Both Grandys built on their warnings of two weeks ago about the Islamic Circle of North America “Launch[ing A]Nationwide Shariah Education Campaign to Promote Religious Freedom and Combat Islamophobia”
“NEW YORK, March 5, 2012 – Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) announced today a national Shariah education campaign to promote religious freedom and combat Islamophobia. ICNA’s campaign, Defending Religious Freedom, Understanding Shariah, will include a 25 city education tour to introduce the Islamic faith to the American public.”
“The Truth or Taqiyya?”
Just last Monday, Frank Gaffney explained (Center for Security Policy) in his “The Truth or Taqiyya?” –
“One of the most important challenges we face as a free people is understanding the true nature of – and threat posed by – a totalitarian, supremacist Islamic doctrine its adherents call shariah. So, it would seem to be good news that a $3 million public education campaign is being launched nationwide to ‘clarify’ what shariah is.
The question is: Will this campaign be truthful and helpful, or will it amount to an exercise in what is not only permissible under shariah, but obligatory: lying for the faith, or taqiyya in Arabic?
Unfortunately, since the sponsor of this initiative is one of the most virulent Muslim Brotherhood fronts in the United States, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the shariah tour will assuredly be all taqiyya, all the time. As we are seeing in Egypt at the moment, the Brotherhood is fully prepared to lie about its repressive agenda until it is too late for its opponents to resist.”

Muslim Brotherhood’s ‘Perception Management Team’
In a closely related development, Claire M. Lopez in her “Muslim Brotherhood’s ‘Perception Management Team’ to Washington, D.C.” yesterday revealed (StopRadicalIslam.org) —
“A Muslim Brotherhood perception management team is coming to Washington, D.C. Georgetown University’s Saudi-funded Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding and its Director, John Esposito, will host a delegation of Egyptian members of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party for ‘a discussion’ on April 4, 2012. Then, the group will join fellow Brotherhood-affiliates from Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia the next day at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for a program to be moderated by Nathan Brown, Professor of Political Science and International Affairs at George Washington University and a senior associate in the Middle East Program at Carnegie.”
“If it is possible to attend these sessions at Georgetown University or Carnegie, it is sure to be instructive in the methodology of the influence operation. The words will be perfectly calibrated to resonate with freedom-loving people who cheer to see the oppressed rise up chanting slogans about ‘democracy.’ The reality is otherwise…but because the Brotherhood’s influence within America’s own national security leadership circles, academia, and society as a whole already is so great, it can be difficult to realize that the pre-violent jihad by stealth is far more lethal to the West than the violent jihad. The violence will come anyway (at the end), but now is the time for ‘civilization jihad,’ unless delegations like this one are seen for what they really are and met with some pointed questions.”(Underscoring Forum’s.)

The back and forth between anchor Jeff Katz and the Grandys reveals in plain words the implications of the Shariah marketing tour. But the word needs to get out to Main Street politicians.
“I am assuming Congress, the Senate, and governors around the country are standing up and saying ‘Oh no, we are fighting back’ ” declared Katz.
“Actually, they’re clueless,” replied Fred Grandy.
