Retired Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin is warning that Islamic Shariah law already is in the United States, and is forming a cloud over the future of the nation.
Boykin, addressing a packed house at a synagogue today in Stoughton, Mass., said, “There is a threat to this country from Shariah and the Muslim Brotherhood,” noting the Muslim Brotherhood has had a presence in the U.S. since at least 1962.
“The new Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi, said he joined the Muslim Brotherhood in 1978 while he was in the United States of America. People who say that the Muslim Brotherhood is not in America are not dealing in reality,” Boykin said.
He said even Muslims pay a price for being indifferent to the agenda of the radical Muslim Brotherhood.
“Muslims who are not pushing for Shariah in the United States are pushed aside and don’t have a voice. They’re often marginalized in their mosques and sometimes not allowed to participate,” he said.
Boykin also says that Shariah law has deep ramifications for the United States.
“People say that Shariah isn’t going to be a threat in the United States. Fifty-three cases in 28 states have been decided by Shariah law at the appellate level,” Boykin said.
“There are groups and websites in the United States pushing for Shariah law. They’re dedicated to spreading it and Mark Steyn has said that’s what’s happened in Europe.”
He continued, “The Europeans didn’t take the threat seriously and now Steyn has said that it’s not going to be more than a generation before Europe is overcome.”
Boykin told the crowd of the Muslim Brotherhood’s master plan for the United States.
“The Muslim Brotherhood is working to control the dialogue in the United States, ensuring that people don’t talk about Shariah or its objectives for the country,” he said.
“It’s gone into the deepest halls of our government too. It was no less than FBI Director [Robert] Mueller that had a March meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood. The leader of the Brotherhood complained about the counterterrorism training manual,” Boykin said.
“In response, Mueller allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to expunge over 1,000 documents from the training manual,” Boykin said. “So please don’t say it can’t happen here. You’ve been told a lot of lies and you’ve been told it’s a religion of peace. You’ve been told that Islam and democracy are compatible and that’s a lie.
In an exclusive interview with WND, Boykin addressed related issues:
"We’ve been told we all worship the same God. That's a lie. My God, you can have a personal relationship with. With Allah, you can't have a personal relationship," he said.
He noted that the roots between Israel and the United States go deep, and it's a necessary alliance for the United States to honor.
He also blasted the Obama administration for its neglect of Israel and for its failure to take Iran seriously.
"We make a major mistake if we think Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a clown. He is deadly serious," Boykin said.
"People who think he's a clown like Hugo Chavez are dead wrong and know nothing about the theology of Ahmadinejad," Boykin said.
Boykin says that Ahmadinejad takes seriously the Islamic eschatological belief in an apocalypse of the Jews followed by a return to the final imam.
Yet, there's more.
"Academia has been infiltrated. Churches have been infiltrated. The first Muslim Brotherhood organization in the United States is the Muslim Student Association," Boykin said.
Boykin said this as a professor at Luther College proclaimed that he believes Jesus was Muslim.
Boykin then turned his attention to the political relationship between the government and Israel.
"The last four presidents have actually harmed the country's relationship with Israel, but this one is especially bad," Boykin said. "This administration has told the Israelis to go back to the 1967 borders, and that’s like telling Israel to commit national suicide."
The general had some very harsh words for the way Obama personally has treated Israeli leaders.
"We welcomed the Chinese to the White House. We had an official state function and rolled out the red carpet," Boykin said. "But if some reports are correct, the president made Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sit in a room by himself for about an hour while the president went off and did something else.
"No president has ever done that to a sitting Israeli head of state," he said.
WND reported recently that Israel and Iran may already be fighting a proxy war in the Sudans, with Israel supporting South Sudan and Iran developing deeper ties to Omar al-Bashir in Sudan.
A war between Iran and Israel is a matter of deep concern for Boykin.
"Prime Minister Netanyahu may be waiting to see if Obama is re-elected. If Obama is re-elected, the Israelis may be willing to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities," Boykin said.
"If Obama is re-elected and he doesn't have to worry about another four years, Israel will be on their own to have to act apart from any U. S. help which will likely not be forthcoming in a second Obama term," Boykin said.
Boykin also has stated that a war between Israel and Iran is inevitable, and the U.S. needs to stand with Israel.
Boykin also talked about similar concerns in the interview with WND:
"This whole issue of fighting to defend Israel is very personal to me. I try to make people understand the vital nature of Israel," Boykin said.
"As an American I am appalled at how little people in the United States know about Israel. And I am appalled at the anti-Semitism that is coming from this country," Boykin said.
"The Jews began coming to American in 1650, thirty years before the Germans and the Scotch-Irish," Boykin said.
"It was Jews who ran the British blockade in the American Revolution. The Jews fought for the independence of the United States," Boykin said. "And it was a Jewish banker who loaned the country money to keep the country solvent during the years of the Articles of Confederation."
"John Adams said the Hebrews have done more for the civilization of the world than any other groups," Boykin said.
Boykin also says the drive for a Jewish homeland may have begun in the United States during the Second Great Awakening. Christian pastors started a petition to gather support for a Jewish homeland.
The United West President Tom Trento also spoke and he warned of a cataclysmic war between Iran and Israel.
"A war between Israel and Iran is coming. The problem is that few will stand with Israel," Trento said. "Seven thousand miles from here, a piece of dirt, the Holy City, is the global epicenter of terrorism and the fight for freedom.
"We go to war with only a few who can be trusted. Few can be trusted, but two of them are sitting behind me," Trento said, referring to the rabbi and Boykin.
"You in Stoughton are so fortunate to have a rabbi who has the heart and academic background – the heart of a lion and the will of a warrior," Trento said.
