In June, Americans concerned about the ever-increasing threat of radical Islam will have the rare opportunity to rub elbows with top legislators and other patriots engaged in the battle to defend national security.
The ACT! for America National Conference and Legislative Briefing will be held June 27-29 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., and will feature a long list of speakers, including a former CIA director, a former jihadist, bestselling authors and over a dozen members of Congress, including Rep. Allen West, R-Fla.
ACT! for America President Brigitte Gabriel, a Lebanese immigrant who came to the United States after losing her country to militant Muslim fundamentalists during the Lebanese Civil War, explains the conference is more than just a chance to hear speakers; it’s an opportunity for everyday Americans to get involved in the defense of their country.
Read the how-to guide on stopping the advance of Shariah in “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practice Guide to the Resistance,” and get the inside story on how Shariah is making its stealthy advance in “Muslim Mafia.”
“Come join me, chapter leaders and members of ACT! for America from around the country in our nation’s Capital for two and a half days of information, inspiration, empowerment and action!” Gabriel declares in an online brochure for the conference. “Please give me the honor of telling you personally how much I appreciate your patriotism and your support.”
ACT! for America is a grassroots organization founded to give voice to opponents of radical Islam in America. It’s stated mission is to create a network of chapters to inform, educate and mobilize Americans, while engaging in lobbying and grassroots action to hold elected representatives accountable, develop coalitions to increase effectiveness and speak out in defense of America, Israel and Western civilization.
Gabriel is one of the leading terrorism experts in the world, an advisor to international world leaders, a regular analyst on a number of national networks and radio stations and has been named one of the top 50 most prominent speakers in America. She’s also the author of two New York Times bestselling books, including “They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.”
In a recent column for WND, Gabriel demonstrated her expertise in breaking down strategies a number of front groups are using – often with the complicity of the Obama administration – to not only minimalize and obscure the threat of radical Islam in the U.S., but also undermine the FBI’s ability to counter it.
“While our national attention is focused on jobs and the economy,” Gabriel writes, “Muslim Brotherhood front organizations in America are furiously working behind the scenes, sometimes with the assistance or acquiescence of top government officials, to change how we respond to the threat of terrorism.”
The result, she concludes, “is an ongoing, systematic purge by the Obama administration of references to radical Islam in the counterterrorism strategic threat assessments and training materials. Unless enough Americans are alerted to this purge and voice their opposition, the damage to our national security will be incalculable.”
Developing opportunities to “alert Americans” and “voice their opposition” is what the ACT! for America National Conference is all about.
Planned speakers include the following:
- Former CIA Director James Woolsey
- Former CIA operations officer Clare Lopez
- Bestselling author and antiterrorism investigator Kenneth Timmerman
- Former jihadist Dr. Tawfik Hamid
- U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla.
- Richard Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center, a leader in the fight against “legal jihad”
- At least a dozen other members of Congress

“Whether the specific threat is violent jihad, stealth jihad, the advance of sharia law, the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, or the scourge of political correctness, which is enabling the rise of radical Islam, ACT! for America stands ready to take action,” the organization boasts. “Through informed community action, education, public policy initiatives and grassroots lobbying, ACT! for America is successfully combating the threat of radical Islam.”
