Presidential candidate Donald Trump is catching flack for saying he saw thousands of Muslims in America celebrating the attacks on 9/11 on television. Major media outlets have been quick to denounce Trump as being nothing but wrong. Today Dr. Ben Carson, another GOP contender for the position of POTUS backed Trump up. The media storm against them is relentless!However, the major media is being far from truthful in its accusations that Trump was wrong. There are several recorded actions of Muslims in America supporting terrorism.
Muslim Students’ Association West Conference in January 2011 at UCLA, attendees recited a pledge, "Allah is my lord, Islam is my life, the Quran is my guide, the Sunna is my practice, Jihad is my spirit, righteousness is my character, paradise is my goal. I enjoin what is right, I forbid what is wrong, I will fight against oppression, and I will die to establish Islam."

New York State Prison Chaplain Warith Deen Umar (aka Wallace Gene Marks) was removed from his position and barred from entering by Gov. George Pataki in 2003. CBS News reported:
Umar began his activities as a prison chaplain in 1975. New York Gov. George Pataki barred Umar from prisons in 2003, after the Wall Street Journal reported that Umar had expressed support for the 9/11 terrorists — even stating that Muslims "who say they are against terrorism secretly admire and applaud" bin Laden's mass murderers. (According to Umar, the Koran does not forbid terrorism even against the innocent. "This is the sort of teaching they don't want in prison," he said. "But this is what I'm doing.") <emphasis added>
Presidents Clinton and Bush met with Abdurahman Alamoudi as a representative of American Muslims. He led the American Muslim Council, and the Muslim American Society. In 2003, Alamoudi was arrested and charged with 18 counts of federal crimes related to supporting terrorism. He is today serving a 23 year prison sentence. The Washington Institute had this to say about the man who represented America’s Muslims to presidents.
In 2000, American Muslim Council founder and former Executive Director Abdurahman Alamoodi announced at a rally outside the White House: "We are all supporters of Hamas. Allahu Akhbar! ... I am also a supporter of Hezbollah." After the President announced the closure of the HLF, which raised $13 million for Hamas in its last year of operation, the AMC condemned the action as "particularly disturbing ... unjust and counterproductive." AMC's position was predictable, given that Alamoudi attended a conference of major Islamic terrorist groups in Beirut in January 2001.
If the name Alamoudi strikes a recent cord of memory, it should. He was the founder of the Islamic Society of Boston, which the infamous Boston Bombers attended. Alamoudi had long been in jail when Boston was bombed on April 15, 2013.Trump may seem brash, and anything but restrained in his speech. But, his words of caution and warning regarding Islamic terrorism are not wrong. Dr. Carson who backed him up is one who chooses his words carefully, perhaps this should have been a clue to the American people that the major media outlets are hiding something.
This is only a smidgen of the available information on whether some Muslims in America endorse terrorist actions. There is a treasure trove of information out there supporting this argument. The leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the leaders of the Islamic Society of North America have numerous quotes on their support of Hamas that have been exposed and in the media. Was it really too hard for major media outlets to find this information to say maybe Trump and Carson are right about this?
But it all comes down to the words of Dick Cheney recorded by the Department of Defense in 2002:
"We don't know if it's going to be tomorrow, or next week or next year," Cheney said. The U.S.-led war on terrorism has had some successes at disrupting the al Qaeda terrorist network, making it more difficult for them to carry out operations, he noted, but it's almost impossible to build "a 100 percent perfect defense."
“The American people must understand the reality of the enemy we're up against," he stressed. Even if your defense is 99 percent successful, that other one percent "can still kill you."
Knowing the truth of these words gives reason to ponder the purposeful misinformation being pushed out by the major news networks on this issue! Are the major news networks working against the safety of every American?
