Linda Sarsour: Lying about Islamic History and Jihad


This past week Linda Sarsour used the word jihad and spoke of resisting the administration and fighting against tyrants. People who want you to remain ignorant off the truth took to the Washington Post on Sunday to obfuscate the term "jihad." What needs to be known is that her consistent usage of the term resistance and the constant reference to her feelings of angst against those who would keep Islamic terrorists from entering America fit perfectly in the last fatwa by the last Caliph in 1915.

The 1915 fatwa was discovered by Ambassador Morgenthau in 1915 and sent to America, where it was kept as top secret until the 1960s.This is extremely important to understand because it reveals that the federal government feared releasing this information in the United States may cause Muslims to rise up and commit acts of jihad at home. Linda Sasour’s comments reveal that keeping this fatwa hidden has mis-educated Americans about what Islam truly believes in regards to the Islamic term “jihad.”

We are told we must learn from history or we are doomed to repeat it. This is why historical understanding of the term jihad is extremely important.  For this reason I am posting part of a chapter from my book Civilization Jihad and the Myth of Moderate Islam published in 2015.

In November 1915, a call for jihad was given by the Caliph Sheik-ul-Islam after the Ottoman Empire declared war against the Allies. Ambassador Morgenthau, described the event in his biography.
Sheik-ul-Islam published his proclamation, summoning the whole Moslem world to arise and massacre their Christian oppressors. "Oh, Moslems!" concluded this document. "Ye who are smitten with happiness and are on the verge of sacrificing your life and your goods for the cause of right, and of braving perils, gather now around the Imperial throne, obey the commands of the Almighty, who, in the Koran, promises us bliss in this and in the next world; embrace ye the foot of the Caliph's throne and know ye that the state is at war with Russia, England, France, and their Allies, and that these are the enemies of Islam. The Chief of the believers, the Caliph, invites you all as Moslems to join in the Holy War!"[i]
According to the Ambassador this was distributed and read in mosques in “India, China, Persia, Egypt, Algiers, Tripoli, Morocco, and the like; in all these places it was read to the assembled multitudes and the populace was exhorted to obey the mandate.”[ii] BUT, what was also being distributed in the same areas was a pamphlet written in Arabic heavily filled with quotes from the Koran. This pamphlet in English contained 10,000 words that incited racial and religious hatred. “It described a detailed plan of operations for the assassination and extermination of all Christians---except those of German nationality.”[iii]
That pamphlet was translated into English on March 10, 1915. When Ambassador Morgenthau wrote his story of what happened during the Great War (World War 1) he felt that this fatwa had to be shared with the American people so they would understand what happened. Below is one portion he shared.

