA) The Koran says Islam’s prophet Mohammad is a “beautiful pattern of conduct” (33:21) and an “exalted standard of character” (68:4).

Jihadis All Want One Thing – Sharia Imposed on the World

The Impact of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Efforts on the Las Vegas Investigation

How bizarre and unprofessional can the investigation into the Las Vegas attack get? How has years of Muslim Brotherhood propaganda and its ability to shut down training on Islam inside the U.S. government impacted investigative efforts by the FBI and local/state law enforcement? News coverage on the event – the “deadliest mass shooting in U.S. […]

Terrorist Supporting Southern Poverty Law Center Cut Off by DoD

This past week it was confirmed DOD severed all ties with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), scrubbing SPLC training from DOD manuals.

Special Report: What is the Most Viable Assessment of the Las Vegas Attack?

  Five days after the largest shooting attack in American history, U.S. leaders are no closer to identifying the motive of the perpetrator of this tragedy.  Yet, our government assures us this is not connected to “international terrorism.” With regards to the current situation as it stands right now, the facts as we know them […]

UTT Assesses Las Vegas Attack As A Jihadi Operation

There has been a lot of speculation in both mainstream media and social media about Sunday night’s tragedy in Las Vegas, where, according to the latest from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, 516 people were injured and 59 people were murdered by Stephen Paddock. Before any real information about the shooter was put out […]

Collapse of CAIR-Supported Sheriff’s Effort to Discredit UTT

By John Andrews UTT National Board Chairman Several weeks ago, I alerted friends of Understanding the Threat about an attempt to discredit our organization and its president, John Guandolo, on the part of sharia-friendly elements in the Twin Cities, where civilization jihad is further advanced than anywhere else in the country.  Gratefully, that thrust has […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Where Does a Muslim Soldier’s Loyalty Lie?

“Fight and slay the unbelievers wherever you find them…”  Koran 9:5 NBC is reporting the Taliban targeted Secretary of Defense James Mattis in an attempt to kill him during his surprise visit to Kabul yesterday.  Taliban leaders credit Afghan security forces with tipping them off. With the number of attacks on U.S. forces by Afghani […]

Illogically Choosing Friends & Allies in This War

If the Bonnano crime family (mafia) initiated a turf war against the Gambino family in New York, does that mean the Gambino crime family is a friend to the New York Police Department? If the Islamic State publicly condemns the Muslim Brotherhood, does that mean the Muslim Brotherhood is a “friend” of the United States? […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: President Should Drop Pakistan as Ally

It is being reported that President Trump is considering dropping Pakistan as a U.S. “ally” due to their obvious support for “terrorism.” It’s about time.

On This September 11th UTT Calls on American Leaders to Do Their Duty

It has been 16 years since 19 jihadis from Saudi Arabia flew airplanes into the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and tried to reach the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. but failed because of the heroic efforts of American citizens. Since that day, America has fought and lost two wars […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: US Already Apologizing to the Enemy in Afghanistan – Again

At what point do American citizens call for our military generals to be tried for criminal negligence as well as Aiding and Abetting the enemy for continuing their grossly unprofessional conduct and failure to make the slightest effort to understand the enemy 16 years after 9/11? In February 2012, General John Allen apologized to muslims [...]

Southern Poverty Law Center Operates as a Terrorist Support Arm in the Counter-State

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a U.S. based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that claims to “battle racial and social injustice” in America, yet SPLC’s words and actions reveal it is a terrorist support organization which actively works to accelerate the Islamic and hard-left Counter-States in their goal of overthrowing the United States government. As […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: A Summer of Jihad in Europe

This summer has been a summer of jihad in Europe.  As European leaders surrender to Islam, Islam is attacking Europe.  When all of the attacks are seen in list form, it is hard to deny the West is at war. Here is a list of 2017 jihadi attacks in Europe from June 1 to today […]

How Can US Leaders NOT Know About Islam?

When Understanding the Threat (UTT) conducts its 3-day “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Network” two things are always true at the end of the course:  (1) the attendees tell us none of them – including FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force agents/officers – were aware of the information presented prior to attending the course, and (2) […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: US Government’s Failure to Address Domestic Threat

Summary The attacks of 9/11 were conducted against the U.S. homeland with support from the Islamic Movement inside the United States.  The U.S. government’s response to fight on battlefields overseas, while leaders of the U.S. Islamic Movement exclusively provided “advice” to our leaders, led to strategic defeats in Afghanistan and Iraq despite the fact the […]

U.S. Islamic Movement Enters Final Stage

The leading edge of the Islamic Movement’s Final Stage in the United States is upon us.  The violence is now beginning in earnest. One day in the future, history will record with great astonishment how military leaders, politicians on both sides of the aisle, intelligence professionals, and others were catastrophically unprofessional for 16 years after […]

Tonight (8/17/2017) at the South County Civic Center in Delray Beach, Florida, Muslim Brother (Jihadi) Bassem Alhalabi will speak on “Human Rights” in Islam.

