WHAT WE'RE UP AGAINST
Followers of radical Islam have declared jihad against Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, non-Muslims, and secularists - simply because they regard us as infidels. They even target Muslims whom they regard as insufficiently “pure.”
The warriors of radical Islam are not only "over there." Tens of thousands of Islamic militants now reside in America, operating in sleeper cells, attending our colleges and universities, engaging in influence operations aimed at the media and government. They are here - today. Many have been here for years. Waiting. Preparing.
What’s more, there are Islamists throughout the world, and here in America, who may not engage in violent jihad, but are committed to “stealth jihad” or “cultural jihad.” Their modus operandi is summed up by this statement from The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic memo, entered into evidence at the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial in 2007:
“The Ikhwan [Muslim brothers] must understand that all their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and `sabotaging’ their miserable house…”
Omar Ahmad, co-founder of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, made his intent clear in a July 4, 1998 San Ramon Valley Herald article: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America.”
The ultimate goal of both violent jihad and stealth jihad is the same: the advance and imposition of Islamic sharia law throughout the world. Only the means to the end is different.
Islamists are being aided and abetted by the purveyors of political correctness - those in government, the media, academia and Hollywood who are apologists for and enablers of radical Islam, who refuse to acknowledge the supremacist political ideology embedded within Islam that motivates both the violent jihadist and the stealth jihadist.
Political correctness can be annoying, frustrating, even exasperating. In the struggle against the threat of radical Islam, political correctness will literally kill us.
WHAT IS ACT! FOR AMERICA?
ACT! for America is the nation’s largest national security movement. It is an issues advocacy organization dedicated to effectively organizing and mobilizing the most powerful grassroots citizen action network in America. We are committed to informed and coordinated civic action that will lead to public policies that promote America's national security and the defense of American democratic values against the assault of radical Islam.
The fight against radical Islam is a fight Brigitte Gabriel knows all too well. Ms. Gabriel was born in Lebanon and raised as a Christian. When the Lebanese Civil War broke out, her family and her Maronite community came under vicious attack by Islamists. They promised to destroy her, and some 100,000 Christians died as a result.
She was nearly killed by a mortar. Her home was destroyed. She lived in a bomb shelter for seven years. Most of her childhood friends were killed. That's how Brigitte Gabriel knows about this fight.
The democratic values of Western Civilization, exemplified by the celebration of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, are under attack from radical Islam, exemplified by its celebration of death, terror and tyranny. This is an enemy that is determined, relentless and intent on imposing its ideology and sharia law on all freedom-loving people everywhere - including the United States.
WHY ACT! FOR AMERICA IS NEEDED
Brigitte Gabriel founded ACT! for America to be a citizen action network that will be the front-line voice for freedom-loving Americans everywhere. Our goal is to create a powerful grassroots organization of local chapters and citizens...
• Committed to the defense and advocacy of the democratic values that made America great;
• Committed to the dissemination of information about what radical Islam really is, what it believes, what its goals are, how it plans to accomplish them - and why freedom-loving people need to know this;
• Committed to our national security and defense and advancing public policies that will protect our national security from the multiple threats posed against our nation by radical Islam;
• Committed to holding our elected representatives accountable to uphold their oath of office to defend the United States and its Constitution from ALL enemies, foreign and domestic - which clearly includes Islamists committed to violent and stealth jihad and the advance of sharia law.
WHY DOES OUR STRUGGLE MATTER? IT MATTERS BECAUSE...
If we don't win the war against radical Islam other issues won't matter at all.
We won't have an economy to worry about.
We won't have equal rights for all.
We won't have our cherished freedom.
And we will live under sharia Law.
WE CAN WIN. WE MUST WIN.
America stood up to the terror and tyranny of Nazism -- and won.
America stood up to the terror and tyranny of Communism - and won.
If we will stand up to the terror and tyranny of radical Islam, we will once again win.
ACT! for America has been founded so Americans do not have to stand alone against the threat of radical Islam. Join us today
and become part of this growing movement of freedom-loving Americans who will not stand by while our lives and liberties are under assault.
