Once the dust settled, last week’s protest of a Donald Trump rally in Chicago demonstrated a growing nexus between Islamist groups in the United States and the radical leftist “Black Lives Matter” movement.
This rhetoric of unity between these movements was clearly on display at the 2015 joint conference of the 2015 Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). MAS was described by federal prosecutors as the “overt arm” of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, and ICNA is recognized as the front for the Pakistani Islamist group Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) founded by one of the foremost thinkers on modern Jihad, Syed Abul A’la Maududi.
At the event, MAS leader Khalilah Sabra openly discussed the importance of Muslim support for Black Lives Matter, and urged “revolution.” Comparing the situation in the United States to the Muslim Brotherhood-led Arab Spring revolutions, she asked, “We are the community that staged a revolution across the world; if we can do that, why can’t we have that revolution in America?”Reporting on this merging “revolutionary” alliance goes back as far as the first outbreak of disorder in Ferguson. Few may recall the attendance at Michael Brown’s funeral of CAIR executive director Nihad Awad. Awad was identified in federal court as a member of the Palestine Committee, a covert group of Muslim Brothers dedicated to supporting Hamas in the United States.
CAIR joined other groups named by federal law enforcement as Muslim Brotherhood organizations and lined up behind the Ferguson protests.
In November of 2014, Fox News reported on an effort by CAIR Michigan Director Dawud Walid to link the death of Michael Brown at the hands of police and the death ofLuqman Abdullah, a Detroit imam shot during an FBI raid.
Abdullah was described by the FBI as a leader of a nationwide Islamic organization known as “The Ummah,” run by convicted cop-killer Jamil Abdullah Amin. Abdullah’s group engaged in criminal activity in order to raise funds in order for an effort to establish Sharia law in opposition to the U.S. government.
Amin and CAIR have a long association together, with CAIR providing funding for Amin’s legal defense, and issuing numerous press releases in support of the Georgia radical imam and former Black Panther.
While this linkage of Islamist front groups to radical racial politics may seem a relatively new development, the reality is it has been the result of a nearly four decade long effort by Islamist groups. A major thinker on this effort was a Pakistani immigrant and ICNA leader named Shamim A. Siddiqui, who knew JeI founder Maududi personally. Siddiqui wrote his work, Methodology of Dawah Il Allah in American Perspective in 1989.
Siddiqui defined Dawah Il Allah as,
“an organized, a determined and a continuous effort to call the people of the land to the fold of their Creator and Sustainer, Allah (SWT), as priority Number One [of the Da’ee], towards accepting Islam as a way of life and convincing them to the need and urgency of establishing the Deen of Allah in the body politics of the country, with the sole objective to get the pleasure of Allah.” [Emphasis added]
In other words, Siddiqui focused not solely on religious proselytizing, but on the promotion of Islam as a political system. Siddiqui spends much of Methodology of Dawah discussing the efforts being made at recruiting and indoctrinating African Americans, and complained that the “revolutionary” aspect of Islam (his words) was being ignored by those working to convert the African American community.
Ultimately, Siddiqui believed that the Dawah mission depends on merging the grassroots intensity of radicalized African American Muslim communities—like those led by Jamil Abdullah Amin—with the doctrinal and more sophisticated Muslim Brotherhood-led immigrant communities. Siddiqui writes:
“This again, will not be possible without bringing both the immigrant and Afro-American Muslim communities of America on to one platform. The resources of one and the political awakening of the other, when combined together with the Islamic Movement of America, will be able to play miracles…There will be no dearth of resources, both of men and material, at that time. Only the Islamic Movement of America can get this job accomplished.”…

Prophecy. Unlike the self-fulfilling Islamic “predictions” that are contingent upon its own believers to manufacture, maneuver and manipulate events in an effort to somehow render “Islamic prophecy” as genuine, the Bible is filled with true predictive prophecy of human behavior, demonstrably independent of any effort to facilitate its fulfillment. For nearly two-thousand years Christians have shuddered at some of the most frightening predictions described in the Book of Revelation, a sister-book to the texts of Daniel and filled with eschatological language that has inspired end-of-days folklore for nearly two millennia. Though filled with metaphor and symbolism, many aspects of Revelation’s predatory, beast-like kingdom as it relates to the conduct of its adherents are not. Beheading and forced conversion, for example, are understood as the literal conduct of a kingdom that would rear its ugly head prior to the Second Coming of Christ. Christians would be one of its primary targets. Decapitation would be one of its preferred methods of execution. And all, regardless of race, tribe, language or social status, would be forced to submit to its religious dictates on pain of death. It’s the stuff of nightmares.
As the article “Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’” explains, the seals of Revelation depict separate progressive, compound stages to an end-of-days beast kingdom that would one day expand to become the largest, most deceptive politico-religious system the world has ever known, the kingdom of Islam. Though much of the following will overlap with other articles on this site, the intent here is to briefly compare the conduct of those who follow after the Beast of Revelation with the conduct expected by the teachings of Islam. After all, logic only dictates that if the seals describe the rise (and subsequent fall) of an Islamic Beast, then Muslim teachings would need to necessitate that those who follow the “prophet” of Islam therefore engage in precisely the sort of key behaviors typified by the Beast’s followers we read in Revelation.

