DOD's Complicity in the Islamization of America

by Reginald Firehammer

Perhaps it should not be shocking that a highly respected U.S. military specialists on Islamist law should be fired from the Department of Defense (DOD) at the behest of a Muslim. Paul Sperry's 2005 book, Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives have Penetrated Washington, alreaady documents the extent of Islamist influence and infiltration in US prisons, the military, universities, and key government agencies such as the FBI, the Pentagon, the State Department, and even the White House. We already knew that, but there is something much more frightening about this story.

It begins with the, "Muslim Brotherhood," (Al-Ikhwan) and that began in 1928, in Egypt. "Al-Banna [the founder] based his ideas ... on the tenets of Wahhabism ..." and began "jihadia training."

From the beginning the objective of the Brotherhood has been "to install an Islamic empire ruled under Sharia Law and a Caliphate across the Muslim world and ultimately the entire world, through stages designed to 'Islamisize,' incrementally, targeted nations."

How successful have they been? In Europe it is fait accompli. But what about America?

In his 2004 article, "The Islamic States of America?, Daniel Pipes was already warning of the clear intention of the Brotherhood to turn, "the United States into an Islamic state." "The Muslim Brotherhood has been active in the United States since the 1960s. ... " and, "has succeeded in setting up numerous US front groups since the 1990s that should be regarded as hostile and a threat to the United States, according to Stephen Coughlin, a lawyer and military intelligence specialist on the Pentagon Joint Staff. ... In a September 2007 memorandum, Coughlin explains that many US Muslim aid and civil rights groups viewed as moderate by the Justice Department and other government agencies are linked to the pro-jihadi Muslim Brotherhood. The groups are also engaged in influence and deception operations designed to mask their activities and the overriding goal of their organization, that being the advancement of Islamofascist doctrine within the United States. [Remember that name: Stephen Coughlin.]

Among the organizations that are fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood are the Muslim Students Association, the North American Islamic Trust, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the American Muslim Council, the Muslim American Society, the International Institute of Islamic Thought, the Islamic Association for Palestine, the Palestine Committee, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and, the Holy Land Foundation.

It was the recent failed government trial of the Muslim Brotherhood charitable front organization, the Holy Land Foundation, which supports HAMAS terrorism, that brought to light the supposed "moderate" Council on American-Islamic Relations CAIR is another Muslim Brotherhood, terrorist-supporting, organization.

Foxes in the Chicken Coop (or Muzzies in the Pentagon)

The rest of this story is about three people, people in the most sensitive and powerful positions related to America's defence: Gordon England, Hesham Islam, and Stephen Coughlin.

Gordon England, is the US Deputy Secretary of Defense, the second highest defence position in the country, "delegated full power and authority to act for the Secretary of Defense and exercise the powers of the Secretary on any and all matters for which the Secretary is authorized," which includes being, "the principal defense policy adviser to the President ... responsible for the formulation of general defense policy and policy related to all matters of direct concern to the Department of Defense ...."

Hesham Islam is Gordon England's senior advisor. Hesham was born in Egypt and grow up in Cairo, later moving to Iraq where his naval officer father help establish the Arabian Gulf naval academy. He married an American woman, moved to the US, joined the Navy, attended Officer Candidate School, and retire 20 years later as a Navy commander.

What kind of advice does England's advisor give him? “'He’s my interlocutor,' England said. 'He represents me to the international community. He assists me in my own outreach efforts, and he’s extraordinarily good at it.'” [Emphasis mine.]

In case you've forgotten, this is the Department of Defence, as in "defending the country against foreign aggression, terrorists, or other agents bent on harming the country or its citizens." The DOD is not a public relations agency. It's purpose is to prepare for and wage war if it is necessary. The joint chiefs of staff of the Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines are the operating branches of the DOD.

Hesham is a Muslim who, "works closely with the Muslim-American community." "England said he rarely disagrees with Islam’s guidance. 'After all,' he said, 'if you have a good doctor, you listen to your doctor, right?'"

The problem is, having Hesham as advisor is like having the fox as advisor on how to keep the chickens safe from foxes. No doubt it was Hesham who advised England to meet with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which just happens to be one of the Muslim Brotherhood front organizations listed above.

Maj (USAR) Stephen Coughlin is "the Islam Law ‘go to guy’ on the Pentagon Joint Staff. Coughlin is the author of a brief on Islamic law and Jihadist doctrine that has recently been cleared by both the Joint Staff and DIA for publication," according to Jerry Gordon. Coughlin "is to my knowledge the only Islamic Law scholar on the Joint Staff," LTC Joseph C. Myers has written. That is, he was on the Joint Staff.

It seems Maj Coughlin, "wrote a memorandum several months ago based on documents made public in the federal trial in Dallas [see above] that revealed the covert plan by the Muslim Brotherhood, ... to subvert the United States using front groups." The memo apparently complained about the fact members of one of those front groups, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), had been hosted by Mr. England at the Pentagon.

