The Grand Jihad

"How Islam and the Left Sabotage America"

"The real threat to the United States is not terrorism. The real threat is the sophisticated forces of Islamism, which have collaborated with the American Left not only to undermine U.S. national security but to shred the fabric of American constitutional democracy. In The Grand Jihad, bestselling author Andrew C. McCarthy provides a harrowing account of how the global Islamist movement's jihad involves far more than terrorist attacks, and how it has found the ideal partner in President Barack Obama, whose Islamist sympathies run deep."



Israel is a theocracy ...

by jasonrobardas on

    Any individual in any part of the world is considered a citizen of Israel, if he or she is jewish . Just because of the person's ethnicity ....This is the nature of Zionism ....

    I dislike Hezbolla and Hamas as much as I dislike the militaristic regime of Israel that treats the palestinians as "second class citizens".....

     You Iranians need to be fair.....

why no mention of Terry Jones heroic act!

by Arash Kamangir on

How come there has not been any reaction or report of the heroic act of pastor Terry Jones who has burnt satanic book of koran and satan himself ( mohammad) in public? what else IR has to do to make us hate islam and its book ? Was rape, torture, corruption and exile not enough?


What a load of neocon gibberish


Nonsense throughout. Can't expect more from daft neocons like McCarthy.




A former federal prosecutor closely associated with U.S.
neoconservatism and Islamophobia, Andrew C. McCarthy is a political
pundit who serves as co-chair of the Center for Law and
Counterterrorism, a joint project of the National Review Institute[1] and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.[2]

A frequent contributor to the right-wing National Review,
McCarthy often focuses his invective on “Islamic supremacists” in the
Middle East and the purported failure of liberals to confront jihadists.
A case in point was his April 2012 National Review Online
article “Obama Funds the Egyptian Government.” Pointing to the decision
by the Barack Obama administration to release financial aid to Egypt,
where the Muslim Brotherhood fared well in early democratic elections,
McCarthy ridiculed the administration—as well as other members of what
he called the “useful-idiot brigade,” such as Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham—for attempting to engage the Brotherhood.[3]

In making his argument, McCarthy minimized differences between the Brotherhood and the Salafist movement.[4]
Referring to the Brotherhood’s presidential candidate Khairat
el-Shater, McCarthy wrote: “Shater is Washington’s new darling. That
much is clear from an unintentionally hilarious dispatch from the New York Times
David Kirkpatrick, who portrays the Brotherhood as America’s
‘indispensable ally against Egypt’s ultraconservatives.’ Sure, they may
be the world’s leading exemplar of what Kirkpatrick gently calls
‘political Islam,’ but our policy geniuses reckon the Brothers are much
to be preferred over the ‘Salafis’—reputedly, the more hardcore Islamic

The Muslim Brotherhood has long been a key topic of McCarthy’s writings. In a May 2010 article for the Washington Examiner,
McCarthy argued that both the Brotherhood and Salafists reject western
rationalism and the Christian unity of faith and reason, instead
favoring Sharia determinism. “Both support the development of
fundamentalist Muslim enclaves and the ultimate supplanting of American
constitutional democracy by Islamic law. Nonterrorist Islamists want to
overthrow the U.S. government every bit as much as the terrorists do.
They are not moderates. Their differences with the terrorists are over
means and methods, not goals.”[6]

Several months later, in August 2010, McCarthy posted an entry on the National Review blog
“The Corner” under the headline “The President Stands with Sharia.” The
blog claimed that President Obama’s defense of the “Ground Zero Mosque”
revealed that he was “governing against the will of the American
people,” and that he had decided to support the Muslim Brotherhood
instead of family members of the 9/11 attacks.[7]

Motivating McCarthy’s attacks is his clear aversion to the religion of
Islam. As he wrote during the controversial June 2011 hearings held by
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) on the purported radicalization of the
Muslim-American community: “What ‘radicalizes’ Muslims is Islam—the
mainstream interpretation of it. The ‘radicals’ propagating it do not
need the ‘captive audience’ provided by the prison environment. The
‘radicalization’ is happening in plain sight.”[8]

Along with Frank Gaffney, James Woolsey and others, McCarthy helped form a “Team B” approach to reviewing U.S. policy on Sharia, which he said was modeled after the controversial advisory group formed by then-CIA director George H.W. Bush in 1976 to reevaluate the strategy of détente.[9] In September 2010, the Center for Security Policy posted on its website their findings in a report entitled “Shariah: Threat to America,” which was roundly criticized by experts on Islam for effectively promoting the criminalization of the practice of Islam in the United States.[10] Among the report’s coauthors were McCarthy, Gaffney, Woolsey, Henry Cooper (High Frontier), Brian Kennedy (Claremont Institute), Clara Lopez (International Intelligence Summit, Clarion Fund), J. Michael Waller (Institute of World Politics), and David Yerushalmi (SANE).[11]

Conspiracy Monger

In addition to his diatribes on Islam, McCarthy has promoted a number
of far-fetched conspiracy theories, particularly with respect to
President Obama. For example, in 2008, he added his voice to a chorus of
right-wing voices calling into question whether then-Sen. Barack Obama
was born in the United States.[12]

Since President Obama’s election, McCarthy has argued that the
president isa “bridge figure between the Left and the Islamists,” that
his relationship to the Muslim world is “cagey,” and that he is not
being forthcoming about his Muslim roots.[13]
He has also called Obama a radical leftist, arguing that he is “an
Alinskyite,” referring to Chicago-born community organizer Saul Alinsky,
and a “fifth-column radical” who intends to overthrow the capitalist

