FP: David Gaubatz, welcome to Frontpage Interview. Congrats on your book, Muslim Mafia.

I would like to talk to you today about how CAIR and other Islamic organizations deceive the public.

But first, give us some updates on your work and what is going on.

Gaubatz: Thank you Jamie. I owe thanks to the WND staff at all levels, to Paul Sperry (co-author), and to all of the researchers who worked on this CAIR project.  Without them, the book would not exist.

On Dec. 1, 2009, I was asked to speak at the National Security Roundtable, hosted by Ronni Shalit, in NY.  The trip to NY was a pleasure and it was an honor to speak to such a well informed group of people.  The group consisted of people from many professions, including law enforcement, attorneys, bankers, and many more.  What I am beginning to see is that Americans are becoming more informed of national security issues and they are no longer simply sitting back and expecting our elected officials to insure our nation is secured.  Americans are beginning to insist that our nation be secured.

We have a very, very valuable commodity in our country, as does every country: our children.  It is apparent Americans are no longer going to rely on elected officials (many who wittingly and some unwittingly) who support the interests of Islamic based terrorist organizations more than they do our troops and our country.  The message to politicians who support terrorist groups either from being uninformed, naïve, incompetent, or intentionally (like Congressman Keith Ellison (MN) and Senator Larry Shaw (NC) is either do your job (protect our children from Islamic based terrorism) or leave office.  You are no longer wanted.

FP: What do you think, is the state of New York better protected than before Sept. 11, 2001?

Gaubatz: For a few months after the murder of thousands of people by Islamic terrorists, the people of NY came together. Unfortunately it did not take long before many forgot what happened in their city, what is happening to our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, and what has been happening (terrorist attacks) to the people of Israel for many years.  Many have again fallen into the trap of a false sense of security.  Anytime a city or state allows people to openly declare they are seeking the destruction of our country and are calling for violence against innocent Christians and Jews in their theological texts, no location is safe.

I am not an attorney, but as an American I do not believe our U.S. Constitution was designed for allowing treason, sedition, and calling for killing our citizens.  Our Constitution was designed to protect our country.

FP: How can our law enforcement effectively and timely protect our country from future attacks?

Gaubatz: We have a long educational process of our law enforcement and politicians ahead of us. This has to happen before we can truly realize any steps forward in protecting our country.  Few understand Sharia law (Islamic law) and they can’t rely on organizations such as CAIR, ISNA, MSA, and the host of other terror supporters to explain to them what Sharia law actually means in regards to the protection of our country.

FP: So tell us a bit about Sharia law.

Gaubatz: Sharia law covers every minute of every day of a person’s life in Islam.  Of course there are many peaceful aspects of Sharia, but as the 17 year old Rifqa Bary and many others have tried to inform people, Sharia law also has many violent aspects which can no longer be ignored.  Sharia law is an all or nothing. A Muslim can’t decide (and be in conformance with Islamic law) that they want to abide by some aspects and ignore other aspects such as death for apostasy or calling for hatred and violence against Christians and Jews.

Islamic scholars and many Imams will be the first to tell you (and they do so in their materials/lectures) that even if one does not have the ability to perform an aspect of Sharia; they must at least have it in their heart and a desire to comply with mandatory Sharia obligations. Of course there are millions of Muslims who do not want violence or hatred, but according to such Islamic leaders as Imam Siraj Wahhaj, Zaid Shakir, Ahmad Sakr, and many more operating in the U.S., these Muslims are ‘non-practicing’ Muslims.  CAIR and ISNA executives endorse these scholars as well.  Many people do not realize that numerous Islamic centers and mosques in America will not allow CAIR to advocate its ideology at their centers.

People should begin to understand that CAIR has approximately 5100 members out of 1.5 to 8 million Muslims in America.  CAIR is strong because it utilizes its manpower of foreign funding wisely.  CAIR does not truly help the Muslim people who actually need its assistance, CAIR represents the Muslim Brotherhood and therefore utilize their resources to intimidate, threaten, extort, and blackmail U.S. corporations and people to conform to their ideology. CAIR further spends hundreds of thousands operating a media PR machine to influence our law enforcement and politicians.

FP: Ok, let’s focus in on some specifics of how the Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR, ISNA, MANA, etc,) intentionally deceives law enforcement and public officials.

Gaubatz: Two quick examples. Both pertain to prayers. One was the ‘Flying Imam case’ in which several Imams began praying loudly at an airport and then caused disruptions on a plane.  This was merely a ‘hoax’ in order for the Imams to instill fear into the public, and by later suing the airlines and threatening the innocent people who reported their suspicious activities. This tactic by Islamic leaders and CAIR (Muslim Brotherhood) in regards to terrorism is called a ‘conditioning process’. One is simply ‘softening’ their enemy to conform to later demands.

