Join Tom Trento in this fascinating conversation with artist Bosch Fawstin, winner of the Inaugural Muhammad Art Exhibit in Garland Texas, May 3, 2015. If you never heard of Bosch and his grippingly aggressive writing and drawing until the Islamic State attack in Texas, after watching this show you will want to know more about Bosch and his groundbreaking work. Fawstin, a former Muslim, has the bona fides to critique Islam from the inside and the artistic talent to illustrate the inconsistencies and absurdity of Islamic prohibitions against even non-Muslims drawing a picture of Muhammad, Moses or Jesus! An added benefit to this discussion is that both Bosch and Tom share some of their personal experiences in this show about being under attack at the Culwell Convention Center by Muslim terrorists…who are now dead.

Never Never Submit: A Recovering Muslim Speaks

These are interesting days for the intersection of comics andthe Clash of Civilizations. The real-life adventures of a former al-Qaeda militant have become a popular comic book in Indonesia – the most populous Muslim nation in the world – chronicling his transformation from enemy to ally in the fight against terrorism. DC Comics, the home of Batman, sent him to Paris and replaced sidekick Robin with a French Algerian Muslim known as Nightrunner. “The 99,” a comic book creation out of the Middle East featuring 99 superheroes, each representing a different aspect of Islamic culture, has received the blessing of President Obama and is hooking up with other DC comic heroes as well as becoming an animated TV series.
And then there’s Pigman, the jihadists’ nemesis and the protagonist of Bosch Fawstin’s graphic novel The Infidel, a story of Muslim twin brothers whose lives veer in polar opposite directions in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. The Infidel echoes Fawstin’s own journey from his Albanian Muslim beginnings, to apostate and Ayn Rand devotee.
Fawstin is a cartoonist who scored an Eisner Award nomination – the comics industry equivalent of an Oscar nod – for his debut graphic novel, Table For One. He’s also a FrontPage contributing artist and the author/illustrator of ProPIGanda: Drawing the Line Against Jihad, a collection of images and essays that serve as a companion piece to The Infidel.




Meet, Dom -The Conservative, blogger, wife, Mom, counter-jihad warrior! Sometimes it’s funny how life provides positive developments from extremely bizarre situations. On May 3, 2015, Dom was one of the attendees at the Pamela Geller – Muhammad Art Exhibit and was there to support the American doctrine of freedom to speak and freedom to assemble. Little did she realize how her life would be changed by being one of the people under attack from Muslim terrorists who were intent on killing the participants simple because they were at the event? In the midst of the “controlled” confusion of the evening our United West team met Dom, interviewed her and became friends with a very serious, very intelligent woman who has a critically important message for all freedom-loving Americans. Tune in today and listen to what Dom has to say and then, JOIN THE FIGHT!


 U.S. Welcomes Millions of Aliens ‘Sight Unseen’ »

 Replacing the in-person inspections process with a kiosk. 
My article addresses a component of the failed immigration system that has been all but ignored by Congress and journalists, the way that the inspections process is conducted at ports of entry by CBP (Customs and Border Protection) inspectors.
The debates about immigration have centered on the need to secure the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico.  Indeed, that border must be made secure.  There should be no debate about this issue.  However, there are many other components to the immigration system.  This was the focus of my July 7, 2014 article for FrontPage Magazine:

The inspections process conducted at ports of entry is one I am extremely familiar with- I began my career with the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) as an Immigration Inspector assigned to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York in 1971.  I remained in that position until 1975 when I became an INS Special Agent.