Civilization Jihad at the Ground Level in Southern California

Speaking truth about the danger Islam poses to civilized society is improper social etiquette in many parts of America these days – especially among America’s elites. Yet a few dare to do it.  Understanding the Threat (UTT) certainly does. The folks at the Counter Jihad Coalition in Southern California are also unafraid to speak truth […]

Civilization Jihad, Propaganda, and Ignorance

This war of the Global Islamic Movement versus the Free World is primarily a war of narratives. One narrative says what ISIS, Al Qaeda and all of the other jihadi organizations are doing has nothing to do with Islam. The other side of this coin is called truth. As UTT has documented in articles here, […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Warnings of US Government Penetration Coming to Fruition

In 2009, Congresswoman Sue Myrick (Charlotte, NC) held a press conference with other members of Congress detailing the counterintelligence dangers of Islamic jihadi penetration in our government.  In the press conference Myrick highlighted the information contained in the book Muslim Mafia, much of which resulted from the efforts of UTT's Vice President Chris Gaubatz, who [...]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Will DOJ Prosecute CAIR/Hamas for FARA Violations?

The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) of 1938 requires all entities which act as “agents of foreign principals” to register with the U.S. government and are subject to oversight and restrictions.  FARA is critical to combat counterintelligence threats, and was created to thwart propagandists inside the United States. On Wednesday, July 26, 2017, a hearing […]

Threat to Homeland High – Negotiation Not the Solution

Famed terrorist Carlos the Jackal said:  “Only a coalition of Marxists and Islamists can destroy the United States.” In September 2015, UTT published a brief article entitled The Convergence of Threats which illuminates the marriage between the U.S. Islamic Movement and the hard-left Marxists.  Today, this marriage moves ever closer to is objective of overthrowing the U.S. […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: ISNA Was and Is a Jihadi Organization

If Muslims Are Honest About Jihad, They Think They’re Winning

   After 9/11/01, Americans were told Islam does not “stand for violence” and that Islam “rejects” violence, despite the fact the 19 hijackers were all muslims stating they killed nearly 3,000 Americans because it is a command from Allah. Then we heard the “concept of jihad” was a part of Islam, but it is a […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Linda Sarsour Has Always Been a Jihadi

Linda Sarsour has been a jihadi for a long time, so her recent comments calling for warfare/jihad against the President of the United States should not shock people.  What is shocking, however, is that so many do not understand how dangerous she is and that she is a well-used tool in the enemy’s strategic information […]

Jihad is Warfare Against Non-Muslims

“This religion [Islam] will destroy all other religions through Islamic jihad fighters.”  Jordanian/Palestinian school book (1998) “The word jihad is most often associated with the act of physically confronting evil and wrong-doing…if anyone dies in a Jihad they automatically go to Paradise.  The duty of muslim citizens is to be loyal to the Islamic State.” […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Contrary Ideas Always Meet Resistance

When one of America’s great unsung heroes, John C. Houbolt, put forth the idea to NASA the “Lunar Orbit Rendezvous” (LOR) was the best way to get men to the moon and return them safely to the earth, he was harshly criticized.  In a meeting full of fellow scientists, Max Faget – one of the […]

America at War: Let Us Reclaim Our Independence Day

Tomorrow – Tuesday – is July 4, 2017.  It is America’s anniversary of declaring its independence from tyranny and oppression. The first war America fought after the Revolutionary War was the war against the muslim states – the Barbary States.  Now, in 2017, America is again at war with Islam.  Unlike when President Thomas Jefferson […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: John Brennan Converted to Islam

On Tom Trento’s radio program in February 2013 , UTT’s President John Guandolo detailed  that former Director of Central Intelligence John Brennan publicly said the Islamic statement of faith (shahada) in the presence of government officials and intelligence agents from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Saudi Arabia while he was the CIA’s Station Chief […]

US Government’s Inward Focus Blinds It To The Outward Threat

“The duty of the muslim citizen is to be loyal to the Islamic State” What Islam is All About, most widely used text book in U.S. Islamic junior high schools Until the United States makes an affirmative decision to identify our enemy, know the enemy’s doctrine and strategy, and defeat the enemy, America will continue […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: No Wider Plot?

