What’re The Odds?

Right on time, in the summer in Chicago, where they can bask like lizards in the summer heat they like so well, come the Jihadist Conventioneers.

Oh, they call it something else, but the Islamic group that touts itself as a recruiter for Al-Qaida (even though they are NOT on a terrorism Watch List- Why Not?).

This group, Hizb ut- Tahrir, an Islamic group that openly espouses an Islamic World, is holding it’s first United States conference in Chicago, the home of Hussein- go figure- they probably like the revolutionary ambience, even though the scent of pork runs through Chicago politics as pervasively as through the slaughterhouses nearby.

Hizb ut-Tahrir is a global Sunni network with reported ties to confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Al Qaeda in Iraq’s onetime leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It has operated discreetly in the U.S. for decades.

Now, it is coming out of the shadows and openly hosting a July 19 conference entitled, “The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam,” at a posh Hilton hotel in a suburb of Chicago.

Hizb ut-Tahrir insists that it does not engage in terrorism, and it is not recognized by the State Department as a known terror group.

But some terrorism experts say it may be even more dangerous than many groups that are on the terror list.


This is insane- this would be akin to the Communist Party holding a symposium on the “Fall of Capitalism” in say, New York, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I know, the “Liberals” won, but you might think they still love their country- a fact that is becoming much less clear with every day. If Homeland Security doesn’t flood this gathering with every agent it has at its disposal, then someone is engaged in traitorous activity at the highest levels. Here is why:

“Hizb ut-Tahrir is one of the oldest, largest indoctrinating organizations for the ideology known as jihadism,” Walid Phares, director of the Future of Terrorism Project at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told FOXNews.com.

Phares said that Hizb ut-Tahrir, rather than training members to carry out terrorist acts like Al Qaeda, focuses instead on indoctrinating youths between ages of 9 and 18 to absorb the ideology that calls for the formation of an empire — or “khilafah” — that will rule according to Islamic law and condones any means to achieve it, including militant jihad.

Hizb ut-Tahrir often says that its indoctrination “prepares the infantry” that groups like Al Qaeda take into battle, Phares said.

“It’s like a middle school that prepares them to be recruited by the high school, which is Al Qaeda,” he said. “One would compare them to Hitler youth. … It’s an extremely dangerous organization.”


Hitler youth, with a twist of jihad- smells a bit like teen spirit,doesn’t it? I am sure it is oh so innocent, as I know the Liberal pinheads will tell me. I am blowing this all out of proportion, they will say. Really? Will you stake your life and the lives of your friends and family on this? Will you stake the future of your country on this?

I am not willing to be so sanguine about this- this is another wedge that our enemies seek to drive into our side, just to see if they can, now that they have an arab- sounding “friend” in the White House. Just because we have a history of tolerance for other religions does NOT mean we need to roll over and show our belly when a religiously based terrorist sympathizer group wants to set up shop in our back yard.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is one of the group’s most famous alumni, New Statesman journalist Shiv Malik reported, citing intelligence sources. In addition to plotting the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, he also is implicated in the World Trade Center bombing of 1993, the Bali nightclub bombings and the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

Malik’s report, the public policy institute the Nixon Center and the counter-extremism think tank the Quilliam Foundation agree that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq until he was killed in June 2006, also was once a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir.

They say other former members include Asif Muhammad Hanif, a British man who blew himself up outside a bar in Tel Aviv, killing four people (including himself) and wounding more than 50; and Omar Bakri Mohammed, a radical cleric currently banned from Britain who praised the 9/11 attacks, raised funds for Hezbollah and Hamas and called for attacks on the Dublin airport because U.S. troops transfered there on their way to Iraq.

Segal said Hizb ut-Tahrir is becoming more active online in the U.S. — particularly on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace — and now it may be able to add a significant number of Americans to its ranks.


And because of all the liberals in our schools,not properly  teaching our students the subject of History, our children are NOT getting the proper background to enable them to recognize this threat for what it truly is- a blatant subversion of our people. This trend needs to be halted in its tracks, NOW. If not, then everyone will end up under an Islamic thumb, with our women wearing burkas, and not being allowed to drive or have other rights we all take for granted today,

You say this cannot happen, but if one looks at history, all it takes is forgetting for a moment that it CAN happen.

If we forget for one moment- if we do not have eternal vigilance, this can and will happen.

    Obama and the Dems will keep going until we are attacked again. In fact, I had a dream last night that Al-Qaeda bombed eastern Baltimore City and I was trying to get across town to my mom and family to be with them. The state police were filing children out of the schools in single file and roads were closed. I don’t know what it means, but I do know that God warns before a tragedy happens.

    Unfortunately, the Dems think the rest of the world is Sesame Street- no, REALLY- and that we can just all get along. Also, they do not care about the rest of the country, as they believe they alone will rise from the ashes.
    What arrogance- what ignorance.

    Let’s check and see what normal people think about this:

    “Who do you trust to do a better job handling the threat of terrorism — (Obama) or the (Republicans in Congress)?

    Obama: 55%

    Republicans in Congress: 34%