O people of the faith and O beloved Moslems, consider, even though but for a brief moment, the present condition of the Islamic world. For if you consider this but for a little you will weep long. You will behold a bewildering state of affairs which will cause the tear to fall and the fire of grief to blaze. You see the great country of India, which contains hundreds of millions of Moslems, fallen, because of religious divisions and weaknesses, into the grasp of the enemies of God, the infidel English. You see forty, millions of Moslems in Java shackled by the chains of captivity and of affliction under the rule of the Dutch, although these infidels are much fewer in number than the faithful and do not enjoy a much higher civilization. You see Egypt, Morocco, Tunis, Algeria, and the Sudan suffering the extremes of pain and groaning in the grasp of the enemies of God and his apostle. You see the vast country of Siberia and Turkestan and Khiva and Bokhara and the Caucasus and the Crimea and Kazan and Ezferhan and Kosahastan, whose Moslem peoples believe in the unity of God, ground under the feet of their oppressors, who are the enemies already of our religion. You behold Persia being prepared for partition and you see the city of the Caliphate, which for ages has unceasingly fought breast to breast with the enemies of our religion, now become the target for oppression and violence. Thus wherever you look you see that the enemies of the true religion, particularly the English, the Russian, and the French, have oppressed Islam and invaded its rights in every possible way. We cannot enumerate the insults we have received at the hands of these nations who desire totally to destroy Islam and drive all Mohammedans off the face of the earth. This tyranny has passed all endurable limits; the cup of our oppression is full to overflowing. . . . In brief, the Moslems work and the infidels eat; the Moslems are hungry and suffer and the infidels gorge themselves and live in luxury. The world of Islam sinks down and goes backward, and the Christian world goes forward and is more and  more exalted. The Moslems are enslaved and the infidels are the great rulers. This is all because the Moslems have abandoned the plan set forth in the Koran and ignored the Holy War which it commands. . . . But the time has now come for the Holy War, and by this the land of Islam shall be forever freed from the power of the infidels who oppress it. This holy war has now become a sacred duty. Know ye that the blood of infidels in the Islamic lands may be shed with impunity---except those to whom the Moslem power has promised security and who are allied with it. [Herein we find that Germans and Austrians are excepted from massacre.] The killing of infidels who rule over Islam has become a sacred duty, whether you do it secretly or openly, as the Koran has decreed: 'Take them and kill them whenever you find them. Behold we have delivered them unto your hands and given you supreme power over them.' He who kills even one unbeliever of those who rule over us, whether he does it secretly or openly, shall be rewarded by God. And let every Moslem, in whatever part of the world he may be, swear a solemn oath to kill at least three or four of the infidels who rule over him, for they are the enemies of God and of the faith. Let every Moslem know that his reward for doing so shall be doubled by the God who created heaven and earth. A Moslem who does this shall be saved from the terrors of the day of Judgment, of the resurrection of the dead. Who is the man who can refuse such a recompense for such a small deed? … Yet the time has come that we should rise up as the rising of one man, in one hand a sword, in the other a gun, in his pocket balls of fire and death-dealing missiles, and in his heart the light of the faith, and that we should lift up our voices, saying India for the Indian Moslems, Java for the Javanese Moslems, Algeria for the Algerian Moslems, Morocco for the Moroccan Moslems, Tunis for the Tunisan Moslems, Egypt for the Egyptian Moslems, Iran for the Iranian Moslems, Turan for the Turanian Moslems, Bokhara for the Bokharan Moslems, Caucasus for the Caucasian Moslems, and the Ottoman Empire for the Ottoman Turks and Arabs.[iv] [Emphasis added]

The 1915 fatwa piece you just read was hidden from the American people as a classified document until 1961. The State Department kept this under lock and key because of its incendiary nature. Interestingly under new Common Core American education curriculum standards, it is a Primary Source Document as Ambassador Morgenthau named it as the cause of the Armenian Genocide in his biography and in numerous communications with Washington.

The rest of the document revealed a call on every Muslim to one of three levels of Jihad:
1. Heart Jihad
2. Word of Mouth Jihad
3. Physical Jihad

The fact that an Islamic Holy War can have warriors engaged at one of three levels is significant as previous to this the concept of jihad on differing levels was unknown to those who are not Muslim.

Heart Jihad
This concept of jihad (holy war) as stated above was unknown to exist before the fatwa was read. It simply stated:

This is the easiest and simplest. In this case it is to suppose that every unbeliever is an enemy to persecute and exterminate him from the face of the earth. There is not a Muslim in the world who is not inspired by this idea. However in the Koran it said: “That such a war is not enough for a Muslim whether young or old, and must also participate in the other parts of the Holy War.[v]


This is a war that takes places internally. It passes hatred and prejudicial opinions from generation to generation. This level of jihad explains the continual exclusivity of the sharia compliant Muslims in countries where they do not have a large enough number to do more than keep the war inside of themselves. Note that this level of jihad is a requirement of all Muslims regardless of age. This is a requirement to desire the genocide of all who are not Muslims.

Word of Mouth Jihad
Another level of jihad revealed that Islamic concept of war was much larger than previously thought.

Jihad by word of mouth. That is to say fighting by writing and speaking. This kind of war for example should pertain to the Muslims of the Caucasus. They should have commenced this war three or four months ago, because their actual position does not permit them to but the carrying on of such warfare. Every Muslim is in duty bound to write and speak against the unbelievers when actual circumstances do not permit him to assume more stringent measures, as for instances in the Caucasus. Therefore every writer must use his pen in favor of such a war.[vi]

This second level of warfare can take the appearance of deceit to obtain influence and strength. This is the level at which Civilization Jihad takes place. The reasoning again is that they are not strong enough in number to take part in the third level.

