Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Dave Gaubatz, the first U.S. civilian (1811) Federal Agent deployed to Iraq in 2003. He is the owner of DG Counter-terrorism Publishing. He is currently conducting a 50 State Counter-terrorism Research Tour (CTRT). He is the co-author (with Paul Sperry) of the new book, Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America. He can be contacted at [email protected].
FP: Dave Gaubatz, congrats on Muslim Mafia.
I would like to talk to you today about Enemy Combatants on U.S. territory.
Let’s begin with what you have found being preached throughout the United States within Islamic mosques and centers etc.
Gaubatz: Jamie, I have reviewed over 5000 books, DVDs, pamphlets, videos, magazines and other literature provided at Islamic Centers and/or recommended by Muslims living throughout America. The material is distributed/sold to Muslims to assist them in fulfilling their faith to Allah and adhere to “Pure Islam”. There are many who choose not to abide by all aspects of Sharia law, but Imams and Islamic scholars I have talked with will be the first to say these people are Muslims in name only.
FP: Ok, so are there Enemy Combatants on American Soil?
Gaubatz: The young innocent 17 year former Muslim girl (Rifqa Bary) tried to answer this question but her warnings were ignored. Also Major Hasan (Ft. Hood) did answer this question and our military found out – in the most tragic way – that we are very vulnerable to attack from within.
Imam Siraj Wahhaj, from Brooklyn, NY, clarified our current situation with a statement he made in one of his numerous anti-American and Jihadist lectures during the late 1990s. “The Muslims in America are the most strategically placed Muslims in the whole world. America can’t bomb them like they can in Iraq.”
I have listened to hundreds of hours of Wahhaj lectures, have conducted first-hand research at his mosque in Brooklyn, have attended his lectures in Atlanta, GA, and in VA. I am very confident Wahhaj and anyone who supports him (CAIR) is involved in supporting Islamic terror groups. Wahhaj laughs behind the backs of our politicians and law enforcement because they are so easy to manipulate.
Of course many news organizations and politicians are still ignoring the threats, but I ask people: Do you love our country and put allegiance to our country first? If you ignore the truth and put innocent people’s lives in jeopardy, and jeopardize the security of our country, where do you really stand on your love of this nation? News journalists and politicians can only have two reasons for ignoring the realities of Ft. Hood:
1. They are naïve and do not understand the Islamic terrorist ideology of using violence against innocent people.
2. They care more about political correctness and winning the next election than they do about our children’s future and our country.
FP: In your view, how are our elected leaders and law enforcement officials doing in protecting our country from Islamic terror groups?
Gaubatz: Can we control our borders, immigration, or prevent an attack from Islamic Jihadists on a large U.S. military base? No. So how could a politician or law enforcement officer inform the American people we are being protected? If they said this, then they are simply lying to the American people and giving them a false sense of security. A false sense of security leads to the death of innocent people. It is also important for people to understand the following:
Islamic Jihadists use not only the hand, but the pen and tongue to engage their enemies in combat. Jihadist groups are winning in America, and they are conducting their activities on American soil. Our law enforcement, many conservative organizations, and the public are terrorized by the fear of potential lawsuits and potential for becoming the target of Wahhaj or CAIR.
Non-Muslims and Muslims who do not condone the Jihadist ideology are for the most part intimidated by Islamic scholars and Islamic organizations to remain silent, or they become their targets. Most professionals who work on counter-terrorism issues also understand few will stand behind them when they become the targets. Most law enforcement officers know their management will not support them when an Islamic organization begins making allegations, they obtain liberal media support, and threaten with lawsuits and ‘smear campaigns’. They and any American who openly opposes these organizations will for the most part be left out to defend themselves.
Enemy Combatants who use weapons (to include pen and tongue) against America do not respect weakness. Our country and its leadership are showing signs of weakness. I have recently heard from many Americans (to include our courageous law enforcement) that they are afraid to be labeled by an Islamic organization as an Islamophobic, hate monger, racist, fear monger, or any other number of words Jihadists and their supporters use when they can’t fight the truth.
FP: Then what can and must we do?
Gaubatz: Americans must again become strong and disregard the false accusations made by Jihadists. The truth in this case is that there is, without a shadow of a doubt, Enemy Combatants residing in America and the intent of such people/organizations is to destroy America from within. What is the difference? CAIR and Wahhaj have Saudi support (billions of dollars and other resources). CAIR and Wahhaj have many elected officials and senior LE department heads in their back pockets.
Americans must become strong and also support other Americans when they become targets of the Enemy Combatants, and begin putting the Enemy Combatants on the defensive. Every time they begin to ‘step out of line’ with anti-American propaganda and begin advocating Jihadist ideology (Sharia law) that are consistent with Enemy Combatants in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, or Afghanistan, we must double the use of our pen, tongue and take legal action against them. We must either shut them down, or continue to live in fear.
When you become terrorized in your own home or country by Islamic terrorist supporters, you are losing. We have become weak on our own soil and allowed the ideological aspects of Sharia law to slowly creep into our country. Why would Enemy Combatants even bother attacking our homeland in 9⁄11 style when they are winning and gaining the momentum and objectives they desire with their stealth jihad? We will suffer smaller scaled attacks such as Ft. Hood because Islamic terrorist groups do want to remind the American people we are vulnerable and they can attack even our children if they desire.
FP: Final thoughts?
Gaubatz: All I can say is either you support me (and millions of Americans who agree) or support Islamic based terrorist groups and their supporters.
I would like to end Jamie by asking Americans to be careful who and what ‘self described’ investigative journalists they take as being true journalists. An example is TPMmuckraker’s Justin Elliot. TPMMuckraker is simply a group of tabloid liberals who have no clue how to conduct investigative journalism. Recently I ‘toyed’ with Elliot to prove this point. For years I have informed people in my various writings that my blog articles are primary used to ‘bait’ people like CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper and poor journalists like Elliot.
Last week I put a small article on my blog about conducting field research in NC and describing the resources required. Elliot took the bait and ran. Americans should review my blog (www.daveg.us) and/or review the book Muslim Mafia and ask themselves why ‘reporters’ like Elliot will not write about incriminating evidence about CAIR that is backed with supporting documentation. Instead they go for the tabloid ‘stories’. Why?
Because they lack talent to write a real article and two because they support Islamic terrorist groups and their supporters like CAIR more than they do veterans who have served their country and fought in wars for people of all races and religions. The sad thing Jamie is that many politicians and educated people really believe the hundreds of TPMmuckracker tabloid sites. While Elliot and like terrorist supporters were focused on my ‘alleged’ research in NC, I was hundreds of miles away conducting research in other locations. On the other hand I am thankful for the Elliot’s and Ibrahim Hopers because they make my research much easier.
Note: When my researchers were conducting research within CAIR National I often wrote articles on my blogs simply to gain CAIR executives attention. People like Hooper then began to talk and the more they talked the more they provided supporting evidence that CAIR supports Islamic terrorist groups.
FP: Dave Gaubatz, thank you for joining Frontpagemag.com.
