Influence: The Muslim Brotherhood in America

Meet Laila Alawa, the 25-Year old Syrian Immigrant on DHS Advisory Council Who Wants to Curb Your Speech Rights

"I can’t deal with people saying America is the best nation in the world. Be critical," she tweets.

The freedom of speech includes the right to offend others, or else speech would be contingent upon the views of those in power and with the most influence (*does not mean it’s virtuous to say anything one wants). Unfortunately, there are people who want to outlaw certain speech. Typically, these are individuals on the political left, especially when it comes to saying anything they deem as ‘Islamophobic.’ Laila Alawa is one such individual.

Alawa is a 25-year-old Syrian immigrant who is not afraid of provocation and expressing her opinions, even if they are blatantly racist and anti-American. Some examples of her radical tweets include:

9/11 changed the world for good, and there’s no other way to say it. I just hope we keep having open conversations about our differences.

#afterseptember11 Being American meant you were white. And my immigrant self suddenly started fighting for the right to be just as American.

I can’t deal with people saying America is the best nation in the world. Be critical. Be conscious. Don’t be idiots.

THE US HAS NEVER BEEN A UTOPIA UNLESS YOU WERE A STRAIGHT WHITE MALE THAT OWNED LAND. straight up period go home shut up

Also I can’t wait until @TheBachelor has a man or woman be the star of the show that isn’t pure white. Or “prettily mixed.”

Because, Ya know, @TheBachelor, white people in America? They’re not gonna be dominant majority for much longer.

Worse yet, this active social media personality is also influencing U.S. national security. In 2015, Alawa received her American citizenship and also became one of fifteen individuals serving on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, Countering Violent Extremism Subcommittee. So, we have an individual who wants to undermine our country and the freedoms it protects, giving advice to our Department of Homeland Security.

The whole Countering Violent Extremism terminology is based upon a false narrative. The intention of it is to divorce terrorism done in the name of Islam from the religion as a whole, thus negating the term “Islamic terrorism.” This appeals to the Left’s description of Islam as a religion of peace; thereby, any violence conducted with Islamic justification is not genuinely Islamic.

The subcommittee Alawa is a part of recently released a report exhorting DHS to “adapt to the changing nature of violent extremism itself” by giving greater consideration to “anarchists, sovereign citizens, white-supremacists, and others.” It’s not surprising that someone who espouses racist sentiment like Alawa would want to divert attention away from herself and go after predominantly white radicals. It also effectively shifts the attention away from radical Islam to other Right-wing fringe groups who pose less of a threat to U.S. security. The New America Foundation’s drones database compares the total number of “Violent Jihadist Attacks” to “Far Right Wing Attacks” on U.S. soil since 9/11. The number of jihadist attacks almost doubles those of right wing extremists 94 to 48. Even though critics might say the recent Orlando shooting which killed 49 people skews the results; however, if we add in the death count from 9/11 there wouldn’t even be a serious comparison. Furthermore, according to a December 2015 Pew Research article “Muslims make up just less than 1% of the U.S. adult population[,]” revealing how a small segment of the population (roughly a fraction of 1%) causes so much death and destruction to America. It also shows how dedicated and strategic jihadists are with their global network of terror. So much for jihadism being an overblown threat.

The report from the subcommittee suggested to DHS to counter violent extremism: “Focus on gender diversity of youth through careful attention to the range of push and pull factors that attract individuals of differing gender.” This gives liberal educators a prime opportunity to indoctrinate kids with their view of what extremism is and isn’t, and further promote biased cultural sensitivity training. The subcommittee’s report also advised DHS to start “using American English instead of religious, legal and cultural terms like ‘jihad,’ ‘sharia,’ ‘takfir‘ or ‘umma‘” in regards to terrorism in order to not be offensive to Muslims. Such politically correct terminology would handicap DHS from investigating Islamic terrorists since they couldn’t even use the terrorist’s own vocabulary. Individuals such as Alawa are creeping into positions of power within public policy. Their intent includes: restricting criticism of the Muslim community, hindering our government and law enforcement’s ability to go after jihadists, and reiterating false narratives that seek to redirect government resources towards combatting Right-wing extremism instead of the bigger threat in Islamic terrorism. Sounds similar to the ‘civilization jihad’ of the Muslim Brotherhood (“…eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within…”). Still not convinced? Just take a look at some more of Alawa’s tweets:

We are living in a country that deems it ‘freedom of speech’ to spew absolutely hateful ish about Muslims. That’s not freedom of speech.

LailaAlawaIntolerant-620x110

You can’t say something intolerant and not expect consequences. Not on my watch.

How the h[#]ll is the sh[#]t @PamelaGeller is spewing “free speech”? It’s straight up warmongering hate speech. It’s xenophobia.

hey, um, go f[#]ck you
