“Why are people concerned with what’s happening in the little town of Oakland, Iowa?” Jorgensen said. “That question needs to be asked.” http://www.ketv.com/article/presentation-on-islamic-terrorist-groups-draws-protesters-in-oakland/12246215
Former FBI agent John Guandolo is kicking up dust in the Midwest.
After a relatively uneventful appearance in Nebraska, Leftist counter-protesters came out in numbers against Guandolo’s presentation in Iowa, which was entitled, “Understanding the Threat: the Muslim Brotherhood’s Secret Strategies for the USA.” Protest leaders were adamant about not engaging Guandolo in discussion.
“Racism and hate and white supremacy are not up for debate,” said protest leader Glenn Hurst. Instead, the protesters were determined to ignore Guandolo by attending his talk and sitting in the front rows while wearing ear plugs and rustling newspapers.
The protesters are part of Indivisible, the Left’s answer to the Tea Party — a loosely connected network of anti-Trump groups, of which CAIR is included. The founders of Indivisible do not inspire confidence, particularly when repeatedly giving evasive answers to questions about their funding. Indivisible’s co-founder, Ezra Levin, says that George Soros is not involved, but they like Soros and would welcome his assistance.

But why all the attention on Iowa? Is it because of the Iowa caucuses, the winner of which receives a boost for his Presidential campaign? Whatever the reason, groups such as American Muslim Alliance do have Iowa in their focus. AMA has moved its headquarters from Washington, D.C. to Des Moines for unknown reasons.
The American Muslim Alliance is well known as another Muslim Brotherhood front group.
“The AMA mission statement describes its goal as to “transform our pent-up frustration, anger, and pain into creative and meaningful steps towards political empowerment of the American Muslim community … to methodically gain influence in the American political system commensurate with the sum total of our skills and creativity … to organize the American Muslim community in the mainstream public affairs, civic discourse, and party politics all across the United States.” “ https://web.archive.org/web/20070127053635/http://www.amaweb.org/images/special/Mission%20Statement.pdf
The AMA is listed by Project SALAM as one of the participants in the May 6, 2010 rally in support of Aafia Siddiqui. http://www.projectsalam.org/events/05-06-10.html
During the 1990s, the AMA co-hosted a series of conferences with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Association for Palestine, the American Muslim Council, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
In 2000, AMA founder Dr. Saeed endorsed war against Israel. This led Democratic Senate candidate Hillary Clinton to refund $50,000 in donations received from an AMA fundraiser.
In 1999 the AMA co-sponsored the “United for al-Quds” conference in Santa Clara where, according to Steven Emerson, “speakers accused Israel and the U.S. of carrying out a conspiracy to kill Muslims” and “one speaker called for the death of Jews.”
In 1998, the AMA co-hosted the conference “Palestine: 50 Years of Occupation” at a Brooklyn college.
John Guandolo must be over the target, considering all the bluster he is inspiring, and try as they may, the bad Muslims at CAIR are unable to shoot Guandolo down, as this reported exchange shows.
One CAIR-affiliated woman did speak up.
She said the presenters were only teaching about the extreme version of Islam found in places like Saudi Arabia.
“I asked her to name the title of one book that teaches the other version of Islam, the moderate version. She couldn’t name one,” Guandolo said. “The whole audience gasped because they realized what was going on.”
Well, let’s hope so.