If a Special Forces soldier was captured in a foreign land with which America was at war, would our enemy consider him a “lone wolf” disconnected from any “wider plot” or larger army? On March 11, 2004, 10 bombs were detonated on four trains by Islamic jihadis in Madrid, Spain killing 191 people and injuring […]

What Are Muslims Taught About Non-Muslims?

“(Unbelievers/Non-Muslims) are the worst of all creatures.”  Koran 98:6 Why is it obligatory for muslims to lie to non-muslims?  Why is it obligatory for muslims to kill non-muslims who do not convert to Islam or submit to sharia in an Islamic State? The reason is simple.  Allah commanded his law (sharia) to be the law […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Are You Still Listening to the Imam?

Monday’s UTT article entitled “The Path to Victory Begins with Knowing the Threat” made one important point:  the threat America faces from the Global Islamic Movement has EVERYTHING to do with Islam. One more time:  it is a capital crime in Islam (sharia) for a muslim to teach another muslim anything about Islam that is incorrect […]

The Path to Victory Begins with Knowing the Threat

“Fight and slay the unbelievers wherever you find them, capture them and besiege them, lie in wait for them in each and every ambush.” Koran, chapter 9, verse 5 Since 9/11/01, Americans have been told by their leaders the problem the U.S. faces from “global terrorism” has nothing to do with Islam.  The threat, so […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Nurture Jihadis & Get Jihad

Jihadi is total warfare. The kinetic jihad is most effective when the target community is softened up before violence is brought upon them and then driven into the arms of the suit-wearing jihadis after an attack. On April 15, 2013 two muslims, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, remotely-detonated two bombs they placed at the finish line […]

Islam’s Conquest of America One Town at a Time

From Minneapolis (MN) to Hamtramck (MI) to Falls Church (VA) to Paterson (NJ) and many other towns and cities across the fifty states, the Islamic Movement is quietly conquering America. The federal government sleeps, many state governments – including those controlled by Republicans – do their best to accommodate muslims waging Civilization Jihad against America, […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Molly Norris Drew Mohammad – 7 Years Later She Is Still In Hiding

From all accounts, Molly Norris was a politically left-leaning cartoonist in Seattle who thought people just needed to lighten up a bit, and be able to freely express themselves, no matter what the topic. In 2010 Norris suggested a “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day.”  A few days later she received her first death threat from a Muslim. […]

Al Qaeda & ISIS are Correct About Islam

When the Caliph of the Islamic caliphate, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, says Islam requires all muslims to participate in jihad until sharia is the law of the land, he is correct. Al Qaeda’s co-founder and former emir Osama bin Laden said:  “It is a duty for the Umma with all its categories, men, women and youths, to […]

UTT Special Report: U.S. Submits to Islam

Not understanding the Global Islamic Movement and what drives its actions is the reason America lost the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Since 9/11, military generals, Presidents, National Security Advisors, Members of Congress, and others have been too busy to stop and actually do what the law and their Oath of Office require them to […]

UTT Victory in Arizona

Over 100 law enforcement officers from all over Arizona as well as a few other states attended UTT’s “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Network” course at the Mesa Police Department hosted by the Arizona Police Officers’ Association last week (May 16-18), and received a heavy dose of reality about the threats facing the United States from […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: The Last Fatwa

The Ottoman Empire – the last Islamic Caliphate prior to the current one claimed by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi – was established at the end of the thirteenth century, and was not dissolved until the early 1920’s. The last sitting Caliph to issue a fatwa – Islamic legal ruling – was Mehmed V […]

Why the MB is Still Not Designated as Terrorists in the US

It is no oversight the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood is not yet designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).  In fact, the issue has now been pushed off the table by the Trump administration as the result of a significantly successful information operation perpetrated by the International Muslim Brotherhood continually supported by media outlets. It should be […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Will New FBI Director Smash Jihadis in U.S.?

After 9/11, the only Islamic organizations the FBI conducted “outreach” with were known enemies of the United States – Muslim Brotherhood (MB), Hamas, and Al Qaeda. While individual agents work diligently to protect their communities, the FBI’s strategic response to the Global Islamic Movement has been destructive and incoherent. Here are a few of the […]

CAIR Works “Tirelessly to Advance the Agenda & Goals of the Muslim Brotherhood & Hamas”

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a terrorist organization.  Specifically, it was created in 1994 by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas in the United States. This week’s UTT Radio Broadcast (30 mins) – which can be heard at www.WorldviewRadio.com – features an interview with UTT’s Vice President Chris Gaubatz […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Muslims Threaten Death for Free Speech