That process is essential to national security and is supposed to prevent the entry of aliens into the United States who would pose a threat to the safety and wellbeing of America and Americans.  The system has not been as nearly effective or successful as it needs to be.  The fact is that it has been estimated that 40% of all illegal aliens present in the United States did not run our borders and evade the inspections process but, in fact, entered the United States and went on to violate the terms of their admission.  
The presence of these millions of illegal aliens contribute to the massive population of illegal aliens and overwhelms the immigration system.  This further undermines the integrity of the immigration system and, in point of fact, the 9/11 Commission made a number of recommendations about the way that this vital process needs to be enhanced- all of the 9/11 terrorists were lawfully admitted into the United States as have other terrorists, criminals and fugitives.
So much attention has been paid to the need to construct a fence on the U.S./Mexican border- and of course that border must be made secure, yet the means of entry for millions of illegal aliens- the fatally flawed “legal” means by which aliens who enter the United States and then violate the terms of their admission is not being made more effective but is actually being made less effective- primarily to satisfy the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a host of other deep-pocketed organizations who are getting the “best government money can buy!
The Visa Waiver Program that enables aliens who are citizens of participating countries to enter the United States without first applying for and receiving a visa should have ended the day after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.  However, on that horrific day nearly 14 years ago the list of those countries included 26 countries.  Today that list has grown to 38 countries- even as ISIS and other terror organizations seek to recruit Europeans and citizens of other countries that participate in that dangerous and wrong-headed program.
If this program did not create unacceptable vulnerabilities for America and Americans, you will likely be shocked and infuriated to find out how this inspections process is now being conducted at a growing number ports of entry across the United States for broad categories of aliens seeking to enter the United States.
Politicians who pander to deep-pocketed contributors and/or to special interest groups that promise to deliver blocks of votes need to come to the stark realization that they are undermining national security and the wellbeing of the very constituents and indeed, all American citizens.  The political calculus that they are doing to appease those to whom they have come to depend must take much more into account- the future of our nation and our citizens.

The ‘Secure Our Border First Act’ Deception »

On June 13, 2013 I was interviewed by Neil Cavuto at Fox News on the topic:

The interview ran about 4 minutes and is worth watching.

On April 4, 2014, CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my commentary that asks the questions all Americans need to ask their political “representatives.”  My commentary is aptly titled:  “How? Why?
In his historic speech before the 3rd Army on May 31, 1944, General George S. Patton said, on the strategy of holding a position:

We’re not holding anything, we’ll let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.”

Pushing back against Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the same as holding position. The time has come for us to advance by demanding that our borders be made truly secure and our immigration laws be effectively administered and enforced.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform violates all of the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission but no one is willing to even consider how the lack of real border security and the lack of real integrity to the various components of the immigration system imperil national security and public safety.

The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation.  That commission determined that a lack of border security, including the visa process. and fraud in the immigration benefits program, enabled terrorists to enter and embed themselves in the United States, as they went about their deadly preparations.

Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today!  Simply stated, the immigration laws were enacted to save lives and protect the jobs of American workers.  In point of fact, our borders and our immigration laws are America’s first line of defense and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.
It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be “Pro-American!”
Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within.  The failures of the DHS to live up to its half of the equation are undermining the efforts, valor and incredible sacrifices of Americas men and women who serve in our military!
If our government’s failures to protect American jobs by securing our nation’s borders and effectively enforcing our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation! 

All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!

We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!

You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

Lead, follow or get out of the way!

Police officer shot at ‘Muhammad art contest’ in Texas


Geert Wilders spoke at the event Sunday night where a police officer was shot
at ‘Muhammad art contest’ in Texas.

GARLAND, Texas – A police officer who was part of the heavy security for a free-speech event called the “Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest” featuring Dutch politician Geert Wilders was shot shortly after the event ended at approximately 7 p.m. Central Time.

A SWAT officer told WND two suspects “are down,” but law-enforcement officers have put a perimeter around them, fearing they may have explosive devices.

Attendees, including this reporter, have been moved to a secure location at the Curtis Culwell Center in suburban Dallas.

Wilders left the building with members of his permanent Dutch security detail before the shooting.

The condition of the officer is unknown.

A witness of the shooting, John Roby of Oklahoma City, told WND he was heading out to his car when he heard what sounded like automatic-weapon fire coming from a black vehicle on the street outside the center. Immediately, he heard two pistol shots, and a police officer yelled, “We’ve got the car.”

The Curtis Culwell Center was the site of a Jan. 17 event one week after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, called “Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect.”