By Patrick Knox, The Sun – “TWO migrants from Afghanistan have reportedly been arrested over the three-hour gang rape of a woman that was broadcast on Facebook Live.
The two men, aged 18 and 20, who are both from Afghanistan, were arrested in the city at the weekend after police were tipped off by social media users, it was reported by The Local newspaper.
The third man, a Swedish citizen aged 24 according to court documents seen by The Local, was detained on suspicion of failing to reveal rape which shocked the world after it appeared on Facebook live.
The three, who cannot be legally identified under Swedish law, have not been charged.
In Sweden a person suspected of a serious crime can be detained without being charged with the approval of a court.

In a non-Muslim land such as the UK, for instance, the Muslim population accounts for just 4% of the British population yet has 200 times the number of sexual perpetrators than any other group. Muslim taxi drivers are reportedly assaulting and raping hundreds, perhaps thousands, of British girls every year. Muslim sex gangs are waging ‘rape Jihad’ against British children. An alarming number of Muslim clerics across the UK are condoning child marriage. From Sweden to Norway, from France to Germany, Denmark, Spain and elsewhere, sexual immorality within the Muslim community is running rampant all across Europe and far beyond. As a Muslim prayer leader from Egypt who was caught sexually assaulting girls during a trip to Australia explained, such behavior is simply part of his Islamic culture.” Read more.

Reuters – “A man deliberately drove into pedestrians, killing four and injuring more than 20, in the center of Australia’s second largest city of Melbourne on Friday, but police said the incident was not terrorism-related.
Police eventually rammed the car and shot the 26-year-old driver in the arm, before dragging him from the vehicle and arresting him. Police said the man had a history of family violence and was wanted over a stabbing earlier in the day.
Pursued by police cars, the man had been seen driving erratically before speeding into a pedestrian mall, ploughing into people, police said. A shop video showed several people diving into a convenience store as the car raced along the footpath.
‘We witnessed about half a dozen people that ricocheted off the car one way or another. I saw one person fly up almost roof level of the car as they got thrown up against one of the retail stores,’ Sharn Baylis, 46, told Reuters by telephone.
‘You could hear the gasping and the screaming from people, then you just started hearing the screams and the crying as it sunk in,’ she said.
Baylis said she rushed across tram tracks and with other bystanders and gave cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) first aid to a badly hurt man who had been run over.
‘I think it was pretty much in vain at that point. The seriousness of his injuries, he was probably the worst I saw.’

By Pete Williams, Tom Winter, Tracy Connor and Ken Dilanian, NBC News – “An Ohio State University student plowed a car into a campus crowd, then jumped out and started stabbing people with a butcher knife before being shot dead by police Monday morning, officials said.
Nine people were taken to hospitals after the ambush, and one was in critical condition. The incident was initially reported as an ‘active shooter’ situation, but the suspect did not shoot anyone.
A police officer was on the scene within a minute and killed the assailant. ‘He engaged the suspect and eliminated the threat,’ OSU Police Chief Craig Stone said.
Law enforcement officials told NBC News the suspect’s name is Abdul Artan, an 18-year-old student at the university. He was a Somali refugee who left his homeland with his family in 2007, lived in Pakistan and then came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident of the United States, officials said.
The motive was unknown, but officials said the attack was clearly deliberate and may have been planned in advance.

