That Sharia Report

Pete Hoekstra just issued a press release encouraging people to read it: 

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that a report released by the Center for Security Policy on Shariah provides a timely and important look at the seldom-covered threat posed by Shariah and radical Islam.

“The center’s ‘Team B II’ report provides a strong and detailed look at aspects of Shariah and the Caliphate and how radical jihadists are using violence as a means to achieve them,” Hoekstra said. “So many years after 9/11, there is still a lack of critical understanding of the motivating force behind radical Islam and the terrorists that attacked our nation that day. This lack of clarity begins at the top with the Obama administration that seems conflicted over whether we are engaged with a real threat to national security or dealing with a legal issue.”

The CSP report takes a close look at the Muslim Brotherhood and its ties to radical Islamist organizations abroad and in the United States, including CAIR, the Muslim Student’s Association, and the Holyland Foundation. The report also looks at how U.S. administrations have mishandled the threat from Shariah and radical Islam and makes clear that the federal government must take steps to address Shariah more urgently.

“I encourage my colleagues in Congress and citizens interested in learning more about Shariah to read this important report,” Hoekstra said. “Shariah runs counter to our longstanding American principles of freedom and liberty. The recent spate of terrorist attacks in our homeland, the increased persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Central Asia, and the growing number of threats against individuals and property in response to perceived slights stem from a radical interpretation of Shariah and should be a cause for concern for all Americans.

“Our nation continues to sacrifice but fails to identify the threat as clearly as those countries closest to the source of the problem. They call it radical Islam, and we should learn to understand and speak as clearly about the problem. The ‘Team B II’ report is an excellent place to begin building that knowledge.”