Muslim leaders in the U.S, reacting to the worldwide solidarity with the satirical newspaper that published cartoons of Islam’s founder, said they hoped the event would be the beginning of a “movement” to “defend Prophet Muhammad” and “defeat Islamophobia.”

In January, two French-born Muslims “avenged the prophet” by killing 11 Charlie Hebdo staff members.

On Thursday, a Twitter account purporting to belong to Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan, an American jihadi reportedly fighting in Somalia, called for attacks to be carried out in the United States similar to those on Charlie Hebdo.

The following message accompanied a link to a story about the event in Garland Sunday night:

“The brothers from the Charlie hebdo attack did their part. It’s time for brothers in the #US to do their part.”

The event Sunday featured a keynote by Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, who is regarded by the organizers of “Stand With the Prophet” as one of the world’s worst fomenters of “Islamophobia.”

Wilders told the Texas crowd he doesn’t hate Muslims but believes Islam is an existential threat to Western civilization and the Islamization of the West, primarily through immigration, should be aggressively opposed.

He commended the approximately 200 people who attended the event for standing for free speech, greeting them with the familiar slogan “Don’t mess with Texas.”

The host of the Garland event, American Freedom Defense Initiative, is led by author and Atlas Shrugs blogger Pamela Geller, and author and Jihad Watch Director Robert Spencer, who argue their work amounts to citing the justifications from the Quran and other Islamic texts used by Muslims who employ violent acts and other means to assert Islamic supremacy.

There was massive security at the Texas event Sunday, including a SWAT team, a portable police tower, metal detectors inside and blockades outside.

In advance of the exhibit, Officer Joe Harn of the Garland Police Department said: “We’ll be paying attention to any kind of chatter that we need to. If anything raises suspicions, we will react to that.”

As WND reported Thursday, three U.S. congressmen urged Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to deny Wilders a visa ahead of his visit to the U.S. this week, charging alleged ongoing “participation in inciting anti-Muslim aggression and violence.”

Wilders has been under constant security protection since November 2004, when two North African Muslims were accused of planning to murder him and another outspoken critic of Islam in the parliament, Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Geert Wilders’ book “Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me” is available now at a special price at WND’s Superstore

Prior to the Garland event, artnet news editor Sarah Cascone said in a piece published by the Huffington Post that the Muhammad contest it “shameless Muslim-baiting.

But Spencer contends that few people seem to grasp that the “very foundation of what makes for a free society” is at stake.

“Some have said that they cannot support such initiatives because they find the Muhammad cartoons to be in poor taste, and consider them in the same way that Christians regard Piss Christ — it’s legal, but that doesn’t make the people doing it any more admirable than other louts and mockers,” he wrote on his Jihad Watch site.

Spencer contends that that viewpoint essentially is “bowing to violent intimidation” and giving away the authority to decide what is acceptable speech, which is “the road to tyranny.”

“What is at issue here is not being respectful, or refraining from mockery, or deliberately provoking jihadis – what is at issue here is whether the West will submit to murderous threats, which will only lead to more demands for submission and more murderous threats, and whether it will accept Shariah blasphemy laws or stand for a free and genuinely pluralistic society in which people put up with offense even to their core beliefs without resorting to violence or attempts to gain hegemony over the group doing the offending.”

Geller mobilized about 2,000 people to protest the “Stand With the Prophet” event in January.

She said the aim of her event Sunday was “precisely to show that we will not be cowed into silence by this violent intimidation.”

“That is a crucial stand to take as Islamist assaults on the freedom of speech, our most fundamental freedom, are growing more insistent.”

In 2010, she organized a group she estimates was 5,000-strong to march on the site of the proposed “Ground Zero Mosque” near the World Trade Center. The project eventually was canceled.

The ADI art contest echoes Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten’s publication in 2005 of editorial cartoons satirizing Muhammad. The move prompted protests throughout the Middle East.

Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Renald Luzier, who designed the front page of the magazine that appeared after the Paris attacks, announced last week he will no longer draw Muhammad.

He insists “the terrorists didn’t win,” explaining that drawing Muhammad “no longer interests me.”

