By way of introduction, I am a retired Foreign Service Officer who worked for the Department of State and served abroad for a quarter of a century.
At a recent meeting, a question was posed to me about something I had never thought of or considered nor to my knowledge has any other prognosticator addressed this. The question: Is it true that a lot of State Department officials are Moslem?
The Department of State, the CIA, the Department of Defense and many other agencies have a continuing need for linguists (over 165 languages and dialects). We need to train our people in languages to enable them to perform their duties. There are two primary institutions for language training, the State Department’s Foreign Service Institute located in Northern Virginia, and the Pentagon’s Defense Language Institute located in Monterey, California.
The length of a language course depends on the complexity of the language. For example, an American can learn rudimentary “soft” languages such as Spanish, Portuguese, or Italian in five months, French in six months, etc. Medium languages such as German, Russian, or Scandinavian languages can be learned in eleven months. “Hard” languages are Korean, Mongolian, Japanese, Chinese, and Arabic require a much longer training cycle of up to three years for high levels of proficiency. Only people with a very high language aptitude can begin to qualify for such extensive and costly training.
Arabic’s learning course begins with a year in the United States at one of the aforementioned institutes. The second year is a total immersion program in an Arabic speaking country where the student lives away from and does not associate with many other English speakers, has no American TV, radio, newspapers, etc. By the end of this second year, the student has achieved some fluency. Only the very top 10% of this group are moved into a third year, usually at Al-Azhar University (and Mosque) in Cairo, Egypt. Throughout this training, instruction is primarily provided by Imams.
When I was assigned to the American Consulate in Istanbul, I received two hours per day of Turkish language training, and then spent some of my leisure time making friends with Turks where I could practice over tea at café’s, etc. From one of these contacts, I was introduced to an English speaking Imam at Istanbul’s Blue Mosque where I received more Turkish training for free. My Turkish language instructor at the Consulate was, of course, an Imam.
An Imam is highly trained in Islam. Imams who speak English are further trained in Dawah (Moslem Missionary Work) and serve as propagandists in order to spread Islam, to recruit others to follow Islam, to convert either openly or covertly to Islam.
For example, the CIA Director is very likely a Moslem convert who reportedly swore his oath to Islam while he was stationed in Saudi Arabia. When sworn in, he refused to place his hand on a bible, but instead used an original draft of the constitution dating from 1787 – before it included the Bill of Rights. A Moslem’s oath of allegiance to Islam supersedes any oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Therefore, isn’t CIA director Brennan sworn to defend Islam to the detriment of America? Isn’t that a traitor?
Through the Arabic language program, all students are subjected to intense pressure by their Arabic teachers to adopt – to swear an allegiance to Islam by repeating the Shahada oath three times. There should be no doubt that some if not many of our State Department, CIA, Military, and other agencies’ Arabic and other world of Islam linguists are covert converts to Islam as is CIA Director Brennan.
My answer to the question is: Yes, indeed, a lot of people involved in our national security organizations have unfortunately sworn their allegiance to the enemy – Islam. They are Americans born and raised in our communities, and also are Moslem Brotherhood appointees. Their numbers are probably in the thousands, and they are working steadily to subvert our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and our republic. They need to be ferreted out and removed from their positions and either deported or exiled.
Let’s not forget that subsequent to the Moslem sneak attacks on the United states on 9/11, certain people in Washington decided that we needed to bring hundreds if not thousands of Arabic speakers into play at the National Security Agency, CIA, and other agencies to translate thousands of daily Arabic language communications into English. To the detriment of the American people, this was done hastily and with the wrong people advising the president and others in accomplishing this task. Unfortunately, Moslem Brotherhood (the enemy) operatives were put in charge of this massive hiring program. Thousands of fluent Arabic speaking Christians and Jews were excluded totally from this program. Only Moslems got the jobs, and I can assure you that valuable, important intelligence was not properly translated (if at all) and what did go forward was with the intent of misinforming and misleading our top officials in the White House and elsewhere. We are suffering severe consequences of this foolishness, and if we are to survive as a viable republic, need to rectify this quickly, or perish.
And, yes, I was pressured to repeat the Moslem oath, the Shadah and convert to Islam. By this point, I had learned enough about Islam and had the good sense to refuse and to walk away from that pressure.
