Islamist Infiltrators Among UsTopics: Understanding Islam
Daniel Pipes points to Aafia Siddiqui, 36, a Pakistani mother of three, an alumna of MIT, and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Brandeis University, who is accused and was charged last week in NYC of working for Al-Qaeda and and with attempting to kill American soldiers - as a reminder of how invisibly most Islamist infiltration proceeds. According to Pipes, an estimated forty Al-Qaeda sympathizers or operatives have sought to penetrate U.S. intelligence agencies:
Westerners are indebted to Muslim agents like Fred Ghussin and "Kamil Pasha" who have been critical to fighting terrorism. That said, I stand by my 2003 statement that "There is no escaping the unfortunate fact that Muslim government employees in law enforcement, the military and the diplomatic corps need to be watched for connections to terrorism."Read it all here ...
As Pipes goes on the note in his piece, one must wonder what catastrophe must occur before government agencies, some of which have banished the words "Islam" and "jihad," seriously confront their internal threat? I would add to his comment that there are many liberally-minded, politically correct American citizens that have the same problem as the government agencies that banish the words "Islam" and "jihad," and fail to take both the internal threat and the threat from radical Islamists all over the world, to the survival of our culture and Western civilization.
