Early on in his chilling new book, “Radical Islam in the House,” Michael Coffman quotes former Palestinian terrorist (and Muslim whistleblower) Walid Shoebat on the gullibility of the American people: “The American mediocre mind is no match to 14 centuries of Islamic deception.”
Now, before you get all upset, gentle reader, consider that what Shoebat says is true. What we have today is a stealth agenda by the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate our government and wider culture … and it is succeeding in spades.
Meanwhile, Americans obsess over “Duck Dynasty.” I guess the truth hurts.
Coffman’s book is perhaps the best I’ve read at conveying the reality of this agenda to impose Shariah law on Americans. At only about 100 pages, it’s crammed with material that will be new to most.
Interestingly, all through the book, the author asks a rhetorical question that goes basically like this: “Why is the Obama administration helping the Muslim Brotherhood?”
The only way we’ll wake up from our self-imposed slumber and meet this lethal threat is if we start asking questions like this. For many, the answer is obvious, and Coffman makes a stone-cold case for that answer.
Consider that the Brotherhood’s 1991 report, “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goals of the Group,” which outlines very clearly what they want to do. The fact that the jihadist group has infiltrated the highest levels of the White House indicates they are succeeding. Yet the White House ignores the peril.
Coffman explains the basic differences between Shi’ite Muslims and Sunni Muslims, and articulates succinctly that rivalries among jihadists are only that; they might differ on tactics and strategies, but the end goal remains the same: conquer the world by establishing a global caliphate.
The great value of “Radical Islam in the House” is that Coffman clearly shows the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy of stealth takeover is perhaps more clever than al-Qaida’s more confrontational methods. But they are two sides of the same coin.
Muhammad Morsi, the recently deposed MB head of Egypt, is nowhere near the moderate his Western dupes make him out to be. And so we can ask the question: “Why is Obama working day and night to prop him up, even as Egypt burns in revolution?”
In a May, 2012 election speech, Morsi stated: “The Qur’an is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal.”
Well. The death-cult Morsi helps lead (the Brotherhood was formed in Egypt in 1928 by Islamists who wanted to return to what they said was the “pure” religion of the Prophet) is momentarily on the ropes in Egyptian political circles, but oddly, has found sanctuary at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Mohamed Magid is imam of the ADAMS Center, a mosque in Virginia (according to Coffman, “one of the most dangerous in America”). Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano saw fit to appoint Magid to DHS’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group, which was set up to advise the Obama administration on what it can and cannot say regarding Islam!
This boot-licking posture plays right into the hands of the Islamists’ dhimmi status for “non-believers.”
Further, there are former government officials who are helping mainstream radical Islam. Former Vice President Al Gore’s “Current TV” has been sold to al-Jazeera, the Middle-East based “news bureau” that openly applauds radical Islam. As Coffman points out in “Radical Islam in the House,” Current’s co-founder Joel Hyatt has stated – incredibly – that “al-Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current”!
One of the outstanding features of Coffman’s book is the fact that it will play well with conservative Christian audiences. In other words, if Islamists are pushing their worldview through religion, it is at least as valid for Christians to do the same.
As Coffman clearly points out: “The Bible’s account of history is verifiable and contains hundreds of prophecies that have been literally fulfilled. The Qur’an has none.”
This type of bold statement is indicative of a true patriot who serves as a beacon for his countrymen still largely in the dark about our enemies’ true intentions.