In North America this war has been waged by forcing textbook publishers to provide textbooks that promote Islam instead of an objective review of the religion (See Chapter 5 for more detail.). Triple I-T, the International Institute of Islamic Thought, fights this battle in North America by giving colleges large sums of money to install Islamic professors. Another place this battle can be seen is through the concept of Islamization of Knowledge a teaching by Dr. Ismail Faruqi that all knowledge is only acceptable after Islam has purified it.

College professors of Islam are encouraged by this reasoning to provide some incitement to rally for Hamas by calling it a rally for the Gazan Palestinians and offering extra credit to those who show, and not informing those who do they are likely to have their pictures taken and an FBI file started on them. It is the level of jihad that led Jasser Auda of the International Institute of Islamic Thought, to redefine terrorism to mean: an act in which “innocent People (civilians or non-civilians) are harmed in a way that goes against the principles of justice and human dignity.”[vii] The word “innocent” has a specific meaning to Muslims that Westerners are unaware of. Imam Anjem Chaudry shared this one evening on BBC’s Hard Talk on July 7, 2005. He said, “As far as Muslims are concerned your innocent if you…you are a Muslim, then you are innocent in the eyes of God. You are non- Muslim then you are guilty of not-believing in God.”[viii]

This also explains the push to attain powerful places of power in the major U.S. and Canadian political parties. It is the reasoning by the bus ad campaign My Jihad, which promoted misinformation and a favorable outlook on Islam.

Physical Jihad
Lastly, the fatwa defines jihad, holy war as a hot physical activity. But allows for those who fund the battle to be included at this, the highest level of jihad

Physical Jihad. This means actual fighting in the fullest sense of the word… Every private individual can fight with deadly weapons, as for example. Here is the following illustration of the late Egyptian Verdani who shot the unbelieving Butros Gal Pacha the friend of the English with a revolver. The murder of one of the English police Commissioner Bavaro in India by one of our Indian brethren. The killing of one of the officials of Kansch on his coming from Mecca by the Prophet’s friend ”Abu Bazir El Pachbi,” peace be unto him! Abdallah ibn Aatickand four colleagues killed “Abu Raafa Ibn El Hakiki.” The leader of the Jews so famous for his enmity to Islamism. This was executed by our Prophet’s command, so did Avrala Ibn Ravacha and his friends when they killed Ocher Ibn Dawas one of the Jewish dignitaries. There are many instances of similar cases. Lord of the Universal What fails us now, and should not some of us go forth to fight this sacred war for exalting thy glorious name? What could not happen were some individuals among us, men of courage and stout hearted kill the principal Christian men of the Triple Alliance, the foes of Islam. By so doing they would wipe their names from the face of the earth. Thou O Allah art responsible if you will not inspire every Muslim, with the holy spirit, to in this jihad {holy war}.[ix]

The violent concept of jihad was taken after this reading of the 1915 fatwa that led to the genocide of the Armenian people. This document was seen to be so inciteful that the US government classified this document as dangerous and hid it from the people until 1961. Note that specific references were given to violent actions of assassination as part of jihad. Jihad is here shown clearly by a Caliph to mean a violent act against non-Muslims.

This caliph was very specific as to what was considered Physical War. He broke it into two categories.

A Lesser War and a Greater War
The lesser war, is when a certain section of Muslims rise to fight against their enemies in combination with their compatriots in the war sphere only, without summoning the aid of Muslims of other lands. For example the Sinoussians war with the Italians in Tripoli. Even in such a case every Muslim should offer material and moral help and not follow the course the Egyptian Government took in the Italian war when acting under the advice of the unbelieving English Government they declared themselves neutral. This sin shall never be forgiven them. However our Egyptian brethren have helped us to a certain degree financially and morally in the last two wars and in spite of their unbelieving rulers forwarded their collections on our behalf to the Capital of the Caliphate.[x](Emphasis added)

The concept of a lesser war is simply one that the Caliph does not declare and one in which no aid is requested of Muslims of other lands. Note the reference here to support. In today’s concept of Islamic Jihad, there are many Muslims who offer material and moral help. One only need look at the ISIS social networking to see people around the world standing with their black flag next to landmarks of countries all around the globe.