A week after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Australian artist Larry Pickering was put under police protection after threats arose in response to his depiction of Muhammad roasting on a spit as a pig.

In Belgium, a museum canceled an exhibition honoring the murdered Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, citing security concerns.

In February, Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has faced numerous death threats for caricaturing Muhammad, was whisked away from a free-speech event in Copenhagen called “Art, blasphemy and freedom of expression,” after shots were fired. Just hours later, a second shooting outside a Copenhagen synagogue left two dead and five police officers wounded.

DHS Grants DACA to Illegal Alien Charged with Murder
Rangel Hernandez
Last Friday, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Leon Rodriguez admitted the agency had granted DACA to Emmanuel Jesus Rangel Hernandez, an illegal alien now charged with the murder of four, even though a federal crime database indicated he was a gang member. (Letter to Chairman Grassley, Apr. 17, 2015;, Apr. 22, 2015; see FAIR Legislative Update, Mar. 3, 2015) Rodriguez admitted the gross error in response to inquiries made by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) about USCIS’ approvals of gang-affiliated DACA applicants. The murders with which Rodriguez is charged took place in Senator Tillis’ hometown. (See FAIR Legislative Update, Mar. 24, 2015; Letter to Johnson, Mar. 20, 2015)

In his letter to the Senators, Director Rodriguez also confirmed that Mr. Rangel Hernandez was already in removal proceedings when he applied for DACA in January 2013 because he had been arrested in 2012 for drug possession. (Letter to Chairman Grassley, Apr. 17, 2015) But despite the drug charge and his documented gang affiliation, USCIS approved his DACA application. (Id.) His deportation proceedings were closed. (Id.) Rodriguez conceded USCIS should have checked the database and should not have approved his application. (Id.)

Director Rodriguez also stated USCIS had recently conducted a query of all approved DACA cases in the same federal database to discover gang affiliations and found 49 individuals with records in the database indicating “known or suspected” gang affiliation. (Id.) Twenty of these, he said, had records indicating gang affiliation at the time their applications were approved, another 13 had records entered after being approved for DACA, and one had a record entered during the DACA adjudication process. These cases, Rodriguez said, “are being reviewed.” (Id.) Fifteen were vetted and determined not to be gang members. (Id.) Moreover, he claimed, approvals of known gang members and gang affiliates were “in error.” (Id.) He noted that an increasing number of DACA applications have been denied because of gang-affiliation: 28 in FY 2013; 131 in FY 2014; and 123 in FY 2015. (Id.)

Senator Grassley blasted USCIS for its careless administration of DACA. (Grassley Press Release, Apr. 21, 2015) He said Rodriguez’s letter “confirms” his fear that USCIS’s review of DACA applications is wholly inadequate to protect public safety. (Id.) “It’s no secret,” he said, “that USCIS staff is under intense pressure to approve every DACA application that comes across their desk.” (Id.) Senator Tillis agreed. He said that “USCIS needs to immediately start performing detailed criminal background checks” to prevent tragedies like the murders in his own state from occurring in the future.



Islam, Muslims, Terrorists, Islamists. Muhammad, jihad, Koran, Hadiths, Taqiyya, Tawriya, Violent, Americans, Bridgette Gabriel gives a spot on lecture about the intent, strategy, methods and goal of the radical Muslims trying to dismantle and destroy America. She also emphasizes the problem we have with the so called Muslims living here in our country who are not speaking up. The Muslim people have been targeting America for years by embedding themselves in out legal, educational and political system to influence the liberal and ignorant “Useful Idiots” on Capitol Hill.

ISIS Camp a Few Miles from Texas, Mexican Authorities Confirm
APRIL 14, 2015

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

Law enforcement and intelligence sources report the area around Anapra is dominated by the Vicente Carrillo Fuentes Cartel (“Juárez Cartel”), La Línea (the enforcement arm of the cartel) and the Barrio Azteca (a gang originally formed in the jails of El Paso). Cartel control of the Anapra area make it an extremely dangerous and hostile operating environment for Mexican Army and Federal Police operations.

