Here’s yet another example of “are we just that stupid?” When the truth lies right before you and you refuse to accept it, whose fault is that?
Case in point comes from this report by Ryan Mauro of The Clarion Project who asks, “How can the government use chaplains from a group that they know is extremist and involved in terror funding? U.S. Military Hiring Muslim Brotherhood Chaplains – Again?”
Yes ladies and gents, our US military is recruiting Muslim chaplains from an organization with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. And if you’re somehow unfamiliar with the Muslim Brotherhood, please read the 1991 Explanatory Memorandum of the General Strategic Goal of the Ilkwan (Brotherhood) written by Mohammad Akram. The document, uncovered in an FBI raid, details the Brotherhoods planned infiltration of the US – and doggone if they’re not achieving their objectives. You can get your copy here.
According to Mauro’s report The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, is proudly announcing that the U.S. military is again using their chaplains for active-duty service after a 15-year lull. ISNA has a well-documented extremist history. In 1991, the Muslim Brotherhood listed ISNA as one of its main fronts. Declassified FBI memos said ISNA is a component of the Muslim Brotherhood, who sees its “work in America as a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” In 2007, the U.S. government labeled ISNA a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial involving the Holy Land Foundation funneling money to Hamas. The label was upheld in 2009 because of “ample” evidence linking ISNA to Hamas. Last year, ISNA’s Canadian affiliate lost its status as a charity because of its accounting discrepancies and links to Pakistani terrorists.
You may call this “Islamophobic” but I’m certainly not stupid enough to allow my enemy into my country — definitely not my military.
The two chaplains endorsed by ISNA are Sgt. Mustapha Rahouchen, who will be used by the U.S. Army, and Captain Rafael Lantiqua, who was chosen by the U.S. Air Force.
The Muslim chaplaincy services for the military and prisons were started by Abdurrahman Alamoudi, who was convicted in 2003 on terrorism-related charges. He later admitted he was a secret member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.
Former Army officer Nidal Hasan was knowingly proselytizing against our US military combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. His actions were dismissed over the concerns of political correctness and multiculturalism. Hasan was transferred from Walter Reed Hospital to Ft. Hood Texas where he shouted “Allahu Akhbar” while gunning down American Soldiers in 2009 — an incident the Obama administration still refers to as “workplace violence.” Before that, in 2003 another Hasan Akbar of the 101st Airborne Division threw hand grenades into his commanding officer’s sleeping area, killing two and wounding 14 others.
Don’t forget that Anwar al-Awlaki, Nidal Hasan’s mentor, was solicited to lead prayers in our nation’s capital after 9-11. Are we just this stupid? Yes, and it appears we are in fact “stuck on stupid” to the detriment of our national security and our men and women in uniform. I think we should be calling the secretary of defense, as well as the other service secretaries and chiefs and ask simply, Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot?