Describing Obama’s handling of foreign policy, McCarthy has argued:
“Barack Obama is a wolf in ‘pragmatist’ clothing: Beneath the easy smile
and above-it-all manner—the ‘neutral’ doing his best to weigh competing
claims—is a radical leftist wedded to a Manichean vision that depicts
American imperialism as the primary evil in the world.”[15]

Early Track Record

McCarthy worked as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District
of New York for 18 years. From 1993 through 1996, he helped lead the
prosecution against the organization of Omar Abdel Rahman, which
resulted in the conviction of a dozen people on charges related to
terrorist plots, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and plots
to bomb other landmarks. He also worked on the prosecutions of the
bombers of the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya. Following the 9/11
attacks, he supervised the Justice Department’s Command Post near Ground
Zero in New York City.[16]

In 2004, the George W. Bush administration tapped McCarthy to serve as a special assistant to the deputy secretary of defense.[17]

McCarthy’s views on legal justice have shifted over the years. Hehas criticized the military commissions
system and private lawyers assisting detainees at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.
He called for creation of a national security court rather than trying
terrorism suspects in the civilian justice system.[18]

In addition to writing for the National Review, McCarthy is a frequent guest on conservative broadcast networks. He has also published several books, including The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America (Encounter Books, 2010); Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad (Encounter Books 2008), and How the Obama Administration Has Politicized Justice (Encounter’s “Broadsides” series, 2010).[19]

He has taught law at New York Law School and Fordham University’s School of Law.[20]

The message

by MRX1 on

This video  confirms what I have been saying for years,  Arabs gravitation towards islam is as natural as drinking water. Islam is arab's culture and they have no schidzophernic feelings about it.  The key question is when will we Iranian wake up and start process of self evaluation, self discovery, renessance, de-islamization and resurection of true Iran.


This video clip is the manifestation of why Iran Loves Israel!


Egypt’s women urge MPs not to pass early marriage, sex-after-death laws: report


Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) has appealed to the
Islamist-dominated parliament not to approve two controversial laws on
the minimum age of marriage and allowing a husband to have sex with his
dead wife within six hours of her death according to a report in an
Egyptian newspaper.


 Destruction of A-rabs!

Reunification of Iran and Israel is the only solution.

by Simorgh5555 on

Muslims are human beings trapped by inside an evil pervasive death cult called the Koran. 

If you were to love Iran then it would be natural to have more affection to the state of Israel than sympathy with Palestinian and Islamic causes.



This video is non-sensical!

by jasonrobardas on

It is obviously vilifying Obama ....So much nonsense.....If he has such deep sympathy for Islam and moslems , why is he pandering to the jewish government all the way ? He has no qualms about expressing his love of Israel explicitly!.......


Well, Pendar Jan

by Simorgh5555 on

There are plenty of other countries under occupation and not just the occupied territories which is part of your obsession. Its just a shame you cannot be balanced enough or accpet the reality that your love for the Palestinians is unrequited. They don't love you and they don't want your help. Its as simple as that.

"of Abu Musa and the islands of Lesser and Greater Tunbs"

by Republican جمهوریخواه on

One nation's dispute over its territory, doesn't settle or invoke those of other words, Israel's (criminal)occupation should end at once in order to invalidate the appeal of the "Islamists" in the Arab world............


Edward Said and 'Arabian Gulf'

by Simorgh5555 on

How do you feel about the Palestinian's most eloquent and famous advocate Edward Said's use of the ter, 'Arabian Gulf'?

 "There are many reasons for this war. One of them is oil, and it is not a coincidence that Afghanistan near the Caspian Sea is in a direct line with the oil supplies and regions of the Arabian Gulf - all of which fall under direct American military and political hegemony in the event of a war. Although there is a hegemony right now, what the US seek are the assurances of vast oil supplies, the guaranteed control of this enormously important resource."


Where is the Palestinian Pendare Nik?  


Pendar Jan-'Of'' pre-1967 borders

by Simorgh5555 on

Since you repeatedly insist on Israel returning to its pre-1967 borders what is your reaction to the Palestinain Secretary General Tayyeb Rahim  who has stated that the island of Abu Musa and the islands of Lesser and Greater Tunbs are part of the United Arab Emirates? How do you respond to Mr Rahim's accusation that  Palestinians reject Iran's "occupatuion" of these islands "as we reject the Israeli occupation and resist it,".


As an ardent supporter of the Palestinian cause are you not disappointed that there has been no expression of solidarity by any Palestinian representative, official or academic in relation to Iran's sovereignty over the so-called disputed Islands, the name of the Persian Gulf or even Khuzestan (formerly called Arabestan) as being under the sovereignty of Iran? 

Is there a Palestinian Pendare Nik (Or Republican, as you are now called) who comes on a web-site forum on a daily basis advocating Iran's inviolable sovereignty over its terrirory?

The only remedy is Israel's returning to her pre-67 international borders, signing the NPT, and helping the sane world in bringing the Zionist war criminals to justice in the Hague.


Islamist Rapists

by Fred on

The interested to see the connection between the Islamist Rapists’ ideology of "managing the world"  and the Brotherhood might want to read the Head Rapist Khamenei’s translation of  Sayyed Qutb.

Qutb’s ideas are the backbone of Brotherhood and the Islamist Rapists.