However, the concept of greater war, one declared by a Caliph which called Muslims to action can be viewed in terms of the result of this fatwa. The near entire genocide of the Armenian people. Ambassador Morgenthau wrote many details of this horror, below is just one event:

Let me relate a single episode which is contained in one of the reports of our consuls and which now forms part of the records of the American State Department. Early in July, 2,000 Armenian "amŽlŽs"---such is the Turkish word for soldiers who have been reduced to workmen---were sent from Harpoot to build roads. The Armenians in that town understood what this meant and pleaded with the Governor for mercy. But this official insisted that the men were not to be harmed, and he even called upon the German missionary, Mr. Ehemann, to quiet the panic, giving that gentleman his word of honour that the ex-soldiers would be protected. Mr. Ehemann believed the Governor and assuaged the popular fear. Yet practically every man of these 2,000 was massacred, and his body thrown into a cave. A few escaped, and it was from these that news of the massacre reached the world. A few days afterward another 2,000 soldiers were sent to Diarbekir. The only purpose of sending these men out in the open country was that they might be massacred. In order that they might have no strength to resist or to escape by flight, these poor creatures were systematically starved. Government agents went ahead on the road, notifying the Kurds that the caravan was approaching and ordering them to do their congenial duty. Not only did the Kurdish tribesmen pour down from the mountains upon this starved and weakened regiment, but the Kurdish women came with butcher's knives in order that they might gain that merit in Allah's eyes that comes from killing a Christian. These massacres were not isolated happenings; I could detail many more episodes just as horrible as the one related above; throughout the Turkish Empire a systematic attempt was made to kill all able-bodied men, not only for the purpose of removing all males who might propagate a new generation of Armenians, but for the purpose of rendering the weaker part of the population an easy prey.[xi]

THREE SIMPLE TRUTHS SOCIAL STUDIES TEACHERS SHOULD BE SHARING ABOUT ISLAM

Illustration from: http://nicolettelodge.com/truth-2

What Social Studies Teachers do not know about Islam is proving to be the icing on the cake for entities of the Muslim Brotherhood such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has a proven relationship with Hamas as shown in USA versus Holy Land Foundation trial in 2008. Social Studies Teachers are teachers who are expected to know vast amounts of history including world history, history of the United States, citizenship, and economics. But they are not required to be specialists in small parts of this vast field, though many do have favorite areas, they know more about.

One would think that since 9/11/2001 that we should have revised what we teach in social studies classes to combat Islamic terrorism. After we all, we basically won the war on communism through education. I propose a few simple truths be taught about Islam that are currently not taught in public schools under Common Core.

  1. Muhammad took part in rebuilding a polytheist temple known as the Ka’aba. A person who believed in only one god most likely would not take part in rebuilding a polytheist temple. 
“When they saw him thy said, ‘This is the trustworthy one. We are satisfied. This is Muhammad.’  When he came to them and they informed him of the matter he said, ‘Give me a cloak,’ and when it was brought to him he took the black stone and put it inside it and said that each tribe and said that each tribe should take hold of an end of the cloak and they should lift it together. They did this so that when they got it into position he placed it with his own hand, and then the building went on above it.” (Guillaume, A. The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Ibn Ishaq's Sirat Rasul Allah. Dhaka, Pakistan: University Press, 2000, p. 86.) 
2.  Muhammad never followed the first command of the Angel Gabriel: “read.” Muhammad never learned to read.
“An Angel came to him and asked him to read. Allah's Messenger replied, "I do not know how to read." The Prophet added, "Then the Angel held me (forcibly) and pressed me so hard that I felt distressed. Then he released me and again asked me to read, and I replied, 'I do not know how to read.' Thereupon he held me again and pressed me for the second time till I felt distressed. He then released me and asked me to read, but again I replied. 'I do not know how to read.' Thereupon he held me for the third time and pressed me till I got distressed, and then he released me and said, 'Read, in the Name of your Lord Who has created (all that exists), has created man out of a clot, Read!” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 6, Book 60, Hadith 478)
3)      Muhammad when insulted threatened physical harm to others:
“‘They said that they had never known anything like the trouble they had endured from this fellow; he had declared their mode of life foolish, insulted their forefathers, reviled their religion, divided the community, and cursed their gods. What they had borne was past all bearing, or words to that effect.’ 
“While they were discussing him the apostle came towards them and kissed the black stone, then he passed by them as he entered the temple. [Muhammad began the prayer walk around the Kaabah.] As he passed they said some injurious things about him. This I could see from his expression. He went on and as passed them the second time they attacked him similarly.  This I could see from his expression. Then he passed the third time and, and they did the same. He stopped and said, ‘Will you listen to me O Quraysh? By him who holds my life in His hand I bring you slaughter.’” (Guillaume, p. 130-131.)