According to these same sources, “coyotes” engaged in human smuggling – and working for Juárez Cartel – help move ISIS terrorists through the desert and across the border between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico. To the east of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, cartel-backed “coyotes” are also smuggling ISIS terrorists through the porous border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas. These specific areas were targeted for exploitation by ISIS because of their understaffed municipal and county police forces, and the relative safe-havens the areas provide for the unchecked large-scale drug smuggling that was already ongoing.

Mexican intelligence sources report that ISIS intends to exploit the railways and airport facilities in the vicinity of Santa Teresa, NM (a US port-of-entry). The sources also say that ISIS has “spotters” located in the East Potrillo Mountains of New Mexico (largely managed by the Bureau of Land Management) to assist with terrorist border crossing operations. ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities; the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, NM; Ft. Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM.

On Monday April 13, Muslim Terror leaders were walking around the United States Congress demanding that our elected Representatives change federal law thereby making it harder to investigate Muslim terrorists. I know, crazy stuff, but it is happening right in broad daylight! Thank Allah that we at The United West are experts at investigating Muslim Brotherhood terrorists and exposing their influence operations for all Americans to understand and properly respond. To accomplish this we are launched a five-part investigative series entitled: “Muslim Terrorists Lobby 114th Congress.” Our show today, features retired CIA Operations Officer, Clare Lopez who specifically identifies several Muslim Brother terror leaders who are organizers of this Congressional influence operation. Currently Clare is the Vice-President of Research and Analysis for the Center for Security Policy in Washington DC. Our investigative team also raises the very serious question – Why in the world should an elected Member of Congress give any time to KNOWN terrorists who have a written agenda that includes destroying the essence of the Capitol building in which they are meeting? Watch this show as it is FULL of critically important information to help all Americans properly, professionally and legally DEFEAT this Muslim Brotherhood political influence operation.



Published on Apr 9, 2015
A newly discovered document proves that Grover Norquist, top GOP moneyman, sponsored in October 23rd 2000 an anti-Israel pro-HAMAS and pro-Hezbollah rally in front of the White House in Lafayette Park. The rally was run and led by the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi who pleaded guilty to financing terrorism and conspiracy to assassinate then-Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah. Al-Amoudi is currently serving a 23 year sentence in federal prison. Al-Amoudi who is co-founder of the Islamic Institute with Grover Norquist is seen on video in the Oct 23 rally screaming his support for al-Qaeda and Hezbollah both of which are specially designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO).

The newly discovered document found on the Islamic Institutes website in their weekly Friday brief demonstrably proves that Norquist’s organization was the organizational and contact body for the event dubbed: “March and Rally in Washington Against Israeli Aggression.”

On October 23, 2000, there will be a march and rally in front of the White House in Washington, D.C., to protest Israel’s aggression against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its escalating use of violence toward the Palestinian people. The march and rally are being organized by the National Task Force for the Crisis in Jerusalem (NTFCJ), a coalition of national American Muslim organizations of which the Islamic Institute is a part. The march begins at 11:00am at Freedom Plaza, and will move to Lafayette Park in front of the White House where a rally will begin at 12:00pm.

It is highly important that the Muslim community in the U.S. demonstrates a show of solidarity by attending this event. A strong presence will emphasize the call of American Muslims for peace and justice in Jerusalem and Palestine. Buses are being chartered nationwide to bring supporters to Washington. For further information, contact the Islamic Institute via phone or e-mail, or the American Muslim Council at (202) 789-2262.
Members of the NTFCJ are: the American Muslim Council, the American Muslim Alliance, American Muslims for Jerusalem, the Council on American Islamic Relations, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Institute, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and the Muslim Student Association.

When asked by Glenn Beck if he (Grover Norquist) sponsored the event Norquist replied that it was a mistake by and intern and that his organization, the Islamic Institute, had no direct involvement or planning of the rally – a direct contradiction of the Organizations weekly brief.

Clearly the Islamic Institute was the planner, primary sponsor, organizer and leader of the anti-Israel in October of 2000 and in possible violation of 18 U.S. Code § 2339A – Providing material support to terrorist.




