Jihadi Attack on Synagogue Highlights Info War & Massive Islamic Movement Operations in Texas

by John D. Guandolo

The jihadi attack in Colleyville, Texas (Tarrant County) on the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue during services on Saturday – the Jewish Sabbath – was not merely a hostage situation that “ended well,” but is a part of a U.S. Islamic Movement strategic operation that is ongoing.

As UTT (Understanding the Threat) detailed just one week ago in an article entitled “The Jihadi Movement is Alive and Well and Untouched in America,” the U.S. Islamic Movement’s key leaders and organizations are waging a war inside the United States, and are making great strides to split America and let it collapse in on itself.

[Note: In August 2020, UTT published “The Takedown of Texas” – a report on the significant jihadi and communist activities in Texas as a warning to Texas leaders. That report can be found HERE.]

It should be noted that many of the key jihadi leaders and organizations involved in the setup of Saturday’s jihadi attack on a synagogue, and who will surely be involved in the propaganda campaign that follows, were identified by UTT in “The Takedown of Texas” as being hostile, in violation of federal and state laws – e.g. conspiring to overthrow the United States and Texas – and an immediate threat to the citizens of Texas.

These same hostile entities – U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, Council on American Islamic Relations, American Muslims for Palestine, Islamic Circle of North America, Muslim American Society, and others – are a part of an international effort to free Al Qaeda terrorist Aafia Siddiqui.

This effort also includes senior Pakistani government officials working with the U.S. and International Muslim Brotherhood.

Information Warfare

Getting the terrorist Aafia Siddiqui released from prison is not the endgame of the Islamic Movement. This entire war being waged against the United States by the Islamic Movement is primarily an Information War fought in the non-violent realm. Violence is used to advance the much more effective non-violent efforts.

The issue is never the issue. Deception is at the center of the Islamic Movement’s operations. Their leaders and operatives have insinuated themselves into all levels of our society as UTT has detailed in numerous articles, books, videos, and reports.

The Islamic Movement’s stated objective is to wage “Civilization Jihad” and get our leaders to do their bidding for them. The Islamic Movement does this by controlling how American leaders at all levels of society understand Islam and perceive the leaders of the Islamic Movement. By portraying themselves as friendly and helpful, suit-wearing jihadis insinuate themselves into specific areas of American society to deceive, manipulate, gather intelligence, and undermine.

This is how the Islamic “outreach partners” get American pastors, governors, businessmen, rabbis, police chiefs and others to believe an understanding of Islam which is exactly opposite of what muslim children are taught about Islam in U.S. Islamic schools, like the Islamic schools in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, Irving, Plano, Colleyville, and across Texas.

“The duty of muslim citizens is to be loyal to the Islamic State…If anyone dies in jihad they will automatically go to paradise.” What Islam is All About – most widely used textbook on Islam in U.S. Islamic Junior High Schools – Found in Texas mosques and Islamic organizations

The Islamic Movement (1) softens the battlefield, (2) launches the attack, then (3) controls the narrative after-the-fact thus advancing their political and civilization-jihad objectives. Sharia drives everything.

The Case Against Aafia Siddiqui

Since these Islamic organizations and their leaders call Aafia Siddiqui a “political prisoner” and an example of the gross injustice of America’s judicial system, let us look at the facts of Siddiqui’s case.

The affidavit sworn out against Aafia Siddiqui was sworn by a female FBI agent named Mehtab Syed. The facts in this matter include:

*On July 17, 2008, Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani national, was discovered by Afghan National Police outside the governor’s compound in the Ghazni Province of Afghanistan acting suspicious.

*In Siddiqui’s bag were: documents detailing how to build explosives and chemical/biological/radiological weapons, numerous chemical substances in liquid and gel form sealed in bottles and glass jars, details of landmarks in the United States, lists of military assets, and other information.