CAIR officials know that within Islam there is no requirement for a loud prayer which causes disturbances when in the ‘mode’ of traveling.  Performing prayers while traveling is mentioned numerous times in Islamic articles, manuals, and essentially means when a Muslim is in the mode of traveling they can shorten their prayers, conduct them in silence, and/or perform them later (more convenient time). , Fiqh Us Sunnah, Tafsir Ibn Kathir, and numerous other references are available to provide more clarification.

FP: Do you believe the ‘Flying Imam Suit’ crossed any boundaries into criminal activity?

Gaubatz: Of course. These Imams were well trained. They all knew they had no obligation to pray in the airport or on the aircraft. They were in the mode of travel.  The imams and CAIR should be prosecuted for their actions. This is another form of setting up and again conditioning not only the public, but aircrew personnel, and even law enforcement to ignore such obvious disruptions in the future. Again CAIR, the Imams, and anyone who provided support during this conspiracy to disrupt airline travel (safety) should be prosecuted.

FP: Give us some more examples of “conditioning” tactics used by CAIR and other Islamic leaders to deceive the public.

Gaubatz: Well, there’s the current CAIR hoax being played in Maine pertaining to a young girl in school who CAIR and others say must be given a separate room to pray.

First, there are no obligations for a female or male child to perform anything other than a silent prayer while away from their home or mosque.  There are numerous clear discussions by Islamic scholars on this issue and from ones endorsed by CAIR and the ISNA.

CAIR knows that there is no expectation of an employer or public school administrator to set aside space or time for prayer.  The prayers, if conducted, can be combined with an earlier or later prayer after school/work, or if they are considered to be in travel mode they are authorized to shorten the prayer or not conduct one at all.  CAIR has intimidated many employers to allow time for worshippers during Friday’s Jummah prayer, but there are no requirements on children to even attend the mosque (specifically females).

FP: Could you provide us with some evidence of how CAIR officials are intentionally deceiving school administrators and even law enforcement in these areas?

Gaubatz: Yes. CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece Ibrahim Hooper explained this to our researchers on more than one occasion during the research project.  Hooper himself often used the ‘traveling’ rule to ignore conducting prayers when he was with my researchers.  Islamic terrorists and their supporters do not recognize weakness. Now is a prime opportunity for law enforcement and prosecutors to charge the Imams, CAIR, and others who have conspired to disrupt air travel (federal) and the safety of innocent people.  In addition, school administrators should refuse to comply with CAIR in regards to prayers (other than silent) at public schools, and in no case authorize separate praying rooms.  The old saying ‘give an inch and they will take a mile’ is applicable here.  We have to deny terrorists more opportunities to later attack innocent people.  We need to stop their actions now or we will suffer later.

During my research of many Islamic Centers, the Imams and others would often refer me to one of their 3500 plus websites (many designed and ran by a respected Islamic Scholar Yusef Estes and his assistants). is one such site he and other Islamic readers refer Muslims to for guidance on Islamic rulings.  A Muslim student asked a question about prayer at school and this is what the scholar and ISNA advised: One will notice only adult males are required to even attend Jummah prayer:

“Dear questioner, thank you very much for having confidence in us, and we hope our efforts, which are purely for Allah’s Sake, meet your expectations.

Friday prayer is mandatory on every Muslim male who is adult, healthy and free. Every Muslim should strive hard to perform it on time unless something beyond his capacity disrupts that. Muslim students in the West can modulate their schedule in order to be able to perform Friday prayer in its appointed time. They can gather together, even in the campus and perform the Friday prayer, which demonstrate unity and co-operation.”

In his response to the question, Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, former president of the Islamic Society of North America, states the following:

“Friday prayer is obligatory on every Muslim man who is adult, healthy and free. It should not be missed unless there is a real excuse. Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an: O you who believe when the call for Friday prayer is given then hurry to the remembrance of Allah and leave all business. This is better for you, if you know. (Al-Jumu’ah: 9)

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, is reported to have said, Those who neglect three Friday prayers without any excuse may have their hearts sealed with hypocrisy.’”

The time for Friday prayer is the same as the time for Dhur prayer, that is from noon until the mid-afternoon (i.e. the time for ‘Asr prayer).

According to Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal, Friday prayer can also be prayed before noon. The minimum of worshippers required to hold Friday prayer is only three. So if there are three Muslims at some place and they find it difficult to join a larger Jama’ah for Friday they can have their own prayer. I have mentioned these points to emphasize the importance of Friday prayer and the flexibility in performing it.

Muslim students in high schools, colleges and universities can organize their own prayers according to the convenience of their class schedule. Also, if your school does not have three or more Muslim students to hold your own Friday prayer at your school, then try to change your class schedule from the beginning of the school year. I have seen some students take early classes in one period in order to be able to attend Friday prayer at the Masjid. Make an effort to perform this prayer. There is a great reward and blessings from Allah in this prayer, you will feel the blessings throughout your week.