It is important to grasp this last one. The “religion of peace” has a prophet that threatens to do physical harm to those who insult him. This should expose that Islam is not a religion of peace at all. Why is this topic avoided?

It is Islamic sources that claim these three things. Only three simple things that Muslims should know if they read the Koran and the first Sirat (biography of Muhammad) written! If these three simple things were taught sharing the Islamic documents they come from, we would be doing nothing less than teaching than truth!

EXPOSED: The Shape-shifter Threat in the Muslim Brotherhood!

Former Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates was recently asked in a FOX News (2017, May 23) interview about his opinion of the Muslim Brotherhood and if they should be labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization. His response speaks volumes:
I think of the Muslim Brotherhood in the context of science fiction shape shifters. They will look like whatever they think they want you to look -- them to look like…. we have seen the Muslim Brotherhood actually come to power, it put the lie to all of their claims about being a moderate force that was accepting of democratic norms if you will. Now, the other aspect of it is Hamas is a direct offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood is generally regarded as the ideological forerunner of both al-Qaeda and -- and ISIS, Daesh. And -- so, it seems to me by and large, going back to the old saying, if it looks like a duck and it walks like a duck, maybe it's a duck. [Emphasis Added]
            Secretary Gates’ concerns regarding the MB is of particular interest for the IC today. Poole (2013) points out that the past president invited persons to the White House who were implicated by federal prosecutors in financing terrorism.[1] One of them being Mohamad Majid, who was then the president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a known entity of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. Poole notes in his article that materials containing terminology “Muslim Brotherhood” and other Muslim terms related to shariah and jihad were purged  from the DHS and FBI libraries in 2012 and earlier. Poole noted that this purge allowed for certain individuals to gain access to the White House on a daily basis naming one of them being Salam al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), who had previously been recommended by President Clinton to a “congressional terrorism commission withdrawn after his comments in support of Hamas and Hizballah.”[2] President Obama appointed al-Marayati to be a member of the official U.S. delegation to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) conference on human rights held in Vienna in 2012.[3]
            Former FBI Director James Comey confirmed the purge in his testimony before the Senate Committee On The Judiciary Hearing On FBI Oversight on May 3, 2017:
In the previous Congress, I -- I chaired a hearing on -- on the willful blindness of the Obama administration to radical Islamic terrorism, where testimony from a whistleblower at the Department Homeland security that described a purge DHS had -- had undergone of editing or deleting over 800 records at DHS to remove references to radical Islam, to the Muslim Brotherhood. And the purge indeed was the word used by the White House that directed DHS to conduct that purge.[4]
The above purge is mentioned as relational to allowing persons to be appointed to positions they would not previously have been allowed, due to public endorsements of entities classified as Foreign Terrorist Organizations. Some of those who visited the White House regularly and later became employees are children and grand-children of  those who were  or are Muslim Brotherhood leaders in North America!
CAIR, one of the  entities that petitioned the DHS and FBI to censor its materials was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the USA vs Holy Land Foundation, et. al.. How is it possible so many changes were made allowing a pass for those who work to destroy America within? How did records get "purged" that would allow even more infiltration? Perhaps this is one of the question former Director of the FBI, James Comey should answer while under oath!

