Security Expert: 'Civilization Jihad' and Sharia Law Biggest Threats

By    |   Tuesday, 30 Jun 2015 08:17 PM

Fears of an Islamic State (ISIS) attack in the United States on Independent Day ignore the threat posed by the "global jihad movement" every single day, security expert Frank Gaffney tells Newsmax TV.

In an interview with Newsmax Hard Line host Ed Berliner on Tuesday, the founder and president of the Center for Security Policy said President Barack Obama's foreign policy has only "emboldened" violent terrorists.

"The global jihad movement — of which the Islamic State is just one part — is very much on the march," Gaffney said. "They've been emboldened by what they have seen out of this president, the wealth, the act of support that he has provided to groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and now jihadists of the Shiite stripe in the form of the Islamic Republic of Iran."

"I don't know that the Fourth of July is the most worrying date of all," he said. "Frankly, every day there is a greater and greater likelihood we'll see attacks. That one [day] just happens to have obvious symbolic value and therefore would play very much into the kind of effort that the Islamic State and others have made to use symbolic events or dates to intensify the attention to their actions."

Gaffney noted security steps will have to be taken against a possible attack on July 4, but he said what is more worrisome is "civilization jihad."

"We're a long way from being as prepared as we need to be… but I have to tell you, the part that worries me at least as much is something the Muslim Brotherhood has been engaged in for some 50 odd years," he warned. "They call it civilization jihad. It's a kind of stealthy, subversive effort and our country is certainly not even aware that's happening, let along steeled against it."

What America needs to do is "be as clear-eyed about the nature of the threat and its sources."

Gaffney said the "wellspring of this attack factor" are "jihadists, people who embrace and who believe that it is God's will that they act on this doctrine of Sharia, that they must impose it on all of us," he said.

"My greatest fear … is when you hear the FBI using these kinds of euphemisms, it certainly seems as though — and I think that jihadists understand this —we're not going to be as clear eyed about the nature of the threat and its sources and therefore almost certainly not looking as carefully as we need to in order to stop them from getting out of this."
