The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend: Islamic Terrorists & American Extremists

The Edward P. Murrah Federal Building was bombed by an American extremist.

Islamic Terrorists and American Extremists May Share More than Just Ideology!

The attacks of September 11th, 2001, have forced us to expose the threat of Islamic terrorists throughout the world and within the borders of the United States. But is our search overlooking an interesting, but deadly, coalition? We all understand the ideology that links many radical groups, across the world, together at least, in spirit but can such ideology, which is anti-Semitic and anti-American in nature, go further than we can imagine.

Ideology or more?

When we speak of Islamic radicals we say they are “anti-Israel and anti-West” but when we try to explain the doctrine of American right wing extremists we say “anti-Semitic and anti-government.” I say, “What is the difference?” While suicide pilots from al-Qaeda devastated this great country on September 11th in a terrorist act resulting in a horrendous toll of death and destruction never before seen, extremist Timothy McVeigh, linked to the right wing National Alliance, committed, what was once dubbed “the most horrific terrorist act on American soil” prior to September 11th, 2001. Could these two terrorist organizations be linked in some way beyond ideology? Well, according to counter-terrorism experts within former President Clinton’s cabinet, McVeigh, or a member of his terrorist conspiracy met with members of Al Qaeda in the Philippines before the attack on the Edward P Murrah Building in Oklahoma City. Investigative news reports document the actions of none other than Terry Nichols, McVeigh’s accomplice as taking several trips to the Philippines during 1990 during the time that Ramzi Yusef, the 1993 World Trade Center Bomber, and other members of his cell, were there. Another connection or coincidence emerged immediately after the bombing when the FBI put out a BOLO (Be On The Look Out) for two Middle Eastern males leaving the scene of the bombing in a brown Chevy pickup with tinted windows. The BOLO was later canceled and no explanation was ever given.

Neo Nazi/Islam Connection

For many years, the rhetoric of a right wing neo-Nazi named Albert Huber was a favorite of American Right-Wing extremists. His virulent words, condemning Zionists and discounting the holocaust, aroused the hatred in their sordid minds. He was a regular at Aryan Youth, and Nation of Islam, meetings. He preaches that neo-Nazis and Muslims around the world should join ranks to defeat the Zionists. Interestingly, Huber, now called Ahmad, converted to Islam during the 1960s. In the mid-1990s, Huber, a Christian-born Swiss journalist, once sat at the feet of Ayatollah Khomeini at an Islamic gathering in Tehran, Iran where he lectured to the attendants. He has, according to sources, in recent months, been approached by representatives of Osama bin-Laden and praised for his teachings. Huber describes the September 11th attacks as “counter terror against American-Israeli terror” but denies having any connection to terrorists.

An international investigation, sparked by September 11th and ordered by President George W Bush connected Huber to a list of terrorist financiers. Huber is on the board of directors of al-Taqwa, an international funding network supplying funds to, and laundering money for, al-Qaeda. Since the September 11th attacks, Huber and others connected to al-Taqwa have had their assets frozen and are under investigation for supporting terrorism. I wonder – has money he received for lecturing before Aryan Youth and neo-Nazis, in the United States, been used to fund the September 11th attacks?

Islamic Terrorism and the American Street Gang

As far back as 1986, a link existed between a Chicago Street gang called the Black P Stone Nation (Blackstone Rangers), also known as El Rukns (meaning the The Foundation in Arabic), and Moammar Khadhafy of Libya. The leader of the Black P Stones, Jeff Fort, who had previously converted to Islam in prison, was contracted to commit terrorist acts in America at the behest of Khadafy. In fact, Fort, who was controlling the gangs operations from prison at the time, sent several of his gang’s leaders to Libya to negotiate the terrorist contract. The gang leaders actually met with Moammar Khadafy and agreed to blow up American Airlines and US government buildings in exchange for $2.5 Million. Fortunately for us, Fort and several members of his street gang, needed to buy the right weapons to facilitate the attacks. While conducting the final stages of a purchase of weapons, the Black P Stones discovered their weapons dealers were federal agents. Fort and several members of the gang were arrested and charged with Conspiracy to Commit Terrorist Acts against the US and Weapons Violations. Several members of the Black P Stones became fugitives are believed to be hiding in Libya.

    The USA supported terrorism and let drugs get over here and now that it has hit home in the US the US wants to put an end to terrorism. I say first stop the drugs from coming in the US, I know easier said then done. As long as we have corruption in the Government the US will never get rid of terrorism. Some politicians talk a good game but they can not stomach whats really needed to defeat terrorism. We are not putting all the resources that's needed to bring terrorism in this country and else where to a halt. I'm a Desert Storm Vet and I served in South Korea for 13 months. Take the hand cuffs off the military and the law enforcement departments and let them do what they do and I think a change would be forth coming.

    As a decendant of early colonials, a Gulf War Veteran and police officer for the last 18 years; you're statement is absolutely ludicrous. There is a huge difference between freedom fighters (the minute men) and terrorist nuts who want to force their religious ideology upon others. The minute men fought against religious tyranny and taxation. The minute men today would be the very people who fight against terrorism.

    Great article. Terrorist activities from within will continue to be a threat from groups such as ALF and ELF. Also, we must be aware of possible connections between groups within merging interests with those overseas.

    A very well written article and timely one. We the people need to not only look to the outside, but also from within our borders to find those who are hell bent on destroying the American way of life. The outsiders will reach out to those disenfranchised people within and use them and their knowledge to bring harm to the US. Those that are into political appeasement will help in this matter. Keep your minds open, ear to the ground and eyes scanning for the next event to come. Stay safe and alert.

    Outstanding article and great insight! It's important for us not to get tunnel-vision on one specific group. Those who claimed to be Muslim before they took out the Towers were still fanatics along with the others before the attacks as they have been after the attacks. And the other fanatics are still out there. We don't want to get blindsided by any other extremists or extremist groups due to tunnel vision and lack of perspective.

    I think we are going to see more of the Neo-Nazi threat in the Obama era. And this articleis dead on....Nazis hate Jews...want to see Israel wiped out.....hate American democracy.....and have a global network of terror. I hope every police department with proven white supremacist gangs are keeping tabs on their activities. There have been links between Neo-Nazi groups and Hiz'b'Allah

    Excellent article. Regardless of what group, religion, agenda, etc. that a radical belongs to, they all threaten our freedoms. Let's all be vigilant and keep America safe.

    Domestic terrorism ...where we could be attacked from within our own borders unless we stay sharp through continual education, preparation and training. Excellent article.