If for some reasons you are unable to perform Friday prayer, then pray Dhur instead. But this should not be done on a regular basis. It is an option for necessity only. May Allah bless you and help you to remember Him and make your prayers on time.”

FP: David Gaubatz, thank you for taking the time out to speak with us.

Gaubatz: Thanks Jamie.

    From this article…

    “I am not an attorney, but as an American I do not believe our U.S. Constitution was designed for allowing treason, sedition, and calling for killing our citizens. Our Constitution was designed to protect our country.”

    FP: “How can our law enforcement effectively and timely protect our country from future attacks?”

    From an American observer….

    I for one…believe in this day and age – that class action law suits is what it will take.

    Getting the American public to know that they have a great case against Islam (Using the U.S. Constitution)….well, that is yet to be seen.

    The first step is in education the American public in the laws of Islam and how it VIOLATES U.S. law.

    Once that fact is established……let the class-action law suits fly……Righteously.

    The ambition of Islam to conquer the world.
    For centuries Islam of the militants have been on the march to conquer the world. We did not notice because we chose not to notice. The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in
    1920 by Hassan al-Banna in Egypt and was in deep confrontation with the Egyptian government. The current goals for Islam to achieve global domination for a Muslim Caliphate: a world under strict Islamic “Sharia” law, pulling Muslims back to the 7th Century. Consult :

    Every American should know the truth

    No one should miss this video:

    Wake up America, every practician of sharia loving islam is plotting against you and has an agenda to defeat you, if you snooze, you will………..

  • josephwiess

    It is time the CAIR be investigated under the RICO act and then shut down. Since CAIR is taking money from foreign operatives, in order to transform our nation into a Muslim Hell, then it should be an open and shut case.

    Even if the FBI doesn't want to investigate these terrorists, then they should be shut down due to the fact that Sharia law is incompatible with the US Constitution, and is contrary to our laws.

  • Steve

    The War on Terror will never be won if we do not recognize the enemy for what it Just as CAIR is a front for Hamas (or any other such organization), so is Hamas a front for violent and radical Islam which is out to destroy Western civilization. Unfortunately, even non-violent Muslims to a large degree are in sympathy with the Jihadis, even though they may not take up arms against us. Let's always remember that Islam divides the world into two entities — the House of Islam and the House of War. Until we know who we are fighting, we are only shadow boxing and the rest is encroaching Sharia.

    In certain muslim societies young 9 year girls first menstual blood is given as a gift to the older husbands. It is said that blood cloth is worn around the husband penis for 3 days prior to the marriage to bear him strong children. It is believed the holy prophet Mohammed did this custom back then with Aisha his 6 year old bride.

  • USMCSniper

    Both the ACLU and CAIR wanted the United States to try September 11 attacks mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, as well as four other 9/11 terror plotters, in New York City. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was instructed directly by President Barack Obama to do this travesty.

    What is going to happen is going to be worse than a circus. First the terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will fire his lawyers and respresent himself, demand that Muslims be on the jury, that he had his civil rights violated, and the trial will be all about his alleged torture of 183 drops of water, and the evil Bush-Cheney administration – and there will be a hung jury and he will never be executed!

  • No Dhimmi

    That scumbag Ibrahim Hooper needs to be tried for treason. What a classless piece of garbage that guy is. How he can live with his ugly Islamist self is beyond me.

    There are few people lower than Ibrahim Hooper, a traitor to the United States and human civilization. Try him for treason now! That would send a big message to these other foul creatures trying to enslave us under their sick cult of death.

    I hope you read this, Hooper, you sleazy traitor.

    WHY are Ohio Authorities Acting as if America is a MUSLIM NATION where non-Muslims have no rights?

    Terrified 17-year-old Rifqa Bary who fled from being honor killed by her family must NEVER be returned to her parents in Ohio! Never sent back to Sri Lanka! Rifqa left Islam and the punishment for leaving Islam is death!

    Ohio authorities to whom Rifqa has been returned from Florida where she fled for safety, are punishing frightened Rifqa – not allowing her to use the internet or use the phone! Secretly holding hearings and deliberately isolating this young girl from her friends and the many people who are deeply concerned about her safety and want to help her.

    A hearing has been set for Dec. 22nd for the charges filed against Rifqa by her parents for being “unruly” and ungovernable”. It is NOT allowed to leave Islam!

    Ohio state has filed no charges against Rifqa's father for his beatings of Rifqa. Has the law been eliminated against parents beating their children, or has the law been re-written that the law applies to everyone except Muslims?

    Why are Ohio authorities acting as if America is a Muslim country???

