ACT! for America is the nation’s largest national security movement with 300,000 members. It is an issues advocacy organization dedicated to organize and mobilize effectively the most powerful grassroots citizen action network in America. We are committed to informed and coordinated civic action that will lead to public policies that promote America’s national security and the defense of American democratic values against the assault of radical Islam. This is not about politics or religion but about the future safety of our kids and grandkids.
ACT! for America was founded by Brigitte Gabriel. She is a regular guest analyst on Fox News. The fight against radical Islam is a fight Brigitte knows all too well. She was born in Lebanon and raised as a Christian. When the Lebanese Civil War broke out, her family and her Maronite community came under vicious attack by Islamists & 100,000 Christians died as a result. She was nearly killed by a mortar. Her home was destroyed. She lived in a bomb shelter for seven years. Most of her childhood friends were killed. That’s how Brigitte Gabriel knows about this fight.
WHY ACT! FOR AMERICA IS NEEDED
It’s really quite simple. The democratic values of Western Civilization, exemplified by the celebration of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, are under attack from radical Islam, exemplified by its celebration of death, terror and tyranny. This is an enemy that is determined, relentless and intent on imposing its ideology and sharia law on all freedom-loving people everywhere – including the United States.
ACT! for America is a citizen action network that will be the front-line voice for freedom-loving Americans everywhere. Our goal is to create a powerful grassroots organization of local chapters and citizens that will help to stop this plan of the radical Islamists.
- Committed to the dissemination of information about what radical Islam really is, what it believes, what its goals are, how it plans to accomplish them – and why freedom-loving people need to know this.
As you know there are many problems in our country today, but what you may not realize is that there is a specific agenda to change fundamentally our way of life that is happening right before our eyes. Yet it is happening so slowly and stealthily that most people can’t see it.
Followers of radical Islam have declared jihad against Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, non-Muslims, and secularists – simply because they regard us as infidels. They even target Muslims whom they regard as insufficiently “pure.” The warriors of radical Islam are not only “over there.” Tens of thousands of Islamic militants now reside in America, operating in sleeper cells, attending our colleges and universities, engaging in influence operations aimed at the media and government. They are in the US – today. Many have been here for years. Waiting. Preparing.
What’s more, there are Islamists throughout the world, and here in America, who are members of the Muslim Brotherhood and who may not engage in violent jihad, but are committed to “stealth jihad” or “cultural jihad.”
Here’s what you probably don’t know:
In 2004, federal investigators discovered a Muslim Brotherhood memorandum during a search of a northern Virginia home. The memorandum, written by Mohamed Akram for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Shura Council, described a “civilization jihad” aimed at North America.
It stated: “The Ikhwan( Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
This explanatory memorandum also included a list of 29 Muslim Brotherhood connected organizations in the U.S. The memorandum was entered into evidence at the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial in 2007-2008. Now you would think that the government has this problem solved. Inexplicably, the 2nd part of the trial hasn’t been allowed to go forward and all documents are sealed and locked up in the Justice Department.
Here’s the frightening part, these organizations are being allowed to operate and flourish in our society. Some of the organizations listed are CAIR, Islamic Society of North America and the Muslim Students Association.
Omar Ahmad, co-founder of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, made his intent clear in a July 4, 1998 San Ramon Valley Herald article: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to be dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America.”
The ultimate goal of both violent jihad and stealth jihad is the same: the advance and imposition of Islamic sharia law throughout the world. Only the means to the end is different. Islamists are being aided and abetted by the purveyors of political correctness – Progressives in government, the media, academia and Hollywood who are apologists for and enablers of radical Islam, who refuse to acknowledge the supremacist political ideology embedded within Islam that motivates both the violent jihadist and the stealth jihadist. Political correctness will literally kill us.
