"The phenomenon of Muslim extremists emanating from the United States is not a reaction to U.S. Middle East policy, or the failure to effectively assimilate Muslim immigrants.
It is the culmination of a 51‐year‐long campaign by foreign subversives to undermine the United States and its Western cultural orientation."
"Homegrown terrorists constitute 81% of the defendants alleged to be involved in the top 50 plots prosecuted in the United States since 9/11, over half of whom were also born here.
A steady diet of Muslim Brotherhood programmed sedition, self‐victimization, hate speech, supremacist attitudes and imagined persecution instills a revolutionary fervor that creates homegrown extremists."
CFNS Task Force on the Muslim Brotherhood: Activity on Capitol Hill
Just recently CFNS Chairman, Dr. William Saxton met with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) for a follow-up briefing on the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). Rep. Ros-Lehtinen, who is Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has been overseeing legislation that includes current and potential amendments aimed at designating the Muslim Brotherhoodas a foreign terrorist organization (FTO). She had received a copy of CFNS's research on "Homegrown Jihad in the USA" during CFNS's MB briefing on Capitol Hill last summer, and there had been a number of meetings and exchanges in the interim between CFNS and her committee members and staffers regarding these amendments, leading up to last week's meeting.
On another congressional front, CFNS has just submitted its final Position Statement on EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) to Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) in support of his legislation, H.R. 668. Known as the SHIELD Act, this bill provides for the protection of America'sinfrastructure prior to an EMP attack, and for the continuation of adequate public services if one occurs. This is a vital national security issue.
Last year over 100 people crowded into a Capitol Hill room in the Rayburn House Office Building designed for 75 to hear CFNS co-Founder Dr. Peter Leitner reveal the first report of its kind about the fifty-year infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the United States and its culmination in homegrown Jihad. The event immediately made waves, with parts of the presentation quickly airing on YouTube, and others being covered in print that week. As a result, CFNS has walked onto the national stage and is now certainly recognized as a leading American citizens organization in the battle against Islamist terrorism!
Congressman Allen West, who sponsored the DC briefing, introduced the program with an expression of praise and unequivocal support for CFNS. In the audience were reporters and cameramen from Fox News and CBN, journalists representing more than ten different online news sites, senior staff from over two dozen members of the House and Senate, officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the military, and representatives from a wide variety of Washington think tanks and lobbying organizations.
Following CFNS Chairman Dr. William Saxton's overview of CFNS, Dr. Leitner used a riveting PowerPoint presentation to outline the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood and the organizations it supports in the United States. He minced no words in systematically setting forth descriptions of the MB's founders, the current leaders, the ideology, and its U.S. infiltration plan. He also announced the unprecedented development of CFNS's proprietary database of almost 6000 individuals associated with the MB in the U.S. and the approximately 200 organizations with which they are involved.
Attendees hardly moved during Peter's one-hour talk! A spirited question and answer session followed right up to the time when the room was needed for another event.
In all, it was a landmark day for CFNS!
The positive results of this extraordinarily successful Capitol Hill event will continue to grow. A highly anticipated database has been created which contains names of thousands of individuals in the United States who are associated with approximately 200 Muslim Brotherhood organizations. Our announcement at the DC briefing that it would soon be available on a need-to-know basis to responsible parties has already sparked a great deal of controversy - and demand!
In addition, as a result of the event itself and the impression it made on those attending, CFNS leadership has subsequently established some very valuable relationships with key members of Congress and leading journalists. These ties will undoubtedly lead to furthering our goals.
