The organizations profiled in this section of Discover The Networks are divided into two categories:
(1) The first, "Allies of Islamo-Fascism," consists of organizations that ally themselves ideologically with the Muslim Brotherhood and other jihadist or Islamo-supremacist groups which seek to: (a) implement Sharia Law in the United States and other non-Muslim countries; (b) establish Islam as the supreme faith worldwide; and/or (c) reestablish the Islamic Caliphate.
(2) The groups in the second category, "Apologists for Islamo-Fascism," do not typically share the Islamist/jihadist goals cited above. In a variety of ways, however, these groups lend considerable support to Islamo-fascists by running interference on their behalf and helping them achieve their more immediate objectives.
For example, such apologists strive -- in the name of “civil liberties” -- to obstruct the anti-terrorism efforts of law-enforcement and intelligence agencies. In the name of “human rights,” they fight aggressively to protect suspected terrorists from detection, capture, and prosecution. And in the name of “social justice,” they contend that Muslims, whom they depict as “victimized” by widespread discrimination and violence, should receive special protections and privileges to counterbalance the ravages of an allegedly anti-Muslim society.
The apologist groups characterize Islamic terror and jihad as a battered culture's unfortunate but legitimate responses to the provocative injustices of the West. They depict America's war on Islamic terror as an immoral, racist enterprise that unfairly smears all members of a largely peaceful and tolerant faith. And, denying that Islamo-fascism even exists -- let alone that it poses a genuine threat to America and the West -- they dismiss anyone who calls attention to such a threat as a “racist” or an “Islamophobe.”
Though Islamo-fascists and their Western apologists clearly embrace very divergent sets of values, they are united by one overriding impulse: a desire to fundamentally transform the existing social order of America.
