Co-Conspirators Muslim Student Associations (MSAs) Against “Countering Violent Extremism” Measures

ByPamela Geller on February 22, 2015

Despite Obama’s summit to dawah and the spread of Islam under the guise of “Countering Violent Extremism” Muslim student groups (tied to terrorist orgs, of course) are widely denouncing the weak and diluted programs to fight terror. Any attempt to stop the islamization of America will be met with aggressive and hostile pushback by Muslim supremacists. They expect us to just lie down and submit. Anything less is “islamophobic.”

Obama’s “CVE” was just soft, it was embarrassing; but such accommodation to Islamic demands gives way to more demands.

MSA, Muslim Brotherhood student  groups named unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, have widely denounced Obama’s CVE framework.

The MSAs are terror-tied organization(s) that make life living hell for Jewish students on college campuses and work to impose Islam and sharia nationwide.


Muslim Student Associations Across CA Against Federal Government’s Countering Violent Extremism Programs

We, the undersigned Muslim Student Associations (MSAs) and MSA West express grave concerns with the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) framework. We oppose the creation of pilot programs that are planned to be launched in various cities across the nation, including Los Angeles, Boston and Minneapolis, and do not support the organizations that are aligning with CVE’s programs.

As MSA leaders, we are concerned about the reinforcement that CVE provides to the stereotypes that Muslims are security threats, as well as the climate of fear the surveillance program will create, especially amongst Muslim youth. CVE solely targets and stigmatizes the Muslim community; with the entire focus of Countering Violent Extremism programs being on the Muslim community, the federal government is conflating extremist violence with Islam and feeding into the prejudiced and false portrayal that the majority of violent threats are coming from the American Muslim community, when in reality, most incidents of violent extremism in the United States are from non-Muslim sources.According to Pew’s population estimate of 2.6 million Muslims living in the United States in 2010, and further data on the number of individuals that have been arrested for potential acts of terrorism linked to Al-Qaeda, these individuals only represent 0.0002% of the Muslim population in the United States. By creating programs and initiatives that are targeting the average Muslim in America based on the 0.0002% of the radicalized population is creating an unjust and false assumption that this radicalization is widespread within the community and should be countered on a national level.

Furthermore, the CVE framework is rooted in the flawed “radicalization theory” which claims that there is a fixed trajectory to radicalization with indicators that, if detected early on, can be interrupted through intervention. Examples of indicators used in this theory as signs of radicalization include growing beards, increasing involvement in social activism and community issues, and “wearing traditional Islamic clothing.” These so-called signs of radicalization discourage Muslims from practicing their faith, creates a sense of paranoia in the community by eroding trust amongst community members, and threatens our constitutionally protected first-amendment rights to freedom of religion, expression and assembly. This theory has been debunked by a multitude of studies on radicalization, yet is still being used in the Department of Homeland Security’s approach to working with the Muslim community in the United States and as a model for CVE programs.

Currently, we are facing a rise in anti-Muslim sentiment and bigotry across the nation as Muslims in America are being targeted in hate crimes. Last week, the nation witnessed the murder of three young, Muslim students, Yusor Abu-Salha, Razan Abu-Salha, and Deah Barakat in what appears to be a religiously-motivated hate crime. The sentiments of fear and feeling unsafe are reverberating throughout the Muslim community already, and through CVE, the federal government is undermining the concerns of Muslims in America and further perpetuating tensions and a hostile environment for Muslims.

As leaders of our MSAs, and advocates for social equity and protection of civil liberties for all Americans, we firmly stand in opposition to the Countering Violent Extremism programs to ensure that our American Muslim community is not mistreated and that our youth are able to live their lives free from fear of surveillance, racial and religious profiling, and as strong, active members of their communities.

    All of them Terrorist organizations hell bent on jihad.

      Tru dat. But a cracka rote dat shit.

  • Darrell Standing
    There’s an article at the link which is a must read … the plan has been ongoing since the 80s … there is a link within that takes you to a PDF file as well … both in Arabic and English! They have been boiling the frog of the West for a long time … low and slow!

      No wonder Egypt’s Al Sisi is either executing the previous gang of MoBro Hoods or giving them long jail terms and it is illegal for them to form a political party. Yet here we have BO/BS were on their side and now he is overtly consorting with them plus they are forming a political party in the US. The Congress must act to remove the Islamophile crazy who is occupying the White House…we’re waiting….Congress?

    PEGIDA UK to Bring Anti-Islamization Demonstrations to Britain as First Meeting Given Go-Ahead

    Britain’s own chapter of counter-Islamisation group PEGIDA has got the go ahead from police to hold its first demonstration in Newcastle next Saturday, with speeches expected from organizers and anti-Islamism speaker Paul Weston.
    Quoting The River War, an autobiographical account of Churchill’s experience of recapturing the Sudan published in 1899, Weston read aloud:

    “Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.”

    “Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.”

    “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith”.

    You are right, the MSA is not a group interested in promoting respect for other faiths. A progressive Muslim group would offer to partner with their local communities to mentor young people against the efforts to “radicalize” or recruit young people into terrorist groups. Instead the MSA website offers an intro to Islam by Dr. Jamal Badawi, member of Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR offering lots of jibberjabber about Islam as the final and only authentic revelation and promoting anti-separation of mosque and state as the Muslim ideal, etc. ( and )

  • Unapologetic American

    Please! Please! Please! When referencing the MSA (Muslim Students Association) NEVER forget to include in the article or post that Huma Abedin, the “bodywoman” and KEY ADVISER on “Islamic matters” for closeted lesbian Hillary Clinton was an officer of her college’s MSA and that her parents were founding members of BOTH The Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim Sisterhood. The fact is the Abedins’ have for decades lobbied the Clintons’ to oust Mubarack in Egypt and now are targeting Al-Sisi in an attempt to reinstall Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi as head of the Nile nation.

  • Nicholas

    That’s exactly what the MSAs want, to stop any surveillance of their Mosques, of their associations,but then if that is granted to them we have no sure way of checking for potential radical and terrorist related grant them their demands would be foolish in the extreme on the part of the Federal Government.

  • steve wieters

    This group is just plain EVIL. I will not submit to their demands. I reject Islam. I reject Muslims. As long as they lie, commit acts of violence toward Jews and Christians and anyone that stands in their way. They SHOULD. Be watched. Closely!

    • notislam

      They are the NAZI-ISLAM-0’S and reflect the climate that Nazi Germany had in the 1930’s — dangerous and revealing. It is repeating itself only worse-don’t you think?

  • BonniePrinceCharlie

    Whatever happened to the Committee for Un-American Activities?

    • disqus_HlH4Faibhw

      Yeah!! Time to bring that back!

  • Bonnetierre

    Islamists will use any “vehicle” to further their cause.

    Their agenda is being exposed. When the light turn on the cockroaches scatter.

  • disqus_HlH4Faibhw

    Looks like they’re all out here in California.. Figures.

  • notislam

    They seem to omit ISLAM-0-NAZI STUDENT ORG. –THAT’S the whole truth isn’t it??
    In Davis they make the swastikas on the Jewish Frat. house —what more will there be?

  • Ampbreia

    No one who supports Hamas, Hizbollah, or any other terrorist group can be called innocent of terrorism. The MSA has a long history of supporting these. If they are uncomfortable with reaping what they’ve sown, then maybe they’d better just move to Dar Islam where that sort of thing is okay.