One of the reasons why Islam despises Christianity is because one of the foundational pillars upon which Christianity stands firm acknowledges the Divine nature of Jesus Christ. According to Islam, however, to believe that Jesus is Divine (or, in their words, to believe that Jesus is a co-equal partner with God) is an unpardonable sin called “shirk” that “Allah” will never forgive. Nonetheless, even though Muslims would never teach that Mohammed is “Allah” in the flesh, they associate and equate the “prophet” of Islam with “Allah” himself repeatedly every day. Islam teaches that “Allah” has no partners on one hand, but contradicts itself by teaching that one cannot become a Muslim unless they acknowledge that “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger” per the Shahada on the other. In Islam, a Muslim’s “salvation” is therefore determined by their obedience and devotion to Mohammed, effectively elevating the “prophet” of Islam to the same co-equal status of Islam’s own deity. To acknowledge that there is no god but “Allah” is insufficient. You must acknowledge the “perfect man” Mohammed as well. This, of course, begs the question: Since Mohammed is co-equal with “Allah,” what does Mohammed’s “I-have-been-made-victorious-with-terror” moral character reveal about the nature of “Allah”? …
Revelation 13:18, “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate [psēphizō – ‘reckon’] the number [arithmos – ‘multitude’ of people] of the beast, for it is the number [arithmos – ‘multitude’ of people] of a man [the false prophet Mohammed]. That number is [χξς – ‘In The Name of Allah’ in Arabic].”

By Steve Wright, The Telegraph & Argus – “A BRADFORD cab driver, who yesterday admitted murdering a shopkeeper after driving to Glasgow to confront him, was described by a former work colleague as deeply religious but not fanatical.
Tanveer Ahmed, 32, of Toller, pleaded guilty at the High Court in Glasgow to murdering popular businessman Asad Shah, who died after he was found with stab wounds outside his shop.
The court heard that Ahmed, a Sunni Muslim, drove from Bradford to Glasgow on March 24 believing that Mr Shah, 40, had ‘disrespected’ the Prophet Muhammad.
On the way he had watched online footage of Mr Shah, an Ahmadi Muslim, and commented: ‘Something needs to be done, it needs nipped in the bud.’
When Ahmed arrived at his victim’s shop he engaged him in a discussion, before pulling out a knife and attacking him.
Assistant Chief Constable Steve Johnson, of Police Scotland, said the murder of Mr Shah – a peaceful family man, hardworking businessman and well-loved member of the community – was ‘the result of an extreme act of violence; an attack which was concluded within the space of four minutes.’
ACC Johnson added: ‘It is clear that the actions of Tanveer Ahmed were motivated by his religious beliefs.’
The senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Jim Smith, said they had worked closely with West Yorkshire Police to understand the full background to Tanveer Ahmed and his reason for travelling to Glasgow on the night of Mr Shah’s murder…
A former colleague, who worked with Ahmed at a Bradford minicab firm, said: ‘He was just a normal guy. I was shocked when I found out it was him.
‘When I worked with him he was a big, friendly giant. He never raised his voice, he didn’t look threatening.The other drivers never had a disagreement with him.
‘He used to come in to work looking clean and fresh and smelling nice. He was probably the last person in the whole office you would have expected to do something like this.
‘He was a decent guy. He was deeply religious, but not fanatical….'” Read more.

He may have no known ties to Farrakhan or Islamic terror, but killers like this are taking a page out of Islam’s ambush-and-kill playbook. And Farrakhan is getting his wish …