*After Siddiqui was taken to an Afghan facility, U.S. military and FBI personnel arrived to interview her. Prior to the interview, Aafia Siddiqui grabbed an M-4 rifle and attempted to kill the U.S. personnel screaming “allah u akbar.” An interpreter grabbed her weapon as she fired 2 rounds, and one of the military Warrant Officers returned fire striking Siddiqui. As she was wrestled to the ground, Aafia Siddiqui was screaming that she wants to kill Americans.

This is the woman being defended by prominent Islamic leaders and organizations like Oussama Jammal and the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), Nihad Awad and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Faizan Syed and CAIR Dallas, Naeem Baig and the Islamic Circle of North America, ICNA Dallas, Dr. Osama Abuirshaid and the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Omar Suleiman, Linda Sarsour, and Dallas area mosques like the Valley Ranch Islamic Center (Irving, TX) and the East Plano Islamic Center (Plano, TX), led by senior U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leader Yasir Qadhi, and many more.

Omar Suleiman is especially noteworthy since he is a long-time Muslim Brotherhood leader with national influence living in the Irving, Texas area. In July 2019, UTT wrote a detailed article on Suleiman which can be found HERE.

Omar Suleiman has been working with the designated Foreign Terrorist Organization Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to actively seek the release of the terrorist Aafia Siddiqui. See one of the videos of Omar Suleiman calling for the release of this terrorist HERE.

“We should all be very careful not to be colonized by something which is coming from this consumerist society (America)…it should be us with our understanding of Islam, our principles, colonizing positively the United States of America.” Dr. Tariq Ramadan, Grandson of Muslim Brotherhood Founder Hassan al Banna, speaking at ICNA-Dallas Fundraiser, July 27, 2011

Groundwork: Interfaith Outreach

The key groundwork laid in Texas to make the full impact of jihadi attack on the Congregation Beth Israel successful from the jihadis point of view, aims at pacifying the Christian and Jewish communities while eliminating open dialogue about the truth of Islam. This is primarily achieved through Interfaith Outreach which, in the United States, is controlled by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood – specifically by Hamas/CAIR, IIIT (International Institute for Islamic Thought), and ISNA (Islamic Society of North America).

Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker of Congregation Beth Israel is a politically hard-left rabbi who has been a leader of the “interfaith outreach” around the DFW area, especially with jihadi organizations like the Islamic Center of Southlake (ICS) and the Islamic Center of Colleyville, also known as the Islamic Association of Mid-Cities (IAMC).

Both ICS and IAMC teach that all muslims must obey sharia, which requires muslims to wage war against non-muslims until sharia is the law of the land across the world. These organizations collect zakat, which is obligatory financial giving, one eight of which goes to support jihad, legally defined in U.S. law as “terrorism.”

The muslim participants in “interfaith outreach” only do so to bring non-muslims to Islam and subvert the agendas of the synagogues and churches.

The Setup

In 2021, Hamas/CAIR began a nationwide campaign to free the Al Qaeda terrorist Aafia Siddiqui.

Hamas/CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood organizations hosted events calling for the release of the terrorist Aafia Siddiqui in Houston (9/6/21), New York (10/20/21), Boston (10/23/21), and a joint rally in Washington, D.C. for Siddiqui and cop-killer Imam Jamil al Amin on 11/13/21.

On 9/6/21 Hamas/CAIR hosted a Siddiqui rally in Houston, Texas at the Pakistani Consulate calling Pakistanis in the community to rally behind Aafia Siddiqui since she is a Pakistani national.

On 9/18/21, Hamas/CAIR hosted a “Free Aafia” rally in Tarrant County Texas at the Federal Medical Center where the terrorist Aafia Siddiqui is being held.

On 11/10/21, CAIR-National hosted a livestream discussion entitled “Injustice: Dr. Aafia and the 20 Year Legacy of America’s Wars” hosted by Hamas/CAIR Texas Director Faizan Syed and Linda Sarsour.

On 11/14-11/16/21, Hamas/CAIR Texas Director Faizan Syed went to Capitol Hill for meetings with Members of Congress to press for the release of terrorist Aafia Siddiqui.