On January 7, 2015, two muslim brothers – Said and Cherif Kouachi – killed 12 and wounded many others in Paris in an attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo because they insulted Islam’s prophet. Around the world non-Muslims are being threatened with death and killed for “insulting” Islam’s prophet Mohammad. Why? Because Mohammad himself […]

Ignoring Former Muslims To Our Detriment

Many men and women have left Islam and courageously speak truthfully about what Islam teaches and the threat it poses to the civilized world. These are people grew up being taught about the obligation to wage jihad, that taking Jews and Christians for friends is unlawful because it is prohibited by Allah in the Koran, […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Leaders Unable to Tell Friend from Foe

One lesson the recent debacle in Sioux Falls brought to center stage is that many leaders cannot discern friend from foe in the war against the Islamic Movement.  This exposes Americans to greater danger each day. Here are a few examples:       Abdurabman Alamoudi was the most prominent Islamic leader in the United States […]

Threat Assessment in the Domestic War

An objective review of the activities of the Islamic Movement in the United States, the response from US law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and the actions of local, state and federal leaders reveals the U.S. is closer to losing the war domestically than at any point in time since 9/11/2001. Enemy Forces The leading Muslim […]

Jihad in South Dakota – Muslims Threaten, Officials Do Nothing

Last Sunday evening, April 9, 2017, over 500 people gathered for the Worldview Weekend Rally in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  The Muslim Brotherhood threatened, a Muslim showed up in what was a possible thwarted attack, and local officials did nothing. This is how America will lose this war if it does not change course immediately […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Sharia Overseas is Same Sharia in U.S.

In the wake of the Palm Sunday killings of Christians in two churches in Egypt by Muslims, UTT repeated the truth that what happens overseas is happening or will happen here.

Muslims Target Christians & Coptic Pope on Palm Sunday

Muslims from ISIS wearing explosive vests attacked two churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday killing 44 Christians.       The first bomb exploded in St. George’s Church in Tanta (60 miles north of Cairo) killing at least 27 and injuring nearly 80 others.

UTT Throwback Thursday: IRAN is Still a Threat

President Jimmy Carter’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Andrew Young, said “(Ayatollah) Khomeini will eventually be hailed as a saint.” As a result of the U.S. administration being soft-hearted, soft-minded, and naive, Iran launched an Islamic revolution, and on November 4, 1979 52 American hostages were taken from the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and held for […]

Western Leaders Confuse Endangering the Innocent for Compassion

In London, the Prime Minister (and the previous Prime Minister) and many members of Parliament say the recent jihadi attack in Westminster has nothing to do with Islam, and call for embracing the Islamic community. In Germany, Angela Merkel has opened German borders to people from sharia-adherent jihadi nations, has defended jihadis as being “un-Islamic” […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: The Process of Settlement

When the Muslim Brotherhood came to the United States in the 1950’s, it did so with a plan. As was mentioned in UTT’s article on Monday, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood is now openly confirming much of what UTT has been saying for years, but the MB denied until recently. Recalling their stated objective in the […]

The Media’s Incoherent Reporting on the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood

Last week’s unprofessional and nonsensical article in the Atlantic demonstrates the media will avoid evidence and facts at all costs to defend terrorists and apologize for the Global Islamic Movement. The bright side of the American media’s collusion with our enemies is that they are so overwhelmingly stupid, they expose themselves, making it easy on […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Britsh Leaders’ Inability to Speak Truth About Islam

In the shadows of yesterday’s attack (3/22/2017) at Westminster in England which left two citizens, one police officer, and the jihadi attacker dead, one wonders if British leaders will continue to apologize for Islam or speak truth about this deadly threat to the United Kingdom. See UTT’s new video entitled “British Appeasement to Islam” HERE. Where […]

Muslim Brotherhood (NAIT) Directly Confronts President of the United States

In response to President Trump’s second Executive Order designed to keep individuals from hostile nations from entering the United States, the Attorney General of Hawaii announced he will file suit against the Trump administration.  The plaintiff listed in Hawaii’s lawsuit is Dr. Ismail Elshikh, the Imam of the Muslim Association of Hawaii.

UTT Throwback Thursday: Mainstream Media’s Support for Terrorists

Following Monday’s UTT article “Is CNN Guilty of Material Support of Terrorism?” there was an overwhelming positive response from UTT followers who noted the many other incidents of mainstream media defending terrorists, specifically Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). So, for today’s UTT Throwback Thursday we will look at Hamas’ […]

Is CNN Guilty of Material Support of Terrorism?