Are We Prepared If Congress Declares the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Entity?

The Muslim Brotherhood is digging trenches in case they beome labeled a FTO.

Experience teaches us that it is much easier to prevent an enemy from posting themselves than it is to dislodge them after they have got possession. ~ George Washington

When a government refuses to acknowledge an entity’s declared war against it, it becomes susceptible to the dangers of infiltration and seditious activity within its own borders. In 2004, the United States learned that the Muslim Brotherhood within North America had declared war against America, Canada and Mexico. Knowledge of this declared war became public information through the Holy Land Foundation vs. USA (2008).
The FBI had known of the threat of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee as evidenced by records provided at the trial of wire-tapping which was used in the HLF trial. Evidence provided through these transcripts proved that members of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America had formed a Palestine Committee, which had intent to funnel finances to Hamas (a chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood).
In addition to this threat Yousef Al-Qaradawi, the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood issued a fatwa in 2003 “that anybody killed in a military operation aimed at expelling American occupation forces from the Gulf is a martyr due to his good intention” (Al-Uwaydidi, 2003).
Threats from the Muslim Brotherhood have continued. One was given on a televised broadcast from Turkey in 2015. There was little to no reaction by the Obama administration.
In addition to this many of the Islamic terror organizations active today have been found to have their roots in the Muslim Brotherhood. Middle East Monitor (2013) pointed out the connection of ISIS to the Muslim Brotherhood.
For these reason the American public has been actively pursuing a course to have the Muslim Brotherhood declared a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).
There have been several attempts since 2013 to have federal government list the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist entity. Politically this has taken on different forms. For example, under President Barak Obama a petition site was established for the people of the United States to share needs and concerns. If the petition garnered 20-30,000 signatures, a promise was given to answer the petition. In 2013, a petition was written to have the United States designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist entity had garnered 213,146 signatures! But no response was given for a year. When the Office of President responded on the site it claimed the Muslim Brotherhood was a non-violent entity ignoring decades of assassinations bombings, and more.
Since 2015, there has been a change where bills have been submitted in Congress to do what the State Department has not – name the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist entity.
In the House of Representatives HR 5823 submitted on July 2016 was sent to Homeland Security – Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. HR5823 was submitted by Rep. Brat and was entitled: “Naming the Enemy Within Homeland Security Act.” 
February 24, 2016 the Judiciary Committee of the House called on the White House Administration to label the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.
In 2017, Senator Ted Cruz proposed a repeat of a bill he submitted in 2015 that died in committee. The majority of the text is exactly the same. These bills proposed the label of Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).
Whether the FBI considers the Muslim Brotherhood a current threat or not, may be irrelevant. It is possible that the efforts of the American people through their elected officials will push the bills proposed that label the Muslim Brotherhood a FTO into law. It is also possible, that under President Trump, the State Department will declare the Muslim Brotherhood a FTO.
The Muslim Brotherhood has operated both discreetly and openly in the United States of America for over 50 years. For this reason President Washington’s words have special meaning. It will be a difficult assignment to clean the USA of the Muslim Brotherhood presence if it is declared a FTO.
Current estimates of the number of Muslim Brotherhood entities within the United States are in the hundreds. These include large entities such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Students Association (MSA), the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and individual mosques and Islamic Centers. This does not even include an analysis of who should be arrested under the Patriot Act if the Muslim Brotherhood is declared an FTO.
NCIS has had investigations into interactions of Navy personnel and members of CAIR. This was revealed through a FOIA sent to the Navy which was passed on to NCIS. NCIS promised to partially fulfill the FOIA.  
DHS has had personnel openly confess to being a part of the Muslim Brotherhood while appointed to a committee to decide if the Muslim Brotherhood should be designated as a FTO.
Sutliff (2015) shows that the Office of Management and Budget in the White House had a member of ISNA’s Shura Council overseeing the budgets of cabinet members under the last President. This threat of harm is deeper than most think.These are government positions. What about entities and personnel engaged in colleges?  Would the FBI recognize those who espouse affinity towards supporting Hamas, a designated FTO, and a chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood as persons in violation of the Patriot Act? They have yet to act at all on this as evidenced by the bold public declarations found in Middle East Forum (2002).