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Islamic supremacist groups have assiduously courted Black Lives Matter, and linked their propaganda efforts against ‘Islamophobia’ to the Black Lives Matter stand against perceived racism. In Dallas last night, we see where this is tending: as Kyle Shideler notes in the March article below, ‘At the event, MAS leader Khalilah Sabra openly discussed the importance of Muslim support for Black Lives Matter, and urged ‘revolution.’ Comparing the situation in the United States to the Muslim Brotherhood-led Arab Spring revolutions, she asked, ‘We are the community that staged a revolution across the world; if we can do that, why can’t we have that revolution in America?’’ And with the mass murder of police in Dallas last night, we’re getting there.
The Nation of Islam is not an orthodox Muslim group, and subscribes to a great deal of racial mythology that is nowhere in Islamic tradition. It is, however, also true that many black Americans first enter the Nation, and then become orthodox Sunni Muslims. And given the increased racial tensions of the Obama era, many people in both the NOI and among mainstream Sunnis have a taste for the ‘revolution’ that is brought about by means of jihad.
‘Dallas police shootings: Race rally cops killed in Dallas sniper ambush,’ The Australian, July 9, 2016:
Heavily armed snipers killed five police and transit officers in downtown Dallas and wounded seven more, in a premeditated and triangulated “ambush-style” assault during a rally protesting against the killing of black men after two shootings this week….
As the FBI and local authorities launched an investigation, their focus was expected to probe militant black rights groups set up in Dallas. Anti-police groups include the New Black Panther Party and Huey P. Newton Gun Club, named after the founder of the 1960s activist Black Panther Party.
The Huey P. Newton Gun Club includes a coalition of BARC (Blacks Against Racist Cops) and other African-American groups, who agitate against police brutality. The group attended the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad mosque in Dallas in April to monitor protests by an anti-Islamic group, the Bureau of American Islamic Relations. Both sides were armed, and moved on by police….
It’s useful to recall this: ‘Black Lives Matter and a History of Islamist Outreach to African Americans,’ by Kyle Shideler, Townhall, March 17, 2016:
The “Religion of Peace.” It substitutes the Bible with the Qur’an — the word of God with the corruption of men. It substitutes Isaac with Ishmael — the son of Promise with the son of misery. It substitutes the Messiah with Mohammed — the Prince of Life with the prophet of death. It substitutes the Church with the Ummah — the Bride of Christ with the Whore of Babylon. It substitutes Almighty Yahweh with “Allah is greater” — the Creator of man with the Destroyer of souls. What is holy has become profane and what is profane has become holy. Is it any wonder, then, to see the Islamic world in shambles and filled with so much sorrow and strife?
The article below by Robert Spencer ties in nicely with yesterday’s post that briefly touches upon why we’re seeing Muslims themselves becoming increasingly bigoted and violent against other fellow Muslims …
Isaiah 5:20, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
Genesis 6:11b-12, “‘You shall name him Ishmael, for the LORD has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.’”
By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “The Islamic State (ISIS) attack in Medina shows once and for all that ISIS is not Islamic, right? After all, how could a Muslim group, much less a self-styled ‘caliphate,’ set off a bomb in the city of Muhammad himself? That proves that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, no? That’s what many Muslims would have us believe. Unfortunately, this is just more deception from practiced masters of deceit – and it’s deception that is increasingly dangerous and offensive as the jihad death count climbs ever higher.
Maher Zain, a Multi Platinum-winning singer and songwriter who is Muslim, wrote on Twitter to his 1.47 million followers: ‘Still need proof that ISIS is the foremost enemy of Islam? They attack the Prophet’s City. Terror knows no religion!’ Boxer Amir Khantweeted to his 1.75 million followers: ‘The attack in our beloved Prophet Muhammad’s city Madinah proves that Isis has no religion!’ The UK Muslim broadcaster Mohammed Shafiq wrote: ‘The attack on #Madinah was an attack against all Muslims. We need unity against this evil.’
Neither Zain nor Khan nor Shafiq nor anyone else, however, explained why this it would be out of the question for jihadis to strike in Medina. Did Muhammad command jihad warfare against unbelievers? Yes: a hadith depicts Muhammad saying: ‘Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war…When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them…. If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them. (Sahih Muslim 4294)
In commanding this, did Muhammad forbid jihad against unbelievers in his city? He did not. But of course, in Medina there are only Muslims, no? And the Qur’an forbids Muslims to kill other Muslims (4:92). But Islam also mandates death for those who are considered heretics and apostates – and the Islamic State, in claiming to be the caliphate, the one true government to which all Muslims owe allegiance, and in demanding the obedience of all Muslims worldwide, has placed itself in the position of considering any Muslims who reject its authority to be heretical by virtue of that very rejection, and therefore worthy of death.
That is all the more true regarding governments of Muslim states that do not accept the caliphate. The Islamic State regards the House of Saud as illegitimate, and therefore to undermine it is a holy act.” Read more.
Flashback: Hurriyet Daily News: With 10 Million Muslims Killed Since 1948 at the Hands of Fellow Muslims, Golda Meir Was Right – “Let’s speak of facts. Sudan is not in the conventional Middle East, so let’s ignore the genocide there. Let’s ignore, also, the West Pakistani massacres in East Pakistan (Bangladesh) totaling 1.25 million in 1971. Or 200,000 deaths in Algeria in war between Islamists and the government in 1991-2006. But a simple, strictly Middle East research will give you one million deaths in the all-Muslim Iran-Iraq war; 300,000 Muslim minorities killed by Saddam Hussein; 80,000 Iranians killed during the Islamic revolution; 25,000 deaths in 1970-71, the days of Black September, by the Jordanian government in its fight against the Palestinians; and 20,000 Islamists killed in 1982 by the elder al-Assad in Hama. The World Health Organization’s estimate of Osama bin Laden’s carnage in Iraq was already 150,000 a few years earlier. In a 2007 research, Gunnar Heinsohn from the University of Bremen and Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, found out that some 11 million Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, (0.3 percent) died during the six years of Arab war against Israel, or one out of every 315 fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent who perished were killed by fellow Muslims.” Read more.
