Terrorism expert is lone voice against jihadism; Frank Gaffney, Jr., of the Center for Security Policy delivers tutorial on “Islamofascism” to overflow crowd at Washington Briefing Values Voter Summit

(Christian Action Network) WASHINGTON DC – His 45-minute scheduled “Breakout” session Saturday afternoon was the lone event at the Washington Briefing Values Voter Summit focused on the jihadist threat in America as a matter of social concern.

Frank Gaffney, Jr., of the Center for Security Policy, tutored the overflow crowd of more than 150 about the rising Islamic ideology that presents America with “nothing less than a war for the free world,” he said.

Meanwhile, an estimated equal number had to turn away for lack of facilitation at the summit event hosted by the Family Research Council, an organization stating a devotion to research and action against sociological and political threats to the safety and well being of families.

Gaffney defended his use of the term Islamofascism in a response to a barbed question posed to him by Inter-Press reporter Ali Gharib, an Iranian national.

“It goes to the core of what is most dangerous to us especially with regards to this ideology,” Gaffney said. “I use the term to focus on their ideology. My purpose is to help distinguish between them and [other Muslims].”

Gaffney said there are “anti-Islamist” Muslims “out there, unfortunately, they are few and far between…There is a large number who want simply to practice their faith and not be under a totalitarian regime,” he added.

“We are in a global struggle, a war for the free world – we must be in it full-force. If we don’t do it now, we will later – if not now, it will be much harder later, and it will be our children or grand children making a far greater sacrifice – but it will take place.”

Gaffney said U.S. President George W. Bush, in a move to improve his image before wealthy Islamic Saudi Arabians who hinted at names such as racist and bigot toward him, recently paid a friendly visit to a radical Wahabist mosque celebrating 50 years in America.

“He was completely oblivious to the fact that he was legitimizing the very enemies who attacked us on September 11, 2001,” Gaffney said, referring to Wahibism as the ideological school that jihadist leaders get their recruits from to plot jihad, including planed murder-suicide raids.

On Iran, Gaffney said he could see a military showdown looming. “They have actually been at war with us since 1979,” he said, referring to the Iranian fatwa for jihad, the Islamic law version for what in the nations of western civilization is a legal declaration of war.

“Do I believe we will have to attack and invade Iran sometime in the future, my answer is yes,” he added.

Gaffney said it is important for Americans to prepare for war and future jihad attacks, including opposition to such things as the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, which he said would put an anti-American legislative body in charge of 70 percent of the earth’s surface.

“The Bush Administration is willing to have this treaty ratified, unfortunately,” he said, adding that Senators should know it could hinder America’s global naval responsiveness in the future.

Gaffney also said, “The Bush Administration is now telling us that the World Court’s authority trumps domestic law – is that what we want?”

He offered a book, an edited collection of 10 steps for Americans to take in order to gain “War Footing” to win the jihadist war that is taking place. [watch CAN for upcoming book review]

“We need to challenge the totalitarian threats of today as well as our forefathers tackled the totalitarian threats of their day, and God help us if we don’t,” he said.

Gharib, in comments to a CAN news reporter said inside Iran are many who follow popular western programs. “They watch satellite TV, it’s a pretty westernized society,” he said. His take on the jihadist threat? “Moslem terrorists, like all terrorists, are a threat,” he said.

  1. Frank Gaffney is not a “terrorism expert”. He is a pimp for those chickenhawk careerists inside the beltway who want the US to become an empire so that they can have secure jobs as self-proclaimed “experts”.

    His fear-mongering is so amateurish that one would think that anyone who understood – eg Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid…for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” – would also understand that such fear-mongering is an attempt to subvert God and, in his place, substitute the one doing the fear-mongering.

    It is stunning – though sadly not surprising – that a blog called “Christian Action Network” would even remotely want to be associated with the rise of a new Roman Empire and these oh-so-full-of-pride “experts”. Shame on you.

    There are actual terrorism experts out there. In particular, Michael Scheuer who created and headed up the CIA’s AlQaeda/Osama unit. Unfortunately, the analysis of real experts is based on reason and actual threat assessment. Not very amenable to whipping people into a frenzy. All Frank Gaffney and his ilk can do is whip people into mindless frenzy. Enabled by sites like yours.