Could a reporter and/or media organization which intentionally provides a terrorist or terrorist organization air time to promote the terrorist’s agenda be charged as in violation of Title 18 of U.S. Code, Section 2339A, Material Support to Terrorists? Mainstream media attacking those who speak truth about the threat of Islam in the United States is […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Attacks on UTT Intensify, But Have Less Effect

In the summer of 2014, UTT scheduled a one-day training program for law enforcement in the Phoenix, Arizona area hosted by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office (MCAO).  The program was designed to teach police officers and investigators about the Islamic Movement in the United States and Arizona, and provide them with tools to help them […]

UTT: Real Truth About Real Threats

Last week’s UTT article entitled “Unfit for Duty” makes the point that two of the men professionally responsible to the President of the United States for speaking truthfully about national security threats – LtGen HR McMaster and Sebastian Gorka – are not doing so, specifically as it relates to the Islamic threat. In response to the […]

Unfit for Duty

The new National Security Advisor – Lieutenant General Herbert Raymond McMaster – and the Counter-Terrorism advisor to the President of the United States – Sebastian Gorka – both unequivocally state the “terrorist” threat America faces has nothing to do with “true” Islam. Both men are catastrophically wrong and, therefore, are leading America down a disastrous […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Flynn, The Shadow Government & America’s Second Civil War

Today’s UTT Throwback Thursday looks all the way back to…Monday, when UTT identified the threat of the Shadow Government and the penetration of America’s national security and governmental decision-making apparatus by jihadi, hard-left/Marxist, and other enemies.

UTT Throwback Thursday: Virginia – From Jefferson to Jihad Loving

The home of Thomas Jefferson is under assault again – this time it is by Virginia’s leaders who are more concerned with being liked by America’s enemies than with doing their duty in their official capacities, and Muslim leaders who lie about their true intentions. From the Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler – who […]

Sharia Commands Muslims To Lie To Non-Muslims

KORAN  98:6 The Koran says non-Muslims are the worst of all creatures (98:6), so it should be no surprise the Koran and the Sunna (example of the Islamic prophet Mohammad) allow and oblige Muslims to lie to non-Muslims. All authoritative Islamic law (sharia) obliges jihad until the world is under Islamic rule. Therefore, when Muslim […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Bush Redo?

On September 11, 2001, and in the weeks following that tragic day, President George W. Bush demonstrated compassion, empathy and love for his fellow Americans, while also showing the world strength and resolve.

Skirt-Wearing Jihadi Sherifa Zuhur Exemplifies the Battle Ahead for America

UTT had an interesting exchange on twitter this weekend with Sherifa Zuhur, an apologist for America’s enemies – specifically, terrorist organizations.

UTT Throwback Thursday: Will the Present Remain the Past?

Stephen Coughlin arguably understands the enemy threat doctrine and how our enemy operates strategically better than anyone else in America.

Where is Suit-Wearing Jihadi Suhail Khan Today?

Prolific suit-wearing jihadi Suhail Khan was in the White House on 9/11.  After officials discovered his father was a prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader, he was moved out, but found himself back in the fold in a relatively short amount of time, serving two Secretaries of Transportation in the Bush administration. This gave Suhail Khan a […]

Five (5) people are dead and 13 others wounded after Esteban Santiago shot them with a handgun inside the baggage claim area of the Fort Lauderdale (Florida) Airport Friday (1/06/2017).

Propaganda THEN and NOW

Are Mosques Muslim “Churches?”

“But is the mosque only for prayers?  No.  The mosque is the center for all Islamic activity as it used to be in the mosques of the Prophet in Medina.  In these mosques, not only prayers took, place, but it was a school of knowledge where companions used to study the Quran and ask questions. […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Treasonous Leadership Decisions by Ohio Officials Have Deadly Consequences

As Muslim Jihadi Strikes OSU, Media Drives the Deception Operation

The Space Between Truth and Fantasy is Where The Enemy Wins

Are there two versions of Islam?  Is there radical Islamism which is bad and regular old Islam which is good?

Jihadi Lovers Have No Place in a Trump Administration

Senator Bob Corker and Congressmen Mike Rogers and Mike McCaul have no business holding any position in a Trump administration if Mr. Trump actually wants to defeat the Jihadi Movement in the United States.

All Hands on Deck

The historic election on Tuesday was a resounding rejection of failed socialist programs, weak government leaders, and corruption/tyranny on both sides of the political aisle. From a national security perspective, this is not the time to find “common ground” with those who oppose liberty and our Constitutional Republic. This is the beginning of a battle […]

The Duty to Vote

“We electors have an important constitutional power placed in our hands; Let us examine, then, with a sober, a manly . . . and a Christian spirit; let us neglect all party [loyalty] and advert to facts; let us believe no man to be infallible or impeccable in government any more than in religion; take […]

UTT Calls Out Hamas In Oklahoma

In this war, facts and evidence matter.  Its a war of narratives.  One narrative is based on facts and evidence. That is what UTT specializes in.

