Ex-FBI Agent: US Islamic Groups 'Core Part' of Terror Threat

By    |   Thursday, 12 Feb 2015 05:15 PM

A former FBI agent who's been denounced as a religious bigot by Muslim organizations and the ACLU tells Newsmax TV that supposedly mainstream and peaceful Islamic organizations in North America are, in fact, "a core part" of the global jihadist terror movement targeting the West.

And mainline Christian and Jewish groups, "out of either naiveté or a willingness, or just gross ignorance … are working with organizations that are easily identifiable as Hamas-Muslim Brotherhood organizations," John Guandolo, who writes a blog called "Understanding the Threat," told "MidPoint" host Ed Berliner on Thursday.

Guandolo is a controversial figure who left the FBI under a cloud and since then has been called an "Islamophobe" for the content of counterterrorism seminars he gives to local law enforcement agencies.

On Thursday, Guandolo repeated his charge that terrorism is at the root of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — "the primary three organizations that control the interfaith dialogue with the Muslim community in the United States and North America in general, including in Canada," he said.

"When you talk to CAIR, you're talking to Hamas," said Guandolo, who said that his charge is supported by documentation in the federal criminal court case against Sabri Benkhala, a paintball enthusiast from suburban Washington, D.C., who was convicted in 2007 of lying to authorities about his terrorist ties.

CAIR officials appear regularly in the media, including Newsmax TV, to defend Islam as a peaceful religion and to promote Muslims' civil rights.

But Guandolo said: "There is evidence over the last 20-some years that demonstrates that CAIR was actually created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee, which is Hamas. And yes, CAIR is a Hamas organization, and Hamas is a designated terrorist organization, so of course they are supporting the jihad both here in the United States and internationally."

He said that CAIR, ISNA and ICNA aren't simply "helping" fan anti-Western jihadist terrorism, "they're a core part" of it.

"The evidence is the founders of CAIR, all three of them, have been identified as members of Hamas of the United States," he said.

Guandolo defied anybody to disprove his thesis and he said that former high-ranking government officials at the Justice Department and the CIA agree with him.
