Anti-Muslim ACT! for America Urges Counterterrorism Program


Update — Octo­ber 29, 2013: Act! for Amer­ica founder and pres­i­dent Brigitte Gabriel announced the launch of “The Thin Blue Line” project on Octo­ber 28, 2013.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and pres­i­dent of ACT! for Amer­ica, an orga­ni­za­tion pro­mot­ing the idea that Islam is a back­ward and sedi­tious polit­i­cal ide­ol­ogy, has issued an appeal to sup­port­ers to enlist their help to con­front changes tak­ing place in law enforce­ment train­ing pro­grams across the nation.

Address­ing recent con­tro­ver­sies regard­ing the use of anti-Muslim mate­ri­als in coun­tert­er­ror­ism train­ing courses, Muslim-American civil rights orga­ni­za­tions have demanded that train­ing mate­ri­als be reviewed and expunged of offend­ing content.

To counter what Gabriel terms as “polit­i­cal cor­rect­ness,” ACT! for Amer­ica has launched “The Thin Blue Line Project,” a project that will over­see the cre­ation of a web­site designed by and for law enforce­ment pro­fes­sion­als. Accord­ing to Gabriel, this project and web­site will eas­ily pro­vide the resources and infor­ma­tion law enforce­ment offi­cials need in order to com­bat the doc­trine of jihad, Islamic ter­ror­ism, and orga­ni­za­tions affil­i­ated with the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood in America.

“Those on the Thin Blue Line need to under­stand the ide­ol­ogy dri­ving the ter­ror­ism. They need to be able to con­nect the dots between what these jihadists believe…They need to under­stand the ‘threat doc­trine’,” Gabriel says in her appeal for support.

To make this project a real­ity, ACT! for Amer­ica is call­ing on con­cerned mem­bers, known as “Patriot Part­ners,” to donate $11 per month to make “The Thin Blue Line Project” possible.

In her writ­ings and pub­lic appear­ances, Gabriel often por­trays Islam as a threat. For exam­ple, in her book They Must Be Stopped; Why We Must Defeat Rad­i­cal Islam and How We Can Do It, Gabriel wrote, “It is not yet polit­i­cally cor­rect to talk about a reli­gious war. But this is exactly what we are fac­ing: a reli­gious war declared by devout Muslims….It’s not rad­i­cal Islam. It’s what Islam is at its core.”

Ear­lier this year, in a New Year’s mes­sage to ACT! mem­bers, Gabriel asked sup­port­ers to come together and sup­port the “Patriot Part­ner Cam­paign,” a cam­paign designed to intro­duce addi­tional anti-Shariah bills in U.S. states through­out the 2012 leg­isla­tive ses­sion. In a mes­sage pro­mot­ing the cam­paign, Gabriel said, “We are fac­ing an enemy in rad­i­cal Islam that’s using our laws, our open-mindedness, and our tol­er­ance against us.”

    Yes, the ADL will next have us believ­ing the tow­ers never came down on 9–11-01.

    Wake up ADL, when their strength becomes suf­fi­cient, rad­i­cal Islamists will be going after “the Sat­ur­day peo­ple” first.

    Brigitte Gabriel believes there are mod­er­ate Mus­lims who hate the evils of sharia law and jihad just as much as any sane per­son would. You do truth a huge dis­ser­vice to imply otherwise.

    She is one of the bravest women on the planet for being will­ing to pub­licly state these truths. Quit shoot­ing her in the back with your ill-logic.

    What is wrong with the Board of Direc­tors at the ADL? It’s obvi­ous to any level-headed Amer­i­can that Islamists are at war with Amer­ica and west­ern val­ues. By find­ing fault with orga­ni­za­tions such as ACT for Amer­ica, the ADL is aid­ing America’s enemies.

    Brigitte is dead on with her group. The Mus­lim Broth­er­hoods own doc­u­ments spell out what they want to do. Good for Amer­i­can law enforcement!