On 12/6/21 the East Plano Islamic Center in Plano, Texas hosted a discussion entitled “In Pursuit of Freedom for Aafia Siddiqui.” Speakers included: Hamas/CAIR Texas Director Faizan Syed, Aafia Siddiqui’s sister Fowzia Siddiqui, Aafia Siddiqui’s attorney Marwa Elbially, and senior U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leader Yasir Qadhi.

It should be noted that Aafia Siddiqui was quite open about her hatred for Jews, and normative and universally taught Islamic doctrine teaches that Jews must be killed. See video HERE.

Another noteworthy data point is the fact the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, a major driver of the “Free Aafia” effort in the United States, works closely with the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Council of Britain (MCB).

The Jihadi Attack

Malik Faisal Akram is a 44 year old sharia-adherent muslim and British citizen from Blackburn, Lancashire who came into the United States in the last few weeks even though British authorities report he has a criminal record. The area around Akram’s hometown has approximately 45 Islamic centers/mosques, many of which serve the large Pakistani community.

It is reported Akram arrived in the United States with very little, thus he required immediate support. British authorities have stated Akram voiced his desire that he wished he could have been on one of the plane on 9/11/01 which plowed into the World Trade Center.

Saturday morning, January 15th, Malik Faisal Akram entered Congregation Beth Israel during services and took 4 people hostage.

The very fact that a sharia-adherent muslim committed jihad in a synagogue on the Jewish Sabbath during service speaks volumes about the “perpetrator,” for those who are trained.

In the end, Akram was killed and the 4 hostages safe. In the aftermath, British authorities arrested 2 British teenagers in connection with the attack and Akram. No further details have been revealed.

Civilization Jihad By Their Hands

The U.S. Islamic Movement’s strategy is to get U.S. leaders at all levels to do their bidding for them. Hence, why they have conducted outreach to all areas of society for decades. The following represent comments by U.S. officials which demonstrate a lack of understanding of the threat, and/or a support for the Islamic Movement’s narratives:

Matt DeSarno, FBI Special Agent in Charge, Dallas Field Office: “I do not have any information right now that indicates that this is part of any kind of ongoing threat…we do believe from our engagement with this subject that he was singularly focused on one issue, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community, but we’re continuing to work to find motive.” Full comments HERE.

UTT RESPONSE: An investigator trained in normative and universally taught Islamic doctrine would understand that Malik Faisal Akram was a jihadi who, by his very nature, hates Jews and is commanded to kill them. The motive, therefore, becomes self-evident and the attack has everything to do with a jihadi taking hostages in a synagogue on the Sabbath during services.

Colleyville Mayor Richard Newton: “At times like these it’s important that we open our hearts and reflect on the fact that individuals with hate in their hearts do not represent the vast majority of people who share their same religious beliefs. The sad reality is that this event was undertaken by a single delusional individual.” Full comments HERE.

UTT RESPONSE: What evidence does the mayor have that “the vast majority of (muslims) do not share” Akram’s views about Jews, jihad, and sharia? All of the Islamic schools in the DFW area teach muslim children that jihad is 1 of the 3 duties all muslims must consistently fulfill, and global polling data shows huge percentages of muslim want to live under sharia and impose it on others. If Akram’s actions were done in accordance with normative sharia, who can he be called delusional?

Joe Biden: “I also told (the Attorney General) that I wanted to make sure we got the word out to synagogues and places of worship that we’re not going to tolerate this.”

UTT RESPONSE: Joe Biden’s National Islamic Advisor during his entire campaign was Farooq Mitha, a Board Member of the Hamas organizations Emgage. Hamas’ openly calls for the destruction of Israel and the killing of all Jews. UTT’s sources inside the White House inform us the Muslim Brotherhood is writing and controlling Mr. Biden’s responses to the Colleyville jihadi attack.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel: Over an hour after Malik Faisal Akram’s demand to have terrorist Aafia Siddiqui released was put out in the media, Michigan’s AG was blaming white supremacists. See the video HERE.

UTT RESPONSE: This kind of response is the intentional outcome of a hostile information campaign advanced, in large part, by many elected democrats – who overtly support Hamas in the United States – and use the “issue” of white supremacism to take the focus off the Islamic and communist Movements.

