Capital Research Center has just released the second of its Dangerous Documentaries, America Under Siege: Soviet Islam. I can say without hesitation that this is the most important documentary released this year. Veteran researcher Trevor Loudon joins leading foreign policy experts to explain the nexus between international Communism and radical Islam.
This is a must-see documentary.
Anyone who has studied 20th Century history will know this rings true. During WWII, Islamists seeking to advance their cause in the Middle East joined with the Nazis, but with the Nazi defeat they lost their benefactors. The Soviet Union was quick to step in, creating its own Middle East proxies. In the 1970s, the Soviet KGB sent 4,000 agents into the Muslim world to cultivate connections and lure radical Muslims into the Soviet sphere. The Soviet KGB created the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and supported other terrorist groups with arms, training and anti-Israel, anti-American propaganda.
It also created the International Association for Palestine. One of that group’s members was Nihad Awad, currently the director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Awad came to endorse the terrorist group HAMAS, and today CAIR is at the forefront of efforts to shut down free speech and intimidate anyone who questions the tenets of Islam as “haters” and “Islamophobes.”
Meanwhile, he is advancing the Russians’ shared cause of bringing America to its knees. While we are being beset by incidents of Islamic terrorism, including the deadliest mass shooting in American history last year in Orlando, Florida, Islamists within our own government are preventing us from investigating these groups. This is poignantly reflected in the lack of enthusiasm for one of the most important pieces of legislation recently proposed: H.R. 377, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act.
The film makes solid connections between Islamist organizations in the U.S. like CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood front, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Putin-sponsored Russian organizations. It also reveals how they are working with Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA organizations – all actually communist groups who admit their goal is to destroy our nation. Donald Trump is just the latest excuse. Soviet Islam names names and organizations. It reveals the depth of the treachery ongoing in America today.
I repeat: this is a must-see documentary. Take the 26 minutes now to watch it, share it and make it go viral. If our “leaders” have any stomach left for leadership, perhaps this will finally spur them to join the effort to save our Republic.
