UTT Answers the Critics

UTT Answers the Critics

Many jihadi and Marxist organizations frequently publish overtly defamatory and false comments about Understanding the Threat (UTT) and its President John Guandolo.

UTT would like to inject some truth into this situation.

The following is a list of the common attacks UTT endures, followed by UTT’s responses:

“Guandolo has made a career out of…promoting ludicrous Islamophobic conspiracy theories.”

In fact, UTT offers $1000 cash and the removal of relevant material we teach and publish to anyone who can bring something to our attention that is not true about sharia’s authority in Islam and what it says, or about the Muslim Brotherhood’s Jihadi Movement in the United States and their modus operandi.

UTT has made this offer on TV, radio, and in direct emails to U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leadership for over 3 years.

So far…no takers.


“Guandolo has made a career out of demonizing Muslims…”

UTT believes speaking truth about the evil and barbaric system that is Islam’s sharia brings light to muslims trapped in this system and who are enslaved by it.  This, to us, seems the best way to demonstrate love and compassion to the muslim community, as opposed to calling a barbaric system “good” and “peaceful.”


“Guandolo’s trainings are little more than anti-Muslim witch-hunts.”

In fact, sheriffs, police chiefs, and prosecutors have opened cases as a direct result of UTT’s 3-day “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Threat” for police, intelligence professionals, and military personnel.  One police officer who attended UTT’s 3-day program identified a wanted Al Qaeda terrorist wanted by the FBI less than one week after the training, and stated UTT’s training was the reason he was able to do so.


“At an event in 2011, Guandolo claimed mosques were fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Property records, leadership at U.S. Islamic centers/mosques, investigation by UTT, and testimony in federal courts reveal approximately 80% of the over 3000 mosques in all 50 United States are controlled by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.  The Muslim Brotherhood calls Islamic centers/mosques the “axis” of their Movement, and their stated objective is to wage jihad to establish an Islamic State under sharia – the same objective as ISIS and Al Qaeda.


“Guandolo was dismissed from the FBI.”

John Guandolo left the FBI on 1 December 2008 after being recruited out of the FBI by the Department of Defense for a significant pay increase and significantly more responsibility.  His departure from the FBI was voluntary and honorable.


“Among his many bizarre and Islamophobic claims…that former CIA Director John Brennan was a secret Muslim…”

In fact, in February 2013, UTT’s John Guandolo was the first to break the story on a TV show hosted by The United West’s Tom Trento discussing U.S. government personnel with direct knowledge of John Brennan’s conversion to Islam when Mr. Brennan was the CIA Station Chief in Saudi Arabia in the 1990’s.  In June 2017, former CIA Station Chief Brad Johnson publicly stated on the Glazov Gang TV show that many people in the CIA told him they heard and knew of John Brennan’s conversion to Islam.

“Among his many bizarre and Islamophobic claims…that Muslims are “obligated” to lie, and that it is “unprofessional” for officials to seek information about Islam from Islamic religious leaders (imams).”

Authoritative Islamic law – sharia – mandates lying by muslims to non-muslims when the objective is obligatory.  In Islamic law, jihad is obligatory.

The Um dat al Salik (Reliance of the Traveller) is authoritative sharia approved by the highest authority in Islam – Al Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt.  It states:   “Speaking is a means to achieve objectives…it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible…and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory.”

Islamic scholars and all sharia mandate lying by muslims to non-muslims when the goal is obligatory.  Advancing Islam is obligatory.  Jihad is obligatory.  Islamic leaders who know and understand sharia lie to non-muslims to advance Islam and have been caught doing so on numerous occasions.

Therefore, it is unprofessional for a non-muslim to use an Islamic scholar or Imam as the source of understanding of Islam because Islamic scholars and Imams know sharia and, therefore, understand their duty under sharia to lie to police chiefs, pastors, Members of Congress, Presidents, school board officials, and others in order to advance Islam.


Guandolo claims most Islamic organizations in America are a threat.

The largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history – US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Dallas 2008 – was the culmination of a 15 year FBI investigation.  The evidence in this case reveals there is an “Islamic Movement” in the United States primarily led by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

The evidence also reveals the most prominent Islamic organizations in the United States are a part of this Muslim Brotherhood network whose stated objective is to wage “civilization jihad” until they establish an Islamic state (caliphate) under sharia (Islamic law).

The Muslim Brotherhood’s published By-Laws also reaffirm this.

Evidence in the US v HLF trial reveals the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood was ordered by MB headquarters in Egypt to create a Palestine Committee to be a node for the terrorist group Hamas in the United States.  The USMB created four (4) organizations to fulfill this mission, including the HLF and CAIR.