CBS News 11 Dallas: CBS Dallas read the press release from the designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations Hamas doing business as CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) about the hostage situation in Colleyville, TX.

UTT RESPONSE: Several of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood – ie “JIHADI” – organizations also published press releases condemning the hostage taker. Those are all called “lies” or “deception,” but “propaganda” is actually a more accurate word. Also, CAIR IS HAMAS. (Click the link and learn)

Modus Operandi: The Islamic Propaganda Machine Turns On

In the wake of this jihadi attack in Texas, the template used for every other event was put into place, and:

  1. Several of the most prominent U.S. Muslim Brotherhood organizations – USCMO, CAIR, ISNA, and others published press releases condemning the attack.
  2. The family of the jihadi, and others, raised the issue of mental illness.
  3. The 2 jihadi mosques in the area – Islamic Center of Southlake and the Colleyville mosque (IAMC) – both offered their “prayers” and concerns and touted the interfaith outreach, with several Islamic leaders going on television to discuss how wonderful “Rabbi Charlie” is.
  4. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reported he called Rabbi Cytron-Walker’s wife and spoke with her. He then reported he spoke with Omar Suleiman, who, along with other “faith leaders,” was with the Rabbi’s wife as well. Mayorkas remarked, “(The “faith leaders”) presented a shining example of a fundamental principle: an act of hate, an act of violence that targets a particular group victimizes us all.”

The members of the U.S. Islamic Movement, working in tandem with their allies in the communist Movement and other witting and unwitting third parties continue to significantly advance forward towards their ultimate objective in this war because American leaders do not understand this enemy’s doctrine, strategy, lines of operation nor their modus operandi.

Many good men and women worked diligently this weekend to do their duty to the best of their ability. However, that is not enough when locales like Wichita, Kansas, Tampa, Florida, Nashville, Tennessee, Colleyville, Texas and others have organized networks of jihadis working daily to take down this nation using a very different form of warfare than the average American understands.

What Comes Next

The January 6th investigations and the Islamophobia Campaign are strategic distractions to keep Americans’ eyes off what the U.S. Islamic Movement has been up to. Now you have a glimpse.

In the near future expect exponential increases in the push for more interfaith outreach, the call for laws against speaking ill of Islam, and the continued assault on the Rule of Law and America’s Founding Principles.

The re-establishment of America’s Founding Principles in Law & Government while flushing enemies of liberty out of counties, is the way to victory.

Get Trained & Get in the Fight OR Fund the War Effort

We win this war at the local level. While many people are distracted by Washington, D.C. and what Congress is doing, communist and jihadis are planting roots in your community.

Understanding the Threat trains citizens, police and local officials how to identify these hostile networks and rip them out of local neighborhoods and counties. Police and local officials will continue to hold the status quo unless citizens demand they get trained. You must stop what you are doing, get trained, and take back your community.

  1. Go to UTT’s CONTACT PAGE and tell us you want to bring the UTT Team to your community to train citizens via our INTO ACTION training program which gives citizens all the tools they need to flush jihadis and jihadi organizations, and the communist organizations as well, out of your county!
  2. Click HERE and read and listen to what police who have gone through UTT’s “Understanding and Investigating Hostile Networks” course say about how critical it is to their department. Encourage your local sheriff and police chief to bring UTT in to train them and stand with them when CAIR and their communist allies from the Southern Poverty Law Center pressure the police not to get trained.
  3. Fund the war effort. Click HERE and make a monthly recurring donation of at least $10. It will make a big difference in this war effort in the long run.
  4. Share UTT’s work with everyone you know and let them know we were the first and continue to be the only organization in the West training citizens, police and elected officials in how to take back their community.

  7. Count the mosques in Texas around Houston and Dallas……”fighting evil and doing good”, a study of sharia defines who is considered
    a “infidel” , then pause and realized how clever are words that have two meanings that are not recognized since they are spoken as if they could never deceive by outreach so we are always caught off guard or worst silenced and truth is now hate speech.