Mullahs follow negotiating tactic handed down by Muhammad

Secretary of State John Kerry talks with President Barack Obama. The two have led the way in getting Iran to sign a treaty on nuclear weapons in return for elimination of sactions.

Secretary of State John Kerry talks with President Barack Obama. The two have led the way in getting Iran to sign a treaty on nuclear weapons in return for elimination of sactions.

Did President Obama get hoodwinked by the Iranians because of his ignorance of an ancient, time-tested negotiating tactic ingrained in Islamic law?

The president’s secular Marxist mindset, which tends to downplay the importance of religion in all aspects of politics, may have left him easy pickings for an Iranian team skilled in the art of Islamic deception, says the author of two best-selling books and a documentary about Islam’s apocalyptic ambitions.

Joel Richardson, author of the New York Times-best seller “The Islamic Antichrist” followed by “Mideast Beast,” looks at the preliminary nuclear deal between Iran and the U.S. with five other world powers and sees the markings of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.

“If one wishes to have even a basic understanding of the underlying principles involved in Middle East politics, then one must first understand the history and implications of the Treaty of Hudaibiyah,” Richardson told WND.

He believes Obama committed a “brazenly amateur” gaffe by failing to understand who he was dealing with – an Iranian regime steeped in Islamic law.

The rules the mullahs follow trace back to the life and example of Muhammad, he said. “And one of the most important tactical victories in Muhammad’s career is what is known as the Treaty of Hudaibiyah.”

Muhammad made this treaty with the pagan Quraysh tribe of Mecca, which was the most powerful tribe in the region at the time.

The Qurayshis entered into a 10-year peace pact with Muhammad and lived to regret it.

It appeared to be a lopsided treaty in favor of the Qurayshis. For instance, if one of Muhammad’s followers wanted to leave and join the Qurayshis, they were free to do so. But if one of the Qurayshis wished to become a Muslim, they were to be rejected and returned to the Quraysh.

But Muhammad saw an opportunity.

Freed from any military threat from the most powerful tribe in the region, he suddenly “received a revelation” from Allah, Richardson said.

This revelation can be found in Surah 48 of the Quran. It begins with “Surely We (Allah) have given to you a clear victory.”

With the Quravshis sidelined, Muhammad began attacking several large Jewish tribes in Arabia.

Any men who joined the Muslims in war would receive a significant share of the plunder, booty, slaves and female prisoners.

The Jewish villages fell like Dominos, and the wealth of the Jews became that of the Muslims.

Within two years, the Muslims went from about 1,200 men to more than 10,000.

Muhammad then launched a surprise attack on the Qurayshis and defeated them. The Muslims stood alone as the most powerful group in the Arabian Peninsula.

“The takeaway is that Muslims today look to the example of Muhammad and the Treaty of Hudaibiyah as one of the primary go-to strategies to defeat their enemies,” Richardson said. “Enter into a treaty, a covenant, a ceasefire. But it is only for the purpose of gaining strength to eventually defeat your enemy.

“Muslims today clearly understand ‘Hudaibiya’ to be a code-word which, in brief, means ‘kiss the hand of your enemy until you have the opportunity to cut it off.’”

Ingrained in Islamic legal teaching

Dr. Andrew Bostom has studied Islamic jurisprudence for years and written five books about the history of jihad and Shariah, including “Legacy of Jihad” and “Sharia Versus Freedom.”

Bostom addresses the principle of Hudaibiya as it relates to the current nuclear deal in his new book, “Iran’s Final Solution for Israel.”

“It is a principle of Islamic law, that as a Muslim leader, as a Muslim society, you’re not supposed to sign a treaty for longer than 10 years. It is based on Muhammad,” Bostom told WND. “It’s a well-enshrined doctrine, and you are to enter into a deal like this only when you’re in a position of weakness.”

The deal the Obama administration negotiated with Iran expires after 10 years. Iran has been under harsh economic sanctions for decades, and oil prices have fallen to the lowest level in a decade.

Bostom says all the classical Islamic jurists have accepted Hudaibiya as a binding principle.