UTT Throwback Thursday: TSA Surrenders to Terrorists

In January 2010, Hamas (doing business as CAIR) complained new TSA security procedures would alienate Muslims. The complaints stemmed from TSA’s announcement it would strengthen security measures and give extra scrutiny to travelers entering the U.S. from Cuba, Sudan, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and Yemen. Seems reasonable […]

In This War Minnesota’s Twin Cities Are Lost

After spending all of last week in Minnesota, UTT’s professional assessment of the enemy situation is this:  the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota – known as the “Twin Cities” – are in enemy-held territory.  They are, at least for the time being, lost – meaning, they are under the control of a collaborative […]

UTT Throwback Thursday: Beltway Snipers Were Jihadis

Today when a Muslim attacks non-Muslim in America, our leaders, Muslim leaders, and the media tell us these are the actions of “mentally ill” people.  Strangely, this nonsense has been going on a long time.

Finding Truth Among Talking Heads in the Media

by John D. Guandolo Many of the questions UTT gets these days revolve around our thoughts on various talking heads who seems to “get it” about the Islamic threat.  Often times the questioners are disappointed to hear the truth UTT shares with them about the person whom they were inquiring.

It has been fifteen (15) years since September 11, 2001.  It is a day seared in our hearts and minds. Today, we are far from where we thought we would be 15 years after the jihadi attacks of 9/11.  America lost two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we lost thousands of American lives since […]

Dawah: The Call to Islam is Deceptive, Dangerous and Deadly

Dawah in Islam is not “proselytizing” to others.  It is the “Call” or “Invitation” to Islam, and is a legal requirement before Muslims wage jihad against non-Muslims.

Why haven’t Muslims in America and Europe come out of the woodwork by the thousands to provide the identities of jihadis at their mosques, Islamic schools, and neighborhoods to law enforcement? The reason is the same as it always is:  it is a violation of Sharia (Islamic Law) – the guiding doctrine which drives Islam and […]

Information Warfare: The #1 Lie – We Must Use Muslims to Lead the Fight Against ISIS

In the “War on Terror” – or whatever it is being called this week – America’s leaders tell us the key to stopping ISIS or “radical Islamic terrorism” is to use the Muslim community here in the U.S. and Arab leaders abroad.  This is dangerous, foolish, and will continue to lead us down the path of […]

Muslims Say Thank You To Angela Merkel By Killing German Citizens

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel is directly responsible for the murders of her citizens in the four jihadi attacks in Germany in the last week.

On June 12, 2016, UTT published an article after the jihadi attack in Orlando, Florida making it clear the marxist/anarchist movement is working with and in support of the jihadi network, and are a threat to the Republic all on their own as well. “The way is paved for the jihadi organizations by socialist and marxist […]

Vehicular Jihad Like Attack in France Lawful Under Sharia

Last night, a Muslim jihadi drove a truck into a crowd at the Bastille Day celebrations (July 14th) in Nice, France killing nearly 80 people and wounding scores of others. Where would a Muslim come to believe that such behavior is acceptable in Islam? The better question is “Where would a Muslim learn such behavior […]

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 […]

Officials Reveal America’s National Security is “Controlled” by the Jihadists

Two former U.S. government officials made explosive revelations on national radio this past Friday including the charge the U.S. government is a “tool” for the jihadi movement here, and that the driving force behind America’s domestic counter-terrorism strategies and our foreign policy is the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). President Obama with Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas leader (Islamic Society […]

Orlando Attack Is Nothing Compared to What Is Coming

A jihadi named Omar Mateen armed with a rifle, a handgun and possibly explosives – who has been identified as an “ISIS soldier” – killed 50 or more Americans on Sunday morning at a night club in Orlando, Florida.  The largest single loss of life in such an incident in American history.

