If the first amendment was followed, it would be addressed. For education, get involved and strengthen a secular common core.
We have laws already in place to prevent all this garbage. Use them.
An Egyptian magazine claims that six American Islamist activists who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy.
The Dec. 22 story published in Egypt's Rose El-Youssef magazine (read an IPT translation here) suggests the six turned the White House "from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood."
The story is largely unsourced, but its publication is considered significant in raising the issue to Egyptian readers.
The six named people include: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, which the magazine identifies as a Brotherhood "subsidiary." It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the "file of Islamic states" in the White House and that he provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.
Elibiary, who has endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb, may have leaked secret materials contained in Department of Homeland Security databases, according to the magazine. He, however, denies having any connection with the Brotherhood.
Elibiary also played a role in defining the Obama administration's counterterrorism strategy, and the magazine asserts that Elibiary wrote the speech Obama gave when he told former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave power but offers no source or evidence for the claim.
According to Rose El-Youssef, Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that it says comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi.
He also participated in the organizing committee of the Critical Islamic Reflection along with important figures of the American Muslim Brotherhood such as Jamal Barzinji, Hisham al-Talib and Yaqub Mirza.
Regarding al-Marayati, who has been among the most influential Muslim American leaders in recent years, the magazine draws connections between MPAC in the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure.
Magid heads ISNA, which was founded by Brotherhood members, was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security. The magazine says that has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI.
Rose El-Youssef says Patel maintains a close relationship with Hani Ramadan, the grandson of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, which it identifies as "a large Brotherhood organization.
Salam al-Marayati is a one of the founders of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)1
and the current president of the organization.
2 In 1999, then-House Democratic Leader
Richard Gephardt nominated al-Marayati to serve on the National Commission on
Terrorism. Gephardt later withdrew the nomination after a public backlash highlighted
al-Marayati's defense of terrorist acts and the groups who carry them out.3

Dear guohua, flower of Asia,
You're quite right; immigration, Jihadist infiltration, drug laws, and others, depend on the willingness of the government to enforce them.
If the government is not going to enforce the laws, then they should be honest and repeal them. Having unenforced laws brings disrespect to all laws.
Muslim Brotherhood in America operates in a Spread of Islam Phase 3 country
Phase 1: Arrival
When the first Muslims arrive in a Western democracy, they keep a low profile and make few if any demands on the host nation. Many quietly work as students, business owners, professors, doctors and other professionals, making good first impressions and gaining vocational respect.
Phase 2: Recognition
When a sufficient number of Muslims gather, they request recognition of the Sharia law being applied within their own community. To preempt resistance and suspicions, they publicly condemn "radical" Islam and even seek well-publicized inter-faith dialogue and gatherings.
They position Islam as a religion of peace whose Sharia law is not a threat to the host nation, especially since it would never be applied outside the Muslim community. Often, they are supported by the host nation's un-informed leaders who are eager to be seen as "progressive".
Phase 3: Penetration
When Muslims gain critical mass in a few cities, they begin to penetrate the host society. They create an alphabet soup of front and umbrella organizations that inflate their reach and unity, and use them to lobby the government, support (pro-)Muslim political candidates, conduct public relations campaigns and file lawsuits against alleged islamophobia, pressure public schools with Muslim students to hold prayers towards Mecca, endow Islamic studies departments at universities, place imams as 'chaplains' in armed forces and prison units.
Sharia The Only SolutionPhase 4: Confrontation
When Muslims become a significant minority in the host country, they demand incorporating into its legal system elements of the Sharia law. Often, this demand is made while "rogue" elements from the Muslim community threaten or engage in violence (e.g., Europe and UK).
Phase 5: Imposition
When the Muslim population becomes the majority and/or Islam gains control of a nation (e.g., Taliban in Afghanistan), Sharia law is imposed on the host society, which is then locked down against non-Islamic influences, including Christianity. The ideal Islamic state is Saudi Arabia, where Sharia law is the only law of the land and enforced without mercy.
Like the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe and UK, the Muslim Brotherhood in America operates front groups across America among which the Brotherhood's power and leaders, most of them clean-cut and many of them American-educated, move around to avoid detection, litigation and/or prosecution.
The first Muslim Brotherhood organization in America was the Muslim Students Association (MSA), founded in the early 1960s at the University of Illinois.
Other prominent Muslim Brotherhood groups in the USA include the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), through which the Brotherhood lobbies and 'advises' the highest levels of the US government, including the White House and FBI (see Islamization of USA) from its office on the Capitol Hill; the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), the funnel through which Saudi oil money is used to build mosques and Islamic schools across the United States; and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).
The most notorious Muslim Brotherhood front group in the United States was the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation (HLF), formerly the largest Muslim charity in the country. In late 2008, HLF and its officers were convicted of financing Hamas and sentenced for up to 65 years in prison.
The alphabet soup below is a partial list of the Muslim Brotherhood front organizations and affiliates in the United States. The major ones are in bold-face. Those on the prosecutor's list of unindicted co-conspirators of HLF to be prosecuted next are highlit in yellow:

YOU HOPE FOR A BLOODBATH? Sorry THAT IDEA renders your opinion here to irreversibly crap now. First you DON'T fight just hide then you wish OTHER'S to die.
How about I DON'T WANT ANYONE AT ALL to die but I PERSONALLY would enjoy fighting Jihadists(They are TERRIBLE in a scurmish). Unfortunately our cultures are only as spiritually advanced as our leaders. We just get stuck with the bill. There is a large group of people who are in a murder cult that has latched on to Islam and are TOO ingrained to separate the two,as such scum requires a parasitical grip on that faith. We will kill the innocents they HIDE behind too. Sorry about that it just go old and LOCAL muslims didn't stop them.Progressives are upholding them as a contrary to TRADITIONAL American values( You call us COWBOYS) but that won't help if they show up EVERYWHERE to get shot at once we SEE them. Bombs,bugs and small incidents don't work in the US. Natural disasters do worse.
I saw another post that seems to cheer for America's COMEUPPANCE and no,we won't let it. 300 trained troops held PERSIA at bey. THe modern JIHADIST doesn't number that many and WE have FAR better tools.We only have to put up with others who are sad we win and of course we are ALL slaves to the banks if JIHADIST S really WERE holy warriors they would have stopped the Meddicci or hit SWITZERLAND instead of New York to attack the MONEY system that IS the west. But they DIDN'T,making them incompetant and doomed to failure at the expense of THEIR populations because we kill better.
