From the moment the second plane crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, Americans have been on a journey we never wanted to make. A particularly malevolent enemy has altered all our lives, and the one thing we can’t afford to do is ignore this evil.

As in every era in which America faced a dire threat, there are heroes among us who put themselves on the frontlines. Two such men are David Gaubatz and Paul Sperry, authors of a new book, “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.” This is one of the most important books I’ve read in many years, and I would go so far as to say you can’t afford to be without it.

Gaubatz, a former agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, went undercover to pry open the secrets of radical Muslim front groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR. What he and Sperry have uncovered and set forth in their book is nothing short of apocalyptic. They reveal a plan to take over America that is so diabolical, one struggles to separate it from a Tom Clancy novel.

Gaubatz’s crack team of operatives, tasked with infiltrating high-level Muslim groups, included his own son, who put himself in harm’s way for many months as he served an internship at CAIR’s national offices.

“Muslim Mafia” reads like a novel, but this father-son patriot team engaged in all-too-real spying on America’s worst enemies in a generation.

In fact, one of the chilling things uncovered is that radical Muslims targeted America decades ago, not recently. And as the book states, their methods are varied, ranging from outright acts of terror to political influence:

“[CAIR’s] access to power will only widen now that its allies and apologists command both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue,” the book states.

Chilling, my friends! Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison’s boast that Muslim representatives will mushroom in the coming years should alarm all of us, if we don’t want to go the way of Europe, where the contemptible Shariah law is being openly discussed as a legitimate means of governance.

Gaubatz himself was on a steep learning curve after 9/11, eventually realizing that he had been duped by CAIR, which promotes itself as a mainstream, moderate representative of Islam in the United States.

In fact, Gaubatz came to realize, “CAIR is the locus of political power for the secret Muslim Brotherhood in America – the parent of Hamas, al-Qaida, and other terrorist groups.”

The Muslim Brotherhood was birthed from the strain of radical Islam known as wahhabism, and directly led to the emergence of vicious killers like Yasser Arafat and Osama bin Laden. Egypt today struggles to control the Brotherhood, although paradoxically, the movement is sheltered under the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak.

Difficult though it may be for us to internalize this, the cruel worldview born in the desert winds of Arabia has now crossed oceans; because of that, America stands at a crossroads. Truly, the spirit of Muhammad is alive and well and operating in our beloved United States. Our front-line heroes know this.

As an inside operative, Chris Gaubatz, using the name “David Marshall,” managed to smuggle sensitive documents out of CAIR’s Washington offices. Among his findings:

  • CAIR is running an influence operation against members of key homeland security committees on Capitol Hill and planting Islamist spies in congressional offices.
  • Stung by recent terrorism charges, CAIR is losing members and dues and
    operating in the red; in fact, it is struggling financially to the point where it has
    to rent out one of the three floors it operates at its Capitol Hill headquarters.
  • In spite of claims it represents all Muslims, CAIR routinely discriminates
    against Shiites and other Muslims – including its own employees – in favor of
    Sunni Muslims.

Although CAIR works overtime to present itself as moderate – at the same time viciously attacking critics and whistleblowers – Gaubatz uncovered even more disturbing facts, such as the 9/11 timeline: In CAIR’s logs for September 2001, there are no visitor entries; it is blank!

This entire, substantial volume – “Muslim Mafia” – makes for dynamite reading (bad pun intended), but Chapter 15 is particularly gripping: “Faking Out the Infidel.” In it, we learn that “the terrorists in suits are adroit at manipulating politicians and the media through skillfully parsed propaganda. Bluntly, they’re good liars.”

The authors do us a great service by telling it like it is, without resorting to euphemisms. Easy-going Americans sometimes need that kind of clarity.

Shukri Abu Baker, U.S. Brotherhood leader, was recently sentenced to 65 years in prison for supporting terrorism. He has stated quite clearly that the goal is to “deceive your enemy.” In this case, the enemy of Islam is the infidel, whether he is Christian or Jew.

An example of “moderates” who are anything but is the case of Sami al-Arian, a White House guest of both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. At the same time he claimed to be moderate, he was “deceiving his enemy,” such as during his speech at a Cleveland mosque in which he exhorted his fellow true believers, “Let’s damn America; let’s damn Israel; let’s damn their allies until death.”

This is the face of “moderate” Islam.

David and Chris Gaubatz, along with their team, which includes author Sperry, have presented us with a gift: the gift of discernment that can lead to action as we try to avert the most extreme form of existential threat America has ever faced.

Get “Muslim Mafia,” absorb its message and disseminate it widely. All our futures depend on it.