"Hasham Islam confronted Mr. Coughlin during a meeting several weeks ago [and] sought to have Mr. Coughlin soften his views on Islamist extremism. [Emphasis mine] Mr. Coughlin was accused directly by Mr. Islam of being a Christian zealot or extremist 'with a pen.'"

Under pressure of Hasham Islam, and apparently other "pro-Muslim" officials, Stephen Coughlin has been fired and the Pentagon has lost the U.S. military's most important specialist on Islamist extremism.

Did You Hear About It?

If, as most Americans do, you get your news from the Mainstream Media, unless you are an insider, or happened to read the two Bill Gertz articles I quoted above in The Washington Times, it is unlikely you've heard anything at all about this story. I checked all of the following MSM sources, and unless they have reported something subsequently, not one mention the sacking of Stephen Coughlin: ABC News, Associated Press, CBS, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Reuters, and CNS

Those of us who get our news from the Internet found plenty of information about this story. The links below contain more information and other viewpoints about it. The one thing they all agree on, when it comes to the ideological aspects of the war on terror and militant Islamism, it looks like we have already surrendered.


The Washington Times may be the only Paper in the country to carry this story. Here's another good article from that source:

"A Purple Heart in war of ideas?"

Here are more good resources. Some may be linked in the story above as well.

Well, as a Christian, and a pretribber, I won’t be around when these demons take over. Heck, we VOTE THEM IN OFFICE! This shouldn’t be surprising.

Scary! And this business, in general, has been ongoing since just after 9/11, when George Bush proclaimed Islam to be a *religion of peace*. He went all out to ensure CAIR that their every wish would be respected and has not wavered one iota from this position, insane as it is. Homeland Security, the FBI, DOD—all have been infiltrated ; it wasn*t too long ago that Bush in a speech stated that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam all believe in the same God! This is madness. My question is, why?

I know this is not exactly philosophy. It's sort of what happens when there is no good philosophy.

Well, I know why the Muzzies are doing what they’re doing, but why our government is acting like it has blinders own I can only imagine. I asked someone else today, the same question. She said she could only think of two reasons, blackmail or bribes. I’d bet on the second, but think most of it is because they are just ideologically ignorant—and evil.

For whatever crazy reason, the CinC on down get away with it because we the people let them. Many of us complain, but many more don*t; their attitude is denial or ignorance (bliss), or they know they will get either some soothing platitudes, a promise to *look into it* or no answer at all. We should be in the streets. In Washington, one million strong, raising hell. It will come to that I think, and some of us will be killed by our own government. If it doesn*t happen, then eventually the Islamofascists will take over and we will be dhimmis, as is happening in Europe. Our America will be gone, and so will its *leaders*-—Switzerland, S A, Australia, safe anyway with their money. ..>>>This sounds radical but it*s what I think.

Nice work on this and this kind of thing is only going to get worse unless America figures out who they are fighting. Some folks already know...

Thanks for the ping, and posting this. I have been following this as it broke on the Internet. This article was the most productive in content thus far, and is very helpful.

If Stephen Coughlin thinks his work to this point is worth something, he needs to hit the radio talk show circuit right away so this incident gets wider notice. Has Rush Limbaugh mentioned this yet?

"...It's time we recognized the nature of the conflict. It's total war and we are all involved. Nobody on our side is exempted because of age, gender, or handicap. The Islamofacists have stolen childhood from the world." [FReeper Retief]

"...That the totalitarian force pitted against freedom wears a religious makes this civil war among mankind all the more difficult to engage. Loving freedom as we do, it seems reprehensible to deliberate against a religion. But this is no ordinary religion as it demands absolute obedience of all to their religion at the cost of freedom itself." [FReeper Backtothestreets]

I do not think so. Cannot find anything on his site. Disappointing. No one seems to even be aware of this thing.

Google "Stephen Coughlin" + Pentagon and you'll see it's getting some air time on the more high profile blogs. I don't think it will stay in a corner.  !

Yes, I know there is heaps online. I meant the MSM, radio, television, where most people get their news, unfortunately.

Maybe off-topic somewhat but perhaps the DoD is looking forward to a Obama/Muslim POTUS? Please follow this summary:



Raila Odinga has, in his own words, a “close personal friendship” with Barrack Hussein Obama Junior. When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi… Obama’s bias for his fellow Luo was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila’s “stooge.”

Thanks, bud. I'm pinging backhoe so he will consider archiving your post. I'm pretty confident Hillary won't make the Democrat nomination. I'm concerned Obama will make the cut. Info like this you provided will be helpful in the future.

Islamic Caliphate? Sure why not... since we don’t seem to want to disassociate from the Turks -—the dirtiest of all.

Sibel Edmonds has lots to say about the intrigues in Washington —how assets and secrets are being sold to The Turks/Pakis etc.