CAIR’s Violent Assault on Free Speech

What does CAIR have in common with ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban? It is a terrorist organization which hates and violently opposes Free Speech. Like ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban, CAIR is a jihadi organization.   It is Hamas in the United States. Don’t let the suits fool you.         […]

Oklahoma Beheading Case Another Example Judges and Attorneys Resistant to Linking Barbaric Behavior to Islam

How many Muslims who kill in the name of Allah have to profess their loyalty to the teachings of Islam in open court before judges and attorneys realize Islam mandates violence according to sharia (Islamic Law)? On September 24, 2014, Alton Nolen, a Muslim, sliced the neck of Colleen Hufford – a former co-worker at […]

America’s Security Facade

Travelers waiting in long lines at Seattle’s SEATAC Airport Travelers using U.S. airports are familiar with long lines due to TSA checkpoints, and recent reports indicate lines will get longer in the near future because of new TSA screening procedures, fewer TSA officers and other related issues. Yet, America is no safer since 9/11 because […]

One Message for the Americans, One Message for the Muslims

How is it that nearly fifteen (15) years after 9/11 none (ie ZERO) of the Islamic advisors to the United States government have shared with our leaders the Quranic concept of abrogation, the definition of “jihad” in sharia (Islamic Law), or the fact sharia obliges jihad until the entire world is under sharia? It is because sharia […]

If Every ISIS Fighter Was Killed – The Global Jihad Would Roll On

For several years after 9/11/01, the American government focused all it’s energy hunting down Al Qaeda and its leaders.  The American public was told it was in a war against Al Qaeda.  Yet today, it is as if Al Qaeda evaporated from the planet and our only adversary is ISIS. The fact is, if every Muslim jihadi […]

UTT Identifies Coming Threats While Government and Media Admit Cluelessness

In the year leading up to the Garland, Texas shooting Understanding the Threat (UTT) briefed Arizona law enforcement officials about the threat posed by the jihadi Islamic Community Center of Phoenix – the place from which the two Islamic jihadis originated. For the last several years, UTT has been briefing and speaking about the threat […]

Losing the War at the Local Level

The war in which we are engaged, and not engaged, against the jihadis here in the United States is a very different kind of war than most Americans are accustomed.  In this war, battles are lost at local town councils, in the media and school classrooms, and, sometimes, in state legislatures. So it is with […]

The Jihadi Network in America

Time Magazine blames “Islamophobia” for America’s ills.  Congressman John Conyers says the House bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a “Foreign Terrorist Organization” is Islamophobic because, according to Conyers, “Since swearing off violence in the 1950s, the Brotherhood has become a predominantly non-violent religious, political, and social service organization.”  The Speaker of the House Paul […]

The Islamic Law of Slander and the Continued Destruction of Free Speech

Western leaders’ continued assault on free speech is reaching new lows.  Recently free speech has been met with arrests in Europe, and, in America, calls for an end to “anti-Muslim bigotry.” Last week a man in Scotland was arrested for a Facebook post disparaging Muslim refugees in Scotland. This week a Dutch man was arrested […]

ISIS, The Koran, and The Hudud

ISIS crucifies Christians, kills apostates (those who leave Islam), and amputates the hands of those who steal. How do they justify such barbaric behavior? These cruel punishments are commands from allah in the Koran. The Hudud is a part of sharia (Islamic Law), and contains the seven (7) crimes specifically listed in the Koran along […]

Where is the Mystical “Peaceful” Version of Islam Taught?

American and European leaders tell us that Islam is a “wonderful” “religion” which teaches peace and love among all peoples.  Officials often quote the Koran in order to demonstrate the truth of this narrative.  Yet, the question remains:  Where do MUSLIMS teach other MUSLIMS that Islam requires them to love all other people in the […]

What Happens When a Muslim Dies?

Why are so many Muslims motivated to fight and die as martyrs/shaheeds in Islam? According to Islamic doctrine, when a Muslim dies for any reason – car crash, heart attack, old age – his body is washed, shrouded, prayed over, and buried in accordance with Sharia (Islamic Law).  Specific details of how the body is […]

What Is The Purpose of Islamic Centers/Mosques in America?

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Society of Boston was founded by Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi and was home to the Boston Marathon Bomber Tsarnaev brothers Many Americans believe a mosque or Islamic Center is simply a “Muslim church.”  This could not be further from the truth. In Islam, Mohammad is considered the al Insan al Kamil […]

If You Don’t Know Abrogation You Don’t Know Sharia

One of the facets of sharia (Islamic Law) that turns the light bulb on in people’s minds more than anything else seems to be the moment they grasp the Koranic concept of abrogation and progressive revelation. Islam teaches that Allah (the god of Islam) revealed Islam to mankind throughout history progressively. Allah revealed the Law […]

How Does Sharia Define “Jihad”?

Since 9/11, Presidents, Members of Congress, the media, and many others have publicly stated that individuals who commit acts of violence in the name of Islam are acting as “criminals” or “thugs” but certainly are not doing what Islam teaches because “no religion would teach that.” In fact, Islam divides the entire world into two parts: […]

What is Sharia?

Earlier this week, UTT published the first in a series of articles about sharia (Islamic law) entitled “Understanding the Threat” which amplified the fact that sharia is the focal point and driving force behind everything jihadis across the globe are doing.