In fact, in December 2013, Iranian leaders talking about the negotiations with the six world powers were openly referring to Hudaibiyah.

“In my book is a very pertinent example: Within three weeks of when the initial announcement was made in December 2013 about the plan to reach an agreement an adviser to former Iranian President Khatami actually invoked the treaty of Hudaibiyah,” he said. “So you can see how it’s used to illustrate exactly this deal.”

Bostom also documents in his book that the U.S. State Department has been aware of the Islamic view of treaties with non-Muslim countries since 1880:

“Edward A. Van Dyck, then U.S. Consular Clerk at Cairo, Egypt, prepared a detailed report in August, 1880 on the history of the treaty arrangements (so-called ‘capitulations’) between the Muslim Ottoman Empire, European nations, and the much briefer U.S.-Ottoman experience. Van Dyck’s report – written specifically as a tool for State Department diplomats – opens with an informed, clear, and remarkably concise explanation of jihad and Islamic law.” (“Iran’s Final Solution for Israel, Page 74)

“The Muslim jurists teach that Muslim rulers are never to make a lasting peace with unbelievers but can only make temporary truces, ‘to be broken at the pleasure by the prince and in the interest of the believers,’” Van Dyck wrote in 1880, quoting from the works of Abu al-Hussein el-Quduri of the Hanafite School of doctors, who died in 1037 A.D.

“This is a cardinal principle of Islamic law, not just something from Muhammad’s lore or Muhammad’s past,” Bostom told WND. “This is Islamic law. Muhammad is just cited as the precedent for it, but it’s embedded in their law that you don’t engage in any sort of negotiation or treaty unless you’re in some position of weakness; otherwise, you just keep waging jihad.”

The 1880 State Department document “lays it all out there, all the facts,” Bostom said. “But that was back when we still had knowledgeable people, actually educated people, handling things in our government.”

Peace with one’s enemies is never the end-game for those who follow Islamic law, Richardson said, but the Obama administration is either ignorant of this principle or willfully cooperating with it.

Yasser Arafat caught red-handed employing Hudaibiya

He points to another case in modern history where the Hudaibiya card was played against the Israelis.

In May 1994, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat addressed a group of Muslims in Johannesburg, South Africa. Arafat didn’t know he was being secretly recorded. At this time, things were looking good for the Middle East peace process. During this speech, Arafat spoke of the ongoing “jihad to liberate Jerusalem.”

Those Israelis who had trusted Arafat’s previous promises of peace and goodwill were stunned.

But even more damaging to the peace process were Arafat’s comments about the treaty of Hudaibyah, Richardson said.

Referring to the peace pact he’d only recently made with Israel, Arafat was recorded as saying:

“I see this agreement as being no more than the agreement signed between our Prophet Muhammad and the Quraysh in Mecca. … The prophet had been right to insist on the agreement, for it helped him defeat the Quraysh and take over their city of Mecca. In a similar spirit, we now accept the peace agreement, but [only in order] to continue on the road to Jerusalem.”

‘They danced circles around our president’

The Iranian regime, perhaps better than any in the Middle East, knows how to play the long game, Richardson said.

“They are brilliant strategists. Today, they are celebrating the gullibility of the Obama administration in making such significant concessions, and agreeing (purportedly) to lift sanctions. They danced circles around our president.”

It is no coincidence that Obama’s deal with Iran last 10 years, precisely like Muhammad’s so-called treaty with the Qurayshis.

After the 10 years, the Iranians would then be free to continue work on their nuclear weapons, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

“The problem is, they will never actually stop,” Richardson said, citing a Times of Israel report. “They will continue work on day one.”

“Our president has been taken, the American people have been made fools, and the security of Israel has been sacrificed on the altar of Obama’s legacy. That legacy however is already dissipating in thin air even before the ink is dry.”

Persia comes back to bite

Carl Gallups, author of “Final Warning,” sees prophetic significance in Obama’s preliminary deal with Iran.

“The Iran/Obama ‘deal’ that has been drafted thus far appears absolutely ludicrous to many,” he told WND. “It seems as though it is an agreement only attained when the crafty ones with whom you are ‘negotiating’ get a whiff of your fear, your trepidation, your weakness.”