What about persons actively engaged in misinformation campaigns. Specifically, the Institute on Religion and Civic Values (IRCV), which works with many major textbook industries in America. Its original name being the Council on Islamic Education (CIE), which has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Is the FBI ready to act if the State Department or Congress declares the Muslim Brotherhood a FTO or possibly a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) entity?
According to the Muslim Link Paper (2017, March 7), one of the online papers for the United States Muslim Council of Organizations (USMCO), a known umbrella group of Muslim Brotherhood organizations, whether the USA is prepared or not to take on the task of dealing with a FTO label on the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood community is preparing for the FBI.

The Deceitful Misinformation that Created a TRO

When evidence exists to prove a state attorney general purposefully misinformed a federal judge whether IN COURT or through paperwork as to what evidence exists to support a stand against the President of the United States what is this called? Is it perjury?

Hawaii AG Doug Chin was not under oath, but there is an expectation of professionalism and truthfulness when presenting before a judge whether through passing of papers OR standing and presenting a case! So why did he misinform Judge Derrick Watson about the statistics related to the University of Hawai’i.

AG Chin claimed that if Trump’s order restricting travel of those from 6 countries were to be enforced, the University of Hawai’i would suffer financially.
           
… that any prospective recruits who are without visas as of March 16, 2017 will not be able to travel to Hawaii to attend the University. As a result, the University will not be able to collect the tuition that those students would have paid. (http://www.hid.uscourts.gov/docs/orders/DKW_order.pdf)

Judge Watson’s TRO cited AG Douglass Chin's additional claim that if the ban goes into effect it will likely cause the closing of the Persian Literature, Language and Culture Program.

So what are the actual statistics? I filed a FOIA request with the University of Hawai’i to find out.

According to the University of Hawai’i the entire University system has 13,352 students. Of those 13,352 students only .43% of the student body as a whole were Iranian. One student came from Libya. One from Somalia and one from Yemen. In all 61 students at the University of Hawai’i would be effected through President Trump’s Executive Order. IF THEY WERE NOT ALREADY HERE!

Attorney General Douglass Chin made a claim that a drop in these students ability to attend classes would likely close the Persian Language, Linguistics and Culture Program courses.  Only 52 students in total are enrolled in these courses taught by two professors. If AG Chin had a chance to find a negative effect against the University of Hawaii this was it. In all 4 students would be effected. Those four are from Iran, bringing the percentage of students effected of those that attend to 8%.

This brings us to asking simple and important questions. How could Hawaii State Attorney General not have access to this information? It took me one week to obtain it and I live in New York. This brings us back to, is it allowable for an attorney to purposefully withhold information for the purpose of misinforming a judge.

Attorneys Joel Cohen and Danielle Alfonso Walsman wrote about just this type of thing in the New York Law Journal on June 1, 2009 in an article entitled Asking for Trouble: When Lawyers Lie to Judges.

One of the first and most obvious things we learn as lawyers, and, indeed, the disciplinary rules make clear, is that lawyers must follow the same instructions given to clients in preparation for testimony: You cannot ever lie in court! And if a false representation is made to the court, even unintentionally, a lawyer who later realizes his error is affirmatively required to take reasonable measures to remedy the statement.

I do not know if Attorney General Douglass Chin considers his filing for a TRO against President Trump’s executive order a place he should be allowed to create misinformation  to prove his point, but in either case these statistics prove that the TRO is at least partially established on false and misleading information. If the Judge had not bothered to pre-write his decision, he could have easily verified the information I am sharing and in so doing exposed AG Chin as not being wholly truthful in court.

The sad truth then is that this is likely evidence of collusion between the Hawaii AG and the Judge Derrick Watson. If Judge Derrick Watson had not come to the bench with a pre-judgment, he likely would have checked the statistical claims of the AG.