Understanding the Threat

As we enter 2016 and the global jihad grows, it is critical for discerning Americans, and all people in the free West, to understand the threat we face in order to address and defeat it.

The Intentional Obama Administration

The most frequent question Understanding the Threat’s (UTT) President – John Guandolo – receives when he speaks in the media or during public presentations these days is:  “Are our leaders THIS stupid, or are they intentionally advocating for, aiding and abetting, and directly supporting our enemies.” The truth is, no one is that stupid. In […]

President’s Speech Confirms USG Still Cannot Identify Enemy

Sunday Night President Obama spoke to the nation about the threat we face from ISIS/ISIL, and confirmed for all of us that our government still cannot identify our enemy or their threat doctrine, and, therefore, no strategy can be successful. President Obama said we must “counter the vicious ideology ISIL promotes” but fails to acknowledge […]

Jihad Strikes CA: Media Utterly Incoherent as Fox News Promotes Hamas

From the beginning of the attack on Wednesday in San Bernadino (CA) UTT called it jihad.  The modus operandi was very similar to Paris in several ways (gear, vehicle, calm demeanor of the assailants, well-planned attack, and Muslim perpetrators). We knew from early on in the day the perpetrators were Muslim because many hours after […]

France Strikes ISIS Targets in Syria But Not In Paris

After Friday night’s attack in Paris by Muslim jihadis, French military airstrikes hit ISIS targets in Syria, yet left the jihadi network inside of France intact.

Are Massachusetts, Michigan, and Minnesota Surrendering to the Jihadis?

The state of Massachusetts appears to have surrendered to Hamas; Hamtramck, Michigan now has a Muslim majority city council; and the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota is carrying the water for jihadis by putting the weight of the U.S. Attorney’s Office behind the terrorist’s information operation to silence those who speak truthfully about Islam. UTT is […]

Congress Files Legislation to Designate Muslim Brotherhood “Terrorists”

Both houses of Congress filed legislation Tuesday designating the Muslim Brotherhood a “Foreign Terrorist Organization.” Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) introduced the legislation in their respective chambers. The Free Beacon was the first to report it here.  The story was also carried by Breitbart here.

Officials Find “No Motive” for UC Student Stabbings – But Are Sure Its Not “Terrorism”

On Thursday, 18 year old Faisal Mohammad stabbed several students at the University of California at Merced before being shot to death by police.  University officials and investigators have discounted any possible political or religious motivations behind the attack. From the Mercer Sun-Star: The UC Merced student who stabbed four people during a campus rampage “intended […]

“Interfaith Outreach” Movement Led by Marxists and Jihadis

Two weeks ago the Parliament of the World’s Religions held its annual conference at the Salt Lake City Convention Center boasting “10,000 People. 80 Nations. 50 Faiths.”  Representing Islam were the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Arabia.  That alone tells a story, but the presence of Marxists/Alinskyists and Muslim Brotherhood organizations funded primarily by Saudi Arabia […]

Victory for Freedom of Speech

On Wednesday, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals completely reversed a lower court’s decision and ruled in favor of Evangelical Christians who were arrested for disturbing the peace at the 2012 Arab Festival in Dearborn, Michigan.  The Christians had bottles, eggs, and other items hurled at them by Muslims for publicly preaching the Gospel of […]

The Foundation of America Cannot Be Compromised

America has so strayed from its bedrock foundation, that simple discussions and policies seem complicated by the emotions of the day, people’s perspective, and a host of ideas swirling about our social and political world today. Yet when we look at the world through the lens of our founding principles, we come to the quick […]

In Light of Jeremiah Wright’s Comments UTT Asks: Was Jesus a Muslim?

Saturday at the Nation of Islam event titled “Justice or Else!” President Obama’s pastor Jeremiah Wright stated Jesus was a “Palestinian.”  This is historically untrue, but it opens up a door for a deeper discussion. In light of a nationwide push by Muslim Brotherhood organizations to propagate the message that Jesus of Nazareth was a Muslim, it is […]

Our Lady of Victory

Today, October 7th, the free West celebrates and remembers that on this date in 1571 the last great naval battle of oared ships took place in the Gulf of Corinth (Greece).  Known as the Battle of Lepanto – where the Muslims had their fleet – this was the first defeat of the Muslim Turks at […]

Jihadi Information Operation in Irving Texas

The Muslim Brotherhood in America rarely does things willy nilly.  The case of the young Muslim arrested in Texas last week by Police for bringing a device to school – that very closely resembles a detonator – is no exception. Whether his parents put him up to it on their own, they acted under guidance […]
