From her position on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., dared to question the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of our government – and because of it, her job may be in danger.

But Dr. Jamie Glazov, managing editor of Frontpagemag.com, and author of “United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror” and “High Noon for America: The Coming Showdown,” is coming to her defense, not only claiming that her concerns have been “vindicated” by recent events, but also leading the charge to keep her fearless questions before Congress.

As WND reported, Bachmann was among five outspoken Republicans who last year became a lightning rod for controversy after she pressed for an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence on the federal government and pointed to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, as a possible Brotherhood influence on U.S. policy.

At the time, Democrats and Republicans alike rushed to Abedin’s defense, and since then a petition boasting 178,000 signatures was created by the left-leaning People for the American Way, demanding House John Speaker Boehner boot Bachmann from her post on the Intelligence Committee.

“In service to ugly Islamophobic fear mongering,” the petition states, “Bachmann continues unabated in her unfounded and irresponsible attacks on dedicated public servants – a witch hunt that has targeted Huma Abedin, a key aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and now includes allegations that President Obama may be aiding the rise of global Shariah law.”

Glazov says the real witch hunt, however, has been the targeting of Bachmann for asking questions that might be hitting too close to the truth.

Therefore, Glazov is promoting a new counter-petition on FrontPageMag.com called “Stop the Islamist Witch Hunt Against Rep. Bachmann.” “Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is under attack for voicing concern over critical national security issues that no other elected leader wants to acknowledge, and now her position on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence may be at stake,” the petition states. “We must fight back. America needs Michele Bachmann and her fearless leadership keeping watch over our interests at home and abroad, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is the best place for her to fulfill this task.”

“In the long run,” conservative author David Horowitz added, “the battle that Michele Bachmann is waging on the House Intelligence Committee may be more important to the well-being and security of Americans than all the battles over budgets and debt ceilings combined.”

Sign the petition demanding Bachmann keep her position to ask the tough questions about Islamism in America.

Glazov was further interviewed by terrorism analyst for CBN News Erick Stakelbeck about the need for the counter-petition.

Glazov told Stakelbeck an Egyptian magazine has since named six Muslim Brotherhood infiltrators in the Obama administration, calling the article a “complete vindication” for Bachmann.

“One of the names she mentioned that she is concerned about is Mohammed Elibiary,” Glazov said. “This guy, Islamic cleric, is on the Homeland Security Advisory Council – what is he doing there?

“In 2004 he goes to give a speech at a night that is giving tribute to the Ayatollah Khomeini,” Glazov continued. “What is he doing there? [Khomeini] is an Islamist mass murderer. Imagine if one of us had been at a conference giving tribute to Adolf Hitler. Should we be in the government?”

As WND reported, the report Glazov mentioned comes from Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine, which on Dec. 22 said the six infiltrators turned the White House “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The Egyptian article was translated and reported by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, or IPT.

The article named Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, or MPAC; Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA; and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

Stakelbeck’s interview with Glazov can be seen below:

As WND reported, Abedin worked for an organization founded by her family that is effectively at the forefront of a grand Saudi plan to mobilize U.S. Muslim minorities to transform America into a strict Wahhabi-style Islamic state, according to an Arabic-language manifesto issued by the Saudi monarchy. Abedin also was a member of the executive board of the Brotherhood’s Muslim Student Association.Advocates for an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence on the U.S. government argued a simple reading of security clearance guidelines in reference to Huma Abedin’s family would warrant investigation.

The Muslim Brotherhood was established in the 1920s following the collapse of the Ottoman Turkish empire, with the intent of helping establish Islamic rule worldwide. Its stated goal for the U.S. is “a kind of grand jihad” aimed at “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within” so that “Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

    God bless you Michele Bachmann. America needs your honesty and integrity. keep on fighting the good fight.

    • Hasit Hemani

      It is really surprising that how it can happen in America when there are institutions like FBI and CIA.? Is US, politically more corrupt than India.? If it can happen in US it can happen anywhere. Its a matter of time that how long it will be for a complete take over or is it overtaken ? Was John Foster Dulles the last of his tribe ?

      • fanlad

        That is why our founders were wise beyond all time, they knew the fallen nature of human nature. That's why the enemies of our God given rights must take down the document that upholds this God given truth, the American Constitution.

    Rep Bachmann's struggle is OUR struggle; the west's and every patriot, regardless of locale. No exaggeration.

    Doing all I can, even from as far away as Israel – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/17/u-s-rep-miche

    Going to the mat for her is the least a patriot can do.

    Michele Bachmann has our full support! She is a true patriot!

  • JustMe

    This are very legitimate arguments here for supporting Michele Bachmann. It isn't helped by the executive branch's willful neglect to laws and yielding support of unethical support of diversity. Problem is that Bachmann raised these issues during the election season. Her motive isn't clean. Furthermore, she raked in millions through her efforts. She didn't deny the campaign funds raised through her publicity ploys.

    • Rifleman

      Since House elections are every even year, does that mean such issues must wait for odd years and the unnecessary damage ignored? That’s dereliction of duty.

      Even if your opinion of her motives were correct, I’ll still take someone doing the right thing for the wrong reasons over someone doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, every time.

  • Connelly Radbone

    I have jusr tried to give a contribution to the fund to help Michelle Bachman. I couldn't get through though as I live in Canada and your system isn't able to record my province isn't listed among the states and there is no other way to fill out the form. You do have some supporters who live in Canada.

  • Rifleman

    If the Republic is saved, not to mention the GOP, it will be by Tea Partiers like Bachman, not by perpetual suckers like Boehner and Mitchell. They won’t fight for the Republic, or us, only for their own positions and power, which shows they’ve been there too long.

    The dp/msm has such contempt for Boehner’s and Mitchell’s effectiveness, and the threat they represent to their agenda, they hardly even bother to target them. The dp/left make it obvious who they fear, by who they focus their attacks and hatred.

  • JacksonPearson

    Michele Bachmann hit a home run with her letter on the Muslim Brotherhood. She was absolutely correct.

  • marios

    M. Bachmann is Patriot, courageous Congresswoman with Principles like Founding Fathers had. According such agressive dem's reaction M. Bachmann doubt is correct. They are afraid any investigation on their link to Islamic terrorists, Nowadays Dem's party are traitor and collaborators of Islamists. Obama if judge him by his deeds is MB proxy. What WH and his accomplices doing all 4 years is treason of the State. But spineless Rep's are making them to be successful. Instead defend their courageous colleague they betrayed her. Obama and Dem's never give up their people but Rep's…. Hope all Frontpagemag fan and visitors already signed petition and spread it to their friend, relatives, etc. We should call our Representatives and Senators even they happened to be Dem's as they should know that voters for M. Bachmann. See how organized leftists and we have to overrun them. We should act. G-d help M. Bachmann and our country!

  • Ghostwriter

    Recently,an Egyptian magazine repeated some of the same allegations that Rep. Bachmann had said. What do her opponents say to that?

  • geneww1938

    Pray for her and her family! Pray for her wisdom, health, endurance, strength and most of all the Blessing from God.

    Satan hates her and will rally all allies to cause harm and pain to her and the ones she loves.

    She is a true patriot and has already withstood unbelievable abuse from the RINOs and those who claimed conservatism.

  • edgineer1

    Rep. Bachman is a voice for the common people, and the establishment Republicans and Democrats dearly want to silence that voice. We desperately need more politicians like her.

  • SoCalMike

    Of course McCain threw the Democrats a life line and came out against Bachman.
    Manchurian McCain does it again like clockwork.
