This report is making national news today and deservedly so.
CAIR-Can, now re-branded as the NCCM, and named as a Muslim Brotherhood front, is on the warpath about this article –Terrorists in our midst, penned by the report’s authors – Anti-Muslim diatribe promotes false suspicion – so you know they’re doin it right;)

The report was written by Tom Quiggin, a member of the Terrorism and Security Experts of Canada Network (TSEC).

A Horizon Scanning project on the convergence of extremist ideologies is being readied for distribution in late 2014.
This project was funded internally by the TSEC network. There is no government, corporate, media or foreign money involved. The report may be accessed directly at the TSEC site.

While I am not familiar with the Tamarrud movement in Gaza, and thus I cannot comment at length on their goals/actions, I think it is newsworthy that they have made this call and that they are willing to fight against the Muslim Brotherhood incarnation in Gaza, the terrorist organization Hamas.
Let’s keep our eyes on this one!
Yes, this lecture series is a little long – but very, very informative.
If you have read the Koran and the Hadith, and if you are familiar with Shariah, you will be impressed by the depth of Stephen Coughlin’s background knowledge – but there is still a lot of new material there for you because he draws the connections between the beliefs rooted (rightly or wrongly, but demonstrably held by the majority of pro-Sharia Muslims worldwide) in these and the decision-making and behaviour of Islamic political entities.
For example, he is one of the few people to have predicted the ‘Arab Spring’ months before it happened and accurately described it as a Muslim Brotherhood-driven action. He also accurately predicted other events many had considered ‘unpredictible’ – and in this lecture series, he walks us through the steps that made the events predictable.
If you are unfamiliar with the underlying doctrine, Stephen Coughlin provides an accurate grounding in their belief system and demonstrates its doctrinal roots. He also explains the very different concepts meant by Islamic political bodies when they use terms we consider familiar: words like ‘human rights’ (Sharia), ‘terrorism’ (killing of a Muslim without Sharia approval), and ‘freedom’ (freedom from ‘the laws of man’ in favour of the laws from Allah alone), ‘religion’ (Islam and Islam alone as Muhammad’s revelations abrogated all other religions) and more.
What is quite appalling, however, is his description of the depth of willful ignorance of all this by the politically correct decisionmakers who are directing the ‘war on terror’… His frustration is plainly visible and his Cassandra complex and the accompanying frustration are, at times, palpable.
Yet, it is precisely this willful ignorance among our decisionmakers and intellectual elites poses a clear and present danger to protecting our culture, our society and our very basic human rights.

A duly elected member of the new Egyptian government appeals the President’s decision to the courts for a fair ruling: for this, he is attacked by a mob of Islamist Muslim Brotherhood thugs who tear his clothes and, had the police not intervened, would have torn him to pieces.
This does not bode well for the future lives of regular Egyptians…
It is difficult for us to see what is happening inside Egypt, which is why it is good to listen to the Egyptian thinkers themselves:
It seems that Egypt has gone to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is acting as the political wing of the military.
For some Egyptians, even the Saudis are too ‘Westernized’ and much too pro-Israel.
To clarify: Islam teaches that religious leaders always outrank any monarch: that is why the crowd mocks the Saudi royal house.
End well, this will not…