US v HLF and other evidence reveals MB groups in America include, but are not limited to:

Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)

Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)

North American Islamic Trust (NAIT)

Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)

Muslim Students Association (MSA)

Muslim American Society (MAS)

Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA)

International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT)

Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)

Muslim Youth of North America (MYNA)


It is UTT’s hope the reader will read and study these responses so he/she can boldly speak truth using these responses as a guide.

UTT encourages our readers and followers not to be angry with our adversaries.  They are doing what they do.  We should pity them that all they have are lies and ad hominem attacks.

They certainly do not have the truth.

  1. […] of the significant support and attention UTT received from this past Tuesday’s article entitled “UTT Answers the Critics” we are re-publishing a video from UTT’s YouTube Channel in which UTT President John Guandolo […]

  2. Western, Christian civilization prevailed at the Siege of Malta, the battle of Leptanno, pushing the Moors out of Spain, and defeated the Ottoman Empire in WWI. The United States will defeat this threat, and will likely have to bail Europe out yet again. That is our duty, and it is noble.

  3. Agree with all the comments above…John Guandolo knows the facts, the MB, the Quran verses and if complaints about the facts is disturbing to the CAIR an organization created to protect a very clever deception for a peaceful, tolerant sharia it surprises no one….they are protecting words written if exposed to light would not be favorable to spread no matter how Pres. Obama described it and the comments were taken as sound by the uninformed but not the aware. It is amazing the number of organizations created…..they all had a purpose, spread Islam. If only the media would be required to research and not repressed…..by information warfare that has plenty of money. In my opinion .

  5. It doesn’t matter what those who are trying to discredit John are saying, WE the people who are AWAKE and very AWARE of what the muslim agenda is, it is not just John who is out there trying to give voice to this serious issue about what the muslims are about and up too. You would have to be blind not to see what these people are really about and what they practice, live, and die for. I don’t give a dam if there are some good ones, I personally believe they are a drain on our system that they are constantly reaping benefits from and they absolutely do not want to assimilate into our society nor follow our rules and laws. Instead they are a hinder upon us with their constant complaining of being offended by our free speech, Holidays, American flag in schools, our eating of pork, and so on. Pushing their Islamic bullshit in our childrens schools, I am the one offended by all of them coming to my country disrespecting my country, abusing our system, and wanting us to bend for them… These people should not be allowed to come to the US, they do not contribute a dam thing, and want to live by their sharia laws not ours they ARE NOT compatible with our way of living period…

  6. The answer to the existential threats of public enemy number one @ CAIR is Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist networks first and foremost people like the Skipper aka John.following each other on twitter not only is the counterinsurgency edification of me rodeo rosary aka Dave but anyone whom protecting and defending the constitution from all enemies foreign and, it’s perfectly clear domestic Ikhwan organizations just pay attention Understanding The Threat


    Given that the avowed purpose* of Islam’s establishment of sharia-adherent settlements worldwide is the “elimination” and “destruction” of every non-Muslim civilization on the face of the earth by surreptitious methods comprising sabotage, anarchy & subversion, until the “Infidel” either acquiesces to draconian enslavement under Sharia or is murdered by jihadist savages for refusing said fate, the foregoing array of false accusations by the Muslim Brotherhood and others simply reflect the success UTT’s efforts are having on behalf of the American people, and portends too yet another of the recorded failures toward which said garden-variety fascistic gangsters are unwittingly slithering.

    E.g., Austria, the current German speaking & mainly Christian federal republic in central Europe comprising nine economically vibrant modern States, was extricated from the control of the barbaric Islamic Ottoman Empire by virtue of its historical participation in the Battle of Zenta, in 1699; I.e., the worst defeat the marauding forces of Islam had ever sustained, which marked the end of its regional domination.

    And in the theoretical context of “what goes around, comes around”, two days ago the Chancellor & Vice Chancellor of Austria announced that since “parallel societies, political Islam & radicalization have no place in our country” they had ordered the shutdown of 7 mosques and the expulsion from Austria of up to 60 Turkish funded Imams & their families as part of a crackdown on political Islam, I.e., actions which they described as “just the beginning”.

    *Anyone who wishes to embark on a complete reading of Islam’s sadistic declaration of war on the United States, which includes a comprehensive litany of what sharia-adherent Muslims have planned for they and their children, may (for a nominal handling & postage fee) order a personal Arabic-to-English translated verbatim copy of said document, the original of which was seized in compliance with a federal search warrant from a subterranean basement in Annandale, Virginia, by Special Agents of the FBI, in 2004, by contacting http://www.securefreedom.org, to request: GOVERNMENT EXHIBIT 003-0085 3:04-CR-G U.S. v. HLF, et al.