    Rifqa Bary: Sharia in America

  • LindaRivera

    British police and the organizations in Britain who help victims such as Rifqa, would be shocked and horrified at American authorities' cruel treatment of Rifqa.

    Ending the silence on 'honour killing'
    I wish I could get involved with the support groups and help but you know, I'm just a coward.”

    Having first walked out of an abusive marriage at the age of 17 and then from a hostile family who had had a meeting to discuss whether or not she should die, Zena does not lack courage but she is still very scared.
    She has every reason to be. Her Bangladeshi-born mother had suggested that Zena might be allowed to poison herself rather than be murdered for bringing shame on the family.

    “I'm sorry to be so cloak-and-dagger but you never know what they might be capable of, I know there are plenty of young men who would love to play bounty hunter just for a bit of kudos in the community.”

    Police estimate at least 12 are dying each year in the UK but others will be hidden – forced suicides and murders made to look like suicide are widely believed to take place undetected. Women aged 16-24 from Pakistani, Indian and Bangladeshi backgrounds are three times more likely to kill themselves than the national average for that age and it is impossible to tell what pressures some must have been under.

    When it opened its helpline in April 2008, Karma Nirvana received 4,000 calls in the first year and is now taking 300 calls a month from people under threat of honour-based violence, often linked to forced marriage.

    After the government's forced marriage unit was set up in April last year, it received 5,000 calls and rescued 400 victims in the first six months.

    They also face being hunted down, said Detective Chief Inspector Gerry Campbell of the Metropolitan police. “It's not uncommon to have bounty hunters out hunting down young people who have left forced marriages or fled from a family where they are at risk. It's rare for [one person] to take unilateral action, it's all done in consultation and there is logistical support and collusion in the extended community,” he said.

    …Banaz Mahmod, who made contact with police five times to say she thought her life was in danger but always drew back from pressing charges. Banaz, 19, a Kurd, was murdered by family members at her home in Mitcham, Surrey, in 2006.

    She had been raped and beaten by the older man she had been forced to marry, and had left him. Her elder sister, Bekhal, had also left home to escape their father's violence and the extended family was beginning to regard Mahmod Mahmod as a man who had lost control of his daughters. The shame became so unbearable that he held a meeting to discuss killing his daughter and her new boyfriend.

    “I'm confident that no victim will ever be turned away in London and that officers know that to do nothing is not an option.

    “Honour is about a collection of practices used by the family to control behaviour, to prevent perceived shame, but there's no honour in murder, rape, or kidnapping and with 25% of the [cases] we are seeing involving a person under 18: this is a child abuse issue too. The simple message is: If you do this you will be caught and brought to justice.

    The behaviour of women seen to have dishonoured their families can be as harmless as wearing make-up or talking to boys. One suspected murder is believed to have been caused by a girl having a love song dedicated to her on a community radio show.

    Diana Nammi, who runs the Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation in London: For someone to be killed for their make-up or clothes or having a boyfriend or for refusing to accept a forced marriage is so brutal and unacceptable.

    In Pakistan the practice of honour killing – called karo-kari – sees more than 10,000 women die each year.

    For Zena, she has her life but does not have her freedom. “When I first ran away I would go to the library and read loads of spy books to pick up tips. You have to teach yourself how to best keep hidden,” she said. “My life is about keeping a very low profile now and about looking over my shoulder, but at least I know I am alive and I grieve for those poor girls who are not.”

    Prime Minister of Turkey Erdogan, publicly read an Islamic poem: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and Muslims our soldiers…”

    Jihadists are winning because of pro-Islam Western leaders. U.S. Airport Security Deliberately and Shockingly Destroyed for Islam:
    Controversial Muslim group
    gets VIP airport security tour
    Feds show CAIR latest screening steps,
    sensitive counterterrorism procedures
    August 18, 2006

    The Department of Homeland Security
    took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines.

    On June 21, a senior DHS official from Washington personally guided Muslim officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations on a behind-the-scenes tour of Customs screening operations at O'Hare International Airport in response to CAIR complaints that Muslim travelers were being unfairly delayed as they entered the U.S. from abroad.

    CAIR is a spin-off of the Islamic Association for Palestine, identified by two former FBI counterterrorism chiefs as a “front group” for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

    Several CAIR leaders have been convicted on terror-related charges.

    During the airport tour, CAIR was taken on a walk through the point-of-entry, Customs stations, secondary screening and interview rooms. In addition, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents were asked to describe for CAIR representatives various features of the high-risk passenger lookout system.

    Council on American-Islamic Relations: “Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” – Omar Ahmad (CAIR co-founder).

    Addressing a youth session at the 1999 Islamic Association for Palestine's annual convention in Chicago, CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) founder Omar Ahmad praised suicide bombers who “kill themselves for Islam,”
