House of War:

The Tip of the Spear

Event Description:

"House of War: The Tip of the Spear" is a compelling live event series that delves deep into the geopolitical tensions that transcend the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, presenting Israel as the forefront of a broader historical confrontation between the Christian and Islamic worlds. This series aims to explore the underlying forces at play in global geopolitics, where Israel's outsized significance far exceeds its geographical size and population size, serving as a pivotal battleground in a much larger clash of civilizations.

Throughout history, the interactions between the Christian and Islamic worlds have shaped the course of human events, from the Crusades to the modern-day geopolitical landscape. Israel, with its unique historical and religious significance to both Judaism and Christianity, has become a focal point in this age-old struggle. "House of War: The Tip of the Spear" seeks to unravel why a group of approximately 15 million Jews worldwide, and a country smaller than the state of New Jersey with only 7 million Jews has drawn such disproportionate media and political attention and become a litmus test for broader global alliances and conflicts.

This event series will bring together experts in history, theology, geopolitics, and counterterrorism to discuss the strategic importance of Israel beyond its conflict with the Palestinians. It will examine the ideological and historical roots of the confrontation between the Christian and Islamic worlds, shedding light on the broader implications of this struggle for global peace and security.

Featuring insightful lectures, panel discussions, and Q&A sessions, the series will cover topics such as the role of religious ideology in geopolitical conflicts, the history of Christian-Muslim relations, the strategic importance of Israel in the context of global jihad, and the influence of external powers in shaping the Middle East.

By exploring the concept of "Al-Hijra" as discussed in the book "Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration: Accepting Freedom Or Imposing Islam?", the series will delve into the tactics and strategies employed by extremist groups to expand their influence beyond the Middle East, including the use of immigration, demographic, academic, cultural, and political changes as a form of ideological warfare.

"House of War: The Tip of the Spear" aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the complex web of relationships and conflicts that define our world, encouraging a dialogue that looks beyond the surface to understand the profound historical and religious forces at play. Join us for this enlightening series as we navigate the intricate dynamics of a conflict that is both ancient and alarmingly contemporary, with implications that stretch far beyond the borders of Israel.

The 1991 memo written by Mohamed Akram for the Muslim Brotherhood, discovered during a 2004 FBI raid on Ismail Elbarasse's home in Annandale, Virginia, outlined a strategic plan for the Brotherhood's activities in North America. This document, known as "An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America," was intended as a guide for establishing an effective and stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. The aim was to present Islam as a civilization alternative and support the global Islamic state. This document underscores the Brotherhood's intent to work within the societal fabric of the U.S. to promote its objectives, emphasizing a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" to eliminate and destroy Western civilization from within, according to the interpretation provided by the Center for Security Policy and the Investigative Project on Terrorism​​.

The global reach of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has evolved into a sophisticated network with branches in over 80 countries, illustrates its adaptability and the varied strategies it employs depending on the political landscape of each country. In the United States, organizations like the Islamic Association of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) trace their origins to the Muslim Brotherhood.

These entities share common financial sources, interlocking board directors, and occasionally participate in common initiatives, forming an influential network within the Muslim-American community​​.

The Muslim Brotherhood's influence in the US is part of a broader narrative that involves complex interactions among various groups and ideologies within the Muslim world and its diaspora. The emergence of figures and organizations with alleged ties to the Brotherhood and extremist ideologies raises significant concerns about the potential impact on social cohesion and national security. These concerns are magnified by the activities of certain political figures like Rashida Talib, Ilhan Omar, and their fellow Squad members, as well as the use of grassroots movements like BDS, which is influenced and financed by foreign Islamic countries with ties to terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood.

BDS grassroots movements like Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Faculty for Justice in Palestine (FJP), among others, have drawn attention for their connections to broader geopolitical and ideological movements. SJP, in particular, has been identified as a significant arm of the BDS Movement in the United States, with ties to radical Islamist and Palestinian terror organizations such as Hamas, Hizbullah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). This network is not merely grassroots but has been linked to a terror-supporting, antisemitic agenda that operates across numerous colleges and universities in the United States​​.

The radicalization process on campuses, where SJP is highly active, is not spontaneous but the result of a long period of indoctrination, with educators linked to the Muslim Brotherhood at its onset. The Muslim Brotherhood's strategy includes promoting its agenda through coalitions within American society, establishing groups like SJP as seemingly progressive organizations while pushing an agenda nearly identical to that of the Brotherhood itself.

The Muslim Brotherhood, established in Egypt in 1928, has since evolved into a global movement with branches in over 80 countries, adapting its tactics and goals according to the local context. In the West, Brotherhood affiliates have pursued goals tailored to their environments, focusing on the preservation of Islamic identity among Western Muslims and aiming to be recognized as official representatives of the Muslim community to gain political and social influence.

The linkage between these organizations and broader Islamist movements raises significant concerns about their influence within the United States. Investigations have revealed detailed plans for a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" aimed at undermining Western civilization from within, as documented in an explanatory memorandum from the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in America discovered during an FBI raid in 2004​​.

Political figures like Rashida Talib and Ilhan Omar's political activities and statements have been very concerning, particularly regarding their radical Islamist stance on Israel, and their support for terrorist organizations, and state-sponsors of terror such as Iran, Somalia, as well as bad actors in the region, like Turkey. The Squad's advancement of a radical Islamist agenda within the United States and their involvement in positions of power reflect the fragility of Western democracy when it comes to navigating the complexities and dangers that groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood pose to Western society and governments as a form of hybrid warfare.

The Squad's emphasis on supporting terrorist cause among the Palestinians has been interpreted by some as part of a broader ideological alignment that includes elements of the Muslim Brotherhood's global strategy, and their unholy alliance with leftist, socialist groups through direct connections between individual politicians and the Brotherhood's strategic goals as part of a larger, multifaceted assault on Western democracies.