The comparison to the treaty of Hudaibiyah is especially profound when considering the fact that Iran is the modern name for the heartland of the ancient Persian Empire.

It is from the modern region of today’s Iran that Persian emperor Cyrus the Great united the Medes and other Iranian empires, and then further expanded Persian influence by swallowing up the decaying Babylonian empire.

“Of course, it was also from the ancient Persian Empire where the decree to ‘kill all the Jews in the land’ was signed into effect by King Artaxerxes through the plot of his viceroy, Haman,” Gallups said. “It seems to many prophecy watchers of today that those attitudes of ancient Persia might have come full circle.”

The majority of Israelis certainly fear so, re-electing Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu as their prime minister last month. A week before that election, he made the landmark speech to the U.S. Congress on March 3, which is the Fast of Esther on the Hebrew calendar.

“Who can forget Netanyahu’s biblical overtones when he addressed the U.S. Congress? In that speech, he made the direct parallel between ancient Persia, modern Iran, and Iran’s current and expressed desire to destroy Israel,” Gallups noted.

Netanyahu said:

“We’re an ancient people. In our nearly 4,000 years of history, many have tried repeatedly to destroy the Jewish people. Tomorrow night, on the Jewish holiday of Purim, we’ll read the Book of Esther. We’ll read of a powerful Persian viceroy named Haman, who plotted to destroy the Jewish people some 2,500 years ago.”

Netanyahu was already aware that back in 2014 the commander of the Basij militia of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Reza Naqdi, announced that Iran was escalating its efforts to arm West Bank Palestinians for war against Israel, according to the Times of Israel. He went on to declare this action would ultimately lead to Israel’s “annihilation.”

Parallels to Esther, Haman

Then there’s the fact that the six world powers and Iran announced they had reached a framework for a deal on April 2, which was Nisan 13 on the Hebrew calendar.

Esther 3:12, 13, says that on Nisan 13 the Persian king Ahasuerus was tricked by a viceroy, Haman, into signing an agreement to destroy all the Jews in the land at a future date. This was also the day before the third of three blood moons, or lunar eclipses. Blood moons often mean war is coming to Israel, according to Jewish sages.

It was not long after Netanyahu’s speech to Congress that Naqdi then proclaimed “erasing Israel off the map” is “nonnegotiable.”

“It is not a new revelation to Netanyahu, or much of the rest of the world for that matter, that the ultimate destruction of Israel is Iran’s passionate and apocalyptically driven end game,” Gallups said. “Apparently, Obama missed the memo somewhere along the way. Some speculate that Obama is actually, knowingly or unknowingly, fueling the fires of that ominous and highly potential scenario.”

The opening words of the treaty of Hudaibiyah are:

“In your name, O God!
This is the treaty of peace between Muhammad Ibn Abdullah and Suhayl ibn Amr. They have agreed to allow their arms to rest for ten years. During this time each party shall be secure, and neither shall injure the other; no secret damage shall be inflicted, but honesty and honour shall prevail between them.” (Learning Islam 8. Islamic Services Foundation. 2009. P. D14.)

Those words could have easily been copied into the current Iranian “agreement,” Gallups believes.

“Now we learn, after the current Obama/Iran deal has been negotiated, that Iran will begin using its latest generation IR-8 centrifuges as soon as its nuclear deal with the world powers goes into effect.”

Netanyahu denounced the deal as a “historic mistake.”

He warned the agreement bore the terrible chance of causing “a horrific war.” The fear is that the deal will leave much of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure intact while not addressing Iran’s support for hostile militant groups in the region.

Netanyahu also insisted that any final agreement with Iran must contain “a clear and unambiguous recognition of Israel’s right to exist.” At this point, it does not appear this stipulation is anywhere in the agreement.

Iran’s President Hassan Rohani said in a national address last Friday that the Iranians will “remain loyal and stand by the promises” they made, and that they “do not seek to deceive” the international community.

Richardson, Bostom and Gallups will be watching
